So here’s the deal. I’m not doing so hot financially right now, and I desperately need to find some way to supplement my income, at least to get me through the next couple of months until I can get my financial health back to a reasonable level. To that end, I’m going to be offering the following:
- Fic commissions: Any length, any pairing, any fandom as long as I’m passingly familiar with it. You can give me as much or as little direction as you want. Toying with the idea of charging $1.00 USD per hundred words–you would specify a length, and it’d be up to me to match it. Word count would be a minimum, and any overage you would, of course, not be charged for. This could also be for something other than fanfic–I like to ramble and I would be happy to ramble about anything you like.
- Knitting: Small items and accessories. Off the top of my head, some available items would be: fingerless gloves/armwarmers, headbands, hats, potholders, washcloths, small bags/pouches to hold dice, crystals, or tarot cards. No scarves, socks, or sweaters–the turn around on those items is simply too long to be worthwhile right now. I have a shit ton of yarn and a shit ton of patterns so I’m sure we can find something to work. Pricing would be on a case by case basis, likely somewhere between $5.00 - $20.00 USD depending on the item, plus shipping to get it to you.
- Tea: I sell tea from a company called Steeped Tea. If you are interested in tea I would be more than happy to talk to you about options, what kinds of teas you like, make suggestions as to teas to try as well as hardware and accessories you might find helpful. If you’re interested, let me know, and I can give you the link where you can peruse the entire current catalog.
- Translation: I haven’t done any for a long time, but I would be happy to work on translating any quotes or short texts into Sindarin Elvish, complete with tengwar transcription. These would be a flat $5.00 USD fee. Until I’m in a better place, I’m not going to be doing any more free translations, but I can promise a quick turnaround on translation assignments.
- Item sales: I don’t know yet what this might entail, but I have a pretty sizeable collection of comics, books, DVDs, and video games. I also have a massive yarn stash, some of might end up parting with. If you’re interested, feel free to let me know, but I’ll probably post pics and information as I figure this stuff out.
- Donations: Fuck, I really hate this shit, but–if you don’t actually want anything, and you have some cash to spare, and you feel so moved, these would also be accepted.
I hate how pathetic I sound, but I’m at work utterly paralyzed by a sick feeling in my gut and feeling like I’m on the edge of a breakdown, and I need to take SOME kind of action, so–this is what I’m doing. If you’re interested in ANY of the above, please let me know via message or fanmail. And thanks.
