I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.

-Ayn Rand, Anthem, 1946

Twenty-something female datacenter tech. Prone to chewing ankles off of fanboys, writing overwrought poetry, driving her pickup truck too fast and shooting handguns. Odd fascination with MUD design, Soviet history, and black ops. Chaoist. Prone to fits of extreme and brutal practicality and mind-bogglingly strange decisions. Probably owns too many fantasy novels and pieces of hardware. Reluctantly Goth despite herself. Tends to talk in the third person.
