Importing

So with all the "when in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout"ing about deleting and importing LJ accounts, it's definitely prompted me to finally do the importing thing that I've avoided so long. I had planned a while ago to stop giving LJ my money anymore, but here's the thing I can't find information about:

Can I import only the stuff that wasn't originally posted at DW and thus crossposted to LJ? I don't want to overwrite the original DW post with the LJ post if I can avoid it, and it's one of the main reasons I've never done this. I have quite a few years of LJ before I started posting from DW and cross-posting to LJ. I'm afraid that if I overwrite all the original DW posts, I'll lose all those comments, won't I? I have, for years, had way more comments in DW to a post than to LJ.

Also, I'm assuming I will lose all my memories of my own LJ posts, the ones I saved for easy access, if LJ goes away? Is there actually a way to back up the memories? Because for a couple years I was doing a lot of usage and writing posts, and that was way before tags, and movie recs, and the only way I have of finding those is to use the memories section where I saved them all by title.

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place but I can't see any of this being addressed. Also, I have no time, I'm on deadline and way behind on both my work projects, so…I guess this isn't happening right away.

If you find a way to do so, could you let me know? I've already imported my posts/comments to DW, but I don't see a way of importing my memories and that makes my heart hurt because I used the lj memory bank to store thousands of posts over the years. I really don't want to lose them all.
