acoustic_sister: (Stevie Nicks)
[personal profile] acoustic_sister
NAME: Merry, but I also go by Mer, and Mermaid from my family.

AGE: I'll be 29 in August.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I like a lot of things, but I do not participate in any fandoms. I love reading. I enjoy: history(NetGeo History magazine is awesome), some science and sci-fi, fantasy, classics, anything by Lewis Carroll. Douglas Adams makes me giggle to myself like an idiot, and reading Tolkien makes me feel like I snooping in someone's old scrolls and tomes, and it's such a nice way to be. Also,  I like spending my time making graphics and figuring out how GIMP thinks. And I just love classic movies and TCM! My favorite actors/actresses are Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Jimmy Stewart, Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Gary Cooper, Greta Garbo, and Audrey Hepburn.

Lately, I've been drawing portraits of random musicians, and I'm considering picking up playing music again after too long of a break. I can play piano and trumpet, and I'm learning how to play tin whistle, ukulele, NAF, and I can play Scarborough Faire and Epona's Song* on my ocarina (no, it's not the one from Zelda, but rather a Ren Faire purchase.) Yes, I was a bandgeek, and I don't think that wanting of walking in synch will ever leave. I'm currently listening to music from the '70s and '90s a lot, like Collective Soul, Fleetwood Mac, and , of course, Stevie Nicks. 

I'm slowly getting back into gaming and some anime. I have recently acquired a Wii and 2DS, so I'm waiting for the right time to buy Zelda games, and whatever else that won't play on my little, pink DS Lite. I'm currently looking around on the net for good solo RPGs to download ( I do not share well with others); my favorite disk game ever is Neverwinter Nights, not the online version. ;) As for anime, I used to really enjoy (and hope to enjoy again!) Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Inuyasha, The Slayers. Haibane Renmei is my favorite hands down, though. Just thinking of it will make me cry!

LOOKING FOR: Geeks are encouraged to use the front door, and nerds can sneak in through the back window. 

ANYTHING ELSE?: ….well....coffee ice-cream is my favorite....

LOOKING FOR: looking for some like-minded folk who doesn't mind comments on their posts, i've recently started using my own journal to write my personal thoughts and various rambles. it's public because i don't care who reads it, and i'm not the only person who's struggled with what i'm struggling with now. if you need someone to talk to, i'm here for you! i like talking to people who aren't assholes.
ALSO KNOWN AS: ecchis @ twitter - i don't really use it as much as i used to, but i do talk about the interests above as well as retweet a bunch of art (sometimes BL/NSFW). Selshie @ xbox - i mainly play SMITE and that's it. i also play neopets???? if you want that LOL

hi there, and nice to meet you! i doubt this is the case for anyone, but if you're a minor please don't interact since i don't relate to 16 year old problems or whatever, and am looking for mature people to talk to lmao. also, if you're just a weirdo, homophobic/transphobic/racist/maga freak STAY AWAY FROM ME! but yeah, i'm just looking for some new people to talk to here! if you read my first journal entry, it kinda goes into that a bit more as to why. i'm also asexual, a bit shy at first, but overall an interesting soul once you get to know me, i think. i totally sounded like an old person just now writing that. i've been subscribed to this community for years but have never done anything with it until now. um i guess you can read what i've written so far and figure out for yourself if you want to add me? ;; haha it's kinda explicit but whatever. thanks for reading!

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Art, writing, fandom, roleplay
LOOKING FOR: More folks that are chill and against censorship (proship/prokink, anti-thought crime), but I'll talk to pretty much anyone! I also won't talk about things you're uncomfortable with, just be sure to let me know!

I also have a lot of medical problems, so I occasionally fall into radio silence for long periods. I'm okay, don't worry!

 Hello, I'm Ayana, a 35 year old mom from The Netherlands. I have a new account here at DW and am looking to make some friends. I'm a former LJ user, this was +/- 15 years ago but I missed the community feeling. I'm hoping to find it here now.
I enjoy drawing and web design, except I'm without a laptop right now and doing web design on my tablet frustrates me to no end so I let that go for the time being. 
My son is nearly 4 years old and I will turn 36 this Summer. 
My current situation is complicated; my son and I live with my ex (my son's father) but I am looking for a new place.
I also deal with a (chronic) depression, I don't post about it much unless no one else will listen in desperate times.
Anyway, I hope to find some like minded people to add to my reading list, just drop me a comment. :)

I'm a chic in her 40s (ugh) looking for some new DW friends. I live in Michigan, am married, no kids, one spoiled rotten dog. I write about my daily life. I'm kinda boring but I'm totally ok with that. I like to craft - paper quilling, greeting cards, artwork, resin, jewelry and anything else that looks fun. I'm an avid reader and watch way too much tv/movies. I'm looking for a few folks to add who post and read regularly. Anything else you want to know about me...feel free to ask.

draculard: (Bowie)
[personal profile] draculard
 NAME: My friends call me Drac. My enemies call me Lard.

AGE: 24

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Primatology, bog bodies and mummies, lepidoptery, classic lit, black and white horror films, old books (currently making my way through popular Gothic Romance books of the 60s-80s), sci-fi, gay stuff.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I use DW as a catch-all for the fannish miscellany I don't want to post on my tumblr blog (which is mainly about horror), because my tumblr followers are good people who don't deserve to be inundated with my messed-up thoughts about whatever ugly middle-aged man I'm obsessed with. I'm a massive multi-shipper with tons of different fandoms and in the past I've written fics for Once Upon a Time, Star Wars, Stargate Universe, David Bowie, and Planet of the Apes; I read fics for pretty much everything I've ever read or watched and I'd love to make friends with anyone who's kinda weird. It doesn't really matter if they share the interests I've listed; I'm interested in everything! 

My main ships that I currently read fic for are Belle/Rumplestiltskin (OUaT), Everett Young/Nicholas Rush (SGU), Kakashi/Gai (Naruto), David/Gwen (Camp Camp), Rorschach/Nite Owl (Watchmen), Kylo Ren/Hux (Star Wars), and Harry Hart/Eggsy (Kingsman), but I'm not devoted to these pairings and I love to read rarepairs for these (and other) fandoms, and I love stuff that's 'problematic' like Reylo, KakaSaku, etc. I'm pro-shipping and pro-kink so if that bothers you, you probably don't want to add me. 

I especially want to become more involved in Star Trek, V.C. Andrews, Sherlock Holmes, and Altered Carbon, so if you're into those fandoms and you think we could be friends, please add me!

[personal profile] fings
NAME: Call me fings. My workplace and relatives don't need to be able to find me.

AGE: 53

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Linux, Books, Boardgames, RPGs, Music (mostly an odd mixture of hot jazz and stoner/psychedelic rock)

LOOKING FOR: A place away from Facebook, and the feeling I used to get from reading LJ back in the mid-2000s.

ANYTHING ELSE?: My public posts tend to be innocuous -- food, games, books, and matters of public knowledge. My private posts will talk about work (IT/computers), life, family (wife & child) as well. Despite (or perhaps because of?) growing up on a farm, I am an urban city dweller.

[personal profile] megustalations
NAME: Razza
AGE: The tail end of my dirty 30s

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: One of those people who can find pretty much any topic or hobby interesting, even if it's just from an observer perspective. But to list a few major interests of mine: Huge true crime nerd, massive (and I mean massive) fan of Last Podcast On The Left, intersectional feminism, meditation, absolutely love books, went to film school so I'm a bit of a film nerd, huge David Lynch fan, adore Twin Peaks and Breaking Bad (and a slew of other TV shows, such as Brooklyn 99 and Archer), in love with any and all doggos (and cats, and birds, and bunnies, and cows, and…), politics, philosophy, video games, love attending music festivals and concerts, crank all kinds of music from Daft Punk to Nina Simone up loud whenever I'm at home alone, am training to become a professional singer, am a single mum, fascinated by psychology, behavioural science and history, horror films, and big British comedy fan (such as The Young Ones, Mighty Boosh and The I.T. Crowd). I also love to write, and dip my toes in and out of the rp scene here on DW (toes are currently dipped out).

LOOKING FOR: People with similar interests, but also people who are at least semi-regular on the personal blogging front. I'm itching so bad to get back into journalling, and I really miss the community feel that used to come with that back in LJ's heyday, and when journalling culture was the central hub of fandom.

ANYTHING ELSE?: Things I will write unapologetically about on my journal: Kink/BDSM, drugs, PTSD and mental health, Satanism. Please be okay with these topics from the get-go if you want to add me! Also, am Australian born and bred; timezones suck when you're in the Upside-Down.

Hail yourselves, everyone!

NAME: Paul
AGE: 32
INTERESTS: Tech, Goth Music, Relationship Nonsense, Therapy Journaling, 80's Anime (Rumiko Takahashi!), Catholicism, Travel Blogging, THE CURE
WHAT I POST ABOUT: Love, dating, and learning how to be a person through therapy.

You know the famous five stages of grief they say you go through when someone dies? Well, as a Livejournal user from 2001 to present, It's taken me quite a bit of time to accept that old LJ finally gave up the ghost and move over here. Denial? Anger? Bargaining? Depression? You bet! But that fifth stage, acceptance? That one's going to take a while.

But here I am, trying my best. And what better way to work through grief than by meeting new people and being with friends. So add me if you like and lets see if we can get through this together!

NAME: Steph
AGE: 28
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: Oh boy. You know that person who is at least mildly interested in everything? That is me. That being said my longest running interests are books and crafting both of which I lately procrastinate on more than do. I'm also a roleplayer of the text-based kind, I love tiny things, dollhouses, actual dolls, horses, cats, bunnies, all sorts of critters. I'm into history, art, generally learning stuff.
LOOKING FOR: Friends, shared hobbies, people who don't mind a lot of star trek and miniatures on their pages interspersed with other things.
ANYTHING ELSE?: I post whatever I'm feeling at the moment, sometimes it's wordy, sometimes it's lists of my feelings while watching something, sometimes it's projects or ideas for them, my pets, my dolls, my whatevers. Most stuff is unlocked bar a few personal posts if you want to see what I'm like. Fandomwise I've listed a bunch of them in my interest section but some highlights of faves: LotR, HP, The Song of Achilles, Arthurian legends and the media made from it, Star Trek may be my oldest and greatest love. anything fantasy, history, sci-fi, really.

I'm Australian, too, so timezones etc, weird slang.

grayswandir: (Star Trek: &)
[personal profile] grayswandir
NAME: Grayswandir (LJ: [livejournal.com profile] _grayswandir_)

AGE: 35

INTERESTS: Books and literature, languages, philosophy, mythology, religious studies, classical studies. Various fandoms (see below). Miniatures. Really old horror movies. David Bowie, The Cure, Pink Floyd. Charlie Chaplin. Monty Python. Tea. My latest ongoing obsession is basically "Hong Kong pop culture of the 80s and 90s" (or just any movie/show/record/whatever involving Andy Lau), so if you add me, you may end up seeing a lot of posts about that...

HOBBIES: Reading. Writing. Drawing/painting. Making and photographing miniature sets. Collecting vintage My Little Ponies (and maintaining a major collector's website on same). Studying stuff.

FANDOMS: I'm not really active in any fandoms right now, but in the past my main ones have been Lord of the Rings, M*A*S*H, Sherlock Holmes (mostly bookverse), Star Trek TOS, Les Miserables, Notre-Dame de Paris, and Harry Potter. I'd probably be writing fic for The Duke of Mount Deer (TVB 1984) right now if only it had a fandom in English. :P

JOURNAL: My entries are mostly excited and/or reflective ramblings about stuff I'm currently doing (reading, watching, learning, obsessing over), sometimes with pics behind a cut tag. (Lately I seem to spend most of my time trying to find excuses to avoid writing my doctoral thesis. One of my professors, observing my sudden irrelevant passion for learning Chinese, said, "You've taken procrastination to a whole new level." This is probably a fair character note for me.)

LOOKING FOR: Anybody who wants to be friends, really. :) I've been hoping for years that LiveJournal would somehow resurrect, but it's not looking like that's in the cards, so I'm finally trying out DW.

NAME: Samantha (Sam).
AGE: 31.
INTERESTS AND HOBBIES: Gaming, reading, writing, baking - as much as I can do while I work and deal with Real Life. I also have vast fannish interests too large to list here, but my active fandoms are Dragon Age, Mass Effect, World of Warcraft, Sailor Moon, and Final Fantasy. I have a complete list here for those who are curious. I plan on posting book reviews and real life events, but hopefully I'll talk about fandom junk as well!
LOOKING FOR: I used to have a Livejournal and switched to Tumblr like everyone else. I've been on Dreamwidth for years but haven't been active. I'm looking for likeminded people who share my interests and hobbies, love to read and write as much as I do, and don't mind reading about my (admittedly) mundane life and occasional social justice tangents. I also prefer people closer to my age, or at least older than twenty. Bonus points if you're queer and liberal!
ANYTHING ELSE?: I have two dogs named Lucy (toy fox terrier) and Elphaba (chihuahua mix), and a white bunny named Ruby. I love them very much.
ALSO KNOWN AS: I'm academiczombie on Tumblr and smvnowin on Twitter.
