vision misaligned


It’s not that I’m a shallow person. The world just looks to me as if it’s shallow. I have no depth perception. When I was born, the gods were doing this “Build a Geek” challenge, and I ended up with severely crossed eyes. To fix this, I went through eye surgery at about 6 years […]

d&d gave me nerdic inspiration


My boyfriend runs a campaign for just the two of us. He’s got me running 3 characters, each of which seemingly had their own storyline and partner or party DMPC(s).

Like in Breaking Bad. Y’know.. […]
