I am a queer coparenting mama to Dickens Jr. Doodler by day, 911 dispatcher by night. All my favorite shows look better on Tumblr. I am two years and 450K words deep into constructing a fanfic called Ages and I'm never giving up on it. Bering & Wells.

  1. Hey Dickens! Just wanted to say thank you for your work which I love. My mental and physical health are collapsing a bit and I am going through all your comics on Autostraddle and they are really helping take the edge off my anxiety. (I will probably go through the other artists’ after: the work you folks put on here is my favourite!)
