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!:

Name? Kelly
Are you over the age of 18? You bet.
Rough location? USA
What do you post in your journal? HP fics, recs, personal doings, movie reviews, political rants (especially now)
What is your Friending policy? Please introduce yourself (just leave a comment to this post if you like). I don't friend empty journals or those written in languages I don't know.

Who are your favorite HP characters? Minerva McGonagall is my OTC. I also love all the older women of HP (Pomfrey, Sprout, Hooch, Amelia Bones, Rosmerta, Augusta Longbottom, Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank, etc). Among males, I'm partial to Severus Snape, Alastor Moody, Aberforth Dumbledore, Kingsley Shackelbolt.
What are your favorite pairings? Minerva paired with any of the older women except Sybill. Minerva paired with Severus or Alastor or Aberforth.
What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?) I'm up for anything that is well-written and in canon character, though I have a soft spot for femmeslash with older women.
What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes? I love missing scenes, canon moments told from other POVs, voyeurism, magical and non-magical AUs (provided everyone is IC), hurt/comfort, angst, stories about clever magic, stories about wizarding politics, power issues, rare pairs, post-DH fic, etc. I adore book fic, library fic, anything to do with reading.
What are your squicks? incest, teacher/student (while the student still is), mommy/daddy age play, total fluff, fic that messes with characters' canon ages (such as stories that say things like, "for the purposes of this fanfic, I've made Minerva the same age as the Marauders. . ." )
What are some of your favorite communities/fests? The late, lamented hp_beholder will always hold a special place for me. I adore hoggywartyxmas and hp_halloween; I also enjoy Daily Deviant's Kinky Kristmas and mini_fest, among others.

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in? Downton Abbey, Star Trek: Voyager
What are your favorite pairings/characters in those? Always the older women: Lady Violet, Isobel Crawley, Carson/Hughes, Mrs Patmore from Downton Abbey; Captain Kathryn Janeway from Voyager, paired especially with Tom Paris, Seven of Nine, Inspector Kashyk

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc) I write fic. I'm one of the editors of quibbler_report (a rec letter for HP rare pairs and gen). For five years, I modded minerva_fest, and I provide a weekly rec for one_bad_man.
What rating is your journal/work? anything from the G-est of G ratings to dark NC-17.
How long have you been in fandom? In HP fandom since 2008
Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?) No pets. I don't actually watch much TV. Musically, I like classic rock and Big Band and jazz and classical. Family: I'm an old-style lesbian with a partner who has a son in college. We've been together for fifteen years. Politically, I'm firmly a leftist/liberal.
Anything else you'd like to share? For a living, I teach English at the college level; I'm a book collector; I'm an amateur actor.

Book collector, fics about reading... a woman after my own heart! I've seen you around on my travels, Kelly, and always admired your eloquence. Friends?

Definitely; thanks! Book fic ftw.

I've always wanted to be your friend, and since you're on this meme, I'm going to be ballsy and ask if it's okay to friend you. Friends?
kellychamblisskellychambliss on December 21st, 2016 07:04 pm (UTC)
Definitely! Thank you.

I've seen you around probably ever since I joined fests a couple years ago - you seem really awesome, would you like to be friends? :D
kellychambliss: Xmaskellychambliss on December 26th, 2016 05:28 am (UTC)
Definitely! Thank you.

Hi :) I know we're kind of on opposite ends of the fandom, so I've never friended you because I wasn't sure how comfortable you'd be with my posts, but I just wanted to say that I love how active you are in fandom and appreciate the work you do for quibbler_report and the other things you mod.

I love Minerva! She's awesome!

It was so kind of you to leave this lovely comment! You really made my day, kitty_fic. Thank you so much.

It's true that I don't spend a lot of time on the m/m slash side of fandom, but please feel free to friend if you want to. We're all in HP together /g/.
Kittykitty_fic on January 21st, 2017 12:31 am (UTC)
I'm happy to have made you happy!

I'd love to friend you then if you don't mind! I'm sure there will still be overlap :)

Yay! Long Live HP!
