Hiya! My name is Cait. I'm from a small, unimportant town in a slightly larger, still unimportant state. I am the tattooed, pierced, former Division 1 Big Ten athlete, nerd graduate student your grandmother would have warned you about had she known I exsisted. My philosophy: "Everything good in life is either illegal, immoral, or fattening". I attended the University of Iowa as an undergrad and was on the Rowing Team. Now I am attending graduate school, working on my PhD in Early American History.
I have two tumblr blogs, one is my personal ramblings and rebloggings - it's at trivialqueen(.)tumblr(.)com, the other is for the occasional snip of a story or pictures of the fanfiction kind, it's at parrottgal(.)tumblr(.)com. I am more than excited to talk to people about just about anything, but especially fandom stuff. Never hesitate to drop me a line.
A note about my stories: Many of my stories are actually collections of one shots based around characters, pairings, and a short prompt (typically one or two words). If you have a suggestion for any of these pieces - be it a pairing, character, prompt, or all of the above, please feel free to PM me. I really like talking to people.
