Hi Friends, LJ Users, Nigerian Scammers, Russian Bots and sundry others!
Thanks for taking a moment to read my sticky post on friending.

On the whole, there's no need to friend me if you just want to read my fics, since they are posted unlocked. In fact, most of my locked posts are me ranting about the state of the world (usually from a politics or media slant) or some such.

Generally, I am a ready friender. If you friend me and you have entries in your livejournal or have commented on some of my posts, you can usually expect to be friended back, unless:
* There are no entries in your LJ.
* I do not recall us ever having 'spoken' online (given how selective my memory is, you should probably assume this.)
* Your LJ is written wholly in a language I do not speak (pretty much anything that is not English, or French or Italian (both of which I speak poorly), or German, Spanish, Latin, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Welsh or Irish (all of which I have a smattering of and enough reference books to get the gist.) (Though if your journal is in actual Latin as opposed to Lorem Ipsum, I will probably immediately friend you on principle.)
* Your journal consists of several entries a day concerning My Little Pony, school and whether your hair looks better in plaits, pigtails, or with a fringe pouf. You are probably adorable, but should not be subjected to my occasional flocked rants.

SO, if you've friended me (thanks!) and I've not friended you back, just drop a brief line saying 'Excuse me, oh vague and neglectful one, could you friend me back please?'

I can't guarantee that I will ever have time to be a good lj friend, but I will try and provide you with amusing content and I always try to read my whole flist. Well, the stuff before the cut at any rate.

Hi there, I've been devouring your fic (& luckily still have more to read). Your journal looks interesting too, so I hope it's alright that I've added you.

Thank you! That's really kind – and now I also feel very guilty about the number of WiPs on my hard drive … More writing! (Though I am also filled with guilt about the number of open reading tabs … happily, I am moving to a new house which has much less in the way of distracting things 50m from the door, so I can write AND read!)

*pok pok pok* is this thing on?

Thank you! And yes, this LJ does need to be on more, you're quite right. I keep meaning to write some comedy about Australian politics but our PM keeps being more absurd than any satire I could create!

Oh I know. I'm reduced to staring in slack-jawed horror.

Hello! I am friending you after reading all your lovely posts on heroic women. And I love your icon.

I was convinced I'd already friended you, but apparently I've just been reading you being interesting and brill on other people's posts. I think my brain is spending 2015 impersonating an otter …

So many great comments on Rai's post! I have to go back and read and write more, but it's going on for 1am here, so later ;-)

Otters are lovely! My friend [ profile] altri_uccelli has sadly largely left HP fandom for hockey RPF, but she has a very endearing recurring character there called Puck (actual name Pangur Ban) who is the otter daemon of one of the players.

Hello my dear, karenmollberg recommended you to me, and I've always had success with her recs. So this is why I've added you. I see she's suddenly disappeared though which is sad.

Hello! Any friend of Karen's is a friend of mine! I am having a bit of a madly busy few months, so am likely to be boring here for a while, but wll be back shortly. Probably to rant about politics.

And where is Karen?! She's lovely! I hope she is all right.

Same here, I'm interesting usually I swear.

I don't know! I hope so too, I miss her already.
