I feel like I'm strange for liking cute things and horror/dark things at the same time, but I hear it's actually pretty common!

Not just common but canon:

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

 ;)

I'm the same way, I love cute/wholesome stuff and horror stuff at the same time. I would absolutely love it if MLP went back to creepier monsters and more dangerous fantasy elements other than "big magical laser beams" :lol:

I'm a historian. Kind of. xD. Currently trying to turn PhD thesis into a book because right now Covid has got in the way of trying to get from graduating with the PhD to getting an academic job (and I refuse to give up on it even though the current situation may have made it hopeless going forward).

I've always been interested in mediaeval history but my area of specialism is the warrior tales of mediaeval Japan.

I;ve written stories since I was a small kid - both fanfiction and my own. One day I will get one published. Maybe.

I like to travel, which is ironic given that I have really bad problems with navigating. When I was in London, I used to travel the buses a lot and also go out exploring, walking by bus stop so I didn't get lost. I miss that :( But I also love (and miss!) visiting other countries.

I'm also into anime and manga and stuff. I translate sometimes for communities - I translated manga in the past and I have translated a bunch of cd dramas for another community recently.

Something I used to do a lot of was make doll clothes, but not so much in recent years. Mostly for Jem. I don't have the practical skills to use a sewing machine but randomly I do have the practical skills to sew by hand. Go figure.

And I guess this is obvious from the other comments but I really love languages. I speak Japanese and my French is rusty but I can still read it. I have a smattering of other languages as well.

Finally...football (Soccer if you're in the US). To watch, not to play.

A big interest of mine  is heavy metal music and being a part of the UK Metal community  :listen:
I'm also an artist, mainly creating fantasy illustration.
I also collect Ty Beanies - especially Halloween ones
Into the Masters of the Universe franchise but as of yet don't have any toys
I love Nintendo games and PC games such as Minecraft and Hearthstone
Spend most of my free time on such games (But maybe shouldn't haha.) And walking in nature with my partner and/or the family dog  :fox:

I feel rather one-note! Pony is definitely my largest interest. I also love thrifting and hunting for them, cleaning them up, customizing, there's a lot of activities so I don't tire myself out.
I also like Animal Crossing, Tokidoki, Pusheen, Pokemon, sewing/fabricwork, I'm getting into Moomin now...I also like organizing information on wikis and such.
There's more, I'm forgetful of those until they come up.
Are you me? >.> I love Tokidoki, Pusheen and Pokemon as well. I'm getting back into sewing! (I also live in PA, more south/central tho. Lancaster county)

On topic: I collect pyrex, 80s toys, I love to color and play World of Warcraft. We just bought a house and it really messed with my depression, so right now, I actually don't love anything - not even my family. :)

My main interests are Anime, Japanese mythology, and currently xianxia/wuxia books/ series and video games. I also enjoy playing with resin.

 Wuxia ( 武俠 wǔ xiá ) - literally means "Martial Heroes". Fictional stories about regular humans who can achieve supernatural fighting ability through Chinese martial arts training and internal energy cultivation. Themes of chivalry, tragedy, revenge & romance are common.

Xianxia ( 仙侠 xiānxiá ) - literally means "Immortal Heroes". Fictional stories featuring magic, demons, ghosts, immortals, and a great deal of Chinese folklore/mythology. Protagonists (usually) attempt to cultivate to Immortality, seeking eternal life and the pinnacle of strength. Heavily inspired by Daoism.

I know this thread is a little old, but I was considering making a similar thread and I found this one so I might as well respond here instead!

My biggest interest at the moment is Battle for Dream Island, a silly little cartoon about talking objects competing for prizes.  I'm also into Popee the Performer, an old CGI animated kids series from Japan.

Some of my non-animated interests include machine learning, linguistics (especially phonetics), and vocal synthesis.  The human voice is an amazing thing, and it's incredible how well technology can be taught to replicate it, especially via stuff like Tacotron2.  Funnily enough, my interest in these three things is connected to my interest in ponies!  It's a pretty long story, but essentially, bronies were the people who introduced me to the concept of training an AI to mimic a human voice.  I might actually make a thread about it in Pony Corral.

Some toys I like are Furbies and Tamagotchis.  I have a couple of both lines.

My dogs :)

I like to read books about history. Usually European history but lately I've been trying to read more U.S. history since I've realized that i don't know a lot about the history of the country I actually live in. I'm also trying to branch out and read about other parts of the world. I also like to read novels but I haven't been able to handle anything too emotional during the pandemic. I've also been listening to a lot more podcasts lately.

I don't watch a lot of new movies. All of my favorites are at least 25 years old at this point. If it came out after 2002 I probably haven't seen it. For TV i like X-files and Fringe. But also during the pandemic I've been watching a lot of older sitcoms. I can watch Seinfeld pretty much on repeat and not get sick of it.

I also like to build websites. Even though its my 9-5 I like building sites and doing code challenges for fun. I don't have much creative freedom at my job so side projects give me the opportunity to learn and try out newer tech. Though i'm not great at actually finishing my side projects. I usually abandon them for a while and come back. I also like to blog about web development. I'm hoping to do more blogging in the coming year.

Hockey, baseball, football...I enjoy most sports (either watching or playing depending on the sport itself :)). I adore hiking and camping; my trips center around hiking in the U.S. National Parks.  Unfortunately the Midwest has little in the way of hiking to the level I prefer, but that’s all the more reason to travel!

Let's see well I'm very into the furry community.  I love creepy stuff like horror, creepypasta, cryptids. I also love kawaii pastel things and especially love when cute things are also creepy. I also do digital art lots of crafts.
