Fangirls at Five
Five o'clock--that's cocktail hour. But this list is open 24 hours a day for bitching, moaning, angsting, whiling away the time, distracting yourself from whatever you're trying to avoid. Open to fannish-type, female-type people, writers and non-writers, the sober and the soaked, who want a space to hang and discuss drinking issues, or anything else at all. Fiction with drinking themes. Writing. Buffy. Willow's addiction arc and how stupid/cool it is. The dark aesthetics of alcohol, the fucked-up allure of a cut-glass tumbler. Et cetera.
Other addictive behaviors are open to discussion, but this is a place for witches with black eyes. If your drinking's fine but you're addicted to crack, go ahead and join. You'll fit in. If you're addicted to shoe shopping, look elsewhere. In general this is a space for those of us who are:
- sober on and off
- drinking but ambivalent about it
- sober but ambivalent about it
- drinking but trying to stop
- generally fucked.
Also: if you join, I expect at least an intro post and an occasional peep. Lurking on a list like this is a little questionable. I understand the impulse, I really do, but give a little hand wave once in a while so we know you're part of the hivemind, and not someone taking notes for your next Drunken Lex story. Okay? Cool.
