Organizing to Help Victims of Australia's Fires

Sticky Post
Hi everyone!

This community is intended to be a gathering place for anyone who is offering crafts, fic or anything else via auction or simple sale, in return for donations to assist those displaced by the brushfires in Australia. Membership and posting are open, so please list your items here or post a link to your own journal.

Fic offers, cross-posted from my journal
Molesworth the Hufflepuff
My offers

1: Up to five ficlets (100-500 words) for $5 each (AUD, equivalent to about £2.30 or just over USD 3). Will be completed by the end of April 2009.

2: One full-length story, 4,000 words minimum. Most of my HP stories tend to be closer to 10,000 words than 4,000, but stories in other fandoms may be shorter. This story will go to the highest bidder at 12 midday on Saturday 21 February (starting bid AUD 10). It will be finished by the end of April 2009.

Fandoms: Harry Potter, Young Wizards series, Lord Peter Wimsey, the Anne of Green Gables books, Sadler's Wells series, The Book Thief, His Dark Materials; I might also be persuaded to do something for Discworld or The Dark is Rising.

As for the kind of things I write: I'm happy with either gen or romance, not so hot on PWP, and am best at angst, character studies and sometimes plot - but I'll have a shot at anything in this case. My writing can be found under the fic tag at my journal.

If you win the auction or request a ficlet, I will ask you to donate the funds to any legitimate organisation currently collecting funds for bushfire relief in Victoria and email me a receipt. Then we can discuss the request/what you want from the story.

Please bid or make requests here on my journal. To keep things simple, bids are in Australian dollars. is a useful currency converter.

Fic offers
Reposted from my personal journal here.

I know money is tight for a lot of people right now. Believe me, I know. But I want to do something, anything for the victims of the Australian bush fires. From my place here in the land of the ice and snow, I can't really donate any money myself.

What I can do, though, is write fic.

So I'm putting out a blanket announcement: I will write a gift fic of at least 1,000 words for anyone who donates at least AUD$25 to Red Cross Bushfire Appeal or another credible charity organization (local SPCA, Salvation Army, whatever). For reference, that's about USD$16 or €12. I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but think of it this way: how much does a sandwich and a bottle of water cost? Soap, toothpaste and shampoo? A package of clean underwear? A sack of cat food? Any amount is more than nothing, and some of these people have lost everything. (Not to mention all the animals with nowhere to go.)

So if you can email me some kind of confirmation of your donation (mad_maudlin @ livejournal . com) I'll write you a fic of your choosing. Fandoms I'm willing to have a go on include The X-Files, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Torchwood, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate: SG-1, Firefly, Night Watch: Nochnoi Dozor, Good Omens, Discworld, Sanctuary, The Dark Tower, A Song of Ice and Fire, Chronicles of Narnia...oh, hell, it might be easier to just try me with a prompt and I'll tell you if I can manage it. Or if you want a sequel/prequel/missing moment/companion/remix of any of my other fics, ask for that too.

It'll all be on a first-come, first-served basis, and I won't cap the offer until/unless I get eleventy jillion responses. It's also not limited to members of my flist. Just so you know.

Every Little Bit Helps!
This offer is now closed!

Huge thanks to solostforever, lilysaid, and nursedarry!!! Together we raised $40 - $15 more than the goal!

Your generosity will be appreciated, ladies! Let's keep the ball rolling! :D

Cumulative Auction for Fic
Austen girls
Hi guys,

I'm running a cumulative fic auction. I'm offering 5,000+ words for the winning bid. Multiple people can bid on favourite ideas - the idea is that hopefully lots of smaller bids can add up to something respectable. Multiple people donate a small amount and all get the fic they'd love to read.

I will write in:

Bandom (any of Panic, Fall Out Boy, My Chem, Cobra, TAI or The Cab)
Harry Potter
Hikaru no Go
Prince of Tennis (Seigaku, Hyotei, Rikkei or Fudomine - I can't keep track of the others)
Any other Diana Wynne Jones world except Dalemark and Homeward Bounders
Obernewtyn Chronicles

You can also bid on a list of my own plot bunnies over there.

Bid and More Info

I love this community! I didn't know it existed until someone told me to cross-post here ♥

Pirates of the Caribbean
Stargate Atlantis

BIDDING BEGINS TODAY, 2/12 AND ENDS 2/15 AT 6:00 PM California time.



Icon offers.
[ books ] book love
Examples of my icon-making are at heathermacicons.

My offer:

20 batches of icons. $5 each. This way I can fill multiple requests. They'll all be done by the end of March.

Order-taking ends at midnight eastern (because that's 8pm here in Alaska so I'll still be up).

My fandoms that I already have multiple images for are American politics, punditry (real and fake news), Sailormoon, Gundam Wing, Jonny Quest TRA, Stargate, Star Trek (all series), and Battlestar Galactica. I also have a plethora of stock icons.

I'll do icons of other fandoms if you'll point me in the direction of good images for those icons.

I don't add words to my icons because the programs I use for iconning are GIMP and MS Paint, and I can't do wording on GIMP (all I can do with GIMP is resize and gaussian-blur images) and MS Paint messes up the whole images when I add text to it (see icon). But I don't mind my icons being used as bases and altered. :)

Also, please let me know if I can post the commissioned images to my icon comm or not. Thanks!

P.S. I'll donate $50 for a 5,000+ word fic of the Star Trek: The Next Generation slash pairing Data/Geordi La Forge, or the Stargate: SG-1 pairing Dainel Jackson/Teal'c.

ETA: Well, that's it then.

The request must be harry/potter other than that I will do any pairing/rating.  If you hate me but love Australia, I will even write Harry/Ginny.

Fic-for-Donations: Torchwood, Doctor Who, Being Human
invisible lift - default
I'm doing a fic-for-charity drive, and one of my chosen charities is the Australian Red Cross. You can find the info post here.

The way it works is that your donation sponsors a fic. I'll write it in your honor and credit you when it posts (unless you prefer to remain anonymous). There are a handful of stipulations (I need some proof of your donation, and some proof that you're old enough to read the naughty stuff), but that's all explained in the post.

What I have available (as of this posting) are three more $25 story sponsorships. $25 will net you 500+ words, and you've got the option of choosing among a group of prompts. I write mostly Torchwood, but am up for writing Doctor Who and Being Human fic as well.

Another fiction-donations exchange
[medieval] writer
I am a writer in a relatively small, still-growing fandom (the BBC's Merlin), but I am offering to write one 5k+ piece of fiction for the highest bidder in the next 48 hours.

As per marguerite_26's example, on February 14, 15.00 GMT, I will ask that bidder to any legitimate non-profit charity currently collecting funds to be used for Australian bushfire relief and email me the receipt.

I am happy to write in any fandom mentioned here; if you have a fandom with a source text that one could get acquainted in in less than a week (a book or a film, for example), I'm happy to write you something in that fandom, as well.

I will have the piece of fiction ready for the bidder by mid-March.

Please comment here if you'd like to bid.
