Fight Back Fic

 I signed up for this! 

Fight Back Fic

Hi fandom we’re all angry and tired so let’s mobilize for the FIGHT BACK FIC AUCTION

The what?

A charity fic auction for…every fandom, I guess? Sign up for it. You donate money, someone writes you a fic as a thank-you note, Planned Parenthood gets an extra couple of bucks, everyone’s happy. $1 to a charity of the author’s choice gets you 100 words, capped at 2000 words unless you’d like to figure something out together. 

Twenty bucks and two thousand words aren’t much - unless there are lots of you.

I’ve been wondering what’s up with all the DDoS attacks LJ has been receiving lately. Signal boosting [info]ingridmatthews:



Just in case anyone thinks LJ's downtime is just TPTB being incompetant, read this:


LiveJournal, Russia's blogging platform of choice, is sustaining biggest cyberattack attack in its history. Bloggers say the Kremlin wants to crack down on political discussion.


"LiveJournal, Russia’s most popular blogging platform, has been under a massive DDoS attack for the past few days. The attack has effectively wiped out Russia’s main refuge for unbridled political discussion, a hugely lively and extensive domain frequented by politicians, opposition activists and social commentators alike...


“The reason for attack is more than clear in this case — someone wants LiveJournal to disappear as a platform,” Ilya Dronov, development director at SUP, wrote in a post on his LiveJournal blog earlier this week. He said the hackers were hoping to push bloggers from LJ to social networks where “it's easier to fight individual users.”"
