hi, i'm jáščer
! i'm the host of a system called manyface
our body is 24 and we are white russian people living in the uk. we are various flavours of gay and trans, and also are autistic. while we have different interests, we are all really into art and writing! we make poetry which we perform at open mic nights, lots of abstract art, some other kinds of art, and are into taking photos.
our other "collective" hobbies/interests are reading, listening to music, blogging, webweaving/webmastery, conlangs, ocs, religious studies, embroidery and other crafts, jewellery, nature, and mathematics.
a fun fact about us is that the name "manyface" was chosen because it is a direct translation of "polyhedron" from the ancient greek, and polyhedra are what got us into maths when we were six! we have a bachelor's degree in maths, so that interest has endured, even though i never want to be in higher education again lmao.
the kind of fiction that we like tends to be psychological, symbolic, strange, and with elements of sci-fi and horror genres.
our website is manyface world
! we're pretty new to webweaving/webmastery/the indie web, so it's definitely a work in progress. however, we really love it, and are super hyperfixated on it at the current moment. we didn't know that online could be extremely fun, but it actually is!
now, i'm going to talk a bit about me, since i'm going to be the main person posting here.
my name means "big lizard" in russian and i love lizards very much. i am a lizard! you could call it being a scalie, or being otherkin, but i just call it being me.
the flavours of gay and trans that i personally am are asexual, bisexual, and multigender/genderfluid.
i really like reading translated fiction, especially modern japanese literature. my favourite kinds of music are non-mainstream electronica: mostly progressive stuff and dnb. i also really like listening to touhou arranges. my favourite anime is the newest gundam (the witch from mercury). i really want to watch more gundam, but i can never find the time because i'm constantly making art.
i already said that we make a lot of abstract art, but it really is my favourite thing to do. abstract art saved me and made me the person i am, and i am forever grateful to it. long live abstraction! i guess my favourite thing about it is the freedom and power to make absolutely anything, to say "look, this is what i am and this is what i feel. if you don't like it, you don't have to understand, but if you care enough to see the beauty, you will be rewarded with love and inspiration".
that's kind of how i feel about the indie web too: making a personal website is comforting and freeing in a very similar way!
now, if you've read this far, can i ask you to comment your favourite song? it doesn't matter if it's nowhere near my favourite genres, because i appreciate all music. i'll be sure to listen and tell you what i think!
