A warm welcome to [ profile] igrab, [ profile] iwantasoda, [ profile] kilobites and [ profile] erkn to my journal from the LBGTQA Friending Meme~ I hope that you will not find me too annoying.

And a welcome back to [ profile] cazzwell since we somehow managed to unfriend each other. :1

I am a generally pleasant, sociable person who likes making new friends so don't be wary of talking to me <3 If you want to know anything I'm pretty much an open book, feel free to ask! All my contact info is in the second post of my journal, feel free to add me anywhere. =)

In other news, I'm heading down to my dad's tomorrow (or, well, today by my watch, I am going to get no sleep ever), and we're going to see a pantomime - Aladdin. On Friday afternoon, we're going to Iceland for the weekend. I'm not sure if I'm excited yet, but I guess I'll see if I can actually get to sleep tomorrow night. I can't sleep NOW when I've been tired all day so I guess I might be. I like planes. My sister doesn't. I'm a little concerned she won't like anything that's available to eat since apparently we have a set menu, but hopefully they'll be prepared for things like that. I really want to try puffin. I know, I'm awful. =V

We come back to dad's on Monday then back home on Tuesday. I know I'm going to miss my bed. Aaaah.

I don't tend to miss people, unless there's no chance that I can get in touch with them. Sometimes I miss my dad. Right now, my mum and sister are away in Majorca and while I don't particularly miss my sister (sorry Amy =P) I have realised today that I do miss my mum. I didn't get to say a proper goodbye to her since I was stuck in the bathroom with a stomach ache and I'm currently wearing her dressing gown because it smells like her. As nice as it has been to have the option to just.. sleep when I want to.. because John doesn't bug me about when I'm asleep.. I still miss my mum.

I've started shipping Mexico/Canada. What is this.

Oh, and a meme. Stolen, naturally.

• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions (but only if you want to).

From [ profile] synnerxx 

-What was your first fandom?

My very first? Gosh that's thinking a long way back. I suppose it'd be Harry Potter, though I fell out of it a lonnng time ago.

-What's your (current? all time?) favorite song?

Hmm. I'd say Take On Me by Aha is definitely my all time favourite song. :B

-Who was your first ever OTP and why?

First ever OTP that I can remember would coincide with my first fandom, and it was Sirius/Remus. ^-^ I have no idea why xD

-Can you play any instruments?

I own a guitar, which I can't play very well. I used to play the clarinet but I can't anymore.

-Favorite thing to read about? (Can be genre, pairing, kink, anything really.)

Uh~ My favourite genre is fantasy. Does that count? :D


From [ profile] vampire_scooby 

What is your favorite fandom and why?

Hmm I guess my favourite fandom would be Hetalia, though I don't tend to directly involve myself in the fandom outside of writing fics and roleplaying (which I do off LJ). Too much drama in there xD

Do you have any silblings?

I do! I have one sister, younger than me. Her name is Amy and we're pretty much nothing alike.

What is your favorite video game, if you have one. If you don't like video games, why is that?

Ooh that's a tough one. I guess it'd be a throw-up between Fallout 3 and Assassin's Creed 2. I love them both, even though they're so different visually - they both have great stories, interesting NPCs, and I find myself getting emotionally engaged with them.

What is your Hetalia OTP, and why do you love them so much?

I would say it's a very close finish between USUK and PrUK. USUK I love simply because of how sweet it can be, how angsty, and how easy it is to write them in practically any situation. It was my first OTP in the fandom and I think I'll always love it. PrUK is a more recent thing, and I like it because my god it makes so much sense. There's a lot of potential for fighting and anger between them as well as them being bros because before WW1 Prussia was a country that we allied with on pretty much everything. I love pairings that make historical sense.

What is your favorite live action TV show?

I don't actually watch a lot of live action TV shows and I certainly don't follow any in the religious way that I've seen people follow some series, but I will change the channel to watch some of them. I'd say my favourite is probably NCIS.


From [ profile] yingyang_700 

1) Describe how (in what manner) you open a gift-wrapped box/package/whatever.

Hm.. usually I just rip all the paper off. Or I get the dog to help me... because it's funny.

2) What's your favorite way to spend a rainy day?

I would say the same way I spend any other day. Only I might actually open my curtains so I can watch.

3) What criteria do you use when choosing a fandom?

Criteria? Hm. I don't really 'choose' fandoms. When I find something I like I get into it. If there are crazy fans I don't associate with them, and if there's drama I don't go near it. I just like what I like and to hell with everyone else XP

4) Do you like raisins?

Yes. Yes I do.

5) (This is the silly question I always put at the very end) Simon says to do something ridiculous and possibly life-threatening. Do you do it?

... That depends. Do I get a reward? >o>;

Pick a character and I will give and explain the top three ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

I reserve the right to say "I have no idea," or "I don't write them."

Day 07 – Your best friend, in great detail

Pardon me while I assault your eyes with this day-glo coloured font.

My best friends have never really been what you could call 'local', and my current one, who I hope will remain in the position for a long time, is no different. She's American, small and pretty with a beautiful singing voice and is a saint for putting up with me and my dorkery/mood swings. Sure, we disagree, but we don't argue, which is nice, 'cause I have a history of losing friends (by no fault of my own, I might add.. we just tend to drift apart).

I can't say I can give much 'detail'. She's smart, funny, we can waffle on about the same things for hours on end, but we've never met. I don't go in for the whole 'you don't know a person until you've met them' deal, because I simply don't believe it's true.

Oh ya, and her name is Alexa. Yeah I'm talking about you bb <3

Day 08 – A moment, in great detail

A moment? Any moment? How about this one? I'm lying on my clean bed, with my laptop propped up off the quilt so it doesn't overheat. Three of my messenger windows are flashing - one is my boyfriend, and the other two are msn groups. The screen on my television just moved to the idle, camera-drifting mode of Fallout: New Vegas and I can feel this strange, steadily rising nausea in my throat for some unknown reason. I'm cold - my nose is, anyway - and I've been meaning to change for a while but haven't gotten around to it yet. So, yeah.. that's this moment.

Day 09
– Your beliefs, in great detail

I'm not a religious person, and I never have been, having had a deep dislike for all things religious from a young age. I believe in people. I'm pro-choice, atheist, and react very strongly to people who try to push their views onto me. I believe in helping people as much as I can, and I try to live up to that. To be honest, I don't really want to go into great detail here.

It's simple enough, really. I will respect the beliefs of another if they respect my right not to hold the same beliefs.

The Other Questions )
blood_winged: (N.Italy x Germany)
Day 05 – Your definition of love, in great detail

Hm. Tricky one. I don't know if love is something I could 'define' past 'a series of chemical impulses in the brain'.

But that would be terribly unromantic, wouldn't it?

Love can mean all kinds of things to me. I love my parents, friends, boyfriend, my dog, my possessions, my favourite things, all in different ways. I see love as something beyond a simple emotional attachment - the things that I love are, on varying levels, all essential to my happiness and when one of those things gets damaged or taken away it can impact very negatively on me. I handle losing friends very badly, and if I am somebody's friend, and I say that I love them, I don't just mean it as an off-hand comment.

You know, I really thought I'd ramble on for longer about this.

Day 06 – Your day, in great detail

My day was pretty typical of how my days have been lately. I woke up after almost exactly seven hours of sleep to hear the faint sound of a house alarm going off in the distance. I went on ebuddy while I waited for the rest of my brain to wake up, and talked to a few people, then turned my laptop on. When I got hungry I got up and put some potato wedges in, but they tasted kind of funky so I didn't eat many of them.

I went downstairs and turned the fire on, and spent the day down there with the dog. I got very distracted by RPing. Got dressed. I washed the dishes. When my parents came home I came upstairs, and here I am. Later I will have a shower, and hopefully do some more RPing, and maybe, finally do some work for university. I also need to work on a tattoo design for one of my exes.

My life is not interesting.

The Other Questions )
blood_winged: (Prussia)
Day 03 – Your parents, in great detail

Generally, I like my parents. Usually. I've never been denied anything I've needed (note, not 'wanted', 'needed'), and I've always been clothed, fed, and encouraged.

My mum's name is Janet Martlew, and she is a small woman who I like to hug because she's nearly five inches shorter than me. I get my hair and the majority of my looks from her (and her in turn from my grandmother, so I know what I'm going to look like, more or less!), but practically none of my personality - I'll go into that in a bit.

She spent five years raising me and my sister by herself (with financial help from daddy darling) until she met her second husband, my current step-dad John. We argue sometimes, though it used to be worse, since she often struggles to understand me and the way I look at things. She has a very strong sense of fairness, which can be her downfall at times as it often leads to her only seeing things in black and white, but it also always means that if she buys one of us something, then she has to buy the other one something too.

She's also painfully computer illiterate, and while she can type very fast she can't deal with everyday things like error messages.

There isn't really much I can say about her. We have very little in common and I can't really talk about the things that interest me because it all goes right over her head, so we don't spend a lot of time together.

My dad's name is Philip Andrew Southwell and he left my mum when I was four and a half, for a reason I later found to be untrue (read: I believed my mum until I was old enough to be curious). We didn't used to get on that well, my reasoning being he didn't really know how to deal with us as kids, and by the time I was fourteen I was very like him in personality - you know what they say, the worst person to get along with is yourself. I get a lot of my personality, interests and hobbies from my dad, much to my mum's occasional annoyance.

He lives by himself and has done since he got out of the mistake of a second marriage that he was in up until a few years ago (yes dad, I know you're reading this). My sister and I go to stay with him sometimes and if we're in need of something and he can provide it, he will. We get on a lot better now and he's usually the one to talk me out of my raging against my mother, and we talk near enough every night over msn (because he actually knows how to use a computer). Generally he understands the things I waffle about and if he doesn't, he'll listen anyway, rather than doing what my mum does and telling me to be quiet.

My step-dad is John Martlew, and my mum married him when I was thirteen. He's not at all like my dad, but we usually get along (however, when we don't, it can get quite bad). He's a bit of an oaf who doesn't know his own strength and has hurt me accidentally in the past, but he has a good heart and is easy to get along with most of the time. His main bad point is he can be incredibly childish, which is something that completely infuriates me, but I'm always told to not let it rile me up.

Easier said than done.

Day 04 – What you ate today, in great detail

When I got up I had some oven chips and mayonnaise. The chips weren't amazing but I was hungry. I also had a cup of tea. I haven't had my dinner yet but I shall be having savoury rice and some salmon.. possibly another cup of tea. I'll probably snack later. I don't eat much.
