I meant to do this the other day and allowed myself to be completely sidetracked, then forgot! Doh! Such a bad case of internet-brain... especially as I’m really excited to share this with you!
My story is called Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness, and here’s a line to hopefully tempt y’all to subscribe to the book:

Sign-ups are open for the 2017-2018 Dean Winchester Big Bang!

Author Sign-up

Artist Sign-up

Beta Sign-up

This is a Bang to celebrate the complex, amazing, heroic eldest Winchester brother.

Sign-ups are open now and will run until July 1st.

Ship fics are welcome, Gen fics are totally welcome - the important thing is that the main focus of the story is Dean himself.

As it was last year, there are two different bangs - Big (minimum 10k and 2 pieces of art) and Mini (minimum 5k and 1 piece of art).

The rest of the rules/FAQ can be found here.

I do have an updated schedule posted to the blog, with check ins and all that - but posting will begin in February of 2018.

There will be some changes to the event to make it run more smoothly than it did last year, including more email communication.

If you have any questions at all - feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back to you!

FLISTIE ALERT!

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] hugemind at The new TOS
It would be really helpful, if someone who actually knows the section of law mentioned in the new TOS posted to say what the new TOS really means. I have no idea what might result, but the new TOS states that Russian laws now rule and I have a really bad feeling about things. For example, there is this one ominous and bolded part in the new TOS (8.4) that for popular communities, "Community (the Community’s page) within 24 hours, the Community Owner shall be subject to Article 10.2 of the Federal Act of the Russian Federation No. 149-FЗ if more than three thousand Internet users access". Also, people who made comments in communities are according to 8.5 "subsidiarily liable in respect of Community Supervisor’ actions" whatever the heck that means. 9.1.3 says to mark as adult content everything that estimated by the Russian law is not suitable for kids. I don't much about them laws, but I do know that this means all same-sex content regardless of nature of the content (i.e. not just NC-17 or PG-13).

So I think that based on the above especially community owners really need to sit down and consider their option on what to do now. Especially owners of fic communities where people have posted fic in the community or ones that have unlabeled adult content (esp. same-sex), really need to make decisions based on the current incomplete information both to protect themselves and the people who have commented there. One specific example is the kink memes. Those could be lost soon and whatever the TOS mean, it could be also not good for the comm owner. It would probably not be a bad idea to save your absolute favorites from them.

If things start to go down, they may go down quickly as people may opt to be on the safer side and f-lock/delete/disappear. I urge everyone to consider the nature and extent of the content they have posted in their personal LJ/communities they own. To have at least some breathing room and not lose things dear to them/others, I recommend opening a dreamwidth account now and importing all your entries there. The process might take a bit time if many people are importing at the same time, but it is very simple to do and runs in the background after you tell it which parts of your LJ stuff you want to import (entries, comments(!), tags etc.). For communities, the community owner has to create a new comm at dreamwidth and then they can also import the community from LJ. Very simple but from what I see you need have accepted the new TOS for the import process to be able to verify your lj credentials. You can also automatically cross-post your entries from dw to lj and run both of them in parallel. The problem is that some communities have been abandoned and the owners are not around to import them. If you know these kind of communities, contact the people running them ask them to consider importing the content to dreamwidth.

Back things up somehow (dreamwidth, LJ export tool whatever) if you don't want to lose them, and if possible, grab at least your top five fave fics/posts you know are not available outside LJ. Backing up is always a smart thing to do, and I hope that this is not needed, but if it is, at least your content will not be lost. Don't fiddle too much with the style settings or anything that can be straightened out later. Rebuild your friend network the best you can, so there will be ways to get the word out where you are and what is going on. Spread the word that the TOS situation should be monitored carefully and the time to act with back ups is right now. Consider that communities that have become large databases of information (like [livejournal.com profile] spnstoryfinders, [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang or the kink memes) might be gone soon if not for the new TOS then for people reacting to the TOS.

Maybe a new dw comm could be helpful to inform fannish people of their options, get people in contact with LJ community owners, and organize campaigns to back up content. Or maybe there already is one in which case, please link me. I don't want to panic anyone but just to recommend people to be prepared and ready to move to another platform if we suddenly receive a word that it is the absolute best thing to do. In that case we can then leave in organized fashion. Personally, I have imported my LJ (with comments) to DW, exported my LJ entries as XML using the export tool, imported also [livejournal.com profile] spnematography to dw (under the same name), exported those entries as csv files, and I will try to figure out what more to do after I get back from work.

I am at dreamwidth and AO3 under this same username and over at twitter as underpurplesky. Feel free to friend me and/or leave me your information so I can friend you if I already haven't. I might be moving, but I am not leaving the fandom.

SPN fandom readers and writers

Hey, guys! We’re trying to put together a project for our fandom’s readers and writers, where we’ll be collecting 100 writers to each create a short piece of fic or poetry (gen and canon-compliant) that will then all be compiled into a book that people will be able to get for themselves, with net profits going towards a charitable cause. If you’re interested, you can check out this post for more detailed information, or take a look at our blog pages!

In the meantime, if you’re at all interested or know people who might be, please reblog this post to spread the word! We want to get as many people as we can on board with this to make it the best final product it can be.

i don't know about everyone else, but I'd love to have a book containing your amazing writing, dear flisties, so consider giving this a go! And spread the word.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] excoyote at Excoyote (brokenlittleboy, transgendersam, theo, etc.) is doing commissions + Patreon!


COMMISSIONS!

I can create fanfiction and original fiction of all genres, running from 1,000 words to 100,000+. I’m a practiced gifmaker, and I can make gifs, gifsets, and colorful graphics of all kinds, including ones that come with their own playlists! This past yr I wrote 200k+ of original work and made 200+ gifs.

I’m running commissions because I recently got into the school of my dreams, Stanford, but I haven’t been given any financial aid. Without it, I can’t afford to go. I’m happy to create anything and everything to help raise money for college. I don’t know if my family’s situation will be the same in a year, so this money makes all the difference.

If it’s more your thing, I’m also running a Patreon page with goodies for pledgers!

★FANFICTION

My writing can be found here (fics, poems and misc.) and here (AO3). Some pieces you may know: Merry Sexmas, Sammy & Don’t Throw Me Overboard, Baby

My specialties include wincest, j2, and Sam-centric fanfiction, but I am willing to do everything! I’m capable of crack, smut, angst, fluff, realistic, AUs, etc. Any rating or content is fine with me. 1,000 words is $10 as a base price, any more words or plot specifics are negotiable. For example, a 20k Wincest fic Space AU with specific twists and kinks would be $45. I can deliver in chaptered installments or one final product, and it can be put on my AO3 or a private PDF. Under 5k can be completed in 24 hrs. Each additional 2k is +1 day. Longer pieces are better suited to installments because they take more time.

★ORIGINAL FICTION

I have one book up on Amazon called Jay’s Epiphany. It’s realistic LGBT romance fiction and listed at 99 cents if anyone is interested. The rates and word counts for original fiction are the same as fanfiction. Original fiction I cannot publish on AO3 so it is only available as a doc or a PDF. The time needed for fiction is the same as fanfiction.

★GIFS, GIFSETS, GRAPHICS, & PLAYLISTS

You can check out all of my work here, and my gifs here. Some pieces you may know: one, two, three. Individual gifs are $2, and gifsets, graphics, and playlists are between $4 and $15 depending on complexity. Everything can be completed within 24 hours unless I’m swamped, never more than 3 days.

Thank you SO MUCH for supporting me! I only accept PayPal, and inquiries and payments (upfront, please) can be sent to alpoling@wccnet.edu or my tumblr. I also accept donations <3. If you’re not interested in a commission, reblogging and liking this post supports me just as much. The commission request form is below the cut!

We're struggling again this month, work missed off 26 hours out of my pay packet and are refusing to send me the excess until my next payday. We're very close to the line again this month so wondering if anyone would like a piece from me to help tide us over. My mother is now allowing me to use her PayPal account which can be given on request, or alterntively a bank transfer will work. We can also accept Western Union Money orders now.

Pre-warning, there are some NSFW pictures in the albums.

For someone who's been around in Fandom forever, and finds herself in dire straits.

I know it's a bad time of year to be asking for money, but what's #SPNfamily for if you can't ask for help when you need it.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] digitalwave at Emergency help for a friend and fellow fan...

I know you may have seen some of Mandy's posts about this but [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon's family situation gets more dire by the day. Last month Mandy lost her job because they had an unexpected car breakdown which caused her to miss work. Her hubby was working but his salary alone wasn't enough to cover their regular expenses on top of the car repairs. Mandy has been trying to find work but the holidays are a tough time to be unemployed.

Because of everything piling up they weren't able to pay their December rent and now this month's rent is due as well. They've just recently gotten their eviction notice from their apartment manager. In order to not lose their home they have to pay last month, this month and the 'cost' of court filings for the apartment complex. Their normal rent is $700.00 per month so, at best, they're looking at needing $1600.00.

We're going to be calling every organization, every church, that we can think of here in Louisville that might be able to help. I know that this is a bad time of year, a lot of them are already tapped out. But, I have to try. I can't just stand by and do nothing. What worries me the most is that they have two little guys and it looks more certain every day that they'll lose their home without some kind of miracle happening.

Mandy is a good, kind person who is doing her best to provide for her family. Thankfully, she's even got the prospect of a new job. One of the temp agency's she's registered with has called about a position that would start this Sunday. But, even if she's lucky enough to get it, any pay she earns wouldn't be soon enough to help them keep their home.

She shouldn't be facing something like this alone. Please, please, if anyone would like to help, even if it's just a couple of dollars, her PayPal address is phoenixdragondreams@gmail.com.

Most importantly, if you wouldn't mind, help me pass the word about this along. I give blanket permission for you to share this post wherever you can. The more people that see it, the better chance we have at getting her some help. I don't want them to end up homeless with two little boys depending on them.

*hugs you all tightly*

Calling all artists! Don't forget the deadline for submissions is nearly upon us!
We've got a load of fabulous art already tucked away, waiting for the mayhem of claims day - but as usual, we have more writers signed up than artists, so every piece between now and close of play on 18th November is going to be welcomed with open arms!

Spread the word, let's get cracking with those paintbrushes, Photoshop apps, manipping, knitting, papier mache or whatever medium you fancy!

I couldn't think of a fancy title for this design, but I've loaded it onto Redbubble regardless.
