Get. All. The Words!
This is the tier at which you get literally everything that I write here.
I'll be posting to this Patreon at max 3 times a month for the foreseeable future.
Monthly Drabble Requests
Once upon a time in fandom, drabbles -- 100-word pieces of writing -- were almost a currency. We traded them, we gifted them to each other, and we did them in challenges. I don't know when people stopped calling 100-word stories drabbles, but they're still amazing.
Once a month, you can request that I write you 100 words (possibly more, if the story requires it) in any of the universes that have been featured on my Patreon, on any subject or characters you love or want to see more of. My universes are bigger on the inside, and I love taking requests, so let's make something together.
- Will write anything you can dream up, even characters who have never interacted but you just gotta see what would happen if they did, or an AU, or the love poetry one character would write to another in a universe where people can smell the color magenta.
- Won't write anything that's harmful or bigoted, the kind of stuff you might find feverishly scrawled on the blog of a Trump supporter. If you already like the things I write, this shouldn't be hard to follow.
- NSFW is just fine, as long as it follows the rules above. I'm not writing an AU where two of my characters are in a Nazi/Jewish refugee romance, so don't ask (yes, of course someone did). Look, I make no bones about liking smut. (Har har.)
- But please don't ask if you're not 18. No smut for minors. Ever.

About Spider Perry
I've been making up stories quite literally since I could talk, and writing them down since I could hold a pencil. My first notebooks were full of made-up worlds, and I pressed my siblings into helping me build them in elaborate games of make-believe. (Both of them still have me listed in their phones as one of the characters from my earliest known story.)
Since then, I've been doodling out worlds and characters in the margins of my life; keeping a Word document open on my computer desktop became a sort of reflex. And as I grew up and came into myself, one of the things I realized was that I wasn't seeing very many people like me in the genres and worlds that I love.
If you want it, make it, right? So that's why we're both here: me, because I want to make fiction that looks more like the people I love, and you because you want to read it. I hope that's why you're here, anyway. Let's make more inclusive fiction, poetry and essays together. Allow me to entertain you and bring you more good words in worlds that include people like us as part of their essential warp and weft.
I am chronically ill and permanently disabled, so all of my rewards are set up on a per-item basis. That means that if I'm too sick to write, I don't write, and if I'm too sick to write, you don't pay. I will post at most 2 to 3 times per month, but Patreon allows you to set a max pledge on your per-item pledges, so if you have a maximum you're able to pay monthly, please set one.
All of my writing is available at the one-dollar level, because I understand a lot of us have limited budgets. Higher-level pledges allow you to have input into what I write or post next, to have greater access to the process, to ask me to write you something, or to show up in the universes we're creating together as a character.
Thank you for being here.
Let's make worlds that center us, because no worlds can contain us.
Many thanks to my patrons, and to Joy, Seanan and RoAnna, who have provided invaluable support and tutorials and the occasional kick to the ass as appropriate. I fully admit I checked out what the successful folks were doing and took notes.
At this level I guarantee two posts per month, come hell, high water, or hospitalization.
