Hi! You can call me Tanya. I prefer she/her pronouns, though my appearance is just androgynous enough that I can be mistaken for a guy. My preferred word for my sexuality is sapphic. (I feel like I'm not gay enough to be a lesbian but too gay to be bi, so this is the in between.) If you're wondering about the journal title, Tanya isn't my wallet name. She's my online self, and she's my audience, as far as I'm concerned.

I post a hell of a lot about varied mental health crap behind an f-lock. I write for myself, especially when I write about my beliefs and thought processes. Lately, this journal has been a badly kept record of realizations about my mental processes. I hope all this introspection leads to some changes, no matter how slight.

Posts that aren't quite as personal (see: fannish interests, music, media) are typically posted outside of the f-lock. I don't know how often I post publicly, but there must be enough entries by now to give you a sense of my general style of writing. Journaling? Idk.

I write poetry sometimes. I keep those words at afirelullaby. This tumblr is very sedate and organised.

I also have another tumblr - sapphire2309. This tumblr is a typical tumblr tumblr. It is an emotional rollercoaster and also completely random. Kinda like me.

When the muse strikes, I write fanfiction. My main fandoms right now are Person of Interest and White Collar, though I have written in other fandoms, and posted thoughts about other shows. The best place to browse my fanfic would be at AO3, where I post as sapphire2309. The second best would be the various fandom tags on this journal, which I use only for fanwork and not random fannish thoughts.

My friending policy is fairly random. I add you to my circle if I like what you post. I give you access if I feel like I know you at least a little. I'm not comfortable accepting journal access from someone I haven't given access to, and vice versa. But if we have interests in common, feel free to reach out!

Hi! Thank you for liking some of the same awesome ladies as me. Since we've already covered general likes, dislikes and DNWs in the optional details, let's get straight to the fun stuff, yes?

i ain't demented, hah, well, just a lil bit, huh? )

Today's been spectacularly unproductive, so I think I'll take a hint and go to bed early. Start pushing my wake up time forward, so eventually I can wake up at 5 without kicking and screaming.

don't have enough energy left to write a poem today, sadly. i've been enjoying putting down recurrent thoughts of the day in poetry form.

...maybe i'll take five minutes and put down two lines, idk yet, i'm v sleepy.

my plan for the next howeverlong is starting to sort itself out in my mind.

current mood: prep everything for tomorrow, make to do lists for the next few days, and sleep.

(i really like this mood)

if anyone's curious about the post titles, they tend to be lyrics from a song i'm listening to, typically the song that i put in the current music section below. sometimes they're not. sometimes it's hard to tell if you're not in my brain, but well. that's me.

They have a friending meme going. I filled it out. I was exactly as extra as you'd expect me to be. (My comment is the longest one there right now why do i do this to myself.)

I was rewatching POI 1x06 (aka Zoe's first episode) when I spontaneously combusted from the adorableness of John Reese.

So Harold at one point asks John, "Assuming that [Zoe's] the victim and not the perpetrator, who would want to take her out?" And John responds with, "Who wouldn't?" Except that he's not talking about potential threats, he's talking about taking her out. Like on a date. With food and flowers.

I CANNOT HANDLE THIS HOW DID I ONLY CATCH IT ON THE REWATCH IT IS TOO CUTE.

How A Reader's Feminist Critique Changed My Sci-Fi Novel

Natalie Morales would like you to know nothing about her, except for one thing…

These were delightful reads after an already delightful day.

In random things: I plan on overhauling my DW tagging system very soon. I started as a fic journal, but I post a lot about life now, and those tags need to be sorted so I can find them. Some tags are near identical. Some probably make sense only to me, but well. Feel free to ask if you're curious!

[community profile] fandomgiftbox sign ups close very soon!

Also, my welcome thing's a fkn mess. Must fix.

13. One of your favorite 70's songs

The oldest music I enjoy is from the 90's. I am heckin young.

I'm gonna go with Tare Hain Barati from the movie Virasat (which is from 1997, it's as young as me!). I found it when it was covered by Bhoomi Trivedi on Indian Idol. I recommend Bhoomi's version if you're like me and don't like high female singing voices.

This is a really sweet song which was stuck in my head for weeks after this episode aired. I like it.

The absolute best Shoot vid I've seen thus far, and I've seen plenty. Set to a cover of 99 Problems that I originally found on the Blacklist, to my delight. Features girls with guns and a Shaw + food montage. What's not to love?

There is secondary audio/dialogue layered over the music, in case that's the kind of thing that ticks you off in vids, but IMHO it's handled really well in this vid. It's all so well timed and doesn't clash with the music. It's really well edited.

12. A song from your pre-teen years

Euh. Taylor Swift's entire Fearless album. I was very mainstream when I started listening to English music.

To be fair, this is one of her best albums (barring a few songs), and has some really good music.

11. A song that you never get tired of

...does not exist indefinitely. However, as I've mentioned earlier, occasionally, I latch onto one song that I listen to for days or weeks on end. Familiar has finally been shifted out of its top spot by Can't Kill Us by The Glitch Mob. It's good background music in that it doesn't have lyrics, but also it's interesting enough that when I focus out of something and onto the music, it's not textureless.

10. A song that makes you sad

3WW by alt-J. The song starts at 1:27. Video includes death, a funeral, associated imagery, a character attempting to survive the great outdoors, and wolves.

There's a lot of layers to this song, and in the end, it's not a positive take on a love story, or on love in general. But it is beautiful and oddly soothing.
