Personal post: more health news
Always Keep Fighting
bt_kady
I'm two weeks out from my hysterectomy, so I had a post op appointment with my doc. He told me that the test results show that I have cancer. Not only (was) it uterine but ovarian as well. With my uterus/ovaries/fallopian tubes gone, they still need to do a biopsy to see if it has spread, He said it looks to be in early stage as yet, so I'm hoping I won't have to worry about it much, but still, there's that scary C word, you know?

What worries me also is that I have no job, no insurance, and lots of medical bills (and the expectation of more) staring me in the face. I need to find funds from somewhere. My question is: if I start up a Gofundme page, do you think there would be anyone who could help me out with donations? If not Gofundme, what other things can you recommend I do?

Here's the link to my Gofundme page... https://www.gofundme.com/kathys-cancer-medical-fund ... Any and all help is appreciated. Love you all!

Sorry...

I know I've been away a lot ths year, but my recent excuse is a valid one. I'm a week and a half out from having a hysterectomy, and recovery hasnt been easy. Those of you who have had one know what I mean. I know I'm being impatient, which I have to stop. I have to give it time and get my rest.

Like the reest of you, I'm thrilled to hear that Jared and Gen are expecting again! I have to admit I hope they have a little girl this time, but something tells me Jared is the father of sons. We'll see.

What have I missed, gang?

...since I've posted anything. I lost internet access at home several months ago, so my time here at LJ has been non-existent until now. Still no internet at home, but this week i've been house/dog-sitting for my sister, so I can get online for now and check in with friends.

Great news about SPN's EW cover! What a cover shoot for the guys and Baby, huh? Yowza!

I am so behind on fic...if any of ya'll have anything J2 to rec me, feel free. I've been rereading a lot of my old favorites that I have saved to my Kindle, so I need a fresh supply. :-)

I was THRILLED to read about Jensen and Danneel's announcement of their upcoming TWINS! JJ is gonna be an awesome big sister!

Check in with me, gang. what have I missed, besides all of you? :blows kisses:

I'm without cable and internet, as well as having a computer on the fritz, so my LJ times will be sparce for the forseable future. It's a pain in the ass to get on from my phone as well, so unless I can use apublic computer, I won't be here for a while. I just wanted to let ya'll know so you don't wonder about me. I hope you're all doing well.

I can finally say...
Jared-OMG!!!
bt_kady
...at the ripe old age of 53, that I'm in love and I have a boyfriend. My Daniel is in the Army, but will be retiring in December and coming home to me. God, please let him be my forever love!

EDITED TO ADD: He turned into another spamming jerkwad. I'm giving up on online dating, for a while. I don't need the stress and heartache.

Here we go again...
Jensen *facepalm*
bt_kady
After being pissed off about how that guy treated me the other day, I decided I'm not letting him stop me from looking for someone. I'm back on the dating site I used before, and currently have a couple guys I'm just getting started on getting to know. I'm limiting it to texting only for now. Self-preservation first. It seems the men like my photos and profile...it remains to be seen if they would still be interested once they meet/see me in person.

Have any of you had experience with the dating online scene? Any helpful advice?

Do I look gullible?
Dean-bullshit
bt_kady
I told ya'll the other day I'd met someone. Yeah, he turned into an asshole. We haven't met in person and have only texted, and he had the balls to ask me to send him money. I don't think so, dickwad.

I never thought I'd be able to say this...
Kermit-OMG!
bt_kady
...but I've met someone, and I think it has the possibility of going somewhere. I met him on a dating site, and from past experience I had my doubts it would work because it never has before. In less than a week I got to messaging with a few guys, and a few sounded interesting, but tonight I started speaking with this one, then we moved to texting, and it felt good. We'll see what, if anything, happens, but I feel hopeful. Wish me luck, gang?

I asked him to be patient with me and give me time, because this is rather new to me, and he said he would. We'll see.

I just created another manip, and I would love to use it for a fic banner if anyone has a fic with older!Jared/younger!Jensen who have a baby together. If you're interested, post a reply below, ok? I think the ages for the guys would be around late 20s-early 30s for Jared, and early-mid 20s for Jensen.

Just curious... (asking spoiler question)

Right Now I'm...

Feeling: Pretty good! I had a therapy session this morning (I see my therapist once a week) and it was a good one.
Wearing: denim capris and one of my J2 AKF shirts
Wishing: my financial situation was better. Being jobless sucks.
Missing: my mom. She's been gone four months.
Thinking: I need to get back to writing. I miss it.
Wondering: how I'm going to be able to pay bills this year until I see if I can get unemployment or disability.
Raving About: J2, as always!
Ranting About: being poor. It's stressful.
Fangirling/Drooling Over: yesterday's J2 and kids Father's day photo that Jensen tweeted.
Thankful For: my brother's support. He's been my rock since our mom died.
Planning: for a trip to Europe this fall. If everything works out, a friend wants to take me to Rome. We'll see.
Looking Forward To: said trip, assuming it happens.
Dreading: the heat of the summer. I loathe hot/humid weather!
Wanting: to get back to my writing. The muse isn't ready to come out play yet, though.
Hoping: my finances improve sooner rather than later.

I claimed a fic for the SPN-J2 BB but haven't heard from my author yet. If my author will contact me asap, I'd love to talk with you and see what you're looking for.

On the personal front, today hasn't been the best of days. It's Mother's Day here in the USA, and since I lost my mom less than three months ago, it's been a rough day. I thnik I'm clinically depressed; I just haven't been diagnosed yet. I need to get something done though because I can't manage this way. I try to keep Jared and his Always Keep Fighting in mind, but sometimes it's easier said than done. I've been dealing with a lot in the past few months: lost my mom, lost my job, dealing with health issues of mine as well as my brother's, and renovations of my apartment. I'm not dealing with it all well.

I found four of my own fic, randomly selected by a bot it seems. I sent them an email, demanding they remove my fic, although that was before I read the very helpful instructions provided in the link above. Maybe I should send them another. OTW is on the case, hopefully that will help shut this shit down.

I'm fucking furious. Assholes making money of fanfic writers' free but very hard labour. Not to mention how it fucks with the whole "fair use" idea. Fuck you, assholes. Fuck you very hard in the ass with a barbed wire.

ETA: They haven't stolen any of mine, but I'm sure they have done so with other fanfic writers we know and love in this and other fandoms. They've stolen several fics by my bestie obsidianromance as well. Let's kick their ass, people.

Where's caring big brother Dean when you want/need him? Oh yeah...with Sammy. I've been under the weather this weekend with a cold, and since I figured I can't have Dean to take care of me, I'd let Sam have him. Just as it should be, I guess.

Happy Easter, gang!

A Twitter friend asked for art of J2 as cowboys, or more specifically, cowboy!Jensen teaching Jared how to horseback ride. This is what I came up with.

I'm not going into details since it's about her and not myself, but prayers for my whole family would be greatly appreciated.

I won't be online as much while all this is going on, but I will check in as I can. Thanks ahead of time for your good thoughts. My mom appreciates it, and I do as well, more than you know. *hugs and love to you all*

Calling out to my fan artist friends out there...
Season9promo
bt_kady
It's been a few years ago, but a few friends and I worked on creating cards for our Winchester Arcana Tarot deck. Since then, a lot of new characters have been introduced on the show, so I'm wondering who would be interested in helping me create a new deck for all the old as well as new characters. I'm not sure yet if my fellow comm mods are still interested, but just in case they aren't, I'm looking for anyone who wasn''t involved in it back then but would like to be now.

I'm also looking for someone with HTML knowledge to help me maintain the old comm as well as a new one if this project gets up and running.

Please, gang, speak up if this sounds like something you'd like to help me with, and you have time for. It's a huge project - I'll warn you about that now. The one person who's interested (and who had this idea in the first place) suggests we shoot for an October 2015 deadline, around the time season 11 would premiere. I think that sounds doable. I just need a lot of help to get this underway. I kow some of the previous artists aren't at LJ anymore, so I'm looking for new artists who have joined the fandom in the last few years. Too, if anyone who arted for us the first time wants to do so again, you're all welcome to jump in again.

Last time, I was sent the finished cards, then I added decorative edging and banners with the name of the particular Tarot cards to give all the cards a continuity. This time I won't do that, but I think there needs to be something to give all the new cards a continuity. I'm looking for suggestions about that as well.

If you're interested, or have any ideas to suggest, feel free to email me. Kadysn at gmail dot com.

Fic illustrations question
Always Keep Fighting
bt_kady
I'm working on a piece of artwork that I think would be a good illustration for a young hooker!Jensen and older client!Jared fic. Do any of you know of one that doesn't have art to go with it? Barring that, would any of you authors want to write a fic with that trope, and let me illustrate it for you? It would have been for good for the Reversebang but I only created it today, so I'm too late for it.

Here's what I have so far...

TeenHookerJensenOlderJared

If you guys have any ideas or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I know I've read fics with this trope, but I can't recall any specifics.

Fandom help for an SPN family member (Cillab42)

bt_kady
cillab42 has posted about her situation on her LJ. You can help raise funds for her by making a direct donation here, participating in the auction, and/or spreading the word among your friends.

The auction started yesterday, November 20, and will run until November 29 (next Saturday). The last date for the auction is not the date by which you need to deliver your work. It's just the last date for people to bid on offers. You can talk to your winner and decide on the details/due date.

Auction page is here.

I've offered artwork, so if you'd like something from me, go take a look at the auction page. Please join us in helping a fellow SPNer.

Silly question, but...
Dean- Awkward
bt_kady
Does anyone know/has Jensen said how he got that scar on his chin? Only thing I've seen is someone asked him and he joked back, "What scar?" I figure I've probably missed a real answer from him.

Anyone? Buehler?

Question... (edited)
Dean- Awkward
bt_kady
If you came upon personal information about Jared, Jensen and/or their families, what would you do with it? Would it depend on what the information was? What is the dividing line for you, on what's sharable and what isn't?

If you decided to share, how widely would you share? Just one person, a few trusted people, or would you share widely online in the fandom?

You're probably wondering why I'm asking. If you want to know, PM me.


EDIT: This post is pretty much moot at this point. I got on LJ this morning and saw where a photo of Jensen's new house was posted, and as it came from the realtor's site, the address was listed, and it hadn't been marked out. This is what my questions referred to, in a way. The home addresses of the guys (as well as their parents and other family members) are all public record and can be found if you look. Having said that, why post the info online? Don't they deserve their privacy? It's one thing to have the information, but to broadcast it?

Jensen and Danni moving to Austin? (edited)

I was told that Jensen and Danni are moving to Austin. Does anyone have more information/photos on this? I've tried Googling for it but my Google-fu isn't working today.

Posing a fanfic question
Bang head
bt_kady
I'm strictly in the SPN/J2 fandom so my question is for that. Does anyone actually read het fic, or is gen fic and slash all anyone wants? I ask because I'm close to finishing writing a teen Sam/OFC fic, and I wonder if I'd be wasting my time posting it here or at AO3 when it's complete. I've been posting it a chapter at a time at ff.net, but I know that site is basically passe these days, which is why I don't get much response there.

Do I even bother? Will any of you be interested in reading it?

Summary: Sam is shy, horny, and still a virgin. He's also smitten with a girl from school. Can he find the courage to make her his, and get rid of his cursed virgin status? Set circa 2000. Sam is aged 16/17. Sam/OFC, Dean, mention of John. NC17 for het teen sex.

Be honest with me, gang. I can take it.
