Though people commonly assume steady progress — as they have in estimates of racial progress collected in the American National Election Survey or at Pew – the reality, in terms of wealth and many other financial indicators (including wages and income), is that society does not constantly move forward towards greater racial equity over time. Inertia and backlash are possible, too.
A determined belief in constant progress toward racial equity, despite contrary evidence, makes it far more difficult to enact the kind of large societal changes necessary to actually transform society into the more equitable version of itself that people have in mind. This tendency to believe in progress means that people believe things are pretty equitable already and, by implication, we do not need to rush to make many (or any) big changes to our current practices.
A belief in automatic, natural and linear progress also suggests that time – and not behaviour – is the causal mechanism for producing racial equity. Essentially, rather than doing the sometimes difficult work of transforming racist policies, people might just wait for those policies to lose favour over time. In this way, patience can be construed as an effective strategy for producing progress, and action can be seen as rash or even likely to backfire.

Hi, this might be a long shot, but I was wondering if you had ever downloaded a copy of treeviality's go then, there are other worlds than these? That fic helped me through a tough time, and I'm a bit devastated that its gone now.
Oooh boy. I hadn't realised treeviality deleted their works until now, and I'm as devastated as you are. I don't have the file personally but I reached out to my friends and we're putting together a small archive with the works we have, watch this space for a link soon.
If anyone reading this has downloaded copies of them, please feel free to send them to me, so they can be preserved as they deserve.
I love treeviality's work, like most people in the shadowgast corner of the fandom, and they were always the kindest person in our short interactions. I really hope they're okay.

I made my choice, Essek thinks, cradled in Caleb’s fading warmth, and soon, the quiet takes him, too.
I would apologize, but I think you should all blame @saturdaysky​ for this Calamity AU fic

You asked for it, so here it is- a shoddily composed but nonetheless candid and hopefully useful tutorial on the Mosaic Effect I used in the Mollymauk portrait.  Those of a stout and courageous spirit, read on.

Long before the fall, the Architect Arcane and the Keeper of Scrolls have a long overdue conversation.
aka the prequel to @saturdaysky’s very tragic, very excellent fic about confessing your feelings when it’s too late to do anything about it.
(this is inspired by Exu: Calamity, of course, but contains minor to no spoilers for the campaign!)
