Well hello there, you dashing strangers you.
I'm V and I'm new here. I'm friends with Xeno, Ante Bellum, Daughter of Zion, and Davidizer13, and after a few months of lurking over their shoulders I've decided to join the party.
Sooo stuff about me...Um, I'm 20, I'm a ladything who likes ladystuff, feminist, nondenominational Christian, fairly liberal but don't have a set political leaning/ideology/etc. I'm sort of part punk, part hipster, part flapper, and all nerd. Basically imagine Hunter S. Thompson and Dorothy Parker had a baby and it was raised by Star Trek-loving circus freaks, and you have me in a nutshell. I don't watch a ton of anime, but I'm fond of Redline, Princess Tutu, Princess Jellyfish, Baccano! and the few episodes of Cowboy Beebop, Giant Robo, and LOGH that I've seen. I'm really into steam, cyber, and especially dieselpunk and am currently working on a neo-noir book I hope to finish by early spring. I also write sci-fi, mystery, comedy, horror, and and the occasional dark fantasy. I'm a very minor league slam poet in Minneapolis and am trying to build more of a following, so if you know of anywhere looking for acts let me know! I recently started drafting a series of comic books, which is going very very slowly indeed as I cannot actually draw (I know, I'm so great at plans, my logic is just impeccable). So yeah, lot of fingers in a lot of pies, which I like. Keeps life interesting.
When I'm not writing, I'm usually...reading or watching old movies, because I am a very exciting person. I like noir and horror films and grew up with only TCM and PBS to watch, so I can give you a great list of films to watch. Don't watch them with me, though, since I'm an amateur film critic and I do not shut up.
Even if I like it. Especially
if I don't. You have been warned. Book-wise I read pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a serious serious poetry crush on Dante, I think Victor Hugo can do no wrong, and James Crumley makes me want to quit existence because I WILL NEVER BE THAT TALENTED ARRRRGH *sobs* I read some comics (Deadpool, X-Men, Ultimate Spiderman, Sandman, Fable), play some vidya gamez (Bioshock, Assassin's Creed, Borderlands mostly), and sometimes mooch off my extrovert boyfriend's social skills when I must leave the comfort of my laptop and bookshelf.
So yeah, that's me for ya. Pleasure to meet you all. *curtsies, exits stage right*
