AboutAsk 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.
IDK IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS WEBSITE YET, BUT I DON’T EVEN CARE IF YOU DO.
CHARAHUB BASICALLY ALLOWS YOU TO MAKE A DIRECTORY OF ALL YOUR OCS.
AND SO (they let you get super detailed)
It lets you store 100 characters (you gain 2 extra slots whenever someone uses your referral code) and 10 images per character. You can even make GROUPS to organize them a little more— per RP or something. Image files can’t be too big either.
BUT if you want more file size, more character slots, and more other stuff, you can get a subscription! Don’t worry, subscriptions are super hella cheap (take notes, deviantART)!
I keep forgetting about this, which…is probably kind of a good thing, tbh, because I’m sure I’d get real obsessive real quick. Although I can also see this being very useful.
Do you ever see something someone posted, and you’re just like NO YOU ARE WRONG but you think to yourself, “This isn’t the hill I want to die on” so you have to let it go?
Yes. Yes I do.
All the time. Possibly more often than I should.
FREQUENTLY. VERY FREQUENTLY. Actually I had kind of a revelation about this a while ago—I kind of have a hard time really believing I have a right to my opinions, so for a while I’ve tried to be more vocal about stating and sometimes defending them, but at some point I realized that feeling like I had to defend my opinions was no more freeing than thinking I shouldn’t have them. I mean, yes, there’s definitely value to being able to articulate why you believe what you do, and sometimes also it’s important to examine your opinions for grossness etc., but it’s also pretty liberating to realize, you know what, I don’t have to defend this thing I think. It is totally okay if other people don’t agree or random strangers on the internet dislike me for some opinions. Which was probably a good conclusion to reach at this point when it’s low-level fandom stuff instead of, you know, vicious reactions to me being a woman on the internet with an opinion, since that seems to be inevitable for most female semi-public figures and I’m still planning to get published.
do action movies know they can have more than one female character
Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions.
This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.
