This entry marks the culmination of the Multimedia Auction's efforts. There's only 1 person I have yet to hear from regarding their final donation, but it looks like we raised a total of $640 for the Organization for Transformative Works. This astounding figure will go towards all of the wonderful fan efforts put on by the OTW.

Thank you to all the artists, bidders, and writers who participated in this and the fic auction. I know I personally am going to go read and enjoy fanworks over at AO3 happy to know I helped make the place what it is for all us fans.

Please don't hesitate to donate to the OTW in the future, and happy creating!

Donation How-To

Donating is super simple


  1. When you win a bid, the mod will contact you via comment after the auction closes on May 2nd.

  2. Donate the amount agreed upon to OTW.

  3. Send proof of donation, to the person whose bid you won. (I'd suggest private messaging them with a link to the a screenshot of the confirmation, or ask for an email you can send the proof of donation to) This should be a screencap of the donation confirmation. Please black out your personal information!

  4. The person whose bid you won will post to the donation confirmation post saying they've received confirmation.

  5. Done! Now it's up to the winning bidder and the offerer to work out the creation and delivery of the work!



Note: All donations should be made in USD amounts. If you won multiple bids, you may make one donation that includes all of your winning bids, and mention that to your offerers.
