badrowboatcop asked:

6, 7, and 10. :]

6. Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?

No, actually! I think some fanon, especially for les pairings, can be pacifying or twee. But I’m able to retain my own understanding of the pair in question.

7. Asked and answered!

10. Any fandom I’m ashamed of being in?

Nope. Though occasionally:

but I think that’s a part of this fandom’s collective consciousness

longroadstonowhere asked:

odd numbers (and you can pick any/all for number five)

Most if not all of these are going to be Homestuck, because it’s the only fandom I enthusiastically participate in. I just realized I lost my superhero comics fandom membership card at least a year ago, and can no longer present it at the door.

tea-tubes asked:

Once you get this you must share 5 random facts about yourself and pass it on to 10 of your favourite followers!

Okkkk I won’t pass it along but I will answer the questions! Thank you for the implied compliment!

1) I have 4 side blogs, not including this one: an inspiration blog, a nsfw blog, a blog for my thesis, and a blog where I post private text posts nobody but me and people who check to see if that url is taken will ever see

2) One of the things that helped me come out to myself at age 19 was a mad crush on one of my professors, and I have absolutely no regrets because she kicks ass. On that day I learned I have excellent taste, if not the worst gaydar and a regrettable tendency to fall for unavailable women

3) I am- at least- a 4th generation American. I appear v. Nordic and also German because that is what most of my lineage is (also some Scottish and Ukrainian Jewish). But all this ancestry is mostly just a conversation piece given my fully assimilated white American cultural identity. One of the only things that remain of, for example, my Dutch background, is me and my mother’s love of blue cheese.

4) I was raised Protestant and boy, have I defected
