spn//I love this fandom-moveablehistory


Is there some weird kind of syzygy* going on in the constellations? There must be a reason for all the batshit fen coming out of the woodwork and being even more batshit insane than ever.

I fly under the radar for the most part in SPN fandom, I have no problem with this because if you know me at all you know exactly how I feel about BNFs and wannabe BNFs. But seriously, honey, either the email was paraphrased badly by you, it's a hoax or you made it up.

We all know that at least a couple of people involved in the production are aware not only of online fandom, but specifically of LiveJournal's subsect of online fandom. Why do I say this? Well, lemme see, there would be the whole thank you that those of us who contributed to spn_postcards received, there would be the thank yous the organisers of the various birthday projects have received, there would be the comments made to organisers expressing interest in fandom_rocks and the like. And there's the fact that we all know Kripke's on here somewhere.

The production office are 'au fait' with 'live journal', trust me on this.

I'm not saying that your community wouldn't be recognised, because it is one of the largest communities devoted to the show on LJ, but you are not 'influential' in this fandom. Let's be honest here, a lot of what you do is either illegal or at the very least bordering on the edges of copyright law. It's what the community is known for, it's why - up until this morning - I was a member although I have not posted there for months and it's been off my default view for a lot longer than that. The production company cannot be seen to be supporting the illegal distribution of copyrighted materials, and that my dear, is what your community does.

I fear you've been had, in which case I feel really sorry for you and hope you find whoever has targeted you thus.  I would rather think that - distressing as it may be - than think that you are making this all up in a bid to garner some of the attention that has been rightfully given to fandom_rocks which is after all a charitable exercise.

As I've said, I fly under the radar of this person - aside from a few graphics posts she's commented on we've had no contact. The reason I am not posting this to her community or to her personally is because of who I am friends with. This post is off my own back, no one else has asked me to post this or encouraged me to do so. I am not mentioning names because if this person has been tricked then I would like to save her further embarassment.

*who says TV is bad for the intelligence? I learned that word from watching the X Files. *nods* TV make my brain think good. (although apparently I can't spell...

head-desk - me

I lied. I have to post this, I'm sorry...

So something's up with my webmail access to my moments-lost email account and it seems to have... been deleted. The admin @ one is still active (and that's the point of contact for all the sites (INAP, DX, BX, FX, Sineya and others) but the shona @ moments-lost one is gone. And for some reason I can't set it up again. I have contacted my hosting company (who were great but who now... kinda suck, I may be moving hosts sooner than I anticipated) but what with my lack of access at home, I don't know when/if it'll be fixed. I haven't been able to set up any new moments-lost email accounts at all and there's something seriously screwy there.

So... if you have been using shona @ to contact me, or it's in your address book, then I haven't gotten any of your emails since last Friday.

Please update your contact with the following email address:

shona [at]

Or if you use my Gmail account, that works too.

Sorry about this!

(Since I am the point of contact for all of the sites and I know there are people not on my flist who check my LJ from time to time, I'm leaving this unflocked, but not making the email address a link in a (probably vain) attempt to avoid spam.
