WE HAVE SOMETHING EXCITING TO ANNOUNCE!

I mean, you all knew it was coming, but still…

ROUND THREE SIGNUPS WILL BE OPEN FROM NOVEMBER 25TH THROUGH DECEMBER 25TH!!!

We’re super excited!  We’ve been getting all our mod-side stuff ready to go, adding new prompts to the list, designing new cards and badges, prepping spreadsheets, updating FAQ’s.  And now to the part we’ve all been waiting for!

We will reblog a link to the signups on the 25th, and several other times throughout the open signups period, on all our TSB platforms (here on Tumblr, Pillowfort, Dreamwidth, and Discord).  Feel free to spread it around and share the love!

After signups close, cards will start going out between January 1st and 5th, and our very first kickoff Discord party will be held on January 11th to get us going.  We’ll have sprints, socialize, likely play a game or two, and you know those party favors from the last round?  That’s gonna be a thing this time around too!

Round Three will end on June 30th, with all master posts and badge claims due no later than July 5th.  (Badge claims are a new thing we’re doing, to make it a bit easier on the mods.)  

(Side note: Speaking of badge claims, YES we are still doing our TSB Flash Bingo, with new cards coming out in December!  Badges should start going out this weekend, real life permitting.)

Questions?  The FAQ here on Tumblr is a great place to start.  More questions after that?  Feel free to contact the mods on any of the platforms listed up there. 

We’re very much looking forward to this next round, seeing old faces and collecting new ones (that sounded creepier than I meant it to…)  

All the love from the mods!

Good morning! I’m salty.

I think we, as a general community, need to start taking this little moment more seriously.

This, right here? This is asking for consent. It’s a legal necessity, yes, but it is also you, the reader, actively consenting to see adult content; and in doing so, saying that you are of an age to see it, and that you’re emotionally capable of handling it.

You find the content you find behind this warning disgusting, horrifying, upsetting, triggering? You consented. You said you could handle it, and you were able to back out at any time. You take responsibility for yourself when you click through this, and so long as the creator used warnings and tags correctly, you bear full responsibility for its impact on you.

“Children are going to lie about their age” is probably true, but that’s the problem of them and the people who are responsible for them, not the people that they lie to.

If you’re not prepared to see adult content, created by and for adults, don’t fucking click through this. And if you do, for all that’s holy, don’t blame anyone else for it.

This needs to be reblogged today.

Consenting to see adult content doesn’t mean you should have to see a bunch of shit romanticizing incest and pedophilia you walnut

Except this is the last line of consent before the actual work. So if you’re at this button you have already done the following:

1) chosen to go onto AO3 in the first place

2) chosen the fandom you wish to read about

3) had the chance to filter for the things you do want to see like a specific pairing or a specific AU

4) had the chance to specifically filter out any tags you don’t want to see like, oh I don’t know, incest and non-con and dub-con and paedophilia

5) had the chance to set the rating level if you wish to remove any explicit content at all

6) have read the summary of the story, which aren’t always great but are the only indicator of what the story will be like writing wise so something about it was good enough for you to click on it.

7) have read the tags of the story which will tell you what is actually in the story. If you have used filters to remove stories with things you don’t want then there shouldn’t be anything in here that’s a shock to you but maybe there is. That’s why the tags are there for you to check for yourself.

8) Then you have to actually click on the story. You cannot see anything other than the summary or the tags without personally deciding that you are going to open and read this story.

9) Only here, at step number nine, do you get to the adult content warning pictured above. You have been through eight different steps, the last six of which have also been opportunities for you to see that this has adult content. And AO3 has *STILL* stopped you to ask one last time “are you sure you want to read this because it has things that only adults should see in it”.

If after this point you are reading incest and paedophilia then it’s probably because you specifically went looking for it.

You walnut.

This is the most beautiful thing that I have seen about ao3

Always important!!!!!!

Cannot stress ‘you walnut’ enough

Well, I made a birthday card today. It’s not t…

Well, I made a birthday card today. It’s not that good, the only thing that really saves it and makes it beautiful is the animalock’s made by @chained-to-the-mirror. I’m not showing the finished card as per the request of her but I will show it to my friend fully finished. 

I do think I need to find some new inspiration, I can’t keep making art by ‘stealing’ it from my friend. I do love her animals, especially the dog ones because they are so cute and adorable. 

And ‘art’ is actually too big a word for the cards I make. They are very simple and basic. I don’t have a lot of fancy (aka expensive) material but I do try to make things, they just never look ‘professional’. That’s why I stopped buying the card making magazines, you need so many supplies for just one card! And the brands they use are expensive and a hobby can cost a bit but it all has to be reasonable I think. 

Anyway, I guess I’m in a bit of a funk with my cardmaking/crafting. I’m not even sure if I should post photos of them here. There isn’t really an audience for them. I will use this card to give to my niece for her birthday, I think she will like it.
