I AM TRANSGENDER.
So when you message me, telling me how interesting I am and how I should message you back, and I browse through your questions and under 'things I find important' I see "Would you date a transgender person? NO" it means that you should probably look elsewhere.
Okay, PSA over.
Everything below this needs to be updated pretty badly. Reactivating this so I can meet more people to hang out and chat with.
I love video games, film, and animation. I spend most of my income dressing up in costumes and going to conventions. Looking for friends to chat about nerdy things.
I've also been getting a lot of compliments on my hair lately. I haven't really had a haircut lately, but whatever I'm doing with it must be working. =)
*Puella Magi Madoka Magica
*Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan
I also love RPGs (Mostly western: Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fallout 1&2), strategy games (From Command & Conquer to Civilization and Total War), and shooters.
I love movies and cinema. While I have a huge list of classics and favorites (I will never NOT be in awe at the first sighting of a Dinosaur in Jurassic Park), I really like films with a bittersweet ending and a realstic style to them. The Pacific, Generation Kill, District 9, and Lost in Translation are a few favorites that I've rewatched multiple times.
I love animated films, both western and east asian. Disney, Don Bluth, CGI, anime.
Bookwise, my favorite fictional books are Starship Troopers, Catch-22, and All Quiet on the Western Front. I also love biographies.
I love stories that are shades of gray, not black and white.
Music wise, I tend to like soundtracks or songs I can put a visual image to. I also like songs that juxtapose something harsher (such as rap) with something calmer (such as piano music).
Outlet for crativity - I've realized that if I can't create something, whether it's writing, drawing, photography, costumes, etc. I slowly go stir crazy.
Hmm....I'll try to think of something else, but I've lived without anything else before and survived. =)
If I ever seem superficial, not wanting to talk to in depth about politics, wanting to just enjoy hanging out at home or plan for a convention instead of worrying about what else is going on in the world, this is why. I feel I've earned a respite from fretting about bigger things and want to simply sit back and enjoy the little things in life.
Also, now that I've written about everything else, I'll mention that I'm transgender. You know how I talked about people losing sight of who you are? It happens all the time with being transgender. Being trans is a part of me, and I accept and am relatively open about it. But I don't generally bring it up because I want people to see the me that loves animals, makes movies, dresses up and goes to con, and laughs at stupid puns.
If either of these two admissions are things you are fixated on, then this probably won't work out.
Are an optimist.
Go to sci-fi/fantasy/comic/anime conventions.
Cosplay or make props.
Want to chat about anime or movies while playing video games.
