For one thing, there's X-Men Origins - Wolverine, which I find is a pretty mediocre movie with some erotic scenes. (I mean the ones with blades in them.) I'd like to read movieverse fanfic... did anyone already stumble over some?

More importantly, I wanted to finally change my journal's style, only to discover that all the styles I like are based on Flexible Squares, which apparently can't be transferred to DW (copyright issues?). Or can it? I'm so tired, I can't read through all those help pages and comms, and tomorrow there's studying. (Recently I've been getting tired before 1 AM almost every day. Maybe I'm growing up.)
Any ideas on how I could import those custom styles based on Flexible Squares? Or maybe where I can find a layout like this one?

I know there are far too many parentheses in this entry. (But I don't care.)

ETA: Found an okay layout... but it seems like some millimetres at the top don't show. Do you see the dots on the Ä? If not, oh glorious CSS cracks of my flist, what can I do to fix it and get my Ä?
Plus, how do I get the tag list out of my sidebar?
You know, I used to have a vague idea how to do this, but I forgot it all. *sigh*
The question above still stands.

ETA 2: Now I get the "user names don't show up on reading page" problem, but when I follow the instructions here, the layout layer reports compiling errors.
I'm stupid. *sighs again* *goes to sleep*

> i've decided to leave comments open on my livejournal crossposts for now, as a temporary solution. in the medium term i'd like to shift this to directing comments to dreamwidth and leaving lj-comments open only on flocked posts, but at the present time my top priority is to make it easy for all of us to stay in contact.

there won't be any flocked posts in the near future.

> i want more content in my new journal. there will be links, open questions, randomness and the alphabet meme. topics will not be restricted to fandom and my narcissm anymore. (although you might find my narcissm everywhere if you look for it.)

> everything i do here will take time. i will usually not answer your comments and posts promptly. i want to put a lot of things in order, in several areas of my life, starting after my last exam (which is in ten days time), for which i'm going to need a lot of my energy.

dear lj-ers, if i don't comment, it's not because i left you for dreamwidth. i'm a poly person. i'm not leaving someone for someone else, unless that someone else is myself.


> if you have moved to dreamwidth or will move, or if you have an account there but won't use it:

- please tell me where i should read your journal, so i won't have to read the same entries twice.
- please tell me if you're on dreamwidth under another name (and still want me in your circle).

i hope i can leave you alone with this issue now. questions are still welcome, though. questions are always welcome.

Ich war mal wieder naiv und hab nicht daran gedacht, daß mein Umzug nach Dreamwidth für jemanden ein ernsthaftes Problem darstellen könnte.
Dies scheint jedoch unter Umständen der Fall zu sein.

Ich bitte alle Leute, die mit mir/ meinem Umzug/ dem Kommentare ausschalten/ was auch immer ein Problem haben, mich darüber zu informieren.
Bitte gebt mir klare Informationen, keine Andeutungen. Unausgesprochenes kann ich nicht einkalkulieren. Für Vages in der Luft herumschwebendes Zeug habe ich im Moment keine Energie übrig.
Der seltsame Tonfall resultiert übrigens nicht aus Wut oder Ähnlichem, sondern aus dem Versuch, den Post möglichst auf das Wesentliche zu beschränken.

Kommentare sind überall an.

Vielen Dank.

I feel like I should say something about Dreamwidth. Everyone is writing meta on how they feel having moved here, guides on how the new features work, thoughts about how the subscribe/grant access function will affect everyone's view of the former friendslist...

Whenever I start something new, I need to go meta about it, explore how the new environment/ way of communication/ theoretical concept,... affects my thoughts, feelings and abilities. Usually I come late to new communities or technologies, so I often feel left alone with my desire to "talk about what we're doing here". This time I'm there almost from the beginning, and although I have too much other stuff on my mind to dive as deeply as I would like to into the world that is Dreamwidth, and although I'm still not creative enough to contribute something useful, I'm growing into this new space quite easily - because everyone is talking about what they're doing and experiencing a great deal. It calms me.

Still, a big part of my just wishes I could write filtered entries right now.(Yeah, I know, I can write filtered entries. It's just that many of my LJ friends aren't here yet, and this small filter I created for a time like this is empty.) My personal life is behaving unpredictably and scares me. Spring 2009 seems to be a good time for everything and nothing.

On two nights this week I dreamt about Merlin. No idea why, it's not like I read a lot of fanfic these days or rewatch episodes. One dream was an adventurous Mary Sue fic, the other was Arthur/Merlin. Those were the two nights I slept well and actually felt well-rested when I woke up. Which tells us that Merlin apparently is helpful medicine when you're under strain.

I want to write something, but as usual I have no idea what. Whiny poetry, probably. ;)

My tags need a revamp; so does my layout. And I need to study. *sigh*

Because I was inexplicably lucky (kind of typical for me), an invite code landed in my inbox yesterday. So I'm posting for the first time from my shiny new Dreamwidth account.

From now on I will be posting to Dreamwidth and crossposting to LJ (but not to IJ, sorry guys). Comments will be kept to Dreamwidth only. That shouldn't pose a problem for any of you; you can comment there with OpenID, for example with yourusername.livejournal.com, and anonymous comments are permitted, too.

If you're already on Dreamwidth, don't de-friend me on LJ yet. I'm still getting used to everything and might get confused with crossposting, or forget, and in exeptional cases filtered content might still land on LJ. Defriend me on LJ when Dreamwidth open beta has started.

For those of you on LJ/IJ who don't know much about Dreamwidth and why anybody should move there, these posts might be interesting to you:

[livejournal.com profile] schattenstern: Dreamwidth - What it is and why I will be moving there

[personal profile] helens78: Why Dreamwidth? Because sheep are awesome.

I hope to see many of you here soon. :)
