I'm sure Masto will be great for Tumblr exiles, but can I also recommend Dreamwidth? https://www.dreamwidth.org/legal/principles
It's seriously great, actually follows its principles, has always had fannish and lewd communities, can do longer-form things, has a way better comment system then Tumblr, and isn't going to be bought out by a big corporation.
@hollyamory Dreamwidth is a good option for those of you who were also from the livejournal era. It functions pretty much identically.
I will say to be careful about some of the communities there. I've encountered some pretty toxic ones, so definitely feel it out and, then join if you think it'll be a good fit.
