Drinks/smokes: No thanks
Dislikes: Bigots, the ground when/just after it rains, bad health,
bad breath, unfathomable questions, fiction in real life, bananas
Likes: Genuinely nice people, watching dance, manga/anime (non-shoujo/non-seinen), (good) movies, junk food
(everyone thinks I look anorexic, but I'm really obese on the inside), music...
And of course,
Love reading and writing poetry/ stories. Like everyone else here...
Classics: The Brontes, Emily Dickinson, George Eliot, Oscar Wilde, E.M. Forster
Other: Toni Morrison, Poppy Z Brite, Sarah Waters, Kim Wilkins, Philip Pullman, Ian McEwan
Favourite fiction genres:
Horror, humor, (non-cliched) romance.
Stories on FP:
Darkness at Dawn- Finished (and being edited). Inspired by a decade-long unrequited infatuation/love (not really sure anymore). Much of the first chapter (except for the retaliatory witch-craft stuff) actually happened.
Dawn of the Soul- On hiatus. I guess writing this story is futile since the whole thing is practically summarized in the sequel.
