Hello everyone! :3 I’m making an art auction with this 5,5″ x 8,5″ original watercolor of Persephone.

  • Bidding starts at 30 USD
  • You can bid until Thursday 13th, 6 PM (PST time).
  • Payment via Paypal: coloricioso@gmail.com
  • This watercolor is very colorful (although right now it’s night so the pictures don’t show it that much ^^”) and is made with a lot of love! ♥

Even if you don’t bid, by reblogging the post you’ll be helping too! I need money for my project of making HadesxPersephone enamel pins, so I’m looking forward for this to work ♥ 

Former friends gets a slice of humiliation.

H and I used to be friends but I grew pretty tired of tiptoeing around his irrational temper. During a board game day he started swearing and abusing me in front of my children because he was losing. I confronted him privately later and he said he didn’t think we should be friends. He’s the sort to guilt people by claiming he’s suicidal, and I know he was trying to get me on the defense, but I’d had enough. I said ‘ok’. That was about two years ago.

We have mutual friend, S, who was also growing tired of H’s bullshit. S would often complain to me about his annoyance with H and we’d laugh about it. He was ready to ditch him as well.

Last night C, another mutual friend, was hosting a charity event. All of us were attending and I knew H would be pulling his usual passive aggressive sulky nonsense when he saw me there, but I was going with a group of old friends and we were having a really great time. S was there with H and a few other friends.

There was a silent auction at this event. I had bids on a few items and whenever I wandered past the table I’d check my bids. I didn’t mind spending the money because I really supported this cause, it’s one that affects me as well but there were others who needed more help. During the night S came to our table to say 'hi’ and he told us H was really sour since he saw us come in.  He also told me H had bid heavily on a fancy kitchen appliance and was determined to get it cheap. He’d also cornered C to find out if his bid would be tax deductible before committing to the donation, because he’s very tactful.

We joked that I should outbid him, but I didn’t want to cause any trouble at C’s event.

Later that night they announced the auctions were closing in 5 minutes. I was at the table checking my bids and seeing what I was leading in. I decided to check out this appliance because my mother is on a widow’s pension and could have used it or resold it. I picked up the clipboard with the bids to have a look. H was the highest bid at a couple hundred bucks. That would be a lot to add to our standing bids.

Then I had an idea.

I picked up a pen and turned my back to the room so no one could see what I was doing. Then I put down the clipboard and pen and turned to go back to my friends. H was already there, four steps away and storming across the dance with a look of fury on his face. Given he’d been sitting at the further corner of a busy pub he must’ve been watching me the whole time I was there and jumped up the moment I turned my back with a pen. He looked ready to throw a fit.

I walked past him without a word and joined my friends. He skulked back past us a moment later after checking the auction and finding out I hadn’t entered a bid. S tells me he didn’t say a word about to anyone. But I know, and he knows, that I made him feel like a fool.

Sorry about he long post, hope you enjoyed.

So I made a very interesting decision that I have made and I will blame @jurassicreptile​ for this, but I won’t :3c .But I will credit him for showing me a Japanese yahoo auction site(which is not too bad) with the many doujinshi on sale.

As for this, I manage to win this auction for a 5-volume set of Zabelei or Lord Raptor x Hsien-Ko  written by Akemi Agawa/ MOSCATO D'ASTI (I really want to find more of this person’s comic). I will say looking into this comic is interesting and I won’t be showing what’s inside of these doujinshi in tumblr. But you can view this in my Discord serve(please message me to join). I hope you all like this rare gem.

As a small bonus:

twelve recommendations for the FTH auction

So in the end, @fandomtrumpshate is running around 700 auctions, which is ABSURD and utterly fantastic and also kind of overwhelming. Of all the things I considered when when I signed on to help organize, it had not occurred to me that there would be so many damn forms to make we would have such an embarrassment of riches that it might make it difficult, as a bidder, to figure out how to bid at all. So I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite creators from Sherlock fandom who are taking part. It isn’t remotely exhaustive – I encourage you to search the Sherlock tag (and, you know, the other 400+ tags) to find other fabulous creators. But here are some amazing people whose work is on offer, and I hope y’all go out and bid these folks up out of my reach, because otherwise I am going to bankrupt myself trying to get work from all of them.

1) @vulgarweed is a fellow FTH organizer, brilliantly funny, utterly fearless as a writer, and one of the best smutsters the world has ever known. (vulgarweed’s auction page)

2) @ancientreader does fantastic character work, and manages to pack a lot of layers into only a few thousand words. (ancientreader’s auction page)

3) @trickybonmot is another writer with a gift for getting a lot of meaning into a fairly short work. clever and complex AND smutty! What’s not to love? (trickybonmot’s auction page)

4) @violsva is offering ACD fic this time around. I don’t read a ton of ACD fic, but I occasionally follow the Sherlock authors I love into ACD fic, and I am always stupidly happy I did. Violsva is one of the best. (violsva’s auction page)

5) @patternofdefiance is a world-building superstar with a great touch for johnlock romance. Also, she is an excellent beta (I speak from experience here.) (patternofdefiance’s auction page)

6) I don’t have to tell you that @pennypaperbrain is a master of thinky kink, so really I’m just here to tell you, in case you didn’t know, that she is participating, zomg. (pennypaperbrain’s auction page)

7) @anarfea has so many gifts as a writer that it’s hard to choose only a few. Her fic will hit your morally complex sweet spots, and teach you things it never occurred to you you didn’t know along the way. Also a really excellent beta who will both think with you and push you where you need to be pushed. (anarfea’s bidding page)

8) @discordantwords produced an AMAZING X-Files fusion for @falltvseasonsherlock that was everything I ever might have wanted out of such a fusion (and I’d been thinking about it for at least a year.) (discordantwords’ auction page)

9) holy shit, you guys, @coloredink will write you a Sherlock fic! She would also write you a Hannibal fic, or Yuri!! on Ice, but THE POINT IS we might get another Sherlock fic from her! You’ll have to outbid the fannibals, though. (coloredink’s auction page)

I’m mostly invested in the fic-writing side of transformative fandom, but let’s be real: you would have to be living under a rock not to know that

10) @consultingsmartarse produces some of the finest damn podcasts in existence. I mean: you know this already, right? Sometimes I wake up in the middle of night and freak out all over again that she has done two of my stories. N.B. She’s signed up as consultingsmartass. (consultingsmartass’s auction page)

and furthermore, I am here to tell you that

11) my super-rad friend @hobbitystmarymorstan aka dee shimare is signed up to do art! Sie will do you some Sherlock, or Star Wars, or LotR. Check it, yo. gorgeous colorwork such as you rarely see. (dee shimare’s auction page)

and finally… there’s me. I am a pretty small-time writer, but, well, I think I do okay. I’m offering a set of 221bs (which is something I particularly dig), a standard prose fic in any of six fandoms (including Sherlock) plus a round of beta-ing. If you dig remixes, that is a strength of mine as a writer. And you guys, I am a kickass beta. (here’s my auction page.)

Go forth and bid! Also, feel free to reblog and add your own recs. If we’re all going to bankrupt ourselves, at least let it be for excellent causes, and in exchange for awesome fanworks!
