But I think I'm going to give it a try and see if I can figure out the ways well enough here to actually interact with people!

Hello, mid0nz! To me, LJ is like coming home to 221B after chasing the Golem in the funhouse planetarium that is tumblr. ;-) Sure, there are only a couple of people living here, but that's not always a bad thing.

I'm following you on tumblr, silently due to being > 30. I've added you as a friend here, I hope that's OK.

Well the comments threads make it much easier to actually have sensible conversation, so there is that. Plus you can friend lock posts if you don't want a huge fuss about a post, or you can use the Sherlock comms to draw attention to the ones you do want all and sundry to discuss. PS it's lovely to see you over here :)

And because it moves slower, you know the all-important-real-life post you've just made isn't going to be lost in the thousands of reblogs of Benedict Cumberbatch doing something adorkable. Less Benedict, but much greater chance of actually getting to know someone, instead of just knowing what they like.

Shall friend you over here as well, if you don't mind. :) And I've been here forever, feel free to ask for help if you need it!

No, absolutely ask away. LJ can be less intuitive than Tumblr (and knowing a bit of basic HTML definitely helps, especially for comments) but I do like it a lot better for conversations, both private and public.

And anyway, I'm motivated to make sure people are comfortable over here, because then they will stay!

Generally, yes - it's a reference to a post that only the people you've friended can see. But you can also set up levels of lock - there's a default f-lock, which is everyone you've friended. You also have the ability to set up custom locks, so that only a specific segment of your f-list can read your posts. (Custom friends groups FAQ here) This makes it handy if there's information you want to share, but don't necessarily want to share with everyone - I have locks for family only, for non-family only, for people who know me in real-life, for various fandoms, etc.

The link can tell you a little more about them, including how to set them up. When you add additional friends, you'll have the option to include them on various custom groups you create.

[livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc and [livejournal.com profile] our_bbcsherlock are good - the first is very active. [livejournal.com profile] sherlock60 is a good comm, it's where people are reading all sixty of the original canon stories every week and write a 60-word story for each. (I did it for a bit when I had more time, I keep meaning to go back.) I think Kizzia knows a few others I'm not in that are character specific.

Most comms aren't locked to members, so you can browse recent entries and decide if you want to add them or not.

Oh! [livejournal.com profile] holmesian_news is a good overview comm, it gives a daily digest of links for all parts of the Sherlock Holmes fandom (Elementary/Granada/ADC, etc).

Right, well [livejournal.com profile] our_bbcsherlock is definitely still going because I'm a mod. [livejournal.com profile] watsons_woes is a great com for all Watson related angst and hurt/comfort fic. [livejournal.com profile] holmesian_news does a daily round up of everything posted at the active come, so subscribing means you won't miss anything and can see any others that are active that I've forgotten. If I think of any more I'll shout!

Ah, Az got their first. Adding [livejournal.com profile] come_at_once which is a porn challenge com - 24 hrs to write porn of any description in any incarnation of Sherlock with any pairing from a prompt given by the previous person. Current challenge is running right now (sign ups closed but the writing is happening), so it's a good chance to see if you'd be interested, or just pick up some good stories.

Hello and welcome!
I've enjoyed your presence on tumblr, I hope it's ok to add you in here, too!

Date: 2014-06-19 02:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] gratiela.livejournal.com
Nope, over there I'm lustforlife13, since Gratiela was already taken (by a person who has very little in common with me :))) But never mind, I barely posted anything personal, just reblogging Sherlock and feminist stuff

Of course you do love feminism and Sherlock - that's why I follow you :D
And yeah, definitely I'm posting personal things on LJ. I will add you to my personal filter, in case you want to find out some more about me.

Back to LJ haha it's as if we never left ;) Convos are much easier here, and it stays in one place so if you need to amend what you said everyone will see it, and also all the comments and discussions, you don't have people chiming in after the fact with a point you've already addressed (as much). xo

So I might occasionally drop by to peek at your country home :) Never tried LJ before, so not sure what I am going to do here. We'll see.

Oh that's nice of you to say that :) Well so far it's been quite good. But it was so in early days of tumblr. Well it was so until just last few months on tumblr. So I'll see how this goes.

Hey, hon! This is Starrla89 from tumblr. I'm hardly ever on my LJ anymore, but I'm adding you as a friend. I do still check in here, just not as often as tumblr. :)

hello

Hi,
I follow your blog on Tumblr. I'm midgemao there. I am a trained academic living outside academia and I enjoy your columns and discussions. I am too old and too lazy to follow all the other stuff when it starts flying. I haven't been back to LJ in quite a while, not since it seemed that almost all the Sherlock fic writers had migrated to AO3 and Tumblr. Thank you for bringing me back and happy writing.
Best,
M

I'm following you on Tumblr and felt really sorry for all the hate you've been receiving these past few weeks - from my point of view simply because people were too lazy to even try to understand what you were saying, but obviously not too lazy to rant about it, which is always a bad thing imo. Anyway, I hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend here on LJ.

dear mid0nz, came from tumblr. im a silent reader and i dont want to miss a thing...

Date: 2014-06-30 01:48 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] ennisnovember.livejournal.com
not so much mysterious as just ... silent. i dont talk much, either in rl or online, because there are always people who are talking about things, important and dear to me, in a much nicer and clearer way. so i go find them, and "listen"...
"sherlock" is important and dear to me. your metas and your posts about cinematography made me see so much more. it made me discover why some scenes are so satisfying, that its in the light and frames and music... its wonderful.

So glad you are here! Don't get me wrong, this is just so much more convinient to have an actual conversation on LJ. As I started to fangirl about Sherlock, I came to Tumblr because of the meta I found there, yours as well. Never felt home there, though. I think, I am rather a country house person. Should we open a bottle of a good country wine and welcome you here? ;)

ME TOO. After the fifteen-thousandth person on Tumblr said they were moving some stuff over here, I thought I'd break my lifelong fear of creating or commenting on LJ and give it a try? And try to interact, etc! But I am very confused. Any beginners' tips you (or anyone) has gleaned in the past week or two would be wonderful.

Hi! I'm a very quiet, over the average age, British Sherlock fan, who joined Tumblr (as smallpearl) primarily for Sherlock news and meta. Would very much like to follow you here on LJ also. :-)
