a much belated public fangirling  
anr made me a whole series of beautiful Trip/T'Pol banners ages ago, and now I've put them up on my journal!


My journal design is not so stellar, but please refresh a few times and admire all the banners, which I've put in rotation. <3 <3 <3

My moodtheme is anr's too. Basically everything on here belongs to her, haha. Which means that she has a metaphorical garage full of Dancing With the Stars glitter crack, but who doesn't, really?

Perhaps now more Enterprise fic will happen by sheer force of inspiration!

(On another topic, I'm stuck at ~700 words of breakfast on het_bigbang. They're actually 700 really fucking depressing words, too, because I thought I'd start by writing Sarah from The Dead Zone right after Johnny Smith's coma-causing accident. Good one, Little Red? SIGH. Anyway, I thought BREAKFAST! Breakfast is a sure thing for me with writing! But now that's not going so well, and now my muse is all, 'maybe a long story would be easier!' because she's contrary. She suggests a version of The Road To DIAMONDS which would basically read like Dancing With The Stars: In The Tradition Of Sally Reeve. Or maybe I just need to restock my cereal cabinet and then breakfast fic will happen? Man, fanfic seems so easy when I don't actually try to write anything in particular.)


Poll #1764785 I blog, therefore I have opinions on things

When people set their comment pages to match their journal design (as opposed to being the plain LJ default), it:

... is awesome! Otherwise I never see their pretty layouts!
... DRIVES ME BATTY. Kill it with fire!
... depends on how ugly/slow-loading/difficult to read it is, so sometimes yes, sometimes no.
... depends on whether or not the journal style allows for instant comment replies on the same page, or if it loads a new page for each comment.
... is neither awesome nor sucky - I have no opinion!
... doesn't matter because I use style=mine on everything anyway!
... leads to a poll (a poll!) where I can enjoy ticking tickyboxes! (tickyboxes!)

I hate it when it's tinytiny text, and the reply box is even tinier. I make a ton of typos and self-correct...when I can see it. Rar.

Agreed!!! or if it's Black on Black or something else silly :(

I also hate when I can't use html tags and the edit button isn't evident because it's a paid only feature - that I use all the time
Little Red: sga - sw shockmylittleredgirl on July 26th, 2011 10:36 pm (UTC)
1) You can only use those if you have a paid account?

2) You don't have a paid account!? Can we start a fund?
Lannalanna_kitty on July 26th, 2011 11:41 pm (UTC)
no I meant that editing a comment is a paid feature and not every journal style has it right there in the display as a link. Ex the one that IR was running with in recent memory didn't have an edit button Right There so I had to like...remember what the url to edit a comment was. :P so usually I just posted addendums or deleted and reposted the comment if I was really serious about editing it. Editing comments is a paid only feature (I'm paid :D IR was not, so IR didn't miss it in her layout)

But I have also come across journals that have styles that override any and all html, so you can't use things like the small tag or itallics or bold or whatever because the CSS of the layout puts any and all comments in lowercase 10 pt Courier or something, and flat out ignores any formatting. formatting isn't a paid feature.

Ohhhhh! Gotcha. It all makes sense now! I have Learned Things. I like not having to look around for stuff, so I'm a fan of the standard LJ post/comment layout. Because I'm lazy!
Little Red: trek - chekov grr! - viresse_iconsmylittleredgirl on July 26th, 2011 10:37 pm (UTC)
Oh my god. KILL THAT WITH FIRE. If I have to copypasta the text into a word document to read it or type in the dang style=mine, I have already lost interest and have probably started some smoldering hatred.

Just realised I never replied to this post to say: yes, my garage is totally full of glitter. :p
