Thank you, both. It means more than you know.
Sadly she passed away over night. I feel awful that I never spoke to her since she left but I got the chance to say good bye. I can only hope she heard me.
Sorry, I've been a bit absent, but I am so sorry for your loss. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: I am positive that she heard you. Wishing you love, support, and healing. :hug: :hug:

I'm very sorry for your loss, Var. It is always difficult to lose someone.

Thank you all :hug: It's really hard as I hadn't spoken to her in many years as she'd remarried for a third time, which I hadn't forgiven her for. And while I managed to get that last phone call in on what turned out to be the final day I can't help but feel guilty for it and realise I'll never get the chance to see her again.

I really did love and miss her. It just never felt like the right time and neither of us liked being the one who had to go first, leaving us in an endless loop of stubborn refusal to call the other.

Do yourselves a favour guys. If you're stuck in a similar rift... just do it. You never know if you'll get that chance again.

Rest in peace mum. I really did love and miss you, even if I never got to see you.

Oh Var, I'm so sorry 😥 Complicated relationships can make the grief even worse at times. Please take care. *hugs*

Late in replying but thank you, Wain :hug: The funeral was a couple of weeks ago (hard to think it's gone by so quickly) so I've at least had closure on that now.

New rant. Maybe it's just me being paranoid because of past events but I've now had two, completely unrelated instances of a guy asking me if I'd be interested in creating a specifically female romantic partner for their RP characters; one in WoW/various stuff and one in D&D. It's awkward enough that they specifically want the character to be female when my go-to characters are male elves, but I'm worried it's because I'm female-presenting irl and they're using it as an excuse to try and romance me.

For context I do know these people, being an old WoW GM and my current D&D DM (funny that) respectively. It's just that I've already had to turn down two guys before who tried to flirt with and/or date me (though tbf one was a young kid trying too hard and the other was a nice co-worker I barely knew).

I have been trying to use my art as a way to supplement the family income due to my being disabled. I run 2 etsy stores, redbubble and deviant art . People tell me all the time my stuff is good and yet sales are pretty non existent. I think that speaks louder than words and now am afraid I have wasted the past 3 years. Just seriously depressing.

I think it's very important to remember that right now a LOT of people are really struggling with money and are not spending it on luxury stuff at the moment.
I don't think it has anything to do with you or your art quality, I think its more because of how the world is still a mess and people are struggling to even afford rent and food.

Siggy under construction!

I'll second that. In the past I've been able to spend money on nice art, but now that money has gone to inflation and tax and rate rises :(
