The next two days

Are Alternate Universe days at Send A Writer to Con!Athon

Slash and Firefly Days have been an *unbelieveable* success ($300!!!!!!!!!), and we are now past 4 onto 5 writers to con with our fundraising. This whole project has exceeded my wildest dreams. I always knew that this community was a generous, wonderful one, but I just had no idea how generous and how wonderful.

AU, Angst, Scary, and Happy days are yet to come, and if we keep up this pace, I've got real reason to hope that we'll be able to provide at least *some* help to every writer on the scholarship list. That's all to the credit of you guys. Thank you from the bottom of my heart

(Slash and Firely thanks to go out on Saturday -- I'm bogged down in auction doings tonight/tomorrow afternoon, and still have a few pairings to research to have a complete list!)

p.s. -- keep spreading the word -- it's *working*!

p.p.s. -- If you've got a 'must have' fic or art site for human fantasy, crossover, or traditional wild AUs, shoot Mel an email at dettiot at yahoo dot com!

I've been kinda busy and lost track of this stuff. Whatever happened with the auction thingy? Is this what replaced it? Did you still need ppl to write "thank you" fics or auction fics? Sorry I am so unorganized right now.

Heh. And I am obviously also v. unorganized, since I'm just now replying to this, and you've already sent your stuff...

Sigh.

If the world would just stop turning for a couple days, I could catch up!

Everybody rocks! (wait...that's wrong, I keep hearing that Simply Red song...totally bad vibe, totally)

Actually, we may have an issue today. Paypal seems to be having some serious issues with availability and uptime. Our count may be unnaturally low if folks try to donate and are unable because the servers are down...

We'll talk about whether we want to do another round of AU this week on concom.
