(Excuse me as I shamelessly copy-paste this from the about me section of my profile. Cough.) Well, to start off my name is Rourke and yes, I was named after the actor. But online I usually go by BearEnthusiast. I recently turned sixteen and I'm the younger brother of Rufiya (who is no longer active on Iwaku). I grew up mainly in Florida and I've been writing since I was little and I'd like to think I've improved since then. Haha. I'm Filipino and due to the nature of my father's work I move around a lot. Most recently, my family has moved back to the Philippines and due to the fact that there is no 7th or 8th grade here, I've been propelled from finishing sophomore year to starting my first year at Uni. (Majoring in Arts!) Always been curious about this site due to my older sister who shares my passion for writing and decided to join because why the hell not. :) I'm gay and always have been. Not really effeminate, though I don't mind those who are (you do you boo) and I'm quite familiar with roleplay and how it all works. I best write straight guys, straight girls and gay guys. I'm open-minded and willing to experiment however! That's about it for me, boring I know, but it did come out a lot longer than I expected. ^^"
