  • my visual content is mostly sfw but i will openly participate in discussion of nsfw topics.
  • my main fandom is books.
  • we might just get along if you are fond of fictional villains, dark themes in fiction, and The Far Side comics.
  • i'm on the older side for a fanperson but i've been a part of online fandoms since i was 11. if you are much younger than i am, please do not follow me if you'd be uncomfortable for any reason whatsoever. i'll softblock you if you're under 18.
  • for the most part, i'm non-judgemental of problematic fictional characters, ships, and situations as long as you acknowledge that they should not be romanticised or glorified and would not support abusive behaviour irl. I do have a few hard NOs, which i will not specify. ask if you need to know.

  • actually no I'll be in my corner with my e-reader with a bunch of candles opening up a portal to the dark dimension.
  • talking about slightly morbid things so on that note if I disappear from this world someone please burn all my doujinshi
  • is anyone rich and do you own a kiln
  • next time someone asks what I work as I'm going to do my best impression of a shifty person and whisper: I deal in other people's dreams
  • I'm so tired rn but idc I'm going to run from the arms of one fictional world into the warm embrace of another
