Just added my import to the Dreamwidth queue. Should have done this years ago, I know, but... well. Call me sentimental, because I am.

I found LJ through Irresistible Poison, the H/D fic of my thirteen-year-old heart. I remember what drew me to make my own account: it was the way people used the comments. Threaded conversations between people who knew each other, often only tangentially related to the original post. Constant parties, with the OP as hostess, commenters as guests, icons as accessories. I was so eager to be part of it and so awkward when I tried. But I found people, and I built my space, and I watched that space grow and evolve over the past 14 years or so, and even though I hardly use it anymore, it still matters to me. It's the emotional archive of my entire adolescence, and even though I'm not actually losing the information (if the import goes through okay) it still feels like a big deal. Imagine photocopying all your childhood diaries and then setting them on fire.

But we don't really have much of a choice anymore (in case you hadn't heard), so. See you all on Dreamwidth.

I, too, found the constant discussion on LJ to me compelling, and something that has never been duplicated elsewhere.
