This is my fanfiction all-purpose journal. Sometimes I note down interesting things in my life, sometimes I go through brief frenzied spasms of fanfic.

I'm a big fan of science-fiction, especially things with raggedy space fugitives (Firefly, Farscape, Battlestar Galactica, CJ Cherryh), time travel (Connie Willis, Ring of Fire), and alien first-contact (Stargate, Vernor Vinge, CJ Cherryh again). I loved Harry Potter and Diana Wynne Jones when I was a kid and young teen, and I still retain a fondness for those kind of books. I also love historical fiction, especially WWII and the Napoleonic wars. I am a bit of a hypocrite about fantasy-- I dislike most of the genre but really love certain specific books and series. Again, I hate police procedurals but loved NCIS before I lost interest. Just now, at the time of updating this profile again, I'm getting into John Le Carre and Alexandre Dumas. My slash/het/femslash preferences vary depending on the specific character and fandom.

But there is one thing I love more than any of those-- CROSSOVERS.

I do talk about my problems in this journal a lot, but I try not to take myself too seriously. I will be slightly puzzled and hurt but not heartbroken or psycho-enraged if you unfriend me.

Я знаю Русский язык, но очень плохо его читаю.

The explanation for my username can be found here. If you feel weird addressing me as "fullofowls", we can pretend that my given name is Owls. Fortunately, I do not actually share the affliction of the man in the comic, but I do find owls entertaining. They can turn their heads upside down!
