Twenty-something, from New England via an Ohio childhood; I live in Boston with my delightful housemates sandrylene and wickedtrue; I graduated a few years back from college in Boston, where I majored in Middle Eastern Studies and minored in comparative religion.

I like animals (especially cats), reading and writing (especially fantasy), martial arts, dabbling in random languages, going barefoot, semicolons, and overanalysis of fiction. I used to hang out at the Brunching UBB (now IKB), which a good number of you already know because that's how you met me. I RP as well, mostly at milliways_bar, where I play a cast of characters currently including (at various levels of activity) Lan Mandragoran, River Tam, Piotr Rasputin (Colossus), Trowa Barton, Honey (Haninozuka Mitsukuni) and Regan Tam, Edel/Uzura, and Riza Hawkeye. In the past, Alain Johns, Will Stanton, and Edmund Pevensie were also on this list.

Very occasionally I post my writing on here; it's usually fanfic, and mostly drabbles, but original stuff crops up now and then too. I make no promises. Concrit is always, always welcomed; I have a thick skin and a wide streak of perfectionism. (Obligatory disclaimer: unless the story is labelled as original fiction, it's fanfic. All the characters and the worlds I write fanfic about belong to their respective original authors, and not to me; I make no profit off them, and nor do I intend to.)

Once in a blue moon I post icons, too. If you want 'em, take 'em; if an icon is meant for a specific person, I'll say so. Credit me, please, in the keywords or whatever; commenting when you take any is nice, since I like knowing what's liked, but not necessary. If you want to modify any of mine -- add brushes, add text, do whatever -- feel free! Just mention that in the credit line or something. And if you feel like letting me know, I'd love to see.
