I guess my livejournal must be 13 years old, because Hail to the Thief just started playing and I was viscerally reminded (like a swift kick to the back of the head) how much I listened to this album when I first got a livejournal; how every lyric was layered over Harry Potter fic ideas, how frantically I wrote, how desperately I wanted to please. It's a weirdly nostalgic disorientation, this.

Makes me want to write. :D

I wish my memory was better for internet interactions. I very rarely remember where and when I found people. Do you remember when I found you?

Is it cheating if I answer this? *g*

I have the same issue. I know that some people I've known since the beginning (my BTVS days), but others, I'm like, I've known you forever, but ~how did we meet?!!

I know I ran across you on LJ in SGA. I think there was another user you used to hang out with and I found you through them. Oh oh oh, I remember, did you used to post to [livejournal.com profile] face_of_joe? I bet that was it.

Oh, face_of_joe would have been perfect for Tumblr! Your captions were always so great.

I was in Due South for a short while. About a year. But I was pretty much in a bubble--writing fic and posting about the show on my journal--but not really feeling like part of the fandom. I was definitely part of SGA fandom, so I think I get what you're saying.

Ha ha, I'm recent, so that's easy. But I have online friends like this, too, and we met on... some community back in the day, and neither of us can remember, but it's all good. :)

I've not been reading you for that long, but shamefully I already can't remember how we met...

Milliways, of course! But I don't remember when I started following your personal LJ, or when we started chatting personally. I remember how I found the game (via [livejournal.com profile] strange_selkie, whom I'd friended for saying cool things that got metaquoted), but not how I started talking to a lot of the individual people in it. I know I fangirled your RP writing a good while before we really talked! You were definitely one of the Cool Smart Kids in my head. (You're still cool and smart in my head, but now you're also an AWWWW HI FRIEND person, so.)

...Brains are very silly. Milliways totally came from your brain. All the rest of us piggybacked, in a way! Anyway, indirectly, most of my closest friendships, the fact that I live in the city I live in, and possibly the fact that I've ever had my stories published comes from the unfoldings of a really cool idea you had. So -- thank you and your nifty ideas for that!

I am also glad that I found you and kept you. <3

I do believe I found you walking down the street outside the hotel at Millicon 1.

I'm so glad you started Milliways. I met most of the people I'm still in touch with in this big asshole of a world through that game. ♥

Aw, I know where you found me. I seem to recall you're the one who persuaded me to "No, go on, really, don't just watch the community, give a character journal a try" back in late June 2004.

It was through Katie, I think? I remember you being on the phone with her when she was visiting me one time. I think she introduced us because we both liked...something? Was it NCIS or before? Bloody hell my memory is pants.

(Lol, I am checking my DW and the first mention of you ever is by Katie in 2008 when she says how you concussed yourself in the shower. STOP CONCUSSING YOURSELF WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?)

I have established we definitely knew each other towards the end of 2009 because we wrote each other fic in the September. I...have no clue how we got to there though. Jeez, brain. Do better.

for you and I, it's recent enough so all is good.

but for the rest of my LJ/DW peeps? I generally only have a vague 'it must have been when I was in that fandom' sense of time. ugh. I feel your pain ;)
