I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and after someone on my flist asked me about one today, I thought I should go ahead with it. Now I'm not gonna act like I know them all, because I don't, I'm still learning new ones every day and this will be updated when I do. Also feel free to tell me of any I may have forgotten.

ngl, I got most of these from [ profile] ohnotheydidnt :p

You might want to add BSG (Battlestar Galactica), since it's one of those abbreviations that doesn't quite make immediate sense, like SPN. Also, most of the people I know use ILU instead of ILY. Oh, and the ever-popular "srs bsns." XD
