My self-summary
I'm me. I am. I hope I am. I hope I hope. I know I am but I don't know for certain that the am that I am has the ability to truly comprehend whether I am, what I am, how I am and what precisely it means to be "am".

I absolutely love computer games, and i hope to join the industry as a reviewer and/or writer. I enjoy most genres but have a particular soft spot for classic point and click adventures.

I'm also a fan of tabletop roleplaying games such as the White Wolf systems, AD&D and pretty much anything else I can get my grubby hands on.

I love to read, especially the works of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I also read graphic novels and comics and especially love Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis and the work of Alan Moore. In terms of DC versus Marvel I tend to lean towards Marvel, but both have excellent titles and ones that are, of course, utter crap. I'm also rather addicted to the webcomic Homestuck.

In a story from any form of media I tend to greatly enjoy one with a distinctive setting. There are so many genres and sub-genres that there's plenty to pick from... and when it feels like we're running out we can just splice two together to create something not-quite-new! Alternate History always grabs my attention along with the obvious Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror (often with the word "Comic" properly welded to the front of their name) and their extended fantastical family tree including, but not limited to: Hard Sci-Fi, Soft Sci-Fi, Non-Newtonian Fluidic Sci-Fi, Post-Apocalyptic, Superheroic, Space Opera, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Sparkpunk, Clockpunk, Biopunk, Stonepunk, Necropunk, Gothic-Punk, Lovecraftian, Gothic-Horror, Survival Horror, Weird-West, Fairytales, High Fantasy, Low Fantasy, Yo-Yo Fantasy, Urban Fantasy and, to summarise; general speculative fiction.

...I may have made a few of those up.

Attempted Writing.
Working in a shop.
Looking after an Eldritch Monstrosity From Beyond The Shrieking Nightmares Of Mortal Man disguised as a cat.
I’m really good at
Nothing... jack of all trades, master of none. I enjoy writing.
I think I may be good at rambling on, especially about unrealistic, surreal scenarios... like me actually getting a job I enjoy!
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure. I'm not in their heads.
Possibly my long hair.
If the observer is drunk then there's occasionally some ambiguity in their eyes concerning my gender.

1) My Mind
2) My Friends
3) Books
4) Humour

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Creating Things and how absolutely awful whatever I'm currently trying to create is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing computer games, roleplaying, or at the pub playing card games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you pull the zip at the base of my spine you will reveal a squad of demented goblinoids piloting a clockwork contraption.
You should message me if
You want to know me.
