Hi random people!  
Oh wow, I haven't updated this in quite a while. So, apologies to anyone that enjoyed my 2 page rant on Doctor Who, but here's the new intro.

I'm Circe. I'm kind of a goth, sort of an environmentalist, completely a feminist, pretty much a liberal, etc. etc. etc. I live in a big city having various adventures and whatnot. I like to dance. Also, pie. Tumblr is great and all, but I prefer the increased interaction you get from journaling (or at least used to!)

This is mostly my fandom, but also my everything else away from, RL journal, so I can babble without hurting anyone's feelings and indulge in fannishness without having to explain myself. I've been in fandom for 1000 years, read fanfic like it's my job, love fanvids, and ocassionally post photoshop manips. Other interests that may crop up here are goth/industrial/synth music, photoshoppery, bpal perfume oils, feminism/gender issues, cosplay and fencing.

My main fandom loved are: Doctor Who (classic & RTD), Big Finish, Labyrinth, Elementary, X-Men, BtVS/AtS, Harry Potter, Syfy Alice, Trek, PoTC, Utena, Star Wars, Agent Carter, Brooklyn 99, Mad Max: Fury Road, Orphan Black, Zootopia, Riverdale
My current fandom obsession is: Riverdale

I'm in fandom for the ladies- all of my fandoms have to have at least one strong female protagonist as a central character, though the more the better! I also require this of the fic I read- the real world is androcentric enough for me, thanks. :P I also get enough gloom and doom in the real world, so I prefer things with minimal angst.

Anyone's welcome to friend me (especially if we have shared interests!), though if you want me to friend you back, please leave me a comment telling me why you've friended me just so I know where you came from! :) It's (mostly) unlocked and isn't edited for the public so I may come across as crazy, obsessive, repetitive, anxious/depressed, and also incredibly boring. So if you're here cause I commented on something of yours, sorry for the weirdness. I'm not *quite* as crazy as I seem.

For both our sakes though, I should say we probably won't get along if you're very socially conservative, don't see a problem with character bashing (not concrit) or hating on women characters (and/or positioning them as evil romantic rivals for your fave ship), think slash is cool yet think femmeslash is icky (same goes for the slash=edgy/het=stupid school of thought), love steven moffatt, are anti-science, are anti psych medication (for everyone), or are mostly interested in dude characters or all dude ships.

Friended you due to the super-fantastic Jealous!Ten fic list you left at Lost & Found.Think we have similar [pr0n] interests.

...and friended back. Yay for Jealous!Ten and pr0n! :)

Awesomesauce! Glad you liked them- friended back! :)

Hi, I just came across your journal completely by accident *cough* definitely not via any ten/ten slash pics *cough* but it seems we have similar interests and I have nobody to squee with about doctor who on my friends list at the moment (and also, need MOAR angry feminists) and OMG can I steal your list of people I would definitely not get on with?

And now I sound insane. But never mind.

And I've also just realised I have reading fail since you said you're not interested in current series DW. But you still sound like someone I'd get on with so the add stands, unless I now sound weird.

I'm new to the Doctor Who fandom, and found you through someone else's journal. I added you because I LOVELOVELOVE your Rose/Nine icons <3

Great work!

Aww, thank you. Nine/Rose is pretty awesome. Added back!

Yay new friends! :) Friended back. I feel like all interactions on LJ have an element of stalker-y ness to them, so it's all good.

And I'm always pleased to meet more people for whom "but he's a good writer" doesn't trump "but he's a misogynistic asshat and you can see it in the writing".

I friended you because I read your Hi Random People Post and then I had to check and make sure that I didn't write your Hi Random People post. Lol. It's like you stole all the thoughts out of my brain! o.O!

P.S. It makes me so happy to read a post that recognizes Moffat's rampant mysogony and asshole douchebaggery and doesn't compare Moffat to God. It's ridiculous how far up his ass people on Tumblr are. I think I need to just stay away from there actually...it makes me feel violent and depressed. Not a good combo. :)
P.P.S. The only person in my family who kept watching after S4...is my 16 year old, hormonal, teenage sister - she thinks the new Doctor is a "total hottie". Mum & Dad just roll their eyes and change the channel. Grandmum wants to know why BBC replaced Doctor Who with the "odd comedies with all the Gingers" - course in her defense she doesn't speak English all that well. :D

Yeah, pretty much every time he opens his mouth I cringe...

Friended back. :)

Friended you because you're an all Doctors/Rose lover who doesn't worship the ground Moffat walks on, and you make the awesomest Doctor/Rose manips ever♥!
Circe: manic Roseredcirce on May 18th, 2012 05:18 am (UTC)
Yay, thanks and friended back! :)

We've rambled sufficiently elsewhere that I stopped by. ;-)

I was called intolerant by my mom about 15 years ago, so I'm hoping I've reformed by now.

And, I find point 4 confusing.
Circe: Donna: nobleredcirce on August 20th, 2012 04:42 am (UTC)
Friended back!

Sorry that your mom called you that- I hope it was undeserved?

Which point is point 4?

I used your art
I saw that you did allow some manipulations, as long as you were notified and credited... But I couldn't find how to contact you. So sending it here.

This is where it was used, and thank you for your wonderful art.

Re: I used your art
Oh, that's lovely! Thank you for crediting me and thank you for pointing me to the link!

Hello. I've added you to my friend list because of your Doctor Who fics - and yeah I have to agree with you that the direction Who is going since the departure of RTD is disappointing. Fortunately for all of us there is a strong fanfic base and we are pretty good at keeping ourselves entertained. I finally got around to watching Seasons 2 -4 just recently - I had a 6 year mourning period when they killed off CE. Just turned off Who and said "oh I just don't think so". I did enjoy Tennant's tenure but for me, the real magic was Season 1.
Circeredcirce on September 5th, 2013 06:05 am (UTC)
Sorry, I somehow missed this comment. I've added you back, but I've actually never written any fic, so I'm not sure if you confused me with someone else?
cyclotomic_72cyclotomic_72 on April 29th, 2013 12:36 pm (UTC)
Hey, I justed added you as a friend so that I could see the tencest manip you recently referred to in a ten_plus_ten post. No need to add me back. I'm too lazy to post much of anything. :-)

P.S. I really like your intro post. I don't think our fannish interests have a lot of overlap, but I like your philosophy, (and I really love me some tencest!)
Circe: Cloen foursomeredcirce on September 5th, 2013 06:03 am (UTC)
Belatedly added back! Yay for Tencest!

I found you in the friends meme
