"Who" (as the Caterpillar asked) "Are Youuuu?"

In some ways that's a complicated question. But generally I'm just me. I'm genderqueer, genderfluid, and nonbinary trans.

I prefer the title "Dr" or "Mx" if/when one is needed, or in some instances, "Sir".

I live in semi-rural Oregon in an 85 year old cattycorner cottage with my partner and our cats Dragon and Cleo.

I'm Autistic. & I am Autisticat! Kill all the evil blue puzzle pieces!

I love Good Omens, and it has helped me so much the past 4 years as I try to cope with a failing body. The hardest part is knowing I won't be here to see the end. I'm trying to make Az & Crowley dolls but sewing is hard these days. I have prints of the happy ineffables all over my room watching over me, thanks to multiple artists who gave me permission to print them out.

I'm severely disabled. I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome/EDS. I was diagnosed in 1972. It's the kind where my joints dislocate instead of being hypermobile, and it makes my skin & other tissues tear easily and not heal well. I also have POTS, cfs/me, MCS, & probable MCAD, and I've had multiple brain injuries. I've been housebound in the usual medical meaning for over 30 years, and completely housebound for 13 years with no access to medical care.

My body is failing pretty quickly now and I don't expect I have more than a few months left.

I'm a multiple brain injury survivor. There's a lot of my life I can't remember, but even though the worst oen was in 1997. I was diagnosed with CFS/ME, POTS, & MCS in 1998 and celiac disease in 2006. I think all of these are actually manifestations of the EDS/POTS/MCAD triad. It's challenging. I've only had 2-3 safe foods for over a decade now, and I'm reacting more and more to them.

The past 5 weeks I've been researching Sarah A. Campbell Thomas after watching a video about her grave on the Oregon trail. I've found her and her family, and I'm currently working on writing out her story.

I researched Stormé DeLarverié in 2018-2020 and created a website in her honour (which I've since transferred to a beloved friend who's also a Stormé researcher, Jeanne Stanley. She will protect Stormé's legacy & my research).

I'm an artist & love to create. I've made StarCATS cat toys, buttons, custom holiday stockings, a pattern for Oswin's scarf, Doctor Who, Good Omens, and Breaking Cat News holiday ornaments, Mutant Enemy paperdolls, custom vampire fangs, and fake mummified skulls. I have a Redbubble and sell some designs on Amazon (search for "Starfire Studio" with the quotation marks.

I'm a writer. I've written two collections of non-fiction metaphysical stories from clients and friends who generously allowed me to share their personal stories: Visits From Beyond and Angelic Encounters. I've also written a young adult fantasy novella, Oak and Mirrors, under the pen name Ceri Evans. I wrote a fanfic series about Moonlight; it's on Ao3 under the name Offcenter. Also a few Good Omens shorts under Catastrfy.

I've been working on my family tree since 2006 and having SO MUCH fun! Many records are digitised now, so I can do research at my desk when I'm up to it.
I've had several DNA tests (ancestry, 23&me, and familytreedna) and via the results, some of the people I was certain were my 3rd ggp's siblings (but had no papertrail) probably were, because I match them at the 5th cousin level! So far this includes Mary Ann Jordan Brennan's brother Martin, and Patrick Brennan's brothers James, Thomas, and John, and sister Catherine Brennan Roach.

I love a snarky, well-written character, such as Methos, Spike, River, the 12th Doctor. I don't really watch much tv or many movies anymore; too many auditory processing issues.

I daydream. I watch bees and dragonflies and birds in the garden. I sing along with our treefroggies.

I read. I giggle. I write. I learn. I cherish my friends.

I'm autistic. I'm silly. I'm eccentric. I'm spiritual. I'm goofy. I'm moody. I'm neuroqueer. I'm fabulous. I'm loving.

I have an unique way of looking at the universe. I'm spiritual, but not religious. I'm qenderfluid/genderqueer & have a lot of trouble understanding why gender is such a major issue to most people, because ... what difference does the plumbing make to who someone IS? Or how they look? But then to me what we look like is just the meat suit, not the person.

I believe in justice. I support the marginalised. I believe survivors. I was raised with "Question Authority".

I strive to: appreciate my blessings, be honest with myself and others, become stronger each day, believe in myself, create beauty, develop my abilities, feel and show compassion, grok, hold wonder, ignite creativity, just be me, love unreservedly, see the beauty around me, spread joy, trust my intutition, use my abilities wisely and always for the highest good for all.
