Lightning Round

ETA: All future posts in the Lightning Round are screened as of the morning of Monday, January 25 (a certain mod's internet connection went out last night, meh). You can still reply to Offerors and Bidders whose posts are already up on the comm, and they will get notifications, but will not be able to reply here. Therefore, please take all conversations going forward into PMs or email.

We will be hosting another Lightning Round here at help_haiti from Thursday, January 28th through Saturday, January 30th at 3:59pm, PST, in tandem with LJ's V-Gift-a-Thon, when they will be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from all vgift sales to CARE and UNICEF (LJ will even cover the credit card processing fees). It's also a good way to send paid time to friends, because for each $10 you receive in vgifts during the V-Gift-a-Thon, if you have any account type other than Permanent, you'll get two months of paid account time. We request (but cannot mandate) that all donations made during the second Lightning Round be done in the form of V-Gifts.

Let us know here if you have any questions.

[The original Lightning Round post is below.]

A few people have noted that they will be out of town or busy after the auction closes, but will have time to get creative this weekend.

This post is for them to offer creativity, in a sort of "Buy It Now" kind of way.

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) 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.
Donation Minimum: $5

Note: Since I will be traveling over the weekend, it's going to have 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. You can ask people to forward you 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 - whatever works for you.

Please only offer if you'll be able to finish and deliver your works on or before January 22; otherwise, the standard auctions should be ok for you.

An update via somnolentblue:

More evidence that fandom can be amazing:
-272 offerings bookmarked on del.icio.us [as of January 17 at 7:45 PM Easter Standard Time]
-628 fandom tags
-53 artists
-223 authors
-3 vidders
-9 people offering other goodies

User Name: shanaqui/edenbound
Email address: thebrightspark(at)gmail(dot)com.
You can see things I've created at: edenbound

I am offering: comment fic. Which probably means 500 words or so.

Fandoms: Supernatural (up to S4), Firefly, The Dark is Rising, GetBackers, Kingdom Hearts (excepting 358/2), Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy X-2, Due South. If you find another fandom we have in common, e.g. from looking at my ficjournal, poke me and check and I might be able to write for that too. The aforementioned are my comfort zone, though.

Additional Info (optional): I write a pretty big range of things. Het, slash, femmeslash and gen, the works, and I can be convinced to write even quite off-the-wall pairings. I write quite a bit of BDSM based kink, crossdressing kink, I've done genderswitch, I like AU... You can PM me or email me to check whether I'll write something you have in mind.

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: $5, five offered. (For now.)

(I also have a thread for bidding on longer stories. Here.)

Edited at 2010-01-14 02:18 am (UTC)

$5 for some Sam and Dean in child/teenagerhood? :)

(Deleted comment)
SPN RPS Jared/Jensen fic - $5 donated (Is Doctors W/Out Borders ok? I don't do the Red Cross.)

I will e-mail you the confirmation.

Fandoms: Bandom (in this case Cobra Starship and The Hush Sound), Harry Potter, Disney.

Additional Info (optional): I write VickyT/Greta, Draco/Harry, AlbusSeverus/Scropius, Demi Lovato/ Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato/ Miley Cyrus.

User Name: aohatsu
Email address: aohatsu@livejournal.com
AIM/Gtalk: aohatsu@livejournal.com; aohatsu@gmail.com
You can see things I've created at: blue_scribbles - Make sure you look at the more recent stuff for an idea of my current skills.

I Am Offering: Fic. For every dollar donated I'll write 100 words. Thus, if you donate $1, you get a 100-word drabble, and if you donate $25, you get 2,500-word fic. Will take 1-2 days to finish fic, depending on the length. Proof of donation should be sent to aohatsu@livejournal.com or provided here.

Fandoms: Ask and I shall tell you if I can write it for you, as I've been involved in many fandoms. But your best bets right now are: Star Trek: TOS, Supernatural, RPS. There is an incomplete list of my fandoms here.

Additional Info (optional): Once you've made the donation, and given me proof, tell me the fandom and pairing you want. If you include an under-ten-words prompt, I'll love you forever. The only kink I won't fill is underage sex. Everything else is on the table, and I'll write ANY pairing you can think of so long as I know who the characters are. Will also write gen.

Donation Minimum/Number of Items Offered: $1 per 100 words, Unlimited until further notice.

Don't be shy! Go go go! Haiti needs you! ♥

I donated $35 to Doctors Without Borders - have forwarded my confirmation e-mail to you.

How do you feel about writing RENT fic? Mark and Roger, first meeting and/or moving in together (gen or light slash).

If not, then Star Trek: I'd love to see an expansion on any of the scenarios you mentioned in this paragraph of Multi-Colored Lights on That Old White Fence:

The two-day shore leave on Earth came four days before Christmas, and while most everyone is happy about being home so close to the holidays--just long enough to be with their families for a few hours, or maybe a day, if they lived close enough--most of them are annoyed to be leaving the day before Christmas. Jim knows Uhura is still hugging her little brothers--three of them!--good-bye, and that Chekov wasn't able to make the trip to Russia, but that his Grandmother came to see him in San Francisco, while Sulu spent the trip at his father's grave, because the Enterprise hadn't been anywhere near Earth when the notification had reached them. He wasn't sure how Scotty spent his time, but he knew Bones' wife had adamantly refused to let Jo come see her father, and had planned on drinking the two days away until an unexpected video call came through from the a public library in Kansas, and Bones had spent four hours talking about ponies and horses and unicorns to his little girl through a computer screen, buying and mailing her a white cowgirl's hat with a pink engraving that read 'Jo' at the local shopping center before they had to leave.

(But most especially the Sulu or Bones ones, possibly with bridge crew bonding.)

(Deleted comment)
Hi! I donated $5 [screenshot]. The fandom we share is Primeval. I adore Claudia/Helen and Connor/Stephen, so anything featuring either or both of those pairings would be great :) I haven't seen S3. And I love drabbles, so no pressure to go more towards 1,000w unless you're so inspired.

You can see things I've created at: my tags index

I am offering: Ficlets of at least 50 words (though they may go longer, obviously).

Fandoms: Whatever's listed in my tags (or, if you're okay with it falling more towards the 50w end, there's a list of fandoms I'm at least somewhat familiar with here) is fair game. Psych, The Chronicle, Survivors and True Blood are my most recently viewed canon.

You can see things I've created at: my fiction masterlist.

I am offering: Drabbles of at least 500 words exclusively for the reinventing 'love verse.

Fandoms: CW RPF.

Additional Info: I will write a timestamp with a minimum of 500 words set in the love 'verse. Conditons: It must take place in the timeline already established between things like chemistry and the lights and buzz. Nothing set in the future. (Mainly because I am working on another installment and I don't want anything to clash.) I will write already established pairings. (No hooking up anyone that isn't already hooked up.)

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: I will do five of these for a $5 USD donation a piece.

Fandoms: Harry Potter, Merlin (BBC), Criminal Minds, Castle, Star Trek (reboot)

Additional Info (optional): I'll write het, gen, or slash, Merlin and Star Trek RPS, and am most comfortable with ratings up to and including R but am willing to write whatever you would like most!

Donation Minimum/Number of items offered: At least $5. I'm offering 5 ficlets.

This late in the lightning round, are you still up for writing? If so, I'll donate $5 right away, and request Colin/Bradley in Arthur's bed on-set, please -- as high a rating as you feel like writing.
