I'm Ali, just your average 22-year-old, proudly South African, vegan, feminist, ever-so-slightly geeky linguistics nerd trying to make sense of life in the face of the ever-present disappointment of never having received a Hogwarts letter.
I love writing, and from time to time I fight my natural laziness and actually do it. I write mostly oneshots, because I have a very short attention span, but I've been trying my hand at a few slightly longer pieces lately.
There are many things I'm not. One is a potato. Another is a poet. I occasionally write poems because I want to, but I don't pretend they're great works of art. If you like them, then that's awesome. I would like you to like them. And if you don't, fair enough.
My beta reader is the lovely Liriel-Eris, who is always trying to convince me to write more happy endings, and the art in my icon is by the very talented Kelly Vivanco.
