Two years ago today darkhavens was born
I had been at lj for a few months when I decided I needed a journal for the darker side of my personality as well as the one I used for my more 'acceptable' self, and lo, darkhavens was born.

Two weeks to the day later (that's the 18th), I discovered Spander, and suddenly I found myself spending much more time as darkhavens as I scoured LJ and the web for more of my new obsession.

That original journal hasn't been deleted, but it's definitely been abandoned to the fates - and no, you wont be prying the name out of me, whatever you try.

So, two years. In that time I've created my first ever website, gone through three different webhosts, made a squillion new friends, actually met some, and, in the last few months, done something I never thought I would - I went bi-fandom. And it only hurt for a little while. *g*

Thank you to everyone who has helped make those two years so much fun. And let's hope they're just the beginning! :D

Congrats! I'm glad darkhavens is around; love your bi-fandomness!
darkhavensdarkhavens on November 5th, 2005 05:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I'm still getting used to being bi. *g* I was faithful to Spander for so long, I'm still having to fight being guilty every time I write McShep. Heee!

ahh yes, I remember the old you. Poor neglected journals. Then again I have about 15 that haven't been updated since I got lit, so who am I to talk? ;)

::tackles & smooches::
darkhavensdarkhavens on November 5th, 2005 05:16 pm (UTC)
Yes, you journal-making addict. At least you're using the newest one for something. ;)

Thanks, Pookie! *glomps*

i take it from the picture up top that the Other fandom is SGA? and if it is, can i please commiserate? seriously, that fandom is known as the Black Hole of fandoms. we all get assimilated eventually. and, of course, it's all about the McShep. (Spander is life, but McShep is the afterlife. or something just as scary and inevitable.)

incidentally, if you're looking for amazing, holy-crap-this-can't-be-real recs, for any fandom, but SGA in particular, try thefourthvine's lj. (can't figure out how to make that a link, sorry) her lj is called The Slashy Awards. hee. intrigued yet? believe me, it's worth it. she makes me laugh so hard i've had to assure housemates i'm not in hysterics.

cheers! and welcome to the life-sucking world that is the bi-fandom!
darkhavensdarkhavens on November 5th, 2005 05:29 pm (UTC)

Oh yes, it most certainly is SGA. kyrieane lured me in with offers of eps and then ambushed me with fic and I fell hard. McShep is right there on the screen from episode one and I was completely in love.

I've read thefourthvine's Fandoms I Have Loved 10: Stargate: Atlantis, and a quick skim down the first page of her journal today shows me that I've read every single thing she's recced.

I'm truly addicted. I'm even watching the Wraithbait RSS feed here at LJ so I know everytime something new gets posted there. *rolls eyes*
