This is not fic or art, but rather musings and yearnings and thoughts.
I have been on a lengthy break from fandom at this point; not something I planned but something I've accepted. I've been getting back to painting over the last year or so, trying to find motivation and inspiration for art, thinking of ways to move it in new directions.
I do miss writing fic, but while I've occasionally thought about writing in other fandoms the urge is not so strong and I have trouble imagining how they'd live up to what this fandom was to me. I have a couple of really awesome unfinished LoM fics that could still bring me back. And I do have art ideas from time to time. I find myself particularly imagining things that would please danae_b were I to draw and post them, as she is so amazingly present here.
I think of you. I think of the awesome people I met in this comm. I wonder how you're doing. I reread fics, on occasion, or just reminisce about them - they're painted indelibly on my brain. I miss the time when livejournal was more active and one could feel connected to people through their posts. I'm still at least a little bit in touch with a couple of people through other social media - fb and tumblr and instagram, but there was a raw honesty and intimacy to livejournal posts that you don't always get through those other sources.
