I don't have the means to make a professional video...
PLEASE READ AT LEAST A LITTLE OF THIS PROPOSAL BEFORE CLICKING AWAY!
Every pen can be a rifle and people can be birds
and letters can be bullets if you turn them into words ~From The Novel
Even the smallest donation is the gift of opportunity, and that is all that I ask for... a chance.
Please read the following and consider giving me the opportunity to live my dream:
In 2012, I completed a 280,000 word One Direction Fanfiction that was unlike any other 1D fanfic out there.
It deals with politics, homosexual relationships (as many of the characters are gay), religion, social issues, and even the 'N' word.
This quickly became one of the most popular One Direction fanfictions after promotion from fanfic-rater and the author of the famed fanfic Room 317.
This work cannot be published through regular means, and here is why:
This is a 280,000 word tome. It was written as an elaborate Armageddon style manifesto on society and has many words and themes with which the conservative public would disagree. Those two things alone make it an impossible investment for traditional publishing.
However, I want to get the message out because it is a message that everyone needs to hear.
While the names of the characters will be changed, the message and story will remain the same.
This book tells you the things that your teachers and parents never did.
This book does not preach a message for Atheists; this book does not preach a message for Christians; this book preaches a message for everyone: love and tolerance.
Novel's Working TItle: 15 Minutes
A sinister church has risen to international social/political dominance.
A teenager starts a protest band that unwittingly becomes the face of a world wide movement against the evil in this church.
As society battles with different ideas of what is good and what is evil, the boys realize that they are more than a band.
Niall see's dead people; Zayn suffers from a possessed hand; Louis has prophetic dreams; Liam is a conflicted member of the church, and Harry may or may not be the new Teenage Christ.
The story is told in a combination of rhyme and prose with original songs written for the work. (Some of these songs have been recorded and given to diehard readers of the book.)
The story has fortune tellers, circus clowns, colorful acrobats, magic talismans, foreshadowing ghosts, talking pigeons, kidnapping, terrorism, romance (both gay and straight), an angel with carved off wings, songs that play backwards, John F. Kennedy, and a mystery that follows the story until the very end.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
"If I could leave you with only one thought, it would be that life sucks; life is random; life is short, and life is unfair, but it isn't God who makes life hard. It is people." The Ghost-In-The-Light looked down at Louis with a watery smile. "It is people just like us. It is the people who don't hold the door for the person behind them, who laugh at the failures of others, who lie to gain advantage, who hoard profits and pay too little for work that is far too hard."
"Is that really what they think of us in the afterlife?"
The Ghost-In-The-Light nodded.
"In your world, everyone is a killer," it continued. "Everyone wears others down bit by bit, slight by slight, snub by snub, and broken heart by broken heart. We are all serial killers. The only difference is that some people prefer to kill fast, and some people find it easier to kill over time and in smaller amounts.”
“Well, I wish I could change everything,” Louis looked at the ground, “but I am only one person.”
“One person can't change everything,” the Ghost replied. “One person cannot build a skyscraper; one person cannot run a government; one person cannot create a revolution, but one person can start.”
“How do I start?”
“Remember that people are fragile and that you should handle each other with care. Do this instead of asking why God allows bad things to happen and why life is so hard. Life is only hard because you are too close to the problem to see that life could be wonderful if everyone wanted it to be.”
Please, give me a chance by reading the first chapter.

Many people feel this novel contains in appropriate material. Four of the leads are gay characters, one of the leads is a Muslim who is NOT portrayed as a nutty terrorist, there is an open debate on religion and the human condition. All of this is a hard sale for someone who lives in a very small town in the South.
The cost of printing such a long book is also a hard sale. 280,000 words = around 1,000 pages.
A publishing house would try and censor this work. I released this story as a fanfic online because I knew that nobody would have access to it otherwise.
If this book were to take off, I am prepared to face the protests and backlash associated with it. Someone had to go this far. Someone had to ask these questions.
The cost of advertising on facebook ads, etc, will quickly rise. I am prepared to go into debt if I have to in order to get this book out there.
I just need the help of people who believe in me in order to kickstart this effort.
Please believe in me.
I need you to.
Because, if just one person reads this and it helps them through their day.... it was all worth it.
