I am me.

I write stuff.

I am an avowed Transhumanist.

I am agender.

Disclaimer: None of the following are complete lists.

Tropes I like and/or represent me and/or things I write:

What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Tends to come up in anything I write.
Badass Longcoat: I write characters with them, I RP characters with them, I wear one in real life.
Powered Armor
Immortality Begins at Twenty: With immortagens, why yes, yes it does!
Blade on a Stick: Polearms are undervalued as weapons.
Drop the Hammer: Because hammers are badass.
Deadpan Snarker: Me. Characters I write. To greater or lesser degrees of success.
Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Because breaking things significantly more powerful than you is fun.
Functional Magic: Kind of hard to have high fantasy without it, natch?
You Are Worth Hell: Because sometimes, fuzziness and heartwarming is exactly the right thing.
You Are Not Alone: See above.
Magitek: Does a setting of mine have magic? Check. This follows logically.
Plucky Girl: Though usually with a side of
Jade-Colored Glasses, to end up with some form of Knight in Sour Armor.
Utopia Justifies the Means: I... probably write too many villains with this motivation.
Visionary Villain: Corollary to above.
The Anti-Nihilist: Me. Which, in a sense, makes me an Existentialist.
Levitating Lotus Position: ... For no particularly good reason.
Action Girl
The Engineer
Brilliant, but Lazy: Me, according to everyone around me.
The Chains of Commanding
Due to the Dead/The Dead Have Names: I keep a tally of everyone who has died in any sort of fiction story I write. Then I give every one of them a name. Every. Goddamn. One. My current largest tally of names for a story is 350 762. Yes, I use a random name generator. But small steps to avert A Million Is a Statistic.
You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Most of my characters do. I do.
Gadgeteer Genius: One of my favorite superhero archetypes. Fucking Tinkers.
Serial Escalation/Godzilla Threshold: Only when not done to a ridiculous extent. Except when it is, and still done well. See: Worm

Tropes I dislike:

Transhuman Treachery
Science Is Bad
A.I. Is a Crapshoot
Who Wants to Live Forever?
Personality Powers: It's just kinda boring.
Katanas Are Just Better: No. They're not. They're folded like that because the steel is actually worse.
Every Japanese Sword Is a Katana: Wrong, try again.
Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Damned bioconservatives, making progress harder!


TV, movies, books, etc. I like:

Anything Studio Ghibli.
Most of what Marvel puts out.
Doctor Strange in particular.
Everything in the MCU Except Iron Man 2. And Age Of Ultron, to a lesser extent.
The Expanse
Warhammer 40 K
Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow

Music I like

Blind Guardian
Florence And The Machine
Within Temptation
Jeremy Soule
Caravan Palace
Iron Savior

How well does it match the trope?
