Dreamt last night I was in a crowded but joyous place. There was a fountain, an arcade, live music, and a bookstore that served the few college classes that were held there (in auditoriums off to the side of the main plaza, far enough away that noise wasn’t a problem). It was a bit of a maze to get around, though, and shortcutting through the restrooms or jumping down from balconies were ways I ended up getting around.
"Whalefish"? Eesh. I meant #Whalebird. And this time I've properly hashmarked it.
I live! I have some ideas now that are going to give this account some purpose. This is called XenoChat, after all. I have a new logo for the whole Xeno project (which I'll be installing later on), and a whole fictional universe (okay, a whole fictional city; universes are big) waiting behind the doors here.
I ought to start using this account more. It's been sitting here untouched while Elseways is kind of on hold as a project - the intent was to build that up to something bigger, but it's been hard getting started on actual content. This is a perpetual problem of mine. I love building the engines, but I never have any fuel left over to run them.
The thing is, I don't particularly lean heterosexual or homosexual. I'm not interested in bare breasts, turned off by genitalia of both kinds, and frankly humans in general I find kind of off-putting. But I don't feel right calling myself asexual either, because there are things I am very into. But there is no convenient flag for what I am. There should be, even as a kind of "miscellaneous" category.
The multiple-limbs thing goes back a long way. I remember, as a kid, obsessing over:
• Kary (aka Marilith) from Final Fantasy, and generally all D&D mariliths (plus Secret of Mana's Hexas)
• Goro and Kintaro from MK
• The two-headed snake enemies from FF2/4, to the point where I was trying to figure out how to make a costume
All of these were around when I was 11-14 or so. Other boys obsessed over pictures of naked women. I had … that.
