The 5th Annual WAFF-a-Thon is upon us! Go leave a Warm And Fuzzy Feeling prompt and get a Warm And Fuzzy Feeling fill! Or write one for someone else! Or do a haiku, or a manip, or icon, or fanmix, or whatever else makes you feel warm and fuzzy! Spread some sunshine on the Internet!

Tentacles! Tentacles for everyone! *skips about, strewing tentacle confetti*

[livejournal.com profile] tentacle_fest is having a Tentacle Gift Exchange! What better way to celebrate the winter holiday of your choice by sharing the tentacle love? Sign-ups are now through November 9th, with assignments going out on the 11th. Gifts are due on the 6th of January.

It's a modest gift exchange, with stories only needing to be 500 words, vids at like 45 seconds or so, a small group of icons, fanmix, a few headers or wallpapers, or really, anything else you want to make.

Rules are here
Sign-ups are here

Go on and sign up! We're waiting for you with many, many, many open arms. :D

All right, y'all, if you've ever wanted to see the Avengers crewing Serenity, Sydney Bristow and Sherlock Holmes comparing acting careers, or Sam and Dean Winchester hunting down Sylar, then this is the fic exchange for you!

[livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange is here again. Go nominate your fandoms today, and get your brains thinking for the sign-ups!

ZOMBIES!

Yeah. Zombies. Awesome.

It's that time of year again! The marvelous [livejournal.com profile] aurilly is running the extremely superb [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange, which is only the most fun and interesting fic exchange you'll participate in!

Want a story about Dr. Horrible as the engineer on Serenity? The Criminal Minds gang trying to catch Magneto? Neal Caffrey somehow managing to steal the TARDIS? Sydney Bristow trying to resist a dream extraction from the Inception crew? Then this is the exchange for you!

Hope on over today and fill out the sign up form. You won't regret it! :D
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (Half-Decent Storyline)
Hey howdy hey! It's that time again, [livejournal.com profile] originalfic_las and [livejournal.com profile] nbc_las have new fic up to read and vote upon!

Also, several LAS communities are either starting new rounds or new communities are opening up. A couple that look rather fun, in my humble opinion, are the [livejournal.com profile] crossovers_las and [livejournal.com profile] kink_las. If you're interested in signing up, head over to [livejournal.com profile] las_updates and look for the sign-up link on the left side. Happy ficcing!

Hey y'all! Just reminding anyone who's a Heroes writer than the winter round of [livejournal.com profile] heroes_exchange closes today! So get on over there and sign up! :D
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (LegenWaitForItDary)
It's that time again! [livejournal.com profile] nbc_las and [livejournal.com profile] originalfic_las have new stories up that are just dying to be read and voted upon! Drop by and take a read. :)
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (So Let It Be Written)
I wanted to let y'all know that voting is taking place in a couple of the Last Author Standing communities, NBC shows ([livejournal.com profile] nbc_las) and Original Fiction ([livejournal.com profile] originalfic_las). There's a ton of interesting stories to read in both communities, the theme for NBC's being "[character] loses a bet" and Original Fiction's being "change." Take a read and vote for your most a least favorites! :)
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (Default)
So, there's a new community that recently opened up, one that makes you wonder: Why the hell hasn't anyone done this before? It's the International Language and Culture Exchange, [livejournal.com profile] ilc_exchange. Ever wonder how exactly the British education system works? Scroll through the posts and find someone from England to ask. Don't know which roads you'd take to get from Phoenix to Denver? Talk to the person who's lived in both states! Wonder what's the favorite snack of Syndey, Australia? Ask the native down under!

The mod is still working on getting all the tags rounded up, but if you're interested, go over there an make an introductory post and list the places you've been and are willing to talk about. What restuarants would your characters go to in Chicago? Need a tourist's perspective on London for your protagonist's visit? Ever wonder how exactly how long it takes to go from Des Moines to Omaha and what you'd see on the way? (The answer is about five or six hours, and a lot of corn, soybeans, and cows.)

Use it to add versilmitude to your stories and your character's reactions. Provide color for original characters, or breathe life into your backgrounds. Make friends and influence people!
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (CanonErrorApplyFanfic)
It's that time. Yes, indeed, that time when the fall shows are starting, new movies are coming out, and you're just saying to yourself, "Hey, you know what would be really awesome? If Character A would show up on Character B's show and shennanigans ensued."

Well, you don't have talk to yourself anymore! (Unless, of course, you want to, in which case, more power to ya.) [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange is having sign-ups for another round of crossover goodness!

Ever wonder what it would be like to have the NCIS gang investage a crime on the USS Enterprise? Or if Dr. Temperance Brennan and agent Seeley Booth were helping Aaron Hotchner's team of BAU profilers on a case? Or if Peter Petrelli and Dean Winchester met for a one-night stand and bonding over their father's expectations for their lives? Or if the crew of Serenity were on the run from Dr. Horrible?

Wonder no more! Gather your fandoms, throw them in the blender, and hit puree, because it's time for the Crossover Exchange! Go sign up and spread the crossover love!

P.S. Yes, the sign-up sheet is somewhat complicated. It's for a good reason, honest. You'll find more possibilities for your crossovers the longer you look at it, so never fear! :) I did this last year, and had an incredible amount of fun. This year I came up with even more possible crossovers, so this is an exchange that just gets better each round.
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (O RLY?)
It's that time again! Quick, vote in the latest [livejournal.com profile] jossverse_las round before Sunday, Sept 5th, 5pm EST! This round's stories are alternate endings to season finales. So go read alternate endings to seasons of Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, and Dollhouse and vote for your most and least favorite entries!
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (MyFandomNeedsTherapy)
So, [livejournal.com profile] jossverse_las is having their first round of votes for their Last Author Standing. If you're feeling Jossy, go read some fic (nothing over 1,000 words, so they're all short and sweet) and cast some votes for your best and worst reading experiences!

Crack! Van!

Ok, y'all, I'm driving the [livejournal.com profile] crack_van for Heroes this month, so clear the roads and look both ways before crossing the street!

In other news, I think I'm going to have to pull a couple of all nighters to finish my [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang by the evening of April 6th, so please send some encouragement my way! I'm having sleep-disturbing panic attacks about it!
jaune_chat: My cat Timothy, a cream-and-tan mackrel tabby (Help Haiti)
Ok, you all heard about the earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday, yes? Things are bad, very bad. Many are dead, many more are trapped. There's little water, food, or other supplies. Hospitals were destroyed, thousands of buildings collapsed, thousands of people have lost parents or children.

[livejournal.com profile] help_haiti is running a fandom auction so you can donate to a number of worthy charities, help out your fellow man in this disaster, and get a little fan love back in the bargain.

Didn’t get a chance to buy me at the last Sweet Charity? Missed out at [livejournal.com profile] hope_in_sight? Ever wanted to tell me what to do? Now you can purchase my services and send money to a good cause in the bargain! I’m offering two sorts of things:

Fanfiction - Minimum 1,000 words, in any of my fandoms or a crossover, to a prompt of your devising. Or, you know, whatever else we want to work out. (Though, if you give me a prompt that involves The Haitian, I’ll double the minimum wordage!)
and
Friendship Bracelets/Bookmarks - Two bracelets/bookmarks each to the top two bidders. A classic summer camp craft I happen to be very good at, I will make them in the colors and stitch of your choice.

The bidding is going on right now and ends at midnight on Wednesday, January 20th. Items will be delivered/completed by Feb. 14th.

[livejournal.com profile] megmatthews20 is an awesome person and a great writer. However, she's currently dealing with a heavy issue and is in need of some help. Let her explain it in her own words.

[livejournal.com profile] megmatthews20 in [livejournal.com profile] hope_in_sight: I was born with Marfan Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder. The connective tissue in my body is weaker than the average person's, and therefore I was never allowed to play in sports or run because my aortic valve was dangerously prone to dissection. I will also never be able to deep sea dive or go sky diving or mountain climbing because people with Marfans are also prone to spontaneous pneumothorax (lung collapsing) and the risk is too great. I've learned to live with the health set-backs...

But I've always been particularly upset by the affect Marfans has had upon my eyes. The tissue in my eyes cannot hold the lenses in place like normal healthy eyes can, so my lenses float, moving every year, and drastically changing my vision. With my glasses on, the best I have ever been able to see is 20/40. I sit in the front of the class and am unable to read anything written on the blackboard or the overhead. I can't see more than a handful of stars in the sky even on the darkest night. And I can't tell that someone is waving at me from across the room...

I know that this has held me back in a lot of ways all of my life. I even had to take an extra year in grade school because of it. I want to change all that with a surgery that will give me the ability to see so much more with a clarity and precision that I've only ever dreamed about.

That is where the funds come in. I have already paid off my left eye surgery (unless something unexpected should occur during the procedure and I have to pay more money).

I need funds to pay off my right eye surgery, which will be at least $1525 dollars since it includes an extra charge for correcting my right eye's astigmatism.

I have no money this year. I spent the last three years working as a caregiver for my mom. I had to drop out of school this year to be around her full time when her cancer came roaring back with a vengeance. She passed away in October and my sister and I were left with no money and no life insurance. I just spent my last funds getting back into school and my bank account is down to about a hundred dollars.


How can you help?

In three ways:
1) SELL YOURSELVES, YOU WHORES! Anything and everything goes, fanart, fanfic, podfics, home baked brownies, strippergrams, icons, LJ layouts, yourself as a slave for a week, second hand books & DVDs. Can you crochet? Make earrings? Read palms? Fanvid? Every little bit helps, so offer yourself up to the masses and let them have their way with you. :)

2) PIMP!!! Whores are only as successful as their pimps, and we really need to spread the word far and wide. Are you active in fandoms beyond Heroes? Encourage your flist to join in the fun and goodwill. Post to comms (with mod permission of course). Drag people in off the street and get them LJ accounts to take part!

3) SHOW! ME! THE! MONEY! The bidding will run from Dec 1 - Dec 11th. Buy, buy, buy as much as you can. Bidding wars are totes encouraged. Skip your latte for the week and throw that money at the auction instead. It's a super good cause for a super good person who deserves some happiness to round out a dismal 2009.

BUY ME!

I am selling myself three times over. I'm easy but I'm not cheap! ;-)

1. Heroes fanfiction of at least 1500 words. DETAILS
2. Any fandom fanfiction, or crossover, or sequel of at least 1500 words. DETAILS
3. Platter of homemade cookies and candies for the holidays! Or, you know, just for eating. Because they're cookies, and they're good for that whole eating thing. (You know you want some.) DETAILS

Yes indeed. You always knew it would happen. You've been dreading this day for two years.

I've created a community. May God help us all.

[livejournal.com profile] heroesghostsfic

Inspiration. Sounding boards. Fic. tiny ghosts.

Go there. You know you want to.

Ok, I've got to pimp the most adorable community I've ever seen. It's called [livejournal.com profile] bake_sweet_love, and it's purpose is to combine baking and fanships. What's not to love? Lemme let them explain their mission statement in their own words:

"This comm is dedicated to promoting friendliness and peace between shippers of all pairings, using the sweetest method available: cooking. Post your favorite recipes for any kind of meal and dedicate them to your favorite ships - het or slash or unquantifiable. Everyone can gather to appreciate good food and squee, without arguing or bashing or competition. Commentfic about cookie dough fights is strongly encouraged."

For example, I posted that my favorite gingersnap recipie was like rare pairs (like, say, Luke/Elle or Mohinder/Adam). Someone else posted that store-bought orange/chocolate chip muffins were like canon ships. Or maybe you think that your momma's devil's food cake recipe is like Mylar, or your dad's meatloaf is like Matt/Mo! It combines meta and cooking, and is possibly the best idea for a comm I've ever seen. This comm needs some love, so go spread the sugar-crusted, oven-baked wealth at [livejournal.com profile] bake_sweet_love!

Okiday, Sweet Charity is here once again, something I've heard about but only recently decided to participate in. The deal is, a bunch of people get together and donate their talents to a cause. They put up ads selling themselves, and people bid on them, auction-style. Then all the money goes to charity, (in this case RAINN, a most worthy cause), and the winner bidder gets their prize! The majority of people are selling fiction, though some sell graphics, art, jewelry, clothing, LJ layouts, videos, or other things.

I am participating this year as a seller, or Ho, in the Sweet Charity convention. I am donating a 3,000 - 5,000 word piece of fiction in the Heroes, Supernatural, or Sky High fandom. Anyone who bids on me and wins gets to dictate the prompt I use and generally command me to produce something for them within the limits of our mutual creativity and desires.

[EDIT] Oh, and I've decided to also sell a batch of the World's Greatest Gingersnaps, so if you want homemade cookies, there's another reason to buy me!

People will be signing up to sell themselves until March 27th, and then the bidding goes from the 28th to the 31st. If you want to see what's for sale, go to the Sweet Charity site, then the Auction menu, and click "For Sale." I am, obviously, under the name of Jaune Chat, and there are many other LJ authors of great repute participating.

Come on down and take a look around! This is a worthy charitable cause, and you could get something really cool out it! (And come on, you get to tell me to go write what you want, so what's not fun about that?)
