jewelfox: A portrait of a foxgryphon with a beak, black fur, magenta hair, fox ears, and a neckband with a large jewel on it. (Default)

Today we and [tumblr.com profile] alias-pseudonym met up with a very old friend of mine at a board game café! (We'll call her 'K' for now.) We met years ago on a Sonic fanfiction site, back when I was a conservative Mormon. Both of us have grown a lot since then, though, and it's always great to see people we knew pre-transition accept our new (and cuter) self. And to meet awesome people in this city that we just moved to.

Also, Above and Below is a really neat game that combines the best parts of cave crawling with village building, worker placement, and excellent art. By the end of it I had Frog and Robo from Chrono Trigger in my party (or at least I decided the frog and robot villagers were them), while K had a guy who looked like Solid Snake. Alias still won, though; it caught on to the actual strategy a lot quicker than we did.

We're just now going through Dreamwidth comments from January, and feeling bad about how much we've prolonged it.

We want everyone to know that we read every comment, and they mean a lot to us. We're just noobs at managing spoons.

We're trying to work through our inbox and have better systems in place for organizing things. Please continue to let us know how you feel about things that we right, and know that we appreciate your support. All of yours. >_>;
