Céad míle fáilte romhat!
A million welcomes to my little page. Thank you for taking the time to read my yarns as well. I hope you find them most entertaining.

As you can tell below, my preferred fandom is Final Fantasy VIII. I think the mechanics of that game are incredible and the world it created never ceases to inspire me.

I'm also a hopeless romantic, though I'd never admit it in my public life. And I can't stand an unhappy ending for too long. So if you're looking for tragedy and foreboding angst, you won't find them here. But if you're looking for a little action, a little drama, and a little catharsis I hope I do not disappoint!

If you feel like a chat, don't hesitate to email/message me. I'm always up for a little conversation.

Sláinte!
