Within Our Reach, by starfish422

So I finally, FINALLY, got my Fandom Gives Back piece finished and sent to BeCullen and Melooza, the lovely, generous and patient women whose donation commissioned it. :)  After they read it, they graciously agreed to allow me to share it.  As you may know, it's a Spork/Kirk slash fic based in the Star Trek reboot movie.

It's now posted on FFn and on Archive of Our Own, as well as on the Kirk/Spock Fanfiction Archive. If I ever figure out how to post to LJ, it'll be on there too. :)

Jack and Jacey meet...

...and in Over The Top, it happens today! Edward and Jasper's wedding took place October 23, 2010, and as you know, Jack met Jacey the night before their wedding, at the club in Austin.

When Jacey was just a boy in a club...

and Jack was just a lonely stockbroker...

...there was this. And it was today.

Checking in

Hi. :) I know it's been a few weeks since I posted. I have been working diligently on my Spork fic and it is this close to being finished. Actually, I've promised my girls BeCullen and Melooza that they will have it on Saturday night! So then I'll go back to working on DD. :)

I know I've been just horrible about Jacey Thursday and Saturday Jackspiration. There have been so many serious things taking place in the news recently that it's made me feel almost guilty, somehow, to dedicate blog space to vapid stuff like ogling guys. At the same time, I know we have to have fun and let off steam from time to time as well.

On that note, a verrrry lovely behind-the-scenes video of the recent Details photo shoot that put Chris Fine Pine on the cover. Thanks to @creampuffsteph for sending this along. :)

And there's this.
Even he can't believe how big it is.

Wear Purple on October 20 for Spirit Day

I will be joining with thousands of others across North America on Wednesday October 20, wearing purple in memory of LGBT teens who have taken their own lives due to bullying. You can show support by wearing purple and by adding a special purple NOH8 twibbon to your Twitter profile. Also, colour your twitter and Facebook pictures purple for the day.

You can also help make sure that this movement doesn't become a simple one-off thing, that gets forgotten after the fervor dies down. Let's let this become a galvanizing moment in the gay rights movement. I believe it's particlarly important for straight allies to use the privilege inherent in heterosexuality to be vocal and visible in our support of young LGBT men and women.

Hate is easy. Love takes courage.

Maxwell Zagorski on One Life to Live

This is mostly unrelated to Deep Dish, except that it features Maxwell Zagorski, who is my model for the character of Mike.

He is just as adorable when he talks as he is in pictures. YUM.

(I run Mozilla Firefox and I had to reload the page in Internet Explorer to see the video - your mileage may vary)

Forever Young, by dellaterra

It has been ages since I've recommended a story on my blog, but when I read the draft of this one, I told the author right away that I wanted to rec it when she was ready.

You may recognize dellaterra's name because I recently posted If 6 Was 9. She is the bidder who commissioned that story over a year ago. Even before the Support Stacie auction, but especially since then, I've had the pleasure of getting to know her better. She is simply an all-around awesome person. :)

Forever Young was originally posted for the Love Lost contest - an anonymous contest, so although I pre-read the story and made one or two suggestions, I couldn't recommend it until she reposted it under her own account. She has done so now, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did. She surprised me several times throughout the story - not the least of which was how much I enjoyed a story that focuses on Emmett.

Forever Young: When Emmett and Rosalie take a break from the Cullens, they learn that there's more than one way to become immortal. AU pre-Twilight, rated M for the Love Lost contest with M/M slash and more.
