This Journal

I have a lot of feelings, but I don't post regularly.

I post largely about fandom here, having been a fannish girl since long before I joined Dreamwidth. We've got your cheesy 80s time-travel movies, your classic fantasy epics, your wagon train to the stars (and your goth space stations and your space mushroom trips), your alternate universes and your temporospatial claudications.

Perennial favourites include Star Trek, Babylon 5, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, CJ Cherryh's Foreigner and Alliance/Union series, Rosemary Kirstein's Steerswoman books, Martha Wells's Murderbot and Raksura series, and science fiction and fantasy generally. I'm more of a spaceship girl than a magic girl, but the genre as a whole has my heart.

Fandom is largely interactive for me: I like to talk about my fannish loves, adore seeing other people's interpretations, and sometimes I'll even write fic or (much more rarely) draw art for them. I comment more than I post.

Once in a while important things like where I'm living1, what religion I hold2, and where my sexuality is at3 get into this blog, too. The webcomic xkcd once posted about how it sometimes seems life isn't real until it's been blogged about--sometimes I'm like that, and sometimes I don't post for months. But poke me and I'll say hi! I'm a chatterbox if you get me going. If you can't find me here, try my wife [personal profile] muccamukk, in whose blog I am frequently to be found commenting.

I'm also the artist formerly known as [ profile] nenya_kanadka. As of spring 2017 I'm exclusively on Dreamwidth. "Kanadka" means "female Canadian" in Russian. I was taking a class when I made my LJ back in the day, and I am indeed a Canadian among the many Nenyas out there. ;-)
