n. (1) the act of assessing something to be worthless. (2) a cute name for a pretentious, sarcastic young woman's tumblr.
This link leads to the complete collection of all my dubious Doctor Who Fanfiction.
Which is slowly being transferred to Archive of Our Own.
Hypothetically, I am a comic artist, seamstress, writer, and animator; but mostly I sit about drinking tea, watching Dr. Who, and fostering my delusions of being British. Because, as we all know, in England and indeed all of the British isles, they just sit around drinking tea and watching Dr. Who all day. What? You think otherwise? When was the last time you were in England?
I said I wouldn't get a tumblr. Shows what I know.

Since it’s Earth Day, here’s some fun earth facts for ya:
