calime: grey and red cat touching noses, text aand... smooch!  (and smooch...)
...or, um, I am cohabiting with a cat, again. A bit earlier than I planned (I had PLANS. Of home repairs first and then TWO KITTENS. Which, well. I guess I just have to get two kittnes, too, whenever I get the home improvement done). But like it often happens, cat had other plans.
It's a common story in my profession - basically it's an almost-new, slightly used kitteh in need of some repairs (previous owner could not afford said repairs, I had a cat spot open, so it goes). Very purry. I renamed her Ewok, for obvious likeness and to keep to the theme (I have always had Star Wars kittehs living with me).

So, I haven't been really active on Livejournal - just an occasional crosspost - for a long time, and I thought about deleting it several times after the servers moved to Russia, whom I trust even less than the US :) The new TOS finally gave me the kick in the pants I needed. I have many fond memories of the Livejournal, which was for me really the first site for a more in depth engagement with the fandom, especially Highlander fandom, and I am sad to leave, but it hasn't been the same for a long time.
I have imported the content to DW long time ago, so now it was just the matter of downloading both my own LJ and the Highlander100 community that was started by other fen and that I ran in the end for a while - I will see and try about getting that content up to AO3 one day, per the old community rules- (I used BlogBooker) and deleting both the community and my account. I chose the option to also delete all my entries and comments in other communities.
So, one chapter closed. I will now go and donate to AO3 and continue keeping a paid account here on Dreamwidth - and maybe try posting here more often, and hang out on Tumblr (which is a shitty place though if one wants to have any fannish discource in addition to reblogging pretty pics.

19 years is a long time, but it doesn't feel long enough. Hopefully you'll go and meet up with the Old Dragon cat again; do say hi for me too. I will miss you.

Go on, amble away over the fucking rainbow or wherever you go and bother the Yellow Pony a bit. I'll miss you.

calime: fangirl (fangirl)
... just got back from the cinema. Will be going again on Tuesday. Will say without spoilers that I liked it (which expression, considering the cultural way of expressing enthusiasm I grew up with, means that I am squeeing. Though, maybe in a more soft, nostalgic way. Maybe this is what getting older feels like.). I laughed and I cried and I was happy to see the old faces and surprisingly liked all the new ones.
Those who want to avoid spoilers - I am not going to spoil anything in this post, but will make no effort to keep spoilers away from comments of this post.
