Paula Danziger was a fat kid who didn’t get along with her dad, and she drew on that in her novels, but she also wrote about issues that weren’t getting as much attention then, like divorce, protesting unfairness locally and politically, kids’ rights, being biracial, sex (at least thinking about it), and dating a younger boy. After several years of writing YA, Paula switched to middle grade and chapter books, where she created her most famous character, Amber Brown (who is not a crayon). Amber’s image is etched on Paula’s tombstone; she died very young (53) of a heart attack in 2004. By not-so-remarkable coincidence, she is buried in the Artists’ Cemetery in Woodstock, the place where I spent many, many hours as an angsty teenager.

So where to start with her books? First, a caveat: I recommend going in with the expectation that her YA is much more like today’s MG, and that’s okay.

Imagine the Avengers getting hit with some sort of spell that makes them revert to their first language

and everyone expects to be unable to understand Natasha’s Russian or Thor’s Norse (Allspeak is great but it isn’t his first language according to the spell)

but then Steve starts spouting Gaelic, because he grew up speaking English in public but his immigrant mother taught him her own language first

Tony speaks either Spanish or Italian, because that’s what his first nannies spoke

and the spell considers ASL a language just as much as any spoken language, so Clint is just signing and making faces at people

and Bruce is just very confused (“Why do you expect me to be speaking a different language? I’m from Ohio.”)

The Vision flying around screaming “ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ONE ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ONE ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ONE ZERO ZERO ZERO ZERO ONE”

Doug Jones. The name doesn’t ring a bell, does it? Probably not. But I’m here to tell you that this bitch is fabulous.

He started out as a mime and a professional contortionist. He got into acting and has acted in over 25 movies and numerous television shows. Still doesn’t ring any bells? Probably because Doug’s gig is characters and crazy ass costumes and shit. 

Here’s a picture of him:

Still not look too familiar? Well, maybe you saw Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer?

Doug Jones.

Or, are you a Buffy fan? Remember the episode “Hush”?

Look familiar now? He’s the one in the front.

Did you like the movie Pan’s Labyrinth?

Doug Jones.

Doug Jones.

Did you like the Hellboy movies?

Doug Jones.

Doug Jones.

Doug Mother Fucking Jones.

Or, hey! Were you born in the 90’s? Remember the movie Hocus Pocus that would play on Disney Channel every halloween? Remember this guy?:

Yup. Doug Jones.

Still not convinced of how badass this guy is? Here’s some awesome for you.

It took him 5 hours to get into the Pale Man costume in Pan’s Labyrinth, and, once in it, he could only just slightly see out of the nose holes, but he was mostly blind.

And the costume for Fauno himself? Well, he could only just barely see out of the nose holes in that one, too. The actual head part was filled with mechanics that made the eyebrows and ears move. And those mechanics were so loud that he couldn’t hear while inside of it, so he had to memorize Ofelia’s lines as well as his own so that he could say them in his head to know when to talk. Oh, and he doesn’t actually speak any Spanish at all, so he was memorizing both his, and someone else’s lines in a language he couldn’t speak.

Doug Mother Fucking Jones.

Werk. 

This is once more relevant since Doug Jones is at it again– he’s gonna be the hot fish man in Del Toro’s The Shape of Water.

Because you can never blog Dougie enough. 

His ‘breakout’ was the MacTonight commercials (most of you are probably to young to remember those) as Moonhead 

And c’mon kiddies, don’t you know who is playing the Thin Clown in ‘Batman Returns?’ Great speech, Oswald…

In Del Toro’s Crimson Peak, he played both of the other ghosts.

And like the previously mentioned films, he shot this sequence with limited sight due to the prosthetics. Look at that. 

Face it, you’ve seen him everywhere and probably didn’t realize it. Let’s give it up for The Dougie. 

I think the worst part is Doug Jones like almost never get’s credited with other actors, he’s almost always credited further down as a stunt man or something. In ‘The Shape of Water’ trailers his name isn’t with the other actors even though he’s literally a main character :| He’s not just a dude in a rubber suit! He’s a legit talented actor capable of doing things a lot of other actors can’t do.

Any Star Trek fans out there? 

Doug Jones

Anyone else watch Falling Skies, aka Hot Scruffy Doctor Carter From ER Saves The World? 

Doug. Motherfucking. Jones.

Auction Procedures

[personal profile] hansbekhart posting in [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico
Hi everyone! Thank you so much for participating in the Fandom Loves Puerto Rico fundraiser - whether you're a creator, bidder, or have helped spread the word on social media! (or all three!) I wanted to go over some nitty gritty details with everyone.

Sign Ups Ending
The sign up sheet will be open until 3pm EST, Sunday October 15th. At this point the sign up post and Buy It Now! pages will be set to private, so that no new comments can be added. All comments or questions should be redirected to the Master Post.

This is to give me enough time to get all auction items recorded, and over to new pages. I'll be moving each auction item to its own thread, to ensure there's no confusion over multiple items being bid (for example, if a creator has offered "1 fic x 5,000 words" and "3 fics x 500 words" then they will have two auction items (i.e. comment threads).


Auction Opening & Closing
The auction will go live at 9am EST, Tuesday October 17th. An indexed list of creators will be posted, similar to how the sign up offerings were listed. There will also be a master list of creators provided, so you can go directly to the person you want to bid on, if you already know. All offerings will be grouped together on the auction post; the link will go to the first item, and you can scroll down to find their other items.

The auction will continue until 6pm EST, Monday October 23rd. At that time, the auction posts will be screened to private to bring all bidding to a close. The posts will unscreened after 1-2 hours. At that point, the winning bidders will start to receive a reply to their posts informing them that their bid has won, and further instructions. It will take up to a few days to go through and notify all winners; you're welcome to come back to the post to see if you've won, but please do not comment any further on any comment thread unless you are the creator.

The notification comment will contain the creator contact information that was been provided to me (either on the sign up sheet or via direct message on DW/tumblr). If you provided an email address, we will put spaces in the address to make it less recognizable (i.e. hansbekhart at gmail dot com) but if you're not comfortable with this measure please provide an alternate way for your bidders to contact you.

If the auction item has more than one of the same item (i.e. 3 x pencil sketches) and your bid is one of the highest 3, you've won. For posts with multiple items, but more identical bids than number of items, preference will be given to the earlier bids.

Proof of donation to ConPRmetidos (a receipt or screencap of receipt) must be supplied directly to the creator within THREE WEEKS of the auction close, or by November 7th. Do not post proof of donation directly to the community, or anywhere public. We recommend that you block out any identifying information on the information you send to your creator, as well. Email hacks happen all the time these days, and you don't want any more private financial information out in the world than necessary.

It is the responsibility of the bidder to get in contact with the creator, and provide donation proof to them. The Fandom Loves Puerto Rico mods (which is mostly just me, guys) will not chase down anyone once we've notified you that you've won an auctioned item.

Creators should come back to the relevant auction thread and update with donation information. They can also notify me of the donation via tumblr messenger or my askbox. This is so I can keep track of the total amount raised.

We will be following up with all creators that haven't confirmed donation around November 7th. If they haven't received their proof of donation, the runner up of the auctioned item will be contacted to see if they would like a chance to make a donation in the amount of their last bid, to receive the item.

The fundraiser will not be establishing a deadline for creators to finish their items. All estimated delivery/posting dates must be worked out between the bidder and creator. The fundraiser will also not be involved in any shipping/handling of physical goods; all details as to who covers shipping must be worked out between the bidder and creator.

If the bidder approves, please post your creations to the AO3 Fandom Loves Puerto Rico collection. If you are posting a link to your item on tumblr, you can send it directly to me (hansbekhart) and I'll reblog.


Buy It Now! Event
The Buy It Now! Event will not be reposted; the event will go live on the existing page at 9am EST, October 18th, and run until 6pm EST, October 19th, or until we run out of items. First come, first served! You have the same three weeks to provide proof of donation.


Etc.
Please ask any other questions down below, and if you can, please be patient with me and this community over the next two weeks. I'll answer questions as quickly as I can, but I'll be traveling and otherwise occupied on certain days; on those days I'll have a friend step in for me, but if you don't hear back from anyone quickly, please be patient.

In case anyone wants some perspective on how utterly random triggers can be. I haven’t lived in a house with a garage door in four-ish years. Right now at this moment, I honestly can’t recall what they sound like, except something metallic moving and rather clanky.

There was one on tv. I wasn’t even paying attention to it, I had my headphones on and was actively trying to tune the show out. My ears picked up on the sound of the garage door, and a jolt of adrenaline shot through my body as I grabbed my laptop and moved to get out of my seat and run to my room.

I realized what happened after about two seconds.

The sound is gone from my ears, but my heart is still racing and I’m waiting for the door to the house to open, to hear the jingling of my mother’s keys and her footsteps moving through the house. My muscles are still tense and I’m fighting the urge to run to my room and stick a board in front of the door.

For years, the sound of a garage door was my warning to pack up what I was doing quickly and retreat to my room if I was out of it.

I can’t remember the sound of the garage door right now, but I can’t tell my brain to stop trying to react to it.

This can be reblogged, if anyone was wondering. I wrote up this post with the intention that hopefully people who read it and didn’t really get triggers would understand a bit.

Have you ever tried to cast the perfect person for your character of color only to see the same couple of face claims over and over again? Well I have a solution for you!

Face Claim Diversity Presents: The Face Claims of Color Directory!

Face Claim Diversity is brand spanking new, fresh off the lot, state-of-the-art blog dedicated to providing resources just for face claims of color. For the past few months, I’ve been working on the directory and the themes and I’m ready to show-case it! 

The directory is easy to use, features tons of people of color (though it’s still very much a work-in-progress!), has plenty of options to narrow down your search, and has a guide in case you need help. I’ve tried to find lesser-known models, actors, and musicians to feature in the directory, though there still are some familiar faces. When you hover over the pictures, more information will show up.

As time goes on, I will add to the directory. But, since I am in school full-time and work, much of my time is taken up. To make things go faster for me, submit a face claim for me to add if you’d like! Also, if you’re interested, please consider rating the blog so I can make it the best it can be. You can also be a part of this project by sending me a message to apply to be a mod!

Please reblog this post if you’d like and to spread awareness! I’d appreciate it!

The directory can be found here!

Drumroll please, for your authors!!

Fandoms are listed alphabetically! Creators are listed alphabetically by their AO3 name, if applicable. Tumblr or other social media names are included in parenthesis, if substantially different. Please take the opportunity to get in touch with any creator you're interested in bidding on, to ask questions before the auction begins!

This list is long, so please CTL+F if you're looking for a particular creator, or refer to to the master list. Please note this list DOES NOT include items on the Buy It Now! event, please check there separately.

I'm so excited about all of this, tbh. )
