name: EGT

preferred pronoun: she/her

location & timezone: sometimes Mississippi, USA, and Central US timezone, sometimes Rhode Island and Boston, USA, and Eastern US timezone

blog content: I used to post fic here but AO3 is so much easier that I've stopped so this is mainly the odds and ends that all out of my brain

other social media you want us to know about: I am the same everywhere: Twitter, Tumblr, AO3

your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): I joined here years ago entirely to post fic. I've never fully gone away but I've started posting fewer and fewer substantive posts. I hope to start posting more!

tv: I watch a ton of TV. Right now I am watching Mad Men, The Royals, Revenge, Pretty Little Liars, Jane the Virgin, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Archer, Empire, Nashville... See? A LOT of TV. And if there's nothing on my DVR (yes, I still have cable and not Netflix), then I watch HGTV. My all-time favorite television show is The West Wing.

movie: In contrast, I almost never watch movies.

books/comics: I don't read nearly as many books as I should these days, because mainly I read fanfiction.

music: Mostly a little bit everything, but I'm not crazy about country.

celebrities: Can we talk about my current Joseph Gordon-Levitt problem?

ships: Ten/Rose (Doctor Who), John/Sherlock (Sherlock), Mycroft/Lestrade (Sherlock), Arthur/Eames (Inception)

non-fandom interests: ...Are there things outside fandom???? Mainly I read or I write or I watch TV. I am super-dull. I go to yoga a lot, hang out with friends and family when I can, and think a lot of thinky thoughts about fanfiction and fandom. I am supposed to be learning how to play the harp.

occupation: I'm a professor and also a writer.

anything else you want to talk about?: Lilacs are my favorite flower.

And feel free to add a gif here!: That requires more html knowledge than I have.

Fun!

name: Miwahni
preferred pronoun: She/ her
location & timezone: GMT + 10 - eastern coast of Australia - Queensland
blog content: some fannish, sometimes political, mostly day to day stuff.
other social media you want us to know about: I'm Miwahni on twitter and tumblr but not so active there. Also Ao3.
your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): First signed up to LJ in December 2003 and have been here ever since. Posting, reading, commenting - LJ is my main online hangout and my source of fannish stuff.
tv: At present - Broadchurch S2 finished last night and Poldark is starting next week *rubs hands with glee* . Not fannish about either of these but enjoyed Broadchurch immensely. Watched the first tv series of Poldark and looking forward to the remake. Random episodes of Sleepy Hollow, because it makes me giggle.
Fannish TV - Sherlock, The Professionals, Dr Who, Torchwood, Man From UNCLE, Starsky and Hutch, The Sentinel, Star Trek, Blakes 7, Arthur of the Britons. I feel this list should be longer. What have I forgotten?
movie: The Imitation Game, Pride, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (still need to see the sequel!) and looking forward to the new Avengers movie.
books/comics: Books - anything by Melissa Scott especially the Astreiant novels, The Day They Met by Wendy Fries (Sherlock and John, little vignettes about their first meeting), too many other favourite books to name.
music: eclectic mix - classical (love Bach!), Led Zeppelin, Adam Lambert, again, too many to name. Just discovered a band called Spiral Dance and love them to bits!
celebrities: not really into celebrities so much as the characters they play
ships: John/Sherlock, Bodie/Doyle, Avon/Tarrant, Illya/Napoleon, Jim/Blair
non-fandom interests: motor racing, in particular the V8 Supercars. Also cats - pedigreed breeder and long-standing member of the cat fancy in Oz (although just to throw a curve ball, I am NOT the Miwahni who comes up in searches for cat breeders. She bred my first Norwegian Forest Cat and I adopted his prefix as my LJ name when trying to think of something to use that my ex wouldn't immediately think of. Back in the days when he was stalking me something fierce).
occupation: Credit manager
anything else you want to talk about?: not clowns. I don't like clowns.

Totally! *friended back*
My favourite newWho Dr is Nine as well, Christopher Ecclestone absolutely aced the role. I was so thrilled with the reboot, I thought CE did a fantastic job.
My overall fav though is Four; you never really get over your first doctor.

yay!

name: Becky
preferred pronoun: ... I'm a girl?
location & timezone: My location varies. Right now I live near London but I expect it to be near NYC in the near future ♥
blog content: bits and pieces of everything: TV, my art, RL/health, dance, baking projects, beauty/fashion, technology, online happenings... basically word vomit.
other social media you want us to know about: I barely use twitter and tumblr. I only use twitter to stalk follow people in british horse racing (and barely ever check it!) and my computer for whatever reason doesn't like tumblr (this webpage is not responding...)
your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): I have been on here since I was 17 and never left. I guess I just don't like the idea of everyone knowing my business on facebook and such.

tv: I don't watch much but I'm trying to get better. I watch The Flash and I'm hopelessly being on How to Get Away with Murder. My next watching is likely to be The Witches of East End.
movies: I love movies, probably more than TV right now. Recent favorites have included Despicable Me, Sister Act, Big Hero 6, Foxcatcher, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Paddington.
books/comics: Big reader, not so much for comics though I quite like Angel and Faith. Mitch Albom is my current favorite author.
music: I mostly listen to show tunes. Ellie Goulding is my current favorite pop artist.
celebrities: ... not really.
ships: I'm not really a big shipper, though tend to ship everyone with everyone on The Flash.
non-fandom interests: a ridiculous amount. Musical theatre, baking, ballet, religion, reading, art/coloring/journaling, soccer, movies, gaming, horse racing, jazz, traveling, sport, pilates, yoga.

occupation: I am a trainee elementary school teacher and a paraprofessional.

preferred pronoun: she/her

location & timezone: Ohio, GMT-5 (EDT)

blog content: Mostly personal stuff, occasionally fandom-related thoughts or arguments

other social media you want us to know about: I always post to my Dreamwidth account which crossposts here. I'm not picky where people reply, though it should be noted that Dreamwidth has stopped emailing me notifications.

your LJ story: I've been on LJ since 2002. Recently, I stopped posting due to time constraints between work and school, but I recently graduated and am getting back into the swing of things.

tv: Doctor Who, Community, Parks & Rec, Mad Men

movie: Labyrinth (my current obsession)

books/comics: I read a ton, but right now I'm not in any book-related fandoms.

music: Mostly rock, especially if it features a piano. Digging Bowie a lot lately, mostly due to the aforementioned Labyrinth obsession.

celebrities: None. I'm all about the characters they play.

ships: Doctor/Rose, Sarah/Jareth

non-fandom interests: history, superfund sites, Taekwondo, playing the piano, hiking, freshwater fishtank plants, currently in the process of adopting a cat and a dog.

occupation: project coordinator for a consulting firm

anything else you want to talk about?: Tons. But if I got started, I'd probably never stop and who needs that?

Totally!

Sort of tangential to that: I work with a guy who knows I read fanfic and he assumed I read David Bowie RPF and now I'm careful not to talk about Bowie around him because I don't want him to think I actually do. No offense to RPF fans; it's just not my bag.

Hi hi hi, Hope I am not too late to this party!

name: Hedge (I am hedgehogandotter at tumblr, but had to shorten the name for LJ)

preferred pronoun: she/her

location & timezone: Washington, DC EST

blog content: Sherlock, Hot British men, Inception. I sometimes post personal stuff on LJ, sometimes complain about tumblr on LJ. I post vanishingly little on this site though if I'm honest

other social media you want us to know about: Tumblr is my primary home

your LJ story: I am pretty new to this site. I sort of did the whole fandom thing backwards. I started at AO3, fell in love with fic and got interested in the community I saw was clearly happening on tumblr. Then after s3 aired there was a big push to readopt LJ when things were getting a bit uncomfortably nasty in the Sherlock fandom so I wandered over here, but I haven't used it much at all.

tv: So much TV. I love British TV most of all, but lots of American shows too. I mean, if you want to talk TV really, how much time do you have?

movie: As in favorite movie? Again, so so many, but some of my most favorites are Gosford Park, Joe Versus the Volcano, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and as I've recently discovered, everything Tom Hardy is in.

books/comics: My favorite authors include Douglas Coupland, Douglas Adams, and Nick Hornby, and I love YA fiction. But really, I mostly read fic. I've never gotten into comics but I do enjoy comic-based movies.

music: I love music. Favorite artists include Joe Henry, The National, Mike Doughty, Johnny Marr, anything Motown, and the Dave Matthews Band. Tip of the iceberg though.

celebrities: Martin Freeman, Tom Hardy, I've been a bit burned out on Benedict lately, but I still love him. I think celebrity culture kind of sucks though.

ships: Johnlock, Arthur/Eames, and much to my surprise Harry/Eggsy of late. I'll read the occasional Mystrade, and I also kind of like Greg/Molly. But mostly the first two.

non-fandom interests: Hmm...I think I've covered most of my interests already.

occupation: I'm an administrative director at a non-profit. I don't really want to talk about work.

anything else you want to talk about?: Always willing to chat about feminism and other women's issues as well as just generally trying to survive and being an adult and how hard that is sometimes. I also have MS and would be happy to talk about it if you have any questions.

And feel free to add a gif here!: I don't actually know how to add a gif.

preferred pronoun: she/her
location & timezone: CET (Central European time, GMT+1)
blog content: fanish things, rl stuff, reviews, recs, my own little fics

other social media you want us to know about: I love AO3, think the message system on tumblr is weird and hate fb. A kudos/heart button on LJ would be a blast.

your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): Well, I'm still fairly new to the party (1st LJ-anniversary in a few days). My main fandom is mostly active on LJ and I love the chilled atmosphere of it. I've made some really good friends here and wouldn't want to miss them in my life anymore.

movie: I'm not regularly watching movies, the last three I saw: Imiatation Game, The Medicus, Mockingjay I

books/comics: I love books and always will. Lately I've abandond them to read mostly fanfiction, but I do read them. Mostly m/m romance and I love good fantasy (YA, high) and SF

music: I never leave the house without my headphones, mobile and e-reader. I can read and listen to music and walk at the same time. I can only multitask when music is involved. Not a big fan of classic music, heavy metal and rap without melody. Anything else goes.

celebrities: Nah, not really. I always love charas in books, series and stories more. And though I find some rock stars sexy (aka man with smoky eyes and/or leather trousers), I'm too dignified to get crazy over someone.

ships: Jesus, mostly slash, a bit femslash and least likely het, two main ships- Harry/Draco, Sherlock/John, I do love Sherstrade and threesomes too, Percy/XXX (Percy Jackson shall have all the fun), Will/Nico (PJO) Arthur/Eames, Mikey/Harvey (Suits), Merlin/Arthur, Loki/XXX (yeah trickster god, Avenger or not), Brad/Nate (Generation Kill), I've forgot someone...

non-fandom interests: reading, blogging about books, yoga

your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): used to be really active, then had kidney transplant and tried or get back into life, but it seems people have kind of moved on without me (a friend of mine had a baby and didn't even tell me) soooo, am retreating back to the internet.

tv: supernatural, doctor who, Sherlock, Merlin, firefly, others I cannot think of right now.

movie: I vary wildly, but I found I hate gory horror movies and ones where animals are hurt.

books/comics: I'm bad, mostly fanfic. But I do have any awesome collection of Chicken soup for the Soul.

name: Behind flock, sorry, I'm weird. (Speaking of which, most of my LJ is flocked.)

preferred pronoun: Female.

location & timezone: Maryland, EST.

blog content: Fandom (both specific and general), discussion posts and reviews, commentary on social media, commentary on our crazypants world. ;) I also talk about writing and entertainment a lot, as well as education. I don't really post about day-to-day things very often, but I'm not impersonal either.

other social media you want us to know about: I have a "fandom" Facebook of sorts, so feel free to let me know if you're interested.

your LJ story, if you wish (when did you get here, have you always stayed here, are you trying to get back in the habit, etc.): I've been on LJ for years... technically since 2003, but I really only started using it seriously in 2004-2005. I've had this account for a little over ten years.

tv: Parks and Recreation, Buffyverse, Firefly, Castle, Mad Men; my on-and-off shows are Community, Doctor Who and Sleepy Hollow.

movie: Little Miss Sunshine, Secondhand Lions, Legally Blonde, Galaxy Quest. As you can tell, I like a little variety. :)

books/comics: Earth's Children series, Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Lovely Bones, Funny in Farsi.

music: A variety, but I tend to lean towards country and folk and folk rock.

celebrities: I care ZILCH about celebrities. Even the shows they're in. Half the time it takes me a season to learn the lead cast's names, unless they're really famous or something.

ships: Eh. Remus/Tonks, Ron/Hermione (Harry Potter), Leslie/Ben, April Andy (Parks and Recreation), Wash/Zoe (Firefly); I have other ships but those are the only ones I really feel strongly about.

non-fandom interests: History, archiving, some crafts, short films, religion and spirituality (any belief system, I love hearing about people's beliefs), mythology, folklore, traveling.

occupation: Desk jockey.

anything else you want to talk about?: Not really.

in the words of Sam Beckett: "Oh, boy!"
name: Angie Fiedler Sutton, and fanfic pseudonym Kylara Ingress

preferred pronoun: she/her

location & timezone: Los Angeles, PST

blog content/LJ story: my LiveJournal was originally started because my 'regular' blog was performing arts only, and I wanted to write other stuff (editorials, reviews of non-performing arts things, and hopefully my fiction), but then in February 2013, I had my first fanfic idea in over ten years (John Watson is a talkative little bugger). This was before I discovered AO3, so I posted it on LJ with it locked to friends only, as I used a pseudonym back when I wrote fanfic in the early 2000s and I felt it was only appropriate to re-use her for my Sherlock fics as well.

Then, in fall of 2014, as part of my figuring out what to do with the content on my thesis, I ended up creating my regular blog (angiefsutton.com), so I am in a slow process to move everything non fandom over to that location and using LJ as a fandom specific, eventually changing the username over to Kylara's.

other social media you want us to know about: angiefsutton on Twitter and Tumblr (Kylara is also on Tumblr as kylaraingress, and AO3 as KylaraIngress).

tv: I've been waffling on Sherlock, and have – for better or for worse – slowly been falling OUT of love with Doctor Who. I loved Marvel's Agent Peggy Carter, and watch Castle, Supernatural (although thinking of giving that up), MasterChef Junior (total guilty pleasure on that one), Gotham (primarily for Sean Pertwee's Alfred), and Marvel's Agents of SHIELD (although am still waiting for it to be a Whedon show).

movie: Don't watch a whole lot of movies (especially as I just got over being a screener for a film festival), but LOVED Kingsman.

books/comics: I'll have to copy EGT's answer: I don't read nearly as many books as I should these days, because mainly I read fan fiction.

music: I have a very eclectic taste, but have been recently taken by the string quartet that backed Neil Gaiman when I saw him in London called FourPlay. I also got to recently sit in on a recording session for Jill Sobule, who still rocks, and have been recently taken by cover songs – especially unusual ones (like Karen Souza's "Creep").

celebrities: If you look at my 'popular tags' on my Tumblr, Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch stick right out. However, I have recently fallen head over heels in love celebrity-wise with Haley Atwell (see obsession with Peggy Carter) and Allison Tolman (from Fargo), and have an on again/off again Twitter flirtation with Marc Evan Jackson (Sparks Nevada from The Thrilling Adventure Hour).

ships: primarily John/Sherlock, and back when I wrote Quantum Leap, Sam/Al. I'm also a firm believer that if it's written well enough, I can be convinced to read any pairing (or for that matter, any kink), and once inspired a writer to write Hamburger Helper/Arby's Glove slash.

non-fandom interests: theatre, journalism (esp. for SciFi4Me), and sleep (not mentioned above, and technically fan related, but just in case I listen to quite a few podcasts)

occupation: I'm currently an operations specialist for HONK, an app that works like Uber/Lyft, but for roadside assistance. In other words, you use the app when you need a tow, jump start, flat changed, or other roadside assistance, and we find the nearest tow truck who can help you with the quickest ETA.

anything else you want to talk about?: I spent two months in London last summer, and I'm still reeling

And feel free to add a gif here!:
