Let’s Get the Ball Rolling

Thank you so much for your input everyone! I’ll try and sum up what I read and my responses (sorry if I miss something here):

  • Donations won’t hurt. Unless you overwork, then STAHP IT.
    • <3
  • Apply for other grants.
    • Doing this! Even writing to the ones that need essays… >.<
  • Cut back on college to part time.
    • Impossible! Transferring out from this city college to a proper 4 yr next fall semester and I need full time to finish in time! Upside is I’ve finished quite a large portion of my bachelor already…
  • $50-$70/Chapter
    • This seems high… I’ll start at the minimum suggested and see how that works. If it turns out that is too much–as I suspect–I’ll lower it!
  • Put off translating until I have more time
    • … But I like translating. :<
  • Don’t do a $-for-chapter system.
    • I fear that might cause me to slack off honestly…
  • Donations won’t be steady cash, don’t rely on it
    • I’m definitely going through multiple avenues for cash right now! (Including working on getting the $2500/semester back, though it looks unlikely…)
  • Move to England.
    • That would be amazing. Oh well.



I’ll be putting up the donate buttons here in a moment and start TLing again right now. I think I should have an extra 1 chapter of each thing TLed in advance so that I don’t get overwhelmed… so I’ma try and do that. $50/chapter will be what I start at but will lower it if that is too high.


I’ll put up a proper donation explanation page later tonight or tomorrow in the morning. For now, I’ll go with this:



  1. Two chapters per week. Subject to change as my schedule allows. Cycle between FH > DB > HP. Consider The Restart chapters freebies.
  2. Three extra chapters per week maximum.
  3. No chapters during midterms and finals.


I’ll notify everyone in advance if any of the rules change. Note that any changes will be on the soon-to-be-posted Donations page.


On a side note, I made some custom donate buttons… because reasons. The bright yellow would look weird with my site’s theme. I’ll add donation trackers… once I figure out how they work.
