gag-reel puppy face

help japan

When I heard about the devastation in Japan, watching the news about it made me physically ill. I've never been to Japan, but I spent three years in college studying Japanese, both the language and the culture/literature, and I can't even put into words how upset I am at the carnage wreaked by the earthquake and tsunami. I have friends who spent extended time in the country and have a network of close acquaintances, who are, thankfully okay, and I'm sure a number of my teachers that I adored are in utter turmoil over making sure that their loved ones are okay.

So, I'm going to try to help out in the best way I know. I've posted two auction offerings at help_japan. My offerings are
Here for fic and Here for podfic. I'm offering a fic that's 20k or higher and a podfic of undetermined length, as long as the author says it's okay! (of course, the podfic can't be excessively long or I'll never finish it!)

I am in the middle of writing two big bangs (though my SPN one is almost done!), so it might take me awhile to get things rolling, between work and traveling for work BUT IT WILL GET DONE AND IN AN APPROPRIATE AMOUNT OF TIME.

I know that I'm not the most well-known (at all!) fic writer or podficcer, but even if you don't want to bid on me, bid on someone! Japan desperately needs the help.

To anyone who has friends/family in Japan, I very much hope that they're okay and surviving.

Hontoo ni arigatou gozaimasu!
