Name: saintbounty

Age: 25

Location: Pennsylvania, USA

About Me: What about me? 25 year old queer cyber-witch, re-immersing herself in journaling as a practice and still piecing together my online writing community. I was on LJ as a young adult and I miss the vibe. I have deceptively little chill.

About My Journal: Mostly personal, but also some writing, and some talking about writing and books and TV. My day job in tech support and small electronics repair takes up a lot of my energy, and I got a few irons in the fire.

What I Write: Personal essays, poetry, genre fiction (read: fantasy, I guess!).

What I Want to Write: Romance, creative non-fiction, comics.

What I Read: Essays, poetry (I get like 10 poem-of-the-day emails), literally any fiction story with lesbians, a gaggle of web and print comics, newsletters about the future.

What I Want To Read: Better fiction stories with lesbians, and more nonfiction. I'm always down for good sci-fi and fantasy, and I have a soft spot for YA, as I suspect many folks do.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I'd love to.

Location: Tokyo, Japan

About Me: I'm a twentysomething queerish girlwoman expatriate librarian-at-arms. I eat books and bleed poetry.
… er, that's what it says on the Twitter account that I admit to at work, but I'm writing this from a mattress on the floor and eating an ice cream in my pajamas on a Friday evening, in between shuffling my new tarot cards and watching trashy movies. (The Twitter account I don't admit to at work is [twitter.com profile] transpacifique.)

About My Journal: This is where I post any writing worth sharing. (If you're on LJ, my "journal"/diary is [livejournal.com profile] meepalicious.)

What I Write: I write stories for my friends. I love to co-write or share a 'verse and characters, so most of my recent work is collaborative stuff or my half of a story, or my characters' side of something. I like writing about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary circumstances, or extraordinary people trying to live ordinary lives. I like fantasy (high and, especially, urban), historical, contemporary and, yes, romance. I like to write underrepresented queer romances; expect to see a lot of queer women, ménages à trois, gender nonconforming and/or asexual characters. 
I'm an active participant in [livejournal.com profile] writerverse, so many of my stories are challenge responses. Sometimes I dabble in [community profile] rainbowfic.
I'm starting to dabble in poetry and creative nonfiction.

What I Don't Write: I don't write horror, smut, or hard sci-fi.

What I Read: I'm a children's librarian, so I read a lot of kidlit. Online, I'll read most anything, except for what I don't. (See below.) I like to read (and write) about happy, stable queer relationships, the kind of people  I might like to be friends with if I met them, and fuzzy warm feelings. 

What I Don't Read: I don't read what I don't write, but I might make an exception for hard sci-fi.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Sure! I'm a bit rusty, but I used to spend hours a day copy and content editing for friends online. I would be happy to be a beta reader and critique partner; that's actually what I'm here for. I mean, I hope we will be friends, but I'd love to meet some creative collaborators!

about me: I am not an aspiring writer, just a hobbyist. I am a feminist (who isn't, these days?), a queer, an assistant teacher, and an expat. I live in Tokyo and research Shinto in my spare time.

about my journal: This is my writing journal. My personal journal is [livejournal.com profile] meepalicious, and if you still use that sinking ship of a site, you are welcome to add me there if you're looking for a friend.

what I write: (in no particular order): original (urban fantasy, magical realism, shoddily researched historical fiction, worldhopping/multiverses), fanfic (including, but not limited to, Harry Potter and TSUBASA: RESERvoir CHRoNiCLE) & you can expect to find f/f, some m/m, kidfic, and schmoopy romance mixed into all of the above, most of it quite short (but I'm working on that)

what I don't write: generally (scary things (e.g., horror or apocalyptic), sexy things)

what I read: fanfic for my fandoms/pairings (see profile(s)), urban fantasy & magical realism, short fic (books)

what I don't read: see, what I don't write

could I edit someone else's work: absolutely, I would love to give (& receive) feedback and critique

[personal profile] fireez
Name: Fireez

Age: 34

Location: Germany

About Me: I'm a biologist who, due to the lack of jobs for people with my specializations in the area, is now a bookseller-in-training. I'm a geek, a fangirl and a feminist. I have a wide range of interests, from science to humanities and back again. I'm bipolar and an abuse survivor. I have opinions and am not afraid to use them. The same goes for macros and gifs.

About My Journal: My journal is my personal playground where I rant, whine, squee, write more or less coherent reviews of books/movies/comics I've read and talk about my life, which includes writing. I swear. A lot. I use gifs and pictures to express my emotions. I talk about my issues and mental health, sometimes on a filter, sometimes not.

What I Write: Fanfiction and original fiction, though the scales are tipped more in the fanfic direction. I have a writing journal ([personal profile] sermocinare ) and can also be found on AO3. I'm a huge fan of alternate history, crossovers and horror, but for some reason, my original fic always ends up having crime elements, though I haven't read any crime fiction in years. I blame it on being a huge fan of crime TV.

What I Don't Write: I would have said "romance", only that I'm writing a romance (ok, a romantic thriller, since yeah, crime elements) right now for NaNo, so I guess I can't really say that any more.

What I Read: Tons of fantasy, the less Tolkienesque the better. Horror. YA dystopias. Anything with zombies.YA in general. Non-fiction, mostly of the science/psychology/history kind.

What I Don't Read: Romance novels and literary fiction.

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: I hardly find enough time to write and edit my own work, so no.

About Me: The basics about me are that I'm 21, African American, Female, and the youngest child in both my families. I love a lot of things. I love animals, specially cats. I love music with all my heart and I would love to create it. I love reading and writing. I've been reading since I can remember and I've liked writing. I remember the first story I typed. I was twelve and it badly written smut haha. I've gotten better since then I think though I did have a long hiatus from writing around 2009-2010.


About My Journal: I write about my day to day life and that include writing. I make loot posts which shows various purchases I've made and I just feel the need to squee about. I also like to make graphics and I have other hobbies besides writing



What I Write:

It's hard to put a label on. But I would say historical fiction and young adult right now. I have three stories that I'm working on.
What I Don't Write:

There's nothing that I won't attempt at least once.
What I Read:

Historical fiction/romance, young adult fiction, urban fantasy and I'm venturing into sci-fi
What I Don't Read:

Horror at the moment
Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: It's possible. I'm not as good at spelling and grammar as I used to be when I was in a formal school, but I could give it a go.
