the πŸ’œ πŸ’™ thing, plurality 

Okay since we're on a new account we're gonna explain this here so we can pin it.

On November 1, 2019, Adelia woke up instead of me (Alana) and I was essentially gone for over a year while Adelia and the others did their best to keep things together. Adelia decided that she would continue to use purple as her preferred colour for heart emojis like I had been doing.

In the meantime, Dani split off from Mena and eventually settled on using blue as her heart emoji colour. She also eventually became as frequent a fronter as Adelia and even became de facto host when Adelia became too broken to front anymore.

A little over a year after I disappeared, we finally fixed some issues, and then Adelia and Dani started feeling like they were blending most of the time, so they started using πŸ’œ πŸ’™ as their heart emoji choice. Then Lane, Mena, and Kade started swirling in too, and with that my sense of self came back, and I realised that I'm not a single headmate and I never was. I'm the confluence of all of us, the Delaneys, with Adelia and Dani as the "hearts", and that's why I/we use πŸ’œ πŸ’™ to represent myself/ourself now.

our plurality and first-person pronouns 

We, as Alana, when we're feeling more cohesive, will use "I". Otherwise we'll use "we". Sometimes individuals will talk and use "I" and they may or may not sign their posts.

Basically what we're saying here is: Here there be pronoun fuckery. You've been warned.

call for stories/anecdotes/screenshots of positive coming out experiences, covid/parents mentions 

Someone named Amy had a really sweet idea and posted this on a Facebook group we're in and said to steal her idea and copy it onto other platforms. We're not in a lot of corners so we may just give the stories back to her to distribute. Anyways:

"So... lately I've noticed that young people need a lot of uplifting these days. Tons of young adults are being incidentally outed to their parents because of covid forcing proximity. Sooo..I thought I'd do a little compiling of uplifting stuff."

"If you have a story/anecdote/screen cap of texts coming out to someone where it went ok or better, slide those in this [thread] or message them to me. I will double check they're anoymized and post them in the corners of the internet where young queers complain about their parents. Who want to spread the feels?"

(Seeing as fedi is one of those corners where young queers complain about their parents, we wonder how many will come back here but y'know we just thought this was cool nonetheless πŸ’œπŸ’™)

selfies, eye contact, topless, underwear 

These are from when we took the current profile pic. Figured we should put some actual lewd content on our lewd account finally lol

masto account question, remote data retention 

welp, in the meantime until we have a more definitive answer I have Forget currently picking posts off once every minute. Hopefully that's slow enough to not get rate-limited.

masto account question, remote data retention 

we're aware that there's *always* the risk that our posts and associated data are going to be cached somewhere indefinitely. However, if we wish to ensure the best possible data deletion when we delete an account, would it be better to delete the posts one by one first or just nuke the account?

as usual, boosts, compliments, flirts, complaints, tangential stories, and nonsensical nicknames are all welcome 😁

request for information about orchiectomies and vaginoplasties from people who have had those procedure(s) 

One of my partners experiences severe dysphoria from her genitals. Specifically her testes, which often hurt physically.

Shes weighing orchiectomy/vaginoplasty and is feeling overwhelmed. Would any of you who have had either procedure be willing to answer a few questions or give your general opinions after having said procedure?

Thank you so much in advance!

transphobia mention 

You ever think about some random acquaintance you only interacted with once or twice a long time ago in the egg times and think, "I wonder if they're a transphobe :blobthinking:"?
