At Nine Worlds, I purchased a copy of Zen Cho’s beautiful collection entitled Spirits Abroad, published by the Malaysian press Buku Fixi. I was struck by the publisher’s manifesto, which appears on the back of the flyleaf. In this manifesto, the publisher states:

We will not use italics for non-American/non-English terms.

The publisher then goes on to say: “Nasi lemak and kongkek are some of the pleasures of Malaysian life that should be celebrated without apology; italics are a form of apology.”

Reading this and considering italics as a form of apology, I find myself thinking of writers coming from countries that have endured colonization, from countries where English is an imposed tongue. I find myself asking: do we really need to explain everything to the imagined Western reader? I think of italics, apologies and explanations, and the connecting line between these words.

If we have read and consumed work from writers from the West without complaint, if we have gone that extra step to fully engage with that work, surely we can trust that those who seek out our stories will also take that extra step to meet us halfway.

reverse werewolves. wolves that turn into confused but excited humans every month at the full moon and run around doing weird human stuff until they wake up the next day in the middle of an office with a suit loosely draped over their wolf form

HELLO FRIENDS. As you may have heard, registration is opening for 24 hours for a game I play called Flight Rising, starting in like 5 hours. So I’d like to take this opportunity to invite all of my followers to come play with me! My name on there is Raiona (surprise, surprise) and I’m part of the Nature flight.
The above graphic from FR does a pretty good job of explaining the basics of the site, but read on for some deeper explanation!

What is Flight Rising?
At its core, Flight Rising is a brower-based dragon breeding game. There’s nothing to download and no fees. You collect dragons and put pairs together and get MORE dragons with a variety of color, breed and gene combinations. But that’s hardly all the site has to offer. 
What else do you do?
Supported by the site, you can collect items, dress up your dragons, play games, and battle in the coliseum (against NPCs or against other players), but Flight Rising has also given rise to a large community of writers and artists that bring their dragons to life. A lot of people create stories for their Clan and interact in roleplay, or make art in the form of commissions or adoptables! The community is my favorite part about Flight Rising. As a whole, they’re kind and generous and fun. 
I’m sold. How do I start?
Yay! Welcome to Flight Rising. The first thing you’ll do when you join the site is select a Flight. There are 11 elemental flights, and this choice is relatively important. The most immediately apparent thing your flight choice will affect is the color of your dragons’ eyes. You can of course breed dragons in nests of people from other flights, but any born into your lair will match your flight. Here’s a handy guide!  Your Flight will also be your community within a community. You’ll have access to your flight’s private forums and if your flight wins Dominance (explained later) for the week, you will benefit! The members of each flight also tend to reflect the natures/values the flight is known for. You can read about each flight here. It’s a large decision, but don’t fret! You can change your flight once for free!
After you choose your flight, you will get to create a dragon! This is the only dragon on the site you will ever get to hand-pick the colors for - but you only get to pick two colors (Primary and Secondary) the third (Tertiary) will be randomized. After this, you will receive a completely randomized mate for your dragon (these first two are referred to as ‘progenitors’) and then you get to play! You can spend your time collecting dragons, playing games, chatting in the forums, whatever. I highly recommend stopping by your Flight’s private forums because there will be a lot of welcoming gifts and guides and people you can talk to.
I could write an entire guide about every aspect of the game, but there are so many already that you’re really better off poking around the forums or asking specific questions of me or someone else. But hopefully this can get you started! 
Again, my name on the site is Raiona and I’m part of the Nature flight, so feel free to come give me a poke! My FR blog is raiona-rising if you want to see what sorts of shenanigans I get up to.
