Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.


Overworked design student by day, exhausted writer by night (which means until 9 o'clock max. Sleep is precious and must not be wasted).

I'm May, a chronically tired college student who juggles writing and freelancing professionally while standing on top of a large pile of books. That girl with the bags under her eyes? That's me.

I am also a Wattpad Ambassador, so if you have any questions regarding Wattpad, the Wattys or any other issues, feel free to pm me!

Fairytale retellings are my aesthetic

PLEASE DO NOT PM ME READ OR GRAPHIC REQUESTS! I have some premades on my Graphic Portfolio book, but I am not open for custom covers unless you want to commission me. You can ask more about this via pm, commission me via DeviantArt or send me a mail!
