The agents that decided it would be a good idea to let Loki watch “Groundhog Day” will be assigned turbine cleaning duties for the next month, starting today. Given that we’re all repeating today seemingly without end, that should give you plenty of time to come to a full understanding of exactly why this was a bad idea.

((Hey everybody!

Sorry for the radio silence over here for a while; I’ve been getting my ducks in a row, etc. Life is generally going quite a bit better for me, up to the point of probably being able to see my family for my birthday in March [this is a Big Deal- I haven’t been able to go home in over a year and a half]. The fact that I had such amazing support is a big part of this, so I thank you all a lot, even if all you were able to do was send some kind words. <3

Memos from Fury should be up and running again by next week, but in the meantime, I’d like to use the signal-boosting power I’ve discovered this account has to see if anybody’d be able to help out my friend Teja. For context, she’s the whole reason I was able to get to New York in the first place- I stayed in her house for a few months a couple of years ago, and from there I ended up moving to a nanny job in the city. It’s been a pretty rocky road, as you guys have probably realized, but I wouldn’t trade the vast majority of the experiences I’ve had out here for the world, and in a lot of ways I’m really living a childhood dream thanks to her and her mom.

They’ve fallen on some rough times lately. For privacy’s sake, I’m not going to go into them here, but they’re behind on quite a few bill payments and things are looking kind of shaky for them. I’m gonna send them some funds myself, since I’m actually able to now, but I’d also like to ask if any of you guys can signal boost this or help out. I don’t know exactly how much they need, but I figure anything we can come up with will help. 

If you want to donate anything, send it to my Paypal (meganphntmgrl@gmail.com) and I’ll send it forward to her and her mom. I’ll figure out a way of showing a receipt for it when I send it if anybody wants proof that this isn’t for me- I just don’t want to personally pull her into this because asking for help is pretty rough on her. If you can’t, signal boosting is always appreciated!

Happy New Year, and here’s to another year of memos and Marvel-ous humor starting next week. 

Thanks!
Megan the mod))

DAYS LEFT IMMEDIATE LIFE OR DEATH HELP NEEDED ONE LAST TIME
Tumblr friends. You all saved my life. Unfortunately I need help one last time to keep it that way.
You helped me pay down a hospital bill so I could have major brain surgery in October. Well, the bill for that is $9,600- Medicaid covered the hospital, NOT the doctor(!!). due to financial hardship, it’s reduced to $4,500. (more than half my annual income, on Disability).
The problem: the doctor HAS TO adjust and monitor my new neuro implant every other week, and I WILL DIE WITHOUT THE ADJUSTMENTS. But he is NOT ALLOWED to see me more than once more unless this is paid.
The reduction has conditions: I must pay $1,000 by Dec 16, and the $3,500 balance by Dec 23.
This is a terrible blow to me, unreal. The frustration and fear is simply overwhelming.
So, sadly, I must ask for help one least time (I’ll get on Free Care in April). You’ve all already been so generous. The SPNFamily, fandoms, and Tumblr at large has been amazing. And if there were any way to avoid asking, I would.
PLEASE DONATE IF YOU CAN! I’ve set up a PayPal with the email lartpourlartnow@gmail.com to accept funds (if you “send to a friend” there’s no fee). The hospital can only accept payment from me.I know the Holidays are already an expensive time. Maybe give someone the gift of saving a life in their name? And I know I recently got so much help from you all. If I had any way to avoid this I would. And of course I’m happy to repay with fics, songs, editing, or anything I can.
As it is I’m also homeless and sometimes staying with my violent abusive parents, other times staying with friends. Every cent I get is going to other medical expenses and necessities.
PLEASE SHARE THIS as far and wide as you can! Share it as text so everyone can read and share again. Whether or not you can give, others may be able to.
Thank you all so so much! Below are some photos just to show what I mean. They called me with the settlement, but the original bill is there, as well as a few of my scars (yes they shaved the whole side of my head).
Thank you again! PLEASE DONATE AND SHARE IF YOU CAN, and ask me any questions. 
[Update: WOW! So far you’ve all gotten me to almost half of the total bill! YOU ARE AMAZING! PLEASE DONATE AND KEEP SHARING so I can survive this!]




dustline:
Sopranish is my friend, and I’ve personally witnessed the reality of her struggles, so I can vouch for both the urgency and the legitimacy of this plea for help. She is on a time crunch and really scared, so any shares or donations would be so, so appreciated. Every little thing helps!!


PLEASE help her.She is so scared.
There’s 0.00 at my PayPal now and I won’t get my salary until tomorrow evening, so I can only spread this so far. Help her if you can.

nothelplesssoftandcuddly asked: I hope you are doing well and have found a place. Please let us know if you still need help or anything. I really miss having you around here and I'm worried about you!

((OOC:

Things are doing a bit better. I’ve gotten my landlady to lighten up a bit, and she’s gotten much better at directing her anger where it’s supposed to go- usually the other boarder- rather than toward me. In addition to that, we finally cleared up where one of her weirder recurring accusations was coming from- namely, that I was “bringing evil into her house”. Turns out she thought I was doing some creepy cult stuff because of the Devil’s Carnival poster on my bedroom wall, and once I finally pieced that together I explained that it was just a movie poster and even if it’s about the Christian Devil it’s just a horror movie. That satisfied her- she’s not actually religious herself at all, but she was really concerned about what I was doing, and as weird as the accusations still were, I’m just relieved that that’s over with.

My fingers are crossed that I’ll still be able to move out within a few months. Even if I’m not the direct recipient of any of the stuff going on in the house anymore, it’s still taking a pretty hard toll on me- my landlady and her son argue a lot, usually at night, when I’m trying to sleep, and she plays music way too loud on Friday and Saturday nights. This isn’t good for me when I have to work, and as a result I’m usually really exhausted and run-down come Monday- right in time for three days in a row where I have to get up at 5:45 AM. On top of that, the other boarder tends to be of zero help- he’s had his issues with the landlady too, and he takes them out on her pretty verbally abusively. Even when she’s not there to hear it, but I sure as hell can. He’s developed a habit of trying to use me as a kind of rhetorical human shield while arguing with her, trying to make it sound like we’re a united front against her. We’re pretty sure it’s because he and I are white and our landlady’s not, and I’ve made it very clear to him that I don’t want any part in that bullshit (and my landlady trusts me on that, thank God), but that doesn’t stop him from still trying to drag me into his battles. He’s being evicted in January, I think, and I’m hoping that his absence will smooth over my last few months there.

So, tl;dr- I will still happily accept any help I can get, because things are still pretty rough, but I’m no longer living in a constant state of panic. <3))

looking for a new apartment share situation and/or help getting some money scraped up to move

meganphntmgrl:

meganphntmgrl:

Hey guys.

I just found out that I’m going to need to find a new place to stay by early December. My landlady’s dad is ailing, and he and her mom are going to be moving back here. Since I’m the latest addition to the household (I’ve only lived here since February), I’m considered the expendable one, and have been told I need to leave.

Right now, I’m paying $600 a month for my bedroom.. That’s about all my budget can take. I’ve already been looking on Craigslist, and there are other rooms on a similar budget, but they require deposits and are paid monthly (I pay weekly). So coming up with $1,200 in a month and a half is a really daunting proposition, to put it mildly, and if you can help at all, my PayPal address is meganphntmgrl@gmail.com.

About me, if you have an actual room to offer:

I am a 24 year old woman. I don’t smoke or drink. I work as a nanny/babysitter with a rotating roster of different families throughout Manhattan, so my schedule hops around a bit. I have some wire shelves I’ll be bringing with me wherever I move to, and an air mattress and sheets I can sleep on if there’s not a bed in my new home. I’m trying to find somewhere I can stay for at least a year, if not longer. My current landlady can attest if necessary that I’m always very upfront with my rent payments.

It’s important that I’m able to stay in Manhattan, or no further afield than about Brooklyn Heights or thereabouts, because of work (in particular, because I have to be around the 181st St. A train station by 7 AM three days a week, and at the 168th St A/C area by 6:30 AM a few days a month). If you have a room I can stay in but it’s over $600 a month, I’m willing to make up for it by cooking or cleaning if you’re okay with that.

If you can’t donate and don’t have a room, please signal boost the hell out of this.

Okay, update: I have successfully talked my deadline down to February instead. Long story short: the sick-dad story was a goddamn lie, she just wants the room empty so her grandson- who currently is sleeping on the couch- can have some space of his own, because she feels he’s not provided for. So hell yes, I’m feeling angry and manipulated, but I do understand her need to care for her family, and I ended up basically saying that I should have just been told the truth to begin with and given a reasonable timeframe to arrange my own end of this. If anything, this just highlighted that yeah, I need to get the hell out of here, this is a really toxic situation, but I do have more time to figure this out than I thought.

$1200 is still a lot of money, and I think for my psychological health a sooner move is better than later, so I’m still asking for help, but I’m no longer facing potential homelessness within a month and a half.

Send Your Stuffed Animal On An NYC Vacation

meganphntmgrl:

Hi!

My name is Megan. I live and work in New York City, and would like to be able to continue doing so. However, I’m currently dealing with a really toxic/abusive living situation and am trying to scrape up enough money to move to a different place. There are a lot of other places I can check out that are very close to where I currently live (which would be ideal for work) that are still on my monthly budget, but most of them require monthly payments (rather than the weekly payments I’m currently making), which means that I need to have two months’ rent on-hand to even move in the first place. I’m a nanny/babysitter for a living, so this is a really daunting prospect on my own. At the same time, though, it’s getting really difficult for me to tough it out where I’m currently living, so the sooner I can raise the money I need to move out, the better. (I have approximately a little less than a bedroom’s worth of stuff, so I’m not worried about covering my own actual moving expenses- I can probably use a man-with-a-van service to move all my boxed stuff wherever I go.)

With that in mind, I’m offering a rather unusual service as a means of raising some extra money. Last week, I read about a Japanese travel agency that does vacations for stuffed animals to places where the toys’ owners would like to visit themselves but can’t. I’m offering something similar, but for New York City.

Here’s how it works:

  • Base price per stuffed animal is $25 plus the return shipping (depends on the size of the stuffed animal).
  • If there are any particular sites you want your stuffed animal to visit that require an additional entry fee, that will be added to the cost (for example, it costs $18 to go up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building, so while I’m willing to take your toy up there, you’ll have to cover that as an additional cost).
  • Places with free entry are, of course, no extra charge.
  • I can send you photos of your stuffed animal enjoying the sights by phone or email them to you (or both). I am also considering setting up a Tumblr page to publicly share the photos if there’s enough demand.
  • For an extra fee I can have the photos made into a little 4 X 6 photo book and mailed back to you with your stuffed animal.
  • Because I’m working (and because of the cost involved), I can’t really do things like Broadway shows, sports events, etc. Even if it were paid for on your end, I’m trying to save up money to move, so taking a night off of work to bring someone’s stuffed animal to an event isn’t really in my interests right now.
  • Right now I estimate that the average vacation for your stuffed animal will last about a week.
  • I don’t charge extra per number of photos, free sites, etc.
  • Right now, this is only for stuffed animals/plush dolls- no plastic dolls, action figures, etc. This is to make sure they can handle being mailed back and forth without breaking.

If you’re interested, please email me at meganphntmgrl@gmail.com so we can talk things over, discuss prices, and exchange information!

moreagaara asked: No, Congress will not be able to handle Loki. And that is the point.

If they can’t handle him, we’ll have to send in someone else who can. That kind of defeats the purpose from where I’m standing.
