This is literally the best picture I’ve ever taken. Who says bookish people can’t also be hot?

Hi there. I’m Fred.

I’ve always been a lover of stories. The first story I ever wrote was a lovely piece of Daniel Boone fan fiction that my first grade teacher, Mrs. Jenny Iley, typed up and laminated for me. That first morsel of validation was all I needed. Ever since then, I’ve never stopped reading and writing, consuming and creating stories. Welcome to my world.

Mask on. Bottoms up.
