Flist Poll

Because I am cheap poor not a paid/plus DW account holder, I have to make a little request -- I'm doing a flist poll over on LJ where I have polling ability and I'd love to hear from those of you who exclusively read me over here on DW.

The poll is here.  Mostly it has to do with where you prefer to read fic, as I gear up to post the fic monster currently in beta; I aim to please, so I want to make this as accessible to as many peeps as possible!

This journal is new and shiny.  I'm scared to peel the cellophane back, but I guess as a "beta" user I should really be using this thing and helping our lovely admin team figure out how everything works!

First things first -- a little wee bit about me:

I've been writing fanfiction, primarily slash, since 2003.  I started off in the Smallville fandom, then migrated to Stargate Atlantis in 2005, with a few detours along the way into CW RPS, Supernatural, and maybe two other places.  My writing is generally a little comedic, though I've been known to do the angst thing too.  My website is here: http://toomuchplor.wordpress.com/ and I'm toomuchplor over on LJ as well.  (In a past life I was known as rose_emily.)

Though I've written some fairly lengthy WIP-style stories I don't often do so anymore, as I don't trust myself to finish them and I hate leaving people hanging.  I have an occasionally very demanding RL as a professional musician/administrator and as a result I may periodically disappear from this journal for weeks at a time.

Next item:

My plans for using this journal are solidifying.  I will crosspost on DW and LJ, at least to begin with, because I like the idea of archiving fic and comments and such on DW.  If I should ever decide to go to one journal exclusively over another I will say so, in both places.  I *very* rarely do flocked posts, so that is not a consideration.  So if you're considering subscribing here, you may want to consider this in order to avoid duplicate posts every time I post.  I'm not sure yet if I will only have comments on one of the two journals.  We'll see how that evolves.

And finally, "friending"/subscriptions:

I've never been one to get worked up over people adding and removing me from their flists and this will not change here.  What I do care about is how much I have to wade through on my reading list (rlist?) and flist, and how much of *that* will be interesting to me based on divergent interests, etc.  If you've subscribed to me here and we're mutual friends on LJ I'll automatically subscribe in return and grant access.  Everyone else, I will be skimming your DW journal from time to time.  As on LJ, if I hear a lot from you on my own entries I'm much more likely to add you to my reading list.  In any case, please know that my decisions to add/subscribe/whatever are not meant as any kind of judgment.  I simply have to limit the length of my reading list for my own sanity.  (This has become an issue for me in the past, when I flocked a formerly-RL LJ and had to mutually friend about 400 people and -- whoa.  Too much information, dudes.)

If you are new here (subscribing to me) or if you just have a new name, drop me a comment here and introduce yourself!  I want to get to know you!

RL, Dreamwidth, Kings, and Spring Clean-Up

Last weekend we had a major concert (two, actually) and it was lovely if completely exhausting. So far this week I've spent one day watching baby niece #2 (and subsequently engaging in the Epic Battle Of "YES YOU DAMN WELL DO NEED YOUR DIAPER CHANGED, SCREAMING CHILD") who is now 13 months old, gone to a staff meeting for my church job, and had a very brief informal meeting with my boss for my other job. Not so productive, but such is the life of an artist, right?

Back in fandom land, I'm torn on the whole Dreamwidth thing -- it sounds awesome, but I'm finally using my LJ enough to justify reinvesting in a paid account, and I don't want to do that *and* buy a membership on DW. Which is sad, I know, but -- again -- artist. Very little spare change floating around my chequing account here. So I probably have to make up my mind by the 30th. Mostly I just want more than 6 icons again. I miss icons!

I've been continuing to watch Kings and enjoying it mightily, but haven't found the inspiration to write any fic in the fandom. I wish I could, because Jack/David would be hot like whoa and, to be honest, I haven't landed on any fic in the fandom that really works for me yet. I have great faith that it could exist, however -- I haven't been looking *that* hard.

Spring has finally arrived here. I can see a narrow band of grass on the edge of my lawn, maybe 1" total, but more importantly, I can also see approximately 1,000,000 winter poos that my dog has lovingly left under mounds of snow over the past six months. Yay for spring! *goes to get a shovel and a garbage bag*

In Which I Am Not Dead

Okay, here's the deal.

Should I be in a tragic or scary situation, I really seriously doubt that anyone would tell my flist about it for at least a couple of days. This isn't an invitation to panic every time I drop off the face of LJ (because god knows I do that very regularly), but just a heads-up. The three people on my flist who I speak to in RL are also RL friends (and were pre-LJ). If I were seriously ill or injured, I can bet that all three of them wouldn't even think of posting about it on LJ, at least not in the first flush of knowing. They'd all be talking to each other and to my family and they'd know that it was more important to keep in touch with the situation than to apprise the rest of the universe of it.

Then, when they had time and knowledge, and felt it was okay to do so, [livejournal.com profile] iykwim would probably post on my behalf because she could access my iBook easily and is the only same-city-dwelling friend with whom I would entrust my computer.

Now, back to writing my [livejournal.com profile] undermistletoe fic. Crap!


In which I am heartless. Finally.

Wow, this is actually my first big flist-related wank, and I've been around for like 3 years now! Bravo to the brave few, y'all. That shit pinged my weird-o-meter *instantly* and I'm glad you guys had the cajones to go all sleuth-y and figure things out.

(I really don't think of myself as a cynical person, but I do pride myself on having a bullshit detector that's, like, factory-installed, and precious little patience for bullshit. And I figure this is like a rite of passage for me as a fannish person because I think I've passed the mystical stage of starry sweet politeness to one and all. Not that I'm going to embrace universal rudeness and cruelty -- just that I'm done with the pretense of being lovable and darling 100% of the time. I'm not really that nice. Shocking, isn't it? Heh.)

(And now I'm totally wondering who on my flist actually thinks of me as a nice person. Maybe the act hasn't been that convincing after all! *g* Hrm, how about a poll?:

[Poll #879562])

Also in the land of Random Pointlessness, a meme taken from [livejournal.com profile] yin_again:

Copy a line from any of my fics, post it in the comments section, and I have to guess which fic it's from.

I promise I won't cheat. Fic is (mostly) here or on this lj.

Oooh lala

I have a new layout, thanks to digging around on the links pages of those with pretty journals and the (thus discovered) clever stylings of [livejournal.com profile] faceon.

I suppose I should write something worthy of the prettiness now. *g*

New layout!

Actually, I don't like it so very much but the old one was giving me headaches, so yay!

So I've finally taken the plunge and started friending people on this flist. Back when I started writing on [livejournal.com profile] rose_emily, I friended everyone who friended me, which is how I ended up with a 600-some person flist, of whom I read only about 50 people. I don't know about the rest of you, but I would have to quit a bunch of my jobs to actually keep up with a 600-person flist. It's just not possible.

So I am determined to do things differently this time, so I've started off just by friending a few of the people I already read on a regular basis. I'd like to be reading the people who are, y'know, reading *me*, so I will start browsing the rest of y'all as I get time and will add/remove friends as I find my interest piqued. Please do not take this personally. I am choosing to do this rather than creating multiple filters as I have on my other LJ, because I simply can't keep up with everyone on my flist, even over here at Plor. By corollary, you are welcome to add/remove me as you like. Just know that I have no plans to lock down any part of this LJ, so you're not missing anything if I haven't friended you back.

That is all. *sweeping gesture* Good day.


Ooo. Ahh.

I meant to post this last night, but LJ was being very pissy.

New LJ layout.

I have officially wasted the entire day! *fist in air*

And now my roommate seems to be doing the dishes when it's my turn.

*tries to care and fails*

So, what do y'all think? Should this LJ become a community? Not because I want to share access, but because it's really annoying signing in and out of two different LJs, but I do like having all my fic unlocked in a separate place.
