the authors, designers, and programmers of PORTFIEND all act under a single name, "P" (but sometimes people catch-all call us Huck). some facts about P:
- adult, early 20s
- any pronouns (with some preferences)
- identify as: transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, alterhuman, plural system, neurodivergent, disabled
- currently lives in Florida, USA
- not even 5 feet tall
some things i do
here is some of the work i've done in the past and present!
when i was about 18-20 years old, i ran a tumblr blog called customemoji that made edits of emojis from the Twemoji set on request. this scratched a bit of a vector art itch, and i still see people using the emojis from that blog out in the wild!
eventually, exhaustion, overwhelm, and fatigue caught up and the blog was softly "retired". i still very occasionally post on it, but requests are no longer actively responded to.
we were also kind of young, immature, and struggling to handle an excess of public attention, so if you would like to see just the emojis and not the rest of the blog, use the custom emoji tag!
Homebrew Deviants as vyn [2021 - now]
Homebrew Deviants is a creative studio focusing on fantasy worlds, prominently featuring stories about animal people, magic, and recovery
i do some programming, writing, design, web development, and art here and there!
fair warning: HD is meant for 16+ audiences (with some more mature 18+ content sometimes.) these stories may feature heavy themes and imagery (such as sexuality, violence, illustrated gore, body horror, trauma, and abuse).
in early 2023, i rewrote Homebrew Deviants' story directory in Python in order to host Homebrew Deviants quests, including the front-end design of it. check it out!!
Corporate Clash as huck [2023 - now]
i am a game developer for the game Toontown: Corporate Clash! i am credited under the Technical Team as Huck.
Objectum Media as des [2023 - now]
i run a neocities website called Objectum Media, a media list for people in the Objectum and POSIC+ communities - people who feel relationship attachments to objects, perceive certain objects as sentient, or simply enjoy these themes in media.
this website is basically 100% run, programmed, and designed by me, with reader suggestions for media given and occasional reviews provided by volunteers. i've been a little busy to update it, though...
this website as P [2022 - now]
everything you see here was coded by me!
PORTFIEND was started as an effort to be able to post about myself without worrying about numbers, view counts, algorithms, and similar trappings of social media. i think it has evolved into a bit of an art piece, representing a desire for authenticity and personal growth without having to follow someone else's rules.
if you wanna know what resources i used to make this website, check out About This Website!
that's cool! i wanna hire you
i am unfortunately Very Bad at figuring out my pricing for paid work. with that said though, due to increasing IRL pressure, i am very hesitant to work for free. choose a method of contact and i'll try my best to respond! or you can check out my commissions page and order something.
fair warning: while i am in Florida, my internet is VERY bad (about 2mbs download). this makes me a bit slower to respond and work on things. watching videos is difficult, so you can sort of imagine how everything else is!! i'm trying, i promise!
where to find me
- huck (friend requests are sort of selective)
- VYN#3592 (only people we've talked to previously)
if you would like to hit me up, feel free!! especially if you're in a webring with me. however, you should probably indicate how you found me somehow because i get very awkward with random dms.
we aren't super open constantly about our plurality; e.g. we don't clarify who's in "front" most of the time. however, if you're in a conversation with us, it's completely okay to ask. we prefer "headmates" to refer to members of the system, and generally we use "i/us" instead of "we/our" to refer to ourselves (this paragraph is just for clarity)
feel free to ask me questions about this, even if they seem invasive. if i don't want to answer a question, i simply won't - no judgement passed. however if you try to get my opinions about online arguments i will probably ignore you
some of us are listed with certain skills; while all system members share skills, some are more confident/passionate about certain skills/interests than others
