It's exciting to hear about the new season/series.
I haven't seen it yet but I want to!
Please do not repost, trace/heavily reference, or use this character for your own rp purposes. Thank you so much!

A small PSA:naldaci
Please tag your NSFW art with the NSFW tag. There were a few cases already where this didn't happen. This includes everything you don't want anybody else in your workspace to see. (Yes Naked people also belong into NSFW)
Untagged NSFW art is actually against the sites ToS and can be reported.
Minors can easily stumble upon untagged NSFW art in the discovery page. And if this keeps happening it might prevent Thell from making an app for the website due to the appstores not accepting the app.
I couldn't pick which of the two I like best so here's both versions.
A lot of artists aren't tagging their NSFW again and this is going to get very annoying very quickly
Hey all - image re-conversion is almost done, with about 4 hours left on the clock. Given 90%+ of the images on the site work now I went ahead and removed the banner. For the techies wondering, the storage burden of images has increased from 60.7GB with just WebP, to 580GB with legacy formats (and still going up thanks to the last 10%).
While that's been going on, there's been plenty of hotfixing going on behind the scenes. You can see more or less what's been fixed on the GitHub, but first, two major things that need going over.
First, audio posts - they've been changed a bit! A couple users started to upload podcasts to the site, which is fantastic. To help support this kind of content, audio posts now behave similarly to video posts - the audio is queued for conversion, and then the post will go live once it's finished. This should help alleviate the timeout errors people have been getting on longer audio files.
Second, there's been a significant uptick in artists neither tagging NSFW on their pieces, nor marking their blogs NSFW if they're an adult artist. I want to take this opportunity to reiterate that tagging NSFW is not optional. The site cannot prevent minors from seeing NSFW if you don't tag it, and, ignoring the legal and ethical ramifications for the site of letting that continue, having NSFW out in the open all but guarantees Waterfall will not be able to get an app released if it's easily accessible to minors. It's the sort of thing that makes sites eventually end up being hostile to NSFW creators, and I really don't want that to happen here. Repeated failure to tag NSFW at a minimum bars you from being searchable and at worst is a bannable offence, so please make sure your adult works are tagged, and your blog flagged if it's your main thing. Tagging it is as simple as adding "nsfw" as a tag.
Thank you, and see you soon for the next slightly more major update.
Roger - Skull Mask
There's an interesting contrast between Roger's pretty face and the horrendous mask he wears.

Caithe! Without any clothes, but who cares? XD
While I’m not the biggest fan ever of Caithe, I love drawing her :)! She’s so pretty!
As some of you might have heard by now, AO3 has gone down a very dark path as of late, alowing users to write and upload sexual content of real, underage people. This is a significantly different matter from allowing it of characters from anime and such, but, from what AO3 staff have said, it's sanctioned. (TW on those links for pedophilia).
So, I'm here to announce today an acceleration of my existing plans, and introduce you to Inkwell!
Inkwell is a writing site, in a similar vein to AO3, with a few core differences.
What kind of stuff can be posted on Inkwell?
Fiction and writing projects of all kinds, including essays, character analyses, chaarcter profiles for your OCs etc. Original works, not tied to any existing fandom, are very welcome!
What stuff can't be posted?
Sexual content involving characters aged under 18, or stuff involving real people. Anything else is a go.
How will it integrate with Waterfall?
The plan as of write now is that you can post writing on Inkwell, and then, if you want to, cross-post it to Waterfall using a fancy button on the site. Then, it'll make a nice, pre-formatted special kind of art post for you that links to the site. Partly because the Waterfall format isn't amazing for long-form writing, and partly because Inkwell can have some formatting options that WF can't support. This forms the writing upgrade to Art posts.
The slip in the first sentence wasn't intentional but I'm keeping it because it's funny
When will it be available?
I need a short break for a mental reset from WF, so I'm actively working on this right now. Beta could be up within a couple of days - Patrons (https://patreon.com/thellere hint hint) may get early access with everyone else being let in later, if they don't vote to release it to everyone immediately.
AO3 has started allowing people to upload sexual content involving real minors. I think we can agree we need somewhere else now.
Yes, this is another spite project, though it was also planned months ago.
When will it be available?
It'll be available for patrons to beta test in the nexrt few days. Once we've worked out the major bugs, it'll go public.
Will the site defend our right to write fanworks as much as AO3?
Yes. I'll do everything in my power to protect the users of the site and, if I am being pressured about a certain work, that user will be notified as soon as possible in private so we can work together on the matter.
What sort of features will it have?
If AO3 has it, Inkwell will have it. It'll just take a little time, especially the tagging system - but we will get there.
Feel free to hop in the Discord to discuss!
I will never be so cool again....
I just felt like doing a Blake thing so here's a Blake thing~
