Hey all, just a quick post because I'm in need of some help.

Recently, as many of you may have noticed, I've really gotten into writing again and have been posting fictions left and right. With "For the First Time in Never" finished I find myself wanting to continue writing, but I've hit a snag. The editor I had helping me with FTFTIN has had to withdraw due to personal and work related issues leaving me in sore need of someone to help me edit. I've got another fic started that I want to start working on, but I need help with grammatical stuff since that seems to be my biggest hang-up. 

So here's my question/request. If there is anyone who has read my work and likes it enough to help, I really need a second editor ASAP. They need to have a firm grasp of English grammar and sentence structure and be able to make edits within three days of receiving the chapter/piece. Of course I know that people have lives and life itself can be unpredictable, so my timeline is just a rough outline of what I'm looking for. If anyone reading this is interested please PM me here on DA or my Tumblr page.

I am currently taking commissions. Message me for information.

If you are interested in getting a custom piece of artwork feel free to message me at any time. I promise I'll get back to your notes as soon as possible, but if I'm a little slow please don't take it as a cold shoulder. Now for a little FAQ.

Q. Is any of your art free for the taking?

:bulletred: NO! None of my art is free to just walk off with. I put a lot of effort into my designs and the only reason I'm here on DA is to get my name out into the world. That doesn't mean people can take my work and paint it onto their skin without permission or paying first. I'm sorry, but that's the way of it.

Q. How much do your commissions cost?

:bulletred: Most commissions will cost $50.

Q. How do you want to be payed?

:bulletred: In money of course! :XD: But seriously, I work only through PayPal and would like payment up front. I am willing do a preliminary sketch before payment is sent, but I must be payed before I start inking or detailing anything.

Q. Do you do anything in color and does it cost more?

:bulletred: I am willing to do colored pieces but if it calls for intricate coloring I may have to drop the commission. Any tattoo/tribal design with color WILL cost more depending on the difficulty.

Q. Do you do commission with your Alphabet Photography or custom Mighty Muggs?

:bulletred: I do! =D Please PM me for more information

Q. Do you do custom names and words in Gallifreyan circle script?

:bulletred: I do indeed. If you are interested in a custom circle script, message me and I'll explain how it works and what you should expect to find. I will also translate your name or word under the script or under each letter depending on what you want.

Q. How long does a commission take?

:bulletred: It all depends. Most of the time I can crank out a tattoo piece in about two days, but if I have class or a heavy work load it might take a little longer. Safe to say, if you commission something from me expect to see the finished product in about two weeks.

Q. Do you trade art as payment?

:bulletred: That depends a lot on the artist wanting to trade. I would prefer to be payed in cash, but I'm willing to discuss trades to a certain extent.

If I haven't answered any questions you have with this little Q&A please feel free to message me and ask. I won't bite you to hard ;)

So other than dA, where do you post your stories?  Like The Stag and the Maiden?

I post all my work on, AO3, and tumblr. Stag has more of a following on my tumblr than anywhere else.……

Perfect thanks!  I can now finally read beyond chapter 3 and catch up! >w< :boogie: Gotta watch you on fanfic. ^^;

Yeah, I had intended on posting the story here on DA but the chapters were just too long. I might start posting again and with links so people can read it here too, but we'll see. If you have a tumblr I do a lot of sneak peeks of upcoming chapters and fanart there.
