One of my co-mods, the King of Hell himself, is hosting a Holiday Wish List Exchange over at spn_bigpretzel.
(Remind me again dizzojay, mamapranayama andlolaann1 why we ever agreed to letting him help run the comm in the first place?)
Anyway, head on over there to make a wish or grant a wish. You know you want to!
Hey, gang. You know how fed up you get with fandom wank sometimes? I know I do. But here's a small thing we can do that might cause a bigger ripple.
Spearheaded by honeylocusttree, this Thunderclap is a way we can potentially shine a light on being KIND instead of crotchety towards each other in fandom.
Being a part of a fandom can impact your life far more than expected. We find ourselves relating to the characters more deeply, we meet folks that turn into genuine friends, we participate in charity events that make the world better, spurred on by our fandom relations...see how it goes? But it can get vitriolic too, for a whole host of reasons.
This simple reminder, trying to take one day to sit back and do nothing but be patient and tolerant and wank-free, is a step in the right direction. That's all it is! No donations, no nuthin' but a promise to can the wank for one...single...day.
Easy, right? July 12 is that day. Sign up HERE.

Thank you to my wonderful artist and co-mod, dizzojay for working with an incomplete fic and yet turning out a piece that goes so well with the story. And thank you to tari_roo and zelda_addict for the beta work on this story and for ramblin_rosie for allowing me to bounce ideas off of her.
This story was prompted by boysinperil and was originally intended for her but she was unable to finish the Spring Fic Exchange. So as a Thank You to all the authors, artists, betas, cheerleaders and commenters, this is for the entire community! You guys are why the mods work so hard to make this a fun place to be! We come here each day because we know you want to be here, too!
