My self-summary
I'm a video game geek and a roller derby girl. Both of these things are pretty much a lifestyle.

I like bunnies, ice cream, sewing, staying up late, singing karaoke, taking walks at night, and ordinary things that come in pretty colors. I enjoy reading about both science fact and science fiction. I'm the kind of person who can get lost on Wikipedia or TV Tropes for hours. I dislike coffee, cell phones, and hot weather. I spend a lot of time just thinking, and I never have the problem of having nothing to do. I consider myself neutral good and INFP, if either of those things mean anything to you. My friends tell me I'm compassionate, funny, and insightful.

I would describe myself as poly-compatible; that is to say, although I don't personally maintain multiple simultaneous relationships, I don't require exclusive sexual and romantic access to the women I date. I'm not romantic, like, at all — If you're dating me, you'd basically be dating the woman in this video... but being more-or-less aromantic doesn't mean I don't value friendship in a partner. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Oh and by the way I saved your planet and your species and you're welcome.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally, 9 to 5 (that's 9 pm to 5 am, mind you), I run my own indie game development studio from my home. It's a small operation that hasn't picked up too much steam yet but I have high hopes for the coming years. We're working on a bit of an epic space opera right now.

You're next most likely to see me on the roller derby track striking fear into my opponents. As of last year I made it onto the international-level charter team which has been a super-exciting experience and forced me to step up my own game.

Also I do a bit of volunteering for a local nonprofit. Spreadsheets and stuff. Nothing glorious but it's a good fit for my skills, so that's where I try and help out.

I am, for the time being, migratory. Madison is where I make my home for most of the year, but I escape from the summer heat by scooting off to St. John's, Newfoundland. These days it's only for a month, I'd love to be there longer but that just doesn't work out with the other things going on in my life right now.
I’m really good at
Old school arcade games, making costumes, explaining technical things in layman's terms, making artistically fascinating juxtapositions, seeing in the dark, smashing into other girls on roller skates, keeping secrets, being patient, and finding my way around an unfamiliar town.
The first things people usually notice about me
First, they notice my brightly-colored hair (it tends to change every few months or so). It usually doesn't take them long to notice I'm a bit eccentric after that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Games I like: Ratchet & Clank series, classic Zelda, Final Fantasy X and Tactics, Pac-Man CEDX, Soul Calibur series, Dance Dance Revolution (and its clones), Civ series, Kirby Super Star, Chrono Trigger, Smash Bros. series, Saints Row, Chu Chu Rocket, Dust: an Elysian Tail, Jamestown, and a lot of the stuff from the Humble Bundles. Oooh, and HuniePop ;)

Books I like: Hitchhiker's Trilogy, Song of Ice and Fire, LOTR, Contact, Kingkiller Chronicle, Harry Potter, Gödel Escher Bach, Stormlight Archive, The Man Who Counted, Le Petit Prince.

Movies I like: Serenity, Scott Pilgrim, Lord of the Rings, Mulan, Contact, DOA, UHF, Star Wars episodes IV-VI, Better Off Dead, Crouching Tiger, D.E.B.S., Juno, Dark City, The Princess Bride.

TV shows I like: Firefly, Steven Universe, Gilmore Girls, 24, Buffy, Daily Show (and its offspring), Gummi Bears, Robot Chicken, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, Broad City, Warehouse 13.

Music I like: Rasputina, Halestorm, Lindsey Stirling, Apocalyptica, KT Tunstall, Nightwish, Leslie Hall, Lily Allen, Alanis Morisette, Queensrÿche, Weird Al, Little Boots

Comics I like: Strangers in Paradise, Lumberjanes, Squirrel Girl, Rat Queens, Buffy

Sports I like: Roller Derby, Volleyball, Skiing (downhill and cross-country); watching Hockey or anything Olympics (especially Winter)

Foods I like: Bacon, tacos, poutine, burgers with ridiculous toppings... don't judge. Indian, Thai, and Mediterranean food are also thumbs-up. And tea is yummy.
Six things I could never do without
Free time
A sketchbook or notebook to jot ideas down
Corrective lenses
Soft and cuddleable things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working, I'm either curling up with a new or classic video game or I've been pulled out of the house by my friends and am making a show at being social.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to have some extra bits. They've been gone for a long time now.
You should message me if
• You don't have a lot of preconceptions about the type of relationship you want to be in; you'd be just as content right now finding a friend-with-benefits–type relationship as you would be finding a forever/soul-mate/whatnot.
• You're the kind of person willing to make the first move (I'm kinda shy)
• You're comfortable dating someone who has a lot going on in her life and won't always be able to make you her number one priority
The two of us
