Not quite sure this is the best place for this, but if people want to make a writing request I'd be happy to take them. They're not commissions, i'm not asking for any bits just looking for something to do. Just head over here

Hm... I'm unsure whether or not to send you on over to the
Moon Story Forge.
Anyway, surely someone else knows better than I about these matters.
However, I'd like to point out that information like:
1. Contact me somehow (note, email me, etc.) with a request for a fic you want written. I'd like to keep them relativity short. I'd hate to run out of stamina in the middle of a novel length fic.
2. Give me a timeline. (Don't be afraid to push me a little hard. I need the motivation and if you don't I'll give you one and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE hold me up to it at gunpoint if necessary.)
3. I'll accept just about anything for ideas with a few stipulations:
A. I don't like shipping but I'll still do requests if you ask, just nothing to crazy. I'll can try for regular to kawaii to D'awwabeetus level cute if you like.
B. I would really prefer not to do grim dark, I'm fine if it get's a dark, but please not to grimmy.
it brings me to deep dark places
C. You can ship but, for the love of Celestia, no Clop. I've been smut free for 4 months now and I'd like to keep it that way.
More deep dark places
D. Preferably FIM fiction, but I'll take whatever you got
should probably be in the OP (or, at the very least, something like "rules and stipulations can be found here." Anyway, I'm just being nitpicky... maybe. No matter! Here's an idea for you:
After the events of Return of Harmony, Chaos strikes again. This time it has not just subverted the bearers of the Elements, but split them into a subverted form of their character and an exaggerated/reinforced one (separate ponies, basically clones; can have slightly different coat color or other physical attribute to tell them apart). The fic would deconstruct both character extremes (the consequences of said extremes on the characters, their friends, and the environment at large) before concluding with the characters’ reconciliation with themselves and each other.
That good enough for you? Maybe? No? Bah, who needs ya. I kid.
Gonna leave a comment linking to this post in your blog just in case you aren’t watching /fic/.
Story Forge can be found here: http://ponychan.net/chan/fic/res/106451.html (it's also the first link in the sticky, which is
suggested, nay, required reading). I don't know too much about it myself, but if you posted there with a request for fic ideas I'm sure a few people might oblige.
As far as the idea I gave you, ya, that about makes sense. Each pony would be split into the "best" part of themselves and the "worst" part of themselves. Hopefully, that's something you can use.
Alright, since somehow I've encouraged this, and, consequently, committed myself to it, I'll continue this little experiment.
Only a few more hours remain in August in CDT, so I hope you've finished those 10,000 words. To win is to have bragging rights; to lose is to sit in the corner in eternal shame.
Your deadline is 00:00 GMT, Saturday, September 1st. That's about ten or so hours from the time of posting, if I'm not reading my clock or calender upside down.
Hopefully when the sun peeks over the horizon tomorrow, you'll have something to be proud of under your head as you regain some lost sleep.
If you do end up with a manuscript from this exercise, you'll have won anyway. The writing is oft the most difficult hurtle; editing and rewriting are usually minor in comparison to the mental turmoil of the rough draft.

Gah. I hate to have to do this, but I got to apologize again. I, again, failed you, and for that I'm very sorry. If this whole experience has taught me anything, it's that I have a long way to go, both in writing and in work ethic. However, It'd be nothing short of shameful if I didn't continue my work on your story, so I will press on until it comes to a conclusion. I'll keep my progress posted on FIM fiction here, http://www.fimfiction.net/story/45899/Return-of-Chaos , and will do my best to juggle school while keeping a good pace. Sorry again for disappointing you. I dissapointed myself as well if it's any constellation, but no point in me worrying about the past when there's still work to do. I'll try to keep you updated.
No manuscript, and no pride earned here. I haven't earned my chance to rest yet, so I'll keep working and I'll take it easy when it's over.
There's few things I dislike more than making a liar out of myself. =w=
