A Lot Posty Lately...

April 22nd, 2009 (05:54 pm)

current mood: amused

Mostly because I want to try things out over on Dreamwidth, which is why even more nothing than usual is getting posted. ^^;; (Although this time it's not X-posted as I suddenly realised I'm posting imgs that're on LJ. :P )

In any case, thought folks might be interested in what's up on Cobalt's Wonderful Men Fair (at least what part I can access) for Edgar. :P (Link has a more complete image. It's in pieces, so here's the relevant info).

The young man who carries the title 'the Blue Knight Earl'. He's a womaniser who uses(?) his bewitching looks and sharp mind to sweet-talk women, and he's left behind countless famous lines. However, ever since falling in love with the soft-hearted fairy doctor Lydia, he's been completely devoted to her.

From 12 o'clock around clockwise, the categories are kindness [<-- Edgar?? *laughs* Only as long as you're on his good side, and even then that's not a sure thing! --S], wealth, charisma, passion, and selfishness.

"You must know, right? Just how much I love you."

Isn't he? Hopefully, they'll come up with a chibi-Lydia, chibi-Raven, and chibi-Kelpie some day. :P You can find the banner with Edgar on it on the Fair page. ^_^

Ah! You made an icon of the chibi Edgar! Too cute! I was thinking of making one myself.

Kindness from Edgar is a haphazard thing at best. When he's good, he's very very good. But when he's bad, he's horrid. (He really needs a golden curl on his forehead. LOL)

*laughs* I couldn't resist, he's too cute. :P Unfortunately, I can't grab the splash page graphics. >.> They change during 'tea time' in Japan (starting ~10PM MDT, not sure if it might start earlier and it goes for at least 3 hours). That's when you can access the 'other' content... if you have the appropriate service, that is. ^^;

But when he's bad, he's horrid.

It's very shiny and new, so it has that fascinating appeal to it. ^_^ There are some features over there that I really like (modular layout design, X-posting, different friending system), but since it's still in closed beta, the roof's not up yet, and there are definitely some bugs. ^^; Even so, the developers are very open about what's happening and why they're doing things, which is really nice.

Dreamwidth won't be for everyone though. ^_^ Even though there's a lot of hype and I'm posting a fair amount about it / because of it, it's still quite empty since there aren't anywhere near as many users yet. You can use your LJ ID to log in over there (Open ID login) and take a look around (including establish a reading list of journals / communities / feeds, and set up a profile), but you won't be able to see the changes dealing with journals.

Ultimately, if I really do like it and want to maintain a definite presence there, I'm thinking about using DW to take over a couple of much less-used accounts on LJ. (This account's a permanent one.) Also, FWIW, I'm poking around a fair amount over there *because* I lucked out and got into the closed beta. ^^;

*laughs* Not quite. Open ID is actually available through a number of blogging and other sites (I think Yahoo offers it as well...?). More than wanting LJ folks to join (because they're not LJ), they want people to join because of what they have to offer. ^_^
