And terrible at writing bios. D:
A few facts about me, in easy-to-write sentence fragments:
Loves books and writing. Does a bit of ficcing. Watches a lot of TV. Spends too much time on the internet. Obsessed with icons. Sometimes hyper, sometimes serious. Random and surreal sense of humour. Friendly but kinda shy. (Umm, hi there!)
Basically doesn't have a life, for reasons that'll become clear when you get to column two.
As far as friending goes, if you get to the end of my profile and think "hey, you sound cool", you're free to add me. If we're chatting in a thread on a community or something, I'll probably put two and two together and add you back; if we've never met before, it's probably best to drop me a comment to say hi, otherwise I'll be like, "who is this person and why have they added me?" XD;
Okay, something you should know about me is that I have chronic fatigue syndrome. This affects me in a lot of different ways, but the important ones are...
SYMPTOM: Constant mental and physical exhaustion.
RESULT: Not really able to do anything more taxing than sitting at home on the internet all day.
SYMPTOM: "Brain fog" and difficulty concentrating.
RESULT: I rarely post entries or leave comments or, in fact, do anything; instead I lurk and read my friends list. Also my memory is crap. Oh, and I am the Quenn fo Tpyos.
SYMPTOM: Difficulty getting to sleep, difficulty waking up, unrefreshing sleep in between.
RESULT: I can be getting up at 1pm. Or I can be eating lunch at 3am. Or I can sleep for sixteen hours.
Essentially I'm pointing all of this out because it will affect how I interact with you, and I don't want you to be sitting there going, "Why is she posting at that time of night? Doesn't she have school or work or anything? Why does she keep making comments about her brain malfunctioning?" - I don't make sense if you think I'm leading a normal life! (Granted I tend not to make sense anyway, but, err...)
There are a lot of books and TV shows and movies that I like, but I tend to only participate in the fandoms for a few of them. And by "participate", I mean read and write fic, make and download icons, lurk in communities, occasionally do some fanart, etc. (Mostly the icons and the lurking though.)
I am what could be described as a "multishipper"; my default ship for any fandom is Everyone/Everyone. I usually have a few OTPs as well, though - but if any of them clash, well, it's OT3 time! I don't go in for bashing characters or stuff like that either. All in all, I'm pretty laid back about things.
My main fandoms (plus related characters and ships) are listed below; if we have one of these in common, we'll probably get along. If you want to know what my more minor fandoms are, check out my interests list.
Have I mentioned yet that I'm obsessed with icons? I have? Several times? Oh. Well, it's true. I have a ridiculously large collection of them. Far more than I'm prepared to admit to in public, so I won't say exactly how many, but... a lot.
Look, my brain is fried most of the time, and I need to do something to keep boredom at bay, and downloading icons is easy. And I use them as references for my own iconmaking! So it's totally logical, really.
...You're not convinced, are you? Okay, I admit it, I'm just a crazy person. :/
(That said, I've long passed the point where I'd actually be able to use all of my icons on LJ, so I don't even bother to try. I haven't changed most of my icons in years... So, umm, don't judge my taste in icons by the ones I have uploaded. They're not really a good indicator.)
