Name:Wrathful and Unrepentant Jade
Location:South Carolina, United States of America
"Let tears flow of their own accord: their flowing is not inconsistent with inward peace and harmony." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca (5 BC - 65 AD)

It was high time I updated this thing.

I am a thirty year-old mother of one who resides in the gorgeous mountains of North Carolina not too far from Asheville with her son, a cat, a dog, and boyfriend of three or four years. In my spare time I love to write, read, role-play, and play MMOs. I'm currently unemployed with prospects of a new job on the horizon that sadly do not include being a best-selling author. One day I hope to add writing as a second job since I doubt I'll ever be on the level of, say, Stephen King or Neil Gaiman, but I know that regardless of my ability to ever sell a story, I'll probably be writing until the day I die just because it's fun.

I was born and raised in South Carolina and, apart from the year-and-a-half I lived in Maine with my ex, had never lived in any other state until I moved here in August 2010. Despite being a square peg surrounded by round holes, I've found I love the Carolinas/the Southeast and plan to stay here for the rest of my life if I can.

Politically speaking, I am a far-left leaning progressive feminist. You could call me a Socialist without offending me; however, I'm not a "straight ticket" voter and have at least once in my life pushed the button for a Republican or two. Ostensibly, I do vote Democratic, but only because it's usually the better of what are two crappy options. To say I abhor the two-party system is a bit like saying the Sahara is a little dry. You work with what you have and try to make the best of it.

From the previous paragraph you can probably guess that I'm very much pro-choice and have always been so. My son is the result of an unplanned pregnancy and my experiences with pregnancy and birth, though mostly positive, strengthened my belief that every woman absolutely must have complete control over her body. Only she knows what is best for her body, her health (both physical and mental), and her financial stability.

If you disagree with any of that, this probably isn't the place for you.

I blog about this and that. Sometimes it's a political rant, other times I'm silly. I talk a great deal about WoW and role-play and other subjects close to my heart. I do mention mental illness quite a bit for personal reasons, namely that I have one and my mother has one.

Where you can find me outside of LJ/DW:

My Twitter

Archive Of Our Own (Ao3) - Not much there for the moment, and mostly I'll be writing about my WoW character and, maybe someday, some CoH characters too.

City of Heroes/Villains - Just reactivated my account. Mostly you can find me on the Virtue server teaming up with my boyfriend and some IRC friends. Most of my MMO time is spent in WoW. If you want my global id, send me a PM, especially if you like to role-play or at least sit around Pocket D and laugh.

World of Warcraft - I hang my hat on Steamwheedle Cartel, but I can also be spotted on Cenarion Circle. I'm a Horde-side player, but I might have one or two low-level Alli toons I'll own up to. If you want to know character names, well, I don't exactly hide them, but you can also PM me.
