Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I hate describing myself, but the basic summary is "mid 20's university student on placement who has no idea what to do with herself"! With fandom I am much less active than I used to be but I love chatting about it and sharing the things I love. Animal lover, please ask me about raccoons and dogs. Enjoy writing, but my writing is mostly made of "cool" ideas I have and then never expand on.

Top 5 fandoms: Persona (as in, basically all of them, I guess P1 is the one title I don't have super strong feelings on), Overwatch (primarily of the "I play this a lot and like pretty pictures" variety), Tiger & Bunny, Mass Effect trilogy, Bojack Horseman (although I guess this is less of a fandom and more my feelings)
There's also a lot of stuff I've watched or played that don't think I'm interested in fandoms for a lot of them. If it's on Netflix or has been cheap enough on Steam in the last year or so, maybe I've given it a look and enjoyed it ha.

I mostly post about: video games I've been playing, animals (I'm seasonally working in wildlife rehab and LET ME SHOW YOU MY BABIES), stuff that's happening irl (mostly university and bf + why being in a different country sucks), being emotional about TV shows 
I rarely post about: UK politics because I sometimes get 8( about it, weird/fun stuff I've found browsing online, nerd conventions and the stuff I did, board games, other "me" stuff.
My last three posts were about: "hey guys I played Persona 5", visiting Europe and working in Canada, how I don't post because I journal on paper (*sweats*)
How often do you post?: honestly, infrequently. Sometimes I am inspired to want to write a lot, but otherwise I will second guess myself and notpost for a few weeks. However...
How about commenting?: I like seeing other's posts and love keeping up with what YOU'RE doing. :D If I can think of something to say and don't feel I'm being annoying, I'll probably comment. I like discussion and I like just hearing about your day.

I didn't see an official format on how to create an introduction post but I did copy a few I've seen around.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: An avid reader of LGBT comics and novels. Always looking for a new thrilling read or for a new patreon to support. I enjoy writing and creating characters, especially if I have an ear to talk off. That doesn't mean I don't listen very well. Come chat with me!

Top 5 Fandoms: I'm currently celebrating a hiatus of most fandom life. However I do follow South Park, Check, Please!, Tokyo Ghoul, and In the Company Of Shadows.
I mostly post about: Myself. My characters and original novel ideas. How much I cannot write. My personal and work relationships.

My last three posts were about: Updating my journal and how time progresses.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I never really posted much in the last few years. Tumblr has taken most of my attention span away. I would like to leave tumblr and get back into general blogging/journaling again.

I try to always comment on friend's posts. :)

swiftsnowmane: (Unicorn at the Fountain)
[personal profile] swiftsnowmane
Name: swiftsnowmane 

Age: 32

Location: East Yorkshire, UK 
Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Originally from the midwest of the US, currently living in a tiny hamlet in the middle of the Yorkshire Wolds with my husband and our two crazy wolfdogs. Most days my life feels like some kind of surreal blend between 'the Vicar of Dibley' and a folk horror film, lol.  I'm an extremely earnest and friendly person, but also highly-sensitive, introverted, and prone to dark depressions and melancholic moods.  Above all, I love immersing myself in fictional universes, making deep readings of 'text', and discussing the stories and characters I love with others. :) 

Top 5 fandoms

~ Star Wars is one of my greatest fictional passions, and my main focus is on the character of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, his return to his True Self,  and on defending and upholding the redemptive message of the Skywalker saga. My posts cover The Prequels, The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, Rogue One, and, of course, the Original Trilogy.  (Unfortunately, I am NOT a fan of TFA or the Disney Sequels, and basically ignore everything set post-RotJ in that version of the so-called 'canon'.) Fave ships: Anidala, Obitine, Kanera, Han x Leia, and Snips and Skyguy (as brotp).

Black Sails - I happened to randomly catch up on this show just in time for the series finale, and I was completely blown away. One of the best things I've seen in a long, long time. All of the characters and relationships are extremely compelling in their own way, but Captain Flint is my LOVE.  I've been a massive fan of Toby Stephens for over 15 years now, and so, as you can imagine, this show was pretty much heaven for me. 

~ SanSan (Sansa Stark x Sandor Clegane) - one of my most beloved fictional pairings of all time, and a ship for which I never tire of reading fic and writing meta. (I also enjoy various other aspects of GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire/Dunk & Egg universe, but books only, please -- I do not watch the GoT tv show!) 

~ Bethyl (Beth Greene x Daryl Dixon) - another of my all-time favourite pairings, and the ship I've written the most fic for in recent years. I consider this ship to be a fandom in and of itself, as I have pretty much divorced it entirely from its original context in my mind. (So please, do NOT talk to me about The W@lking Dead, as the show itself sickens me and I have literally nothing to do with it anymore.)

~ Other interests and fandoms include, but are not limited to: Tolkien studies, medieval studies, folklore studies, reading/writing/editing, various and sundry period dramas, literary adaptations, and miniseries, Juliet Marillier, Neil Gaiman, American Gods, Twin Peaks (Audrey x Cooper), Kastle (Frank Castle x Karen Page), The Killing (Holder x Linden), BrBa/BCS, old movies, film noir/neo-noir, appreciating beautiful animation, MFMM, Firefly (Rayne and Malnara), The Last Unicorn, Jane Eyre, Beauty and the Beast, Tam Lin, animal bridegroom motifs in folklore, shape-shifting, fairytale illustration, art history, art museums, Scandinavia, Old English, Old Norse, Yorkshire, folk horror, folk metal, Warhorns Festival, horses, my wolfdogs (can't help but occasionally post about my fur kids), and more. 

I mostly post about: Er..... all of the above? For further details, see my 'interests' section on my profile. 

I rarely post about: Celebrity culture. Just ew.... ugh...no.  I avoid twitter and that side of social media like the plague. I also try to ignore what actors, directors, and/or showrunners say in interviews, panels, etc.  If/when I do post anything even remotely related to this topic, it is generally in remembrance of a famous person who has passed away.

My last three posts were about: Anakin Skywalker and his role in the saga. (I have a lot to say on this subject ok,  lol.) 

How often do you post?
: Not sure yet, as I am mostly active on tumblr, but I'm trying to change that and get back into this style of blogging again. So....maybe once or twice a week? I'm always around though, even if I'm not posting. 

How about commenting?: Again, I'm not actually certain, but if I'm actively engaged in a conversation or discussion, you can rest assured that I will respond fairly quickly. :)

Describe yourself in 5 sentences or less:
My primary goal in life is to become the village witch you go to for mysterious and gross remedies who'll also play a round of Overwatch with you. I'm a lesbian, a gardener, a tarot reader, a gamer, an artist, and a lot of other things. I have a vested interest in the paranormal and occult, as well as horror-related things in general.

Top 5 fandoms: Creepypasta, World of Warcraft, Homestuck Hamsteak, Music, My Little Pony & various other cartoons.

I mostly post about: My life and times, the paranormal, world of warcraft, gardening, nature, weird local folklore, being gay.

My last 3 posts were about: See above.

How often do you post: Whenever I feel like it. I do try to at least crank out one or two posts a week.

How about commenting:
I'm pretty shy, so I tend not to comment. But when I have something to say I'll usually say it. I have more of a tendency to comment on people's sad posts to reassure them than anything else.
