My open question to Neil Gaiman

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Neil Gaiman has a blog/site/thing that you can and should check out if you care at all about fantasy.  You’ll be glad you did.  I amuse myself by thinking that I could write him a question he might be entertained by.  I further amuse myself by thinking you, the reader, will be entertained as well.

Mr Neil Gaiman,

I was wondering if you had thought much about having the questions asked of you printed in bold.  I appreciate being able to distinguish your voice from the voices of others, but as you bold your text, the rest of the internet is slowly lightening in tone as if there is a finite amount of black that you are using up.  I’m worried that since I have this idea for a website that involves a lot of black in the hopes of making a webpage as much a rockstar as I can possibly make it.  Everyone looks there most rockstarish in black.  Even you.  Even Adam Lambert.  Similarly, so would my website.  Well, I’m worried that by the time I get there, the site will look sort of washed out.

See I don’t want you to stop answering the questions, I like your writing style even if you are just describing things that should be boring such as cities and graveyards.  But selfishly, I’d hate for your use of black to overshadow the possibility that I myself might want it someday.

I hope this was entertaining.  It’s only fair after all.  Isn’t it?
