Need some tv help

Does anyone watch any of those reality DIY or design shows? Think like HGTV, TLC, Style network, etc. Does anyone watch the reality shows that focus on design, lifestyle, fashion, etc? (Not all of those things at once know what I mean.) Anyway, which are your favorites? I never watch them and I need some tips for a client.

Author Auction bidding ends soon!

The Fic Author Auction is over on Sunday! Get over there and get to bidding. There's authors from every fandom and the bids are getting exciting. And I gotta say, the commentary on the threads are hilarious.


I love watching all my friends here getting some great bids. rosie_spleen  is a hot commodity. So are tasyfa , alienmom  and majiklmoon .  Can't wait to see how it all turns out. Right now it's looking like angelicus  is going to win me and some Twilight fic. Are you guys going to give her some competition??  :)

Let the bidding begin!

Bidding on the Author Auction has begun! The Author Auction is to benefit and raise funds to support Stacie's fight with cancer. I posted all about it HERE.

Here's the skinny if it's TL;DR for you. Authors have put themselves on auction to write fan fic. The bidder who wins their author will get a fic written on demand for their fandom. All funds go to help raise money for Stacie's fight with cancer.

I took myself out of retirement (for the auction only) and am now up on the auctioning block. (EEK!) But what is even more stellar is the number of fic writers from fandoms across the board who have also offered themselves up. For Prison Break, it is me and the amazing rosie_spleen</lj>  (Rosie, you rock so hard I can feel it across the ocean). For Roswell, some of the amazing writers are back, like muffinkath7</lj> , majiklmoon</lj> .  Not to mention writers from Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Twilight (I'm taking a crack at this one), LOST, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who. For a full list of authors and fandoms who are on auction check it out HERE!

If you want to bid (GO BID! GO BID!), check out the instructions HERE. And keep track of how the bidding is going on the thread at Let The Bidding Begin!

Everyone go check it out, support your authors and give generously. Bidding ends on Sept 14th.

We need your help. Here's your chance to write fic and help out our friend truelovepooh .

We're raising money over at by holding a Fic Author Auction. Here's the deal: Fic Authors are putting themselves on the auction block. Their readers can bid to get their favorite author to write a short fic on demand. All funds will go to the Support Stacie fundraising. Our good friend truelovepooh is fighting a battle with cancer. As a mom with no health insurance, it makes a rough battle even worse. To help, fundraising efforts are coordinated by everyone over at and we need all the help we can get from authors AND readers.

And now for the SHOCKING news: I am coming out retirement to help out. I'm putting myself up to write fic for Roswell, Prison Break and (da da dum) Twilight. I haven't written Twilight before but I'm willing to take a crack at it. I have a feeling I can take Bella and Edward by storm.

I'm calling out some of the fantastic fic writers on my list to help out. Any fandom, any writer is welcome. Every little bit helps. If I can come out of retirement, so can you!

Here's the skinny from

Welcome to the 2008 SupportStacie Author Auction!

A Fanfic-On-Demand fundraiser is underway for friends of Stacie. Authors in any fandom are invited to write a short fic on demand. The writing challenges will be delivered to each participating author by the highest bidder in their personal auction, which will run September 8-14, 2008 here at The highest bidder gets to deliver the fic challenge to the author they’ve “won,” along with the story’s pairing, the rating, and other pertinent details (within reason and within the author’s stated fandom and limitations - i.e., some authors prefer not to write smut or a certain pairing). The author will be given up to 30 days to finish the fic, beginning with the day that payment is received. The deadline for signing up as an author is Friday, September 5, 2008. There are also some related items that will be made available for auction, too. Details on this event are available on the links below, or you may contact us at with any questions.

Come join us for this fun event as we challenge our favorite authors, entertain our most devoted readers, and raise money for a great cause!

LOST.................jump the shark or bloody brilliant?

I just watched the last two episodes and honestly, I really can't tell. I feel like one of those people trapped in a terrible relationship, yet they are too emotionally invested to see the truth.

My head hurts.

There's an ice cream truck driving around my neighborhood right now. Seriously? An ice cream truck? I haven't seen one of those since I was living at my parent's house and I've NEVER seen one in LA. Wow. Sort of makes me nostalgic. Plus, ice cream trucks always remind me of spring/summer. They're like the groundhog. If you see one, summer can't be too far away!
