Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
  • Random and ditzy, more often than not.
  • Distracted easily by fuzzy animals, sunny days, or shiny objects.
  • Tired of stupid and mean people shitting on peoples life parade. Let them be happy, dammit!
  • Love to make things with my hands, even if I'm not very good at it.
  • Klutzy as all get go, and have the injury posts to prove it. XD.
  • Bonus sentence - Citizen of both USA (born and raised) and Canada (Immigrated in 2007, became a citizen March of 2016).

Top 5 fandoms:


If you mean things I like above other things, and can usually see/read over and over... umm -
the Harry Potter universe (I want more Newt, NOW),
Doctor Who,
Star Wars,
John Hughes films....
I'm sure there are others, but my lack of coffee is disturbing me, so I'll stop here.

I mostly post about:

Daily life - This and that, my klutziness, figuring out my garden (brown thumb queen right here), playing with crocheting, trying to make things out of other things, pet health issues, shopping, hanging out with Aaron (my husband) .. you know, just... random boring stuff happening in my life.

I rarely post/comment about:

My 24 year old son (From a past relationship. Lives in a care home after drug induced psychotic break. Getting daily medical help for addiction, mental health disorders now),
Why Aaron and I don't have kids together (10 year failure rate even with treatments, due to secondary infertility issues)
My side of the family (mostly estranged due to shitting on my life in one BIG dump in 2014. There are a few I still am on good terms with.),
Hot button topics (nope, nope, nope), Politics (Just terrified of the state of things), Religion (Agnostic)...

My last three posts were about:

1: The sun is shining! - Photo post about.. the sun shining! =D
2: B/W Ladybug? - Photo post of a cuute leeetle white and black bug.
3: Random Is As Random Does Photo post of my day.

How often do you post? What about commenting?


I try to read my FL's every day.
Mileage varies on posting. Sometimes I post a lot, and every day. And then there are times where I'll only post once a week or so.
Commenting I do when I have something to say. If I can't think of a response, I don't comment. Easy Peasy

Top 5 Fandoms:
--Furry: My Little Pony, MCA Hogarth's Pelted setting, 'taurs and satyrs and Chakats (oh my! :) 
-- Comics: The Legion of Super-Heroes from DC (we have seen hints of them in the current ReBirth continuity. not least Saturn Girl in the big ReBirth one-shot!), The Wicked + The Divine from Image. The Flintstones from DC (YES, DC is doing a line of licensed
Hanna-Barbera titles, and I think this is the best so far. It's quite a different take on them.) [and quite a few others. I need to trim my pull list fairly seriously.]
-- Science Fiction: the Pelted setting again,
Orion's Arm setting,
-- Indexing:
The Grand Comics Database
 (maybe not quite a fandom per se, but I like doing it!)

I mostly post about:
.
my life (boring, which is why I'm not very vocal...)
occasional snippets of fiction, maybe.

shrugs. I tend not to censor myself much, when I get in the writing mood.

My last three posts were about:
LJ Idol posts.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
as my journal titles states, occasionally (though I do want to get back to at least weekly). Commenting on other's is usually more common.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: i was born a very short lesbian in the deep south and then i married a very tall canadian woman and ran away to PEI. i live with my wife and my rotund demoncat (Thanatos, or as we call him, Fattatouille), and a headful of stories, mostly of the horror variety. i write the way probably most people breathe; i also bind books, make jewelry, paint, sing, hoard languages, garden, bake, and care for infants and small children. i like being in the sky and being in the sea. i don't like winter.

Top 5 Fandoms:
--gaming (currently playing: xenoblade chronicles AGAIN, adventure bar story, and a whole lot of zx spectrum games.)
--yuri! on ice
--doctor who (i'm a diehard eleven fan)
--i'm catching up on call the midwife now so i mean, we can talk about that!
--if you want to talk to me about jrock, we can be bffs on that alone. i have more or less properly been in that fandom since 2003 and i will never stop EVEN AS IT AND THE REMAINING X JAPAN MEMBERS DIE OUT AROUND ME. (too soon?)

I mostly post about:
writing, stuff i'm making, my dumb cat, how immigration is hard, weird conversations i have, and, uh, sometimes i froth about how my mind and my body conspire to kill me, because they do, and that takes up a lot of headspace.

I try not to post about: the situation in my home country. i try not to read about it either.

My last three posts were about: all PSAs about lj's russiapocalypse aside: putting my cat on antidepressants, the launch of my patreon, and a lengthy-but-ugly post on what it means to grow up female in a bad neighborhood in georgia.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
sometimes i post daily, sometimes weekly. i tryyyy to comment on at least all personal posts.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
+ I take stray dogs that show up out where I live and either rehome them personally or keep them until they die.
+ I self-publish pulp fiction novels in part due to laziness, but also because... no, actually, I'm really just lazy about sending things out to agents and whatnot.
+ Migraines happen all the time ):
+ When I can't brain I play a lot of games on Steam (and I can't brain most of the time.)
+ I'm an atheistic, politically liberal woman with neurosis out the ass and who swears, like, a lot. Uhm.


Top 5 Current Fandoms:
+ Star Wars (I wrote a decent amount of Kylux last year, trying to write more plus some other pairings.)
+ Mass Effect (original trilogy)
+ Mad Max (trying to get the game installed so I can get the inspiration going to continue a gen!fic I started on ao3 but never finished)
+ The MCU (Steve/Tony, Clint/Bucky, Natasha/Pepper, everyone/everyone)
+ The Mignolaverse (had the username hellboy back on LJ, and I am SO ANGRY that I had to give it up.)


I mostly post about:
Fandom, randos on the internet who go after me, writing stuff, dogs dogs dogs, what I'm currently doing on Steam, anecdotes about my life that I found amusing, uh... dogs. Lots of dogs. I like science and physics and maths, but since I am not a Uni-graduate I feel rather inhibited about talking about those subjects. Might geek out over something in the future though, time will tell.


My last three posts were about:
Only posted twice since I moved here, and they were about Bioshock, getting into an argument with a redpill on reddit over Mel Gibson of all things, my failure at this month's CampNaNo, and the Great Migration from LJ to DW.


How often do you post and comment:
TRYING to post once a day, no matter how inconsequential my content is. I stopped blogging regularly back in 2011 because I had to move to where there was no internet, and am only now picking it back up. Will probably drop down to two or three times a week as my conviction fades.

Commenting is done only when I have something to contribute, and (hopefully) when I'm not so ill I can actually construct a proper sentence. If I say something to you and the syntax looks weird, I have failed and apologise in advance.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I love writing, especially writing Sims stories. I have been married to the spousal person for 14.5 years or so, and we have lots of cats. I deal with fairly hardcore anxiety. My job is taking pictures and virtual tours of rental properties. I grew up, and still proudly am, working class, and in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

Top 5 Fandoms: I'm not really a fandom sort of person. I write Sims stories, but I don't know if that really counts since they are original fiction and I just use pics from the game for illustration. I also play WoW. Umm - I love Terry Pratchett, although I haven't been able to bring myself to reread any of his stuff since he died. I grew up reading mostly 19th century classic novels - is that a fandom? My favorite of the authors I read growing up is Edgar Allan Poe. :) Also the current show the spousal person and I watch sometimes on DVD is Elementary. Okay, that's five. :)

I mostly post about:
 My eternal quest to understand humans and my eternal quest to understand myself, which the two eternal quests overlap a fair bit. :) I like to research developmental theories, psychology, sociology, neuroscience, philosophy, anything that crosses my mind. I am currently trying to stay away from the specifics of politics, but I'm always into social systems and trying to understand how humans work and if it's possible at all to get them to work better and be nicer to each other. 

I try not to post about: Hmm. There's not really much that I won't talk about. I guess if there's one thing I'm big on avoiding, it's harsh judgement and gossip.

My last three posts were about: a bit of an introduction to the new people I've added today on here, a bit about my current Sims story project and some links to it on my WordPress, and being excited about posting on Dreamwidth and not being weighed down by the anxiety caused by the trollish part of the Sims community on LJ.

How often do you post? How about commenting? It varies a lot. Sometimes I post every day, sometimes it's just a couple of times a month. As for commenting - we'll see. I didn't do it much at all on LJ due to anxiety, but like I said, DW is all new and fresh, and I feel much more able to interact here. So with that in mind - I'd say every time I look at my reading list and I see cool interesting things or people who seem to need some comforting or commiseration. :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I have an undergraduate degree in English Lit and a Masters in History. I'm apparently the sort of person who describes myself using my academic achievements... I love my small urban garden, growing vegetables and cooking with them. I am a novice archer, having taken up the sport in January this year. I would like more Dreamwidth friends. :)

Top 5 Fandoms:
Star Wars
Star Trek
Point and Click Adventure Games
Gardening
Stand-up comedy

I mostly post about:

My life and stuff that inspires/excites me.

My last three posts were about:
Random stuff about my day and deleting my LJ.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
My Dreamwidth journal is very new - I didn't import any LJ stuff over because I have decided to start afresh. So, I haven't made many entries yet, but I'm going to try and post at least once a week, if not more.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:

(Current) Top 5 Fandoms/Fannish Things I Like Right Now:
- The Move/ELO/Wizzard/etc
- Buffy
- Dhani Harrison being adorbs
- Depeche Mode
- SPAAAACE /nerd

I mostly post about:
Life, the universe, and everything. Lots of mundane stuff mixed in with religion and Pagan stuff, memes, bits and pieces, as well as plenty of stuff about writing. It's a mixed bag, really, but that's what you get with me. There will be great pieces of writing, long entries about stuff, and random three paragraph things about stuff. Yeah!

My last three posts were about:
- 9/4/17: finishing a first draft and I went to see Dara O'Briain and it was awesomesause
- 7/4/17: Deleting LJ
- 2/4/17: Tiny Niece is staying over + Camp NaNoWriMo

How often do you post?
I'm trying to post at least once a week, but that's not a set thing. I'm basically trying not to go four months without an entry, which I have done before because I am pants at regular journalling. But I'm attempting to get better at that, and actually use this journal, so. I mean, look, that's three entries in a week up there. A week! That's pretty good for me!

How about commenting?:
I won't comment on everything, but I will if I have something to add. I will, however, read everything in my circle as much as I'm able to.
