I'm Kitty, I'm twenty-five, have a BA in history and philosophy as of May 2009, and briefly dabbled in academia as a a political science graduate student and teaching assistant. Currently between careers.
For the most part I am harmless, perky, and verging on the bizarre; it takes some real work to piss me off. I'm on the autistic spectrum, diagnosed with PDD-NOS (essentially, no particular disorder but definitely on the spectrum). I am a stress addict. Thanks to kaesa, I am also an honorary Jew (oy gevalt).
I'm a history geek -- Russian history from the Revolution (the Bolsheviks in particular) to the Cold War. I wrote my thesis on Cold War foreign policy from Truman to Kennedy. I also have a major thing for Napoleon Bonaparte (thus my default icon).
I am a politico and policy wonk -- I consider myself a progressive independent, but I certainly lean left. I do my best to be strictly even-handed and read as much from both sides of the aisle as I can, and I love to talk to people about politics, policy, and the way they feel about how American government (or government in general, really) should work.
I am a budding radical feminist.
I consider myself a Twitter activist. Follow me on Twitter here.
The most large-scale fic project I'm involved in (with dramaturgy, my dearest Liz) is fathersandsons, a Harry Potter epic fic that kind of defies description besides WEREWOLVES.
A short list of fandoms I consider myself a part of: - Harry Potter - Supernatural - Doctor Who/Torchwood - Sherlock - Rent - Dollhouse - The West Wing - Good Omens - Grey's Anatomy - Heroes - Girl Genius - Firefly/Serenity - ... and many more. I am a fandom gypsy.
With regards to graphics: I DON'T make graphics (okay, except for my bad history ones), so anything that is uncredited is so because I found said graphic somewhere ELSE where it was uncredited. If you notice I have one of yours, tell me and I'll credit. Also, the River Song moodtheme currently on this journal was made by the supertalented ponchogoblins -- if you like it, go, join, there are a million more awesome ones where that came from.
There are motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane, ladies and gentlemen.
