@Crowley provided some really helpful documents about the character and the week here!
As mentioned, we're doing a *DIFFERENT* mascot image for this week! This one comes from @Crowley in celebration of International Week of the Deaf!
In this mascot image, Fuchsia is hanging out with her Deaf friend Larimar!
He's a bovine and uses they/them and he/him pronouns!
Fall Fuchsia will be back next week!
Tomorrow is the official first day of Autumn, and Fuschia is ready to play in the falling leaves and enjoy the changing colors of the year! This will be our primary mascot image for the rest of the season!
Thanks to @Feverdreamless for drawing this fantastic version of our mascot!
In 1 week, Beach city will be 1 year old! For the next couple weeks, our mascot will be celebrating their birthday! Thank you to @Critter for doing this version of our mascot!

I debated whether to put our new temporary mascot announcement behind a CW or not and decided against it for several reasons I could enumerate for folks that might want to know.
However, if you want a CWed version of our announcement of our celebration of Juneteeth here at beach city, perhaps to boost it, here you go!
Here's a link to the original announcement and image of our new mascot by https://twitter.com/plusVICE
If you’d like to do more and have the funds to do so, please consider donating to the various causes below:
And thanks to @violetSpark for suggesting this as our first mascot change!
Juneteenth is the celebration of the end of slavery in America. Unfortunately, slavery still exists in various forms today in the form of human trafficking, private prison system, and the systemic oppression of people of color within our society. Please join us for the next few days while we remember those who have suffered or lost their lives due to these systems.
Beach City is being worked on by a bunch of people. Be sure to tell them thanks sometimes!
