Name: Darkling

Pronouns: They/them

Likes: Interesting history facts, coffee, writing, playing the drums (and piano, and sometimes guitar), etymology, board games, D&D, horrible puns, the number 13, Halloween, cartoons, supernatural legends and monsters of all kinds, The Umbrella Academy (both the comic books and the series)

Dislikes: Dull history facts, milk, country music, not enough sleep, fear, football players generally, although there are a few exceptions.

Hobbies: I write a lot (more specifically, a lot of fiction about various monsters and groups of unsuspecting but tenacious children), and I read quite a bit, practice piano, bike, skateboard, knit, bake occasionally.

Favorite book(s): Currently my favorite book is Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth. (I'm not quite finished yet, though.) It's a queer gothic that switches between modern and historical times, and features wasps, curses, and doomed lovestricken teens. It's written very well, I highly recommend.

Taste in music (n/a if you're not into music): My taste is very broad, but also very narrow in the sense that it can be of any genre if I happen to like a specific song of that genre. That being said I mostly listen to indie, some choice artists being The Smiths, Grimes, Belle and Sebastian, AJR, and Lemon Demon.

Other: Hi :O

Belle and Sebastian is one of my parents' favorite bands, so that music has always been a part of my life, it's cool that you like them.

I like The Umbrella Academy too! I've only seen the show but I will get around to the comics eventually…

I think we are going to get along very well Seadragon. CITY SPIES IS SOOOO GOOD!!!!!! I was thinking about putting it on my fav books section but I thought I had already put too many things down. Do you play an instrument? TOMATOES ARE SO BADDDDDD. I forgot to put that on my list too. Sadness :(

We have so much in common! Rain, exploring, I was born in fall so that's obviously my favorite season. I've read the girl who drank the moon, and thought it was good. What kinds of things do you like to explore?
