Name: Mer/waketosleep
Age: 31
Country: Canada
Subscription/Access Policy: Subscribe away; I subscribe back if I'm paying attention. I grant access sparingly but my locked posts aren't super common, and are more detailed/specific personal life stuff that I don't want to end up in google results.

Main Fandoms: Star Trek Reboot (at least historically), GenKill, Star Wars, Marvel
Other Fandoms: I randomly touch down in different TV/video game fandoms, and I consistently lurk fics on some pairings but don't post about them.
Fannish Interests: I write.
OTPs and Ships: Kirk/Spock, Brad/Nate (GenKill), Darcy/Hawkeye, Steve/Bucky, random ships that I seize on when they catch my eye. American Gods is starting to have me shipping Laura/Mad Sweeney. *facepalm*

Favourite Movies: Alien series, Terminator series, Looper, Mad Max series, 28 Days Later, most of Melissa McCarthy's movies, the Bourne trilogy, North by Northwest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Casablanca, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, American Psycho, the True Grit remake...
TV Shows: Fringe, Oz, Parks and Rec, B99, GenKill, Chewing Gum, Slings & Arrows, Arrested Development, American Gods, Man in the High Castle, Venture Bros, Bojack Horseman, The Middleman, Fargo... I love TV
Books: Jasper Fforde's books, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (Gregory Maguire), Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, the Discworld books about Death or Moist von Lipwig, Downbelow Station (CJ Cherryh), A Lion Among Men (Gregory Maguire), Bridget Jones' Diary

Games: Mass Effect, Uncharted, Borderlands, Assassin's Creed (shut up), Fallout: New Vegas, Phoenix Wright, Professor Layton, Minesweeper. I just finished Persona 5.
Comics/Anime/Misc: I got pretty into some of those primo storylines in Marvel Now but I haven't had time to read comics in ages so there's a stack of unread issues of Ms. Marvel etc. I did make time to read the first stretch of Ryan North's Squirrel Girl, though. I also try to keep up with the WicDiv and Sex Criminals trades.

Other Info: I've been on DW for years but quit posting when Tumblr killed journaling. I want to get back into it if it has a heartbeat again. Expect AO3 shares of new fic I write and random posts about whatever media I'm watching, with less frequent, slightly more personal posts about things like life updates/craft projects/complaining about law school and law students and the law (I'm heading into 2L). Some of those I lock, depending on their content. I'm also open to discussing my adventures with ADHD.

I picked some tags for things I enjoy that you should feel welcome to talk to me about!
ETA and then I went through the post and added bold tags so you can read it!

I'm sort of trying to find something...fandom friends, or maybe just friends.

I will always love Stargate (SG-1 and SGA) and Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY) I have passing interests in other and currently love Dragon Age, MCU, Steven Universe, Brooklyn 99.

I'm 35, bi, gf, married with a kid. I don't write as much fanfic as I used to still have a lot of ideas peculating up there. I miss being part of fandom though I've always felt like I was on the fringes.

I ship f/f and het mostly, and I read that too but I will write anything. Any pairing. I'm either mental or gifted. Not sure which.

I love old films from the beginning to the 70s. Love MST3K. The new series was great. I love crap films, I hate reboots but I will watch them sometimes.

I live in Wales, I work in a pharmacy and write fiction and poetry too.

I have an intro post here for more about me.

In the interest of Being Excellent and considerate of those who plan to watch this episode, all references to the content of this episode are stashed under the cut and will remain so hidden for at least a month. Someponies like to watch MLP:FIM in herds and it can be a while before they get all their ponies together. 8^) As spoilers are also likely to be in any comments: don't read if you haven't yet seen the episode unless you like being spoiled. When you're ready, drop in a comment and say what you thought of this episode!

After a month, I hope Episode Discuss posts will be so far off the top page that it'll probably take the tag to find them, so about a month after posting the cut will be removed. 8^) Sometimes I go back and drop in little extras into the posts, like comics and links to the music.

This was broadcast about 24 hours ago (I think), on Boomerang in Oz! The US broadcast isn't due for a few months, give or take.

Written by Joanna Lewis and Kristine Songco.

For those of you following Twitter, you can follow writers Nick Confalone (Hearthbreakers), Mike and Will Fox (The Gift of the Maud Pie), Joanna and Kristine (Gauntlet of Fire), Dave Polsky (Rarity Takes Manehattan) and Jennifer Skelly (Buckball Season). Other twits in the early morning chorus may include the likes of Meghan McCarthy, Jayson Thiessen (Supervising Director of MLP:FIM), Andrea Libman , the voice of Dragon Lord Ember Ali Milner, Big Jim (storyboard work, voice of Troubleshoes and Director of MLP:FIM), Mike Vogel and Josh Haber. The hashtag to watch should be #MLPseason7.

Review for episode 13, The Perfect Pear, below the cut. )

Other Info: Ravenclaw, INTP. I love all Trek but Janeway is the captain of my heart and DS9 is my fav - so yeah, I'm that Trek fan. I am also a multishipper (obvs) who doesn't do ship wars; I ship and let ship. That doesn't always seem to be the case on tumblr, so just know I'm old school regarding that. I've been on DW for 7 years, but am fully integrating now via the great migration from LJ. I'm also on AO3 and tumblr. My journal is 90% fandom related. Please come and be my friend! I miss the discussions about fandom that occurred on LJ in its heyday.

 8: A song about drugs or alcohol

TBH all I want to listen to right now is Long Hot Summer, but whatever, meme.

The guitar part for this is INSANE and I love it. 



Just for fun I'm going to give you my favourite Bollywood sharab song, too. Man, I'd be like this in a car with Shashi Kapoor with or without being drunk and/or stoned. Especially if he was going to tie me to things with his scarf, good lord.

Fannish Interests: I read and write fan fic. I occasionally write meta about shows or about writing fan fic.

Other Info: I write about personal life issues and mental health issues on my blog. I also write about my various efforts to support myself which have not been entirely successful. I write original fiction though not very much due to the aforementioned mental health issues. (I am slowly overcoming the problem though, and am looking forward to eventually posting more original fiction to my fic journal.) I am working on getting more of my older fan fic up on my AO3 account.

I have no idea what I'm doing...

About Me/Other Info: So, I'm new to dreamwidth, but my wife has had an account forever and she thinks it's a cool place, plus I was just getting into Imzy and it went bust so I thought I'd try out dreamwidth. Truthfully, because of working-class life experiences and a misspent youth, I just discovered fandom and fanfic about 2 years ago even though I've been reading sff (and everything else I could get my hands on) since I was a kid. So, yeah. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm a pretty great cook. I just graduated with a master's in gender and sexuality and have a bachelor's in history (first-gen college graduate). I like collecting original art and prints from queer and fat and queer fat artists. I write poetry, but most of it is terrible. I come up with great ideas for stories and/or books, but never seem to follow through. I hope that changes now that I'm done with school. Tattoos are awesome and so are cats.

I don't drive often, and when I do it's tiny distances so I don't think I'm really qualified to answer this one but I'm going to go for this one because of the bass:


Hello!

[personal profile] kutsuwamushi posting in [community profile] addme_fandom
Name: Kutsuwamushi
Age: Early 30s
Country: Generally the US
Subscription/access policy: Some fandom stuff is locked1

Fandom interests: I'm a fandom butterfly. I've been in fandom for a long time and have collected too many fandoms to list. My very first fandom was Sailor Moon, and then I briefly passed through Evangelion before eventually ending up stuck on Gundam Wing for years (halp). Later, I found out that things other than anime exist; right now I'm reading a lot of Marvel fanfiction.

I like to talk about the things that I'm reading or watching and I'm looking for friends who have a similar outlook - not necessarily people in the same fandoms. I guess I'm just looking for fannish people. I've always been big on meta; I used to moderate fanficrants and little_details on LJ.

OTPs and ships: I don't really have OTPs, but I hang out on the slash side most of the time.

Books: Yes.

Music: I'm a huge music nerd, but I'm not in the cool, tattooed lady at the back of your late 90s record shop who recommends you obscure rock bands. I'm the painfully earnest, caffeinated college roommate trying to get you to listen to Ethiopian church music.

Games: I played a lot of Destiny and will do so again.

I like to post about: Everything. I'm just starting to post on DW again after a long absence.

1 I made the terrible mistake of leaking my pseudonym to some real life friends who don't need to know what I think about Geralt and Emhyr gettin' it on.

I used to watch this show. ♪♫ "It's a story..." ♫♪

It's just about time for Discovery Family to broadcast the last episode they have in store before the summer intermission. The episode discussion post for Not Asking For Trouble is back here on May 21st, the day TreeHouse in Canada broadcast it. What we haven't seen so far is any sign of Queen Bug. Now speculation has it that Australia will broadcast episodes 12 and 13 before the end of June. Maybe 12 and 13 is a two parter where Chrysalis sets Equestria on fire! Then pony fans everywhere will slowly go bald over the two month intermission, yanking out fistfuls of hair and wondering if Glimmer, Maud and Trixie will find the One Stone To Rule Them All in time to avert the bug-pony zombie apocalypse.

 I went to the Queens Werq The World tour and it was great! I didn't see Latrice but I saw Alyssa (who is everything) and Shangela did a number with that Shjrirley Bassey cover of Get The Party Started (!!!) and then Detox did a MANNEQUIN THEMED lipsynch and then Too Funky by George Michael so I lived, I died, I was reincarnated.

6: A song that makes you want to dance

Everyone knows there's really only one answer to this but whatever, I'm giving it a shot because I can't make every song a T.Rex one.

Have the greatest Dutch gay classic, the type of song I can only listen to while dancing and gesticulating melodramatically:
