From [ profile] mynuet, cribbed from the glorious example of [ profile] abigail89:

Put into the subject line of a comment the name of someone in fandom that you think highly of - yourself or someone else - and then put into the comment itself something nice about that person. Check whether there's a thread for that person already or not, but otherwise go for it! Even if you've never talked to this person and just want to fangirl them for a moment, go for it! We all need to be fangirled sometimes. :)

If you put this on your own journal, please link back so that we can follow the chain o' niceness around.

Ordinarily I'm not all that sure about mass-memes of this nature. That's my disclaimer.

But this struck me as a really nice thing to do, and a timely antidote to the recent upheaval in the Potterverse.

I started thinking of the qualities of this person and that person, this other person and still another person, and it turned into a huge chain of really cool stuff about all of you -

So I'm pulling the whole damn flist.

For one reason or another, you're hanging on over here, and I just want you all to know that I deeply appreciate that. You respond to my errant thoughts and support my fic-ly doings/angst. You understand about piggs. Even if you don't necessarily follow the latest triumph or despair, various fanwanking or silly posts, you're still on my list and you allow me to be on yours, even if I seem to fall off the face of the earth sometimes due to other parts of RL surging to the fore. Even if you head off one day, thank you for being part of this lj. It's all good.

And all of this can create a vast feeling of connectivity that transcends the world - and when that happens, it's just glorious.


ETA: Apparently when it says to put a name in a comment, it means any comment in regards to this meme. *doh* I think I thought it would just be a bunch of separate ljs linked. Well, too bad. If you put this on your own journal, I'll fangirl you, so there!
