Public post, 'cause I'm probably going to pimp this later.
Well, pimping in a minute. Right now: Oooo the Jared Eyecon panel has happened, and he has the photobook! We made speechless!Jared! And teary!Jared! Okay! Fandom is definitely full of weird, but we also rule.
(For those of you joining the party, there was a photobook made of 200+ fan photos with Jared, and then donations were taken toward the cost, the excess going to The Animal Rescue Site. We raised $5000 after paying for the book.)
I cannot wait for video of this, you guys. Also: JARED VOTES FOR EVIL!SAM. tahirire
, I expect your report of this groundbreaking news
to make the rounds at the appropriate (dark!boys) comms, okay? ;)
In other news of fandom rocking and raising money, don't forget about Sweet Charity
. You can buy a fic from me to benefit Invisible Children. There are 130 other people signed up, which you can see at the link. :)
Okay. But also. I completed my John mix! And I swear, I am going to take a break from fanmixing after this, okay? But I had to do it, because I.... well. I did it. ;)

But for now you get a zip, and as always if you don't recognize an artist they're probably small-time and if you like them YOU SHOULD GET MOAR TRACKS, LEGALLY. (Okay there aren't that many small-time people on here but I still uphold: SUPPORT your neighborhood starving artists, okay?)
In other random news that I am reporting here for prosterity (mostly my own reference)... Not all of it is out there for the world to see, but I have commited at least 25k words to writing in this fandom.... O.O Um, wow, that kind of rocks. It's .... for someone who usually has writing hovering around 500 words? Yeah. I have learned how to make bigger plots, guys, and it is awesome!
