Another year, another rewrite. This page never gets any easier. But, if you insist... my name is Rems, and I am the webmistress of these parts. Once upon a time I had another handle prior to this, but it's been long enough now that Rems is likely what you know me as.feeling alone with you
So, what's to know about the person behind the domain? I'm in my late twenties, and my birthday falls on Christmas Eve, also known as probably the worst day of the year to have a birthday (personal bias included). Starsign wise, I'm a capricorn and a ram, which ultimately makes me a doubly stubborn goat. Personality wise, I'm an ISFJ. When I'm not sleeping or finding it difficult to sit upright - which happens fairly regularly these days - you can find me playing video games or writing. Sometimes I'll watch things. Sometimes I'll sleep some more. Sometimes I'll buy yet another nendoroid. Sometimes I'll stay up in the small hours with insomnia scrolling through tumblr. Y'know, people things. Edgey.
As mentioned, I do write, and I have a writing twitter for that, if you want to give it a follow. Regular fics in this economy is not guaranteed but perhaps you'll find something to enjoy! I take part in Nanowrimo every November, so be fairwarned for ranting about the regular 50k when that rolls around.
As of the end of 2016, I've been suffering with diagnosed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, which has, in a phrase, shot my creativity and ability to do very much at all. Every day is a struggle, particularly when your body is keen to sabotage you and demand disproportional amounts of energy for what you actually do; personally I am housebound and my limits now dictate that I can just about eat and keep up with basic daily hygiene needs. Perhaps if I'm lucky I'll get to engage with the things I love beyond daily tasks. I decided to include this about myself for the sheer fact that CFS/ME is a hugely underesearched, no treatment, no cure chronic illness, and if I have any job left anymore, it's to spread awareness for it. (And if you have it, I see you.) #millionsmissing
I'm very much a gamer. Most of my free time (and I have a lot of it) is poured into video games, because it's the best of both worlds: the narrative to rival novels and the visuals of a movie, the engagement of me playing the protagonist in the starring role. I feel so much more involved in a game, so much more immersed… and yes, I can and will disappear into a game for a week and then return with it the only thing on my mind. 2017 has a lot of good games, in my defence. I'm usually on my PS4, Elsa, or my Switch, Eevee, in some capacity. I've been into Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy as series for well over a decade, even if my gaming favourites are now a little different: I love Assassin's Creed, Crash Bandicoot, Dragon Age, Gravity Rush, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Mass Effect, Overwatch and Transistor a lot. My general genre go-to is RPG (or JRPG), but I'll sometimes wind up in adventure-action. If your game has a female protagonist you'll get extra marks. I'll also support Dontnod in any and all their endevours, because Remember Me and Life is Strange are two of my favourite things ever, period. You can get a general idea of what I've been playing recently by looking at my tumblr.
I play Overwatch and Final Fantasy XIV daily as of 2021. One day I'll achieve diamond in role queue and not just open. You can catch me on Ultros as Prihsciya Lockati.
I'll openly admit I'm not into the anime and manga circuit as much as I once was, and it's mainly the series that I was into in my tweens that I'm still hyped about. A Cardcaptor Sakura rewatch is something of a yearly necessity, and I do have some series that are very dear to my heart by CLAMP, Watase Yuu, and Tanemura Arina (and Peach-Pit, because I'll never be over Shugo Chara!). I'm an animated film buff, a lover of a good sci-fi flick, and a sucker for a good love story. Or anything to do with relationships, platonic or not. Give me a dysfunctional family unit and I'll be happy.
I've been loitering with cyber creations since May 27th, 2004. It occurs to me that there are people on the internet that are younger than the accumulative years I've spent site making. I'm old. The end.
