"For many introverts like David, adolescence is the great stumbling place, the dark and tangled thicket of low self-esteem and social unease. In middle school and high school, the main currency is vivacity and gregariousness; attributes like depth and sensitivity don't count for much. But many introverts succeed in composing life stories much like David's: our Charlie Brown moments are the price we have to pay to bang our drums happily through the decades." -- Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking


Formerly known as 'Ryuchu'.

BASIC INFORMATION

NAME: Feel free to choose anything; most people tend to default to Ryu, but let your imagination run wild if you wanna

AGE: Can no longer be considered a "teen" anything

I sometimes post stories that I don't like enough to bother posting here on my Tumblr under the tag "Ryu's Fanfiction" if you're fishing around for more of my stuff. But mostly, I simply spazz about video games and do the occasional translation. Just forewarning you.

PERSONAL RULES WHEN WRITING:

1. Respect your audience's intelligence

2. Write and think of a character as a person first rather than an archetype

3. Make every sentence significant
