FYI

I may seem like a giant flake, but I don't do friendbacks unless I feel like I'm connecting like hell with a person and my mind kinda spazzes and goes "where have you been all my life?"

It's partly because I have been burned in the past wherein I'd friend people back and then since we never really talked in the first place, while I got into reading them, they disappeared, stopped commenting and it felt like an unrequited relationship. My f-list is actually pretty private now as a result. People are free to lurk, but friending me doesn't mean that I'll get around to friending back any time soon.

And you don't have to friend me - you can track posts, or do RSS feeds. If you feel hurt by my stance, you do have alternative options to friending.

I also think friending everyone whose been on the flist a while and filtering them out when I read the flist is a bigger insult than not friending them back. I want to be able to say that I read my flist and try to connect with the people. I connect mainly through fandom posts. I'm not going to friend/keep someone on if I'm not willing to give them at least that much attention.

I'm also someone who is normally a GIANT lurker. Participation in fandom things doesn't actually come normally. Three times in the past, I've tried to do a couple of big, awesome things - but in the end I flaked out, avoided commitments and then discovered it was too late. And yeah, I think of those things and I feel like the biggest asshat ever.

LJ is all about fandom for me - its something that I've needed but never had - ever since I was in middle school really. It's an outlet and even a bit of escapism from RL to just enjoy and share the love. I try to ignore wank apart from watching it while eating popcorn, 'cause that's not why I'm here. Truthfully, if LJ does become more drama than its worth, I know I'll probably log off one day and never come back. That's just me.

For now though, LJ is still a pretty awesome place :)
I do lurk a lot with authors and artists because of shy (believe it or not) but at the same time if I feel you're approchable I comment a lot and actually have to pull back. I'm sorry if I seem like a comment ho! I'm really trying not to comment on each and every one of your posts. =/

I just finished The Official Autobiography by HP and when I read his opening paragraph I was like *sporfle* I WRITE LIKE HARRY POTTER. *dies*
There are one or two people who intimidate me like hell and whenever I keep there are typos and I'm always afraid my opinion will get misunderstood or dismissed. It's easier just to lurk on some ljs.

I'm sorry if I seem like a comment ho! I'm really trying not to comment on each and every one of your posts. =/

It's fine XD Since most peeps don't, I'm not really drowning under comments in that way hahaha Don't be afraid to holler which your thoughts whenever. The worst that can happen is that I can fail to respond (which can happen when I get distracted by shiny)

Man, need to catch up :O

Oh that's fine you have soooo many interests and I can barely keep up with H/D and slash reading. I always look at not replying at every single thing as a matter of decorum. Like the person is sophisticated or something. I just don't want you to feel like OMG Moo STFU Hoor! So if you see me blathering just let me blather away, it makes me happy. :DDDD
