Gender: Male, in case the name didn't give that away.
Age: Don't depress me.
Tumblr Accounts: JoeMerl
AO3 Account: JoeMerl. I'm moving my better fics over there, occasionally with minor edits.
Political/Philosophical Bent/Overly-simplistic opinions on complex social issues: Why do people put these in their profiles? Just to alienate people who might otherwise read their stories?
Current Avatar: Dib and Membrane from Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus.
I write a lot of one-shots and one-shot collections. I need to get around to more longer fics.
My stories tend to be more character-driven than plot-driven. In fact, a fair number of them don't even have plots at all!
I don't write as much romance as I used to, and when I do it comes off very close to being platonic.
