MJOLMEW’S HOLIDAY PACIFIC RIM GIVEAWAY
Hey guys! It’s the holiday season which means it’s a great time for giving, and what better thing to give away to my followers than Pacific Rim stuff? I bought all of these things impulsively a while back, but I think they should go to a home that would love and appreciate them a bit more than I do.
So here’s the deal! There will be SIX WINNERS in all.
- THREE THIRD PRIZE WINNERS will receive their choice of:
— Pacific Rim magnets (kaiju or Jaegers)
— Pacific Rim buttons (kaiju)
- TWO SECOND PRIZE WINNERS will receive their choice of:
— Striker Eureka dog tags
— G*psy Danger phase one action figure
- ONE FIRST PRIZE WINNER will receive the kaiju rucksack/backpack and a copy of Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero!!
- Must be following me. This is a giveaway for my followers, after all.
- Reblogs and likes both count; reblog to your heart’s content!
- No giveaway blogs.
- Winners must have their ask boxes open so I can contact them if they win.
- Winners must respond to their winning message within 48 hours to claim their prize.
- I will be shipping ANYWHERE. I don’t care if you live in the US or on Mars, I will ship it to you wherever you are.
GIVEAWAY ENDS DECEMBER 15TH. I will pick the winner using a generator on December 20th and the items will be mailed out on January 5th to avoid the holiday price inflation at the post office.
Good luck and happy holidays!
i feel like i should say something about this
this is “HaileTheTurtle” and she used to make these comics on deviantart. yes, the comics are dumb and childish and she uses memes and words like “le” and they are very easy to make fun of, but she was not hurting anybody with it.
a bunch of low lives from 4chan who had found her account posted these comics everywhere, making fun of her. they bullied her on deviantart, posted the pictures to a subreddit called /r/cringepics, and edited her pictures. they hacked into her account, tracked her ip, found her address, and sent her threats. here is something someone wrote on 4chan. eventually, she couldn’t take it anymore and deleted her account, and people reported that she moved. she was bullied so much that she actually had to move out of her house because of some childish comics she had made for her enjoyment.
it’d be cool if we could not make fun of her on tumblr too. i’m sure she’s really tired of it.
reblogged as text because i feel like the last thing we should be doing is spreading the pictures around and all of that
iT’S ALREADY THE SECOND DAY OF THE LAST MONTH OF THE YEAR OF LUIGI
PLEASE DON’T BUY THESE PRODUCTS
lookhuman.com is a website that is currently selling two designs that are closely ripped off of phrases that i coined and popularized on my sideblog, fuckyeahsubversivekawaii, and on this blog. while they haven’t directly stolen my art or the art of my co-mod on FYSK, it’s very clear after browsing the rest of their merchandise that they get all their material by stealing ideas and phrases from popular tumblr posts and art.
i’ve decided not to take any kind of legal action. i know that the phrases are mine (and my co-mod’s, in the case of mermaids against misogyny), and you guys know that the phrases are ours, but there really isn’t much i can do besides post links to prove that my versions of these designs were up far, far sooner than these items were made (which i will do shortly.)
all i can do is ask you guys not to support this store. they are intellectual thieves (and shoddy activists - the vast majority of their merch is printed on american apparel products, which is funny when they’re selling “feminist” slogans).
and here’s the original sketch of my “dead men don’t catcall” design, posted on FYSK in june of 2013: [x]
along with the finished illustration which was posted in october: [x]
if you would like to purchase items with the dead men don’t catcall illustration, you can get them at my cafepress (where all the items are responsibly sourced.) i also have an etsy connected to FYSK, and i hope to offer more pinback buttons (including mermaids against misogyny ones!) by the end of the week.
thank you for your time, and sorry for stretching your dashes!

No but if we go the novelization way, you wanna know why this whole thing is 1000% sadder and more terrifying and why it makes Stacker 1000% more of a badass than you may have previously thought?
This is an awful topic to be inquisitive about, but as an epilepsy patient, I have five million questions about what happens when you have a fucking grand mal INSIDE A GIANT ROBOT ENGAGED IN COMBAT WHILE BRAIN-CONNECTED TO ANOTHER PERSON.
1. This was Tamsin’s first seizure. They wouldn’t have let her pilot again if they knew it was likely this would happen. Trust me, I got told I shouldn’t ride a bicycle. Giant robots were out of the question. So, first seizure, a thing that happens with little to no warning, a thing you did not expect would happen.
2. As awful and potentially dangerous as it is in itself, for the person having a grand mal? Lights out. You literally have no idea what’s happening. BUT NOW IMAGINE STACKER. Imagine him feeling two things at the other end of their connection - that Tamsin lost consciousness and almost immediately that her brain, for want of a better term, short-circuited. While connected to his.
4. I have no idea about the technicalities of how neural handshakes work, but I’m pretty sure Stacker did not go physically unaffected by this. I don’t know if a seizure would, uh, propagate? In which case I’d go as far as to suggest he may have experienced an absence seizure himself (some degree of consciousness impairment + mild tonic/clonic components, lasts about 10-20 seconds, would still be fucking terrifying in context)
5. IMAGINE ALL OF THAT AND THEN THINK ABOUT HIM TRANSFERRING THE WHOLE NEURO-LOAD TO HIMSELF AND FIGHTING FOR THREE HOURS.
6. Being trapped in a harness inside a thing that bumps you around on the regular anyway is not a good place to have a seizure. Like, the fact that she was in armor and wearing a helmet probably protected her from head injuries, but I can’t imagine how being inside a thing that’s mostly rigid can be good. This is some shit you want to deal with lying down.
7. POOR TAMSIN LIKELY WOKE UP AT SOME POINT NOT SO LONG AFTER TERMINATION, WHICH MEANS SHE WOKE UP SEVERAL MINUTES AFTER STACKER TOOK OVER. SHE WOKE UP DISORIENTED AND SCARED AND HURTING AND VERY SLOWLY STARTED REALIZING WHAT WAS HAPPENING RIGHT BESIDE HER, RIGHT OUTSIDE, AND HOW SHE COULD DO NOTHING TO HELP
8. STACKER BURNED FOR THREE HOURS BUT TAMSIN WAS IN THERE WITH HIM
9. STACKER IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS. TAMSIN IS A MOTHERFUCKING BADASS. GOD I CAN’T EVEN DEAL.
oh the bridge was pulled back up
into the sky
how time did fly for you
once i lost my brother
in the blink of an eye
oh the web was spun
it held me on the line
You know, because she felt it two ways.
