Hi everyone!

Hoo boy, once again I am really far behind, because of the usual things (headaches every day; moving yet again) but also good things (applying to an it's-a-long-shot-but-would-be-extremely-exciting-if-I-got-it job opportunity that came up very suddenly; also just completed the first draft of the novella-length fic I've been working on since December).

BUT. When I've had very brief chances to glance at LJ and my friends feed, it does look like pretty much everyone is making the shift to Dreamwidth, which makes me very relieved. I know my corner of fandom is a tiny corner, but I have treasured it! It seems like nearly everyone is going to rebuild on Dreamwidth and that's heartening. Not everything will survive, I'm sure (for example, the crowd I interacted with when I first started participating actively in fandom is no longer really active on LJ anyway, so I guess that aspect is gone) but it sounds like even comms are reforming over on Dreamwidth, so, yay! In the spirit of things, I think I should sign up for Holmestice. :-) YAY!

I did make my Dreamwidth journal – same username, HERE – when the LJ TOS first came out, but haven't had a chance to import anything yet or get going over there. I will, though, and I'll come find y'all and friend (or whatever the equivalent terminology is there – new things to learn!). I think it's all going to be okay, and I'm glad.

I'll probably switch to posting at Dreamwidth but have it crosspost to LJ, at least for a while, as we see how things go.

Onward and upward!

(Edited to add: I just realized I probably sound obnoxiously chirpy about this catastrophe that hit us as a fandom, or at the very least bizarrely chirpy about it. I have the dubious benefit of having been too snowed under with other life stuff to do anything more than watch in horrified passivity as it all unfolded, and am now reaping the benefits of showing up later, when other people have already sorted out most of the mess. For this I am very grateful.)
