Hi! My name is Alexandra, and I am a 3D/2D artist from Sweden with an interest in animation, comics, and video games. I mostly edit articles about those subjects, particularly video games in the role-playing, adventure and visual novel genres; among my favorites are the Ace Attorney, Infinity, Zero Escape, Danganronpa, Science Adventure and Megami Tensei series.

Wikipedia history[edit]

I joined Wikipedia in February 2010, but mostly just edited the Swedish Wikipedia until 2015, when I gradually became more active on the English Wikipedia instead. Reasons include how svwp is much smaller, resulting in few to discuss things with, and my work being unlikely to be read unless I translate it for enwp first. I enjoy creating content, but translating encyclopedic articles can feel like a chore.

Translating did however make me understand what makes an article good: When I decided to translate the enwp GA Shin Megami Tensei IV for svwp, I read through it in-depth and gained an understanding of its structure, realizing that it can be easy to write good articles when one has a good structure in mind and access to good sources. I wrote the svwp article on Shin Megami Tensei using what I had learned, translated it into English, and eventually got it to GA after further help from IV's main editor, ProtoDrake. I brought Ace Attorney Investigations to GA on my own, and have since then kept doing similar work on subjects I find interesting. Starting in 2015, I collaborated with Famous Hobo and ThomasO1989 on Virtue's Last Reward, and in 2016 it became the first article I helped get to FA.

Through 2017 to late 2018, I felt increasingly sapped of motivation to do anything – even things I really wanted or needed to do – due to my untreated gender dysphoria and the accompanying depression and dissociation getting harder and harder to handle. As a result, my activity here, and in most aspects of life, dropped significantly. On September 21, 2018, I started hormone replacement therapy, and have since started to feel much better emotionally and mentally – I haven't felt this good since before puberty – and am now able to feel motivated to do things again.

Projects[edit]

I aim to help bring all Ace Attorney, Infinity, Zero Escape, Danganronpa and Science Adventure articles to GA at some point, and help improve as many articles about World of Darkness video games and Megami Tensei as possible.
