"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty, I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."
-- C. S. Lewis, 1966
Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in any truth that is taught in life.
-- Friedrich Schiller
Things you might want to know about me: I’m a woman, I’m over 18, I’m a fan and this journal is mostly about fannish things, I read and write fanfiction, I love books, movies, TV and music, I own cats and I love cooking. So all of these things may pop up in posts once in a while to different degrees. Fannish stuff is probably going to remain the main focus though.
I’m also pretty multi-fannish (so expect me to talk about whatever is foremost on my mind at the moment). Most of my posts are public, but there might be the occasional locked post about things that are related to my private life. I’m always happy to meet new people. If I've friended you it's probably because I like to read your public entries/fanfiction/meta/ fanworks or just think you are interesting. :)
My icons probably give you a good idea of what/who I like in those fandoms and my profile and my tags are probably also a good way to find out about my likes and what I post about.
I am a shipper and have some favorite ships, like Doctor/Jack, Steve/Tony, Katniss/Peeta, Superman/Batman, Dick/Tim and Nyssa/Sara, but I'm very multi-shippy on the whole so other ships might also pop up in my fanworks, whenever a story idea comes to me.
Blanket Permission: In case you want to base fanwork (like podfic, fanart, vids, remixes or whatever you come up with) on one of my fanfics, you don’t have to ask me for permission. The only thing I ask is that you link back to the story that inspired you (on lj, dw or Ao3) and credit me as navaan. If you send me a link, I’ll be happy to link to it.
I have nothing against translations, but I would like to know about them, so please send me a link at least (you don't even have to include text in you message or comment if you're anxious) or post on the Archive of Our Own and use the related work system. Thank you.
However, I ask that archiving of my fanworks on other sites doesn't happen without my permission.
