Check out our work here at Strongwind Academy!

You've made it this far, and already we are thanking you with all of our hearts! Strongwind Academy is essentially our baby, and we put endless hours of work into perfecting it and providing the content that we feel you as viewers DESERVE! We've seen what people want, and here we are trying to give it to you. Is there something else? You can always shoot us a message on Tumblr or at [email protected] and we will do our very best to accommodate the desires and wishes of our audience. We love you all, after all.

Now, what the frick frack dickle dack do we need money for? Unfortunately, pizza and coffee and other essentials such as Netflix and occasionally a desire for jelly beans cost money. No, really, we spend a lot of hours on this project, and as human beings we do have needs. Which happen to costs money.

We ask for your pledge so that we may continue to provide you content. All four of us have time-consuming jobs, and half of us still attend school full time. That's a lot of time that we don't have to do work on the site, which means a lot of long nights getting our stories and multi-media up to date. Don't get us wrong, we'd do it again in a heartbeat, we love our work no matter how difficult it is, but we come to you as creators to ask for your support in what you love to read to continue making content as often and as consistent as we do. Upwards of 6 stories and three snippets a week, plus text messages, takes a long time, I assure you! Even between four people, it can become extremely difficult to put out in the time we have.

Don't have money you can give us? Guess what! We still love you, and we will STILL provide you our very best content. You can still help us, too! Like our facebook, follow our twitter and tumblr. Share, tweet, reblog, all that fun stuff and spread the word! Every fan is precious to us, and the more the merrier!

Now, what do you get out of it? You already have our love.

To the left you will see our milestones- a promise of extra content with each one reached. More stories for you, behind the scene looks at just how we plot and intense digs into the heads of our beloved characters. We thank you for each and every milestone - every dollar given to us is a dollar adored. Below, you will see the increments by which you can donate. Each tier is filled to the brim with as many thank you's we could think of! Donate what you feel comfortable, and we'll do the rest.

Thank you so much!

Milestones: 

$20: Shitty Character Drawings - As our first thank you, Hara and Lupa will be working together to bring you absolutely terrible drawings of our characters every week exclusively to Patreon! Hope you like it!
$50: Alternate Universe - With our second milestone, we will begin the tradition of releasing a new official alternate universe that could be ANYTHING for every milestone to come! We're so excited to show you all that we've come up with.
$100: Character Study - Every Monday we'll put together a hefty character study, biography and analysis of a character that may come from your suggestions! Each character you see has a history of their own, and we're excited to share them with you. Plus, another AU!
$250: Podcasts - Here we will begin three new pieces of content that will be available to you on Sundays. The second Sunday of every month will be a podcast discussing character development, plots, how we come up with the things we do, and just anything we'd like to talk about, the third a podcast of us plotting and doing nothing of interest, and the fourth Sunday will be us reading aloud our own work, for better or for worse. You may even get to vote on what we read :).
AND MORE EXCITING STUFF TO COME!

FAQ:

Why should I pay for this?
You are by no means obligated! We work hard to make sure that our work is freely available to those who want to read it, because our first priority is interacting with our fans and providing them the best experience. That being said, we offer you the equivalent of a full book each month. Buying an E-Book every month could cost you anywhere from $1-$5. A hard copy could be upwards of $20. With all we have to offer, we think are tiers are fair.

Why are your milestones so high?
We won't lie, our milestones stretch far, though we've done our best to provide you rewards at the lowest cost possible. However, unlike many projects here on Patreon, there are four of us. Every dollar is split four ways, and that means what we get is significantly less than what the group receives. Some of the milestones, such as our dream comic, or the dream of making that screenwriting into reality, will take money themselves. We expect to pay upwards of $500 a month, if not more, to commission a quality artist for those comics. Nevermind the potential costs of moving toward the screen.

WOW! OKAY! You're getting too kind here, but at this rate you will receive all sorts of extra content about characters and the organizations with extensive histories and shit. I can't tell you everything, but god will you love it! (We might even post some of our old, horribly written stories just for you to laugh at us.) Along with exclusive content, you will receive free PDFs of story compilations (Something we plan to do every other month). And of course, you too will be receiving a week advance of all new content, as well as podcasts.

Always wanted to request a specific scene? Between any characters you want, in any scenario? And we mean any? Here you go, you can request a drabble piece that is guaranteed to be at least 500 words, if not more, depending on your request. Plus you'll be receiving everything in the prior tiers INCLUDING access to both the biweekly and 24 hour chats!
Goals
$0 of $20 per month
Baby steps, but help us get to $20 a month and both Lupa and Hara will be releasing character drawings exclusively to Patreon every week! We're not professional artists so we can't guarantee any semblance of quality, but we'll try our best ;).
