Oh GEEZ. This makes me feel better about the amount of procrastination time I spent today finally uploading icons over here. I rather wish more of them involved nudity.

Well. That one's a good start.

*stares*

Yea, I had a moment of hope when Barak quit, but it was short lived. We're all gonna end up here sooner or later. May as well get the place decorated nice.

Do you think the impetus to move is at all building, even slowly? Sometimes I wonder if there isn't a split happening between like, HP and everyone else because I feel like I've been noticing differences or issues a lot more because of the fact that I'm hovering around HP fandom lately. I mean, I couldn't even TELL YOU how many times recently I've clicked on a link only to find it either flocked or TOSed. (Yes, I was looking for underage Dan/Rupert RPS, yes.) And then almost invariably with a little bit of digging I've been finding whatever I was after over here.

Haha, randomly, one of the stories that got TOSed was a fic where Dan's a vampire (he was sired by Gary Oldman) and he turns Rupert. And really, it was relatively tame compared to your average Fang Four fic. But of course, you know, it was set when they were 15 and 16 respectively...AND VAMPIRES. BECAUSE THAT'S NOT FICTION AT ALL. :P

Seriously, even sweet little old me wrote a fic that had to be recced on the sekrit yahoo groups version of Hogwarts Today instead of the regular LJ version due to underage girl groping and a fifteen year old girl deciding to seduce an 18 year old boy. Um.

I dunno...I mean, HP is totally over here, from what Fod said (and now you). Jossverse is so scarcely anywhere anymore, it's hard to say, but the Herald is mirroring over here just in case. I backed up my whole LJ even though I have my stories on ficbitch b/c I am a whore and hate the thought of losing the feedback. I do know for sure a LOT of people on my FL run out in terms of paid status this year, and so far, none of them have renewed it. I see a lot of folk with only three icons, or whatever. But to totally answer your question, I don't know. I think a lot of it depends on fandom, and it seems like where the BNF writers/artists go, people would follow, no??

The move is definitly going slower than I think I initially thought that it would. It seemed that in the beginning people in the Jossverse fandom were talking about moving but much of it seemed to be if everyone goes, I'll follow, but no one really actually moved. There are a hand full, but I just don't think what remains of Jossverse fandom is nearly as threatened by the TOS thing so they aren't really feeling the need to go. Principal got me up and out even though I am on the back end of impossible when it comes to being ToS'd. Many people, I think, are just comfortable where they are. But I could just be cynical.

No, you're not cynical. People like status quo. It would take something that directly effected them to make most people move.

That's the long and the short of it, I think, too.
