@elliemars 💜 🖤
@elliemars Thank you 💜 🖤 I mean I kinda know that but.. hearing it again once in a while truly helps ;___;
@sandzwerg not /quite/ what I was worrying about this time but tbh this is very helpful nonetheless bc that's also a thing I'm struggling with so thank you for sending it my way 💜
@tobias 💜 thank you!
@tobias oh that's a neat way to mentally approach that! Thank you! 💜
@katwylder I'm trying to internalize that but.. that's so hard? For me at least.. Tho in this special case, through all the replies I got so far, I remembered another thing that was very similar to my idea and the thing I saw as well and.. I do feel a little reassured now..
@Ellteo I'm only halfway through but this is immensely helpful already, thank you so much ;___;
Uh hey friends. I got a question for support...
I have this issue where when I see something that's somewhat similar to an idea of mine or sth I'd always wanted to do but never got around to do it (like a kind of OC's, an AU, etc) I get really really discouraged and the feeling that I'm now not allowed to do that anymore because someone else already did it and uh..
Any advice on how to deal with that? D:
I’ve had a lot of downtime at work, so I’ve been doodling a few of my OCs!
“-El” (they/them) is a seraph, and a pretty intense being overall. Mostly on account of angels being freaking terrifying
“The Hermit” (they/it) is a fey who is composed of a lantern and an animated deer skin. While not malevolent, they aren’t exactly the best help if you’re lost, but they will appear in dire situations.
I made up these LGBT identity words show what it would be like if the words were built only from native Germanic English roots, instead of from Latin or Greek loan-words: (1717 characters, very long) Show more
Some words for sexual orientations:

* gay (in the sense of homosexual) = same-drawn or same-fain
* gay (strictly in the sense of men loving men) = wer-drawn or wer-fain (wer or were is an archaic English word for a specifically male human, whereas "man" was a gender-neutral word for a human; see https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/wer#English )
* heterosexual = other-fain, else-fain, or else-drawn

Some words about gender:
* gender = kind
* assigned gender = allotted kind
* gender dysphoria = kind-woe
* #transgender = cross-kind
* transition = crossing
* cisgender = same-side-kind or stay-kind
Some words about nonbinary gender:

* binary genders = twain kinds
* #nonbinary = untwain
* genderfluid = kind-flow
* genderqueer = kind-queer
agender or genderless = kindless
* bigender = twi-kind
* neutral gender = fair-kind
* neutrois = fair-three
Building words from Germanic English roots is a fun linguistic experiment that is helpful when you find yourself overwhelmed with what we think of as "long words," which are of Greek or Latin origin. Wikipedia gives several examples of writings that attempted to do that:
The #Anglish wiki has a lot of resources for if you want to try it too:
