sohotrightnow: Buffy Summers, hands on her hips, smiling and looking satisfied. ([buffy] darkness is a harsh term)
Hello there, people from [personal profile] st_aurafina's friending meme! Let's see, basic intro-type stuff.

I'm in my early 30s, bisexual, cis and female. I'm a Reform Jew, and converted several years back. I live in the greater Washington D.C. area, where I was born and raised. I work for a large firm doing various web site stuff (I'm not being vague about it because it's particularly sensitive but because, while I like it just fine, it's not particularly interesting and I'm very much a believer in leaving work at work).

I'm currently living in my childhood home, where I moved while my father was stationed overseas for a couple of years so he and Mom needed someone to house-sit. Once they got back, I wanted to finish paying off a credit card I'd had to put a couple of root canals on. It's been a year or so, but now I pay the Verizon bill and a share of the grocery costs, which, even with the premium cable package, still works out to much less than I'd be paying in rent without, like, eight other roommates anywhere else in the area. (Also, not gonna lie, since entering the workforce in autumn of 2008 means I don't really have much faith in my 401(k) to be there when it's actually time for me to retire, and heaven knows what the Trump administration + GOP Congress will do to the social safety net, I like being able to sock away some other savings.) We have four cats, all of whom are delightful. I'm the oldest of three children, and my siblings are also still local; my younger sister was married last year and she and my brother-in-law are now expecting their first child, which I'm very excited about. My younger brother has severe hemophilia, so you might hear me venting about health care policy and health insurance, as it's always been something of pretty personal importance to my family.

I've been in online fandom of some kind since I was...hahahaha oh man, I think I must've been 11? My introduction to fanfic was on alt.tv.x-files.creative, to give you an idea. My mother has been a Trekkie since the very first episode of TOS, and Star Trek conventions are among my earliest memories. I'm very multifannish, but things generally need to contain a few characters who aren't white dudes to hold my attention for any amount of time. I'm a sucker for space opera, and have developed a romance novel habit in the past couple of years (mostly historicals and sci-fi/fantasy; contemporary tends to leave me cold). A few years ago, my mother made me play Mass Effect, and now I have a gaming PC that I built myself??? I'm still not totally sure how that happened.

My fic is here, and I'm trying to get back into the habit of writing this year.

I like to binge-watch things on Netflix while embroidering and doing my nails, preferably with a glass of something alcoholic close at hand. Green is my favorite color, Bruce Springsteen gives me lots of feelings, and I love terrible puns and bad jokes.

(Edited to add a little more personal detail!)
