New friends  
I've made several new friends in the last couple of weeks, mostly through Smallville activities. *waves* So I thought I'd quickly let you know a little about me. Apart from Smallville, my other main fandom is Battlestar Galactica, though I've been sadly neglecting it recently--that's about to change because season 3 kicks off this week. \o/

I don't often post personal stuff in this LJ, but you can find out a bit more about me here:Ten Things To Know About Me.

Since many of you met me during, Project Smallville: The Countdown, I should tell you that I don't usually post quite so much. ;-)

Mostly I write Smallville episode reviews, Smallville essays and BSG episode reviews. Occasionally, I also post picspam or vid recs!

I also have a Books Filter, as I use this journal to keep track of what I read. To avoid spamming everyone with my thoughts on my weekly reading matter, I post these on a filter. If you wish to be added to the filter, please leave a comment--anyone's welcome! Book chat is good. ;-) (I cut-tag spoilers.)

Apart from that, my fandom activities include betaing, gathering links for the sv_ledger (if you haven't got it friended, why not?!) and obsessive icon gathering and vid watching. *g* And although I am principally an SV fan, I do have many people on my f'list from other fandoms (principally BSG) who I love and adore (and I always feel vaguely guilty for spamming them with SV stuff!).

Other shows I currently watch and enjoy: Doctor Who, House, Ouran, Six Feet Under (still playing catch-up)
Shows I occasionally watch but have a love/hate relationship with: Lost, Supernatural, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes (giving it a go)
Shows I have loved in the past: BtVS, AtS, Star Trek (Voyager is fave), Utena, Northern Exposure, X-Files, Lois and Clark, Band of Brothers

My good habits: If I read or dl anything, I comment, and I also try to respond to comments promptly. You can ask me anything--I prefer honesty and openness, so please don't be shy. And if you want to point out a bad habit that I have, then you are very welcome to! I don't promise to change, but I do promise to listen. I love and encourage meta discussion and random squeeing. :-)
My bad habits: After a year in fandom, I've concluded that I'm a lazy fic reader--please don't take it personally--the lure of my bookshelf is often too much for me. I have grand plans of catching up on all my friends' fic one day... but this may just be a pipedream. Also, I usually ignore rants, not because I don't care but because I prefer to focus on the positive, as fandom is my break from work politics and stress. I'm a spoilerphobe, which I know some people find annoying--but usually everyone's wonderfull about that (thank you all!). I confess I read on filters when I'm very busy, as my real life commitments are extensive--however I read my friends list in full whenever I can, and I make an effort to get to know new friends.

If you want to know anything, please ask; and once again, welcome new friends! I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hee! I loves that icon SO MUCH. Yup, I've cleared my schedule too! And I've also lined up some other kickass tv in the shape of SV and Heroes to kill time before the premiere! I can't wait!!

I didn't know you liked Utena! It was indeed gorgeous and trippy--nothing quite like it! :-)
