Offered: donations for fic-links  
Since things seem somewhat informal this time around (and since I'm still working on the fics for my winning bidders), I thought I might offer donations in exchange for services, instead of the other way around.

Offer #1: For every piece of fanfiction (on lj) for any fandom on this list, I'll donate $5 or $2 to a charity of your choice, assuming it's a charity that takes Paypal - $5 if there are no other known fanworks already in the com's memories, $2 if there are. (You can also directly look at the Memories-section here - as each suggested fandom should have its own post of basic stats, there'll be at least one Memory for each fandom on the list.)

There are four further requirements to the fic-link, those being:

1) the fic cannot be located in a fandom-specific community (multi-fandom ones are perfectly fine though)
2) the fic cannot be located on fanfiction.net (unless the fandom doesn't have a category of its own)
3) the fic cannot be located in the Yuletide-archive
4) the fandom cannot be a 'newsletter only' one

To err on the side of caution: I'll probably tap out at $250, should you have that many links.

Offer #2: For every offer to write a ficlet (100-500 words) in any of these five fandoms, I'll offer a donation of $7 - the fandoms in question being: Being Human (TV), Solarbabies (movie), Reaper (TV), Heartbeat (TV) and Hana Yori Dango (TV-version). These are the five fandoms that will be 'tricked' in fandom_of_one during the week of Halloween, and I'd sort of like to offer the 'trickers' a treat as well, but unfortunately, I don't know any of these fandoms.

Two questions--first, if we are linking you to fics, is it really as easy as it sounds? Do we just ... give you links to fics? And second, by 1), do you mean that the fic can never have been located in a fandom-specific community, or that the links that we give you cannot be to fandom-specific communities?
misuramisura on October 19th, 2008 03:10 pm (UTC)
Yes to the first question - it depends to the second one; the thing is that I'm looking for fics that people wouldn't normally find by doing a simple Interests-search. If a fic for fandom X is linked to or posted in the fandom X-community, then it's easy enough to find it (and not worth adding to Memories, as it's far easier to simply tell people where to find the community).

I realize that not all people will equip their fic-posts with notes on whether or not they cross-posted or linked to it anywhere else, so there may be a bit of overlap, but the bottomline would be that no, I'm not really looking for links to the last thirty entries in the fandom X-community.
Gileonnengileonnen on October 19th, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)
Aaah, okay. In that case, here, have a Hamlet fic that I know hasn't been crossposted anywhere: Cornelius and Voltimand Are (Improbably) Still Alive. (It's mine, but. It hasn't been crossposted. *grin*)

Any chance of getting a Brothers Karamazov category onto the list?
misuramisura on October 19th, 2008 05:08 pm (UTC)
Brothers Karamazov, being the title of a book stands no chance of getting on the list, I'm afraid - however, Fyodor Dostoevsky does, so he's on there now. (I er also added your epic and your other fanfic to the Memories and nabbed your Henriad fanfic.)

There's also a Dostoevsky-fan-community it seems (fdostoevsky) - it hasn't been updated in almost six months, but if you write something else for this author's works, its members might be interested in hearing about it.

Do you have a preferred charity and/or an e-mail address I could send the Paypal-receipt of my donation to? (Or more links? *hopeful grin*)
Gileonnengileonnen on October 19th, 2008 05:19 pm (UTC)
Aaah, wasn't sure how titles worked for books versus shows. Clearly, you're following the Yuletide model. And thank you for the addition--I'm not after more exposure, particularly; I just want to read more fic! (The Henriad fic's been crossposted to thisengland, the Histories fic-et-al community; hopefully that's not a problem?)

Thank you for the link! You made my day. ^_^

I like to see donations to the Human Rights Campaign, personally--they've done good work with the groups in which I've been an activist--but if you'd like to donate to a charity which is more specifically aimed at protecting California's marriage rights, that's fine, too. E-mail's Anne_from_Xanth AT yahoo DOT com.

I've got an Othello fic that's up on my journal, as well, but that's been crossposted to bard_slash. Useful, not useful ...?
misuramisura on October 19th, 2008 06:04 pm (UTC)
Ack - sorry, it seems you need a credit card to donate to HRC, and my Paypal-account is a Direct Deposit one, so I made my donation to MEUSA instead. (A bit of a pity, I can't help but feeling, as MEUSA doesn't have someone matching their donations today.)

... There's a show? I er didn't know about that - although yes, I'm kind of trying to follow the Yuletide-model (and the book was there first, one assumes). thisengland sounds fairly general (the impression I got was that I might find a few Marlowe-fans there as well) but bard_slash sounded fairly Shakespearean, so I skipped the Othello fic.
Gileonnengileonnen on October 19th, 2008 06:06 pm (UTC)
Works for me! No big deal. Thank you for donating.

No, no, I meant--you use titles for shows and authors for books. ^_^;; There is a film, but it's got William Shatner as Alyosha, so I'm not watching it because that sounds like the kind of thing that I'm never going to be able to un-see. And your standards sound fair.

OK, here are some links to things I've written, all located on my LJ and not located anywhere else.

Mary Renault books:

Considerations Alexander and Bagoas (The Persian Boy)

The Dancer from the Dance, Bagoas (The Persian Boy)

Bim Makes an Entrance Bim (The Charioteer)

Water Alexander/Hephaistion (The Persia Boy)

Arthurian Legend:

Family Likeness Mordred/Lancelot

I'll understand if you don't want to accept the following link, as it's a crossover written for an ithurtsmybrain challenge!

Lost Travellers Hephaistion and Chewbacca (The Persian Boy/Star Wars)

misuramisura on October 19th, 2008 05:21 pm (UTC)
Ooh, thank you - I think there's very few people who don't know Star Wars, so that last link's definitely acceptable as well even if, yeah, I can see why it was written for ithurtsmybrain. Ahem.

Do you have a prefered charity and/or an e-mail address I can forward the Paypal-receipt of my donation to?
Daegaerdaegaer on October 19th, 2008 09:07 pm (UTC)
Yay! My address is daegaer AT livejournal DOT com and any of the marriage equality charities listed on the comm's profile page is fine by me :-)

I *really* don't think this will count, but just in case - fic_on_demand links for Eyeshield 21 fic (three of them, one of which I wrote)...

misuramisura on October 20th, 2008 05:55 am (UTC)
Don't see why they wouldn't count - fic_on_demand is hardly a fandom-specific community, after all. (Only er, I wrote one of those three fics, too, so I'll exclude that one from the bounty - and plunder the rest of that com's memories at the earliest opportunity, as there's some other stuff in there as well.)

Do you have a prefered (Paypal-accepting) charity and/or an e-mail address I can send the confirmation of my donation to?
JoAnnjoannindiw on October 20th, 2008 06:00 am (UTC)
I don't have a preferred charity - I'm guessing you're going to have to use MEUSA again (as in the above comments) (and, wow, I totally missed that you had written one. ^^VVVVV). You can send confirm to joannindiw AT gmail DOT com.

If you're willing to go off LJ to other fic sites (not for this charity but for your comm in general, you could check http://archive.skyehawke.com/ -I posted my Eyeshield fic there too, I think, and if I remember correctly there's actually and Eyeshield category...

(and yay! I'm glad this counts, thank you!)
misuramisura on October 20th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
Well, the plan is to start with lj, and then perhaps slowly expand a little livejournal today, tomorrow the entire Internet! - right now, I'm just browsing all kinds of general fanfiction-coms and personal writing journals (and, I must confess, having quite a bit of fun doing so, even if barely one percent of the fandoms on the list means anything to me). On the other hand ... why put off until tomorrow, etc.

Plus, of course, Eyeshield 21 actually is one of my personal fandoms, so I'll happily pounce on any cache of new fics.

Thank you very much for the fic-links and the link to the archive! (The donation's been made so if all's well, you'll have a copy of the receipt in a few minutes.)

Well, here's one for Ocean's Eleven: a drabble called "Advice".

I used to write Babylon 5 a million years ago, but it's all mouldering on my hard drive and I'd have to find it.
misuramisura on October 20th, 2008 07:34 pm (UTC)
Ah - thank you! Babylon 5 is only on the list because one peson suggested it as a fandom that 'used to be' but it turned out the fandom's still very much alive and kicking (and producing its own newsletter at universe_today) so it's only on there as a reference, to let people know that yes, someone suggested it and no, it's not dead, they simply haven't found its new home(s) yet.

Do you have a prefered (Paypal-accepting) charity and/or an e-mail address I can send a confirmation of my donation to?
