Finally, He Types


I'm just this guy, you know?

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

- Into creating languages and fantasy worlds from scratch

- A listener of audiobooks & good tunes

He reached for the fifth of whiskey again, but this time he hesitated and left it in its place on the desk.

He didn't want a crutch for his emotions. At least not more of one. He wanted to get out what he could get out by free will and not inebriation.
