Name: That is under flock. Sorry...
Age: 30
Location: USA
What's in your journal: Fandom musings (Harry Potter, other fandoms and general), societal/everyday life musings, musings on social media and pop culture (I have a blog within a blog called "Shit My Facebook Says") and the occasional fun parody post. I have some RL, but it's not too RL heavy.
What rating is your journal: PG-13
Favourite HP character(s): Remus, Tonks, Hermione, Sirius, Neville, Luna.
Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: History, writing, films.
Friending policy: Don't really have one?
Hogwarts house: Hufflepuff. I'm such a Hufflepuff.
Familiar: Owl, toad or cat? I'd say a cat, but owls seem most useful in the universe. Just saying.
Favourite Hogwarts class: Ideally History of Magic, but I hated instructors like Binns, who'd bore me even though I loved history! Perhaps Muggle Studies or Transfiguration. :)

Name: Evan
Age: 23
Location: USA
What's in your journal: So far, just personal stuff and writing about writing. There will be hp fanfiction for sure, and possibly original fanfiction and other fandoms.
What rating is your journal: NC-17
Favourite HP character(s): All of them? Harry, Ron, Hermione, Severus, Lucius, Narcissa, Draco, Bellatrix, Luna...
Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: Writing original fic, video games, movies (a lot of horror), reading. Sometimes I like to fool around in photoshop. I'm considering learning to code.
Friending policy: I just need some kind of contact before I friend back. Commenting here or on my lj would be perfect.
Hogwarts house: Slytherin
Familiar: Can I say rat, because of Ron? If not, owl.
Favourite Hogwarts class: Probably Care of Magical Creatures.
Favourite pairing(s): Lucius x Narcissa
What you do in fandom: Write. I'm trying to start reviewing/commenting too. I've done a couple of edits.
What you can offer to friends: I haven't been the best commenter in the past, but I'm working on it. Also I love to talk outside of lj. And if you want someone to read over/beta your fic, I'm totally willing.
How long you've been in fandom: Um... I started writing HP fanfic in 2004? I think? So 10 years of active participation online. I started going to Harry Potter release parties with Goblet of Fire (the book), though, which could count.
Other fandoms you like: A Song of Ice and Fire, Doctor Who (9 & 10)... I like a lot of stuff, but I don't always consider myself part of the fandom.
Other comms you like: Nothing I can name at the moment. On the lookout for new comms, though.
Anything else you'd like to share: This is a new journal, but I fully intend on staying for a long time.

Name: kisslicknipsuck
Age: 23
Location: Ohio, US
What's in your journal: Mixture of fanfic and personal entries. Although, admittedly, I don't post very often. I've been trying to be better at updating my journal...
What rating is your journal: NC-17, mostly because of the fanfic^///^
Favourite HP character(s): Severus♥, Harry, Draco, Hermione, Luna, Remus
Interests/Hobbies outside of fandom: reading, tv/movies, arts and crafts (especially knitting and scrapbooking), music, video games (despite the fact that I'm terrible at actually finishing any:'D), and my boyfriend has recently gotten me into American comics
Friending policy: I don't really have a policy. I'll friend anyone who posts in English and seems to post new entries more than once a year. Honestly, even if we don't have a lot in common, I'll probably still accept your friend request. I like meeting new people:)
Hogwarts house: Slytherin. Always.
Familiar: Owl. There's just something about a large bird of prey that piques my interest. It might be because they're also called raptors, and that word makes one think of all kinds of awesome things, but whatever. Owls are cool.
Favourite Hogwarts class: Potions. I feel like I'd be good at Potions.
Favourite pairing(s): Snarry first and foremost. But also, Harry/Draco, Severus/Draco, Severus/Hermione, Harry/Draco/Severus, Harry/Hermione/Severus, Harry/Hermione, Remus/Harry, Harry/Luna, Draco/Hermione, Draco/Luna, Neville/Draco, James/Severus, Severus/Remus, and also a strange fondness for Charlie/Draco that I don't understand because I've never really cared one way or another about Charlie Weasley.
What you do in fandom: Mostly lurk, honestly, but I also write fic. I try to comment when I read fic. Occasionally, when I'm not too busy with college, I will participate in fests. I'm sad I missed hd_owlpost this year:( I also beta sometimes.
What you can offer to friends: Unfortunately, not much:'D I post irregularly since I fall in and out of fandom because of college, and that generally effects my ability to read and comment on other peoples' posts. But I do try. I enjoy getting to know new people, so I like conversations when they arise. Also, again, I beta sometimes.
How long you've been in fandom: I don't even know anymore...
Other fandoms you like: Merlin, Sherlock, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Leverage, The Big Bang Theory...and others, but I don't really follow the fandoms--except for Merlin. I check Merlin every once in a while.
Other comms you like: snape_potter, hd_owlpost, hprarepairs, snarry100
Anything else you'd like to share: Let's all be friends!:D
