Yearly Archives: 2014

Last night I had this dream that one of my internet friends had come over to visit but probably because there’s nothing that interesting to do in my area was just like absorbed in some 3DS game off to the side and I didn’t know what to do with myself :p

Then the dream cut to another “shot” where I had apparently set up a computer with an emulator in the same room (the bedroom-turned garage, it’s way less garagey than it sounds but it’s a teeny bit cold sometimes and also full of crap, notably all over the table I’d neatly cleared off and put the flat computer monitor on in the dream);

I like how

  1. The translator turned “avant-garde” into “sans serif” and
  2. Where “sans serif” first appears is in English in the middle of a Hebrew sentence

Oh good grief how many birdmen are there in this again

  • Hughes: ordinary man who turns into an ordinary bird
  • Wings-07: anthro waxwing
  • Arkturuse: dude with falcon theme and rainbow projection wings
  • Was considering an anthro griffin-like form for a character but might go with something different
  • Jinfèng: not a man but has an association with the One Great Phoenix
  • Kate: uhhhh yeah
  • Rotator Phoenix: he has a techno propeller thing instead of wings so idk if he counts but his family name is Phoenix :p
  • Pterodaustro doesn’t count

Edit: Oops I’ve gotta add

  • Kyrielle

What is Stablehand? The December 2014 answer

Stablehand is a libre universe which will begin around a visual gamebook I’m currently developing. The goal is to give you the first fandom in which fan stuff will be 100% legal by default, no caveats (ok, two if you wanna be technical), and on roughly equal footing with canon stuff. It’s a little bit like a Wikipedia universe!

Now, the visual gamebook I just mentioned, of the same name.

It is, as someone once made me describe, a sort of “choose your own adventure with attributes”.

Carp and Observers and owlbats and dark ones,
Cloudgriffs and turtles and reindeer and blazons…
But do you recall…
The most striking voidbeast of all…

YANHA THE SNOW-WHITE SHIELDBEAST
HAD A SNAZZY BLUE-WHITE TAIL
AND A BIG HARDENED KEELCREST
WHICH COULD GUARD YOU WITHOUT FAIL
ALL OF THE OTHER VOIDBEASTS
NEVER EVER QUESTIONED “WHY”
THEY PROB’LY WOULD HAVE LAUGHED IF
THEY EVEN SAW YANHA TRY

But one voidblack everyday
The Boss of Affect came to say
My oh my how light are they
To vie that bright is quite okay

(And then he flew off on his way)

BASICALLY NOTHING’S DIFFERENT
NO ONE NOTICED IN THE LEAST
“WHY ARE THERE STILL NO ANSWERS”
WONDERED THE SNOW-WHITE SHIELDBEAST
