Oh jesus the fanbinding drama has made WIRED. Please, don't you have anything better to write about.

Fandom friends! What would you call a take about a series or character that is strongly supported by evidence in the text, but not directly stated by the text? Does the amount of evidence make a difference?

Discussion with @xieliansbignaturals@blorbo.social reminded me that I never actually posted any of the modern Ghost Kings photos we took, mostly because uhhh they did not turn out very good (like this is the only mostly not-blurry pair one). Eventually we'll wear the outfits again and get better photos, I spent way to long tracking down a dark red t-shirt to cut up to not.

So, I am seriously considering running a little event for Gu Yun's birthday next month, of the 'one prompt a day for [x] days' variety where x depends on how many interesting prompts I can think up.

I think having it start on or end on his birthday makes the most sense, but I'm not sure which. Ending on it was my instinctive first pick, buuuuut then it overlaps with Lunar New Year (as his birthday is the day after Shangyuan).

Thoughts, anyone? I am not on fedi software that can make polls otherwise I would've done that, haha.

Figure I may as well ask this on the nerdiest of my social media sites - does anyone know of good intros/overviews of simple-to-intermediate mechanisms used in mechanical designs? Stuff in between 'simple single pulley' and 'planetary gear system', basically, with the additional context that I'd mostly like to get better at designing and building simple mechanics for like, cosplay and 3d printing projects, etc.
