New year, new President (in the US), new server sites for Livejournal. The future is little bit scary right now, and scary is better faced with friends. Meet new people, reconnect with old friends, and expand your reading circle.

To play, cut and paste this text into a comment, fill out the details and tell us about yourself. Then go find new people to add.

If you don't have a Dreamwidth account, you can sign up for one here.
If you're new to Dreamwidth and you've left OpenID comments on DW before, you can link your IDs here: How can I claim my OpenID account with my Dreamwidth account?

Play nice.

From: [personal profile] the_rck
DW username: [personal profile] the_rck
Preferred pronouns: she/her/hers, but I'm fine with any version of they, too
Other platforms (please specify): [ profile] therck, [ profile] the_rck. I still hang out on AIM. I've signed up for Tumblr and Imzy but never go there.
Active/primary interests or fandoms: Chronicles of Amber - Roger Zelazny, Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis, Weiss Kreuz, works of Diana Wynne Jones, The Pretender, The Librarians. I flit a lot in terms of what I write, and I read more widely than I write.
If you've seen me around, it's probably because: I worked on [community profile] metanews for a while, until my health got in the way. Or because you've read some of my fic.
I post about: Mostly my every day life. Details about my thirteen year old daughter go under a lock. I do occasional book and DVD logging posts. I announce new fics but don't post them here.
I post/check my feed: I post daily, sometimes more than once. I read several times a day, but I tend to be a lurker unless I feel like I have something to add.
I want to find people that post about: books/TV/movies/anime/manga, family life (including pets), writing, parenting while fannish, parenting while disabled, living with anxiety, living with chronic pain, history, tabletop games, LARPs
I am most interested in interacting with people on: DW or LJ
My blog is: Mostly public
Anything else you need to know about me: I am white, cis, het, female, and nearing 50. I am disabled due to anxiety. I am married and have one child. I live in the US. I had cancer in 2015 (surgery and radiation but not chemo) and may refer to that. I write darkfic sometimes and have mostly been writing that for the last year because I'm more likely to write it when I'm stressed. I do try to cut tag for discussions of things that might disturb people.

My experiences are likely to be different from yours because we're different people and because the kids (and partners!) in question are different, but I'm very willing to talk about my experiences.

I haven't imported my old LJ entries to DW yet. I'm planning to, but I thought I'd wait a week or so and let the current rush die down. My daughter was born in May of 2003, and the hardest parts were before she was about seven. Not that it's 100% easy now, but... It's a different set of challenges.

I write about daily life as well, and suffer anxiety as well. Also post our book club books when I get the emails for the meetings.
Would you like to add eachother?

Chronicles of Amber and Diana Wynne Jones's stuff are both on my grotesquely long reading list!

I post and plan on posting more about books/TV/movies/anime/manga, the animals I work with at my part-time ob, and the tabletop campaign I've been involved with for nearly two years. Would it be okay if I added you? (I don't expect access reciprocation; I just give it to everyone I'm meeting here, since I operate under a circle lock.)

Add away! I only lock posts about my daughter. I don't mind giving access, but I know some folks aren't interested.

I may try to persuade you to move the Jones'books and the Amber books up your list...
