Courtesy note to the gentlemen out there: I am bisexual but I'm not interested in a 1x1 relationship with another man right now. Sorry!
We good? Good. I'm an otaku and a gamer before anything else; anime and gaming (video and tabletop) are a pretty big part of my life. I also identify as a feminist and try to stay abreast of civil rights and socio-cultural issues. I heavily lean towards progressivism with a healthy belief in personal freedoms. No, I don't hate republicans or conservatives (there's a difference). What I hate are hypocrites and people who force their own ideology onto others.
I also like SCIENCE!
Knowing exactly where I'm going, thinking I'm lost halfway there, and then ending up at my destination ahead of schedule.
Ugh you want examples, don't you? Ok fine, but understand that this is far from comprehensive by any parameter. This is more like the greatest hits version; just because your favourite song isn't here doesn't mean it's not on the album. And if I haven't seen it, read it, or heard it, I'm probably interested.
FOOD: I like food that is delicious. I discovered indian food a while back and it's great! I have yet to try any real french food and I'm not sure where to go to remedy this. I love food and am always open to trying new things, as long as there are no mushrooms (gross) or strawberries (allergic). Sorry, strawberry fans!
MUSIC: My favourite bands include (but are not limited to): SURFACE (a Japanese band that's sorta like a cross between jazz, rock, and pop), Hitomi Yaida (another Japanese artist whose fans coined the term "heart rock" to describe her), and The Protomen. (If you're a Protomen (or SURFACE) fan, please let me know!) I also have a Hatsune Miku tattoo; the reasons for which are difficult to express. Suffice to say, if you're a Miku fan, we should definitely talk.
ADDITIONAL MUSIC: I also enjoy a lot of more mainstream non-Japanese music. Really, I like everything. If it has a good melody (looking at you dubstep), doesn't sound like random noise (grindcore/screamo), and isn't about complete bullshit (crunk), I probably enjoy at least a few entries in the genre (yes, even country). That said, my favourite genres typically include: Jazz (everything from quartet and big band down to smooth jazz/Kenny G type stuff), uptempo modern rock/punk (think Paramore), epic/fantasy metal (Blind Guardian's "Nightfall in Middle-Earth" will rock your fucking face off), and rap/hip hop with more lyrical/musical quality (Jay-Z, select Kanye/Eminem tracks, etc). Lorde and Lady Gaga, while really freaking weird, both have a special place in my heart.
GAMES: I play a lot of video games! My favourite games include the Shin Megami Tensei franchise (especially Persona 3 and 4.) I also like a lot of other RPGs, but really I'll play anything. Recently playing Valkyria Chronicles and Ni no Kuni, though League of Legends and Persona 4 Arena are always in the back of my mind somewhere.
TELEVISION: TV shows like Buffy, Firefly, and Sherlock are obvious choices. Don't watch too much live action, though. Really, I'm an otaku (this is an oversimplification, but basically someone who's REALLY into anime) before anything else, which is something this profile is particularly bad at expressing. It's basically The Best. There's nothing quite as nice as snuggling up with someone and watching a whole mess 'o annie may. I also like TV and web cartoons like Adventure Time, Bravest Warriors, and Bee and Puppycat. The Mighty Bee is also fantastic, but only like four people in the universe have ever heard of it, which is unfortunate.
MOVIES: I like all sorts of movies, but don't watch a ton of them. My all time favourite movie is Princess Mononoke. By far. Like, really. I'm serious. If you've never seen it, tell me. If I have to I'll drop everything and come to you and we'll watch it together. I really like Star Wars, and the Marvel cinematic universe (my favourites are Iron Man 1, Avengers, and Winter Soldier).
BOOKS: Books are fantastic! I'm primarily into fantasy, but I'll read other stuff, too. I like Harry Potter and Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. I also like urban fantasy stuff (there's a special place in my heart for Kim Harrison novels). Additionally, I enjoy Jane Austin, and (unrelated) am currently reading Anne of Green Gables (which I am loving!).
Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
Game design. It's more complicated and nuanced than you might think.
Also: How to make this profile express myself more thoroughly. It's very good at expressing my interests and hobbies, which are important but are not the extent of who I am. How does one express creativity, verbosity, a love of thinking and discussing, yet somewhat introverted, with just a liiiiittle bit of crazy, while still putting across the practical information? WITHOUT turning this into a ten page dissertation? I mean, I guess it's too late for that last part. Hmm...
Also also: Why does OKC keep putting <60% match ratings in my "You might like" section?
Additionally: I'm transgender, but present as male with no plans to transition, and am super into the ladies. This means if you don't care, one way or the other, you can ignore it. If you're interested feel free to ask any questions; I'm totally willing to talk about it. My feelings on the matter are just a bit complicated and this profile is long enough as-is.
You can string two or more words together in a grammatically sound manner that contain more than three letters. Each.
No, seriously, don't be shy. If you think you'd like to talk or hang out or anything else, send me a message! Bonus points if you're interested in finding a real, meaningful relationship with another human or imitation human-like product.
So say we all.
