  1. Summary

    This is a fic series where, after each day of phone banking for the democratic ticket in the US's 2020 presidential election, I will write a fic that's 10x the number of calls I made. So if I make 14 calls, I write and post a 140 word fic. If I make 27 calls, a 270 word fic. Then, as I add more fics to the series, the total word count of the series is the total number of calls I've made divided by 10.

    For the other people phone banking -- if you are open to sharing your number of calls/texts/postcards (either total, per week, per day) and if my style of writing is your jam, let me know what kind of fic you'd like in the comments or on tumblr (http://jocarthage.tumblr.com) and I'll try to write you a one-shot.

    If you'd like to start phone banking, you can sign-up for a good, comprehensive training here: https://demvolctr.org. One of my friends from high school is one of the trainers. The training is 40 minutes, then 40 minutes of making practice calls, then 15 minutes of debrief.

    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    Summary

    Michael needs to get to Roswell. After he grew up in the foster system, with no family to tie him to New Mexico, he left it behind without a second thought. But when he comes across a piece of mysterious multi-colored glass, he has to trace it back to Roswell’s UFO Emporium, no matter what it takes.

    The concept is simple. The contract is not. After Alex's injury in Iraq, his father forces him to return to Roswell to recover with the assistance of a Companion. And unless Alex selects a Companion of his own, Jesse will do it for him.

    This story is complete and will update Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
