Here we go...

26th September 2006 (01:13)

There are few things in the world more intimidating than a blank screen, or a blank sheet of paper, waiting to be filled. Unless you're one of those people who see them as inviting instead, I suppose - in which case I hate you forever. I was tempted to write something clichéd here for my first entry, like "Hello World!" or " Is this thing on?", but then I realised people might think I was being all post-modern and ironic instead of just stuck for inspiration. So, no.

So what will I be writing about here? Quite possibly nothing at all, if inspiration continues to not strike. Or maybe a few things about Buffy the Vampire Slayer and related shows. And I'll probably be pimping my fanvids, which also have a Buffyesque theme to them. And maybe other stuff too.

Who knows?

Hello! :) I'm so glad you took the plunge and look forward to even more fun discussions.

LJ really is fairly straightforward as these things go - the FAQ is pretty good for a start, and people are always very helpful. (And *I* figured out how to use it and I'm a html moron!)

Now all you have to do is friend some people. :)

But I'm shy. ;)

(You can imagine that spoken in a Vamp!Willow voice, if you like)

Anyway, thanks for the welcome. :)

elisi sent me... Welcome to LJ. *Waves welcome banner* I hope you have a thoroughly enjoyable time here.

And don't worry about the whole friending thing - (shamelessly stolen from "Field of Dreams") - If you write, then they will come...!

Stephen, just wanted to say Hi and welcome to LJland. Came via Elisi's post. I pretty much lurk on the NG and have have enjoyed your posts the last couple of months. Looking forward to your musings here!

Sent by elisi to say...hello! Welcome to LJ! I hope your stay here is just as enjoyable as you hope it to be, and that the people you meet are as warm and pervy welcoming as they were to me, lo, those many (ie: 3) years ago. :0D

Welcome to LJ Land! It's nice to see a fellow usenet junkie in da house. I'm sure inspiration will strike at least once in awhile, and I had no idea you did fanvids. Do you have a link to them? I'll definitely have to check them out.

Being another reader of elisiand latterly a dabbler in the news group. Hi.

And I downloaded your Tara/Willow vid - brilliant concept and the ending, it hurts.

Glad you liked it. :) The ending is a odd thing, really; I've shown the vid to a few people who aren't big Buffy-fans, and the general reaction is that it has a happy ending: I mean, Tara's standing there all smiling and happy.

It's only us obsessive fans who know that 5 seconds later she gets shot through the heart, and that lends a certain poignancy to the ending...

A general comment to everyone who's said hello: thank you for the welcome! I'll probably be following links and reading people's ljs and stuff over the next few days.

Oh, and anybody who wants to friend me, feel free...as I understand it, it basically means you automatically get to read anything new I write? Well, if you really, really, want to do that, all I can say is go ahead. :)

It also means we can invite ourselves over for supper anytime we want. No, really. I hope Thursday works for you! :0P

You don't scare me. I know you're in Canada...

(Actually, after looking at your LJ, maybe you do scare me a little...) ;)

Hello! I just posted something about icons that will no doubt make you look on me with well-deserved scorn. Oh, well. Welcome to LJ and fandom over here!

Just dropping in to welcome you, having been notified of your arrival in lj-land by elisi. I've been enjoying your pithy posts on the Buffy ng (where I occasionally posted as maxims) and used to enjoy them on afp (elisi tells me the Stephen Tempest I remember from those days is indeed you). So welcome. I hope you have fun.

Howdy! You come highly recommended, and I am friending. (I bow down before anyone who can make vids--I am clueless with the visual stuff.)

Hello, and welcome! But be careful: this LJ-thing can become quite addictive, as some of us have already found out.
