Now, I don't know how the people reading this feel about direct cash transfers to those in need, but in the wake of Harvey, Give Directly will be running a small operation in Texas.

Blog Post at Give Directly

I realise that we're more comfortable generally with donating to relief organisations, but, frankly, sometimes it's more direct to hand over the money and let people work out what their priorities are instead of making them jump to the requirements of relief organisations.

(For those of you who object to religious charity - a.k.a. giving that asks for someone to fit religious requirements or to listen to a talk in exchange for food; direct giving also bypasses such hoops.

For those of you who object to 'enabling the poor to by beer and prostitutes', this post is not for you, carry on.)

Is it still a handout? Yes. But it's one that's intended to give people the chance to work out what they need, rather than presuming comfortable, middle-upper class know what they and their families need, or elongating the chain of 'is this something that we think they really need?' Does it rely on good supply chains that then provide the things which people need? Yes. But America has those supply chains and enough people to make it reasonably worthwhile to maintain them.

Could be interesting. Also in the execution of it, how many non-white families get the direct cash transfer as compared to white ones.

Well, that's a bummer,,,

Client I'm working at had a bad financial year - no rain out in the fields, budgets slashed. Come November, there won't be space in the budget at this client for me. Several people are being put on part time, but they're employees of the contracting company so they get priority.

In other news, my chooks (Aussie slang for "chickens" for all you sad cases living beyond our borders) are arriving in the next week! (After hearing nothing from the company for far, far too long.) Hopefully just in time to keep the fruit flies down...
kindness_says: (yuletide - gotta swap em all)
[personal profile] kindness_says posting in [community profile] yuletide
Hello, beloved swappers! Don’t worry, swaps IS happening, as always! Sign-ups post will go up, ummmm, soon. I meant to kick us off around the beginning of the month, but #life #got overwhelmed by the idea of needing to rewrite this FAQ, tbh. Sorry!

This year! We have moved to Dreamwidth, because Yuletide has moved to Dreamwidth, and because it seems like most of our constituency has done the same. We will probably continue to crosspost to the Yuletide LJ community in some capacity, linking back to DW posts and providing a forum for LJ-only swappers to continue to ask questions and make contact when their yahoo emails inevitably fail. ;)

Tags will remain the same: “omnomnom” for candyswap, “who likes books” for bookswap, and “nice cuppa” for drinkswap (er, just as soon as I'm able to request their creation on DW). As on LJ, we strongly encourage swappers to track tags for the swaps they are interested in.

(Go to your DW Account Settings >> Notifications afterward, to make sure all the tags you wanted definitely took!)

And now…onward!

FAQ! )

But seriously, when are sign-ups going to be open for Yuleswaps 2017?

Soon, I swear. Tonight, I hope, but realistically, might be more like tomorrow or Tuesday. I will get it together. I promise. Swaps will happen.

Happy swapping, swappers!!!!

[personal profile] dhampyresa
I'd been feeling like I wasn't goth enough for a while, but this feeling is gone since this morning.

I had a really weird dream last night in which I was, for some obscure reason, taking part in a baking show presided over/judged by the Raven Queen, the Goddess of Death in Critical Role (and DnD -- but this was definitely a Critical Role thing). Then I blew my fuse because we were supposed to cook with unsalted butter and WHAT KIND OF HERETIC etc. I'm pretty sure I was overdoing it to gum up the works for some reason? But in any case, shouting at the Raven Queen made me level up, so obviously I took that level in Goth, which she thought was hilarious, appropriate and well-deserved.

Clearly I am goth enough. The dream argument I had with a death goddess over baking ingredient says so.


Also, I finally wrote prompts for my yuletide letter. Sorry for the delay to anyone waiting on it.

I'll do the linking in appropriate places tomorrow.

Last day of holidays (vacation). I feel like I've either done nothing or packed a lot into the last week. Sometimes I feel like I've done both nothing at all and packed a lot into the last week.

Crossovering is live, my stories are in there, neither are particularly good, nor particularly popular.

For the rest of the year, the exchange plan is:
Trick or Treat
Marvel Is Marvel
Holly Poly
Yuletide

If someone else runs a Captain Hill exchange, I'll participate, but I doubt it. Pacific Rim might get a resurgence, but either way I don't plan to join in. Other than that, I still have sedoretu to finish, as well as all the others.

I can probably get three Trope Bingo entries done in the next two weeks before the end of October. Probably. But it's gonna be a bit difficult to hold off posting stuff until the 12 Days of Ficmas...

Sooooo remember when I was talking about that fic that was OOC for Jainan at the end of the story? Well.............. I finished it and posted it anyway XD my friend thinks it's good and I trust her judgment, so here you go: The Ghosts Will Try to Find You Enjoy!

two fests, two fics!

On Friday, two of the exchanges I'm participating in - Crossovering and Femslashex - went live! I got two lovely stories, one for each, though I was only able to read one before heading out of town sans laptop for a nonprofit retreat. But now I'm home with a real keyboard and can point to my delightful gifts.

Frank & the Phoenix (6874 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: David Blaize - E. F. Benson, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Frank Maddox/Newt Scamander
Characters: Frank Maddox, Newt Scamander
Additional Tags: Greek Mythology - Freeform, Crossover Pairings
Summary: Frank stumbles across a dangerous--and impossible--beast during one of his trips to Greece.

This story is everything I never knew I wanted from this crossover! The author does an amazing job of fitting the two canons together in a logical way, and pulling in all sorts of delicious details from both to build the story. It's from Frank's POV, which I loved because I'm a real sucker for the wizarding world seen through a muggle's eyes.

Illustrious the Return (1562 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Alpennia Series - Heather Rose Jones
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Barbara Lumbiert/Margerit Sovitre
Summary: Their second arrival to Saveze was very different from their first. Instead of arriving riding double on a horse, fleeing with no more than they could carry; now they arrived in a carriage emblazoned with the Saveze crest with servants and carts loaded with trunks full of books and clothes.

The very first Alpennia story on AO3, and it was written for me, hooray! It really feels in tune with their canonical relationship, with great characterization. It's also very grounded in the wonderful details of canon, the mysteries that connect the land and its people.

I also wrote one fic for each of these fests, which I'm sure you can identify as my work FROM SPAAAACE. But I need to go read more in both of them!

We have one work in the collection that didn't reveal with the rest. We just tried unrevealing the collection and re-revealing it, so AO3 might send you a second email. Just ignore it!

We're working on solving this issue!

Archive is now OPEN!

[personal profile] weasleytook posting in [community profile] crossovering
Stories and artworks are now visible here. You should receive an email from AO3 with a link to your gift soon, but you can also find it here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/YOUR-USER-NAME-HERE/gifts

Author/artist reveals will happen in exactly ONE WEEK, on October 20 at 12 p.m
. PDT. (What time is that where I live?) We will leave the archive open for submissions so if there are additional treats (of any size), that you would like to post, you may do so during this period. 

Please note that works posted for exchanges tend to get buried when archives go live, as a result of earlier posting dates. We advise that you change your publication date so your work doesn't get lost in the fray. To do so, simply click Edit on your post and scroll down to the Associations heading. Check the box next to 'Set a different publication date' and change it to today's date.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns or the gift you have received goes against the challenge rules, please email us at crossoveringmods@gmail.com and we will handle it as soon as we can.

Thank you everyone for participating and thank you all for your patience!
 We've had more stumbles than we're used to this year, as the whole mod team has had some life events happen that take priority, so we truly appreciate everyone sticking by us!

snickfic: Spaceman Spiff about to crash his spaceship (mood sf)
[personal profile] snickfic
I've been watching the Alien movies, because Walmart had the first four bundled together for $10. The second one was indeed less boring than the first one. The third one I skipped, because if there's anything I don't need, it's Ripley in an attempted-rape scenario. Also it just sounded dumb, and way to completely undermine the second movie!!! (I read up on it on wikipedia.)

So I'm watching the fourth one now, and wow, it is... very different. The whole look has changed. Ripley has changed dramatically, for obvious plot-related reasons. And boy howdy is the third one gross on the sexism/sexual harassment/sexual objectification scale. "Who do I have to fuck to get out of here"???? Look, Ripley's a different person in this one, but she did not need to be different in that way. Female characters can be harder and darker and more ambiguous WITHOUT EDGY PATRIARCHAL BARGAIN SHIT. And that one pan up the secondary female character's ass? For no reason at all? Ew ew ew. Thanks for nothing, Joss Whedon.

If it weren't for all that crap, though, I think the fourth one might actually be my favorite? Don't get me wrong, it's VERY STUPID, but it's more my kind of movie. Winona Ryder is freaking adorable, and I'm very into Ripley's new ambiguous vibe (and the reasons behind it).

It's officially past midnight in my time zone, so that means all assigned works should be posted and complete! We will be checking works starting now and in the morning and if we find any that are not up to the challenge guidelines, we will be sending out emergency pinch hits. (Boy, we hope not though.)

As long as everything looks a-okay, works will be officially revealed on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT (
Want to know when that is where you are? Or count down to it here!) If you still have treats to post, you may post them until that time.

There is only ONE HOUR LEFT before all late pinch hits must be complete and posted at AO3. The final deadline is 11:59 p.m. PDT on October 12. (Find out when that is where you live or count down to it here.) 

At that time, we will run a check (to the best of our ability) that all works abide by the challenge rules. 


Our current plan is to reveal works on October 13 at 12 p.m. PDT, but in order to that everyone who finished an assignment must have a gift. (If that doesn't come to pass, we will keep you aware as we adjust the reveal time accordingly. (
