I’ve been tagged by beverlycrushcr to do a thing!
1) Why did you choose your URL?
Because I like space, and my name is Llin! (And also because this has been my online name since like 2002 and I’m too set in my ways to change it now.)
2) What is your middle name?
3) If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet, what would it be?
Maaaaaaaaaaaaybe a unicorn but I don’t know if that would count as a pet. You DEFINITELY couldn’t count a dragon as a pet, but it would be fun to have one as a friend.
4) Favourite colour?
Is it green? Is it purple? Is it red? Is it dark blue? I’m not sure. One of those. I was actually thinking the other day about how when you’re a kid this is a normal and expected getting-to-know-you question and most people have an answer, and then once you grow up people seem to care a lot less about what colours you like.
5) Favourite song?
There’s no way I could ever narrow it down to one definitive favourite, but my current endless repeat song is Third Eye from the new Florence + the Machine album.
6) What are your top five fandoms?
At least three of them are Star Trek. But no, if I’m allowed to count the whole of Star Trek as one, then, obviously that’s the top. After that… in terms of my fannish output, Doctor Who/The Sarah Jane Adventures is probably next on the list, followed by Harry Potter fandom (or, let’s face it, McGonagall fandom, guest-starring Molly). Most of my M*A*S*H fic is not around now but it’s definitely one of the fandoms that’s meant the most to me for longest. And I’m not going to pick a fifth because there are too many. It’s breaking my heart not to be listing like twenty more things.
7) Why do you enjoy Tumblr?
I love how much it caters to the way I like to enjoy stuff - gifsets are a perfect compromise when you want to be rewatching something constantly but don’t have time, and they lend themselves to the sort of detailed analysis of canon that I love. Also making a Tumblr post with just one random observation or headcanon feels ok and not intimidating, and if you put it in the tag then other people will see it whether they know you or not, and maybe share or add to your ideas. I don’t find it quite as easy to make friends here as I did on LJ/DW, but in spite of that I’ve met some really awesome people.
8) Tag all 9 of your Tumblr crushes
Apparently my Tumblr crushes are jescissa touchdownpossum mylittleredgirl pixiedane starstarship sophiagratia carawj silly-cleo usuallyhats - but if you’re not them and want to do this, consider yourself tagged, and if you are and you don’t want to, obv don’t! ;)
