I'm moving here from LJ. I'm so very sad that I must leave LJ for good, but the recent news has made it clear that it's time to move on. Hopefully I'll make new friends here. I have no idea how active dreamwidth is because I loved straight to tumblr, but I want to have a regular journal like this.

I'm hoping to backup my old LJ here soon.

I'm leaving

So I recently found out about the servers changing to Russia from California. I'm moving to Dreamwidth. It's probably only a matter of time before I get removed since I belong to a bunch of pro LGBT communities and Russian laws surrounding LGBT issues aren't good at all. While I think most of the deleted blogs are rumors with no substance I'm not sure how long that will last as I remember years past where they did delete many blogs.

I'm transferring everything to dreamwidth as I write this, once that is done I'll crosspost as long as I feel comfortable doing so. If they start deleting people again I'm out. If you want to friend me on dreamwidth I'm lily_everhart there.

About Me

Since I'm trying to get new friends and have had a couple already. I'm going to talk a little more about myself.

I have been involved in fandom since about the year 2000. My first fandoms were Harry Potter, Gundam Wing, and Sailor Moon. I was reading fics on FFnet when there were only six anime on the site which if you look at in now it's changed a whole lot. I primarily stalked Geocities shrines and anime music download sites (where the person would update weekly and post 5 new Japanese songs a week, the good old days).

My first LJ was in 2006 and I joined FFnet in 2005 I believe after 5 years of lurking only (and watching fandom drama unfold). I posted several fic that were never finished because I'm lazy let's be real here. I was on LJ through 2011 before leaving for tumblr where I've remained. I've had two tumblr accounts, one called fleurbleues which I abandoned because I needed a fresh start in fandom as I was following too many negative people who had taken away my enjoyment of fandom. So I now have a new fandom name.

I've been in many different fandoms, like the very thought of saying every fandom I've ever been in is exhausting. Maybe I'll make you a list. Anime is my primary source for fandom but it fluctuates every year. I use to fluctuate too when it came to reading slash, femslash, or het but now I pretty much read any at any given time. There are a few fandoms I'll always be a part of Sailor Moon, Harry Potter, and Fullmetal Alchemist are good examples of that. One Piece will be once I catch up.

From 2007-2010 I focused more on reading original slash stories. I'm very sad the original slash community seems to have broken apart since the people I followed started publishing.

I spend most of my time reading fanfics and looking at fanart. Although I'm trying to write more fanfics and finish them. I'm also working on a few original stories and hope to put them on Wattpad soon. I really regret those years I spent lurking instead of creating and making friends. I think I'm better about that stuff now.

I have a lot of interests outside of fandom. I have a horse and have been riding horses since I was 11. They're a bit of an obsession of mine. I love animals though. I like sewing and knitting. Obviously I like writing. I love reading and always do a Goodreads Challenge. I also try to do NANOWRIMO every year and other NANO challenges throughout the year.

Occassionally I may talk about the RPG or board games I play with my friends. I love games and am thinking of doing some Let's Plays since everyone who watches me play thinks I'd do a good job.

I also collect dolls but I've slowed down a lot as space and money are huge detractors. I would love to get more seriously into Japanese Lolita but I haven't. I really like fashion especially historical fashion and Japanese Lolita, but I also enjoy Red Carpet events. On the opposite side of that spectrum I enjoy watching hockey and baseball but I'll rarely talk about them. Unless the Blues finally win a Stanley Cup for the first time ever in the franchises history, then I'm sorry but that might be the only thing I talk about for a week.

Right now I'm in my last year of school ever. These next two months will be very busy but I'll have my last summer off. I'm married to a wonderful man, but we don't have children yet although it's something I would like (just after school). I have a dog, a cat, and a horse.

As far as politics go I'm liberal although I probably won't talk about it too much, but in this age of Trump who knows right.

The thing I wish I could do again is travel but money is tight. I'd love to go back to Japan. I'm planning a trip to the beach this summer though so yay. I like to go to anime conventions.

Anyway that's all I think to say at the moment. Feel free to ask me any questions you have and/or introduce yourself here.

This is a rare personal post that is going to remain public because I just realized that I just friended a bunch of people and now I'm going to be disappearing for four days. I'm going on a mini vacation to San Diego which I'm excited about because 1) warm weather, 2) I get to see some family I haven't seen in about six years and 3) I've never been to San Diego.

This past couple weeks have been tough. My Grandma passed away December 29 and her funeral was this Tuesday. It happened very fast. The Tuesday before she died the doctors said she would be going home that Friday. Wednesday afternoon she suddenly took a turn for the worst. We were driving home from visiting my in-laws and were six hours away when we got a call saying to hurry home that it looked bad. By the time we got there they had induced sleep to perform a CT scan. That night she progressed worse and my Dad and his siblings had to make the choice to pull the plug on her life support or not. We ended up choosing to pull the plug because everything in her body was shutting down.

So I didn't get to see her awake but I did speak with her on Tuesday. I think maybe I should have known it was worse than I thought it was because for the first time she admitted to me that she was in pain. We only spoke for a few minutes and it was a terse conversation but she was in a lot of pain.

A lot of things in my life are going to change. I did a lot of things with her. We went to the theater, to concerts, out to eat, shopping, and all sorts of things. I visited her often, although not as often as I would like. It's a weird feeling because I know we did a lot together and yet I still think I could have done more with her. I don't really feel guilty so much as just sad we didn't get to spend as much time as we usually do together. She was fun to talk to. I'll miss her greatly. I'm at a much better place these last couple of days since the funeral.

It didn't help that during the funeral I was sick and have only now just recovered from the cold I had. I'm kind of ready for this trip to San Diego but there is also a part of me that just wants to stay home. I have school in two weeks and I feel so unrested for it.

Today I was playing Final Fantasy I on my Ipad. I was trying to get my new classes today and so I was searching the dragon caves. Well I sometimes have a hard time controlling my character because the controls are a bit finicky and I accidentally went into the hellfire chasm.

I couldn't just walk back out and I was stuck. So I wandered a bit, did a few battles before thinking "Oh, I'll just upload my old save after this battle"

So I finish the battle. Opened up the menu and...saved...over my previous save.

And I sat there for a moment and then I basically said "What the f*ck? Why did I f*cking do that? That was really stupid. OMG I'm so pissed!!!!"

I was so mad I decided the best course of action was to just die, but I was so over leveled that the enemies were barely damaging me. So I went to the next level and let myself walk on the hot lava floor and didn't heal myself at all. I got all the way to the fifth level and only my Black Wizard was close to dying at 13 health.

I entered and a room and behold a boss.

I have my warrior, monk, and black mage attack/use magic and was finally going to have my white mage heal because boss battle. Well my warrior, monk, and black mage all went and then the boss Tsunami-ed my ass and I finally died.

And I was like...but I didn't want to die this time...

So I did the mature thing and quit.
