I'm offering fic for the  [ profile] help_japan  auction over at LJ. My auction post can be found here; bidding will remain open until 26 March.


Details of my offer:

You can see things I've created at:

I am offering: Two (2) fanfics of at least 1000 words each.

Babylon 5 (Narn/Centauri arc a specialty, for other parts of canon please ask before bidding as my knowledge of those is a lot shakier)
Twin Peaks (mainly Cooper and Albert, for others please ask)
Star Trek TOS (gen, any characters)
Lost (I've written Ben, Locke and Rousseau before, for others please ask)

And as I mentioned here earlier, if there are any fandoms I haven't written in before but that you think I can pull off and you'd like to see me try, please feel free to ask; we can discuss and/or haggle. :)

Additional Info:
I'd be happy to write gen in any fandom. For slash and het I'd prefer to stick to my usual pairings: I can do Londo/G'Kar, Londo/Timov (well, probably Londo/anybody except Vir :) ) and Lyta/G'Kar from Babylon 5, plus Cooper/Albert from Twin Peaks. If you have another pairing in mind, feel free to PM me to ask and I'll give you an honest answer as to whether I think I can pull it off for you. I'd prefer no crossovers or AUs, mpreg, extreme kink or noncon/rape, and will not write character bashing. My stories are usually character-driven and pretty faithful to canon, with angst and h/c being my main genres - I love shades of grey and complicated character interactions! But if you'd prefer something lighter or more humorous I'll gladly cater to your preferences too! I do work better if I have a concrete prompt to go by, so please provide one if you end up winning; or we can discuss your wishes afterwards via email. I'll definitely try to write you something as tailormade as possible! As for delivery date, if I can finish your story by end of May I will definitely do so, but end of June will probably more realistic due to real life obligations.

Starting Bid: 5 USD for each.


Auctions are being hosted both at  [ profile] help_japan (Livejournal) and  [community profile] help_japan (Dreamwidth); there is also a Delicious account where you can browse through the various offers.

News about Japan keeps rolling in and is sounding no less worrisome than yesterday: not only is a nuclear facility threatened but apparently an entire village as well as several trains are still off the radar? *gulps* The sheer scale of this simply defies anyone's imagination. Sending much love and good thoughts to everyone living near the stricken area and/or having family members or friends who live there!

I just discovered that a fandom auction is going to be hosted over at [community profile] help_japan (Dreamwidth) and [ profile] help_japan (Livejournal). The Dreamwidth site also encourages donations for the March 10 earthquake in Yingjiang, Yunnan, China; the Livejournal site seems to be focusing on donations to Japan only. Bidding on both sites opens on March 14; the DW site is already open for offers, the LJ site will put up its offering posts on Monday. 

I'll definitely be offering up fic for auction, and will be posting my offer on the LJ site after they've opened. As usual, this involves some fretting about what exactly to offer. It's not that I'm not willing to step outside my comfort zone for a good cause, but if someone is going to be paying good money for a fic, I don't want to risk not being able to deliver what they requested. So I'll probably be keeping my actual offering post pretty restrictive in terms of fandoms and characters, just to be on the safe side.

However, if any of you flistees would be considering to place a bid, I'd be happy to dicuss any requests over here - no obligations, of course! But I do trust you guys to know by now what I'm comfortable writing, or at least to be aware of what you'd be signing up for, so I'd definitely be less gun-shy about stepping out of that comfort zone. I'll write any character I've written before, and might be able to write other characters and/or fandoms depending on the details. Gen is usually a safer bet with me than slash or het, but again, it depends on the characters. If I don't feel I can do a certain fandom or character justice I'll tell you in all honesty, but feel free to ask. I'd also be game for doing some kind of exchange, if you'd like; say, I write something you request, you write something I request, and I'll match whatever bid you make.

Real life (if it ever was gone) strikes again: planning for The House We Bought continues, and after holidays and two blessedly quiet weeks of courses, work is also back with a vengeance. All of which I penitently offer as excuse for my lack of both posting and reading/commenting. (Basically, those stolen half-hours on the train to work are all I have for now, so it boils down to either reading some fic, or writing some, but seldom both. And as I don't want to give up the writing - well. *sighs*)

Which is why, in compensation, I offer you - drabbles! Because I haven't written any yet, and dearly want practice; and because a few half-hours on the train seem perfect for the format. So: drabbles!

As for the type of drabbles on offer: it recently hit me that nearly all my stories are either gen, or gen with UST, or have a very mild sexual sheen, but few of them actually are about sex, and I'd like to remedy that. So I would like to put out a call for drabble prompts, in any of my preferred fandoms (doesn't need to be one I've written in before), that are in some way related to the sexual. I'm not saying I'm going to write hard R, because I almost certainly won't (so please don't make your prompt too explicit or too kinky, or you'll risk me getting stuck), but I'd love to tackle the theme and see what I can do with it.

Your prompt can be anything: word, sentence, description; all I ask is that you pick a pairing you think I have some affinity for. Again, doesn't need to be an ├╝ber-favorite for that - but please, don't ask for Harry/Snape, or Delenn/G'Kar, or - well, those kinds. *g*. If you're not sure about a pairing, just ask in the comments. If it turns out I can't wrap my head around it, I'll just come ask you for another one - but I do promise I'll give it my best shot. So please, fire away!

And - oh, if anyone would prefer a gen drabble after all, feel free to ask that, too! I'm not in any way making demands here. :)

ETA: I'm not making any promises about timing (still some other stuff on the table too - haven't forgotten you, [ profile] mithen!), because I can't, really. It'll be finished when it'll be finished. Hope you're okay with that. :)
