|ME and YOU|
|My SOULGEEK Self:||
It's all about trade-offs: I'm sweet, passionate, and romantic (but sometimes I get attached too quickly). I'm a good listener (but I'm shy around new people). I'm honest and humble (but that means less impressive people make a better first impression). I'm bright (but I'm geeky). I'm funny (but it's a surreal kind of funny). I'm compassionate, caring and loyal (but not just to romantic partners-- I live my entire life that way). I'm patient and thoughtful (but sometimes I overthink things). I'm an Aquarius, an INFP, a writer, and a Giant Panda in human form (figuratively)
|The SoulGeek I'm Looking For:||
She values intelligence and/or wisdom, is sweet, non-evil, patient, open-minded. She can follow my odd interconnected thought process, or at least is willing to ask if she's confused by it. She can have any religion as long as she cares about her fellow humans. She can be any body shape as long as it's healthy for her. (Let me emphasize that: Plump zaftig women welcome! So are petite, short,tall,willowy, and muscular women.) She's _not_ an addict, already taken, or looking for drama or quick sex.

|In a Nutshell|
|I'm Into:||Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, Anime, Comic Books, Webcomics, Table Top Gaming, Costumes and Cosplay, Fan-Fic|
|Why I love Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, etc...||
Horror - Horror snuck up on me. I didn't want to be shocked, disgusted, or terrified... but the pathos of monsters intrigued me. The eerie beauty of the hours past midnight called to me. It's better to fight your fears than run from them.
Fantasy - Magic is just one of those things that fascinates me. People act ashamed to believe in it...but instinctively behave as if it were real.
Animation - Scott McCloud wrote once that the simpler a visual image is, the more symbolic, archetypal, universal, and ultimately, the more alive it seems. Animation has freedom...from physics, biology...sometimes even logic. Watching it make us feel free, too.
Comic Books - As a medium, it's very visual, and my mind is very visual. Done well, it can make you see, like a movie can, but the page doesn't turn on its own, so you can think about what you're seeing, like a book.
and honestly, I like superhero stories.
|Some of my SCI-FI Favorites include:||
Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson
I enjoy Star Trek (old and new), Dr. Who (old and new), Babylon 5, Heroes, Lost, and the first season (only the first season) of Earth:Final Conflict.
|Some of my FANTASY favorites include:||
Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, C.S. Lewis, Piers Anthony, Tim Burton, the Princess Bride
|Some of my HORROR favorites include:||
HP Lovecraft, Stephen King, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, Joss Whedon
|Some of my ANIMATION-ANIME favorites include:||
Animation - Pinky&the Brain/Animaniacs, Simpsons&Futurama, Rocky&Bullwinkle, Batman:the Animated Series, Justice League, Dungeons & Dragons (the 80s cartoon), Looney Tunes, Galaxy High
Anime - Madoka Magica, Ouran High School Host Club, Sailor Moon
|Some of my COMIC BOOK/MANGA/WEBCOMIC favorites include:||
Webcomics - PvP, Penny Arcade, Order of the Stick, XKCD, Homestuck, Diesel Sweeties, Girls with Slingshots, Let's Be Friends Again, Scenes from a Multiverse, Wonderella, and 'Super Stupor' (the poorly named but brilliant superhero strip by R.K. Milholland)
Comic Books - I like writers like Peter David, jms, Kurt Busiek, Mark Gruenwald, Bill Mantlo, Scott McCloud, J.M. DeMatteis, Alan Moore, and Neil Gaiman. I've read lots of DC and Marvel. Secretly, my favorite series is the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.
I'm also enjoying watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe unfold.
|Some of my GAMING favorites include:||
Role Playing Games - I usually run Toon, Fudge, Fate, GURPS, or superhero games like Marvel, Aberrant, or (a greatly modified) Champions. I'd run more Mage:the Ascension & In Nomine if I had more players with a taste for that. I play WoD...or whatever a good GM is offering, really
|Some of my COSPLAY favorites include:||
Mal (my comedic vampire character), Alucard (from the anime Hellsing), Kyoya Ootori (from Ouran Host Club), various superheroes, mad scientists (steampunk & modern) and Tuxedo Mask (from Sailor Moon)
