A short notice to those people who know me in real life and weren't specifically invited to my LJ: PLEASE LEAVE. This is my journal and if I wanted you to read it, I would have let you know. If in doubt, don't hesitate to email me. Thanks and see you IRL.


Your typical Geekhag. Born in Germany, grown up all over the world. Majoring in Regional Studies East Asia, with a strong emphasis on Modern Chinese Law and a minor in German Law. CW spends too much time on the web, obsessing about many fandoms. Most un-locked content thus is of the brainless squeeage kind, the journal is is not an exercise in serious online journaling, but rather a crossection of CW's life. There are usually a couple of posts per day, covering themes as diverse as fandoms, writing, university & China, and plain nagging about life.

As this LJ is both serious (e.g. about the current political situation in China) and silly (e.g. obsessive ramblings about the TV-Show-of-the-moment), I am bound to bore all readers of my journal at some point of time. I try to limit this by using various fandom and RL filters. If you are into a certain subject which is present on my interest list, and think I might not notice it immediately by reading your user info, please write me an email and let me know - or just go to answer the latest filter poll.

Friending policy: I have recently started friending people back who want to read what I write about behind fandom filters. That means that I *will* friend you if you ask, but it doesn't mean I'll automatically read your LJ, too. Sorry about that, but I've found that much more than a hundred LJ friends won't work.

Moodtheme: I am currently using a moodtheme made from the icons of quarkz by liberty_icons . You can find it here.

Icons: Most of 'my' icons were salvaged from various icon communities. Credit to the original maker is given in the respective icon's keywords and comments. If the icon was made by me but drawn by a fanartist, you'll find the artist in the comment. Please do not take my icons without asking.

I use brushes and textures I didn't make myself, including but not limited to those made by blimey_icons , crumblingwalls , inexorablyhere and quebelly . (I try to keep this list up to date.)
