(Yes, I realize your measure of coolness may differ from mine. :P)
Anyway, I actually tried to buy a Dreamwidth account, and was foiled at every turn. I couldn't log in with OpenID, and when I had a one-month account in my cart and went to PayPal, somehow the payment disappeared and I was back to an empty cart (and PayPal says no money was sent).
Dreamwidth Studios doesn't seem to play well with other sites.
So, if any of you have a fancy-schmancy Dreamwidth account and one of those cool, spiffy invite codes, do you think you could spare one for me? (Email is Inverarity68 at yahoo dot com.)
I am not exactly sure what I'll do with it if I get one, but I'll probably start by seeing if the import-from-LJ feature actually works.
It is possible I may at some point decide to transition either to DW or to another (paid) LJ account.
I've avoided getting personal or political on my LJ, and I do want to maintain a site that's purely for fan fiction. However, as some of you know, I can be drawn into debates, and sometimes I do want to rant about something other than crazy Snape fans.
I've kept my personal opinions off of this LJ mostly to avoid alienating people with different views. (And trust me, I have very different views from some of y'all.) I won't start making heads explode until and if I have a separate site where those of you who only want to read about my writing can go, and tra-la-la-la-la past the fact that if we started talking about religion or politics, there would be blood on the floor.
I'm not sure whether I'd leave this site as the fan fiction-only one, or use the new one as my pimp site, and turn this one into the soapbox. But I'll give plenty of warning so those of you who don't want to be heartbroken by my horribly wrong and bad political/religious views (or spanked for your horribly wrong and bad political/religious views :P) can change your bookmarks/subscriptions/RSS feeds accordingly.
