I'm a 25 year old aspiring art student who tries to look on the brighter side, but is about as prone to the occasional spate of emo-blogging as anyone else. You should see my earliest entries. Can we say Angry Teenager is Very Upset? (Someone should totally create LOLteens...) I try not to take it too seriously.
Here's where I out myself: I LIKE FAN FICTION.
I do. I write it even. Less these days than I did when I was younger, but there is still fan ficcing being done by me. Fan fiction can be a pretty charged subject. Most fan-ficcers have an... image problem. However, I'm past the point where I see the need to be embarrassed about it.
Note: I don't post fan fic here all that much. If you're interested, try my fiction LJ: d_ragondaughter
Shocked? Don't be. I'm about to out myself again: I LIKE ROMANCE NOVELS.
They're hilarious and when done well, they're also total brain candy. Here's a rec for you: Smart Bitches Love Trashy Novels. Google it. You'll be glad you did.
Going to out myself for the third time. Hope you don't have heart problems: I LIKE SLASH.
Slash. Yaoi. Boy on Boy. I don't think it's gross. I think it's fun. I don't however go in for the weird trembling-uke-as-stand-in-for-girl kind of thing. I don't think of that as slash. I think of that as a couple with a weird gender dynamic. Sadly, there's a lot of it out there. Rough times for folks who like their characters well-rounded and believable, but we make do. :D
I would like to note that my affection extends to the entire LGBT community. Me? I'm straight, but my mom's been out of the closet for a good five years now at least. I dislike the word 'tolerance' because in some respects it still implies that there is something wrong going that 'normal' people should just put up with. I don't think it's like that at all. I don't think love is ever wrong at all.
Well, if I haven't managed to run you off screaming into the night: WELCOME! Enjoy your stay.
Out the fourth: I don't check my account to see who's friended me all that often. If you friend me please drop me a note so I can friend you back otherwise I might not realize you're here and that would be sad!
