    Writing Commissions

    In the past, I have done writing for fun and recently I decided to open commissions for either original or fandom-related works. I can write original characters, as long as there are provided bios for them regarding their personality and appearances. I use Venmo for transactions but can use other sites for transactions if necessary.

    If anyone over the age of 18 is interested, I can DM them a copy of the 18+ section.

    Only with the buyer’s permission will their story get published on this blog.

    I have the right to refuse to work on a story for any reason I deem logical.

    I never actually played Team Fortress 2 myself (time-consuming academics and all) -- I just kept up with all the comics and short videos. So I don’t have much to contribute to #SaveTF2.

    At least, in terms of actual stories about playing TF2.

    So I’m about to tell you Teufort Tumblrites a very, very different story about my involvement with this fandom -- back in the days when I was an undergraduate, the servers were thriving, and my friends were always ready to make jokes about this game.

    This is the story of the tumor pinata.

    My background is mostly in two overlapping fields: biology and bioengineering. In one of my undergrad honors seminars, I had a group project where we had to do a presentation on a paper on a topic of our choice. We chose antigen-specific cancer immunotherapy -- essentially, using the immune system to fight cancer without hurting the body with its own immune cells in the process.

    Now, I love presenting, and I really like to do fun multimedia things to make my presentations more fun for the audience. In particular, I like having interactive aspects, and I like giving out food. So in this case, I decided that I should do the same thing with this presentation, to make it more memorable.

    Specifically, I decided to make a big pull-string papier-mache pinata. Which I painted to look like a GIANT TUMOR.

    You see, the students in the audience were supposed to represent the immune cells, and they would come up and pull the strings to kill the tumor. Which I had decided to fill with Starburst candy.

    It was a massive hit with my class. Naturally, this meant I decided to tell my friends all about it.

    My friends who played TF2.

    I was a fan of the series already. I had read all the comics, watched all the videos... except one.

    You see, because of how focused I was on my studies, I didn’t always have time to check for updates to my favorite series, whether they were games, comics, shows, or anything else. And I, pre-medical biology student and creator of the tumor pinata, had absolutely no clue that Expiration Date had come out shortly before my presentation.

    It should also be noted, at this time, that I have a very obviously German surname.

    Hoo boy, I got a LOT of jokes about the Medic and his tumor bread.

    I ended up just kind of running with it -- he’s my favorite TF2 character, so I’d say I got a good deal out of this -- and Expiration Date quickly became my favorite video in TF2′s entire repertoire, partially just because of its legitimate quality, but also very much because of the tumor pinata. Because of this, I got way, way more involved with the Team Fortress 2 community, both with my college friends and online, and started following TF2 fandom blogs, meeting other people who liked the game, sending memes back and forth, etc. I’m even still friends with some of them, after all this time!

    So that’s the story of how I made my first real connection with the Team Fortress 2 fan community. Not through fan fiction or fanart. Not via cosplay or conventions. Not even by playing the actual goddamn game.

    My friendships in this community were fostered, at their core, by tumor candy.

    As a side note, I stored the remains of the tumor pinata in my family’s garage for several months, until it was finally eaten by mice that decided to live in it. Archimedes might have competition.

    So in response to the massive #SaveTF2 movement, Valve HQ remembered the password to the official TF2 twitter account and posted this:

    This is genuinely the best thing I've seen from Valve. They were given the chance to really fuck things up or really settle things down. This is the best outcome so far. Thank you, Valve.

    The response from the community has been hilarious:

    Jokes aside, this is genuinely the best possible outcome for this game's community. I'm happy to see our community just banding together like this, having fun and making memes. It's amazing!

    team fortress two…. man, i’m not sure where to start. 

    i’ve been in the fandom since around july of 2021, and it’s brought me nothing but joy and comfort. the wonderful people i’ve met and fun i’ve had compares to no other fandom or game i’ve ever partaken in, and tf2 truly is magical to me because of that. 

    special thanks to my mutuals and discord friends who have brightened the darkest times of my life, and thank you to the game that taught me to aim, and also taught me that community really can make all the difference in the world. 

    because of team fortress 2 my life is so much more vibrant and hopeful. it may be silly, and it may not seem like much, but this game has left an unforgettable mark on me as a person and i know for certain that it will stick with me for the rest of my life. 

    thank you tf2. here’s to another fifteen years of congas and humiliating dominations, blood, sweat and tears (mostly blood), and a whole lot of love for a silly hat game. godspeed, you magnificent bastard. 

    #savetf2#tf2 #team fortress 2 #this game helped me find my family #and i’m a better person because of it #i’ve never been so moved by a fandom and that’s not an exaggeration #ive felt nothing but welcome here #what a marvelous thing #important

    I breath, drink and eat tf2 daily, if anything were to happen to this game I’d be devastated.

    Planning to draw something to spread awareness, but for now:

    SAVE TF2!!

    Okay I know you’re probably not super into TF2 anymore but I need to rant at you out of love for a hot sec because!!!! Holy crap!!!! Your trucks n vans fics? PHENOMENAL!!! You literally changed my entire way of how I view these two with your writing. I STILL re-read Drop Kick Me, Jesus every so often because I love not just how you portrayed their dynamic but also just because it’s such a cool, action-based story!!!! (And you’re absolute right, we need more of those in TF2). It’s one of my favorite fics in this fandom!!!!

    Save State? Also? GLORIOUS. MWAH. CHEF’S KISS. I was so thrilled seeing all the mercs get back together again, and the attack on Grey’s island!! The “turn it off” scene gave me chills the first time I read it, and Engie’s confrontation with Grey himself? Near the end? When Grey tries to figure out what’s making him stay? And when he said “Or was it for him?” I GASPED OUT LOUD. AUDIBLY. Because it feels like not only the climax to Save State, but the cumulation of everything that Sniper and Engie have been through together in your other fics (Wonambi, Rosebud, The Langelaan Countermeasure, Tin Man’s Heart, just — all of them!!!!!!!) and it’s BEAUTIFUL and it basically left me shaking my laptop screen and screaming in the best way

    So yes!! Thank you for the fics you wrote, I love your writing style, your Lupin III fics are also great, I hope you have a nice day!!!!!!!!!

    😁 Thank ya kindly! I do have some regrets from this era--namely, not being bold enough to try sex scenes or give polyamory a go--but, I'm glad these works still hold up for readers!

    Man, since you bring up Lupin, I should mention an epiphany I had when reviewing "Snake Oil" and moving that to AO3 a few years ago. Going through that story...yeah. Pop a few OCs in and out, and that could have been a Lupin crossover. I was definitely prepped to hop into that fandom, sooner or later. Amazing what being cooped up in a pandemic will do for opening your eyeballs and shifting your tastes.

    #the people speak #team fortress 2 #trucks 'n vans #although a lot of my fandom shifts seem to be set off by either a traumatic event or media going sideways #Looking at the TF2 comic and season 3 of Netflix's Castlevania in particular

    Can you write how the mercs are when their s/o support/comforts about their most biggest secrets and still accept them for who they are? (such as spy and scouts ma situation...) Love your writting!!!!

    Well...

    Scooter

    I don't think he has any major secrets except daddy issues through the roof. Now if he actually confesses that to you, with his own mouth and you are still alive, and you actuallyj accept him and try to comfort him: scout.exe has stopped please wait for the restart of your device

    Soldier

    Ride or die so welcome to his Lil army cadet <3

    Pyro

    You are the lucky one who knows what's under Pyro mask. Congratulations, you shall two marry in build-a-bear and live your life the kid core arsonists dream

    Demo

    He is a hot mess. Thats a given known fact. He is an alcoholic- i doubt youll be able to help him fix that but you may be able to make him realise that getting shitfaced everyday isnt really a lifestyle you can keep up after college (or middle school if you are eastern european). Now whats under the eyepatch- thats a secret not even his mama have seen. He feels extremely weird without it, almost like if he is beyond naked. But hearing you become all sweet when he finnaly tosses his ol eye patch, he is ugly crying while hugging you.

    Engiequeer

    He loves holding your hand. He purrs when you hold his hand and give Lil squeezes. But that applies to his good hand. His metal hand is out of the question. He is horrified that he will hurt you so when he finnaly peels his glove off and see you all excited cause godman that's some hi-tech shit straight up from Star Wars (note: author had never seen star wars). That's the first level, when he takes it off and you see the stump-the reminder of his own stupidity, and you actually run up and give him some pain relieving cream for his phantom pains, yeah he is marrying you

    Heavy

    Once you become a thing he slowly reveals more things about himself. Key word: slowly, don't rush him and he'll collapse. My man's need some slow burn comfort to reveal all the horrible things that made Mikhail to Heavy, and having you by his side makes it all worth it in the end.

    Medic

    Doubt he remembers anything,.but once the memories start turning up , broski you are now his rock and he'll ugly cry on your shoulder like a little German boi who realized that piggy didn't went to the market to buy discount zucchini

    Sniper

    Feels train all the way! Strap on and hang on because koala man ain't letting any time soon

    Spy

    He is experiencing emotions unknown to him. Like bruh, how you are still with him, he always thought himself a big glup of scum, but when you say that what he has done doesn't matter and that you will help him along anytime he needs anything, we'll he never truly meant it when he said he'll marry you as a joke but just for that, that unconditional love, he'll do anything to keep you safe and sound.

    Something that still bothers me and keeps me up at night is this one AO3 user who posted a "story" that each chapter was the complete work of another fic writers and they just went full blast making fun of their works for spelling errors, whether something was "realistic" or not, whether the pairing was popular etc... and like I remember it was posted in the TF2 fandom and the "author" was like "I'm making a collection of every cringey fic and showing how bad they are. Yes I'm aware some of these people have one posted one fic but idc they need to hear the truth it they want to get better at writing." And I just cant stop thinking it was such a shitty thing to do

    Although I try to stay neutral on simping matters....

    I simp for Spy

    Although I hate everything French (imo Paris is a bastard place for bastard people) this snorting-fathering-and-leaving-kids French bastard makes my heart do backflips.
