I'm female, and 29 years old. In “real life” I live in Washington DC and recently moved from a job in investment banking to a non-profit. I make a lot less money and that sucks, but at the end of the day I like myself better, and I get to have a life as well. I have an extraordinarily small apartment with no closets on Capitol Hill. I'm (usually) happily single and no kids. I do have a cat who occasionally deigns to notice me.

On the other side of the country, I have 2 parents, and a 10-year-old adopted sister.

In “online life” I am a huge fandom geek. My real-life friends would be shocked to learn this and I have no qualms about lying to keep it secret.

If I randomly friended you and you don't know who I am, it's likely I've gotten into a fanfic you're writing or we have some other fandom-y interest in common. It's not because I'm stalking you. Really. If it makes you uncomfortable, drop me a note and I'll remove you. Likewise if you'd like me to friend you, drop me a note, although I'd say only perhaps 5% of my entries are locked.

If you're here because you came across my fanfic, I don't post much fic here. I jumped into the Harry Potter fandom a few years ago because I thought (no false modesty here) that I could do better than a lot of the fanfiction out there. The fanfic I will admit to having written can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/854730/DeepDownSlytherin. Obviously, I haven't written in that fandom for awhile.

Despite being a city-dweller, I love the outdoors, and I'm recently very into kayaking and rafting.

I'm generally an introvert, which often comes across as being aloof when really I'm just uncomfortable. Unless you get me drunk, then I can't shut up and apparently also think I'm really sexy.

I'm a Democrat, a feminist, a skeptical Catholic with all the guilt that implies, a pretty damn good cook, and a closet novelist. I'm really quite a nerd, with a freakish knowledge of inane and pointless trivia which I always reveal at the wrong moments. I think this is the reason I can never remember my own phone number.
