The Dream Fairy always bails me out when I have writer's block. :P And now for something more serious...

Fix Rachel's Wonky Mouth

I am friends with Rachel Nabors, the artist behind Subculture of One. Rachel is a remarkable person--she began publishing her own comics when she was 18, and now, at the age of 22, she is one of the few people I know who can support herself on her artwork alone. She is the definition of pulling oneself up by the bootstraps.

Rachel had a terrible accident when she was 14. She lost a tooth and, unknown to her doctors, she fractured her jaw. That fracture healed improperly, and now that she is older, the bone is weakening. Without surgery, the problem will worsen, and she will very likely lose all her teeth. Rachel is a lovely person, inside and out, and I do not want to see this happen to her.

Rachel has no health insurance, and even if she did, it probably would not cover dental problems. Dental insurance would most likely consider this cosmetic, despite the threat of losing her teeth, or they would write it off as a preexisting condition. She needs multiple procedures done, which will cost upwards of $15,000. Yes, you read that right. This is a problem that few people would be able to handle on their own.

Friends of Rachel have set up a fund to help Rachel get the surgery she needs. Please click the banner above to donate to the cause. To support this cause, I am offering a KT wallpaper to those who donate:

Just email me at davakb (at) gmail (dot) com with the Paypal confirmation number from your donation, and I will tell you where to find this wallpaper. Thank you so very much!

I giggle every time I see Minty in a Bat-Related storyline... Makes me want to watch BTAS, again. :D

Best wishes for Rachel!

I've finally mixed Batmint with the Dream Fairy. It's like peanut butter and chocolate!

Thanks. I know she'll appreciate that. ^_^

Is that The Lizard in the third panel?
Feb. 27th, 2008 05:14 pm (UTC)
It looks like him, but it's actually the Jim Lee version of Killer Croc from Hush. He was given a mutagen in that story and started to become even more reptilian.

I missed Bat Mint!! :-D

I may be able to help Rachel at the end of this month or the beginning of next, if that's ok. She's in my prayers!

That will be fine! This will be a two-year-long ordeal for her, but she won't be starting it until this summer.

It cracks me up . . . how the littlest pet shop horse is the dream fairy and that lizard just looks too funny right there! Funny thing is, I have a bunch of littlest pet shops and the horses are so cute, but crack me up now because I think of the dream fairy. haha

I am really low on money right now, but perhaps next paycheck I could spare a little. I really don't have much at all, but they say every little bit helps, so yah.
Rachel is in my thoughts though. That is just terrible.

Little Pet Shop just works so well in the KT universe. I just love them! I'm kinda sad that Hasbro is changing them up now. The new ones are dang creepy!

It's okay if you have no money to spare. We all know how that is. There are other ways to help, like linking to her page, if you want to do that.

::laughing:: The expression on the LPS' face is the best ever. LOL.

I have a hereditary problem that threatens to do the same thing to my teeth that Rachel is experiencing now. Like Rachel, insurance won't cover it because it's considered "cosmetic" (don't get me started). Honestly, it's my worst nightmare, and I'd hate to see anyone else have to go through something like that. Of course I will donate. ::goes to do so::
Feb. 27th, 2008 05:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you a million times over! *huge hug* I hope your worst nightmare never plays out. I hate to see this happen to anyone.
Feb. 27th, 2008 02:22 pm (UTC)
Yay!! I love it when Minty is dressed as Batman!!! I wish I could do the same :3
Feb. 27th, 2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
Me, too! All I've got is a utility belt, and it's one of those shoddy kiddie toys.
Feb. 27th, 2008 03:21 pm (UTC)
Hmm... I don't have much money at all, but I donated all the money in my PayPal account to her (a grand total of $1.03 =[)... I sure hope it helps.

Also, I wish I had a batman mask/hat like that hahaa.
Feb. 27th, 2008 05:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Email me your Paypal confirmation number, and I can direct you toward the donation gift.

Doodle for you. ;P

Haha, this comic is great. The wallpaper's lovely!!
Feb. 27th, 2008 07:07 pm (UTC)
Omigosh, thank you! :D Squee!! I've got another piece of fan art I need to add to the site, so maybe I can get both of those up today. Thank you so much!

Edit: Oh! And I need to know which website you'd want me to link to.

haha, at first I was like... "What the monster changed" lol.... that is just too funny.

I wish I had some money spare to donate, that would be a horrible thing to have happen..... If I get any spare cash, I will donate.
Feb. 28th, 2008 02:27 am (UTC)
Thank you! That's very sweet of you. ^_^ Don't feel like you have to give anything you can't spare. You can also help by linking others to the page. A lot of people aren't aware that this can happen.

Teh viruses! They are everywhere! *hides* I wish my own recent virus issues had resulted in something as cute as an LPS lizard, LOL.

I can't spare much right now (O TAXES!), but I'll donate what I can at the end of the week when I put the shop on hiatus and empty out my PayPal account. I have various unresolved tooth/jaw issues that I'm afraid will someday land me in a similar position, so I have a lot of sympathy for your friend.
Feb. 28th, 2008 04:41 am (UTC)
I definitely had your viruses on the brain when I was fighting my way around my writer's block. :P

I'll donate what I can at the end of the week

Thank you! *hug* I just really wanted to help her out. I wouldn't be able to handle a situation like that now, much less back when I was 22. This whole thing just reminds of problems that you have, and Kris has, and Kyle... it's just a nightmare.
Feb. 28th, 2008 08:06 am (UTC)
At first I thought the character was changing to mimic how scenery and things sometimes morph into other things in dreams. But I like the actual joke better!
Feb. 28th, 2008 04:51 pm (UTC)
That happens in my dreams all the time, and everyone else's too, I guess. I thought I'd explain the glitch. ;)
Feb. 28th, 2008 02:51 pm (UTC)
I love my dreams where I'm Batman and/or Catwoman (I'm everyone in my dreams). I'd get so mad if the Dream Fairy messed up those dreams.
Feb. 28th, 2008 04:52 pm (UTC)
Ditto! Minty really does have the worst Dream Fairy.
May. 7th, 2008 06:14 pm (UTC)
I missed this one in my absence :O
Yay Bossk!
