I am a proud dice-rolling Browncoat that knows Han shot first, an earth goddess and an organic intellectual.
I am in a wonderful open relationship with my primary Capt_Yossarian. I am pansexual, queer, and find brains more important than what's between the legs, if you catch my drift.
Geek - I am a table-top rpg writer, player and designer. This is my hobby, part-career, and favoured activity amongst friends. To sit down with a group of people you love, explore worlds they've created, laugh often, be scared when appropriate, and be able to become someone else, however briefly, is a joy. The expression of creativity taken to run a decent game is something I admire. I have no small love for creating worlds.
Nerd - Literary theory, political theory, gender and sexuality, philosophy, literature, and true crime are some topics I devote my reading time to. I do not study at an institution (anymore) but do take it upon myself to explore these realms of knowledge because I love them. Any person that can knowledgeably speak of these topics (or others they are fluent in) will automatically make me swoon.
Protester - I realize in the modern world, other than to other Political Activists, protester is often a dirty word. I'm not here to change anyone's opinions on that word. I am politically active. I go to rallies, I talk passionately about what I believe and strive to educate myself further on what more I can be doing. I'm very good at making perfectly nice people feel bad.
Individual - I am a fiercely independent person. While I have no problem being supportive and comforting to those I care for, I generally do not like dependent people. I will expect you to stand on your own two feet. I have powerful beliefs and passions, but that doesn't mean I won't listen to another view-point. Just be prepared for a debate. I believe in living your convictions, and I expect the people I care for to do the same.
Lover - While I do not have a large number of close friends, for those I do respect and cherish, I am fiercely loyal to. I will do anything for someone I care for, often without question, and will defend them to a fault. I love private conversations, whispered endearments, small gestures, secret glances, poems hidden in pockets, and moments of understood silence.
Gender...something. Yeah. I guess. I don't strictly believe i'm female, or male, but somewhere in between. That's fine, I'm told. But right now I'm exploring that and where that leaves me. Gender fluid? Maybe? I'm gendered. That's for sure. But boy, aren't we all.
Butterfly, Spider and Lynx - There are three animals that appear in my life. The butterfly, a person that appears in someone's life, however briefly, and tends to improve it. The spider, a weaver of webs, a teller of tales. The Lynx, with the uncanny ability to see into our souls, know hidden truths, and walk the veil between worlds. Take what you will from these meanings, but they all define facets of myself.
What I'm looking for: Conversation, ideas, thoughts, exchanged interpretations, a spark, a connection, something to light up in the dark. I have great friends, I could always use more.
Oh. I'm also looking for a dominant partner. Experienced, preferably. If this isn't you, that's okay too. I'm just saying, I'm looking for that too.

Just in case you didn't know what an organic intellectual was.
