My name is Charlotte but I mostly go by Charlie. I’m Transgender (Genderfluid Non-Binary). I was AFAB and have a complicated relationship with my birth name. I don’t hate it but it’s hard for everyone to say, and it was my great grandmother’s. Less than 0.0075% of Americans share my name currently. So, it feels heavy in a way. As a Wiccan, I believe strongly that names have power. I also believe strongly in rites of passages. I feel like I haven’t earned her name yet but I also can’t drop it. If I ever do legally change my name, I will most likely due to a ritual and take it as my middle name so it stays.
I’m Greypansexual. I have come out as Lesbian, Bisexual, Aromantic, Panromantic and now Greypansexual. I love labels but they can be so hard to figure out. I’m sex repulsed.
I have IBS, I’m Bipolar and have anxiety disorder. I’m tired 24/7 and often are in some sorta pain.
I’m conflicted on talking about Religion. It’s always a risky convo to have as its a very tense subject for people. I’ve been Wiccan since Aug 2012, started to worship Loki Dec 23,2017 after being militant anti-theist. I’m a Progressive Democrat. I was a Clinton voter 2016, and was going to be a Warren voter 2020. Not a Bernie supporter at all, not even trillionthly in fact. I’m a “pinching my nose and voting for Biden with great reclantnce” voter in 2020. He was my final pick but anyone is better than Trump.
I’m a Virgo and I’m such the sterotype too it’s tragic how boring I am! I’m always reading multibooks with Netflix documentary as background noise.
As for bookish stuff? My House Is Ravenclaw, my faction is Eudite, I’m Team Edwadr Cullen. I would say the one pairing to get me the most grief is my love of Taryn and Locke in Holly Black’s Latest faerie series. my fav pairing of all times? Thats a hard one! I really love Alec and Magnus & Nico and Will.
I do read manga again after taking a very long break. I’m currently reading The Ancient Magus Bride, The Flying Witch, In/Specture, Little Witch Academia, and how to treat magical beasts.
For music? Twenty One Pilots, Taylor Swift, Halsey, Hayley Kiyoko, Panic! At the disco to just name a few. Most repeat song of late? Tones and I’s dance money, The HU’s Wolf Totem and Imagian Dragon’s Thunder.
For gaming? I suck. I really really do! I play 7 Days to die (poorly), Stawdew valley (erm…poorly), Animal Crossing (slightly less poorly) and Pokemon on 3DS/ SwitchLite. I love to game, I just suck so badly its hard to watch.
When not being boring and bookish? I’m an activist! I march for Immigration reform such as Driver IDs for all and better treatment for undocumented immigrants. I do alot of work making my local UU church more disabled inclusive and transgender inclusive. I also am addicted to bike riding in spring/fall. I love to take photos.
What is special to me that isn’t a book? My fox plush! I got a red fox plushie off of Amazon that I named Loki. They are also a gift to the God Loki. I also got an arctic fox and fennec fox by the same creator. All named Loki and gifted to the God Loki. My pink flowery kids blanket. It’s been charmed by me to “block” out anxiety or cribbling dysphoria. My Thor’s hammer necklace. Sometimes I’m scared to wear it due to being white and the common belief only Neo-Nazis wear Thor’s hammer.
My pronouns are They/Them but I’m trying to normalizing using my neo pronouns which are Xe/Hirs/Hirself. I didn’t realize I wasn’t cis until 2018. I would say my age but I always worry I sound so immature that people would just tease the hell out of me if they knew my age, so let’s say Over 30 but under 40. My birthday is 9/4, I share it with Hermione Granger and Bella Swan, both of which are also Virgos and A+ blood.
I believe faeries are real, same with most mythical creatures. Sometimes I get down too low and watch too many shows on weirdness. Such as Bigfoot, Mothman,ect. I know I know, my Lunar Aquarius is showing. My rising sign is Gemini.
Why did I go down this rabbit hole? I wanted friends. I struggle alot to make and then keep friends. I’m just too awkward too weird but never weird in the right ways. ARCs or making money was never on my radar really. I am a sucker for pre-order goodies rho.
This came out more wordy than planned but what can I say….I’m a Virgo and a Ravenclaw. (You can take Harry Potter out of my cold dead hands, TERFS) Hmm…what else. Ah! I was a Simon & Clary shipper. I hate love triangles, and always root for the girl to pick the best friend over the bad boy stranger. Jude is a rotten sister, Taryn is the best sister, and Locke isn’t the bad guy in the series.
Okay, now I’m just rambling so gonna end this here for now. Maybe I’ll do check ins every so many months to show what I am bloomed into. We’ll see. I don’t just want to post reviews after reviews. So boring to write up and I know so boring to read. Whelp, onto the next!
