Friends Only? Man, this girl is insane. . .

So the other day (which, as it turns out, was actually today) I got to thinking, and I concluded that this LJ has, in fact, gone FO. And, this being the case, this would probably be the entry anyone who has not yet friended/been friended by me would probably comment on to have one or both of the previously mentioned actions occur.

You may notice that there are several entries that are not, for lack of correct terminology, FO'd. These posts only talk about writing (mostly FF), so I felt no need to FO them.

So who am I? If you must know, I'm a student who constantly comes up with novel novel ideas (ahaha) but never gets around to writing them. I've done NaNoWriMo for four years now, and the rest of my writing comes in either short story format (mostly Harry Potter fanfiction, because I'm super cool) or poetry. I write really stupid poems. Really, really stupid. Like, I like gimicks and all that.

I love Harry Potter, LOST, The Office, Shakespeare, etc., etc. I'm generally a fan of everything I'm exposed to and can quite quickly form obsessions (I started reading fanfiction before I finished reading the Harry Potter series; I form ships pretty much the instant I see romantic spark and cling onto them forever and ever ...). Ex: I will always always always ship Jack/Kate based primarily on their scene together in the pilot when he tells her to count to five. James/Lily belong together, no Sirius or Remus or Snape or anything. OH, and I think if I had a favorite character his name would be Hamlet and he would still be alive. To me, good characters are like old friends who always welcome you back after extended absences.

If you are having doubts about my sanity, I must assure you that I have been insane since the fall of '04. I can think of at least five people who can verify this. Actually, only five. But still.

I'm pretty shy in RL but I'm getting over that. I've become a newspaper nerd over the course of my stay on LJ and you can trace this growing obsession if you feel like going back three years into the realm of outdated posts. It's kind of funny. I used to be confused about everything that went into newspaper production, but now I eat sleep breathe it.

I'm a Christian and a conservative but my political views aren't completely shaped yet so I tend to veer away from conversations into which I have no business butting. I love old movies. I think quotations are marvelous things and good books inspire me. It would be really cool to become a photographer but I know I don't have the patience. I think the FOMC and economic indicators are kind of really cool.

Now what about you? Tell me who you are, how you stumbled across my LJ, and possibly what common interests we share. I'm really quite friendly and open about my LJ because I make sporadic posts here and there, so I'll most likely friend you back (no, honestly. Even if I don't know you. Even if you're a stalker. Of course, when I find out that you're a stalker, I'll bring up my Perverted-Justice connection and then BAM! No more you).

Anyway. I guess that's it. I do not expect anything to come from this post, but I figured that it was sort of missing, so here it is. Comment or always wonder what I had to say. Your choice.

P.S. I update this as my interests change and whenver I have nothing better to do.

I'm Rebekka from HPFF and I would like to friend you. :) Writing and HP are the two things we have in common. :) I also love dogs, books, forests, movies (esp. LotR and Spirited Away), anything Japanese and people in general. :)

Hey! I'm HauntedMemories from HPFF. I used to be mysticalcynic on there for about a month or so, but I just changed it. HP is the biggest thing that I think we have in common, but I also like writing, horror, watching movies, and reading (esp. HP fanfiction). One of my current favorite series besides HP right now is Cirque du Freak. My friends say that I'm an introvert (sometimes), but I do talk more around friends than complete strangers.

Hi hi Marisa! I saw your LJ on Chelsey's and decided to pop on over here. Will you add me? Only if you don't mind me reading about you, because I love to comment. If you don't want me to, it's okay. Just tell me and I'll be okay with it.

Sure thing, Lisa! I'd be happy to add you. =)

Hallo! I'm FaymosAmos on HPFF, I've seen you around, and you seem like a very sweet person. It'd be nice to be your friend. ^_^

I like writing, HP, movies, romance, etc, etc. I'm actually a very boring person. :)

Hey, Faymos! As you might soon realize, I'm fairly boring as well ... but I'd be glad to let you decide that for yourself. =P

Friends Only

Hi! I found your LJ link on WPSS and wanted to check it out. No, I don't think you're insane. In fact, I can relate to some of the stuff you said, like about being very shy and not being much of a talker. I'm the same way. I enjoyed reading your blog!

Re: Friends Only

Welcome to my LJ! Hope you don't lose your mind anytime around here. =)

Hi! It's Cathryn (rainbow92)from HPFF. It was quite interesting to read your post; we have a fair bit in common! I don't have much of a social life...in fact, of late, I have no social life whatsoever. I'm shy, but not so shy that people actually listen to me when I speak. And I'm also insane, and there are people who'll gladly verify it. I enjoy HP and writing, but, as I'm Australian, I can't say AI has ever interested me much.

Anyway, again; it was very interesting reading it. I'm adding you as a friend, hope you don't mind!

Posted by: Risa (vcoke_girl)
Posted at: May 31st, 2006 10:43 pm (UTC)

Of course I don't mind! I've added you back. AI has betrayed me, so I guess I can't really hold it against you. =)

Hey, Angie! Oh, it's fine, LJs can start to get mixed up in my mind after time. I'm practically friends with everone. *cough*exaggerationofthecentury*cough* Well, the important ones, at any rate. =)

Love your post!

Hey, Marisa! I am new to the blog and LJ space, but here I am! I actually found the link in your signature on the HPFF forums! I just loved your post. It's so sweet! I'd love to be friended by you! :P

Actually, we share two interests, namely HP, writing, and LJ! Hehe, I have one, too, but I don't like it that much. Blogs are way better. Anyway, on HPFF I am Lyn Midnight, like everywhere else. Maybe this will sound weird but I love it when people call me Lyn, though that's not my real name. I just got fond of it really fast! But only people on HPFF call me that.

What else? I live to read and write! It's an addiction, really. I guess that's pretty obvious by now, but the next thing you should know about me is that I can ramble for hours on the net. Ironically, I do not talk so much in real life. Yet another thing in common.

Apart from HP and writing, I tend to have odd interests. For starters, psychology, astrology, astronomy, wicca, etc. I cannot believe I have not read your fics till now. That archive is huge after all. Oh, I know some of the people here. Hey, Cathryn!

So, I guess the last thing to say is, really nice to meet you!

I read your post and figured it out. =P My goodness, you have a way of not sticking to a name! I'm guessing sate is a Lost ship - I really have to start watching that show.
