Name/nicknames: Dean or Mako (but mostly Dean).
About you: I’m a Classics and History double major from the USA. I am proficient in Latin, love German, and am engaged in a never ending cosmic struggle with Attic Greek. My favorite color is blue and my favorite animals are swans.
Favourite titles/canons: Nightwing, Teen Titans (all incarnations), Batgirl, Robin, (okay, basically any batfamily book) Impulse, Young Justice (comic), Justice League International, Batman: The Animated Series, Red Hood and the Outlaws (fff)
Favourite Story Arcs: A Death in the Family, Gates of Gotham, Batman Prodigal, Robin: Year One, Under the Hood, Hush, The Judas Contract, Anything by Scott Snyder.
Favourite characters: Dick Grayson, Barbara Gordon, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown, Cassandra Cain, Damian Wayne, Koriand'r, Ted Kord, Michael Carter, Bart Allen, Conner Kent, Roy Harper, Lian Harper, Mia Dearden, Kaldur, Donna Troy, Dinah Lance... (Okay, so I basically love everyone)
Favourite pairings: Everyone/Everyone else, Tim/Bart/Kon, Dick/Babs, Dick/Kory, Dick/Bruce, Jason/Bruce, Booster/Beetle, Cassandra/Stephanie, Barbara/Dinah, Dick/Roy, Dick/Wally, Dick/Tim/Jason/Steph/Cass/Damian in any combination, Kaldur/Roy
Non-DCU fandoms: I'm not really active in any other fandoms at the moment, but I do enjoy video games (Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Phoenix Wright, Pokemon, Parasite Eve, Final Fantasy VII, Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Shadow of the Colossus, ICO, God of War, Resident Evil, and Hotel Dusk) and musicals (Elisabeth, Rebecca, and Tanz der Vampire, Rocky Horror, Repo!). I'm also quite the history nerd so I post about that sometimes.
Homes outside of LJ: I don't hang around on livejournal at all these days. You can find me on Tumblr tho! :] I also play a lot of virtual pet games (gryffs, leopets, petz) under various names (feel free to ask!)
Anything else:
I bring you educational posts such as this: Dick Grayson is Zoolander.

Mixed feelings: Nerdy Mintygemfyre on January 18th, 2012 06:09 am (UTC)
Name/nicknames: Gemfyre (okay, my real name is Belinda)
About you: My top 3 interests (besides Batman) are cooking, birdwatching and karaoke. I'm a bit of a fiend in the kitchen. That said - my LJ has become more bloggy and less "short crap that now gets posted to Facebook", so you'll see plenty of long posts about food and birds there. :) Oh yes, and I am an Aussie! All those creepy-crawlies that scare Americans, I love 'em! Let me refer you to the post about the King Brown snake in my bed...
I saw The Dark Knight along with pretty much everyone else in the world in 2008 and went from not giving a stuff about Batman to being absolutely intruged. Further research and reading and now I'm a diehard fan.
Favourite titles/canons: Anything Batman written after 1985. Long Halloween was particularly awesome and I've read it multiple times. Currently reading D&d Batman and Robin.
Favourite characters: *squee* Robins! Especially Jason, but they all rock. And Alfred, who is more awesome than the rest of the entire Batfamily put together.
Favourite pairings: Dick/Babs, Tim/Kon, Bruce/Dick, Jason/anything that moves
Non-DCU fandoms: Terminator universe
Homes outside of LJ: You can find me as Gemfyre on Facebook too (although I only tend to add people I know), I have a Tumblr, but I really only use it so I can read other people's feeds, I barely use my Twitter account, my Dreamwidth account is essentially a clone of my LJ...
Anything else: Ummm, I'm always useless at this bit. Not that I can think of at this very second.

Name/nicknames: Valerie Renee
About you: I'm 28, from Pennsylvania USA, got into comics about two years ago, but it's currently my absolute favorite pastime. I also have been on adventure to teach myself how to cook and live a simple life, but I don't blog about that too much here, because I keep that over at Blogspot. I write fic, review comics, rant about them, and am always looking for suggestions on new stuff.
Favourite titles/canons: From DC--Batwoman, Birds of Prey, Blackhawks (which I'm in the process of mourning), Secret Six, most things Batverse. I like Robins, but I'm not currently getting any of their titles. I also love Stumptown from Oni, and can't wait for more issues.
Favourite characters: Renee Montoya got me into comics, so she'll always be tops <3, Batwoman, Babs-as-Oracle, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Maggie Sawyer, Dinah Lance, Steph, and oh yeah Scandal Savage
Favourite pairings: Kate/Renee, Kate/Maggie, Babs/everyone (men and women), Steph/Cass,
Non-DCU fandoms: I like pretty much any book or TV series with a strong female lead.
Homes outside of LJ: valerie-renee @ Tumblr, and my lifestyle blog is over here
Anything else: I love talking, and though I've had my attention in other areas lately, I've been catching up on comics and I have lots of feelings I'm ready to share! Also, I'm dedicated to keeping LJ alive, so I'd love to spur new interaction :-)

l_junkiel_junkie on January 22nd, 2012 09:00 am (UTC)
Name/nicknames: Yaya Koshiya or Yaya for ease
About you: I live in Texas and love comics (printed, web comics, American, Japanese, Korean...as long as it's translated, bring it on), movies, animation (I favor hand rendered), and drawing. I've only recently returned to the latter, though. I mostly read fan fiction, rather than write it. I started actively reading DC about a year ago, but was a huge fan of Batman:TAS, Superman:TAS, Justice League/Unlimited,and Batman Beyond.
Favourite titles/canons: Batfamily, but especially Batman, B&R, and Batwoman. I think Tiny Titans is adorable, I enjoy Justice League, and I love/hate Red Hood and the Outlaws. I've started pre-boot Gotham Knights and like it lots. Also, Young Justice animated.
Favourite characters: Batman/Bruce Wayne, Robins, Batwoman, Superman, Terry McGinnis, Wally West!Flash, Lex Luthor.
Favourite pairings: Batfam/Batfam, Batman/Superman (mostly because of Mithen), Dick/Roy, Tim/Kon, Wally/everyone, Clark/Lex, Bruce/Lex, Tim/Lex (I blame Te), Bruce/Selina, Bruce/Diana, Green Arrow/Black Canary
Non-DCU fandoms: ...I got my hands full up there...but Sherlock Holmes and some webcomics like Goodbye Chains,
Knights Errant, and
The Less than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal.
Homes outside of LJ: Tumblr: Way-schway
Anything else: Japanese Lit, anyone? Like Ryu Murakami, Mishima, Kirino, Tanigawa and classics books like Tale of Genji and Musashi.
aurora_dark on January 25th, 2012 06:27 am (UTC)
Sadly I know nothing of Japanese Lit (apart from reading a few Murakami novels..), but it looks like we have plenty else in common! It looks like you pretty much love everyone I do, apart from Lex although I once came perilously close to writing an unsettling Lex/Tim fic... And yay for TJ & Amal ♥

abbyromana on January 25th, 2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
Name/nicknames: Abbyromana

About you: I'm a fangirl and writer of many fandoms, including those of the DCU that I was initially exposed to when I was very young and returned to recently. I'm also a science and math geek. :D

Favourite titles/canons: The Batfamily titles tend to be at the top of my list, but I also enjoy reading Superboy, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Superman-Batman, JLA, Birds of Prey, Static Shock, Titans, The Flash, and Wonder Woman from time to time. I have to say I also like to read older stories occasionally to get an idea of Pre-Crisis of Infinite Earth's timeline. Outside of comics, I enjoy the TAS series, Young Justice, Teen Titans, the original Supergirl movie, the new Green Lantern movie, and several of the direct to video movies, including Under the Red Hood and Superman-Batman: Apocolypse.

Favourite characters: Stephanie Brown/Spoiler/Robin/Batgirl, Virgil Hawkins/Static , Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing/Batman, Donna Troy/Wonder Girl/Wonder Woman/Troia, Damian Wayne/Robin, Kara Jor-El/Kara Kent/Supergirl, Raven/Rachel Roth, Kon-El/Superboy, Wally West/Kid Flash/Flash, Roy Harper/Speedy/Arsenal/Red Arrow, Koriand'r/Starfire, Mar'i Grayson/Nightstar, Dex-Starr, Rose Wilson/Ravanger, M'gann Mor'zz/Miss Martian and Jason Todd/Robin/Red Hood

Favourite pairings: I don't really consider myself a shipper, since I have no allegiance to any particular pairing and write wherever my muses take me. As long as there's no incest involved, I'm probably not bothered by it. :)

Non-DCU fandoms: Doctor Who, BtVS, Community, Star Trek, Star Wars, Sherlock, Stargate (SG-1 and SGA), and Campion

Homes outside of LJ: I have a dreamwidth account under the same name as this one (though I havent' posted there much recently). I do have a Tumblr account also under the same name as my LJ and a twitter account under BestWonderGirl (Donna Troy). I most often frequent the Tumblr or my LJ over all of them, if you want to reach me.

Anything else: I'm very open to discussing characters and stories, particularly from a fan writer's POV, if anyone once to bounce ideas back and forth. :)

Viiirgiiiiil <3

Oh awesome, alwaqys nice to meet someone else who liked the Green Lantern movie!
Crustacean Replicator: Tim Drake - Ruined imagekrillia on January 26th, 2012 09:39 pm (UTC)
Name/nicknames: krillia, my friends "call" me Krill, which is unfortunate but I don't mind. :)

About you: I'm a girl who has been alive for 28 years, and has been a comic fan for 15 of them.

Favourite DC comics/canons: The largest part of my heart is with the Arrow Family. Most of the Titans teams have my love, and I adored the pre-reboot Birds for being a group of amazing women.

Favourite characters: Roy Harper first and foremost, at least until the Fall and New 52. Dick Grayson is my hero. Barbara Gordon for overcoming all that she did, and Kyle Rayner for being a badass dork. Krypto because, well, superdog!

Favourite pairings: I'm kind of all over the place with these. Dick/Babs was my OTP for a while, but ever since the reboot I've been questioning that, because the whole nonsense with Kory not remembering Dick just hurts me. Dick/Roy when done well. I'll read other pairings if the summary looks interesting.

Non-DCU fandoms: Marvel (X-Factor [Investigations], Young Avengers, anything by Ed Brubaker), Doctor Who and Leverage mostly.

Homes outside of LJ: Nah. I may end up on AO3 soon, though. I'm still deciding.

Anything else: As a forewarning or a note of interest most of the DCnU pains me. There's a lot of WTF and angry flailing about it in my LJ. It is highly doubtful you'll want to be my friend if you're enjoying Red Hood and the Outlaws, Superboy (I stabbed the first issue with a pair of scissors after reading it), Teen Titans or Green Arrow.

vanoty: Thief!Robinvanoty on January 29th, 2012 12:06 pm (UTC)
Name/nicknames: Vanoty or Vanity, whichever you prefer :)
About you: I love drawing, porn, reading fanfiction, and now his fandom. I am a 'kinky bitch' as my friend likes to call me and am partial to all things Tim Drake.
Favourite DC comics/canons: I love me some Batfamily, though I am interested in expanding my horizons in the near future. The Flash family is my next contender. As for comics, I am especially interested in pretty much anything involving the Robins, though I appreciate the comics in their entirety. Young Justice was entertaining too!
Favourite characters: Tim Drake, Kon-El, Bart Allen, Jason Todd, Dick Grayson, Koriand'r,Bruce Wayne, and Selina Kyle
Favourite pairings: Tim/Kon, Tim/Bart, Kon/Tim/Bart, Tim/Dick, Tim/Jason, Jason/Bruce, Jason/Kory/Roy, Dick/Bruce, Dick/Wally, Dick/Clark, Bruce/Clark
Non-DCU fandoms: I have a few other fandoms that I am interested in, but at the moment, I am pretty much obsessed with DC so I doubt you'll be seeing those any time soon.
Homes outside of LJ: My tumblr, where I post my art outside of fills, and other things: vanoty.tumblr.com
Anything else: If there is anything you would like me to fill with art, and you think it would fall under my interests, let me know!

I know you posted this like two weeks ago, but...

I share literally all your favourite pairings and characters (Tim Drake is the love of my life). Also, your art is beautiful. Amazing.

Do you mind if I friend you? I'm already following you on tumblr.
