"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." -- Ray Bradbury
ANON DAYS ARE OVER: I'm a 24 year old woman. I have a fat Siamese cat, big red hair, and I live in a grim part of a tough American city. I believe everyone should have the power of self-determination and enjoy a true equality of rights. I have a lot of other moral platitudes I think are more interesting than they are, which comes with being a Brujah in a suit. I have published some short stories but I am not anybody you've heard about. I am hot-tempered. I want to help. I am an alto. I wear combat boots and tight dresses and being female shouldn't be the problem that it is. I'm afraid to write romance, but there is a lot of gender modeling, acting and mockery in my writing. There is also a lot of violence. I identify the most intimately with characters I deplore (Abigail Williams, Randle McMurphy, Lilly Caul, Orwell's Julia, Nines Rodriguez, Pamuk's Ka) and that freaks the hell out of me. The best thing is when these characters cry. I'm probably sweating that you secretly hate me; it's not your fault. I do not want special treatment. I think people are usually cruel but that they don't have to be. I hate writing in first-person like this because there's too much 'I.'
And no joke: I'm a lot friendlier and a lot less serious than anything I've posted makes it seem. If you want chat, help or a review, you can whack me a message any time.
THANK YOU to everyone who has offered feedback, commentary, observations, criticisms and other forms of aid on my works. This makes me a better writer and a better artist overall. Your encouragement and input are always and deeply appreciated.
Except for the increasingly frequent backhanded compliments regarding female writers, and how they "usually" tend to be. I don't know why all this crawled out of the woodwork recently, but if this is you, I got news: your surprise is misogynistic. When you derogate how you think "women" write to make a comparison, you are insulting ME to compliment my work. This is not a compliment. This is arrogant, sexist, hurtful and patronizing. If you have been entertained by my writing, do not disrespect it, or its author, by disparaging those who are like me.
Delays: I'm doing an MFA, and for some reason they've decided to let me teach fiction undergrads, so things fanfic are lamentably on the back-burner. I'll post when I can. Stories fall in-and-out of cryo until good ideas hit; it's not the way I want it, but it's how my brain works.

1. Byzantine Black [Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines] -- COMPLETE (Now working on version 1.3. This is a line-by-line edit... so, of course, it is a huge and agonizing undertaking. Strengthening voices and trimming fat. Some new stuff added. Some stupid stuff removed.)
So I'm writing Lumen Event about as fast as a snail with a full stomach. I have no excuse, but I do have a small appeasement hint. You'll find not all, but at least one LE pairing sittin' pretty in this patch of randomly matched up names: Mercurio & Samantha. Mercurio & Annette. Christie & Woeburne. Annette & Samantha. Mercurio & Woeburne. Deacon & Isaiah. Lusa & Ash. Ash & Romero. Woeburne & Rodriguez. Woeburne & Mark. Christie & Rodriguez. Velvet & Lusa.
Who the hell is Lusa.
