Childhood, adults often say, is the happiest time in life. For as long as he could remember, Jack Ferry knew better.

Until one mysterious day when Jack discovered that there were others quite like him, singled out for a great gift.

And one day the whole stinking world would be theirs.

Elliott. 27. MLIS graduate.

I'm Canadian, on the political left, into sad gay superheroes crying about one another, into ladies, nearsighted, often cranky, genderqueer, half British, an aspiring writer, an also aspiring librarian, a feminist, a Headologist, and an avid bookworm.

Oh, and a Scorpio.

Here is my Tumblr, here is my library blog, and here is where I bellow insensibly about Captain America. I don't post on LJ much anymore, other than the occasional life update and/or super friendslocked sadtimes post, but I'll still add you if you like!

"It seems fair to say that there are moments in life to look pensive, and there are moments in life when you grab the total stranger next to you, blurt out, 'Holy crap, they haven't played this since 2002!' and hug awkwardly."
- Everybody Hurts: An Essential Guide To Emo Culture, by Leslie Simon and Trevor Kelley

"You know what? Fuck beauty contests. Life is one fucking beauty contest after another. School, then college, then work... fuck that. You do what you love, and fuck the rest."
- Little Miss Sunshine

"Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on."
- Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett

"The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we're uncool."
- Almost Famous
