She tried to crowd surf and the tide went out

Hi, I'm Astrid

This blog contains mostly reblogging on various tv-shows and films with occasional random rambling and original content. Also a lot of shipping is bound to happen.

Things you'll probably find a lot of on here:

Farscape, Orphan Black, Harry Potter, Cate Blanchett, Orange is the New Black, AbFab

Tv shows I'm currently watching:

Happy Valley season 1

Farscape season 3 (re-watch)

Twenty Twelve season 1

Game of Thrones season 4

I don’t think I am considered a Hollywood star. I have sometimes been told ‘you are on the verge of stardom’, and it amuses me. My professional choices are not those of a star: I am still intrigued by atypical scripts and the idea exploring unknown grounds excite me as much as ever. Thus, I have a predilection for characters that lose themselves; I always look for the flaw, the accident, the vice. As for my private life, it is not gossip material. I have been married to the same man for ten years and I have no taste for exhibitionism. There is no scandal in my life. As a result I am left alone, which make me extremely happy: anonymity fits me perfectly.

I know this is probably the most used phrase on tumblr but: CloneClub you are amazing!!

Thank you so much to everyone who’s contacted me so far! I am really excited about talking to each and every one of you. You’ve made me even more pumped for the 6 months I’ll be spending writing my thesis :)

Have a great weekend all! :D


Hi, my name is Astrid and besides being a multifandom blogger on tumblr, I am also a media studies student. For my master’s thesis I want to write about Orphan Black and the fan community on tumblr. I have, as many I’m sure, enjoyed the talent and imagination of the show and its fans. As a student I’m very interested in the relationships between tv-shows and fans, especially on a site like Tumblr, which offers so many possibilities for fan creativity and interaction.

I’d like to talk to as many people as possible about their personal experiences with the show and with being a fan on tumblr. I am as interested in talking to, for instance fanfiction readers as I am writers - basically my way of saying that if you are primarily a ‘reblogger’ such as myself, I am still more than interested in hearing your story. I would be so grateful and appreciative to anyone who would like to talk. If you’re in any way interested, curious or just want to know a bit more, then please feel free to contact me via my ask, either on this my personal tumblr, or at

Sorry for the long text post, I harnessed a little creative power and made a little gif for all of you - trust me, it took a lot longer than it may look to have done. Hope to hear from you soon. Help a fellow fan out and let’s talk all things OB!
