Hello I'm Delphine! I go by DJ. I'm an Amazing World of Gumball fictive, chronologically 10, but most of the time up around my system's age (29).
Inworld I have pink hair and eyes, and I'm usually in my human form. But sometimes I ageslide down into my base form, a pink anthropomorphic rabbit (pictured). If I get super tired or sick I turn into a pink lion (also pictured).
I enjoy economics, microbiology, and cute things like Sanrio. Right now I'm involved with COVID-19 Resources Canada's round table, a biweekly group of experts, researchers, and members of the public, and I support my co-hosts as we manage shared and individual disabilities.
I don't really have a DNI...? To be honest I see a lot of flaws in that phenomenon, partly for sociological reasons and partly because I have ADHD and am bad at processing things. If an interaction starts feeling weird, I'll chat with you about it and we can see if we are better off giving each other space! (｡･ω･｡)ﾉ♡ I guess my only hard limits are menstruation, pregnancy and childrearing, so if you can CW those topics it would be much appreciated! But if you don't, that's okay, I will just avoid
Post a little introduction here if you like so I can get to know you! I need people to follow 🐰
Like, yeah, if you have a viral reservoir in your gut...a RAT is not gonna pick up on that. That's literally not what it's for.
I'm frustrated with the miscommunication around RATs. It is not supposed to be this difficult to understand.
⚠️ You can have COVID and NOT have any detectable viral load in your pharynx. ⚠️
We've known this since 2020.
It is a neurovascular disease. It is not a cold. So it's not always going to show up on a pharyngeal swab assay.
Sorry let me clarify what I meant by this.
I mean your negative RAT means next to nothing. Especially if it's an iHealth kit, or if you didn't swab properly.
If you're feeling sick as a dog and you think it's not COVID I have some bad news for you
Our roommate really tried to justify seeing Hamilton indoors with their mother because they've been wanting to for five years.
Gemma's grandmother is probably going to die before the pandemic ends. Her family wants us to fly across the country this summer to see her. We're not going to do it because it would be too risky for us and too risky for the roommate, among countless other people.
What is hard about this? Seriously. What.
Project DEFUSE 🦇🦠
It's taken a little while, but we're finally getting around to the EcoHealth Alliance's 2018 grant proposal to modify bat coronaviruses.
Already I can see why the proposal was rejected. The executive summary states that broadscale and targeted immune boosting would be implemented to reduce SARS-CoV- shedding in cave bats.
They wanted to vaccinate the sky puppies.
To prevent spillover.
Also if you have decided to sleep with lots of different people maybe now is not the time!!! Please detain yourself in Horny Jail until experts can tell us what is going on
Very curious to see how this orthopoxvirus plays out.
The genome from one case has been fully sequenced, and it belongs to the clade associated with a 1% fatality rate (compared to the clade associated with a 10% fatality rate). Not good news or bad news, just news.
In keeping with the effort not to associate diseases with animals, regions, or people wherever possible – and this is especially important because "monkeypox" is carried by rodents as well as monkeys – I'll be using "orthopoxvirus" until the clades are assigned numerical/alphabetical names.
Keep being safe out there and for god's sake hang out in a park please. You do not need to be inside.
I don't know if this applies broadly to OOSOOM neurotypes, but I wonder if it also explains why these two have never done any volunteer work.
"Other people are suffering, that's too bad. Guess I'll go game"?
COVID-19 Resources Canada's data and methods roundtable begins at 5:00 PM PST! Hope to see you there! (I will be masquerading as "Taylor", our singule persona )

CWs for pregnancy, menstruation, and childrearing help a ton (｡･ω･｡)ﾉ♡
