Novae Caelum (NOHV-eye KALE-um) is trans, nonbinary, multigender/genderfluid, starfluid, gray ace, and uses star/stars/starself (preferred) or they/them/their pronouns, Mx., and "person."

An example of these awesomely celestial pronouns in use: This is Novae and star is a genderfluid/starfluid trans nonbinary person. Star loves to write stars stories and has so much fun writing them starself. Because writing about space is AWESOME. More info on starfluid, xenogenders, genderfluid, and nounself pronouns.

Novae previously wrote fiction and made design wizardry under a different name. We shall not mention that name.
