I ran across an entry by someone who was reminiscing about the beginnings of Livejournal, back when you had to have an invitation to join. Mine was from [ profile] untappedbeauty back in 2002. I had just discovered slash that summer and began posting stories to a Lotrips yahoo group in August ( this one, actually, which I'm not going to reread because it'll make me want to crawl under a rock). She had the most gorgeous Sean Bean icon. I don't think she's around here much anymore, but then I haven't been either. I keep thinking about how much I miss journaling and then I reminded myself that there was a remedy for that.

Hey! Ha, I can't even remember how I joined. I think it was around 2002, though. Theatrical_Muse was the first community I joined and wrote for. Fun times! Met some cool people. :)

Hey! How are you? I'm always happy when I see you on Tumblr :D

I had joined a group called Contrelemontre, which was writing prompts under a time limit. It was good fun and still going now...not strong, but there are entries from this year so better than me!

Oh, I'm pretty good. Hanging in there. :) Writing muse being a pain in the ass at the moment, but I live in hope, heh. I wrote a couple of things for contrelemontre! I miss the super active LJ days, but I have to admit, I enjoy Tumblr a lot -- IV drip for fandom junkies for sure.

How're things with you?

And now I'm thinking about the absolute perfection of your Remus and must plan a reread of your epic fic. :)

Tumblr really really works for me some days when I don't have the energy for anything else...which was essentially the last year. I can't quite forgive it for making me trip and fall into the Supernatural fandom though... That's a fandom that will completely suck you in. I've drawn about a hundred lines in the fandom sand about how far I would go and crossed every one. For the first time since I was in Lotrips, I'm seriously considering going to a con, which I actually think might be madness.

I really wish I had finished that story. I think our writing muses must have fled the country together :D It's been ages since I wrote anything. I decided that one way to deal with it would be to take it easy and not beat myself up over it, not push or force it. Of course, the way I actually chose to deal with it was to sign up for a big bang this summer.

Yikes, Big Bang Huh? Lotrips?

At least you made it to that kiss! *sighs at the memory*

Supernatural, actually, which I've never written before. The glow has worn off actually, so likely I'll drop out. There are, apparently, over 500 writers who signed up. Crazy! I have an idea for an original story that I think I want to pursue instead.

I was too shy to ask for an invite in 2003, so I actually paid for the membership, and it was so worth it. Good times.

Definitely a lot of good times <3
