Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Right now, I´m in a re-education for store man (hope it’s the right description) January next year I´m finally done and can start to work.
I´m pretty open minded and almost always straight forward about what I´m thinking, even if people have problems with it. I´m a gamer (right now Xbox but want to switch to PS4), love reading fanfiction and books, movies.


Top 5 Fandoms:  Harry Potter, Supernatural, Star Trek, Assassin Creed

I mostly post about:  Daily things that happened, my feelings and reviews for shows and movies I watched, 

My last three posts were about:  My first here was today about shitty purchase on ebay.

How often do you post?
It´s differ, sometimes once I week or more but when I don’t feel like it and nothing happens then less.

How about commenting?
  When I can connect with the post then of course

I have never been one for 'online' or social media. The internet for me has always been a useful tool but nothing more than that. Until now. Last week, I broke my leg. A displaced fracture. I had to have an operation to put pins in it, and naturally, I went and had a reaction to the anaesthetic because if you're going to do something, do it properly! So now I'm stuck on my ass for 'at least three months' while my body works on healing. Most of my hobbies are active and after a few days of being stuck on the couch, reading and watching TV, I'm looking for something less passive. My darling husband [personal profile] jackjanderson (we're both very creative with username ideas as you can see!) has a blog and thoroughly enjoys it so he suggested I try it and that I come over here. So here I am.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a scientist and a teacher but nothing like you imagine when you hear those two words. I'm the sort of walking contradiction who wears flouncy dresses with leather jackets and biker boots. Think of me as another cute blonde woman at your peril - my passions in life are physics, engineering and mechanics closely followed by tasty baked goods, especially cupcakes. My brother says my motto in life is "she's beauty, she's grace, she'll punch you in the face" and he experienced many of those punches when we were in the single digits!

Top 5 Fandoms: Doctor Who
Justice League
Star Trek
Star Wars
Anything with George Clooney in it
(I also love to watch bad sci-fi to mock it!)

I mostly post about: I've not really posted much but I'm expecting I'll post about science, books, dresses, rugby, shoes, science fiction and cupcakes. I will definitely talk about my family - mostly my husband and girlfriend. I suspect there will be much grumpiness about broken legs and plaster casts.

*walks in late* Hello, new neighbours! Please be my friend! Wait, don't leave!

Name: Mer/waketosleep (my old LJ was stripedpetunia)
Age: 29 (for three years now)

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: IG is alarmingllamas and a great place to see pointless photos of my cat; I'm active on twitter as @alarmallama and my AO3 handle is waketosleep.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a cis bi woman going into my second year of law school, because my last career decision was very regrettable, and I was diagnosed with ADHD a year and a half ago so that's been an exciting combination. I've been writing in fandom for ~15 years but between the ADHD and the law school and how much of your life can be swallowed up by trying to pay bills, I don't write as often as I used to. My other interests include TV shows, knitting and crochet, the CFL (I'm a Stamps fan), Canadian politics, cola bottle gummy candy, linguistics (that's the bachelor's degree--syntax and SLA what uppp) and video games, but of course that list is far from exhaustive because my interest is easily captured by new and shiny things. I'm on tenterhooks waiting to see who the new Chief Justice of the SCC will be (I'm hoping Justice Abella). That's what law school does to you; don't go to law school.

Top 5 Fandoms:
When it comes to creative contributions such as fic, in no specific order:
- Star Wars
- GenKill
- Marvel
- Star Trek AOS -- I'm not super engaged with this fandom anymore but I think it's the one I'm most associated with, fic-wise
- Mass Effect

I am enthusiastic and will talk your face off about a lot of other TV/games/books/etc, but my actual online fandom engagement is more limited to the above things and whatever else I've written fic for in the last 3-4 years.

I mostly post about: I've been on DW since it launched and spurred one of the first major LJ emigrations but haven't posted much since Tumblr killed journaling and my circle turned to crickets. I'd like to try and get back into it. Expect AO3 shares of new fic I write and random posts about whatever media I'm watching, with less frequent, slightly more personal posts about things like life updates/craft projects/complaining about law school and law students and the law. Some of those I lock, depending on their content. I'm also open to discussing my adventures with ADHD.

My last three posts were about: *checks* ...A Star Wars fic, a Six of Crows fic and a roundup of good things that happened to me in 2016.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I've never been a daily poster but I'm going to try to up the ante from twice a year. I'll set a goal for weekly. I respond to comments on my posts and I like to comment on your posts when I have something to say. Comment-thread conversations are one of the things I miss most about journaling.

I'm sort of trying to find something...fandom friends, or maybe just friends.
I'm looking for ppl over 18. Preferably towards my end of the age spectrum. Lgbt parents. People into femslash and people who aren't overly into m/m pairing in their fandoms. People who get social anxiety. Poets and writers.

Anyone else. I don't mind.

I'm 35, bi, genderfluid, married with a kid. I live in Wales, I work in a pharmacy and write fiction and poetry too. 

I've got five cats and four chickens.

I will always love Stargate (SG-1 and SGA) and Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY) I have passing interests in other and currently love Dragon Age, MCU, Steven Universe, Brooklyn 99. I don't write as much fanfic as I used to still have a lot of ideas peculating up there. I miss being part of fandom though I've always felt like I was on the fringes.

I ship f/f and het mostly, and I read that too but I will write anything. Any pairing. I'm either mental or gifted. Not sure which.

I love old films from the beggining to the 70s. Love MST3K. The new series was great. I love crap films, I hate reboots but I will watch them sometimes.

I have a post here that has more about me if you want to check it out.

[personal profile] kutsuwamushi
Name: Kutsuwamushi
Age: Early 30s
Country: Usually the US

Interests and hobbies: I'm a fannish person but not in a single fandom - I'm a butterfly. I like to talk about what I'm reading, watching, or playing now, instead of writing a lot of posts about the same fandom.

Outside of fandom, I'm a graduate student in linguistics who does research in West Africa, and I'm really passionate about languages, especially those outside of Europe. I sometimes dabble in writing original fiction. I post a lot about music.

Looking for:: I miss the days of LJ fandom. I have a tumblr, but it's so impersonal and it's impossible to make friends. Really, it just feels very isolating unless you have a lot of friends there already. I'm looking for people who have a similar approach to journaling on DW as me: People who use it as a way to talk about their interests, and make connections with other people that way. I don't really use my DW as a daily life blog.

Anything else: My journal is mostly open, but I friendslock some fandom stuff. I have a pretty open policy re: grant access. It's mostly just to keep any real-life friends and family who happen to discover my username from knowing too much about my taste in porn (mostly slash, if that matters to you).

Age: as i saw someone else say, 'do you remember rotary phones?' :-(
Location: red city with more places of worship per capita than any other USA city.  and i'm an athiest and queer and a masochist, so naturally we moved to this hellhole.
Gender: Male
Languages: English, ASL (not that that helps much in a journal), my Dutch is rusty, as is my old english etc.  Does perl or lisp (computer languages) count?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: been on LJ since the time of invites before brad sold it.  Love fandom, esp HP fandom but loath JKR and HP canon... if that confuses you, you may not like my journal (probably best known for meta rants, SurveyFail Ogi Ogas tentical porn, and various Snarry  including Wandless, Pigfeathers and the WIP (a bittersweet potion) thats been waiting over a decade for the next installment because spouse & cowriter bugland and I never expected to be quadruple whammied with medical emergancies).  Autistic and have Ehlers Danlos (genetic disease of connective tissue resulting in constant injuries and chronic pain).  We have a mini farm with mini sheep, chickens, service dogs, african grey parrot, elderly cat i'm surprised is still alive and a few rats (this is actually way down from what we had before medical shit storm).  financially poor, almost all my family is dead or disowned me, horrible social anxiety so no local friends, when not having a panic attack i am often depressed,  haven't painted for over a decade due to arthritis, am nolstalgic for HP and LJ fandom when meta was frequent and indepth, canon was open, there was hope it wasnt one long cheesy calvanist tract..... i have no clue why i'm filling this out as i've no clue why anyone would want to friend me.

Top 5 Fandoms: Harry Potter is pretty much it.... i cant afford comics, i have no tv, cant afford subscriptions to online stuff or movies.  The crossovers Ive done with HP are with things like Gilgamesh epic, works of Gertrude Stein etc.

I mostly post about: i havent posted for a long time so trying to find my journal voice again... likely will be meta and fic/art and complaining about how worthless i am

My last three posts were about: jkr and cultural appropiation, info search on a work of art at a local museaum, computer woes.

How often do you post? trying to get back into it, so not really sure.

How about commenting? ditto.  something i miss on other platforms that dont do this well or even discourage / prevent it.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an old LJer who came over to Dreamwidth about ten years ago, but have been intermittently active. Like many fans, the low-effort shininess of Tumblr Where Everybody Else Is (tm) sucked me in. But I miss in-depth fandom discussion and lively comment conversations on people's fics. This fandom blog is dedicated to Doctor Who; I have older DWs but won't spam you with those since they're dormant. In real life, I'm a semi-disabled writer with a host of chronic health issues and a ginormous orange cat named Pumpkin.

Top 5 Fandoms: Classic Who, Big Finish Audio Doctor Who, Final Fantasy, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek

I mostly post about: Doctor Who related fandom stuff: meta commentary, audio reviews, cons and personal Who stuff, fanfiction updates.

My last three posts were about: New chapter update on a Fifth Doctor fanfic, reminiscences about Who fannish experiences in the 80s (mostly), observations about an ongoing minor flaw in Big Finish Doctor Who.

How often do you post? Just getting back into the swing of things. Probably a couple times a week.

How about commenting? That's why I'm getting active on DW again; I miss it!

Top 5 Fandoms:
Walking Dead
Queer as Folk
Parks n Rec

I mostly post about:
My life, my health struggles, my fandoms, writing life, and three positive things. I do enough politics on facebook. FYI - Liberal.

My last three posts were about:
Settling into my new journal, my intentions for this journal, and a 2 year old post from my former LJ.

How often do you post?
I'd like to post at least weekly to 2x a week.

How about commenting?
I'm a comment junkie!

Describe myself in five sentences or less:

An introvert with many opinions which I fight to state despite being introverted. I am a qualified historian but yet to be able to put my degree to use so mostly remain a retail monkey. I'm a member of the SNP in Scotland and active in all senses whether that is being part of photo ops or posting leaflets or knocking on doors with a wide smile and a clipboard even if a Union Jack is in the plant-pot. I prefer reading factual books over fiction and take a personal pride in my cooking each night as given I'm at home most of the time I am the family chef. I am child-free and living at home while single but the love of my life is my lhasa-apso dog Nico who turns 5 in July and who was a huge factor in helping me overcome my social and general anxiety enough to function in the so called 'real world'.

Top five fandoms:
Harry Potter. Star Wars. The Hunger Games. Middle Earth. Charmed. Though I don't talk about fandom that much in my journal to be fair.

I mostly post about: My life. I have a lot of health problems so my dw is an outlet to talk about that. My dog (and my mum's two we live with) come up a lot. My blog changes from week to week. Sometimes I talk about what I'm reading. Sometimes I post links to articles I find interesting. Sometimes I post quotes. I can't claim to be consistent but I'd like to think I'm interesting. I'm a good commenter when I connect with someone though.

My last three posts:
♥ a complaint about when people take up awesome usernames and then don't use them.
♥ a link to my first graphics post in a year.
♥ a general run down of my past couple of days in the world.

How often I post/comment: I will post either every day or once every couple of weeks. It honestly depends on if I feel I have something credible to say. Twitter took a lot of those little posts away huh? I read every day so if I have something to say it would be daily but I don't always feel I DO have anything to say.

I've been blogging since forever. I've had several LiveJournals, back when LiveJournal was "in." I prefer Dreamwidth, because it's lightweight and pink.

I boast a Tumblr with thousands of followers, but none of them talk to me, so I decided to return here for the few that will.

You can find my interests in my profile. I am a super artsy intellectual--a true Brooklyn hipster. Oh, and I'm a 28 year old male who's never been kissed. I stay in my room, avoiding sunlight to prevent aging so I can make up for lost time. Someday.

Name: Nicole
Age: Very close to 30
Location: Back and forth between New York City and Upstate New York
Gender: Cis Female

Describe myself in five sentences or less:
Kind of awkward and shy, but I try not to come off that way. I love animals and wanna save them all. I've been a bookworm in the past but have fallen out of the lifestyle and I'm looking into picking it back up. It's my opinion that real life doesn't always have enough magic in it, so I tend to like fantasy/superhero genre shows, books and movies. In fannish speak, I'm a Slytherin, a Lannister, and a Noldo. I'm probably more Tina Belcher than I'd like to think.

Top five fandoms:
It's been years since I've written fanfic, but I run a Harry Potter read-along with some friends and I like to chat about fannish things with people with similar interests.
1. Harry Potter
2. The Silmarillion! Mainly anything to do with The House of Finwe. I think Tolkien seriously wrote this dysfunctional family just for me. Feanor is my dad. I love me some antiheroes.
3. DC/DCEU. I think the cinematic universe is weak so far, I still have hope! I should add that I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, but I'm so excited that the reviews I've seen have been great.
4. Marvel/MCU. I'm planning on starting a full watch/rewatch of Marvel's movies, shows and shorts very soon. I'll likely be posting all about it as I go
5. Game of Thrones. The Starks are my babes but I'm a Lannister, I think.
Some honorable mentions: I'd love to see fanworks for Bob's Burgers, Attack the Block, Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus, American Gods book and TV, Chronicle,Gravity Falls, Teen Titans, The Incredibles, Vicious by VE Schwab, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Samurai Jack, Kubo and the Two Strings, Cowboy Bebop and tons of things I can't think of at the moment.

I mostly post about: Entertainment and media that I love. Writing. Online exploits. Maybe some of my photography in the future. (I'm trying to keep politics and real life complaints out of my journal. For reference, I'll say that I was raised in a liberal politics/conservative home values household but I'm very liberal).

My last three posts: I'm new here so you'll see my friends lock post and an about me type introduction later today.

How often I post/comment: I'm trying to start with at least once a week. It's likely to fluctuate between that and numerous times a week. I comment much more often.

Gender: Male

Languages: English and Thai

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I moved to the US when I was 3 and moved back back when I was 9, so my English is good. I'm a computer engineering graduate working in software programming. I've been an avid fan of Winx Club since 2005. I'm also great at geography and editing videos :-)

Top 5 fandoms:
The only fandom I've remained active for all these years is Winx Club (it's a major part of why I got an LJ to begin with), though I've also been a fan of The Amazing Race since the beginning. Currently I'm also into post-2010 animated Disney features (plus Inside Out), Equestria Girls, and whatever my eclectic tastes happen to fancy :-)

I mostly post about: Reactions to The Amazing Race (both US and Asia editions) dominated my LJ for the past couple of years, but 1) once upon a time, I made plenty of posts about Winx and the very occasional post on my life, and 2) I used to post plenty of icons at a now-defunct LJ community (had a good knack for it too :-)) I do hope to diversify, though...

I rarely post about: Personal life, except for really big events

My last three posts were about: Reactions to TAR... You'd have to go back to early 2016 to find my last non-TAR post :-\

How often do you post?: About once a month during TAR seasons (I try to gather several eps' worth of thoughts at a time) plus occasions I'm inspired to write about other things

How about commenting?: I've never been big on commenting for commenting's sake, usually only if I have something substantial to say. I prefer my comments to be more than simply "I like it! It's pretty!"

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm Finnish Literature Major from Uni of Helsinki and I just graduated, so we're living interesting times since I don't know what to do with myself and my life after 6 years of more or less intense studying. I'm passionate reader and a book-lover. I do cosplay with my partner in crime and I've been doing that for 7 years now, so it's probably not going to change anytime soon. I'm terrible easily addicted to new things and I'm a sucker for all kinds of geeky things. LGBT rights, feminism and all that jazz. I'm pretty liberal in my views; if you're happy and not hurting anyone then I don't care what you are/what you like, it's probably cool by me. 

Top 5 Fandoms
: Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts. These are probably my main ones I keep coming back to over and over again.

I mostly post about: Daily life, what I'm currently stressing/reading/eating/planning/doing/etc. I've never written a journal in English before, so I'm not sure what kind of topics I'll tend to go with this language. But since it's pretty hecking quiet in Finnish side of this site, I'm trying my wings out here as well. I'll probably worry a lot about cosplaying and how I hate my life choices, but hey, it's all in good humor.

I rarely post about: My relationship in terms of sex life or emotional struggles. Politics. I have strong political views, but current state of many things gets me so worked up and mad I feel it's just better not to write about those things after raging about them to all your friends and family.

My last three posts were about: Graduating, what I'm currently reading, money and how I really want to get our balcony to look nice, but how it's difficult when all out windows are facing South and it's like sauna out there and everything died last year, but now we're going to prepare ourselves to this battle with some tough-ass-plants that can survive in the sunlight.

How often do I post?
: I aim for once a week but some times I write more, some times less, I don't know what happens now when I try tackling two languages at once. I'm not stressing myself about this matter, I'll write when I feel like I have something to write about.

How about commenting
?: I comment if I feel like I have something to say. :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Awkward and weird, I'm trying my best and sometimes I succeed. I trend towards quiet because I don't know what to say or how to say it and I'd like to not make a fool out of myself. (It happens anyways.) If you like anxious toe tapping and 'it made me think of you' links then come on down and see what you've won!

Top 5 Fandoms: Star Wars, Steven Universe, MCU, fandom itself

I mostly post about: .. not much right now but I'd like to change that. Locked is personal, everyday, family and friends sort of topics. Unlocked, or public, is things I do - crafting, gaming, and fanfic and fanart. (I'm not a good artist, and it's not modesty saying that, I really am a beginner and/or completely out of practice and you should expect that level prose and doodle from me. Don't get your hopes up!)

I rarely post about: .. anything that I think is really serious or important; reading other peoples' thoughts and opinions on a topic is fine but I usually don't feel confident about my ability to really talk on a subject. Posts about things like politics and related will probably be infrequent.

My last three posts were about: I don't have any at the moment! But my next post will be about art lessons and the one after that about Habitica.

How often do I post?: One to three times a week is my goal.

How about commenting?: I leave a lot more comments than I do posts; most often they're kudos or 'liked' types of comments - "kudos: i enjoyed reading this" or "kudos: i thought this was well drawn."

I rarely post about: spreading hatred and bigotry

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Friendly but snarky queer whose children are her cats and really, really likes robots and occasionally writes fics. Have no patience for the performative purity culture bullshit that's commons nowadays seeing as all it's done is allow abusers to pretty up their abuse with SJ terms. I'm besties with Decepticats!

Top 5 fandoms: Transformers, Iron Leaguer, Voltron, Destiny, Horizon Zero Dawn Edited to add: ACTUALLY THE TWO GAMES AREN'T EVEN IN MY TOP 5 I'M SORRY. It's actually Within the Wires and Alice Isn't Dead, I fucking love these podcasts and need more people to gush about with them.

I mostly post about: Everything.

I rarely post about: Unfortunately... I overshare so I don't really know how to answer this one.

My last three posts were about: Daily life, getting back into journaling after being used to fast and onsensical pace of twitter and tumblr... the cruise I'm currently on. >.> So i may be slow to answer comments!

How often do you post?: Trying to get back into the habit and shooting for at least once a week.

How about commenting?: I can be shy about commenting on new mutuals' posts! But rest assured if there's a fandom related thing or quite literally ANYTHING are archaeology/anthropology I will probably appear in your post to nerd out.

I mostly post about: I’ve fallen out of the habit of posting after years away, but I’m trying to post about a combination of daily life (and my - fingers crossed - future move), fannish stuff, including fic, headcanons, and meta, and book/movie reviews. Linkspams, sometimes.

I rarely post about: Politics. If I think too much about the current state of the world I’ll start screaming and never stop.

My last three posts were about: Star Wars fandom meta, squeeing about the Pens winning Game 7 of the series against the Caps, a general State of the Tam post.

How often do you post?: Like I said, I’m out of the habit of posting, especially after years on Tumblr, but I’m trying for about a post a week, minimum.

How about commenting?: I like to comment a lot! I’m trying to be more active, especially since I’ve fallen out of the habit - if you post something interesting, I’m going to at least try and respond, assuming I have something relevant/intelligent to say.

Name: ziggy

Age: 26

Location: Florida

Gender: agender

Languages: English. My Spanish has deteriorated greatly over the years.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: A friendly nerd. Queer and loving it. Obsessed with cats, robots, and coffee. Thinks waaaaay too much about everything. Is not good at introduction posts or complete sentences. ;)

Top 5 fandoms: Transformers, Star Trek, Voltron, Overwatch, One-Punch Man

I mostly post about: Daily life, typically, which will involve a lot of chatter about work and any mundane thoughts I want to get out. Writing as well. Probably also comics as I read them. I've been wanting to work on doing proper reviews/slightly more in-depth reads, so why not. :)

I rarely post about: ...I dunno? Fandom drama I guess? Not that I don't have plenty to say about it but I tend to just tweet & RT about it if something is getting under my skin.

My last three posts were about: Writing & setting up my writing community, work babble... there was a short post about my coming back to DW. Before that it was more of the same, lol. Comics and work. I live a pretty simple life.

How often do you post?: When I was in the heydey of LJ and stuff I would post a couple of times a week up to a couple of times a day. It just depended. I'd at least aim for a few times a week, if not daily posting. :)

How about commenting?: I like to comment a lot! I haven't been lately since I've added a bunch of new people and I suppose I'm sort of just... figuring out where to slip in. There's that thinking too much thing I mentioned above in action.

I really used to love LJ before the big fade-out some 7-8 years ago and I've missed it a lot as it was. Connecting with people based on 1) text and 2) interests, having interesting discussions with people I've never met, and being able to easily determine which content to show to which group of people ā€“ that was awesome. I strongly hope DW is going to be as active as LJ once was. For the past several years I've been using my LJ account as a diary, but looking forward to using my DW account as a tool to interact with people.

Name: Raino

Age: 37

Location: Northern Europe

Gender: Female

Languages: I'm mostly writing in English. Occasionally a vent in Finnish.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Speculative and prone to obsessing about various topics from vintage romance to moon landings to antique lace machines to 9th century squatters in Tikal. Very much into science fiction. Monogamously married mom who daily interacts with others in the exact same life situation to the point of suffocating of similarity, so very interested in conversing with people who've made different life choices. Environmentally concerned and striving to make a positive impact on the world.

I mostly post about: Aesthetic observations. Far-fetched theories on cultural things. Trying to understand myself or other people. Particular obsession of the moment.

I rarely post about: stuff I could put on Facebook ie something that's readily connected to my day-to-day life.

My last three posts were about: Enjoyable feeling of being a foreigner during a recent trip, some bitching about other people's parenting (this is the first and hopefully last time to do that, so please don't worry it's my main interest!) and some thoughts about aesthetics of smoking.

How often do you post?: irregularly, a couple of times a month.

How about commenting?: Yeah sure! I've got so much pent-up commenting energy!
