About Me

Since I'm trying to get new friends and have had a couple already. I'm going to talk a little more about myself.

I have been involved in fandom since about the year 2000. My first fandoms were Harry Potter, Gundam Wing, and Sailor Moon. I was reading fics on FFnet when there were only six anime on the site which if you look at in now it's changed a whole lot. I primarily stalked Geocities shrines and anime music download sites (where the person would update weekly and post 5 new Japanese songs a week, the good old days).

My first LJ was in 2006 and I joined FFnet in 2005 I believe after 5 years of lurking only (and watching fandom drama unfold). I posted several fic that were never finished because I'm lazy let's be real here. I was on LJ through 2011 before leaving for tumblr where I've remained. I've had two tumblr accounts, one called fleurbleues which I abandoned because I needed a fresh start in fandom as I was following too many negative people who had taken away my enjoyment of fandom. So I now have a new fandom name.

I've been in many different fandoms, like the very thought of saying every fandom I've ever been in is exhausting. Maybe I'll make you a list. Anime is my primary source for fandom but it fluctuates every year. I use to fluctuate too when it came to reading slash, femslash, or het but now I pretty much read any at any given time. There are a few fandoms I'll always be a part of Sailor Moon, Harry Potter, and Fullmetal Alchemist are good examples of that. One Piece will be once I catch up.

From 2007-2010 I focused more on reading original slash stories. I'm very sad the original slash community seems to have broken apart since the people I followed started publishing.

I spend most of my time reading fanfics and looking at fanart. Although I'm trying to write more fanfics and finish them. I'm also working on a few original stories and hope to put them on Wattpad soon. I really regret those years I spent lurking instead of creating and making friends. I think I'm better about that stuff now.

I have a lot of interests outside of fandom. I have a horse and have been riding horses since I was 11. They're a bit of an obsession of mine. I love animals though. I like sewing and knitting. Obviously I like writing. I love reading and always do a Goodreads Challenge. I also try to do NANOWRIMO every year and other NANO challenges throughout the year.

Occassionally I may talk about the RPG or board games I play with my friends. I love games and am thinking of doing some Let's Plays since everyone who watches me play thinks I'd do a good job.

I also collect dolls but I've slowed down a lot as space and money are huge detractors. I would love to get more seriously into Japanese Lolita but I haven't. I really like fashion especially historical fashion and Japanese Lolita, but I also enjoy Red Carpet events. On the opposite side of that spectrum I enjoy watching hockey and baseball but I'll rarely talk about them. Unless the Blues finally win a Stanley Cup for the first time ever in the franchises history, then I'm sorry but that might be the only thing I talk about for a week.

Right now I'm in my last year of school ever. These next two months will be very busy but I'll have my last summer off. I'm married to a wonderful man, but we don't have children yet although it's something I would like (just after school). I have a dog, a cat, and a horse.

As far as politics go I'm liberal although I probably won't talk about it too much, but in this age of Trump who knows right.

The thing I wish I could do again is travel but money is tight. I'd love to go back to Japan. I'm planning a trip to the beach this summer though so yay. I like to go to anime conventions.

Anyway that's all I think to say at the moment. Feel free to ask me any questions you have and/or introduce yourself here.
