Have Been Unavoidably Detained By The World

Expect Me When You See Me

I am a college graduate (well over 18!) involved in various book, tv show, movie, anime and comic book fandoms. (I keep trying for gaming, but it's not happening.) So this is mostly a fandom-related journal with occasional entries about the real world and life.

These days I'm mostly into the new Doctor Who, Torchwood and DC Comics, so most of my posts concern those.

To quote myself: "I tend to write in this journal more like the way I would speak the same information. In other words, I write for speaking, which can be different, and more casual, than writing for reading." So when I overuse caps, italics, and underlining, know that I am trying to convey how I would communicate this information were I speaking to you. I am aware of the basic rules of grammar.

Note I made my livejournal when I was very much a Lord of the Rings fan, hence the fandom-specific name. I'm used to it, so it's staying, but it hardly describes me anymore. I tend to prefer the handle "Eldabe" which I use over at Dreamwidth and AO3.

Feel free to friend me or comment or whatever. I'm a complete lurker myself but if you find me for whatever reason, please say "Hi!" Comments make me immeasurably happy. But honestly, anything friend-locked is probably some boring stuff about my life anyway. I'll friend you if I want to follow what you are writing, or if I think you're cool. No pressure to friend me back. :)
