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.
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.
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.

Soft and cuddleable things
• 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
