TRANSFORMATIVE WORK POLICY

Feel free to podfic, illustrate, make banners, translate, write sequels or remix my fics. Feel free to write fic for my art. Do whatever you want. Just link back to the original, okay?

So I'm giving blanket permission to make transformative works of my (solo) transformative works -- you don't have to ask! I would prefer you tell me where you've posted so I can squee about it, though, and thank you very much for choosing to do something with my stuff.

EDIT, taken from [personal profile] teaotter's policy:

Additionally, for podficcers:

If you ever need to change words/omit dialogue tags/add dialogue tags/bend, fold, spindle or punch holes in one of my fics for better podficcing purposes, please do so at will! If you do, please give yourself credit for it, wherever you would normally have notes: "this fic is by [author] with (additions/alterations/ease-of-podfic transformations/contributions/however you want to describe it) by [your name]", or "adapted for podfic by [you] from a work by [author]" or whatever variation works for you.

on tumblr I wanted to go into a long rant/explanation about why I needed to ask for money but I didn't because I was afraid some asshole would try to pick it apart.

but I guess I can kinda explain here. my medicaid has flipped around to a different managed care provider and now I need new doctor authorizations before they will pay for certain things. in the meantime I'm left paying cash. and then there was my regular eye doctor who stopped taking medicaid altogether. so I had to pay for an eye exam* and glasses (at least I was able to order the glasses from zenni so I didn't have to pay a lot). I had to pay for my pain meds this month. I have no idea what's going to happen when the big, expensive med I take comes up in about a week - it's way more than I can pay for out of pocket (the last time I checked, a 30 day supply was $1400). hopefully the doctor will have enough samples of Vraylar to hold me over until the new medicaid managed care provider decides I can have it after all.

we will not even get into the stress I'm having because 'what if they decide not to pay for it?'

I am switching internet providers because the one we have now (CenturyLink) sucks HARD. they have outages all the time, sometimes just for an hour, but sometimes for days at a time. so I'm getting xfinity. I don't have good credit (or any credit, tbh) so I had to put down a deposit for the hardware they sent to get me set up. I haven't switched over yet because I'm waiting on someone to come out here and install something on my house so I can use it. but that was another expense.

my mom's computer died and I got her a new chromebook. she's paying me back but couldn't right away, so that was a little over $200.

we are still paying for the new heat and air unit that we had to replace last summer.

we are still paying for repairs on the house and property because of hurricane Michael. these are things the insurance didn't cover.

I don't qualify for SNAP, so I buy all the groceries with cash.

like, I'm on a fixed income with my SSI. I don't have all this money. I've tried to set up a Patreon in the past but 1. it freaked me out and gave me so much anxiety I couldn't stand it and 2. I hate making any kind of money off fannish activities and it didn't feel right

thanks for reading this.


*I can't just go anywhere. I need to go to familiar places. so going to a new eye doctor who DOES take my medicaid when I've already psyched myself up to go see the familiar one is haaaaaaaaaard. too hard, in this case. my anxiety and agoraphobia suck donkey balls.



TL;DR - I need money and my paypal is anthony.melissa@rocketmail.com

I have had some bad brain days BUT I have also written a bit. I got up yesterday at 4:30am and wrote about 1900 words, and this morning I wrote about 850. These are on two different WIPs though. I wish I could really get into ONE project and stick it out, but that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon.

Day 12

In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

This morning I updated my Fanlore entry. Now I've thought of something I could add to it, but I wasn't thinking of it at the time. I need to add that I have a transformative works statement! I think that's notable.

Anyway, my challenge to you is to

1. Create your own Fanlore entry
or, if you have one
2. Update your entry, or add a notable work.

OR if your entry is up to date

3. If your favorite fanwork doesn't have an entry, create a page for it!

4. and if you've already done all that in the past, create a new entry for a fave fanwork.

Editing a wiki is a little daunting if you've never done it before, but Fanlore has little tutorials and templates to make it easier for you. Look on the left side of the screen for "shortcuts for editors".

If you do it, leave me a note and a link to what you did (if you want).

ahhhh I'm behind on snowflake and everything else. well, I got my comments answered. but my internet was out for over a day. it was awful. :(

Day 8
In your own space, post self-recs for at least three fanworks that you created. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


This shouldn't take long since I already had some ready to go for another thing that didn't happen. These are all things I did in 2018. They are all Peter Hale/Stiles Stilinski (Teen Wolf).

Breath of Life

Summary: Stiles's incubus heritage manifests when he's 16. It should be easy to navigate, especially with the help of the Beacon County Supernatural Center. But Stiles has some anxiety issues. (Thankfully he also has Peter.)

Notes: I wanted to write an incubus story unlike any other, and to do so I gave Stiles some of the same anxiety issues I have. His aren't as severe as mine, but it was still cathartic to write.


Promises

Summary: Peter's courting gift is a second chance for Stiles's sick mother. It won't last forever, but it's precious time they wouldn't have otherwise.

Stiles is a just a kid, but he knows a good deal when he sees one.


Notes: This fic also deals with grief and child neglect, so strap yourself in. The sheriff doesn't shine in this one.


I try to picture me without you but I can't

Summary: Peter sends Stiles back in time to get something he needs. It's not what Stiles thinks.

Notes: I loved writing young!Peter. He's such a cocky little shit, but very sweet once he realizes he's found his mate.

Day 5

In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


1. [community profile] iconthat - one of the icon communities I follow here on DW. It's a fun, low stakes competition.

2. [community profile] fan_flashworks - another fun challenge, this time for all kinds of works. Any fandom, any kind of works, with fun badges you can win.

3. The Steter Network! On Tumblr, Discord, Pillowfort, and DW. This is my main hangout of fandom these days. [community profile] thesteternetwork on DW is new but I hope it picks up. I spend most of my free time in the Discord. The Steter Network is a group of Teen Wolf writers who enjoy the Stiles/Peter pairing. We hang out on discord and encourage/enable each other. I wouldn't write half as much as I do without them. (for access to the discord, send an ask to [tumblr.com profile] steternetwork)

Day 3

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Okay, last time I did this I posted about my favorite canon scene from Teen Wolf, but this time I'm gonna do a different fandom. I'm not really in the 'fandom' for Assassin's Creed: Odysessy, but I've been playing a lot and I have FEELINGS. My favorite part of the game is a cut-scene of Kassandra (my player character) and Brasidas fighting in the Monger's burning warehouse. It made me ship them, and I don't normally ship het couples. Battle couple all the way. The scene is exciting and pretty. :D

Day 1

In your own space, talk about your Happy Place—the things that give you joy, calms you or keeps you sane. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.



1.) Spending time with my kids

My youngest son just turned 17 and is a joy to have conversations with. Sometimes it's frustrating but it's good overall.

2.) Writing

Fanfiction. Not really into original stuff. Been having trouble with this one lately, but I'm hoping the new year will bring the mojo back.

3.) Hanging out with other fans, virtually (or in person, though that doesn't happen anymore)

Especially in the Steter Network discord. But also here on DW!

Today is Meg's 23rd birthday.

I made a cake. It's chocolate with peanut butter frosting. All from scratch because those are the best.

I haven't heard more from my ex yet, so I'm assuming he'll get over his plague soon and bring my boy to me.

Thank you so much for the paypal & ko-fi you guys sent my way, it's going toward me having a good holiday with my family. I don't quite have enough yet to pay for the gas and hotel, but I'm getting there.

OH OH OH

I keep seeing people either new to Dreamwidth or newly returned to DW asking about where to get icons. There are some active icons communities here like [community profile] icons and [community profile] fandom_icons plus some icon challenge communities - [community profile] iconthat for one. BUT...

Leave me a nice pic (please nothing blurry or too small) and I will make you an icon. Or two or three. Happy holidays!


EDIT: you don't have to be in my circle to request icons. If you're seeing this on your Network page, it's fine to leave a comment/pic/request.

ugh

First thing this morning, my ex called to say he's still sick and can't bring Zach.

So I was all sad about not seeing my son for his holiday break.

Now, it looks like my ex is going to bring him, but on Monday, and he's going to drive the whole way here BUT I have to pay for his gas AND a hotel for him to stay in. Because the drive is so long. I can't really afford it, but it's the only way to see my son.

My PayPal address is anthony.melissa AT rocketmail DOT com. I don't expect your help, but I do need a bit now. So if you can help and want to, please do.

Zach is getting here tomorrow, and I have SO MUCH TO DO. My anxiety knows no bounds.

Today I am doing the grocery shopping, which I don't have to do all at once but I do need to do a great majority of it. Which means I need to hurry and make the menu for Christmas Day. Whyyy haven't I done this yet?

At least the gift shopping and wrapping is done.

And I need to clean the bathroom. The floor in there is disgusting. Hair in the corners. Dust. Toilet needs scrubbing. And maybe I can figure out how to fix the handle so I don't need to jiggle it every time I flush.

Save me from the holidays.

I love it when Zach is here, but it adds a whole nother layer of stress.

EDIT: Now my ex says he's sick, and may not be able to drive to drop off Zach at the halfway mark. So Zach might not be coming for the holidays after all. I'm SO STRESSED over this development, and I don't know what's going to happen, and I'm a messsss.

A little early, but I had the chapter out for an edit anyway so when I got done, I decided to post it. Here you go!

Chapter 11!

Title: Highly Unusual
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Pairing: Derek Hale/Peter Hale/Stiles Stilinski
Rating: Explicit
Summary: The life of an omega isn't exactly glamorous. They're taken away from their families when they present, and not allowed back into society until they're safely mated. Stiles just came away from his coming out ball with two potential mates. Legally, he has to choose by the end of the season, or else he'll have to stay in the omega school for another year, until the next season, when all this will start again.

This is a story about what it's like to have your very existence regulated, and what happens when you defy society and fall in love.

Warnings: Uncle/nephew incest as part of the threesome throughout the fic. This chapter has some unwanted grabbing and threats.
Notes: Thanks to people who read this as I was writing it: lostwithoutmyanchor, majoline, syriala, and bunnywest. for the initial comments by twisted_mind that put it on the right path. for encouragement by everyone who heard about it in the steter network. thank you thank you.
AND MANY MANY THANKS to HD-Hale for the amazing art (which you can see in the first chapter on AO3)
