chelseagirl: Alice -- Tenniel (Alice)
I love LJ, but it seems like I keep in touch with most of my LJ friends more on Facebook these days. (Along with my relatives, my work friends, everyone I ever went to high school with, etc. etc.) I'd love to have a more active f-list over here again!

I'm terrible at coding and can't seem to get the link right, but it's at [ profile] teragramm

Some things about me:

I live in NYC, and I teach English at the university level.

I'm an American married to a Brit. We have cats.

I mostly post about real life things here nowadays. I'd love to talk about fannish things, but there doesn't seem to be the critical mass for whatever I'm into . . . I'd love to see that happening her again, especially because Tumblr is terrible for conversations.

Favorite tv show of all time is Buffy. Other long-time loves include Angel, Farscape, Veronica Mars, and Life on Mars. (I apparently like shows that end in Mars.) I adore Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, both the book (which I've read three times so far) and the miniseries.

Current fandoms are Agent Carter and Jessica Jones. I follow the MCU generally, but those are the only aspects I'd call myself fannish about (Well, and Peggy pops up pretty frequently elsewhere in the MCU, so . . . )

I also watch The Walking Dead, iZombie, Doctor Who, Daredevil, Supergirl, Game of Thrones, Penny Dreadful, and Black Sails, and I desperately hope for another season of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. (Wow. It sounds like I watch a lot of tv!) I have developed something of a passion for British shows set in and after-but-still-impacted-by WWII (1940s-1950s): Foyle's War, Bomb Girls (ok, that one's Canadian), The Bletchley Circle, The Hour, Call the Midwife, Grantchester.

Peggy Carter is my fashion role model; 40s styles work really well in a modern context.

I'm mostly interested in female characters.

It's rare that I write fanfic anymore, but I have been participating in Yuletide for the past three years, and plan to continue to do so, even though the deadline is always in the middle of grading final papers!

I was devastated when David Bowie and Alan Rickman died so close together because they are two of my all-time favorites.
