[personal profile] skimmed_miilk posting in [community profile] addme

I'm a 33 year old Scottish woman, trying to get my journal groove back. I'm a mum of three boys from teen to newborn, and work in healthcare but (thankfully) I'm on maternity leave just now. I mainly write about daily life, the struggles and highlights of attempting to adult and parent and be healthy as a highly strung, stressed over-thinker who doesn't like herself most of the time.  

Wow, I sound fun.  Should I mention that there will be wine, gin and chocolate?

I was obsessed with my Livejournal back in the day - I started it back in 2003 and even though I've only dipped in and out of it in recent years, writing is still very much how I make sense of my life and my mind. That's why I'm trying to reignite that obsession I once had...though it's difficult with increasing grown up responsibilities and shrinking time of my own to put pen to paper fingers to keyboard.  But I know I need the chance to record snatches of life as it flies past, and an outlet for when my mental health takes a dive. 

I swear and I like to write no-holds-barred.  I'm very liberal and support choice - be that choice of who you love, choice over your reproductive options, or just the freedom to chose what you're going to watch on telly tonight. I'm doing my Masters in weight management so I try to live healthily through fitness (like dancing and weight training, albeit on a very beginner level) and healthy eating, but more often than not find myself alone amongst the crumbs at the bottom of a packet of biscuits. I'm book obsessed (mainly literary fiction and never fantasy, chick-lit, or much sci-fi), love a good tv series (Mr Robot, Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, OITNB, Top of the Lake and Homeland have been recent highlights), and sometimes I even get out to see friends.  Some or none of this may come out in my writing.

Along with a lack of time, I guess part of why I've lost touch with my journal has been my shrinking friends list.  It's hard to make time to update when it feels increasingly like you're just shouting into a void. So I'd love it if anyone out there who is in a similar place in life or who is into similar things would like to take a punt on my journal.  I wont promise a very active journal but I am going to try, and I'm also going to try and be a good friend in return.

It's a good job I've been with my husband for ten years, because I'd suck at filling out a dating profile.  Feel free to swipe left (or is it right...? I'm not on Tinder).

hi, new and looking for friends!

Name: Teddie
Age: 30
Country: USA
Subscription/Access Policy: Feel free to friend me and I'll probably grant access, although most of my posts will be public anyway! I'm looking to make more friends, so I'd be happy to have you, but you don't need to feel pressure to grant me access if that makes you uncomfortable.

Fannish Interests: I've had a lot of the years (shoujo manga, Harry Potter, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Mass Effect, superhero comics), but lately I'm focusing mainly on Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Star Trek. I love a good space story! I recently decided to do a proper watch through of all of classic Doctor Who, so I'm having a lot of fun with that.

I like to post about: My journal is new, but I plan to post commentary and pictures as I make my way through Classic Who and the Big Finish audios. I'll also post about New Who, Star Wars and Star Trek, my personal life a little, and my cat a lot. I make icons occasionally.

About Me/Other Info: I'm a genderfluid (they/them prounouns), mentally ill nerd who likes being friendly and considerate. I have a lot of passion for my fandoms, although I can also be a little scatterbrained and flighty. I do my best to be consider of other people and to own up to any mistakes I make. I like to have a quiet, good time talking about science-fiction, animals (I love marmots and other related animals like squirrels), makeup, and toy collecting.

I'm looking to decrease my tumblr presence (too stressful for me), and increase my presence on other platforms such as this one.

Thanks for reading!

Subscription/Access Policy: Friend away! I'm always looking for new friends to talk to. As for access, I grant almost everyone that subscribes to me. If I ever lock something it'll be something really personal and might be trigger-y. I will always warn if I do post something of that nature. There's no pressure to grant me access back.

Fannish Interests: Gosh, okay, I like a lot of things. But I also need to catch up on a lot of things. That's my problem.

I watch a lot of tv. Right now I'm watching shadowhunters and deciding if I want to catch up on Teen Wolf or not. My love for Scott McCall is enternal though. 

I really enjoy pokemon,  digimon,  yugioh,  sailor moon, power rangers, tf&f series, harry potter, kingdom hearts, and classic spn. all of those were my fandoms before I ever knew what fandom meant. i am casually into new doctor who but Ten was my first doctor and my favorite era. I'm always there for the companions the most though and I love bill potts so much. i love sherlock holmes adaptations but i gotta say my favorite is elementary. i'm also into low energy video games so pretty much anything nintendo and the sims. I'm a little obsessed with the sims and the fandom it has on youtube. just a little. Superheroes are cool too! I like the mcu and dcu but i haven't watched all of it yet bc reasons. Omg star wars is a big one lately too. and the new Star Trek and hopefully the new series!! as for cartoons steven universe is like the best thing that ever happened to me probably. aaaand books!! gosh do i hope to actually start to read books. The last full thing I read that wasn't fanfiction was the hunger games.

sp in summary i love anything cheesy, ridiculous, and about friendship :D 

I Like To Post About: honestly? cute animals. cats especially. i'll post about all the things i care about and I might  do reaction posts to a show or movie etc. I hope to at least post fic or a rec or just journaling in general! I'm trying to find my place in dreamwidth after being on tumblr for so long now. 

About Me/Other Info: I'm an ace nonbinary (she/they pronouns) lesbian. I'm autistic, mentally ill, and have chronic pain & illness. I'm infp, capricorn, and a hufflepuff. 

hurt/comfort is my whole life. It's like my one true kink. I love reading it, writing it, having discussions about it, reading meta about, you get it. It's my jam. 

I'll mostly comment on stuff for a while probably. I have a strict rule that is if I see an entry/read a fic/etc I comment on it. <3

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm extremely new to DW but I have been roleplaying for years. This is awkward because I really don't like to talk about myself. I much prefer to immerse myself in whatever I'm writing and keep things mostly IC unless we need to plot. Bandom/celeb RP is my jam and often played Travis McCoy on Livejournal, as well as William Beckett and Justin Bieber. Check out my journal for more info.

Top 5 Fandoms:
2006 Bandom RP Era Music (if that counts as a fandom and yikes that sounds old)
Anime
Harry Potter
True Blood
Tie between Pokemon and Final Fantasy X


I mostly post about: Until I get comfortable here, I may not post about much. I am so used to only using journals IC that I often forget that I can have one for myself.

I rarely post about: Eh I'm an open book once you get to know me OOC. I just prefer to keep posts IC.

My last three posts were about: RP, reconnecting with long lost writing partners, and storylines for my Travie McCoy muse.

How often do you post?: In my personal journal? As needed. If I join a RP community, probably weekly.

How about commenting?: I love commenting and interacting, for sure.

Hello! Like many people, I'm a longtime Livejournaler who's working on making the switch over to Dreamwidth. But I've had my journal there since 2001--that's pretty much my entire adult life! Change is hard! In order to help me shift my focus over here instead of over there, I'd like to see if I can establish a more active group of DW-friends. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my journal.

About me:
My name is Katie, I'm 38, I'm queer, and I'm female. I'm a writer and writing tutor by profession (I write fiction and book reviews; I tutor high school students and beginning creative writers). I grew up in the Hudson Valley in New York State, and currently live in Philadelphia. I live in a very old house with my girlfriend of eighteen years and our two cats. I love to read (favorite writers include E.M. Forster, Marilynne Robinson, Virginia Woolf, Pat Barker, Ursula K. Le Guin, George Saunders, etc). I also like cooking, baking, canning, and food preservation of all kinds; hiking and bird watching; gardening; swimming; watching baseball.... I'm a rather typical introvert and lead a fairly quiet life. I drink entirely too much tea.

About my journal:
I began my LJ as a reading journal, and still often post informal book reviews and thoughts on whatever I happen to be reading at the moment. In addition to writing about books, I often post about food and the projects I undertake in the kitchen. Sometimes I use my journal to track goals. Sometimes I write about the things that are going on in my life. Rarely (very rarely) I share my writing. Sometimes I post about art, or the creative process, or a quotation that caught my attention. I tend to post about once or twice a week. There are often photos. I keep my journal friends-only, but if any of this sounds interesting to you I will be happy to add you so you can check it out. No harm done if it turns out to not be your style after all!

What I'm Looking For:
Like I said, I'm transitioning from using LJ as my main online home, and am looking for a more active friends list here on DW. I like genuine connections and interesting conversations. I'd love to meet people who share my interests, especially fellow book-nerds who want to geek out about literature with me. Outdoorsy folks, creative folks, thinkers, makers, teachers, learners.... I can't promise to be the world's greatest commenter and I don't expect you to be either, but I would like to talk to each other at least occasionally.

Say hello! Let's get to know each other!

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: none, I think?
Summary: Near to the end of all things, the High Lord of House Valeth reflects.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm fairly new here, but not new to fandom. I write fanfiction and I fandom-hop without rhyme or reason. I'm currently in a lot of small fandoms, and I love to add more, so feel free to try to get me obsessed with your favorite fandom. IRL, I'm a sleep scientist who doesn't sleep enough. I talk about my girlfriend a lot.

Top 5 Fandoms: 
I'm going to cheat, but in my defense, I am in so many fandoms...
Small video game fandoms (Oxenfree, Stardew Valley, and Primordia)
Boku No Hero Academia
The Goblin Emperor
Harry Potter (always... never hop away from this one)
Haikyuu!!


I mostly post about: Fanfiction, logic puzzles, fandom things. I'll probably start posting about my life at some point, but those won't be public

I rarely post about: politics, specifics about my work.

My last three posts were about: A logic puzzle and some fanfiction exchange/challenge stuff.

How often do you post?: Not much right now - I'm new here. But I imagine I'll be posting at least once every week, if not more.

How about commenting?: I'm good about commenting when I'm feeling social, but sometimes I don't have the energy. I like making friends and being friendly though, so I try.

3) If you were getting married in a week, who would be in your wedding party?

4) What would your wedding colours be?

5) Does marriage mean to you 'til death do us part?'

Quote from Anais Nin

Name: Destiny

Age: 26. Though I'll be 27 this year.

Location: Northern Louisiana

About Me: I started writing when I was around 10 years old though I'm sure I had always dreamed of doing it before then. I wrote intensely for awhile, but then I quit for almost ten years probably due to my ongoing battle with mental health issues. I picked writing back up in 2011 and excepting some interludes I've written steadily since then.

About My Journal: I use my journal as a sort of hodge podge of things. I've been known to post pictures (from selfies to paintings I'm viewing). I post a lot of music and my video post tag is usually used in conjunction with YouTube videos. They almost always have something to do with music. These days I use my journal to either analyze my relationships with the important people in my life or vent about the aforementioned mental health issues.

What I Write: My main output over the past months has been poetry. When I write fiction it's usually realism based. I like to write about relationships. These can include family, romantic, or friendship.

What I Don't Write: I don't really write journalism though it is something I would like to explore one day.

What I Read: Currently I've been reading a lot of nonfiction especially in relation to astrology, tarot, and numerology. My favorite genre is historical romance though I've been going through a bit of funk with it at the moment. I also love to read contemporary erotic romance.

What I Don't Read: I don't really read horror or science fiction though I would like to broach these genres one day.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I would like to think so. I've become more confident in my editing skills, but I have issues with reading longer works.

Name: Prix / [archiveofourown.org profile] failsafe
Age: 26
Country: United States
Subscription/Access Policy: It's a free-for-all unless that becomes a problem somehow.

Fannish Interests: Doctor Who, Avatar: The Last Airbender, MCU, DCTV, the new Wonder Woman movie, Type Moon, Steins;Gate, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the 100, and whatever else has caught my fancy this month. I would really like to rewatch some things I'm really rusty on, like Stargate SG-1, too!

I play video games very, very occasionally. I love Portal and recently Mass Effect.

I like to post about: Most of my journal, right now, is a series of Dear Author letters. I write fic a lot, usually for exchanges. However, I just decided I'm going to do a fandom autobiography to keep myself coming back for a while and to develop a habit. The first installment of that fannish autobiography is up now, so you can see what me rambling about myself looks like. Other things I'm likely to write about are similar to things I write about on my tumblr (only to be ignored in general) such as character arcs, reactions to episodes, fanfiction, fanfiction ideas, and random tidbits about my life from time to time.

About Me/Other Info: Dog person, Aquarius, INFP. Nightowl, chronic napper. I like monsters and space. Never 100% outgrew my emo/goth phase but also sometimes wear pink. I just finished a teacher preparation program in May. Currently, I'm looking for a job. My sleep cycle is a wreck right now due to unemployment, and I'm trying to make my life something that is a little more satisfying to me in a lot of ways. 95% of what I do on the internet is related to fandom in some way. I am a religious person, but I do not post about it except where it is relevant to any personal posts I make. I just thought you should know because we won't be good-match friends if you tend to post negative things about religion (any of them, not just my own). I'm socialist-leaning politically, but again, I try to make my action and life speak for themselves and don't really preach to choirs or blog about it that much. I'm bi but chronically single and currently mostly okay with that. I know like five-thing about CSS and HTML and might someday get into making stuff with that.

[personal profile] wickedlittletown posting in [community profile] add_a_writer

Name: Goldy

Age: Somewhere in the late twenties

About Me: Writing is one of the few hobbies that have always been a part of my life. I like way too many things and I am easily entertained so there are times when I jump from one fandom into another. Besides from fandoms I love history and musicals (returning topics in my writings too).

About My Journal: Most of the time I write about my writings and the ideas I have in my head. But you will always find the normal everyday entries here and random stuff like various questionairs, memes and so on. And this journal is still a backup of my livejournal account so there can be entries which are nearly the same (because I am not into crossposting).

What I Write: I am that kind of write that loves to write sad stories, whenever I have a good idea for one. In general I am mostly writing slash. Usually I write fanfictions but every now and then I also find myself working on something original.

What I Don't Write: School stories and stories about children (you know happy family stories).

What I Read: Thriller and crime, followed by everything about history.

What I Don't Read: Romantic books, love stories or as I like t say it "typical women's books". But also nothing about the topics where I don't write for.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Yes and I have done a lot of betareading a couple of years ago. It was a ot of fun but it was also the time where I wasn't that busy with my own writings so I could take my time and do it carefully.
