Alene Boon wants to get you slayed. She wants to thrust her microscope-eyes into the wonderful mush of your mammalian brain, to sit in there with you, get a sense of the space, and then to go out and hunt for people who might complement your brain-room nicely. A biologist by training, Boon has never met a human she didn’t want to dissect. Be warned – she cannot STAND much of what she sees going on in this stupid human love dance, and she WILL call that trash out. There’s simply no time in this life to be anything but our own freakshow selves. Though Boon’s sensibilities tend toward the dark, she really just wants to get you all the giggles your lungs can handle. Boon is LOL-dependent, sex-positive, queer-friendly, and basic-intolerant.
