I first stumbled across this community the night Season 2, Episode 6 aired in the UK, which according to Wikipedia was 27th March 2007. On 5th May 2007, I posted my first LoM fic. Since then I simply cannot count the number of wonderful people I've met / chatted to / shared ideas and all kinds of fanworks with. It's been a phenomenal 10 years, and I am so proud of our corner of fandom. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for shaping our lives with love for a TV show.

Following previous posts on the subject, which you can see here and here (members locked), I would like to formally invite you all over to our Dreamwidth community:

You can still post on the LJ comm if you want to, I will continue to import any new developments here over to Dreamwidth. But I'd like the DW version not to be just a back-up from now on.

If you'd like to make the DW community look and feel that little bit more like this one, you can claim your LJ OpenID and link it to your Dreamwidth account.

I really hope we can make a fresh start on DW while still sharing the love for 1973.

To quote our beloved Sam Tyler: "Whichever strange place you find yourself in, make that your home."

Oh no I'm choking up.

I joined the party around halfway through, in October 2012... but I'd stumbled upon the comm a month or two prior, in dire need of fic after finishing series 2 of the show within just 3-4 days (I was holding back). Since then, my life has changed profoundly. At the time I was doing my undergrad in Germany and didn't really know what I was going to do with my life; watching LoM, I fell in love with Manchester, which is where I live now, doing my postgrad, and I've found a good direction to take my life to. I met Fern, and we've been formally together for close to 2 years now. The meet-up we did in 2014 will forever be one of my dearest memories (COME ON MEN!!). Not to mention how much I grew as an artist, thanks to the encouragements I received on this comm.

It's been wonderful on here. I too want to say thank you for all the beautiful memories. I may not have been here for as long as some other members, but the comm has still shaped my life in significant ways, and I won't ever forget that.

Here's to a fresh start on Dreamwidth indeed. ♥

I'm here! Thank you for the info and all. I need to make an effort to make sure all my fic is on either dreamwidth or AO3.
