An'way, about me:

I'm a lolyer by trade. Fiction keeps my usually legalese writing ship-shape and a cherished hobby.

I'm a voracious writer, given the right inspiration.

I used to draw more than write. Writing leads to less carpal tunnel and more output, hence writing is now preferred.

I love Shizuru Hayashiya to bits. I imagine she has a seizure every time she tries to write anything remotely angsty. I take after her.

I'm a gamer.

I confine myself to f x f pairings. I don't mind het or m x m given a likable male lead. It logically follows that I like cats.

I love getting reviews, good or bad.

I hate proofreading but it's a necessary evil.

I'm a, to quote my good friend th1nm1nt, scintillating scribbler of sexy sister smut.
