In olden times, when people tended to spend their whole lives in one small area, people didn't know yet that birds migrated south for the winter. So they came up with a lot of ideas. Swallows lived under the sea for half the year. Other birds moved to the moon during that time. But my personal favorite was the claim that geese died off every year, and then grew again on trees in the spring.
Gerald of Wales even claimed to have seen this himself, bc the 1100's were good times for shitposting.
fanfic, old internet, things that make me wheeze
I just remembered my favorite thing from the Livejournal Years, you're welcome https://mctabby.livejournal.com/327291.html
I think I would feel a lot lonelier living out in the woods where I don't have friends if I hadn't spent so much of the last decade being too sick to hang out with people very much IRL. I'm still (albeit differently) isolated here, but it's much easier to handle things now that I'm breathing and sleeping a lot more.
We are committed to making Everything.Happens.Horse an inclusive and welcoming pasture for everyone.
We've set these ground rules to make it abundantly clear that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable, so that everyone can feel comfortable grazing in the pasture.
Everyone who visits the pasture is required to abide by this code of conduct, both at the event and on any online channels. We will not tolerate harassment of participants or discriminatory behaviour of any form. Specifically:
- Do not engage in homophobic, racist, transphobic, ableist, sexist, or otherwise prejudiced behaviour.
- Do not harass people. Stalking, unconsented physical contact, or sexual attention is harassment. Dressing or acting in a certain way is not consent.
- Every participant's personal space is their own. If you are asked to leave someone alone, or to leave their corner of the pasture, you must respect this.
- Some attendees may not want their content shared elsewhere. Respect their wishes.
- Aggression and elitism are not welcome — nobody should be afraid to ask questions.
- If you break these rules, we may expel you from the pasture.
If you are being harassed or witness a breach of this code of conduct, p
