fic for charity!  
Okay, guys. As most of you know, Andrew McMahon (of Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate) is a personal hero of mine. Five years ago he was diagnosed with leukemia, and through following his journey and subsequent recovery, I learned a lot about the disease and the measures being taken to fight it.

Andrew turned me towards Light the Night, a foundation that raises money for leukemia and lymphoma research. Every year they hold a walk to raise money, and this year I will be participating, representing the Sacramento, CA chapter of the Jack's Mannequin team for Light the Night. The walk is on October 2nd.

So, I am asking for your donations. Every little cent helps, and this really is an amazing group. These are the people that have lived it, or loved someone that has lived it, or lost someone that did their best to fight it. These are the people desperate to find a cure.

My donation page is HERE. I really believe in this cause, and I am more than happy to offer fic to anyone that makes a donation of at least five dollars.

Here's how it will work: every $5 USD will equal a guaranteed 500 words, and so on. Donate $5, get 500 words or more, $10 gets 1,000 or more, $50 gets 5,000 words or more, etc. It will go on like this until $100. If any generous soul out there donates $100, your story will be no less than 15,000 words.

You guys know what I like to write. The fic will be J2, based on a prompt of your choosing and/or a timestamp to any of my existing stories. Also, I will write any pairing that already exists in a story I've written (ie: James/Misha in love 'verse, etc).

If you donate, please send a screen print of your donation confirmation and your desired prompt to _mournthewicked@livejournal.com. You may also direct any questions to the comments of this entry, or to that address. Donations are accepted up until the date of the walk, which is October 2nd. So there's a lot of time!


This is not exclusive to my flist, so spread the word! I'd appreciate your help, guys. I myself don't have much money to give, so I'm donating my time, effort, and with your help, hopefully a whole bunch of words! ♥

People in our fandom never cease to amaze me with their generosity. I'm happy to repost and I'll donate as well.

Just wondering when the cut off date is for donations.

Thanks and good luck. Hope you're typing fingers are ready :)

Aw, well. anything I can do to help! And you know what, putting a date in there somewhere might have been a good idea. I'll do that. XD

The walk is October 2nd, so I assume donations are accepted up until that point.

Thank you so much!

YES! I would be happy to write them. I'll change the entry to state that I will write any pairing that I've already written before. Which includes Misha/Katie! :DD

ETA: Also, I really do enoy the step-sibling pairing. And I LOVE Sam/Dean. I just can't do the Winchesters justice.

Aww. Yes, you have until October. I must say, I already have a few ideas swimming around in my head for your story. IT IS INTRIGUING.

If you're into Something Corporate, have you ever listened to Jack's Mannequin? Andy was the singer / song writer / piano player for SoCo and Jack's is his new band. They're incredible.

Anyway, yes! I have watched SPN since the beginning and I started shipping them around Skin when it was still new and dirty. :P I LOVE Sam/Dean, like, a lot, but I just can't write them in a way I feel does them justice. I've tried!

*looks at finances*


Hmm. I have until October 2 to come up with $100? (And I assume they'll send me something I can use to take the tax deduction?)
miss california._mournthewicked on July 30th, 2010 03:25 pm (UTC)
Hee. I will have to ask the foundation if there is a cut-off date. I couldn't find one, so I assume that donations will be accepted up until the actual walk, but I will find out for sure.

You rock, Nessa. Seriously. <3

Just thought I'd give you a heads up that I fully plan on donating $100 after I get back from my two trips in September. :)

Of course, now I'm curious if I can convince you to write another Sam/Castiel fic... *shifty eyes* But I'll be just as happy with J2, since I'm completely hooked on your fic regardless. :)

*waves* I tend to lurk and read your stories, but I donated today, and I just want to say thank you so much for doing this.

In middle school, a classmate of ours was diagnosed with leukemia, and I'm so very grateful that you introduced me to this amazing foundation.
