I'm sort of trying to find something...fandom friends, or maybe just friends.


I'm 35, bi, gf, married with a kid. I live in Wales, I work in a pharmacy and write fiction and poetry too. 

I've got five cats and four chickens.

I will always love Stargate (SG-1 and SGA) and Trek (TNG, DS9, VOY) I have passing interests in other and currently love Dragon Age, MCU, Steven Universe, Brooklyn 99. I don't write as much fanfic as I used to still have a lot of ideas peculating up there. I miss being part of fandom though I've always felt like I was on the fringes.


I ship f/f and het mostly, and I read that too but I will write anything. Any pairing. I'm either mental or gifted. Not sure which.

I love old films from the beggining to the 70s. Love MST3K. The new series was great. I love crap films, I hate reboots but I will watch them sometimes.


I have a post here that has more about me if you want to check it out.

I wanted to check out some scheduled posts another Imzy user had made, but found that they weren't available. The dreaded 404 pages are popping up now.

I do hope the site is somehow archived. :'( I also hope the staff is doing okay. I can't imagine how they're feeling about all this.

Does anyone else get really cranky walking past Groot socks and Harry Potter scarves and wish we'd had merch like that when older fandoms were big? Even LOTR fandom kinda got shafted on merch because the company was struggling with trying to figure out how to make geeky stuff for adults. The prop replicas were nice, but the T shirts and stuff were pretty much logos across our chests. HP and ASOIF and Star Wars gets all this amazing, in-universe gear.

What do you think? Are you jealous of how Hot Topic drips in Supernatural gear? Did you get lots of fanmade or cafe press gear? Or are you not into merch.

Me I am over here still trying to find someone to help me custom print fabric for reasons.

I am also a multishipper (obvs) who doesn't do ship wars; I ship and let ship. That doesn't always seem to be the case on tumblr, so just know I'm old school regarding that. I've been on DW for 7 years, but am fully integrating now via the great migration from LJ. I'm also on AO3 and tumblr. My journal is 90% fandom related. Please come and be my friend! I miss the discussions about fandom that occurred on LJ in its heyday.

About Me:  My favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction. I've been on live journal and later dreamwidth since 2002. I'm in my forties, bi-polar, possibly ADD, identify as queer, and currently not sufficiently employed. I am a lurker by inclination and due to social malfunction. :D

About My Journal: It's part personal journal, part writing journal. I talk a lot about real life issues, my job hunt, previous jobs and my extremely on hold attempt to write content for content providers.  I also have a secondary writing journal that doesn't have a lot on it at the moment. Both journals have tip jars, and I've made a few attempts at affiliate marketing that didn't work very well because everyone is also broke. :D

What I Write: Original fic, fan fic, science fiction, fantasy, porn.  Meta, book reviews, long winded rants about writing and worldbuilding. (Mostly in the past, though I'd like to get back to that. I had a couple of years where I didn't write at all on dreamwidth because of Real Life Issues.)

What I Don't Write: I'm not sure I have a "what I don't write" just a "I'm less likely to write." For instance, I am really unlikely to write dystopias because dystopias are depressing and also kind of boring to me. I also won't write "angst," for pretty much the same reason! 

What I Read: Fantasy, science fiction, some mystery, romance (fan fic that's pairing centric specifically.) Meta/Fandom/Science Fiction/Fantasy as-a-subject, non fiction/history/forensics/interesting stuff for research purposes.  When I was younger I had an extreme love of post-apocalyptic fiction of the "small group of survivors/road warrior" persuasion and also the Destroyer series, which was a campy semi-satirical White Dude Masters Secret Asian Martial Art And Is an Assassin series.

What I Don't Read:  There are specific writers that I won't read, more than genres I don't read. (I will say I have very low interest in horror, thrillers and action/adventure/romance that doesn't have a supernatural/science fiction element.)

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I can possibly point out style/word choice/mood/worldbuilding/plot better than I could proof read/correct grammar/spelling.

I was sent a lovely package by Imzy just before the shutdown and it was stuffed full of goodies!

So now I have a few extra bits that I'd like to send to some people who loved Imzy but maybe never got any of the cute merch while it was around.

I have:

Two Imzysaurus plushies
One pair of socks
One pair of gloves
(and some stickers and badges!)



To enter the giveaway just comment below with something you loved about Imzy, and which item you'd prefer if you have a preference and then I'll pick 4 people to send something to!

There is no restriction on location, I am in the UK but I'm happy to send these items to anywhere in the world, you just have to be happy to give me your name and address if you win!

I'll PM the four randomly chosen people on 1st July and then announce the winners once they've all replied!

Other Info: I write about personal life issues and mental health issues on my blog. I also write about my various efforts to support myself which have not been entirely successful. I write original fiction though not very much due to the aforementioned mental health issues. (I am slowly overcoming the problem though, and am looking forward to eventually posting more original fiction to my fic journal.) I am working on getting more of my older fan fic up on my AO3 account.

Name: Peggy
Age: 30s
Country: U.S.

Fannish Interests: feminist sff, epic fantasy, queer representation, fat representation

I like to post about: All the things.

About Me/Other Info: So, I'm new to dreamwidth, but my wife has had an account forever and she thinks it's a cool place, plus I was just getting into Imzy and it went bust so I thought I'd try out dreamwidth. Truthfully, because of working-class life experiences and a misspent youth, I just discovered fandom and fanfic about 2 years ago even though I've been reading sff (and everything else I could get my hands on) since I was a kid. So, yeah. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm a pretty great cook. I just graduated with a master's in gender and sexuality and have a bachelor's in history (first-gen college graduate). I like collecting original art and prints from queer and fat and queer fat artists. I write poetry, but most of it is terrible. I come up with great ideas for stories and/or books, but never seem to follow through. I hope that changes now that I'm done with school. Tattoos are awesome and so are cats.

Hey all -

Can anyone tell me why my cut tags aren't working?

I've tried both HTML and the Rich Text Editor. It shows the "read more" but then also shows the rest of the post? When I go in to edit, the second </cut> is missing (even though it's there when I'm ready to post).

Ugh. Sorry.
