This morning I dreamed that I was at a performance of The Mikado where Nanki-Poo was played by Paul Reubens (yes, Pee-Wee, but not as that character), but he couldn't sing so he was playing all his songs on a violin.

I was enjoying the hell out of this, and when I woke up, it was with an annoyed sense of Hey, I was watching that!

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Radio Free Monday!

Ways To Give:

Anon linked to a fundraiser for Natalie, who is fighting Hodgkin's Lymphoma and while her prognosis is good, she needs help to cover medical costs and living expenses during her recovery. You can read more and help Natalie out here.

[personal profile] notalwaysweak linked to a gofundme for [personal profile] surpassingly and [personal profile] darklightshades, who are struggling to cover loss of income while [personal profile] surpassingly is unable to work due to hospitalization. You can read more here, including links to their Patreons, or support them directly here.

[tumblr.com profile] capeandcowl linked to a fundraiser for Cameron and Justina, who are struggling to cover medical bills since Cameron's December diagnosis of stage-4 Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. You can read more and help them raise the funds they need here.

[personal profile] starlady linked to a fundraiser for SF author Katherine Kerr, who needs to hire a full-time caregiver for her husband, who is suffering from dementia. The fundraiser has reached its original goal to pay for a caregiver for long enough for Katherine to complete her latest book, but additional donations for longer-term care are welcome. You can read more and help out here.

[personal profile] starlady also linked to CrossingsCon, a group seeking to put on a convention celebrating Diane Duane's Young Wizard's books in 2016. They already have non-profit status, so donations are 100% tax-deductable, and there are tons of fun perks. You can check out their perks and support the con here.

[livejournal.com profile] editrx is still raising funds to keep her small new and used bookstore, Star Cat Books, open for business while she deals with car troubles, illness, and various bills. You can read more and support her fundraising here.

Housing:

Everlet linked to [tumblr.com profile] nyalist, who is looking for a (preferably fannish) roommate in Boston, MA; rent is $700/mo plus utilities (electric and internet). Private room, shared bath, laundry, and five minutes from the T! You can find out more at her Craigslist ad here.

Just For Fun:

[livejournal.com profile] jadesfire linked to the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, which in February will be showing a fake that they commissioned alongside genuine masterpieces, inviting visitors to guess which is which. If you're in the area, check it out!

And this has been Radio Free Monday! Thank you for your time. You can post items for my attention at the Radio Free Monday submissions form or via email at copperbadge at gmail dot com. If you're not sure how to proceed, here is a little more about what I do and how you can help (or ask for help!).

Mondays, every week, let's celebrate ourselves, to start the week right. Tell me what you're proud of. Tell me what you accomplished last week, something -- at least one thing -- that you can turn around and point at and say: I did this. Me. It was tough, but I did it, and I did it well, and I am proud of it, and it makes me feel good to see what I accomplished. Could be anything -- something you made, something you did, something you got through. Just take a minute and celebrate yourself. Either here, or in your journal, but somewhere.

(And if you feel uncomfortable doing this in public, I've set this entry to screen any anonymous comments, so if you want privacy, comment anonymously and I won't unscreen it. Also: yes, by all means, cheer each other on when you see something you want to give props to!)

Avengers

Aublanc: Orestes
This was a long, plotty action/adventure alien invasion story. I liked the slow build up, the plot, the character voices, and I liked the way Tony and Loki became friends.

(recs-Marvel,recs-Avengers,f4,Length:200k-300k,Pairing:Loki/TonyStark)


Captain America

Speranza - 4 Minute Window
I loved the character voices, the plot, and Steve and Bucky's yearning for each other felt real.

(recs-Marvel,recs-CaptainAmerica,f4,Length:20k-50k,Pairing:BuckyBarnes/SteveRogers,author-cesperanza)

The only reason I did the SF Hipster thing tonight in the whisk(e)y bar by the pier, sharing a flight of overpriced bourbons and ryes with a friend, was that I have now written fanfic featuring Thomas S. Handy Rye *twice*...and damn if that Sazerac one ain't pretty good, indeed.

Hat-tip to Olivia Dunham. As ever.

So I got about 90% of his panel on video. I'll upload it, but with the shitty wifi here in the hotel, it'll likely take me all night, or maybe until later in the week. If worse comes to worst, I'll upload it when I get home on Thursday.

My two Misha stories )

(WTF am I supposed to do with this now? I have a tampon Misha threw at me. I can't just throw it away. But it's a tampon. WTF. I AM SO LOST.)

When you see this, share lines from 3 random WIPs.

As I've mentioned several times, the complete lack of writing from me lately is because one of my drugs (and it's the one of my drugs that I can't sub out for something else) is fucking with my ability to string words together. That having been said, I do have a few things in progress that I work on when I can manage it. All FF7:

yes, this includes part 3 of Lullabye )

We are now home-home (we got back into the country last night but spent the night at the Newark airport hotel before taking the train back down today). Three out of four cats are doing the "You're home! We will now cling to you!" thing. The fourth is following me around and berating me constantly for having had the TEMERITY to ABANDON him. (If you guessed that's Gabe, you're correct.)

I am now going to spend the next week and a half making up my spoons deficit. Sigh.
