probably the best $1.50 I’ve ever spent.

Favorite Author: gdhfgkdgj okay we can go with Madeleine L’Engle, and also Jan Harold Brunvand for influence reasons?
Song: I was about to complain about this being hard, except that “Tam-Lin” exists.
Movie: fhgdfajs uh. well. 10 Things I Hate About You is important and Wings of Desire is important and Pan’s Labyrinth is important and Tangled is important and hilariously Plan 9 From Outer Space is important and mostly my list is weird art films and teen comedies and period films and a handful of suspense thrillers because filmmaking has always been an important part of the language my father and I share.
TV Show: The X-Files, a fact literally no-one knows about me
Band: Over the Rhine
Solo Artist: possibly Vienna Teng?, also Dylan and Guthrie are very important.

Dream Job: as I refuse to tell you my actual dream job (it doesn’t exist and also you will ALL LAUGH AT ME), professional folklorist with a concentration in modern oral traditions and general creepy monster stuff and popular culture (my ideal degree is folklore with minor concentrations in linguistics and psychology), + YA librarian or archivist librarian.
Piercings: earlobes, and I have serious designs towards a nose piercing
Languages: English and once-fluent Sindarin
Reason Behind URL: it’s an archaic word for the full moon; I care a lot about moon motifs and symbolism. also pretty words.

# of Posts: many and also a lot
Why You Joined: followed a friend from Twitter, and around then the Great Livejournal Exodus began in earnest.
First URL: I’ve never changed my url.
# of Blogs: years-abandoned vampire blog; hot people drinking tea blog I obsessed over for two days and then abandoned forever; ballads blog project I never actually commenced with because intimidating; like two saved urls. so… mostly just this one.
