about


you're going to have to
save yourself.


- charles bukowski


I try not to apply labels on myself (they're for jars, not people) but if I had to check myself off on a form, this how it would go: Female. 21. Writer. Liberal. Bi. Vegetarian. Pagan. Fangirl. College student. English and Psychology major.

My journal is an over all hospitable place where I go to post my thoughts and my fic. We have cookies here and we encourage that you buy a postcard while in the area, particularly because this is a strange land populated by pleasantly odd people. But a few disclaimers:

No bigots allowed here, please. Let's just make it a ignorance-free zone. I happily coexist with those with which I have differing opinions, because one thing I've learned is that I can't expect someone on the "other side" to respect my views if I don't do the same in return. So anticipate that being a two-way street.

One thing that I think I should say is DON'T get scared off by my ship list. I don't discriminate when it comes to friending. I won't bite. You might notice that my non-cannon ship list is longer than my cannon one, and this plays a part in both my opinions on fandom and the fic you'll find here. However, I ask that you not bring the ugliness of ship hate (or any kind of hate, actually) onto this journal. Simple.

All entries are f-locked, except for my fic and the rare public fandom post.

My policy on friending: I will friend anyone who comments on my journal to tell me, or if we already know each other some way. I love making new friends, but I don't add back those that are just doing it to keep track of my fic.
I have claims at 50_darkfics (Lost general series with slybrunette ), 10_cliche_fics(Lost general series), a multi-fandom fc_smorgasbord claim and two centi_50 claims (The Office and Twilight general series). I created/mod officegirlslash.
