[sticky entry] Sticky: Salutations! A little to know about me:

 Whether you're here to stay or here to gather info so you can fill a fic exchange for me, here's some basics to help you get acquainted. 

About me:

30-something, female, white, American, asexual, demi/bi-romantic. Lives in the Midwest. Loves lazing around the house with my five cats. Enjoys writing when the mood strikes and needs to be better about reading the giant mountain of books I've collected. Seamstress/Cosplayer who staffs at one convention and usually attends a few others a year. Works at a bookstore. Loves nerding about animals, geology, space, prehistoric critters and fandoms. Favorite authors are J.K. Rowling, Jonathan L. Howard and William Shakespeare.  Disney/Pixar diehard. 

 
What I love:
Happily ever afters, hope defeating adversity, healthy relationships, domestic fluff, the power of friendship/love, females being awesome and badass (even if they are visually "girly girls"), adventure, humor, canon compliant (unless au, in which case the characters should remain like their canon selves)
 
----------------
 
 
Will not stand for:
Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, Biphobia, Transphobia, Asexual/Aromantic Erasure, Xenophobia, Fatphobia, Body Shaming, Ableism, Incest, Pedophilia, Rape/Non-Con of any kind
 
No Thank You/Personal squicks:
Omegaverse, Seme/Uke dynamics, Underage characters (under 18) paired with anyone canonically over 21, any relationship with massive power imbalance (student/teacher, adult/underage character, etc), making a canonically nice/kind character yandere/evil, most rival pairings/hate ships, unfaithfulness in relationships, Deathfic, Cynical/Dark plots without a point, concepts that completely remove free will (Soulmate marks, being forced to love someone bc fate) as opposed to something like red string of fate that is still ~destiny~ without forcing it, villianizing cats/felines, pairings that break up my ships
 
Give me a Warning for:
Animal abuse/death, pregnancy/child birth, depiction or talk about needles, self-harm/suicide, nsfw

[sticky entry] Sticky: The Giant List of Fave Characters/Ships

This post will give you an idea about my favorite characters, relationships and pairings from various fandoms I'm into.

Re: younger characters. As I'm ace, I sometimes don't realize how often people take the term "ship" and use it to mean "sexual situations." Obviously, for some of these characters I would not at all like that interpretation implied until they are much older, so I've made an indication of those pairings by using the x instead of the / to show that right now it's purely a romantic relationship and not a sexual one.

So for ease of notation:
/ indicates a ship in which I am okay with it being sexual going by the ages at the end of the series.
x for a ship that I view romantically, not sexually (ie. dating, holding hands, cuddling, chaste kisses)
+ for strictly platonic relationships

Letter to Writer

 Hello there fellow writer from an exchange!  Hopefully this will help you out when working on my gift.
 
Likes: 
I'm a huge sucker for happy fluffy things and when it comes to fanworks this is no difference. I don't mind the characters facing a daunting struggle, but I like my endings happy and hopeful. Some of my favorite tropes to hit are- bickering like a married couple or flirting while bickering (if it fits the characters), what happens after the "happy ending" / where do they go next with their relationship, females being awesome and badass (even if they are visually "girly girls"), the power of friendship, hugging and forehead touches, adventure and humor.
 
Dislikes:
Angst/darkness with no point or purpose, cynical/dark endings, pregnancy/kid fic and art, abusive relationships, noncon of any kind, overtly sexual themes (PG-13/fade to black please!), potshotting/using a character's voice to bash another character, pairings with any of the pairings not listed in prompts.

Hope this helps and thank you!

 Hello there fellow writer from [community profile] fandom5k !  Below I've included a list of overall likes/dislikes and a little bit about each fandom/pair on my list and what I love about them specifically. Hopefully this will help you out when working on my gift.

Pokemon (Video Games)


N/Touko and Moon/Lillie

Both of these pairs I adore something fierce and I'd love to see a fic with one of the following premises:

- Crossing paths- N and Lillie cross paths while she's away, meanwhile Touko's just arrived in Alola and has challenged Champion Moon. I'd love to see the two groups talking with each other and interacting, and then the double-reunion in Alola.

- I've always been a sucker for the idea that once N and Touko reunite they'd work to start a Pokemon Shelter/Adoption place where injured or abandoned pokemon are cared for and helped so they can trust humans again. Something like the Pokemon Village in XY comes to mind, but anything about them working to help Pokemon together, having fluffy couple moments and loving what they do.

- Lillie and Moon seem to be sending one another photos post-game, so I'd like a story that follows a series of photographs exchanged between then, ending with them reuniting. 

- Anything with them reuniting abroad and exploring another region together. Does Touko track N down finally in Kalos? Does Moon finally cave and go find Lillie in Johto? What sort of adventures would they enjoy together as they explore an unfamiliar land?
Both of these pairs I adore something fierce and I'd love to see a fic with one of the following premises:




Mass Effect

Female Shepard/Garrus Vakarian (Mass Effect) 
Jack | Subject Zero 
Urdnot Wrex
Mordin Solus
Tali'Zorah nar Rayya 
Mass Effect is a series near and dear to my heart, namely thanks to the wonderful cast of characters in it. Whether you decide to do a character piece or a pairing piece, feel free to incorporate as many combinations of the characters listed as even a cameo from one of them will make me happy.

Some Prompts:
- I've always wondered how well Jack got on with some of the other members of the crew, especially given that she was often my teammate with some of them. So I'd love to see a character piece with Jack having a bonding time with Mordin, Tali or Wrex. 

- The Fix-It Fic goes first and foremost here to Mordin, who I'd love to see survive and be allowed to see Wrex and the Krogan's lives changing because of what he's done to cure the genophage.  I'd love to see him hanging around and becoming Wrex's oddball friend.

- Anything post-Destroy ending (although feel free to find a way to spare EDI) with Garrus reuniting with Shepard. Does he find out she's been saved from the wreckage? Does he insist on helping out while she's still under medical care? Just all the fluffy stuff with them getting their happy ending.

- Feel free to do any character piece with Fem!Shepard and any of the characters selected (Jack, Tali, Wrex, Mordin) These were my main teammates and I'm always itching for more with them being friends.


Rogue One

 
Chirrut Imwe/Baze Malbus 
 
Cassian Andor/Jyn Erso
 
Cassian Andor & Jyn Erso & Bodhi Rook & Baze Malbus & Chirrut Imwe & K2SO

Prompts:
- As much as I expected this movie to end the way it did, I also immediately knew I'd want a Fix-It Ending where (like in every other Star Wars thing) somehow they escape at just the last minute. Did K2SO download his info to another droid, get another ship and manage to scoop everyone up in time? Did something happen not quite like we saw it, so Bodhi was able to get their ship in the air and find the others in time? Considering how many ways characters in the SW universe have gotten out of crazy impossible situations, there's plenty of ways to get these guys off the planet. What happens then? Do they go into hiding? Show up at someone's family's place and crash to wait things out? Just anything with this group and their wonderful dynamic. Feel free to have both pairings listed as well if you wish.

- Cassian/Jyn - so somehow (points to above) they get off the planet in time. Where does their lives take them next? How do they deal with their blossoming romance? Anything post-movie fix-it would be great.

- Chirrut/Baze. Okay so Chirrut pretty much jumped straight to the top 5 of my SW character faves and I adore his relationship with Baze. Anything with them past/present would be awesome. How did they hook up? How did they meet? When did they get married (because they so are)? What scrapes has Chirrut walked into that Baze has had to pull him out of? Anything with this couple and their amazing dynamic would be stellar!



Yuri on Ice!!!


Yuuri/Victor 

I'd love anything established relationship post-series with these two would be awesome. Tell me about how Yuuri Katsuki goes onto win five world titles and the next Olympic gold. Give me domestic fluff while they're at home together (please no nagging wife!Yuuri or Victor. Let them be good husbands who both know how to cook/do the dishes but would always rather do it together). Anything with them in Hasetsu with Yuuri's family would be AMAZING.

Femslash Exchange 2016!~

Hello there fellow femslasher! I'm pretty hyped about this exchange since I'm a firm believer in there never being enough femslash in fandom, so adding to it is always a good thing. Below I've included a list of overall likes/dislikes and a little bit about each fandom/pair on my list and what I love about them specifically. Hopefully this will help you out when working on my gift.

Fandoms/Requests:

Fandom: Fire Emblem Fates
As with a lot of people, I'm totally into Fire Emblem 13/14. These pairs are some of my faves that rarely get any fanworks and I'd love to see more of them!

F!MyUnit/Rhajat-
I adore these two and was positively gutted when the localization butchered their actual supports and instead gave us a pronoun-swapped version of the male supports. As such, I firmly hold to the original Japanese support texts for them, since it actually shows character growth and development rather than generic stalker complex. That all being said, I'd love anything with them- introspective into how they fell in love, post-Birthright or Revelations stories, general fluff and cuteness, Rhajat giving Corrin magic lessons- whatever.  I just love to see any positive fanworks for Rhajat since so much of fandom just spends its time bashing her.


F!My Unit/Scarlet-
 These supports are some of the cutest and I feel could easily be turned into a romantic support chain. Whether it's a Birthright-based story or a Revelations-based one in which Scarlet pulls a Kaze and the power of love can save her, I'd love to see where their stories take them post-game.

F!My Unit/Rinkah- As one of the first parts of the game involve Corrin sparing Rinkah's life and the way that leads into their relationship and care for each other, I'd love to see this romance and how it pans out. Does Corrin find Rinkah's fiery temper endearing? Totally understand the need to be a lone wolf too? So much potential for them given how the plot starts their relationship off. 

F!My Unit/Reina-
 Reina is such an amazing and interesting character and I'd love to see a romance with an older!build Corrin (closer in age to Xander and Ryoma aged) and how that pans out. There's a definite May/December pairing element here and I'd love to see how that affects them and their affections for one another. Does Corrin try to brush it off as a crush on an older woman she looks up to? Does Reina fear she's interested in Corrin because she reminds her of Mikoto? Lots of angles here to explore.

F!My Unit/Nyx- Nyx is a character I feel is so overlooked in fandom despite how fond I am of her and her backstory. I'd love to see how f!Corrin and her fall for one another, how Corrin tries to help Nyx resolve her past guilt or how the inherit goodness of Corrin's personality attracts Nyx to her. 


Fandom: Fire Emblem Awakening
 
So not only have I a deep love of this game, but I somehow ended up in the deepest for some of the MU/female character ships that don't get much of a fandom presence. 
 
MyUnit/Panne - Narratively at the end, if Robin chooses to defeat Grima herself, Panne makes a comment about how she did so as an honor to her Warren (the Shepards) and I'd love to see post-game Panne reuniting with Robin again (no amnesia please!) and finding comfort that this is one important member of her "Warren" that she didn't lose. Feel free to get really emotional and tug all the heartstrings, as I love the bond these two share and would love to see it explored. I'm also totally up to the idea of them finding/raising two lost taguel children that are Morgan and Yarne or having the future!versions of those children showing up and giving Panne hope that Robin will return. 
 
MyUnit/Tharja - I'd love something along the lines of the supports that males get with Tharja that end up giving her a kind and caring side that she hides due to trying to keep up her image as a Dark Mage. Anything exploring a possible tragic past (no rape/sexual abuse please!) or possible social aniexty elements of her character would be awesome as well. I'd love for Robin to understand her past and come to love her because who she is deep down.
 

MyUnit/Flavia- The supports for these two are so wonderful and the whole "sister" bit was such a "lol no homo" that I desperately itch for a fix-it that fleshes their affection out and establishes that Flavia's desire for Robin to be a part of her family is a romantic one. How do they hook up? How do their right-hand male friends of Bastillo and Chrom help them do so? Lots of angles that I'd love to see developed with the potential the game left for them.
 
 

Fandom: Mass Effect
 
Of course I had to go and fall for the lady romances that aren't possible really in-game, so I'm left with fandom to fill the void. Totally cool with playing a bit lax with the ending elements (Destroy with EDI/everything but the baddies somehow living and Shep surviving is my fave) as like all ME fans I have a few qualms with it.
 
Fem!Shep/Tali - These two have the sweetest relationship in-game and I'd love to see anything exploring where it could have gone had it been an option. What would a date with them been like? A post-game reunion? ETC.

Fem!Shep/Jack- I love the idea of Paragon!Shep somehow falling for Jack (and not in a I need to fix you and make you nice way) for who she is and coming to accept her for that. That clash of nice girl/bad girl element without either one feeling they need to compromise who they are to please the other. How could this have happened in-game if it was an option? 
 
Fem!Shep/Samara - I love the little the Citadel DLC gave us, but would like to see Samara's vows and how that effects their relationship explored further. I'm totally down for asexual!Shepard for this and would love this relationship explored from an asexuality angle.
 

Fandom: Pokemon

I have a major soft-spot for femslash in the Pokemon games and these pairs are no exception. A few little things I'd love:
 
Serena/Shauna - I fell for this hard in the game and would love anything exploring it. How did the relationship build throughout the story of the game? What happened post game? How did their other friends find out that they were crushing on each other? Random cute fluffy things! I don't care, I just love these girls and love anything with them.
 
May/Zinnia - I'd love something exploring that Zinnia's outer personality is obviously a bit of a front to hide her insecurities and past trauma. What happened to the first Aster? How can May help her feel like she's going to be okay now after all that transpired in the Delta episode? How does May finally track her down again? There's so many questions the game leaves open that I'd love to see answered!


Fandom: Cirque Arachne (Manga)


ANYTHING for this rare series and its main pairing would be utterly amazing!

Fandom: Ever After High

Apple/Darling- After finding out she's the white knight, Apple asks Darling for fighting lessons because "a true princess should be able to protect her people." Of course, the close quarters end up making them fall for each other.
 
Cupid/Blondie- Given their jobs (reporter/being cupid) I feel they both are pretty perceptive about the feelings and goings on of the other students. Would love to see what happens when they both suspect the other is crushing on them and are uncertain how to proceed.

Fandom: Fire Emblem Awakening

MyUnit/Tharja - anything that explores viewing Tharja's stalker tendancies as being her social awkardness/any sort of tragic past (no rape please!). I'd like there to be a good reason for it that Robin can begin to understand and find endearing- so anything exploring that angle.
 
Tiki/Say'ri - While the text was heavier on slashy vibes than some others, I'd love to see this relationship explored further. Anything with the idea of Tiki (although she's older) trying to get Say'ri to loosen up and have fun would be awesome.
 
Lissa/Maribelle - I adore these two and would love to see them going from more "proper" ladies to the battle maidens we can get with reclassing them (love the war cleric battle dress!), with the angle that they are wanting to be stronger so they can protect the other and then both finding that out about the other and being touched.

Fandom: Pokemon (Video Games)

May/Lisia/Zinnia - Flustered May between two forward ladies and unsure how to deal with all the attention. Please make it a true polyship and feel free to explore it from all angles of it.

Fandom: Love Live! School Idol Project
Hoshizora Rin/Koizumi Hanayo - Turning the Love Wing Bell episode into a resulting love confession/hookup.
 
Nishikino Maki/Yazawa Nico - after Nico graduates, Maki reluctantly admits she misses her. Ensue hijinks with the rest of the group trying to hook them up much to their equally tsundere dismay.

Fandom: Mass Effect
Fem!Shep/Samara - I love the little the Citadel DLC gave us, but would like to see Samara's vows and how that effects their relationship explored further. I'm totally down for asexual!Shepard for this and would love this relationship explored from an asexuality angle.


Thank you again and have fun creating!

Fandom: Darkwing Duck

I'd love anything exploring the aspect that Drake and Launchpad are basically Gosalyn's two dads. I love their little found family, as odd as it may be. Whether it's Gosalyn getting older (teenaged?) and them having to deal with the new challenges of that or something with her reminiscing on how her life has changed since Drake adopted her. Superhero antics are totally welcome as well :)

Fandom: Love Live! School Idol Project

I'd love to see a piece post-series/movie about where the third years go next with their lives. Does Nozomi move in with Eli? Nico get a solo career? Eli go back into dance? What does their lives after u's have in store for them? (Feel free to mention their interaction with the rest of the girls if you want!- especially because I could see Nico's relationship with Maki or mentorship of Hanayo being important to her)

Fandom: Ever After High

I'm a big fan of this series and I adore all the cast so much. So I have a lot of options for you! Any character centered piece with any of the listed girls. Could be her friendships with any of the girls or their relationship with their family. A two-girl lead adventure would also be awesome. 

Thank you again and have fun writing!

Fandoms/Requests:

Fire Emblem: Awakening:

I just recently binge-played this game and immediately fell in love with all the ladies and was very sad I could not S-Support them all. If I could have requested more for this series I would have, I am in that deep with it.

MyUnit/Panne - Narratively at the end, if Robin chooses to defeat Grima herself, Panne makes a comment about how she did so as an honor to her Warren (the Shepards) and I'd love to see post-game Panne reuniting with Robin again (no amenesia please!) and finding comfort that this is one important member of her "Warren" that she didn't lose. Feel free to get really emotional and tug all the heartstrings, as I love the bond these two share and would love to see it explored.

Miriel/Sully - These two have such a unique relationship and I love their personalities and the way they mesh. Seeing anything dealing with Sully's uncertainities about her femininity or Miriel trying to overcome her more scientific speech patterns to convey her feelings properly.

Cordelia/Sumia - I'd love to see them as crushing on each other in the Pegasus Knights and thinking the other has a crush on Chrom and the resulting situation when they discover the truth about the others feelings.


Pokemon
I have a major soft-spot for femslash in the Pokemon games and these pairs are no exception. A few little things I'd love:

Serena/Shauna - I fell for this hard in the game and would love anything exploring it. How did the relationship build throughout the story of the game? What happened post game? Random cute fluffy things! I don't care, I just love these girls and love anything with them.

May/Zinnia - I'd love something exploring that Zinnia's outer personality is obviously a bit of a front to hide her insecurities and past trauma. What happened to the first Aster? How can May help her feel like she's going to be okay now after all that transpired in the Delta episode?

May/Lisia - I'd love to see May trying to get Lisia to adventure outside the Contest world. Go trekking all over Hoenn on adventures together and falling in love/more in love in the process.

Skyla/Elesa - I'm certain in her line of business as a model Elesa gets a lot of attention directed her way and it makes Skyla a bit jealous. Anything exploring that with the two, whether it's Skyla wondering if she's not pretty enough herself or her feeling like she has to share Elesa with the modeling world.


Mass Effect:

Of course I had to go and fall for the lady romances that aren't possible really in-game, so I'm left with fandom to fill the void. Totally cool with playing a bit lax with the ending elements (Destroy with EDI somehow living and Shep surviving is my fave) as like all ME fans I have a few qualms with it.

Fem!Shep/Tali - These two have the sweetest relationship in-game and I'd love to see anything exploring where it could have gone had it been an option. What would a date with them been like? A post-game reunion? ETC.

Fem!Shep/Jack- I love the idea of ParagonShep somehow falling for Jack (and not in a I need to fix you and make you nice way) for who she is and accepting her for that. Anything exploring that or just general antics with their conflicting personalities would be great.

Fem!Shep/Samara - I love the little the Citadel DLC gave us, but would like to see Samara's vows and how that effects their relationship explored further. I'm totally down for asexual!Shepard for this.


Yuri Kuma Arashi:

For Ginko/Kureha or Ai Uchiko/Yurikawa Konomi - what happens post-series? I want to see where their lives take them next!


Love Live!

Ayase Eli/Toujou Nozomi - We get a glimpse of Nozomi's past and how she met Eli, but I'd love anything exploring how they went from friends to dating.

Hoshizora Rin/Koizumi Hanayo - Turning the Love Wing Bell episode into a resoluting love confession/hookup.

Nishikino Maki/Yazawa Nico - after Nico graduates, Maki reluctantly admits she misses her. Ensue hijinks with the rest of the group trying to hook them up much to their equally tsundere dismay.


Macross Frontier

Sheryl/Ranka - anything cute and fluffy. I'm so desperate for anyone even into this show, let alone this ship to be more picky about it.


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR WHAT I'M CERTAIN WILL BE AN AWESOME FANWORK!

Dear Author/Artist letter for the Fandom Growth Exchange 2015

Salutations fellow rarepair author/artist! Needless to say, if you are willing to produce a fanwork for one of my tiny yet dearly loved fandoms, I'm already very excited. Below I've included a list of overall likes/dislikes and a little bit about each fandom/pair on my list and what I love about them specifically. Hopefully this will help you out when working on my gift.

Likes:
I'm a huge sucker for happy fluffy things and when it comes to fanworks this is no difference. I don't mind the characters facing a daunting struggle, but I like my endings happy and hopeful. Some of my favorite tropes to hit are- bickering like a married couple or flirting while bickering, what happens after the "happy ending" / where do they go next with their relationship, females being awesome and badass (even if they are visually "girly girls"), the power of friendship, hugging and forehead touches, adventure and humor.

Dislikes:
Angst/darkness with no point or purpose, cynical/dark endings, pregnancy/kid fic and art, abusive relationships, noncon of any kind, overtly sexual themes (PG-13/fade to black please!), potshotting/using a character's voice to bash another character, side pairings with characters not listed in prompts.



Fandoms/Requests:

Pokemon:

I have a major soft-spot for femslash in the Pokemon games and these pairs are no exception. A few little things I'd love:

May/Lisia - I'd love to see May trying to get Lisia to adventure outside the Contest world. Go trekking all over Hoenn on adventures together and falling in love/more in love in the process.

May/Zinnia - I feel that Zinnia left a lot unsaid when she left in the game, and I'd love to see May tracking her down and confronting her about it. Let them get all emotional and just have a good yell/cry at one another before resolving things and starting a relationship.

May/Lisia/Zinnia - Flustered May between two forward ladies and unsure how to deal with all the attention. Please make it a true polyship and feel free to explore it from all angles of it.

Skyla/Elesa - These two are really an opposites attract situation and I'd love to see that explored. What does Elesa think of Skyla's dangerous gym setup / what does Skyla think of the fashion world?

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Juhani/Female Light-side Revan - I'd love to see anything post-game (and willfully ignorant of the second game's plot for Revan) exploring where the two go from the ending. How do they balance their Jedi ideals with their blossoming love? Do they ask others on the crew of the Ebon Hawk for advice? Do hilarious mishaps and hijinks ensue? Just have fun with it!

Disney's Hercules (1997)

Hercules/Megara - This is my favorite Disney movie and I adore the relationship between the two. Anything set post-movie would be utterly wonderful exploring where their relationship goes from there.

Pixar's Inside Out (2015)

Joy/Sadness - This movie really hit a personal chord with me and I'd love to see anything post-movie exploring how Joy and Sadness can really work together as a unit to tackle life and how the other emotions help or inadvertently hinder their attempts to work things out.

Axis Powers Hetalia

Prussia/Switzerland - I love what little bits these two have had in canon (especially the route of the game where Prussia helps Switzerland garden) and adore exploring the hilarious hijinks a relationship between them could create. Anything with this pairing that has humor, romance and a happy end is golden in my book.

Darkwing Duck

any pairing (Darkwing Duck/Launchpad, Darkwing Duck/Morgana) - Does it involve puns, sidekicks/ladies saving the hero, and family time with Gosalyn? Then I'm good. Honestly, I just would take anything for either ship here - DW/LP or DW/M.

Disney Ducks (Comics)

Donald Duck/Daisy Duck or Scrooge McDuck/Goldie O'Gilt anything and I'm a happy person. Comics canons I am personally fond of are Don Rosa, Carl Barks and the Margarida series from Brazil.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR WHAT I'M CERTAIN WILL BE AN AWESOME FANWORK!

FRIENDS CUT

Just made a friends cut, which ended up pretty harsh because only 61 people commented to stay.

IF YOU MISSED THE CUT AND WOULD LIKE TO BE RE-ADDED, PLEASE REPLY TO THIS POST!

If I kept you and you really wished I didn't, please consider this a free-pass to defriend.

Thanks.

Unlocked post, because this is IMPORTANT!

Hey Hetalia fandom, let's get our charity support on!

Much like previous fandom auctions for charity (such as [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti) there are a few out right now to help the flooding in both Australia and Brazil. Lives have been lost, crops and livelihoods have been destroyed, and many many people have been displaced from their homes. Please, do what you can to help these people and animals!



* [livejournal.com profile] helpbrazil2011 is a mulit-fandom based fundraiser in which people offer fanworks, crafts, goodies, graphics and anything else they can in exchange for a donation being made to a charity supporting the flood victims in Brazil.

-- This is the MAIN AUCTION thread and bidding here closes on January 31st!

These are the people offering Hetalia specifically for HelpBrazil so far! Remember to check the post out as many others say "any fandom" for their auctions!







Thank you Hetalia fans for all your efforts at [livejournal.com profile] qldfloodauction! Our fandom raised $276 for Australian flood relief with our auctions!

Thank you to those who offered their works and those who bid on them!



If you guys have existing threads in any of the above and you want them pimped out, just drop me the link in the comments below and I'll add them to this post. Also, I am leaving this post unlocked until all the auctions close, so feel free to pimp this post out to fellow Hetalia fans~!

Please bid or offer your talents if you can. Remember that every little bit helps!

I feel just like I've grown apart from a lot of people, or we have nothing in common anymore, or your journal is dead. If I cut you and you think it's been a mistake (which is possible, I am sunburnt and sleepy) feel free to PM me.
