About Me: I've been writing semi-seriously for almost ten years. Most of my focus has been on young adult and middle grade stories--children's books are what made me fall in love with reading, and even though I've read and loved plenty of adult fiction, I'll always keep coming back to them. 

About My Journal: Not a whole lot of content up yet, but I'm planning to post mostly about books I've read, the shows I've watched, and hopefully my writing process. I've been in a bit of a creative rut for the last couple months and am slowly getting myself unstuck. 

What I Write: Mostly YA and MG, mostly fantasy or horror. I love emotional stories with interesting characters and, usually, some element of creepiness involved. 

What I Don't Write: I'm up to try anything, though you can probably expect most of it to be pretty genre-focused. I'm not all that great at writing more "literary" fiction.

What I Read: You can find a more detailed list over at my journal, but basically anything well-written, especially if it's fantasy, historical fiction, or contemporary. Some of my favorite authors are Megan Whalen Turner, Michael Buckley, S.E. Hinton, and Dorothy Allison. 

What I Don't Read: Not really into erotica. Other than that, I'll try anything! 

Could I Edit Someone Else's Work: Probably not at the moment, just because I don't have enough time. Doesn't mean I wouldn't love to read it! :)

Interests & Hobbies:
Reading (fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction, mysteries, memoirs, romance, middle grade and young adult fiction--pretty much anything that looks interesting); writing, journaling, complicated villains, antiheroes, folklore and urban legends (especially the creepy stuff); podcasts, comics, and movies. When it comes to fandoms I love the MCU (especially Guardians of the Galaxy and the Netflix shows), Pacific Rim, Outlander (the books and the show), Star Wars, DC comics, and a whole bunch of others. I also read and write fanfic (mostly Marvel at the moment, though I'm hoping to expand into other fandoms). 

Looking For:
People who write or read fanfic, people who post about their fandoms, people who post semi-regularly, or, really, anyone who's interested in being friends! I'm a little shy, but I love meeting new people and seeing new posts on my reading page. :)

Queen on the left, knight on the right...that's an interesting set up, Arthur. Also because it needs saying, #DammitTennyson cause I know that's where this comes from and that I am likely not going to be allowed to change it.

Because narrative reasons and worldbuilding reasons, and wow, just someone should do up a poster about the dangers of letting the Arthurian mythologies get their hooks too far into you (esp. at young ages) cause then you'll never be free. Never.

...I'm writing this dayperiod (I have no idea if it's morning or afternoon TBH) can you tell?

Atlas Obscura and The Establishment both have enough links I like that I've taken to giving them subcategories of their own...but then the links tend to really pile up there when I'm not looking.

Tumblr/Goodreads/AO3/etc: I'm secondaccident pretty much everywhere you can think of. Expect for tumblr where you can find me under jimmmynovak (3 M's, obs obs)

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm Finnish Literature Major from Uni of Helsinki and I just graduated, so we're living interesting times since I don't know what to do with myself and my life after 6 years of more or less intense studying. I'm passionate reader and a book-lover. I do cosplay with my partner in crime and I've been doing that for 7 years now, so it's probably not going to change anytime soon. I'm terrible easily addicted to new things and I'm a sucker for all kinds of geeky things. LGBT rights, feminism and all that jazz. I'm pretty liberal in my views; if you're happy and not hurting anyone then I don't care what you are/what you like, it's probably cool by me. 

Top 5 Fandoms
: Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts. These are probably my main ones I keep coming back to over and over again.

I mostly post about: Daily life, what I'm currently stressing/reading/eating/planning/doing/etc. I've never written a journal in English before, so I'm not sure what kind of topics I'll tend to go with this language. But since it's pretty hecking quiet in Finnish side of this site, I'm trying my wings out here as well. I'll probably worry a lot about cosplaying and how I hate my life choices, but hey, it's all in good humor.

I rarely post about: My relationship in terms of sex life or emotional struggles. Politics. I have strong political views, but current state of many things gets me so worked up and mad I feel it's just better not to write about those things after raging about them to all your friends and family.

My last three posts were about: Graduating, what I'm currently reading, money and how I really want to get our balcony to look nice, but how it's difficult when all out windows are facing South and it's like sauna out there and everything died last year, but now we're going to prepare ourselves to this battle with some tough-ass-plants that can survive in the sunlight.

How often do I post?
: I aim for once a week but some times I write more, some times less, I don't know what happens now when I try tackling two languages at once. I'm not stressing myself about this matter, I'll write when I feel like I have something to write about.

How about commenting
?: I comment if I feel like I have something to say. :)

Inspiration & Textures )

Rules:

* Make a rainbow! It works like this:

* Choose five consecutive colors from the color bands in the inspiration section above and make five icons in these five colors

* Each icon has to be primarily in that one color, but not strictly monochrome, as you can tell from the inspiration examples.
* You may (but don't have to) use the textures provided in the middle part of the inspiration section.
* If you can't finish your set, it is okay to enter fewer than five icons, but the colors of the icons you enter still need to be consecutive.
* Please submit your icons (icons and URLs) to this post, all in one comment (if possible).
* Everyone can participate, you don't have to be a member of this community.

* I collect all the icons from the comments and make a result post
* Everyone can leave comments on the inspiration and activity result posts
* There is no voting

Eurovision thoughts: MOLDOVA WAS FUCKING ROBBED.


An incomplete list of stuff I did while away from the internet: art (pencils, oil paint, watercolours), minimal writing (did you know it's hard to write without a computer), swimming (3K IN 1H42!!! record à battre), read a lot (mostly in French --  also I have thoughts), was told that I wasn't an asshole, had my teeth hurt like bloody hell (it's nothing to worry about), saw friends, went on dates, learned some poems and probably spent longer going "OMG I HAVE MUSCLES NOW :D" than I should have, but you know what? I HAVE MUSCLES NOW!  Hell, yesterday I even managed 100 push-ups (in 10 sets of 10, not in one go). I am severely regretting this choice today, but I did.


Between voluntary break, Eurovision and broken computer, I've been away for pretty much a month. WHAT'D I MISS? It can be big stuff, small stuff, I'm sure I've missed a lot.
