Name: Eleanor (call me Ellie) Age: 19 Gender: FEMALE Occupation: Professional Morrissey fan. It's a full time job... ;)
My name is Ellie. This is me and some of my friends: (I'm the second from the left.)
From left to right: Shel, Me, Fi (at the back), Katharine - or Special K as I love to call her. Rachael (my lovely friend and beta) should also be in this picture, then I'd be 100% happy with it. And YES, it was halloween so we were in fancy dress. I was a bee - because who isn't a little afraid of bees?
Come September I will be immersed in the new season of House and no doubt neglecting my university studies! Soon, I will be a full-time English Lit/Lang student so I hope my fics will get better. I was originally doing Forensic Science, but my crippling anxiety got the better of me and I decided I wouldn't be able to cope with being watched all the time during chemistry practicals. But I'm happy now. I've always been consistently good at English, so I know I'll enjoy it. :]
I like to spend a lot of my free time writing House (MD) fan fiction. I mainly ship House/Wilson, but House/Cuddy doesn't really bother me. It probably should, but it doesn't. I am also fairly active in the Harry Potter, Life on Mars (UK) and Scrubs fandoms. I think my love for slash, for House, for Snape and specifically for House/Wilson has gone from being an obsession to a way of life LOL. There's barely a day that I don't think about them.
A fact about me: I'm eating marshmallows as I'm writing this.

Dislikes: Most rap and R&B music, baked beans, Fall-Out Boy, Red Dwarf, ship-bashing, how minty most toothpaste is, rattling guitar strings, the Pineapple brand, clubbing, any alcohol other than wine and beer, forgetting my watch, being thirsty, having to pee, watching Emmerdale, these marshmallows - I feel a little sick now...eurgh.

This is me in all my Housian glory:
I am HOT for HUGH LAURIE, RAW for ROBERT SEAN LEONARD, MENTAL about MORRISSEY, and BARMY about BONO. Good times <---------------- yeah, I say that WAY too much in RL.
Speaking of real life, I'm very reserved so livejournal is the place I 'come alive' or so to speak.
Please feel free to friend me, I'll always friend back - unless you display homicidal tendencies, then I might have to reconsider...
