This is being cross-posted to my personal journal, mmmdraco.
Funds, supplies, etc. are being collected here and there for relief efforts in those areas affected by Hurricane Katrina. But, there are a lot of people who aren't doing anything. Maybe they don't know what to do, maybe they can't see the point, I don't know. But I want to get more people to donate what they can. So, I'm doing a drabble-thon.
For every penny that you donate to The American Red Cross or American's Second Harvest, I will write one word for you. About absolutely anything. Poetry. Song filks. Crack!fic. Tentacle porn. Fluff that hurts your teeth. BDSM. Any fandom that I have ever said anything about.
The Red Cross requires a $5 minimum donation. However, you are free to team up with your friends in order to make a larger donation. If you have a receipt from a local cash donation site, scan in it, or type up the information from it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do the same deal.
Everyone, please pimp this. I may not be the world's best writer, but I have yet to make anyone unhappy with anything under $10 worth. All of my prior fan fiction is available in this journal's memories. My drabbles are in mmmdraco's memories. You can read them and see if you think I'm worth it. If you're a writer, feel free to steal this post to do your own drabblethon.
I'm disgusted by the things that America has let happen in the past week or so, most of which isn't the fault of most of the people. But, we're a country that rallies together around the very things that threaten to tear us apart which reminds me of how proud I am to be an American.
So, yeah. This is my contribution. You prove to me that you did something to help, and I write your fantasies a little closer to reality. I will object to nothing. Absolutely everything you ask for will be written. I will not say no, even if you want something that I find utterly and unspeakably awful. I will even write het porn if it will get your credit card out of your wallet for two minutes to make your donation.
So, yeah. Leave comments, but also send me e-mails. After you make your payment, you should receive a confirmation e-mail. Forward it to email@example.com with "Drabblethon Request - LJ name" in the header. (Of course, put your LJ name where it says that.) You can take out all of your personal information. But, at the top, make your actual requests for fic stuff. It can be a pairing, an idea, a kink, a word, a phrase, an object, whatever. If can even just be "whatever you think I'd like". And then? I'll get started on your fic. If, when you send your email to me, you have pimped this in your journal, you'll receive an extra 50 words for free. If you're doing this as well, you'll get an extra 100.
So, there we go. This is the thing I'm doing for the sake of those less fortunate. But, a penny a word? I think I'm worth it, and I hope you do, too, because I want this to work out well. I want the people who need help to get it.
