Mar Qaroll, known as Qarollverse on Twitch, is a transmasculine author with a penchant for dark things. A metalhead, melanophiliac, and melomaniac, he sits hunched (tut tut) at his computer desk writing for hours upon hours from shortly after awakening to shortly before sleeping. He likes to say writing keeps him alive; he lives with MDD, major depressive disorder, and is open about his experiences and life.
Mar’s mother encouraged him to write even before he could make out the alphabet. He remembers scribbling in Disney Princess notebooks as if he could. He often says he was “born with a blank piece of paper and writing utensil in hand”. Despite this, his true writing journey only began in 2017 when he finished his first novel.
Being the only writer he knows offline, Mar has struggled with the loneliness and challenges as one for most of his life. Through streaming, he is no longer alone, and when he thinks he talks too much with his fellow writers, they assure him he isn’t every single time.
Outside of writing, Mar loves to inline skate, listen to metal music, and collect things he likes that are colored black.
