As you have all seen, LJ servers have been moved to Russia and now we (as, the users and the content we post) are all under Russian law. Yay... /o\ This has sparkled many doubts and "mania" amongst users worldwide, so I've decided to make a post about it to give my opinion:

1- No, I won't deactivate my account.
2- No, I won't move it to Dreamwidth (another blogging community that apparently is pretty much a LJ copy but with better TOS). However, I might consider creating an account and making a backup there, as they have an option to export; but it's highly unlikely, because nowadays I barely use this as a blog anyway.
3- Yes, I don't like the new TOS, especially because they say "English translation is not legally binding" which sounds fishy to me, and I can't read the original document as it is in Russian.
4- Yes, I'm a little bit afraid that, as mainly what I do here it's reading and writing about m/m stories, I could be a "target" (term used very losely here) for the Russian biggots. Nevertheless, IMO they will focus their attention in Russian users because, after all, what do they care about a Spaniard girl writing gay porn?
5- However, I might consider stop posting my full stories here and move them once for all to AO3, leaving LJ only for MS and to generally announce my new fics. I'm still thinking about it.
6- I will probably delete all pics I've posted here in which you can see my face (although they aren't many, I'm sure).
7- There are HIGH chances I won't do most of the stuff I've said here simply because I'm so lazy xD

Anyway, hope all of you are okay! Life has been hectic and I have been very little productive, writing wise. I APOLOGISE PROFUSELY FOR MY LONG LIST OF UNREAD NOTIFICATIONS, BECAUSE I KNOW I HAVE COMMENTS TO REPLY. I SUCK AT KEEPING MY LIVEJOURNAL UP TO DATE T__________T But thank you SO MUCH to all of those who commented on my last fic <333

For me, I'm still posting stuff here mainly because like you, I'm too lazy to make such a big move. Sure, the last serious one was when a friend of mine invited me to AO3, but largely after that, it's like... been like this LOL o u o

I know and am aware that they're cracking down on it, but at the same time, which demographic group that they target on is dubious at times. It's like, when you've been here for nearly a decade, you've seen it happen time and time again. And largely, people left LJ because its heydays are over. We're just staying because of a cross between laziness and stubbornness o u o

I still recall that the worst one that others have said was's purge on slash/het fics, especially Real Person ones. That was the reason why AO3 came to exist. And that makes senses considering what is largely designed for o u o;

Idk, I think they would mainly focus on Russians. I mean, what can they do to us, apart from deleting our account?

Anyway, I'm not going anywhere either.

I'm not going anywhere. If people leave en masse, the efforts to revive MS will be for nothing.

Yet, I understand if people wish to leave.

I don't have any plans on leaving either... though I must confess I'm not entirely sure what the new TOS entails? I'm very confused by all of this.
