Notes: For dog_daies, August 11, 2009, 'author appeal'.
"Getting a little preachy, aren't you?" Ethan asked as he looked up from the paper draft of Myra Z's feature article for the next issue of Remote Transmissions.
"Mmm?" Myra had her mouth full of carryout Mexican - her current fixation. Ethan didn't think it looked as appealing as Myra did, but he said nothing. He'd stick to less messy fare, at least for the time being.
"About halfway through discussing new manga licenses, you just sort of go off about supporting the industry." Ethan didn't think it was bad - but it was heavy-handed for that particular article.
"Oh." Myra was quiet for a moment. "You can edit it?"
"You could spin it off into an editorial instead?" Ethan suggested.
"Well..." Myra shrugged.
"We're not exactly an unbiased publication," Ethan reminded her.
Myra nodded and poked at her food for a moment.
"We could do an entire issue of opinions," she said after a moment. "Opinions, asking people to support the industry..."
"Thoughts on yaoi," they said in perfect unison.
Ethan chuckled. Myra grinned.
"We could make it a special issue, ask for feedback, and print more reader mail--"
"All the opinions?"
"Good and bad," Ethan confirmed. "We'll have to run the whole project by Rhyn and Rae, though. But I'll make some notes."
"It'd be an interesting issue..."
"An issue of issues?" Maybe, Ethan thought, it would be more of a headache than it was worth.
Myra pushed her takeout over toward him and smiled. "Try it?"
Ethan looked from her to the food and back again. Well... it never really hurt to try new things.
