Last day for Prison Break Voteoff Round One!  
The round-one voteoff for the Prison Break Fanfic Awards ends today. If you haven't cast your votes for this round, please get them in!

In other news, I am pimping myself out for the Sweet Charity auction. This round benefits RAINN (Rape, Abuse Network). Bunches of authors/vidders/graphics people to bid on over there. Take a peek!

From an LJ standpoint, I've got that "5 favorite stories" Meme coming up to do, and the Prison Break Fic Exchange is keeping me very, very busy. I've had some sweet offers from potential backup writers, though, which really eases the stress. :)

Spam "subject lines" from my mailbox~~
Current Winner: chili quilt
Previous Winner: inscrutable mice
Always a loser: it ready

If you can't even get your spam gramatically correct, WHY would anyone ever open it? Though I DO wonder whom the subject of "inscrutable mice" was aimed at. What's the target audience for that?

Happy Wednesday!

Heh at inscrutable mice :D

Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network

Heh, I know that fictional and real incest are worlds away from each other, but it still feels like a certain amount of irony :D

I hope you make a ton of money :D

Speaking of... did you get the package yet?

Yes, I'd noticed that too. Hence, I didn't include the entire name in the mention.

And there's a huge difference to me between consensual incest (where consent can be given, e.g., between siblings) and non-con (forced, or where there's an emotional power dynamic that renders one person unable to say no). People who have been physically and emotionally injured by it, though, definitely know which side of that they fall on. Seems like a great cause all the way around.

I hope you make a ton of money :D
I would like to at least A) Get a bid and B) have it be for a worthy amount (e.g., not $1.47 or the like).

No package yet, but I am looking forward to it! :D:D:D:D

Damn, I even paid them extra money so it would be 7 instead of 10 days. *pouts*

If you still need a backup writer, let me know. I've been feeling pretty decent in the writing department lately, so I can whip something up if needed.

Whahoobies! I really might. I got an email back from a straggler about "just got back from the Army, RL you know, might not get it done in time" and yes, the Army is a non-negotiable RL constraint, BUT... she knew that going into the exchange. Hence all the nagging about "starting early," especially for people who have midterms/projects/other commitments with known deadlines that might interfere.

So.... might be emailing you! *crosses fingers that remaining writers will all miraculously come through* :)

Oh, my, I had to laugh at this because a fic that I was working on a while ago - currently on hold ;) - contains the phrase "like a meat-filled duvet." (Er, it describes DP's body stretched out on top of someone else's...)

like a meat-filled duvet
Somehow, that does not bring the sexy to my mind! A blanket of warm, smooth muscle, now-- that's a different image altogether. :)

*ponders whether mice are either always or never inscrutable*

I was thinking of changing it to "muscle-filled duvet", but I'm not sure. I kind of want there to be a bit o' nast to the thing as a whole... ;)

However, should I decide to give DP a break, may I use "a blanket of warm, smooth muscle"? I'll give you credit. :)

Absolutely. :) He'd probably find that a more flattering description.

Unless you can work in my trademark phrase of "Walking ManSex," although it would sound kind of cracktastic in a story. ;)

Lookit that icon. Self explanatory!

Big manly jocks will find flattering what I tell them to find flattering. (There's a Simpsons ref in there somewhere, just for you.)

Frankly, I enjoy being tough on him. Someone has to, right? ;)

Hm. If you're interested, I'll open the story to you once I've posted it. I'm planning on putting some kind of filter on it. (Normally, I keep my distance from RP fic, but this is for a special occasion.) Maybe I'm worrying about this too much...

In any case, if you feel like reading some WM/DP fic in the near future, let me know.
