TESTIMONIALS
"murphy's law in a person" - krissey
"zines. clay terran truther. always going 'oh fuck i gotta go do duolingo' during vc" - luka

FAQ
"what does the 🔇 emoji in your status/display name mean?"
‣ if i put the mute emoji in my name or status, it means that i am alright, but offline for personal or mental health reasons. i'm ok, but i won't be responding to messages, asks, or posts.
"why a bigcartel and an etsy?"
‣ etsy collects vat for uk customers who would prefer that over paying customs when the package arrives.
additionally, etsy has marketplace and listing fees, meaning that all my products are priced higher on etsy than on bigcartel (usually only about $1-2). however, etsy has a marketplace, meaning people can find me there, whereas i have to drive all the traffic to my bigcartel on my lonesome.
people are welcome to buy wherever they prefer!

less than three

available!

Ren has been in love with his best friend for the past three years. He has no intention of confessing, but he can't seem to move on.
Calliope has spent most of her life dancing. She's decided to put other interests before it now, but it's hard to let go of something she fought so hard for.
Ingrid plans to start over in college, to go beyond what held her back in high school. It's much easier in theory than in practice.
Less Than Three is a collection of three short stories about a group of friends. Together, they shoulder their way through romance, all-nighters, and the occasional dragon.
