MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS SCA, archery, weaving, photography, history, anthropology, Judaism, beaches

HOBBIES I pretend I like embroidery, but really I am terrible at it, I am trying to learn to bake, volunteering at Georgia Aquarium, my dogs (a dachshund and a shih tzu) and cat, reading (YA fiction mostly), weaving, archery, trying to start historical fencing (SCA), I like to sew, but dont have the money for fabric, I keep saying I'll start gardening, but don't have the money to do that either.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV seaQuest, Firefly, West Wing (just starting- don't spoil me!),
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Wimpy Kid series, Hate List

CIRCLE POLICY Comment, friend me, I like new friends. I like people who talk about their life - not fandom.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Recently started a 100 things project of photographs, stuff I do day to day, living with bipolar disorder, the SCA
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ Here's most of my most recent post This is one of the pictures where I think I look prettyest. It's from 1996. The branch is actually on the ground, where it fell in a tornado we had. See, my dog, Spike, woke me up and I saw that the sky was green, flashing, and there was a train sound. So I ran the dogs into the basement before coming back up for my father (priorities: I haz them). My father decided to fuck around, go to the bathroom, brush his teeth, and other assorted bizarre behaviors (priorities: they apparently run in the family).

So I was sitting on the top floor of our house, yelling at him when all of the windows in our house blew out. Finally, when that happened, my father agreed to go in the basement, but then he quickly decided it was too late, and we should go outside and see what damage there was. Most of the trees in the yard were down, and the windows were all broken, but we were lucky. Across the street many of the trees went into people's houses. Most of our trees blew the opposite direction, except for one, which must have spun in the tornado and landed a foot from our house.

Anything else?

I'm a historian by trade orrr I will be once I get back to uni and conquer health problems SO anything to do with Modern European history and most specifically German history gets my geek on.

This gets an instant follow. Omg someone else who does German history. My interests lie mostly with WWI and Imperial Germany though.

liv: Stylised sheep with blue, purple, pink horizontal stripes, and teacup brand, dreams of Dreamwidth (sheeeep)
From: [personal profile] liv
Really nice idea! I'm filling this out in black&white in case people have trouble reading the pretty colours, much as I love your pretty colours!

NAME & PRONOUNS ★ I go by Liv round here, Rachel offline. My usual pronouns are she/her but I am also happy with most epicene pronouns.
CONTACT ★ Comment on my latest DW post or PM me

FANDOM INTERESTS ★ I'm not traditionally fannish, but I do follow some meta, I'm interested in how fandom as a culture works and lots of my friends are fannish
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS ★ The two big things in my life are science, I'm a cancer researcher working with cell and molecular biology, and a university lecturer teaching in a medical school; and Judaism, I'm an engaged and committed Reform Jew and I do a lot of volunteering as an educator / lay preacher within the Jewish community. I'm also interested in QUILTBAG and other gender issues, sex positive feminism, various body positive and body acceptance movements.

HOBBIES ★ Reading; I read about 50 books a year and try to review most of them. Blogging; My DW is kind of a hobby for me, I am really into blogging and having interesting conversations and meeting people. It's not exactly a hobby but I am trying to keep up a regular exercise routine, at the moment running and some weights. My other big leisure activity is travelling to visit my friends, who are mostly not local to me.

MUSIC, FILMS & TV ★ Not very important in my life. I watch films very occasionally, I watch a very small number of TV series years after everyone else when they're out as box sets. I have fairly eclectic tastes in music, more rock (including goth and electronica) than R&B, more early music and baroque than classical, but all kinds of stuff. I mod [community profile] mix_tape, if anyone's interested in sharing mixes.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS ★ Pretty much the only comic I've read is Sandman, and I have never got in to manga. I read all the time, probably about half science fiction and half everything else including litfic and bestsellers. I read stuff from all eras that I can get hold of, probably especially the middle of the twentieth century. Non-comprehensive list of my reading habits for the past decade...

CIRCLE POLICY ★ I am always happy for people to subscribe to me and to either lurk or comment on my posts, whatever you feel comfortable with. I subscribe to most people if I have an idea who they are (eg if they occasionally comment on my posts), but don't automatically add back, especially if the visible posts on your journal are predominantly fannish. I give access only to people I know pretty well. I post almost nothing access-locked, occasional family medical things or very detailed stuff about work, so you're not missing much if you just subscribe.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? ★ Book reviews, journalling about what goes on in my life, political stuff I care about (rarely party politics, more like social justice things), discussions of things I've read online that seem interesting, meta about blogging and the internet. Various random stuff.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ ★ I'm about the most extroverted person I know. I find people endlessly fascinating and love meeting new people. I'm not good at writing concisely.

Anything else? ★ I'm in my mid-30s, brought up and currently living in England. I was active on LJ from 2003 to 2009, and since then I've been active on DW.

NAME & PRONOUNS Tom (male pronouns preferred)
CONTACT PMs preferred

FANDOM INTERESTS Sailor Moon, A:TLA/LOK, Tamora Pierce (both her Tortall and Emelan books), and generally whatever happens to catch my interest at the time. I'm not really going through a huge period of fandom squee right now though since I'm focused primarily on my original writing right now.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS fiber arts, writing, crafty stuff, reading, spending my time squeeing over awesome things, history (oh man, I love history)

HOBBIES Reading, doing cross-stitch, attempting to learn how to knit/crochet/spin, writing original fiction (though this might end up being more than a hobby someday), catching up with TV and movies
MUSIC, FILMS & TV Classical music, movie soundtracks, symphonic metal, Indiana Jones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Earthsea, anything by Tamora Pierce, Narnia, a lot of fantasy books, Fullmetal Alchemist, Sailor Moon, Magic Knight Rayearth, Revolutionary Girl Utena

CIRCLE POLICY I usually friend people back, but I do reserve the right to stop following if I feel overwhelmed or I find myself scrolling past your entries more often than not.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Lately, mostly about my writing, some fansquee type things, what I've been reading and occasionally my struggles with gender identity (genderqueer leaning toward male)
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I'm in my mid-twenties, still finding my way about things. I spend most of my time thinking about either my original writing, fannish things (I still call myself a fangirl for reasons). I'm a polytheist who tends to work within a Norse paradigm, though I identify more as eclectic than as a heathen. I was diagnosed with Aspergers when I was 10 and I identify as some form of gender-variant. I aspire to be a history professor (so there will be some talk of going to grad school) and a published author. I have also a weird fondness for evil overlords from fantasy worlds for some reason. It happens.

Anything else? I love spring! YAY!

A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ Very shy and quiet when it comes to friending people and being social in general. Someone is usually telling me "go talk to them" when I miss obvious social cues. I like making friends and try to because it gets lonely some times. Especially due to being married to the military and always moving. My friends are always online friends vs people I actually hang out with offline.

Anything else? I love DW more than LJ and wish I had more friends on it. I've been trying convince my LJ friends to jump with no success. It would be nice to have friends on here. I really like this place.

NAME & PRONOUNS Charley // They/them/their
CONTACT I have a list of ways to getin touch with me on my journal.

FANDOM INTERESTS I mostly write fic and roleplay in a variety of fandoms. I will rarely do an icon or two but that's about it.
My fandoms are wide and varied but at the moment I am really into Marvel, both movies and comics, American Horror Story, Sherlock, Newsflesh and the October Daye series.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS writing, taking notes, cooking, zombies, foxes, cats, tarot, candles, post-it notes, jewelry, music, drawing, and reading

HOBBIES Writing mostly. A little drawing here and there and the rare coinsurance where I try and play a musical instrument or sing.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV Music: Just about anything, to be honest. I like things from folk to industrial to big band to really anything.
TV: *points to fandoms*
Movies: Honor movies, musicals, indie films and thriller/suspense all make me happyface.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Marvel, as I stated, and anything Seanan McGuire. Neil Gaiman makes me happy, as does Alice In Wonderland and any reworkings of that.

CIRCLE POLICY I will follow you if you follow me.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Mostly writing related things, occasionally a bit about life, sometimes I go into other things but it's mostly words, honestly.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I'm awkward but fun. I love getting to know people, I love writing and reading, I'm silly and odd. I'm a cat with wings. I'm as open as I can be about who and what I am. I'm a geek and I'm generally willing to talk to anything that is willing to listen.

Anything else? Nope! :D

NAME & PRONOUNS FlorentineScot -- she

CONTACT at the moment, it might be dangerous. Pissed of professor is highly pissed.

ok. I view fandoms apparently different than the rest of the journaling community. I'm a huge Trek fan, Dark Shadows, Babylon 5, Lord of the Rings, Procedural Crime Shows, Fantasy and Sci-fi. Don't read slash, don't read most fan-fic, but I do read some.

genealogy, the past and the future, biology/science geek

SCA (a medieval/Renaissance re-enactment/recreation group. We're kinda like a cross between a ren faire and the civil war guys. FlorentineScot relates back to that. Most other hobbies (outside of genealogy) tie back to that -- photography, hiking, costuming, needlework, and I *WILL* learn to tablet weave before this year is out.

see fandoms above

see fandoms -- and include Morgan Llywelyn, Katherine Kurtz, Diana Gabaldon, and Deborah Harkness to the list.

If I like what I see, I'll add you back!

Mostly SCA stuff -- and much of it is public.

Have student will teach. I teach Biology/Botany in the Real World -- and costuming/needlework/botany stuff in the SCA.

Anything else?
don't have a clue.

NAME & PRONOUNS ★ ABN for now I suppose, real name is under flock.

CONTACT ★ If you mean email, I give that under flock, just because spambots have picked it up otherwise.

FANDOM INTERESTS ★ Mostly I'm into discussion and reaction posts - huge on discussion, actually. I love reaction posts as well. I also read and write fanfiction, but not frequently (although I have some WIPs for various fandoms.) I also like hearing about fan experiences and thoughts about fandom.

As for fandoms I dabble in... Harry Potter, Earth's Children, Parks and Recreation, Mad Men, Firefly, Buffyverse, and Doctor Who.

MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS ★ (ETA: Missed this one before!) Writing, social media, human rights, artsy fartsy stuff, spirituality and religion (but not in a pushy or doofy way, I just find religion - all religions - fascinating), history.

HOBBIES ★ I'm an English Major, so right now my hobbies are pretty much read books and then do an insane amount of research on literary criticism. :P I occasionally dabble into crafting and archiving.


Music: The Lumineers, Walk off the Earth, Amy MacDonald, Adele, Jewel when she was a folksy hipster type rather than... whatever she is now, Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum.

Films: Secondhand Lions, The Princess Bride, Father of the Bride, Planes Trains & Automobiles.

TV: Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (mostly the first three seasons, but I think that's a common fandom consensus), Doctor Who, Parks and Recreation, Mad Men.


Books: Harry Potter, Persepolis, Clan of the Cave Bear (Earth's Children series), The Lovely Bones, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and while I wouldn't say I love (I just feel the series could've been executed better.)

CIRCLE POLICY ★ Just one thing - please don't post about my flocked entries elsewhere. If you have an issue with something I say, tell me. I doubt this is an issue, I'm not trying to scare anyone by accusing them of it, but it has happened to me before. Same goes for any personal conversations we have.

WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? ★ Besides the fandom stuff I mentioned, social commentary, social media commentary, entertainment stuff, and sometimes real life things, although I tend to be private about real life.


Okay, completely misunderstood the purpose of the blurb.

I'm in my late twenties and I mostly use DW to talk about my fan interests, entertainment and social media, though you'll also find social commentary. I love to hear about other people's views and values, regardless of how much I agree. The only thing is that I don't have patience for homophobia, ableism, sexism, or racism. On the other hand, I don't use those words loosely - having an opinion I disagree with doesn't usually mean I'll accuse you of any of those things.

I'm a bit of a nerd, but can also be a bit of a girly ditz. Mostly I'm just an average twentysomething working and trying to get a college degree. I look forward to getting to know more people here on DW. :)

CONTACT PM or comment on any of my entries

FANDOM INTERESTS I seldom post fannish content (just an occasional announcement that I've posted a fic). I write fic, mostly for Weiss Kreuz but recently a few for the Chronicles of Narnia. I participate in Yuletide and have a ton of Yuletide eligible fandoms. I love Princess Tutu and Revolutionary Girl Utena. I have plans for epic fics in Rurouni Kenshin and Harry Potter once I finish my current Weiss Kreuz novel.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS I read. I write. I'm the mother of an almost ten year old, and I write a lot about her. I have fibromyalgia and disabling anxiety. I like folk music and filk. I used to do some very basic crocheting, but I haven't touched that in a couple of years, not since my eyes started giving me trouble when I tried to crochet while watching TV. I like table top role playing games (currently playing a D20 Babylon 5 game run by my husband, used to run GURPS and Amber Diceless). I run occasional LARPs using my own rules system.

HOBBIES See above 'Miscellaneous Interests.' Everything I'd put here, I covered there.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV I like a lot of older anime series but haven't kept up with anything new. (I own Rurouni Kenshin, Slayers, Trigun, Full Metal Panic, Weiss Kreuz, Yami no Matsuei, Haibane Renmei, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Princess Tutu, Nazca, Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok, Cowboy Bebop and a couple of the InuYasha movies.) I'm currently rewatching The West Wing. I watch Doctor Who because my husband does. I have a soft spot for The Pretender (my first fandom). I've watched Buffy and Angel and Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis. I can't watch movies on a big screen because that triggers migraines. That means I'm always months behind what everyone else is watching. I tend toward SF and fantasy movies.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS These days, I mostly read kids' books. I love Diana Wynne Jones. I'm currently listening to Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero while I walk in the mornings (having just finished Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief). I have a weakness for Zelazny's Amber Chronicles (and for others of his works). I log the books I read, and that can be found here. I've just finished reading almost everything Kerry Greenwood has published.

CIRCLE POLICY I don't mind anybody reading me. I seldom (almost never) lock anything. I read people because they seem to be interesting or because I have something in common with them. I don't expect everyone I read to read me. I am particularly interested in connecting with other people with anxiety disorders and with other people who are fannish parents. I'd love to find more parents with disabilities, too.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? I post mostly about my day to day life. Periodically, I post DVD logging or book logging, and once every month or two, I post an announcement that I've just put up a new fic or chapter of a fic (I post on AO3 and at my website, never in my journal.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I live in Michigan, in a college town. I'm politically liberal. I'm white, heterosexual, married, cis-gendered and disabled. I have one child, a daughter. 90% of my contact with other people is online, and most of it is passive, simply reading other people's journals and blogs.

Anything else? Can't think of anything.

CONTACT This DW entry should suffice. Anything private in nature should be sent to my DW PM inbox.

FANDOM INTERESTS PREDATOR! ALIEN VS PREDATOR! (Predator and AVP are my main fandoms) Ghost In The Shell (mangas, movies, SAC & 2nd GiG and hopefully the new Arise when it comes out!) Sailor Moon (All of 'em, movies, episodes, I love magical shojo in general and welcome any recs), Zombies (The Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead remake, the Survival Guide, ect...), The Fifth Element (I loved this movie! More of a passive fandom interest)
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS Kawaii things (especially characters, like those from Sanrio, San-X, ect), Art, Science Fiction, Jpop and Kpop, the Food Network, Crafting, Tarot and Divination~

HOBBIES Writing, Free Form Roleplaying, Knitting and Crochet, Drawing and Studying Art, Sleeping...lots of sleeping :(
MUSIC, FILMS & TV See fandom/misc interests above, though I am rediscovering Björk at the moment on my iPod.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS See fandom/misc interests above.

CIRCLE POLICY If you friend me -and- give me access I will reply with like kind. I lock all my posts if only for some sort of control over what I put out there on the internet; I'd just like to know who is reading.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Considering my posts over the past few months, it would be mostly RL with a dash of my fandom interests (mostly Predator this time)...though if someone wants me to talk about a certain topic relevant to my interests I would definitely oblige.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I am so eclectic it hurts. Though for stats: I am 29 SWF living in Western NY State. I sometimes slip into third person because that's the tone I use when talking online during roleplay, and with male pronouns (because I play a male character, and I don't want the other party to know my RL gender). I identify as heterosexual, though.

Anything else? I hope everyone finds some new friends!

Music- Wolfe Tones, Christy Moore, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Johnny Cash, Petrol Bomb Samosa, R.L. Burnside
Films- Avatar, Master and Commander, Taken, Dune
TV Star Trek (TOS), Castle, Firefly, Jeeves and Wooster, Game of Thrones, anything on the History Channel when it is actual historical programming, which sadly isn't very often anymore.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Not into manga or comics. Books- far easier to list genres and a few favorite authors... mystery, historical fiction, alternate history, historical non-fiction, science fiction, fantasy, biography, political thrillers... favorite authors include: Stephen Fry, P.G. Wodehouse, Leon Uris, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, S.M. Stirling, Diana Gabaldon, Lois McMaster Bujold, Alexander McCall Smith, Harry Turtledove, George R.R. Martin

CIRCLE POLICY Always accepting new friends! Enjoy folks who share similar likes and dislikes, but I don't need clones. I don't expect friends to hold all the same beliefs or opinions as variety is the spice! Respect of those differences is important though, for all involved. I cannot abide gossips, liars, and people who discriminate- either negatively or so called 'positively'. Those are my deal breakers when it comes to friendship.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? I post about what is going on in my world. I post about my dog (Merlin- named after the legend, not that horrible BBC show), books, movies, rants (negative and positive), opinions and such.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ INTJ (or INTP, so very close, we are only talking a few percentage points separating the J and the P), everyone should have the right to be equally miserable right to marry whom they wish, pagan agnostic, moderate- politically speaking and have the same amount of derision for democrats as I do republicans, have ptsd, panic disorder, ocd, and am agoraphobic but do not let these issues define me.

Anything else?

NAME Hicku (female pronouns)
CONTACT A PM to this journal - I usually get back to them within 24 hours or sooner

FANDOM INTERESTS Mostly fic! I love me my fanfic. But I'll sometimes get an idea for a video, and I've made some pretty dang good ones, if I do say so myself. I love pretty icons and interesting looking graphics, even and probably especially because I'm not the greatest at making them myself.

MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS I confess, I'm not quite sure what's being asked here. But eh, the usual, I guess. I like to read, I love to write. I like my video games, and I mightily enjoy some tabletop or board gaming when I can get it. I just can't often get it.

HOBBIES Besides the general miscellaneous interests listed above, handicrafts! I've dabbled in a lot of different kinds - sewing, knitting, chainmail, clay. I'm hoping to move on to full fledged costuming over the summer but, until then, I'll be happy if I can make this little Rabite plushie. I've also recently taken up jogging, and I'm getting pretty dang good at it. Any motivation people can offer me is always appreciated! o7 I'd take up photography if I had a camera, but somehow, I never seem to hold on to one. Beyond that, writing. I am a writer of many things, fanfic and original. Currently, I'm up to my eyes in NaNo, and I really like what I'm coming up with so far - so expect to hear a lot about my current project over the next while.

Movies - Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, The Princess Bride, Monty Python, MST3K, Marvel Cinematic Universe

TV - Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Warehouse 13, Xena: Warrior Princess, Elementary, Leverage, Phineas and Ferb, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Dragons: Riders of Berk, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Avatar: Legend of Korra

VIDEO GAMES Breath of Fire, Valkyria Chronicles, Wild ARMs (except 5), Lunar, Disgaea, Resident Evil (I'm currently playing through 6 for the first time, so you can watch me flail around there), Legend of Mana, Kingdom Hearts, Tales of Graces, Dynasty Warriors, NieR, EarthBound, Dragon Age, Cryamore

Books, Anything by Tamora Pierce (except the Circle of Magic series...I never got into that one as much), Terry Pratchet's "Discworld" series, "Good Omens", J.K. Rowling, Jim Butcher, Jonathon Howard, Lord of the Rings, Jenny Trout's "The Boss". I want to get into Game of Thrones, but I'm hesitant to invest that much time and energy into a series that's not done yet.

Manga (and Anime) - Black Butler, Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro, March Story, Chi's Sweet Home, CLAMP, Yu Yu Hakusho, Puella Magi, Jing King of Bandits, Sailor Moon (anime), Samurai 7, Dangan Ronpa

Order of the Stick, Gunnerkrigg Cour, Era Convergence, Angel and Faith

CIRCLE POLICY A message or a comment if you want to friend me wound be greatly appreciated! Out of the blue friendings with no associated contact kind of creep me out. If I know you from somewhere, great! I'll probably friend you back. If not, expect a teeny bit more caution while I learn more about you. That's why memes like this are nice. I sometimes drop off the face of the Earth thanks to school and associated stress, but I'm usually reachable by PM. I'll try to comment on your stuff when you post it, if I have something to say.

WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Abso-frickin'-lutely-goddamn-everything. I post about school. I post about life. I post random thoughts or musings that pass through my mind. I post about life events. I post about random nostalgia. I post my thoughts about fandoms and updates on my current creative endeavors, whatever those may be. I post rants. I post reviews. I make incoherent posts and tl;dr posts. Mine is not a focused journal, and I do treat it very much as a journal, for recording important events just so I don't forget them. I tend to find myself a bit nervous posting about fandoms, though, usually because the fandoms I want to post about are the ones no one on my flist would know about. All in all, opinions! I have them and I have them in spades.

NaNo update from...dang, was that really only about two weeks ago?

"...that moment in NaNo where you go






We've been progressing normally enough for the first 12,000 words. But...suddenly it looks like the hero is going to capture the villain instead of the other way around? Wait, what the fuck? How did that happen?

Oh, right. For a joke, I introduced the flaw in the mad scientist that he has difficulty with waterproofing stuff. Thus, Legion's teleporter harness should by rights be busted. I change, or do I plunge ahead? Fuck it, it's Nano. I plunge ahead, I can maybe get another character on the scene and introduce the endgame Chekov's gun anyway."

CONTACT this journal here, [ profile] twohandedengine on tumblr

FANDOM INTERESTS Listed here. Things I'm currently very fond of include Frasier, The Mummy, Star Trek (basically everything other than nutrek and ENT, though I prefer DS9, TOS, and VOY in that order), RuPaul's Drag Race, C. L. Moore and Henry Kuttner, et cetera.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS Lots of stuff! Reading, writing, (mostly American) popular culture, American pop music (starting around the 1880s and working forward), old Hollywood, music in general, classic television, history (especially 19th- and 20th-century American history), trivia, fun facts, and etymology. Among other things I can't think of right now, lol.

HOBBIES Writing stories occasionally, reading books, RPing, watching tv. I have various other hobbies, but right now, I'm also in graduate school for a degree in library science. So these are the ones I generally fall back on when I'm exhausted, lol.

Music: Everything, jeez. Okay, not everything--I don't like metal at all. But I did my undergrad in music and briefly tried a masters in the subject. I love tradpop, as noted above, as well as classic rock, 90s pop, traditional folk music, and a lot more. If you're interested in my feelings on something slightly more specific (genre, artist, etc.), please ask. Favourite song is Judy's "Over the Rainbow." NO PILLS COULD STOP JUDY'S PAIN

Movies: Classic films (especially musicals), a lot of documentaries, period pieces (whether dramatic or humorous--there ought to be more funny period films!), good romantic comedies, anything that looks interesting. I used to follow movies pretty closely, but now that I have less money to go see them, I don't pay quite as close attention. Not into blockbusters, could not possibly care less about the various Avengers properties.

TV: Things I watch regularly include RuPaul's Drag Race (despite its faults, it's the most interesting reality tv airing now that Work of Art was canceled), The Good Wife, and Frasier. (Back when I had cable, I also watched Rachel Maddow and The Soup, which are basically the only two shows I miss about cable. Lol.) As noted, I find the history of television fascinating and really love when I can catch episodes of Leave it to Beaver and shit like that.

Books: Just finished Medical Apartheid, am now reading Yes I Can, The Warmth of Other Suns, and Secret Historian. Aside from non-fiction, I enjoy some YA (not Hunger Games or Twilight and their knockoffs >>) and a lot of children's books. (Some of the best I've read lately include Sherri L. Smith's Flygirl and Clare Vanderpool's Moon over Manifest.) Period anything is fine by me--actually, when in doubt, assume that I love period settings in all of my media. If you'd like to hear a bit more about what I'm reading or like to read, please ask! I love to chatter about it.

Comics: Locke & Key is the only thing I actively follow atm. I don't do Marvel, only DC, but I prefer graphic novels to superhero comics anyway. I'm most interested in newspaper comics and am very fond of Josh Fruhlinger's commentary. And again, I love seeing the history of comics, especially newspaper strips.

CIRCLE POLICY People who are kind and approach conversations of all stripes with the intent of assuming the best of the people they're talking with. People who aren't all about the political rage high.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Fandom things, life things. I try to talk about the books I've been reading and the shows/movies I've been watching. Sometimes I post sad things, and I try to put those under a cut.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ Uh. IDK. A lot of my shit's unlocked, you can take a look at your leisure.

Anything else? I also have a blog about studying to be a librarian, so if you're interested in that, please PM me. Since it's something I share with RL friends and family, I want to make it available on request rather than rabbiting it about, lol.

A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I'm 32 & live in the North East of England, though I've moved around a fair bit & lived in various other places. I'm currently unemployed. I spent way too much time on the internet & when I do actually leave the house I tend to camp out in the cinema & watch as many films as I am interested in seeing - I have a cinema pass & I love using it. I don't think I am really selling myself that well, but I can't really think of what to say.

Anything else?
I have seen Iron Man 3 already, & IT IS GLORIOUS. If you wish to read a (spoiler-free) review, you can see mine here.

I love war movies and sci fi/speculative stuff. I like horror, but not gross-out, splatterflick stuff. I am ALWAYS looking for cool recs in movies to netflix or catch!
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Planetoid, Saga, Transformers. I used to follow Naruto and Shojo Beat (don't judge me *sob*).

CIRCLE POLICY I keep really personal stuff (mostly whining about this health disaster movie my life has turned into) under a filter, but most stuff is under a general circle filter. Meta is public.

A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ I teach in a small comm college with amazing coworkers and I love robots. I've always been fascinated by identity--gender and otherwise.

FANDOM INTERESTS Marvel, occasionally Sherlock and Dr Who, Megamind, Venture Brothers, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS Art, needle crafts, writing

HOBBIES Er. Oh, do I go more specific here? I draw. I do a lot of knit and crochet and cross-stitch. I like to think I'm good at them, but I probably suck.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV Music: I'll listen to just about anything. What I primarily listen to depends on which fandom I'm writing for. Lately, a lot of Metallica and Black Sabbath. TV: Venture Brothers is the only thing I really keep on top of. I try to keep up with Doctor Who, but I've managed to miss this entire season due to satellite TV. Movies: Marvel movies, Megamind, Hot Fuzz, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I really like villains, or extremely flawed heroes.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS Thor, Journey into Mystery, Hellboy, Saga, Fables, a lot of random stuff

WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? A bunch of stuff. Mostly I just witter on about home stuff and post pictures of things I'm working on.

CONTACT by PM or just comment on a post

FANDOM INTERESTS I'm currently not very active in fandoms but I like to watch various TV shows and mutter about them on twitter (Elementary, Arrow, Flash Point, X-Files, etc.). If I end up writing fanfic it's usually for anime/manga/games (Magi, Kurobas, Jormungand, Gundam, FF, etc.). Nostalgia fandoms and re-watching/re-reading old favourites (I'm grossly into Gundam W this month...)
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS reading (often non-fiction which doubles as fic research), history research (esp. Ottoman Empire and Tokugawa Japan), writing original fic, food experiments, working out, video games, TED talks

HOBBIES pretty much the same as my interests
MUSIC, FILMS & TV folk, darkwave, not really interested in films this year
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS trying to read more of Orhan Pamuk's works, trying to get access to Elif Shafak's works, Shingeki no kyojin!, Magi, Jormungand... Series that are full of teamwork, and action and fit flawed/morally dubious characters

CIRCLE POLICY Feel free to add/unadd whenever. I don't automatically follow back or grant access but I usually do if we were at least introduced/have some things in common
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? stuff I read, stuff I write about, stuff I find neat and want to share, occasional fandom ramblings, I usually keep personal life to private posts.

highlyeccentric: Book on a shelf, entitled "Oh God: What the Fuck (and other stories)" (Oh god what the fuck (and other tails))
From: [personal profile] highlyeccentric
NAME & PRONOUNS Highly! Lady-pronouns.
CONTACT PM will do.

FANDOM INTERESTS I have many, but am not active in a fandom at this time, nor on this journal. Unless you count medieval literature, which is less a fandom and more of a career choice at this time.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS Poetry! Cooking! Extreme nerdery! Talking about myself a lot. Knitting, but I'm not much good at it. Thinking about gender and political wossnames. NOT thinking about said wossnames, when fed up.

HOBBIES Er, see under 'miscellaneous interests', mostly.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV I don't really watch TV, am extremely sporadic with films (but they should have hot people and explosions), and musically I like all kinds of things but especially celtic folk.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS BOOOOOKS. Lots of books! Fantasy, but I'm selective with that these days. Non-fiction of assorted origins, preferably academic or semi-academic; also, medieval lit.

CIRCLE POLICY Arbitrary? I tend to add people with the intention of reading them and later granting access, but this timeline doesn't always happen neatly.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? Public posts tend to be poetry and recipes. Privately I ramble about my life, which varies from the interesting to the excruciatingly dull.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ Uh... I am in my mid-twenties, have aspirations to academia but am in a weird hiatus period at the moment. I like teaching, a lot. I also like lengthy historical discussions, and those "arguments" you have where you and your interlocutor shout at each other about topics you agree on, enthusiastically raising more and more points of agreement and minor difference.

Anything else? Nope, that's about it.

From: [personal profile] k_a_webb
NAME & PRONOUNS Kayleigh, normally, although some people still call me Klee from where I shorten my name on texts. Female pronouns.
CONTACT My twitter is k_a_jones, where I mostly tweet links to my fiction, unless I happen to get into a conversation, and I have a tumblr where I think I'm the same but I can't remember. :)

FANDOM INTERESTS I mostly remain on the outskirts of fandom, even though I'll happily squee about my favourite books with people.
MISCELLANEOUS INTERESTS Paganism, of all forms, although I'm pretty eclectic personally; history, particularly the Plantagenet and Tudor periods of UK history, due to changing schools a lot and doing the Tudors three times; reading; writing; occasionally cross stitch and baking.

HOBBIES Writing, mostly. When I was younger I had loads of hobbies and then they all got expensive. I guess you could count collecting tarot and oracle cards and watching my partner play computer games because I don't play a lot personally. I like the Sims, though, and other simulation games because they don't involve things I can't do, and things like Harvest Moon and Myst.
MUSIC, FILMS & TV I could be here forever answering this question.
Music: as a child I was brought up on 80s rock, including Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, and Saxon, but I also love classical, I listen to pop, and to be honest I have a very eclectic collection on my music player, from Alkaline Trio, to Alien Ant Farm, to Take That.
Films: I watch films when they come on the TV usually, because I'm not a big fan of cinemas, and that means I'm pretty behind on everything. The other problem is my partner works nights, so watching things gets put to the side. I still haven't seen Avatar, or The Hunger Games. *sigh*
TV: another thing I don't watch much any more. I have watched Buffy all the way through, but I never got into Angel.
BOOKS, MANGA &COMICS I read a lot. Mostly fantasy and urban fantasy, although I do enjoy post-apocolypse fiction, some sci-fi, and the occasional piece of historical fiction.

CIRCLE POLICY I pretty much allow access to anyone. I don't post as much as I did, although I'm trying to post more, because I post more at my writing account: kajones_writing. I just read on this account and occasionally comment.
WHAT DO YOU POST ABOUT? My partner, writing stuff, the occasional meme.
A LITTLE BLURB OF YOU~ Hmmm, well I'm 24, currently working on making my dream of earning money doing what I love into a reality by crowdfunding my writing (see my attempts at, and I live with my partner James who sleeps during the day and snores through the time when I write best.

Anything else? I like dogs, and cats, and pretty much anything cute. I'm open minded. I have some major mental health problems that I doubt I'll ever get diagnosed because I hate doctors and things they're useless. I try to comment occasionally, although I often think that anything I say is going to be stupid and pointless.

From: [personal profile] onlysmallwings
Name & Pronouns: Onlysmallwings, female pronouns
Contact: On DW or I'm onlysmallwings on tumblr and twitter. (I'm almost never on twitter, but...)

Fandom Interests: Stargate (movies and all series), Firefly, Once Upon A Time, Fandom itself
Miscellaneous Interests: BBC costume dramas, really terrible lesbian fiction (the free to $2.00 stuff on amazon is my brain-candy); I read a surprising amount of slash for someone who considers herself a femslasher

Hobbies: Knitting, baking, biking, reading
Music, Films, & TV: Criminal Minds, Flashpoint, [everything in my fannish interests],
Books, Manga, & Comics: I'm vaguely following Ms. Marvel, but no other comics. No manga anymore. I've just done a Harry Potter reread, I like The Lord of The Rings. Earthsea, Cold Magic, Tanya Huff (pretty much anything, even the early 90s stuff is still fun to me),

Circle Policy: Add/drop at will, no pressure and I rarely post anything locked.
What Do You Post About: Fannish things, offline life, anything that sticks in my head long enough for me to post about
A Little Blurb Of You: I'm a white, cisfemale, Texan, 28, single, lesbian, fangirl, knitter layabout.

Anything Else?
That thing you love? Let me know, I'm always up for trying new fandoms. Even if I don't know the canon! (Teen Wolf, I'm looking at you.)
