WHAT UP PUNK ROCKERS! My name is Sorcyress, and this space is my JAMMMMM!

Ridiculousness aside, it's 2019, I'm back to longform journaling and better than ever, and this place is gonna be the replacement home for the LJ that's now nearly old enough to vote. Put your feet up, grab a drink, and stick around! I'm pretty blatant about linking this identity to my meatspace self, but if you need help, I most commonly go by "Kat". I'm your standard short, white, glasses-wearing, long-haired (take whatever you're picturing, add sixteen inches), brunette, fake geek girl. The fake applies to the girl not the geek --I'm genderqueer and use they/them pronouns, please and thanks.

I remain perfectly willing to have just about anyone reading my public posts, and darling, they're *all* public. Well, okay, no. I maintain a [sexfilter] where I occasionally write about more risque stuff, and I have a [therapyfilter] where I used to do serious processing of the emotionally and sexually abusive relationship I survived. Ever since I came fully out about it, that filter's been defunct, but if you're really interested in watching a trauma-processing journey, lemme know and I'll tag you in.

The remaining ninety-eight percent of my posts are open for anyone to read. Feel free to share them as well, although I'd appreciate a sourcing and a mention in the comments that you're sharing around my words (you don't generally need to ask permission but I'm vain and I'd like to see what you said).

Please feel free to comment. In fact, due to my incredible verbosity, I generally assume no one has actually read my posts unless they comment somehow (either on the entry or to me directly somehow). You are also more than welcome to lurk, if that's more your speed. But seriously, I am not bothered by comments, ever. I like short comments, long comments, in-between comments, on-topic comments, off-topic comments, random comments, personal to me! I am desperate for your attention, my friend!

Rather than try and perform my brilliant personality for you more, I now turn the rest of this profile over to the all important TESTIMONIALS file. I highly recommend that you too keep a list of nice-and-or-accurate things that people say of you. It's very satisfying to re-read on occasion, and I feel it may be useful to you to get a sense of who and what I am. I've bolded some of my favourites!


Tho: "[otherfriend], you're positively Sor-like in your inability to limit commitment"

Swing: "You have never occurred to me as non-sexual. You are perhaps not sexually active, but you've got a sexuality to you even if it's not the "I wanna go out and get laid" sort."

Spence: I met and hung out extensively with kdsorceress who may be among the awesomest people in the history of awesome. (That is a list that includes my girlfriend, Eddie Izzard, and the guy who invented garlic mashed potatoes.)

Me: "It's my heart! It's filled with...poison, or something!"
Xalolo: "Just like in real life!"

ErikaKaiser: Tell Sor she's never allowed to claim being the good clone ever again

[erikakaiser] I think your breasts gave me a headache
[erikakaiser] I suddenly got a stab of pain in my head I swear
[erikakaiser] Those are some powerful boobies

Aly: ...I want you to know
That I would hate your guts if you weren't my sister

ShadowKevin: you're a dischordian candle in the darkness

Kyu: It's not the Hitchhiker's that makes you a nerd. It's that your fanfiction characters make a point of practicing safe sex.

Lauren: Kat, you're so nifty. You're like a pocketknife or something!
(In reference to my vast arrray of mostly useless knowledge, like "how to tie a tie")

Shannon: You're bipolar. You go from like giddy to super-giddy.

Ria: The world of conceptual art lost a great mind when you decided to be a math teacher.

Foster: You might meet an engaging young woman who'll help you dance and encourage you to kiss her!
Not a woman. Otherwise accurate!

JoshZed: for someone who prides herself on not adhering to gender stereotypes your notions of different types of social connection classification are confusing in a stereotypical female fashion

Sparr: the number of things I have no need to explain to you is immensely attractive

Anon'd: full disclosure: I'm more interested in playing with your hair than your tits

Swing: Your boobs are newsworthy in the same way that the moon is newsworthy

Tricia: Sidenote: I do not know whether I have told you this, but if I ever gave an award for best hugs, you would win it.

Andy: you evil tempter of frozen treats, you.

Sparr: saying something is the "best thing since sliced bread" implies that it is better than anything else since sliced bread but not better than sliced bread
in this analogy, sliced bread is you

Alys: Kat, you're not just polyamorous, you're poly-city-us!

A lovely sort of boy I know: "I was thinking that I may need to impose on you at some point in Boston. Look, you're attractive, intelligent, and you tie people up. How could I not think of the opportunities?"

Herbert: Kat is about as subtle as a moose with a joystick-controlled rocket pack.

SCDAlex: I find that I also waltz my best with you, and never quite so well with other people

Tailsteak: It's the thought that counts. Thank you!
Me: That's a dangerous thing to say. I think some strange, strange things.
Tailsteak: You do, and I like it

Tailsteak: Seriously, your presence in my life is like a D&D character putting on a ring that grants him a +1 to will saves. It's a subtle but constant boost to my psyche.

Tailsteak: My wife has just asserted that @Sorcyress is "some sort of wizard".

Jake: I trust you!
Me: *eyes start to get very wide and excited*
Jake: I mean, I trust you more than I trust mek. I wouldn't trust you with a big red button or anything

Jazzfish: You are a superlative native guide, at least for two people who like poking in bookstores and other random shops. A+++ WOULD WANDER AGAIN.

Tailsteak: You do strike me as the sort of animal that doesn't do well in captivity.

Brenton: Let me put it this way: if you can't improvise a sword, at Dragon*Con, I will think less of you.

BDan: You're closer to velociraptor size than t-rex size.

Omitted to protect the "innocent": My dear, I can think of no one I'd rather share sucking a cock with.

Fridge: You have an optimally sized face

Sovay: You are a hero of the revolution. And you even have a coat!

Kyu: I checked out your journal and, as it tends to do, your voice appealed.

Spam: There are times I just want to curl up with you and bask in your energy.

Anon'd: you may have been gone a lot of the time and been emotionally unpredictable, but you are not a badly behaved geek.

Sparr: Hey Kat...I think if you were trying to get me killed, it would work.

Genarti: To our benefit, you're a liar.

???: You're right at the top of the list of people I don't want to poison. You and Neil deGrasse Tyson.

HorribleGrey: "You're right!"
Me: "Yes, I'm sorry."
HorribleGrey: "Don't worry, it's genetic, you can't help it."

Lisa (from Pinewoods crew and contra): Kat! It's your fault I have JungleSpeed now! My entire family hates you!

Random stranger at Arisia: You look like an extra fancy viennese pastry --in a nice way!

Becca: Before you got here, I was the only terrible person at this party.

Tricia: Right now, your brain is better than Google!
[[in reference to my ability to come up with English Country Lobster Dances]]

Anon'd: You're ALMOST really seductive. I mean, you're seductive, but every time you start to get there you do something and it just...stops.

Dax: I'm glad your hair is still long! I think it's the source of your power.

Random backstage person: Right now you’re reminding me of Agatha, from Girl Genius, on coffee

Magus: @Sorcyress Some day when you are famous my collection of your dinosaurs will--still probably not have a lot of financial value.

wabbit: But most [friends] are single serving. You guys aren't. :)

Alioth: You explode with life. I really admire that about you.

jere7my: You're cool in that you make the world around you bend to fit you into it, instead of bending to fit the world, & you make people like that.

Lanthir: Had there been any doubt in my mind that I'm hella gay for cute nonbinary people, you would have long since laid those doubts to rest just by existing

Lauren-sis: Thank you for being so exuberantly, radiantly you—you’re a delightful beacon of weird helping so many folks feel less alone and more in control of their own identities


Eventually there should be some useful links down here, for further reading type stuff. As a vague suggestion, try checking out the BestOf tag for random posts I have been proud of.


Journal ToDo List:
*Purge a bunch of the old permalink posts and replace them with relevant/active ones
*Double-check personal info filter and update address, phone number, FB name, etc
*Do Nanila's Subscription Meme which has a nice format for That Sort Of Thing
*The endless tagging project hahahahahhah oh god no not really
*Keep posting, keep commenting, keep being an awesome person!
