Socrates was famous for knowing that he knew nothing. Since I'm just some guy on the internet surely I know even less.

I believe the most important thing anyone needs to know about me here is that my interests are sporadic. I'm quite whimsical, and I jump from one thing to another without making connections between. In other words, I will often begin writing things without any clear purpose, and I tend to drop projects faster than I drop crumbs at the dinner table.

I don't claim to be a good writer and I have long given up claiming that I will finish anything I start any time soon. Lower your expectations of me, or you will likely be disappointed.

At the end of the day, I'm just here to have a bit of fun throwing out ideas.

Ripples of a Girl reviews
"I never really believed in Santa Clause, which in retrospect is a bit of a pity. Instead I believed in aliens, time travellers and ESPers. I suppose I should have been more like her. Now... I can never go back." - Kyon. A complete reimagining of the Suzumiya Haruhi series, where a change worth of one girl on that one Tanabata that particular year is worth a universe of difference.
