Special Announcement

Hey everyone it’s Kern here, got big news for you today for those of you that enjoy serialized fictions. I’m writing one.

Patrons have already received the precursor chapter. All of my serialized fiction will be going out here, as well as a special “fiction only” website where I will be archiving ALL of my original works.

Gold Heart, Silver Chain

Written by: Kernook, The Demented Ferret

Updates: Every Wednesday

Summary: Upon the hexagonal super-continent of Basa, three distinct races live and thrive. The peaceful peoples of the lowlands known as Aasa are shapeshifters that live in harmony with the wilds. The ruthless Cadfan, a warrior people, survive amidst the harshest conditions. Last, but not least, the Arvad people wander the super-continent of Basa, never staying in one place for too long. Blare Blodwyn is one such Arvad nomad, and she’s come of age to get married. Her sights are set firmly upon the Cadfan woman, Valda Birendra. Unfortunately for Blare, with complex nuptials on the horizon and a chilly tempered Cadfan as a suitor, she’s in for more than one headache.

More Information: This is an experimental story focused heavily upon world building. Different themes and POV will be toyed with throughout the story. While other romances may show up, this is a fictional story about romance between other women.

Please do mind the genres and tags listed, as they will be expanded upon as the fiction continues.

Genres: Romance, Slice-of-Life, Drama, Fantasy.

Tags: F/F, M/F, Mature Sensual Content, Mild Fantasy Violence.

Status: Incomplete, updates every Wednesday.

No warnings currently apply.

The author has decided to label this serialized content as “M-rated ” due to romantic overtures between adult women and use of hard language (cursing/swearing). No severe warnings apply to this fiction. Warnings will be added on an as needed basis.

Cover photo imagery for this fiction was provided by Kern, of “The Demented Ferrets”.

So why a new site, you ask? Simple, because I have far too many original works that they would end up cluttering the space here, which is why only serialized works will be placed here…. I hope you understand…

In any case, the new website will be launched on April 13, 2022 with drabbles and one shots provided… but for now enjoy this teaser… and if you want to read the 1,912 word precursor, that’s out on our Patreon now…

The precursor will be released for the rest of you here and the new site on April 13th, 2022… see you there… Be sure to follow the blog so you don’t miss it…

Welcome to 2022, Happy New Year

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. Welcome to a new year, hopefully this one goes better than last year (laughs nervously). There were a lot of ups and downs in 2021, and a lot of things that kept me super busy.

Who really knows what the future holds? Other than we’re going to try to start off the year strong, it’s anybody’s guess. We’ve got games to play planned for the stream, and Ruka has more “arts-and-farts” to show off. Expect another one of her photography posts later this week. That should be fun.

More anime and gaming reviews are incoming. I haven’t had the time to sit down and really work on them given the holiday season, and the fact that I’ve been fighting off a case of strep throat… yeah, that’s been fun… I am a homing device for that bug, I swear…

Also, expect a few more introspective type posts in the near future. I’m feeling a bit reminiscent recently. It happens in the early months of a new year. I find myself just sitting and reflecting a lot about my life and where I might like it to go… it’s a funny thing, really… always full of surprises.

One thing that I think I want to go back to doing is the occasional solo late-night streams. I don’t know, I’m still thinking about it, but I might do that again, if you have an opinion on that, let me know.

In any case, strap in tight, the year has just begun… I hope it’ll be a good one.

This has been Kernook of The Demented Ferrets, where stupidity is at its finest, and level grinds are par for the course. See you next time. Until then, check out some other great content below.

TDF Update: We’re Affiliates!

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. I’ve got some cool news, we’re now affiliates on Twitch! Yeah, pretty cool, it took a while, but we’re slowly growing.

It’s been a weird year, all things considered. Between my mother’s health problems, and taking that long several month break, we weren’t sure we’d hit that point so soon. We’re there, and it’s kind of like a breath of fresh air. It’s one of those “wow, we’re really doing this” moments where it feels… well, not so much a “milestone” but more like it’s another little step in the grand scheme….

It’s like life is really starting to look up now that my mother is doing a little bit better and we’re now affiliates on top of it. If you haven’t been checking us out over on Twitch, you really should. If you like to hang out, watch gamers, and just have an all around good time you’ll probably have a good time over there.

We’re finishing out Dream Daddy on Thursday, November 4th (today at the time of this post). Come stop by if you want to see us make a mess of that for sure. It’s a goofy little dating simulation, but we’re having fun with it.

So, What Are We All Up To?

Well, you know me, Kern, your friendly neighborhood ferret that breaks things and messes everything up so that Kresh needs to fix it. That’s the same old thing of course. I’m still breaking things, sometimes on a daily basis. I think I’ve re-written this post twice now, trying to find the right words. We’re still streaming over on twitch, of course, and I’m still writing blog posts.

YouTube stands as a weird middle ground, both as a video archive and a place where some of our reviews and other content can be found. Usually I cross embed those bits of footage here too, in the form of let’s plays and what-not, and that goes unchanged. Kresh is working on a project, but I don’t know when that’ll be finished.

It’s funny when I look back to this old image, one of Ruka’s earliest pieces of artwork, I’m a bit nostalgic. It’s been about a year since we started this whole idea. It’s been a learning experience, that’s for sure.

I was supposed to be the ferret tied up and laughing, Kresh the one looking grumpy, and Ruka’s early avatar was that skull and crossbones sitting on the television in the background. We’re all a little rough around the edges, much like that drawing itself is a rough conception of our personalities distilled down into one cartoon drawing.

We’ve come a long way since then. I’m not entirely sure what the future holds, but it seems like a bright one. One of the important things that’s so key to who we are as people is the concept of our diversity. We have an American person, a British person, and a person hailing for Puerto Rico. We’re all on the GLBTQ spectrum, or as Kern (me) would rather call it, GRSM… which is why we’re all so gender ambiguous on the streams and here on the blog. We don’t “sound” as we identify, so it’s just easier for all of us that way. That and gender isn’t everything, we’re more than that, of course.

We do believe representation is important though, and with that, don’t forget to check out Ruka’s blogs when she posts them up.

If you see this icon, that’s Ruka’s avatar over here on The Demented Ferrets. Ruka is writing blog posts now, so if you haven’s seen the first post you really should check it out. Especially if Spanish dubs are important to you.

Anime and Its Translations

Do I believe the Spanish dubs are worth it? Absolutely! Spanish is one of the most spoken languages ranking 4th worldwide and 2nd in Native-speaking countries in the world.

Ruka has been our artist since the start, but the completely unique perspective on anime and gaming that Ruka brings to the table can’t be understated. The blog post above about Spanish dubs is a great example of that. I (Kern) don’t speak Spanish very well (as in I completely butcher the language when I try to speak it/read it) so having Ruka add in those two cents really matters. Usually when we think of anime dubs here in the states, Spanish speaking dubs just aren’t often discussed… or at least, I don’t often hear them discussed at length.

Fun fact, Ruka’s planning to come up for a visit here sometime in the new year, and that’ll be a lot of fun. We’ll probably have some cool footage of that eventually whenever it happens.

Well, that about does it for this post. It’s just a small update. I’ll see you around next time. Ruka’s working on her next blog post, and so am I. Hopefully, we’ll see you there.

Written Content Going Forward

Hey everyone, here’s a cat photo. That’s Sabin, Kernook’s cat. Got your kitty fix? Good!

It’s time to discuss content you’re going to see on this blog.

I have a lot of information to go over so let’s just jump right into it, shall we?


The Future of the Blog

In truth, in order of priority our Twitch and YouTube channels will be taking center stage. That isn’t to say you won’t find a wealth of content here, because I assure you, you certainly will. There will be blog posts 3 days a week, every week so long as it is feasible to do so.

The blog will update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with written content.

Now, some of you may know that we had a free blog with the “.wordpress.com” before this blog came into fruition. That blog was messy and ill-planned, but we needed something. Now, before that blog was repurposed for the sake of ” The Demented Ferrets“, it belonged to me. It was my personal blog for anime and gaming content.

Kreshenne and I needed to change that.

That’s why this blog sits here now. My content needed a fundamental overhaul. This is just an overall better layout, and much more carefully thought out. As you can see, that nasty little mess of a web address has been replaced with a far more fitting one.

Therefore, here we go a nice new clean slate. Content across our platforms will be broken up into several different categories. What you can expect to find in each one will be a little different. You can find out more here.


Regarding Old Content

Old content will be slowly cleaned up and brought over from the other blog. When it is an old post refreshed and fixed up, you’re going to see this disclaimer at the top of the post:

“Note: This was an old post on the original “The Demented Ferrets” site, and prior to that it belonged to my personal blog. It is being placed here because this is now where it belongs.”

This is for the sake of transparency, so that you know what posts were originally written back in 2019 and 2020. If new content has been added, I’ll be sure to also clarify that in the note.

Final Thoughts

I think that’s about all I have to say for now. Hopefully with all of the links provided you’ll find content to your liking. In tomorrow’s post I’m going to detail the types of written content you’re going to see on this blog going forward. I hope to see you there.

Please don’t forget to subscribe to the blog and our other platforms. Have any questions or comments? Be sure to leave them below.

Remember, you can help us by sharing this post with your friends and family too. If you know someone who likes anime and gaming content, be sure to share this with them. Thanks, and with that I’ll leave it off here.
