I don't really have specifications as to the kind of people I do or don't want on my flist. Friendships can obviously develop for all sorts of reasons! However, we might get along better if you:
*share common interests with me
*are on the left side of the political spectrum
*are able to at least politely scroll past the kind of long, tedious rambling I am sometimes prey to - and now you can't say I didn't warn you :P
*like to comment, for comments are shiny
I usually write about my life more than I write about any specific subject, academic or fandom-y. But you should still probably be aware that I'm a huge history nerd and absolutely passionate about the French Revolution. As far as the telly goes, I love Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Blackadder and occasionally post about those. I wouldn't describe myself as being active in any fandom - I sort of just lurk at the back of some of the main communities that deal with my interests. The notable exception is revolution_fr, which I mod. But then, 'French Revolution' isn't exactly a fandom. XD
I read a lot, watch quite a few movies, enjoy writing but am seldom able to motivate myself do it, and make icons whenever the urge strikes me.
Overall, I think I'm a relatively easy person to get along with; I'm not the sort to go around picking fights, looking to be offended, or anything like that. Well. As long as my favorite revolutionaries' postmortem honor isn't at stake. :P I kid. Sort of.
Anyway, yes. If you want to know anything else, just check my userinfo or ask me.
