A Little Love Would be Nice

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 22, 2013, 7:53 PM
Weird title, I know, but I think it's fitting with what I'm about to ask.

A friend and fellow fanfic writer, SeventhRain (many of you would know her as DarknessInfernal), is in need of some help.  She's in the process of applying for colleges and scholarships, but there's one out there that could pay for the majority of all four years of her education as it awards up to $50,000.  The problem?  She needs at least 70 pages of written work to submit and the original story she's been working on has all but fizzled out due to a lack of muse or motivation - take your pick.

She's asking if there's anyone out there who might be willing to assist her creative muse with a gift of a picture from her story as, in the past, looking at creative works from Dragon Age fans has helped restart her creative process when she's been writing her Dragon Age based fanfics.  She's very much aware that many of you artists rely on money from commissions to help pay the bills or just supplement your income, but hopes (as do I) that someone out there might be willing to do something, anything - even a rough speedpaint would be appreciated.

The whole story, including links to her original work, can be found here:  dragonagestories.deviantart.co…

Even though I have a good chunk of my points earmarked for my own personal contest, in a situation like this I'd be willing to help by paying or donating points to anyone who would be kind enough to do this for her.  I've got upwards of 1000 points I can shell out, between donations and points I purchased a while back for, as I said, my own contest (and one I need to extend for my ModernThedas group - those points are not up on the chopping block, understandably).

So, yeah, if anyone can do anything, it would be appreciated more than you know.  Her deadline to get enough pages written and into the contest is Feb. 20th.

Thank you so much in advance if you can show just that little bit of love.

Thanks! Found it when searching Mass Effect journal skins and decided to install it. I have this and another Joker one that I bounce between, along with a few that are Dragon Age related and some that are just pretty that have nothing to do with games.

This is seriously one of the nicest things a stranger (though I use that term loosely - we're all family here!) has done for me. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. I really can't thank you enough. :glomp:

You're very welcome! I know how important this is so, even though I can't draw, I can at least do this to try and help! :glomp:

I saw - need to update my own journal at some point to add that. I'm a doofus when it comes to remembering stuff.

And I'll donate 636 :points: aka a 3 month prem membership to the winner - how's that? Just poke at me to let me know who gets the prize :)

Oh it's no problem. I'd be a hypocrite if I blamed you for being forgetful. :giggle:

Awesome awesome awesome! I'll most certainly let you know who wins! Thanks for the generous donation!

While I am not an artist, I will go have a read because I don't think I have yet. ;P
