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