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:

Hi! I am basically asexual, have no small children, like all of your listed ships, am fannish about North Atlantic archeology and the sagas of Icelanders right now, and have been mostly posting lately about books I buy but don't read in posts that are meant to be easy to comment on. Talar þú íslensku? I have somehow been collecting Icelandic learners and Old Norse speakers on my DW.

I'm highly amused at your gif choice! :)

We have a little crossover, would you be interested in adding? I've got a public intro of sorts on my journal.

Oh hey! We were friends on LJ, I didn't realize you also had DW when I started posting exclusively over here. Can I add you? :3

My name is Devin and I'm 23. I'm looking for other friends in their 20s because I feel like I would be able to relate to them better. While I'm not really into fandom, I can relate to not having children.
I'm adding you. Add back?

Hello *waves*

You had me at buying books but never read them. Some buy clothes en mass and then there is me who is constantly buying new book. As if I wouldn't have a huge stack of unread books already laying around.

I was many years on tumblr but somewhere in 2015 I decided that I need a new space to blog, simply because I missed it so much to interact with others. I find it hard to keep contacts on tumblr. I made myself a new (sadly pretty inactive) home at LJ when I decided in 2016 to join here.

Besides from being a fannish person (mostly kinda obscure fandoms) I love to write (and whine about it when something is not going right). In general I blog about whatever I find worth sharing.

No big deal :) I watch time fly away and wonder how it is possible that in one week there is already christmas .__.
I am not usually every day here with my personal journal, but on a daily base with my rp accounts.

Indeed. And it bugs me so much that you can not open the chat in a seperate tab. Such a tiny messenger reminds me of the good old days on myspace xD

Hands down: This site was somewhat great, it had everything and was easy to navigate.

A good way to end a week. And next year will start on a Monday Oo
I have Christmas on the 24th too.
If you never know from where your followers/watchers/whatever are ... on chritmas you know it xD
Some are on the 24th: Merry Christmas and the rest is like "Dude -.- Chritmas is tomorrow"

In general this site acts weird in the last time. Just received a note when I wanted to log in, that my layout is somewhat suspicious and also my url and password and that i should re-do the pw because otherwise I couldn't be able to access my journal xD

I am not sure what freaked me out the most, the fact that I had the layout for years and that they didn't cared to send me these informations via email or the stupid heart at the end of their regards xD
(it was the heart I confess it)

When LJ had the really active years I was active on a Germany Anime/Manga site and also on dw. So I missed all the fun that was there D:

Hi! We have some overlap in fandoms, posting patterns (though I am trying to post more regularly), being in academia (though I am doing a PhD in English lit) and seem to both love history. you mind if I friend you? *hands over cookies*
