Sad Rant

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. ♥

I stared at my long lost Ichi/Ishi fic last night, the one I started six months ago, and it's nearly freaking done, but I CANNOT finish it. Not yet. I will, I swear I will, because it was a prompt for someone and I will not fink out.

SIX MONTHS. I feel like I forgot how to write. I've certainly gone longer than six months without really writing, but seriously, right now I feel like my machinery is broken. There's a spanner in the works. It's frustrating, and made worse by the fact that my toddler-like writing self is actually ENJOYING being a whiny bitch and turning her nose up at everything.

RL is kind of a mess at the moment, and I've spent so much time trying to take care of so many people that I sort of forgot about myself, and I am aware that on some level I need to try to figure out what I need right now. I got a new layout. New season, new layout, hopefully, eventually, new fic.
