I listened to the new FOB song, and man, I'd forgotten how much fun Fall Out Boy music is. I took most of it off my iPod when I fell out of bandom, because fandom burn-out hits me that way. I get self-conscious and discomforted by even reminders of this thing I was so massively enamored of, and need to insulate myself for a while before I can get free air again.

With Harry Potter it took about two (three?) years, and then I hit the delighted nostalgia stage and started reading HP fic again. I still didn't properly go back to my old OTPs, but there was new fic to read and there were worlds of old fic for ships I hadn't been into at the time, and the HP world was this fondly familiar but also novel space to kick around in.

I think I'm maybe getting close to the nostalgic stage for bandom now too. I've been eyeing some of my old recs at pinboard, and wondering if I'd like to reread them. Especially the femslash that I got into right at the end of my bandom stint. I was thinking maybe even some My Chem, since that was less my haunt than Panic, but then apparently My Chem fandom had some kind of meltdown about Mikey Way and I thought lol no. Not right now.

Stilllllll. Bandom. It was pretty great.

For the "candy" square in my cottoncandy bingo card.

Sollux didn’t plan to start Fourth Year playing terrible travel games with Slytherin aristocracy, but the honour of Ravenclaw House is at stake. Apparently.

Hey guys, psychen16 has just finished translating my Harry/Draco fics The If Sieve and Mirror Maze into Chinese.

I don't know whether there's anybody following my English-language journal to whom this is helpful, but I'm so delighted when somebody puts work into making something new out of one of my stories, and translation is an especially excellent gift to fandom, since it opens doors I never could. (Also, The If Sieve is my second-longest fic, so that's a tonne of work.) So, yeah, check them out if you read more Chinese than me ♥
