bleeding out

starting over.

I've never been good at these so I'm just going to go for it.

My name is Nicole, I'm 26 and I live in the USA. I've been using livejournal on and off since I was 15 and would like to start keeping a journal again and since I type quickly and think too fast to write it down - this seems like my best option.

I'll be brief and give you an idea of my interests. Over the past two years I've lost a total of 85 pounds and I am now into working out and healthy eating (as best as I can afford). I love to read, it's my passion and I do it often. I love drinking tea and my cats. I love to learn about anything and everything, science, astronomy, physics, history and mythology (the list goes on). Harley Quinn is my hero. I also love Death from the Sandman comics.

So as far as movies, television, books, video games and music, I will name only a few so you don't have to read a novel and if you want to know more just ask, so here we go!

Authors/books: Harry Potter, Neil Gaiman, Chuck Palahniuk, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Cassandra Clare, Hunter S. Thompson, lots of classics and many, many more.

Comics/graphic novels: the Sandman, the Umbrella Academy, the Walking Dead, Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Fables, the Walking Dead, Batman (Harley Quinn!), Hell Boy, 30 Days of Night, etc, etc.

Music: My Chemical Romance, Alkaline Trio, Senses Fail, Radiohead, the Misfits, Smashing Pumpkins, Brand New, Death Cab for Cutie, AFI, Coldplay, Muse, the Damned, Queen, the Smiths, the Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Thursday, the Used, Black Flag, Taking Back Sunday, Jack Off Jill/Scarling, lots of classical and '80s music and much more

Television: American Horror Story, Game of Thrones, the Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Supernatural, the Big Bang Theory (BAZINGA!), Da Vinci's Demons, Star Trek, Heroes, the Vampire Diaries, etc.

Movies/directors: Harry Potter, the Shining, Fight Club, Tim Burton, all famous monsters films, Guillermo Del Toro, Christopher Nolan, the Goonies, Ghost World, the Reanimator, Vincent Price, Star Wars, Star Trek, Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, In Bruges, John Dies In the End, Evil Dead I & II & Army of Darkness, American Psycho, Watchmen, V For Vendetta, Say Anything, Stand By Me, lots of '80 movies and many more.

Video games: Final Fantasy, Zelda, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, Dishonored, Borderlands, Batman: Arkham Asylum & Arkham City, Silent Hill, Bioshock and lots of others.

Feel free to ask me if I like specific things or anything you're interested in knowing, I don't mind answering.

I just went through a very rough breakup which I talk about since it was only two months ago. I talk about moving on from that and starting life over at 26. I am looking for friends to make a connection with, I believe that (and know from my past experience with this site) some of the greatest friends you can make are the ones you make here. Please do not add me if you aren't open minded because I have my own opinions and know how to respect others' opinions so I expect the same courtesy from you. I don't mind debating things, I quite enjoy it but don't be nasty about it. Also, if you lack common sense or type "lyk dis all da tyme" I will not add you back. No racists of any kind please either and I mean towards ethnicity, religion, sexuality, etc. I myself believe in a higher power which I refer to as the Universe but I am in no way religious. We are all made of atoms that were once stars, they exploded and we are all made of stardust (beautiful and true!) and therefore part of the Universe. Don't add me just to have more friends, I cannot stand that. I am VERY sarcastic but never mean spirited, I'm shy but I love getting to know people. I want to make friends of all kinds, you don't have to love the things I do, I like having a diverse group of LJ friends.

I'm in the process of job hunting so I can possibly go to school (I was home-schooled, had tachy cardia and had minor heart surgery at 17 and then took care of my mom when she had cancer, she survived it but I gave up three years of my life to take care of her), get my own place and finally learn to drive. I don't even own a cell phone. SHOCKING, I KNOW. As I mentioned I just got out of my first relationship, we were one month shy of a year and it messed me up for a bit but I am so much stronger yet so turned around in my own head at the same time.

Like I said above, if you want to know more, just ask.

Oh and sorry this was so long.

Hello, people!

I'm Quinn! I've been on Livejournal for a couple years now, and I'm always looking for new folks to chat with and get feedback from.  :-)

I'm 33 years old, female, from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA. Single and childfree by choice, but I don't mind hearing about your relationships and children. I'm actually fond of children. My pet rats are my kids, and I write about them often, and share cute pictures! Actually, I love sharing pictures of many things on my journal. My gardening is often presented, as are pics of my travels or cute fashion pieces. You never know what I may post. LOL I do cuss and make sexual references. I am an Atheist, and expect the same respect I give others and their beliefs. I will not tolerate being preached at. I do enjoy reading about others' religious practices, but a journal that does very little but talk about religion may not be for me.

I'll list my hobbies below, but before that, a brief word- I do have mental illnesses. I am in therapy for them, and am currently doing well with no daily meds, but I do talk about them and my challenges. I am currently involved in the process of getting Bariatric surgery, so there will be talk of that. I do use LJ cuts if requested, but if you are highly sensitive about dieting, mental illness, are easily triggered, or struggle with an eating disorder, you may want to think twice about my journal.

Okay, now that that is out of the way.... interests. I am big into many fandoms- Doctor Who, Supernatural, Transformers, Harry Potter, just to name a few. I am a fanatical thrift store shopper. I've been poverty level for several years, and have many poor skills to share! Very into gardening. I enjoy reading smutty Regency romance novels, quirky fiction, and a wide variety of non-fiction. A better list of my hobbies is on my profile page.

If I sound like your cup of tea, just go right ahead and friend me. I'll friend you back. If you'd rather I friend you first, leave me a message and I'll get right on that.  THANKS!!

Hello potential fandom friends?

I've been absent from fandom for a long time and have recently gotten back into things (or at least want to) so I thought I'd make a post to find more like-minded people to hang out and be geeky together with.

I used to be pretty active in Harry Potter and Prince of Tennis fandom but dropped out some time around 2008.  Right now I'm really mainly focused on Harry Potter fandom again, particularly with Snarry and other Snape-centric pairings, though I'm open to most pairings that can capture my interest, especially femslashy ones or H/D.

Of course, this doesn't mean I don't have other things that I wouldn't love to talk about/glee over.  Here's a quick list of all the various fandomy things I like: Rose of Versailles (Lady Oscar/AllTheLadies); Oniisama E (Kaoru/Rei <3); Legend of Korra & Avatar: The Last Airbender (aldjaofji Toph!  Lin!  Korra/Asami! Alajsaodjai!); Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (all the femslash, all the time?); Elementary (Joan Watson is awesome); Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood (<333 Greedling); One Piece (just so entertaining no pairings are needed).  I also enjoy reading Yotsuba, things by Mori Kaoru & Yoshinaga Fumi, Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Dorothy Sayers novels, and Georgette Heyers books.

I'm also really into femslash--as you can possibly tell XD--and genderfucky things.  Would like to one day write tons of Luna/Anybody stuff, or fic where Draco is trans, or fic where someone is non-binary.  That would be rather awesome.    I love fic where characters crossdress in non-cracky ways or in which gender identity is explored in different ways.  I love AU fic, especially if those AUs include crime or technology or history.  I'm not really into fluff, but fluff isn't really a deal breaker either.  I tend to gravitate toward dark, gritty storylines, or at least ones in which the characters angst a bit.  UST is my best friend.

I'm not looking for someone who shares all these things in common with me, but would love to be friends with anyone who may share some of them.  I'm a fanfic writer (my stuff can be found on AO3, crystalusagi) so it'd be nice--but not necessary--to find people who also write fic.

PM or add me?  Or I'm sometimes online on google talk -- it's just my username@gmail.com.

P.S. Not really a big fan of rps or incest fic, and please definitely do not friend me if you're into chan (Harry should be at least 16, thanks XD) because we probably won't get along?
