...As you walk on by, will you call my name?
When you walk away...

And so, regretfully, hiatus.

There's a truckload of work, and for some reason fandom isn't the frivolous happy fantasyspace it used to be? The damn music industry's a fickle, incomprehensible thing. And my well's dry, y'all; I recognize it's time to take a step back.

I'm totally grateful for everything fandom's given me, and for all of you. I still care; I'll still be about these guys, and about you all - that won't change. I'll still be here, dancing, you know it, baby.

You need me -- for a listening ear, for views on holiday plans, for a quick consult or beta -- I'm just a PM away.

One fandom thing that's given me real pleasure these last few days: discussing our boy's new song with [profile] otherbella and [profile] princessleia04, and the new pictures, from which [personal profile] naughtiest made a poster for the hottest new cop show on the block - IDOLS5-0! Or something like that, anyway.

And the show where they're thugs? Here :)

I will check mails, likely lurk, and possibly surface in some shape or form when that sophomore record does. Until then, I hope you'll all treat each other kindly, and will stay in touch - look my way, call my name, don't walk on by.

And so: slow change may pull us apart - when the light gets into your heart... baby, don't you forget about me.

Aww, Jay--it's been a pleasure getting to know you a bit, and I wish you the very best, and look forward to seeing you around here again when circumstances permit. *HUGS*

Love. Your. Icon. Thanks, Brynn, you're such a doll and so so talented! I am so glad I got to know you too - all the best to you and Mr Mc, and I do hope to see you back here in due course!

Aw, darling, I am usually the Queen of Multi-Tasking! Until work descended, and my office firewalled LJ and apps, and I found that my only LJ time was post-work when I should be with my family. So my life was out of balance and it was making me cranky with fandom, which kind of defeats the purpose of being in fandom in the first place?

And aw, someone might be writing something which might require lawyering? Well, maybe I can help with that :)

Sending love too, kiddo. You know where to reach me.

DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD: Awwww Jay! I'm going to miss you. LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS. But RL always comes first, sigh.

*HUGS* Take care :) (And I might consult you for a beta job in the near future. Just warning you?)

I will miss you too, Nitya! I'm sorry to do this huge dramatic thing, but I thought it was easier than to just fall off the face of the earth, yk? Also, LJ was too much of a time suck, I was getting crankier and that's not what fandom is for!

*hugs back tightly* You can email me at any time, bb <3 <3 <3.

Awww! Though I confess to mostly-lurking of late myself, I'll miss seeing you around as often. But you gotta do what works for you, right?

I hope your hiatus does for you what you'd like it to, but I'm not gonna lie and say I wouldn't be excited if you reemerge to discuss/flail/whatnot about David Cook Part II or whatever this album will be called.

*HUGSHUGS* Take care of you and I hope to see you around again someday! ♥

*HUGS BACK* Thank you, sweetness. I am just experiencing a huge time crunch and, you know, fandom is making me cranky, which is totally not the point, right? So.

I hope you'll have time for more fun and less lurking in fandom! I also do expect to get excited for the next album, so I'm not saying goodbye to you ;)

Damn it.
I will just have to cling to you through email. :(
*commences clinging*

I do hope work will not treat you too horribly.

Oh, this makes me sad. I totally get it, but yeah.

I hope all is well at home and work, and I'll drop you an email.

FWIW, I think things will get fun again, or you'll move on to a new thing and THAT will be fun. That's the Circle of Fandom, or something :)

Much love my dear ♥

Jaaaaaay. :( I totally get why you need a hiatus bb. My personal Archie world is not a happy one these days and I have taken a huge step away from the I think I explained in email. I can't get re-invested until I know my bb is actually doing something with his career (i.e. management and label). Anyway, I digress and don't mean to be a huge downer. Sorry.

I am so looking forward to Cook's album and it is nice to have that to be excited about. I know you'll be back to flail when we are privileged to hear his new music.

Take care of you during this break bb. I hope you'll be rejuvenated with fandom squee when you come back from hiatus. I'll miss you in your absence though. ♥ (I'm seriously tempted to commission imli to make Dark Angel stripper Arch come to life if she has time in the near future...would you be opposed if I did so?) ;)

Emailed you, doll. Suffice to say: thank you for your friendship, and your support, and you aren't a downer at all - I mean, you did read my downer thing, right? :)

I will miss you too! I'm just a mail away ♥

Very sad to hear you'll not be around, but if it's all right with you, I may still e-mail you about various legal history shenanigans.

(Also, my fandoms have been dead for c. 400 years and are, generally speaking, wank-free...if you're looking for entertainment, that is. ;) )

Date: 2011-03-08 01:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
You can totally email me! I'm glad I'm not fired as legalbeta :)

Ah, I am not sure there is such a creature as a wank-free fandom. No? But I adore you for the offer, sweetness ♥

Aw, I hate when people post stuff like this. It always sounds so final :'(

I'm sorry to hear you don't think fandom is the same happy place it used to be *hugs*

I do hope to see you around, though, when real life allows it ♥

Oh sweetie, I'm sorry! Work has just gotten worse, and my office firewalled LJ, and I found that my only online time was post-work when I should be with my family. So my life was out of balance and it was making me cranky with fandom, which kind of defeats the purpose of being in fandom in the first place? I hope to get back my balance and my happiness with fandom, and thought this was the way to do it.

I'm sorry to make a big dramatic posting, though! I just thought it was easier, rather than dropping off the face of the internets.

Take care of yourself and the dolls and everything, bb! You know how to reach me if you need anything!

I definitely understand needing to take a step back, but... *wibbles* please do come back to visit eventually. Take care though, the fandom will be colder and lonelier in your absence. <3

sad face! You've been such an amazing ambassador of the Cookleta fandom to me the past two months or so. Thanks so much for taking me under your wing, so to speak, sharing your recs and observations and answering all of my inane fandom questions. I will really miss you; I hope to see you back soon, when we can all squee about new music and tours and everything else.

Hey, bb, I'm glad to be your purveyor of Cookleta delights!

I'll miss you too! I hope you'll continue to write, and have fun in fandom, and that you know you can reach out if you need anything at all, k? *hugs*

Hey, bb, when you find you, come back to us, okay? I'll miss you like CRAZY, but if it's not fun for you anymore, then taking a step back seems like a good plan. *GIANT HUGS* Hope to see you back in not too long!

If I ever get a chance to get back to parts 2/3 of that one story I was working on, I may shoot you a message. Grad school is a heartless bitch, though :-/

I wish it wasn't so, but you do what you have to do. Fandom burnout should not be ignored. Hopefully things will liven up once the record drops, and they start touring again. And if not, then you have my email (and vice versa).

I still hold up hope for the continuation of the roller derby fic, though...because everybody needs an impossible dream, and this is apparently mine.

*HUGS BACK* I'm not going anywhere; you have any common law needs, I'm totally there - and I am relying on you girls to keep me up to speed with the DCook record stuff :)

and, oh man, rollerderby! I think Frack and I might have written more after where we left off posting, though it's most unlikely we'll pick it up again - but I will see if I can find it!

Don't you stay away too long! You're not gonna like, suddenly delete or remove your stories or anything like that right? Cos i still love to read your stuff! even for the 78688th time..
