desecrets: (tintin and haddock)
[personal profile] desecrets
Name: June
Age: 25
Location: Norway
Subscription/Access Policy: I'm looking for friends who are fannish, and who are more or less in the same age group as myself or in a similar place in life, so that we have some things in common to talk about.  (This isn't trying to exclude anyone or be picky, it's simply that if you mostly blog about the experience of raising a small child, for instance, then I won't be able to comment very much!)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Let's see... I joined LJ in 2008, made a tumblr in 2011, then never really got back into LJ/DW because my flist had become a ghost town, which it still is.  I'm a postgrad (just began my MA) in Norse and Medieval Studies, and my areas of study have been Old Norse language&culture, philology, archaeology, older stages of English and some linguistics, which is also pretty representative of my interests. I'm gay, handwave-y asexual, and a former baby goth who still wears black on the inside. University sucks up a lot of my time, but I also like to draw, fiddle around with GIMP, and write (mostly RP, because it requires less brainpower). I buy books and then don't read them, and I drink tea 24/7.

Top 5 fandoms:

The Vampire Chronicles
Sherlock Holmes (the novels)
Harry Potter
MCU ('Thor')
I ship Holmes/Watson, Harry/Draco, Remus/Sirius, Thor/Loki, Legolas/Gimli.

I mostly post about: Uni adventures, fandom participation, books and TV shows, etc. Occasional venting when I feel burned-out/depressed/what have you.

I rarely post about: Uh. I don't create much fannish content, i.e. fic. I don't post much about political matters. I don't go super into detail about personal things and anything TMI will be behind a cut, lol.

My three last posts were about: H/C Bingo card (boy, that got neglected), and two "what I've been doing lately" entries spaced 6 months apart because, see above, my flist has been nothing but tumbleweeds for years.

How often do you post?: Not often enough, because I feel as though I'm shouting into a void, which makes me more inclined to post to e.g. twitter. That's part of why I'm here!

How about commenting? It depends how well I know the person and whether I feel I can contribute. If a relative stranger has posted a long entry about something deeply personal, like their relationship troubles, I just don't feel it's my place. But I'm always up for commenting on less fraught topics.

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