Hi there, fireflies! I’m writing this on Thursday, which has been a rough day in Brittney Griner news. I hope that as you read this, you have love and care around you, and that you have a group chat where you can yell into the void exactly as much as you need to. I love you! So does Milo.

See a comment that needs to be here? Tag me [at] queergirl.
Thank you Darcy! And the comment award titles are especially great this week.
I’d like to thank the bruise on my coccyx for this award.
On a positive note, of all the butt-related accidents in the world that this award title could’ve been referring to, mine was a pretty tame one.
Thank you biensurmacherie! I’ve been wanting to ditch goodreads for ages now, but I’ve been dreading copying my want to read list, so this is very helpful!
It’s nice to know that there are other people out there who think just like me. It is evident that you put a great amount of thought into your website, and the content is stellar. slope unblocked
