About

Ask me things!

Kyra. Twenty-something Alaskan (ask me about it! I've lived here most of my life, including five years in Barrow, the northernmost community in the US) with two English degrees who seems to be in a holding pattern waiting for life to start. Still thinking about going back to school...some more. The academic nerdery is strong with this one. (Undergrad thesis: werewolves. Grad thesis: vampires. Specifically, Dracula, Twilight, and rape culture.) Writer, reader, wannabe novelist, hopeful cynic, traveler (up to 15 countries! *fist pump*), Ravenclaw, Browncoat, Whovian (Ten will always be my Doctor), member of way too many other fandoms, Tom Hiddleston fan, proud geek and gamer girl, etc. (favorites include the Mass Effect, Portal, and Fallout series, and Red Dead Redemption). Politically conservative-to-moderate feminist (yes, it's possible). Living with clinical depression since at least 2004. Somewhere around the demisexual end of the asexual spectrum. Possibly a vampire.

Also, I'm kind of writing a novel because Tom Hiddleston has a stupid face.

You can find me in multiple elsewheres, in varying degrees of regularity: in my writing journal, mostly for fanfic and fanmixes; last.fm; Twitter; AO3; and Fallen London, where I misunderstood the character creation for some reason and picked the wrong gender, among others. I'm thestarvelingcat on PSN, which is mostly only relevant if you want to find me in Red Dead Redemption multiplayer, and 100indecisions on Steam, as well as at Playfire. I'm still in love with Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I play semi-regularly on the Harbinger server under several different characters.

I also run F Yeah Fireflies and F yeah Raspberries, which are...pretty much what they say on the tin, as well as another one for one of my novels-in-progress. Calli and I co-run Strangeness in the Proportion for a horror game we're trying to make and the Red Dead Redemption blog the gunslinger's lament.

Formerly visions-and-revisions.

To be fair they both look like they decided to attend a costume party as old-fashioned furniture.

gayturians:

don’t say you’re a writer if you just write fanfiction for your entertainment. you’re only a writer if you kill a bear with a typewriter to appease the spirit of hemingway and slather yourself in ink in tribute to shakespeare, the one true over-penis of literature.

There’s ropes in the hallway
Scars in the silver
I know there will come a day
When red runs the river
Keep the light on, keep the light on, waiting
Keep the light on, keep the light on, praying

Remember to have a Super Breakfast!

LOKI CHARMS

can we talk about the fact that if you eat Cap’s cereal you can tell everone you just ate HYDRA for breakfast

But now I actually want these and I can’t have them. Thanks for nothing.

Loki Charms just to get the Glowstick of Destiny in the box.

These are pretty much the greatest. I didn’t buy Loki Charms when I first saw it, I think on RIPT Apparel, and I regretted it for ages—so when it showed up again on ShirtPunch, it was an instabuy, and I’ve gotten compliments nearly every time I’ve worn it. Plus I can think of at least two times Tom himself complimented someone wearing the shirt, so it’s also HIDDLES-APPROVED.

Can we please take a moment to talk about this man? He is not what you would look and say “He is a superhero.” He also doesn’t have any type of superpower, he don’t fly, or have super strength, or has the mutant gene. But he had a choice to do between what was right or wrong, and even though he knew if he didn’t do as Rumlow was asking Rumlow would kill him and just do it, he prefered not to do and die. Because he wanted to do what was the right thing to do.

Awww, it’s the Bravest Little Agent!

…wait wait wait tech guy with dark curly hair who’s cute in kind of a nerdy way, in profile he totally looks like Chuck Bartowski, suddenly I REALLY REALLY want a Chuck/MCU crossover where basically everything is the same except Sarah and Casey are SHIELD agents and Chuck ends up working for SHIELD

Zac’s already in the MCU, it’s perfect, SOMEONE WRITE THIS

(surrexi, now you want this too, don’t lie)
