You can find more information by googling Graham-Cassidy, but here's one link.
Apparently, Lindsey Graham - one of the bill's sponsors - got on Breitbart radio (yes, now we're integrating Breitbart into GOP mainstream, fun times ahead) to urge listeners to call in support of the new bill, so it's VERY IMPORTANT that the Senate be flooded with opposition calls.
Here is one script and information resource.
Title: The impatience of youth
Fandom: The Silmarillion
Pairing: Aredhel/Elenwë, background Fingon/Maedhros
Summary: "Our favorite girls being jackasses. Or: in which I enjoy cock-blocking Aredhel and Elenwë way too much."

General stuff first!
I love all of the fandoms and characters I'm requesting, so if one section seems longer or shorter than another, it's due to how much I had to say, not how much I love the request. (And also maybe an indicator of where I was when I started running out of energy and ideas and what has gotten at least partial copy-paste treatment. Sorry, RimWorld.) They are all fandoms of my heart, and I'm excited at the possibility of receiving any of them.
Also, this letter is super long, so again, please don't feel obligated to read it all (or at all!). If you already have an idea of what you want to do from just the AO3 requests, go for it! This is all to (I hope) make it easier on you, and I am a big believer in optional details being optional. There being fic or art for my fandoms will make me happy. Everything else is icing on delicious, delicious cake.
This year I'm requesting art or fic in seven fandoms: Dragon Age (Varric), Dwarf Fortress (Cat, Dwarf, Forgotten Beast, Kobold, Necromancer, Overseer), Fallout 4 (Deacon), Naruto (Guy/Gai, Kakashi), RimWorld, The Scumthorpe Files (any), and Rubyquest (Red, Ruby). Each fandom section will include subsections as follows: short summary/promotion and links (for smaller fandoms), general fandom talk, characters-specific prompts (where applicable), trick prompts, treat prompts, art prompts. Feel free to skip straight to what you feel is most relevant. :D
Fair warning: this letter will contain spoilers, so if you have it on your "to watch/to read/to play" list and want to go into it with fresh eyes, you'll want to skip that section.
A note: I've received fic and art in the past for several of my requested fandoms, which I loved! I just want more. If you matched me on one of those, I am sure I will love whatever you make me, whether it's along the lines of the gifts I've already gotten or something entirely new.

If you've made it this far, I'd like to thank you for participating in Trick or Treat. This is a delightful exchange, and I am excited for and about it.
My number one hope for my gift fic or art is that you have a good time with it, so let me emphasize again that I'm just happy that there will be another fanwork for one of these fandoms. This monster of a letter was mostly an excuse to enthuse about these fandoms, and I truly hope it doesn't put you off or make you worry about whether you can make any of the prompts work. Whatever you end up writing or drawing, I'm hoping it's something you enjoy about the fandom and have fun creating.
Have a happy Trick or Treat!
Fandom: Harry Potter

This is a big bang challenge for the sapphics, celebrating femslash pairings across many different fandoms. The main ones are RWBY, Star Trek, and Supergirl, plus more than ten others fandoms.
Authors have to write a minimum of 10,000 words, while artists have to create at least one piece based on the fic they claimed. Various types of art are allowed, including traditional and digital art, graphics, gifsets, moodboards, fanvideos, and fanmixes.
Fics and art pieces are due in late November.

Are the roles for Native American actors better now than when you first got into the business?
I would love to say things have changed over that time, that there are more mature Native American characters being written, but I’m not sure that’s happened. I can say that at least Native American characters are allowed to think now instead of being the old sidekicks like Tonto, where the Lone Ranger asks “Are those four men on horses?” and Tonto says, “Yes. There are four men on horses.” Our characters now are a little deeper. They’re allowed to have their own thoughts. Sometimes non-Native American writers have us doing things we wouldn’t do or saying things we wouldn’t say — stuff that’s just not in our DNA — but at least we’re getting to think now. I’m still riding horses, shooting arrows and killing white people, so a lot hasn’t changed since I got into the business, but at least it hasn’t gotten worse.I started watching the Ken Burns 'National Parks' documentary, subtitled America's Greatest Idea. "First," it seems to say, "you get rid of all the Indians." It's a history I've been delving into with increasing purpose. Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer is a beautiful book celebrating Native American relationships with the land. I found it really nourishing, with useful meditations on the concept of home. Sherman Alexie's The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven is a collection of short stories with a visceral, freewheeling style. I've only known his poems before, but this anthology makes me want to delve more into his prose. (hashtag tbt but i found myself wondering if candle-beck read and loved sherman alexie, back in the day. their styles felt similar.) I recommend both these books. Kimmerer and Alexie have vastly different styles, but there is something elegiac in both their works, her longing for a golden past and his anger at the current scars.
I don't know. I'm an immigrant in this country. I've had my green card for only a year and a half, and now I find myself wanting to know more about this place, especially the parts of it history has tried to stamp out. I'm on the lookout for more works by Native Americans, so if you have recommendations, let me know.
Title: How far can you carry this?
Fandom: The Silmarillion
Pairing: Gen, Elwing & Eärendil
Summary: "They make mountains upon the beach from sand and pebbles, because all Eärendil’s memories are of cold and pale walls of stone and walking for ever and ever. When Elwing thinks of home it is dark forests and damp loam beneath her feet and running and stopping and hiding and running again, like rabbits."

I am looking for a specific fic. Dean ends up working with Cas at a remote hotel/resort by a lake. The owner (a relative of Cas'?) is pregnant and has been left by the child's father. The hotel is struggling to stay in business and Dean and Cas try to work for free to help out. They stay at the hotel in the off-season. The owner has health complications due to pregnancy and Dean and Cas help with doctors visits etc. I believe Sam shows up at some point looking for Dean who ran off for some reason.
Mods, I hope I tagged it correctly now. I tried it on the laptop this time but I'm not sure what I did wrong the first time. Please tell me what is wrong about the tags if its still not right.
I'm looking for an older story and my memories of it might be a bit sketchy.
Jared tries to land a role in the new movie Neil Patrick Harris is making but the man will only hire him if he is gay(?)I think he only wants someone that knows and supports the gay community? This is where my memory fails me. So Jared asks Jensen to pretend to be his boyfriend. He does so reluctantly. This works and Jared lands the role.
There is also scene in the story where Jensen hosts a poker game where the admission is the script of a movie or play. Everyone brings a script from a recent audition, the worse and idiotic the script the better. It was a longstanding tradition that Jensen now continues.
Rings a bell? Does anyone know the title or writer or even a link?
I'm looking for a specific wincest fuck or die fic i seem to have lost. Here's what i can remember:
Theres a witch involved but she gets away.
Dean is tied up and wakes up to find Sam stretching himself out. Sam is embarrassed and tells Dean not to look.
They argue about going after the witch but Sam insists they don't have time and sits in Dean's lap and rides him.
In the end Dean begs Sam to let him go because he wants to touch Sam.
Thats all i can remember, fingers crossed someone knows what I'm talking about! :)
