About yours truly - friending policy post; sticky

Well, I had been wanting to do one of these for a while, let's go for it.


friending policy >> This is a mostly public journal, though it does have some FO posts.

If you’d like to friend me, go right ahead! If you'd like me to friend you back, though, please drop me a comment in this post or send me a PM? I just like to know who's reading my personal entries and I usually don't friend back automatically if I don't know you from some place. I don't bite and I'll most likely friend back. This is also for the bunch of people whom I haven't friended back. Say hi? :)

other places where you can find me online/on LJ >> Twitter | | Tumblr | rateyourmusic | youtube | rockin_graphix [icon comm, shared with lasamy]

basics >> Hi! I'm Lavinia, I'm 23, I'm Italian, I'm a university student, I go to marches, I like Bruce Springsteen too much and I get easily obsessed. Also, I'm addicted to caffeine. That stated, I study philosophy, I read a lot, I'm a music geek and I like to write. Mostly slash fanfiction.

what's in this journal >> a mostly uneven balance of RL and fannish stuff, which mainly consists in Supernatural/Lost/A Song of Ice and Fire (mostly slash) fanfiction/talking at the moment. There's also a lot of bitching about my former government (though less than there used to be since it became former) and a lot of flailing about the stated fannish stuff.

music >> Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Doors, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Patti Smith, Warren Zevon, Steve Earle, Bob Dylan, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Guns n' Roses, John Frusciante, U2, Janis Joplin, Jeff Buckley, Johnny Cash, E-Street Band members, Keith Urban (shut up, I love him), Nirvana, Beatles, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Wallflowers, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam, Pete Seeger. And Mozart (and opera in general).

movies >>Blade Runner, Casablanca, Last tango in Paris, A Perfect World, Mystic River,, Stagecoach, Rashomon, Kill Bill and Tarantino in general, Psycho, Some like it hot, The man who killed Liberty Valance, The Grapes of Wrath, Edward Scissorhands, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven, Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, The Godfather part II and II, I'm Not There, A Nightmare on Elm Street original flavor, Sabrina, Velvet Goldmine, Woody Allen stuff in general, The Pianist, 1997: Escape From New York, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. Yes, I like classics, whacked sci-fi, noirs, westerns and Clint Eastwood. Also I'll watch anything Johnny Depp is in.

books >> 1984 (which would be my favorite ever), The Three Musketeers (and Dumas in general <3), Wuthering Heights, Maurice, The Grapes Of Wrath (and Steinbeck generally), anything by Stephen King especially The Dark Tower Series <3, Slaughterhouse Five, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, Lolita, anything by Nick Hornby especially High Fidelity, Alias Grace (and Margaret Atwood, generally, too), the Lord Of The Rings trilogy (though I read all the Tolkien basics), American Gods, Good Omens, Anne Frank's Diary, Sherlock Holmes stories, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, And Then There Were None, the A Song of Ice and Fire series. Usually I mostly like classics but if it's up my alley I'll read anything.

tv >> Lost, Supernatural (also, my current main fandoms), Deadwood, Pushing Daisies, Six Feet Under, Firefly, Game of Throne, The Wire, Chuck, The Vampire porn Diaries, Sirens, Friday Night Lights (though I'm not caught up on that); historical tv obsessions are Ally McBeal, the X-Files and Judging Amy. Yes, I like cheese and it had Adrian Pasdar. Regarding that, I used to like Heroes a lot. Then I quit it in S3. And I miss Adrian Pasdar's face. (TV related: if you hate either Boone from Lost or Castiel from SPN, you will probably hate me.)

people >> my crush #1 (because he was the first and for a whole bunch of other reason) is Jon Bon Jovi. My major current crush is Misha Collins. My historical TV crush is Ian Somerhalder. Other people I fangirl: Johnny Depp, Bruce Springsteen, Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, Uma Thurman, Duff McKagan, John Frusciante, Scott Weiland, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Ewan McGregor. Oh, and Matt Bomer, thanks. And Richard Madden. If we also include dead people, you can add Humphrey Bogart, Marlon Brando, James Dean, James Stewart, Cary Grant and Henry Fonda.

what I ship >> [all fictional.] Lost: Jack/Boone, Boone/pretty much anything that breathes, Desmond/Sayid, Desmond/Penny, Jack/Sawyer, Jack/Juliet, Sawyer/Sayid. SPN: Dean/Castiel, Dean/Castiel/Sam, Sam/Dean, Sam/Castiel, Chuck/Becky, Ash/anyone really, Bobby/awesomeness, Balthazar/Castiel-Dean-Sam (one or more, I'm not picky). Deadwood: Jane/Joanie, Sol/Trixie. Chuck: Bryce/Chuck. Dark Tower series: Roland/Eddie (aka my #1 OTP ever I think). Firefly: Wash/Zoe. Six Feet Under: David/Keith, Nate/Brenda. Vampire porn Diaries: Damon/Alaric. LOTR: Faramir/Eowyn. FNL: Jason/Tim. ASOIAF: Jaime/Brienne, Sansa/Sandor, Robb/Theon, Jon/Sam.

other random shit that might be useful >> • I hate wank. With a vengeance. I'm all for discussing, but character bashing makes me unhappy and I don't do it, generally. I also am boring and don't do ship wars or fandom wars of any kind. I also tend not to take anything fandom-related too seriously for that reason. Hey, I like having fun.
• I can get very opinionated. Especially when talking politics.
• I squee. And flail. A lot. At least when it's fandom-related stuff I like and when it's a concert review.
• I like the Flying Spaghetti Monster a lot.

And this is kind of it. Hi again!
