In case you were wondering...

The Fandom Trumps Hate auction on tumblr raised over $32,000 total, divided among many worthy charities, including:

  • Planned Parenthood: $8,039
  • American Civil Liberties Union: $5,051
  • Southern Poverty Law Center: $3,300.85
  • The Trevor Project: $2,800
  • Standing Rock: $2,311
  • Natural Resources Defense Council: $1,962
  • Rape Incest, and Abuse National Network: $1,429
  • Nature Conservancy: $1,287
  • TransLifeline: $975
  • National Immigrant Justice Center: $908
  • ProPublica: $675
  • Lambda Legal: $600
  • Campaign Zero (Black Lives Matter): $590
  • Border Angels: $571
  • Anti-Defamation League: $491
  • Oxfam America: $467.50
  • RandomActs: $350.50


I don't know how that breaks down by fandom, but the HP auctions I was tracking easily raised over $700 combined. Seems pretty awesome to me :)

They're planning on making this an annual thing, so if you couldn't participate this year, there's always next year!



ETA: There's an AO3 collection set up for all the works that are being produced from these auctions. There are only 23 works there so far, but I expect this will grow into the hundreds in the coming weeks and months as authors and artists complete their projects.

Reminder: Fandom Trumps Hate auctions end Thursday night!

As you probably know already, I'm offering beta services for the Fandom Trumps Hate​ charity auction. Several other lovely LJ people are offering their services for auction too; see the list I posted last week!

Bidding is currently open, but will close at 11:59 EST on Thursday, January 19. (That’s tomorrow night!)

  • Important Note: even though Fandom Trumps Hate is hosted on tumblr, you don't need a tumblr account to bid!

  • Who the auction is supporting: The charity of your choice from the list available on the Fandom Trumps Hate FAQ. Some suggestions: the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), The Anti-Defamation League, Planned Parenthood.

  • Length of Fic: for every $10.00 of the winning bid, I will beta 5,000 words (up to 50K).

  • To Bid:

      Step 1: Check my bidding spreadsheet to find out what the current high bid is. (Note: It may take up to five minutes for a bid to appear.)

      Step 2: Fill out my bidding form with a bid that is higher than the current high bid. If you want to make it harder for someone to outbid you, bid higher! You will NOT be notified if someone outbids you, so please bookmark this page and check frequently. You will only be notified if you are the high bidder after the auctions end.


For more details, see my contributor page, and feel free to ask me any questions!


P.S. In case you missed it, pir8fancier is running a private auction here too.

You don't need to be on tumblr to bid in Fandom Trumps Hate!

Yesterday I posted a list of all the people I knew from the HP fandom on LJ who were participating in the Fandom Trumps Hate charity auction. While Fandom Trumps Hate is hosted on tumblr, I didn't make it clear that you don't need to be on tumblr or have a tumblr account to bid! (thanks to pir8fancier for bringing this to my attention ♥)

So just to clarify, all the bidding takes place using a google form/spreadsheet that's not on tumblr, just linked to from there.

The links you need are found on each participant's contributor page (which I posted a list of links to yesterday). Take my page for example. If you click that link it will take you to a tumblr post with details of the auction I'm listing. There's a lot of verbiage, but the relevant thing is the two links near the bottom of the post where it says step1 and step 2 (copy pasting here for convenience):

    Step 1: Check the bidding spreadsheet to find out what the current high bid is. (Note: It may take up to five minutes for a bid to appear.)

    Step 2: Fill out the seller’s bidding form with a bid that is higher than the current high bid. If you want to make it harder for someone to outbid you, bid higher! You will NOT be notified if someone outbids you, so please bookmark this page and check frequently. You will only be notified if you are the high bidder after the auctions end.


So those are really the only links you need, and they're not associated with tumblr.

Each participant has unique links to their bidding spreadsheet and bidding forms, so you just need to be able to find those by clicking on the contributor pages in yesterday's post.

Let me know if anyone has any further questions. I want to encourage as much participation as possible :)

People participating in Fandom Trumps Hate

There are over 500 people offering services for the Fandom Trumps Hate auction which is awesome, if a little overwhelming! Even just looking through the "fandom: Harry Potter" tag brings up what seems like 100 pages.

But for some of those, the creators have HP as a secondary or tertiary fandom, or say that they don't write Drarry. So I decided to sift through the offerings to find people I knew.

Since I know many of you aren't on tumblr, I've compiled a list of creator names I recognized, in case you'd like to check it out. If I missed anyone or made any mistakes, I'm really sorry, just let me know!

So happy to be in company with so many awesome peeps! Bidding is now open, and will close on January 20th. Hope you check it out and bid - you get to pick the charities you'd like to support!

HD-Erised 2016: Veterans and Newcomers

As I was looking over the anonymous masterlist for this year's hd_erised fest, I was struck by how many veterans of the HD fandom were still creating fanworks for the fest, even as many newcomers are joining for the first time. I think this speaks to how popular HD fandom has been and still remains!

So everyone can see what I mean, I've organized this year's participants into a table sorted by the year they first published an HD fic or artwork, so far as I know*

*I tried really hard to get accurate data by stalking everyone's LJ and AO3 accounts, but I'm just one person and might have missed something, especially if your LJ is flocked or your early works were on a deleted archive somewhere. So if there are mistakes, just let me know and I'll fix them :)
