- Modern AU, meaning present day, but possibly could be tweaked to recent past (1950s or later).
- She's about 22 at this point, and has been basically on her own since about 14; she still comes from an abusive household and ran away from that very intentionally. She was in and out of foster care as a teenager, but it never really stuck.
- She's still an artistic creature, a model and occasionally artist in her own right; the internet modeling/art scene has been a great help to her, and she's perfectly comfortable. She's got income (irregular but ultimately reliable), she's got her work and her travels and her lovers, she's got a place of her own to live, small though it is.
- She's still got some damage to work through, though. She's got a poetic soul, but also a dark mind, thanks in large part to her childhood.
