[personal profile] we_protect_each_other posting in [community profile] 2017revival
Did this a few months ago. Trying again. I have become a more active poster, but only by a bit. I have been rewatching things, adjusting to a new job, and so on, so it felt time to do it again.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a long-time internet citizen with too many fannish interests to count. I'm a high school English teacher in my first year of teaching, so I'm constantly exhausted. My commute to work is so long that it's having an impact on my health. I'm 26 and employed but live with my parents and dogs. I'm sometimes too much of an open book online, but I'm an introvert.

Top 5 fandoms: Stargate SG-1. Avatar: The Last Airbender. Amorphous DC stuff including Young Justice, Wonder Woman, and Arrow nostalgia at the moment. Always Doctor Who. YouTube stuff?

I mostly post about: Screams into the void, be they about fandom thoughts that I have no other outlet for or things about my real life I don't want to directly put in anyone's lap. Also tons of Dear Author Letters because I have an exchange addiction.

I rarely post about: I don't actually post about politics and religion often, but I don't shy away from them either.

My three last posts were about: Two Dear Author Letters and one post about how terrified I am to return to work on Monday.

How often do you post?: A few times a month at least since I started making an effort, sometimes more with motivation.

How about commenting?: Every time I go through my reading page, I try to find at least one thing to comment on unless it's redundant. I don't always succeed, but I am a big proponent of reciprocity of interaction for fanworks and am a generally supportive person when I can be.

Three of your five sentences or less are me, except I'm 27 and I have a cat. Similar DW habits, too. Wanna give it a go?

I'm also a long-time internet citizen with too many fannish interests to count, and I like most of the fandoms you listed. Do you mind if I subscribe?

Hi! I just added you here and on AO3. You seem like an interesting person and someone I'd enjoy following. I found it interesting how you included polyamorous threesome as an option in your Dear Author letters, because a lot of people feel like that's "cheating" somehow, when instead it can be the more interesting option.

I think you're completely right. And in fact you reminded me that I once wrote a Firefly fic with an OT3 of Simon/Kaylee/Inara: http://archiveofourown.org/works/9133750 .

Hey. You seem really neat. I'm 23 and I love Avatar The Last Airbender. Toph is my favorite character. I'm adding you. Add back?

I miss SG-1. Netflix and Amazon don't carry it any more. I think it's on Hulu .. but then I have to deal with commercials (which are painful to binge watch shows)!

It may be time to Plex the series.

It's a server that you put your movies/videos/photos on and then you can watch them from a tablet, phone, roku, laptop, etc. If you have friends with a Plex server, you can add each other and share libraries. I have it running on an old computer.

I'm also a high school teacher, and English is one of my teachable subjects (in fact that's what my degree is in), though I am currently teaching something else. I tend to change teaching assignments quite often - not by choice, it's just the reality of where I am (Ontario, Canada, extreme surplus of teachers, many long term occasional positions required before being able to obtain a permanent position), so while I have been at it for a while, almost every year feels somewhat like the first year of teaching - in some aspects, in others I can definitely draw on my experience by now - and I can totally relate to the exhaustion factor. I am also an introvert and once in a while I really open up online. Friends?

PS: I don't like to put too many details on myself in open forums like this, but now that I granted you access to my journal, you can click on the "introduction" tag to learn more about me.

Four out of five: SG1, DC, DW, YT, English teacher, introvert, posting (hopefully now with more motivation!).

Currently writing superbat WIP and blah blah-ing about vidding, writing research, various fannish junk, recs and kinkmemes.

Shall we give it a go?
