My self-summary
I am a fledgeling writer, student of philosophy and a dubious fencer. I am also unspeakably new to this. Happily, I think we are both fully aware of how strange "this" is. We are two characters in a seventies sci-fi novel. It's dystopian. Somehow, through tapping on our word-organs and examining the TeleDisplays our dark and sterile age has provided us with, we make contact across the electro-aether. Sadly, neither of us will turn out to be a mutant, or a telepath, or even an android, but we might find out we like the same band (or something) and then end up kissing. I never said this Sci-Fi novel would be a best seller.
What I’m doing with my life
dancing just to stave off the hunger

In actuality that was a pretty quote from a song I like. Presently, in my actual life, I study philosophy, swordfight, write, and think. It's that uneasy phase of life were you start to realise that all of those things you really want to do are winking at you invitingly while _all the things you are actually doing_ tug on your shirt and say "you, me, now". The mid to early twenties are terrifying and full of mixed metaphors.
I’m really good at
making cups of tea, putting words in the right order, martyred sincerity, being silly, (not) this.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm bloody thin.
