This journal is Friends Only. If you wish to be added, comment here and tell me why, then add me to your own f-list. It's not a big deal - I just like knowing who is reading my stuff.

If you're looking for my fanfiction and famixes, check out my writing journal skye_white. My icons are found at mousai_melete. You can also follow me on Twitter @Sanalith and on Tumblr!

Wife. Daughter. Trekkie. Writer. Bibliophile. Dreamer. Historian. Geek.

That's me in a nutshell, but I recently realized I've friended a whole ton of people since the last time I updated my introduction post, and some of you may want to know a little bit more than that. Feel free to skip if things like this bore you, but at least now you can't claim I never told you anything about me! =P

As always, please feel free to ask questions if you'd like more information!

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you...Collapse )

Yes, that's a lot of S's (and a random A thrown in for good measure!) Ah well!

Anyway, this is just to keep all of my stamps/awards together, and I figured I'd leave it public because it does tell a bit about my personality.

I had so much fun with this last year that I decided to try again!

I need you guys to give me fic prompts for wishlist_fic, which is a multi-fandom Christmas fanfiction fest. I need 12 prompts total, and I'll accept the first 12 I'm given. All I need from you are characters or a pairing, a fandom, and some sort of prompt. You can be as vague or specific as you like. Give me a scenario, a quote, a lyric, an image - whatever you like! To help you out, below the cut is a list of some of my fandoms with my character/pairing preferences.

Fandom InfoCollapse )

If you know for a fact I like another fandom, feel free to prompt me from there too! (The only exception is Star Trek. I won't write fic for that.) And don't feel completely restrained by the characters/pairings I listed here. They're what I'm best at, but depending on your request, I might be able to give it a shot.

Please note that the highest I can go in ratings is PG-13ish. I can't do violence or blood/gore, and (unfortunately) I have yet to master the art of smut. All fics will be at least 500 words.

If you comment anonymously, please leave some sort of name/title/designation/whatever so I can credit you!

Thanks so much! :D

It's that time of year again! If you'd like a holiday card, please comment with your name, address, and if you have a card preference. (I currently have Christmas and general holiday/winter, but if you celebrate something else specifically, let me know and I'll see what I can do!) I'm willing to send anywhere in the world, but please write your address exactly the way it should appear on the envelope so that I know it will reach you. Likewise, feel free to use an alias if you'd prefer I not know your real name, but some sort of "first" and "last" name seems to be needed. (I tried sending a card with just someone's username and it was returned XD) If you'd rather have an e-card, I just need an email address!

Please comment even if I've sent you a card in the past, simply because it's easier to ensure my addresses are up to date. All comments are screened!

Happy Holidays! :D

Space for all cards below the cut. Any card with a number in between parenthesis means I have that many to trade. [Ex: 10. slumber (2) means I have two extra copies of card #10, slumber.] Any number that's blank means I still need that card, so let me know if you want to trade! :D

Cards!Collapse )

I'm pretty sure I've gotten you all with this before, but just in case, if there are any lingering Sailor Moon fans, come on over and join sailormoonland! We have writing, graphics and puzzle/trivia activities, as well as some wonderful discussions from the series. I just relinquished my Main Mod status (which will free up a ton of my time to actually participate XD) and I'm looking for ward to it! You can apply here for Team Inners, Outers and Chaos! Just be sure to tell them sanalith of Outers sent you! :D

The moonlight carries the message of love!

I'm trying to find information on お見合い (omiai) customs, specifically with how they relate to more modern Japan...well, around the 1960s or early 1970s to be precise. I'm particularly interested in how much freedom the couple generally has during the "getting to know you" process. I know that during the first meeting, both sets of parents are present, though the couple can spend some alone time. And after that, they're allowed to go on several dates. Does the couple always need to be supervised, either by the parents or the nakōdo, or can they actually be alone? And any idea on forms of address? Is it your general -san honorific, or does the woman need to be more formal? Finally, is the woman (or her side of the family) allowed to initiate the omiai and/or eventually refuse the marriage, or must everything come from the male side? I would assume it originally had to be the male, but in modern times, maybe the woman has more of an opinion? And would this change if the male side was slightly higher in social and economic standing?

I need to get a life, seriously XDDD

Thanks for any info! :DD

That's right, folks, it's only taken me... *counts on fingers* ...almost eight months to get these posted, but here they are! I know some of you have seen the originals, but I always intended to get at least some online so everyone could see. Just take note that these are from the professional photographer, not the table cameras at the reception, so most of these are formal. I don't have the others on CD, and (as some of you may have noted in previous psots) I haven't been able to have a working scanner for quite some time, so these are the ones you get. They're really the best, anyway. So yeah, do enjoy, and please point people in the direction of the gallery, if you know anyone who doesn't have the link to my journal!

The album can be found here. Have fun!
