Hello! Here's a bit more about me.

I am heart and soul devoted to the renowned super idol Iori Minase, and fully expect to spend the remainder of my life in the young mistress’ service. She is my sunrise and sunset, my peerless princess, my little wandering star, and I’ve been incredibly lucky for the chance to support her. This is probably the most important thing on this page.

I really, really, really like Idolmaster, especially Million Live. I've written extensively about Revolutionary Girl Utena and have not yet found a work of art that has equaled it. I’m passionate about comics in general, especially manga, and still kind of regret not focusing on writing comics myself when I still had the chance to invest in it. I’m interested in all sorts of architecture, worldbuilding as a practice, and amateur photography. The foundation of my politics is now and always has been Latin American revolutionary history, especially in the context of liberation theology, and I am very slowly but surely transitioning from a terrible wannabe Catholic to a simply mediocre normal one.

I’m chiefly a writer: primarily poetry, but also a substantial amount of fiction and nonfiction. I’d call my perspective a radical feminist one, despite the current connotations of the label, and from that perspective I make an effort to write extensively on the subject that morally demands the most attention from me: the study of and recovery from serious abuse. I approach this focusing especially on sexual abuse, child abuse, and familial abuse.

The confluence of these three simultaneously is singularly important to me, and many of my projects are thus an attempt to contribute to the body of work discussing sibling incest, a subject that both artistically and academically desperately needs more (and more principled) attention.

Understanding what gendered and sexual violence does to people, how various social structures enable it, and how to recover from it both as individuals and as a society is currently my first priority and single highest focus in most of what I do. My somewhat lapsed primary project, Book of Diamonds, is an effort to document my beliefs on this in the form of a certain kind of highly allegorical poetic theory.
