and I've rediscovered that even looking at my old stuff?
gives me horrible sinking feeling nausea and argh breathing and wtf near panic attack???
and this would be why I haven't corrected the weird lack of speech marks in one of my Ao3 fics, but I didn't realise it was generally applicable.
All? My old things? Panic now?
And a quick search also found yet more copies on websites I've never been connected to and have no control over, so, that's... a thing.
I know what the internet is like, I just don't always know why they bother.
So this is... unhelpful.
But also highlights one reason I like these journal sites better, since I don't have to wade through the front page with my dad's obituary linked from it just to, you know, post, or read last week, or anything.
I could change at least one copy of said site to not mention said obit, but (a) I usually need to look it up to remember when exactly he died, since it was 1998, and (b) every other page I looked at had its own variety of effect.
I think it's just that any bit of life had its own problems, and being precariously balanced amidst current problems, I can really do without adding more.
But the thing that makes most panic is when pages aren't there anymore, so, *sigh*
