in all the games you've played, who is the best villian? Up until now, I would've said Killerman but Achi's end motive was so damn funny that she almost won me over

The main villain, as always, is the uncaring will of fate and the unchanging passage of time.

PSH! #diaryland

Still do. Just about.

I still do but had to friends-lock it. But I miss it a lot. :(((

Haaaaad?

I don’t use it as much now because my friends are all in different fandoms, but if you joined fandom only in the Tumblr/Twitter era YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE MISSING.

1. Threaded comments that don’t have to be replied to with a whole separate post

2. Profile pages so you could find out about a person and also check out their followers to see if you know people in common/find other people into what you’re into

3. Communities for fic, and newsletter communities for fandoms that rounded up daily news (actor stuff, pics, videos, etc)

4. Much better signal to noise ratio (not seeing the same thing 15 times or having to install xkit just to make your dash readable and filter out fandoms you aren’t in)

5. Just a way, way more grounded sense of where and who people are, instead of shouting into a crowded room all the time

This is my third go-around with Tumblr and fandom, and it’s only manageable now because I’m following hardly anyone (sorry guys). I really cannot wait until somebody makes something that combines the ease of image-posting on Tumblr with the actual content of LJ, because I feel like this place encourages you to be silent.

Shhh, don’t make an original text post, no one wants to read that, especially if it’s just about your personal life (which you couldn’t lock/filter anyhow). Shhh, don’t add text to that reblog, just hide your comments down in the tags, where people have to scroll to see them. Shhh, all you can contribute is a picture of an actor that’s probably already been posted with six different edits to the tag. Just reblog, baby.

I love fandom and fans and it makes me so sad, too, to see what’s been my culture for going on 20 years now get eroded and lost. I don’t know where fandom will be in another 20 years but I’m guessing the history of my chunk of it (Usenet, mailing lists, personal websites, LJ) won’t get carried on.

This can’t be how it continues, this movement towards a model of vocal producers and silent consumers. That’s not fandom. 

Accurate.

I mean, I loved lists, but I loved that LJ helped balance the dynamic of creator/consumer, where the consumer had a voice (I was largely a creator at that point, and am largely a consumer now, sadly) above and beyond, “Wow, great story!” They’d talk about the show, the fandom, and all that jazz, and the lines were nicely blurred, and some of the voices I respected the most never wrote, or drew, or vidded. 

And thinking back, they may have thought they weren’t creators, but that’s just not true. 

They were creating community, and it was awesome. 

II was just thinking about this last night! I still have LJ, and I still post to it. (The StuntHusband gave me a permanent account, waaaay back when.)

Threaded comments + replies, and FILTERS. Those are the things that will keep me on LJ, forever and ever.  

I only check it occassionally for friends comms and RP ads. I haven’t posted to it in many years though.
