Look at this attractive title!!
Okay so, here’s the deal. I’ve never made a post like this before, and it’s more or less the last straw. Mainly because i am sick of feeling powerless in this situation and i want to do everything I can to help. It sickens me that we live in a world where I even have to do this at all, but here goes.
Long story short, my best friend Darren, who is one of the sweetest people i have ever been fortunate to know, is stuck in the middle of nowhere with a huge need for a car and medical aid. He needs to get a job to be able to pay for the medical attention and therapy he needs for untreated depression, GID and other issues, and not to mention a better quality in life as well as an education.
He is a long-term sufferer of mental illness which have gone mostly untreated due to lack of money, and he was kicked out and disowned by his parents when he came out as trans after his mother passed away. He moved in together with his fiancée Shane (who was my soulmate and partnerfriend) but they were soon evicted when Shane lost his job due to being trans because they couldn’t pay the rent (as well as being harassed by homophobic and transphobic people)
Forced to be homeless for a few months two years ago, they finally had no other option but to move back in with Shane’s mother who was highly abusive.
This household lies in the middle of nowhere in the rural south with no cities nearby and a terrible landlord. There are no means of transportation other than getting around by car, and there are no jobs or no friends to stay with within the area.
Shane passed away a year ago, leaving Darren stuck with his mother-in-law in this godforsaken place. His brother crashed his car, so he has no means of getting out of there as well as no money what so ever his name.
He needs to get a car, a job, and medical attention (mainly HRT and surgery as well as therapy) to be able to move out of there and reclaim a life that was stolen due to illness, transphobia and a terrible environment.
I hate being passive, because there is literally nothing I can do about this right now. And the reason I am writing this FOR him is because he would feel guilty doing it himself. It’s hard to ask for help.
I have seen tumblr as a community help out other people in need, so that is why I am choosing to reach out. I have seen transmen getting their surgery funded through these means, but this is more than just a surgery we’re talking about (even though that in particular is sorely needed), I’m talking about helping my friend getting his life back, and medical intervention is a part of that. Sadly, I have no services or crafts or anything to offer as of right now, but I probably will in the future.

Any amount helps, and if you can’t give anything I would appreciate sooo much if you could spread the word!
Thank you for reading.
Oh my gosh, I don’t even know what to say here…
I thank you for this and anyone interested in this, I never feel good about doing this because I don’t really have artsy talents and I’m about as crafty as an ogre with 2 fingers. I can’t, without a guilty/gross conscience, get away with asking for donations with nothing in return. I just can’t. This is my life problems, I’m not chronically ill with cancer or something like that, and I don’t want to saddle anyone else with my problems when I know 95% of tumblr is also dirt poor. It’ll take a lot to get me out of my situation!
I have however considered writing commissions, though my knowledge about most of the popular fandoms like Supernatural, Teen Wolf and Dr. Who are extremely limited (I know more about SPN than Dr. Who, and nothing about Teen Wolf), what I do know is stuff like:
- Midnight Crew (and a very cursory, basic knowledge of the kids/trolls, I cannot keep up with the comic anymore, I’m sorry!)
- Guild Wars 2
- Obviously a myriad of Mads Mikkelsen’s movies, if anyone wanted fic about those, ahah
I like doing OC stuff as well, with enough descriptions and contact with the requester so I can ask questions!
Down to the nitty gritty: I do like me some erotica (obviously) and sky’s the limit about what I will write for a commission, I’m quite shameless - though I probably wouldn’t write severe bestiality or extreme underage on my own. I’m not used to writing guro, but I can certainly try!
Other than that, there’s no kink or other thing you can’t tell me to write about. ~*this is a kink-shaming free zone*~, hehe!
Other than this… if anyone is wanting to do this, I would just cry and love you forever basically, because I can;t do much of anything else unless you want me to make your personal faves kiss, play on swings or roll in the hay. :3
Thank you, all!
Reblogging again with this information as well, I might also add that if you commission a fic, you WILL get your money’s worth!
