College student, writer, anime and manga reader and general bookworm who's probably read too much to be good for them and owns enough books to put [[ReadOrDie Yomiko Readman]] to shame. Also one of the few lesbian [[YaoiFangirl Yaoi Fangirls]] you're ever likely to see (no, that's not an oxymoron). Found my way here courtesy of {{Tropers/Sikon}} thorough a {{Mai-Otome}} message board and a link (specifically the AssPull entry, take from that what you will).

Also known as [=AthenAltena=] in some circles, but uses the other name here since that one is not WikiWord friendly. Can be reached by email and also possesses a [[ Livejournal]] account that occasionally links back to here, and a [[ blog]] where I discuss sociology, philosophy and current events when I have the time/energy to write about them, which seeing as I'm both in college and working isn't often. Also shameless EntryPimp for most {{CLAMP}} related series.

What's with the name, you ask? It has to do with a project I've been working on for the better part of seven years now, and it's only about halfway done. That's as much as I'll say at the moment about it. I have a bit of AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder and also have a second one, though that one (which ironically is longer) may get finished sooner.

Strong believer in "If it's wrong, just fix it/delete it" and removing unnecessary {{Natter}}. I will also zap any use of the phrases [[WordCruft "to be fair" "actually..." etc. on sight]]. Also mildly obsessive compulsive, which occasionally results in massive edit binges.

!Tropes that generally describe me:

* ABNegative (I have this blood type, and a card from the Red Cross to prove it)
* {{Adorkable}} ([[ With matching T-shirt]])
* {{Bifauxnen}} (Let me put it this way: I make a very convincing drag king [and basically look like a younger version of my dad when done up] and tend to dress like that anyway. If it weren't for the HartmanHips I could probably pass as a pretty decent guy, and even ''with'' the hips still get called "Sir" quite a bit!)
* BigOlEyebrows (Not quite as much as my dad, but since they're a darker color they're pretty prominent, and considering how much raising them is generally my only reaction to a lot of things they do stand out. I like my bushy caterpillars.)
* BullyHunter (Guilty. Chalk it up to a childhood that proves KidsAreCruel. Seeing people bully others is one of my guaranteed {{Berserk Button}}s.)
* ButchLesbian (On the Soft Butch side, but Butch nonetheless. I'm actually a big softy most of the time)
* ButNotTooWhite (Hahahahaha... Not. Irish genes + red hair = I don't tan.)
* TheDaria (As a result I usually end up playing the {{Unfunny}} to my friends)
* DeadpanSnarker (Boy howdy! It's genetic, as well as being inversely proportional to how much sleep I've gotten)
* {{Dojikko}} (I was ''infamous'' for this when I was younger, and while I've mostly grown into myself and avoid most mishaps these days I still have my moments, and still manage to injure myself in some pretty interesting ways)
* EyesOfGold (Technically they're [[HazelEyes hazel]], but in the right light they look this way. I also have a blue ring in my eyes, [[ really]]. Given that my mom has blue eyes and my dad has brown eyes the odds of me someday having a kid with blue eyes are actually pretty good.)
* FightingIrish (At times, and amusingly I'll spontaneously develop a thick Boston accent despite being raised west of Boston if particularly pissed off)
* FriendToAllLivingThings (I have this reputation due to a bad case of CutenessProximity with cute creatures, and I can count on one hand the number of animals who haven't liked me. It might just be that I'm generally pretty mellow and have been around assorted types of creatures since a very young age.)
* HahvahdYahdInMyCah (Two years in Boston has resulted in a bit of this, for instance saying "department" instead of "depahtment" takes conscious effort, and the word "car" is going a similar direction. Basically, Masshole and proud of it.)
* [[{{Ptitleztvf5oz5}} I'm Taking Him Home With Me!]] (I'm pretty much a Kinsey 5 or 6, which puts the odds of me being in a hetero relationship somewhere between the odds of getting hit on the head with a meteor and Hell No, so if I do {{squee}} over a guy it's usually for this reason, since I have a soft spot for sweet huggable guys. Known [[strike:victims]] targets are {{Linkara}} and [[{{ThatGuyWithTheGlasses}} Benzaie]])
* {{Kuudere}} (I may act like an EmotionlessGirl on occasion, but there are in fact feelings under there)
* MadScientist (Mostly limited to working with plants, but I definitely have my moments, complete with evil cackling)
* MamaBear / PapaWolf (Protip: I'm a pretty nice person and pretty hard to get mad, but if you ''do'' manage to piss me off by hurting someone I care about full-on Crazy Irish Lady ensues)
* MustHaveCaffeine (At any time during the day I probably have enough caffeine in my system to kill a bull elephant)
* TheQuietOne (Compared to my friends. Most of what does come out is snark)
* ShrinkingViolet (More when I was younger, but have my moments these days)
* SophisticatedAsHell (As a result of reading a lot, having parents who were journalists, and being pretty well acquainted with working class language you'll often hear me do this to comic effect. An example from my criminology class is "The postivist theories of Cesare Lombroso, which relied on Darwinian concepts to explain so-called atavistic characteristics in criminals, were, in short, a crock of shit.")
* StealthHiBye (I do this to people ''a lot'' without meaning to, because I'm just that quiet. I was once sitting by our futon on the floor and it took my roommate's friends 10 minutes to notice me.)
* StoicSpectacles (As of Spring 2008. Might be thought of as a {{Meganekko}}, but has more of the SS personality because of above traits, and my glasses are technically men's frames too, not that I care)
* YoungerThanTheyLook (Ever since I hit puberty early, and possibly before, I've been regularly mistaken for being several years older. Half of this is physical appearance, half is attitude. I'm currently 21 but am regularly mistaken for being 25. It's probably a good thing that I really wasn't the wild type or I could have gotten away with a lot.)
