Alternatives to photobucket?

So Photobucket decided they are not going to allow us to link from their site to LJ unless we upgrade and if I'm reading it right, they want about $400 a year. Everything from all the reviews I've done is linked to PB. I don't even know where to start with this but $400 is out of the question. It feels like extortion. I haven't used the LJ scrapbook for much and the links don't work with DW and I just feel exhausted and frankly heartbroken thinking about it. Seasons of writing and work just totally screwed over. Any good ideas?

Impala countdown day 10 - Impala Easter Egg

Happy Easter for those of you who celebrate it using the Gregorian calendar. I hope you also had a good Sunday if you are doing something else with your day besides finally breaking your Lenten fast and eating too many Peeps. There are blue ones, there are pink ones, there are purple ones and there are yellow ones and they're all made out of sticky stuff and they all taste just the same.

I thought it would be the right day to post a SPN Easter egg cap that is Impala related. In episode 8.11 - Larp and the Real Girl, Sam, Dean and Charlie end up in a tent where Charlie has been kidnapped and held prisoner by Boltar and they meet the fairy also trapped by Boltar and forced to do his will. There on the wall is what looks to be the head of an impala.

DW Friending Meme posted by giselleslash

I'm still doing my posting from LJ but I have a dreamwidth backup. I know some folks are moving to DW so I thought I'd pass this on.

Since a lot of people are migrating over to DW, or thinking about doing so, I thought I'd do a friending meme over there to help people find their way and maybe some new friends to follow and flail with. :D

Come on over and visit if you're interested: DW FRIENDING MEME

Also, feel free to pass it along to people on your flist who are making the move and you think might be interested. ♥

Impala birthday countdown day 13 - a cap from 4.13 on 4/13

In looking for Impala related things to post, I kept thinking about a cap that I did a really short meta for back in 2013. When I went looking for the cap and found out that it was from episode 4.13 - After School Special and that today was 4/13, I figured it was meant to be. The cap is from when John comes to pick young Sam and Dean up from school to move on to a new town. The shadows of the trees remind me of scary hands. The meta is here and is only about a paragraph long.

I like the almost sepia tones like in old photographs reinforcing that this scene took place in the past. I also like the way Sam's orange jacket matches the orange fall leaves. They are just right for back-to-school time.

Ok, that's about enough thirteens for one day.

Impala birthday countdown day 14 - some fic recs

Over the years in this fandom, I've read some good stories that feature the Impala, some by authors on my flist. The ones listed here are a few that were mostly written a few years back but are new to me. Most of this bunch take place in and around the end of Season 3. The first one is Sam/Dean and the rest are gen.
