They're both. Try not to let the dichotomy mess with your head too much.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Here's a link for general help info on finding amazon goodies through the astore.: http://www.losttv-forum.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=85061e

As the old woman said when she peed in the sea, "Every little bit helps."

There's actually some overlap between their spheres if you look at them as abstractions. They work better, IMO, as human-like but with abstraction-related day jobs. And how important each Endless is to their responsibilities seems to vary, though we don't know what would have happened in our world if The Prodigal hadn't gone all hippy. All we know is that, with Morpheus imprisoned, some denizens of his realm caused problems (like Gob and Brute did) and others (like Fiddler's Green) helped out.
