Let's start with some basics qualifiers, shall we? I'm poly, kinky, and pansexual. Attempts to convert me will get you smacked. I've been asked what people have tried to convert me to. Like, say, the metric system? No, silly. That would be lovely. The metric system is so straight forward! It's the attempts to mold me into something that fits into pretty little predefined boxes that will end in some type of violence. Let's not start off that way. We just met, after all.
I am part of a very happy and ridiculously busy poly household. If you have questions about that, feel free to ask. If it takes me a bit to get back to you, see the above note that says "ridiculously busy." We function at an extremely high level of communication and honesty. It's how I'm used to interacting. People who don't often get odd stares from me, as if they have suddenly sprouted a second head or have turned a brilliant color of chartreuse. I don't mean to be rude, I just get confused. Say what you mean and mean what you say. It really is pretty straight forward.
I am creative, logical, and intense. It's the intense part that tends to trip people up. My emotional range is extreme, but is coated in this thick sheen of rationality. I am obnoxiously self aware. Ask me how I am when you actually have time for the answer, not as a pleasantry. Most of the time, I tend not to share things about myself until asked, but will share fairly openly once invited to. Occasionally, I overshare in a major way and then have to watch the expressions of amusement or horror on the other person's face. At least you can learn a lot about a person that way.
I am the mother of an amazing, brilliant, and challenging child who takes up a great deal of my time and attention.
I love things that are beautiful. My definition of beauty is far reaching and fluid. It probably won't match yours. I'm really okay with that.
I have a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology. For reasons beyond my understanding, this somehow makes me a more interesting human being. People tend to want to ask me all kinds of questions about this so, yeah, go ahead. I know, you can't help it. It's really okay.
I have been known to play Portal and Portal II. I own my very own near life size companion cube. No, you can't have it, it's mine. I'm currently playing GW2, Aion, and my child loves it when I play Spiral Knights. I've played D&D and Shadowrun on and off for years, dabbled in World of Darkness, and am now playing in a 7th Sea game. I own multiple sets of dice in pretty, sparkly colors. I am told these things make me a gamer girl. Call me what you like. I don't actually have a high value for labels.
I have piercings, an extensive amount of visible tattoos, and tend to dye my naturally red hair a variety of colors ranging from bright red to bubblegum pink. If that's not your style, no worries, but I'm probably not your girl.
Honest communication is essential for me. I do not respond well to being lied to, I don't play games with people's minds or emotions, and I have little patience for people who present themselves as something they are not. Actually, I am generally an impatient person when it comes to things that annoy me.
