I wish I could think of what to say, and there are endless articles extolling Buffy's virtues (which are all good, but none quite reflect ME). I guess above all she gave me fandom, fic, meta, all you lot... ♥

ETA: Oh, and if anyone's curious, here is My Buffy History. :)
elisi: (Nice)
[personal profile] kerkevik_2014 is offering to write fic for donations for [personal profile] a_phoenixdragon's Go Fund Me

His posts are here on DW and here on LJ.

Re. fandoms then I say just ask, but certainly Buffy, Angel, Doctor Who, Torcwhood, Star Wars, Star Trek etc. :)

[personal profile] a_phoenixdragon still needs help!

Her GoFundMe is here, so if anyone can spare a penny or two (or more) that would be great.

I can't imagine picking up my family and moving cross country, with no safety net, on the hope and belief that surely tomorrow will be better than today. I hope and pray that everything will work out for them. So please help if you can. I'm sure every little contribution will make a difference.

Kathy - thank you so much for the lovely card!

And [personal profile] owlboy - your parcel got here!! Actually it got here a while ago. I'm not sure WHEN as I found it in the back of the wardrobe with all the Christmas presents, and asked Darcy what that parcel was I'd never seen it before. And he shrugged, so I pulled it out and omg it was yours!!! Thank you SO MUCH I shall wrap it and put it under the tree for her. :D

ETA: Also many thanks to [personal profile] hobbituk - the Cherub loves the card and wonders how you made it.

And [personal profile] the_royal_anna - just seeing your beautiful handwriting is enough to make me smile, and the little present was delightful. Thank you. ♥

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon at The GFM has done rather well so far...
...but it needs to go a touch further. If you can, spread the word and keep it going! We're about a third of the way through and we just need to be able to cover gas, electric and insurance at this point.

Hubby may have a job soon (keep your fingers crossed!! *Squees and tries to not jinx it!!*), which should (hopefully) help with rent, but if we need to get a boost there, I will let everyone know. For now, we're hanging in there, we just need to get a little more momentum going!

Thank you, thank you, thank you - for all that you do! You have all been so, so amazing these last couple of months and it is heartening and uplifting to have such an awesome online family! Blessings to you all...and thank you - from my little family to each and every one of you! Hopefully we will come to a better place soon. One where we can pay forward all the kindness we have received.

That would be fantastic!!

Just need to get that tad bit further, guise. Feel free to share, tweet and boost this whereever you can. And thank you, thank you once more!

...and did another GoFundMe campaign. I'm really looking forward to hubby getting that job - but until then, any and all help would be appreciated! Link can be found here:

If you can, please boost the signal (here, FB, Twitter - matters not), it would mean the world to us over here! And thank you, thank you for always listening, always being supportive - and being the warm, sweet folks you always are!

Well, the header is the cliffnotes version of the mess that I am currently dealing with in my house, and of course, I would have to break my... break from LJ with bad news. Jared is offshore, as well, so I'm currently on my own, in a house with no central heating or running water. I promise there's a cheerier post coming on the tails of this one, and if you don't want to hear about my miserable life, feel totally un-judged if you keep on scrolling. Details under the cut.

We are only a little way away from our goal, guise. I hate to ask again, but if you can share, repost and tweet once more, we may actually make it to the 22nd. :D I am posting the updated links here to make it a little easier -

Thank you so, so much for all of your help! I couldn't have made it this far without you all!

Edit: I woudn't ask again like this, but I just made the car payment and the insurance came out of the account yesterday. We are down to about 50 dollars (maybe a little less) in the bank account. This is the only reason I am reposting and asking for help once more....thank you for listening, always! And thank you for all that you have done for us!

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon at Help with Household Bills (GoFundMe Post)
My family and I are really short on funds this month - and while my new job finally starts tomorrow (after a two-three week wait for scheduled training), I will not be getting paid until the 22nd. That is quite a long way away - and our savings are pretty much depleted. I have enough to maybe get us through this week (and maybe a few days after), but not nearly enough for all the bills that are racking up demanding due payment soon. And to add to that, we will still need gas, food and other household necessities covered beyond the other bills.

If you can, please donate or spread the word. I know this is a tough time for everyone - but every little bit helps:

GoFundMe: Household Bills Fund

GoFundMe on Facebook


If you need to talk to me, you can always PM me here or at FB. If you have my email, you can even ping me there. :D

Any help with this is massively appreciated (I just hope you all know this!) and if you can - please pass it along. Thank you, thank you, thank you - always - for your help, your support and your warm hearts.

Also, don't do that again. I don't cope well...

Will now get to my flist & comments. :)

Had a lovely afternoon/evening - went out shopping w/birthday money/vouchers and got a lovely burgundy winter coat (SO WARM) which I've needed for years.

Then went round to my in-laws and had a v. nice time with all the family, and got more cards, a beautiful bracelet with blue stones, Ferrero Rocher and a bit more money. There were lots of cute kids and pizzas and a birthday cake and good company. :)

ETA: Also Happy Belated Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon! I never realised your birthday was on Back to the Future Day!! Hope it was awesome.
