DOING COMMISSIONS! ephesus-the-cornish-poet.tumbl…
Geneticist and biotechnologist by education, rebel by choice and dreamer from birth.
Fan of SciFi and Fantasy for the most part.
Writing seems to be my true purpose. Every night, my imagination keeps me awake for hours at a time (mostly story ideas).
I do both prose and poetry, as you can see from my gallery. And a few valuable friends have received poems as gifts from me before.
I'm also an aspiring adviser.
People have shared problems and secrets with me, a few of which I successfully counseled them about. You've no idea how many things sound obvious but don't occur to people when they're down.
I also hope to make everyone understand how heartless it is to tell someone to "suck it up" or "grow a pair" and take things without complaint. While it's true that emotions can be kept in check (which is learned behavior), you don't just bully someone into outright shutting them.
That being said, I'm not one to mince words when I know I'm right. Once I've made up my mind, you can be sure I've given it all due thought.
And if you've had an argument with me, you've surely seen how much I prefer CIVILIZED debates, not cynical bickering. Either you've noticed I was being respectful until insulted, or you haven't because you're an asshole and blind as all hell. Only exceptions are subjects on which I get a lot of hatred, which make me likelier to overreact (see above paragraph about emotion control being learned, same applies to overreacting).
I also try to switch points of view and keep a neutral approach, because there are ALWAYS two (or more) sides to a story. It's immature to assume that one is right just because they receive more support, or because evidence seems to prove them right on the surface.
And if I think I'm being misunderstood, I WILL make an explanation to clear things up. I'm not responsible if you choose to ignore the correction and stay stuck up.
