Is this thing on?
*shades eyes to look out into the dark*
If there's anyone out there, this won't be my usual wordy-style post. Shocker, I know.Two of my besties compelled me to post today.
First up, Gemma from Twi-sted Edbrella.
She is co-hosting a fundraiser called Fandom for Heroes. Here is the site summary.
Welcome to the page that aims to put together a compilation of fanfic stories from various fandoms, and original pieces of fiction from fandom authors, in aid of the servicemen and women, past and present, of the United Kingdom.
Sign up, donate, support xx
Donations are in British pounds, so here is a handy calculator to convert from American Dollar to British Pound: click here
There are less than two weeks left to donate to a good cause and receive a copy of the author compilation.
Next up, kiTT from Tongue-Twied.
We talk constantly, much to her frustration some days, I'm sure ;) The subject line of this morning's email from her simply said, "seen this?" I hadn't and more than likely wouldn't have if she hadn't brought it to my attention. It's powerful and made me cry. Another shocker, I know.
As some of you know, my nephew is gay. I love him unconditionally and am so proud of him. I am proud of my sister too, who also loves him unconditionally yet struggles daily with how that fits into her faith. It's easy for people, even me sometimes, to sit in judgement of that struggle, but her love for her son has never, ever been in question. It is a journey my entire family is walking, but I know that...with faith...we will get there together and be stronger because of it.

Finally, both of my besties just happen to be ff writers too. I thought this would be a good time to sneak in a shout out because that's what friends are for. I hope you add them to your Favorites.
*takes a drink of water*
Um. Yeah. About that not being wordy...
Thanks for listening.
