If you are posting a new Offering of Words, please post it on this thread. Do not re-post things you posted on the other thread - that one will stay live for new bids and comments.

If you have any questions, please do not ask them on this post - ask them here instead.


If you would like to offer words - fanfic, original fic, a printed book or printed fanfic, beta reading services, podficcing services, non-fanfic editing services or the like, please use the template below to offer your words or word-related services. If you're offering a story, feel free to provide a maximum and/or minimum word count.

Since we are going to have a second round of auctions later this winter, the goal for this round will be for things that can be delivered by February 14, although if you want to offer something with a later delivery date, please indicate that in the Additional Info section. Also, if you are offering more than one item, or would like to indicate a "reserve" of up to $50, please indicate so in the Additional Info section.

This auction will close on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at approximately noon Eastern Standard Time.

Email address: trialia at gmail dot com
YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): AIM - Angel Xanaveta; Gtalk as above.
You can see things I've created at: http://joyunending.net

I am offering: Drabbles/ficlets - 100-500 words; icons (non-animated).

Fandoms (if appropriate): Battlestar Galactica (2003), Final Fantasy (main series), Firefly, Sanctuary, early Stargate Atlantis, Wicked, Young Wizards [willing to attempt Vorkosiverse, Lost Odyssey, movieverse LotR, Harry Potter, Matrix]. Icons, anything at all that takes your fancy if you provide a picture, otherwise any character or pairing in the aforementioned fandoms.

Additional Info (optional): I'm in the process of moving house over the next couple of weeks (my first ever flat), so bidders may have to wait until the deadline for the fic, but it'll definitely be written - hence the word limit, as I am not good at writing fic any longer than this within a specified timeframe.

Starting Bid: $1.50 per item (to a total of 10 fics, 30 icons)

I'd like to bid for three drabbles/ficlets, one Firefly, one Wicked, one Vorkosiverse, offering $2 for each.

Looks like you're definitely going to get your fics unless I get a very unexpected mad bidding spree on this in the next four hours, so since I'm out for most of the rest of the day, I'll ask you now: anything specific you'd like in those fandoms? I know you 'ship Elphaba/Glinda for Wicked, but apart from that, I'm not sure. :)

:D Yay! I think your post kind of got buried.

Elphaba/Glinda is neato but not necessary. I haven't seen the musical so uh, I hope you were offering for bookverse. Either way, though, Elphaba's my favourite character in the book, so I'd love something about her. Beyond that, no real wishes.

Firefly: Zoe/Wash. Because, aw.

Vorkosiverse: Bel Thorne, prior to meeting Miles, or only just having met Miles.

Sound good? :)

Bookverse is fine :) I know both pretty well.

Never written Zoe/Wash or Bel before, but I can certainly have a go at them. :)

You won!

Once a winning bidder has sent you confirmation of his or her donation, we would really appreciate it if you visited the Donation Confirmation Station at http://community.livejournal.com/help_haiti/10005.html - it will really help with our record keeping and putting together the final tally.

If you have any questions, ask them here; if you haven't heard from the Winning Bidder by Sunday, and you've tried to contact him or her yourself, let us know there, too.
