I am really sad about LJ and the people who are leaving. I know some will continue to cross-post here, but not all the people (and communities) I follow will, which sucks. I know people are angry and disappointed in LJ, and I'm not trying to defend LJ by any means. I'm just selfishly annoyed that things aren't going to be the same.

Unfortunately, I have zero interest in starting over somewhere else. I tried DW (different username), and even though people swear it's just like LJ, I can't make it work very well. I honestly don't like it, format-wise or otherwise. Maybe it's just me. I don't know.

I get it; change is inevitable. But that doesn't mean I have to like it. :(

Edit: I was in a really bad mood last night when I wrote this. I had a RL crisis going on that knocked me sideways and maybe it's silly (okay, probably very silly) but I felt like fandom was kind of slipping away and that I wouldn't be able to keep up. Anyway. My RL crisis has been averted, so I'm out of my OMG-everything-is-bad-and-will-never-be-good-again-headspace. I just want to say that I'm really grateful for all the fun and good bits going on in this little corner of the internet and I'm so happy to be able to squee with all of you. ♥

what comms are ditching? I can understand why this is a huge deal to the RPers, and it's no fun if you follow anon memes, but I'm not planning on leaving. (Tho I dislike the idea of giving a non-responsive LJ any more money.) :P

CL Bleach started at DW, and there were a lot more posts on their DW side than LJ. :(

But yeah, I just wrote an edit to my post from last night. I was feeling really down and the LJ thing just was the last straw. I think things will even out (at least I hope so.)

Truth to tell I don't always love LJ's ways of handling problems, but I am very grateful to LJ for getting me in touch with cool people like you. :3

People are leaving LJ? O.o
I haven't been here for a few days now due to BUSY!times, so I wouldn't know, but... uh, I'm not going anywhere. Definitely going to stay here. I'm too old for DW. *shuffles and grumbles*

Upon further reflection (and also upon calming down from last night's total epic freakout) I am realizing that things will probably be okay in LJ-land.

I am glad you're here, and so glad that LJ brings us Uryuu fangirls together in mutual squee. :3
