Pinned toot

Howdy! We're the Archimedes Construct, formerly known as the Soilforged! We have undergone a lot of changes in-system, and are now a group of 7-10 people!

We're almost entirely fictives/fictionkin, though for personal reasons most of us go by different names than our canon sources!

Most of our headmates are now retired, and our fronters are usually one of three (sometimes all three...) people: Rusty, Quentin (formerly known as Q or rarely, Cro), and Ragnar (somewhat new. He's been here for almost a year as of 2/18/2020, but he is extremely shy and mainly posts on Tumblr rather than here).

plural.cafe new emojis (screen reader unfriendly) 

Hey folks, I don't know if anyone remembers when @treblesand showed up a month and a half ago and provided us with a new symbol for plurality, but we've finally added a whole slew of pride flag versions of it as emoji here.

Enjoy, y'all.

computer nostalgia 

I appreciate that the only hints that this screenshot of my music player was not taken in 1999 are a handful of the song titles.

Okay, that, and I don't think I had a Windows machine with this amount of vertical height until 2006.

patterns i made for my internship. im going to use them to make holiday cards - but today is guam history day so 🙆‍♀️ time to celebrate

Integration of headmates 

..I think I might be like... Merging with Quentin??? Maybe??? Or maybe it's just because they're a soulbond and they've been with me since 2004??? I don't know. I'm very conflicted about this.

System stuff, not fitting in /2 

@ThePrimulaSystem For example we're so melded together & blend instead of cofront. But we feel like different people, not facets of a whole like median systems. We don't have a headspace. We have little/no idea why we're plural/where we came from (though sometimes we say endogenic bc no evidence of trauma). The way we front/switch is odd - it often feels like there's a switching between perceptive lenses over our consciousness, like those eye tests at the doctor💙

System stuff, not fitting in💙 

On a logical level I know that every system is different, and there's esp. lots of variety among non-DID & endogenic systems. But emotionally I can't seem to stop feeling "different", insecure and like our experiences don't fit the narrative that they "should" fit. Many widely used system terms don't apply to us. A lot of online advice doesn't fit us. I often feel alienated & worried our plurality won't be believed even by origin-inclusive peoples :( 💙Blue

important mh advice, take from it what you will 

instead of saying things like "im so worthless" "im a bad person" "im hopeless" etc etc etc, its important to first acknowledge that these things are NOT TRUE. the best way to escape these thoughts, regardless if you actually believe it, is to come from the perspective that they ARE NOT TRUE.
from there, one of the best ways to support this is to talk to people. approach people and say "ive been having these negative thoughts about myself. please help." coming from the angle of seeking assistance instead of just aimlessly insulting yourself is already making leaps of progress. stuff like this has helped me a lot.

We made a friend who we care about a lot and love a lot. A friend who has a muse that we love so much. But now that friend is going into hiding because of conversation that Host was part of last night. Nobody did anything wrong, it is the friend's own badbrain.

But we feel like we need to hide too. Go back into hiding and return to the backend of the Constuct. But Host also wants to hide. We all have similar badbrain, and it just... Feeds into itself. We don't know what to do. Friend is avoiding everyone from their own badbrain. We don't want to lose our friend. ::(
