Yo! Interests... hm, I'd say horror, but everything's cool. I love games where my curiosity and exploration pays off. I love exploring and trying new things. I die a lot though. But I’m very happy with it, because I have fun.

I've been interested in the world of IF for a while, but finally made an account (because I couldn't find the correct polls, haha).

I've got about, uh, 8GB of IF on my computer that I need to play through, so... Probably will review as I go! Have a lovely day :)

Also HMU (Cygnus#8445 on discord, CygnusDoesThings on everywhere else) if you want a custom coded site skin (dw I won’t charge you for it unless you want me to. i have free time). IFDB, I love you, but your UI is something one endures rather than enjoys. Thanks for the option to customise it tho! ^-^
