Hope to Haiti [24 Mar 2012|11:39pm]


I am trying to raise $5,000 for a charity in the name of Random Acts for their project Hope to Haiti. I would love to organise a fic exchange, would anyone be willing to help organise?

Thanks in advance :)

Message from help_mindanao [30 Dec 2011|09:56pm]

I've had a message from a mod of help_mindanao, asking me to promote that community. I'm not very well aquainted with the people involved, but they're holding an auction to raise money for victims of a flood in the Philippines, which is a very worthy cause.

Helping Hand [14 Jan 2010|10:12pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I’ll be offering my time as an author again to help out with the tragedy in Haiti. I can write in the following fandoms (feel free to check with me for a pairing list if you want to be sure I can/will write it. I write primarily canon ships with minimal slash in FMA and Saiyuki. I could probably handle almost any character in a non-shippy sense)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Angel the Series
Star Trek (pretty much any of them though I didn’t make it all the way through Enterprise)
Fullmetal Alchemist
Fruits Basket
Dogs: Blood & Carnage (new to this one)
D. Gray-man (note I only follow the bound volumes and not the online releases so I’m a bit behind)

I don’t actually set a price for the stories or a word count. I trust others to pay what they can afford and you can pick the charity and we can work out word counts together. Suggestions – Oxfam, doctors without borders

Haiti Relief Efforts -- Fandom Offers [14 Jan 2010|01:23pm]

Here's a preliminary collection of offers to take on challenges for charity targeting the relief efforts to aid the victims devastated by the earthquake and its aftermath in Haiti.

Should there be additional offers, I'll add to this list, so you can bookmark/refresh to see what other fans have offered to create. If warranted, I'll break the list down by types of offer (fic, graphics, crafts, other) and requests to make viewing easier -- otherwise, please check out the more general listing of offers below.

Haiti Relief Offers
adoxerella offers to write fanfic in Angel, Buffy, Torchwood, and Harry Potter fandoms for Red Cross/Doctors Without Borders here.
ghettopeach will write in a variety of fandoms and styles, including such fandoms as Harry Potter, Star Trek, Angel, Buffy, Arrested Development, and How I Met Your Mother, as detailed in this post.
tesla321, for donations to Red Cross or Catholic Charities, will write Bones, X-Files, House, Angel, Buffy, and other fandoms -- see her offer here.
bookishwench offers up Buffy, Lost, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, as well as other fandoms, in this post for dontations to the Red Cross.
cornerofmadness offers primarily canon ships in Star Trek, Full Metal Alchemist, Fruits Basket, Buffy, Angel, NCIS, and other fandoms, as detailed here.

If you have written fic or created graphics or some other shareable-to-LJ materials as part of a challenge for charity, and if the person for whom the materials were created is fine with it, please feel free to share your creations over at fc_creations. For now we ask that you please keep this community as a place for requests/offers only. Additionally, people curious to check out fics/graphics created in response to posts at this community will be able to find them easily at fc_creations rather than overlooking them among the many posts here.

Thank you to everyone offering or extending challenges to help fans contribute to the cause. Please check to make informed decisions about lesser-known charitable organizations before donating your contribution.

For Haitian earthquake relief [14 Jan 2010|11:20am]
[ mood | determined ]

For a donation to The Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders I will offer up fanfic in the following fandoms.

Angel and/or Buffy
Harry Potter

For $10 you get 1000 words, for $5 you get 500. Also since most of my creativity seems to be coming out through yarn rather than text a $50 donation plus the cost of shipping will get you a pair of hand knit socks.

For Haiti earthquake relief [13 Jan 2010|10:57pm]

As you probably know, Haiti was devastated by an earthquake that destroyed its capital of Port-au-Prince, left tens to hundreds of thousands of people dead, and stranded survivors without access to food, water, and medical supplies. For your donation dollars, I will happily write fanfics for any of the following fandoms:

*Doctor Who (9 & 10)
*Star Trek (any)
*Babylon 5
*Harry Potter
*Thursday Next
*How I Met Your Mother
*Arrested Development
*Burn Notice
*Red Dwarf

I am also open to other fandoms if I am familiar with them. (Feel free to ask!) I can roll with crossovers. Gen, het, slash, and femmeslash are all okay. Open to threesomes. Writing can range from humorous to heartbreaking. You can see samples of my work here and on my LJ.

$1 per 100 words requested.

For Haitian Relief [13 Jan 2010|09:58pm]

Please donate to the Red Cross or Catholic Charities.

I can write in the following fandoms:


$1 for each 100 words requested, $10 for 1000 words, and so on. I'm not prepared to write rape, non-con, or anything too graphic, but I will write any pairing so long as the characters are not minors involved in an explicit sexual relationship or relatives in a romantic pairing. Also, I'm not adverse to AU-ing the hell out of it. Check me out at my LJ page. I'm fast, weird, and will usually write over what I'm paid to do.

Habitat for Humanity, Human Rights Campaign, Kiva, Heifer International [10 Nov 2009|08:44pm]

(Just saw this community and thought it was an awesome idea!)

[ETA]: Fixed the links!

I'll offer fic in return for donations to Habitat for Humanity, Human Rights Campaign, Kiva, or Heifer International. I'd definitely recommend Kiva for people who don't really have enough money to donate - it's an organization where you choose a businessperson in a developing company and sponsor or help sponsor a loan. And since it's a loan, you get repaid, so you can lend the money out again! Very cool.

Anyways - I've written Buffy, Angel, and Dollhouse fic. I can also write Dr. Horrible or Firefly fic - although I haven't seen Serenity yet, so not that. I haven't written for either of those fandoms before, however.

(And I'm open to pretty much any pairing or prompt or whatever you can throw at me.)

Unfortunately I'm a kind of slow writer, and I'm co-modding an awards site right now, so either you ask for it now and get it later or just come back later and ask. It's all good.

I guess I'll copy someone else and say that each 100 words is $1 more.

I'm open to suggestions if you'd like to suggest other charities or dollar amounts - never done this before.

Amnesty Donation [18 Jan 2008|03:57pm]

I'll write fic for any of the fandoms listed below if you donate.

Comment with the fandom/pairing/character, rating (I don't write smut!) and a prompt or short scenario and I'll get started. It could take anything from a few days to a few weeks for me to finish.

(If there's another fandom - see my profile page for all of my fandoms - that you'd like me to try, let me know and I'll consider it.)

Ficlet (500 words) = $5
Fic (1000 words) = $10

($1 per 100 words)

Comic strips in return for Amnesty donation [28 Aug 2007|10:01pm]

I will make four-panel pixel art comic strips for the fandom of your choice in return for a donation to Amnesty International: $2 per strip is probably fair, right?

I can make a strip for any fandom if you tell me what you want the characters to say, or I can come up with my own dialogue if you give me a scenario from a fandom I'm familiar with.

That would be:
Harry Potter
Pirates of the Caribbean
Lord of the Rings
Heroes (although, okay, I haven't seen the final four episodes yet)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer / Angel
Sherlock Holmes

You can see my bi-weekly comic strip here, or in large print here. Some of the strips that I've done for fandoms are here, the first two being a little older and slightly different.

Tell me if I've done this wrong :)

Vid request [12 Sep 2006|12:45am]

Anybody out there interested in making me a Spike/Drusilla vid to INXS' Never Tear Us Apart?

I have a hankering for one. Donation to cause of your choice (though Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, or the Red Cross would be high on my personal list, if any of those are acceptable to you.)

Indonesia Earthquake Relief [29 May 2006|11:47am]

Hi! I'd love to write fics or make graphics in exchange for donations to the Indonesia Quake relief.

Send me images, text that you would like, and what color scheme that you want or just tell me the pairing and fandom and I'll just run with it. The going rate seems to be a $1 for icons (I can't do animated) and $5 for wallpapers and banners. Here are some examples of my work Wallpapers and Icons.

I write in the following fandoms; BtVS, AtS, Harry Potter, Charmed, Tru Calling, Veronica Mars, Supernatural, Narnia, and The Mummy. I'm very flexible in pairings, I only decline to write sibling/parent incest and chan. Threesome are fine. Crack!fics are cool, too as well as crossovers. If you want me to have Darla and Angelus meet up with the first Halliwell women before having a threesome with young Dumbledore then that is super. Or if you just want me to turn Dean into a cat and Sam into a girl then way to go, I'll write it. Both of those would be fun. Slash, femslash, het, and gen are all spectacular. Any genre is good, I like adventure fics a lot. I've written Oz/Ethan, Eve/Dawn, Ardeth/Evie, The Seer/Leo, Tru/Jack, and Ginny/Oliver so I can write non-canon pairings. Take a look at my fanfic goods, fanfic. $1 for every 100 words.

Website Layout and Coding
If you have a personal site that you would like to spiff up then I can help you. I've been fiddling with websites since 1999! I like using PHP (but if you have Geocities or the like PHP won't work) and I can make graphics. I can help you set up a easy stylesheet with directions that will show you how to change the layout yourself. After I finish your layout, I'll load you up with links to tutorial sites that can help you learn more HTML. All I ask on this one is just a note that I made it. Check out mycollective. That would be like a $15 sort of thing.

Donations can go to the Red Cross.

Indonesia quake relief [28 May 2006|11:23pm]
Will make textless icons from images you provide for any fandom. If you can't provide images, I can still do icons for any character(s) from the following:

Show/movie listCollapse )

$1 for stills (if you want animated, let's talk about the complexity before setting donations). For examples, here are my icons. Alternately, I can do wallpapers for any of the above shows/movies, or a wallpaper based on images you send me, for $5.

For fic, I can do up to ~500 word stories in the following fandoms (ordered by most comfortable w/canon to least comfortable). Slash, gen, parody, het, whatever, any rating. Going rate of $1/100 words, any characters/pairing/threesome/other unless noted:

List of fandomsCollapse )

Any crossover of the above fandoms is also doable. Haven't actually done Firefly ever, but fic samples for the others:

Indonesia Earthquake Relief [28 May 2006|09:05am]

[ mood | creative ]

I’m coming out of a self imposed writing hiatus because entrenous88 pointed out the need for donations for the relief efforts helping the victims of the earthquake in Indonesia.

For examples of my writing, see here.

I have previously written fic for charity, see an example here.

I can write in these fandoms:

Harry Potter,
The OC,
Velvet Goldmine.

Het, slash, gen, whatever floats your boat. Your request can be as vague as a pairing and a prompt word or you can feed me a detailed plot bunny that you’ve wanted to read for ages. Alternatively you could ask for an update on a WIP or 'verse (see here). Anything goes!

Drabble - $1 (you could request a series of drabbles, $1 per 100 words)
Ficlet (500 words) = $5
Short Fic (1000 words) = $10
WIP or 'verse update = $10
Long Fic (2000 words or more) = Totally negotiable.

Please make all donations to Red Cross or Unicef. Thanks!

writing offer in exchange for/support of your relief donation [27 May 2006|11:39pm]

I will write Buffyverse drabbles (100 words) or short fics (1,000 to 2,000 words) in exchange/support of donations made to the relief efforts helping the victims of the earthquake in Indonesia.

I'd ask that you donate $1 per 100 words. So that's $1 per drabble, $10 per 1,000 words, $20 per 2,000 words. The drabble request is flexible -- if you'd like to donate $5, I could write you 5 drabbles with a variety of themes of your choice, or all with a shared pairing or character focus or theme. $10 would get you 10 drabbles, and so on.

Make a request including character-focus and/or pairing, rating, and preferred elements/scenarios. Depending on requests, it may take several weeks for me to complete your fic. One caveat -- no Xander-in-Africa fics. It's a worthwhile subject; I just can't write it.

Additionally, donations in exchange for updates to my WiPs or sequels to completed fics can be negotiated if you would like to request those -- please comment and we'll work out details.

Examples of my writing may be found here.

Please make donations specifically designated for the Indonesia relief efforts to either the International Response Fund of The Red Cross or UNICEF.

Buy my fic [27 May 2006|10:13pm]

I will write Joss-verse fic for you if you donate. Pick your pairing and as many details as you like. I tend to write beyond the limits of wordage per dollar, so just donate what you can and I'll write.

Earthquake In Indonesia [27 May 2006|02:36pm]

A massive earthquake struck Indonesia earlier this morning, leaving as many as 3,000 people dead and over 2,500 people wounded.

Basic information regarding the disaster can be found at CNN's initial report: Indonesia Struck By Catastrophic Quake, and at the BBC's coverage here: Indonesia Quake Toll Passes 3,000

Some countries have already committed to aid packages, but of course more money will be needed as survivors continue to be discovered, field hospitals become filled with patients, and the after-effects of the calamity go into motion (food, shelter, need for medical supplies and upkeep of safe havens for displaced persons). Medical care teams are already swamped by demand, and patients are being treated and kept outside because there is no bedspace.

Additionally, it is possible that volcanic activity may be set into motion by the quake, and if that occurs inevitably there will be more property damage, more victims, more need for care and comfort. Even without that potential outcome, a number of buildings are threatening to partially collapse or crumble because structures have been severely damaged by the quake.

Please consider some ways you might help:

  • Offer to donate with a request for particular fannish or other output: i.e., you will donate some set amount for every fic written with a request given by you, etc. This encourages your contribution, and allows fans who cannot offer money themselves to help in the relief efforts.

  • Offer fannish creations in exchange for donations -- fic, icons, graphics, mood-themes, essays, drabbles, etc.

  • Offer other materials/contributions in exchange for donations: crafts projects, fan materials like comics or DVDs to people who will donate for them, non-fandom icons and graphics, etc.

  • Make a donation directly to charitable organizations: Among other relief organizations, the Red Cross, UNICEF, and other NGO are already helping or rushing to be part of the relief efforts.

  • Urge politicial response by contacting representatives in your countries and areas and ask them to increase aid to this region -- right now the United States has pledged only $100,000, but may be persuaded to donate more as news continues to be updated.

If needed, a master-list of offers to donate as well as offers to create/give in response to donation will be created. Please watch this community for a chance to help.

E.T.A. Any offers should be made as separate posts to the community, rather than in comments. That way, people will see what you are willing to donate or write/make for charity. Thanks!
