Seen this all over my dwircle, and well, today is mine, so here you go:

When I created my journal on DW, I was determined to make it my home right away. My history with both LJ and IJ had been rather short (LJ) and not so happy (IJ), and I was all for making a new start.

In 2006 I joined LJ after much persuasion by [personal profile] kennahijja. Until then I was getting by with mailing lists, yahoo groups and reading on archives. It took a bit, but I found journal style fandom to my liking. When HP fandom did their mass exodus to IJ in 2007, I followed them over. After all, spending one year on LJ hardly made me feel any loyalty or nostalgia for the site.

And I liked it well enough on IJ at first, so I bought myself several permanent accounts and a ton of extra icons for very cheap. Fandom life around me was very active, and I had a lot of fun. Until comment rot started to befall my journal. For whatever reason comments simply vanished. Some older ones, but some also freshly posted, right during the time it took me to make a new one.

That problem got magically fixed in 2009, right about when people had started moving over to DW. By then it was too late for me. I had lost several hundred comments and grown slightly bitter about it. I left IJ for DW for good, and although I decided to cross-post to IJ, it was more a thing of backing up my entries instead of inviting discussion over there.

So, my journaling history looks like this:

2006 - 2007 LJ (one year)
2007 - 2009 IJ (two years)
2009 - 2017 DW (eight years)

Yeah, I've been more than twice as long on DW than on both LJ and IJ together.

21st-Apr-2017 09:51 pm - 3 great cruelty-free mascaras for sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers
I have dry, sensitive eyes that tear at the slightest provocation. I also wear contact lenses. And while my lashes are fairly long and naturally grow in an upward direction, they've become very light in color and not as thick as they used to be as I've gotten older. All of which adds up to me being someone for whom mascara makes a big difference, but is almost impossible to wear comfortably. Add to that the fact that I will only buy cruelty-free makeup and can't tolerate makeup with gluten, and it's amazing I have one brand of mascara to recommend, let alone three. (Please note: None of these are affiliate links, and I buy my own makeup.) Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara. Let's start with the best mascara I've ever used, and certainly the most expensive. "Faux Cils"...
21st-Apr-2017 06:11 pm - Linds tells cops B/J have drugs/Linds moves to artist colony *FOUND*
Hi all! I'm looking for 2 fics that involve B/J getting custody of Gus.

1. In the first one Lindsay (or maybe Mel?) calls the cops and tells them there are drugs at Britin, and they come search and find nothing. It's during a custody fight of some sort.

2. Lindsay takes off while Mel's pregnant, and B/J take care of her. Lindsay comes back briefly, but then decides to move to an artist's colony. She gives up her rights to Gus, and there's a scene where she's leaving and Gus is watching from his bedroom window.

It's possible these are the same fic, and I'll have a 'duh' moment when someone reminds me which fic(s) it is.


Both found! #1 is Finality and Life Choices by Luv_Sam. #2 is Broken Dreams by Julesmonster.

Hi Lovely Mods,
Posting this here rather than PM-img y'all since I figure others might be wondering as well.

Are you guys going to create a Dreamwidth mirror account for this invaluable QAF resource?
You know, in case the apocalypse hits.

Much love,
20th-Apr-2017 06:37 pm - Random Fandom Ramblings
So, my tendency towards fandom monogamy sometimes really messes with my enjoyment of new (or simply different) source material, and that can be pretty annoying.

I buy a lot of DVDs (often second hand and very cheap, thanks medimops! And hell, I'm not even going to mention all the stuff I dled), and there's quite a number of movies and shows in my collection that I haven't watched yet. Should be awesome, right? Lots of stuff to watch, yay!

But every time I start something new I run the risk that I completely fall for the new thing. To the point that my current love kinda fades into oblivion. Well, that sounds a bit too strong for what really happens, but yeah. When I'm riding on a fandom high, I'm often very reluctant to watch something new, because that feeling that I just enjoyed so much could stop in the course of a single episode of another show.

It's not a conscious decision on my part, of course, and it's not that I fall out of love with my other fandom(s), exactly. But if I really want to enjoy gorging myself on art/fic/meta/vids/whatever for my current main fandom, I need to be very careful what media I consume during that time. guessed it already. That weekend DVD binge with [personal profile] thistlechild wasn't really helpful to me in that regard. Only consolation is that I was already throwing side glances at my collection to decide what to watch next, because production of new fanworks for my current obession are starting to trickle away, and it's getting harder and harder finding quality stuff I haven't seen/read yet among the older works.

*sigh* Let me tell you, I like my fandom butterfly phases a lot better than my monogamous ones!
