 As seen on [personal profile] jcd1013 's journal:

"I have read enough blog posts to confirm this to my own satisfaction. I doubt this was a voluntary move. This post on the Russian side is particularly revealing: Servers Alive magazine moved to the Lubyanka. Note the five pages of comments. Also, "Alive magazine" means LiveJournal, in case that was unclear.
"What this means is that our content no longer has the protection of California law. It is now under the jurisdiction of a corrupt, brutal, authoritarian regime. Russians are far more at risk but what with the incoming president being so chummy with Vladimir Putin, you can draw your own conclusions.
"If that matters to you, you might want to move on.
"If you do decide to delete your LJ, please consider migrating before you pull the plug. You can import your journal to Dreamwidth, along with your icons, tags, and comments. If you own any communities, you can import them as well. (If you can afford it, please consider a paid account. Dreamwidth is a small company that accepts no advertising. We don't want it to go under. This applies to current users, too.)
"I am preparing for the possibility of either the Russian government or SUP shutting down LiveJournal without warning. If you care about your content, I suggest you do, too."
Some resources to make the transition:

I've already moved my journal over to DW and it really is fairly easy. I'm [personal profile] alianne82 over there. Please friend me there if you move as well or have already!

Additionally I can still be found on AO3, on Tumblr, and on my personal Twitter, although that is non-fandom. But feel free to follow me there as well.

I am not going to delete my LJ and I will keep cross-posting for a while. But I wanted to make sure I can keep all of my stuff I have on LJ. I think we should all do that, just in case.

1. Your main fandom(s) of the year: I guess Klaine still has first place here? Even though these days I'm much more invested in Zimbits and Patater (Check, Please!). But I feel like Philkas (Eyewitness) is quickly catching up. I've never had three OTPs before. (Four, if you count Klaine.) 2017 is gonna be interesting.

2. Your favourite film this year: Um. ??? idk I don't really watch a lot of films. And I haven't seen Rogue One yet because there's no place here that shows the original English. And there's no way I'm watching the German dubbed version.

3. Your favourite book this year: Read this year or published this year? Read . . . a toss up between the Raven Cycle and the Captive Prince series. And since both also had their final instalments published this year it counts for both categories.

4. Your favourite album or song this year: Haha too bad there hasn't been a new Glee cast album. I can't think of anything that came out this year, but thanks to endlessly obsessing over Sense8 I've had What's Up by 4 Non Blondes stuck in my head for most of the year.

5. Your favourite TV show this year: Eyewitness. Even though I've only watched it like two weeks ago. I haven't really followed anything else this year, at least not anything that really managed to capture my attention. I mean Glee is still a favourite even though it's over, but . . . yeah. I'm gonna say Eyewitness.

6. Your favourite LJ community this year: LOL

7. Your best new fandom discovery of the year: Check, Please! and Eyewitness. Oh god I love both.

8. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year: Hmm. I don't think there have been any disappointments? Check, Please! never disappoints and I've only been in the Philkas fandom for like three days, haha. The Doctor Who xmas special was a bit underwhelming but I didn't expect much from it in the first place, so it doesn't count.

9. Your TV/Movie boyfriend of the year: OMG Jack Zimmermann.

10. Your TV/Movie girlfriend of the year: Amy Santiago from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I love her.

11. Your biggest squee moment of the year: Jack Zimmermann showing up drenched by the rain on Bitty's doorstep (okay the Haus doorstep) to tell Bitty that they're a team. Hockey robot. Yeah. Sure. :)

12. Your most missed old fandom: Glee. I mean, I'm never saying goodbye to it (see what I did there? Haha) but it's not the same anymore. I love Klaine and I've done what I can to contribute to keeping fandom active, but I'm also happy to have found new things that have still active fandoms.

13. A fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? OMG no. I have almost more fandoms than I can keep track of as it is.

14. Your biggest anticipation of the New Year: Sense8. Hopefully a new season of Eyewitness with Philkas still there?? Sherlock, and finally new Doctor Who, and OMG EVERY Check, Please! update.

Idk how much sense there still is in tagging people on LJ, but if you see this, consider yourself tagged!

writing. Is going okay-ish again? I've managed to finish a lot of things lately. None of my WIPs, but. It's a start. And I have big plans to tackle the bounty hunter Klaine I've been working on since 2011 next. Maybe I should find a brainstorm buddy to work out some things. There are atill a number of plot holes.

reading. I did the goodreads challenge thing with the goal of reading 50 books this year and, uh, yeah. No. If fic would count, though, I'd have reached the goal in January probably. ^^

computer problems. Windows 10 is seriously pissing me off. I work with two monitors and it keeps changing my screen resolution and reorganising my desktop icons and the only fix is using 3rd party software. Like. ??? I think I'm gonna switch back to Linux. I had Ubuntu on the old laptop and it was miles better than Windows anyway, so maybe over the holidays I'll have some time for that.

TV. I've finally started watching Eyewitness and I'm already addicted. And now it might not get a second season? Ahh! But on that note, LOOK AT THIS PROJECT TO SAVE THE SHOW!!! You don't even need to watch the episode, just get it and stream it while you go grocery shopping or whatever.

Hope you're all doing well! <3

So in an attempt to distract myself I have finally started catching up on Doctor Who, which I had stopped watching after Matt Smith left.

What was that thing going around a while ago about how Nine was a tiger, Ten was Tigger, Eleven was the housecat who pretends he meant to do that after falling off the furniture, and Twelve was Grumpy Cat? Because I've always agreed with the first three, but the last one seems very accurate as well.

I don't hate Twelve, but Eleven won me over faster. And I'm getting a little tired of Clara tbh. But then it's hard for any companion to live up to Martha Jones or Amy Pond. I'm almost through with the last season. I just want to be done in time to watch the Christmas Special.

can I just have one single thing that doesn't suck? One good thing? Would that be possible?

I know, I know. Unrealistic expectations.

If you don't try then everything's shit, and if you do try everything goes to shit anyway so the end result is the same. So why even bother.

I'm not even American, but I feel sick. I'm truly devastated.

Sending love to all of you, especially all of my American friends. Please remember that you're not alone. <3

Day 3 of NaNo and I've just decided I'm going to do it after all. I've had this steampunk idea stuck in my head for quite a while now and since I'm almost done with edits on my current project, it does seem like the perfect time? (No I don't need to finish editing the other thing first, shut up.) I have the plot. It really should write itself? Ahhh, okay. Outlining first.

EDIT: Also, as a reward for almost finishing my new novel draft, I just ordered this T-shirt. :D

I'm kind of *drowning* in story ideas. I have five WIPs I'm determined to finish right now, one other thing I think I'm going to start anyway next week, and so many things I have no idea what to do with. I'm going to submit some to the prompt blog, I guess, but I also kind of want to keep some of them to myself? Idk idk. This is not a problem per se. This is a good thing. But I really really should finish at least one of them before I start something new wahhh I just don't know anymore? How many WIPs is still reasonable?? Is ten too much???

waahh I haven't been here IN AGES.

In my defence, I got diagnosed with a shiny new illness, been working on one manuscript and two big bang fics, launching one new prompt blog, working on putting together a huge big Klaine fic index, renovating the house, job hunting, generally drowning in paperwork, and vacationing in the Netherlands for ten days. Well, you get the idea.

Hmm, I hit "Post New Entry" with the intention of saying something profound, but I don't actually have anything to say . . . so have a good weekend, everyone, and I'm gonna go back to avoiding all responsibility and scrolling through old kurt_blaine rec posts.
