This is my blanket statement. You are more than free (in fact, I'd be ecstatic) to make any transformative works based on anything I've created. Just do me a solid and let me know so I can squee on it (and you) and spread the word of your awesome across the land. ♥

wordvagabond"All writery and awesome and stuff, and DOES NOT eat people at all. Usually."

aunt_agatha"I love her quite a lot."

capitu"She is like that moment before your first kiss with that person you've been dreaming about forever. It's about to happen, that kiss. You can almost taste it, and you are lightheaded and dizzy, and your breath catches in your chest and god, and there's a bubble inside you that is threatening to burst and the promise that everything is going to be all right in a minute, any second, really, all your dreams about to come true, because it's happening, the kiss, right now! That's what being her friend is like. She always makes your grass greener."

"The most daring thing to do with your life is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured."

Kurt Vonnegut

"At bottom, every man knows perfectly well that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time."

-Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher (1844-1900)


"Intellectual Whatnot" From Whatnot Co-Conspirator redsnake05:

"I see whatnot as the way our shared experience and knowledge of each other and our patterns give rise to a kind of mind meld, where 'whatnot' becomes the shorthand for a bunch of more complex ideas that we can fill in for ourselves without needing the trouble of articulation.

"So, when I use whatnot, it's not self-deprecating, it's a measure of trust and respect for you and your ability to pick up my intent and meaning
And other people might edge onto the whatnot, too. The mind meld can work sometimes and not others, depending on how we're clicking."

Also, I think whatnot is a recognition of diversity of interest too, that there are many things that take time and attention and all of them need exploring and evaluating. Whatnot is a portmanteau of interest and passion in different areas, a way of saying that we dabble and play in lots of arena.

"Poetic Whatnot" from Whatnotastic bronze_ribbons:

A nest of bright whatnot --
neon sugar, loud yarn --
everything's feathered with joy
as you spin


I mostly joined Live Journal to connect with Harry Potter fans around the world, because like them, I don't have enough real life people in my life who want to talk obsessively about a boy wizard becoming a man. Since then, I've sorta been exposed to this things called "fandom" and more importantly, this thing called "squee," I now use this journal to talk about what I'm loving at the time, which includes, but is not limited to: Harry Potter, Glee, Firefly, Sherlock Holmes, WHITE COLLAR OMG!!, Inkheart Series, House, Fringe I ♥ LIKE BURNING... oh and also family friends, music, books and writing in all forms.

In general, I'm a fangirl of good writing, whether novel, script, fanfic or music. I also love to tell stories, all sorts. I write fanfic and original short stories and novels. - I"m in a complicated relationship with a fictional character.
