| 001| About Me |

Okay, so it took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to write in this space but... I'm Cande, although I also go by my RL name Toni.

I tend to live in a dream world and have too many high standards for the things I want in my life but as of now I'm currently a law student. However my deepest passions lie in art, history, writing and languages. I love the humanities and fangirl everything that comes under it.

This journal however, is more about my occasional run ins with fandom than it is about my life. I am a procrastinator by nature, but I'm working my butt off to change that, and I like to think its working. I used to lurk a lot in fandom but these days my activities include such things as writing fanfic, occasionally drawing and talking people's ears off about my latest discoveries (which could be just about anything mind you).
| 002 | Fandoms |

First off, I think it's only fair that you know I have the attention span of a goldfish and jump between fandoms at the drop of a hat; but I have never left a fandom and I always come back to them. You'll see.

Current: Axis Powers Hetalia (again with the history!kink orz)
In the wings: Bleach, D.Gray-man, Fullmetal Alchemist, Kuroshitsuji, all things Disney/Don Bluth/Dreamworks, Ace Attorney series, BBC's Merlin, Temeraire, Lackadaisy
Having mid-life crises: CLAMP, Kyou Kara Maou, Ouran Highschool Host Club, Diana Wynne Jones, Terry Pratchett, Harry Potter, "Tales of" series, Final Fantasty VIII/IX, Kingdom Hearts, Avatar: The Last Airbender
Older than the hills: Eyeshield 21, Reborn!, The Seventh Tower, Legend of Zelda series, Jak & Daxter, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, One Piece, Pirates of the Caribbean, Good Omens, Legend of Mana, Tamora Pierce, etc, etc.

Shipping: I ship blatantly, I don't deny it (see here). By no means a pairing nazi, though ship wars have admittedly put me off in the past. Some characters are fandom-bicycles, others are monogamous, I juggle them all; het, slash and all that jazz. At the same time I am extremely fond of family bonds and sibling relationships so there is a lot of platonic shipping going on too. Incest is probably the only thing I steer clear of, unless I am poking fun at character relationships. I will do it for the lulz, but never part of a serious plot. Please bear that in mind.
| 003 | Friending Policy

FRIENDS ONLY. I have no problems if you want to friend me, but I'll only friend people I actually know, or who I've talked to before. I'm chronically shy when meeting new people, but once you know me I can assure you I'll never stop talking. I'm quite busy these days and I don't want to clutter up my f-list with posts I'll never read.

I pretty much only lock things like RL and the occasional rant, so 90% of this journal is free game. All of my fanfic/fanart is PUBLIC anyway (see: Links).

I don't really comment or chat that much during university semesters so please don't take that as my not wanting to talk to you anymore.

If you're interested you can still leave a comment here. :)
