Hi, all~

Some of you may remember me, others may not, and that's cool. I disappeared now almost two years ago, after some rocky stuff both around here and in my personal life, and since then more has happened and changed than can fit into a single intro post. But I miss some of the connections I made on this ship, and so here I am back on board.

For those of you who don't know me, and maybe for a lot of you who do, I'm a writer of adult and MG fantasy novels, a traditional publishing nerd, and an illustrator especially fond of detail black-and-white stuff. I'm also an advocate of semicolons, prologues, timeline shenanigans, queries, and other such misunderstood things. When I'm not writing or arting, which is rarely, I also talk about mental health stuff and lgbtq+ stuff, both of which feature in my works in varying degrees of ownvoices.

You can call me any variation of the username, Ri, Clari, or AC (and only those things, please), and if you're talking about me please use they/them pronouns.

I suppose that's about it! It's interesting to be back, and I'm looking forward to getting to know a lot of unfamiliar names as well as reconnecting with the familiar ones. Perhaps even starting some Storybooks :wink: It's been a while.

Hello! I haven't seen you (I joined in December; it's nice to see you though)... Welcome back! (:
Ugh, I write so much, that now, whenever I want to write something in here, it's impossible because I typed in too much. But guess what? This one made it!

What? I like emojis. Less than horses, though.

Thanks, all! It’s nice to be back. And a bit odd—so many things changed, yet so few did.
(And I totally need to get myself used to thinking in BBCode again)

Welcome back!! :)
There's a thin semantics line separating weird and beautiful. And that line is covered in jellyfish.

I believe in a universe that doesn't care and people that do.
