My self-summary
Young dark fantasy novelist... Who also likes to work in visual arts, indie video games and movies. And maybe other medias? Who knows?

Always dressed in black, the Raphy is cursed by the gift of vividly growing curly hair, limitless thirst for life's various pleasures and terrible myopia!

~~~~~~~~~

Into all kinds of progressive causes, including but not limited to LGBTQIA+ fights, feminism, antiracism, anticapitalism, ecology, animal rights...
If you have something against it, and particularly if you are essentialist, feel free to NOT message me, I have no particular taste for misinformed "biotruths", mundane sexism and straightsplaining.

~~~~~~~~~

AMAB, non-binary. Preferred pronouns: they in English, elle en français. "Elle" being here an indication of neutrality, neutral gender doesn't have to be masculine in French (see the history of the language) and I despise "masculine neutral" and "masculine plural".

~~~~~~~~~

Always happy to learn as much as I can in every domain. Generally trying to "think out of the box". We are all products of the culture we are raised in, and we'll stay that way, but it's good to get as far away as possible from ethnocentrist universalism and Western contempt.

Out with my friends, or at a party.
