Hello, Dear Reader.
I love talking about gaming as an art form, and how dynamic, emergent narrative arises when people play together.
I'm something of an aesthetic/design formalist: I like to take apart things to find out why they are the way they are, why they work or don't work. I'm told this can get irritating to people around me. Forewarned.
If you like tvtropes.org, we'll get along pretty awesomely.
I'm both available and happily attached... Yeah, I'm one of those polyamourous dorks: I've got a breathtakingly wonderful female life partner (serafina_says) who is expanding her poly chops, and an intoxicating girlfriend (Myfreudianslit) who has an awesome poly constellation of her own. These loves are non-negotiable.
Things I'm not doing: unicorn-hunting, looking for partners for my partners (talk to them yourself if you want, they're awesome!), or otherwise trying to find anyone on here to "complete" our relationships.
If you want to make out with me, however, hi! ^_^
While I'd still consider myself a hobbyist, I'm getting fairly good at alt photography, and we've produced a few pretty successful glam/goth/fetish photo sets for friends.
