I wouldn't ordinarily use my DW to promote a commercial business, but I'm making an exception...and I do have a "self-created" fannish connection to Pandora.

For about half-a-dozen years I've been assembling a due South charm bracelet made up entirely of Pandora charms. Until midnight Eastern United States Time tonight Pandora will be donating 50% of all their online sales to Red Cross funds for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. I'm going to buy more charms now for my due South bracelet. If you ever wanted to buy any Pandora brand jewelry, now's the time to do it for yourself where it will also benefit those in immediate need of help after the hurricane.

This link will take you to the Pandora site.

ride_4ever: (Make America Kind Again)
A Reuters news article tonight (byline Carlo Allegri) reported as follows:

"A majority of Americans believe that transgender individuals should be allowed to serve in the military, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday. The July 26-28 poll suggested that the country largely disagrees with President Donald Trump's announcement this week that he will ban transgender personnel from the armed forces. The president's announcement, made in posts on his Twitter account, surprised many senior military officers and appeared to pre-empt an ongoing Pentagon review.

Roger Kaikko, 61, a Trump voter near Cleveland, Ohio, who took the poll, said he disagrees with the president. [Kaikko said] 'Even the president shouldn’t be able to take rights away from some people just because he may not like them. They’re people too [and] they should be able to serve just like anybody else.'

The Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll was conducted online in English across the United States. It gathered responses from 1,249 adults including 533 Democrats and 434 Republicans."

Fanworks is a new con that will begin in 2019. It will be dedicated to various forms of fannish craft, including but not limited to fanfic, fanvids, fanart, and podfic, and is under development by [personal profile] trelkez, [personal profile] sweetestdrain, and [personal profile] absolutedestiny.

There will be individual programming tracks for fanfic, podfic, fanvids, and fanart. Panel programming will focus on craft, and will be a mix of technical panels and presentations (how to achieve a video effect, how to write a certain kind of scene, how to make certain kinds of cosplay outfits, et cetera) and topical discussion panels related to different fan crafts. The fanvid programming track will have both panels and vidshows, including a show of premiering vids. All vidshows will be available to stream online (with viewer-optional subtitles) for attending and supporting members.

Planned features of the con include:

-- the FanWorks Night Market: an evening event with vendor tables, food, and drinks
-- a vid dance party
-- a con zine
-- an on-site art gallery
-- a quiet room with a zine library and podfic available for checkout

If you receive a message like this or one similarly worded, you should delete it. If you click the “Open in Docs” link you will be prompted to login to a real Google Account selection screen (this portion is not spoofed). From there, you will be asked to allow “Google Docs” to access your account – - if you do this, you are transferring full access to and control of your Gmail account to these scammers.

The meme that's the first lines from your last twenty fics (gakked from [personal profile] exbex).

If you were a shape you would be a perfect arrow. When he walked to Wilby Watch he went to find men who were there to find men. "Wrists together, Ray...thank you kindly," says Fraser, world's most polite dom. Let's kiss in Canada. Ray keeps his poetry on the inside and that's another one of those things he hides.
Kowalski really wishes he hadn’t mixed the two IPA’s at the conference: International Police Association and India Pale Ale -- like Fraser’s tongue and electricity -- were not a good mix. “There’s good Goats and bad Goats, but there’s no Goat like the Billy Goat Curse.” City fit and a lot to say about it,
not yet Arctic fit and saying even more. On Ray’s first birthday, the Vecchio family gathered around and sang “Tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri Raimondo, tanti auguri a te”. Traversing the ice fields, Ray thinks of Fraser's smile. According to the Illinois Criminal Code 720 ILCS 5/3-5, 5/3-6, 5/3-7, there is no statute of limitations for first degree murder, attempt to commit first degree murder, second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident involving death or personal injuries, failing to give information and render aid under the Illinois Vehicle Code, concealment of homicidal death, treason, arson, forgery, child pornography, or certain specified sexual conduct crimes in which DNA evidence is entered into a DNA database. When a half-wolf lives in the city, he becomes more doggish and less wolfish, snacks on goldfish and stolen pastries -- scorns the hunt. "S” could be Stanley, “S” could be “Stalker”.
White like a blank slate, this cold heaven where the ice promises pristine preservation. Not dog nor wolf – something of both. Come all ye fellow wolves, and prick forward your ears as a ballad I howl that spans many wolf years. Your Las Vegas life is like dry ice, burns you cold -- cold like the Vegas desert at night -- deadly cold -- deadly cold like you are now. April here in Chicago, where everything around me is bursting with a life I don’t feel. Raven-haired robber has plans for the blonde lawyer – date but not court date. It's the second hour of an evening stake-out marked by relentless rain and high winds.
