Friending Meme!  
So I know a lot of us are more connected this year, after secretlypadfoot hosted a friending meme last year. But I know we have even more people around this year, and I know I didn't meet everyone last year! So I decided that maybe for once I should go ahead and do something, and so I'm going to host a friending meme this year. This might not be the time of year for it, I don't know. But there's no harm in giving it a go, right? I love having more friends and a more active friends list this year, and feeling more connected all around.




And here's a little quiz for you to take. It's largely taken from dear Padfoot, with a few tweaks by yours truly. If you have suggestions to change it up, let me know!

Copy/paste from here!:
Gelsey: Picture - me as luna closeupgelsey on December 16th, 2016 06:39 pm (UTC)
Name? Jasmine / Gelsey
Are you over the age of 18? Unfortunately so :)
Rough location? East Tennessee, USA
What do you post in your journal? Day-to-day life, rants, writing/fic, writing questions, photos! Lots of photos (always under a cut)
What is your Friending policy? Friends only, just let me know who you are, that’s all I ask.

Who are your favorite HP characters? Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, Severus Snape, and oh so many others, honestly. I love seeing things with little known characters.
What are your favorite pairings? Severus/Hermione is where I fell into and started, but I’m a rarepair queen and love nothing more than a good rarepair that you can make work. I’ll read just about anything at least once!
What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?) I honestly enjoy a bit of everything so long as you can pull me in!
What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes? Tropes – friends to lovers, random hobbies that bring people together, working together making people see each other differently, etc.
Genres – Pretty much anything. I admit I’m more prone to not hellaciously dark fic these days, but I’ll give almost anything a try. I’ll do AU if you can sell me on it, Canon, EWE, Next Gen, anything.
What are your squicks? Generally speaking, things in sex that don’t normally belong in sex, really dark themes, etc, but honestly I’m very flexible on most of it and it depends on the fic? I give a lot a chance, especially if I know the writer.
What are some of your favorite communities/fests? katmarajade and I run interhouse_fest, which was a favorite far before we took it over. humpdaydrabbles is always a pleasure. sshg_giftfest is great!

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in? I’ve written Star Trek (mostly reboot) fic as well as dabbling in a few others.
What are your favorite pairings/characters in those? Oh gosh well we could be here all day if I list those out.

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc) I mainly write. I also beta read. If you need a beta/edit, hit me up! I actually really love it. I read. I mod a community or two. I’m mainly here to make friends though, and maintain those friendships. I go to conventions. And apparently I host the occasional meme. Surprise surprise. I also play-by-post RP, original or HP.
What rating is your journal/work? Anywhere from G to NC17. But I do curse pretty frequently especially when I’m upset.
How long have you been in fandom? Oh god it’s been over a decade now. 12 years? I think it’s over 12 years now. Wow now I feel old.
Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?) I consider myself an amateur photographer (and always willing to learn more). An animal lover (we [my family] have a dog, Paloma, and a total of 3 horses, one of which is mine, as well as chickens). An avid reader, a less productive writer but one who wants to write a novel at some point, someone who has a crappy job but tries to make it work.
Anything else you'd like to share?

Re: Me!
Oh how lovely, another friending meme! I know I had a TON of fun hosting it last year, and it makes me happy to see it come around again.

Such a cute puppy by the way. <3

Re: Me!
I've seen you around for years, so I'm not sure why I haven't already friended you. We also have quite a few friends in common. So I've friended you, if that's okay?

RE: Re: Me!
Happily yes! There's so many people I apparently run in the same circles with! *friending back*

Re: Me!
O.O Is that a kelpie?!?! If not, then damn, your dog has a doppelganger in mine!

Also, hi! Sorry for the completely random flailing! :/

RE: Re: Me!
Random flailing is always welcome! I do believe she's a certified dork, though, no kelpie blood required ;)

I'm muchtoo amused that your dog is a clone of ours hahaha

Re: Me!
Not a kelpie at all? Wow, that is strange! And Bob the Dog is just as dorky, most likely. He keeps running into things. The clothesline at full speed is his latest catastrophe. -_-

RE: Me!
Hello, I wondered if you'd like to be friends? I'm in HP fandom, I write slash, mostly H/D but also some cross gen involving Malfoys, and I also post about general fandom stuff, recs, fests, etc.

Thank you for hosting this meme! It looks lovely!

I recognize you from some of katmarajade's posts. I also love rare pairs and I'd love to see your photography. Would you like to be friends?

Also, thank you for hosting the meme!
