Y'all are fantastic. I can't believe how many people have e-mailed me after my post on the fire at the kidlet's school to tell me they'd help out. I love you all.

The kidlet's teacher tells me she had a thousand books in her classroom alone. They're still there, but the soot on them is toxic; there's no telling when or whether she might be able to rescue any of them.

The kids will spend the rest of the year in a building that belongs to a school that closed last year. Kids at one school donated some of their desk supplies; teachers at another one pulled stuff out of their teacher's lounge to decorate the lounge in the replacement school.

A gerbil, several goldfish, and two hermit crabs survived the fire, though, so all is not lost.

My offer of a smutlet in exchange for a donation is still open. As I said to someone in an e-mail, I'm kind of quietly thrilled at the idea of rebuilding the grade-school library through the power of smut.

Early Sunday morning, while the building was empty, a fire started in the kidlet's elementary school. They think it was caused by a mouse chewing on the wiring. Thank God, no one was hurt, but there's $800,000 worth of damage; every room in the building suffered smoke and/or water damage.

This is a struggling public school with an awful lot of low-income and low-education families. Just last year they were forced to spend a bunch of money on safety-related parking-lot redesigns, and they were just at the point where their fund-raising could go for things more directly related to education when this happened.

What do they need? Books. The kidlet's fourth-grade teacher lost a thousand books. The library sustained heavy water and smoke damage. I don't know how many of the books will survive.

They're looking for gently used children's books (grades pre-K through 5) and for gift certificates to help them replace books and other things.

There are a lot of worthy causes looking for money just now, but if this particular reading-related worthy cause tugs at your heartstrings the way it does at mine, here's my offer:

Donate either books or gift certificates (see below for how). Ask me a question regarding one or more of the characters I write. I'll write you a snippet, or possibly more if inspiration strikes.

OK, fine; I was shamelessly hinting for birthday porn and everybody demanded detail. So here's my porn wishlist.

You know, it would be cool if other people did this, and then put the link on their LJ profile. You never know when someone might be looking for hints on what kind of smut to give you.

My birthday is one month from today. I am really very fond of porn, icons, and chocolate. Just thought I'd mention that.

Can't resist [livejournal.com profile] tartanshell's wishlist meme.

And by the way, [livejournal.com profile] plotbunnymuse is keeping a master list of wishlists here, so if you post one, go and add a comment.

"They said --" She was crying almost too hard to speak. "They called me --"

He patted her sympathetically. "Called you something filthy, did they?"

"They said I was --" Sobs kept interrupting her speech. "A m-- a m--"

"A mudblood?"

"A Mary Sue!" she wailed.

In other news, it occurs to me that since I'm not, in fact, a wealthy aristocrat, I should have offered fiction in exchange for art.

So OK. If anybody wants to draw me Draco on a white fur throw wearing nothing but his silver jewelry, or any other Transfig thing that might occur to you, I'll write you some sex.

(Psst, [livejournal.com profile] darthfox -- don't tell them how long it usually takes me to make good on those promises, OK? Or they'll start charging interest at a rate of a hundred words a month, and before I know it I'll be stuck with another epic, and then I'll have to fake my own death and come back with a new pseud with a lot of Ks and Ys in it.)

The Theban Band have done illustrations for Transfigurations! I'm so excited. (They also made me this snappy icon.)

The art is here:

Cover

Sorting feast -- "A Malfoy was out for himself, first, last, and always. It was strangely reassuring to know some things hadn't changed."

Greenhouse scene -- ' "Wait," Malfoy said softly, "don't. I'm all dirty." '

Check it out and send them feedback.

I wish I were a wealthy aristocrat. I'd commission artists to fulfill my Transfig art wishlist. )

My birthday's May 8.

If anyone felt like writing me a happy little story (ideally involving Fraser/RayK, Ray/Ray, Wesley/Gunn, or Lupin or Snape with just about anyone, including each other), I wouldn't fling myself into their path and try to convince them to do productive work instead.

I even write thank-you notes. Ask my mother.

Now I'm going to hide from [livejournal.com profile] darthfox, who also has a birthday coming up and for whom I sort of promised I would try to make Fraser scream.
