Welcome weary traveller,

You seem to have stumbled upon my journal and you are welcome to stay and have a look around. Here are some things that you may be wondering about:

What/how often do you post? A mixture of things. The journal consists of fandom and real life posts; fics, photos, ramblings, memes etc. I try to tag things so you can use them to find posts and get a general flavour. LJ remains my main presence on the web and I update on average once a week, sometimes more often, sometimes less, depending on RL.

Can/should I friend you? If you want. All fandom-related posts, including fics, are public so there is no need to friend me if you just want to check those out. However, all RL-related entries are flocked so if you want access to those then friend and please drop me a comment here to let me know if you'd like me to friend you back. If you don't, I assume you're not fussed and won't. Note that I won't friend anyone under 18-years-old although surely that's not an issue any more, aren't all the kids on Tumblr? :D

I just want to find your fics, where are those? All my posted fanfic can be found via the Writing Masterlists, which are updated regularly. Fics are grouped by fandom and crossover/fusion fics are listed under every fandom they include. You can also find most of my fanfics on AO3 where I go by MistressKat. Note, however, that [livejournal.com profile] anywhere_road and [livejournal.com profile] unmarked_place fics are not posted on AO3.

I've just done a larger than expected friends cut.

If I defriended you, it was because I haven't heard you from ages and thus assume you're no longer around/it hasn't felt like we ever really connected/we no longer have interests in common. Please don't take it personally as you are all awesome people and I wish you all the best.

If you think I've made a grievous mistake (entirely possible!) and would like to stay on my flist for whatever reason, then please let me know and I'll be happy to add you back.

Love,
Kat

Hello my lovelies,

I've been thinking about this for a while and it's time to do it. I post a fair amount of personal and real life stuff under friends-lock
and am getting a little uncomfortable with it being open to people who I don't feel I know that well or particularly care about my RL issues.

Thus, I'm planning on doing a smallish friends cut over the next few days. Mostly this will be
    a) people who have already defriended me,
    b) people who have announced they are leaving LJ more or less permanently,
    c) journals that appear dead as in I haven't seen posts or comments from them for eons, and
    d) people who I don't really connect with anymore (or never really did in the first place).

Please let me know if you think you might fall into the above categories but are still keen to stay. Similarly, if you would prefer to part ways but haven't gotten around to it, then do let me know or simply make the first move.

Remember that all my fandom related posts including fics, mixes or icons will always be public. If you want to keep me on your flist for just that then feel free.

If you friended me for and are only interested in my poetry, all of that has now moved onto [livejournal.com profile] boneverse so you are better of friending that journal.

Love to all,
Kat

I am currently transcribing interviews. Yes, I know it's a holiday, but I'll be having some time off next weekend so needs must blahblah.

However, random other things:

- Last night I had a dream that Gabe Saporta was installing new windows into my house. IDEK. I was trying to convince him to make his window installation business into a charity.

- The night before that, I had a dream with a shirtless Kris Allen. Unfortunately it was completely PG-rated.

- I have not eaten any Easter eggs/bunnies/other chocolatey goodness this weekend. Instead I have eaten Chinese, banana teabread, bacon sandwiches, honeydew melon, chirpy chick cupcakes (no actual chicks were used in the production of these cupcakes), and tangerines.

- New LJ layout/tagline. Change is good. icon overhaul later today.

- Speaking of. I need to find shiny icons in the following fandoms: SGA (Ronon's slinky hips!), Psych, Who (esp. the Christmas eps, needs me some scruffy!Master), FlashForward, House (season 5, which is what I'm going through at the moment), Glee, HIMYM. Any comms or icon makers you could recommend? Self-pimps are always welcome!

- Fic, fic, fic, want to write moar! Stupid RL and stupid thesis commitments. *shakes feeble fist and goes back to transcribing*

Friending

Want to Friend Me?

Awesome! I like meeting new people on LJ. Emphasis on meeting.

You're more than welcome to friend me, but please drop me a comment/e-mail (address in User Info) to let me know you've done so and to introduce yourself. This is because
A) I would like to know who you are and why you've friended me.
B) I would probably like to friend you back.
C) Please note that unless I know you quite well already through friends/communities, A is a prerequisite for B to happen.
You might also want to check out this post regarding filters, defriending and my unapologetically multifandom orientation.

One final thing: You must be 18 or over. This journal contains adult material including fanfic with sex and violence and for that purpose I am trying to keep my f-list adults-only.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you!
Kat

As seen around flist: Lurker amnesty

Today has been declared lurker amnesty day! Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Here for the fic? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just for that.



~~~

And, conversely: Defriending amnesty (is every day)

I know I’ve been very quiet lately because of marking-teaching-fieldwork-meetings-interviews-personal issues-etc. I just haven’t had the time for fandom squee or activities of any kind. And even when I’d had the time I’ve felt too drained to write episode reviews or fic. If you’re here for fandom, then it’ll be quiet for a while longer I’m afraid. So, with that in mind, feel free to exit quietly to the stage left.

After hours of tedious coding and copy-pasting, I'm happy to announce that my Fic Masterlist has been tidied, updated and is once more open for public. Enjoy.

Just a quick clean-up. Mainly I let go people who had defriended me or had never friended me back despite asking to be added in the first place.

Um, so I'm maybe considering doing another friends cut in a few days. I'm ambivalent about this because on one hand it seems like a slightly obnoxious thing to do, but on the other there are people on my flist that I don't seem to have that much in common with anymore and I doubt are particularly interested in my journal, and who still, by default, have access to my RL posts and other flocked entries. So, if you feel you fit this category this might be the time to make the first move and remove me from your flist, no explanation needed and no hard feelings.

omg LJ wtf?

So, for some inexplicable reason LJ has just decided the fuck up the coding for my Fic Masterlist post (only thing I did was edit one link and the whole thing just kind of exploded). As it is horribly messy, I have made the post private until such time that I have time to sort it (read: redo from the beginning). So, um, FYI, it's not gone for good and in the meanwhile in the unlikely case you are seized by a sudden urge to find any of my old fics, just hit the my fanfiction or my original fic tags.

So recently I seem to have gathered a lot of new friends from all over and from various fandoms. HI NEW FRIENDS, YOU ARE SHINY!

Anyway, I thought I'd post something here about a couple of things.


Filters - pffffft, don't use them. In general I simply use the public/f-locked division on my posts. Everything fandom related (fics, squee, recs, reviews) is public. Everything else (real life posts, music downloads, some random bits of original prose) are f-locked. I have like one filter and even that turned out to be a waste of time because most people wanted in on it and the time I spent organising it could have been used for something more productive like writing porn. Um. Anyway, the point is: I'm chronically multi-fandom and make no apologies for it. So if my current obsession is not the one you originally friended me for, you can
    a) skip over the entries that don't interest you. Really, this is why God created the scroll button.
    b) stick it out because I will inevitably return to old loves (yes, even SGA, there have been drabbles lately and I'm writing something for [info]sga_santa )
    c) de-friend me if you decide that me cluttering your f-list with things you don't care about is not worth the trouble anymore. No hard feelings, I promise.


Friending
- I have a whole separate post about friending here. Gratifyingly most people get the point and come and say hi when they friend me, in which case I'm more than happy to friend them back. If I haven't friended you back, it's simply because I haven't really "met" you, not because I hate your guts or anything. Please drop by and introduce yourself if you want me to friend you back. If not, then never mind... as you were, I guess.
