caffienekitty: (dr horrible - status not quo)
I've always said I'd stick with Livejournal until it dies, but the limit has now been reached. So, unfortunately, over the next long while I will be transferring my primary journal activities to my Dreamwidth fractured mirror.

You're all welcome to follow me on there, but I won't be friending back (or whatever they call it) for a long while until I can figure out how to reinstate the filters on some filtered posts. Right now everything is far too exposed over there. This will be a very rocky process.

I'm also looking for:
-Clear simple instructions on how to download and backup the stuff I have in Livejournal's Scrapbook, along with its folder structuring.
-An image hosting service that's cheap/free and reliable and offers at least 2gb of space.
-Places on Dreamwidth to find fandom communities there.

I'm sure more things will crop up as this process gets underway.

If I manage to write anything during this period, it will be posted to my AO3 account I do have a semi-active tumblr that I'm currently reblogging a lot of Merlin and random things on, and very rarely posting anything myself.

The backstory is here in a prior post.

Four of the five Supernatural eBooks of stolen fanfic this guy was selling have now gone 404, including the one with my story, so thank you all so much for your help and support! \o/

There are still eBooks up by this guy though: one Supernatural, two Game of Thrones, two Vampire Diaries, and one Breaking Bad. If anyone knows fic for these fandoms or can signal boost into those fan spaces, that would be great. The other Amazon seller found to have copied fanfic that is linked in the Tumblr post has had some taken down now as well, but some of it is still up. Please continue boosting the signal to make sure if these are stolen fanfic too (more than likely) that the original writers can know and fight back.

In the wake of the Nepal Earthquake disaster, the [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid Comm has set up a "Buy It Now"-style page to help promote donations to disaster relief charity agencies. According to the campaign alert there may yet be a full fandom auction for Nepal in future, but meanwhile there's the quick deals page.

For those new to fandom charity drives, the concept is simple: people offer to make fanworks (or send little gifts, or beta or whatever) in exchange for (in the Buy-it-Now style of auction) a set minimum amount to be donated by the first person to claim the offer. Further details of the process are on the page linked above. To help out you can claim and donate, or offer your talents, or signal boost the fundraiser to other fandom spaces, on LJ and elsewhere.

At the Comic Expo held recently in Calgary, a fan (I'm assuming the one who uploaded the video) requested that Wil Wheaton explain on camera, for the fan's recently born child to watch at some point in the future, why it is so awesome to be a nerd.

This is his answer. I think it's kind of cool.

There are a couple things I'd like to suggest you go check out.

Faint Dark - An Original fic by [livejournal.com profile] ciaranbochna - Magic realism, myths and legends, with a shading of horror. Located here: Part One, Part Two, and Part Three

and
Auctions for disaster relief - There are currently two fandom auctions being run to raise donations for hurricane relief that I know of, I'm sure there are more:
-[livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel is running a Hurricane Sandy Fundraiser Auction. This is primarily Supernatural fans, though there are crossovers offered as well.
-Australia-based [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid is running a North American/Carribean Superstorm Crisis Fundraiser which is pan-fandom.
If you can, I encourage you to offer something to be bid on in an auction, or bid on someone's offering if you can afford to, or if you can't do either then signal-boost and let other fans know where to go to get involved in fundraising.

I'm not making an offer for the auctions myself this time because I still owe two auction fics and it wouldn't be fair to offer fic again with those still outstanding as in progress. The last thing I want to do is disappoint someone in a charity auction. :-/

If you are or have ever been a fan of anything, you will probably find this vid posted over on Dreamwidth by scribe and fiercynn pretty darn cool. The vid password is posted underneath the vid, as are download links.
