Good afternoon.

I've been avoiding my DW and LJ.

The reasons for doing this evade me, but I realised that this is what I'd been doing.

Due to that behaviour I'd actually been neglecting some of my dearest and oldest friends from my own online life.

It's a terrible feeling, realising this sort of thing.

Work has been eating my life and sometimes the very quick and instant gratification of spaces like twitter and tumblr have been more convenient. But I miss you guys and I know it's up to me to rekindle the love for DW and LJ and to make them welcoming again.

I look forward to doing just that, and I figure the 1st of March is a good time to (re)begin again.

Can't wait to get to do all this again.

A few months ago, and I suspect by now it was actually last year, I wanted to help revive DW and LJ.

I then promptly fucked off to while my days on twitter and tumblr. Go me. I can see the effects in my writing here, it's all short sentences and tiny thoughts.

I've always liked big, long, and meandering thoughts, the kind that span the entire line of a page and make you want to see what the next thought will be. I don't know if that effect is managed all that well, but one tries.

I figure this is a good opportunity to reintroduce myself to the people here, some of you are really new and we never got the chance to really talk to you before I decided instant gratification was more satisfying than the slow build of comment threads.

So, who am I?!?!

The question of the ages, as it's wont to be.

First thing, I'm Mel, I've been on LJ and DW for a number of years, and they share the moniker of "eumelia". As you may have noticed.

I generally brain dump and talk about feelings regarding my life, my fandom, my politics. All of these are deeply intertwined.

It's really due to my job that I've hardly been writing here, my time is limited and I'm generally exhausted most of the time due to the long hours that I work. I work for a large internet company and I spend many hours on the internet reading the news. Yep, I'm living the dream.

I'm a lesbian-bisexual-queer cis woman, yes all of those things, at the same time. I'm also gay. I'm feminist. I'm Jewish and have a great deal of white privilege due to the fact that I'm Israeli. I vehemently oppose my country's occupation of the Palestinian people and have a great longing towards the the Diaspora. Israel doesn't always feel like home, I suspect no place on God's green earth will ever feel like like home.

I'm atheist. That's important to me because I spend many years wanting to believe and not understanding why it didn't make sense to me. And yes, it's really easy being a Jewish atheist, because the former is an ethnicity and a culture and the religion is part of it, and even opposing the religious doctrines doesn't make me any less of a Jew, just like incorporating tradition doesn't make me any less of an atheist.

I'm a fangrrl. I squee. I also harsh squees, like a champion. I'm okay with being that person. My current fandom is "Hawaii Five-0" and yeah, I'm still surprised at that, as I'm not really a procedural person. But it's inspired me to write and my identification with one of the characters has kept me going for a while now.

I have PTSD. I don't really "suffer from it", I dislike that term when it comes to things that make my brain the way it is. I've been living with it since 2006 and what it's a bit hard to explain how it affects my day to day life. But if you're curious or want to know something, I'm not shy about talking about it.

I think that's the biggest things. I may have forgotten something. Do feel free to introduce yourselves here, I'd like to get to know the new peeps and just catch up with the old peeps. You know who you are.

I love you all.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
