History

Lenka spent the first three years of her life being raised by a single father. Unfortunately, he decided that he would not be able to give her the life he wanted to. Though he loved her very much, he sent Lenka to an orphanage, where she lived for the next two years.

After watching Robbie grow up for roughly four years, Sam and Natasha decided they wanted to adopt another child. Though they had not by any means set out to adopt a Black boy the first time, after some discussion, the two started looking into adopting a child from Russian. They figured if it didn’t work out, it didn’t work out, and they would adopt another American kid. About a year later, however, they were given permission, and after visiting a couple of orphanages while Robbie was in Sam and Bucky’s care, they came home with Lenka.

Though not averse to being adopted, she is not altogether thrilled to be in America either. She cannot remember her father well, but was told many times that he loved her and was a good man, making the difficult decision to give up his daughter so she could have a better life. Lenka always dreamt that she would be reunited with him, but being in America will make this difficult. She also speaks no English whatsoever, which makes communication difficult for Sam and Lenka’s new older brother, Robbie.

But life goes on. Natasha and Lenka give Robbie and Sam Russian lessons together so the family can talk to one another. Sam excels; Robbie…not so much. His heart is in the right place, though, so it doesn’t take long for Lenka to latch onto Robbie with all she’s worth. He loves being a big brother, too. So that Lenka can continue her ballet studies, Natasha enrolls her in a studio in a few blocks away, led by a Russian immigrant woman who does not pressure Lenka to “fit in” and start speaking only English. Some of the other students’ parents do, though, and Robbie (who is normally the one to take her, so he waits for her to finish) is always quick to defend her. Sam also teaches Lenka her favorite English phrase: “Shut the hell up.” It might not endear her to anyone, but Lenka never looks to be endearing.

Like Robbie, she is tasked with what is essentially SHIELD training from a young age. Her mother wants her to be able to take to it. Though perhaps not as enthusiastic about it as Robbie was to begin with, Lenka shows more natural skill, and starts doing basic, easy missions when she is about nine years old—though always with Robbie to look after her if things go wrong.

She is homeschooled due to her continued aversion to speaking English, even several years later when she could be considered fluent. Sam and Natasha do their best, and Lenka is quite good at learning. However, she struggles to make friends her own age. That is, until she introduced at the age of eight to Zoey Rhodes. Everyone expects Lenka to hate Zoey, who is openly and eagerly enthusiastic about nearly everything, and normally can’t stop talking for more than a few seconds at time. The two girls immediately hit it off, becoming both best friends, and later on partners in the Agent Gemini program.

Personality

Lenka is an odd child from the very beginning. Not shy, she appears cold and distant to those who do not understand her—which is most people outside of her immediate family. She dislikes the sound of English and refuses to speak it even when she is fluent, but does not communicate much in Russian either unless forced. However, Lenka is hot-blooded underneath her chilly exterior, and can delivery brutal and sudden beat downs without a single warning. She dislikes physical (or verbal) affection and typically only allows Zoey to show either to her, which allows many people to suspect they might be an item. In truth, Lenka is not interested in Zoey like that, but has not yet met a boy (or girl) that she feels is worth the effort. Lenka does love her family, though, and will show both kinds of affection, and accept it from them, in private.

Personal Triumph: Some of the successful missions that she and Zoey have pulled off

Personal Tragedy: Being separated from her birth father

Goals in Life:

~ To find her birth father and thank him for looking out for her, and to assure him she found a wonderful family

Friends

~ Carter Rogers
~ Robert Wilson
~ Zoey Rhodes
~ Bucky Rogers

Additional Notes:

~ Even as an adult, Lenka dislikes speaking English. She can communicate in it perfectly well, but prefers Russian...or simply not speaking at all
~ She is much more often mistaken for Carter’s younger sister than Robbie’s
~ Uncle Bucky has a special place in her heart for speaking Russian with her. It means a lot to her that someone outside of her immediate family will. He didn’t mean to do it, however, the response being automatic, and it hurts Carter’s feelings that he would show Lenka he can speak Russian before her
~ Lenka does not know this, but she feels bad whenever she inadvertently hurts Carter’s feelings
~ She really looks up to Carter, but no one is actually aware of this outside of Natasha
~ She usually plays the “bad cop” whenever she and Zoey interrogate anyone
~ She is also fluent in French, though learning that language is her own choice and she speaks it even less than Russian and English
~ She very rarely uses her body to get what she wants. She’s rather flat-chested and always very self-conscious of this in comparison to her very curvy mother
Avengers Next Gen: SamxNat: Lenka Wilson
I told you these would get shorter after Carter's. Of course, Lenka is also twelve, which means that she doesn't have as much back story as the older kids...also that her breasts aren't developed nearly as much as the picture would lead you to believe.

My obsession with Next Genning continues. I don't plan to do anything with these characters. They just come from a pointless project started with a friend on Tumblr/Facebook who has since lost interest. I'm just making biographies because A) I like making biographies and B) I'm hoping it'll help me get out of my writer's block. Or am I just procrastinating writing my first real sex scene for that Tony Stark fan fiction I have going on? Maybe! That's up to you to decide.

Lenka was originally called "Danya," which is a name I preferred the sound of, but when I went back to see if it meant anything significant, my naming website had changed the origin to Hebrew, so...Lenka it is. Lenka means "Light," in case you were wondering. Wasn't there a Lenka on Captain Planet? I'm too lazy to look it up. Someone stop me from being tired all the time. Zzzzzzz...

Natasha didn't change her last name when she and Sam got married, but the kids just go by Wilson because Natasha decided "Wilson-Romanoff" or "Romanoff-Wilson" was too much of a mouthful.

Sorry if I got her middle name wrong. I looked it up and tried to that correctly, but I admit I am not terribly great at cultural things like that. Please feel free to correct me.

Next up is (probably) Tobias Stark.

History

Robbie was a doorstep baby at a Brooklyn orphanage. He never knew who his parents were; they left no trinket, no note, no means of contact. Once he had grown up a little, he was put in the foster program, visiting family after family. Well-mannered and good at school, he was generally liked by his foster families…but he was quiet and shy in a sea full of other orphans who seemed to need help more than he did. Robbie learned quickly not to expect to be adopted. The most he could expect was to be kept until the decision was officially made.

Sam and Natasha never discussed having kids. It was agreed without speaking that they were enough for each other. They got married in a courthouse, kept their own last names, and continued on like they had much the same before their marriage. This changed after Bucky and Steve adopted Carter. Seeing how much they loved their daughter, Sam became interested in having a child of their own. He already knew, of course, that Natasha couldn’t have children, and when she reminded him of the fact, he pointed out adoption was an option for them, too. Natasha wasn’t entirely against the idea, but she had a stipulation: it needed to be a kid, not a baby. She didn’t want to be responsible for potty training anyone. Sam was more than happy to adopt an older child—they got adopted less often, after all, and every child deserved a chance. Once they had agreed that they wouldn’t rush into anything, Sam and Natasha started meeting children.

They had a meeting with Robbie when he was five. They had met with quite a few before, and while all seemed fine kids, Natasha hadn’t taken a direct shine to any of them. She immediately liked Robbie, however, and even after several other meetings, decided that Robbie was the one she wanted—if, of course, Robbie was amiable. Neither she nor Sam wanted to take a child that didn’t want them, and Robbie hadn’t seemed terribly eager. When asked, however, he agreed…though he expected that they would change their minds once they had him. Especially when he found out his adopted parents were Falcon and Black Widow.

He was polite. Robbie made sure to call them “Mom” and “Dad,” even though he was convinced his time with them would be short. Meeting Carter—who was also adopted and eager to meet her new “cousin”—warmed him up a little, but it was nearly five months before he called Natasha “Mom” and meant it. She nearly cried. Sam thought it was very sweet.

The addition of a little sister when he is ten makes things even better for the rapidly-opening up Robbie. Lenka may not speak English, but Robbie is eager to help her in any way he can. Robbie happily adds Russian lessons to his growing list of training and frequently takes Lenka to and from ballet practice, defending her from people that expect her to adjust immediately to life in America.  

Robbie is trained to take care of himself from the first week he is adopted. Natasha will not allow anyone to use her family to get to her. Sam is combat trained; Robbie is not. But Robbie takes a shine to any and all of the activities Natasha put him through and by high school he is a full-fledge (junior) agent of shield. When Steve retires, it is Robbie who inherits both his shield and the Captain America title—though as Robbie is not a captain, he is “Agent America” instead. He helps Lenka through the training (though she turns out even more naturally adept than he did) and the two of them form a good team on missions, though the development of the Agent Gemini team means they don’t go as often as they used to as the two grow up.

He also grows into a confident, well-spoke, kind-hearted young man. Good at school, sports, and people, Robbie is often at odds with his best friend, Carter. Robbie takes it upon himself to try to keep her out of trouble, but once they hit their teens, Carter is so often in trouble that even Robbie can’t keep up. His job also frequently keeps him out of school, forcing them to keep up contact (and school projects) via webcam at odd hours. This isn’t exactly the best, since Robbie is above all a gentleman and he often lets her sleep…which leads to unfinished projects at best and her winding up late at the worst.

Despite this, Robbie and Carter remain friends. When he realizes that she is interested in boys, but he can’t seem to work up any interest in girls, Robbie worries. Is he gay? But he doesn’t like men either. It is with Carter’s help that Robbie finally decides he is asexual at the age of fourteen. He agonizes over admitting this to his parents, but Natasha doesn’t care at all. She even takes him out for ice cream afterward.

Although there is no official “Avengers Next Generation Team” for quite some time, Robbie is the go-to leader until it becomes apparent that Shauna is better suited for the role. Robbie does not resent this in the least, as he feels leading is too much responsibility for him. Although many members of the team still go to him for help and advice outside of missions, Robbie defers to Shauna in all in-action assignments and asks that everyone else does as well.

Personality

Robbie is any easygoing youth who seems to make friends wherever he goes. Adults and peers alike simply trust him and hardly ever have a bad word against him. His natural talents at school and sports lead him to popularity at school…but his unwillingness to date (and his bad attempts at romance before he figures himself out) leads some to believe he thinks he is too good for most. However, Robbie is modest and he works hard to be good at what he does, rather than relying on coasting through on what he already has. On the flipside, Robbie is an adept liar. While he tries not to use this unless necessary for good reasons, duplicity becomes more habitual as he gets older. Though Robbie is understanding and a good listener, he also finds himself easily frustrated by people that admit they have a problem, but would rather languish in their pain or make things worse than fix things (like Carter).

Personal Triumph: Earning the respect of Captain Rogers to the point of inheriting the Captain America position

Personal Tragedy: Never being able to find his birth parents.

Goals in Life:

~ To make his parents proud
~ To be the best SHIELD agent that he can be

Friends

~ Carter Rogers
~ Lenka Wilson
~ Emma Stark
~ Zoey Rhodes
~ Shauna Rhodes

Additional Notes:

~ Robbie exclusively goes by that nickname, never by Robert
~ Most people don’t believe that Lenka is his younger sister even after he explains they are both adopted
~ He is rather overprotective of Lenka
~ He also tries to support her in any way he can, risking mission objectives to save her as well as going to ballet recitals
~ He and Carter are very close despite their frequently arguments around this time period. Steve worries about their sleepovers until Sam and Natasha explain that they are more cousins (actually platonic soul mates) than anything else.
~ Carter never has a crush on Robbie
~ He’s good at school, but not valedictorian good
~ Tobi doesn’t like him, for one reason or the other. Probably because he feels that Robbie makes Carter look bad and compounds her self-image issues—but that’s not Robbie’s fault
~ Despite taking Russian lessons and being able to communicate fairly well with Lenka, one of the few subjects Robbie isn’t good at is language. He never becomes fluent. They’re still very good at talking to each other, though.
Avengers Next Gen: SamxNat: Robbie Wilson
I DIDN'T MEAN TO CUT OFF THE "RINMARU" THING. THE PICTURE DOESN'T BELONG TO ME, OBVIOUSLY.

You may think the fact that I know one reads my biographies will keep me from writing them...but you are wrong. You underestimate my love of making biographies. 

Part of a pointless project I started with a friend on Facebook/Tumblr, who lost interest. I'm hoping making these biographies will help me out of my writer's block, even though I'm not going to do anything with these characters. They just live in my head, allowing me to make stories as I fall asleep.

I don't actually ship Sam and Nat, but I don't exactly not ship them either. They're both fine. This friend and I didn't roleplay, but we'd tell each other stories, and the couple came about from talking about Fury and Natasha going to coffee sometimes before he decided to "die" on her. So Natasha started showing up there and pointedly not talking to Fury and she'd drag Steve along because look I have friends other than you. One day, Steve really didn't want to go, as he had Bucky-related issues to work out, so he asked Sam to go for him. It turned out that Sam and Nat really hit it off, so Sam started going for Steve more and more often. Eventually Sam and Natasha just sorted of ended up in a romantic relationship without really talking about it. 

Clint doesn't get married in this project. He's just all the kids' favorite "uncle," and he helps Kate babysit. Natasha keeps a room for him at her place for when Kate is mad at him or he's too tired to go home, since Clint is her platonic soul mate, and Sam's okay with it. He's pretty close to both Robbie and Lenka, though Carter is probably the kid he's closest to.

In case you were wondering, Natasha decided Wilson-Romanoff was too ridiculous a last name, so she insisted on her kids just going by Wilson because it's really not that big a deal.

LOOK! This picture worked for some reason? Except Robbie keeps his hair buzzed, not all hipster-long. But that wasn't an option on the Rinmaru Anime Avatar Maker, and when you cannot draw, you cannot be picky about what is available to you. I did my best.

History

Carter’s life was bumpy from the get-go. The product of an affair between a dentist and one of his hygienists, she was unwanted almost immediately. Upon finding that his mistress was pregnant, the dentist went back to his wife and said he was not going to help take care of the child. The hygienist left her place of work, ashamed, and moved to Michigan, where she placed the unborn child up for adoption.

After a long, rather tumultuous period of rehabilitation, Bucky finally got to ask Steve out. It had only taken several decades, after all. Once they had dated for about a year, Steve proposed to Bucky, and the two married. There was no talk about raising children—at least, not for a couple of years. When Steve first brought the subject up, Bucky was fiercely against it. Maybe he was human again, but that didn’t mean better, especially around a kid. Steve, however, persevered, bringing up the subject and until he finally got a maybe. In fact, Bucky liked the idea of having a kid, but due to his various continued mental problems, felt that if he said yes and wound up doing something bad to the kid that he would be absolutely responsible, a monster yet again. He agreed to let Steve look for babies and apply, but Bucky wasn’t exactly happy about it.

It did not take long for the two of them to be accepted (c’mon, it’s Captain America) and to start looking. After several other unsuccessful meetings, they were paired with Carter’s mother. She was more than eager to let her baby to go to the two of them, and Steve was an enthusiastic participant from the start, preparing things for Carter and feeling her kick. Bucky continued to be distant and outwardly grumpy through the pregnancy. To everyone but Steve, it looked like Bucky didn’t want this child. Even Steve had his doubts sometimes. But as soon as she was born and Bucky held her, he gave up. No one was going to take this away from him. This child was his.

Carter’s early years were marked by happiness. She loved both of her parents dearly and was downright excited to be alive. Making friends came easily to her, and Carter was even a major part in welcoming Robbie home when he first arrived. If anyone had anything bad to say about her or her parents, she didn’t seem to notice. Having been forced twice to fight against his will, Bucky made the decision that Carter would not be trained to fight in any way, shape, or form. She was going to be kept safe. Steve agreed that Carter shouldn’t be made to do anything that she doesn’t want to do, and as she never asked about training, she went without doing so.

As she grew older, however, Carter grew more reserved. Her parents did not want her finding out the extent of Bucky’s problems and traumatic past, and so hid them from her for the first ten years of her life. If there was a chance it would come up at school, they took her out for some reason or another. When Bucky had particularly bad days, Carter would be packed up and sent away to either Sam and Natasha’s house, or Tony and Pepper’s—sometimes in the middle of the night, as Steve grew very good at telling when an episode would be starting and acted immediately. When she became old enough to realize this was happening, it started to wear on her more and more. Carter wondered if her parents didn’t want her after all. Knowing her birth mother did not even want contact with her, Carter had no idea where she would go.

School also played a part in Carter become more regularly upset and withdrawn. Though she was able to ignore jabs about having two dads and being adopted for the most part, people began to expect more of her. Most people believed that there was no way that Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes would adopt a normal child. The fact that she had no powers, no physical ability, and average intellect was noted and commented on by teachers and students alike. Her best friend being Robbie hardly helps matters, as he was frequently noted to be friendly, intelligent, and good at sports. Additionally, Carter starts to pick fights in school over anyone comments about her parents or lack of special ability. Bucky and Steve are called in a lot for conferences, and neither is sure what to do since Steve was guilty of picking fights a lot as a kid, too. Mostly they take her out for hamburgers.

When Carter is ten, Bucky has an episode so bad that he forgets that she exists. She is kept at Sam and Natasha’s house for longer than usual. When Bucky does remember and Carter gets to go home, there’s a photo of her missing. Bucky moved it to his bedside table so he wouldn’t forget again, but of course no one tells Carter that. She is convinced that she won’t be Bucky and Steve’s daughter much longer, and begs Uncle Clint to let her live with him. He tells Steve and Bucky that they have to tell her what is going on. They hadn’t even realized how frightened she was. They sit down as a family, everything is revealed, there are tears, but at least Carter knows her dads want to keep her.

This is not the end of Carter’s problems however. Robbie gets a little sister shortly after, and not only is he busy with her and learning Russian, Lenka and Bucky talk all the time in Russian, which leads to Carter feeling left out. Steve explains to her that speaking Russian isn’t something Bucky is proud of, and that he’s only helping Lenka feel more at home—but that only helps a little. Worse is a year or so later when Tony mentions offhandedly that Bucky didn’t even want her at first. She attempts to run away from home, but is luckily convinced to come back by Tobi. Bucky and Steve are furious with Tony for saying something thoughtless like that (and so is Pepper), and explain to Carter that Bucky did want her, but he was afraid to.

Things after that aren’t perfect, but they’re better. It is only when Carter realizes that all the other kids are in one big happy group and she’s being left behind again that she decides enough is enough. She approaches her dads about becoming a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Bucky is livid and says no. His heart is in the right place, but it still hurts Carter terribly. Uncle Clint steps up again—what is it that you want to do? he asks. Carter wants to be more like Bucky, because maybe that will make her happy. She takes up sniping like he had before becoming the Winter Soldier. Kate and Clint both help tutor her. When Bucky finds out, he refuses to speak to Clint—though he’ll talk to Kate still—for quite some time. Finding out why Carter picked that (and knowing that at least she’ll see the action at something of a distance) allows Bucky to soften somewhat in that regard.

Personality

After being a bundle of joy until about the age of six, Carter settles into a personality quite different from that for her teen years. Although she is known to smile and enjoy herself, those times are rare. More often, Carter is quiet, serious, and often angry at something or someone. She’s a perfectionist that can never see herself as perfect and compares herself to people with different life circumstances or abilities all the time. As much as Carter wants to fit in, she feels she is too normal to ever do so. Because of her desire to be the most important person to someone, she is taken in easily by affection, and crushed just as easily when that affection is no longer shown.

Personal Triumph: Taking up sniping at last and turning out to be slightly good at it
Personal Tragedy: Not having superpowers or any particular talent

Goals in Life:
~ To be the best at something
~ To be the most important person to someone
~ To be useful

Friends
~ Robert Wilson
~ Tobias Stark
~ Kate Bishop
~ Clint Barton
~ Jay Hammer

Additional Notes:

~ Carter’s first name comes from Peggy Carter, founding member of S.H.I.E.L.D.
~ Carter’s middle name comes from Rebecca Barnes, Bucky’s younger sister
~ It has been decided by various people that she has a thing for “bad boys”
~ Natasha and Sam are her godparents
~ She refers to them as “Aunt Natasha” and “Uncle Sam”
~ Lenka and Robbie are called her “cousins”
~ Robbie is her platonic soulmate, in addition to being her best friend throughout her life
~ She helps Robbie figure out he is asexual
~ The two of them go to prom together
~ Tobias Stark unconsciously thinks of her as his little sister and tries his best to look out for her
~ She is frequently mistaken for Lenka’s older sister
~ When she is four, Tony makes her a tiny pink iron man arm that shoots confetti when she asks why she doesn’t have a metal arm like her dad
~ She’s well aware she’s adopted
~ Because she looks like Steve and has caused Bucky some relapses, she worries a lot about making sure Bucky knows he’s her dad, too
~ She calls both of her dads “Dad,” and while the three of them seem to be able to decipher who she’s speaking about or to just fine, it confuses the hell out of everyone else
~ She wears her dads' reissued dog tags from the age of twelve onward
Avengers Next Gen: StevexBucky: Carter Rogers
And yet another return of my serial Next Genning. At least this one involves canon characters and not a bunch of OCs. Well, unless you count the couple of OC mothers, but they aren't really full-fledged OCs. This was started as a project with a friend on Facebook/Tumblr, but she lost interest so I guess it's just me now. Figured I'd see if making a few bios like the old days would get me out of this awful writer's block...

I don't have all of them done yet (no Thor Kids, and the Bruce daughter is only named and sexed). They all probably won't be this long either. I do more with Carter because I sail the good ship Stucky harder than any other ship. I might add more to all of them as more characters are developed.

I can't draw, so do enjoy these pictures made with the Rinmaru Anime Avatar maker. If they even show up, because I can't get Carter's to load. Fantastic.

(Contains: ideologically sensitive material)

Between Tony’s well-earned paranoia and Clint’s own observations, Natasha supposed that she should not have been surprised with the resulting outcome of her grand plan to have you really move in with her. She could forgive Tony for his comments: ”Sorry, Agent Romanoff, but with everything else going on, we can’t really risk you being distracted by your girlfriend’s gams” because it was Tony. Clint was harder; the claim that you could not take care of yourself if under attack rankled her perhaps more than it rankled you.

Natasha rarely fought with Clint, but when she did, it was a war of silence on both parts. Show his contrition though he might through remaining quiet whenever in her presence, Natasha was not ready yet to forgive him this betrayal—or perhaps no betrayal at all. There was a niggling worry in the very back of her head that was also to blame for her not inviting him to tag along on this trip: This might have worked out exactly how you wanted it. Then Natasha would have to apologize to Clint, an act which she was very quickly becoming tired of.

The subway lurched forward and Natasha’s body automatically adjusted in its seat to keep her upright. A man standing in front of her wearing much the same casual garb as herself smiled and Natasha’s mouth just as automatically smiled back. Here was one reason to have asked Clint to come with her: a male companion kept more male attention off of herself. Having recognized what had just happened with her traitorous lips, Natasha immediately turned her head to disinterestedly gaze at the advertisements sweeping past the windows. Her head was too full of worrying, planning, and grumbling to regard flirting with any enthusiasm. Perhaps the man would think she was rude; Natasha was in no mood to be polite.

She slipped out into the stream of exiting plebeians at the very next stop, following unfamiliar signs and stairways until clean air finally hit her lungs. This looked like the right place. All of the recent moving had upset Natasha’s normally keen sense of direction. The address, however, was printed in her mind as clearly as though written in ink, and a nearby street post soon had her on her way again. Natasha had to hurry. Much later in the day and she risked missing you altogether. Yet racing along would only highlight how nervous Natasha was. What little dignity she had remaining had to be kept, so Natasha walked, and as she walked, she thought.

She should have brought flowers.

She should have called ahead.

She should have asked if you even wanted her there at all.

The downfall of SHIELD had done nothing to clear Natasha’s schedule, not after she had moved to the Tower. Her plan had been to have you move with her, but no such luck. Maybe Clint was right. Maybe Natasha shouldn’t have wanted to put you so close to any danger the Avengers might get into, but she did. If separation was undesirable when she chose the separation, it was even worse when chosen for her—chosen for you as well. Crummy new job, crummy new apartment, crummy old relationship with a woman who had so much on her plate that there was barely any room for you at all. The late night phone calls and video chats were not enough. Natasha wanted you, but she couldn’t have you. Except today. Today Natasha had insisted. She was taking the day off, and if anyone had something to say about it, Clint, they could cram it up their shorts.

She could have, she should have, she would have. Natasha found her pace quickening as your new apartment complex came into view. If you had looked out your window, you would have been able to see her racing along, dignity be damned. The rubber bottoms of her shoes slapped against the pavement, the hood slipped from around her ears. Natasha was almost there. If you hadn’t made other plans—If you hadn’t moved away without saying—if—if—if—

Natasha’s fist rapped against thin door to what she could now only hope was the right place. Her ears strained for any sound inside. There was a spare key safely ensconced within a secret pocket in her purse, of course, but she would have preferred not to use it. Going inside to wait for someone unannounced was something she could only do with people whom she had been seeing regularly for the past month. Who was Natasha kidding, dragging herself all the way to DC without so much a note to you? If you were home at all, you wouldn’t be waiting around for her. Best to just call this a day, message you from the Tower, tell you now was not a good time.

The door opened just as Natasha had turned to leave. She turned again. Rubbing sleepily at one eye, you stood in the doorway, one of Natasha’s old sweaters pulled over a tiny pair of pajama shorts. Natasha opened her mouth to speak, but you beat her to it, surprise quickly overtaking your features. “Natasha?”

“Hey.” She slipped her hands into the pockets on the front of her jacket. You continued to blink at her as though expecting her to disappear in the growing evening shadows, but you did not send her away. Natasha decided to risk a smile. “Happy birthday.”

Another blink. Another. Natasha’s smile slipped a few notches. Then you stepped out of your apartment to throw your arms around her and bury your face into her chest. Your “You remembered!” came out muffled but joyous.

“Of course I remembered. I’m not so bad at this that I’d forget your birthday.” Maybe, just maybe, Natasha heard you sniff. But when you peeled your face away to look at her, there wasn’t a trace of tears. Just the biggest smile Natasha had seen on you yet. Laughing, she took your hand to lead you back into your apartment. Things weren’t great, Natasha would admit that. Still, seeing you happy like this was more than enough for now.

Okay, I’ve been thinking long and hard about doing this, and I’ve finally decided to do it. You know why? I don’t much enjoy my job. $10 an hour isn’t very much for being screamed at for nine hours with only one thirty minute break to halt the noise. I would like to save up some more money so I can move into my own place somewhere that hopefully has more enjoyable jobs. All the fun financial guides my parents keep sending me say to find hobbies you can get paid for, and I guess I might have one of those.

Please be aware that I am not 100% sure on the pricing. These seemed like reasonable expectations (especially since strings of the same thing would cost less), but feel free to discuss. I just know that I need more than the five cents per 2000 words I was making via points several years ago.

Interested? Read on.

But Straw, you’ve already opened and closed commissions!

That’s true. But these would be for actual money. dA points aren’t going to pay my rent. I’ve been told there’s a way to convert points to money, but this is just an easier way to do things. I have a PayPal, so all I need to do is get it set up to receive money if people are actually interested in doing this.

I don’t know. Some of your old commissions were pretty dumb.

Yes. Yes they were. But something important has happened since then: I have become a better writer.

HOWEVER, to prevent myself from charging you money for things you might not like, I have decided to put a system in place: You don’t pay me and I don’t write anything until we’ve come up with a story that you like. You get a slot, you tell me what you want, I get the information I need, then you pay me half of the cost of whatever it is you wanted.

I don’t have an idea for a story. I just want my OC and the canon character together.

That’s fine, too! Just let me know that, and I’ll come up with an idea for you. The same will still apply: I will keep coming up with ideas until I have one that you approve of. Only then will you owe me half of the money for your commission.

I don’t have an OC! What about reader inserts and other such things?

Not to fear, I can write any number of things for you! Do you want a story about Tony Stark and Bruce Banner going on a first date? Sure thing! What about you and your friend’s OCs from your own story or roleplay going on an adventure together? That too! I can do reader inserts as well, but do keep in mind I have a free reader insert request booklet that still has over 100 slots to be filled. Unless you just want yours sooner or you want something super specific or longer than a one shot, you might as well take advantage of not paying me for that.

How is this different from your free request booklet, then?

Because for these I am literally going to do whatever you want. Bring me your Tiffany the Ice Goddess of Asgards, your Emily the Rainbow Guardian of the Vongolas, and your Xavier the Muggle-Borns who both Draco Malfoy and George Weasley are fighting over! Multiple love interests? Characters inserted straight into scenes in the canon story? Game breaking magical powers that aren’t in the canon? Main character’s little sister? I’ll write any and all of the above. Pretty much anything is fair game.

What about your other free fan fics that you’re supposed to be writing?

Commissions come first, obviously, since that’s for monetary gain. However, I will only open three commission slots at a time, and update one of my “real” fan fictions (or more, depending) before opening commissions again.

I really liked this one shot of yours and I would like to see more about it.

Yep, you can also request that I do that for you. Basically, what you want, I will deliver.

Payment Guide (Open to Discussion)

  • $2 per ficlet (~500 words) or collection of 5 drabbles (~100 words). 50 cents per additional ficlet; 25 cents per additional drabble. Collections will be posted and paid for all at one time.
  • $5 per one shot (~1000-2500 words). Additional one shot pricing can be discussed, depending on what is wanted for them such as length, connecting one shots, etc. One shots will be posted and paid for one at a time.
  • $7 for the first chapter of a multi-chapter story (~3000-6000 words). Payment for additional chapters may be discussed, depending on length and other details. Chapters will be posted and paid for one at a time.

 

HALF of the full price is expected when I begin working on your commission. I will send you a note when writing begins and you will have a week to send me the money. Commissions will not be posted until half the money is received. Once the commission has been posted, you will again have a week to pay the rest of the price. Failure to send the second half of the money will result in blacklisting. No further commissions will be allowed, even if the work in question was part one of something longer.

What I Will Need

  • The fandom you want me to write for
  • Your idea or prompt for the story (if you have one)
  • Biography of character(s) to be written for

 

Biographies do not necessarily need to be long or detailed, but the more detailed the better. Details must be relevant to what is expected from the story (relationship with canon characters, backstory, powers, personality, etc.) and not silly, such as favorite holiday or season. For examples, please feel free to look at the biographies I use. A picture of your OC may be included, but is not required.

Please be aware that I have a list of fandoms that I will and will not write for. Please ask if you do not see your desired fandom. I might not have thought to add it, and if I cannot write it, I will be up front and let you know.

Hey howdy ho, random internet denizen!

My name is Straw. I’m twenty-three years old. As of May 2014, I have completed the requirements for my MA in English and will receive my degree in December 2014. I received my BA in English and Creative Writing in May 2012. Currently, I live with my parents and younger brother in Texas, working full time and I’m saving money up as best I can so I can move out into a small house this winter. Hopefully my platonic soul mate of several years will be coming along. My goal is to work for a publishing company in Portland, Oregon. The color green! Rain! Coffee! Or working with Marvel would be good, too, but do I dare to dream?

I’m feminist and Christian (nondenominational). I’ve also been a vegetarian my entire life! My sexuality is really of no importance to me, so it’s not really of importance to you either. I like who I like when I like and why I like them.

In my spare time, I like to write second person fan fiction, usually involving the Avengers fandom, though I do dabble in Star Trek, The Last of Us, and James Bond on occasion. I also love to read, worry over my goldfish (Ken, Chikusa, Loki, and Clint), watch movie reviews, talk to my internet buddies, and eat burritos.

If you ever have any questions or comments, or simply wish to strike up a conversation, please feel free to leave a comment on my profile. You can also send me an ask on my Tumblr (mostlyieatburritos.tumblr.com). Usually I have anonymous on, so don't worry if you don't have an account.

I also post my fan fictions to Quotev (as Straw/Strawchan), Ghosts of the Vanguard (as Straw), and Lunaescence (as Straw). If you ever see my stuff on any other website, that's not me. Please report them for stealing, and let me know so that I may as well.

Hey Straw, Since you're birthday is coming up I was going to write you a oneshot.
However, while looking through some of your old character Bios I can't seem to find the one i was looking for, your OC from KHR first gen. I still remember a great deal about her, she was a pickpoket who became a master their, ended up getting on well with the Vongolla and ended up stealing their rings only to get horribly burned when she tried to retreive them from a fire after realizing the error of her ways.
The only thing i can't remember is her name (an quite possibly her hair and eye colour).

Could you please email me a copy of her bio so I can make a start on it for you?

I don't think I actually have a bio for her. I was going to rework here before I lost interest in KHR!. But I do know who you're talking about: Carabella. She had green eyes, if that helps at all. It sounds like you have about everything else down. But if you need anything else, just let me know! I'll be on and off for most of the day.

Okay, did she have brown hair or was it another colour?
