I read this as a kid and it had a really significant effect on me and and it’s a big influence on my world view and I still think it’s the most beautiful and profound thing anyone’s ever said about beauty

Have you ever had one of those times when you can’t get to the comic shop for weeks and then you get there and The Movement, Red Sonja, and Batgirl are there for you all at once?

The audience are our customers. Just because WE like something doesn’t mean THEY will like something. And ultimately, it doesn’t really matter what WE like because if THEY don’t buy our product, then we’re just a bunch of assholes flinging crap at a piece of paper and nodding in smug condescension that we know better than everybody else.
We work for THEM. And while we’re not always going to see eye-to-eye on some things, we just have to hope that we DO understand them enough to know what they’ll want and need. And if we don’t enjoy the things that we’re producing at the moment, then we either have to live with it until a better opportunity comes along or decide to do something else with our creativity, since there IS an audience for everything out there and someone WILL appreciate it.
But in the end, WE work for the audience. If we’re really damn good, we can produce something they want that they didn’t realize they wanted, especially if it’s something they need, but never, EVER say that it’s not our job to give them what they want.
Because without them, we are NOTHING.

Queen Amidala: I was not elected to watch my people suffer and die while you discuss this invasion in a committee!
Queen Amidala: Our people are dying, Senator. We must do something quickly to stop the Federation.
Senator Palpatine: To be realistic, your Majesty. I think we are going to have to accept Federation control for the time being.
Queen Amidala: That is something I cannot do.
This is probably the best, non-judgmental description of fan fiction I’ve ever heard of in main stream media.
Possibly relevant that fanfiction as we know it today was largely invented by women, too.
And that is why Randi and Ian’s adventures live on for me. :)
