hi, i hope you don’t mind me having some questions regarding fandom. ink. do you have any intention of a) increasing the character limit on toots or b) having a public list of servers that have been blocked or silenced by fandom. ink? thank you and have a nice day!

a) This is, sadly, not something I can control with the way I currently have Mastodon deployed. I’m also generally of the opinion Masto itself is… not for extremely long posts? If you’re looking for something longform, there are other platforms out there that implement ActivityPub (i.e. people can follow and interact with them from Masto, and vice versa), like Plume and Write Freely, or even the WordPress plugin I use at my own blog (which you can see if you follow @alis@alis.me from Masto or similar).

b) It’s basically dzuk’s list, with a few extra silences to keep IRL porn instances off Federated (you can still follow them, just… quietly).

Hey Alis! I just found your book Liesmith the other day and as of about an hour ago I have devoured both of your books. I absolutely loved the hel out of them and wanted to let you know you’ve inspired me to start writing. THANK YOU

Aw, thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed it!

And even better, it’s an amazing and humbling thing to be able to inspire art in other people. I wish you all the blessings from the creativity muses going forward! ❤

Go ask Alis.

Anonymous asked:

I’m curious, were you a fan fiction author before you published an original novel?

There’s no “before” about it: like a lot of (particularly female) authors nowadays I’ve always written both fan- and original fiction.

I don’t publicly link my fan author name with my pro author name, again for the same reason most pro authors don’t (i.e. some people in fandom can be really assholish about it). But, yeah. I write fic.

littlelostsock asked:

Your blog did the “ask/fan mail” limbo to me too! After I scrolled past the Tom Baker post, the pop up from the bottom keeps popping up even when you cancel it. I’m on Tumblr mobile if that helps?

Yeah, I’ve seen people on my Dash complaining about it happening on other Tumblrs, too, so I think it’s maybe just the mobile app being buggy?

Okay, I get that the Tumblr app sucks, but how much data overage does one have to accrue to get a SIX THOUSAND DOLLAR PHONE BILL holy HELL ALIS did you get a bill or a MEDAL

I got a bunch of really uncomfortable stares at family dinners from my in-laws is what I got, given the phone is paid from on their business plan…

I love all the nods to Twin Peaks in Gravity Falls. 😀 That post going around that shows a bunch of the visual links is really cool.

Ooh! I have not seen that one. I’ll have to go looking for it!

I just got around to finishing Stormbringer and I just wanted to drop a line and remind you that you’re awesome. Like really amazingly awesome. *heart eyes*

I just wanted to say, I stumbled across Liesmith a few weeks ago and I’m utterly hooked. I actually restricted myself to only reading during my commute so that I could have something before and after work to look forward to. I’m now halfway through Stormbringer and continue to be in love with these books, the characters, the stories, and how effortlessly so many elements blend together. I’ve been telling everyone I can to go read as well.

Aw, thank you so much! I’m really glad you’ve been enjoying them.
