there aren’t enough sad(tm) arranged marriage fics

@witchfynder_finder that’s the idea!!

i mean the point is that every letterform is distinct and legible at small sizes but in ordinary english that is very much not the case so i change certain things a fair bit and it makes them MORE legible i just worry because they’re also more different

the other problem with making a habit of writing like this is that although ※i※ know that this says « Westley’s boring adaptation of the Mario and Luigi franchise » i worry that it has become basically impenetrable to anyone else

my very ballpark estimation is about two minutes of reading per page, by which i mean 500–600 words, whereas cursive is more like 225–250 (a little under one minute) [with more variation because cursive can sprawl]

honestly filling a full page with double lines of unicameral script feels really nice, it’s just like, all text

and despite being half-height it’s still at least as legible as cursive script; the only downside is that it’s much slower to write

@benhamill @witchfynder_finder pretty sure nobody who actually helps people for a living likes cops. like i’ve never heard of one. except maybe some teachers because schools are a fuck

@wxcafe @hierarchon right i mean if backcompat is the issue you could support <li> and just stick a <br> at the end of every one instead of dropping the tags which helps nobody

or have a separate API endpoint request which supports full HTML and autoconvert non‐legacy HTML into markdown for older clients

or… or… (point is that you can support legacy software better by acknowledging a feature than by ignoring it)

if you are a good writer you can pull it off for a few chapters but eventually i’m gonna wise to the fact that you haven’t actually thought about your approach at all and are just playing

honestly all of my stories read very differently i don’t understand people who always write the same
