I have infinite hearts for you, whomever you are. Sections are alphabetical, not by preference.


* Captive Prince by C. S. Pacat
There are two books out, each in both digital and print format. The digital versions have extra chapters, which would be nice, except I don't know how you would get those to me, so print is fine, too. (These were originally published under the name S. U. Pacat.)

* Where Children Sleep by James Mollison

Clothes & Accessories

I want to be a glam prince of darkness.

Yes to lightning bolts, bats (as a print; not actual bats), spiderwebs, studs, spikes, gold, gunmetal, black, gray, asymmetry, graphic tees.

No to hearts, skulls, navy blue, red plaid, Urban Outfitters.

Top: Small
Waist: 27"
Inseam: 31"
Shoe: 6.5, give or take half a size

My ears are not pierced.

(Psst, I been eyeing this.)


General notes: A full list of graphic novels I already own can be found here.

I love hardcovers because they're classy and take less damage. I love softcovers because they're cheaper and easier to carry around and read. When choosing between the two, I will usually choose hardcovers (unless the softcovers have more extra content), but I have no lack of love for softcovers.

For the uninitiated, HC stands for hardcover and TPB stands for trade paperback (i.e., softcover). You can find these either on Amazon or at your local comic book store, and if your local comic book store doesn't have it, they can usually order it for you (which is actually better for the book than going to a different store because an order by the store counts as a sale for the book while an actual sale to a customer does not).

If you need guidance, ask a comics retailer. Better yet, ask the people at Fantastic Comics in Berkeley because they are all wonderful people and they all know me.

* Alias Omnibus by Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Gaydos if you can find it for a good price lol

* Daredevil
OK SO There is a lot of Daredevil out there, and I pretty much love everything that is by either Frank Miller or the duo of Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev. But the ones I particularly want are anything that includes Daredevil Vol 1 #168, such as Daredevil Visionaries: Frank Miller Vol. 2 or Daredevil Omnibus: Frank Miller & Klaus Janson, or anything that includes Daredevil Vol 2 #35, such as Daredevil Vol. 2 HC or Daredevil Omnibus Vol. 1 I'M SORRY THIS IS CONFUSING. If it says "Bendis" or "Miller" on it, it's probably good. But I already own Daredevil Vol. 3 HC of Bendis & Maleev's run.

* Flame of Recca by Anzai Nobuyuki
Any volume I don't already own. See list.

* Fullmetal Alchemist by Arakawa Hiromu
Any volume I don't already own. See list.

* Gunnerkrigg Court by Tom Siddell.
Volume Two or Annie in the Forest.

* Hawkeye by Mark Gruenwald
This is the 1983 limited series, not to be confused with Matt Fraction's 2012 run. There are two versions: a paperback that contains just this series and a hardcover that includes four other issues.

* Morning Glories Deluxe Edition HC Vol 1 by Nick Spencer & Joe Eisma
I already own both the paperbacks included in this hardcover, but Morning Glories is my favorite and I want it all. List price is $39.99. Find it for less on Amazon.

* Saga TPB 2 by Brian K. Vaughn & Fiona Staples

* Saiyuki by Kazuya Minekura
I have none of Saiyuki, and I have Vol. 7-9 of Saiyuki Reload. Would like volumes that either count from 1 or are adjacent to the ones I already have.

* Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley
Hardcover color editions. I already own Vol. 1.

* Shuddertown by Nick Spencer and Adam Geen
On Amazon!

* Spider-Men by Brian Michael Bendis & Sara Pichelli

* Supurbia TPB 2 by Grace Randolph & Russell Dauterman

* Takio Vol 2 by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Avon Oeming
Only available in hardcover. Honestly, this book is really overpriced at $16.99 for 4 issues. It is currently discounted on Amazon.

* Ultimate Spider-Man by Brian Michael Bendis and various
Any volume I don't already own. See list. This one is actually a bit tricky because there are three series within the Ultimate Spider-Man series, two of which are titled Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and each of which resets numbering. When in doubt, ask a comics retailer. My favorite arcs, by the way, are "Clone Saga", "The World According to Peter Parker", and "Tainted Love."

* THINGS I HAVEN'T READ! I love getting new reading material. Ask your comics retailer for suggestions based on the contents of this list. I don't want Marvel 616. I am iffy on DC but it could be okay if the protagonist is female, a person of color, queer, or Nightwing. My favorite writers are Brian Michael Bendis, Nick Spencer, and Matt Fraction. A list of comics I intend to read but haven't yet here. Maybe you could get me started.


* dark red full body spandex suit, like .

this wig


* Angel, any season but 5

* Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 4 or Season 6
I can't describe how much shame I feel that I don't own these yet. I want the thick boxy set (about 2" wide), not the thin DVD-sized one (< 1").

* Dollhouse Seasons 1 and 2

* Serenity: Collector's Edition

Make Up

I'm pretty good on eye make up but silver lipstick would be nice so that I can stop putting eyeshadow on my lips every time I want to be shimmery. (It sounds weird but a gradient of pale silver to dark silver lined with a dark magenta-crimson looks excellenttttt.)

In general, I could use lip colors, good quality ones. I already have bright red, dark red, dark red-purple, a neutral-ish pink, orange, and bronze.


I like CDs, especially of artists by whom I've heard a few songs I really like but overall have not heard very much. Lately, this includes Bat for Lashes, The Civil Wars, CocoRosie, Dum Dum Girls, Fever Ray, Fiona Apple, Forest City Lovers, Lorde, and Squalloscope.

Here are all the albums I own. Here is my


* a backpack because mine is falling apart. The more pockets the better. I'd use it for both work and play, so preferably something not overtly nerdy or overly colorful but still stylish.

* Dropbox space. Even just 100 GB for a month would make my work so much easier.

* Final Fantasy VIII for Playstation

* I can always use hand sanitizer, but not in flowery scents. Either scent-less or neutral-ish scents like cucumber, grapefruit, orange, "ocean spray" whatever that is.

* headphones; glitzy ones. Hot Topic has glam, Lady Rainicorn, and Lumpy Space Princess headphones.

* Ichikami Herbal Hair Treatment Oil

* Lemon Lime, Fresh Mint, or Mandarin Orange lip balm from Cosmic Bath & Beauty. Alternately, Walgreens brand lip balm or Chapstick. Do not get me other brands of lip balm please.

* merch, i.e., of Hawkeye or Spider-Man or other things I like (NOT DOCTOR WHO)

* a micro SD card because mine is shot. Micro, like for your phone.

* your favorite mouthwash

* phone case for Samsung Galaxy S3, esp. this one or this one.

* PuppyCat plushie

* sketchbook

* things that have lightning bolts on them. ANYTHING that lightning bolts on them. Clothes, pillows, pens, tote bags, phone covers, bedspreads, lanyards, mugs, etc. etc. As long as they are also otherwise good-looking.
