Homework is basically a couple of writing prompts to get you thinking about some aspects of fandom-- here's my own response to one of them. For the moment it's a totally casual effort, but I'd actually really like to turn it into a weekly contest-- but you guys have to give me a decent enough response to justify it!
Also, if you take the question to an off-site blog, be sure to give me a heads up about it. I want to read any and all responses! This week's questions were:
Find some Takarazuka elements in shoujo manga or anime series-- OTHER than the following: Utena, Princess Knight, Rose of Versailles. Note that the mention or appearance of Takarazuka (such as in Ouran High School Host Club) isn't the same as the series actually containing “elements of” Takarazuka!
Have you ever experienced “fan delusion” (as described in Friedman's article, mentioned above)? Do creators 'owe' fans anything, and if so, what? Do fans owe anything in addition to payment for the creators' works?
Feel free to leave feedback on the idea in the comments-- including what kind of prizes you'd like to see!
