Chapter 1

You find yourself in an otherworldly forest.

Though going through the portal felt like you were being flung far through time and space, the warping of reality itsef pulling you until you thought you would tear at the seams, your unceremonious exit was a few staggering steps forward and falling into a heap in what felt like lush, soft grass. As you lay there for just a few moments recovering from your harrowing journey, your new surroundings are alive with humming insects and creatures, none of which you recognize. All around you, peeking through the dense trees, are glowing flowers that vaguely resemble roses. the gloweing dust that drifts gently off each bloom lazily flits to the forest canopy in a glittering haze.

As you finally sit up again you glance to each side for the cat, the small black cat you followed here, with the pale moonlit eyes. You quickly rise as you spot it, glancing back over its shoulder at you between two great trees far in the distance, but before you can fully get to your feet again, the cat leaps away into the blackness of the night, and you realize you are alone... though the thought does not frighten you as much as you feel it should.

You look behind you for the portal you came through, only to find it gone...


welcome to my little web garden :3 or maybe not so little, haha
the (slightly late) 5-year anniversary layout rewrite is finally done! yay!

this is a personal website just for me and my interests and the little characters i've made up i like to think of little stories for. the content may be kind of all over the place for that reason!
the mini-story that begins on this page at the top and bottom also continues on some other pages. this site is (loosely) based on a place in my personal writing, and the story is partially for fun but also partially to give a tiny bit of what the setting is of the place this website depicts.

this site used to be written in php on my main site, but i am admittedly a neurotic person lol melting smiley face. and having a site that requires paid server access was increasingly making me anxious. i'm still keeping both neocities and dreamhost active, and just mirroring them to each other; there are likely still yet things i want to do with server-side access...

lastly, please note: this site may look strange or even cease to function properly in the Safari browser or any browser on iOS. if you are viewing this website in safari or on an iOS device, i strongly suggest opening this on something else.
this isn't entirely by my choice; i don't own any apple devices to wrangle safari and webkit's absolutely massive glut of bugs and rendering glitches, and apple refuses to release safari for anything that isn't its own OSes (and i am honestly not interested in getting even an old apple device just for testing, especially since safari versions seem to frustratingly be tied to the OS version itself which would necessitate a wide array of devices...). even worse, iOS forces all browsers installed on it to use safari's webkit engine, so you can't escape the awful glitchy hell by using something better than safari. sigh.
until apple gets its shit together (which i don't expect to ever happen), the existence of the clusterfuck of rendering glitches known as webkit and safari necessitate this message.

that said, i hope you enjoy your stay!
