This journal is friends only.

Fic and Graphics will be posted publicly, so please feel free to friend me if you want to see what I'm up to.  My personal life is very turbulant and will be posted as friends only, so you don't need to friend me for fandom stuff, just the personal stuff.

If you have friended me or followed me on twitter and I haven’t friended/followed you back it isn’t because I don’t like you or don’t want to be friends.  To use an old cliché, it’s not you, its me.  It’s just I was burned pretty badly by fandom, I walked away from communities and friends that meant a lot to me and although I’m happier for the decisions I made and I would do pretty much everything again, it does mean that I’ve kinda crawled into my shell and am doing everything I can to protect myself.  Unfortunately, that includes keeping my LJ and Twitter friends to only those I know really well and I trust completely.  I know its stupid, but I’m not really completely rational about this stuff.  If you want to be friends just stick around.  The more we interact, the more I’ll feel comfortable with you, get over my insecurities and friend/follow you back.  It’ll just take some time.

Jeremy - Prozac!

Anyone on a plus account?? I used to have an ad at the top and bottom of my screen. I now have one between EVERY entry! It's very annoying and I'm back to just using the iPhone app, which isn't great but at least no ads!

Is this another shitty Lj change to force people to get paid accounts?

Gymnastics - Aly Raisman - Fly
In an attempt to cheer myself up I’m going to write about my weekend in Manchester with whiskyinmind and all my amazing friends. This post won't have pics in it, but they will probably be up at the weekend.

I have a habit of rambling a lot in these things so please bear with me, I have a LOT to say, mostly not about the singers we were seeing.

Lots of fun here but very wordy as alwaysCollapse )

Anyone else love Jewellery?  Well whiskyinmind and I decided we love it so much we want to make it, some 'normal' stuff and some awesome fandom stuff.

Avengers - CN - Not Superheroes
Can someone teach me how to write a het sex scene that is sweet and loving? Slow and ssensual without being boring?

I can do frantic and hot but not sweet and loving :-(
29th-Aug-2012 12:11 pm - CAKE!!!!!
Cake!
I really want to make this my default icon! 

A friend came to visit last week and we had so much fun watching movies, working on a website and just generally hanging out. I'm always so calm when we are together, I don't know why she has such an awesome effect on me but it's like a drug, it's so hard to leave and I'm counting the days till we meet up again!

Anyway, this icon that she made makes us both giggle like kids even though I know it means nothing to anyone else, say it to us and we won't be able to stop from cracking up :-)

Gymnastics - Aly Raisman - Fly
Every once in a while a show comes along that makes me jump up and down.
Every once in a while a show comes along that makes me glad I'm a geek.
Every once in a while a show comes along that makes me care.

Right now, that show is The Newsroom.

Aaron Sorkin is a genius!

The season finale is AMAZING!

It has one of those moments in it that just makes you smile.  Everything comes together and you the payoff you've been waiting for the whole season.

Thank you Aaron for yet another amazing show!

Fandom: Avengers Movie Verse
Prompt: Self Harm from my hc_bingo card
