anime - soul - friendship

State of my fandoms and my LJ

Earlier this year, I'd been feeling rather disconnected from the flist. While there are still HP posts that pique my interest (particularly on the movie, which is always interesting to keep track of, lol), I'm not really reading H/D at the moment.

The shift away from HP and a lot of people jumping into Merlin had me skipping a lot of flist posts recently. It effected posting too (daily spammage disappeared in Feb). I came to realise that I needed to find that fandom spark again. Looking up the popular users amongst friends, LJ shows me a majority of HP fandom ljs and comms- which isn't where I'm at right now.

So I've been slowly changing the flist to reflect my current reading habits - which is pretty much in between fandoms but with greater focus on dramas and animaga (and a bit of Naruto and Avatar love too). And original slash :)

I'll probably swing back to H/D fics at some point - while the interest has cooled, its NOT gone. But for the time being, I'm happy to be frollicking about :3

If y'all have been finding my posts increasingly unfamiliar (especially those who stuck around for the HP posts and H/D recs), I totally understand and well, everyday is friending/defriending amnesty day here ^^

And lurking is never an issue - I suck at crawling out from under my rock and commenting too XD

I'm somewhat the same, just my focus is now mostly on Merlin and Naruto. But I'm sure I'd get back on the H/D love when the Worldcup starts. :)

Your posts aren't becoming unfamiliar to me, so I'll still be lurking around for a long while. :P Oh, and I've updated my DA Naruto faves and DA NaruSasu Faves with your many of your art recs so thank you for that!

I think the HP bug will probably bite when the movie gets released XD Frustration at all the things they change will make me go running for great H/D fanfic (and probably catch up with hd_hols fics haha)

Yaaaay! Though we do share the Naruto!love so that might be a factor haha. AND YOU HAVE DEVART COLLECTIONS ♥ Must now go check it out *_*
We share other interests so...:DD HP is one of those fandoms that I return to all the time. I just get distracted by the shiny sometimes *g*
My favorite reading habits of yours are the random! The other day you linked this fic that was octo-merman (octoman? Manopus?)/professor on an Undisclosed Isle. I was all WHERE DO I FIND MORE and WHY WASN'T THIS IS MY LIFE BEFORE?

I could not give you up, lest I miss such things. For that reason and others, you rock.

<3
Word! I've found that my love for H/D ebbs and flows over time as well. Currently, it's still there but my fierce and growing love for comic-related slash seems to be on the rise (especially with regards to Captain America/Ironman and some bat-loving, not to mention the mishmash of JLA/Smallville future fics I really seem to be groovin' on).

So, not alone! I look back at this time last year and am embarrassed to see that I was waaaay more productive then than now. If that made any sense. And I've always enjoyed looking at what you rec. Especially the original slash stuff. *winks and BEAR HUG*
Naruto is way too epic for me to just jump in. i'm overwhelmed.

Lol, I think a lot of big ships/fandoms feel the same in that regard XD It's worth trying the manga though (I have it at gossbox ^^) and just seeing if the characters click or grow on you :)

I'm suprised 'cause the love kinda just snuck up on me - usually I just flit around and enjoy the random shiny the various animanga brings.

I'm sure things will pick up again with the HP movie - even if 'cause of all the rage-fu that people experience seeing the butchery of HBP hahaha Hopefully that'll lead to shiny new fanworks :3
