Imagine you are a lawyer for an obviously guilty client. Your job now is to defend the client in the sense of getting them a less harsh sentance. (a good thing, it is important to give the guilty fair trial and a reasonable sentance) The way you do this is through an emotional appeal to … Continue reading Romance as an Appeal to Sympathy
The suggestions this month have been about how amatonormativity has affected your wellbeing. Thank you to gracesofluck for the suggestions. When this topic came up I hadn’t really thought about the term that much, I sort of vaguely knew it was about preference for romance but didn’t know much more than that. So first job, … Continue reading August 2021 Carnival of Aros: Well-being and Amatonormativity

In this case simply painting flat colour details, slapping some strong tone on then doing … Continue reading 3d Printed Crossbowmen

What I think of as self-care and self love The first thing I will have to do is set … Continue reading Self-care
Another play about with miniature painting. This time a 3d printed manticore model from this file. I’m quite happy with some of it, the mane went well (and I just like the idea of an aromanticore) but the wings didn’t come out quite the way I had hoped. I used some liquid frost in the … Continue reading Manticore
