presume is a fanfiction writer, fan translator, and gifmaker who has been active in multiple fandoms since 2009.

presume aka presumenothing, further aka justjoy. if you think you recognise me by either of those names then you're probably right. currently mainly on tumblr where i write fic and make gifs sporadically (or at least on no recognisable schedule whatsoever) all the while bouncing between fandoms like the world's least-athletic tennis match. unfortunately living on the internet for the last decade and change hasn't actually taught me how to write bios. send help
