Hi, I'm Mako-chan, welcome to my LJ. :) Quick intro: I'm currently working in a small tour company doing reservations, and am looking forward to gaining more experience and working my way up in the industry. I also graduated in 2008 with a B.A. at the University of British Columbia in Interdisciplinary Studies, in which I studied primarily Film/Popular Culture, Literature and Sociology.

I'm a fannish geek who spends far too much time watching and studying TV and reading fic (largely of the slashy variety). I also draw a lot of fanart and crochet geeky dolls (see my Dolls tag for them and my older fabric-based plush dolls).

Current main obsession is Due South, which I fell in love with 15+ years late, but whatever. It's awesome. I'm also pretty into the BBC Sherlock series right now. Previous obsession, which I still have a deep fondess for, is Fakenews/Punditslash fandom. Other obsessions/shows I enjoy current and past include, but are not limited to, Supernatural, Doctor Who/Torchwood, Battlestar Galactica, Chuck, Community, Glee, Slings & Arrows, The Big Bang Theory, Iron Man, OZ, Farscape, Lost, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Babylon 5 (my one true TV love), House M.D., Harry Potter (my one true fandom... over 10 years and still loving it! Well, the books, anyway. The fandom kinda scares me sometimes, but I have a soft spot for it in spite of the rampant insanity), RPGs, and various other things guaranteed to cement my status as a geek.

That's pretty much it. If you want to friend me go ahead, and I'll most likely friend you back. Just drop me a comment to let me know. ^_^ I'm always looking to meet new people online!

My more recent art can generally be found under my 'drawings' tag or in my LJ scrapbook.

Link to my Photobucket fanart gallery, which has some of my older (and thus sometimes a bit iffy) art: http://photobucket.com/albums/v209/ria_oaks/

Also, my DeviantArt account (not much there, just some old stuff): http://riaoaks.deviantart.com/

My crochet (and fabric) dolls can be found either in my LJ scrapbook or 'dolls' tag.

What little fanfiction I've written can be found in my 'writings' tag, and I've posted some of them at AO3 as well.
