badass_tiger: Charles Dance as Lord Vetinari (Default)
From: [personal profile] badass_tiger
DW username: [personal profile] badass_tiger
Preferred pronouns: idrc
Other platforms (please specify): [ profile] rufusdrumknott [ profile] youtomyme [ profile] rufusdrumknott
Active/primary interests or fandoms: Discworld (especially Vetinari), Love Live, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Dan & Phil, occasionally Pokemon and Ace Attorney
If you've seen me around, it's probably because: I participate in fandom exchanges and other writing stuff (NaNo, [community profile] inkingitout, etc.)
I post about: Tumblr is reblogs of all the fandoms mentioned above; Twitter I just talk about my writing and stalk YTers; I don't blog much on DW but I've always wanted to get into it, so I'll start if I get friends! I have posted reviews of Love Live songs, about my writing, other people's writing, and my experiences on other websites (Reddit is a hilarious place, you guys).
I post/check my feed: I post everyday on Tumblr, sporadically everywhere else, but I check daily
I want to find people that post about: Shared fandoms, writing, book reviews are fun, I also study psychology and make a hobby of studying the English language, so that would be interesting too.
I am most interested in interacting with people on: Any of the places I'm on are good, I'm most active on Tumblr
My blog is: Pretty much friends-only
Anything else you need to know about me: I say my main fandom is Discworld, but I'm really just totally focused on Vetinari. As the first post on my blog will tell you, I am an avid Vetinari/Drumknott shipper. I primarily write original fiction though, which is probably what I rant whine talk about the most. I mostly write romance, sometimes with fantasy, adventure, etc. mixed in, but always focused on romance. I'd love to talk about writing with other people! I love analysing stuff, and learning about discourse analysis did not help. I'll analyse anything, songs, YT videos, random snippets from books, anything that catches my fancy. Oh, and my best girls are Hanayo, Honoka, and Rin <3

You seem cool, and I've been planning on getting into Discworld soon, so I'm going to add you, if that's alright. No need to reciprocate if you don't want to, esp. with regard to the access thing -- I only give it because my blog is circle-locked from the get-go.

(I still have yet to engage with Love Live, which a lot of my friends like but which I just have this weird instinct to keep at arm's length. Is there any entry point that you recommend?)

Sure thing! I mostly just talk about Vetinari anyway, and he's usually not a spoiler-heavy character, so hopefully I won't inadvertently spoil anything major.

Ooh, Love Live is a sprawling franchise consisting of quite a few different things, so it depends on what you're into. I got into it through the mobile game, School Idol Festival. It's a virtual card-collecting + rhythm game and I'm really into the competitive aspect of it. Of course, it's a very simplistic game if you're more into the depth that video games have.

The anime is fairly simplistic, but I absolutely adore it. It's just the right mix of adorable, funny, and heartwarming. The characters may seem a bit one-dimensional at times because the franchise does rely on magazines, the game, drama CDs, etc. to add depth to the characters, but the anime is definitely a great start. The manga is more plot-heavy and rather more sophisticated, though it does lose out on the lovely animated mini music videos the anime has. Although this only applies to the original Love Live anime/manga, School Idol Project. I have a lot of criticism for Love Live Sunshine, which focuses on the 'second gen' group, but it has its own fans.

And of course, if you love music, then there is a huge variety of songs of different genres, and each girl has a unique singing voice. They also mix the girls into smaller groups and subunits to release singles, and the diversity is a thrilling adventure into idol music.

tl;dr: I'd recommend watching the anime, Love Live School Idol Project first, which might get you more into the music and characters, and people usually find that the game continues to refresh their interest in the franchise after they've consumed everything else that has been released so far.

Ohhh!! Another Ace Attorney Fan!!

Would you like to add eachother?
Reading about your experiences on other websites sounds pretty interesting, and amusing haha. I am in a book club, so I do post about those when I can.

Yay, Ace Attorney :D My favourite AA ask blog has just started replying to SoJ letters and I am totally rehyped on AA. I needed some distance to think about it, but I definitely consider SoJ my favourite game now. Even though I find Klavier to be the more in-depth character, Nahyuta has taken over as my favourite prosecutor for his spirituality - I am always weak for characters who are openly religious, since they are so inspiring for my own faith.

Added you~

Hello! I've been meaning to get fully into Discworld fandom for an age now (I do fannish Discworld things in RL but not online, oddly. I feel this needs to be rectified).

Would you mind terribly if I added you?

Here is a picture of my Death costume (with a considerably taller friend in it) to sweeten the deal. =D

Ooh what kind of rl Discworld things? I'm afraid I myself am not that actively Discworld fannish apart from the fanfiction, despite it being my #1 interest. I mostly just quietly collect merchandise and mumble about it to myself. I'll definitely start blogging about it now that my rants have slightly more than a 0% chance of being read though :D

I help run a Discworld-based theatre company (was part of a comedy Theatre company - mostly specialising in TP's work - at undergraduate, and the company I help run now sort of emerged from that. We were drunk at a dinner party and Theatre company happened. Ha!). We adapt and perform Discworld books, some of which have never been done before. I make the costumes (and do other general backstage theatre stuff). It's good fun! =)

I'm looking to get more into online Discworld fandom stuff, though, as it just looks so fun!

Oh wow, that's amazing! I can't say if the online Discworld fandom is half as cool as that haha but I'll do my best to show its good side!
