The Girl With The Magenta Hair


I'm just this guy, you know?

To expand on that, I am also the following...

- A former ficly member who is 38 years old and is schizoaffective (depressive type)

"She couldn't know, right?" the universe thought to itself, simultaneously running every possible scenario of her life leading up to this exact moment, trying to account for all variables.
