How long have you had your LJ: 13 years, 3 months.
What does your username mean: It's my Craft name, taken from The Silmarillion, being the nickname Beren gave Lúthien when he first beheld her singing and dancing in the forest. It's Sindarin for "nightingale". I added the 'h' to the original spelling of the name (Tinúviel) for numerological purposes. Six years after my initiation, I found my way onto the Internet in 1998. When prompted to create an account with AOL, Tinhuviel became my online presence as well. I came to LiveJournal in 2002 and brought my name along with me.
What is your favorite thing about LJ: It's writer-friendly, which I deeply appreciate, but my favourite thing about LJ is the people. I have forged many lifelong friendships through the site, and I'm very grateful for that.
What is your least favorite thing about LJ: Semagic was my lifeline to the site for the majority of the time I've been here. When I switched to Mac, though, I can no longer use Semagic, nor have I found a comparable client. As a result, I'm not as plugged in to my friends' page as I used to be, and I have lost quite a few posts to Internet interruption while trying to post a new entry on the site itself.
What is your motivation on Live Journal? It was originally a safety valve where I could go rant instead of picking up a gun and crawling into a tower. I had an incredibly stressful job at the time I joined, so the medium became my primary outlet. It also serves as a playground for writing ideas as well as socially charged opinion pieces.
Have you ever met anyone on your F List in real life? I have indeed.
Do you have a paid subscription? I have a Permanent Account.
Where do you live? San Diego, California, United States
Do you have an accent? Yes. A North Carolina accent.
Do you have pets? Yes. Smidgen the cat and Toby the dog.
Do you/Did you go to school: Yes. Graduated high school and have had some college and tech school experience, as well.
Do you work: Not anymore.
Where/What do you do: I write.
Do you have more drama at home or at work: The only drama I have is where I live now.
What do you often write about: Vampires, philosophy, scientific theories, religion, social issues, music, and movies.
What else should readers know: I love you.
