Lightning Round II: V-Gift Boogaloo
gelgems circles, gelgems purple
heidi8 wrote in help_haiti
Two weeks ago, we raised nearly $7,000 in our first help_haiti Lightning Round - thank you so much to everyone who offered creative works, and everyone who donated.

We're going to do this Lightning Round very similarly - but there is one significant difference.

It would be ideal for donations to be made in V-Gifts!

Why? Because as of 4 PM today Pacific Standard Time, through Saturday, January 30th, 3:59pm, PST, LiveJournal has pledged to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from all vgift sales to CARE and UNICEF (we'll cover the credit card processing fees). And, remember, for each $10 you receive in vgifts during a two-week period, you'll get two months of paid account time.

Any V-Gift you send - whether to the Offeror, help_haiti or someone else - means that 100% of the amount you've spent on the V-Gift goes to UNICEF and CARE.

Yes, many of the v-gifts are $_.99 - for the sake of everyone's sanity, we are going to consider everything above X dollars and fifty cents to be rounded up to the next dollar.

(Just a side-note - you can also use V-Gifts throughout the V-Gift-a-Thon as a way to pay off any still-outstanding pledge from the regular auction; remember that pledges need to be paid and confirmed by February 5. Over 1700 bids have been confirmed so far!]

How does the Lightning Round work?

If you want to create drabbles or drawbles for the first X number of people who donate Y dollars (or the equivalent of your choice, directly to a charity or via V-Gifts) to one of the entities listed here, this is the place to offer your creativity!

How to Offer
Please list the type of item and fandom (if relevant) in the Subject to your post.

Paste the following into the Comment window and fill in the non-optional spaces.

Here's an example:

User Name: Fandomy Person
Email address: myname at gmail dot com
You can see things I've created at: Link to my personal LJ comm which has all my stuff at it
I am offering: Ficlets of approximately 100 words
Fandoms: Doctor Who, The Magicians, Tomorrow People, Spider Man (recent films), Sherlock Holmes (current movie), Avatar (the Cameron film, not the cartoon)
Additional Info (optional): If you ask for Doctor Who, I can only write New Who fics; interspecies fic is ok, especially in Avatar, but not in Holmes.
Number of Items Offered/Donation Minimum: Offering 5 drabbles/$3 minimum

How can I confirm a donation?

It worked remarkably well last time, so again, it is going to be up to the person making the offer to decide how he or she wants to confirm that the "donation minimum" has been, er, donated. If someone donates directly to a charity, the donor should forward to the Offeror a screencap with their address and portions of their name (such as everything but the first letter of their first and last name) blocked out, or forward a redacted version of their donation-confirming email, or a photo of the confirming text message; if someone donates in the form of V-Gifts , they can either send the v-gifts to the Offeror, or send the Offeror a link to the profile page of the person who you sent the V-Gifts to.

You said something earlier this week about donating anonymously. How can I do this?

Anon commenting will be turned on in this comm through January 31. If you want to pledge a donation anonymously in exchange for something offered, here's how you do it (with thanks to hh_kink for coming up with the how-to:

1. Go to the virtual gift store.
2. Click the "ADD" button over the Help Haiti V-gift (the giant red heart).
3. Enter either the Offeror's LJ username or help_haiti in the "To" field; we can't track things otherwise.
4. In the comment box, link to the thread for which you are donating. You must do this for each individual V-gift, even if you are donating multiple gifts for the same thing.
NB: If your thread url does not contain the string "?thread=(number)#t(number)" then you have the wrong url and we will not be able to match your donation. Go back to the thread for your prompt & click "THREAD" or "LINK" on the first comment. Copy that url. Then paste it into the browser.
5. Check 'send anonymously' (or not, if you prefer!)
6. If you send the V-Gift to the help_haiti comm, within 24 hours of the mods receiving notification of the V-gift, we will post a reply to the Offeror to let him or her know.

To make searching for offers easier, we're about to launch a nifty database, and you can also utilize the wonderfully tagged del.icio.us lists, too!

As always, Let us know here if you have any questions - or if you've made any icons or banners that say "Help_Haiti" and "Lightning Round 2: V-Gift Boogaloo"! Please do not post any questions as comments to this post.

You can see things I've created at: AO3|Fic Journal

I am offering: Drabbles and ficlets. 100 words per $1.00. You can choose if you want one longer ficlet or a bunch of drabbles.

Fandoms (optional) (characters/ships): Alice, Big Bang Theory, Nu!Doctor Who, Kings (Jack/David), Torchwood, Stargate Universe, Star Trek XI, or anything else I appear to have written for before. If you are unsure about a ship request, just ask.

Additional Info (optional): I will be taking only the first three requests. If I've got time, I'll take more later.

All kinks will be considered, but may be rejected (although that's highly unlikely).

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: $1.00 for 100 words

Re: Offer of Fic-Alice, TBBT

I would absolutely love something small for The Big Bang Theory - either something with Sheldon and Lexie (I adore Lexie's practical appliances of science) OR Sheldon and Leonard (Raj and Howard optional) discussing one of your SciFi fandoms.

User Name: latentfunction

You can see things I've created at: my fic tag.

I am offering: Fanfic of at least 1000 words, probably longer.

Fandoms (optional) (characters/ships):
Supernatural (Sam/Dean, canon pairings, gen)
CWPRF (J2, canon pairings, femmeslash, polyamory)
Leverage (Parker/Hardison, gen)
Prison Break (canon pairings, gen)
Dollhouse (canon pairings, gen)

Additional Info (optional): Timestamps, etc, for stuff I've already posted is fair game, so long as it's one of the above fandoms. Or, if you have something specific in mind for a fandom I used to write, you can ask about it. No guarantees about that, though.

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: Any donation; 4 fics offered.

For $6 may I have Sam/Dean with Dean being protective of Sam and fussing a lot. Why he's behaving like that is entirely up to you. It could be amusing if not even Sam is sure what's going on in Dean's head.

Let me know if this is okay and I'll send the vgift. :)

You can see things I've created at: my LJ, also slowly adding things to my AO3.

I am offering: Fic, gen or smut, your choice.

Fandoms (optional) (characters/ships):

Sailor Moon: I could write almost any combination of Senshi/Tuxedo Kamen/General (Kunzite[Malachite]/Zoicite/Jadeite/Nephrite). I've written everything from Uranus/Moon to Venus/Pluto. Slash, femmeslash, yaoi, yuri, het - it's all good. I could probably write an orgy with all 15 characters...though it might be logistically difficult in 250 words.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Sakura/Syaoran, Tomoyo/Sakura, Sakura/Tomoyo/Syaoran, Touya/Yue, Touya/Yukito, Fujitaka/Yue, Clow/Yue, Sonomi (Tomoyo's mom)/Nadesico, Fujitaka/Nadesico, Eriol/Tomoyo, Eriol/Syaoran, Eriol/Kaho...I've actually written a lot of these combinations already at one point or another. If you want something else, tell me and I'll tell you if I think I can make it happen.

Teen Titans Go!: Starfire/Robin, Starfire/Raven, Slade/Robin.

Marvel, 1602: "What happens next." You'd have to give me free reign on this one - I've had a bunny in my head ever since finishing the graphic novel. Would likely have some sweet Peter/Virginia, but other than that you'd have to let me see where it took me...just give me an excuse to write it! I think I could guarantee a minimum of 1000 words.

DC Universe, DC Animated Universe: Any combination of Dick Grayson/Jason Todd/Tim Drake/Stephanie Brown/adult!Damian/Kon-El. Any combination of Bruce Wayne/Clark Kent/Lois Lane/Wonder Woman. Any combination of Tim Drake/Kon-El/Bart Allen or Tim Drake/Kon-El/Cassandra Sandsmark. Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn, Batman/Catwoman, Dick Grayson/Barbara Gordon are all doable. Young Justice: Any combination of Anita Fite/Cissie King-Jones/Cassandra Sandsmark/Greta (Secret), or any of the YJ cast. I could also attempt to throw Roy Harper, Connor Hawke, or Cassandra Cain into the mix, though I am less certain of my ability to write them. CSAverse!Kon-El/Tim Drake is fine. Slash, het, femmeslash all okay. Tell me what you want, and I'll tell you if I can make it happen.

Marvel/DC: I've written Spiderman/Nightwing porn and I'm dying to write Peter Parker/Dick Grayson/Mary Jane. Give me a reason! Please! ^_^

Singin' in the Rain: Don/Cosmo/Kathy OT3!

Star Trek TOS (NOT nuTrek): McCoy/Spock

Anything I've written before is also up for grabs, including Eroica, Showdown in Little Tokyo, Disney, etc.

My specialty is sequels, so if you've written something and want a porny (or not-porny) sequel to it, link me and I'll tell you if I can do it.

Additional Info (optional):
You post what you want, with character or pairing or threesome or foursome or moresome. Please specify gen or smut and how many v-gifts you're willing to send (from 1-4), each .99 v-gift = 250 words. I'll write a story up to that length (if it's shorter, you can send fewer gifts, if it's longer, I won't ask for extra). You can send the gift after receiving the story, unless I start to run out of time, in which case I might ask you to send in advance.

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: One ninety-nine cent v-gift per 250 words.

Hmm, to be a hypocrite and get fic when I detest paying for fic even if it's charity, or get some Kings Among Runaways...

...I think I can be a hypocrite for my favorite series since my mom gave me $20 to donate however I want. XD Sooo, can has? <3?

User Name:tripperfunster

You can see things I've created at: My journal or deviantart:http://tripperfunster.deviantart.com/

I am offering: Five drawbles. These will be drawings that I will spend 10 min - 1/2 hour, depending on how much fun I'm having. Probably in ink, because that's my scribble of choice, but if you're dying for something else, let me know!

Fandoms (optional) (characters/ships): Any fandom, any prompt, any rating!

Additional Info (optional):My priority will be to finish the art promised to my 'real' art purchaser from the last auction, but drawbles are great to do while waiting at the DMV, or wherever, so depending on my free time, they may be finished very soon, or they may take a week or two.

Also: due to shipping costs, I don't intend to ship these, just post them. However, if you donate in V gifts, and 'gift' them to my eljay, I'll ship. Sound fair?

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered:5 drawbles, $10 each.
