[ profile] fandomaid is doing a buy it now fundraiser to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan (donation information here). Since I'm usually terribly slow about filling fic requests*, I've offered 3 sets of up to 25 icons here (A:TLA, Saving Face, Love Actually, Star Trek Reboot, or non-fandom).

*Speaking of which, I am still working on the treat meme prompts. My writing-brain is slow to start, ugh.

Hi all! A friend is selling some Indian jewelry to fund her trip to the US and is trying to post things by this Friday. If you're interested, you can check it out at ChunInda. :)

Books I've read this week:
+ Toshokan Sensou/Library Wars, v. 1,3,4: So obviously I love the anime series, but there's definitely some more character/relationship development time in the manga adaptation. Must track down the rest of the volumes!
+ Alif the Unseen, by G. Willow Wilson: I picked this up after seeing [personal profile] yasaman's mention of it. Having finished it yesterday, I'm still a bit too overwhelmed to be coherent about it, but it definitely did not disappoint!

And now I'm off to the library to return Painted Skin II (sob) and hunt down some more books!

Seeing as my highly-elevated neighborhood came through unscathed, I'm planning on trekking to Chinatown/the Lower East Side with some friends to volunteer tomorrow! We're looking to join CAAAV's relief efforts, but I know there are tons of other hurricane response initiatives. A highly incomplete list of links:

+ NYC Service
+ NY1: ways to help relief efforts
+ NYCares disaster response

Plus, some (semi-belated) information via fb:
Brooklyn )

Queens )

Manhattan )

Bronx )

Feel free to drop more in the comments!

Someday I will have enough energy to do more than drive-by blogging again, but in the meantime: [community profile] help_for_ephemere is open for offers, and is also accepting donations!
This is a fundraiser to benefit [personal profile] ephemere, with the aim of supporting her in the wake of her losing her job, home, and good relations with her family due to homophobia. The idea of this fundraiser was conceived by friends of [personal profile] ephemere, and is being run with her permission. Funds will go to rent, utilities, food, and medical bills.

I'm offering an icon set, but there are lots of other items up for auction. Go forth and browse and signal-boost!

Internets! Hello! Am still about 50% MIA and more than usually incoherent, but I just wanted to remind you all that today is the last day to officially sign up for Kaleidoscope, so if you want to make something and get something in return, now is the time to make your picks!

Also, yes I have spent too much time stalking the current signups list dear artists and vidders, if you have the time and are interested in any of these fandoms, please consider signing up! We really appreciate the offers that everyone has already made, but there is still a fairly large gap between offers and requests. /shameless overexcited begging

&hearts &tea; &sparkles;

1. KALEIDOSCOPE SIGN-UPS ARE OPEN! *\o/* &hearts &Team Darkness; Extra extra heartspam for [personal profile] troisroyaumes for coding the sign-up form.

2. Potluck! As you may have noticed Potluck #3 did not go up as planned, but we are going to relaunch! [personal profile] yifu has a poll re: timeline-planning here, please take it if you are thinking about submitting. &hearts

-- because of course I am flailing about offline while everybody is being thinky and brilliant on the internets. :P

A few #YesGayYA links, more for my reference at this point than anyone else's:
» [personal profile] oyceter: Diversity in YA. I particularly love this post because I sort of... don't see the point of people arguing over a single "best" or "winning" solution for a thorny multi-level problem, when really what is needed is to tackle it at every level, community and individual, in whatever ways are possible.
» [personal profile] deepad: In which I am derailing and contrary and also unsupportive of the Market, because (among her many other points) while having/establishing a baseline of identity representation is important, I also don't believe it is enough. (I remember being grateful for Memoirs of a Geisha the first time I read it; I wouldn't wish such a feeling- for such a book!- on any East Asian immigrant child arriving and growing up here after me.)
» [personal profile] colorblue goes further into hierarchy dissection here.
» [personal profile] ephemere: Just business, because- well. Yes. *is incoherent*

Since I am likely to continue flailing about offline and being sporadic on the internets, have a signal-boost while I'm here: [personal profile] ephemere is taking pre-orders for Kandila, a calligraphy poembook! If you have not seen her calligraphy or art, GO AND OGLE FORTHWITH BECAUSE IT IS MADE OF MUCH GLORIOUS.

Convenient map of NYC mandatory evacuation zones!

(I remain unfazed by the prospect of hurricane weather, but, you know. For reference's sake! & in case you happen to be near/in a flooding zone this weekend.)

Looks like the next two days are enforced naptime for me.
glass_icarus: (uraboku: ickle!hotsuma)
... er. All excitement aside, I don't want to constantly spam you guys about Kaleidoscope, really! It's just that there are things that slip my mind (and new posts rolling out) every time I signal-boost. ><;


» If you're interested in making icons or banners for Kaleidoscope, you can submit them here at the graphics challenge post!

» If you'd like to signal-boost or just want to see what shiny things people have come up with, check out the Promotional Graphics & Templates post!

» We've also posted a Nomination Addendum for those who are mulling over their choices and/or are confused by our wording.

Y'all, I do not expect earthquakes here! But more to the point, the US East Coast is IN NO WAY earthquake-prepared, which is why the parents just freaked out (we're from Taiwan).

Recent quake info courtesy [personal profile] avendya, whom I was gchatting at the time; also, when looking for information on fault lines I found this, which fellow US East Coasters may be interested to know.

» [personal profile] yifu kindly agreed to host Potluck #3, which is now open for submissions! The theme is fruits and the deadline is August 31.

» In other news, I have been eaten by work and training and socializing and basically keeping on top of ALL THE THINGS- which has once again left me behind on internet obligations. ><;;; However! Weekend is upcoming, I will be catching up very soon. I don't expect I'll be around these parts very much beyond those for... er, a while, so: &hearts!

1. Announcing Dark Agenda's Kaleidoscope Fanwork Exchange- the sekrit project of Team Darkness is now unveiled and open for feedback! SO EXCITED OMG.

2. We are now exactly one week into the two-week extension for Potluck #2: Comfort Food! As always, signal-boosts are appreciated, and remember- if you've seen a post that you think fits our parameters, you can always suggest that the writer submit it at the link. ;)
glass_icarus: (potluck 1)
The deadline for Potluck #2 has been extended to May 31! You can drop submissions at the link. Hopefully this gives more people the opportunity to participate! All signal-boosting is appreciated. :3

Other nice things: [personal profile] littlebutfierce's 3w4dw love meme! Thank you for my thread, as;dlkfj. I will spam you guys when I have recovered sufficient brain to string words together &hearts

([personal profile] azuire, I will get to your picspam! As soon as I manage to actually... remember my camera, orz.)
glass_icarus: (potluck 2)
Since my Arrival post is still in-progress, have some fandom babble!

1. Remix is live, as is Remix Madness! [community profile] dark_agenda has a list of chromatic Remix stories; please hop over and check them out if you're interested. As always, corrections and additions are welcome! :3 (Please note that we haven't collated the Remix Madness stories yet, though.)

Somebody chose to rework one of my old Good Omens stories; just (or not quite) like (girl afraid remix) is adorable and made me laugh so much, and just. &PEPPER;;;;;;; I miss this fandom kind of a lot right now! Maybe it's time to revisit it.

I haven't had the chance to do much reading yet... or, well, let me say rather that I haven't had time to compile links to my favorites yet. I will get to that, hopefully soon but definitely eventually. >.>

2. It is now May (already! wtf!), which means that the deadline for Potluck is just under two weeks away! You can submit links here or at the DW crosspost. Also, [personal profile] yiduiqie and I are still looking for hosts for future editions, so if you are interested, please get in touch with us!
