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? Under flock. (For the record, because I'm paranoid RL people will find this, not the other way around. I know I'm paranoid.)

Are you over the age of 18? Yes.

Rough location? Maryland.

What do you post in your journal? Snarky commentary on anything I can snark about, more serious commentary, meta/reviews/reaction posts, fanfiction, thoughts on original writing. I have RL posts too, but I tend to be not too heavy on it.

What is your Friending policy? First, my LJ is very Friends Only. Second, I friend people as long as they tell me who they are and/or I think we have enough in common, so feel free to friend, just let me know if you do.

Who are your favorite HP characters? Luna, Tonks, Hermione, although it also sometimes depends on the book.

Also, Queenie and Jacob are my favorite Fantastic Beasts characters.

What are your favorite pairings? Remus/Tonks if I ignore DH (or apply headcanon that better explains their... weirdness), Bill/Fleur and Queenie/Jacob in Fantastic Beasts. Also, said movie has piqued my interest in the Luna/Rolf pairing.

What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?) I'm bigger on pairings that either appeared in canon or seem consistent with canon, or at least don't seem to contradict it. Having said that, I generally read fics that aren't gen per se, but don't solely focus on romance.

What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes?

Themes: Sibling relationships, friends/colleagues/comrades as family, friends who fall in love, morally ambiguous Slytherins, the darker sides of HPverse.

What are some of your favorite communities/fests? rt_morelove is the only HP fest I take part in these days, tbh.

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in? Parks and Recreation, Buffy, Firefly.

What are your favorite pairings/characters in those? Leslie/Ben, Willow/Tara, Willow/Oz, Xander/Cordelia, Zoe/Wash.

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc) I read fic, read meta, and write both of those things. I used to love looking at fanart, but have lost interest in it, for some reason. Like I said above, I don't really care about the shippy stuff.

What rating is your journal/work? PG-13, for the most part.

How long have you been in fandom? Sixteen years! I stick with things, let me tell you. :P I've been on LJ for twelve years, thirteen if you count my very first LJ in 2003. I don't, because I was an emo high school senior/immature fangirl, which was very much reflected in 87% of my posts. :P

Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?) I'm kind of winded at this point, quite honestly. ;) I will say I'm huge on learning about other cultures, and I like spiritual discussion (any faith/belief) as long as it's not a trap for an argument. I'm also passionate about human rights and feminism, although I tend to discuss that more on Facebook than LJ. I'll happily chime into many a rant, though. :)

Anything else you'd like to share?

See above.

ETA: Although one thing I may as well note is that I don't really consider The Cursed Child canon, and I'm iffy on whether or not I do FB. It's less about quality and more the fact that they're different mediums that came years after DH. I didn't like The Cursed Child at all, so I generally ignore it; I liked enough about Fantastic Beasts, however, that I'm actually eager to see more fics that incorporate the movie's canon or that focus entirely on the movie. (I want a fic with Newt Scamander dealing with Lockhart sooo badly.)
