I write fiction and essays, sing (just moved and looking for a new choir), and do graphic design. I also collect Japanese art, play tabletop RPGs, read comics and manga, and love science and history. I have several pet rats, an aquarium, and more than one blog. I use a wheelchair or crutches to get around, and live with my best friend in a big house and several pets.

Outgoing enough to meet me half-way
