Hey y'all! I'm Elena, also known as Ele, @saltyshiro on twittertumblr, and @magisterpavus on AO3. I'm from the sunny state of Arizona, currently attending college in the not-so-sunny city of Seattle, and I've been writing since before I was literate. Thankfully, we've moved beyond enthusiastic scribbles...(mostly.)

I am incredibly thankful that I found a platform to share my work in fandom; I started in bandom way back in 2010 at the wee age of 11, and since then I have wandered through the Dragon Age and Captive Prince fandoms before "settling" in the VLD fandom. All in all, I have written a whopping 1,582,940 words on AO3, and I'm not gonna stop any time soon. To be honest, I'm not sure I can stop. For me, writing is both a passion & catharsis.

Writing is also becoming increasingly difficult to balance as I ease (or rather, crash headfirst) into adulthood, college, jobs, money, and the world's hearty attempts to crush creative dreams to shreds of cold hard realism. Ideally, I would like to avoid being crushed, while still sharing my work with as many people as possible and working towards making a living off writing!

I will never keep the majority of my fanworks behind a paywall. Financial commitments are hard and I want to share my work, not restrict it. However, by supporting me here on Patreon, you are supporting my ability to share more work with more people, as well as some special tidbits just for my lovely patrons. You are also supporting my goals of editing, reworking, and publishing my own stories as original fiction, the current project being Between the Shadow and the Soul. And after that...who knows what the future will hold? 

Whether you are able to give monetarily or not, I appreciate you and welcome you to explore my worlds of wild mythos, wilder sexuality, true love, queer experiences, magic, space, sprawling history, morally gray monsters, and, I hope, a form of collective catharsis that we can share in together.
