Shadow Lane: A Winchester Obsession
Fanfic and Fanart Auction for Doctors Without Borders 
5th-Aug-2009 08:43 am
Dean - Coffee
Here we go again:

This time around the auction is for Christmas Fundraiser Writing Project at writersfordwb.  The idea behind the writersfordwbcommunity is rather than send the Jensen and Jared christmas presents, we decided it would be better to send a donation to one of the boys' charities instead. We chose Doctors Without Borders (Jensen's charity), as we know there are a lot of fundraisers going on at the minute for Jared's charity.  

We plan on hosting an auction with nothing but your stories or artwork for sale. What do I mean by story? This can be an already finished story you have sitting around on your harddrive, this can be a half-finished story, an idea you have that begs to written or nothing concrete at all (winner chooses the story).   There's a 3,000 words minimum with no maximum and you get 90 days after the auction ends to complete your story and send it to the winner (with the possibility of getting more time if the winner agrees to it). You're allowed to auction off more than one story.

When the auction ends, the winner will donate their money straight to our
firstgiving page. To make matter easier to check, make sure you enter your LiveJournal name or add it between brackets after your real name (but those are worries for later). As soon as the payment is made, the writer can send his story to the winner. (if it's already finished, of course).

The sign-ups will end the 31st of August. The auction will start the 1st of September and will end the 30th.

For the auction, the writer sign-ups thread will be used again. We'll have a list with names. If you want to bid on a story, simply reply to the comment of the writer of your choice. If someone has already made a bid and you want to go higher, reply to the previous bid etc.

Yes I cheated and took the explanation off the community profile and yellowwolf 's livejournal, have you seen my icon?  I'm tired, cold and don't have nearly enough caffeine in my system to explain well enough on my own, so I cheated. *shrug*  Hey at least I'm honest about it.

You can go here to see who has signed up to write fic and here to see who's signed up to do art.  This is my fic offering hereEdit: I'm now offering to do a podic also here.

Now I'm off to face that freakin' highway.  Have a great day guys.

Edited to correct spelling mistakes.  Note to self: Rhyanne use of spell check is a MUST when brain is not fully caffeinated.

That's great. I hope I don't get outbid on you again like last time or if I am that they let me know.

Re note to self, yes spell check is always a good idea but not 100% accurate because the spelling of the word could be right but it not be the right word & that wouldn't show as an error. Words like lose & loose, your & you're...

With this one, I know that if you click on the "track this" link on my comment, it let's you know when someone replies.

Oh look my beta has appeared. lol. Yeah I know but the words that I replaced once I realized that they were spelled wrong really were spelled wrong. Admittedly though, we both know that I'm guilty of the other mistake too, quite a bit actually.
6th-Aug-2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
hey is it possible to still sign up for this, i wanna do this lol!
6th-Aug-2009 06:30 pm (UTC)
Oh and you do know I will soo bid on you once again right?
6th-Aug-2009 06:58 pm (UTC)
Check comment above yours. That's all I'm saying.
6th-Aug-2009 06:57 pm (UTC)
Yup, just click on writersfordwb there's a post for writers and a separate one for artists. I think sign ups close Aug.31.
7th-Aug-2009 12:05 am (UTC)
It will track when someone replies to this thread but what about for the auction ? They e-mailed me for the first few bids & then they stopped so I lost out on you & another writer. LJ really hates me sometimes!

Yes & what's wrong with that LOL ! They were just examples & I didn't mean that you specifically did this LOL!

10th-Aug-2009 02:06 pm (UTC)
I can't remember which Charity it was that you bid on me before...okay this might just prove that I'm a Charity whore. *g* But I do know that the fics4books one on lj that used the comments for the acution, I just used the notifications from each time someone replied to loverstar's offering to keep track and outbid everyone else. Of course that only works when the email notifications are working...hello livejournal pay attention!

*snort* Yeah but we DO know that I specifically do that.
10th-Aug-2009 02:37 pm (UTC)
Ok I do it the good old fashioned way. Stay up at the last minute, and refresh the page seeing who's going to outbid me.
10th-Aug-2009 02:43 pm (UTC)
Lol. Or, this is that.
10th-Aug-2009 02:51 pm (UTC)
I am super bored come talk to meeeeeeeee! LOL!
10th-Aug-2009 03:44 pm (UTC)
The above comment SHOULD have read:

Lol. Or, there is that.

Not: Lol. Or, this is that. *sigh*

I fail...at life.
10th-Aug-2009 11:53 pm (UTC)
No you don't fail at life

I tried that last time but with the different time zones involved, I would have fallen asleep at work if I would have stayed up that late
10th-Aug-2009 11:48 pm (UTC)
I'll save you the trouble of checking, I will LOL !
10th-Aug-2009 11:49 pm (UTC)
How's that?
10th-Aug-2009 11:51 pm (UTC)
WOW, you're quick. I meant that I was going to be the one to outbid you since it worked so well for me last time LOL!
10th-Aug-2009 11:57 pm (UTC)
Let the best girl win lol!
11th-Aug-2009 12:00 am (UTC)
You're on ! Either way for me it's a win win situation because I get to read another one of her great stories.
11th-Aug-2009 12:05 am (UTC)

hey we could always share if others try to beat us!
11th-Aug-2009 12:17 am (UTC)
That's a great idea !
11th-Aug-2009 12:44 am (UTC)

11th-Aug-2009 12:59 am (UTC)
How do we do it ?
11th-Aug-2009 01:03 am (UTC)
I think we just tell them we're sharing a fic and we can split the bidding amount down the middle!
11th-Aug-2009 01:15 am (UTC)
Another good idea.
11th-Aug-2009 01:31 am (UTC)
Better than deciding who pays! LOL
11th-Aug-2009 01:34 am (UTC)
I agree & maybe we can raise more ! LOL!
11th-Aug-2009 02:05 pm (UTC)
Note to self: Rhyanne never, ever, piss off fanofsuper and loverstar consecutively as there is a really, really good chance they shall conspire against you.

12th-Aug-2009 12:14 am (UTC)
You're probably right about that LOL ! ;)
12th-Aug-2009 03:01 pm (UTC)
Oh I know I'm right. *points at self* Evil remember? It makes it easier for me to spot other evil a mile away. *g*
13th-Aug-2009 01:43 am (UTC)
Are you calling us evil ? Lol! That could piss us off LOL !
13th-Aug-2009 02:14 pm (UTC)
Coming from me, it's a compliment! Or I guess, maybe a curse.

But on the bright side, my evil resonates from the ninth circle of hell and I'm pretty sure that's the one the "Going to Hell in a Handbasket" bus will be dropping off most of us in fandom so really, how could that be a bad thing?

Mwahahahaha!...oops I mean *bg*

*sigh* More coffee is in order since I misspelled ninth. *shakes head* Honestly!

14th-Aug-2009 12:25 am (UTC)
Or maybe a little of both LOL ! And no it's not a bad thing LOL! We'll all be together LOL!

Coffee not required , you misspelled it but you were alert enough to correct it. LOL !
24th-Aug-2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
*snort* Who are you kidding? Coffee is always required...okay I may be addicted.
25th-Aug-2009 12:19 am (UTC)
No doubt about it ! LOL! You have that in common with Dean.
I don't drink coffee so I'm more like Sam !
12th-Aug-2009 01:55 pm (UTC)
Note to self: never make plans super obvious to Rhyanne because she might foil them. PS Rhyanne has a weakness, I'm suspecting cheese or in-laws or a combonation of both. Make ultimate recipe of DOOOM!

Edited at 2009-08-12 02:19 pm (UTC)
12th-Aug-2009 03:00 pm (UTC)
Okay the in laws - yes that I get but cheese??? *snort* Well at least it made me laugh. *shakes head* Cheese???
12th-Aug-2009 03:04 pm (UTC)
LOL I was hoping you were allergic!
12th-Aug-2009 03:47 pm (UTC)
Nope not cheese. Now if we're talking Vodka and trying to figure out a way to put me in a hospital...
12th-Aug-2009 03:49 pm (UTC)
12th-Aug-2009 03:51 pm (UTC)
And have 911 on speed dial. I'm not kidding I really am that allergic to vodka.
13th-Aug-2009 12:15 am (UTC)
Are you only allergic to vodka ?

I'm allergic to all alcohol. Can't even take cough syrup with alcohol in it
13th-Aug-2009 02:37 pm (UTC)
Yup, found that out the hard way when I was 23. Until that point I only drank Tequila, Gin or Rum but on that day my future (now) mother in law and I decided to have screwdrivers. After the second one I acted like I had been drinking, hard, all day. Stopped, ate thinking it was because I had no food in my stomach, got half way through the third screwdriver passed out and no one could rouse me, started throwing up while unconscious, ambulance was called, they intubated so I wouldn't choke to death and could, you know, breath, was roused at hospital and forced to eat/drink this charcoal crap to help me throw up the rest of booze in my stomach since they didn't believe that there was enough left to warrant having my stomach pumped. Got to stay at the hospital for 24 hours while they ran a bunch of tests and in the end was told that I am allergic to either potato mash or Rye mash so not to drink Vodka or home brew since you never know if it's corn or potato and Rye because Vodka is made with one or the other. Oh and not to drink Rye either, obviously.
14th-Aug-2009 12:21 am (UTC)
WOW ! I'm glad you're okay.

My finding out is not as traumatic as that. It was when I was very young & was first given cough syrup that had alcohol in it & it made me very sick. I can't drink at all. It's funny how many people feel sorry for me when they find out, they say they couldn't live that way. I tell it's easy not to miss something you have never had
24th-Aug-2009 11:29 pm (UTC)
Cough syrup is overrated and honestly I have yet to see it do what it promises to. You're not missing out on anything but your pocketbook being lightened.
25th-Aug-2009 12:16 am (UTC)
That's true but also no relief for a sore throat or cough when I get them

The only one that everyone says works great is Buckleys but I can't stand the smell, let alone the taste of it. If they are smart enough to make a cough syrup that works so well, they should be able to figure out how to make it taste good too
10th-Aug-2009 11:50 pm (UTC)
You were the one that told me about the last one too.
I don't think it was Loverstar that outbid me or if she did, wasn't the one that won, but I could be mistaken

Yes you do but that's okay. If it helps you're not the only author that does.
