About Demeter

Hi, I’m Demeter! I got my name from the musical Cats, not the goddess, although she’s quite cool too.

I’m twenty-two, I’m from Finland, and I study translation in university. I like hot chocolate with whipped cream. I like to rap sometimes. But please don’t tell anyone.

I love cool earrings and colourful nail polish. I love travelling and seeing new places, especially if those places make me feel like I’m in a Jane Austen book.

I discovered YWS when I was looking for a site to post stories and get comments. I’m really glad that I did, although nowadays I write very little, which saddens me a bit.

My favourite book is the Catcher in the Rye and my favourite film is the Lion King, which you probably never guessed!

I also like fluffy baby seals. ^_^

It is only a novel... or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language
— Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
