I'm a socially-anxious creator, Pisces, and sorceress of darkness. Those are the most important things to know, right? But I'm also a cat AND dog person (see below for our household pets) with a penchant for making lists and never using them. My favorite sweet treat is homegrown strawberries mashed over vanilla ice cream. My familiar is a fox. I'm 99% introverted and naturally quiet. Conversations feel like pricking my fingers with thorns & hoping people don't notice I'm bleeding. I've lived in Michigan my whole life but I would dearly love to escape it at some point. But it would have to be in another northern state because I cannot deal with hot and/or humid weather. (Though I would miss fall in Michigan). History and travel are two of my passions and one day I want to marry them and satisfy all of my yearnings.

 

As for what this site and blog is for, I write about angry girls and quiet boys and moral ambiguity. I'm here for the messy and complicated and downright villainous. I'm queer/bi, so my casts are almost always all-on-the-spectrum. I want to publish a wide range of stories, not be boxed in. But fantasy has my heart. I love the books where I can fall into another world and never want to leave it.

Favorite Movies and TV Shows

  • the earlier seasons of The 100, when Bellarke was still a hopeful eventuality :(

  • THE OLD GUARD!!! I've seen it 6 times and plan to watch it again. I want all the sequels, a murder husbands prequel, and a prequel about Andy and Quynh. THANKS

  • The Haunting of Hill House, which I love rewatching with one of my best friends

  • Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit franchise

  • the Fast & Furious franchise

  • Witches of East End and Legend of the Seeker (which were shows that ended WAY too soon, imo)

  • Bob's Burgers and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are my go-to shows that make me laugh like no other except sometimes New Girl. But I also go through the Friends seasons every once in awhile. It's old and problematic as all hell, but I love it so much.

  • Schitt's Creek is also FANTASTIC and makes me cry a lot.

  • Favorite Disney/Pixar animated movies: Beauty and the Beast, Frozen I and II, Atlantis, Mulan, Moana, Treasure Planet, The Incredibles 1 and 2, Coco. Basically all of them?

  • Dreamworks specific: How to Train Your Dragon trilogy!!! *sobs*  also The Croods, Rise of the Guardians, and El Dorado

  • Not a movie or TV show, but Hamilton the musical.

  • Everyone should watch Unbelievable on Netflix. And Merritt Wever should win every award available.

  • other fave movies: Set It Up, Klaus, My Neighbor Totoro, Finding 'Ohana, and Spirited Away.

  • other fave shows: Julie and the Phantoms, Lovecraft Country, Russian Doll, Pose, Good Omens, and Sense8

  • "Classic" movies I adore (aka the ones I watched obsessively during middle and high school): Step Up, She's the Man, Mean Girls, Bring It On franchise but esp All or Nothing, The Mummy 1 & 2, and HSM.
