I'm a writer, photographer, musician, and extremely amateur vtuber, with an interest in cute stuff, anime & manga, video games, and girly kei fashion. That's a portrait of me off to the right there!
My portrait was drawn by the incredibly talented retro anime artist Otacat! Please check out her art!
The biggest love in my life these days, interest-wise, is Love Live! Shocker, right? Considering the name of this place...Love Live means a lot to me, and it never fails to make me have big emotions, dance around to the songs, and bring a smile to my face. I got into the franchise via the original School Idol Project anime, but I'm a fan of it all! The original is still my fav - µ's is incredibly important to me! - with Sunshine and Superstar my other top favs. I adore Love Live, I fell hard into the Love Live fandom, and now I live in idol hell. In fact, I run the cafe in idol hell. (There are free cupcakes on Fridays.)
Love Live got me to dust off my writing skills and get into creating fan fiction! I wrote my debut Love Live fan fic, Love Live! New Melody Project, a series that follows up from the School Idol Project anime in 2022, with the characters as adults, finding their way back into each other's lives and renewing their bonds with each other. I'm really proud of it, and I'm currently working on the follow-up second season!
I love other anime, too, with my favs usually falling into slice-of-life and queer themes, with some sci-fi and action in there, too. Some of my other favorites of all time include: Love, Chunibyo, and Other Delusions, Azumanga Daioh, Revue Starlight, Lycoris Recoil, Hyouka, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, Laid-Back Camp, Komi Can't Communicate, Gunbuster, Bloom Into You, K-On!, Bofuri: I Don't Want To Get Hurt So I'll Max Out My Defense, Birdie Wing, Lucky Star, Bocchi the Rock!, Do It Yourself!, Assault Lily: Bouquet, and Zombieland Saga.
I love games, too, though I'm not sure you'd call me a "gamer" exactly. My favs are usually RPGs and visual novels, with some other genres thrown in there for good measure. Some stuff I've loved lately includes The Caligula Effect 2, Blue Reflection: Second Light, Stray, Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, Ace Attorney Trilogy (, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Arcade Spirits, Control, Love Live! School Idol Festival After School Activity Wai Wai! Home Meeting, and Forza Horizon 5.
I also love photography, and take a lot of photos when I'm not writing. Besides random snapshots with my phone, I primarily use a Fujifilm X-T4 (when I'm carrying something big) and an Olympus Pen-F (when I'm carrying something small). I'm gonna start sharing some of my work on here for those of you who want to see it!
Finally, I'm also in a band called The Crystal Furs! I started it back in 2015, write some of the lyrics, and play keyboards. You'll be able to read more about that and listen to some of our stuff via the link above!
I'm spoken for, polyamorous, and live with my wife and our kitties and a bunch of Love Live nesoberis :D
I really appreciate you stopping by to read this site, and I hope that wherever you are, you have a great day!
