Scene at work today …  
Lovely editorial assistant who we are all so fond of: And so I'll be doing my honours this year …
Lovely team: Oooh! What on?
LEAWWAASFO: Harry Potter fan fiction and fan communities.
Me: [Momentary eye widening] I know an English Professor in New Jersey whose work touches on similar materials, would you like me to see if he has time to chat?
LEAWWAASFO: Ooh, yes please!
Me: Triff! Must dash! [Muffled laughter from offstage.]

suttonwriter, would you have time to talk to a lovely young woman? I am going to introduce her to Sherlock, too, because she was wanting to talk about how fan communities influence creators, and it seemed like the most obvious bet.

And if one of you out there happens to BE our LEAWWAASFO, surprise! And SSSSSSSSSHHHH!

In other news, North America, I have found all your heat! It's here! So tired, so unable to sleep … Stay warm you lot, stay cool our lot, you chaps back home stay dry, and you Scandinavians, well, at least you can get some work done outside.

Re: *sheepishly appears*
You were exactly on time :-)

And it's been lovely, though I need to fall over and sleep. Is it OK if I give her your email?

Re: *sheepishly appears*
Sure. Ask her to tell me she's Brammer's friend, so I'll remember who s/he is.
