rating: +38+x

The true genius shudders at incompleteness — imperfection — and usually prefers silence to saying the something which is not everything that should be said.


Hello, and welcome to my humble abode. Cerastes here, formerly DrLycus. Why'd I change my name? I saw a really cool snake and decided to change it. Additionally, I felt it was time to shed the Doctor designation, as I made that way back when I first joined the site, and thought it would be cool to be like all the senior staff.

But you're not here to read me talking about myself. You're here to see all my accomplishments and read about me talking about how great I am at writing.
