about this journal.

Basically, my blog, my rules - fair enough, I think. In this case, "my rules" are fairly simple - feel free to respectfully disagree with me, though the key-word here is "respectfully;" a genuine inquiry into why I think/feel a certain way is wonderful and welcome, but berating or degreding me for feeling/thinking a certain way is not. Please extend the same respect to my commenters, and don't start flame wars in my comments section. That being said, I don't go out of my way to post controversial topics (though they may arise), nor am I particularly political on this blog, so my posts shouldn't inspire much vitrol to begin with. If they occassionally do, however, please channel it positively. I have a very "live and let live" kind of philosophy, and welcome folks from all walks of life, though the three things I can never abide on my blog (or Friend's Page, for that matter) is any form of racism, sexism (including "feminist bashing;" I'm cool if you don't agree with certain branches/ideaologies/etc., that's fine (we aren't a homogenous group!), but attitudes like "all feminists are manhaters/lesbians/etc." are unacceptable), or homophobia (including slurs against anyone on the GLBTQIA spectrum). Very simple, very clear cut. If you want to Friend me, please feel free to, but please also drop a line so a.) I know you're an actual person, not just a serial-adding bot, and b.) I know what's interested you about my blog. I will, in general, add back if you seem like someone who shares some common interests.

about my fandoms.

I am a fangirl. I make no attempt to hide it. I don't post extensively about fandom unless there's a big event or a con coming up (and those are pretty few and far between, because they are pricey and I work in academia), but my "Fandom Friday" posts are one of my few "thematic" posts that goes up regularly. Most of my more... entusiastic fandom rambling can be found at my Tumblr (the URL for which I'll gladly message my friends upon request). However, for those looking for fellow fans, or wondering what kind of stuff I may post. This is for you. I ship slash almost exclusively. It's totally cool if you don't, but don't berate me for doing so.

current, recurring, and past fandoms and pairings.

Harry Potter: Harry/Snape, Harry/Voldemort, Sirius/Remus; Avengers (movie!verse): Steve/Bruce, Thor/Loki; Doctor Who: Doctor/Master, Elven/Amy/Rory; Sherlock: Sherlock/John; Merlin: Arthur/Merlin; House: House/Wilson, House/Chase, Chase/Foreman, Foreman/Taub; The IT Crowd: Moss/Roy; Community: Troy/Abed, Jeff/Abed; Myth Adventures: Aahz/Skeeve; Arrested Development: Michael/GOB; Psych: Shawn/Lassiter, Shawn/Gus; Star Trek (TNG): Picard/Q, Data/Geordi; Discworld: Vimes/Vetinari; Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack/Norrington, Pintel/Ragetti, Bootstrap/Will; Heroes: Sylar/Peter, Nathan/Peter; Supernatural: Sam/Dean; Dean/Castiel RPS: Simon Pegg/Nick Frost, Jude Law/Robert Downey Jr.

NOTE: There are some things I love to read that may not sit well with you, and that's cool. If I post fic I write, or (more likely) rec fic, I will always, always warn for questionable or potentially sensitive material.

Hello there! This is me doing as instructed and dropping you a formal friend request. I found your journal through an interest search for Chuck Klosterman (I thought I would find nothing; imagine my celebration) and I agree with what you put out to be your beliefs in your profile. Basically, I'd like to be friends of the LJ variety because I think you're pretty cool and I'd like to read more of what you have to write. My journal is a lot less organized (many, many more capslocks and randomness) and I know to you I'm just a random stranger, so I won't be offended if you don't add me back, but I went ahead and added you. :)

I have no qualms about random strangers adding me :) I just like people dropping a note because there are some people even on LJ who are serial adders, and some... bots? Spammers? I don't know. But you're on LJ, you know what I'm talking about ;) So I like to know that the people who are friending me are real people and are actually friending me because they think I am interesting.

We actually have quite a few common interests, and don't worry - oy, if you'd only seen my old LJ! - I can CAPSLOCK OMG with the best of them. Added.

I know what you mean about the serial adders. I couldn't ever understand why you'd wish to be "friends" with someone for sake of higher numbers on your userinfo. Doesn't make very much sense (particularly if you're going to ceremoniously cut them a short time later). *sigh* The wonder that is LJ politics.

Anywho, glad to be added back! :)

Hello! I stalked you from [ profile] cat_exploded's journal, and I hope you don't mind if I add you :) I like your style and your taste in pairings. I'm also almost exclusively a slash shipper, although I don't post about it much I love reading other people's stuff ^_^

Hi! Added back, as I said I'll add mostly anyone so long as I know you're a real person and not just collecting "friends." :)

Alas, I don't write much fanfic anymore, but Sherlock has made me really, really want to (but then everyone is so awesome and I'm so out of touch that I'm like, "why bother?") I try not to innundate my journal with fandom stuff, but I post about it pretty regularly.

Right now though, it's mostly holiday crafts, NaNoWriMo, and weight issues. Piss, whine, moan ;)

Whining and moaning is what lj was built for! :P Now you can see my friends-only entries you'll notice I only post angst and the occasional meme, I don't have terribly high standards ;)
I'm also doing NaNo :) it's a bitch.
Sherlock made me write my first fanfic in years ^_^ it's such an amazing and wonderfully slashy show. I cannot wait for the second season in January, although I keep trying not to get my hopes up for it.

I wondered if you would like trying to be friends. I'm looking for new people to read about on occasion.

Sorry! I just deleted my previous comment because I realized I was looking at a different add-me entry when I wrote the friend request. Anyway, seriously now, I found an entry of yours in an add me community and I thought that we have a lot of common interests, including fangirling on books, but also that you post about stuff that I'd like to learn about like crafting. So, I hope you add me back. :)

No problem :)

I saw your post in an adding community and spent the whole time going, "Me too!" when I was reading it. :) Friends?

But of course!! :)

Hi, I saw your post on add-me and I'd like to friend you. We share a love of crochet and crafts and the Avengers.

I'm Eric, 45, a married dad from New Jersey, and a newcomer to LJ. I discovered your blog via the Snail Mail LJ Group. I'm seeking snail mail friendship (no romance, financial assistance, etc.). We share an interest in the Harry Potter books, paper crafts, BBC Sherlock, abortion rights, GLBTQ rights, and New England (I grew up in Connecticut).

If you're still up for penpalling, I'd enjoy hearing from you.
