Hey there! I'm Lethe (or Ruyi in translation/danmei circles) and I write stuff for characters I like. I love AUs and crossovers a lot! I also adore rarepairs though I've barely written any myself (yet).My twitter's mostly for RTs and following artists/games/writing events/authors, but you can poke me if you want.I kindly ask that you respect my preferences just as I'll respect yours. The world's a big place, and it's more interesting when we're all different. ^-^Thanks for dropping by!

We all write poems; it is simply that poets are the ones who write in words. - John Fowles
