Truthfully, things, busy schedule wise, have not entirely cleared up for me, STILL, no, and thus my time is not as vast as I would prefer.
However, it has opened up a little bit, and become a bit more lax as of late; and, given that writing is my absolute passion (even above drawing, yes), hobby, and profession, I've been experiencing massive withdrawals for a few months, now (BECAUSE of my ridiculously busy schedule)!
I cannot guarantee that I would be able to get to every last commission request I might receive, especially since the free time I do have I've been trying to work more diligently upon my fantasy novel (which seems never-ending, and, worse yet, stubborn by way of 'good ol' Writer's Block' -_- ), but I will nonetheless do my part to honor any agreement contracted.
Now, with all that having been said, here is my list of what I will be willing to write about (and, please note that if it is NOT listed, it is generally speculated that that is because I DON'T/WON'T do it...that, and I probably forgot it
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------AS OF JANUARY 2013: FANFICTION
COMMISSION REQUESTS, ONLY. (While I might be willing in the near future to expand, and also include original/short stories, as well, for now it is not an option, because if I attempted to, then I'd be ending up writing yet ANOTHER novel on top of my own. )
--------- WHAT I ('AUTOMATICALLY,' AND CURRENTLY) OFFER: STORY TYPE (for now): Oneshots
(or a story which receives its conclusion by the first chapter). STORY LENGTH (for now):
For my own personal stories (which usually tend to specialize within drama, action/adventure, crossovers, and/or humor, alongside general fantasy), I tend to do (and honestly prefer
) long, or longer chapters (for multi-chapters), though I do do this, really, without trying. For oneshots, as well, if I do them for myself, they can sometimes range between over 2,000, to a little over 6,000 words, sometimes even 10,000 (as was the case for a recent commission).
For your story, I honestly suspect it to be around the same length, if it is a oneshot, and most probably near doubled that if it is a twoshot. FANFICTION FOCUSES: Anime, Books, Cartoons, Video Games, TV Shows, Movies GENRE(S): Action/Adventure, Drama, Angst
(pre-teen, teen, young adult, etc), Fantasy
(magic/sorcery, mythical creatures, etc), Humor, Friendship, Romance
(regardless of preference), Crossovers, Family
(mother/daughter bonding, etc), and Epistolary
(in this specific case, diary entries). RATINGS (courtesy of 'FanFiction.Net,' to make my life easier ): K+
(or, for ages 9 and up, and free of any coarse language, violence, and adult themes), T
(or, for ages 13 and up, and with minor action violence, however without serious injury. This may also contain mild, coarse language, but does not contain any adult themes), M
(or, for ages 16 and up, and with some violence, minor coarse language, and minor suggestive adult themes) LANGUAGE (READING WISE):
English POINT OF VIEW:
First, or Third Person Narrative
----- WHAT I (CURRENTLY, ALTHOUGH MOST PROBABLY PERMANENTLY) DON'T OFFER: Explicitly Sexual Content
(which would be, I suppose, the equivalent of watching a "leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination" pornography). Please Note:
It is not that I cannot write such pieces, but merely that I prefer not to, as often stated within various FanFiction of my own. I enjoy being expressive through my writing in other manners, and feel all the more inspired and creative when I am allowed to do so. (This, and also because the general age range of those who read my FanFiction tend to be that of young teenagers. And while, no, this is not naivety, or a 'babying,' belittling issue, I suppose it is one of personal upbringing, and my having not been generally allowed or expected to immerse myself within either category around that age.) Explicitly Coarse Language
(which would be pretty much every sort of profanity you could think of to get your grandmother to blush). 'Crackfics'
(which would be a story purposefully set up to be perceived as unbelievable and/or insane while reading, with the end result to having done so usually one of extreme humor . . . and headaches). Script/Chat Format
I wonder if Greg made it home all right. LISA:
I'm sure he did, don't worry. ) Nothing BUT Dialogue:
(where perhaps maybe one, or two sentences will be dedicated to the scene's description and setting, and then the remainder will be filled with nothing but back and forth dialogue. Example:
I watched as Dad walked through my bedroom door.
"Did you do your homework yet?"
"Yes, Dad, I did."
"Before you got home."
"And your chores?"
"Also finished." )
---(Considering you are paying me for your story's 'birth,' this one in particular is a good thing.)
----- WHAT I WOULD NEED FROM YOU, THE BUYER: YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS FOR WHEN THE STORY IS COMPLETE
(Please refer to 'How to Contact/Hire Me'
for proper details) FEATURED SERIES, CROSSOVER SERIES, AND RATING:
Obviously, I will need to know for which series I am writing.
I am rather eclectic by nature, and although I do not truthfully watch a whole lot of television any longer (versus reading), if your chosen series originally hails from there, I still know/know of/like (or even dislike
) a good many existing series, all the same. (This, and I had been a '90's Kid,' as well as possessing two older siblings who grew up -- And thus, me, as well -- watching old school classics such as "Thundercats" )
If your story idea consists of more than one series, please naturally indicate this, especially if it is a MULTI-crossover. Please Note:
IF, however, your series is one that I am not honestly familiar with, or one I have never read/watched, while I would still be willing to at least take a crack at it, I will most probably have to decline the commission, as I do not wish to provide inadequate service. FEATURED CANON/FAN-CHARACTERS, AND THEIR BACKSTORIES:
Naturally, I will need every last detail you have in mind for your fanfiction IDEA, including basics such as which characters will be involved, your genre choice, time setting (prequel, during, sequel, etc), and whether your tale is canon-based (happenings within whatever series 'universe'/'world' which has been accepted as "official"), or alternate universe/'A.U.', as it sometimes referred to as (for example, if a canon series character had perished by its overall conclusion, however was either somehow revived or had never expired in the first place), as well as out of character/'O.O.C.' possibilities (a normally moody character is suddenly cheerful, and vice versa, etc).
Also, please inform me ahead of time if an inclusion of yours or another person's fan-character(s) is/are to be had, and naturally provide any/all details surrounding said character(s) (even any drawings you, or someone else has done based upon them! This can be provided just in case you may not be terribly great at describing them through writing, at least physical wise. Regardless, I have very sharp visualization, so you needn't worry
If you do NOT have all that much information to yield, but would still like to see your general idea be brought to life, don't fret. So long as you have that small kernel in mind, then I can and will run with it and go from there.
I do prefer flexibility, in truth; however, I will not deviate from the story's main focus.
----- HOW TO CONTACT/HIRE ME (AS IT PRESENTLY STANDS):
Please do not leave a comment, one detailed (about your story idea), at least, on my front page, or within this journal. My Feedback Messages section is truly swamped enough as it is, and try as I might to respond to every general comment I receive, I do sometimes get more than a little behind.
This being said, please, instead, :inote: me, with all of your ideas you may currently possess. Once this is done, if I accept, and thus, you explicitly agree to pay, our transaction has begun.
I will then proceed to write your one/twoshot within its entirety, but will only
back the first few paragraphs as your preview.
If it is to your satisfaction and everything is generally copacetic, you send over the correct payment amount, and then after your finished piece will be emailed to you as a PDF copy.
----- AMOUNT OF TIME UNTIL STORY'S COMPLETION (AS IT PRESENTLY STANDS - AS OF DECEMBER 2012):
Truly varies. However, normally, a story can be completed between a mere few hours, to two, three days, tops. I presently set the cut off time for seven to fourteen days from when I was first officially hired
(NOT first contacted) by you, mainly for extra leeway (although, even with the various 'goings on' within my life, separate to this, I doubt that much time will be necessary, given these will only be one/twoshots).
IF, though, for whatever reason I was unable to fulfill my part of the contract, be it sudden emergencies, or the time had gone well beyond the seven to fourteen days, maximum, then your story will no longer be written, and thus, you are no longer required to pay.
In any event, however, I will always be upfront with you about everything concerning this, be it whether or not I will be able to write your story at all (that is, if I know the series to begin with), or if I would have to place you within my 'pending pile' while I take care of another customer before you.
----- COSTS (AS OF JANUARY 2013): ONESHOTS: $5 (if between 2,000, to 5,000 words) / / $10 (if reaching 6,000, to 10,000 words)
----- PAYMENT, AND PROCEDURES (AS THEY ARE, PRESENTLY): PAYPAL
As it says on my front page (link here: sokai-sama.deviantart.com/
), I do not do point commissions. I've no personal need, nor desire for them. The only time I would be willing to 'bend' on this is if I were doing a donation pool, in order to in turn gift some of those points to others on here who might be in need.
I will most likely make a 'straight to the point' version of this listing, with a link added back to this one for newcomers.
For now, though, and in general, really, if any of this is a bit, or completely too complicated for you, then please do not hesitate to contact me in THAT regard, with any questions and concerns you may have!~ E
