That is why you like to *think* you are the leader of malfunctioningProductions when in reality you are a low blood compared to Jessica/Senpai/moirail. You cosplay as Karkat Vantas, John Egbert, Jake English, Len Kagamine, Applejack, link, and L. You like lots of things, including Steven universe and supernatural, also psych. That is it for your bio.
