Noldo [Contact]


Concisely: I occasionally write (elliptical and rather pointless) stories. Most of them are about Sirius Black, and aggressively gen; I am not, it must be admitted, particularly fond of romantic relationships. If you are only going to read one of my stories, I suggest Predetermination or Into the Silence.

Precisely: I'm Noldo. It has been a long time since I was an actual presence here; I deal in physics rather than fiction now, & science and illness take up most of my time. I used to be a mod, but am no longer; please direct your questions to other, better people.

Here is inconsequential data: I like topology, Calvino, Nabokov, Borges, and Cortazar; my favourite artist is Joan Miro, my favourite contemporary musician is Vienna Teng, my favourite composer is Bach (J. S.). If you prefer less changeable facts: I am not a white person. I am not a straight person. I am 171 cm tall. I was born in 1991. There is a certain taste to my favourite sort of story (and the sort that I aspire to write) that is like eating dense and faceted glass and grinding it down to nothing. In my spare time, I like to paint, sing, and hike up mountains. Most of the things I say aren't lies.
