This is the author auction I mentioned a few days ago.

This is why - from
Like millions of Americans Stacie ([ profile] truelovepooh ) was unable to afford expensive health insurance premiums and kept her fingers crossed that she wouldn’t require medical treatment. A 34 year old wife and mother of three had no reason to think her health would be an issue - she was young and had no previous health concerns.
Her life changed on March 26th 2007 when she was diagnosed with both stage 2 ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
Pooh was forced to give up her job and has faced numerous visits to see doctors and specialists at the Trover Medical Foundation where she is being treated. Unfortunately, because she did not have insurance the medical bills are mounting and whilst the hospital are being very understanding and providing limited financial assistance the expenses are huge.
Many of you who read this blog will know “Pooh” - she will have touched your lives with her kindness, warmth and generosity - someone you can count on and who always puts others before herself. Also, many of you who read this blog may not know Stacie. You may have been directed here by friends or by following a link from one of the sites that are supporting our fundraising drive. Please take a moment to read this blog and find out what you can do to help a wonderful person in her battle with cancer.

Stacie is going to need constant treatment over the coming months and she needs our help to fight this disease. We are starting a fundraising drive to help support Stacie and her family.

is what we're doing - from

A Fanfic-On-Demand fundraiser is underway for friends of Stacie. Authors in any fandom are invited to write a short fic on demand. The writing challenges will be delivered to each participating author by the highest bidder in their personal auction, which will run September 8-14, 2008 here at

The highest bidder gets to deliver the fic challenge to the author they’ve “won,” along with the story’s pairing, the rating, and other pertinent details (within reason and within the author’s stated fandom and limitations - i.e., some authors prefer not to write smut or a certain pairing). The author will be given up to 30 days to finish the fic, beginning with the day that payment is received.

What I'm doing

I've got 3 auctions going on - a 2,500+ word Harry Potter femslash, a 2,500+ word Grey's Anatomy femslash and a sneak preview of chapter nine of the This Is A Problem series which will be 5,000+ words. You get to set me to work. You say Hooch/Giant Squid, I'll be writing it. [As long as the Qiant Squid is female - cause, y'know, femmeslash only ;) ] You want raunchy mop cupboard sex, you got it. You want a heartbreaking unrequited Katie Bell/Professor Sinistra love story, it's all yours. Just put up the cash ;)

I'm trying to find the words to explain why I'm taking part, but I feel it's quite obvious.

[ profile] truelovepooh is a fantastic, caring, kind hearted person battling not only cancer, but an obscene medical financial system. She needs more treatment but the hospital won't allow anymore until "unless a substantial payment is made".

We all love our fandom community, especially here on LJ. Friendships can be forged over oceans and 'ships and in the strangest of ways. As fandom, we can band together to participate in something we can not only enjoy, but show amazing compassion and support for one of our own.

lynsangelic1: (By me)

Wow.  I come back from Glasgow from an awesome gig by Reuben (plus an excellent support band, Sucioperro who were just electric.  Never enjoyed support so much) to find this:

Addison, my Addison who I've been sadly and increasingly obsessed over for the past few months is apparently getting a spin off.  I cannot decide if this is a good thing or not. I still can't believe it.  I wanted more, and now I've got it.  But if it bombs then no more Addison?

Oh, I'll be crying myself to sleep tonight in all the confusion.

Reuben, anyway, brilliant.  Played loads off 1st album, Stuck in my Throat, Lets Stop Hanging Out. Fall of Bastille, Moving to Blackwater, Horrorshow, Tonight my wife, Song for Saturday, Our Song.  That's not to mention 3 new tracks and 5 or 6 from 2nd album and a Nirvana cover.  Lovely.  Ears and throat sore, as to be expected.

I'm v up for passing out but I've still work to do on el playio.  Been thinking about it on the long bus journeys back n forth.  Think I've finally broken the final story aspect in.  Should run more or less smoothly now.  

I hear music but nothing's on.  Going crazy, going deaf...

Britney has shaved her hair off.

No one told me.

Selling her hair on ebay.  I actually don't want it.  I have enough dead hair on my carpet to make a dog.  A really furry dog.

I just watched the new Family Guy on last night in the US.  Terribly offensive but incredibly hilarious Britney parody

She is actually going mental. Hope someone does something before we the headlines are screaming suicide.  I'm still a Britney loyalist at my age.  She made good pop songs, I didn't condemn her for getting wasted re: breakup of her marriage.  That's what people our age do for Christs sake

In other news, new L word and I still love my robot assassin/gay soccer mom.  This series is so more coherent than last years shambles.

Now writing play stuff.. trying to get it done..

No really done much except write and tidy and stock up on painkillers. Rewatching some Veronica Mars while I do all. I'm a multitasking machine.

Can't figure out how to edit the links down the right hand side >>. V annoying as they're from about four years ago. Can't do it in profile or account settings hmm..

One is stumped.

On the upside, seen new promos for Grey's for thursday. Very very excited. I would wish for Kate Walsh to have a wee bit more screen time than Ellen Pompeo lying there all blue and dead. But, alas, my wishes rarely ever come true.
