so, this--

I'm going to basically stay here, and lurk at DW.

I've been here a long time, and I'm ancient and change comes hard and slow for me. I can't see too much trouble brewing for me--my fics are backed up at AO3, I've got files of just about everything and am more than happy to send them along to them what asks. And in case I should disappear without a word, feel free to share my fics, illustrate them, act them out in interpretive dance, just about anything but rewrite them to change names and whatnot and claim them as your own. That I'd have to frown on, and chase you from the interwebs with burning pitchforks and while shaking my torch at you...wait, that's not right....

Yay! :D I know what you mean about change coming hard. I think if LJ dies, I'm done. Very sad but I just can't.

I know...I'm glad that folks are going to be spending time between DW and LJ, but man...I can't see how I fit there.

I'm only posting at DW (well, other than the b-day posts this week), so you'll only get my tea pictures and maundering over there. I am commenting on my flist's LJ posts, though. So nobody will really miss me--I don't post that often, anyway.

I can't in conscience support the Russian laws on--well, anything, but I'm leaving my accounts at least until my paid time runs out, so I have access to my friends lists, etc. My fic is locked, and I'll eventually remove it entirely. Right now I plan to leave the accounts, with their arrows to DW and AO3. I can't navigate the site when it's full of ads, so when my paid time is up I'm not buying more, and within six months of that, LJ will delete my accounts.

I hate losing people, but hopefully in the next year a lot more people will migrate to DW and we can rebuild communities there, especially in case the landlords evict us all.

I'm going to try and split my time between the two places, but DW doesn't feel the same to me. It's a matter of getting used to change but I'm getting to that age where change just--eck. Then again, who knows? I surprise me sometimes. :)

Thanks for reminding me to download aaaaalllll the stories!

Thank you for staying :)

I HATE all this change! i don't have time to figure out a whole new place, and I'm happy here - I don't want to lose my friends and the sense of community that has been here for so long. So I'm staying too, until they kick me out. Someday I'll back up all my fic on A03, but god knows when I'll find time to do that.

In the meantime, I'd like to see some of that interpretive dance, please? :)

LOL! Give me a few days and you just might see it! :D

omg, puh-leeeeeeze, woman, grace us with your stories at AO3!! Make me a happy roxy!!

I'll be one of those turning out the lights when the end comes. Not going anywhere! :)

All backed up at DW and AO3 and have started the habit of cross-posting from DW, but the Russians will have to delete my journal, I'm not doing it.

Apr. 23rd, 2017 02:16 am (UTC)
:D I love that!

I was gifted with a paid account, so no going anywhere soon. When I'm feeling it, I'll try the crossposting too.

I'm still here....seems like a lot of work to migrate everything over to DW.
Apr. 23rd, 2017 02:17 am (UTC)
I tried it and I think it worked, but I really haven't checked. I know some folks had trouble. In the mean time, I'm glad lots of folks are staying or cross-posting and not deleting.

Aw come on! I was totally planning on stealing all of your fics and putting my name on them.

I am staying here. I have a Dreamwidth account but I don't know how to use it and I am too old and cranky to learn.

Wait, would would you call this new author? A new name could make all my stuff seem shiny and new. I'd read and review, leave you long, long, rambling comments all about your genuis and talent and your dedication to humanity. ;D

I would call her moxymissiris and I would bathe in your praise and never fess up and no one would ever figure it out. NEVER!

I'll still be here. I tried DW before, but LJ still feels like home. If I give up on LJ, its because I've given up on my fandom life altogether, which I would miss, but, eh, I could see it happening in the future.Then again, I'm sure I will still lurk!
Apr. 24th, 2017 12:17 am (UTC)

*grabs you up and hugs you* That's what happens when you delurk!

I don't think I can leave here either. I thought about it but I'm so at home here. I'll just lurk over there. And change my DW look from time to time to make it look like I'm there, lol!

I imported to DW, but haven't really looked to see if everything went well or not. I'm not a fan of change either. But considering how VERY little I've been posting lately, doesn't really make much difference for my journal. I just like knowing where I need to find my fave peoples. *slyly eyes you*

*huggles & cuddles you* ♥
Apr. 24th, 2017 12:19 am (UTC)
Me too! *jumps all over you, snuggly-like* I'd be so, so , so sad if you disappeared without a word! And if I ever fold this tent for good, you will know, promise! Besides, you know where to find me! ;D

Here to stay until they turn out the lights. Backed up on DW, but that's it. I'm considering to at least look at the friends feed over there, since some moved over entirely. But my main site will be here.
May. 2nd, 2017 06:46 pm (UTC)
I'm really glad about that! I'm not sure what a good fit DW is, so until they actively tell us to get off, I'm staying here and popping in to DW when I remember to. :)
