About Me

((Currently out of town due to a family emergency. I'll rate any swaps I receive as soon as I get back, sorry for the delay.))

Hi, my name is Lizzy. I live in the Netherlands, in Maastricht.

I work as a translator and subtitler, so my day job is a mix of terrible murder shows, paranormal investigations, and reality tv mixed with commercial and marketing texts, and very complicated academic texts about art and art history.

I have an adorable scruffy rescue dog named Deeks. His hobbies include getting people to pet him by looking cute, walking along the very edge of the sidewalk, stopping to stare whenever a city bus passes, and barking at foxes.

I'm a very big fangirl. I like to geek out over stuff, whether that be books, movies, or TV shows. My biggest fandoms right now are Marvel, Harry Potter, Leverage, The Raven Cycle, and Person of Interest.

I joke about how I'd be hipster, but I'm not cool enough. If there is a cute cafe with industrial vibes, vegan cupcakes, lemonade from mason jars, a lot of people wearing plaid, and too many plants, I am Here For It.

I like to draw and keep a scrapbook. I'm working on getting better at photography. My 2018 goal is to take more pictures of myself, because I recently helped my grandmother move to a nursing home and sorted through all her photographs and one day I too want to laugh at 'look at how old fashioned that haircut was' and 'did you know back then we didn't even have the internet planted directly into our brains'?

Favorite Movies

I'm a big Marvel geek. My favourite Marvel movie is Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

The one movie I can watch over and over is Coraline. I love the story, the music, and the gorgeous style and aesthetic of the movie. I may own a star sweater and bright yellow rain coat because of this movie.

The childhood movie I watched over and over was Ferngully. I bought the multi-lingual dvd a few years ago and now know the songs in both Dutch AND English. (Dutch always wins for the nostalgia factor, though.)

Favorite Television

I watch a lot of shows, most of them casually while doing other things.

I just finished binge watching Leverage, which I absolutely loved.

Other favourites include Brooklyn Nine Nine, Person of Interest, Gilmore Girls, Anne with an E, One Day At A Time, Z-Nation (on Dutch Netflix, so I'm only up to season 3), and various 'let's fix up this house' and DIY shows.

I also lot watching Youtube Videos while I draw or scrapbook. My favourites are Worth It, Buzzfeed Unsolved, and 'draw with me' or 'journal with me' type videos. I love Minnie Small and Mango Street's channels.

Favorite Books

I have to admit that these days, I read a ton of fanfiction, so there's less time for new books.

My favourite genres are science fiction and dystopian stories (give me a good zombie apocalypse any day), along with modern fantasy. I love YA lit.

Of course I'm a Harry Potter fan, though I'm staying away from The Cursed Child. My favourite character is Remus Lupin.

I just finished Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Cycle and I absolutely loved it!

Other favourites are: Catherine Jinks' Pagan Chronicles and Charlie Higson's The Enemy series

Favourite comic books are Matt Fraction's Hawkeye series, and Ms Marvel.

Favorite Crafts

I love to draw and paint. I like to use watercolours, coloured pencils, and sometimes brush markers.

I keep a scrapbook that I fill with photographs, bits of ephemera from my life, and a whole lot of decoration, doodles, writing, and other fun bits and pieces. I make a spread for every week.

I send my grandma a card every week. She lives in a nursing home too far away for me to visit much, and the cards make her happy. I spend ages decorating the envelope because she said once that it made her smile. The nursing staff has actually started telling her 'ma'am, you should check your mailbox, there was another pretty envelope!'. She keeps all of them in a special folder.


Favourite colours: dark red, grey, yellow, dark green, bronze, and turquoise

Favourite animals: dogs, foxes, sloths, squirrels, dinosaurs, yetis...

Favourite season: Autumn

Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff

Dislikes: I'm terrified of frogs and toads, I don't like pink and sparkles, and I have a bunch of allergies that make sending food difficult.

Send me this and make me happy: fandom things, stickers, journaling cards, washi, ephemera, art, handlettering, puns, pictures of your pets, tiny envelopes, feminist stuff, nerdy things, your zombie apocalypse plan, pins, patches...

Favourite types of prints/themes: Galaxy and stars, dogs, dinosaurs, polkadots, cryptids, zombies and apocalypse, autumn, black and white graphic prints, cacti and succulents and plants

Got stuff with swearing on it you don't want to send to your relatives? Send it to me, instead. ;D

Please do not send me: scented things, food, religious things, glitter and glittery items, anything weight loss or diet-related

Lemme show you my dog

Deeks the dog

Comment: Lizzy, Thank you for your fun letter. Wish I could ask Sirius about the 1st flight and pigeons. Thanks so much, darla
Response: I like to think some flew into his face and he crashed rather spectacularly (and then got pooped on in revenge by angry pigeons). I'm glad you liked it, I had fun writing it!
