oh yeah, in case you didn't know, i'm not a girl or a woman, i am stardust and ethereal moonlight occupying a confusing human body that i don't particularly agree with.

Anakin Skywalker may be unhinged but at least he never imprinted on a baby. :blob_coffee:

Look, I know they get a lot of shit, but Star Wars 1-3 were my favorite. The arc of Anakin was just *chef's kiss* to me.

cat: oo 👀👀 what do you think is on that crowded bookshelf? 👀👀

me: i wouldn't, if i were you

cat: *jumps on bookshelf*

cat: *can't figure out how to get down*

cat: *cries for help*

me: you didn't learn from last week, huh?

Today marks the first day of my writing report, The Hell Dispatch! Every Saturday, I share updates on writing progress, craft thoughts that have come up, and a little poem ✨ as a treat✨ .

I'm 36% of the way and wrote a Petrarchan sonnet to celebrate:

cat: i'm soooooo LONELYYYYYY

me: hi


me: hello

cat: whYYYY doesn't anyone LOVEEEEE MEEEEE

me: i'm right here

cat: woeeee is me

me: duDE

cat: :grr:
