Hi everyone. *waves* kendas
Yes, I'm still alive, although most of you have probably forgotten who this person on lj is anymore, lol. It hardly feels like half a year, and I don't even know where the time has flown.
Well, I'm back on LJ temporarily, although I don't know how long I'll be staying. Going back to university has really been a trying journey and it's been pushing my limits in every way. Still, it's a necessary step and I'm prepared to gulp down another few years of no sleep if thats what gets me somewhere in this society.
Thanks to everyone who sent me emails the last couple of months, just to check up on me. Really, from the bottom of my heart, thank-you. You guys are really great and I was very touched by your concern. Apologies to my late reply. I've been more or less living under a rock in some masochistic self-made prison for the last half a year, lol, so I've completely lost contact with anything remotely electronic. What's a tv again? lol.
I especially owe an apology to
, who asked me to beta and I didn't get the email and reply untl 2 months after. *hangs head in shame* Sorry about that hun...
Also, thanks to mandya06
, for sticking with me and for all her emails and nudges etc. the last couple of months. I've missed you like crazy! And I really want to hear all about Europe and this new boy of yours, gorgeous!
On another note,
It seems like the LJ banning has gotten even stricter in recent months. Ive noticed alot of ppl f-locking their journals and even more communities shutting down, especially the more adult lj journals. It's really too bad. One of the great things I loved on here was the freedom of expression, the acceptance, and interactiveness of everyone here. There's alot of freaky shit in the HP fandom and pairings that might be generally distasteful but it's one of the great things I love about this fandom, that everyone is so accepting and you can write anything here and most ppl will accept it. So yeah, even though I can see why the LJ staff did what they did, it's still sad to see some of that creatively placed under a scrutinizing eye and a strongly secured lock.
I'm not sure yet if I will be f-locking. Probably not, since I'm not a prolific writer, especially not in the smut genre, but I can't guarantee there will be no smut, since I've promised Mandy I will write her a smutty Tom/Minerva. It will be going under f-lock. I will usually friend anyone, but given the new rules on LJ, I would prefer it if you were over the age of 16, before I friend back. If you are not, contact me, and we'll work it out somehow.
That being said, I've been getting alot of reviews, emails, comments on this lj about Tempora Mutantur and updates etc. And about the whole flaming incident that happened beforehand. There's alot to be said about it all, so I'll put it under LJ cut.
Anyway, there is a new layout, as you may have noticed. I chose the theme of butterflies b/c they symbolize a rebirth of sorts. I thought it was fitting, since spring is almost here and I've come back from the dead after six-seven long months, lol. Cheers.
