Hello all! Thought I'd post something here specifically for Dreamwidth. I talked with a lot of old LJ folks at MISTI and I guess the consensus is abandon ship. Some of us stuck it out through various previous exoduses and Strikethrough, Boldthrough, and so on, which is why I set up this mirror to my LJ so many years ago.

My goal is to repost everything here that is only on LJ. There is some stuff I am not sure I want to have on AO3 right now given my current profile as a pro writer, specifically the non-con/dub-con and Malfoycest. But I also don't want it to disappear from the Internet forever if LJ starts deleting it. The fabulous ladies of the Snarry Suite at MISTI-Con pretty much hammered on me not to let anything disappear. :-) (Thanks [personal profile] dementordelta, [personal profile] lilyseyes, and [personal profile] alisanne!)

I did an import of all the same friends names from LJ to here a few years back but anyone more recent I'll still have to go an find. If you find me here, friend and I'll friend back!

Just to be a conformist for once in my life? What the heck, I figured I'd try it.

So now I have journals at InsaneJournal and GreatestJournal. Friend me over there if you do too and I'll friend back.

Right now it looks like about 70% of my flist also made backup journals at GJ. And about half of them did IJ as well. Thus far I haven't found anyone who only did IJ. Interesting.

Xylodemon started a 'registry' on each site where you can post to say 'I'm here!' and list your fandom interests and such. I ended up adding people to my GJ and Ij flists who I didn't know through LJ from reading their listings! How ironic is that?

Here's a link to Xylo's "Fandom Displacement Friending Frenzy" on IJ: http://xylodemon.insanejournal.com/328.html

And here on GJ:
http://xylodemon.greatestjournal.com/1045.html

I now return to sulking over the fact that no one commented on the "By Any Other Name" rewrite because they are too busy creating new journals to read fic... or maybe because that story sucked anyway. *sigh*

Please go ahead and friend me at ravenna_c_tan over at GJ.

Purely precautionary measures at this point. I still plan to keep this LJ my primary fandom and fic posting journal. Y'know. Until they pry it out of my hands.

I've got about 50 people friended over there already:

amanuensis1, annella, anthimaeria, ariadneelda, calyxess, celandineb, charlotteschaos, cluegirl, coffeejunkii, cordelia_v, dementordelta, emmagrant01, enchanted_jae, femmequixotic, fleshdress, frayach, furi0sity, gmth, iulia_linnea, jadzia7667, kennahijja, ldybastet, lillithium, maeglinyedi, mijan, miss_bowtruckle, nomeci, nqdonne, owensmom, painless_j, pushdragon, quilt_stitcher, reallycorking, rexluscus, roedhunt, rosenoire, rosesanguina, sansa1970, scrtkpr, silentauror01, snarry_fan7, son_of_darkness, sulky_rhino, svartalfur, switchknife, themostepotente, twistedmiracle, underlucius, viverra_libro

Please comment here though with your GJ name if you're not on the above list! I don't have the wherewithal right now to look for every single one of the people I have friended individually...

ETA: I also did it at Insane Journal. Same username. Looks like more people are going to GJ, with a smaller percentage also doing IJ. Lots of "just in case" journals. I've friended about 30 people over there, too. :)

Kee-rist. Looked into my f-list today and of the first 20 things there, 14 were about the ongoing deletion of LJs and whether people are going to GreatestJournal, JournalFen, or what. 6 were about other topics... only 3 having any relation to HP or Deathly Hallows! Yeesh.

So where am I on the great LJ-or-not-LJ debate? Right now, I guess I'm staying until I see more of what goes on. A lot of folks are going to GJ, but there's no guarantee that once fandom reaches a critical mass there, that they won't start attacking the exact same things as LJ. [livejournal.com profile] twocorpses has started an LJ-like site, in beta-test now, that would be fandom run and fandom supported called Scribblit.

The real question for me is would I not only abandon this journal, my fic journal, but my RL one as well in protest over SixApart's dickheadedness? Literally my entire social set has LJs and ... sigh...

I guess for now I'll do what I've always done... and just keep posting fic. In fact, I'm going to post a rewrite later today, along with new author's notes. *sigh*
