miscellaneous things that i didn't want to dedicate an entire page to

social media

all of the social media accounts that i think are worth knowing about in no particular order. i'm only listing the ones that i actually need to remember and not actually all of my accounts.

also if you're asking, unless otherwise noted, i am active and inactive everywhere at any given time. falling off the face of the online world is a normal and healthy thing to do. i like having a life outside of my computer.


archive of our own
the original jaderiverday on ao3. i don't care if this doesn't count as social media; i list it on my carrd, and it's probably one of the most important sites i'm on. all of my published fanfiction is on here, so if you want my fics, this is where you go.
the not-so-original jaderiverday on sqwa. i made this during the 2023 ddos attacks on ao3 because i realized that now that fanfiction is centralized on ao3, if anything happens to ao3, access to all those fics will disappear with it. still working on reposting works to sqwa, and not all fics will be reposted because of the quality of writing. if you don't like the default color scheme, my favorite site skin is the tide skin - dark (tide skin - mobile fix is identical)
barebones fediverse blog i set up as an alternative for ao3 and sqwa. i'm not terribly fond of the layout, so i'm waiting for it to exit beta before i do much more with it. i would've picked a writefreely instance, but either i feel like i'd be out of place, or i have to pay. there's nothing on here, but you can follow it from the fediverse.


main twitter account. due to the actions of one morally reprehensible billionaire, this account is no longer being used and will be deactivated soon. mostly genshin with a smidge of other fandoms. replaced with mastodon account (see below)
someone from 2015 took the @saidtheriver handle, so i had to put an underscore at the end. paradox live and paradox live only, plus a threadfic or two here and there. media tab is all of the paralive fanfictions i've posted to ao3. will still be active until i finish the hajunayu soulmate au and will likely deactivate when i post that to ao3, whenever that is.
i have a lingtwt/langtwt account, but that was my first ever twitter account, and i still don't really know how to use twitter for languages and linguistics. i think it's not worth mentioning; the occasional discourse i got into on that account drove the value of that account down


i have a main blog. incredible. it's my first tumblr blog that went through a lot of different changes as my interests changed over time. it doesn't have a similar url as my other usernames, so i think it's a fun little challenge for people to try and find it.
this is my langblr, which on occasion i post and reblog things about the languages that i'm learning at the moment. there are many different languages and many different resources on here that i might put on my languages page at some point in time. i love sucrose.
yep, bakijak again. i made this the first time twitter was going to shit because of elon musk. my dedicated fandom blog, although i do more than just fandom stuff on this blog because of how i've set up my feed. mostly genshin, but as the title implies, a lot more things that remind me of chiyaka. we'll see how long this phase lasts given the fact that chiyaka has like 5 shippers total.
yep, saidtheriver again, this time without the underscore because tumblr doesn't allow underscores in urls and because i don't need to have one. i also made this because twitter was going to shit because of elon musk, the second time around with the whole rebranding nonsense. like the twitter account of the very similar username, pretty much just paradox live, but with more text. thank tumblr for unlimited characters.


main mastodon account. mostly english, but because i've combined my three twitter accounts into one mastodon account, it might occasionally spiral into multilingual madness. bless mastodon for having the option to specify what language your posts are in. more writing and star rail posting than my other accounts. gotta say, mastodon's been the best social media experience i've ever had, hand's down.
alt mastodon account. pretty much entirely in chinese because the fairy.id instance is mostly chinese. not much on there mostly because i don't know what to do with a chinese only alt

element/matrix protocol

i only got this to try out element as a potential discord alternative (it's not the greatest alternative, but it works and it's e2ee, so that's nice). i don't use this at all, but it's nice to be part of two fediverses.


a jade by any other name
discord fucked up big time when they changed their usernames. surprise surprise, this is actually where the name for this website came from! of course, it came from shakespeare's romeo and juliet "a rose by any other name would be just as sweet", but since i'm a jade, and jades are green rocks, the full thing would've been "a jade by any other name would be just as green". it occurs to me that i put my most used social media at the bottom of the list, but i don't take friend requests from everyone, so it's a bit useless.
