Foolish Child #104: FALL! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

Dickens celebrates the fall against a purple background. Their friend asks, โ€œaaaaaaaand?โ€ Dickens answers โ€œYou know what that means! Tolerable temperatures!โ€ (The friend complains it is still hot). Dickens continues: โ€œA lower electric bill!โ€ (The friend: The bill is still robbery!) Dickens: Sweaters and Chocolate! Twirling in the Snow!โ€ Dickensโ€™ friend reminds them that it doesnโ€™t snow in Fresno, and they two realize together that what they thought was snow is actually ash from the California Wildfires. Dickens asks, โ€œIs there anything more dystopian than twirling around in falling ash?โ€.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?

I am a queer coparenting mama to Dickens Jr. Doodler by day, 911 dispatcher by night. All my favorite shows look better on Tumblr. I am two years and 450K words deep into constructing a fanfic called Ages and I'm never giving up on it. Bering & Wells.
