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!:

Led here by gelsey's post at interhouse_fest ;)


Are you over the age of 18?
Definitely. Almost double the age

Rough location?

What do you post in your journal?
Anything related to my writing and HP, such as reactions to feedback, updates on my fest submissions, HP-related stuff I come across in my life. Might occasionally rant about life as well.

What is your Friending policy?
The more the merrier, as I just started the LJ. Just be polite and let me know in a few words who you are if you want to friend me.

Who are your favorite HP characters? Draco, Hermione, Astoria, Blaise, the twins, Luna, but I have a bit of love for everyone.

What are your favorite pairings?
One of those Draco/Hermione shippers ;-) Draco/Astoria, as well... But I'm definitely not limited and will read a lot of pairings as long as I find the summary interesting. Though I prefer stories with pairings from Harry's generation...

What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?)
As long as it's well written, I read it all--het, slash, femmeslash, even threesomes. I struggle a bit with AU's in general, but if the summary is interesting enough, I might give it a try.

What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes?
I prefer stories that are post-War, with the characters a bit more mature...

What are your squicks?
Non-con/Dub-con most definitely. I don't like stories that are too angsty or too dark, because they tend to hit closer to home than I'd like them to.

What are some of your favorite communities/fests?
I participated in quite a few this year, to get my writing flowing...
dramione_remix was fun this year, I liked interhouse_fest and hp_creatures, and the mini_fest as well.

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in?
I was a huge fan of BtVS and AtS, mostly as a fanfic writer, but also as a mod on a few boards. I knew my details back then.

Other than that: I love Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Firefly, and a few older TV shows, and I need to get back into The Flash...

What are your favorite pairings/characters in those?
AtS: Angel/Cordelia
BtVS: adored both Willow/Oz and Willow/Tara.
I still have a soft spot for most of the characters from those shows. :)

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc)
I write. It's a bit of an obsession right now, actually. I'm reluctant to beta as English is not my native language, but always happy to discuss ideas.

What rating is your journal/work?
I've written up to NC-17, but some works are also more T.

How long have you been in fandom?
I've always been a fan, the books have a prominent place on my shelf. But I only started writing about a year ago...

Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?)
Music: I always say I was raised with Queen, so I tend to prefer rock and folk, soul, etc. But then, I like classical music too (it's great for writing!)
Politics: Not usually something I comment upon...
Hobbies: Writing. *haha* And I'm thinking about taking up guitar lessons once more.

Anything else you'd like to share?
I'm on hiatus from my university studies, trying to cope with something that might be bordering on depression, and delving into writing helps me cope with it.
Besides that, I love pub quizzes, the local pub where I live does one every two weeks, with a surprising amount of HP related questions.

I haven't seen Fantastic Beast yet, I was drowned in work and fests. Still plan to, though. I don't consider Cursed Child canon, and especially dislike the way Astoria was killed off as a character--there are fanfictions that deal better with that trope!

And I'm fluent in three languages (German, English, French--in that order), with knowledge about a couple more. ;-)
