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!

NAME: Unnamed female character; just an extra in a sideshow

AGE: A week after my 10th birthday, I watched the Challenger explode live on TV in my 5th grade classroom

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: My interests sometimes seem to change by the hour, but I do have some common denominators... a love of nature and animals, constantly finding creative outlets, and overthinking ...pretty.much... everything. I'm a puzzle-obsessed speedcuber and closet gamer. I dabble in digital art (mainly hand lettering) and have a long history of graphic design. I live on an 1800s farm. I don't own a TV.

LOOKING FOR: ...the answers to the universe? Or maybe some fellow daydreamers who just go with the flow.

I'M INSPIRED BY: Color. Nature. Compassion. Coffee.

LIFE GOALS: Avoid growing up. Stop running with scissors. Get taxes done early. Don't go grocery shopping when hungry.

RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME: I can say the alphabet faster backwards than I can forwards. I can't whistle. I love bananas. I'm the most disorganized but obsessively organizing person you may ever meet.

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm an artist. A creator. A starry-eyed optimistic. I'm an introvert, a smart ass, and I say fuck a lot. (Don't worry, it offends me too) I live on a farm. I have muddy boots, painted fingernails, my own business, and a large collection of bungee cords. My writing style fluctuates greatly with my moods. I reserve the right to not make any sense at any given time as well as the right to make you think that six totally different people are writing in this journal. I even entertain myself in that aspect. Just go with it.

Sometimes I write well thought out entries. Sometimes I just type shit and hit post. It is what it is.

I'm quite open minded and accepting, and believe in the whatever floats your boat theory of life as long as ya ain't hurtin nobody. Don't be an asshole and things will be spiffy between us.

[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.

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!

Greetings

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.

[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.

[personal profile] pastryqueen
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.

Interests and Hobbies: I love reading and writing. Lately I’ve been playing Animal Crossing New Leaf. I love makeup, all things kawaii and all things spooky.

Looking For: New online friends who share similar interests as me! 

Anything Else: I am a cat mom to an American Bobtail named Emma, as I’m sure you may have read in my bio. I have two tattoos and three piercings.

Current Music: Anything Billie Eilish

NAME: Hi I'm Stephanie.
AGE: 29.
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I wouldn't call it an interest or hobby but I am an adult woman who has to work for a living like the rest of us. I'm hoping to be a writer. Unfortunately I primarily write poetry. I love makeup, videogames, & Sailor Moon.
LOOKING FOR: Fellow journal keepers who want to get to know themselves & other people better. I'm queer. If you're pro-Trump, I'm too tired for you. Bonus points for anyone else who is a livejournal veteran.
ANYTHING ELSE?: I have 1 dog & 2 guinea pigs but I would prefer to have many more. I live in Miami & I like it a lot, but I'm not quite sure where I'll be in life a year from now.

NAME: Matt

AGE: Will be 29 in May.

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: My list is like, super long, but I like reading and learning about social justice, with particular focus on queer rights (it being of personal interest and all), although I try to be a decent and better person overall, not just in that area. I like pretty much all things fannish, but reading and writing are big favorites, even if I don't have all that much time to devote to either of them these days. Other things I like are long walks in peaceful places (surprisingly hard to do in Cambodia) pirates, cats and dogs, languages, and education things (professional interest as a language teacher)
ETA: OH MY GOD YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE I LIKE THAT I COMPLETELY FORGOT TO MENTION HERE? FANFICTION. FANFICTION IS A THING I LIKE A LOT. /slaps forehead/

LOOKING FOR: Mostly people who are interested in hanging out! Friendship would be a great bonus, but I'm also pretty casual about subscribing/unsubscribing so don't feel guilty if it turns out we're not a match :3
My access policy is a little more touch and go, but 99% of the blog is public anyways, so there's that x)

ANYTHING ELSE?: I'm a queer trans guy, so if that's a bother better not subscribe. I think nonbinary people are trans, that aces and aros are part of the queer community, that we all need to work on our own prejudice (racism, antisemitism, ableism, you name them, you probably have them), and also that the internet is not where we are meant to grind our teeth and hope assholes will just get tired.
If that sounds like a reasonnable outlook on life to you, we should get along fine :)

ANYTHING ELSE?: Errrrm, not that I can think of...I don't think? I'm (obviously) not too picky & as long as you don't mind my boring life (lol) I'm really just super friendly, super nice and am definitely looking forward to forming some new connections with like-minded peoples!

Hi all,
I hope all are well. My name is Leslie. I like getting to know people and making friends. As my username suggests, two of my favorite things are books and music. I am never not reading or listening to music. Anyways, I like all kinds of music and books. My favorite shows are The Golden Girls, Grace and Frankie, Fuller house and others. In my journal I do not write about my fandoms. I don't mind reading about Fandoms, but I'd much rather read about daily life and stuff. I welcome all people to my friends list, but bare in mind that I do swear. I would prefer people over 18 to be on my friends list. Anyways, feel free to check out the profile. my journal is locked. Also, appologies ahead of time. I do not comment all that much. Not because I don't care, but because sometimes I don't know what to say. Add if you think you want to be friends. No creepers.
