Resignedly beneath the sky

The melancholy waters lie.

About me

I'm in my late twenties, an INXP, and a 4w5/5w4.

My current fascinations are reading and writing. I like long walks, books, languages, open-source software and operating systems, lists, and most things computer. I am a linguistic toe-dipper. I write original fiction. Right now I'm working on a video game. My favorite characters are antiheroes and antivillains.

Friends are welcome. Most of my entries are locked. If you'd like to add me, feel free. I'll most likely add you back—although if we don't have much in common, leaving me a comment would be nice. I occasionally go through and remove inactive accounts from my friends list. If you've been removed and you'd like to be added back, just let me know.

If you'd like to be added, please also take a look at my opt-in custom friends groups and tell me which you'd like to read. I will occasionally add people to the relevant groups if we know each other from a community, so you can also use this post to opt out if there's a group you would rather not read.
