She is neither a cloud, and honestly she’s rather pale so I’m not really sure how she’s getting this name. Somehow, our conjured memory also decided to give her a pedicure. But it was Gaia’s idea to restore the darkness, so here we are. Sponsored by Monster Energy Drinks, maybe.

We still need your help!

Thanks to your support, SaltedXIV raised nearly $2,000 for RAINN in support of sexual assault awareness.

But this fight isn’t over. As long communities keep actively silencing victims and assault discussions, this fight will keep going. This site and this community still need your help. Any contributions are helpful, no matter how small. 

I also want to encourage reading and discussion of these experiences. There are leaders and pillars of this community actively silencing or proliferating anyone speaking out. Please don’t stand for this. Please don’t support communities that silence victims, that not only rip off designs, but have mentors who sabotaged this site and faced no reproach.

We can be better than this.
