I want Martha Wells and Becky Chambers to team up and write scifi or maybe swap and write stories in each other’s settings (murderbot and wayfarers).

Especially given that this character’s concept originally started as “my terrible overblown impersonation of Keanu Reeves, but not at all smart and also a martial artist”.

My current roleplaying character is shaping up to be among the most messed up and also fun characters to play at the table in… 12 years or so of regular play. I think he might be on a villain arc where he crosses lines he can’t un-cross in the name of “good”. But his friends may also find a way to pull him back and there might be a redemption arc.

I want to be prompted to send someone a "why" when I click "follow" and their account isn't just open. Sometimes I don't notice that it changed to "rescind request" or whatever the words are and so don't think to message them to say Hi or whatever. Just they said something cool to a friend of mine in a thread or something, IDK. Then I notice weeks later and their avatar looks familiar, but that's it.

The remote music class for Kindergarten is the teacher singing sea shanties… specifically The Wellerman. Delightful.

if you search the custom emoji list for “pepe” you can find a bunch of cool instances to block

Just thinking about the mushroom that only grows in central Texas and southern Japan, and has been growing in these two separate locations for 19 million years (the Devil's Cigar)

US schools do not lack for actual cops eager to harass students of color, meanwhile the "teachers are cops" posts center the experiences of white suburban kids who are taught in high-pressure environments to prep them for college.
