And thinking about it in the shower today, I began wondering about the possibility of a monthly online H/D zine - one that could include meta, a bit of discussion and more importantly fanworks of various lengths. It would still be a bit of a challenge for authors and maybe the fanworks could be left anonymous till the next month's issue of the zine comes out. Also, since it would only get released once every 30 days, readers and authors would get a bit of a breather.
Any thoughts about something like that? It would be different from the trend right now where authors and readers seem to focus primarily on the fests for their fix of H/D - the waits between fests are painful and then the deluge of fics can be just as overwhelming. A monthly zine with various topics on the Harry/Draco ship would make me go \o/ because it wouldn't be just enjoying the fanworks but there's the potential for more interaction via discussion. And the best part - new meta, woot!
(So now you might want to poke holes at the idea, lol since I'm geting ahead of myself)
ETA: Imagine a monthly (continued) H/D comic strip by artists! Eeek *_* A zine would be so awesome...*happy happy sigh*
