Who, me?

I'm a recent college graduate who currently works as a technician in a newly started cancer research lab. There's literally three of us so I'm basically lab manager as well. I work ALL THE TIME and while it's super engaging I don't have much time for anything else.

I love me some fanfiction the way bronies love tumblr. Love the talent among the writers here as well as all the ridiculous s* that goes on. Harry Potter fandom is my thing - it's just like Arthurian legend, the way it lends itself to derivation (that endless cast of wacky characters - how could you NOT play with them???)

I like:

Books, 'specially fantasy. Storytellers I admire: Tolkien, A.S. Byatt, Nabokov, Ursula K. Le Guin, Jonathon Stroud, Susanna Clarke, Anthony Doerr, Dan Choan, Hayao Miyazaki, Joe Hisaishi, Marilynne Robinson, Green Gecko (Jonathan Strange, Housekeeping, The Caretaker, The Thing in the Forest, Brighter Morning - anyone?)

Animation. I'm a rabid Ghibli fan. Otherwise, I lean towards the post-apocalyptic sci fi genre when it comes to anime (Evangelion, Eureka 7, giant robots and environmental themes etc.). Oh - LOVED Shinsekai Yori and Mushishi. Not to mention Paprika. Inuyasha and Sailor Moon were my childhood soulfoods. (Speaking of childhood shows that will always hold overwhelming nostalgia power over you - Escaflowne, Dark Angel, Xena the Warrior Princess - anybody??).

I absoeffinglutely love Pixar. The Toy Story series gives me so many feelings. As far as Disney goes, Treasure Planet and Atlantis are my ish- the new stuff with Pixar? Eh - I liked Pixar better when they were independent, and I think Disney classics are way better then Frozen...although Tangled was very cute. Cartoon Network is AWESOME - Over the Garden Wall? STEVEN UNIVERSE??? Best. Oh, and props to Disney for Gravity Falls - such a cute show!

Music. I like "indie" whatever the hell that means. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Jose Gonzalez, Alt-J, MsMr, Breton, London Grammar, Local Natives, and Glass Animals. I'm pretty eclectic though - Goo goo dolls, Linkin Park, Enya, Ray Charles, Joe Hisaishi, and Florence and the Machine have been favorites of mine at different stages of my life. The music I listen to really depends on what I'm doing.

Art. But I don't do much of it. I used to consider myself an artist first and a writer second, but mostly I'm just a lazy bum now.

What's new with me: my bf's getting me into gaming, and I just finished Life is Strange and Undertale. SO MUCH EFFING DETERMINATION. And trauma. I'm a sucker for Telltale walkthroughs. Just started season 1 of Orange is the New Black, very obsessed. Guilty pleasure: Once Upon A Time. Um...just got Spotify premium. BEST DECISION EVER.

Top fics: GreenGecko's three-part Resonance series and "Brighter Morning", Laventadorn's "Come Once Again and Love Me", and Diadelphous' "A Dream Carved in Stone". Oh, and textualsphinx's "To Sever the Lining from a Cloud", just because I found the piece so singular. And yeah, you guessed it: I love Snape. Lovelovelovelove Snape. Finding the Potions and Snitches website felt like Christmas.

The Lost Toy Problem by Aunty-Diluvian reviews
Toriel had finally finished her project, but there was one small hitch. You only wanted to help, but now rumor has it you had other motives. It doesn't help that Sans is back and he's not helping you put those rumors to rest. Which are unfounded, of course. You would never-and even if he DID-Well, it's useless to argue with monsters who have already made up their minds. M for smuts
