i, for one, am VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD to embarking on this dreamwidth journey with y'all. while tumblr is still very useful for disseminating information quickly, admiring beautiful graphics and fanart, and communicating via askbox/fanmail---not to mention the huge population that works/plays/shares there---there are just some things that cannot be accomplished easily through tumblr. i think creating and maintaining a tight-knit community happens to be one of those things.

our hope for picking dreamwidth back up out of the gutter is to create a semi-private space for sorta-like-minded individuals with similar interests, where we can participate in discussion, analysis, fanart, fanfiction, and other bits of fandom-sharing without worrying about spamming dashes or losing track of threads.

many of you have created a brand new dreamwidth account or revived an old one, and some of us (myself included) are still reacquainting ourselves with how this set-up works! to get started, why don't we...

name/what you would like us to call you
age, if you feel like sharing
current fandoms
preferred ships
what are you hoping to get out of this dreamwidth adventure?
post at least one recommendation for any of the following:
(1) fanfiction story/author
(2) fanart/fanartist
(3) music/song/playlists/fanmix
(4) another tumblr/DW user you love to follow!
anything else you would like to share ~

i'll post below to get started.

name: ah yes, the dreaded name thing. my actual name is somewhat (very on this side of the world) uncommon and therefore easy to find, and as i like online anonymity unless we're like friends on facebook, which can happen, YOU CAN CALL ME SOCKS

age: i just turned 20 a few months ago

current fandoms: literally everything. uh, atla, lok, harry potter, the 100, sense8, oitnb, teen wolf, anything disney/pixar, dreamworks stuffff, amongst other things

preferred ships: i am literally a shipping mess pls ask me about it

what i want out of this dreamwidth adventure: i on tumblr pretty inconsistently, since many of the people who i used to commonly bounce ideas with are doing different things and what not. also, i follow kris on like everything and this is no different

recommendations: my fav 100 fanfic writer is definitely monroeslittle. the fics are always crazy long AND SO WELL WRITTEN i just cannot

yes im all about this :D

Hello, all!

I am Heather, and I am 36 years old (though my daughter claims I'm eternally 12).

Fandoms... crap, I have waaay too many. The 100, TWD, OUAT, Grimm, Elementary, Humans, iZombie, Falling Skies, and The Strain are the shows I currently have some degree of obsession for. And I'm still clinging to Naruto, ATLA, LoK, Heroes (OMG, Reborn! I'm so excited) and Harry Potter more than I probably should.

I have a lot of ships I adore - KakaSaku, InoCho (Naruto); Zutara (ATLA); Tahnorra (LoK); Bethyl (TWD); Bellarke, Wicken, Linctavia, Kabby (The 100); Jelsa (Frozen/RotG); Dramione (HP); Captain Swan, Outlaw Queen (OUAT); Nick/Adalind (Grimm); Leo/Mattie (Humans); Clair/Sylar (Heroes) - but honestly, I'm a multi-shipper at heart. I like playing with/seeing others play with character interactions and relationships more than I can say.

I'm looking to get a more personal, interactive fandom experience than what I'm currently getting on tumblr.

As for my rec, I think I'll go with monroeslittle's fabulous bellarke fics {my personal favorite is 'in my house on the hill (there is room for you still)'} - you can find them on AO3.

- Star Wars | Ships: Anakin/Padme, Jacen/Tenel Ka (the formerly canon expanded universe) But actually, I like a lot of SW gen. Luke & Vader. Skywalker family in general. etc.

what are you hoping to get out of this dreamwidth adventure?
1) To be in on cool Therentyoupay discussions
2) To maybe *fingers crossed* revitalize this platform again, because I miss it.

post at least one recommendation for fanfiction story/author:
ashes and honey (TID), DAsObiQuiet (Star Wars) , Commander (Disney) , & Cr1mson (DC comics)

Name: Rose

Age: I just turned 21! February...oh god I'm closer to 22 than 21 now hoooooow

Fandoms: sssososo many


Lilo & Stitch (I watch it every summer, I cry every summer)

pm all of Disney

Mulan (it was my formative princess movie, it deserves a place of its own)

Lion King (it instilled in me an...appreciation...for the father-son dynamic why yes I DO like Star Wars how did you know?)

Star Wars (yeeeeeeeeeeeeeesss)


Steven flippin' Universe

the Incredibles (ultra-yeeeeeeeeess)

Big Hero 6

pm all the super hero movies (except Ant-Man, X-Men: First Class, and tbh I am not likin the direction of the DC cinematic universe but I will watch them anyway because I am not paying for my tickets my nerdy big bro is bc he needs someone to talk nerdy with--oh, I also didn't watch Ghost Rider 2, but outside of that I have pretty much seen all of the post-Blade 1 super hero movies because even I can't be assed to watch Superman IV or Batman III-IV and yes that means I HAVE seen Superman III and no I didn't like it)

uh, Naruto (??? I stopped watching after...Hanzo died and stopped reading was in the war...Kabuto was a snake???? I think he was with Sasuke???? OR was it Orochimaru or...)

Over the Garden Wall (I cried, I cried sso much you guys)

Dragon Age (Inquisition was so good, it was so freaking good. I didn't know how much I needed openworld until I got it omg how will I play Origins nowwwwww)

Mass Effect (I am NOT ready for Andromeda, idk how to fEEL guyss)

Teen freaking Titans ( I just have sO MANY EMOTIONS BOUT THIS STUPID DokRY CHILDREN's TV SHOW)

Game of Thrones (I'm hesitant to put ASOIAF because I haven't even finished reading the first book but I've prolly read more meta on the series than there are WORDS in the series, so...I mean, I can TALK asoiaf, at least)

Is mythology a fandom or is that just called religion? bc I have maybe kinda sorta written Norse fanfic if that's even possible??? it was once, I was...fourteen?? I won't ever share it again, but I had such a mighty NEED because I just freaking love mythology, yo.
I'm more versed in Greek and Norse mythology than anything else, more than likely because the mythology/world religions section at my local bookstores are SORELY lacking, but I make do.

omg wait, wait, Rick and fuckin' Morty, I love it, I love everything about it, it's wonderful

A sci-fi bildungsroman featuring Joe Gordon Levitt as shitty little kidna hot animated teenager with father/abandoment issues (THAT LION KING TOTALLY SET ME UP FOR AS A CHILD I S2G) but who's still totally a freakin' adorbz mama's boy (yassss) and gains a totes wonderful PIRATE CAPTAIN WITH A HEaRT OF GOLD AS A SSURROGATE FATHER FIGURE SIGN ME THE FUCK UP


I'm sure there are others, but I've kind of exhausted myself emotionally writing that last bit.

I'm going to diiiiiiiie
I can't list them because then I'll want to talk and I've done so much of that alreadyyyyyy
Um, ok, top 5:

1) Jelsa, fo sho

2 Narusaku (otp, Sasasaku is my notp, sorry)

3) Kakasaku (crackship, I love iiiiit)

4) Steven/Connie (those adorbz lil bbys i love them!)

5) uhhhhhhh
I know I have more ships than this WHERE DID MY FLEET GO CrAP
I have more than four ships

Oh yeah, and Bob and Linda from Bob's Burgers are my mega otp of marital wonderfulness. I mean, I don't rly...discuss Bob's Burges bc I kinda just enjoy the show as-is, but yeah, they're perf.
Hugo the health inspector can go sit in syrup.

What am I hoping to get out of this hopefully wonderful adventure?
Tbh I kinda just don't wanna be the only fangirl screaming about my otps XP

But that's just, you know,, base expectations. If all goes well, I essentially would just like to be able to have deep discussions regarding fictional characters with like-minded, accepting people (at the very least, just Jelsa), something that Tumblr really does not help facilitate.
I mean, the mere fact that we're all here means that we all follow Kris, at least, we all likely read the same fanfic, but I don't even know any of you.
Hopefully this will change all of that.

I normally don't watch fanvids or listen to playlists (I mostly don't want to go hunting for even mORE music I have so much already), and the only other fanfic (Jelsa) that I can think of recommending has been on hold for like a year now and I still feel gypped about Firefly being cancelled even though I didn't even watch it until I was sixteen, so I don't like spreading the feeling of...disappointment?
Lack of closure?
BUT what I lack in fanfic and fanvids and...pretty every other form of fandom (oh god) I make up for in fanartists which is way more up-my-alley as art is, like, my LEIF.

(hope you guys don't mind if I link to all their jelsa stuff, but that's kinda why I follow 'em. XP)


She has/had(?) a modern Jelsa au that follows Frozen, but like I said, is modern so idk what it would've ended up as, eventually. She's currently too busy to continue it, and sadly, she only ever finished the first chapter and the prologue.
However, she has tons of regular ol' fanart and is just plain awesome.

Aelfeth Art:

SO MUCH STUFF u guysss, she has so much stuff and she's so flippin' talented. Her guide for Elsa's hair--SHE TAUGHT ME (indirectly) HOW TO DRAW ELSA's HAaaaaiiir she's just awesome and she's currently doing a Princess Bride au which--Oh! That's a fanfic.
Crap wait...lemme get a link!



Nobara Art:

OMG HER FUCKING....her Jelsa fancomic
She doesn't update that often and she doesn't speak English very well and part 4 kinda confused the heck out of me but MAAAAAAAAN THAT ART
Seriously, check it out. I mean, as I said, it's a little confusing at part 4 bUT It'S AMAZING


Speaking of a language barrier.
This fanartist also doesn't speak English very well, but her Hogwarts Jelsa au is so freaking cute
so stupid
so cute

Starmage Asuka:

Pretty much her whole blog is Frozen/Jelsa stuff, it's like a freaking goldmine of wonder.
She has like a bajillion aus, but since she's starting school again, her update rate...may drop, unfortunately.
Still, it's wonderous, she's wonderful, and she's soooooooo talented.
Even her icon stirs up emotions of artistic envy and respect in me, it's ridiculous.


She used to have a nsfw Jelsa blog too (TO STUDY ANATOMY POSES, DUH, MMMHMM), but she deleted it for personal reasons. :(
*whispers* and she was getting so good at anatomy...

Regardless, her sfw Jelsa stuff is gr9 too and adorable and won't run the risk of showing up on your dash when you're in the living room with family and you have to scroll past really fast but then you found out she also uploaded the uncolored version, the linart, the sketch, ZOOMED IN PICS OR SOEMTHING IT wAS RIDICULOUS AND THE HOME BUTTON WOULDn't WORK AND I HAD PORN STUCK ON MY PHONE SCREEN I HAD TO SHOVE INTO THE COUCH CUSHIONS BEFORE ANyONE SAW AND AN HOUR LATER IT WAS STILL THERE OGDDAMNIT YOU CHEAP PHONE It's A MIRACLE NOBODY SAW YOU!

I believe...I have shared too much. >>

From: [personal profile] teacapes
Name: I tend to stick with usernames online so Teacapes or Capes is fine.

Age: 21

Current fandoms: I always have too many. Some constants that I'll love forever are Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, Howl's Moving Castle(books and movie) All Ghibli films-especially HMC and Kiki's Delivery Service, Gilmore Girls, Avatar:The Last Airbender, Sailor Moon, Disney-favs being Aladdin, Tangled, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Teen Titans, labyrinth, DC Animated Universe...

Some more recent fandoms of the last few years are: Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Parks and Rec, Hawkeye(comic version), The Wicked and the Divine, Arrow, Legend of Korra, Firefly, Teen Wolf, OUAT(I keep getting pulled back in!), the Marvel Cinematic Universe and various anime-Princess Tutu, Ouran High School Host Club, Inuyasha, etc.

Ships: Emma/Captain Hook, Beast Boy/Raven, Oliver/Felicity, Lydia/Stiles, Lidia/Parrish Loki/Darcy, Kagome/Sesshomaru, Tahno/Korra...And then the other various ships like Stiles/Derek or Natasha/Anyone that I read because I'm pretty fluid with ships and a well written story can win me over almost any day with few exceptions.

What are you hoping to get out of this dreamwidth adventure?: Well I've come here because A.) I enjoy TheRentYouPay's Tahnorra stories a lot B.)I'm beginning to like tumblr less and less, and C.) I was never super involved in online communities during the time of livejournal/deviantart/Harry Potter theory boards as I was waaay too warned against internet strangers and the like. So I've always thought I missed out.

So first of all, if you like Inuyasha, please check out Forthright on She has written for mulitple pairing, but has a lot of Kagome/Sesshomaru stories.

Some favorites are:
Froth, which is actually Sango/Miroku, and a coffee shop AU to which I compare all other coffee shop Aus in all fandoms. It's so fluffy but successfully modernized the characters.

Impeccable Kagome finds out she inherited an estate with an indentured butler named Sesshomaru, hijinks ensue.

Lord Charming Kagome becomes an attendant to Sesshomaru and they strike up a friendship that is slowly becoming more. Unfortunately, this hasn't been updated since October and I fear that Forthright might not be coming back. But it has some lovely snuggling moments that I like to re-read every now and again. Also it's remarkable as she was trying to keep each chapter to 100 words.


Now this isn't technically a fanfic but hear me out. Imagine a scenario where Sarah from Labyrinth is college aged and moves into an apartment with Christine from Phantom of the Opera. They then find out that Jareth and The Phantom live in an apartment above them and all hell breaks loose. This takes place in a big crossover universe where characters of movies/tv shows/books/etc. are aware of what happens to them in their various medias but they're just trying to live their lives without being traumatized by their backstories. This all takes place in a webcomic called Girls Next Door by Pika-La-Cynique

It's at 255 pages at the moment, and is updated when Pika has a spare moment. I've been reading that probably since I was 13 and I just love it. (I should mention that it was originally inspired by another webcomic, Roommates by Asherhyder, that is very interesting but I have been bad about keeping up with! )

Anything else you would like to share ~
I claim to be a writer by trade(or will be after I graduate college next May, AH!) but I need to write more beyond my school assignments. So I'm kinda hoping an active online community might at least get some fanfic out of me. XP (I'm on and Ao3 as Litbytes but all the stories are poorly edited and at least 2 years old.)

And so um, Nice to meet you all!!!!!

From: [personal profile] teacapes

For OUAT, I made it to the beginning of S3 but began to lose interest so I stopped watching regularly. And yeah, I briefly returned for Frozen for an episode or 2, then again at the end of last season for the evil Charmings. (Otherwise, I've been doing the same with tumblr for Captain Swan updates!) But it's the "good person turned evil leading to much angst" plot line that's pulling me back, especially with the preview of Hook being determined but devastated. I blame Sailor Moon for my love of this trope, darn evil brainwashed Darien and Dark Lady...

I am not currently a Jelsa shipper, though I've got nothing against the ship! (And I can see the obvious basis for their relationship.) I feel like I read the first few chapters of ATC when you first started writing it but I haven't checked it out since then. (Something I'll have to rectify!)
