0010 - Further on the subject of fandom raising money via soliciting donations in return for fanworks -- for my own reasons, I don't participate by offering my works or donating in exchange for someone else's; I just donate privately. I see people talking about the fics/art they received in exchange for donating, and I also see people lamenting their lack of time and feeling guilty for not yet having finished the stories or art they had agreed to do in exchange for donations. One thing I haven't seen was the scenario where someone wins a bid, donates, and the author/artist doesn't deliver. After my "IT'S NOT BUYING OR SELLING, FFS" post from the other day, someone contacted me privately and asked if I could do a poll about that kind of a situation. Which I will in a moment, but I have a few thinky thoughts first (if you don't want to read those, the next cut is the poll).
( my thinky thoughts let me show you themCollapse )

If you have additional thoughts, please feel free to share them -- I dislike screening comments, but you're welcome to PM me if you're uncomfortable commenting in public.
0100 - On the subject of Target 230, not cutting as none of this is a spoiler: RYOHEI IS EXTREMELY AWESOME, AND YAMAMOTO/GOKUDERA ARE EXTREMELY GAY FOR EACH OTHER. THAT'S ALL ANYONE NEEDS TO KNOW. GOD, I LOVE THIS SERIES. I WOULD TOTALLY LIVE IN IT IF SOMEONE LET ME. ;_;
0101 - My currently playing song has been making me randomly burst into tears all day, and yet I can't stop looping it. I love/hate nostalgia so much. :|
