My last three posts:
* Exercising, and deciding not to that day
* Finding a WoW guild (still haven't)
* uh...

How often I post/comment: Currently, a couple of times a week. I comment when I feel moved to do so.

GIF to describe day so far: I don't GIF, sorry.

[personal profile] spoonorita
Name: spoony

Age: 29

Location: Ohio, United States

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have different tumblrs for different things, but you can find me at saixnipples (fandom + main), spoony-draws (art and fic without the whining), and spookyscaryspoonorita (for creepy stuff).

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I’m an agender human that whines all too much and is far too invested in fandom for my own good. I am an experienced witch, but always open to learning new things. I am socially aware, but not an SJW™ (you know the type I’m talking about).

Top 5 Fandoms: kingdom hearts, steven universe, skyrim, voltron, and i can’t think of a fifth that i’m super into at the moment.

I mostly post about: I like to post fanart and fanfic, but those are sporadic and far between, what with a terrible creative block happening at the moment. I also post random little blurbs about whatever is on my mind, and I whine about retail and rant sometimes. I also post a lot of dark stuff (witchcraft, the paranormal, etc) so if that’s not your cup of tea, then you might not want to follow. This blog is also a dumping ground for relevant info regarding larger writing projects, and those are the only posts that have the possibility of ending up f-locked.

My last three posts were about: occult whining, a sigh of relief after finishing sorting my lj import, and heavily considering building a time machine to beat myself up in 2011.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I left lj/dreamwidth in the dust for several years, but now i’m back and posting a lot, if not daily, then at least every few days.

I don’t comment a lot unless I have something important to say, and if we haven’t interacted before I’m probably going to be a silent lurker for a while. Anxiety is a bitch.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far:

  • Please welcome [personal profile] fragbert66 to the admin team here. He created the original version of this community on LJ, and it seemed silly not to give him the same privileges here.
  • [personal profile] squidgiepdx is hosting a Fandom Community Directory (basically analogous to [personal profile] nanila's username post here). Real Life™ has kept him from updating it for a couple of weeks, but do give it a look, and if there are fandoms you know that aren't represented, help out if you can.
  • ICONS! For those of you new to the DW side of the world, there are a collection of icons on the DW wiki here. I'm currently setting this one as the default for the community, but if anyone wanted to put together a dreamsheep for us, I'd be thrilled. (Bases are available on the [community profile] dreamsheep profile page.)
  • I have nothing else to add that is either relevant or true.

Edited to fix Nanila's username - sorry about that!
yuuo: (Default)
[personal profile] yuuo
Name: yuuo/Unoriginality (Unoriginality @ FFnet since 2000; yuuo since 2003 @LJ)
Age: 33 (in two weeks! Scary)
Location: Nebraska, USA
Gender: I'm easy

Describe myself in five sentences bullet points or less:

-Fanfic author for seventeen years now what is wrong with me
-Sometimes a fanartist, but so out of practice it's not even funny
-Mentally ill and unshameable for it (that's a word because I say so)
-GLBTQ+ and not afraid to take you on over it
-Political but I try to keep that to private spaces

Top five fandoms:

-Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 series; manga/Brotherhood were okay, but didn't click with me)
-Marvel Cinematic Universe
-Slayers
-Vision of Escaflowne (was anyone else weirded out by the movie?)
-Legend of Zelda (Since it is currently the end of April in 2017, Breath Of The Wild hasn't been out long and I haven't played it yet so please don't spoil me or I might cry at you)


I mostly post about: So far, no a lot. This will be changing, as I'm going to start talking about my mental illness and such- crossposting from IJ (user name same there as here).

My last three posts:

-Schizohprenia has an awareness week
-Results of a test and shit
-nothing

How often I post/comment:

As often as I can! Since LJ can go bite on a big one, I'm going to make an effort to peek in here at least once a day.

Apparently there was a gif thing, too. So ETA that.

GIF to describe day so far:

chanter_greenie: a starscape, including a spiral galaxy (on a quest for a jewel)
[personal profile] chanter_greenie
Does an intro post appear with a boing! or a foomph! or maybe a sudden cloud of multicolored glitter? Or something else? Uuuuummm... I'm not even sure. :)

Name: Chanter (this has been my online handle in some form or other since roughly 1998, because I am predictable that way)
Age: I was six going on seven when the Soviet Union collapsed, and yes, I remember those events
Location: Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Gender: female, pronouns she/her/hers, please

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I'm Chanter on AO3. I have a twitter, but I don't tend to give that out quite as readily unless I know you from somewhere, online or offline. It's full of politics and cycling squee.

Describe myself in five sentences/bullet points or less:

Oh, this got unsurprisingly wordy... :)

*Geeky, nerdy, exuberant eccentric who never entirely grew up; the day I am no longer at least partially the daydreaming girl with a desire to travel the stars, something's gone horribly wrong. Radio lady, shortwave, mediumwave and longwave DXer, technician class ham operator with a penchant for old-fashioned CW and SSB, especially on-foot mobile work (call given upon request). Communications officer without a starship, basically.
*MOGAI and proud - I'm a charcoal grey-bisexual verging on ace, a romantic of as-yet uncertain further definition, and a demisensual, which is, as I understand it, a rare variant indeed. Also kinky, but I prefer not to define that variable any further in public space.
*Science fiction, speculative fiction, and lyrical poetry author, currently of the crowdfunded variety. My readership is still much smaller than I'd like!
*Progressive, liberal (in the U.S. use of the term) activist; I fight for justice, but I try not to be the stereotypical, much-maligned SJW.
*Neurodiverse (I don't use this term intending to co-opt it from anyone on the autistic spectrum, and if I've got the wording wrong in an insulting or minimizing way, please tell me and I'll fix it. I'm working from an understanding that there are many ways to be neurodiverse, and I'm quite certain my wiring is not standard for most people.) Diagnosed dysthymic/mild depressive, undiagnosed but very obvious anxiety sufferer, but also a happy multivariety synaesthete. Ears like a bat--or a Sentinel, take your pick--due to decades of heightened use. Nearly totally blind, as in Braille reader and screenreader user, hence the hearing thing, as well as a lifelong musician, reader, orator, culture and language fan, and radio nerd. Hence... the hearing thing! She who has approximately zero chill. She who notices the details everyone else misses, but misses the glaringly obvious.

Top five fandoms: Not sure I'd call myself involved in fandoms in the way that some people out there are, but I'm a fanfic reader and, very occasionally, writer, and some things will forever give me the warm fuzzies even if I don't currently read or write for them. So! Right now I'd say Star Trek (mostly DS9 and TNG), Diane Duane's Young Wizards series, Babylon 5, Band of Brothers, Hamilton, and... I'm going to count both [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's Polychrome Heroics series and [personal profile] aldersprig's Addergoole/Fae Apocalyps series here. Also the original Battlestar Galactica, and... alright, I'll admit, Space Cases. I was the right age in '96, and I fit the profile (see above). Still do. That's far more than 5 fandoms--eek!

I mostly post about: Original writing, local and national politics, daily life, cute kittyness, fandom flailing, and occasionally signal boosts. Once in a while an interesting meme or two.

My last three posts: From least to most recent: The LJ disaster, a new iteration of the ever-circulating cliff/shag/marry meme (aces can play too!), and a daily life post about the convergence of a blood donation and the march for science.

How often I post/comment: I comment on other people's journals much more often than I post, but I'm trying to get better about the posting thing. I've been far too inactive lately. So call it variable for my own posting, and quite frequently for the commenting on others' posts thing.

Not sure if I sound boring, bizarre, or interesting. Hi there, anyhow. :)

Oh, and this may make zero sense to anyone, but if any other former SouCon players are out there and happen to read this post, you are utterly welcome to pounce on me! Please do, even.
