HELLO: I'm 23 now. I'm off trying to make a life for myself and being a bit of a vagabond, hopping job to job and state to state - living the theatre kid life. Except as an adult. You can usually locate me either with a book, with friends, or somewhere where coffee is readily available. I love writing, but go through frequent dry spells. I tend to stay out of posting fan fiction writing, but do enjoy reading it whenever the fancy strikes me. And writing it where it will never see the light of day.

BIG FAN OF: Mythology, the fantastical, stories that start out slow but then suck you in, compelling relationships, wordsmiths, beautifully clear imagery, and I especially appreciate authors who can make mediocre source material absolutely wonderful.

NOW: So, for now, I visit old fics when they are updated, occasionally spend days off reading all sorts of fan fiction, and generally enjoy the company of fellow nerds.

Well that's all for now!
