hello. i am corinne mercury and this is my little corner of the internet. i am a writer, a pianist and whatever else takes my fancy.

this blog is governed by an unironic earnestness, a love for the obscure, and a passionate curiosity for any untravelled road, no matter how boring it might be considered by others.

here’s everything that’s mine condensed in a masterpost, if one were so inclined towards binge-reading. (if you’d rather read the plain version of this page, click here)
