*siiiiiiigh*

Did a little light house-keeping, flist pruning. All those LJs with the lines through them. There were so many it was really sad. Plus lots and lots and lots of folks who haven't posted since the year one. I remove so few of them, kind of hoping they'll come back one day. I know, I know! Hope springs eternal! (and on the absolutely, incredibly unlikely event that I defreinded and you think it's an accident, it is! Let me know.) It's downright depressing how many journals I'm friends with that are dead. Every time those birthday reminders come up, it's just another stab in my fannish heart. Folks. Moving on.

And speaking of moving on, just where are folks going these days? What are people writing about? I'm curious, because they're not really writing that much SpN or CWRPF anymore. I hope I'm just being a big ole depressing wet blanket and things pick up again when the new season starts. Oh well. I'm still all Wincest, all the time, except for a side of Sastiel, because Sam/Cas just is so much more interesting to me than Dean/Cas. Those two are kind of made for each other, to me. But once again, I wander from my main point!

This is always the point! :D

Still here and still reading, I just tend to only post over on Twitter and Instagram these days.

OMG! I nearly dropped my tablet! Haha! Well, I'm very happy to know that you're still reading, and still here! And a prime example of why I rarely prune and then only lightly. ;D

How lovely to see you! You've made my morning!

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
I know, bb. It sucks how slowed down all of LJ seems, and fandom. But it *is* still going strong. A lot of people over on DW, even though i don't seem to ever remember to go through my flist over there. (Bad!)

I....have not touched my flist or removed anyone in years. Which maybe i should, since when i look at how many people are on my flist, and the bare number who post and/or comment....

Yeah, there with you in the stabby heart department.
*clings*

And yes. That 'nice little pic'? So fucking much the point. :)

I confess, my almost obsessive need for order made me go through all the strike-outs on my profile page. It's so sad! And messy! I don't remove folks for not commenting but if, when I go to their LJ, I see they haven't posted in like, eight years, well... :D

DW doesn't feel anymore active to than LJ. Maybe the places I go, or I just don;t know many people anymore. *shrug*

I'm still here, but I'm on Twitter more. LJ just feels like it's in its final death throes, for real, this time. It doesn't seem to matter how much or what I try to post or comment, everything has just dried up *shrugs* It sucks, but I don't think there's any way to bring LJ back to what it was.

I was discussing where all the fic has gone with someone last week. I'm still reading, still writing, but I don't know where all the cool kids have gone. Even AO3 has tumbleweeds blowing through it.

I know! My perspective is from that of a wincest reader/writer, but it seems new postings at AO3 are mostly nothing but id fics, and most of those I can't connect with anymore--they're either boring or poorly written. Where are the stories with great characterization, gripping case fic, or even love for the characters that are being written? Most of the time, they're strangers doing puzzling things anymore. And if I have to back out of one more "Dean, our dad's a monster" story without there being a real reason he's a monster...ha! But that's not what we're talking about!

It's been a long ass time, and 13 years for fandom is a damn good run. SpN is just fading away, or turning into something else. Could it be that fanfiction in total dying, or is it more active elsewhere?

I'm really sad about this, because when I stop writing for SpN, I stop writing period. I'm not sure what happens to me after that! :)

Hey Roxy, I understand how sad it can be seeing a lot of journals deleted. I won't be deleting mine, but I am still deleting my stories from here. Don't worry, they're still on AO3. I haven't been watching Show for the last couple of seasons tbh. I love the boys but I'm just not feeling it. Same with Arrow, Flash etc. I still love SV though. I have a few fics left to finish, one is a crossover with SpN, but it's feeling a little neglected because I've been so busy working on my books. Yep, I've turned pro, haha. That's what's taking all my time and focus at the moment. Anyway, don't ever stop posting because I love seeing your posts and seeing how you're doing. Hugs.

Thank you!!

Oh, and as long as you're here, she says ominously...lol! Say, since you're pro writer, do you still feel any desire to write fanfiction? How different is it for you to write around someone else's character as opposed to your own? I wonder sometimes, if it's harder to write your own character?

Heee, sounds like we're doing an interview the author segment. :)

I know it's been over a year since I've posted anything. Every time I think "I want to post this on LJ" I end up distracted or think too much about how to say what I want that I talk myself out of it. *facepalm* But I still haunt other people's journals so they don't forget me. *G*

And on a side note, Ori appreciated Dean. lol

*huggles & kisses* ♥

LOL! I wondered how he was doing! Tell him me and Dean said hi! :D

*HUUUUGS*

I can't tell you how many posts I compose and delete everyday! ♥ Are you still reading? Or just kind of noodling around?

I know what you mean about the dead journals. The lines and birthday reminders just make it sadder, but somehow it makes me more determined to remain, to keep the old fannish flame burning :)

I write a lot of Sam/Dean and RPF, but I haven't for a while, been too busy trying to get the life/work/lj balanc right, and failing miserably ;)

I'm glad that it makes you want to stay. I hate to think I'll end up standing here in the Big Old Echoey Space (my original lj name), going hello? all alone, lol!

Ach, that work/life/LJ balance...it's though, and shifts around constantly. Whenever I think I've got it nailed - bam -
something tips it over again. *sigh*

Mind you, all this was easier back in the day when I was a young thing... ;D

I was going through my user info the other day, and looking at my flist and it made me so sad to see all the names with a strike through. So sad, but I'm not going anywhere. I'll be here to the very end.

Right? I had to get rid of those strike-throughs, they were depressing me.

I'm glad you're hanging on--I'm going to stay as long as I can. I tried, with DW, but it's not as satisfying as our place here.

Still here, sweetie, and doing my best to be more present. I can't leave lj, no matter what. It's been our home for so long .

I've not been on LJ as long as some of you, but I've noticed a decline in the number of posts and comments. Some days it feels like there's only a handful of us posting anything! But I'm going to persevere as I don't like the DW format, and I love all my flisties here!

Summergen has had some amazing fics this year, but of course that's all gen not wincest!

PS Beautiful Dean gif *swoons*

I'm thrilled to death anytime anyone posts well-written, thoughtful fic, whether it's gen or wincest! Scrolling through AO3 can be a mine field anymore, there's so much stuff that makes me cry--poorly written or plain old boring smut.

Isn't it amazing?
