Fanworks Auction to help Marcia
lyryk wrote in fanworksauction
marciaelena is one of the loveliest people I've met in fandom, and she urgently needs our help. If you don't know her, you can read about her current situation and make a direct donation here.

The auction will start today, June 23, and run until June 30 July 3. ETA: Extended the deadline since more people have recently gotten involved. :-)

Do feel free to promote this auction on LJ and elsewhere. Tumblr links: link 1 and link 2.

How to make an offer:

Copy the text below, fill in the details, and post it in a comment. You are most welcome to offer fic, graphics of any sort (fanart, icons, wallpapers, gifs), fanvids, podfic and beta services, If there's anything I've forgotten to add, please let me know and I'll add it to the list. You may offer more than one kind of fanwork; if so, please add the relevant details to your form. E.g. you may choose to offer two sets of ten icons each; in this case, the two highest bidders on your thread will both be the winners. (Feel free to specify the length of the work and any other details you'd like to add.) You may also offer a 'buy it now' price. Bidders for buy-it-now prices don't have to wait until the 30th to make their donations or to discuss their requests with the person whose offer they've won.

How to bid:

Please respond directly to the comment by the fanwork-maker. If someone has already bid on your person, you may reply to the previous bidder's comment and offer a larger amount. On June 30, I will contact the winners and send you the info on how to make your donation. Once your donation is confirmed, your fanwork-maker 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 do spread the word by linking to this post on your journal. You can also donate directly on Marcia's GoFundMe page if you'd prefer not to participate in the auction. Reposting the 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.

Thank you all!

ETA2: Got a couple of inquiries about this, so just adding it here: the last date for the auction is not the date by which you need to deliver your work! 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. :-)

Update July 4: Bidding is now closed. All winners have been notified via email/PM. (Except for one offer, for which I'm waiting to hear back before confirming the winners.) All done!

There are a few offers that don't have any bids. If anyone wants to buy these, you are most welcome, but let me know ASAP! :-)

Update July 8: The auction has raised $1472 for Marcia. Thanks to everyone who offered fanworks, made donations, and signal-boosted. Marcia has made a post here that she'd like to share with you all.
