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.

So...

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!:

Oh, I loved the friending meme last year. Thank you for resurrecting it!

Name? Hikorichan (I only share my real name with friends)
Are you over the age of 18?By a lot.
Rough location?BC, Canada
What do you post in your journal? HP fanfic and art, thoughts on writing and art in general, recs, other random fandom things, the rare personal post
What is your Friending policy?The more the merrier

Who are your favorite HP characters?Hermione Granger is my absolutely favourite, followed by Severus Snape (so perhaps there's no surprise I ship them together); I also like Harry, Luna and Ginny.
What are your favorite pairings? My OTP is SS/HG. I also like Remus/Luna, Harry/Ginny, Harry/Luna, Ron/Draco.
What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?) Mostly het due to my OTP, but I have read and enjoyed both slash and femmeslash too. I like post-Hogwarts, especially when Hermione is older. Canon or AU is fine as long as they seem realistic and make sense. I prefer pairings or Gen.
What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes? I'm really not that picky, as long as a fic is well written. I prefer character-driven plots. I like both dark fics and fluff; I like romance, angst, and drama; but HEA is a must! Love a good PWP. I do love "first time" fics. I like my BDSM hard and dirty (degradation/objectification/humiliation and bondage are probably my primary kinks). Love M/s and heavy D/s. That said, I only love these things if they are consensual. EWE, because Hermione and Ron never should have ended up together (I don't hate Ron, I just hate him with Hermione).
What are your squicks? Marriage Law (won't read it). People doing things they normally wouldn't because they have to/are manipulated into it (it's not that I won't read dub-con or non-con, but then it needs to be presented that way; I hate when dub-con is passed off as consent, when in reality the person doesn't feel they have a choice). Severus with anyone other than Hermione. Ageplay. Scat play. Needle play.
What are some of your favorite communities/fests? sshg_giftfest, interhouse_fest, sshg_smut (bit biased on this one), grangersnape100

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in? A Court of Thorns and Roses, Star Trek, Star Wars
What are your favorite pairings/characters in those? Feyre/Rhysand, Feyre/Lucien, Dukat/Kira

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc) Writer, artist, beta. I run and mod sshg_smut and acotar.
What rating is your journal/work?From G to NC-17
How long have you been in fandom? Since 2003, though I took a large break between 2005 and 2014.
Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?) Music: liquid funk drum and bass
TV shows: Star Trek (TNG being my favourite of them all), Firefly, Dr. Who, IT Crowd, Buffy, Game of Thrones, Better Off Ted, X-Files, Pillars of the Earth, Black Books, Sherlock, Rome, Long Way Around, Sakamichi no Apollon, Anohana, Red Dwarf, Babylon 5, Broadchurch, Silicon Valley, Stranger Things
Politics: Progressive socialist. We're all human.
Family: Husband
Pets: Two cats
Hobbies: beyond writing and art and fandom, I like cooking (especially local and artisan food), gardening, reading, horseback riding, walking, travelling, birdwatching
Anything else you'd like to share? I read a lot of graphic novels/comics/manga in addition to fiction and fanfic. I drink 5-6 cups of black tea a day. I watch more YouTube than anything else. I don't have cable TV. I'm obsessed with cats and cute things. I love Japan and it's culture, food, and language (I've travelled there twice). I'm a food snob. I like gin and craft beer. I like things to be accurate. I have a no-drama policy. I like dry, intelligent humour. I'm short, but my hair isn't. I work in communications. I don't share a lot of personal things on my LJ, but if you PM me, you'll find me pretty open :)
