From United We Dream, info@unitedwedream.org:
The Dream Act of 2017 has been introduced in the Senate to protect DACA recipients. It has four sponsors: Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). United We Dream asks for peole to telephone their Attorney General. The number they give is (832) 610-3896.

Their suggested message is "I am calling to ask the Attorney General to come out publicly to defend the DACA program. This program has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth across the country and it must be protected. I expect my attorney general to support the immigrant community and protect DACA."

The dry Nevada desert town of Las Vegas can be deadly if you're not careful. The mean streets of Vegas are flashy, brashy, and full of all the wrong characters. I know this loud city too well. My office overlooks the Sands hotel and my business is murder. I'm Frank. Frank Dawson, Private Detective. I cover this beat, from one end of the strip to the other, and everything in between. Usually, I do it while trying to avoid my buddy old pal Monty. Lieutenant Tony Monticello that is. I call him Monty, because it annoys him. Much like he annoys me. There, see, we annoy each other. Life is beautiful.

Right now, I need to go see a guy about a murder....

If you enjoy a story, please consider commenting and letting the author know.

The Senate Trumpcare bill is dead!

Four Republican senators have come out against the Senate's ACA replacement bill.

(Of course, McConnell is now moving to repeal with no replacement, so the fight's not over yet. Keep calling!)

But I have to celebrate this moment. If someone had told me in January that we'd get this far, I wouldn't have believed it! With luck, they'll find out that the straight repeal is just as unworkable as they thought it would be in February when they decided against it. And either way, we've made them spend six months on internal backstabbing, badmouthing, and time wasting that they can't get back, and a lot of ill will generated within the Republican caucus that won't be forgiven without a lot of effort.

{Star Wars, Shaak Ti}

sharpest_asp: Shaak Ti from the Force Unleashed, looking to the side (Star Wars: Shaak Ti)
[personal profile] sharpest_asp posting in [community profile] 15woes
Title: Weathered Courtship
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Merfilly | [personal profile] sharpest_asp
Fandom: Star Wars
Character: Shaak Ti
Table-Prompt: Cancer - Torrential Downpour
Warnings: None
Title: Let us Cling Together
Fandom: Gemfire
Character: Erin/Gweyn
Length: 200 apiece
Rating: T
Summary: Erin and Gweyn's alliance came a little too late but they're determined to make it work. And are not plotting against each other, honest. Part of my obsession for writing postgame fics for characters who ended up in exile in my headcanon (i.e. virtually everyone but Terian).

Every picture shows two characters.
Chose one image.
This time you can't combine the pictures, but of course, you can play with as many pictures as you want.

Your mission is to write two drabbles (exactly 100 words), x-fills are okay (200 words, 300 words, etc.) but both ficlets should be the same length.

Drabble one should be written through the eyes of character A; drabble two describes the same situation through the eyes of character B.

As ever you can replace the characters on the images with any other character of your choice (male or female) but try to stay as close as possible to the situation shown in the picture.



Please visit the FAQ for more information.

We also have an AO3 Collection. Feel free to add your work there, too. But please post it first to this community, thanks.


Good luck and have fun!
