Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a small gay who likes cats and musical theatre. I work in research and I pretty much spend my days experimenting on old people (AKA doing drug studies on Alzheimer's patients). I spend too much time obsessing over Broadway, Sutton Foster, Marvel, my cat son, and board games. Luke Danes is my spirit animal.

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter, MCU, Carmilla, Gilmore Girls, Younger
I mostly post about... Mostly real life and stuff going on with me. I always say about 95% RL, 3% memes, 2% fandom.
My last three LJ posts were about... My Flist Friday post (this week was about what you would do/who you would be if you were in the HP world), work related stuff about getting the flu shots and my boss giving me presents, and doctor/health related stuff.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try and post about 5-6 times a week, and I usually try and comment every day on my flist, but I've been pretty bad at that this past month. I'm hoping that with the holidays coming up, I'll get back to my normal commenting groove because interacting with my flist is pretty important to me! ♥

Name: Katie
Age: 34
Location: Upstate New York
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Goodreads

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an academic librarian from upstate New York. I'm an introvert who finds joy in theatre, reading, travel, national parks, mid-century modern design, craft beer, goats or llamas, crafts (knit/crochet mostly), museums, historic houses, history, Netflix binge watching, hiking, geocaching, food/cooking (I've been on a keto diet trying to lose weight) and penpals/mail/postcards.

Top 5 fandoms: I like things, but the concept of fandom has never really clicked with me. Some things I really like include Lord of the Rings, Hamilton (and maybe that could be expanded out to New York theatre in general), mail (from Postcrossing to stationery or stickers to penpals) and Disney (Disney parks, Disney movies - especially Disney/Pixar)
I mostly post about... Whatever's been going on in life. Sometimes it'll be fun travel stuff. Sometimes it'll be librarian-centric stuff. Sometimes it'll be boring, average, every day stuff or recipes, with an occasional DITL post thrown in for good measure. I try to include photos where I can.
My last three LJ posts were about...I've been doing a writing prompt thing for December, so this is the one month where summing up my last three posts isn't the greatest indicator of what you'd get with me - but I've got plans for the next week, the Baby Foot peel, things to do in 2017, cooking, and snow.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I'm forever trapped in the college semester cycle of time, so during the semester, once a week or so. I'm a horrible commenter; comments tend to go the way of posting when life gets really busy (especially when most of my LJ time is when I'm half asleep before bed and I usually go with no comment before a nonsense comment). I do try to get to know people on my FL and do comment when I have something to say (and the brain power to say it) - I think probably half of my FL would say we're real life friends by now and comment back and forth when we can and the other half have their fingers lingering over the remove button. No drama and if we're not clicking; no hard feelings for hitting the remove button later on.

Name: Behind flock because I'm weird.
Age: 31.
Location: Maryland.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I'm authorbynight on tumblr, but I hardly ever update it. It might have actually been a whole year - at least.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm the sort of person who dances to the music in stores when no one's watching. However, I stop as soon as I realize someone is, but am trying to care less because I think the world would be a better place if we all danced freely. I'm artsy and quirky and occasionally snarky, and love LJ for allowing me to be those things.

Top 5 fandoms: I guess if I separate Harry Potter from the new Fantastic Beasts movies that's two, Buffyverse, Firefly and Parks and Recreation. I wouldn't say I post about them a lot, though.

I mostly post about... Social commentary, parodies/satire, meta/reviews/reaction posts, I have a blog-within-a-blog entitled "Shit My Browser Says." I post a bit of my everyday life as well, but not excessively.

My last three LJ posts were about... "Frivolous lawsuits" not actually being all that frivolous, a mixed bag entry that included an address etiquette question and some (very) brief thoughts on rewatching The Office, and a post contemplating my lackluster love life.

How often do you post? How about commenting? A few times a week at least, often once a day or every other day.

I'm not sure how often I comment, but I do try. Sometimes I have trouble knowing what to say, but I'm trying to be better about that.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:

I've never actually figured out how to post those in comments.
Hi, I am interested in social commentary myself regardless of what position on any given issue; that said, I'm a moderate Independent (I even voted for an independent candidate in the recent election.)

Also, I'm a fan of the satire comic strip Rhymes with Orange.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Married with two puppies and zero children. Currently trying to figure out how to have a chronic migraine diagnosis and not crawl back into the depths of despair. My degrees are in psychology but I'm not working right now and idk what I wanna do with my life. I have 1400 fandoms and they rotate on obsession levels depending on my needs. Hobbies include sarcasm, capslock, binge watching shows I've already watched, bullet journals, tattoos, coloring and cross stitching.

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter (books much more than movies), Parks and Rec, Community, Buffy/Angel, Friends, Sports Night, Agents of SHIELD (I KNOW THAT'S MORE THAN FIVE WHAT)
I mostly post about... stuff going on in my life - usually things that I need to sort out or vent or rant for no good reason
My last three LJ posts were about... my dogs, my migraines, a movie quiz I used to do on a regular basis
How often do you post? How about commenting? Currently, I post every few months but I'm going to try to pick up the pace on that. I am kind of a whore for comments - I love getting them and making them.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: shared with friends

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a full time academic who works most of the time and spends the rest of the time daydreaming about still being cool even though I never get out much anymore. I love my cat and my husband and most things mid-century. I'm introverted, private, and snarky but I've gradually been learning to chill out thanks to meditation and jogging. I'm passionate about my taste in music and lately it's been a lot of John K. Samson, Wovenhand, and Belle and Sebastian.

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter, Star Trek (TNG and DS9), Buffy, Discworld, and reading people's perzines.
I mostly post about... Whatever is going on in my life at the moment.
My last three LJ posts were about... 2016 year in review and two post about electrical stuff in my house
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post at least once a week. I try to comment if people have interesting things to share about their lives.

Top 5 fandoms: Wrestling, Star Wars, Once Upon A Time, Marvelverse (Movies, TV & Comics), Doctor Who.
I mostly post about... My life, work things, fandom.
My last three LJ posts were about... My Weekend Off, Closing Friday @ Work, Work & Writing.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I mostly post every day, sometimes I won't if I don't have anything really to say. I try to comment often, I read/skim posts. But I usually don't check LJ until late at night when I'm winding down from work.

Name: Sara
Age: 25
Location: North Carolina
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't use any of these.


Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I tend to look for silver linings when disaster strikes and rely a lot on humor to get through tough situations. My life as of late pretty much revolves around my fiancé, pups, friends and family and I'm perfectly okay with that as they mean the world to me. Oh, and I grew up in the woods so I'm a tad bit feral. Some of my favorite things are hiking, camping, trail running, fishing, climbing, and rafting. I hope someday to visit every national park.


Top 5 fandoms: I don't post a lot about TV in my journal, but my five favorite shows are probably: Doctor Who, Firefly, Dead Like Me, Fargo, and Lost. I'm not a big movie person, either.
I mostly post about... My journal is almost entirely composed of daily life with the occasional survey-type meme. In other words, it's all me all of the time. My daily happenings, funny things my fiancé says or sweet things he does, my inner most thoughts, recent adventures, or whatever else I can think of.
My last three LJ posts were about... A bad pun shared between my fiancé and I, a horrible migraine that I've been having, fainting and doing Christmas crafts (clearly, my life is very interesting at the moment).
How often do you post? How about commenting? Unless I'm absolutely swamped or there's absolutely nothing worth noting, I try to update daily for my own records. Writing things out every day has become a bit of a personal goal. As far as commenting goes, I check my friends list several times a day and comment when I have something substantive to add.

I'm a fledgling stage manager/actor/writer/folksy tea connoisseur/foolish wit. I live with my twin sister and take care of my 90+ year old grandparents (who live nearby).

Top 5 fandoms: Shakespeare; MCU; Steven Universe; Hamilton; anime(s) (Current anime obsession: Yuri on Ice)
I mostly post about... Grad school stuff; family shenanigans; Billy Shakes; theatre; fandom feels
My last three LJ posts were about... Mostly grad school stuff/real life things
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post about twice a month; I attempt to comment on people's entries every day, if not every other day.

I mostly post about... Day to day life.
My last three LJ posts were about... An update on life in general, going to see Rogue One, and decorating Christmas biscuits with friends.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I generally post a couple of times a week. I'm no lurker and do comment pretty often - but I don't comment for comment's sake.

I mostly post about... My life, as dull as it may be.
My last three LJ posts were about... There's only two so far. One was about a concert, and the other was just icons.

Name: Kathryn
Age: 25, soon to be 26 (on January 26th)
Location: Northern California
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have none of those

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: My name is Kathryn and I live in Northern California. I was born and raised in Ohio and spent two years going to college near Chicago before moving out to California to be with my (now) husband. I work in retail although I have been on maternity leave since the beginning of October. I gave birth to my daughter on October 14th which was also my 4 year wedding anniversary. I've been into portrait photography for 8 years and dream of one day having my own photography business (or at very least working in photography).

There's so much more I want to say! I hope it's okay to plug this but a little while back I wrote a huge "about me" post in my livejournal. It's the only public post so feel free to check it out if you want

Top 5 fandoms: Phantom of the Opera (I have been obsessed since I was 3 years old), The Office (US), Anime (I tend to prefer the romantic comedies like School Rumble, My Bride is a Mermaid, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Hetalia, ect), Dan and Phil (I recently discovered them and I'm hooked...Phil is basically my long lost British brother lol), and Once Upon A Time (my husband and I are slowly working our way through it right now and each episode has me hooked even more)
I mostly post about... Lately it's been about my daughter and adjusting to becoming a first time parent. I try to keep a variety though, and post about other things that might be semi interesting. Ultimately my livejournal is and has always been my therapy so I do a lot of ranting, emotional dumping, and soul searching. But that doesn't stop me from posting pictures I take and doing memes and surveys and other fun stuff.
My last three LJ posts were about... Oh god, lots of stuff. About a possible photography opportunity I may have coming up, about my frustrations with my husband right now, about starting birth control again, about my daughter turning two months old, about feeling overwhelmed and stressed and a bit depressed...it's all over the board.
How often do you post? How about commenting? It truly varies for both. I try to get on livejournal once a day to at least read entries from friends. I try to set aside time to comment at least once a week. How often I post depends on how much I have to say. If I'm going through something exciting or big or emotional I will post more often. But I've always made livejournal a priority so I generally post at minimum once a week but sometimes up to 5 times a week.

Age: 29 (God, that feels weird to type.)
Location: Oregon
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Goodreads, but I barely use it—I'll add you after we're friends here, since it's my Real Name and I don't want it in a public post. :P

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a graduate student in materials chemistry, wrapping up a PhD. I live with my partner and three cats in western Oregon, and I'm totally and utterly unremarkable. That's not likely to make people friend me, though, so let me add here that I have an incredibly dry sense of humor, roughly 90% of this comment is likely to be sarcastic, and I love making new friends.

Top 5 fandoms: ...fan...dom? (I'm not really involved in any. At all. No worries if you are, I'm just not.)
I mostly post about... My life, sometimes world events. Mostly my life, if I'm being perfectly honest. It's not terribly interesting, but it's mine, so.
My last three LJ posts were about... Oh lord. I leave more recent stuff public, so behold my shame: a poll asking about the new 'like' feature and whether or not people are using it; a call for people to submit their addresses for holiday cards; a post asking for people to submit holiday wishes to Just Detention International (the nonprofit working to end prison rape).
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post about once a week, sometimes more frequently if the spirit moves me. I comment when I have something to say, which seems to work out to every three or so posts for some of my friends, every post for others, and once in a blue moon for still others. It depends on how well I know you, because anxiety gets in the way (which is fucking irritaing): if I know you well, I'll comment fairly frequently. If I don't know you or you intimidate the fuck out of me, I'll probably comment every few entries if I comment at all. I always read, but I'm guilty of lurking. Sorry?

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:

I...don't really know how to answer this one, so here, have an inexplicible gif of someone swimming with what I am reassured by the title is a Mola Mola. I woke up this morning to that as the only thing I had open in Firefox. I have no idea where it came from or why. I can only assume it's important, and so I'm sharing it here.
Whoa! That Mola Mola thing is outstanding! And, yes, very important! ;)

I still need a job in the field – so if you've got a lead, I'm super interested. I knit and write and draw and keep a very cluttered house. I have three silly cats.

Top 5 fandoms: The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Knitting, Quilting, Cats
I mostly post about... I post about my real life. Sometimes fannish stuff, but really this is a personal real life journal.
My last three LJ posts were about... Catching up on my previous weeks' activities.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post at least once a week and I'm trying to post more often. I'm not as good about commenting on other people's posts; often I'm not sure what to say.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I finished uni last year, and this year have been doing some freelance editing work while trying to find a better paying job. I live with my partner and dog. I love Firefly, sci-fi/fantasy, TV/books, writing, gaming, and pineapples. I've been trying to figure out my fav Cards Against Humanity card since finding out that ellipsisms's is soup that is too hot, and so far the inaudible scream of carrots is winning.

Top 5 fandoms: Firefly, X-Files, Stargate SG-1, and whatever two shows I've most recently been watching
I mostly post about... Life things, random stuff I find online, books/TV, writing, other things
My last three LJ posts were about...
1. Life stuff/movies/books
2. 3 sentence fic for Christmas (I'm writing fic for my flist instead of sending out cards)
3. Life stuff/books/writing

My last three LJ posts were about... Real life biz.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try and post once-twice a week, and try and comment as often as possible. I used to be able to comment on every single post but real life is a demanding lady and I've been swamped of late.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a cat lady (just kidding, I only have two; no but seriously, give me the space and time and I'm a cat lady) who loves traveling and never quite manages to save money because traveling is where it's at. I'm very into turning to a healthy lifestyle lately in terms of food and fitness right now. I've also been more and more concerned about educating myself on environmental and societal issues. I teach English as a FL and I feel like I'm pretty boring. There will be no fifth sentence, or will there?

Top 5 fandoms: They tend to change a little depending on what I just watched and I'm not really into fandoms per se, it's more about things I really love at the moment. Right now, it would be: From Dusk Till Dawn, Captain America (movie version), Halt and Catch Fire, 12 Monkeys, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. But I love so many more things. A complete list can be found here!
I mostly post about... real life stuff and tv.
My last three LJ posts were about...christmas cards, tv, real life stuff which is a good indication of how I roll.
How often do you post? How about commenting? It depends. I'm on vacation right now so I post less than when I actually work. I try to post once a week and I tend to comment a lot but often, it also happens once a week in a bulk.

Age: Very nearly 40, eep!
Location: Inverness, Scotland
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Instagram: celtic_rose2312

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Almost 40-year-old Scotswoman, still trying to figure out how to do life, with varying degrees of success. Legal secretary, overthinker, amateur writer, daydreamer, introvert who somehow acquired a ridiculously busy social life, fibromyalgia and depression sufferer, occasional pagan, avid reader, fashionista, social liberal. Romantically inept, eternally sarcastic, slightly surreal, a little bit goth, hopelessly messy and permanently tired.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not really a fandom person and that's not something you'll find in my journal.
I mostly post about... My life - the good, the bad, the funny and the stupid. I also take a bunch of photos of the scenic parts of Scotland. And my shoes.
My last three LJ posts were about... Daily life stuff, my clueless ex and a whiny rant about my health and general inability to do life.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I'm trying to get back to daily posting and regular commenting, after a very up and down year.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I currently work in Healthcare IT, which is a drastic change from my former job in Accounting IT. I have a BA in psychology, but I decided I liked the IT industry a lot better(and bonus points that it pays a lot better too). I am a huge foodie, gamer, health junkie, and Netflix/Hulu binge watcher.

Top 5 fandoms: Nintendo, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, and Young Justice. I don't have much of 5th fandom right now.
I mostly post about... Mostly real life stuff. I'm currently planning my wedding for next August, so sometimes I write about that and my opinions on any good video games I'm currently playing.
My last three LJ posts were about... My former emotionally abusive job. I moved onto another job last week, which has been great so far. Sadly, I haven't had a minute to post about it.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post once a week, but with the holiday's that has been a little challenging. I should be back to my normal routine after Christmas. I read my F-list entries daily and I comment when I have something to add to the entry.

Would you like to be friends? Here's my comment :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a language geek, a translator by training and an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher by vocation. I'm a keen amateur photographer and an avid book reader. Also, a wife and a mother to a two-year-old. Travelling is one of my favourite things in the world, unfortunately I don't have enough money or free time to travel as much as I'd like.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm no longer very fannish in my journal, though I got on LJ in 2005 because of fandom. Actually, I do miss the golden days of LJ-based fandom a lot...Anyway, if I had to pick my main active fandoms these days, I'd have to go with Rivers of London, Sherlock (BBC), costume dramas, Bron/Broen (The Bridge), Line of Duty and Games of Thrones.

I mostly post about... I talk about my daily life, work, my family life and what I get up to in my free time. It's not exactly riveting stuff but it's certainly authentic. I quite often post pics, because I love photography even though I'm not a pro and I have less time to devote to it than in the past. I really like playing tourist at home and try to bring the 'explore and enjoy' mentality I have when I'm travelling abroad even in my daily life and the area where I live. I often post about books. I don't post a lot about the tv shows I'm watching, instead, because there are too many good tv shows and not enough hours in the day to watch them, let alone write about them...

My last three LJ posts were about... a long weekend away to visit a friend, a huge catch-up post on what is going on with me, a few funny snippets from my English classes (I teach teenagers).

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post at least once a week. I comment almost every day, as I check my flist daily on the go (I'm very grateful for the LJ app, no matter how crappy it is).

I suck at gifs, sorry! So I'm adding something I feel is important.
What sort of LJ experience do you prefer?: I adore reading about people's daily lives, I met so many interesting people from all over the world on LJ through the years (have been on here for over 10 years) and I think this is a truly enriching experience. Some of my best RL friends come from LJ! I firmly believe LJ has made me a better, more open-minded person. So, I'm not looking precisely for people who are exactly like me (even though a few common interests are certainly helpful). Mostly, I like LJ friends who are active and interested in sharing and making a meaningful connection.
You sound lovely! Based on what you've written, I think we'd be good LJ friends.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Simple girl from a small town with one green light. Loves her cats way too much, has dogs and loves them too. Colin Farrell flows fluently from her mouth. Blood flows through her Dr Pepper stream. And currently pouting like a 5 year old that got their favorite toy taken away that Finn Balor did not come back to Roadblock last night WWE.

Top 5 fandoms: Game of Thrones, Gossip Girl, Harry Potter (up to book 6, just started reading when I turned 31 yee haw enjoying them thouroughly though!) Law and Order: SVU annndddd Criminal Minds.
I mostly post about... How I am feeling (dealing with Fibromyalgia my good days and notso good days), silly cutesy things my boyfriend does, books I am reading and make you want to read too, music I listen to too much, things I buy at Target/Barnes and Noble (usually books and music)- I have a no posting about work rule unless a customer is a total asshat and I want you to see how ridiculous they were and what I had to go through, and WWE wrestling things I am a superfan.
My last three LJ posts were about... My ovaries and the bad roads, JFK's assassination and what I asked Santa!Dad for Christmas.
How often do you post? How about commenting? Used to be daily but lately has trickled down to 3-5 times a week unless there are birthdays. Comments I am guilty of geting way behind on, sometimes I am just too tired to come on the computer at all or I just come on to update quick and shut it down then other days I am feeling really great and I spend hours doing things and getting caught up- so I will always check in on you it just might not be right away but I value what you have to say and I do get back to you and I do see what you are up to ♥
