I believe - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
I believe
Gacked from ljs

I Believe.

I believe in Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin. I believe in Lin Chung, Hu San Niang, the Tattooed Dragon and the rest of the Nine Dozen Heroes. I believe in Leon and ‘No women, no kids’. I believe in Judge Dee Jen-djieh, Chao Tai, Ma Joong, Tao Gan, and Sergeant Hoong. I believe in Chmee, the Kzin formerly known as Speaker to Animals. I believe in Nile Etland and her genetically-engineered otter friends. I believe in Dachande (Broken Tusk) and Machiko Noguchi aka Da’dtou-di (Little Knife). And that the movie that reused some of the book’s ideas sucked dead Xenomorphs through a straw.

I believe in Jaheira, in Viconia, in Minsc and Boo. And I believe that Boo really is a Miniature Giant Space Hamster.

I believe in Rincewind, in Sam Vimes, in Arch-chancellor Ridcully, and in Carrot and Angua (although I’ve developed a slight case of Carrot/Sally shipping because Angua’s insecurities are starting to get right up my nose).

I believe in Number Ten Ox and in Master Li, who has a slight flaw in his character. I believe in Ogami Itto and his son, forever wandering. And in Buck Duane, the Lone Star Ranger.

I believe that the game’s afoot. That somewhere Alan Quartermain stumbled upon lost civilisations. That John Clayton, Viscount Greystoke, secretly watches Tarzan movies and laughs himself sick at their dire portrayals of him. And I believe in Doc Savage and his Famous Five.

I believe in redemption.

Redemption for Viconia, for Spike, for Willow, for Little Krell, for Chen Lung, for Leon, for Lady Snowblood, for Jonathan, for Faith, for Ilona Costa Bianchi, and most of the time for Angel. Often even for Harmony. But not for Andrew. Or for Graham Poll.

And I believe that Charlie Croker managed to get everybody safely off the coach and salvage most, although not all, of the gold.

But most of all I believe that SixApart is a division of Wolfram & Hart and, alas, not the division headed by Ilona Costa Bianchi.

(and that is why I’ve created a Greatest Journal account with the same user name as here. All the cool grown-ups are doing it; some say we’re lemmings, but I say that we’ve seen the iceberg up ahead and are booking our seats on the lifeboats.)

Amen, and amen.

Is everyone doing this because they believe that LJ for those of us not 19 and under will disappear or just not cater to our demographic? I'm only reasonably computer/internet capable. I've found a nice little niche here in LJ and I really don't want to go through all that again. I'm not a graphaholic and if I understand it all correctly, those are the people most effected by all this.

Please, if you can, enlighten me. I want to do the right thing. I don't want to be left here alone, but if the iceberg isn't going to effect my words or the fiction, then I'm content to stay.

Help. Please.

Well I can't leave, I bought a permanent account - why is everyone doing this leaving thing?

Lovely list (and I'm off to friend you on GJ :)

I'm not sure about the iceberg, but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

Greatest Journal accounts

I’ve created a Greatest Journal account with the same user name as here
So have I. Mostly so if I have to move I can keep the same name. I friended you on GJ too.

OK, I'm now ffutures there - but I probably won't be using it much until such time as things go hideously wrong with Livejournel.

I friended you back on GJ. :)

I'm hoping we don't have to decamp there, either, but I'm certain making preparations just in case. I've been through re-arrangements and seen communities destroyed -- I still have scars from the dismantlement of the old GEnie boards, which destroyed more than one wonderful community. LJ is the closest thing I've known to that since this and I'm reluctant to let it go if I don't have to.

1: Yay Boo! *loves the hamster*

2: But most of all I believe that SixApart is a division of Wolfram & Hart and, alas, not the division headed by Ilona Costa Bianchi. *cracks up*

3: I haven't moved to GreatestJournal. I like it here - I shan't move until absolutely forced. And I can always go back to blogging on my website ...

I don't really understand this Greatest Journal thingy, but it does seem as if all the cool lemmings are doing it.

I believe in Esme Weatherwax. And Fitzwilliam Darcy.
diachrony From: diachrony Date: June 24th, 2006 05:34 am (UTC) (Link)
I believe in Rincewind, too.

I also created a GJ account "just in case" ... same name ... and, given that I see you at Eza's journal all the time and she is a veryvery good friend of mine, I've been planning to come check you out too when I had the time. I went ahead & friended you on GJ. And here at LJ as well. It may take me some time to read your fic. *scrambles to keep up*

But, hello. And I'm very pleased to make your acquaintance.

Anyone who even remembers the Water Margin, especially "Painted Dragon", has to be on my friends list.

I loved your stories that I read at The Crypt, even if I do mostly read/write slash, when the het mood hits, you always get the spot.

Also I got at GJ account as well! will friend you there as well! {{Hugs}}
