I was going to post a question on Reddit about what two or three comics I should start reading that would be relatively easy to get caught up on and have good characters with little to no triggery stuff in them and have some fantasy or space opera elements, but then I realized that literally any subreddit I would post in would immediately ban my post for failing to follow some obscure rule about asking research questions and I’d be admonished by some mod for failing to have already ingested seventeen years of that specific /r/‘s culture and mores.
EDIT: because this is getting all the right kinds of lovely folk boosting—stuff I love in comic books would be things like Catherine Asaro’s Major Bhaajan, steampunk elements (god I don’t have the energy to catch up on Girl Genius but I used to love it), Honor Harrington, Xena Warrior Princess, anything hopeful future like Star Trek, the anime series Trinity Blood, no fae sexy shit because I already know how to find ACOTAR on Libby and I don’t need an illustrated guide, and whimsy eg a Psalm For The Wild-Built.

A different bit of gardening today. We were planting an olive tree and normally I'd put some AG pipe in to deep water the plant. I didn't have any handy so this time I put a layer of 7mm gravel in the bottom of the hole then put in an old bit of poly pipe. After filling in the hole, we filled the pipe with gravel. I'll leave the soil to settle down, then remove the poly pipe so there will be a gravel channel through and under the root area to take water.

@… I started to watch Poor Things with two members of my family last week on DisneyPlus or something. Unfortunately my eclecticism is notorious within the family, so the smallest sign of anything odd often gets unusual films written off as “one of those films.” I bailed quite early to avoid alienating the people I love…
