I'm Marrub, also known as Allie, Graham`, or マブマブ. My real name is Alison Watson. I identify as non-binary femme, and I prefer feminine pronouns.
My birthday is May 9, 2000. I have* ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder, and Gender Dysphoria. The latter two are treated medically. I'm plural** and the other one's name is Lily. (If you see me using "we" instead of "I" then I'm refering to both of us.) I'm asexual and polyamorous***.
I'm interested in programming, drawing, photography, music and language and have been self-taught in all of these fields due to issues dealing with school. Some more specific areas of interest of mine in programming include game engines, reverse engineering, and compilers.
If you really want to know more it would be best to just get to know me (or us.) I won't bite, so drop me a line. (Wait, isn't that backwards?) Or you can just stalk me on whatever and glean information from that like a weirdo. (I can relate.)
* As according to several GPs I've been to. I don't do self-diagnosis.
** Dissociative Identity Disorder is a specific prognosis involving a mental disorder involving disassociation from oneself, which also means memory gaps forming. I do not have any of these symptoms, nor do I disassociate - Lily is just along for the ride. I feel it's important to write such a long paragraph in fine print because people commonly conflate DID with plurality, and while they can definitely be connected under some circumstances, that is simply not the case for me (nor is it for many people I know who are also plural.)
*** I do not feel like discussing the intricacies of my gender and sexuality on a bio, so I'll leave it at that.
My programming languages of choice are Rust, Ruby, Racket, C, and Assembly. I also am somewhat skilled in in Python, C++, Lua, and OCaml. Automation languages I'm somewhat skilled in include Fish, Bash, awk, sed, Make, Ninja, Meson, CMake, and Regex. Scripting languages I'm skilled in include ZScript and AngelScript. Assembly variants I'm skilled in include 6502, 65816, and Z80.
I enjoy web development even though I hate actually working with such technologies and ecosystems. The Internet is one of the most vital parts of my life, so being able to simply create anything I want on it is wonderful.
What I enjoy more, though, is writing code for games, being able to craft an entire experience from the ground up is a task that is both difficult and fun to me. I don't really play videogames that often, but making them is something I try to do often. You can find my projects on the main page.
I love listening to music. I'm almost always listening to something, normal or avant-garde, I have to have something playing to be productive at anything.
My music library is always growing, and I still have a ton of CDs I still need to rip. Please suggest me music at your leisure. I love ambient, techno, house, artcore, rock, heavy metal, death metal, and everything inbetween.
Learning and understanding language, foreign and native, and the history of language is something I do consciously and unconsciously. I didn't learn much history in school, but the history of language can teach you a lot about the history of the world without you even trying to do so.
I've studied, in order, English, Old Irish, Russian, Greek, Japanese, Middle English, Ancient Egyptian, Lojban, Toki Pona, and Chinese. Of those, I know how to write (but not read) Ogham, read Russian cyrillic, read and write the Greek alphabet, and I can to some extent read, write and speak Japanese. I am semi fluent in Toki Pona, and am rusty at Lojban, but getting better.
My native language is English. Apparently I learned some backwards southern dialect which I've been trying to get out of me for years now. I also seem to misspell a lot of common words which is odd to me.
