Fan Art Appreciation

Segregation and Miscommunication in our Fandom

I'm tossing my hat in the ring to comment on the discussion (started here by katekat1010) about the su_herald</lj> .  First, I want to say how much I appreciate the time the editors devote to compiling rec lists.  It's a lengthy process that is perceived as more of a service the community expects rather than one the community thanks you for (I mean this in the sense of how many times do herald posts get comments saying "Thanks for the rec!" from writers or readers--and this is LJ here so communication is about commenting).

Any questions?

Ask me a question about one of my stories. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about my plans for future parts of a current series if you want to, but keep in mind that I may not have anything firm/definite in the works. Anything. Whatever you ask, I will try my best to answer.

This seems like a lovely diversion.  And in the spirit of the day in discussing our community on LJ, I've been thinking about those who might read my journal that I haven't met yet.  Maybe I'll get lucky and one of you might comment below...

Want. Take. Have.

Um, I want this DVD on TV screenwriting. Seriously, I love listening to Joss talk about writing and I love listening to Tim Minear after watching that one convention he did with Jane Espenson.  So yeah.  *wants*

Anybody else have something they've been yearning to buy but it's just not the right moment?
