I'm Aniara.

My name is Aniara... or, at least, my username here is Aniara. I don't speak much... usually. However, I found this website half an hour ago and decided to see what it was about.

I like horror. My favourite film is Hellraiser and my favourite author is Junji Ito. Actually, I planned to begin reading Gyo tonight, but ended up here instead. Horror gets kind of dull when nothing is scary anymore, I've seen enough that nothing really affects me anymore... but Ito can always innovate with his works, so I like to read his stories on occasion.

Sometimes I look into philosophy, mathematics and other areas of study when I'm bored, but it's been a while since I've learned anything of use, nor do I have much motivation to do so. I haven't read in a while outside of the occasional short story or horror manga.

My favourite genre of music is symphonic metal, though I also like progressive rock and more recently discovered darkwave - a genre I would really like to listen to more in the future, though finding new artists seems difficult as it's a relatively obscure genre.

I believe this should be enough? I'll stay around for a while to further understand what this place is like, I suppose.

    Welcome! Would be nice to get to know you more!
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
