+ I am kinda sad not a whole lot of you are on LJ anymore, but I get it. The site has not been user-friendly for a number of years, and people need to do what people need to do. But LJ and DW are, I think, the only platforms that invite intimate conversations about our daily lives. Twitter is good for snippets and random thoughts that pop into your head, sure, but not conducive to lengthy conversations without feeling like you'd break Twitter, and/or annoying if you have to go over the character limits, and Tumblr is unwieldy re: personal texts, and writing, imho. Tumblr's mostly good for graphics and music. Not that Tumblr /can't/ be used for text posts, but the archive system is shit and I can never reply to people's post because the site is not made for such things. (I mean, I /can/ reply but it entails me going to my dashboard, and I never scroll through my dashboard anymore because I'd never get out of tumblr if I did that, so now if I want to reblog/like things on tumblr, I go to the individual tumblrs themselves and that's not conducive to replying, is what I meant). I have friended a number of you lovely people on DW, so there's that. What I'm saying is, I'll be here, if people find themselves wandering back around or visiting for the first time. I'll be like that one grandmother who loves to hang out on the porch, and wave at random people passing by.

+ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie is getting a reboot! I can't see this news as being anything other than awesome because a whole new generation of Power Rangers fans! What's there not to like?

  3. Your best story title and why: well, I'm partial to Insperatus because it's in Latin. My titles always end up being random and/or inspired by song titles and poetry so I can't take credit for most of them.
  4. Your worst story title and why: Like and Love. It feels uninspired and kinda silly.
  5. The most popular pairing and/or fandom you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing and/or fandom written by everyone on AO3): I'd say Teen Wolf (39941 works).
  6. The rarest pairing and/or fandom you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing and/or fandom written by everyone on AO3): The rarest pairing is: Jessica Jones/Jamie Madrox, with only my one work showing up; the rarest fandom: ALIAS (comics) with 18 works
  7. The most popular OT3/moresome you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3): Duke Crocker/Audrey Parker/Nathan Wuornos (78 works)
  8. The rarest OT3/moresome you've written for (by the standard of how many stories exist for that pairing written by everyone on AO3): Catherine Chandler/Vincent Keller/Tess Vargas (2 works)
  9. First story and latest story you posted to AO3: First: The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name (SGA), last: always love (hockey RPF)
  10. Your top ten pairings on AO3:
    Rodney McKay/John Sheppard (11)
    Hunter Bradley/Cameron Watanabe (7)
    Carlton Lassiter/Shawn Spencer (6)

lol, we just talked about what's not to like about the new PR movie on tonight's podcast!

Basically, our fear is just that- that a whole bunch of people who will love the movie will influx to the fandom, and that older (mostly male) fans will scare them away with "real fan" talk. "Well, you haven't see all the series so your not a real fan!" "People who have only seen the movie aren't true fans!"

And we're really worried that a lot of fanon spaces are going to become unsafe for new and old fans alike because of the division.

So there's that.

Also lol I still love DW and LJ, we'll be grannies on the porch together!

I will never stop mourning LJ's heyday. Tumblr lacks pretty much all ability to interact in a low key way for me. Which is a massive bummer. I WILL SHARE THE PORCH WITH YOU, MAYBE?
