I don't often jump on the bandwagon, because I'm never sure how much things like this really make a difference, but this I really wanted to help out with. So here we go.

What I'm offering: One fan fic of at least 2,500 words.

Fandoms: NCIS (Abby/Ziva, Abby/Kate, Jenny/Ziva), Star Wars (Jaina/Jag, Han/Leia, Luke/Mara, Ben, Tahiri/Anakin, Syal/Jaina, Jaina/Tenel Ka), Alias (Syd/Vaughn, Jack/Irina), Grey's Anatomy (Meredith/Addison), Rachel Morgan (Rachel/Ivy, Ivy/Skimmer), Fried Green Tomatoes (Ruth/Idgie), Guiding Light (Olivia/Natalia), and Good Wife (Kalinda/Alicia).

Additional Info: The above pretty much states what pairings or fandoms I'm willing to write, but if you know I've written it before, feel free to ask and I might be willing to go there again.  I won't write smut, or dub/non-con.  I will write angst or fluff  and I'm more than willing to work with any prompt you have. 

Starting Bid: $10.

You can find information on how to bid/donate here, if you're interested.

There are also a lot more people who are participating in this, so if perhaps you're not interested in a fic written by me, go and check out the help_haiti community. There are literally hundreds of other people participating.

hey everyone
i'm joinig in need of your help. as i live in Russia, it's hard to get some books in English, and FGT is not that popular, so perhaps we don't have it here at all. but, since i'm madly in love with the book (read in translation) and the movie, i want to read it in original so badly.
so if any of you guys could give me a link to or email me the original text of FGT, i'd reallly apreciate that)

Since traffic around here seems a little thin--what's up with that?!--I thought I'd do my part to liven things up. Does anyone know of any FGT fanfic floating around on the web and/or is anyone interested in reading any of mine?

I will not let this community -- this pretty, pretty community -- die!

So: what's your favorite moment of the book or movie? What parts did you like about the movie, and where did you think it could be improved (if you consider such a thing possible)?

For my part, I thought the movie and cut out a lot of the black history of the book, but I guess they had a lot of stuff to try to get in a small amount of time. They have no excuse for not making the movie longer, however: that finger-licking scene wouldn't have added that many minutes. And I'm sure our audiences would have been willing to wait.

I just found the only "Fried Green Tomatoes" music videos I've ever seen.

What Becomes of the Brokenhearted. General overview of the movie, very well put together.

You in My Life. Idgie/Ruth video, from Idgie's POV. I couldn't sit through the song, but it also looks pretty good.

You Were There. Another Ruth/Idgie video. It's pretty cool, if you forgive the fact that it stars "Iggy."

Hi there! This is the inaugural entry of what we hope will be a wildly popular and frequently frequented livejournal community. This community is open to anyone who has had contact with the movie or book of "Fried Green Tomatoes", whether you saw it/read it 10 years ago and enjoyed a mild internal chuckle or, like me, you read and saw it at the tender age of 12 and it has been your Bible and best inanimate friend ever since, influencing everything from how you act to what you wear. It's a healthy obsession, honest! 

We're hoping to create an environment here that is as "folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting" as the story itself. Questions, comments, enthusiastic contributions, fanfics, fanarts, friendly discussion and arguments are all welcome. 

So come on in, have some blissfully unhealthy food, and enjoy the atmosphere.
