I like words. Especially spooky ones.
I also enjoy, in no particular order: animals, horror movies, grandfather clocks, books, extreme metal, the TV show Psych, whisky and wine.
My pronouns are they/them. I am vegan. Romance gives me hives.
A light in the dark
The fire is a living thing. It bites the dead wood and you watch the ghosts rise up against the sky. There are children somewhere in the dark, fueled by sugar and shrieking in terrified delight. Closer to the flames, the lower mutter of adults and occasional cracks of laughter. You lean into the burn and inhale the smell of cinders.
