My name is Nicholas Graham. I'm a Hermetic magician, budding alchemist, Alexandrian Witch, healer-in-training, occult author, and all around mystical guy. I'm here only to stay in touch with my true and trusted friends. I've been burned enough by fakes and jackasses. Edit: I may add and delete people from my friends list if they interest me, and if I think that there's some potential of real friendship. I keep several custom friends groups for different 'levels' of friendship. Those will be strictly regulated, only for those who have earned my trust and lasting respect. I won't return-friend everybody who friends me.
You want to know a little more about me? Ok, I'll throw you a bone.
