content warnings are good and important, but one of my problems with them is... alert saturation, I guess? most things that are cw'd are not things i object to seeing, so my reflective reaction is to open them, even in situations when a moment of thought would have told me 'no, that is in fact one of the ones you don't want to see'.
d'you ever just read a fic and notice super minor characters who are suspiciously detailed in both personality and design and you know the author is referencing something but it could be anything from a specific fandom meme to characters from a different work to their friends and so you have no idea what
dd/mm: good, correct, nice.
mm/dd: *sighs* i guess i got used to it. dang americans.
yyyy/mm/dd: good, unambiguous, clear, a bit over-detailed at times but always a reasonable choice. by its very existence makes mm/dd slightly less offensive.
yyyy/dd/mm: a crime against nature and all that is righteous. burn it.
money, request for help getting a mobility aid, boosts very welcome
we're looking at getting this wheelchair because we really (really really) need one. our leg has gotten worse over the past year or so and we really need a way to get around without being on our feet.
it's $494 with shipping, and then also requires replacement caster wheels and a cushion. additionally, there's the chance that in the process of fundraising, it ends up being bought, leaving us to hunt again for different listings.
so, we don't think that $700 is an unreasonable ask.
if you can help out, you can give us money on our paypal. please DM us for our personal paypal if we follow you, as they take less fees.
we have a patreon too, but unless we end up waiting til the end of the month to even have a chair, this won't help. it wouldn't go unappreciated, but it seems good to make note of!
