with how relieved I am about the healthcare vote. Not just because it was terrible policy - though there is that - but because of the horrific, undemocratic way the GOP was trying to force it through. Ezra Klein summarized it best but I felt like the American political system was disintegrating before my eyes.

It may be on its last gasps, but thank god it's not quite dead yet.

One of KM Weiland's pieces of advice in Outlining Your Novel (though this is actually in chapter "Before You Begin Your Outline") is:

"If you could have a professional reviewer read your idealized concept of your finished book and totally get it—completely understand everything you're trying to say with your characters, plot, dialogue, and themes—what would he write about your story?"

And then you, being specific, thorough, and extravagant, are that reviewer.

OKAY THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN wait how do I do that

So put your armor on the ground tonight
'Cause everyone's got to come down sometime

You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to hold the world in your hands
You've already shown me that you can
Don't have to be Superman

Need a little help please, guys...

Still been a rough few weeks. Still dealing with health and financial issues plus a close friend, of more than thirty years, has just been diagnosed with Stage Four stomach cancer.

His tumor is rare and particularly nasty. Even with chemo it doesn't look good but he's a fighter. Heck, he had his first round of chemo yesterday and today he and his band, the Bowlers, are playing at the Ohio State Fair. As Danya put it, he may have to sit his 'Rocking Ass down for it but he'll be there". Mike is their lead guitarist.

Mike and Danya are two of the nicest people on this planet! Danya is a Vet, Mike is an incredible artist/musician. Each year at WonderFest he designs a Plaque to honor the show based on Lee's designs for the show that year. They are always beautiful and true works of art. As soon as I can I'm going to be taking pictures of any of the previous year's Plaques we still have to post to eBay so I can send anything we can make off them along via Mike's paypal account.

Before he got sick, Mike was feeding and caring for several feral cat colony's in Columbus. Besides their own menagerie of fur balls they've rescued and love at home. You wouldn't believe the cat runs, the cat sun room he's designed for them, they're amazing. Both of them truly live lives of service to others, be they human or tend to purr. A GoFundme has been set up to help them with the massive medical bills they're facing right now. Please, if you can, take a look, definitely share the link if you wouldn't mind:

As for me, still fighting to get over this latest flareup of my lupus. Plus, I'm still trying to sell whatever I can to help us pay bills and make ends meet. I'm getting stuff posted to Ebay to sell now that my vision has settled down a little from my flare. If you guys wouldn't mind sharing what I've posted I'd really appreciate it. Here's the link:

If you see anything you'd like, but would rather pay for it here, let me know and I can tell you what it'd be with postage. My Paypal is bstaton@iglou.com. If you do buy something, if you wouldn't mind, send payment for it via friends and family. That way they don't take out all the fees.

Any help passing this along would be greatly appreciated. I'm going to keep adding stuff to sell as I can get pictures taken. If you guys wouldn't mind sharing what I've posted I'd really appreciate it. Here's the link:

Now is the time to call your Senators. Yes, certain GOP senators are particularly critical, but honestly, call yours no matter who you are or where you live. This is about protecting Medicaid, the general healthcare infrastructure in this country, and also denying Trump a win so that GOP feels more compelled to boot him out. On every level, GOP attempts to repeal ACA must be fought.

And yes, even if you called before - call again.

Do scented soaps and lotions taste good to kittan?

Clearly I am approaching due for either figuring out how to clip Thea's claw tips or how to apply the red plastic thingies.

I am so depressed it won't be picked up.

At first I wasn't that into it; I liked some of the performances and the lush design, but the story wasn't doing much for me. But now it's really hit its stride!

Sigh.

Muse FM (J2, AU) MASTER POST

[personal profile] cleflink
Title: Muse FM
Author name: [personal profile] cleflink
Artist name: [personal profile] dollarformyname
Fandom: CWRPS
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Rating: PG
Word count: 31920
Warnings: Fantasy violence

Summary: Jared's job is boring, boring, boring. As a night security guard, he protects empty buildings by sitting on his ass and watching the security cameras while listening to a lot of talk radio. Not exactly the life he dreamed of for himself but hey, it's a living.

When he gets chosen for a new job babysitting the front desk at Muse FM radio station, Jared's mostly expecting more of the same. He's not expecting Jensen, the mysterious, hoodie-wearing host of Muse FM's overnight show, to catch his interest quite so thoroughly, or to be quite so difficult to figure out. He's not expecting so many unanswered questions about what, exactly, he's supposed to be protecting Jensen from. He's also not expecting to care so much about either of those things.

Oh, and he's definitely not expecting the monsters.

Hugs and thanks to [personal profile] dugindeep for being my sounding board, whip cracker and sprint partner. I missed you in the end process, my dear, *shakes fist at life* but it wouldn't have happened at all without your help, so thank you! Thanks also to Laura for the quick and dirty beta. Any remaining mistakes are mine.

Thanks as always to [personal profile] wendy for keeping this ship afloat year after year! This is my seventh year participating, and it's a (stressful) delight every year. You rock, Wendy!

And finally, thanks to all of you for reading! This one kind of took on a life of its own, so I hope you enjoy.
