"Wings" as it is now is almost unrecognizable from how it began. It started its life when I was only 12 years old, banging out stories on my early 00's laptop because the feeling of keys under my fingers was nice. It was given life through study halls in the computer lab and long nights of inspiration in the humid summer air. Over time the story grew, every revision changed something. 

Wings has been and always will be my baby, it's been with me through good times and bad, but I've never really known what I was going to do with it once I decided it was finished. The vague specter of "publish it!" always hung over my head, but I had no idea where to start. After halfhearted query letters and a search for an agent that began and ended with "good luck," I realized that making it big wasn't what was important to me, telling the story was. The one place where I could tell it the way I wanted to without compromise was the internet. So, dear friends, here we are. 

The continuation of the story is not dependent on the success of this Patreon. How much time I have to spend on it, however, is. Want to have more of a say in where the tale goes from here? Now you can. Some of my best ideas have come from my friends and fans. If you want to become more involved in the blog or just speed up production, this is the place to do it. Every little bit helps and even if you're just a lurker, this story is for you too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading, I hope you enjoy reading The Wings of Atlantis as much as I enjoy writing it. 

Honor, Valor, Justice.

All right nugget, welcome to the GLA Starforce. You've earned your patch and your wings, and that ain't nothin'. You make me proud. Your name shall be featured in the credits and all chapters will be sent to you a day early. 
Flight Lieutenant
$5 or more per month 0 patrons
A few tours under your belt, you've seen some action. Not exactly summer camp, eh LT? $5 a month gets you access to previews, all patron only posts and access to each new chapter a whole week early. 
1st Lieutenant
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
You are one seasoned pilot. Your squadron's got your back, you respond faster to your callsign than your name. This rank gets you the rewards for Flight Lieutenant, as well as access to lore footnotes and details of the Wings universe, including technical drawings and art.  
Captain
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
If you've been flying this long you're doing something right. Everyone on the flight deck knows your name, and the Deck Master has gone through five Falcon's worth of parts fixing your plane. This rank gets you access to all previous rewards and access to the Wings of Atlantis Discord server. Captains and up should have a place to talk tactics and make suggestions afterall. 
Commander
$30 or more per month 0 of 10 patrons
You were either good enough or stubborn enough to get your own command. You stand in the center of the CIC, bold, brave, and ready to fight. Your crew is awaiting orders, sir. All previous tier rewards shall be yours, along with a Discord chat each month on where we're going and what's coming up.  If you're ready to spend this much, I want to hear your thoughts. GLA high command takes all of it's commanders very seriously. 
Fleet Admiral
$50 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
You've been in this war as long as it's been going. A fleet of ships is at your command, and the council issues orders directly to you. Your uniform is adorned with medals, your eyes have seen more than any nugget can imagine. You are the GLA, and I, for one, salute you. All previous tier rewards, and a unique privilege, The Admiral's Boon. If you're in this deep, I'm guessing you're pretty crazy or pretty passionate, maybe a little of both. As such, you've probably got a few headcanons. Within reason (eg. nothing that is blatantly racist, sexist, pedophilic, what have you), I will strike the head from that and make it just plain old canon. Exact detail of how, what, when, etc. to be determined by the both of us at the appropriate time. 
Goals
$0 of $100 per month
GLA patches will be issued to all $5 and up patrons. Well done troops, wear 'em with pride!
