My name is Gersande La Flèche (they/them/their). I live in Montréal / Tiohtià:ke with my partner Leif and a fluffy, operatic cat who is frankly the true protagonist of our little household. By day I am an independent language worker, writing coach and English-French translator. When not working, I can usually be found drinking lots of tea and scribbling away in one of my many notebooks.

I'm a voracious reader who takes tea-drinking probably a little too seriously because my friends can't stop slyly suggesting I open up my own tea salon. I already kind of run my own salon, however, in the form of this blog. I use this blog as a space for observation and experimentation, to document my projects, to talk about books and games — and, of course, so much tea.

I can also be found on Mastodon, Twitter, and Instagram.

I am the administrator of silvan.cloud and millefeuilles.cloud.

If you want to send me a message directly, I have a contact form here. (As of Feb '23, this form has been disabled until further noticed. See why here.)

Tiohtià:ke: The name of Montréal, Québec in Kanien’kéha. Tiohtià:ke is situated on the unceded territory of the Kanien'kehá:ka, traditionally the meeting place between nations.

To situate myself in the ongoing colonization of North America, I am a settler of Breton, Italian, Québécois-Irish and Colombian origin.
