I don’t know if anyone remembers this small campaign, but no matter if you do or you don’t - I have a proposition…
I am going to be meeting Amanda Tapping at Asylum in May, and I thought it would be a cool idea to let her know about the savenaomi campaign (modest as it was). I’m planning to take a print out of one of the posters to give to her - just so she knows Naomi wasn’t utterly reviled by the fandom! :)
But as I was printing the poster out I got to thinking - it would be nice if I could pass on a little more. Maybe some messages from the guys who took part in the campaign, or even just messages from anyone who loves Naomi/Amanda.
And since we have these GORGEOUS headers designed like government letterheads I thought - hey, if I collected all those messages together, I could print them out on paper headed by these letterheads, put them in a manila envelope, and it would be like a top secret file. Befitting of Naomi’s character, no?
So - for anyone who took part in the campaign, or anyone who loves Naomi/Amanda, and wants to pass on a message to her (even if that message is as simple as ‘I loved you as Naomi!’), this is my plan of action:
- You write the message you would like sent to Amanda in the savenaomi ask box (keep it no longer than one ask please).
- I will send you an ask in response to let you know I’ve received the message (so if you don’t get a response from me within a couple of days assume tumblr has eaten the message and send it again).
- I will keep the ask box open from now until 11th May (the last weekend before the con)
- Then I will print out all the messages on pages headed by the above letterhead, put them in a manila envelope along with a couple of print outs of savenaomi posters and take them to the con!
I will credit each message with the tumblr username of the sender unless you tell me otherwise (which you are welcome to do!).
I will also try and scan copies of the final pages so I can post them on the savenaomi tumblr, along with photos of the 'file’ I end up passing to Amanda, so everyone knows exactly what she received :)
And should anyone have any other ideas about something nice to include in this 'file’ just let me know, I’m open to suggestion!
