70,000 USD does seem like a lot, which is why many of our users may be surprised to find out that in 2015, the OTW will need 75,000 USD just to replace old servers and expand capacity! The OTW’s annual budget for 2014 is 221,863.44 USD, and 70% of that goes directly to servers, collation, and staff development for AO3. The remaining 30% of our 2014 budget funds Fanlore, Legal Advocacy, Open Doors, and Transformative Works and Cultures; covers administrative costs; allows for outreach and membership development (such as our thank you gifts and shipping); and provides opportunities for professional development and training for personnel. All of these things help the OTW protect and celebrate fans and fan culture.
I find it amazing that people think that’s a lot of money to ask. It’s incredibly expensive to fund such heavily used and non ad supported websites, and that before anyone even gets paid for their work. I am definitely donating what I can to this drive, and I hope if you have a few dollars spare and benefit from Archive of Our Own, or any of their projects you will consider donating as well.
i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
I had a dream I was Thomas from the maze runner but instead of a maze we were In a huge government facility and I was trying to escape but they kept sending naked ladies to distract me and it was working bc I had this huge boner that was distracting me from my task
Idk why they didn’t just drug me or knock me out it was weird
My dick was so huge in my tight pants they thought I had some how gotten a gun and I was just like dude no u just keep sending in really hot naked ladies ???
But then somehow I was able to focus on the papers I had stolen long enough to figure out how to save the baby from the evil government and I did I saved the baby
And we ended up escaping so yay
i feel like my twitter chronicles my slow descent into madness
