I posted a comment at [personal profile] theladyscribe's If you build it, they will come: a friending meme for reasons. (these reasons being me hoping to make some new fannish friends)

I will not be doing the December posting meme because I suck at anything that requires commitment, but maybe I will end up spending more time at DW anyway. I would like to interact with people more here. Fannishly. My journals have become a wasteland with an odd 'my life sucks' cactus and infrequent 'I have no money' tumbleweed here and there.

So here's an idea: I will try to post more about fandom things. To kick it off, here's the update on what I've been doing on the internet for the past few months!

1. I read a shitload of fic on AO3. This takes up a lot of my time. Most recently I've been reading MCU fic the most. Sometimes I switch back over to Teen Wolf. Sometimes I read Inception, Leverage, and Torchwood. Sometimes I look for crossovers with those fandoms.

2. I go to Tumblr at least once a day now (biiiig improvement over how often I used it about a year ago, which was like, practically never).

3. Think about writing. Take notes and/or outline new fics. Rarely, write prose for said fics.

Oh, and today I acquired Loki Agent of Asgard 001-008. I will attempt to read them one of these days.

good morning!

I need to post here more often. last night I was backreading some of my circle's posts and saw several bemoaning the shift of fandom to Tumblr and how after the move to LJ some of us were not-quite-comfy with all the new info (posts about our cats and plants and bodily functions...) but now it's gone in the opposite direction and there's very little of the personal now. And how it's harder to make new fannish friends. I think it's not harder, it's just different. But I also would like to hang out here more often and interact with my circle more. But that's on ME. I don't spend a lot of time on Tumblr but I don't spend a lot of time on DW or LJ, either. The majority of my interactions happen via IM nowadays, but because of my various anxieties, I'm only chatting with 3 people on a regular basis: [personal profile] majoline, [personal profile] calystarose, and [ profile] limnetic. I don't really feel comfortable with anyone else anymore. :\ But I think I'm better with interactions on DW and LJ. And I recently joined [ profile] ushobwri and am trying to comment there and be a real part of that community, though it's way outside what's become my comfort zone.

gotta go. we're taking meg to get her new AFOs today. they have stars! current ones have butterflies and I think the stars are a little more 'grown up'. :)

firstly, thank you to the people who sent gifts for my boys this season. I would not have had anything with which to get them stuff if not for your generosity. so much love. ♥

secondly, thank you to the folks who nominated me to receive DW points over at [personal profile] nanila's journal. I didn't know this was happening until just now when I got an email telling me I just got points! so to my friends who thought of me: you made my day so shiny.

flist woes

I miss some of my friends who are still at LJ and not likely to leave. I understand, you have problems with DW or you don't want to leave LJ because of the people still there. You might end up like me, ignoring the ones you left behind. Or, like A, you hate DW with fiery death hate. I don't understand that, but I accept it.

THE PROBLEM IS THIS: I'm missing out on your important posts! Until a few days ago, I only had 1. [ profile] a2zmom on a feed (which doesn't pick up locked entries) and 2. [ profile] ladycat777 tracked so that I get entries in my inbox/email. That's it! Today I added like, one more person to tracking, but there's got to be an easier way to do this. I have many more people I want to follow who are only at LJ.

So here is what you can do to help me. If you have a DW with mirrored content and I don't have it added to my circle, LET ME KNOW. I will add you gleefully. If you are only posting at LJ, let me know that, too. I will figure out what to do with this knowledge.

I know some people on my flist read both places. In order to do that I will have to do a mass defriending at LJ, so if I go that route and you get cut, keep in mind that I'm reading you SOMEWHERE. Probably. :\ I might cut some people because of fannish drift or the whole 'we were never that close anyway, woe' but please don't take it personally if that happens.

OH. And if, like [ profile] a2zmom you have a feed over here at Dreamwidth, it would be AWESOME if you let me know so I can add it.

Someone bought me 6 months of paid time here at DW! I love DW, and I'm so so happy to get my icons back. Well, as soon as I reupload them. :D Thank you thank you, mystery gifter!

I finished my auction fic, and now it just needs to be beta read, edited (to hell and back, probably), and posted. \o/ (I almost made the sex really bitey and claw-y but then I was like 'what if my auction winner doesn't like that?' so I didn't go that route. I do want to write some bitey and claw-y sex, though. soon, self)

It's cold and rainy here. Yuck.

Icon making is more time consuming than I'd remembered. (most of the time is spent looking for the features previous versions of PSP had that PSP X4 does not have) Sometimes I wish I was a Photoshop person, but I tried it once or twice and it wasn't for me.

I can post polls again! This makes me happy. However, I have no idea for a poll right now, so I'll not do it.

I've been really posty lately! I hope no one minds. :D?

1. I added some people to my circle from the DW friending meme. They are all TW people. \o/ Hi new people!

2. Went to Meg's holiday program at her school today. It was ace.

3. Am almost done with my Dragon Big Bang! Well, I'm in the middle of the climax, and then I'll have some more stuff to write but then I'll be DONE, BABYYYYYYYY!

4. Saw Adam today! He looks good. Happy.

...that is all for now.

made a community here on DW for bipolar disorder. there is a comm on DW already, but it's not locked nor is it very active.

[community profile] phases is member-locked and I hope will be a safe haven for people with diagnosed bipolar and bipolar 2 to discuss and vent on bipolar and related topics.

Blogging Against Disablism Day Will Be May 1st

I don't know if I'm going to participate or not, but I look forward to reading the posts.

I am going to do a little experiment now by turning off comments at LJ and only allowing comments at DW on my crossposted entries. You can use OpenID if you don't have a DW account. If you WANT a DW account, I still have three codes and there's a bunch of codes up for grabs at [site community profile] dw_codesharing.

Ah, the house is quiet. Meg is at school and Mom has gone to the doctor. I should write more vampire!Gerard in the 17th century.

Goooooooood morning, internets!

I woke up to it again -- TMI of the poopy variety )

I finished my dS fic and sent it off to beta. It's a full 10k over what it was supposed to be. But yay writing! Today I hope to start on my Vampire Big Bang because the story has been banging around in my head and I need to tell it.

I want to write the werewolf fic, but it doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

I am not signing up for any more challenges. Nope.

I am going to post a poll and prompt post later for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw. I will write short fics (ha) and writing meta (double ha) on the topics YOU choose. But the content will only be at DW, so keep an eye on this journal.

I'm considering not crossposting for three weeks. I don't know if I can doooo it. Maybe I just won't crosspost the actual ficlets and meta.

There wasn't a lot of interest on my poll about Get Mikey Laid. I'm assuming that is because my flist is smallish on the bandom side? It CANNOT be because people don't like Mikey. I refuse to believe that. I still think I will try to run a smallish fest for it, though, and hope with some advertising it garners more support.

I would like a larger bandom community on Dreamwidth. Maybe I will start a squee comm, where comment fic and picspams as well as longer fics are welcome. Is anyone interested in something like that? I could start with a friending meme for DW and then move on from there. IDK, just thinking out loud.
