90% public, 10% friends only


I'm polyfanamourous: An incredibly long list of my fandoms is here ; particular favourites include The Borgias, Da Vinci's Demons, Firefly, Legend of the Seeker, Revenge, V, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Librarians.

All of my fanworks and most of my entries, including some original fic pieces are public. F-locked are more personal posts, and occasional discussions on things such as sexuality, as well as some original fic pieces - read more about my original fic filter here.
My interests include reading, television and film, media representation, fanfiction and fandom, mythology and folklore, historical fantasy, eclectic paganism, wine, walking, pets, digital photography, and I dabble in baking, cross-stitch and knitting. I'm asexual and childfree and blog about those subjects.
If you're homophobic, or hate slash, or think asexuality isn't real, or hate fanfic, then we are not going to get along.

Currently: Adding, if we seem compatible.

A few photos taken in and around Sheldon Country Park and Old Rectory Farm:

"Sheldon Country Park covers an area of just over 300 acres, comprising open grassland, wetlands, old hedgerows and some mature woodland. Situated on the very edge of the city, the land has escaped development and has become a haven for wildlife.
The Parks Ranger Service is based at Old Rectory Farm, a 17th Century dairy farm, which is situated on the main entrance to the park.
The farm has historic importance, having been the home of Sheldon's most celebrated son, Thomas Bray, from 1690 to 1721.
Old Rectory Farm has been fully restored and operates as a demonstration farm, showing city dwellers traditional methods of farming. Animals kept at the farm include Jersey cattle, pigs, goats, ponies, ducks, chickens and geese." Source: Sheldon Country Park

The park includes a viewing area of Birmingham International Airport, a playground, and plenty of space to picnic.
Thomas Bray "was an English clergyman and abolitionist who helped formally establish the Church of England in Maryland" Source: Thomas Bray

One image was taken at the lake at Babbs Mill Local Nature Reserve.

"Babbs Mill Park was created in 1977 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II. A haven for wildlife, it was recognised as a Local Nature Reserve in 2002.
Complete with lake, the meandering River Cole, wildflower grasslands and woodland, Babbs Mill LNR is a wonderful space for us all to get in touch with nature. A natural habitat for owls and a protected area for bats, it is a diverse habitat well deserving of its Local Nature Reserve status. " Source: Babbs Mill Local Nature Reserve

It is a pity then that the council is seeking to remove the Local Nature Reserve Status in order to build 52 luxury houses on this precious nature spot. Source: Petition to save Babbs Mill's Local Nature Reserve (LNR) status and Action for Babbs Mill

Lammas occurs on the first or second of August. It is also celebrated as Lughnasadh. It is believed that Lammas comes from the Saxon phrase hlaf maesse, or "loaf mass."

Lammas is primarily a wheat harvest. It is a cross quarter day, falling between the midsummer solstice of Litha and the autumnal equinox of Mabon.
