Okay, people. I need you to take this viral, and fast.

We know someone in upstate New York who needs a good custody lawyer ASAP. I'm not at liberty to go into details publicly, but this woman is very afraid that her abusive boyfriend is going to get sole custody of her young child.  She's presently being represented by a court-assigned lawyer who doesn't seem to care about the case, and she has very few resources left at this point. Her next hearing is on Thursday.

If you know a good lawyer in New York State who might be willing to take this case for a low fee or pro bono, or at least offer her advice or support, please let me know. If you don't know anyone, please repost this far and wide. As a mother and an abuse survivor, it makes me absolutely sick to my stomach to contemplate a child being left in the hands of an abuser.

I can be reached at kythryne@gmail.com if you have any leads or want to help.

The internet can work miracles. Let's go.



Edit, Tuesday afternoon: Huge, huge thanks to everyone who has signal-boosted, offered resources, emailed me, and otherwise been willing to help. Our friend is overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers. Amy and I are driving over to New York tomorrow afternoon so we can provide support in person, and we are working on plans to help our friend and her daughter get back on their feet once the custody case is over.

(If you would be interested in donating an item or service to a fundraising auction in the near future, please let me know. Our friend is a talented artist and a wonderful mother to a beautiful little girl who deserves a safe home, and it wouldn't take much to make a huge difference in their lives.)

Edit the second, Friday morning: we found a marvelous lawyer!  Our friend and her daughter are safe with us - with the court's permission - for the next couple of weeks, and I'm going to be setting up a fundraising auction this weekend. The lawyer has agreed to a payment plan, but it will still be quite expensive. Thank you again for the amazing help and support.

Edit the third, Sunday afternoon: Auctions are up! Thank you to everyone who has offered to contribute something for auction.

Decided to go with the fantasy plot afterall- made a quick banner for 'The Dark Hunter' :)


Writing and ting

Had a bad week this week with my parents, but i cant even be bothered to waste my time talking about them, so I'm writing about.. writing :)

Started writing a bit from mine and Lola's own AU rp for generation kill. Even though me and Lola don't write it anymore (and from what I know, Lola doesn't still write it) I can't help but go back to that story. It was so big. The family tree was extensive, every character was different, there was so much romance and angst and sexy men fights that I find it hard to let go.

So, yeah, I was thinking of opening a comm up of it, just to post whatever I wrote about those characters as like an archive or something. And then i'll write more to add to it and I can look back on it whenever I want ^_^

Except I'm shitty at lj layouts. As in, I have no idea what I'm going. So, can anyone offer or reccomend someone to help with that? 

I'll probably set up the comm tonight and post more about it here later ^_^ <3

 HAPPY NEW YEAR, GUYS!

I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
 Hey you guys!

Finally back on the net properly xD Just going through the 300+ in my inbox and then I will make a proper entry about this past week :)

:)

 
Step One

Make an LJ post. It can be public or friends only, whatever you’re most comfortable with. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes, and these wishes can be anything - from simple (a fan fiction written about your favorite pairing), to medium (a DVD you want), to really extravagant (a brand new laptop or car).
Just make sure these are wishes for things you really truly want.

Step Two
Skim through your friends list and see who has posted their own wish lists.
Then - and this is the most important part - if you find a wish you can grant, and it’s in your heart to do so, make sure that person’s wish comes true.
Sometimes a person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
If you have a leather jacket you don’t want or a gift certificate you’re never going to use, give it to someone who wants it.

Step Three
Post this wish list any time after November 1st. Then repost it two weeks before Christmas.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to.
The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday fairy - to spread the joy.
Gifts can be made anonymously or not, it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached.
Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive.
And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


My Wishlist:


- A Christmas Band of Brothers and/or a Generation Kill Christmas Fic (pairings to be Ray/Walt for GenKill and any pairing for BoB, you have freedom :) )
- A small Christmas stocking to put in front of my fire in my new house
- Letters, cards, or postcards from you guys :D

If you need my address at all just ask and I shall send it to you!
