Ah, damn...

Just looked at some old gmail pages from 2008 (yeah, I'm the type who seldom goes back and archives or deletes).  My flist was so active back in those days.  The whole group just sort of fell apart and drifted away. Bittersweet nostalgia.  Not the first time I've been in a community that did that, but it's always kind of sad when you think of the good times, and know they won't happen that way any more...

Those were the days!  A toast to all who were there - to friends here and missing, may your road find happiness and fulfillment wherever you walk.

It is sad when you think about little activity there is these days. I am sure that the ending of IY had a lot to do with it. You are right. Things are not like they used to be. Oh for the good old days of 2008.

Indeed. A special time it was.

I hear ya! I miss those days too! They were such fun! I can only hope we have a Renaissance in our fandom, or LJ, or something...someday.

You and me both...I think I get most of my social contact through twitter any more, and that's not as good...

Some days I miss LJ fandom a lot, and some days I'm glad I'm more or less in lurk mode and that many of the fandom pressures have faded away.

The fandom falling apart after the end of the manga was something I'd feared, and then dreaded, and then regretted :( I wasn't let to go of 'the group' and it seemed like so many people were ready to say BYE BITCH and just move on, you know? I guess because I'd only discovered IY a year or so before.

It sucks that things have died down, but fandom at large is definitely still kicking, and it's cool that we've all managed to stay friends, even beyond our other, disparate interests :) I'd definitely raise a glass to that!

*snuggles* I feel that; I seem to get comments sporadically on my LJ and so I've started focusing on gtalk... which obviously means less comments, which means less urge to post.

It's a vicious spiral. But I always can find you on Twitter!
