i miss being active in (mostly) fannish discussions nearly everyday a deacde + ago on LJ.  I know, I can write more posts - but who is reading?  I could reply to posts, but... I just looked at my 'reading list'/'friends page' and one page represents a whole week :-(  that's pretty sparse.  I need more DW 'friends'.

 

IDK, rec me people / groups, or rec me to ppl you know?  Is this like a pathetic attempt at a personals ad?  I like slash, especially Snarry, and meta discussions about HP or fandom in general.  But I really dislike JKR and the 'canon'.  I guess that might make some fannish relationships difficult, since in the past, people would be all ''book 7 came out!  Squeeee!'' and I would be ''JKR has again, outdid herself on being a priveledged, cultural-appropiating, hypocrite and enabler of X-phobia/X-bashing, oh and she's a hack who lacks any real writing talent.''  I'd rather talk Fanon than canon as the first is more interesting, the second more triggery/angering.

Uhm, ok, other than the very little specific fandom circle I follow and the few fen in it that I don't offend with my dislike of the creator of a series that had so much potential.... I am Autistic (very very anti Autism $peaks), queer, married (with whom I do much co-writing with), ocassionally complains about chronic pain and lack of spoons, havent had a TV for almost 2 decades and cant afford online subscriptions so I cant really connect with fandoms based on tv shows.  rarely bother with movies too (ironic since film was part of my first create-your-own major) due to lack of $$$ and the sensory issues that overwhlm me in theatres.  I used to love comics, but again, haven't bought any for decades due to money.  I read a lot on medieval history / literature / etc, as well as ancient history, and WWI 7 WWII, world religions/mythologies (although I am an athiest), and biology/genetics and other sciences in general.  I like painting / crafting / sculpting.  We have a mini farm with chickens, miniature sheep, giant but gentle dogs, fancy rats, gerbils, african grey parrot, and rabbits

I need to edit my reading list / friends list...

Seeing so many posts of new fandoms (some I've never even heard of....), and much less of the only one I'm involved with (if i'm still even counted as involved at this point) is depressing....

And I've so little energy these days, if I'm going to try to get back to DW/LJ & fandom, I've got to cut out some of the other communities and people I friended/followed for other things which although still interests of mine, I just don't have time/energy for, like say food/cooking or photography or animation etc.; or even disability related ones, while very relevant, also just depress me even more right now to see.  Please don't be offended if I end up removing/unfriending you or leaving your community/group.

If you think I made a mistake though, please let me know.  I am tired and dyslexic, and often do make errors in marking the wrong boxes.  Just ask any teacher of mine who ever gave a scantron test (do they still have those, or have they gone the way of mimiographs... Im feeling old and useless just knowing I know what a mimiograph is :-( and I still haven't accomplished anything even slightly important/useful...)

As I know some of you have changed names... and as I suck at remembering names anyway.... Please comment if you think I should keep you on....  I'd appreciate knowing the following:

1. If you changed your name recently (which means, like, in the past few years (ashamed)) please let me know who I might remember you as (If you used to use a specific user icon back when, and no longer use it,  I might remember that better too)

2. Do you have accounts on another journal site ( LJ and/or DW ); iif so- same or different name?

3. What do you tend to post about?

4. If applicable: your fandoms (and pairings) if relevant?

5. If you have any recommendations for me of people/places to read/friend/follow/join- esp Snarry or Meta fandom related.

If you want to comment anything else, feel free....
