Reynard, here.

Friends call me Petit Reynard, ‘ti Reynard, Fox, Foxy, Sionnach, and many fox-derivatives.  My tattoo artist calls me Dr. Frenchy.

Scholar, opinionated, leftist, liberal with my affections, a dreamer, Faerie-blooded, naturally curious, and a bit of a moon-gazer.

Thick-bellied, Fat-Assed, Beefy, Furry, Beardy Dudes have a special place in my heart and in my bed…and down my throat.

Initiated: 1994

Background: Alexandrian, Stregoneria, Anderson Feri

When I go to someone’s home and they have bookshelves, one of the first things I do is peruse their books.  There’s something about looking through someone’s books that feels like I am getting to know something about them, their interests, how their mind works, what their passions may be…
