The hour has struck! Signups are open from now until the end of the day on January 31st. (any timezone; we’re not super picky.)

There are a few things we want to call your attention to, before you plunge in:

1) Our list of supported nonprofits includes some of the same organizations as last year, as well as several new ones. (A couple of last year’s orgs grew enough to shoot past our $10 million-a-year ceiling, which is actually pretty awesome for them.) It’s also possible for creators to select one additional nonprofit where their bidders can send donations; if you’re thinking of pursuing this course, please be sure to read our policy on donations to outside organizations.

2) As part of an effort to boost fan labor, we’re piloting a project called the Regiment of Fan Laborers (ROFL.) You can read all the details here, but we want to highlight two things:

  • Anyone who signs up for fan labor will be given the option to sign on for the ROFL
  • Anyone who signs up as a writer will be eligible to partner with someone from the ROFL for help and support with their FTH fic. We can’t guarantee there will be someone in the ROFL who meets your exact needs, though, so feel free to bid on individual labor auctions if you know what you’re looking for.

3) Though we still aren’t including tangible fancrafts as part of the auction (we explain why in our FAQ,) this year we will have a Fan Crafts Bazaar. The full details and a signup will be up soon!

4) Lastly, because of some updates we’ve made to the signup form regarding how fandoms are classified, the signup form is now, technically, 54 pages long. But don’t worry! You won’t see 54 pages. That number includes pages for every single subfandom menu. Nobody is going to see more than about seven or eight screens, even if all three of your fandoms break down into separate subfandoms. We’re mentioning this only because we don’t want anyone to flip out when they see “page 1 of 54″ in the bottom right corner (which would be a reasonable reaction.)

Look, shit is pretty bad right now. We appear to be in the early stages of a major global war. Large parts of the world are literally on fire. Antisemitism and anti-blackness are on the rise throughout the US,

and both LGBTQ+ rights and women’s rights are under increasingly dire threat, at both national and local levels. It’s a crappy way to start a
decade.

If you’re like us, you’re feeling torn between wanting
to retreat into fandom and wishing you could do something to help fix
at least a little bit of everything that’s going wrong.

The good news is: you can do both at the same time. Fandom Trumps Hate is
back for a fourth (fourth!) year, raising money for a host of excellent
organizations that are resisting the Trump agenda and fighting to
protect those whom it seeks to harm. We’re hoping you’ll be back to
join us, and help make this the biggest and most successful auction yet.

This
post has (almost*) everything you need to know – a full calendar, plus
links to all of the important information about this year’s auction all
in one convenient, easily-rebloggable post! Please help us spread the
word to friends and followers.

AUCTION WEEK INFO

We reached the halfway point! We’re so impressed by everyone’s kindness and generosity so far; we love seeing bidders and creators cheer on one another as they bid and get bid on…which is why we hope you’ll support our golden needle auctions!

What are golden needles, you ask? These are auctions that are less active but just as wonderful and deserving of bids. With 523 auctions, we want to make sure that no one gets lost in the haystack—hence why we have a dedicated “golden needle” category on our auction site to make these hidden treasures easier to find.

This tag gives everyone a chance to be bid on and allows bidders to find new creators they aren’t familiar with and/or auctions they can afford. We know that some people don’t have much money to spare but still want to bid, and this is a great way to find auctions that are within budget!

While many of our auctions offer fic or art, we also have exciting offers for beta services (editing, soundboarding/planning, historical accuracy, fact-checking, culture-picking, etc.), crafts, digital works (graphics/edits, gifsets, manips, mood boards, etc.), podfics, translations, and videos. There are several one-of-a-kind auctions on offer, so feel free to browse the golden needle pages in their entirety. To search the golden needles by work type or rating, use the filters to the right of the page.

For those of you who want to narrow down your search to your favorite fandoms, ships, and characters, you can do so by searching multiple keywords (e.g., ship: stony “golden needle” for Steve/Tony golden needles). Please refer to our tag list to see all of our tags and some search tips and our search guide for instructions on doing a multiple keyword search.

We’d also like to remind creators that your starting bid and bid increment can still be changed if your auction has not yet received a bid. If you’d like to make a change, please email us at marveltrumpshate+creators@gmail.com or ping @mod on our Discord server with the details.

We hope that you’ll support all of our lovely golden needles. Let’s try to get a bid for every auction!

Have you ever been annoyed at love triangles because you could see that the best solution was to simply have them all live happily ever after together?

Have you ever considered the delicious multiplication of unrequited pining when there are more than two characters angsting over their feelings? And how fantastic the resolution would be?

Do the complexities of poly ship dynamics intrigue you? Do you really want to see cute art of all your faves happy together?

If you answered yes to any of the above, Marvel Trumps Hate has just the thing for you!

MTH 2019 has 117 auctions offering at least one polyamorous ship option, with all kinds of work types available, from vids to art to beta services! This year, you can browse our spreadsheet of creators and click directly to their auction listing once you find an offer that catches your fancy. You can also copy and paste column F of the spreadsheet to get a ready-made HTML-code version of the list, which we invite you to share in any Marvel polyship communities that you’re in.

We suggest that if you don’t find your particular ship offered this year, you go to our website, marveltrumpshate.com, and use our extensive search options to look for auctions that are offering “Character/Any” auctions (just type one of the characters in your poly ship, followed by /Any, and all offerings that include that text will show up!) as those creators may be open to offering poly ships! Remember that it’s a good idea to ask creators if they’re willing to create for a pairing before you bid on them.

So off you go to explore—maybe you’ll discover a new OTP along the way!

AUCTION WEEK INFO

We’re 20 hours into the auction, and we’re absolutely thrilled by our progress so far. Thank you! Let’s keep the momentum going.

We have a few important updates to share:

  • If you have trouble accessing Tumblr creator posts from our creator list, please view them on your mobile browser or on a computer. Alternatively, you can also search for that creator’s name on mthofferings while on the Tumblr app and find their post that way.
  • We have a fantastic new feature this year: the auction watchlist! You can create an account and put auctions on your watchlist. That way, you can see them all and watch their progress on one handy page instead of needing to bookmark a folder of links.
  • Bidders will receive outbid emails. Please make sure that you choose a non-Yahoo email address that you check often to make your bids. This is how we will contact bidders if they win an auction, and you will need to be reachable throughout the next year.

We’re over the moon about all of the wonderful creators who signed up for Marvel Trumps Hate! One thing to keep in mind when perusing auctions is that while we have some exciting established names on our list, we also have a lot of creators who are new to the Marvel fandom (or new to creating works for the fandom) who are also amazing and deserving of bids.

We encourage you to take a chance on creators you discover while looking through our auctions because no matter what you bid on, you’ll be supporting worthy causes. This is also your chance to get something for a rarepair you adore or a niche universe in the Marvel fandom, so browse through our extensive tag list and check out the creators offering them. You can also narrow down your search on our auction site by using specific keyword combinations—our search guide can help you there!

Thank you again for your support and patience so far. Let’s keep bidding and spreading the word about everyone’s auctions!

EDIT: This post is inclusive to ALL art forms.

Likes can only go so far for artists. Artists may exclusively upload their artwork to tumblr, or don’t have the time to use other sites and prefer tumblr over deviantART due to its simplicity, but the tagging system can make it harder to navigate. Many artists on tumblr tag with high-traffic tags or use their own tags to prevent tag clogging which eventually become lost. That’s why it’s very important to reblog an artist’s work. 

I’m not trying to push you to ruin your blog’s aesthetic or something, nor am I saying that “you must absolutely reblog your favourite artist’s work or you’re trash”, all I’m saying is if you truly want to support your favourite artist, instead of just liking their posts, try to reblog them once in a while. The more reblogs they receive, the more exposure/notes/followers they may receive, and it’s just one of the easiest ways to show you care about them.

*This does not mean to reblog unsourced artwork or works reuploaded to another person’s blog without permission (re:stolen). Nor does this mean to reblog artworks without the artist’s consent, even if this case is slim.
