Esama is a prolific Finnish author & occasional artist and plushie-maker. Totally enigmatic, her Twitter account has only one tweet dated 2015. Their Tumblr and AO3 however are more stuffed. Little is known about Esama other than that they writes, draws and crafts. On July 6, 2017, she was asked about the pronouns, where she replied:

Finnish is a mostly gender neutral language so I don’t realy care one way or the other but I guess her/she/etc.

#I'm not against being addressed by other pronouns
#I find being mistaken for a guy weirdly flattering and I like they/them/etc because I guess they're closest to the Finnish style of pronoun
#but being female sex I guess I'm a her

They write a lot of crossovers and time travel fic, often with either Harry Potter, Naruto, or Final Fantasy VII. Typically writes their main characters as very-powerful-and-emotionally-kind-of-dead-to-the-world. The genre they favor tends to be primarily gen and gen-ish m/m.

She has exclusive pages for her art[2] and her plushies on Tumblr, as well as a tutorial and making of guide on how to put some of them together[3]. There's also your reblog Tumblr created in August 2017[4], as a way of separating her main work as a writer and artist with her interaction as a fan.

Notoriously known for being receptive to translations, sequels or prequels, they is nevertheless very emphatic about issues of unauthorized plagiarism and reposting. No copy-paste-reposting can be read in all your profiles and works.
