β€˜It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. β€˜Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. β€˜It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She’d always wanted a cat.

A little bit of soft rain and birdsong, for anyone who needs it this morning. It’s a blackbird singing, and the occasional claps are the wings of a wood pigeon.

My partner is laughing because I have my knees up to my chest but it hasn't stopped Merlin from awkwardly climbing into my unavailable lap and shoving his face into my face.

The familiar prrts a question then climbs onto me, purring.

I hug him close because I also need reassurance.

It's good to have animal friends.

Okay, so I've been requested to audition for a book that will occassionally require an Australian accent. It's mostly British though.

Not got long to audition but I might take a few days to see whether I can do a good one.

Good morning folk and friends from near and far!

Today I wish you something joyful ✨

Need to sleep but Joh and I were testing how strong I am now and I am FAR stronger than I used to be and it's very cool.

Will probably ramble about it tomorrow! πŸ’ͺ:blobcathappy:

Hey everyone, sorry to do this again, but I'm directly asking for donations right now. I'm a few weeks ahead on my bills, but I'm also within $1500 of finishing one of my student loans, but work hours are very low right now. Anything you give right now will go straight into finishing that loan, so that then I can contribute more to my household's emergency funds and grocery money.

$10 or more, give me a prompt, you'll get at least 100 words per dollar.

Hey, did I ever share the map we made years ago? Started with regular paper, soaked it in all kinds of liquids, dried in oven multiple times and crumbled it in many ways. In the end burned edges with lighter and made a map with two differently coloured inks.

Do y'all know of someone who could make a cute chibi bust of me for my Twitch channel? (yes I am paying.) I don't need a background; I'll design one myself. Black/POC priority if possible. If interested, plz PM me!

:boost_ok:

Editing my own audio narration made me hate my own mouth noises so much.

Very grateful that nowadays it's just a quick 'edit as I go' and then off to the producer to clean up properly.

Me: *stretches and yawns*

My cat: *stretches and yawns*

Mirroring is the cutest thing in cats. There's a reason they make excellent familiars! :blobcatthinksmart:

Why is it so much harder to work when someone is asleep in the same room? :oh_no:

I do not care for it.

But I do need to get to it already so ... off we go!

"A squirrel has been at the bird feeder again."

"Darn," I sighed heavily, "I guess I'll refill it."

The moment I was no longer observed, I whistled.

I turned towards the fluttering of wings and wagged my finger at it.

"You're not supposed to break into the bird feeder."

The tiny griffon squawked and puffed defiantly.

"Yes I know you're a growing bird. I'll bring you extra feed."

It stomped a paw.

"And some cheddar popcorn, yes."
