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.

Thanks, all! It’s nice to be back. And a bit odd—so many things changed, yet so few did.

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.
  








"For a short space of time I remained at the window watching the pallid lightnings that played above Mont Blanc and listening to the rushing of the Arve, which pursued its noise way beneath. The same lulling sounds acted as a lullaby to my too keen sensations; when I placed my head upon my pillow, sleep crept over me; I felt it as it came and blessed the giver of oblivion."
— Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
