Name: Chris, or Shad, or the River Driver, depending on the medium
Age: Me: 37 My alter ego: 25
Location: At the hundredth meridian, where the great plains begin
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: None of the above.

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.

Life. I use LJ as a journal. I try to make it interesting, and attempt to compose good narratives. I may not always reach that goal.
My last three LJ posts were about...
A sick hamster
How often do you post? How about commenting?
A few times a month on posting. I'm working on improving. I try to comment as often as possible.

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.

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



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.

Name: Anterastilis...I played the "pious prostitute" Anterastilis in a college Latin Class production of Poenulus by Plautus. It was my first internet name (this was in the 90's) and it stuck a lot longer than I thought it would. I've been on LJ since 2001 (with a few breaks, including a heartbreaking decision to delete a few years worth of early posts). I guess I can justifiably say that I am Old Skool LJ. I was very active during the LJ Heyday of, oh, 2004-2006?
Age: 38
Location: Minnesota
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: Eh, I keep off the internet except for LJ. I'm old fashioned.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:

My profile says:
Librarian, master naturalist, board gamer, Twins fan, banjo picker, hiker, biker, Minnesotan.

I'm actually a Substitute Librarian now (by choice...hooray for being able to pick when, where, and how often I work). I love the outdoors even though I recently moved from the North Shore of MN to the Twin Cities. I still play board games and cheer on the pitiful Twins. I don't play the banjo as often as I'd like, but I love bluegrass music. I hike when I can, bike when I can, and will always be a Minnesotan. I recently graduated from a 230-hour Yoga Teacher Training and am still at the "what next?" stage. Was that five sentences?

Top 5 fandoms: Real life is my fandom. Okay okay, I am an old Trekkie and semi-fluent in Star Wars universe, but I got rid of the TV about a decade ago and prefer to read. I don't really write about any fandoms, although I do book reviews on occasion. They're the only public posts on my LJ.

I mostly post about... Daily life and working through the stuff that comes with being 38. Financial independence, gardening, travel, my freaking awesome dog Luce.

My last three LJ posts were about...

Most recent: I found out that I am on Google Maps. I am on my knees, removing landscaping rocks in the front yard. For all of eternity, when you look at my house on Street View on google maps you'll see me and my big old butt. Pictures included!
Second most recent: A quick post to express relief that my dad's heart surgery went well.
Third most recent post: Update on some Yoga Study drama, lunch with a friend, thinky stuff about mothers-in-law

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post a few times a week. I'm a horrible commenter because I usually read LJ on my phone and do not like typing on it.

I'm an LJ old timer too (June 2001, I believe) and I read your intro post and found you interesting. Will add you if that's ok!

I'm not so into Bleach anymore, but I still love the characters, and Dogs is awesome! *_* May I friend you?

Hi, thanks for commenting on my intro! It sounds like we have a lot in common (same age, no TV though I do admit to watching Netflix, not really fluent in fandom and of course ... books!). Adding you now :)

Well, SOMEONE has to be late.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I'm an INFJ, a Gemini, a Slytherclaw, a pagan, one of those goddamn liberal hippies. I'm a science teacher, though not in a conventional classroom. I'm an artist, mostly of the painterly variety, and will occasionally post pictures of my finished projects or WIPs. I tell people I'm a cranky Victorian grandma at heart, because I love cooking, am getting more into baking, I love embroidery and knitting and textile-related things in general (I really want to learn how to spin yarn on a spinning wheel someday) and I love ridiculously ornate, fussily pretty things. I also love fairytales and storytelling--I sometimes teach classes on oral storytelling where I work.

Top 5 fandoms: I don't really get super into fandom. I have things I like for sure--Harry Potter, most of the dystopian things that have come out, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, etc. I watch a lot of cooking-type shows as well.
I mostly post about... Work, travel shenanigans, love, faith-related stuff like tarot readings, etc. Occasionally bits of stories,
My last three LJ posts were about... The end of my fall season teaching, a silly little personal development, a sappy post about things I want to remember from this season.
How often do you post? How about commenting? I post between 1-3 times a week depending on time. I generally read at least every couple of days, and try to comment on entries pretty regularly. I like getting comments, I assume you do as well!

Name: Elise
Age: 33
Location: Kansas
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: goodreads mountainmamaelise

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Damn hippy, stuck in Kansas, wishing I still lived in the mountains, only it's cold there so I guess I'm okay here for now. Born in the 1980s, raised like it was the 1970s. I read a lot, I knit a bit, I have two kids who are my world, I have a goofy husband who is my rock. Heavy on the scarcasm. (Oh, you mean five sentences or less, like write complete sentences? huh. oh well.)

Top 5 fandoms: Gilmore Girls. Scrubs. ... Gilmore Girls? I don't actually care much for fandoms... I am having fun watching Ally McBeal and spotting all the Stars Hollow denizens who visited Boston in the 1990s..
I mostly post about... my family, dealing with changing career paths, sleep issues.
My last three LJ posts were about... family, sleep issues, Christmas
How often do you post? How about commenting? Post a few times a week, comment when I have something to add. I read nearly every day.

And I apparently can't work gifs. Whatever. Lorelei
Hey, we sound kinda similar. Damn liberal here, in North Carolina -- but in the mountains! Despite all you hear about NC in the news these days, my part of the state is actually pretty liberal and fun. I also have two kids who are my world and a goofy husband, sleep issues (thus this post's timing), and post about family. I'll add you and probably you will find my most recent posts a bit discouraging about how interesting I might or might not be. They're an accurate representation.

I also had the same trouble with the gif! On GIPHY I found you have to use the download link. who knew? (apparently everyone but us).

As of my writing of this, my comment on this post is the last one - page 8.

Hi! We share HP, LOTR and books. 60 books is quite impressive. I don't count mine, but I'm at about 3 per month, so far below.
