esmenet: the three main characters of Samurai Champloo being iconic together (the best threesome in the goddamn world)
From: [personal profile] esmenet
User Name: [personal profile] esmenet
Email address:
YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional):
Examples of my work: [ profile] esmenet, various writing memes, my meta tag

I'm offering: several fics of 100-400 words, unconnected or based around a theme/prompt list, or one fic of about 1000 words, or a ~400+ word meta post criticizing and praising something (a fic, a movie, problematic author's notes) to the best of my ability. Genfic only; AUs, crossovers, and postcanon probable.

Fandoms (if appropriate): Avatar: The Last Airbender, Harry Potter, Natsume Yuujinchou, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Samurai Champloo, Ashita no Ousama, Shoujo Kakumei Utena, Mekakushi no Kuni | Land of the Blindfolded, Ranma 1/2, Fairy Tales, Detective Conan/Magic Kaito, xxxHOLiC, Katekyou Hitman Reborn!, DNAngel (if given lots of time to re-read)

Fandoms I am dubious about my ability write if not in a crossover with something else: Gokusen, Ouran High School Host Club, Fullmetal Alchemist, Twelve Kingdoms (and I'm not sure even then), House of Five Leaves, Yu-Gi-Oh!, From Eroica With Love, Cowboy Bebop

Additional Info (optional): As mentioned above, I write genfic. Usually about female characters. Fandom-specific caveats: *deep breath* A:tLA-wise, I am not used to writing Sokka (though I'm willing to make the attempt), and I will only write about the Order of the White Lotus in an attempt to add some awesome old ladies to it. For Harry Potter, I usually write about Hermione, Narcissa, Dean, Snape, and the Slytherins, though I'm willing to branch out. I am also not really a big fan of the Wizarding World's status quo, and that will show. I've never written more than a ficlet for Natsume Yuujinchou before, and anything longer would probably require a crossover or something. I don't know if I can write anything for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic or Samurai Champloo that isn't a crossover, possibly with each other, and I tend to go for Fluttershy and Fuu when I do try. I'm not sure how to go about writing for Ashita no Ousama, at least not without doing a lot of time-consuming research on theatre (though of course I'm willing to try). Utena fic might end up being for the movie instead of the series, and I still need to rewatch both of them. And I tend to write about Mikage, for some reason. Land of the Blindfolded fic will probably end up being about college. Ranma 1/2 fic will be pretty serious, and have lots of stuff about gender issues (kind of a given anyway). If you have a specific Fairy Tale or set of such in mind, please tell me. I've only read twenty-one volumes of Detective Conan, and am rather determined to give the female characters plot relevance (even if Kaito is my favorite). xxxHOLiC fic will probably be about Himawari and/or Yuuko, possibly Doumeki, and will either be AU or not very long. Katekyou Hitman Reborn fic will probably be about Mukuro or Chrome, or (possibly) Xanxus, or Yamamoto. Will also contain lots of always-a-girl, due to heavy gender imbalance in canon. DNAngel fic will probably contain . . . hmm, I'd need to re-read first. maybe gender-neutral!Dark, trans!characters, Riku and Risa being awesome. Crossover fandoms: I make no promises.

I tend to write in one of two styles: beautiful word-castles, every word slowly put in place, and dashed-off, which covers things quickly but is far less elegant. Either almost no substance spread out into spiderwebs to cover many words, or much substance lashed together with a few sentences -- I'm not very used to combining them in a way that doesn't jar, but I can if given time.

Time: I may need lots of it. (I still have an unfinished help_pakistan fic laying around, in fact.) But if you're willing to overlook canon errors and the like, I can finish a bunch of short fics fairly quickly.

Depending on fandom, prompts, fic lengths, I may be able to write fic for more than one or all bidders.

Starting Bid: 1.5 GBP for each short fic (more may be written than bought), 5 GBP for a takedown/talk-up/meta post, 7 for ~1000 word fic.
