xifeng: (it seemed like a good idea at the time)
Name: Lee
Age: 37
Location: Indiana, in the Midwestern US. (This disclaimer is included because way too many people think I'm on the Indian subcontinent.)
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: My Tumblr isn't active (I'm just there to read history fansqueeing, why lie) and since my IG is a selfie wasteland I would really rather not give it out to people I don't know well. It's not illegal to ask me for it once we know each other better, though :D My Goodreads needs an overhaul as it has been a million years since I was on there.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am self-aware, snide, smart, slightly scary, and something of a workaholic. I love words and history and dead things. I basically have two modes: THIS IS INCREDIBLE, I WANT TO BATHE WITH IT AND SLEEP WITH IT AND BE WITH IT 24/7 and "lol no1curr". Sometimes I am a spaz. Sometimes I am depressed.

Top 5 Fandoms: I really don't do fandom in the conventional sense and don't make very many fannish posts. About the most fannish stuff I do is occasionally churn out some Greek mythology fanfiction (I LIEK TEH TROJAN WAR), which is under a cut so you can skip it if you don't want to read it. I'm not sure if history counts as a fandom, but the ancient world, the long eighteenth century, and Tokugawa Japan are three of the great loves of my life.

I mostly post about: Real life, in which my lolmom and my jobs play rather large roles. Mildly entertaining things that someone said or did at work. Occasionally things I wrote, if I'm okay with people seeing them. Sometimes the odd to-do list, if I'm okay with people seeing that. Things I'm reading. Occasionally pictures. Anything that comes to mind, really. I may set up some filters for religious stuff (I'm Pagan, agnostic always, currently not-very-practicing and trying to fix that), but those are opt-in and no opprobrium applies if you're not interested.

I rarely post about: Politics. Social justice (my own interests therein are things like "does everyone have enough to eat? Does everyone have a safe place to stay?", not some of the more extreme things you find on the outskirts of Tumblr). My sex life (one, that's private, and two, I'm usually single and celibate, and pretty happily so). Things that I have been asked to keep in confidence. Things that I don't think anyone needs to know about.

My last three posts were about:
1.) I had a weird dream/here's how my life is going
2.) Hello LJ friends, I am no longer going to be on LJ but you can still follow me here
3.) (OLD) I drew a thing, here is a broken image link from before I switched domain hosts

How often do you post? When time allows. I work two jobs and am at work or in bed a good deal of the time. I'm hoping to be more active here than I have been in recent years on LJ, though.

How about commenting? I comment when I have something to say, and I try to reply to comments I receive. I am not, however, the person who says "hi" or "i leik cereal" just to have something to say, and if you have an emotional investment in MASS QUANTITIES OF COMMENTS, I'm probably not your man.

Hello~!

komischkatze: (dipper)
Name: Silver
Age: No longer a teenager; haven't been for a while; simultaneously perturbed and relieved by that.
Location: On an island and north quite a bit.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a long-time fanperson who left LJ in about 2010 after 6 years and migrated to tumblr, but I deleted my blog there recently.
Trying to get a new start in fandom stuff because I miss interacting with new people and I really miss how LJ used to be (which makes DW perfect!). And I'm getting back into writing fic for my own enjoyment.
Outside of fanstuff, I'm a queerdo that's trying to maintain a positive outlook on life! And who talks a lot but has the self-awareness to put most of it behind cuts :)

Top 5 fandoms:
Right now, I'm super into Gravity Falls, The Adventure Zone, and Kuroshitsuji. My long-term favourites have got to be Pokémon, and Harry Potter.

I mostly post about: Well, this is new blog, so I can't promise I'll be consistent, but I aim to post fic, liveblogs, meta, and maybe some fanmixes!
I rarely post about: I'll not write much about my personal life, here, unless it affects me getting online (working and studying at the same time can be exhausting!). I also won't write much about real-world politics, and I'm trying to avoid fandom politics.
How often do you post: On my personal, I've been posting daily since January, but I'm not sure over here. Whenever the whim takes me, but probably at least once a week!
How about commenting: I've been notoriously shy about interacting with people in the past, but I'm trying to get past that and talk more. I welcome comments from other people, too!

Hello all!

Once upon a time, I was active in this community, and much more so on Dreamwidth. Then I took what ultimately became a years-long sabbatical, and these days, flitting on the edges.

One of my goals for 2017, is to write more, both professionally and personally. Long story short, back in November, the husband and I moved to Pittsburgh, and had to dip into our savings to pay for moving expenses. Money has since been weird.

To that end, I have started a Patreon as a way to supplement our income with my writing. Primarily, I am posting on my Urban Fantasy novel, and occasionally, poetry.

Http://Patreon.com/srmaclin

Pledges start at as little as $1/month. There's some nifty perks and stretch goals in place.

Plus! Let me know you linked from Dreamwidth, and there will be a welcome perk thrown in!

Hi!

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
Writer and GIFmaker.  I like to think/talk about narratives/characters. Married with two daughters. I love to travel, learn new things and eat good food! I want to write a YA novel one day. 

Top 5 Fandoms:
Right now, probably Star Wars, Agents of Shield, The Originals, MCU and Kimi no na wa|Your name.

I mostly post about:
Fandom! TV and movie trailers, spec, spoilers and reaction posts, fic and icons I make, occasionally meta.

My last three posts were about:
A fic rec, spoilers for The Originals, an AoS sneak peek and squeeing about a fic exchange; AO3 stat meme and A picture post about silly seasonal snack food in Japan

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I post every couple of days. I tend to comment on fandom posts, less so on personal posts unless I've seen you on the f-list/circle for long enough that I actually feel like I know you.

Age: 27
Location: Spain, mostly. I travel Europe a lot, esp UK. Hoping to hit the US (LA) later this year.
Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: [twitter.com profile] cherryroad (private) + [twitter.com profile] lixhewett / lixhewett @ IG / [pinterest.com profile] aclassicnotion / goodreads / [archiveofourown.org profile] summerstorm and [tumblr.com profile] aclassicnotion but I’m not posting on either very much. Mostly just lurk.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:
I’m a sort of self-employed freelancer with a dream of being a photographer full-time who currently just does whatever will pay her fairly in the realm of design and blogging (lixhewett.com, fashion & travel). My family’s pretty poor, I’m pansexual and possibly on the aro spectrum but it could be the meds I take for my depression and anxiety. I complain a lot and am happy not as often but spring does bring a bit of joy.

Top 5 Fandoms:
I’m fairly multifandom and have been lurking for the past few years, like, more than anything else just reading fic? e.g. I read a ton of Bellamy/Clarke modern AUs and have no intention of watching The 100. Previous shows I got overinvested in before quitting them are The Vampire Diaries (def quit), Pretty Little Liars (may well catch up sometime), Teen Wolf (I go back and forth because Allison). I also read Marvel movieverse fanfic (esp Captain America centric, let’s not even talk about the latest comics drama because fuck them and their horse).

I mostly post about:
My life, these days. I got sort of sucked into by doing work and my public blog and I needed a safe space, so I came back.

My last three posts were about:
A quick update and open 'ask me anything' type thing, a post about my last work trip to London from the train, and a state of the union type thing on my mental health and various issues.

How often do you post? How about commenting?
I try to read every day and comment every week at least, if I have something to say. Posting is a whole other beast but I’d love to get into a daily short-post schedule so I’m minimally pressured to post and really talk everything out. But I did just post for the first time since mid March. So it can be difficult.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far:
If you’d asked me this morning when I had to run out to rescue my clothes from the rain I might have been able to toss an OC gif at you because The Rainy Day Women is my favorite thing forever, but truth is I’m not a gif person at all and don’t save them. I’ll occasionally look one up on twitter but that’s it.

I do however love cats.

Hello! I'm K`shandra (yes, I've been using this particular pseud long enough that I answer to it in meatspace, as well). I'm a second-generation science-fiction fan, reasonably new to this particular fandom, but catching up quickly. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck are guests of honor at one of my local conventions next month; I've got friends who are hosting a Belter-themed party at the con, and I'm putting together an Avasarala costume (not screen-accurate by any stretch, but it should read well with the right accessories).

Looking forward to seeing what havoc we can wreak here! ;-)

Name: Nan
Age: 31
Location: Southeastern USA

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: Hello, I am Nan! I'm a fandom oldbie (having been in fandom since I was 13), an artist (both traditional and digital), a fangirl (I'm a shipper, is what I'm saying here), a writer (both original and fan), and perpetually sleepy.

Top 5 fandoms: I'm a perpetual fandom butterfly and once I've been fannish about something, chances are I'll eventually go back to being fannish about it in the future. Right this moment, I'm particularly fannish about Final Fantasy (specifically XV although VIII and XII are also faves), BBC Sherlock, Yuri on Ice, the MCU, and Fire Emblem (currently playing Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest and Niles is 100% my husbando).

I mostly post about: Fandom stuff (what I'm working on, new comms and challenges here on DW, fic/art recs), art stuff (fan/original, traditional/digital), and Real Life annoyances. If I have a particularly nice day, I'll probably talk about that.

I rarely post about: I don't really post a lot about politics. I don't post a ton about social justice (I believe in it, of course, it's just not a focus on my journal).

My last three posts were about: Noctis/Prompto fanart, communities and art, and that AO3 meme that's been going around.

How often do you post?: Practically daily, lmao. I post a lot.

How about commenting?: I comment as much as I can! I think I do an okay job. Commenting, for me, is an important part of creating a community and that's basically what we're trying to do here on DW, right? :3

...there's going to be a new release this weekend? Or maybe there won't be, because it's so close to DragCave's birthday in May?

I plan to keep my scroll open just in case. It helps that I'm finally done with collecting Fire Gems. Well, almost. I still need a blue and a green one for freezing. *g*

Btw, what do you think of the Fire Gems? Do you like them?

Oye! Welcome aboard the Rocinante.

Pull up a crash couch and grab a bulb of Holden's coffee. He won't mind.

This is your safe haven to discuss anything and everything about Expanse - be it the novels, the short stories or the TV series. You can share fanworks and theories and just general squee. If anyone fancies teaching the rest of us Belter Creole, that would be great! You can even discuss the cast and crew, if that is what your heart desires.

Although we're an MCRN ship, we stick to the rules about as well as Miller does. But we do have a few that we insist on:
  • No bashing. That includes other people, as well as the cast. 
  • YKINMK - if you don't like what other people post, don't read it. In return, we would appreciate it if you would use cut tags if you think other  people might not like what you're posting.
  • Spoiler policy: For two weeks after an episode has aired, or a month after a new book has been released, please keep anything spoilery hidden under a cut. It's only polite.
So, anyway, I'm [personal profile] kayim and I'll be your host here. if you have any questions, just message me.

Unte kowlting gut, to pochuye ke?
