All the ratties on my shoulder. From last Christmas (we did a Christmas letter with a picture of all of us with all the pets). Ed is on top, Allard is the most forward, and Nayda is by my neck.
What is your character’s preferred means of travel? Andre prefers to drive himself. He gets panic attacks on public transit, in taxis, and in cars with bad or unpredictable drivers (like Wild Rush) Charles prefers to ride shotgun or go by train / subway. Daisy loves trains and finds the noise and motion very relaxing. … Continue reading “”
Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.) Wild Rush – no, not really at all. He doesn’t have the patience for it. There a few cocktails he likes to make. He can also do slower cooker stuff. Daisy manages. She’s good at casseroles and … Continue reading “”

Woo! I’m up to 137 ‘words’ (lexemes) in my lexicon and 55 entries that don’t count (affixes and roots). Here’s a couple of words: nyki – leaf, feather, or scale. paucal / plural: nykyyki / nykiki pronounced: mity / mityy’ki / mityki IPA: ɱɪ.ˈdi / ɱɪ.ˈdiːʔ.gʏ / ɱɪ.ˈdi.kʏ And a word derived from it: natryyki – leafy, feathery, scaley from ‘nyki’ and ‘-atry-‘ […]
How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold? (Hey, I’ve got a writing snippet that talks about this a bit!) Wild Rush doesn’t really notice it. If it’s super hot or cold he might change what he’s wearing a bit, but not much. Daisy feels them and either snuggles … Continue reading “”
I really need to finish these off. Let’s see what I can do… How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email? Delia – pretty darn good, since she works at a technology company. Not as good as Mick (Future-Tech’s resident genius) or her son, but she gets […]
I swear I’m going to start actually drawing the comic, but I keep getting distracted by my conlang. I know I have at least a couple multiples who read my tumblr, so if you want to comment / critique / offer suggestions, I’d appreciate it. I’ve been a bit annoyed because I have two multiple-ish […]
I’ve been working on my conlang a lot. I have a newer version of the tiddlywiki to upload, but since everything is tagged ‘wip’ I’m holding off. I also started a tiddlywiki lexicon instead of doing it in Excel, because it’s more useful for translations and notes. I’ll upload that as well at some point. … Continue reading “”
I had to have Nayda put down on Thursday. Zie was the sweetest, friendliest rat you could ask for. Zie was about 2 years, 4 months old. Of the three I had (Ed, Nayda, and Allard), only Ed is left. I’m going to continue to post pictures of all three, because they’re adorable and I’ve […]
I’m switching the domain to silvers.space with silversspace.com and silversspace.net as redirects for those weirded out by the new domain extensions. The old domain will work for an undetermined time (until it expires). Please update your bookmarks accordingly.
(weird spelling in the title to is how I write stuff when I don’t have the full character-set) As requested from my girlfriend. I actually thought I had this word and didn’t, so here you go. Our word of the day is ŋafnɯŋyɒ Meaning: girl. Literally ‘female child’. Can refer to people or animals (people only read more
I’m working on Ŋyjichɯn again. I’d like to get it up to 500 words and get the tiddlywiki cleaned up enough that I could submit it to the Conlangery Podcast to be considered for the featured conlang. Since I’m currently obsessing about it, I’ve decided to do a Ŋyjichɯn word of the day for at least a while. Our […]
I’ve updated the settings of the plug-in to make it clearer that not all the post is being crossposted and why. So text past the first paragraph or so (not sure where the cut off is) and pictures won’t show up on Dreamwidth or Livejournal. Please just click on through. You can comment wherever you read more
(Image description: Nathan Burton, a tall heavy white man with red-brown hair tied back in a loose pony-tail, and Delia Troy Burton, a shorter muscular Asian woman, sitting on the floor snuggling in their pajamas, with Nathan’s arms around Delia).
Here’s Nathan Burton, Delia Troy’s (aka the White Knight) husband. This replaces the previous design, although he doesn’t usually run around shirtless. The pic came out a little darker than I wanted, but I don’t really feel like putting in more hours adjusting it, doing test renders, and then waiting an hour+ for the final read more
