What Do You Have To Say? - Music: My First Favorite Band

What was the first band you became a fan of?

My first favorite band that I became a fan of was the Backstreet Boys. Before then, I didn't give a fuck about music in terms of being a fan of. Then when my cousin introduced me to BSB, and then my mom got into it, I became a big fan. The concert my mom won tickets to from a radio show (she wrote an essay about me) cinched it. I loved the band for about two years before moving on. And of course, I was a teeny bopper at the time, but it was good times, it made me forget my depression and suicidal thoughts. So they were a big help to me at the time.

Crack down on the pro anas

This just made me sick to my stomach.

It's not a joke, first read this entry about her letter to the LJ about suspending proanorexia.

Then I go look at the Abuse reports by the users and this is their reply:

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And the two Official comments by one of the employee:

coffeechica: Nothing to do with advertisers -- we allow pro-anorexia communities to remain because they are, in most cases, serving as support groups for the members. Silencing them won't make their problems go away; we'd rather allow them to heal together as a community.

If specific communities are actually inciting people to harm themselves, giving specific instructions that we believe cross the line, then Abuse will take action. If you have questions about specific communities, I encourage you to contact Abuse rather than list them off here. Source


If I GTFO, who else will answer your questions? ;-) Yes, I do work for LJ and I'm speaking officially.

I do know what I'm talking about; I've read many many of these communities. It's sad, I know it is. But it's not illegal to aspire to be thin. It's not against the ToS to give people bad advice.

LiveJournal does not support girls harming themselves. There is a line where we will suspend a pro-ana community or require removal of an entry. That line is when content is specifically instructing or inciting self-harm. Generalities aren't against the ToS, but specificities may be. Source

And finally, the place where I got the info from: Source I took a look at the pro ana community and it does NOT help the community heal together. It does the exact opposite. It really sickens me.

So. Clearly, LJ really is fucked up. I'm sorry, but ever since the LJ strikethrough, I've been keeping an eye on this. I've already created an alternate journaling place separate from here. Nothing y'all are missing out on. And on that journaling site, well, I support them.

I'm ready to jump ship, been that way for awhile since late May. I'm just using up my paid time here, hence why I haven't jumped ship yet. Ya know, get my money's worth. Not gonna go through that "give me my refund nowz!" as clearly they aren't. And anyway, it ends Aug 28th I believe. I'm dropping down to basic account, so of course, 3 or so icons.

The post that sprouted this: An entry on the mess

Harry Potter News: Fanart Works and sleuthing

This entry is full of links to Harry Potter fanart work I have done in the past up to now. They are all hosted on Mediaminer so they load faster than your average deviant art.

Link to Naomi_hp journal entry

So yeah.

In other news, I'm still working on chapter three and currently fleshing out many years of the books for this story. I got some quite interesting ideas.

I realized three things that occurred to me in the past 24 hours.

X-posted to my HP journal.

Harry Potter News: Foolish Emotions: II

Title: Foolish Emotions
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Harry, Draco, Ron, Hermione

Summary: What if Harry is the Heir of Slytherin? The story starts with Harry in second year, skipping over the events of the Philospher's stone. Slytherin!Harry, slight Dark!Harry.

Staus: WIP

JK Rowling and all her publishers own Harry Potter. All of this is written for entertainment purposes only.
Note: Right now, this is not a fully edited chapter. I am heading off to Miami later today, around 3 pm and my beta is currently indisposed. So, once I get back from Miami and my beta is feeling better, I'll have a better version of this chapter out next week. And without further ado...

Chapter 2

Harry Potter News: Strange World

Title: Strange World
Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: Harry, Ron, Ginny, Hermione (and her parents), the rest of Weasleys excluding Percy, Tonks, Moody, Kingsley and the Dursleys.

Summary: The spell was taken off the Dursleys, what is this spell and how did everyone react to it. Post Half-Blood Prince, written in script format.

Staus: Story Complete, five scenes long
Rating: Teen at best, for a single use of one swear word. Otherwise, it will be marked as All Audience.

Disclaimer: JK Rowling and all her publishers own Harry Potter. All of this is written for entertainment purposes only.
Note: I want to do something different and as you will see, this story is written in a script play format. Not your average IM conversations. I noticed that the site does not allow square brackets, which is most disappointing. I only wish to improve in my script play writing, so any critique towards that end will be appreciated. Thanks, have fun reading.

Harry Potter News

Okay, so I've stated a few times in my Friend's Only entries, that I've returned back to the fandom: Harry Potter. After being stuck in a reading frenzy that snared me for two or so weeks straight without doing much else online. That was finally broken after talking to Mike. I'll have to thank him for pulling me out of the reading frenzy. I have read some really good ones and I'll make some recommendations for you in case you want to read them yourselves. All of the stories listed is complete or is nearing completion (Which will be stated as such).

Collapse )

That's about three-forths of all the stories I have been reading in the last two weeks. Some are very long and took me days to finish. I had some odd dreams about some of the stories. Anyway, I'm also writing some stories myself for this fandom. Right now, I'm dabbling in a lot of plot bunnies and see which one is worth writing for the most. I have around four or five plot bunnies but I had shot them down.

So, currently, I'm writing one story, already completed another story which will be uploaded in the next entry soon. The completed story is called Strange world, and is written in a script format, with only less than 4,000 words. This story also began its emergence in my head during Winter break with Zenn as she is also a Harry Potter fan as well. Being in that environment really gets you back into it.

In case I don't upload the story soon, here is the link to the first chapter on mediaminer. I declined in uploading this story to because you never know who will report me and thus, getting banned and I'd rather not lose my account there. Even if it's a pit full of poisonous cockroaches that refuse to die.

Strange World: This story is about Harry learns one big secret behind the Dursleys once Dumbledore had passed away, no thanks to Snape.

As for the other story, it's kinda funny. I had fully intended for this story to remain as a one-shot, but when I read it over, I noticed that it could not remain as a one-shot. This story was written 2 years ago and a month, for a challenge on one forum I participated in, to get ready for the sixth installment of the HP series. Since then, I had gotten some reviews, wanting more, some even thought it wasn't a one-shot, even though I had implicated that it was a one-shot in the Author Notes.

Not only that, it is the fifth most read story in my (not so long) list of stories I put up on FF.N. For a one-shot. It's unheard of for me. Without further ado, here's the story.

Foolish Emotions: This story was a challenge, asking if Harry were the Heir of Slytherin. This is going to have Harry in Slytherin and also as Dark!Harry. I look forward to expanding this lil' nice one-shot story.

It is not up on MM.O yet, but it will soon. I wonder if I can write at least 10k words in time for the Max Fanfic... it won't matter if I don't. Not like I expect to win anytime soon with fanfiction on MM.O.

Other than that, I believe that I have some craving in drawing Harry Potter fanart again.

Piss off D=

I feel like I'm so going to shoot someone! I am so going to kick foxy_baby05 out of the house. They wore my favorite furry shirt when faded_enmity was visiting. I've never been so embarassed in my life!

that bitter old queen mpinsky gone and said that they saw me dissing on harajukubunny. Don't let me hear about that again or they'll be sorry!

Oh yeah. I am so going to kick razorzknight out of the house. They keep on stealing my condoms!

I feel so infuriated! I was supposed to get together with flame0f_ice Friday but I don't want to anymore. I'm so tired of seeing the same people.
