I've been dabbling in fandoms (oh, there have been so many) and I'll be the first to admit that I live a bit too much inside my head than in the real world. But hey, we all do that a bit, right? I don't choose my fandoms as easily as I used to; now it's mainly because I've put a rather unhealthy investment in a character/pairing/storyline. I've been writing fanfic for quite some time now (posted over on ff.net), and only discovered LJ a few years back - but the apparent complexities of it all has scared me away thus far, what with all the computer codes and other technical aspects my brain can't possibly handle. I guess I'm finally tired of being a longtime lurker, so *deep breath* here goes nothing!
