The professy will help!

Will write essays for food. And sometimes fic.

the professy will help!
Clare; 23; queer female; Northern scum; professional nerd PhD student

perpetual student and born academic, interested in: media studies new and old; disciplines that make people say "that's not a real subject"; game studies; Old English poetry; sf&f; gothic fictions; reflexive metafictional wank; reader-response theory; audience studies; fan studies; building critical theories that might actually be useful; new forms of fiction; not-realist texts; pure mathematics; learning languages

incurable fan, who spends an inordinate amount of time: writing character studies disguised as porn (or possibly porn disguised as character studies); starting meta discussions; searching for awesome fic and fanart

Somehow managed to work out a thesis topic that combines the two.

My default setting is tl;dr and tmi, and I do my best to enable it in others.
I think entirely too much about things, and then talk entirely too much about what I think.

I am always interested. Whether or not I am always interesting is another matter.

fan beats man
