✰ between one heartbeat and the last

i will write in words of fire

we held the weight of the world on our heads and, in our hands, starlight and gold ribbons


Lil(y). Perpetually 29: professional unicorn, actual doctor. Blonde, hazel, pale. Spelling and grammar fiend. Quite short-sighted. Forever gay for Natalie Dormer (hashtag wife goals). Addicted to Spotify and true crime podcasts. Drinks too much tea. Prone to fits of creativity followed by periods of extreme laziness. Photoshop wizard. Best described as a cross between a cat and a peacock.

I work as a project manager and part time hacker developer. In the alternate universe, I'm probably a bookseller.

I read on trains & Sunday afternoons. My favourite books are numerous and arbitrary; I like examples, not genres.

I watch an odd assortment of programs and almost anything by the BBC. I have a terrible habit of rewatching my favourites more often than starting something new. This does not do much to cull my Netflix queue.

I ship indiscriminately. Noel/Julian. Dom/Darlene. Dexter/Debra. Peter/Olivia. Ten/Donna, Eleven/Clara, Twelve/Clara. Willow/Tara, Willow/Oz, Buffy/Giles. Adelle/Topher. Patty/Ellen. Arthur/Morgana. Adam/Ros, Harry/Ruth. Frankie/Cat. Meredith/Derek. Xena/Gabrielle. Kitty/Nan. Peter/Katniss. Felix/Mildmay. Fitz/Fool. Harry/Draco, Harry/Snape, Harry/Luna, Sirius/Remus, Cissy/Bella. Haruka/Michiru. Utena/Anthy. Anna/Josh. Cate/David. Fran/Olivia. I'm not into shipper names, give me that little slash any day.

My ships, squicks and kinks can be found in my fic & fandom FAQ. I also have an FAQ on trigger warnings.

Thank you to gossymer for the S2 layout template and dallowayward for the Doctor Who custom mood theme.
