i'm gen, a fuzzy fantasy artist on the spectrum. i dabble in a lot of things. sometimes i go by the names of halley or yukai.

i wanna make stuff that helps provide warmth in a cold world. let's all be kinder to ourselves and each other.

i'm generally pretty lax on who follows me, but 2019 left me in a really rough spot, so i feel this page is necessary.

this should generally be common sense, but if you're transphobic, racist, ableist, pedophilic, or any of that nasty shit, go away. i will block you on sight. you are not welcome here.
i can't draw humans. i can draw furries, monsters, and nonhumans, but i can't draw humans or anything that looks really human. however, i can draw furry versions of human characters. please keep that in mind, especially when commissioning me.
please do not vague me or lie about me. if you have a problem with me, i'd prefer if you spoke upfront to me about it, and do NOT get hostile or yell at me when doing so. i don't like confronting people or making them uncomfortable, but not everything comes to me easily; i am doing my best to be a good person, but i do need to be told when i'm doing something wrong. i don't know everything and everything's a learning experience for me.
ask me before venting intense emotional problems to me, and please do not abuse my kindness. i'm extremely empathetic; i can provide a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear, but too much negativity only drains me in turn. i'm not your therapist or your personal emotional dumping ground, and i cannot fix your problems. i have enough of my own problems to deal with as it is, it is entirely up to you to deal with your own issues.
don't even bother following if you alienate people or talk shit about others over innocuous things like being into video games or characters you're not personally into, non-harmful alternate character interpretations, or non-hostile criticisms about things you like. yes, i know this is bizzarely specific, but i've seen this happen too much. it's draining. you know who you are. you're better than this.
please do not interact if you speak ill of people who haven't hurt you. i don't want to be associated with anyone who says nasty things about others behind my back. i can't be around anyone who's fueled by hate, negativity, and hostility; it's just not mentally healthy for me.
if you claim to promote positivity and kindness and acceptance while talking shit about others behind their backs who haven't hurt you just because of their inoffensive interests, stay the hell away from me. you are a hypocrite and i want nothing to do with you.
do NOT follow me or even interact with me if you follow or associate with any of these people or their projects. i do not feel safe around these people; i've had bad experiences with them, and i'd rather not have any more of that in my life. please DO NOT harass these people; i don't want to fight, i just want some peace of mind. please grant me that.

--shadman/shadbase (cheating a little coz i've never interacted with him but honestly you shouldn't be following him anyway. he's a gross man.)

uhhhh i tend to mute a lot of sensitive topics i guess? it just gets me on edge, especially since i can't really do much about it. that's it, really?

feel free to DM me an animal emoji just so i know you read this. you don't absolutely have to, but i'd appreciate it!
