Posted by [personal profile] skygiants
Oh I'm down for this!

1. Username(s): [personal profile] skygiants @ DW, [profile] bookelfe @ LJ
2. Language(s): Only English, alas!
3. Past (non-western) fandoms:
anime - Princess Tutu, Fullmetal Alchemist (manga and Brotherhood anime), Revolutionary Girl Utena, Baccano!, Twelve Kingdoms, Ouran High School Host Club, Durarara!, Mawaru Penguin Drum (WHAT EVEN WAS THAT), more that I'm sure I'm forgetting
manga - 7 Seeds, Skip Beat!, Gokusen, 20th Century Boys and most other Urasawa stuff, Claymore, Pumpkin Scissors, Basara, Yotsuba&!
dramas - Capital Scandal, Sunkyunkwan Scandal, Legend of the First King's Four Gods, You're Beautiful, Coffee Prince, Gaksital (sort of) (it's complicated) (very complicated)
4. Present (non-western) fandoms: I'm not sure what the distinction is between past and present, but I'm currently rewatching Princess Tutu, in the middle of a (very slow) first-time watch of Haibane Renmei, actively reading 7 Seeds (SOMEONE COME TALK TO ME ABOUT 7 SEEDS IT IS MY FAVORITE), Claymore, and Skip Beat! (about which my feelings are very ambivalent right now), and also in the middle of watching through Gaksital, Arang and the Magistrate, and Faith. And also still talking a lot about Capital Scandal because ALWAYS. I'm also trying to watch more Bollywood films after seeing a few this summer and loving them.
5. What you like to blog about: Mostly media! This is mostly books because I consume those the fastest, but I try to write up most of what I consume.
6. Random thing about yourself: I REVERT TOO EASILY TO ALLCAPS.

1. Username(s): [personal profile] the_rck, [livejournal.com profile] therck
2. Language(s): English. I don't think my Spanish, after all these years of not using it, is up to anything serious. The words have gone.
3. Past (non-western) fandoms: I've written Weiss Kreuz (I'm still writing in this fandom, so it maybe should count as a present fandom), Clover, Nightwalker, Seirei no Moribito, Naruto (manga only, and I've recently given up on it because I don't care about the big fights any more), Legal Drug, Ranma 1/2, and InuYasha. I'm currently rewatching Princess Tutu and Cowboy Bebop. I'm fond of Rurouni Kenshin (looking forward to seeing the new movie!), Haibane Renmei, Slayers, the Lupin III movies, Nazca, R.O.D., Utena, Shamanic Princess, Full Metal Panic (particularly FuMoFu), Trigun (anime only. I can't follow the action of the manga), Ayatsuri Sakon, Saiyuki, Yami no Matsuei, and Planet Ladder. I've enjoyed some wuxia, but I can't remember any of the titles but Romance of Red Dust. I know there have been others. I loved what I saw of Dae Jang Geum, but Netflix only had the first series (seventeen or eighteen episodes and ending with a cliffhanger). I think that's changed, so I'll be watching more soon.
4. Present (non-western) fandoms: I'm not sure I have any beyond, possibly, Weiss Kreuz. I haven't watched anything much new recently. I'm always interested in recommendations, particularly if they're things that Netflix has (Netflix's lack of Chinese and Korean TV shows really frustrates me). I haven't managed to get myself to do anything with Hulu or Crunchyroll yet, beyond bookmarking them. I tend to be a slow adapter.
5. What you like to blog about: I mostly blog about my everyday life, my daughter and my husband. I sometimes talk about what I'm currently writing. I do occasional DVD and book logs (those are tagged). I do fic announcements five or six times a year but don't post my fic to my journal (it's at AO3, [archiveofourown.org profile] the_rck, and my website). I do occasional posts about disability and medical issues.
6. Random thing about yourself: I tend to prefer stories with elements of science fiction or fantasy or conspiracy but can't tolerate horror very well.

Netflix actually has a decent selection of cdramas. I've watched Lotus Lantern, Men and Legends, The Spirit of the Sword and Legend of the Condor Heroes (they list it as Eagle Shooting heroes). They also have Wing Chun, Fox Volant of the Snowy Mountain, and The Legendary Warrior. I know there are also a few others that I own that they have, but I'd have to look them up. They also have a lot of kdramas available for streaming.

ghost_lingering: Yi Nok wearing sunglasses and being pretty (I love you)
Posted by [personal profile] ghost_lingering
1. I am ghost_lingering basically everywhere! DW, LJ (though that is just a locked mirror of DW), AO3. I am not on tumblr or twitter at the moment.

2. English

3. Anime & manga of various sorts and some jdramas. Ummmmmm...Nobuta wo Produce, Fullmetal Alchemist, Prince of Tennis are the things I've probably posted most about?

4. Kdramas! Though I am behind on watching things. I'm behind on watching and reading basically everything lately, not just kdramas though. Anyway. But Hong Gil Dong, Painter of the Wind, Capital Scandal are the ones I've posted most about. I also really like the webcomic Hero: http://invisiblecities.comicgenesis.com/ Which is in English, FYI. I watch documentaries and other foreign films, as well, though I don't always post about them. Basically I am saying these are present fandoms because I either have vidding projects I want to do with them or because they are the things I am currently reading/watching, sort of. But, again, super behind on everything. I have a list of things to watch/catch up on that is miles long.

5. (I am answering this as both what I like to blog about AND what I like to read about.) I tend not to blog much and when I do it is typically about vidding and/or how I don't blog much. I am also a very shy commentor. I sometimes post about music and cooking, which I feel are fandoms of mine, but that also don't really fit into the mold of fandom-at-large. For the past ... a really long time ... cooking has been the one constant positive creative outlet for me, whereas vidding and writing comes and goes. I'm always on the lookout for new music and cooking posts. I'm also usually on the outlook for more vidding posts, but since my fandoms don't always match up with popular vidding fandoms this is a bit more haphazard.

In general I love vids, I love sci-fi/fantasy, I love awesome female characters, I love meta analysis. I try to focus on the things I love in fandom, even though some of those things, like vids and meta, might, themselves, focus on problems that I don't love in source texts. If that makes sense? Possibly it does not. IDEK.

Relevant to this friending meme: I'd love to expand my musical knowledge of non-English and non-western music, for both personal listening pleasure and also because I've love to expand my repetoire of vidding songs -- ngl, I basically just want to find the perfect vid songs for both Painter of the Wind and Hong Gil Dong. I also love reading about food, cooking, and different cuisines and cooking techniques. I'd love to find someone who is a vidder who loves kdramas and would be a cheerleader for both vidding kdramas and watching kdramas.

In a blatant ploy (that might even be relevant to this friending meme? Maybe? Possibly? Who knows?!) to get people try to find my vid and comment on it: if you can guess what vid I made for festivids I will make you something.

6. I am currently semi-obsessed with reading money blogs; despite issues I have with The Awl, my current favorite money blog is The Billfold because it is non-judgemental and Mike and Logan both sound like they could be friends of mine and I think they play off each other really well, though some contributors are a bit too ... idek, "lalala class priveledge, I has it". But I still like it, because, see above, non-judgemental. I am also currently reading the book Debt: the past 5000 years which is interesting so far, if only because I am at the point where he is like: guys, listen, let me tell you HISTORY and how no one seems to be paying attention to the shit that actually went down. I also like that he is pretty global in how he discusses the history of money/debt/the economy/etc. It's not just "hey Europe did this, America did this". But I'm also not enough of a econ/anthropology/history buff to know how much I should take with a grain of salt.

Ohai thar, I see you like music. My main fandom lately is Vocaloid and Utattemita, i.e. amateur music from nico nico / youtube. Would you be interested in that? I know it's a bit polarizing, one of those "either you love it or you hate it" things...

shati: yong ha trollface #453 ([skks] i'm gu yong ha)
Posted by [personal profile] shati
1. Username(s): [personal profile] shati. I'm also on tumblr at [tumblr.com profile] revolutionarygirlshati and AO3 as [archiveofourown.org profile] shati.

2. Language(s): English is all I have any claim to fluency in.

3. Past (non-western) fandoms: I'm going to define this as fandoms I used to be active in or fandoms I might read/watch fanworks in if they showed up on my flist? For movies -- Asoka, Om Shanti Om, and Chak De! India are the ones I've tried to get other people to vid for me recently. (I don't try to watch SKR movies, it just happens. I swear I have seen other movies. They almost all have Kajol or Hrithik Roshan, BUT STILL.)

The rest would be mostly anime -- Seirei no Moribito, Darker Than Black, some of Yuu Watase's and Kaori Yuki's work, Madoka (I have mixed feelings though), Mai-HiME (well, and this...), Mawaru Penguindrum (I have united feelings of "AHHH WTF"), Gundam Wing badfic, Angel Beats, I guess maybe Railgun but I have mixed feelings about that too. Saiunkoku. Uta-Kata? These days I mostly keep track here when I'm paying attention.

4. Present (non-western) fandoms: Fandoms I'm actually vidding or writing in or may vid/write in ANY DAY NOW:

Revolutionary Girl Utena is an old favorite forever. Haibane Renmei is a new favorite! I've also finally figured out how to acquire kdramas, so I'm catching up on shows I've been curious about for years. Capital Scandal, Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and Arang and the Magistrate are my favorites right now. (I'm still about halfway through Arang.) Recs are welcome! I may someday watch something that is not historical. Maybe.

I'm usually not active in a ton of fandoms at once. When I am active, I'm usually more into vids and vidding than fic and writing.

5. What you like to blog about: Vidding mostly, I think, and whatever I'm watching. I write fic maybe once every few years if I am to be scrupulously honest.

6. Random thing about yourself: Sometimes I dream about waking up and making breakfast and taking a shower and then I actually wake up and I'm incredibly annoyed that I have to do it all over again. Other times I dream that I'm a ghost or that I have a free-standing freezer and vending machine in my bedroom! Much better.

meganbmoore: (why trick icons are rare)
Posted by [personal profile] meganbmoore
1. Username(s): meganbmoore at lj, dw and tumblr, meganbm123 on twitter.
2. Language(s): Only English.
3. Past (non-western) fandoms: Like others, I'm not entirely certain what it means. I've consumed so much manga, manhwa, anime, jdramas, kdramas and cdramas that I could list a dozen favorites and then edit ten times with OMG HOW COULD I FORGET>>>. For kdramas and cdramas, I prefer the sageuks and wuxias, and I tend to like the romance and mystery jdramas. I also like some comedy jdramas, but sometimes they get too OTT for me. For anime and manga, some favorites are Blade of the Immortal, Basara, Twelve Kingdoms, Princess Tutu, Rurouni Kenshin, Skip-Beat, Full Metal Alchemist, Samurai Deeper Kyo, and Claymore. I'm also generally fond of Kaori Yuki, Clamp and Arina Tanemura series, despite their problems.
4. Present (non-western) fandoms: I hqaven't really looked for fandom outside my reading lists for these, but recently I've binged on Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun,
Inu x Boku and K Project animes, Boss 2 for jdramas, and Arang and the magistrate for kdramas. For cdramas, I've been sloewly watching Legend of the Condor Heroes 2008, The Spirit of the Sword, Chinese Detective, and Holy Pearl. The first 2 I watch whenever Netflix sends me a disc, and the other 2 are based on when subtitles come out. I also like Bollywood a lot and have enjoyed the few South Indian films I've seen.
5. What you like to blog about: Mostly things I read and watch. Making icons also relaxes me, so I have a lot of icon posts.
6. Random thing about yourself:

4. Present (non-western) fandoms: (Still!) Hikaru no Go, Kuroko no Basuke, Kpop Star, historical K-dramas (fusion and non-fusion, of which the latest infatuation was Arang and the Magistrate)
5. What you like to blog about: Mostly links and signalboosts, occasional reviews of media consumption, (more recently) the weekly reading meme, complaining about offline life under access lock
6. Random thing about yourself: I didn't list them as fandoms due to the fact that I don't often blog/make fanworks for them, but I am also very fond of wuxia, Wong Kar Wai and what Bollywood films I've seen (esp. Chak De! India and Dil Bole Hadippa).

2. Languages: English, limited Mandarin

3. Past (non-western) fandoms: I was sucked into anime & manga only late last year by a combination of id-chasing and people terribly good at taping my eyes open, so the world is still my oyster. Spirited Away? Zhang Yimou films?

4. Present (non-western) fandoms: Revolutionary Girl Utena, Loveless, Hyakujitsu no Bara | Maiden Rose, tropes & narrative kinks in general
4b. Possible future fandoms-- canons I'm currently or hoping to be consuming soon: Black Lagoon, After School Nightmare, Princess Tutu, Durarara!!, or [help me conduct an affair with new fandoms with intense dysfunctional relationships and/or femslash potential and/or careful worldbuilding]

5. What you like to blog about: Flail (media reactions, textspam, rambling meta, occasional fic) and the even more occasional, locked snippet of my offline life. I shepherd my teal deer (tl;dr) from pasture to pasture, enjoy playing with both interpretations that coincide with and that challenge my own, and comment on a wider range of subjects than I can possibly post. You should probably be forewarned that this is appallingly wrong is no deterrence to my fannish interest. *g* I've been a lurker in journal-based fandom for years, and I'm always fascinated by how other people Do This Thing.

6. Random: Apart from their allegorical significance, pomegranates are the most delicious fruits. ♥

Ooh, a fellow Black Lagoon fan! Although I'm admittedly not caught up on recent chapters, it's on my fandom to-do list. Anyway, I also like femslash, so is it cool if I friend you?

I loooove Princess Tutu and Princess Jellyfish, and I keep meaning to finish them. Especially Tutu — I've only watched like 5 episodes, but I fell so hard in love that I was reluctant to watch anymore because I didn't want it to end! :F Anyway, can I friend you?

2. Language(s): English, and clawing my way back to my mother tongue, Mandarin.

3&4. Past/present (non-western) fandoms: I don't create many things, but enjoy reading meta, fanworks, and making comments! So these are some things I really liked:
- Games: Final Fantasy series (primarily FF8)
- Animanga: Skip Beat!, Princess Tutu, Fullmetal Alchemist Kimi ni Todoke, Eve no Jikan, Silver Spoon. Currently hooked on Psycho-pass.

- Used to watch a lot of wuxia in my childhood; would really like to get back into watching that, and more c-dramas/movies! I really enjoyed Mulan (2009).

5. What you like to blog about: Drawing, food, personal/political issues, some fannish things. Under access lock I write about my life.

6. Random thing about yourself: It doesn't quite show here, but my favourite thing to read is scifi/fantasy.

2. Language(s): German, English, French, slowly nearing being able to have an actual conversation not about monkeys in trees in Japanese

3. Past (non-western) fandoms: Dragon Ball Z was my introduction to fandom over 10 years ago. Since then, there have been D.Gray-Man, Ouran High School Host Club, Hikaru no Go, a brief fling with Gackt fandom before I noticed that the man may be brilliant and pretty but he's also kind of an asshole, plus many anime and manga that I would love to read fic for but couldn't find any.

4. Present (non-western) fandoms: Vocaloid, Utattemita, Piko (I'm also somewhat interested in Visual Kei, though I wouldn't say a fan yet), more Anime (No.6, AKB0048, Sword Art Online, K, Shin Sekai Yori, Zetsuen no Tempest, Madoka Magica), crossdressing manga (basically anything translated by Hachimitsu Scans), Junjou Romantica, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi etc (when I can see anything between facepalms, because DEAR AUTHOR I WISH YOU WOULD DISPLAY THE SLIGHTEST AWARENESS THAT THESE PEOPLE ALL HAVE TRUST ISSUES UP THE WAZOO AND HAVE APPARENTLY NEVER HEARD OF CONSENT although it does make for plenty of tasty UST)

5. What you like to blog about: long silences punctuated by random squealing about slashy pairings. Unless I have specific projects, like that introduction to Vocaloid I did just before the Vocaloid 3 release (which could really do with an update for all the new voice banks that came out since!), or the running translation of Piko's blog I did last year that I've unfortunately had to give up for lack of time.

6. Random thing about yourself: Despite my main fandoms being ALL ABOUT MUSIC these days, I am actually tone-deaf as hell and can't even read notes.

1. Username(s): [personal profile] timescout - the same in LJ
2. Language(s): Finnish (native), English, Swedish, German (though that one has gone pretty rusty from non-use) and a smattering of Korean (I understand way more than I can speak).
3. Past (non-western) fandoms: Same as present... I think....
4. Present (non-western) fandoms: Dramas - mainly Korean but I do watch j-dramas, tw-dramas and some mainland China ones too. Generally I prefer the more angsty stuff e.g revenge/action/crime/procedurals, historicals + some melos but also well made long, family/weekend dramas and slice of life. Romcoms are usually not my cup of tea (they tend to bore me) but if it's a proper romance, it may get a 'pass'.
5. What you like to blog about: About dramas I watch/watched, LOL! There are quite a few music posts too... I like k-pop, so sue me. ;P Oh, and some random RL posts (locked) every once in a while.
6. Random thing about yourself: I like to sing along while listening to music.
