kaydeefalls: walking across the bridge, lincoln memorial at night (back to work)
Why hello there, self-doubt, how lovely to see you again. blah blah angstcakes )

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. So, is LJ completely dead these days, or is it just me? Is the great fandom migration officially shipping over to Tumblr? Because every morning, I check first DW, then LJ, then Tumblr; DW has moderate activity, maybe 5-10mins of browsing, LJ takes maybe 2 mins at most, and then Tumblr provides a good half hour of entertainment at least. Which makes me a little sad, because I genuinely prefer text-based fandom interaction over reblogging photos, but if that's where all the activity is... Anyway, I'm kaydeefalls over at Tumblr, unsurprisingly, if that's your thing.

Yuletide victory is mine! And AO3 is still running very smoothly. Which was a pleasant surprise.

And my date last night went quite satisfactorily, thank you. \o/

Nothing in particular to add about the latest round of LJ fuckwittery. I continue to be [personal profile] kaydeefalls at DW, which has become my primary home. The downside of Dreamwidth at the moment is that most fannish activity is still centered around LJ; but once enough of us get active over here, that will slowly shift. And please, I've been on LJ for close to a decade, I LOVE the community it fostered, and I will be very, very sad if fandom shifts over to someplace like tumblr instead. (Tumblr is great for image-based fannishness, but oh god, do I ever despise their interface for actual, like, communication. And I'm a very text-based fan myself, so, really not ideal.)

I keep sort of poking around IJ and GJ, but I really can't stand their general site layouts, and I don't like my customization options at all. GJ is slightly more tolerable than IJ overall, but both are really uninspiring. And honestly, I don't see why either are any "safer" than LJ for fandom. They just haven't kerfluffled yet. Meh, I say. I'm waiting to see if fandom actually shifts over, and where it all falls out if it does. In the meantime, while I don't like 6A very much at all, I'm still far too invested in LJ to leave.

Wrote 1080 words of Remus fic today, two new scenes. Which means I'm...1/6 of the way through what I've plotted out. Well, it's progress.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (betrayal)
I have nothing to say about LJ's most recent asshattery that hasn't been said already by far more eloquent people than I, so. I'm cybersquatting kaydeefalls over on IJ and GJ. I don't much like the customization options of either of those sites, and I'm loathe to give up the more than five years' of my life and posts and friends here on LJ, so for now, I'm staying put. Not to mention that my exceedingly multifandom ways would make moving a bitch -- as far as I can tell, it's mainly the HP folks who are talking about up and leaving, but that's only a smallish fraction of my flist, albeit a very vocal fraction this past week. So I'm sticking around.

Over the next few weeks, I'll begin backing up my journal on those sites and elsewhere, and maybe tinkering with my GJ and IJ layouts. But I'd much rather wait and see where fandom actually winds up settling. God, LJ is making my fandom life unduly complicated these days.

I like that LJ has posted "clarification" regarding certain policies (which, among other things, makes it look like posting fic about, say, 16-year-old Remus and Sirius shagging can get you banned) while a good 80% of the people who would get all riled up about it are offline avoiding Deathly Hallows spoilers.

I'd like to see a bit more of an outcry about this, honestly. Although I actually believe it's just 6A being dumbasses, again, and not actually trying to kick off all writers of just-barely-underage erotica. But it would be nice for fandom to smack them around a bit and let them know exactly how stupid they don't seem to realize they're being.

I'd really prefer it if fandom didn't up and move to some other site, but I'm starting to wonder if I'm just in denial about the inevitable. We'll see.

This LJ turned five yesterday. It worries me, somewhat, that one of the longest-lasting commitments of my life has been to an online journal, but so it goes. Seriously, though, I've been here for five years! That's kinda ridiculous.

There shall be fic, soon, to celebrate. Once my beta is through with it. :)
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (it's not paranoia)
I have nothing new to add to the WTFness going on with LJ comms and users being permanently suspended with no warning for listing "incest" or "underage porn" or some other dumb shit as an interest. It doesn't affect me directly, since these are not my particular perversions, but I'm just as angry as if they were. If there's any group/petition/serious effort of any kind to fight back against this ridiculousness, sign me up. I like LJ. I don't want to leave LJ. I don't intend to leave LJ. But I would like for Six Apart to be less stupid sometimes.

For now: [livejournal.com profile] fandom_counts.

I'd like to keep watching the situation as it unfolds, but I've really got to write this paper. Don't go more boom while I'm working, okay?

Hey, LJ? Wanna start sending me comment notifications again, please?

Also, gah, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. I hope my recipient isn't looking for any PLOT in their fic. *facepalm*

kaydeefalls: turnleft!rose is fierce in front of TARDIS: "further to fly" (further to fly)
God, my LJ is boring. My RL is perfectly satisfying but quite uninteresting these days, so I rarely feel compelled to make personal posts, but while I'm still flitting around reading fics, my fandoms of choice seem oddly inactive these days, and I'm not interested in SPN or BSG or SGA or any of the other acronym fandoms that seem to be eating my flist of late (my complete lack of interest in watching TV may have something to do with this). So my LJ winds up being...really, really dull. Sorry, guys. Some people are really brilliant diarists, and their posts are great reads even when they're just talking about cheese or something, and I wish I knew the trick to it but, alas, it is not for me to be a brilliant writer of journal entries. But I'm here, and I'm still reading everything on my flist every day, and...yeah. Hi.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (watchin' all the guys go by)
Y'know, I have absolutely nothing against Supernatural, and I'm quite happy that all the people who love it have new shiny things to squee over now. But man, I do miss the days when my f-list was filled with the fandoms I love.

*skims past 12,000 posts about the Supernatural premiere*

Where have all the HP fans gone? I think there are still one or two X-Men fans bouncing about, likewise LotR. Heck, I'll even take old-school Lotrips or X-Files. Or Firefly. Or QAF. Or several other fandoms that I have even a passing interest in. Alas.

I think I'm always a bit out of it with LJ over the summer. Probably because summertime, for me, means working summer jobs, which are fairly dull but also unstressful, and I generally tend to post to LJ mostly when I'm stressed out or ranty about things. I'm also still strangely unable to focus on anything fandomish right now, although that will hopefully change once this year's [livejournal.com profile] xmmficathon assignments go out. But my three HP WIPs have been languishing unnoticed for over a month, and while I'd like to change that...well, sooner or later, I expect. I can never duck out of fandom for long.

It's 97F outside today. I can't quite bring myself to leave the boy's apartment and return to mine, because the boy's AC is far, far more effective at cooling the apartment as a whole than mine, which only really works in the living room. Bah.

Gacked from everyone, twice:

Comment Anonymously. Tell me secrets about yourself, something juicy, something gossipy, something fun, something sad. Tell me you hate me, tell me you love me, tell me you love her, or him, or it. Just tell me things!

I've found this meme to be kinda cathartic, actually.

So, who just very randomly and anonymously gifted me with 2 months of LJ time? C'mon, show yourself, so's I can shower you with thanks and ficlets! That's so random and awesome of you, anonymous person!

I just unfriended a few LJs on the basis that they haven't posted in over a year and I assume they've abandoned the wonderful world of livejournal, alas. Most were perpetually unused fic journals, actually. But, y'know, if you're actually still around and reading but just not posting, or if you're an unused fic journal that foresees a return to glorious ficcishness in the near future, poke me and tell me I've got it all wrong, and I'll add you back. ;)

Why yes, I'm procrastinating writing my essay, how could you tell?

I'm visiting the boyfriend. Have had v. limited internet access for the past week, and won't really have much time for LJ until I visit Chicago after New Year's, so. Not that my absence is all that notable, but still. I'll have a lot of catching up to do next week, I guess.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (neener!)
Am feeling rebellious against all these silly santa hat icons invading my flist. Perhaps I should doctor my icons with yarmulkes.

I am so bored and sick of being at my parents' house that I am seriously considering undertaking the massive and pointless project of TAGGING ALL MY LJ ENTRIES EVER. Because it would be something time-consuming to do.

Someone convice me that this is a bad idea. Dude, I don't even like those silly LJ tags.

This LJ is three years old today. N'awww. *pokes it*

I meant to have a nice fic thing to celebrate, but then I failed to finish writing it. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised; Lotrips really isn't my fandom anymore, and I've been struggling with this fic since January. But I do want to finish it, in a last hurrah sort of way. We'll see.

Then there's the HP fic I've been working on for seven months. I always get stuck on the middle bits of fics. The beginning is all written, as are bits near the end, but that damn middle. Feh. Now I'm paranoid that something will be revealed in HBP that will somehow destroy the premise of my fic. Perhaps I don't quite have my priorities straight.

I'm not sure when I'll get HBP -- I preordered it ages ago, but I don't think I checked the box and paid the extra money for amazon.com to get it to me on Saturday. So, like everyone else, I'd very much prefer it if all spoilers stayed behind cuts. And I mean ALL spoilers, even little reactions that you don't think are spoilery. Last time, I got spoiled for Sirius's death because about four different people posted non-explicit exclamations in a row, all just different enough to make the full picture painfully clear. Be nice to those of us who are a little late to the party, mmkay? Even though I'm not as enthusiastic about HP as many of you, and wouldn't particularly care if it took another month for me to get book 6, I do want to be unspoiled when I eventually get to it.

Wow. I was just unfriended by three people at once. Nice. Ah, well, I suppose that's what happens when I become so unfandomy.

In other news, I think I may have just been promoted, sort of. I'm apparently going to be helping my supervisor out with managing the database instead of just keying in endless dissertations. Not sure what this means, exactly. Probably less freedom to surf the internet whilst at work. How tragic. I suppose it's too much to hope that this sudden change in responsibilities will mean a pay raise.

I get the feeling that I'm going to need an 11th-hour beta for the [livejournal.com profile] xmmficathon fic. I've got a couple of decent pages written, but it's still moving at a glacial pace. At least I'm getting a little interested in it now.
kaydeefalls: blank with text: "white. a blank page or canvas. so many possibilities..." (which way did he go george?)
By which I mean, I've moved into my apartment for the summer but have no internet yet, so the only place to check e-mail and the flist is from work, where I cannot give it the attention it deserves and it took FAR TOO LONG to sort through skip=175 or sommat. I've also missed birthdays, I think. And I'm pretty sure someone tagged me for a meme somewhere, but it has since been lost into the netherworld of cyberspace and the dissertation database.

Also, memo to self: there's a REASON you bought the makings of sandwiches. It was so you can MAKE SANDWICHES to bring to work so that you are not akin to a ravenous wolf by the time you get off work in seven minutes. Nimrod.

Shall try to catch up on internetness tomorrow. From work. And then kick boyfriend's rear into gear re: getting internet into apartment.
