I've never done one of these before, but the time feels ripe, so:1.
I'm 24, a woman, queer, poly
, mixed race
first-generation Chinese and German born and raised in the Bay Area, California. I'm single and currently doing a year of celibacy. I'm not interested in marriage; I am interested in having and/or adopting children someday.2.
I speak a little bit of a lot of languages. The closest I come to actually speaking another one is Spanish, though I occasionally sing in Cantonese in public, just to keep things interesting.3.
I work with fire sprinkler systems
. I am the only woman technician I know and I'm kinda impressed with myself in that regard while simultaneously being scared shitless of the awe-inspiring power of water under high pressures. I am not planning on this field as a career, but that won't stop me from lecturing you if you write a fic where someone hovering a lighter under one sprinkler head sets the entire system off.4.
I'm multifannish and multishippy and I adore
polyships. I write too much fic and can't seem to crack 10,000 words to save my life. I'm passionate about canon: witness my love for creating/consuming picspams
. I love AUs and crossovers of all stripes. Crack
, in particular, holds a really special place in my heart -- it's one of the few genres I'll read in any fandom, regardless of my familiarity with it. I JUST REALLY WANT TO READ MORE STORIES ABOUT MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS AS INVERTEBRATES/PLANTS/ROBOTS AND/OR ALIENS, OKAY?5.
I am way more likely to be in a small fandom (or many of them) at any given time than a large one. I have a tendency to love prematurely canceled shows like BURNING. I also really wish a fandom existed around Julie E. Czerneda's writing, because I ♥ her stuff.6.
I talk about my emotions
a lot because I spent a huge chunk of my life disconnected from them and I'm learning to renavigate the territory. I don't expect hugs or advice unless I ask, and I cut generously precisely because I know this stuff isn't for everyone (I know I can't always handle reading about other people's emotional processes). You are always welcome to share your own experiences if reading about my stuff brings something up for you. I've done holistic-style therapy on and off for the past couple of years and I like it a lot.7.
I'm spiritual and mostly confused about it; I was raised without religion. I want to believe more than I'm actually able to believe.8.
I have no internet at home at the moment, which leads me to lurking on my phone a lot and results in me being kinda commentspammy when I do find time in front of a computer.9.
Things that are welcome here: lurking; random drive-by comments; talking amongst yourselves in the comments; subscribing/unsubscribing at will (I turned off notifs awhile ago and me checking my profile is a completely sporadic exercise). I grant blanket-access unless you're an icon-only journal and might still even accidentally grant access then. Not much is locked.10.
Some things I love, in no particular order: organization (particularly centralization, tags
and indices, oh, indices ♥); fruit; cooking veggie food; sewing with tiny, precise stitches; doppelcest (biggest surefire kink everrr, closed followed by cybernetic lifeforms, alien porn and bff ships); sleeping outside; the sun and nude sunbathing in it; the macro feature on cameras; dancing; second person and lyrical prose; hiking and running; my family; my friends; squee; marathoning; cheesecake and white chocolate; etc. etc. etc.
And if you feel like sharing some things good to know about you/completely random things, be my guest. :)
