It's no great secret that the  author known as Seven Fates is unemployed. He certainly whines enough about how he can't get a break. In fact, the only income he has at all comes from bottle/can reclamation deposit—since he and his family greatly enjoys beverages of a carbonated sort—and a low-income tax credit that he receives from the province every fiscal quarter. Now, as some of you realize, reading this, he doesn't have a lot of money to spend. With the holidays coming up, Seven would especially like a bit of extra spending money... and to stop talking in the third person.

That's where you come in. Starting today, I will be taking writing commissions.

What is a writing commission?

Since not everybody is familiar with the concept of whoring out your artistic talents for money, a commission is a piece of work that an artist or writer is paid by an individual to produce. The commissioner gives the artist the specifications of what they want, and the artist works in those constraints. For example, if you wanted me to write a story about Scootaloo accidentally eating a hallucinogenic mushroom and going on a psychedelic adventure, you would tell me the basic plot idea, characters, story length [See Cost and Payment], and how much artistic freedom you wish me to have. After completion of the work, I will link you to a Google document. When it meets your approval and I have received payment in full, the story is released on FIMFiction should you so wish.

Cost and Payment

Now, quite obviously, I am not writing commissions for free. It would defeat the entire point of it being a commission in the first place. Because time is money *, I have set out a basic pricing system.

Regular Stories: USD$10/1000 words, with stories exceeding 10,000 words facing an additional USD$2.50 per 1000 words for time investment.

Clop Stories: USD$12.50/1000 words, with stories exceeding 10,000 words facing an additional USD$1 per 1000 words for time investment.

Once  the projected story length, characters, content, and a timeline are agreed upon via private message, I will provide you with a PayPal account. At that point, I will ask for 50% of the agreed upon price to hold as insurance of completion and our arrangement. Should you at any time decide to void our agreement, the 50% will be held to account for my time and effort.

Basically, you pay 50% up-front and 50% upon completion. Not wholly a unreasonable request given that you are paying for my time.

Rules for Commissions:

1: Because life cannot be predicted, I ask that you be patient when it comes to your commission. I won't mind if you check in every other day or so, but hounding me multiple times a day will not get it done faster. I happen to be responsible for preparing meals and tending to the animals in this household, so my every waking moment cannot and will not be dedicated solely to writing.

2: Related to the first rule, I'd ask that you allow for at least a week minimum for completion of any commission between 1000 and 3000 words, and an additional week for stories 4000 to 6000 long, and so forth. By allowing me more time for completion, you are allowing me to write a more quality product. Also keep in mind if I have another story in the queue ahead of you. To this effect, I will attempt to keep you informed on delays or queue status.

3: Please don't waste my time. If the half up-front payment wasn't enough of an indicator, I want serious requests. This is non-negotiable.

4: If you attempt to screw me over in any way, I will do my best to ensure that nobody will ever do a commission for you again on this site. So if you think you can just have me write a story and then make a chargeback the for the whole amount after I've held up my part of the bargain, please refer to the third rule.

5: Don't be a dick. This should need no explanation.

6: Tell me exactly what you want. If you are vague about anything, you are either not taking it seriously, or are giving me implicit permission for artistic license, which could be good or bad.

What is Seven not willing to write?

I will be willing to write about most subjects, so rather than telling you what I will write, it might be simpler to explain what I won't.

I will not write:

-Scat/Watersports: This also includes adult baby/diaper lover, infantilism, coprophagia and urolagnia.

-Vore: This also includes cock vore, goo absorption, and anal vore. Unbirth is fair game.

-Rape Fantasy: I take rape seriously and cannot in good conscience write a rape story intended to be sexy for the sake of being sexy.

-Hyper/Macro: This is not so much something I won't write as it is something I'm not comfortable with. Ask if you will, and depending on the degree, I might say yes.

-Foalcon: No exceptions. I've tried in the past to write it, but it makes me uneasy.

-Nothing that violates federal law.

I have opened two slots, which will be marked on my userpage alongside my active stories.

>>2342964 Gotten a bit sidetracked by things [read games(Gott im Himmel, people have gotten me into a few MOBAs and I'm actually enjoying myself)], but around half of the chapter is finished as it stands. Just too short for me to post as is.

#156 · 18w, 6d ago · · ·

So how's the next chapter coming along? Getting a taste of this story again after so long has reignited by thirst for more.

Sorry about the long break. Distractions, distractions, distractions. You know how it goes. Video games, anime, etc. You  know that whole shiz by now. That's not what y'all care about though. You want to know about chapter status, right?

As it stands, Chapter 12: Night of Fire sits at about 2.3k words. It has the first of a number of sections taken care of, and there's a small portion I need to go back and tweak/flesh out as of this status update. I'm not going to make any promises regarding when I'm going to get it out, because I have no idea which of the multiple fight scenes I've considered is going to play out. Whichever of those is chosen will determine just how long it will take to write, and then there's a special scene that reveals just exactly what in the fuck it is that Silver, Sunset, and the crew are facing, which also involves a special appearance from Pony Celestia. Needless to say,  big plans.
