Disclaimers 1. I'm gay, and very comfortable with who I am. My life in no way revolves around it, but it is part of who I am. If you're a homophobe, I seriously recommend that you not bother me.
2. I write slash. Don't know what that is, then you probably won't like it. Slash is fan fiction of the homosexual kind, meaning male on male, or female on female. With me, you'll only find the m/m type, mostly about hockey, though I do write original fiction from time to time, as well as WWE wrestling, X-Men and baseball. If you're anti-slash, don't bother with your "They are so not like that!" arguments, because I've heard them all before. And really, the statistical odds are in my favor that they are, so :P on you if you're going to try to tell me otherwise.
That's it for the disclaimers, for now. But a word of warning:
If you know NOTHING at all about hockey, but pretend like you do, when you're nothing more than a puckbunny who only watches for the hot guys, DO NOT ADD ME. Because you will just piss me off, and that will not be good, trust me.
