Hi. My name's Rumpleteasza. I like taking stories, tearing them up neatly, folding them into origami birds and chucking them out the window. This is called "fanfiction".
As for the basics: I am 28. I live in England. I have a BA in Philosophy and Classical Civilisation from Nottingham University (no, I do not know Robin Hood). I am at the postgraduate stage of training to become a psychotherapist, and can therefore see through your devious social constructions to the tortured woobie soul that undoubtedly lies beneath. I have a mother and a father (like most people), and a laughably tall brother called Julian who all my friends think is pretty. I also have a heartbreakingly wonderful partner who doesn't seem to mind the fact that I insist on cramming our bookshelves with "vintage, honest to god, theyr'e so chic" RPG game boxes.
I like things of delicious geekery such as fantasy and sci fi, shiny objects, my best friends, the word 'sprau?', putting things in ironic 'scarequotes', inappropriate pluralisation, Sean Bean, and suprise gifts of marmite. Due to many early teen influences such as Stewart Lee, gorgeous misanthropic bastard that he is, I am a cheap knockoff put-together job of many better personalities. My writing is influenced most heavily by Philip Pullman (mainly his Victorian Mystery series) and Mervyn Peake, ie Gormenghast. Obviously I can never hope to reach the hearbreaknig genius of these great people, but please feel free to lie outright on that front.
I've had this penname since I first logged onto the internet when I was twelve. It's probably not something I'd choose today, since let's face it, Andrew Lloyd Webber needs a serious kick up the jacksy, but this is how everyone knows me and so this is how it shall stay. If you ever want to know what I'm up to, try, although I'm not at home much these days. Feel free to leave comments, I like talking to randoms. If you want to add me as a friend, just add me. Sometimes request emails get deleted with the huge amount of crap I get in my inbox.
Things What I Also Like: Danwise. Stealing the foam off other people's pints. The word "winky" when said by Richard Herring. Mushrooms cooked in lots of butter. Danwise. Escher drawings. People who actually admit that they don't know what post-modernism means. Danwise. Koushiro Izumi. Red and yellow things. Danwise. Mogget. Silver birch trees. And Danwise.
