Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday that begins on October 31st, but it’s the opposite of Halloween. It brings families together to honor the dead, while Halloween is about scaring spirits away. Source

[The 2014 "7 Wonders" fund drive aims to raise 70k by October 27.  Can we do it - yes!]

Do you like fanfic?

Do you read fanfic?

Do you write fanfic?

Does your life, perhaps, center around fanfic? fanart? fanvids? fanmixes? podfics?  :D

(…..whaaaat?  why you lookin’ at me that way??)

AO3 is the fanfic archive to beat all other fic archives - and we all know it.  We all use it.  Some of us are there every day.  Some of us, maybe, possibly, never leave the site (how many tabs do I have open right now?  ….not sayin.)  

Those of us who were fans before we had an archive all our own remember getting TOS’d by LJ and other platforms (none of which had the right features for an archive anyway) on a regular basis, depending on who owned it or advertised on it at any given moment.  Bah!

AO3 is a fabulous resource - we ought to remember that more often :D

Well, AO3 isn’t being generated by magic code monkeys :D  It’s fans and writers and artists just like all of us writing and maintaining the code & the infrastructure, and they need dollars to keep the thing afloat.  

Right now is a big Organization for Transformative Worksmembership drive. OTW is the parent of AO3, plus a bunch of other fannish support initiatives, including legal advocacy for writers or artists being harassed for their legal fanworks.

Click your way on over there and give them five or ten bucks.  I mean, it’s a couple of coffees, or a bubble tea or other imbibable equivalent of your choice :D  GIVE THEM JUST A FEW DOLLARS.  EVERY FEW DOLLARS COUNTS.

DONATE - YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

There are almost 1500 of you following this tumblr - if each of you gave AO3 ten bucks it would give AO3 $15,000.  That’s a not-insignificant amount of dollars :D

GIVE AO3 A LATTE OR TWO. THEY GET THIRSTY WRITING ALL THAT CODE.

It’s amazing to me that they manage to keep AO3 up and running on donations.  I mean, we could be being spammed with ads all the time or paying a monthly subscription fee - and it would be *worth* a subscription fee (you can, in fact, set up a monthly donation via Paypal if you are so inspired!).

You use AO3 - go show them your support, nay love and adoration, in a concrete way.  You know you want to :D

I grew up in a poly household. My mother was married to two men who loved her dearly and they were the best of friends. I use past tense due to the fact that one of my fathers passed away a few years back.

I grew up in one of the most stable, loving households I…

BRINGING BACK A CLASSIC!

Hi guys! I’m bringing back a much sought after item:

My FULL SKETCHBOOK in Digital Download format for $2 USD!

It’ll be a while until I can take commissions again, so in the meantime, please consider supporting me as an artist by purchasing a copy of my REAL MEDIA SKETCHBOOK!

It’s unedited, uncut and uncensored.

Over 100 pages of sketches, drawings, paintings, doodles, and musings. This is a year’s worth of artistic development all bound up into one neat little PDF for your perusal, and all images are print quality, so you can print your own physical copy of my sketchbook if you’d like.

Thank you very much for all of your support!

IF YOU CAN’T PURCHASE A COPY OR DON’T HAVE THE MEANS TO, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE REBLOGS AS WELL! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
