Greetings fellow sentients and sapients. I'm Purple Prose. Having been lured onto here by a friend of mine from my sci-fi/fantasy group, I figured I should follow her example and make a general-purpose list of things about myself. After all, it helps to have a handy-dandy reference guide to point people to.



1) I am a caucasian cisgendered male. I would rate myself about a 2 on the Kinsey scale; predominantly heterosexual with homosexual proclivities. I identify as a skeptical agnostic with some loose ties to the Church of the Sub-Genius (PRAISE BOB!), mainly because I haven't seen enough evidence of the supernatural to be convinced, though I wouldn't mind being proven wrong.

2) I graduated from Texas A&M Commerce with an MS of English Lit last year with a 4.0 GPA. I am a budding acafan but I have yet to fully make the plunge into those steamy depths. I wouldn't mind presenting at conferences and continuing with a Doctorate, but first I have to acquire funds.

3) I am a nerd and something of an introvert; I spent much of my youth with only a few friends and many, many books. I regularly attend a local anime convention in Dallas and have since high school. I roleplay online and offline, and I have a closet half-filled with gaming books and a very large folder full of PDFs for games.

4) I consume books. That's the best way I can describe my reading habits. I have been known to finish, comprehend and remember an average 600+ page fiction book in the span of a day. In high school, I would echo-locate my way through the halls with my nose deep in my latest literary lunch. Having said that, if I get a good book, I become mono-focused on it; I am utterly useless as far as creative work is concerned until I have finished it.

5) I write. A lot. I've really gotten back into fanfic writing recently and I have several projects going as we speak, most of which will be related to number 6 on this list. I try to write at least 1000 words a day, but I often finish chapters when it's late at night and the spirit moves within me.

6) I am a brony. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has consumed my heart and soul. That's why my default avatar is a purple unicorn. Those of you who are heavily into fandom will understand where I'm coming from. It is a good pain.

7) I like many movies and television shows. I have been slowly accruing a respectable library of my favorites thanks to conventions and Half-Price Books. I love anime and animation, as well as sci-fi, fantasy and action. I have recently gotten my hands on Monty Python and the Holy Grail Collectors Edition, as well as the full season of Firefly and the Collectors Edition of Serenity.

8) I get distracted easily and I can get irritated easily. If I'm not responding to you immediately or I come off as snippy, it's likely because I'm working on something else or I'm just not feeling up to socialization right now.

That's all I've got so far. I'll likely add to this list later when the mood strikes me.
