I was going to post some fic or an amusing piece of political satire to celebrate two years on LJ. But I seem to have accidentally have come up with a snap fest. (What was I thinking!?)

So instead, I want to say THANK YOU.

To the amazing writers whose work I have enjoyed …

To the generous readers who have enjoyed mine…

To the artists, who astonish …

To the lurkers, who occasionally pop up to say hi, or ask for cake recipes …

To the people who run fests, comms, archives, rec lists and pimping posts …

To the cheery nutters …

To the political fiends …

To the actual friends …

To the people who lead such interesting lives and think such fascinating thoughts …

To the F1 fans …

To the grammarians and the contrarians …

and everybody else, thank you so much for making this such a fun and welcoming place. I'll be back with fic and politics in the not too distant future, meanwhile, off to organise a scratch fest with the lovely co-mods!

Oh, and an extra thank you to everyone who has so kindly been pimping Azkartaz @ Home! It's going to be great!

Thank YOU! You'd be a shoo-in for poster girl on at least nine of the Types on your list, you know :)

I hope the fest goes swimmingly! :)

I didn't see you mentioning the incredibly intelligent and wonderfully mature people *cough* so I'll just settle for being "everybody else". Yes. That's correct.

Thanks to you and Leochi I cannot get the image of Milly Molly out of my head. So thank you, young lady (yes, you) for being an interesting, inspiring and funny person. :)

And thank YOU - for the wit, wisdom and dodgy jokes, your generosity, and your shiny usefulness! *snogs you silly* And good luck with the fest. :)

That is such a great icon :D

Isn't it! :D I stole it with retrospective permission from the_flic - I just love it so much! :D
adores_dracoadores_draco on July 15th, 2009 03:47 pm (UTC)
A brilliant icon! :))

The kitten is priceless but Snape is even better!
Pureblood Princessraitala on July 14th, 2009 10:34 pm (UTC)
Congrats! You have rocked fandom massively. This fest is going to be awesome, if it doesn't kill us off first!

Thank you for sharing your work and for showing good humor, even when strangling people would be a justifiable response. :)
Bryoneybryoneybrynn on July 15th, 2009 01:42 am (UTC)
I think I fit one or two of these so thank you! *g*

It's been awesome getting to know you and having you in our little community. You bring humour, insight and intelligence to all your posts. And your comma usage is inspirational. Perhaps one day it will even make sense to me!

Have fun with Az at Home! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

Happy 2 year! I've been here for 4. Time goes by so fast, I actually forgot. :P

Thank you for you. Your intelligent and incredibly witty posts are always a fantastic read. I always think, why turn on the news when I can just read your journal instead? More often than not, yours is a lot more eye opening. :D :D :D

To the grammarians and the contrarians …
Of which I am both. Happy anniversary!

Ok, I don't really understand this Azkartaz @ Home thing. Heck, I don't really understand about the mechanics of how you do the Harry Potter fan stuff at all. I see your stories in your journal, and once in a while follow a link in your journal to someone else's stories. How do you know about them?

(wait--perhaps I shouldn't ask--sure, I have more time than I did whilst finishing my thesis, but life is still busy, perhaps I don't really want to know about this...)
blamebramptonblamebrampton on July 15th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC)
A@H is a comm where, from tomorrow, you will find lots of cracky mini-fics (basically silly comedy), some of which will be good, some of which will simply be bonkers ;-)

There will also be one long fic that is being written by many writers, which could be good, or bonkers ...

And there will be lots of discussion on the film and a whole set of Potter topics if you're interested in any of that!

But yes, as to finding things, it's clicking on lots of links and listening to lots of friends, and time disappears once you start!

LJ community, like a personal page but with many contributors or members.
Kareinakareina on July 15th, 2009 06:13 pm (UTC)
oh, I think I probably didn't want to know that. LJ already gets more time/day than it should...

congrats :D
