Ok, I have left this bio as a nonspecific lazy one-sentence for too long. Hi, I'm Reggie! If you know who the guy in the pic above is, then you and I will probably get along swimmingly :) If you don't, or if you have unfortunately caught amnesia, it is Joss Whedon, writer/creator of such things as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dr Horrible and Dollhouse. Yes, I count myself among his crazy fans. Can I help it if I like quality writing, developed characters and original plotlines?
I am not solely dedicated to Mr Whedon, though. I also love his brothers Jed and Zach.
No, seriously, I enjoy other things. Like anime/manga, my favorites being Full Metal Alchemist, Fairy Tale, Soul Eater, Code Geass, and, yes, I must confess, Naruto. I also have a strong love for the graphic novel Watchmen. And I read webcomics. Lots and lots of webcomics. I like scifi and war stories, as well as some fantasy and the occasional love story. I am sort of a political buff, and my views are unabashedly liberal. Though it's not perfect, I have a lot of affection for the current American administration, and I can be seen on ontd_p and rahmbamarama fangirling over the prez, the Chief of Staff and other lolitical figures. Other miscellanious things I like include Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Battlestar Galactica, Avatar the Last Airbender, Glee, Dexter, and Monty Python's Flying Circus. I like music (who doesn't?). I prefer songs over artists or genres, but some of my favorite bands are Barenaked Ladies, Coldplay, The Beatles, A Perfect Circle, My Chemical Romance, Ingrid Michaelson, Owl City, Three Days Grace, A.R. Rahman, Poe, Alexisonfire and Fall Out Boy.
Likes: sugar, hot showers, singing along, teh intarwebs, chocolate, Italian food, road trips, characters with tragic pasts, staying up late, shipping, rain
Personal info: I am a single bisexual with a dirty mind who loves porn almost as much as story. I have a bit of a fucking potty mouth, though I'm not usually overly profane. Born and raised in California (though with relatives all over the country and a car trip-inclined family, I'm well-traveled) and love it here, despite Prop 8. I'm a freshman in college, living in the dorms, with a mom, dad, and little sister an hour and a half away. I am a perspective film major. My goal and dream is to become a well-known writer/creator and create my own TV shows, movies, webseries, novels, comics... I don't know what, but I know I want to create art, be recognized for good work and be remembered long after my physical shell wears out.

"There's nothing wrong with reliance; with trust; with friendship. Leaning on all the others who love you, that's not a bad thing. You don't need to stand alone. People aren't meant to. It's not a weakness. It's a strength: to have enough faith in someone else to know they're going to catch you; to be brave enough to let yourself fall. Yes, by all means, find yourself. Make yourself stronger, better, happier, healthier. But you don't need to do it alone. We're there for you, if you need us. Relying on other people will not make you weak, will never make you anything but stronger." ~Emily L.
