It strikes me that Death Note is at the moment, a relatively small fandom, so I thought this might be of interest to some people, especially since there are so many talented writers and artists here.
Windsorblue has set up a community that works on the same principle as fic_on_demand to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. The community is called blood_for_fic . You make requests (like, say, Death Note, Mello/Near for example, see how it relates?), and as soon as they are fulfilled donate blood to the Red Cross or your local blood bank. It's a good way to read fic you'd like, and do a good thing at the same time :)
All information about the community can be found in the userinfo, and in this post;http://www.livejournal.com/community/blood_for_fic/489.html#cutid1
Please join if you're interested, since the comunity can't flourish without members.
(Mods can feel free to delete this if it's too off topic).
Thank you for reading.
