Fantastical Friday: A Completely Normal School Report

Our sources say there is nothing in the rulebooks which prohibits us from holding flaming chainsaws to the judges’ necks. We also thanked them and apologised later on for any PTSD they might have from this minor incident, but they only looked at us with shell-shocked eyes.

Twisty Tongue Twisters

The World of Conlangs: Musical Languages and Constancy

Esperanto was supposed to be a universal second language, uniting people all over the world with it’s simple structure and constant grammar rules.

Self Love: You are a Rainbow

You, yes you, you are a rainbow, and so am I. You won’t always shine, you won’t always be visible to everyone, but even through the rain you of difficulties you can manage to shine through. It won’t happen every time, but trust me, sometimes it will. Not everyone will be able to see you, but you impact those who will.
