Update 01/24/2017 It appears that I will need take a longer break from swapping. My father passed away on Christmas day and I am finding myself at a loss for dealing with things considering how I've been affected. I currently am late on one swap which requires me to write a piece of fiction. I will complete it but must make sure I'm of the proper mindset to do it. If I've learned anything from this it is to not take on swap projects that can be easily derailed by depression. My apologies to my partner.
Update 10/07/2017 I'm slowly getting back into swapping and keeping it down to no more than three swaps at a time as I'm currently participating in a fandom challenge and creating art to accompany someone's fan fiction. I'm also working on boosting my ratings to repair the damage done by my little depressive episode back in June and July.
I'm a postal worker, wife, and mother. I consider myself a fangirl of the actor Misha Collins. I also like to collect pop culture tee shirts. I'm a supporter of RandomActs.org. I enjoy meeting new people and I'm an avid reader of fanfiction.
I absolutely love people who get excited about and are fans of things. Everyone should be a fan of something. Which is why I agreed to help transcribe interviews for my friend when she told me she was working on: Squee the Fangirl Documentary
It's just now starting to hit the festival circuit!
Oh so much to tell, but I'm not sure what lol. Talking about myself is not my strong suit.
I love letter writing and think it is a lost art. I actually am actively working to encourage children to embrace letter writing. My son's elementary school has a 4th grade post office. During that segment of learning the children are taught about how to properly address and write letters as well as how the postal system works. Last year as part of my Endure 4 Kindness event with Random Acts I created stationary kits for the 259 students in the fourth and fifth grade classes to encourage them to write. I'm hoping to do the same again this year. Hopefully I will be able to get some grants to help with the endeavor!
I have a BA in history, although I have long forgotten more than I have ever learned. Despite having no use for my degree, I still use my academic writing skills in helping fanfiction writers with ideas and editing help.
I enjoy doing things just for the sake of making other people happy. One summer I mailed magazines to people internationally who were unable to find them in their own countries. Apparently the magazine was only published and available in the US. I had to share the love since the cover article was about Misha Collins who epitomizes acts of kindness. It seemed like the right thing to do.
I promise to rate.
I am a Supernatural fangirl. So much so that I have attended fan conventions for the show. I am a Destiel shipper. It's my weakness. I have a soft spot for the pairing and didn't ship anything else in any other fandom, although I'll read just about anything or pairing if it's well done. I'm always on the lookout for fan art for Supernatural in general and my favorite ship! I have a love for a great many characters on the show. Dean, Castiel, Sam, Crowley, Bobby, Chuck, Gabriel, and Benny are all loved. I like the strong female characters the show has had Ellen, Jo, Charlie (god I miss her), Jody Mills, Donna Hanscom, and even Meg version two and Rowena. Fan art of thsee folks will be cherished and greatly appreciated.
I am also fond of Doctor Who, although I have not kept up with the newer seasons. Christopher Eccleston as far as I'm concerned was an underappreciated actor. He's by far my favorite doctor of the new series.
Constantine was an excellent if short lived show. It was one of my absolute favorites and I was devastated when it was not renewed for more episodes.
Mr. Robot has me pining away for the following season. Why oh why must I be forced to wait.
It takes a lot for a television show to make me want to tune in every week. These are the only ones in years that made me want to devote the time.
I'm definitely a fan of the original Star Trek and Star Trek the Next Generation franchises but not fond of the others except the new movies. I liked all of the characters on the old trek and my favorites on Next Gen are Riker and Picard. I also love red shirt gallows humor. The enterprise and federation insignia are iconic and always enjoyed.
Loom knitting is my current hobby, though admittedly I am fickle when it comes to craft work. I like to dabble and try my hand at different things. I have cross stitched, scrapbooked ,sewn quilt tops, but nothing holds my interest for long. I swear I have the attention span of a humming bird. Lol
Currently I am trying my hand at ATCs. I really enjoy seeing other people's artwork so ATCs and sketches are always appreciated.
I have recently acquired a set of pigment pens and alcohol markers and am making sure to practice my art everyday. I mostly sign up for ATC swaps now so I can force myself to practice. The only problem is sometimes I fall in love with a piece and then it's like giving away one of my children.
Other recent activities include making and canning apple butter! yum
I have received my first 3 rating. It was justified as I was late and unable to read the required 10 books over the summer. I did however notify my partner of the situation over the summer with my husband's emergency surgery and subsequent hospitalization. It's regrettable, but reading was the last thing on my mind during such a stressful time.
If you have sent something and I have not rated please let me know. I do my best to rate immediately. Occasionally life gets in the way and I may slip up and forget
I'm fond of young adult fiction because I like the story. Sometimes I find in adult lit that the subject matter is too serious and lacks the wonder of a good story often found in young adult fare.
Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials is a classic in my eyes, as are C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy. I like stories that make you question and think, but also appreciate ones that address important issues with wit and dry humor, the works of Douglas Adams comes to mind. Hitchhiker's Guide is an unparalleled classic!
Nowadays I read so much fanfiction. There are so many creative people in the world. Let me read what you've written!
For swaps or other exchanges I enjoy the following things and other miscellaneous info:
Favorite candy is gummy cola bottles (only cola flavor)
Favorite holiday, valentine's day (I just love the hearts)
Macha (green tea) Pocky or Kit Kars are the best thing ever created!
I love coffee and have developed a Starbucks addiction.
Hot teas- I prefer mint, oolong, or green
I enjoy custom art and have taken to commissioning art to go with my fanfics,
Journals are appreciated as I'm hoping to take it up again
I like washi tape
bath and body works car air freshener refills
adult coloring pages
I am not Christian, but I do enjoy secular Christmas and gift giving.
Hanukkah items okay
Please don't send anything of a religious nature
Inspirational, spiritual, uplifting things without ties to organized religion are acceptable
