My journal is now friends only. My entries that only have to do with fandom are open to the public. All other entries (my real life entries) are friends only. But I'd love to get to know you and I'd love for you to get to know me.

Commenting on here before friending would be nice, but not necessary. There's about 99% chance that I'll add you back.
I am:
Danae. 24. Female. Whovian. Chronic melancholic. Hopeless romantic. Panda obsessed. Dreamer. Lover of non-canon ships. Copy editor. Grammar nerd. Coffee addict. Soulmates with Iceland. Landlocked. Misser of oceans.

Current obsessions:
Doctor Who. Merlin. The Flash. Brooklyn Nine-Nine. New Girl. Supernatural. Sherlock. Teen Wolf. The Social Network. Elementary. Suits.

Quick update because work, but I have to flail about something for a bit.

I met this guy (Ben) on Tinder, and in a lot of aspects, he's everything I want in a guy. He's super sexy (he works out a lot and he has huge muscles and it's so hot, but he also has a cute face and great facial hair), but he's also really intelligent and sensitive.

And he's also a huge nerd. We're literally talking about writing fanfiction together. And he plays League of Legends and other things.

Hot, nerdy guys will forever be my downfall. They're like puzzles I need to figure out.

That's it for now. Also, the photo above is from my mountain adventure a few weeks ago. I'll probably post more photos later. Took a lot.

It's been ages and I feel bad so here have a pretty picture from a cave adventure I had yesterday. (It's a cloud arrowhead in a cave called Indian Tunnel!) Anyway, I don't really have an update (my job still kind of sucks and I still have an unnamed ~thing~ with Eric), but I just thought I'd let you know I'm alive while I go attempt to get caught up with all you beautiful people on my flist. <3

Hey, lovelies. :) It's been what feels like a hundred years since I've been on here. Life got real crazy pretty quickly and stayed that way for a while. Here are some highlights.

• I graduated college! After five years, I finally got my BJ (Bachelor of Journalism Lololol). I've been applying for jobs for months and have had several interviews and turned down two jobs because they weren't quite right, which is really weird for a recent college graduate in a supposedly dying field. However, I am up for a job in Washington state that I would take in a heartbeat. Until then, I'm just hanging out in Nebraska, procrastinating on packing.

• Since graduating two weeks ago, I've actually gotten to read for the first time in ages. Books I've read: "The Night Gardener," "West of the Moon," "Divergent" and "Insurgent," "Looking for Alaska." Honestly, I'd recommend any of these. To the point that I'd be willing to pass them on if anyone is interested.

• I'm seeing a boy ... and it's complicated. There's this bar in town that does dollar beers on Tuesdays. I was there one Tuesday, standing out by the fire pit when this guy comes up to me and starts talking. He was super cute and nice, so I gave my number to him. And we started texting and made a date, which I nearly bailed on because dates with guys you meet at bars rarely work out and because I wanted to go home and cuddle with my cats. But I went, and damn I'm glad I did. I REALLY like him. He's a meteorology graduate student, and he's super nerdy but still really cute. And tall. So tall. His name is Eric, and honestly we're pretty perfect for each other. He met my best friend Sarah last night and it was awesome. She liked him a lot. And we slept of her couch together because we're really adorable. But. Here's the complicated part. I graduated. I'm going to move away. And he just accepted a job in Texas. So we see each other nearly every day, but there's no point in having the "are we dating?" talk because let's face it. We're not going to date long distance. We've only known each other for two months. And because Eric and I haven't had that talk, I'm still talking with Adam. Because I'm a dumbass.

• I lost my cat Toby. I have no idea how he got out. When I left my apartment, he was asleep in the bed. When I came back, he was gone. That was three weeks ago. I keep hoping that the Doctor just borrowed him and he'll show back up.

Anyway. Hope you guys are doing well. LJ is usually pretty dead in the summer, but I'll be thinking of you all as I look at your not-updated journals. <3

Stolen fro currentscarryou.

This is a sad attempt at getting back on LJ. Hopefully it will work this time.

That awkward moment when I post something on Tumblr about how I don't understand One Direction and then a popular One Direction blog starts following me.

What is life. I can't even.

I'm awful, I know. It's been ages since I've been here. But I must admit, my absence is almost entirely the fault of BBC. First, I watched all of Sherlock, then all of Doctor Who and yesterday I just finished Merlin. Basically, I have no life. None. And that's ok. And what has happened in real life hasn't been great. There's so much to tell and I have no motivation to tell any of it. Which is probably good for you.

Anyway. I'm kind of back now, but I've been inhaling massive amounts of fanfiction. Speaking of fanfiction, if anyone has any good recs for Sherlock, Doctor Who or Merlin, it would be greatly appreciated.

That's all.

Random thought of the day:
What if even though a rare few of us are colorblind, we all see colors in different ways? Say that the way I see red is the same way you see purple. But because we have always known those specific colors to be named like that, we all call them the same name even though they look completely different to all of us. Does that make sense? (It does in my head.)

Also, how do you describe colors, really?

My happily ever after would be this:

I'd be working for a small newspaper in a small, coastal city, preferably in Oregon. I would be married with three kids and I'd live in a sea cottage with a white picket fence and I could walk to the beach every single day and feel the sea breeze in my hair and the sand between my toes and hear the waves crashing the shore. I'd hold hands with my husband and maybe hold a baby in my arms while the other kids walk up ahead, flying a kite or chasing after a dog.

Maybe then we'd go to the local farmer's market and get some fresh fruit and listen to local music and we'd stop and get some coffee and stop by the local bookstore on the way home.

Then we'd come home and make dinner and we'd all sit around the table and share some laughs.

And then I would read the kids a bedtime story and then curl up in the arms of the man I love. 

What is your version of happily ever after?
