Fanworks Auction for merakieross

Hey, everyone! One of our friends is also in need of help. merakieross has posted about her medical situation on her tumblr here. In short, she's in a bad situation with both medical bills and college fees (which need to be paid in order for her to keep her student medical insurance) coming due by July 10. She's an awesome artist (see below for an example!) who is hoping to take commissions in order to help pay for her medical expenses.

This auction is now closed and all winners should have gotten a comment with the information needed. For any further questions, feel free to contact me at or PM me at selecasharp. Thank you for all those that offered something to help, and to those putting in bids for a good cause! We raised over $320!

However, we'd like to help her by also holding a fanworks auction! I'll be offering fic (selecasharp from teashopmuses as well as on tumblr) along with vintagejacqui (also on tumblr and a fellow writer on the youknowtheyarebrothers tumblr), pixymisa from teashopmuses, and dimeliora (nonastrega on tumblr), and art along with lightthesparks and pixymisa as well. If you'd like to offer your own fic or art, please feel free!

To participate, you can either A) offer your art/writing/vids/etc. up to bidders, B) bid on others who have made offers, C) put an idea you'd like to see up and how much you'd be willing to donate, or D) choose one of the ideas from C and fulfill it!

The auction will start today, June 7, and will run until June 21. Note: June 21 is not the date by which you need to deliver your work to your winner. It's just the last date for people to bid on offers. You can talk to your winner and decide on the details/due date. If you're unsure about how a fanworks auction works, please check out the previous post at this community.

Feel free to promote this auction on LJ and elsewhere!

How to make an offer:
  • Copy the text below, fill in the details, and post it in a comment. (If you're putting up an idea for claiming, just specify that under 'what I'm offering' and don't fill out the 'samples of my work' line.)
  • You are welcome to offer fic, graphics of any sort (fanart, icons, wallpapers, gifs), fanvids, podfic and beta services, or anything else you like.
  • You may offer more than one fanwork; if so, please post each offer in a separate comment to make it easier to pick a winner for each offer. (Feel free to specify the length of the work and any other details you'd like to add.)
  • You can also make a blanket offer that you will fill for anyone who donates. For example, I will offer short fics to anyone who replies to that particular offer, not just pick one winner.
  • All fandoms are welcome, as are original works/any other item you choose to put up for bid.

    Copy this to make your offer:

    How to bid:
    Please respond directly to the comment with the offer that you'd like to bid on. If someone has already bid on the offer, you may reply to the previous bidder's comment and offer a larger amount. (This doesn't apply if it's a blanket offer or if it's a claim for an idea.) On June 21, I will contact the winners and send you the info on how to make your donation. Once your donation is confirmed, the person who made the offer will be informed. Please leave contact info so I can get in touch with you: you may leave your email ID in your comment or specify whether you'd like to be contacted via LJ PM instead.

    Please spread the word by linking to this post on your journal/tumblr/wherever. You can also donate directly to merakieros on Paypal at merakieros at if you'd prefer not to participate in the auction. Reposting this link will also be a huge help! To promote your offer on your journal and elsewhere, please link to your individual comment on this post.

    If you have any questions, please post them under the first comment below! Thanks, everyone!

    One of Merakieros's amazing pieces!
