Well, I've gotten you to this page, surely that's half the battle of convincing you. I'm about to full-on grovel at your feet here, hopefully in a charming way. My lack of pride can be viewed as a very endearing trait, I'll have you know.

Alright, you got me, I'm here. What is Patreon and why should I care?
Patreon gives creators the ability to earn an income from what they create. The internet has given creators many platforms to advertise their work and garner a following, but very few of these sites give creators a way to get paid to do what they love (which, in turn, means they can do more of what they love). With this website you can pledge a monthly amount to a creator you want to support, or pledge once and cancel your subscription as a donation to the creator in question (pick me, pick me!). 

Fair enough... Wait a minute, who ARE you?
I'm glad you asked. No, really, I love to talk about myself. The name's Kali, I'm 21 years old, and I'm pansexual/non-binary (gender labels are weird for me right now because I'm tryna find the right one, but essentially I'm okay with any pronouns so don't stress!). I'm from the east coast of Canada and I have big goals in life, such as owning a small humble home just big enough for me and my menagerie of animals that I love so dearly.

And what do I do that is deserving of your potential support beyond just being gay and loving dogs a lot? I tell stories. For the past four years, I've been comfortably sharing my writing on Wattpad with the pseudonym MelancholyMango, mainly youtuber fanfiction. More recently, I've been posting fanfiction for Voltron on Ao3 under the same name. And in the future, I want to hopefully keep up with fanfiction while also expanding my horizons into original writing!

Mainly, though the genre and plot varies greatly from story-to-story, my novels are dedicated to a young adult audience and trying to normalize/provide representation for people that are often silenced in mainstream society. So far, this has meant showcasing healthy, happy LGBT+ romantic relationships as well as providing insight into characters suffering from mental illness while detailing their journey toward a healthy recovery and the progress/setbacks they experience along the way.

Though, I should also warn you, sometimes I write garbage. This can mean supernatural junk for the fun of it or nsfw content. You get moving, inspirational content or hot flaming garbage. If you happen to like both, you've come to the right place. 

Writing is the most important part of my life, I have so many stories left to tell. Writing is what drives me, what makes the bad days worth it. The list of things I would give up in order to guarantee I could keep doing this thing I love more than anything else in the world? That list is long.

Okay, I'm listening, now tell me what's in it for me?
Rewards!!! Everyone likes rewards, do they not? If you glance over to the right of this page, you're going to see some different "tiers"; these are your options as a supporter. Depending on the amount you pledge, you will receive access to exclusive content and bonus rewards along the way. And, no matter how much or how little you contribute, you can rest easy knowing that you are supporting me and helping me toward my goal of being able to provide my audience with as much content as humanly possible. 

Even if you can only spare a dollar each month, those dollars will be worth inherently more than any other dollar I receive. If you give me a monthly pledge, it's a guaranteed reliable income no matter how small, which is something I won't have on any other site.

You got me, I'm considering. Anything else to say?
The fact of the matter is, this is what I want to do with my life. I don't want to have to sacrifice my passion. I don't want to give up. It's hard to reason with yourself to dedicate so much time to something when the whole world is telling you that money is more important. I'm determined to stick with it though, I'm determined to tell stories and hopefully provide solace for young people just like me. In ten years time, I want to be the person making things that people care about enough to write fanfiction for.
