As, I humbly submit, a contemporary and a brother in arms (not to mention and enormous fan of your work), I hereby request permission to siphon out the soft center of your soul, the stuff by which you've defined yourself. I am currently undertaking a project similar to yours. Identical in spirit, in fact, if broader in scope. You will be cited and continually acknowledged for your contributions, which, as those in pursuit of our sort of specialized knowledge are more often than not completists, will most likely boost the market value of your originals. You will be handsomely compensated.
