cw: as usual, due to my hobby, this post might have some doll photos, so if you have a doll phobia be advised! Also, contains mentions of mental health issues, and a brief mention of CGL.
What I’ve Been Up To
Have…Have I been up to anything? I didn’t post much at all this summer, I must have done something since April. Oh! Damien and I went on a lovely little trip for our 10th anniversary in June, where we just drove to the seaside and hung around a cheapish hotel room, bought fancy chocolate, walked through a wetlands, and played on the beach. It was really lovely.
Otherwise…I’m going to be honest, y’all. I haven’t been doing great. I haven’t been blogging much because sex is about as interesting to me at the moment as pocket lint, and I’ve had some health and mental health nonsense I’m dealing with. But, hey, we get through the rough patches eventually.
I have been writing non-blog stuff here and there, and I’m planning to do NaNoWriMo this year, if I can pick what I want to write! I did a modified NaNo last year, writing a bunch of short-form erotica, some of which made it onto the blog, but I’m hoping to do an actual novel this time around. If you’re doing NaNo, here’s my profile, feel free to add me as a writing buddy!
“Going Public” by Hudson Lin This was a fun gay romance, and had a demisexual main character (!!!). I got it through the Cloud Library app via my library, and I’m going to have to read more from this author.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas I enjoyed this one very much! It’s a supernatural YA novel with a trans Latino main character.
The US version of Ghosts is back on, so of course we’ve started watching that.
Ghost Files on the Watcher YouTube channel. (Lots of ghosts, I guess—seasonally appropriate, if nothing else!)
Oh, also managed to watch Encanto about 10 times in the last several months, so y’know, a few months after everyone else finished being obsessed with it.
Also watched A League of Their Own. The movie is one of my favorites, and the TV series is all that I enjoyed + extremely, extremely queer.
Current Favorite Kinks
Current Favorite Sex Toys
Masturbation is largely disinteresting to me of late, so I’ve been going with the ol’ reliable Silver Bullet on the occasions when I remember I really ought to. If anything ever happens to it, I’ll cry. (And then, y’know, probably get a new one. But crying first!)
This Month in Queer Fashion
Growing my hair out again for autumn; I get chronic ear aches so I have to wear hats in cold weather, usually beanies, and they look a little nicer if my hair’s a bit shaggy. Or, well, I think they do. (It’ll be a bit before I get to “shaggy” though.) I’m planning to bleach it as well, just haven’t had time, so for the moment it’s back to my natural dark blond with a little bit of purple remaining on the ends. It looks sort of intentional?
Clothingwise, I’m really into these gray Polo pants I have, and now that it’s not packer-meltingly hot out all the time I’m wearing them more. I also have these great wool-blend cropped pants that I’m pleased to haul out of the drawer again; they look so fucking cool, although they lack pockets. We might put pockets in later, though.
Upcoming Content, Hopefully
Well, November of course always brings the annual scramble to get all the Black Friday deals listed, so you can look forward to that. I’ve also been working on a super basic guide to sex toys, including basics about vibrators and anatomy—the guide I needed at some point, as someone raised in a sex-negative, very Christian environment. I’ll post that whenever I’m reasonably satisfied with it!
What I’ve Been Crafting
I’ve still just been sewing like crazy for dolls, and I think I’ve been improving a lot! I’m pleased with this little sock sweater I made for Ambrose out of some Halloween socks I got from JoAnn Fabrics, and this blouse-and-jumper set I made for Max.
I also helped Damien make this cool wreath for autumn. We have two black cats, so we’re leaning into the black cat décor.

Sometimes, Jinx and Lucky try to kill each other. Other times… Look at them! LOOK AT THEM.
