Wow, two weeks seems like such a long way off when I finish a smolZINE issue then the next one feels like comes so quickly. A lot of offline life stuff happening for me right now so this is going to be a bit of a lighter issue. BUT, there are some really cool gems in this issue.

Hidden (and not so hidden) Gems

Alexandra's Cafe

welcome to my cafe! order a chai latte (my favorite), and perhaps stay for a while — at least, until you get back on the right path. this cafe sits within the nothing, the space between the timeline you're on and the entangled timelines that make up the multiverse. it's a weird amalgamation between the truth in one life and the truth in another; maybe some form of fiction to some and reality to others.

ASCII Comics

Here we have a couple capsules with very cool and different takes on bringing a comic to gemini. she12 has a couple nice ASCII comics on their capsule. Cinni has some very detailed and ambitious ASCII comics and ASCII art galore.

Another take on bringing a comic to gemini but this time via images that are accessible via gemini.

If you're having issues connecting to a capsule bacardi55's Houston can be helpful. It's a simple tool to check whether a capsule is down or not.


The Anarcho-Catgirls' Cabin of Lettres and Wonder

I'm not sure I could give you a better picture of what this capsule is about than the title to be honest. If that sounds intriguing then give it a gander.

To play Stinky Pinky you will need to read the two descriptions below. They each describe a word and the two words rhyme. Example: 1. Smelly, 2. Finger; Answer: Stinky Pinky. Get it? You can email your answer to the address found at the bottom of each smolZINE to confirm if you are correct. The first to answer wins...uhhh I haven't figured that out yet so my congrats will have to do for now.

1. To hit, strike or beat
