Well, well, well. I've had this journal for years now, through many major changes in my life, and I just realized that my profile had been the same since I first got my journal lo those many years ago. So if you know me, I'm updating. If you are viewing this for the first time, hi! and ignore the above.

Anyway. I'm Elizabeth. I used to live in the City of Sin, although as a married mom, I didn't see that side of Las Vegas very often. Now I'm in Indiana, just northeast of Indianapolis, attending law school and enjoying nearby parental figures. I'm a San Diego State University grad, class of '04, and I also went to high school and junior high in SD, as you can see in that nifty little feature that lists my schools. I occasionally write for fun and hopefully, eventually for profit.

I'm a fangirl of various geeky things, among them Harry Potter, Monster High, Hamilton, and so many other things. I'm a voracious reader, and I dig all things dark and spooky. I'm also a movie buff and a sucker for celebrity gossip. I've been known to write and draw, although having little man has eaten into my hobby time.

And that's me.

My journal is by and large under friends-lock, not for any elitist reasons, but mostly because I do talk about my husband and my son quite a bit, and don't like to put all that out there for all and sundry to see. If you want to friend me, by all means do so, and I'll likely do the same.

Some of you may have met me through parenting comms, book comms, ONTD, what have you. I don't keep a separate fannish journal. Things you should know about my journal before you add me:

I am currently in school. I talk about it quite a bit and while I try to avoid legalese and whatnot, I apologize in advance if it's boring.

I also talk a fair bit about my family. I don't detail every moment of my kid's day or anything, but he's a pretty big part of my life and accordingly he does get mentioned pretty often.

I have been part of the Harry Potter fandom since about 2000 (right after Goblet of Fire was released). I write fan fic and have played in several RPGs. I talk about this stuff sometimes. I don't usually post fic in this journal, but I will link to it and I do talk about the process as I write. I also usually link to fests I'm participating in.

My fanfic is collected at my Dreamwidth account here; it is not f-locked and is available for perusal and concrit, should anyone feel so inclined. I also have an account at Archive of Our Own, as well, though that doesn't include any Monster High fic.

The RPGs I've participated in are:
seen_unforeseen (Zacharias Smith, Sebastian Capper, Vincent Crabbe)
this_is_now (Lavender Brown)
nothing_goldrpg (Fenrir Greyback, Charlie Weasley)
tempus_flux (Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Charlie Weasley, Ron Weasley, Susan Bones)
waking_pandora (Zacharias Smith, Sanguini, Charlie Weasley, Ron Weasley, Mandy Brocklehurst, Alecto Carrow)
shrouded_order (Draco Malfoy, Sanguini, Penelope Clearwater)
dark_twist (Pansy Parkinson, Ron Weasley, Zacharias Smith, Charlie Weasley)

I'm currently taking a break from RP and trying to concentrate on school and writing (though I absolutely consider RP to be exercises in characterization, writing, and plotting).

Finally, I discovered Monster High a few years ago and fell in love with it. I collect the dolls, and I do talk about that and post pictures from time to time, though I keep that mostly to my tumblr these days.

All of these things will be tagged, have LJ cuts, and so on. I just like to warn non-fandom people that my journal does have these elements, so they can choose which entries they want to scroll past, or if my journal is worth following at all.
