This journal is semi-locked; fandom related stuff is public and more personal stuff and private bitching is under f-lock. If you want to read the personal stuff, I have to friend you in return... and I'll only friend you back if I know who you are. If you just want to read the fandom-based stuff I post here, then you can watch my journal for public updates without worrying about whether or not I friend you. OK? Enjoy!
