LJ Interests meme results
My school... or, my ex-school, to which I shall return next year. Honestly, I'm glad to be rid of it for now.
I <3 Darwin, for the brilliance that inspired my hero E. O. Wilson. Plus, millions of amphibians couldn't be wrong!
Girl on girl fanfic action -- mmmmm. This term is typically used with Harry Potter, of the delicious Hermione/Ginny variety, plus a number of less common pairings, shall we say. (KittyHawk, anyone?)
I like to make icons, although I haven't been doing so much of that lately due to the computer issues and the moves and such stuff. Anyways, it's a fun expression of creativity that requires less time and content than a full layout... icondom is no fun though.
Whoo! So not for old ladies, although the whole stich n' bitch thing is kind of silly too. I just learned to cable knit, and I want to learn intarsia or stranding next.
- manipulative women:
I have such a soft spot for manipulative women... evil, manipulative women... are so very hot. Melisande in KL takes #1 of course, followed by Ari Emory in Cyteen, and Mrs. Coulter in HDM, and evil Xena, and Rachel Weisz's characters in Runaway Jury (before she turned good) and the Shape of Things, and... ohh, manipulative women, so hot.
- pawn to queen:
Oh, the love-it-or-hate-it fanfic. Did I mention strega under 'manipulative women'? I should have. I have mixed feelings about the fic, but I'll always be grateful to Riley for introducing me to my favorite book ever--Cyteen, by C.J. Cherryh. (See Ari Emory, above.)
I like sleep. Sleep doesn't like me. Insomnia runs in my family, so a good sleep is always well appreciated.
- the golden compass:
Excellent book. Go read it, now! My perceptions of it have changed quite a bit, thanks to Professor Flesch, but I still adore the story. (Even if Pullman did write nasty things about my precious Narnia...)
Winter, a lovely season, not quite as beautiful here as Autumn I don't think, but snow and cold is good for my soul. I'm about ready for some chilly 10 degree weather and snowflakes everywhere. Mm.

I've given up on writing all-encompassing first entries for new journals, so I thought I'd begin this one by answering the question everyone always asks: why anwyn?
Well. I'd like to say first that it is not
"my" name, neither in the birth certificate nor any other significant sense. I more-or-less selected it because a) it sounded pretty, and sounded like anna, which is a name i've always loved; b) it resembles "annwyn" which figures into a lot of the music of my favorite band, Faith & the Muse, and c) because it was available, something that's getting rarer on LJ as time goes on.
Just for the record, it is not a magical name, it does not come from the Mists of Avalon (although I do love that book), and I do not envision myself as some sort of reborn celtic faerie princess.
Now that that's established, I thought it might be amusing to list all of my past LJs... all the ones I can remember. I'm sure there are more:
sexwithsatan (I kind of wish I still had this one >.>)
uncaged (thanks to belu
for reminding me of this one)
Yes, I am a livejournal fiend. Mwahaha.
Check out my new LJ layout! It's sweet!
