What do you know? What can you tell us? What is your take on Death Note?
There is so much talent, skill and knowledge out there in the Death Note community that we thought it a shame not to allow room for expression.
Thus a brand new feature for Death Note News was conceived. Now you get to see it born.
Every month, from February 2016, we will declare a new character, theme, item, arena or some other aspect related to Death Note.
This will be our focus for the whole fandom to contribute towards, should the muse and inclination take you. It won't supplant our usual content, but augment it. Nor will that be the last time that a subject might be covered, or community content be included.
The Death Note News Month of... category merely ignites a spotlight. You will view more upon a given topic than normal, from a greater pool of contributors, for a solitary calendar month.
What Content Will be Welcome for Month of.. Death Note Topics?
Death Note academics! Have you ever pondered a point, or thought it would be good to investigate and report back upon something within the genre? This is your big moment to drag that vague musing out into the open and let the rest of the fandom share your findings.
Musicians! Has something or someone in the manga inspired your compositions? Do you have a kick-ass cover version of a theme lurking in your video channel? Share with us. We want to hear!
Cooks, chefs, cocktail mixers and bakers! Have you ever knocked up a Watari salad or a Sachiko Yagami soufflé? Bring forth your recipes, let us nom.
RPers unite! AMV collators, please link! Death Note video short makers, why have we not yet seen your stuff?
In short, if you've got it, we want to see it; if you make it, we want to wow over it; if you can conceptualize it, then this is show and tell time right here.
Come on, Death Note fandom, bring us what you've got!
How to Participate in the Death Note News Month of.. Focus
You will also discover a ready-made FileDrop box, wherein larger media - art, music, videos et al - may be submitted for inclusion in the feature. They will be picked up and sifted through by the team here, then posted publicly for your fifteen minutes of fame and glory. Probably on an 'as they come' basis, with no real waiting on ceremony.
Expect all the diversity in our collective scope and vision.
Death Note Month of... Names and Dates for your Calendar
The inaugural focus for the next four months will be:
You may include anything vaguely related in each broad spectrum. Like Wammy's House for Watari or moral imperatives for Light, or even the reality of modern policing in Japan for Matsuda.
If it can be crow-barred into the categorisation, we'll aid and abet you getting it in.
It's anticipated that many of those sharing their work or thoughts with us aren't used to doing so in such a public forum. They may be nervous as Hell and hoping just that someone reads, and comments, and likes it. That's you, in the frame.
Good luck, good fight and off you go!
