My main trade is creating monster girl OCs (youkai in particular, among others) for the sake of populating a vaguely coherent common universe.

While I appreciate the growing popularity and enthusiasm for the monster girl genre, the "fantasy girlfriend" aspect of it is not my focus nor target audience. I'm interested in the "humanity outside of humanity" aspect, the exploration of races and cultures that are not our own.

Long story short, I'm not primarily providing for the ecchi audience, they have no shortage of options. I see this genre as having more potential than that, but I don't begrudge those who enjoy it as an indulgence. I do too, on some days.

With that explained, please enjoy my humble efforts.
I decided that when I don't have enough material for a new world-building essay, I'll be writing posts like this with small disconnected harpy facts: I'm going to call them Bird Baths, 'cause they'll be short and sweet like one.
So without further ado!
  • In harpies, wing down goes all the way up the shoulders and joins below the neck, forming a soft, fuzzy patch on the chest. Nuzzling this "tuft" is a very intimate gesture of affection, normally reserved for family and lovers;
  • Speaking of gestures, if you see two harpies leaning on each other's shoulder and lightly touching noses, it means "we are a happy, loving couple";
  • Raptor harpies have developed canines like mammal predators, and usually their babies don't require weaning as they're perfectly able to eat adult food, provided it's cut into small enough pieces;
  • To expand on a previous note, most harpies have the lean, compact but powerful muscles of a human marathon runner or trained soldier, minimizing weight while giving them enough strength to leap off the ground, and in some cases carry their own weight - they may be light and graceful, but absolutely never think of them as weak;
  • Small passerine harpies like sparrows absolutely love dogberries and winterberries - dogberry pie and winterberry shortcake are the top favourite desserts of harpy schoolgirls everywhere;
  • Being territorial and with a strong protective instinct, goose harpies are usually employed in the security business (this actually has basis in real life: geese and llamas are better guards than even dogs!);
  • Pelican harpies have cheek pouches, like hamsters!

That's all for now. Thanks for reading!

What's up? Been a while, but my scriptbook is finally out.

Moreover, I'm working on new projects now. Hope you're still interested in shmups.

Hey there! Hope you're still around.

I remember you because of your personifications for shmup aircraft, which I enjoyed. In fact, I've been working on a personal project specifically for shmup fans (as well as a message about having an overgrown military).

Aah, that was like 10 years ago though. I've been busy with other projects and ideas these days.
But thank you for the note.

I know, still a fun memory.

Actually, I just finished another project and will be releasing it next month! I'm just now working on the other ideal series I have planned. If you want, I can share them on a note.
