As you may be aware the oil spill & potential disastrous effects to wildlife & environment off the coast of Tauranga is frightening. A small number of little blue penguins have already been caught in the oil spilled to date with growing fears that more will be effected. Skeinz has been asked to help with the penguin relief by knitting small Penguin PJ’s to help protect the birds & prevent them from preening their feather & ingesting the toxic oil. . . .

Here is the original post on it, where you can find information on jumper specifications and mailing address.

The penguins need us. Lets not let them down, eh? :)
Originally posted by [info]gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

Title: Seth Lambert and the House of Sparklypoo (Year 1)
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Seth Potter (OMC); secondary characters: Adam Lambert, Harry Potter, slew of other canon and original characters.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings (Highlight to View): Occasional cuss, blatant abuse of the Gary-Stu.
Word Count: 9,816
Beta Readers: [info]furorscribiendi and [info]stasia
Note: This is a HP/Bandom (Adam Lambert) crossover written for the [info]Hogwarts_Houses fest! So much love and adoration to my betas, because without their help this fic would not exist right now. Really. ♥ They are both so incredibly amazing.
It's the universal tale of boy meets boy, or rather, what happens when the tale ends. In this case, Harry Potter meets Adam Lambert. They fall in love, settle down, have kids... And as kids eventually do, theirs grow up and go to school. In Seth (Lile Éibear) Potter-Lambert’s case, normal is a relative term and even Hogwarts isn't quite what he expects it to be.

Title: Clever
Pairing/Characters: Adam/Sauli
Rating (Word Count): 100
Warning(s): none.
Author's notes: Haha, this was actually co-written entirely. [info]furorscribiendi half and then I ended up adding in another half to hit 100. This is what happens when you're chatting and one of you goes, "oh look, a prompt! :D" ♥

However clever Sauli is, Adam knows what he is up to. It's a lazy, sunny Sunday morning, one of the few neither of them have to work. It’s full of crossword puzzles, sidelong glances and roaming feet. Glances that burn with promise. Every time Sauli gets up - to get another cup of coffee, to get the sugar for his coffee, to put together another bowl of fruit - he always ends up sitting a little closer when he returns. Adam doesn't mind though, he's always been able to handle playing with fire. And Sauli's getting good at it too.

This comes from an article by [info]rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

A (much) happier post! Everyone go read this and tell the author how fabulous it is, please! ♥

The Plaguey Cheese by [info]iulia-linnea (PG; Harry Potter, Kreacher, Luna Lovegood; 1304 words) There were advantages to sharing Grimmauld Place with Luna, but receiving her "gifts" wasn't one of them.

This is all I love in the Harry-Luna dynamic, with appropriately "loony" Luna and out-of-the-loop Harry. I don't even have the words for this, I just love it. It's sweet, funny, and captures my sense of Harry and Luna perfectly. >:) Go read it!

Title: What You Want, What You Need
Author: [personal profile] eaivalefay
Pairing: Harry/various (no lovers specified. Guess! :)
Rating: PG-13
Warning (highlight to view): implied violence, implied knifeplay, occasional cuss.
Word Count: 1,400~
Summary: You will always love them all. They are all pieces of you now.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter or any of the unnamed but possibly suggested characters in this ficlet/series of strung together drabbles. No infringement is intended. It’s just for fun.
Author's Notes: This is in the second person POV. It is not beta’ed. It’s just something I started writing. It formed into what it is rather accidentally, but I like the idea of exploring my Harry (or one of my Harrys). If you read, enjoy! Please tell me what you think. :) If anyone can tell me what the “titles” are from, I’ll write you anything you like (ficlet prompt in any fandom I know, or a cookie/outtake from one of my previous fics). ;)

So You Think You Can Dance, Top six perform. Sasha's performance with Kent was by far the best of the night. So much intensity. So beautiful. I loved it so much I dashed right over here to share it. ♥

One more... )

Sasha, you simply blow me away with your vast ability and skill. ♥
Oh god, this. THIS THIS THIS.

Adam Lambert premiered a new song at his concert in Quebec last night, a beautiful, heart-wrenching ballad that kills me. It's beautiful, somehow both loving and accepting, and so heartbreaking and painful. Reccing it to anyone and everyone. ♥ This vid of OOL is high quality, and gets the chatting (and screaming. XD) beforehand and a clear audio and visual on the song. Just. YES.


I know not all of my flist knows/is a fan of Adam, but I still rec this. The vocals are beautiful. (And, randomly, if you've heard his music and feel so-so about him, I suggest going to a live performance. He's one of those rare performers who sounds even better live. Somehow. He's magical. Really. Bonus, I will go with you! Adam plus my charming company, win/win, right? *g*)

Thanks and love to TALCvids for the gorgeous and brilliant quality of this!

Everyone should keep an eye on this upcoming mini webseries: Husbands

It's still in production, but promises to be brilliant. But then, GoCheeksGo is one of the actors and he is an absolute riot, as can be witnessed by viewing any of his youtube videos here. :) The show's got a great list of talent and I have no doubt will be both very funny and a great exploration of love and equality. So check it out! ♥

In any case, it seems right up Fandom's alley, whatever particular fandoms we may be playing in. It's provocative (Cheeks is by nature), fun, open-minded, and explores a universe of equality. (Those all being qualities our slashy fandom assumes, yes? It sounds like a slash fic, right? ;)

This is an aside, but Cheeks also owns/runs an interactive blog that provides random links, images, videos, etc to explore a variety of ideas, called WeYuMe. This is less based in humor (though still often quite entertaining), but very "Cheeks." It's hard to explain, so here's a link to the site's purpose: WeYuMe Mainfesto.

Sasha is fierce! And this routine with Twitch blows me away! Sasha and SYTYCD makes me wish I could dance. XD Maybe I should take a class? Just, damn, this routine..! ♥

I will always love this man, for a million reasons. ♥

Adam performing on an ep of SYTYCD. This is one of my favorite performances of "Whataya Want From Me." :D From the attire, to to his eyes, to some notes in the song that just make my breath catch.

I am so proud of New York state right now, for legalizing same-sex marriage finally. It's been a long time coming, it is a big step in the right direction, and hopefully more states will promptly take example and follow suit. Because everyone deserves equal rights. Everyone deserves the ability to marry the one they love. It's as simple as that.

♥♥♥ Cheers, world!
