OKAY RIGHT BUT IMPORTANT THINGS:

1) For the first time I'm actually going to GO somewhere for my Spring Break! To an exotic, foreign land! (Canada.) WOOOO!!!
2) DID Y'ALL KNOW MATT BOMER DID AN ELVIS THEMED PHOTOSHOOT FOR GQ ITALIA? HE SINGS AND IS GORGEOUS.
3) Ivorysilk makes my angsty heart happy. Lovely post-Checkmate fic that I got to beta, it's wonderful, you should read it.
4) [community profile] fandom_helps.


This is an auction to benefit Planned Parenthood. You can go and offer handmade items, fics, vids, pics, misc (pretty much anything), and on the 14th other folks will bid on them. All of the money goes to Planned Parenthood. It's a great way to get some wonderful personalized gifts for yourself/others, and it's a way to help raise money for a cause you support even if you're someone (like me!) who can't afford to give very much on their own. You can find my thread, where I'm offering a fic with a 2k word minimum, here. 

The auction's on DW, but you can offer/bid with an openid (there's a tutorial on the comm if you don't know how to do that). Posting offers ends on the 13th, bidding starts on the 14th, and ends on the 21st. 

I know there are a shit-ton of talented people on my flist, and on y'alls flists--so think about what you can offer, what you can afford, or even if you can help to signal boost this so that the information gets to more people. ♥

Update on how Being Not Depressed is not the same as Being Depressed:

Some of my study/coping/life habits that have served me well in the past are clashing with Not Being Depressed. So--you know how if you feel cruddy the majority of the time, that whenever you DON'T feel cruddy, you desperately try to get as much done as you possibly can? If you only have thirty minutes in the day where the idea of sending emails to people doesn't make your stomach clench, then you need to jump on those thirty minutes and use them as best you can. Unfortunately, now that I actually have a consistently higher amount of energy, it's hard to get over the instinct to get ALL OF THE THINGS DONE ASAP.

So I have energy (WHICH IS SO COOL), but I don't know how to...how to have energy and not feel like I have to take immediate advantage of it. Because after working for a couple of hours, I should probably let myself take a break without my inner Jewish mother going OMG YOU LAZY SLACKER YOU SHOULD BE WORKING. I think this is exacerbated by the fact that I'm working on a lot of long-term projects that I can't actually Git Done right away.

It's not a big deal, and I'm poking around it to figure it out, it's just something I'm thinking thinky thoughts about.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: Where are the fics where Matt Bomer/Neal climbs Joe Manganiello/Ben like a tree? I got hot and bothered just watching them BE NEAR EACH OTHER. My size differential kink just went bonkers. So. PORN?

Title: wish you were here
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch
Rating: NC-17
Fandom: White Collar
Word Count: 5,300
Pairing: Alex/Neal/Peter, established Alex/Elizabeth/Neal/Peter
Warnings/Content: Spanking, threesomes and foursomes, D/s, double penetration, marathon sex, masturbation.
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] surreal_44  who made a very generous donation to [livejournal.com profile] help_midwest (a really really long time ago, I am so sorry, thank you for your patience, you are wonderful). She asked for Neal/Peter/Alex making a video for Elizabeth. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks: To the lovely ladies who brainstormed porn with me when I got stuck 300 words in: [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67, [livejournal.com profile] daria234, [livejournal.com profile] photoash, and [livejournal.com profile] coffeethyme4me, and to [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan for brainstorming and then betaing on top of that!

Summary: Elizabeth is out of town on business, so Peter, Neal, and Alex decide to send her a video. (Hint: it’s porn! \o/)

“Here’s the deal,” Peter says, putting a hand over Neal’s protesting mouth. “Alex is in town for a few days, and we all miss you, and since we don’t want you to get lonely without us we thought we’d…make you a present.” )

In case y'all had not heard: the weather in the Midwest has been fucking batshit. Tornadoes destroyed the town of Joplin, MO, and killed over a hundred people. They have also swept through many other Midwestern cities (including my current home base of St. Louis, MO). We picked up our third dog when he wandered into a coworker's yard the day after the tornadoes hit the airport. They couldn't keep him, so now we have an adorable corgi (his fun party trick: he can imitate police sirens with startling accuracy).

BUT ANYWAY SO: there is a charity auction! I'm offering a fic! Uh, I forgot to put minimum word count on there, so: I've only written one charity fic that fit under 2k before (and that was one thousand cranes, which I think was an okay exception). Most end up over 5k. You can check out my writing for: chatities tag to see the kind of work I do for this sort of set-up. 

Here's all of the deets from my thread:

User Name: [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch 
Email: whoisyourb [at] gmail [dot] com
LJ Examples of your work: All of my fics, and fics written just for charities.
Fandoms you'll write: White Collar, Glee, Merlin, Star Trek (Reboot), Sky High, Friday Night Lights, Leverage, Doctor Who.
Pairings you'll write: List and further explanation at my Five Acts post here. I'm willing to stretch myself when it comes to charity fics, though, so if you want something that's not on the list, just shoot me an email or PM! :-)
Starting Bid: $5.

I think this auction could use someone to make some graphics (a banner and an icon, maybe)--if anyone here has the know-how and some spare time, I think they might appreciate it. I know I'd use them! 

If anyone else wants to volunteer some talents or bid on some awesome stuff: here's the fic post, crafts/postcards, art. Here's the intro post with info about places to donate, and here's the FAQ. If anyone else is offering, please feel free to link and promote your threads in the comments here!

Title: dreams that don't come true (and some stars to wish upon)
Fandom: White Collar
Rating: R
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch
Pairings: Neal/Peter
Acknowledgments: If there are any commas in the appropriate places, it is only because [livejournal.com profile] coffeethyme4me beat them into submission with her beta stick. [livejournal.com profile] afiawri provided invaluable brainstorming insight. And, as always, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan. SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE DID.

Notes: This is an incredibly belated fic (SO SORRY) for [livejournal.com profile] zalman23, who made a very generous donation for the Queensland Flood Relief auction. The prompt was: Neal had a sex dream about Peter, which made him become sexually conscious of Peter. Bonus point if there's something slightly off in the dream, something you wouldn't notice being wrong in a dream, but when you think about it, it's unlikely to be real.

Summary: When Peter fucks him, his tension bleeds away. All that he can hear is Peter’s quiet voice, all that he can feel is Peter’s skin against his, all he wants is for Peter’s cock to stay in his body, all that matters are Peter’s promises soothing him back to sleep.

His shoulders hurt. )

Title: Metamorphosis
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hoosierbitch 
Rating: NC-17
Fandom: White Collar
Pairing: Elizabeth/Neal/Peter
Word Count: 9,000
Notes: I started writing this for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 back in January when she won a bid for the Queensland Flood Auction. It started out as smut, but grew into something that was also about relationships and gender roles. I hope you like your fic!
Thanks: [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 did an amazing, thorough, insightful beta read for me. Any remaining mistakes are all my own!

Summary: Neal and Elizabeth switch bodies. Then things get complicated.

There was a burst of light. )
hoosierbitch: (S Cranes)
Title: one thousand cranes
Rating: PG-13
Warning: Character death.
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] usakeh, who made a very generous donation at a charity auction a very long time ago (thank you for your patience!). This is a death!fic written by someone who avoids reading them. I did my best to bring as much reality and poetry to the subject as I could, and I hope that it comes across as honestly as intended.
Special thanks to: The always lovely [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67, for the beta, and [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan, who loaned me the laptop that I used to write this. 

Summary: Neal is dying.

He leaves the opened envelope on the table for weeks. )

[livejournal.com profile] waltzmatildah is running a fundraiser on her LJ to raise money for relief efforts in Australia. The flooding there has been devastating and far-reaching, and fandom has a great history of being able to come together as a community when things like this happen to raise money for good charities.

The way this fundraiser works is that writers offer fics for the folks who offer to donate the most money to different charities (Queensland Government Flood Relief Appeal and the RSPCA Flood Appeal have been promoted all over the place as good places to donate).

I'm offering one fic for each of the two highest bidders. Here's the thread with all of my details. (Not, to, like, twist arms or anything, but keep in mind that I'm going to have a lot less time to write this semester, and that these two stories will definitely get written. So if there's anything you're dying to read, this is probably the best way to ensure that it'll get written before the summer!)

Here's a complete list of all the authors/fandoms on offer! If you have money, consider making a bid! If you're a writer, consider making an offer! If you have neither money nor the inclination to write, consider signal-boosting! If you don't want to do any of those things...you should eat a mango. They're delicious.

Also, I can't even tell you how much I hate html right now. That picture did not want to go to there.

GUESS WHAT, GORGEOUS PEOPLE? [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan is now open for bids! My thread is here - I'm offering one fic, minimum of 1,000 words. I'm not going to be able to go by the suggested deadline there, which is in October, but I'll have it done by February - I've still got one fic to finish from [livejournal.com profile] gulf_aid_now! (I AM WORKING ON IT, I PROMISE!) This time around, I am NOT going to offer a fic to the runner-up (I was perfectly happy to do that the last times, but have much less free time now) so PLEASE keep an eye on the deadline if this is something you really want!

There are already a TON of wonderful offers - here's a delicious account with all the offers sorted out, and the main post for fics is here. There are a lot of great finds in that category and many others, so please check it out! You can offer goods of your own up until the 27th and bidding will go until the 28th - it's an important cause, so help out if you can! :D 

You can comment here or PM me if you have any questions about what I'm offering! 

ORIENTATE THIS, BIZNATCH. )
