The present personal narrative 

So, I've had a hell of a past couple weeks and feel the need to spill a couple things in my own personal style.

I am not the me I used to be, but not even the gods know why I've reeked of coyote so long - not most of them anyway.

I participate in magic while knowing it has no scientific basis, yes I believe it can change my life, and no I do not dismiss the science. There's a few threads involved, but note how the implied correlation between placebo and lack of any effect from any source is as foolish as it is dismissive.

More than one thing can be true at a time, and if you don't believe I can give you new limbs, new realities, change your image and form for even a fleeting moment... then damn do I have some surprises to show you.

I accept friends without causality and stories without sense, because hey it makes sense to someone in some language.

What I don't accept is riddles caged in sadism and abuse, even and especially if they're spoken as a grave warning for me to not do something I'd already decided against the year prior, from someone pretending to be one of my headmates (yes this actually happened.)

But if a predator tries to name and claim me, it's a simple catch to flip the tables and claim it for my own. Don't underestimate a fox in a labcoat - we got a strong pull.

So who IS Kyresti? (Rev. Sep 2019, part 1/2) 

So, a little background about me:

There's a few things that don't change.
-I'm on the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum.
-I've been a furry since 2000, otherkin since 2002, though the minor details went through a laundry list of changes.
-I'm pansexual and a devout relationship anarchist. In more confining/conventional structures I lean almost entirely aromantic.
-I'm post-traumatic on multiple fronts and coping in strange but effective ways. The species stuff is at least partly connected, and yes I'm open about that. 💚
-I'm demifluid with my resting state trending towards androgyny.
-Collectively we're a median system with expression thereof varying markedly (think Garnet from SU but somewhat less stable as a fusion). As Kyresti I'm the hypervisor, permanent observer, and near-permanent body controller.

So who IS Kyresti? (Rev. Sep 2019, part 2/2) 

And here's the more contemporary quirks-mode aspects.

-As of last year? I am post-GRS, outie to innie but with complicated feelings on the outcome and a frequent desire for 'mixed characteristics' (Yes it IS possible, I think for all but at least for pre-op AMAB types. Message me and I can refer you to surgeons who know that technique.)
-As of about the beginning of this 2019? I'm half gray fox, half coyote, therian partly by choice.
-Devoutly transhumanist and a vocal proponent of morphological freedom. Your body, your wants, your business, and fuck the haters!
-Actively trying to self-teach from a wide swath of science and engineering disciplines to help make that real (It's gonna be a while though, this is kind of a lot.)
-Lover of academia as a haven for progress and research, sworn enemy of academia as an institution of gatekeeping, debt-slavery and corporate cronyism.
-Semi-solitary eclectic pagan, moderate intensity chaos mage, childe (in the Vampire sense) of Coyote. And yes I DO mean that clever yet often careless, no-shits-given oversexed asshole of a trickster god.
-Student of Fox (predominantly Red) for his light-heart and razor wit, and yes there IS a spiritual component to my therian crap why do you ask. XD

Putting a feeler out here. Anyone know if there's abortion clinics out there that need donations like right-the-fuck-now? The West Alabama one got funded, but that's only one single place.

Try to avoid abandoning unfinished sketchbooks in favor of new ones if you can.

Condensing them is SUCH a pain in the ass if you don't have the patience to keep that much bulk around.

So... how long until we have an indisputably sapient AI?

I mean, we already had one of these language models deliberately try to microwave someone out of revenge, and how many degrees of separation are lexicon and state-management from consciousness?

I'm watching pol bullshit so y'all get to suffer with me 

Is it just me or is 45's face just in a suspended animation scowl except for the vocal face flaps?

I swear, half of learning anything in the trades (in the US) is learning every concieveable way you could fuck up, mostly the hard way. After that it's learning every concieveable way to bring something to the state of "Hey it still works...ish"

Thinking about something I'd read fairly recently, don't remember the source. And I can tell you from experience there's exceptions and quirks, but it's been mostly true for me.

Neurotypicals are generally instinctly good at understanding eachother, autistics are generally good at understanding eachother. It's when the two types interact that things get hard to translate.

Also a bit of a follow-up: How much benefits do you get in terms of insurance, vacation days, etc?

Hrm. Got a wonder fairly strongly atm.

Friendly critters in tech, what do y'all do, speaking in a layer more specificity? I know there's a few different directions, wanna gauge a bit what's more common

Internal headcanon, kinda shitposting but idk bored, passing sexual refs 

If anyone ever tried to pull the whole 'against evolution' shit on my debauchery or my oral fixation?

Consider I started out in the fandom part avian. Stayed that way over a decade. And though I still havn't played catch-up with the art, I've gone back to that in different ways.

You ever see what a bird can do with their beak? You ever see how they bond? Take that and apply sapience. There's something to be said for silver tongue helping hold a flock together.

That's not what that term means? Well fuck if I care. :p

Likely to be a persistent intrusive thought, sexual ref, Defunctland 

"--Garfield and I were both screaming by the end of that ride."

2 vaccines and 1 cross-booster later, I have to say.

COVID is fucking annoying.

Real talk, with all the shit news as of late, the smile I didn't know I needed comes from seeing our queer trans poly culture well outside of 'the west'.

I knew furry spread quite a ways, I didn't know the rest did too.
