Dear livejournal, this is an introduction. I will try to keep it brief, and void of any self-judgement.

My name is unimportant, as is my age though I will tell you I'm an undergrad in a small town in England.

Why am I here? For three reasons. Firstly, to take part (at least for the time being) in the community aspect of livejournal; supporting friends and seeking guidance. This is no longer the case as I have neither the time nor the energy. I'm happy to take part but can't make any commitment to a friendship in the usual sense. I really want to be able to, but after years of trying I realise I just can't make internet relationships last. It's fine, others can, I just don't want to let people down because that sucks, :)

Secondly, fandoms. As long as I’ve been on the internet I have been involved in fandoms. Though some are temporary and some permanent, livejournal is the best forum to take part. I have been/am involved in Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Mighty Boosh, Merlin... even UK politics (yes, really).

And thirdly, for the various icon/banner/image/design/photography/visual communities and journals here. Pictures of old books with lavender, and long-haired nymphs with silk shawls are currently my valium.

I hope you don’t hate me for my ego-centricism, and that you won’t hate me when I leave again which I inevitably will.

I would offer to let you follow me to the various other venues across the internet which I inhabit, but the reason I created this blog with a username I use only here is to keep some sliver if privacy, anonymity, solitude and freedom.
