He is a known friend of tentacles. He is ace/aro and loves to write non-traditional friendships, like the bond between a utahraptor and their sapient bionic leg, or a tank roaming around Comic-Con hoping to find other people that love Cowboy Bebop. Often you'll find his Horror skews towards the cute, and his Fantasy skews towards the messed-up.
