Please fill out this survey so I can get to know you better. Old friends, fill it out too! Even if I know you well, I may find out something about you I never knew. Feel free to spread this around so we can all get to know each other. If there is a question you don't want to or don't know how to answer, just tell me something else instead.
Preferred gender pronoun: She/her
Birthday: March 5th
Where do you live and/or time zone: San Francisco
What are you studying/What are you working as: I'm an academic librarian. As such, I'm learning something pretty much every day of my life.
What makes you happy/hobbies: Things I love include writing, reading, singing, fandom, travel, and cats.
An interesting fact about you: I grew up in very small towns in Ohio and Iowa. Until I moved to California as a teenager, the largest town I'd lived in was only 1000 people. I've lived in towns with fewer residents than the building where I currently live.
Are you in love/have a crush at the moment: I've been partnered with T for over 12 years now. We've had the usual bumps and bruises along the way, but basically solid from almost the day we met. I do get crushes from time to time but never feel the urge to act on them. Monogamy works well for me.
Favorite place to be: Do I have to pick one? At home, almost anywhere in SF, friends' houses, New York City, Bryn Mawr College... But usually the company is more important than the place.
A word to describe yourself: Sympathetic
Favorite Fandom(s): I'm currently most active in Dragon Age and Final Fantasy XII, with a nod to Final Fantasy X/X-2 for being my original fandom and still well-loved, even if I'm not as active lately. My current obsession is The Avengers movieverse; we'll see how long that one sticks around.
OTP/OT3: Paine/Nooj, Ashe/Balthier, Al-Cid/Ashe/Balthier, Alistair/Warden (especially Alistair/Aeducan), Mage F!Hawke/Fenris, Anders/Hawke, Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter, Marcus Cole/Susan Ivanova.
Celebrities you flail over: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Hugh Jackman, Meryl Streep
Favorite music: It's almost shorter to write what music I don't like! But my all time favorite band is They Might Be Giants.
One thing you like about LJ/DW: The community! I have met so many wonderful friends here.
Two things you like about yourself: That I am a good listener and able to see all sides of almost any question.
What House in Hogwarts are you in/would you be in: I think I am most like a Hufflepuff in spirit, but when I was of the age to be sorted into a House I expect I would have ended up in Ravenclaw.
