- `Yes, that's it,' said the Hatter with a sigh: `it's always tea-time, and we've no time to wash the things between whiles.'- Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.We can imagine the impossible, provided we do not imagine it in perfect detail and all at once.- David Lewis, On the Plurality of Worlds.
About me:I tend to be somewhere in between Chaotic Neutral and Chaotic Good, but I constantly struggle to become less Chaotic and Better.
I like abstract discussions, not necessarily concerning reality.
I'm a slightly anti-social (though discussion-loving) Cloudcuckoolander with poor emotional intelligence and a few strange habits (like reading a book when walking through the street). Also, I like computers, and I think some of them like me.
Apart from being a Klutz, I'm a Bookworm. Once upon a time I was madly in love with Greek mythology but I also went through Tolkien phase and Arthurian phase; now I am slowly drifting towards Science Fiction, making mental notes while passing by Magic Realism, New Weird and speculative poetry. I also like reading RPG core books (much more than roleplaying itself) and other non-fiction, including philosophy, popular science and daily magazines. If it comes to fiction, I especially like to read about rebels, madmen, mathematicians, Middle Ages, religion, philosophy, and alternative realities of any kind.
I admire X Files, mainly due to the fascinating epistemological conflicts presented in it, and I am a huge Narnia fan. I obsessively learn dead languages and try to read literature written in them. I also like: stained glass, apples, worldbuilding, formal logic, Gothic architecture, and big wolf-like dogs. And green tea, of course.
I can (and like) be contacted by e-mail through firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you feel like vandalising, this is the place:
- Oh, you sound so much like me! I even went through the exact same phases of genre adoration, though I still retain a fondness for Greek (and Norse!) mythology, Tolkien, and King Arthur. And by the way, Cloudcuckoolanders who read while they're walking down the street ... ROCK. :D (So long as they don't die.)—JewelMaiden
- Hurray! My wall has been vandalised! I feel like I am officially accepted into TV Tropes guild. BTW: we two seem to drift around the same lit fandoms (which doesn't surprise me). It's nice to know that there is someone else who actually read and liked Till We Have Faces :)
- Fellow tea-drinker! Greetings!—Sunny V
- Hi! May the tea be with you!
- Mmmmmm. Tea. I'm drinking some herbal tea right now, actually :3 Little Miss Sophie
- Herbal teas can be nice. I should be drinking linden tea now, as I've recently caught a cold...
- Hello! You sound so similar to me I'd think you were my long-lost triplet! (I'm a twin, in case "long-lost triplet" threw you off a bit, heh.) I'm also a tea afficionado (I'm actually drinking green tea with honey and ginseng as of this typing), and thanks to my Bookworm ways I have most recently read in the street Flight Into Darkness by Sarah Ash. Cheers! ~Torfindra
- Wow, I guess this means that I have two long-lost twin sisters... This is one of the things which happen only to me :) Awesome. Cheers to you and your sis.
