>_> I'm an aspiring writer with a folder full of OC's and stories that I cannot properly illustrate. Do want to seek out a collaboration one day, which is part of the reason why I'm here. Likely my first project collaboration will be for a childrens book.
For now though, the main things to know about me are:
1.) I consider diversity to be a sign of The Presence of The DIVINE. An appreciation of all cultures is held very close to my heart. But my people I hold to be especially AWESOME.
2.) I am a Christian, kinda'. But my ideas about it are VERY unusual. I reject purity culture and the gender binary as being systems that can help us to navigate/understand our world and others. I realize that the bible has been written and re-written according to various political agendas throughout time (and therefore I do not take it in a literal sense). I'm not a part of any particular church, nor am I the kind to hit people over the head or believe that I am some kind of exclusive conduit to the LORD...I just acknowledge that there is a beneficent Creator power which is far higher than I, that, for whatever reason, is keeping an eye out for me....and I'm grateful. Therefore, I don't care what your creed/lack-of-creed is. Relax. We can chill.
3.) I love sheep and cats. n0n
4.) Vices include: The Ocean, Anime, Gaming, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Coffee, Chocolate, Music and Alcohol. The last one in moderation. xD
5.) I am Hetero/Relatively Cisgendered.
6.) I have a particular pet peeve. Despite my mixed (Nigerian, Native American, Scottish, Puerto Rican) ancestry, I have natural Black hair. A BIG afro that I love. As a result, many of my OC's have natural hair also. I am dead tired of people coming up to me or commenting on them, saying, 'Oh wow, nice 'disco/seventies/blaxploitation' feel to this character.'
. . . . what the crap? o_O If you have naturally straight hair, I don't come up to you and say, 'Oh, great job rockin' the 'Viking' look.' xD
My hair is my hair, your hair is your hair. They are BOTH timeless and NOT necessarily indicative of some temporary fashion trend. Kindly don't try to pigeon-hole me or my works into it.
That is all.
