Live Journal Meme...Thingy.  
Snagged from rua1412

So, figured it was about time I actually did another meme about me. This seemed like a good as one as any, i'm bored, and we're loosing the Cricket.

Anyway, read on if you want to find out more about me, feel free to steal this meme (i did) but let me know so i can go and read yours. :) xx



How did you come to start your LJ?

Blame leni_ba for that. I was (and still am) on fanfiction.net, but we were talking about the lack of good fiction on that site, and with me making graphics i didn't have anywhere to post them. I had tried LJ a long time ago, but had never gotten into it as i didn't know anyone, or how to start a journal. But with her help i got set up, managed to find a niche and here i am.

How did you find your first friends?

Not sure, i think they found me. *shifty look* :P I know i posted on a few B/A sites, and i think a few people added me from that.

Are those first friends still on your FL?

Yes.

How long have you been on LJ?

Only since December 31 2011.

Do you have more friends or communities on your FL?

I just checked and i have 60 friends and am watching 61 communities. Wow, that worked out well. LOL

Do you do a lot of friends cuts?

I haven't no, and unless someone posts something unbelievable offensive i won't. I only delete communities if they are no longer active.

What do you like in an LJ friend?

Actually i'm a pretty open minded person, and i will add pretty much everyone in the BtVS community even if we don't share the same ships. As long as you don't bash the characters i like i don't see an issue with liking different stuff, keeps it interesting, and i have made some great friends doing this.

If you aren't in the BtVS community then i will add you if we share an interest in making graphics, or i have seen you around in a few graphics/icon/art communities. :)

What do you dislike in an LJ friend?

If you are unable to see another persons pov, or try to force your idea's onto others.

What would make you un-friend someone immediately?

um...i guess if we had an issue. I have never done that yet though, the people on my list are delightfully sane. :P

Have you been caught up in a lot of LJ drama?

Nope, not yet. Give it another 6 months, bound to happen soon :P

Do real-life friends and family members know you have a journal on LJ?

Nope. :)

Do you also have Facebook and if so, what do you prefer – LJ or FB?

Yes i do actually. I created a facebook purely for my fanfiction/fandom obsession. :) I do occasionally post stuff for RL, but i made the account so i could connect with the fandom, and people who read my fanfiction without fear of stalkerish people. My name is Ashes AtMidnight over there https://www.facebook.com/#!/ashes.atmidnight if you want to add me i would love to see you over there, just let me know where you know me from (lj) :D

And i actually like both, they are both so different.

What about Twitter?

Nope. Boooriinnnnng. :P

Do you blog on any other sites?

No. I really like keeping my stuff on only a few places. Easy to keep on track.

How often do you check in on LJ?

At least once a day. Unless i have something on.

What do you rarely or never post about?

Real life.

Why don't you post about that?

I made this journal for graphics and fic, not for a RL journal. If you want to hear about my rants and ravs feel free to add my facebook. LOL

Have you ever thought about deleting your journal?

I only just got it. LOL

Have you ever changed your username?

No.

Why did you choose your current username?

Well i actually wanted Ashes at Midnight to go with my name on Fanfiction.net, but that was taken. What are the odds hey! LOL. So i went with Ashes and then added 1753 ( the year Angel was turned into a vampire) on the end. Eh, seems to work.

If you're looking for new friends, how do you find them?

Just add them from communities i'm a part of.

Are you taking new people on to your Friends List just now?

Always looking for new friends, so yeah. If you know anyone who likes B/A, D/A Spike, Angelus, Drusilla, Illyria or likes making graphics feel free to let me know, just please, not any wierdo's :P

Finally, tell us the reasons why you keep an online journal.

A great place to get to know more people in fandom, a place to post my graphics and another online site to take me away from doing important RL stuff. :D
