Interests include fantasy fiction, imaginary languages, free software, comic books, intersectional veganism, cute cuddly things, and supporting anticapitalist revolutions to bring down the whole rotten edifice :HeartTrans:

- 'to fall' = ton-suru in Akiyama babytalk

- Akiyama ~doesn't~ have 13124 words for snow
