fae/faer. he/him. they/them (singular).

masculine and neutral language. 25. writer / artist + occasional streamer (view vods here) and newsletter producer.

Call me HFE or Hale.

I also like using plural first-person pronouns (we/us) sometimes. It’s fun! And to be honest, it also feels safer that way. I don’t necessarily think I’m plural, but with imaginary friends like these, sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s telling the story around here. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I need them to be noisy to drown out the garbage my flesh family thinks is good morals.

How to use my neopronouns.

  • nominative (fae, rhymes with “day”): fae likes to write.
  • accusative (faer, said like “fair”): lots of people like faer.
  • pronominal possessive (faer, said like “fair”): this is faer book.
  • predictive possessive (faers, said like “fairs”): this book is faers.
  • reflexive (faerself, rhymes with “bear self”): Hale’s working on believing in faerself.

How to use singular they/them pronouns.

  • nominative (they): they like to write.
  • accusative (them): lots of people like them.
  • pronominal possessive (their): this is their book.
  • predictive possessive (theirs): this book is theirs.
  • reflexive (themself): Hale’s working on believing in themself.

I’m a 25yo trans masc writing elf who’s a walking PSA for how not to raise children. 2022 has been interesting, to say the least. I finally understand how much I’ve been doing for free. This economy’s complicated and confusing on purpose. Hopefully, other people won’t make the same mistakes I’ve made. Producing creative content is a lot of hard work, and we all deserve to be paid for it.

I’m a videogamer , not a political gamer. However, since all art is political, and my very existence is considered political, I shall proceed with wisdom and kindness. I strive to improve the world we all live in. I do it by listening and learning―especially from multiply marginalized people.

Comments and likes are treasured. I love hearing what other people have to say! I also appreciate you sharing links to my work on social media so that I can grow my audience.

You might notice that I have a few friends linked at the top of the site. These are friends who are really good writers, and who are also queer themselves, including queer in ways that I’m not. “Queer” is a very, very broad term—intentionally so! That’s why it’s important to learn from as many different queer people as possible, because our experiences in life can be vastly different. If you like my work, check them out as well.

The friend I would like to highlight most is Ben Valin aka Hachiko (he/they/Spivak 1975). Hachiko got me into streaming in the first place, and got me actually working on this site. With Hachiko’s help, this site went from abandoned in my emails to something people can look at within a week. Hachiko is a professional social media analyst, as well as an experienced trans and intersex rights advocate. Definitely check out his site if you’re interested in those topics. If you like anything on here at all, you can tip him on ko-fi.

Had to have high, high hopes for a living.
Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling.
I was gonna be that one in a million.
Always had high, high hopes.

Now I’m floatin’ like a butterfly.
Stinging like a bee, I earned my stripes.
I went from zero, to my own hero.

You held me down, but I got up (hey)!
Already brushing off the dust.
You hear my voice, you hear that sound.
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground.
You held me down, but I got up (hey)!
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough.
I see it all, I see it now.

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter.
Dancing through the fire.
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!
Louder, louder than a lion!

Roar written by Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Bonnie Leigh McKee, Katy Perry, and Henry Walter.
