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? Angela
Are you over the age of 18? Very much so
Rough location? Alabama
What do you post in your journal? A little fic, an occasional real life post
What is your Friending policy? Over 18, and it helps if we have common interests

Who are your favorite HP characters? Draco, Snape, Weasley twins
What are your favorite pairings? H/D is my OTP. I'll read others sometimes, though.
What do you enjoy? (Het? Slash? Femmeslash? Threesomes? Modern AU? Canon?) Slash, occasional threesomes, just about any setting
What are some of your favorite kinks/themes/genres/tropes? This is a hard one. I like just about anything.
What are your squicks? Main character death, infidelity
What are some of your favorite communities/fests? Pretty much anything h/d

What other fandoms are you a part of/a fan of/participate in? None really. I've read some Merlin and Teen Wolf fic, but I don't really participate in those fandoms.
What are your favorite pairings/characters in those? Merlin/Arthur, Derek/Stiles

What do you do in fandom? (artist/writer/beta/graphics maker/mod/lurker/etc) Very small bit of writing, even less graphics, I mostly read and lurk, but comment when a fic really moves me.
What rating is your journal/work? adult
How long have you been in fandom? About 7 years, I think
Any other interests you want us to know about? (Music? TV shows? Politics? Family? Pets? School? Hobbies?) I'm a 40something married woman with three children. My oldest is 18, which still blows my mind. I've been a stay at home mom most of his life, but I'm currently in grad school with the end goal of teaching high school math. I used to cook and sew, but these days fandom is my main hobby. We have a lovely dog named Melody. She is mostly some kind of hound, not entirely sure. We got her from the local shelter in August after losing our 14yo dog Noelle in June. Melody's an overgrown puppy, and it's a lot like having a toddler again. LOL My preferred music is classic rock, though it bugs me to no end that the music I grew up with is now "classic." I'm a sci-fi/fantasy type. Love Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who and the like. I'm also a big reader, mostly in the same genres, though I enjoy some light romance on occasion as well.
Anything else you'd like to share? No, that's probably about it.

The first Star Trek I watched was Next Generation, when I was in college, so that's always been my favorite. My kids recently watched all the Star Trek on Netflix, so I've had exposure to them all. Yep, NG still the fav. I have enjoyed the new movies as well, though.

As to squicks, I will read pretty uch anything, but I HATE when there is no warning fr death.

Sure, friends! I'm enjoying your advent story, by the way. :)
