What's in your LJ? screencaps mostly and some reviews (I have moved those to wordpress though)
How often do you post in your LJ? it depends

Outlander (I’m basing this on the show since not everyone has read the books. If you wish to speak about the books, which you totally should feel free to do, please put anything behind a spoiler cut).

Have you read the books? Not yet
Favourite characters: Claire
What’s your favorite thing about the show so far? I like that it has a woman as a protagonist that is strong, beautiful and sexually empowered
What is one thing you wish the show would improve on? They should not spoil it in the next seasons...And a little more Jaimie wouldn't hurt ;)
Favourite moments so far: Anything that Claire is in
Favourite pairings: Claire/Jaimie because they have a lot of potential for being a hot and kick ass pair

Other fandoms/Non fannish interests. I like photography, photoshop and making screencaps (and I really love it when people download them ;) ) I adore old brit period dramas and bollywood movies

Other shows you watch, characters you love, pairings you’ll ship till the end of time:
Pride & Prejudice: Darcy/ Lizzie
Sense & sensibility: Edward/ Elinor
Doctor Zhivago: Zhivago/Lara
Marc Antony/Cleopatra <3

Anything else you’d like to share with us: I hope for some new lj friends ;)

Hey, Chris! Nice to meet you. And it is pretty awesome you are in Greece. My Great Aunt spends half her time in Greece and I've always wanted to visit her.

I love how strong Claire is. To me it isn't about feminism but reality. Woman can be strong and capable just like men. Doesn't mean all men or women are but it is something they both have in common.

Pride & Prejudice: Darcy/ Lizzie - Oh me too.

Glad to have you around. I read everything I can. I love to read whether it is fantasy, romance, historical, mystery or anything else... I love it. Yeah sometimes the romances are cheesy but if the story is okay... I'll read it.

It's nice to meet you too. If you ever get the chance you should come to Greece!Especially in the summer. There are some really lovely places here.

About Claire and feminism now. Well, she is amazing and a very feminist icon. To me feminism is about reality and Claire is excellent, because she is beautiful, smart, sexy and strong and she shows that a person can have amazing qualities (like is beauty for our patriarchal culture) and still be a feminist icon. I have read a very interesting article about Outlander in the internet which said that it is the feminist answer to the 50 shadows of grey. I can send you the link if i find it again and you are interested, of course.

Darcy/ Lizzie: how can you not love them. They and their love story are like perfect in every single way. I love the adaptations, too <3

Nice to meet you!

I would love to but I'm not sure I could afford to get from California to NY let alone all the way to Greece. *sigh* Some day. My great aunt shows us pictures. So beautiful.

I'd read it but then to me anything is better than 50 shades so I don't see it as much of a stretch. lol

It is so true. Darcy/Lizzie are just so great.
