I used to take pics of the cage layout. Here’s one from when they were young and tiny. Can you spot Allard?
It’s a baby Ed!
A very young Nayda. So tiny!
Ed, on the right, and Nayda. That’s a rock on the shelf below them, in case you were wondering. It was supposed to help dull their nails, but it never really worked.
I’m going to rewrite the first issue / story of the White Knight tonight, since I got comments back from the sensitivity reader. Then I just need to set up a specific site for it (besides the tumblr), finish the new logo, and start posting! While working 40 hours a week!
Here’s Nayda from when they were very young.
Allard, on the faucet, and Ed.
Here’s Ed with various hidey toys.
Here’s Nayda, in my lap. I can’t tell what zie’s eating, probably one of their kibbles. In the apartment, which is where I think this was taken, I could move their cage close enough that they could come and go from the cage to my bed.
Here’s another pic from when I had an apartment. There was a Chinese place that would deliver. I believe this is Nayda – it’s hard to tell zie and Ed apart from just the head.
Here’s Ed playing in a tube. This is from several years ago when I had my own apartment.
This is part of a longer piece (6 times Delia learned about gender, and one time she didn’t), but the other bits mostly kinda suck right now, so I gotta rewrite them. This does reference those a bit, but uhhh, you’re gonna have to guess from context, I guess.
CN: mention of snakes in a metaphor, gender feels, mild misgendering-ish. Yes, this is a happy piece. Reminder, Delia is Zanchese-Anitian, which is pretty much equivalent to Chinese-American, and speaks Ie, which is a conlang of mine (that I need to work on more…). Please let me know if I screwed up. Nathan is her husband.
There’s some more notes at the bottom.
*sigh* I’ve had this written for a few years now. And had the artwork nearly done. So, now y’all get it! I should really write more with Daniel and Rowan. They’re delightful.
