Offered: Harry Potter Fanfic (Completion date of 14 February 2009 for GSM, with rel. offers): Sold!  
Because several people have emailed me to express their sadness/irritation over my not offering fic based on anything I've written or am writing, particularly with regard to my most popular work-in-progress, I've decided to offer for auction a completion date for Getting Severus Married (GSM is publicly posted here).

Offer: I will complete GSM by 14 February 2009. On that date, I'll update GSM's header in my journals and post GSM in my journals and at my archives, with a dedication to the winning bidder and mention of livelongnmarry in my author's notes.

Upon completion of GSM, I will write the winning bidder an expanded scene from GSM, or a short fic based on some part of GSM that he or she would have liked to have seen explored. The expanded scene or short fic will be at least 1000 words, and I will post it in my journals and at my archives with a dedication to the winning bidder and mention of livelongnmarry in my author's notes.

If the winning bid is $150 or more, I will post the chapters as I write them to my journals.

Note: What I will not do is alter GSM to suit the winning bidder's tastes; my offer is only for a completion date of 14 February 2009 and the related offers.

Contact: Send me a private message from my profile page.

Delivery: After the winning bidder emails me a screencap of his or her donation receipt (with all personal details obscured, of course), I will see to it that GSM is completed by 14 February 2009. The expanded scene from or short fic based on GSM will be written by 15 March 2009.

Minimum bid: $50

I'm also offering up for auction a fic you design and my August and October Daily Deviant fics.

For bidding on my auction, I'd like to offer you a drabble (or perhaps a ficlet; I'm bad about word count *g*). If you're interested, please prompt me with a pairing and three words, and I'll post your drabble or ficlet in my journals when it's written (and comment in reply to you here to let you know it's up).

Re: Let's go up to $60
This is so incredibly nice of you. For me, it'd be Snape/Harry, time-turner (is this one word?), number and, er, book. I'm really looking forward to getting to read more of GSM. It's a treat all around. :)
Thank you.

Okay, so make it $100
The released chapters have whetted my appetite.

I just love your writing.

Congratulations on winning my auction, and thank you for supporting livelongnmarry! Please don't forget to report your win and to email me proof of your donation. If you already have an idea for your "bonus" fic, please feel free to email me about it, as well; if not, we can wait until GSM is completed. Of course, I'll write your bonus fic after GSM is completed, and I will be posting new chapters of GSM beginning in November at the latest (I've got to complete my first three auction offers before I can work solidly on GSM).

I'm so excited to have a completion date for GSM; thank you so much for bidding!

Annie, I can't find your email address (and I'm never sure if people are keeping track of private messages via LJ or not), so I thought I'd contact you here. I wanted you to know that GSM is complete through Chapter Forty-Nine and plotted through Chapter Fifty (which is to be the last chapter, unless I write an epilogue). Chapter Fifty will be written by tomorrow's end, and then it will be sent to beta.

I apologise for starting to post chapters and then pulling them, but I wanted to avoid any continuity issues. Tomorrow, I will update GSM's header information and word count in the chapter entries, adjust the summary, and post Chapter Forty-One. My plan is to stagger the posting of the beta'd chapters (some of my betae have less time to edit than others), and then post the remaining ones at regular intervals so as not to overwhelm my flist. I hope that you enjoy what I've written; I've added about 45,000 words to the novel, and more are coming as I complete Chapter Fifty.

Thank you again for bidding on GSM's completion date, and as soon as you've read the story in its entirety, I look forward to hearing what you'd like to see in your bonus fic. :D Please feel free to email me if you have any questions (my user name @livejournal.com). *hugs*
