|SAVE THE FICTIONAL CHILDREN

Oh LJ ... sometimes, you really make me wonder.
I have been avoiding LJ for the last little while in order to keep myself spoiler free for Deathly Hallows (I had major things from OotP and HBP spoiled for me here), and am just now catching up on all this drama now that I've finished the book. For the sake of my own sanity I am choosing to remain outside of this issue, though I don't believe I will renew my paid journal when it expires in December.
The thing that irks me the most about the whole debacle is the rampant inconsistencies in LJ/6A's TOS enforcement. They can randomly strike down some fanartists for pictures that were, honestly, no worse than anything else I've seen on LJ, and still defend such things as the pro-anaorexia communities. I spent a good deal of time reading through some of these comms from the links viewpoints had up, and it disgusts me. *sigh* I wonder when LJ turned from a place where fandoms could come together and share to a place where we are no longer welcome.
And for now, that is all I have to say about it :3
In awesome news, only 11 days until I go to Seattle, and 14 days until PAX. EXCITING. Once again something has prevented me from attending CNA - I have yet to attend that con in my life - but I think PAX will be an entirely different con experience then I am used to. Sadly, cosplay seems to be shunned - reserved for those "scary anime people" - and I am not really bold enough to do it in the face of opposition.
And speaking of cosplay, I had lots of fun at the cosplay picnic on Saturday. It was awesome to see everyone, dispite the fact that I was too lazy/hot to actually wear a costume.
