Hello! Thank you for using yiff.party!

We hope you enjoy using it. yiff.party operates on a non-profit basis, and as such, all the server expenses are paid by our users. We don't want to run ads or infect you with crypto miners. We depend on users like you to keep the site running, and to preserve years and terabytes of amazing content—some of which is no longer available from its original creators!

Because of the nature of the site, many users are reluctant to donate. That's OK! yiff.party was created so everyone can enjoy the content we host without any restrictions or paywalls. But if you value the service we provide, and are able to, we—and our users—would be tremendously grateful if you considered making a donation.

Donation progress for January 2020

So far, approximately $182.48 has been raised out of our target of $280.00. We're about 65% of the way there! Please note: this tracker is updated manually—don't worry if your donation doesn't show up immediately!

yiff.party's server costs are due on the last day of each month. So, we need to meet this goal before 31 January!

How to donate?

At this time, yiff.party can only accept donations in numerous cryptocurrencies. Please select a currency below to display the relevant donation address.

Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
Ethereum (ETH)
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Litecoin (LTC)
Why can't I donate through other means (eg. PayPal)?

Due to the nature of sites like yiff.party, it is very difficult to find payment processors who will accept clients like us. If we were to accept donations via PayPal, it wouldn't take more than a day for someone to submit an abuse report and get our account frozen. Until a viable way of accepting monetary donations becomes available, cryptocurrency will remain the only option.

There are many resources available on how to purchase crypto. For Bitcoin, check out bitcoin.org's page on buying Bitcoin for a list of methods. For beginner Bitcoin users, yiff.party recommends using an escrow service such as LocalBitcoins.

Personal - ElfQuest Fan Art Calendar 2020 2020-01-13T16:00:03+00:00

The ElfQuest Fan Art calendar for 2020 is now available for sale at Zazzle!

This calendar consists of images drawn by fans, organized through http://www.elfquestfanart.com/. The 2020 calendar theme is "Our Favorites" (fan-favorite moments from ElfQuest).

I drew the November image for the calendar, featuring Cutter fighting for his life and Rayek being a petty jerk. πŸ˜†

I share this because I love ElfQuest. While I always loved -- and grew up on -- comics, ElfQuest is probably the main reason I draw comics today, and is how I discovered the Furry Fandom. I shall probably discuss my history with "furry" (including my dislike of the term and my frustration with the concept of "furry" as a genre) another day, but for now, if you like the fact I make comics with humanoid animals, then you can, in part, thank Wendy Pini.

Financial Disclaimer: I do not know whether any profit is made from the EQFA calendars. I assume not, or that any money made from them goes to supporting the website.

Why I Dislike Man Buns 2020-01-09T09:00:01+00:00close

In truth, I personally have only one objection to "man buns": that they are called "man buns."

We already have a term for hair in a bun; it is called a "bun." I do not see why we have to specify the wearer's gender this way; we do not call buns in women's hair "woman buns."

As for the hair style, wear what works for you. I wear my hair in a braid almost all the time; I can fully sympathize with wanting some way to keep one's hair out of one's face.

This idiocy was inspired by a general chit-chat thread on the ComicFury forums. I started contributing my completely unnecessary $0.02 here, and then it spiraled into the above nonsense.

Sharpclaw Intermission - Happy New Year 2020-01-09T09:01:00+00:00close

Happy new year! Welcome to 2020!

Yes, this is two weeks later than I intended it to be.

My favorite story by Edgar Allen Poe is "The Oval Portrait." In the story, the narrator learns the history of a remarkable portrait. The painter and model were husband and wife, and the painter became so focused on his work that he failed to notice his wife weakened in health. The final line reads: "[The painter cried] 'This is indeed Life itself!' turned suddenly to regard his beloved: -- She was dead!"

I frequently draw cheerful scenes while listening to creepy tales or mournful music. I derive joy from the anger conveyed in some folk music or heavy metal music.

I mention all this because I was working on this image -- fully intending to release it publicly on January 1 (and six days early for $5+ patrons) -- when I fell sick with this darn cold that managed to wipe me out for what is now going on three weeks.

Apparently, I gave this image of Zeal all my vitality. :-P

The good news: I didn't get con crud from Midwest FurFest like I did last year, which started a full month of alternating flu and cold.

The bad news: I don't know what I caught this year, that already put me in bed all day yesterday and certainly is not gone today.

Happy holidays to you from me and my invaders.

Okay, time to confess: Who is the joker?

This is not a reference to the Batman villain. I want to know what comedian subscribed my household to Vogue with the reader name of "Zelda Master."

We have received two or three issues now, and those go straight to the recycle bin without even being opened. So, ha ha, very funny... but rather wasteful.

Mailing addresses aren't as hard to find for most people as you might think. That said, this might be a prank intended for someone else, and the prankster got the address wrong. Or it might be some hilarious database error, and some genuine subscriber might not be getting her advertisements and body shaming... er... fashion advice. Related, there might really be a Zelda Masters subscribed to Vogue who lives at a sufficiently similar address for this to be a database error... but I doubt it.

Personal - Midwest FurFest Sugar High 2019-12-09T16:01:01+00:00close

I am 43 years old and I have quite the sweet tooth. So, you would think that I would have experienced a true sugar high before this past weekend. I certainly thought that... but this past weekend proved me wrong.

I have definitely known sugar buzzes before. I have consumed cookies, candy, soda, or other sweet treats in excess and found myself feeling wired. I have consumed such treats and crashed. However, I had not, in my memory, experienced the absolute rush that I did this weekend.

Wild Bill's Soda was at Midwest FurFest. Shan and I were not familiar with this company, but we have been trying fun and interesting craft sodas on an intended-to-be-regular-but-not-in-practice-regular basis since we moved to the Saint Louis area. Wild Bill's Soda was holding a deal that a mug purchase included unlimited soda refills for the day of the purchase. So, we could buy nice mugs for home use and try the full collection of flavors. That sounded good.

We opted for one silver insulated mug, one copper insulated mug, and two anodized metal straws. Shan started with Blazing Black Cherry and I started with Sarsaparilla Six Shooter. Since I am trying to cut back on excess sugar, but I wanted to taste all the sodas, I aimed to not actually fill my mug, but just pour in a little.

Shan bought me a milk cake from a local baker for my birthday this year. I never had a milk cake before. It was made from several types of milk and cream, and its flavor is... cream, basically. I cannot think of a better way to describe the flavor of milk cake other than that it tastes like sweet milk in cake form.

I mention that because that is how Sarsaparilla Six Shooter tasted: like a soda version of milk cake. It did not taste like cream soda; it tasted much more like cream.

Blazing Black Cherry managed to somehow taste both tart and yet like pure sugar at the same time.

Outlaw Orange tasted like Creamsicle, with the emphasis on the cream.

Rocky Mountain Root Beer was the creamiest root beer I ever tried (and some Saint Louis craft root beers are amazingly creamy), and my stopping point, though there were two more flavors available, plus sweetened seltzer water.

As I mentioned, I took care to not fill my mug. The mugs can hold 20 ounces (way more soda than I need, especially when I can refill) and I wanted to try all the flavors. So, I aimed to fill to no more than 1/4 each time, including the foam, so probably got about 3-4 ounces of actual drink each time. That still adds up over three sodas (one standard can contains 12 ounces and yes, three sodas, because I took just a sip of Shan's Blazing Black Cherry). However, I accidentally let Rocky Mountain Root Beer fill to half (again, with foam, so actual soda was less, but still, the running total probably exceeds 12 ounces now).

Also, I had taken care to only take small sips of the soda, rather than any big gulps or swigs. The sugar was slowly building in my system. It was also building in my mouth, and I needed a drink. Forgetting exactly what I was drinking, I took two long draughts on my straw... of Rocky Mountain Root Beer.

My eyes went huge. My eyes watered. My eyes started crying. My mouth opened wide into a painfully wide Joker smile. I started laughing uncontrollably.

I was high.

On sugar.

Laughing maniacally and crying, I wended my way through the crowded Dealers Den to a water cooler and filled my mug with water.

I drank that water and allowed myself generous refills of water for the rest of the day.

Whoo. Wow. Good stuff, that Wild Bill's Soda. I wonder whether they sell it by the shot glass... because that is probably the most I should consume within any given day.

FYI, Shan and I are attending Midwest FurFest in Chicago, IL, this weekend.

I am just attending as an attendee, not on any panels or as a dealer... just an attendee.

But! If you find us wandering around, then ask about the copies of the sooper sekrit pr0n comic that I finished and Shan printed.

Completely related, does anyone want to be my publisher? Anyone?

Unrelated, did you in the U.S.A. have a good Thanksgiving? Did you not in the U.S.A. have a good not-Thanksgiving?

Re-reading, I realize that made it sound like I have the comic already published. I'm currently seeking a printer/publisher/distributor; the copies I'll have on hand are home-printed "Please print my comic" samples. That said, I'll hopefully make an electronic version available, too, once there is a **real** printed version. :-)

Ruby undoubtedly would share that line of thinking, if she were prone to thinking about violence, which she currently is not. Also, Holly is the only one to have demonstrated literal fire power. πŸ”₯

Urgh.

Do I ask too much of myself or too little?

I genuinely intended to spend this month writing the next few Deer Me chapters, plus finish character redesigns (yes, that is still happening, and was not a joke), plus sketch the next Sharpclaw chapter, plus sketch the next Deer Me chapter once it was written, plus get the books done, plus maintain question-and-answer updates during the current intermission for both comics, plus...

...And, so far, I have been so busy finishing the sooper sekrit pr0n comic that the only thing I have managed from the above list is the Q&A posts.

Argh!

How is your month going? If you are participating in NaNoWriMo, then how is your writing project going?

As Shan noted after he pulled these from our garden and showed them to me, "I can see why people used to think beings lived underground." They look even more like creepy hands in person than I could manage to capture in photograph.

I also pulled a couple carrots that encouraged more thoughts of human body parts. One even had that gross, wet, bloated, dead-white look television shows and movies give drowning victims, like I had pulled out part of a corpse's arm. Ew.

let's put it this way: Between me sucking at explaining myself, making mistakes, asking absurd stuff people think it's a mistake, trying to be clever/funny and do mistakes on purpose or realizing my cleverness is moot and chalking it up to a mistake or seeing i did a mistake but people think it's funny so i chalk it to "yeah, totally!" with a sarcastic tone... i get this all the times. Which is why i tend to over-explain, so that we are clear where i'm doing a mistake and where i'm doing stuff on purpose. Except then social anxiety kicks in and... πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„°πŸ„° I'M DOING IT AGAIN!

Personal - Leaving Tumblr 2019-10-14T15:00:02+00:00close

So... I have been very stupid lately.

After deciding that I would, once and for all, leave Tumblr, I have gotten anxious about ComicFury's unstable hosting in recent months, and have been rebuilding mirrors for both Deer Me and Sharpclaw on Tumblr.

This is stupid, because I have done this before, multiple times: build the sites, opt to leave Tumblr, and wipe out the sites... only to build them again later. Sharpclaw's not-yet 60 pages does not make this a long process, but Deer Me's 700 pages... take time.

Time I could better spend getting the books published, or finding a self-hosting option I do like. I would self-host, but I have not found a C.M.S. that I like and can host myself.

I make this confession of stupidity for two reasons.

1. I want accountability to keep me from wasting my time like this in the future.

2. I want accountability to keep me from ever returning to Tumblr.

(Yes, those are closely related, but #1 is more general, to be applied to other ways I waste time, and #2 is specifically about Tumblr.)

I am really angry at Tumblr right now, and I want to stay angry, this time.

I was furious when Tumblr banned "adult content," but months of relying on an increasingly unreliable comic host weakened my resolve.

My content is generally not "adult," but a few posts I made to Tumblr did get flagged. They got approved when I submitted them for further review.

Friday morning, I discovered that the total number of posts for the Deer Me mirror I was building on Tumblr was shy of the expected number by one. I started checking whether I missed a page in the recently updated chapters, since the number had been right when I last noticed Thursday. Then I had a thought, and checked the "Review Flagged Posts," despite not receiving any notice or seeing a number there.

Indeed, Tumblr had deleted a post. Tumblr had not simply flagged the post as questionable; the decision to hide my post could not be appealed. I had no recourse for that post, and never received any notification.

Nope. Just... nope. I should not have returned to Tumblr, and this is exactly why.

πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ I've honestly seen church priests more lenient than Tumblr bots. And knowing how the bots work i understand why it was flagged and deleted, for the same reasons why a ton of other stuff does not even get flagged. (spoiler: 'bots are stupid and just look at lines and delta changes of grayscale tones looking for angles and for specific line configurations, usually tiny squares of 16x16 or 32x32 pixels at a time, not the whole image) But yes, Tumblr is toxic and you did well... i just kept 1 account there for those few comics i want to scrape daily that still have not moved and i need the oAuth to do that. Good luck.... wherever you want to move. Other services that are rather easy on the purse are: The good old ones (drunkduck + smackjeeves + comicgenesis), they suck but it's known sucks so there are well known workarounds (i am told) Doing it here sucks because of how patreon handles reading comics. It... definitively was NOT thought for this. Lately Katbox seems to be growing, see if they are interested in hosting you. And then there's the newcomers like webtoons and tapas.io
user avatar
β˜… Snarkclaw - 14 Oct 19 18:46
Tumblr Bots: I get that A.I. needs training and will make mistakes. What got me was "This decision cannot be appealed." Just... nope. In addition to leaving the user helpless, it does not allow for correcting the mistaken A.I., leading to more such false flags in the future. Tumblr Subscriptions: One of the key reasons I loved using Tumblr is that it is one of the only "socials" that employs R.S.S. feeds. You can follow a Tumblr blog through its feed without having a Tumblr account. I follow a few Tumblr artists and SciShow that way, and do not need a Tumblr account to do so. Comic Hosting Options: ComicGenesis is dying, limping along for years now. Both its administrators even completely abandoned it for at least a year, and only one is returning to slap on a few bandages. I think sites on The Duck and SmackJeeves are ugly, and I am fussy about appearances. I intensely dislike WebToons and Tapas, even just as a reader. I know they are growing in popularity, but I loathe their interface... which really is built for those vertically-stacked-boxes comics. I may wind up on one or the other eventually, but only extremely begrudgingly. I agree that Patreon is really **not** built for comic reading, which is why I prefer keeping a separate site. Nice as it would be to make Patreon a one-stop shop for all my website needs... not so much. I really like the systems of ComicFury and Clickthulu... neither of which have self-hosting C.M.S. options available currently. I appreciate why, but ComicFury's recent instability is precisely why I get anxious. Not that any self-hosting solution I employ wouldn't also potentially be unstable, but I'd be able to pick up my ball and take it elsewhere in the event of problems. But..! ComicFury seems to be doing better than it was for a few weeks, and the administrator is very well aware of those recent problems. The only real self-hosting option these days is using WordPress, and I am **sooooo** not a WP fan.

Personal - Please Explain Twitter to Me 2019-10-28T15:00:02+00:00

Those who use and actually enjoy Twitter: I ask that you please explain it to me.

Seriously. I am not trying to pick a fight, and I am not preparing a rant. I genuinely want to understand what I am missing.

I have tried Twitter on and off many times over several years, and have been trying it again recently. TweetDeck makes it possible for me to post to Twitter without wanting to see the whole world burn (yay for not seeing #Trending), but trying to read posts from even the relatively few accounts I follow is just... yuck.

What a terrible interface for reading or viewing anything. I feel like I am looking at some terrible, stream-of-consciousness, unorganized Round Robin typed with questionable grammar, atrocious spelling, unpredictable capitalization, unreliable punctuation, too many emojis, and a tendency towards "straw man" rants.

So, really, please explain how Twitter provides you enjoyment. I sincerely want to know.

I think the secret to twitter is A) Private account so your posts don’t get weird replies when you mention a company. B) Follow only Friends and people who you are interested in C) Don’t feel bad about hiding retweets or unfollowing if that’s what you gotta do D) I consume 99% through Tweetbot since it is always sorted by recent.

Honestly i use "gallery-dl" to read the tweets of those i want to follow. https://github.com/mikf/gallery-dl/releases/ You can set it to download the images and text of people and how to save stuff so that - it gets rid of reshares. - it allows you to focus only on what they produce. - it basically bends twitter to how you want to read it. Though be warned... the manual is as "easy" as any python based command-line program can be, i basically installed python made a config file a list of people i want it to download feeds from... aaaand a batch file so that it self-downloads updates of all its components, taked the config and the list of people and spews errors and logs onto a "something" of my choice. You strike me as somebody who would not get daunted by something like this... so it should not be too hard.... Buuuut i've been using spiders all my life because i can't be bothered to have people tell me how i should be enjoying my free time on their platforms, and so that my computer does my job for me the way i tell it to do it because "i got no time fo' that!" what might be "easy" for me might be atrocious for other people. Soooo yeah. That said. - stream of consciousness - yyyyyyeeeeeppppp. πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜– main reason why i tell it to ignore reshares. Sure sometimes it might be nice to take what people like... if those people are serious users. Buuut most of the time it's like the "meme channel" in a chat server got mixed with the "serious business channel" and it swaps from one to the other. Worst part... it's intentional. Basically it's why people like it. Don't ask me why people like it. I keep my chat server very well organized thank you. - questionable grammar, atrocious spelling, unpredictable capitalization, unreliable punctuation, too many emojis - I feel like i use way too many memes in my speech, am waaay too ranty and spew waaaaaaay too many emojis already. Buuut one look at unfiltered twitter and suddenly i feel like a composed and restrained victorian lord. πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ - "straw man rants" - Yeah. Don't. Get. Me. Started. I (somewhat) understand the need to rant about stuff that gets one annoyed. But the problem with twitter is that you have less than an SMS to work with. Any rant can only be straw-hat. There is zero tolerance for any specificity. Both because you don't have the physical space and because your comments are public and thus people will take offense both if you are too generic or too specific, so the only way is to create a "fictional" enemy that has to be wrong. So. I use the spider above, filter 99% of the πŸ’© with an happy face and either download galleries from artists i like but would not like to hear what they spew rather than say... or download texts from those people i somewhat like or both for those who can do art and can string two sentences in a row without annoying me. it makes the world so much better to live into when you can take only the best sides of people and ignore their worst.

Confession: I have a terrible habit of closing accounts when I think I am done using a service. I am trying to learn to just let things sit, since I frequently have been wrong about how final my departure from a service is.

For example, this is my third time joining NaNoWriMo. Since NaNoWriMo does not recycle usernames, I am now on my third: DeerMe.

With that embarrassing admission out of the way...

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this November? I plan to. As usual (for me), I do not plan on writing a novel, but to instead use this time of a whole community shouting, "Write, write, write!" to write more comic scripts.

Do you have a writing project planned for NaNoWriMo? Connect with me as a buddy on the site, and we can shout "Write, write, write!" at each other next month!

The house we bought had a great greenhouse and garden set-up, and we have been learning how to garden.

I picked all this just this morning, all planted by Shan earlier this year. I think we are pretty good at raising cherry tomatoes. :-)

Oh, no, that tomato is not big. For BIG, you should have seen some of the cucumbers we harvested earlier this year. Those were longer than my forearm and probably 2x or 3x the diameter. Gardening has me appreciating how those monstrously sized fruits and vegetables found at county fairs can exist! Yet our watermelons are all pretty small, so far.

Personal - Ironic Flooding Problem 2019-09-30T15:00:02+00:00

So... This is ironic.

This year, the Saint Louis area suffered near-record-levels of flooding. Apparently, the flood of 1994 was the worst on record for the area, and this year's flood got close. In some places, the floods were second or third highest, and in a few places, it did exceed 1994's flooding.

Shan and I very specifically avoided moving into flood plains when we moved here. When house-hunting, the first house to catch our eye was so close to perfect. It had features we wanted, and features we did not know we wanted until we saw photographs of the house. It was stunning. And affordable. Because it was fully within a flood plain.

But that was a 100-year flood plain; the flooding was supposedly only likely one out of every hundred years! ...Like a lot of flood plains around here... that sure have flooded more frequently than every hundred years. We skipped that house, and I do really like the house we have. The house we have completely avoided all this year's flooding problems.

You know where this is going.

We went on vacation during the last days of August and first days of September, visiting Nashville and Memphis. Memphis is nice, but we decided to end the originally 7-day trip two days early, figuring we would do a couple "staycation" things back home instead, visiting some Saint Louis destinations we had not yet seen.

Good thing we made that choice to return early, because we came home to find the basement flooding.

Our house avoided one of the area's worst floods on record, only to be flooded due to a broken main water line.

Whee.

Personal - Second Allergy Season 2019-09-23T15:01:00+00:00

Ugh. I suffer hay fever during the spring and early summer, and now I suffer it again in late summer and early autumn, too.

Nowhere else have I ever suffered allergy season this late, I believe. I know some of my allergy seasons extended distressingly far into the summer back in the Seattle area. Here in the Saint Louis area, ragweed triggers a second hay fever season for some people... including lucky, lucky me.

I did not experience this second allergy season at all the year we moved here, 2017. 2017 was a great year for me when it came to allergies. I left Seattle before allergy season really hit there, and my immune system was not yet acquainted with the allergens here in Saint Louis.

Spring 2018 was pretty bad for my allergies, and August 2018 surprised me with a (fortunately much milder) resurgence of hay fever. After that, I learned of the ragweed-allergy season. This spring and early summer, my allergies were under better control than they had been the same time in 2018... but ragweed season this year seems to be trying to make up for that easiness on me.

Ugh.

Rant - I Must Make Publishing A Priority 2019-09-03T15:00:03+00:00

Urgh.

I don't want to choose a self-publishing printer service. I want someone else to do this stuff for me. I feel stymied by too many choices.

Quick goal check-in! So far this year, I have accomplished none of my goals, save for keeping up with Deer Me and Sharpclaw comic updates, and even that might go south within a few weeks. Argle blargle phooey.

So, I'm making myself do two things this week, in addition to the usual "draw comics" assignment:

1. For Deer Me, actually pick a printer and compile at least the very first chapter. Not the whole book, necessarily, but the first chapter. Baby steps.

2. For Sharpclaw, submit it to one publisher. Just one. Baby steps.

Bleah. Would anyone like to do this for me? Just kidding / not just kidding.

Question, and yes, I have asked some of you individually before, and I did keep your answers, but I ask again:

Do you have experience with any of the printing companies? As a self-publisher or as a buyer? Is there a company that you recommend using? Or one you recommend avoiding?

Honestly most people use Lulu, it's got the most "invasive" print service. and gets people their comics without many custom fees. A good second choice is drivethru comics. Both have a print-on-demand option which will get a book printed and delivered rather quickly, and they both have a store front that asks you to just fill the stuff. As for compiling stuff to be printed... yyyyeah, better you do it yourself. It's the only way to be sure that you will like the result. πŸ˜…
Conventions, Conventions (Lotsa Links) 2019-09-02T15:01:00+00:00

I attended a convention this weekend! And Viana attended a completely different convention this weekend!

I attended Mephit FurMeet on Friday. I was only there for the one day, but the feel was definitely "relaxacon." It is not big enough to specifically travel to, but is worthwhile if you want a convention and have other reasons to be in the area... as was my case. The tee-shirt art is really cute... certainly one of the better designs I have seen. And I bought a knitted octopus hat! The dealers den was definitely the highlight for me: well-supplied with a diverse set of vendors, and not so busy that I got shoved around (like at Midwest FurFest last year).

Meanwhile, Viana attended FuryCon! My current comic host, ComicFury, has an active community and members often run "Secret Santa" style exchanges and post the results together as one comic arc. The latest was FuryCon, a convention-themed exchange in which the creator must include at least one character from the assigned comic and one of the creator's own characters doing something at a convention. Honestly, I love this theme, and adore the submission from the creator assigned to Deer Me. Go read about Viana getting annoyed when Jared Raul sells out... uh... sells Wombat Wonder to a distributor.
