I NEED YOU TO ALL READ THIS PLEASE

iamsupernaturalsbitch:

Most of you know who electricmonk333 is. She’s been a member of the SPN family for a long time and makes some amazing edits for us all.

Most of you also know the story of what happened to her just days after DCCon. If not, her post is here

Her family have put together a fundraiser for her. Here is a summary:

On May 7, 2014, Shaefali’s life was changed forever. She was visiting New Orleans with a friend, when she suddenly became very ill. She was rushed to the Tulane Medical Center and was diagnosed as having a rare condition known as Toxic Shock Syndrome triggered by the common strep A bacteria.

As a result of the pressors used to save her life, she lost blood flow to her extremities and gangrene set in. The doctors had to amputate part of her left arm, all the fingers save half a thumb on her right hand, and part of her legs.

Although Shaefali has health insurance, there are a lot of additional expenses, including the retrofit of her home to accommodate her injuries. Insurance covers only very basic prosthetics. Due to the extent of her injuries to every one of her extremities, more advanced prosthetics are necessary.

Helping Hands: Shaefali’s Prosthetics Fund

She has a 4 year old daughter I’d really like to help make sure she gets to hold again.

If you can’t afford to donate that’s fine, you could just go send her a lovely message. Please signal boost this if you would.

Bram Caldwell has been working his father’s freight and mail business for six years. When he’s given a three-day stage route of his own, he’s ready for the responsibility. But the open road is dangerous, and when bandits surround the stagecoach and kill his hired gunman, Bram knows he has no way out.
Marshall Maddox isn’t here to play the hero. He’s been tracking this band of brigands for days. Still, something about Bram Caldwell makes him want to stick around after the shooting has ended. Marshall’s intentions aren’t exactly noble, but for Bram Caldwell maybe that’s just fine.

Please let me know if you are interested!
Thanks for looking

My sis Lettie is really fast and really reliable! AND HER WORK IS GORGEOUS obviously, (and she’s also drawn me Teen Wolf art before despite never having seen it) so check out her work and maybe grab a commission?

More tags 4chan users are spamming

PLEASE DON’T GO INTO THESE TAGS!

I went in to see how bad it was, and it’s terrifying! So please, don’t go in there. Stay out of them and be safe!

PLEASE BOOST

if my understanding is correct, folx from 4chan are spamming these tags with irl gore images and other extremely triggering content, so be aware and avoid them as needed friends.

Okay, gang, here’s my understanding of the situation—

Some 4chan users have decided to load up various popular tumblr tags with gorey, gruesome, triggering, and all around terrible imagery and things. This is apparently to get back at some tumblr users who attempted to “invade” 4chan. Here’s another post with more info and other tags to avoid.

So, basically, keep out of the popular tags for awhile, folks. And maybe just avoid searching through the tags, in general. 

Spread the word. Even if you don’t have triggers (or don’t think you do) I suggest avoiding the searches and also alerting your followers and friends for their benefit as well.

Hey so I'm out of the loop apparently but what has that andythanfiction person done???

werefoxstiles:

oh hey, it’s fine! you’re not out of the loop. i was not aware of this person’s existence until about an hour ago, but he’s trying to get into the teen wolf fandom now, and guys, we can’t let this happen.

you can read many, many posts about the things that he has done, but essentially he has been involved in shady cult shit since the lord of the rings fandom. it’s kind of scary to imagine what he could do in the teen wolf fandom since it is much smaller than the ones he was previously a part of and the people in the fandom tend to be much younger.

here is one post about him that you can read.

as of right now, he is following people and messaging them to let them know that he was recommended their blogs. if you get a message from andythanfiction, ignore it. please do not engage. this guy is bad news. it won’t just affect our fandom, but it could affect the cast as well. you can go back and read about his lotr fandom days.

This is a message to the whole Teen Wolf Fandom: If you get this message, please do not engage. Block this person and stay away from them. And most importantly, warn others. They are a Cult Leader known from other fandoms such as LoTR and SPN. And apparently they’ve started to message TW blogs. 
Please be extremely careful, this person is dangerous. Some links to understand what I’m talking about:
lol-meme - people warning about Andy messaging TW blogs.
FanLorepage on him.
ProtectYourFanMily - This blog was made to warn others about what he’s done.
1purp0se - Summary of what he’s done with links.
kumquatwriter- Post by his ex-girlfriend. She was also warned about Andy messaging TW blogs.
Aja Romano talks about Andy. Lots of links and information.
Adistantsoil on what he’s done. Super useful link.
Failfandomanonwiki post - shorter version.
We need to warn as many people as possible. After reading what this person has done to other fandoms, I don’t want him hurting any of my friends or anyone else in the TW fandom. I see some of my mutuals have received his message and in some cases replied to him already. Please stay away!! Be careful!! I don’t usually get involved in things like this but I’m honestly worried about this person hurting our fandom.
Please, reblog and spread the word as much as you can!

Guys pleas please be careful!!! Spread this to as many people as possible and warn your friends. Do not engage under any circumstances!!
Please stay safe and come talk to me or any one you know you can trust if you need any help!!

Hey guys!

A website called ‘TeeSpring’ took my Beacon Hills lacrosse logo design and is using it to make/sell “limited edition” hoodies of their own. I contacted them and asked them to take it down, but they refused. 

There’s not much else I can do about this aside from ask people not to support them. I know in the big picture it’s not a huge deal, but it’s still incredibly disheartening to find someone taking something that I worked and continue to work very hard on to provide for people away from me like this. 

Obviously my hoodies are not, and have never been “limited edition”. I’m 100% in support of anyone who wants to create and produce their own BH lacrosse designs - There’s no shortage of creativity in this fandom and iterations of the BH lacrosse logo exist all over the place and are wonderful! So, instead of taking someone else’s interpretation, or supporting a company who is, please consider producing your own! 

Please, please, do not support websites like TeeSpring. I don’t know who uploaded the design, or why, but I do know that they didn’t make it. I’m really, really disheartened by this. 

:( Thanks guys.

Hey, everyone. So this is really, really important. Especially people in the TACOMA, SEATTLE AREA.
Early this morning (Sat. June 21) around 3:00 AM my husband saw somebody jump our backyard fence and snatch our 15 week old puppy, Fennris. Everything happened so fast, and it was completely unexpected so by the time we went after them, they had already gone.
The puppy is about 15 weeks old, an Alaskan Klee Kai (miniature husky). He weighs around 6-7 lbs and his coat is white/gray/black and he has bright blue eyes. He is wearing a blue collar with a nametag on it that reads “Fennris”.
We believe somebody grabbed the puppy, got into a car and drove away.
Please, please, please anyone in the Tacoma, WA area keep an eye out and if you see anything at all or hear anything PLEASE contact me right away.
If you don’t live in the Tacoma, WA area I would greatly appreciate it if you could signal boost this to your followers.
Fennris is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet, and he’s young and he’s scared. He’s not just a pet, he’s a family member. Please help us find our puppy.
We are offering a $500 reward for his safe and unharmed return.

Yo signal boost this because A) These are the kids that run the Night Owl and B) fuck dog thieves.

Signal boost because neighbors and what kind of sick fuck steals someone’s pup?!

Thank you guys so much for the support.

I think some of my followers live in or around Seattle and Tacoma, as well as myself, so please help out!

Dear friends ,

On Sunday night 17 transwomen were arrested in Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia at a local wedding function. 16 of them were fined RM 950 (roughly $297) and sentence to Sungai Udang prison for 7 days at the Lower Syariah Court in Bahau yesterday. If they fail to pay the fine within 7 days, they will be further imprisoned for 6 months. One of them is minor, so she was released. However, she will have to ‘report’ to the Jabatan Agama (Religious Department) every month for the next one year.

As none of them have never been arrested under this law before, they panicked and pleaded guilty. Most of them are ‘mak andam’ (wedding planners) and they are worried that this will affect their reputation and income.

We managed to get a syariah lawyer to reduce the sentence. We have been asked by the lawyer to prepare RM 1,500 (roughly $469) for each person. Apparently, it is a common practice for the court to ask for more money from the detainees who appeal their sentences. In order for the girls to escape the prison sentence, they may have to pay RM 1,500 each.

As much as possible, we do not want the girls to be imprisoned. As their identification card says male, they will be sentenced to a male prison, and treated as a male person - head will be shaved, no hormones for the next 7 days. The psychological impact is very high.

Unfortunately, Justice for Sisters does not have the funds to financially support them. But reality is we need to prepare RM 24,000 (roughly $7,495) for all of them in a few hours. If you would like to donate please kindly email us at justiceforsisters@gmail.com

Donations in any amount will be a great help.

Guys, we gotta help them. They were taken into custody because they were trans. They didn’t do anything wrong. We need to get them out! 

Paypal donations: pp.justiceforsisters@gmail.com

Are you an LGBT creator who could use some money to help you self-publish your comic? Then you might want to check out Prism Comics’s Queer Press Grant, now open for submissions!

Prism Comics offers an annual financial grant to help aspiring LGBT comics creators publish and promote their comics. The Queer Press Grant is funded by donations from readers, established creators with the desire to help those just starting out, and fans who want to see more LGBT stories get published.
“It’s an exciting time for LGBT comics creators.” says Ted Abenheim, president of Prism Comics. “Every day there are new artists and writers creating comics which present the wide diversity of LGBT experience. Great works of serious literary merit, but although the comics industry has begun to embrace LGBT comics, it is still difficult and expensive for independent and aspiring comics creators to get their comics into the hands of readers. The Queer Press Grant helps self-publishing LGBT comics creators accomplish this goal.”

Past winners include Megan Rose Gedris for “YU+ME:dream”, Pam Harrison for “House of Muses”, Tana Ford for “Duck”, Christine Smith for “The Princess”, Blue Deliquanti for “O Human Star”, and Hazel Newlevant for “If This Be Sin”
Go to the Queer Press Grant page for instructions on how to apply. The deadline for proposals is Monday, September 1, 2014. The grant will be awarded at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco October 4-5, 2014.
Prism will also be exhibiting at San Diego Comic Con next month, conducting portfolio reviews, presenting panels, and hosting creator signings.

This helped me out a lot during a turning point in my life! You should definitely all give it a shot!

The extinct Tasmanian tiger

i cant believe that we allowed an animal which was alive so recently that we have videos of it to go extinct

In a way you’d think that in these modern times we wouldn’t possibly let an animal go extinct but this is a very dangerous way of thinking - and is exactly why we may find species are to become extinct in the near future. For example a tiger like the Sumatran is said to become extinct by just next year, but people will not act significantly enough because they don’t believe that we would let something like that happen.

But in reality, there are already so many animals that are extinct from the wild, like the giant tortoise or species of deer, and so many heading to extinction like the Amur Leopard, where only 45 are said to remain, and the Javan Rhino, where there are no more than 50 and none in captivity. 

and lets not forget the Northern White Rhino, where literally 4 remain.

It is so important to act while they are still with us.

THANK YOU ^^^

The Baiji river dolphin is another recently endangered (or considered so) species as of 2006. :(  There are a ton of conservation efforts that just don’t have the support they need, be it monetary or governmental.

And to add to the OP’s post here is a link to a video with more Thylacine/Tasmanian Tiger footage.
