hello, friend!

Oh wow, if you're wondering who this random ghost is who's suddenly appeared, it wouldn't be surprising - the last time I wrote a journal entry here was 7 years ago (where does time go? because I certainly have no flipping idea)

Anyway, hello again! I'm Desiree and I've mainly been pottering around collecting new fandoms, flailing on How To Adult IRL and occasionally posting art on Tumblr/Twitter/Instagram for the past few years. I recently got hit with a pang of nostalgia and realised how much life went undocumented without these journal entries, and want to get back into semi-regularly writing again.

I'm also keen to dip my toes into Dreamwidth dev (webdev being my day job now, go figure) in the near future, and figured it would be useful to reacquaint myself with all the things :)

I would love to reconnect with anyone who's still hanging around (old friends and new!), so please do say hi or drop a comment with whatever you're into right now! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I love that "performative SJ" term! I think you hit the nail on the head, really: it is all of the stuff we used to see with ship wars and character bashing but cloaked in some odd idea that everything we consume has to correlate with how we act and believe in real life, which is crazy. Isn't a key point of fandom being a vicarious escape from RL? sigh I'm so glad I'm not the only internet granny around who finds this weird and tiresome!

How is High Castle going? The love triangle dismantles itself fast in S2, don't worry. I'd love to hear your perspective on the Pacific States plot(s) because I am really clueless about Imperial Japan in terms of customs and history and stuff. The tumblr blog I was thinking of was "joexjuliana" which has lots of gifs and if John Smith is more your historical aesthetic then "madamgrandadmiral" and "frederiksewell" are both great blogs.
