Hellooooooooooo out there...
Contrary to persistent rumours, I am not dead. This journal is pretty close to it, though. Is anyone out there still reading this thing?


::crickets::


Yeah, that's what I thought.

Nevertheless, in an attempt to revive my long-dormant writing skills, I have finished a WIP: the third and last chapter of Death's Second Self has been posted, back-dated by six!OMG years so that it sits next to the first two chapters. (Six years! How did that happen?)

Anyone who read the first two installments has undoubtedly forgotten what happened in them (I know I had), so clicking on this will deliver you to all three: Death's Second Self

I'm feeling all motivated now. Maybe I'll finish another one someday.

Hey! I'm glad I'm not the only one with languishing WIPs from six years ago. Maybe there's hope for me yet!

More for you than me! At least you're on LJ more often than once a year.

I'm amazed that I can still remember cut tags and whatnot.

Why has everyone gone to Dreamwidth?

Not everyone has, and most of those who have crosspost (that's what I do). But a lot of people did because LJ has been more than usually annoying over the last year or so.

Okay, so how do you crosspost? ::is dim::
rahirah From: rahirah Date: February 4th, 2013 10:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
OK, first you have to set up a DW account. Once you have one, go to your account settings, and click on the "Other Sites" tab. Click the Add New Account link, and fill in your LJ account information. Then you can adjust your crosspost settings to your liking. You can either allow comments on both the DW and LJ version of the post, or you can disable comments on the LJ side (in which case it will automatically append a "This was originally posted on DW, click here to comment there!" link. (You can customize the link to look however you want it to look.) Warning: doing this will send some people on LJ into a major snit and they will refuse to comment at all. You can only crosspost from DW to LJ, not the other way around.

At present, Buffy fandom is still much more active on LJ than on DW - most of the people who have left seem to have gone to Tumblr, and as Tumblr is the Hot New Thing, that's where most of the new fans go. Since I am old and cranky, Tumblr does not appeal to me.

I must be older than you--I don't even know what Tumblr is! I may be crankier too. I made a DW account, but it remains to be seen if I'll actually use it. LJ is my big, squashy, comfy chair when it comes to fandom, and I don't wanna get up. ::pouts::

People having a snit on LJ? Not possible! ;-)

Thank you for the instructions. Can we just go back to using paper now?

I think most people have gone to twitter or facebook
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:38 am (UTC) (Link)
I tried Twitter. It's just too few words!

Hello back! How's the family? How's Bella?

LJ has been "difficult" quite a bit lately so a lot of us who still post on LJ also have Dreamwidth homes now.
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 2nd, 2013 05:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hi! Bella's good. I'm watching her and one of her puppies, Kiva, run around in the back yard as I type. :-) Well, Kiva's a year and a half old now, so not so much a puppy anymore. I think I'll still be calling her that when she's nine years old, though.

Sorry to hear that LJ has been difficult. The more things change...

Hello you! Good to see you. I've been here all along. *g*

And oh, I have fic still needing to be finished... /o\
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 2nd, 2013 05:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've missed you guys! Unfinished fic just hangs on forever, doesn't it? This was didn't actually need that much work, but my other WIP is gonna take longer. I should see you again in another decade or so...
elisi From: elisi Date: February 2nd, 2013 05:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Unfinished fic is evil. I have fifty thousands words of epic AtS WIP (never posted) waiting for the other half to be completed. Don't know that I'll ever get there as I have so many other things to work on...
yourlibrarian From: yourlibrarian Date: February 2nd, 2013 05:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nice to see you around!
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:37 am (UTC) (Link)
Still feels like home, y'know?
fenchurche From: fenchurche Date: February 2nd, 2013 07:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay! Although I knew you weren't dead, 'cause I see you over on "that other site."

And more fic to read, even better!!
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:37 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, I spend way too much time on FB. That's where all the Toller folks are. But you know what? LJ still feels like home to me. Man, I've missed this place.
fenchurche From: fenchurche Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:51 am (UTC) (Link)
I know exactly what you mean... I generally tried to keep up with what people were posting over here, but had definitely gotten out of the habit of posting myself. Doing this photo-a-day thing has been great for jumpstarting my LJ posting.
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:58 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh God, I don't even remember how to post pics here. It's easy to post to FB from my phone, but I don't think there's an LJ app for that.
rahirah From: rahirah Date: February 3rd, 2013 12:24 am (UTC) (Link)
EEEEEE! I saw your fic post and came here to see if you were back, and you were!
desoto_hia873 From: desoto_hia873 Date: February 3rd, 2013 03:36 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm very excited that I made you EEEEEEE! You are my fanfic idol. :-)
cordykitten From: cordykitten Date: February 3rd, 2013 01:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Me! I'm still here :))
