Favorite Pairings: N/A

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: Life. Usually how corrupt my school is, it's like a freaking soap opera... That's a huge majority of my entries because I'm a teacher and it's what I do. So if corrupt school entries bore you.... I'm probably not your cup of tea. I write about adventures I have with my husband/friends, on the rare occasion that we have them, and I write about my cats. I also post concert pictures and videos, I love concerts. And I write about people and relationships, past/present/future because as an INTP, I live inside my own mind, and I'm constantly thinking about and analyzing situations and relationships and feelings. I'm also a cancer survivor and have a frozen embryo that's waiting to be hatched in a few years, and sometimes write about that.
How often do you update?: I update at least once a week, usually on Sundays, but if something life-changing or exciting happened, I would update more, and I also tend to update more during the summer/on school vacation than during the school year.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: I like to get to know people and be involved in their life. So I prefer people, who write entries about their life as opposed to just posting their twitter feeds or writing about fandom. I want them to get to know me and I want to get to know them.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I try to comment as often as I can. I try to check lj, at least once a day, and if I can't do that, at least once every two days, and I try to always think of something interesting to say. I'm not a comment hoarder, so I don't expect people to comment on my journal all the time, but if people do comment, I hope it's thought out comments and not just responding to the last line of my post or something. I also don't want people, who just collect lj friends to have a lot of friends, I want to form relationships with people, not just be a statistic.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend:
1. People, who only post their twitter feeds on their lj.
2. Fandom journals. I want friends, who write about their lives not just fandoms. I don't mind a little fandom talk, but I don't just want a journal all about fandom.
3. I don't want to be a friend, so somebody can have a lot of friends, I want to get to know my livejournal friends and have them get to know me.

I'd like to add you, and Holly said she'd vouch for me! I'm also a cat-loving teacher. Currently avid LJ reader but I don't post very much. I'd like to start posting more again. But I'd be interested in reading about your corrupt school!

Fall/Personal Facts
Name: Emily
Location: Australia
Occupation: Reference librarian
Fall and/or Halloween Tradition: Being Australian, we don't really have any, though this year I have been reading scary books in the lead up to Halloween and my partner and I plan to read spooky stories/poetry by candlelight on Saturday night. So maybe that will become a tradition?
Best or Worst Costume: Don't know about best, but I'm not a fan of "sexy ___" costumes.
Preferred Fall Drink: Hot chocolate. This is my favourite drink any time of year tbh. Mulled apple cider is also good, but that's probably more a winter thing.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: Ever After, most Disney and musicals.
Favorite Hobbies: singing, reading, blogging, theatre (both seeing and performing), writing, baking
Favorite TV Shows: Doctor Who, Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, various BBC period dramas that I watch casually.
Favorite Books: I don't really have specific favourites, but I enjoy fairytale retellings and clever urban fantasy. Some I've read this year and particularly enjoyed include
Favorite Fandoms: I'm not really into fandom much anymore, apart from chatting about Doctor Who a bit.
Favorite Pairings:

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: A lot about what I'm reading, other RL stuff.
How often do you update?: Once or twice a week usually. It gets a bit more sporadic towards the end of semester (I've just started a Masters)
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Some things in common is the main thing. Otherwise, what are we going to talk about?
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I try to comment as often as I can, though to be honest, sometimes I just really suck at it. So I don't really have any expectations of others on my journal, as long as we interact a little.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: People who just post fandom stuff or twitter updates. Also, I'm not a fan of comment stats. And the usual stuff about bigotry, close-mindedness, etc.

If you like "hot chocolate with a little something extra," when eggnog season rolls around, you might want to try eggnog with a splash of amaretto liqueur, and apple pie spice sprinkled on top (whipped cream or not, your choice). Good stuff!

How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I comment if I have a good solid opinion on your entry. If it's a long entry then I may not read it all...if ever. I have a hard time focusing on long entries. I don't expect a comment on every single post.

I'd like to make some lasting friendships & you can't do that without some interaction.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Liars, cheaters, people that do illegal drugs, those that post tweets, people that bitch a lot about their situation but do nothing to correct it. Those that have huge egos are a no go as well....fine line between being confident & beging an egotistical fuckwad.

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: I curse too much (Klaatu Barada Nikto), I talk about stuff and thangs, I hate vegetables, I am not NT, I take photos and sometimes share them, I love (big) butts and the women who have them, I've lived in six countries (spread over 3 of the seven continents), I am completely boring, and I am politically correct. Lately I have been posting photographs of family adventures. We are going to start traveling again so i will be posting travel photos again. Some example:
travel
Click to make bigger.
How often do you update?: I try for twice a week.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone who is actually here. Too often I add people and they disappear. I like to make friends, connect with people, and learn about other people.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: After writing a new entry I go back and read my friends list to when I last post. I leave a comment when I feel I have something to say. I don't expect comments unless the reader feels they have something to say. I make an effort to interact and get to know my LJ friends and hope they do the same with me.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: I do not tolerate transphobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, antisemitism, racism, sexism, and ableism. I am genderqueer, poly, pansexual, and technically disabled so you have to be comfortable with that even though I don't talk about it much. I also have kids, but other than outings I don't talk about them much. I don't like reading fiction and fanfiction on LJ. I'm here to connect to people. It is ok to have it occasionally, but I will scroll past it and not read it. People have to be able to handle to occasional gripe from me because I am the adult child of abusive parents who I am no contact with, I have High-functioning Autism Raynaud's phenomenon, & Antiphospholipid syndrome (which caused many many miscarriages and health problems). I also have a dark sense of humor and can be a bit dry humor wise, and I like dark Poe and Lovecraft type things. I do try to keep upbeat though! :D

Fall/Personal Facts

Name: Chris

Location: northern New Jersey, USA

Occupation: Project Manager in the telecom industry

Fall and/or Halloween Tradition: Buying candy for kids that don't show up and then getting annoyed with myself

Best or Worst Costume: When I was a little kid I loved school buses (don't ask) so my mom made me a bus one year.

Preferred Fall Drink: Hot cider

A Few Favorites

Favorite Movies: I don't see very many movies; I get restless sitting still that long. Some lifetime favorites include Moonstruck, The Birdcage, original three Star Wars movies, Where the Day Takes You.

Favorite Hobbies: Being outside (camping/hiking), lifting weights, riding my mt. bike, travel/exploring, stand-up paddleboarding, writing fiction and blogging, generally wasting time online

Favorite TV Shows: Not a TV person at all. We did watch Downton Abbey and Grace and Frankie together but I literally do not turn on the TV for myself.

Favorite Books: The Little Prince, The Art of Racing in the Rain, The Cranberry Hush, the Buddies series by Ethan Mordden

Favorite Fandoms: I don't think I understand what this is, really. Jeeps, hot guys in Jeeps (or out of Jeeps, not fussy), NJ Devils hockey, NY Yankees baseball, craft beer, Airstreams, the history of passenger aviation and shipping, tons of rock/punk acts including Springsteen and Brian Fallon/Gaslight Anthem and a lot of unsigned bands.

Favorite Pairings: Beer & a hockey game?

LJ Life

What do you usually write about?: Life, which largely consists of work, lifting weights, sitting around and eating with my BF/friends; travel, sometimes current events/stuff in the news but not often. Right now expect talk about writing because it's NaNoWriMo

How often do you update?: Almost everyday. It is therapy for me.

What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone who talks about their life, someone who makes me think.

How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I comment pretty often because I feel that part of the LJ "contract" is that you have the right to feel heard. I may ask a lot of questions, especially when we're new to each other. I like receiving comments especially if I have asked questions in my post. Part of the value to me is bouncing things off people who don't know the others in my real life and thus can be objective.

Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Posting only about TV or movies (see above, will be lost on me), endless memes (this seems to have died out, anyway), never commenting or acknowledging comments. Racism/sexism/general intolerance. Endlessly negative.

Fall/Personal Facts

Name: Lindsay

Location: Buffalo, New York, USA

Occupation: I work in Higher Ed, currently but that'll be ending in about a month... And then... I don't know what...

Fall and/or Halloween Tradition: Going for a drive to look at the gorgeous colorful foliage; apple picking (or just buying) at a local farm; getting excited for cooler (non-sweating) weather!

Best or Worst Costume: For me? Best is something with some cute face paint and ears on a headband, but regular comfortable clothing. Worst is anything high maintenance or "sexy". Ain't nobody got time for that!

Preferred Fall Drink: Apple Cider Slushies from local cider mills or farms. Mmmm! I really only like cold drinks. I'm always schvitzing, so I don't do hot drinks.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: I have very specific favorites, but they range from 'You've Got Mail' to 'Demolition Man'. I'm hard pressed to find most movies made in the last decade or so that I LOVE.

Favorite Hobbies: Cooking, making art (including coloring in adult coloring books), co-leading a local Girl Scout Daisy group, swimming, etc.

Favorite TV Shows: I love Bravo TV... Real Housewives of OC, BH, NY especially. The Big Bang Theory used to be a favorite but the last 2 seasons have not been funny, so eh. I still watch it though, OF COURSE. Ha! I love real crime shows like Dateline and 48 Hours, Criminal Minds, The Mysteries of Laura. I also LOVE cooking shows and my absolute favorite is My Grandmother's Ravioli. I also like HGTV.

Favorite Books: I love the author Sarah Addison Allen. Her books are enchanting. I also love Elizabeth Gilbert, Brene Brown, Christopher Rice, James Patterson, Katia Lief.

Favorite Fandoms: I barely know what this is. I've been on LJ for 11 years but I'm such a n00b when it comes to the inner workings.

Favorite Pairings: Chips & Salsa, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Tomato & Basil, Sun & Clouds, Frog & Toad, etc.

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: Life.

How often do you update?: Almost daily.

What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone who writes about life and enjoys having online friends. I like interaction. I don't mind if it's infrequent, I just want to know that you're there, that you care, and that you are indeed a friend, every once in a while.

How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: Often! I love checking in. Everyone needs a little encouragement from time to time.

Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Twitter cross-posts annoy the hell out of me. I'm not always merry sunshine but anyone who is nearly always negative or complaining is a major turn-off for me. I have several friends with mental health issues, but I don't enjoy journals that dwell on those issues and write little else about life. Also the usual - no bigots, perverts, -phobes of mostly anything (unless it's spiders because I totally understand that fear haha!), no lurkers, etc.

Obligatory Gif: No idea how to do this... :/

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: Either answering Writer's Block questions, or venting about the Maternal Unit (the creature who birthed me).
How often do you update?: Whenever WB submits a new question (assuming it's one I want to answer), or whenever the Maternal Unit chaps my hide to the point I have to either write about it, or explode.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: I have friends across a wide range of the LGBTQ spectrum, of many political/religious persuasions, with many different careers and educational levels. I'm not picky--if we click, we click. :-)
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I read my FL every day. I comment when I have something to say--but I don't do it *just* to say something, if that makes sense. If ppl wanna comment to anything I post, great, but I'm not heartbroken if it doesn't happen.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Bigotry, homophobia, arrogance.

Fall/Personal Facts

Name: Jen

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Occupation: Animator for TV, but I'm on hiatus because I'm pregnant with my first child. So I guess my occupation is now...bored housewife? But hopefully not forever. I don't like being bored.

Fall and/or Halloween Tradition: Usually my nerdy animator friends get together at this bar and have costume contests. Some of the costumes are SO elaborate, it's kind of crazy. Going to be out of town this year, so I'm going to miss it. So we're going with the other tradition of watching Nightmare Before Christmas. Wee!

Best or Worst Costume: My most favorite costume I made for Halloween was a female plague doctor in 2008, where I made the mask out of paper mache. Haven't made anything that cool since. Link: http://i.imgur.com/ziTYefq.jpg

Preferred Fall Drink: Hot chocolate with whipped cream on top. Oh..maybe that should happen, like right now...

A Few Favorites

Favorite Movies: Zoolander, Equilibrium, most recently, The Martian (book is also A+)

Favorite Hobbies: Drawing, animating, photography, hangin' with buddies, leathercrafting, playing video games, and cooking/baking! Pre-pregnancy I was very much into lifting weights. I hope to get back to that after I poop out a baby. (Okay, I realize that you don't "poop" out a baby, but it seemed appropriate...). I also like forcing my cat, Booker, to cuddle me.

Favorite TV Shows: Survivor, Hannibal, House of Cards, Fresh off the Boat, Brooklyn 99, Supernatural, and a billion other tv shows. I watch a lot of TV...

Favorite Books: Harry Potter at the moment. I've been on a crazy "Re-read the Harry Potter series over and over" loop lately.

Favorite Fandoms: N/A

Favorite Pairings: N/A

LJ Life

What do you usually write about?: My life, with little photos of stuff that is happening. My husband and I are expecting a baby, so there probably will be some writing of that, considering I know crap about babies. I'll probably be writing about my steep learning curve and how I'm thrust into it. Though I try not to flood multiple entries with one topic. I like to try to spread it around.

How often do you update?: Every other day-ish. And have been since 2001!

What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone who also writes about their lives, maybe posts photos. I'm really not one for people who write constantly about fandoms, books, and movies. I like all those things, but I don't really want to read about them.

How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: While I'm not a huge commenter, I do try. But if you want someone to comment on your every single post, I'm not quite sure you'll find that in me. I just don't wanna disappoint anyone. On a similiar note, I don't expect comments. But when I do get them, I always reply (unless it slips through the cracks).

Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Too much fandom stuff. People who's entry consist of a single paragraph or less?? I loooooove reading about people's lives, getting to know them. I also like active people. I very rarely do friends cuts, but when I do, it's always the inactive ones who haven't posted for 3 months or so that go!

Obligatory Gif: I dunno much about gifs, so I googled, "Cute kitten gif." Bam, I hope this works.

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: my life, work, friends, the occasional rant. Anything really.
How often do you update?: every few days, usually several times a week
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone to have an interaction with. I like hearing about people's lives, what they do, what they feel, what their opinions are.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I like commenting and receiving comments, but I don't count comments or make comment stats, I don't really have any expectations in that sense, just a few comments now and then would be nice, because why else add each other if you're not interested in communicating!
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: Someone who's a hardcore conservative probably won't like reading my journal (and I theirs). Else I don't like narrow-minded people, and have zero tolerance for bigotry, homophobia, sexism, racism, and all the other isms and intolerance.

Name: Annavera, but I go by Avi online
Location: Innsbruck and Vienna, Austria
Occupation: Student (classical voice and musicology)
Fall and/or Halloween Tradition: I don't really have one? I basically just love preparing and being excited for Halloween (which isn't really a big thing here unfortunately), buying decoration, planning ALL THE MEALS EVER, carving a pumpkin and then have a very cozy evening with either my parents or my bff (depending on where i am; this year it's going to be with my parents since I'll be home!) full of harmless creepy fun and movies such as Pooh's Halloween Movie (or however it's called) since I'm super squeamish and easily scared xD. It's perfect the way it is, though ♥
Best or Worst Costume: Umm... I never properly dressed up for Halloween because of above reason, BUT I do have quite a few ridiculously cute accessories such as headbands that I love wearing and think I look pretty funny in xD.
Preferred Fall Drink: Pumpkin Spice Milk! (I don't drink coffee, so I just drink hot milk with the pumpkin spice - it's delicious :D) Oh, and mulled apple punch! Generally, all kinds of alcohol free punch <3.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: Memoirs Of A Geisha, Harry Potter Series, The Mummy Returns, Cracks, Casino Royale, Skyfall, Les Choristes, Rebecca (BBC), Mary Poppins, anything Winnie the Pooh, anything Disney in general, anything cute Halloween-y
Favorite Hobbies: SINGING! Singing totally isn't a hobby since I study to become an opera singer, but it's still my favourite thing to do <333. Generally, theatre - going to all kinds of theatre, not only opera but also musicals and plays and everything <3, ballet, writing, hanging out with my friends, shopping, did I mention singing already?
Favorite TV Shows: Game Of Thrones, Gilmore Girls, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Sherlock BBC, Charmed, Life
Favorite Books: Memoirs Of A Geisha, Harry Potter Series, A Song Of Ice And Fire, The City Of Dreaming Books, Rebecca

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: Everything! Real life and fandom, I post memes and pictures and fanworks... Everything, really.
How often do you update?: Pretty frequently - I was in a bit of a slump recently, but I'm going back to updating at least twice per week, but probably more... Sometimes there are even two updates on a day, but those are rare.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: That they'd like to interact with me and would actually like to connect!
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I used to comment a lot more than I am now, but I'm trying to get back on track - I might cover myself in silence for a while, but that does not mean I'm not interested in what you post or not reading your posts! And I totally don't expect comments at all - I mean, of course I love them, but you don't have to comment just for the sake of commenting; I love to interact with my LJ friends in the comments, and quality definitely goes over quantity! ♥
