I am not an arty person. I rarely have a burning desire to dash to see a piece of installation art but oh my,Banksy and friends have outdone themselves in Weston-Super-Mare and I am gutted that I am too far away to go and experience it.

The imagery depicted in what I can see in press releases of Dismaland is deliciously dark and satirical. Honestly, it gives me creative chills of the ooh inspiration for pitch-black dark fic kind.

Now, I'm not saying that some of my flist share my love of all things dark and dystopian *cough* [livejournal.com profile] sylsdarkplace [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator [livejournal.com profile] fufaraw [livejournal.com profile] tipsy_kitty the whole of the [livejournal.com profile] evilsam_spn community and more *cough* but I am not going to waste an opportunity by not drawing attention to the general yumminess and possibilities for all sorts of creativity.

Check out a few:

And I am pretty sure there will be a ton load more over the internet over the next few weeks. So yes, I'll just wait over here with puppy eyes and human sacrifices.

Oh and in case you are in the West Country in the next five weeks and want to check  it for real  (because dude - the entry fee is only £3.00 an adult to see work by 58 artists) just to make me cry with insane jealousy  the official site for tickets to Dismaland Bemusement Park and info is here.

Snack Therapy
Rating: PG-13
Description: Non-AU (but can be read either as just J2 or with the assumption that their families are 'off-screen').
After bowing out of Jibcon'15, Jared waited for Jensen to get home from AHBL. Cake is therapy- right?

Loosely follows Midnight Snacks and Forbidden Snack. *Shakes head* I may have inadvertantly created a crack drabble 'verse based on food.
Length: Drabble (100 words)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fufaraw for quickly checking my Americanization.
Disclaimer: This is all fiction folks, the boys don't belong to me and they aren't getting in my van for candy any time soon.
Home, and Texas air. It was therapeutic, but Jared needed something… someone more.

Vanilla aroma drifted in the air. Jared followed the twitch of his nose.

He spotted a glass of wine, “Drink Me!” a post-it urged. He sipped it on the way to the kitchen.

A frosted cupcake stood alone. “Eat Me!” it tempted.

It was delicious. Maybe there were more?

Jared startled as he sneaked into the pantry. “Kiss Me!” the post-it on Jensen enticed him.

Jared obeyed. He sighed happily with the slide of their lips, and slyly repurposed a post-it on himself. “Eat me!” it invited.

I know I haven't been here forever. I've not been up to participating in fandom or communicating much lately - but this is not about me, THIS is important, this is about Lia ([livejournal.com profile] sylsdarkplace). Some of you may have seen her journal entry describing what is going on with her.

In short she has breast cancer and is undergoing treatment which has a good success rate. However, she is wading through this hardship with health insurance that is dependant on her remaining working, and barely covers the basics of her treatment. It is painful, exhausting and financially crippling.

[livejournal.com profile] vennstiel, describes it best here where she has set up a gofund me for LIa, for anyone to donate whatever they can.

I know that on LJ her help, advice and kindness has been experienced by so many so I am sharing the link here so that everyone has a chance to give. Not everyone is in a position to give anything but shares or signal boosts of this would be helpful too, and if you have a Tumblr then you can follow her personal account killertatas for updates, and to let her know that she is not alone with this.

*bows out*

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sanshal and [livejournal.com profile] stir_of_echoes, this has already gotten around pretty quickly, but I thought I'd boost the signal.

The Ebooks Tree site is apparently pulling works of fiction from AO3 and hosting them as PDFs and mobi downloads on their site. There's a link to a Tumblr with helpful suggestions for requesting a takedown Here!.

They have my MTW verse there as a single download, though they don't list anything else I've posted. But if you post to AO3, you might want to check if your fic isn't on offer at Ebooks tree, too. There is apparently no charge to download from them, but a friend tells me that site does deflect to two others which do charge to download or read, so somebody is making profit off of fic that isn't theirs.

Ebooks Tree is not reading your “do not copy/duplicate” notes on your AO3 fic; their bots are pulling things directly from AO3, without AO3′s authorization or assent. AO3 is aware of the situation, and is working on it.

Unfortunately, it seems that once you are on one site there are dozens of others, all leading back through various download sites to the same place claiming not to charge but insisting on your credit card details - Huge Game.net - and these guys don't give out their contact unless you have... guess what...signed up with your credit card. HINT- DON'T. I can see that one of their faq's is 'why have you charged my credit card?'

Just a selection I've come across with my fic (some claim to be forums but have 'innocent bloggers' redirecting to the download links - they are all similar)


They seem to be breeding. I don't think they actually care about copyright because I suspect it is actually all about getting credit card details.

Over the past year my creativity has dwindled to almost zilch, so deciding to open gimp for Valentines Day is rather epic, but i didn't want to ignore my Valentine ladies this year.

I generally have no idea what I'm doing, but this was fun and I'm actually happy with how they turned out.

So, this Valentine's day, in celebration of interesting and strong female characters, I give you Sonya Valentine and Beka Valentine, because, if Christian Grey came within six foot of either of them, it would likely be the end of his story. Permanently.

I'm not so thrilled with this one, but it is the first time I've really got to grips with an extra layer, so...
