Commissions!

hey all! these days i pretty rarely accept commissions, but i do a monthly roulette for one on my patreon–slots are limited, and usually full, but please check me out there! ❤

Do you have an ultimate rarepair that never, ever gets their due or the seed of a story idea you’d love to see bloom into a beautiful flower? Well, I like to write, and I’d love to write for you! I can do fan-fic or original work, I can do smut or even NOT smut, if that’s your flavor! 😮

Here are some examples of works I’ve done on commission:

Fire Emblem Fates: Winner Take All (feat. Rinkah x Charlotte)
Fire Emblem Fates: Sleeping Dragon (feat. Camilla x Corrin)

Do you have an ultimate rarepair that never, ever gets their due or the seed of a story idea you’d love to see bloom into a beautiful flower? Well, I like to write, and I’d love to write for you! I can do fan-fic or original work, I can do smut or even NOT smut, if that’s your flavor! 😮

Generally, I work at a rate of $1.50 per one hundred words (rounded up to the closest 100). In return, you’ll receive a story of your specification with a contract for my non-exclusive use once it’s approved by you. Put simply: I retain the rights to post the finished work on AO3 or other sites.** My rates and availability are fairly loose at this time, so I’ll always confirm with you in contract what the actual rates, deadlines, and specifications, and part of the initial email process will include hashing out the scope of the work, but I generally orbit three broad tiers:

~1k words: flash fic, limited story set up, an impressionistic scene or romantic interlude
~3-4k words: basic scenario set-up and scene-building transitioning into longer romantic moment
~6-8k words: fleshed-out scenario and circumstance leading to a climatically frank and fun escapade!

As for the content itself, I certainly have my specialties! In my personal work, I’m best at and most comfortable with queer pairings (mostly F/F), but I am open to any pairings of any gender/sexuality if the mood strikes and I am especially happy to work with scenes including trans, non-binary, or gender non-conforming characters. I don’t want to drown this post in restrictions, so I’ll just say the strong “no”s I have involve characters that feel/appear too young, sexualized violence that takes the form of: humiliation/abuse/gore (some light humiliation/teasing is fine, of course, but I prefer everyone in the scene be on board), and some of the hard(er)core kinks that I don’t think I have the acumen for. I’m flexible on characters who are canonically young but whose defining trait is not their youngness/naivete (think Persona teens vs. Fire Emblem’s Nowi), but I’ll request that scenarios be set in the future where they are adults. Regardless, I’m happy to hash this all out with you in conversation! 🙂

Some of my favorite series are Fire Emblem, Persona, Final Fantasy 14 (and others!) and many of the usual big-hitter JRPGs. But I’m fairly knowledgeable about video games and anime in general, and my greatest pleasure is creating something from an obscure series or pairing that hasn’t gotten its due. So please don’t let my list of works on AO3 constrain you, that’s really just the beginning! I’m also happy to work with your OCs of any stripe, provided I’m able to get into the headspace of the characters enough that I feel I could write an accurate portrayal of them, so feel free to ask! The thing that pleases me most about writing is knowing I’ve made someone else happy, and I’d be thrilled to do a little research on the side to make your rarepair dreams come true! ❤

If any of this interests you, or you have any questions, shoot me an email at zoe.g.miller@gmail.com!

And if you don’t want to commission something outright, please consider taking a look at my patreon and seeing if you’d rather support me that way. But, as always, the absolute best way to support me is by reblogging something of mine you liked and sharing it with those who you think would enjoy it too.

Thanks so much for reading, I hope to hear from you soon!

** Note about the above: If you’d like an exclusive story that you retain the rights to I’m happy to oblige! Just be aware that the rate will generally be much higher (closer to my actual freelance rate for spec work), because commissions are deeply pro-rated with the idea that I’ll be able to use the material later. ❤
