My self-summary
First, I'm not looking for anything except maybe random people to talk to at strange hours. I have a significant other. I am here for the quizzes. Get it? Got it? Good.

I'm actively involved in a bunch of fandoms, primarily MCU, Good Omens, and due South. I like reading, roleplaying, and medieval weaponry. I think that Terry Pratchett and Monty Python are hilarious. See below for more thorough explanations.

Things that irritate me: Prejudice, people who are rude or cruel for "fun", profanity/vulgarity, the color pink and other overly fluffy "feminine" accoutrements, too-macho posturing, people abusing other people (physically, psychologically, or verbally), animals, their environment, and/or books, alcohol, drug, or tobacco use. Whee.

The value of freedom, like air, is best recognized in its absence. --Jim Semmelroth

I just finished up a BA in Humanities and Cultural Studies and a MLIS (Master's in Library and Information Studies). I work at a small public library and will give your children books and other media that make them think. Fear me.

I am bookwormish, obsessive, and easily amused.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a librarian. See above. I write fanfiction (often slash--m/m or f/f pairings) and original fiction and poetry. I am a member of the SCA ( I'm a heavy fighter in training.

The library didn't only contain magical books, the ones which are chained to the shelves and are very dangerous. It also contained perfectly ordinary books, printed on commonplace paper in mundane ink. It would be a mistake to think that they weren't also dangerous just because reading them didn't make fireworks go off in the sky. Reading them sometimes did the more dangerous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader's brain. --Terry Pratchett. Soul Music.
I’m really good at
Spelling, grammar, getting strange looks from normal people, reading, nitpicking, singing, declaiming... (If I think of anything else, I'll add it.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I dress oddly, especially when given an excuse like Hallowe'en. I am somewhat androgynous.

I am a geek and proud of the fact.

Queer. adj. Strange, unusual, odd.

Six things I could never do without
Books, music, trees, water, mountains, the people I love.

Secondary to these: My sword Scathach, my computer, notebooks and writing implements, my green blanket.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Completely random stuff. I had a long, detailed discussion with a friend once about the geological consequences of the earth being used as a pool ball.

Gender identification, sexual orientation, and feminism. Kindly do not attempt to use this as a chance to chat me up about sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, writing, sleeping, goofing off with friends, a movie, and/or lots of sugar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spend lot of my free time hanging out on a Star Trek RPG board. It rocks.
You should message me if
You want to: complain about the horrors perpetrated by the film industry when they get hold of good book, have a critique session about superhero comics (I love them, but they have issues), complain about my attitudes (I can always use a laugh--try and spell your rants correctly), inform me about new and interesting poisons and their effects.

If you don't have anything interesting to say, bugger off.
The two of us
