Shadow Lane: A Winchester Obsession
Fanfic and Fanart Auction for Doctors Without Borders

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.

Check comment above yours. That's all I'm saying.

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!

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!

The above comment SHOULD have read:

Lol. Or, there is that.

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

I fail...at life.

I'll save you the trouble of checking, I will LOL !

How's that?
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.
