Allow me to introduce…

Orlando

  • Orlando was “born” about three weeks ago and is currently 10 pages long. It should come as no surprise, then, that…
  • S/he’s a little confused about concepts of identity (and gender). As a result…
  • S/he gets more complicated in the telling. Which is a bad thing because…
  • We’ll be spending a lot of time together in the next four months. Thankfully…
  • S/he’s projected to have a pretty speedy growth rate – about 20 pages every two weeks; however…
  • S/he sometimes goes to sleep for long periods of time and wakes up in a totally different form.
  • S/he should reach full size by the beginning of April; however…
  • S/he’s not very good at finishing things; perhaps because…
  • S/he’s indecisive and tends to ramble in stream of consciousness. A lot; which is to say…
  • S/he would be a lot cooler if s/he could kill orcs with a bow and arrow or match swords with Johnny Depp. Be that as it may…
  • People are quick to criticize, and s/he’ll need a personal defender. (That would be me). Unfortunately…
  • S/he has a hard time staying in one era. S/he just won’t stop trying to escape the Renaissance. Oh and did I mention…
  • S/he’s a pretty temperamental little thing. Kind of demanding, too.

Oh right, Orlando’s my thesis.

And right now, s/he desperately wants approval.
