[Hatoful Boyfriend] Broken Birds 1/2

Nanaki Kazuaki and Sakazaki Yuuya are in the beginnings of a strange and unconventional relationship; they’re two birds who will always care about someone else more than each other. Could two people possibly be better off in a situation like this? 

Broken Birds is about healing in an unconventional relationship. The comic takes place in the world of Hatoful Boyfriend, right after the sequel, Holiday Star.

Now that this doujinshi is a few years old, I decided to put it up online for free. You can download the PDF on itch.io, or read it on AO3, or Pixiv.

Really the cheapest and easiest way to get image hosting from my domain is through here. I’m sorry for people who come here for narrative criticism.

Death Stranding, and a little Healing

Content Warning: This post contains spoilers for the end of Death Stranding, and conversations about my personal experiences with abuse, neglect, and daddy issues. This is some very personal crap that does little by way of analysis or critique of the story.

Save the World — Grow Fruit Trees from what you eat!

A 10-page zine collecting information on how to grow trees from fruit seeds. That way you, too, can help to save the world! While eating something delicious! I’ve been working on this zine a little while as a collection of information I’ve uncovered while foraging. After collecting sumac seeds and apple seeds, I thought I could share what I learned!

If you’d like to enjoy this post as a downloadable PDF instead, please access it here. Thank you!

6 Tips to Using a Planner for your Mental Health

A spread of two pages of a planner depicting days in November 2018. There are dates marked for classes, a therapy appointment, etc.

Hello, I’m Dawn and I’ve been battling my own mental health as far back as I can remember. I struggle to this day with depression and anxiety.

I’ve kept a journal off and on for much of my life. I decided in 2018 to keep one to track my days, so I could stop beating myself up about how much I didn’t do. A few months in, I used it for exactly that, and it worked, pulling me out of a downward spiral of self-hate. In my depressed haze I was discrediting how hard I was working, and looking back in time, I was grateful for what I did manage to do.

Depending on your particular hangups, my routine might not work for you, but I think it could help others. I recommend that you use a daily log, be it a spreadsheet, phone calendar, or physical day planner. Make sure it has all 365 days a year. Other than that, you can use whatever you please. I use a Hobonichi Techo because it had a cool Earthbound jacket, and getting something expensive held me hostage to make use of it.

[DRAKENGARD 3] Cruel Miracle COMIC

Posting this here because I want a reliable source to upload the art.

Created for the Snow in Summer exchange @drakenierswap on twitter, for kadamidee who asked for angst about Accord knowing about Zero’s bad end. This was a fic that turned into a comic at the LAST POSSIBLE MINUTE because I thought it would work better. I think it does, but because of the quick heel-turn, it’s very unpolished. Oh well, I still like it anyway. :) I hope you did, too!

Zero, from Drakengard, walks with sword in hand, shadow of a dragon flying above her. The narration reads: "Zero, in her habitat as a creature in her own right, could be an interesting object of study. It is in my interest as a recorder to hope that my observations provide perspective."

Chapter 8: The Hostage, and the TWS soundtrack!

Hi everybody!

Sorry for the delay on updating! It’s been a busy time preparing for the Channel A kickstarter!! So today I’m posting the missing page and the one I should have posted yesterday. I hope you enjoy where this subplot is going!

In addition, my darling Clark Powell has released the Official Those Without Shadows soundtrack! Well, the first part, anyway. There are a few tracks here that haven’t appeared in the story in any way yet! I hope you look forward to some of these. At least one will be appearing in a game in Chapter 9. Please look forward to it, and support Clark!

Now that we’re in the middle of con season, I also wanted to note the cons I’ll be appearing at now that I’ve got that together. You’ll be able to find me at:

DCAF: Dartmouth Comic Arts Festival: August 19th
Capercon: September 21-23rd
Hal-Con: October 26-28th

I hope you come visit me if you’re around!

BACKPOST: Chapter 7: The Conflict COMPLETE!

Hello my darling readers!

Thanks for reading The Conflict! This is the final page in Chapter 7. If it seems like a cliffhanger, that’s because we’re in a three-chapter arc that I’ve been referring to as the “Ganymede Arc”. Unfortunately, we couldn’t solve it all in the course of a single chapter. I promise, it’ll be good!

Now that we’re in the middle of con season, I also wanted to note the cons I’ll be appearing at now that I’ve got that together. You’ll be able to find me at:

BACKPOST! Chapter 6: The City complete!

Originally posted 31/05/2018.

Hello!

Sometime before the previous update of The City game segment, my patreon pledges broke $50 per month. A long time ago I promised that if that happened, I would post the rest of the chapter at once. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice until afterward, but getting the Atini game online was pretty stressful. It was probably for the best that I didn’t worry about having these ready then, too.

But, here they are now!

Stay tuned next week for the debut of Chapter 7: The Conflict.
