Pinned toot

i think i'm going to do an experiment during the remaining month of september:

- no boosting
- only public toots allowed are admin notices and local-only
- replies > favorites, unless bookmark

so enjoy my followers-only toots and DMs, see you on the flipside :heart_cyber:

Pinned toot

hello, everyone! i'm izzy, and i run the instance gentle.town

i am very much into poetry and visual arts, all mythologies sacred and profane and linguistics.

i'm a former philosophy undergraduate and prospective computer technician.

once i saw a fresco at santa croce in florence and i cried. i feel like that says something about me.

i'm very excited to be here; please be kind!

quick question, though: custom emojis are showing as their descriptors after migrating servers and i'm not sure how to refresh that. some avatars and headers are also not loading, mostly on local accounts. help?!

:boost_ok:

is yunohost.org down for anyone else? please test and reply if you can

i keep wondering if i could migrate G.T to my raspi with . anyone know if i actually can or is it only for vanilla mastodon?

dear fedi,

would you like a tarot reading? it's more like guiding you through your introspection with the help of tarot, but, like, i would be very happy to do it

it'd be completely free ofc :spellbook:

the pixel art was commissioned last summer and it's by sophialoreart.wixsite.com/; the full body art is by a friend, the portrait i made myself

and this is my character; she's a druid (arctic circle) dwarf who was cast out after being born during a thunderstorm, a bad omen. she's grown resentful of dwarven customs and hopes to find a more accepting chosen family, but she can't quite shed her background and she's a bit surly and wary of outsiders. she's starting to grow fond of her party, though.

12 hours later, I have just landed in my airport. It's over 35 degrees hotter than it was in the Southern hemisphere and I haven't slept a wink

send help 😭

a nice place to spend my last few hours in this country (there's a public photography exhibition in this park, all LGBT subjects)

blood, physical health 

homophobic slur (+, reclaiming) 

today I'll be in airports all day and I really hope there's sockets so I can at least work on instance themes or something or even read a book on my phone because rn i'm just dreading it 😫
