Age: 44

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an Oregonian transplanted to Texas for training that ended up staying here. I prefer monster/scifi/horror movies to anything dramatic (icK!) except sometimes there can be a little drama in my fanfic reading (as long as there's a happy ending). My life consists of my kids (at work that I take care of), and my animals (that are on my farm), singing, and some other things. :) My favorite sport is dressage, that I practice with my horses.

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter, Star Trek, Stargate (SGA&SG), Chronicles of Riddick, NCIS (before it went tits up)

I mostly post about... work, my animals, sometimes church, random stuff

My last three LJ posts were about... my plumbing (literally), Christmas card post, online teacup society pimp post

How often do you post? How about commenting? Usually about 1-2 times a week. Comment very often.

Name: David / tediousandbrief
Age: 37
Location: Chicagoland
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I only have goodreads out of those.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I live in Chicagoland and work as an attorney. I go through periods of voracious reading and then not picking up a book for months and months. I have an inordinate love of corned beef and cabbage, dislike pie, and fear bees. I love traveling, but don't do it nearly enough. I watch and follow a lot of news. Others have said about me:

"You are unapologetically you and that's admirable."
"You have a lot of old school beliefs for a liberal"
"Your exhuberant enthusiasm for corned beef and cabbage is kind of endearing! :D"

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not sure I really do fandoms. I really like Shakespeare, the news, travel, Poland, art, reading, my cat, and postcards.
I mostly post about... My life, reaction to the news, politics, sometimes postcards, films, tv, music, or other media.
My last three LJ posts were about... Reaction to news, talking about a holiday party, talking about my birthday and the week beforehand. At times I talk a fair amount about politics, how my days are going, things that happen, etc.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post most days, sometimes multiple times per day. I comment less so.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an assistant editor for a magazine and a former English major (and continued bookworm). I enjoy reading, watching movies, trying new types of food, and obsessing over the things I'm a fan of! I love going to see the bands, comedians, and authors I love live when I have the opportunity and I go to San Diego Comic Con almost every year. I love old things and creepy things. I tend to be pretty positive and agreeable most of the time.

Top 5 fandoms: Doctor Who, MCU, Sherlock, British comedy.
I mostly post about... What's going on in my real life, things I do with friends, events I go to. I also post about shows I've been watching, movies I've seen, and books I've been reading.
My last three LJ posts were about... What I did with my friend over the weekend (watched Captain America movies, mostly) and various work parties; what I did over the weekend and meme answers for an end of year meme; an old photo of me for the same meme.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post roughly once a week/four times per month, and I try to be a frequent commenter!

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I don't use my tumblr, Instagram or twitter that much. Goodreads is: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/3331021-abbey

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm not always very chatty but I think it depends on the person. I'm a worrier. I'm also friendly to everyone but I can also be reserved. I am a library clerk and I've been working there for about 10 years going on 11 years soon. I still live at home.

Top 5 fandoms:Orphan Black, Harry Potter, Stranger things, The Walking Dead and the super hero shows (The Flash,Arrow,Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow)
I mostly post about...Real life stuff. Work, family/living conditions. Whatever I'm worried about and it's just usually the same stuff over and over. I try to talk about fandom stuff when I have stuff to say.
My last three LJ posts were about...my evaluation, friends cuts (because I recently did one) and just a post to wish someone a happy birthday
How often do you post? How about commenting? Sometimes, I post a lot and sometimes, it might just be once or twice a week. It really depends. It's rare that I post more than 2 times in one day or post 3 times in one day. I comment whenever I have something to say. A lot of times, I don't know what to say. And I've been using the 'likes' (the hearts) a little bit.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a practical nurse who works at a sub-acute unit. I like learning about people from different cultures and backgrounds. I love food and drinks (tea, wine, beer, cocktails), I think I am a good person. My friends would say I'm understanding, patient, and weird. I like snail mail or email from time to time.

Top 5 fandoms: Oh my gosh.. Many to mention on this one. I'm interested in many things but not too invested enough to be a fandom. I have so much on queue too but I do like: A Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Office, Parks and Recreations, Star Trek (trying to finish it), a bunch of retro anime, and more nerdy things. Dystopian books or shows, Marvel (Xmen, Avengers, Deadpool).. I'm trying to get into more so share me! I'm open
I mostly post about... Life, work, reflections, thoughts. I'm not the type that would post about a day to day life thing (from what I ate in bestfriend or if I showered.. you get what I mean haha).
My last three LJ posts were about... a thought dump about my parents, work life and my boyfriend, and a photo of a hiking day.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I comment more than I post. I post a minimum of once a week. Maximum 3 times a week. Sometimes more than that. I do read from everyday to every other day or two. I usually say if I'm in a hiatus that would last a certain time. I'm an active commentor and I do my best to get to know my friend list. I believe that one day, I might stop Livejournal and could make lifelong friends. Who knows!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a whackadoodle consistently running on too-little sleep. I am the marketing person for a manufacturing company by day and watch far too much tv by night. I'm fully invested in the Teen Wolf fandom and dabble on the side in a few others. I'm an introvert with extrovert tendencies and I dgaf what other people think (most of the time). I very rarely feel like an adult.

Top 5 fandoms: (currently involved in) Teen Wolf and Shadowhunters. That's all I've actively involved in. I watch A LOT of other things and hold some of them very close to my heart but I don't pursue fannish activities in them.
I mostly post about... RL and fandom mixed together usually. For instance, right now I'm doing a fic a day for my holiday advent calendar and so sometimes I toss a couple lines in about my RL at the start but for the most part it's all fic until after Christmas.
My last three LJ posts were about... Fic and a promo post for getyourwordsout, I think.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post daily but at least a few times a week, for sure. I comment when I can contribute something to a post in the way of discussion. I read my flist in its entirety but sometimes I honestly don't have the slightest idea what to say and don't want to post empty platitudes all the time.

Location: Northern California
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have a Goodreads account but almost never update it. Had Tumblr for a while for promoting my Etsy shop but gave it up. I'm on Twitter to promote.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Cranky liberal in the reddest county in California. Retired government drone. Appallingly domestic yet literate and reasonably smart and informed. Terminally unhip.

Top 5 fandoms: I don't get this fandom stuff, or fanfic either. There are things I am interested in but I don't obsess about them. (See "cranky" in description above.) You can read some of my interests on my profile page.


I mostly post about... my life and times.

My last three LJ posts were about... a dinner party, politics, the social life of our neighbor.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I *try* to post several times a week. When I post, I also comment.

Meh. Don't know how to insert a GIF and don't feel like looking it up right now. But here's a photo.

Age: 25
Location: Also tend not to share.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: LJ, for posting fic, as if it were still the early 2000s

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a pretty chill lady who enjoys sentence fragments and ellipses. I like to read, write, and draw. I speak a a few languages, picked up through family, travel, friendship, and my BA studies. I enjoy Netflix, nature, the city, learning new things (dressmaking, illustration, languages, microbiology, etc.) and adventures, particularly the kind that involve walking and talking buses or trains to new places and meeting new people. I can also be pretty enthusiastic about fandom [and other things], so I'm hoping to find people here to fangirl over things--and make some new friends!

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter (Movie & Books), Dr. Who (New/Nu Who), PotC, and my current shows West World, Parks & Rec, and any historical drama I may be watching at the moment.
I mostly post about... the fanfiction I'm writing, as it is a fic centric blog...that I rarely update. I'd like to post about the shows I'm watching, or books I'm reading. But I haven't really gotten that far yet.
My last three LJ posts were about... The Dr. Who fic I started writing.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I've been on hiatus. I would like to post at least once a month, ideally once a week. I comment more than I post.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
I am an avid reader too. I tedn to blog about every book I am reading. I started as a writing centric blog too but slowly began to use the blog as just normal blog. But writing is a returning topic once my muse decides to bless me with an idea that I really write down.

We also share the love for traveling and learning new things. I really want to learn a thrid language or to say it better a forth and try to get better at the thrird.

May I add you ?

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a full time carer for my mother, with my own many and varied health issues on top. I have a cat named Castiel, a small garden that I hope to grow most of our vegies in, and am currently learning to drive. I feel that I am constantly exhausted, though I have no idea if this is true or not or my body/brain is playing a trick on me. Sometimes, I write long pieces of fiction.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not really into fandom per se these days, but having said that... Babylon 5 (now and always), Star Wars, Vikings, Versailles and Elementary. ETA: Supernatural!
I mostly post about... Life, the cat, the garden, hobbies, films, books, food, cooking, historical re-enacting, music.
My last three LJ posts were about... 1. A day in the life post, 2. Byzantine historical re-enacting of awesome, and 3. incredulity.
How often do you post? How about commenting? When I have something to say, which fits both. Sometimes, it's several times a week, sometimes it's twice a month. I don't think that the frequency of posting and/or commenting is a reason to ditch someone--I have LJ friends who haven't posted for years, and every so often one of them pops up and posts and it's lovely to see them again. /LJ friendosophy.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a big-hearted person, clumsy, emotional, lunatic and open-minded. I am a die-hard fangirl of Supernatural and Jared Padalecki. Just because I love Jared the most, it does not mean that I do not love Jensen and Misha, too. Assbutts! I love making new friends.

Top 5 fandoms: Criminal Minds, Gilmore Girls, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural.
I mostly post about... My daily life, my family, my fandoms, my friends and my health problems.
My last three LJ posts were about... My first few days at my friends' house (since I was on vacation at their house) on December 9th, a fear of going outside in the dark accomplished on December 15th and a dream that I had about Jared on December 17th. P.S. Sometimes I leave a gif on the entry I am writing. Sometimes I do not. It also depends of my mood.
How often do you post? How about commenting? It depends of my mood of the day, really. I can update several times a day, then not saying a word for a few days, and then coming back. But I am on the website every single day and I do leave comments if I have something to say. And no, if I did not leave a comment, it does not mean that I have skipped your entry.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Aspiring sound technician/engineer still trying to figure myself out. I will stick up for all the ladies canon screws over. I over empathize with bitter women with terrible mothers. I'm terrible at describing myself.

Top 5 fandoms: DCTV (Supergirl, Flash, Legends), Shadowhunters, The Librarians, Dragon Age, a very specific Once Upon A Time constructed mostly from headcanons and the show's wasted opportunities (it's complicated).
I mostly post about... Life updates & occasional show/movie/etc thoughts.
My last three LJ posts were about... Life updates because I've... actually only posted five times in the past year.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to do it regularly for commenting, every two weeks for posting, but I can't guarantee that and I have been in a bit of a rut this past year and I'm hoping making some new friends will spur me into posting more.

I'm opinionated and love discussions. I work as a cleaning woman, and the light of my life are my sibling's children.

Top 5 fandoms:Supernatural(Dean), Teen Wolf(Scott McCall), Marvel (Spider-Man, pre OMD), In the flesh (Kieren), Star Wars (Finn)
I mostly post about... depends what I'm in the mood for, personal, fandom, fic, art, betarequests ;-)

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: nothing to share there I guess, I don't do facebook either, I'm here :)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a social worker and work with offenders, which can be quite challenging. To equal the stressful job I love listening to music, play games or binge watch stuff. I'm so bad at describing myself, ugh

Top 5 fandoms:
Musicwise I'm still a punk at heart, Stiff Little Fingers all the way! I love binge watching shows: Gilmore Girls, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Sons of Anarchy, Suits, etc. I used to read a lot but somehow hardly find time for that anymore.
Totally adore my two furballs, there's always some pics of them thrown into the mix and how they keep me sane! I love everything British, the language, the culture, the weather even... the politics not so much. I totally adore Scotland.

I mostly post about...
Day to day things really: my job and the stress levels it comes with but also the good stuff that happens, my two adorable cats, the usual bs with family and stuff that I find interesting. I do like politics as well but won't rant about it though.

My last three LJ posts were about...
my fear of dentists (I broke a tooth the other day), my annoyance with dad not being able to spell his only grandkid's name right, me going shopping finding shinies.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I try to post at least twice a week, sometimes it's more sometimes it's less. I do comment a lot, because I appreciate getting comments and starting a conversation. What I can't do though are huuuge posts, I don't have the attention span to read through them all :(

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
I'm barely awake, can't find a gif right now but it'd have been a cat one :P

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Weird - I seem to get stuck at this question :) Translator/interpreter by education, part-time/freelance illustrator and backstage assistant in actual life. I'm into nature, gardening, cooking, reading, etc. I do live with my mother and our animals. My interests list on my profile might tell you much more :)

Top 5 fandoms: None... If you seek a fandom containing journal, that's certainly not me I'm afraid.

I mostly post about : Daily life. This can be about moods, what I did, what I wish, family matters, people around me/friends, the weather, our animals, occasionnally my famiy history research, politics about what goes on without getting into deep analysis... I try to add photos whenever I can.

My last three LJ posts were about : 1-The cold these days. 2-What happened in Turkey 3-My day, these three could have been merged into one post as I posted them all yesterday.

How often do you post? How about commenting? Lately I post once every day and I'll try to keep it that way. Sometimes I can be skipping one day or two, or like yesterday put different things in different posts in one day. I try to comment as much as I can, but then, that only happens I feel I really have something to say. So I'm an average commenter lets say.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm an introverted and somewhat socially awkward lesbian who works in the deli/fish section of a grocery store. I'm a tv nerd and a multishipper. I'm interested in a bunch of stuff (just not super knowledgable of them (yet)) such as science, mythology, history (this is not stuff I talk about in my journal though), and I'm currently taking maths classes. I'm pretty interested in and passionate about lgbtq+ representation in the media (tv/movies mostly) which is something I got pretty into this year, somewhere around March 3rd *ahem*, aaand although I have yet to properly get started on anything, I have some vague ideas about stuff I want to do (books, scripts). Also, dinosaurs are cool.

Top 5 fandoms: Wynonna Earp, Ghostbusters (2016), Leverage, The Librarians, Supergirl. (though I watch a whole bunch of shows so there's a lot more I like. But those are the ones that are my current faves)
I mostly post about... My life, shows I watch, Ghostbusters, Kate McKinnon, lgbtq+ stuff. *shrugs* It's pretty random and varied. ^^
My last three LJ posts were about... The Librarians, work/Back to the Future/Holtzmann/iZombie/Grimm (it was a mixed thing xD), some biphobic thing I happened upon at facebook and was annoyed at so I babbled about that + Dyke & Fats because it's my fave not-really-real cop show xD
How often do you post? How about commenting? Fairly often. I'd say daily on average, but some days I may not post at all while others I will do multiple posts. I'm okay when it comes to commenting, but I could be better, and that's something I'm working on.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: I've only been awake for a couple of hours so not much have happened, and I'm not leaving for work for another three hours so it's pretty nice.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:I'm a tea-drinking rain-loving tree hugger. I love words and books and libraries and trying to make things out of words. Where most people have an emotional support dog or cat, I have an emotional support betta fish. I'm a freelancer and solopreneur who loves spending my free time reading, walking, listening to symphonic metal and cooking. And I share my mind (and life, and journal) with my headmates, and always have.

Top 5 fandoms:Lord of The Rings, Superhero shows and movies, Sense8, Star Trek and Harry Potter are all things I enjoy watching but I've got to admit the concept of fandom sort of eludes me. I watch it, I like it, I might post about it (not often) ... and that's pretty much it?
I mostly post about...Everything! Daily life, cooking, spiritual musings, self development, things that made me laugh, my partner, my headmates ... anything that comes to mind really.
My last three LJ posts were about...I posted about how much I love Nightwish, one of my headmates posted a funny anecdote about starting to read a book I rec'd him, and another posted about a talk she had with my husband about whether our betta fish is, in fact, a Nightwish fan. Honestly, that's a pretty representative sample of the kind of things we post on the daily!
How often do you post? How about commenting? Most days and often several times a day. My headmates and I all tend to have our own posts we want to make, so it's not unusual for us to make 3 or 4 posts in a day. I read my friends list every day and comment when I have something to day (which honestly, is quite often!)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a writer by day, railroader by night, DueSer by morning, Browncoat by evening, and all-around cackling fanboy no matter what time of day it is. In fact, I've been a fanboy for as long as I can remember. Once you're my friend, you're set for life until you show me that you don't deserve my respect, then goodnight Josephine. I'm one of those writers whose characters talk back to him, and in some cases, even tweet what they're thinking. You may find yourself talking to me or to my main character/alter ego, I can never be sure which one will be on the surface.

Top 5 fandoms: Due South, Firefly, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Space Battleship Yamato 2199
I mostly post about... fanfic, and being jilted for life.
My last three LJ posts were about... Public posts: last three parts of an epic Due South fanfic I wrote for the show's 20th anniversary. Private posts: Internal dialogues with my characters.
How often do you post? How about commenting? Not very, mostly because so few of my friends are on LJ anymore.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I spend a lot of my time reading. I'm working on a novel. I love to travel. I live right in the nation's capital which can be fun at times and terrible at other times (like during the election). My current job is mostly office management stuff but I'm a librarian by training and calling.

Top 5 fandoms: My obsessions of the moment are Skam, Yuri on Ice, and Shameless. My top 2 "forever fandoms" are Doctor Who and Dragonriders of Pern.
I mostly post about... Daily life, work, what I'm reading/watching
My last three LJ posts were about... TV, summary of my week, the trip I took last month.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I try to post and catch up on comments 2-3 times a week. I usually read daily.

Name: Rachel
Age: 30s
Location: UK
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: You get the magic keys to these if we're friends!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Academic, writer, feminist, wife, mother. Food fanatic, make up maven, vintage vixen. I love: poofy skirts, glamorous shoes, sunshine, nail varnish, dismantling the patriarchy, procrastinating. I hate: misogyny and other -isms, fatty meat, short dull winter days.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm not really involved in fandom these days! The last one I was really in was Game of Thrones, but that all got too, well, awful to stay invested in. Shows I've recently loved, thanks to Netflix and Amazon Prime, are House of Cards, Jessica Jones, The Man in the High Castle, Narcos. My first online fandoms, way back when, were The 10th Kingdom and Buffy! I don't watch tons of tv or film. When I can, I get to the theatre. I love modern ballet especially!
I mostly post about... Family life, everyday adventures, cooking, the occasional book/movie review, a little bit on politics/current affairs...
My last three LJ posts were about... A friend's visit; assorted family bits and bobs; a relationship meme about how I met my husband.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post far less than I used to - once a week at most. But I read my friends list every day and am pretty good about commenting.

Oh, btw, I will pretty much always friend people back - as long as they say why they're friending me so I can see you're not just serial adders! Last time I did one of these a bunch of people added me without explanation, and it turned out unsurprisingly we didn't have much in common... So if you just add me without commenting I probably won't add you back!
The fact that you love the 10th Kingdom and want to dismantle the patriarchy makes me think we should be friends :) My info is here.

I'm guessing this was for me! Yes, let's do it :)
