I’m planning to!

As y’all might know, I live in this cold and dark place called Finland. It sucks, because a ton of my friends I’d love to meet live in the USA, and there’s a big fuckin’ sea between us. Well, I came to learn that a bunch of them will be attending A-Kon 2018 and one thing lead to another...

And now I have this crazy plan of crossing the Big Sea and crashing the party.

Obviously, this plan will require lot of $$$, but I have almost a full year to save up so I think I have a chance of making it. However, I’ll need every $ I can possibly scrape together, so-

Introducing…

Commission Campaign: Help Derk Crash A-Kon 2018!




What can you do?

Check out my commissions! 

I've just updated and adjusted the prices, and many of them have actually been lowered! The group deals I added in the beginning of the summer are still around as well, so there’s plenty of options you can grab! If you want to see some of the commission pieces I’ve finished in the past, you can find them here!

But wait, there’s more!

Are YOU going to A-Kon 2018?

If you are, and are also willing to meet me there, I’ll toss an extra hand-drawn waist-up sketch and a handwritten thank you note for any commissions over $25! And I’ll also probably give you a big ol’ thank you hug if your personal boundaries allow it.

If you don’t have money at hand right now…

That is perfectly okay! You can still help by spreading the word! Maybe you know someone who’s been looking for a commission deal? Also, I’ll definitely be keeping these commissions open all year around, so even if you can’t order one right now, feel free to come by later!



GOAL

My goal is to cover 1/5th of the overall necessary costs through commissions. After checking out plane ticket prices, estimating hotel room prices, et cetera, my math let me know the number would come down to $250.

Update 19th February -18 The goal has been reached! Wow, I can't thank you all enough! Your help has been invaluable!

The commissions will stay open still - all sales and the special sketch bonus included - at least up until I'm off to travel. From this point onwards, any commission income will be used to cover the remaining 4/5th of the travel costs.

PROGRESS: $250 / $250

Role Play Basics



Locations

I am comfortable doing:
- Comment
- Chats
- Notes
- Forum
- Email
- Skype
- Discord
- Google Docs
- Other
Notes and Google Docs are my usual go-to option because they're easy to keep track of and organize. Chat RPs are relatively okay too, especially if the goal is a more fast-paced RP. However, when it comes to fast-paced chat RP I prefer shorter posts than I usually do (say 3 paras at most) because English is my second language and trying to write more than 3 paras quickly is usually more stressful than it is fun. So, chat RPs are not preferred for heavily plot-driven RPs.

I dislike using Skype and Discord for RP purposes, but both are negotiable if nothing else works for you. Also, I don't like adding just anyone to my Skype contacts, so adding just for the sake of a single RP is a no-go. Discord I'm more lenient about. Skype and Discord are great for headcanoning, however!



Participants

I am comfortable with:
- One on one roleplays.
- Up to three people
- Up to four people
- Five or more people
- As big as possible!
One on one is my solid preference. Three people is manageable, but any more than that and my general feeling is that the roleplay is starting to get too arduous to be fun anymore. Five people is pretty much hitting the pain threshold for me and will probably only work if we're talking about a big event RP and there's some sort of "split" in the characters involved in the roleplay so that there isn't equal amounts of interaction with everyone. Also, with group roleplays I will always want a set reply order.



Post Length

I usually write about:
- One or two sentences.
- One or two paragraphs.
- Two to five paragraphs.
- More than five paragraphs.
- A few pages worth.
My general average is probably somewhere around 4-6 paragraphs. However, if I get really into the RP, my replies can easily stretch longer but I'd say never or very rarely long enough to cover a few pages. Also, as said before, for chat RPs I prefer shorter posts so 1-3 paras.



I am comfortable role-playing with people who write:

- One or two sentences.
- One or two paragraphs. 
- Two to five paragraphs.
- More than five paragraphs.
- A few pages worth.
tl;dr matching post lengths give me life, but I'm somewhat flexible with it. As long as I get enough material to work with in my reply, 1-2 paragraphs is fine. One-liners, however, will make me drop the roleplay.



Role-play Requests

I like getting requests from:
- Anyone and everyone at any time!
- When I ask for role-plays.
- From friends and acquaintances.
- From friends only.
Due to time restrictions, I tend to only RP significant planned character interactions - i.e. anything that notably affects either character's development. I'm up for planning something along those lines if I have an RP slot open. Close friends and/or people with whom I have big character arc plans already set sometimes get an extra free slot.





Romantic Relationships


Important: Communication is the key to a real life relationship, it shouldn't be abandoned for a fictional on either! Be sure to talk to your partners when considering romance!


Shipping

I am comfortable shipping my characters:
- Never.
- Our character know each other deeply.
- Our character know each other deeply, and I know I can trust the role-player.
- At the first sign of flirting!
- Only if the role-player and I plan it.
- It depends on the character.
In general, I'm pretty iffy about shipping. I'm not too romantic a person to begin with, so shipping isn't high in my priority list when it comes to RPing. If our characters seem compatible, there's a possibility for a good story and I know I can trust you to handle it well, I may be willing to give it a chance. I also have characters who will never be ship-compatible in any way, no matter what the setting.



If you want to ship with my characters:

- Talk to me about it from the start.
- Talk to me about it once our characters know each other.
- Talk to me about it once they both have some feelings for each other.
- Talk to me about it when they finally decide they want to go beyond hugging.
First things first: shipchasing is one of my absolute worst RP pet peeves. If you think that our characters might make a good couple, your best bet is to tell me right off the bat; I'm up to hearing possible relationship ideas any time of the day. I'd prefer if our characters had at least met once to have at least some insight of how they work together, but it's not an absolute requirement - just be ready to give me pretty solid reasonings as to why the ship might sail.

Being flirty and/or touchy is fine if it fits the character and I'm also a-okay with one-sided things happening, but even then please please discuss it with me beforehand.



Speed

When shipping my characters, I like the romance to happen:
- Swift as lightning! 
- Fast, but not super fast.
- Happens in about three months.
- Slow and steady wins the race.
- Slugs know what's up!
- My relationships know no speed. They happen if they happen.
The bottom line is that I want the progress to be realistic. However, depending on what characters are involved - and what sort of a ship we're building - the frame of 'realistic' is flexible. There will be no love at first sight, though, and I don't like rushing any sort of deep relationships in roleplays. Weekend flings or such are an exempt from this rule as long as it fits the characters.



Smut

When my characters get intimate, I prefer:
- To skip the act entirely.
- To write the build up, but skip the act.
- To write the act only if it is very special, but otherwise skip it.
- To write the act all the way through.
I'm not too big of a fan of writing sex or things leading up to it and roleplaying it just feels two times less appealing. I'm not opposed to the thought of it, it simply comes down to the language barrier. Again, English is not my native language, so writing RP replies in English takes an extra sliver of focus and seeing smut is something I write hardly ever, it demands even more thought and it often ends up killing the fun for me. However, I'm 100% up to discussing any smut headcanons as long as we have a ship going or are planning to get one sailing.



Romantic Artwork

When it comes to artwork depicting the relationship between our characters, please:
- Do not post it at all without talking to me.
- Post it if it is cuddles and hugs.
- Post it if it is kisses.
- Post it if it is much more.
- Do not post it at all if it depicts sexual acts!
- Do not post it where I can see it, but draw what you like!
Even if we have a canon ship going, I'd really prefer to see the piece before you post any ship stuff anywhere public. As long as you do that, I'm fine with you drawing and posting almost whatever as long as it fits the characters. If we don't have a ship going, please don't draw anything involving shipping and especially do not post it or I can promise I will react badly. This includes 'what if' scenarios or anything alike. The only exception is if I've personally given a permission for you to draw non-canon ship stuff.





Dramatics


Important: Always be sure to communicate with your partner individually if you think you are about to go outside their comfort zones even just the slightest bit!


Violence

When it comes to violent situations, I am comfortable with:
- No violence at all!
- I'm fine with verbal arguments!
- Some violence, like a paper cut, or an accidental elbow to the face.
- Mild violence, such as punching, kicking, hair pulling.
- Violence, such as stabbings.
- Beyond violence, such as torture and more.
I fuckin' love writing violence and have pretty much 0 limits with it. However, as much as I love violent RPs, even with them I like to keep things realistic. So, I like planning things out at least a bit beforehand and keep good communication up through the whole RP to stay on the map how close to their limits the characters are and so on so forth. Another thing worth mentioning is that when it comes down to excessive things like torture, I usually prefer to roleplay the character doing the damage. However, I also like to put my characters through a lot of pain, so if the character I'm roleplaying makes a good victim I'm probably 100% up to having them be tortured. Just HMU and we'll discuss it //double pistols



If you are going to do something violent, please:

- Don't do it at all.
- Talk to me about it first.
- Surprise me!
Don't auto-hit unless we've discussed it and I've given you a permission. Otherwise rise hell for all I care.



Dramatic Artwork

- Do not post any dramatic scenes that that happened between our characters.
- Talk to me about it before posting!
- Post what you like!
As long as it's canon or soon-to-be canon, post away. If it's a non-canon thing, I'd prefer to see the piece before you post it. If it's non-canon and something excessively violent, then I want to see it before you post it.
