FYI

I'm taking a break from fandom.  Admittedly, I've not been very engaged in these last years mostly due to RL commitments, but it feels like the right time to step back, or at least tell myself that I'm taking a break officially so I'm not feeling a weird sense of obligation to stay half-tuned into what's going on, which I've tried to do even though I've not been posting.  It saddens me a little that I'm not feeling up to keeping up with debates/discussion/meta, something I've so enjoyed in the past.  But I feel a sense of futility when I read wanky, cranky, ranty, accusatory meta and wonder how that's at all productive and enjoyable for me (however, it may be engaging and interesting for everyone else and that's awesome).  I'll still be watching SPN and posting at spnematography, but beyond that I'll be hibernating.  So this is me giving myself permission to sign off from the larger beast that is the SPN fandom for a while.  Maybe I'll catch some of you on the flip side if you're still around, too.  Take care of yourselves, flisties.  I'm hoping I'll eventually wander back, invigorated and bursting with stuff to say, but most of all loving SPN and fandom again.

I'm sorry to hear that negative stuff got to you. *hugs* I keep seeing references to that, but my flist has been sane, so I have no idea what the full extent of the craziness is. It's good that you'll be around at spnematography because you always bring the smart and good stuff. :)

I'll post the prompt tomorrow. The ep broke me into itty bitty pieces and I have yet to pick them all up.

Late reply is late. :( I'm glad you've insulated yourself from all the wanktastically wanky wank and that you're still enjoying yourself. Yay!

Like I said before, I wouldn't ever leave you high and dry to mod spnematography solo (unless you wanted me to). But I feel like our poor little comm needs some love and attention, maybe we should re-evaluate in the near future?

Oo, the big friending meme that stir_of_echoes hosted brought even more sane people to my flist, so I'm even better now. :D

*eep* No solo comm modding for me! It's good to have someone to run ideas by and share the load with. But yes, the comm's been really quiet lately, so yes, we should do some re-evaluating. *sadface*
