Sometimes you miss the memories, not the person.
mostly known as the “thank you for following me, putting up with my fangirling and being the best bunch of followers EVER” giveaway!
so to celebrate all 1,686 of you and to celebrate the smoochy time of year, i figured i’d combine the two and do a little giveaway because i appreciate every single one of you.
because i straddle two fandoms i thought i’d make it fair and offer up something for everyone. so for the DA fandom? the chance to own one of the DA2 companion necklaces i make (if the winner is more of a DA:O person then I’d be willing to swap in either one of my new Grey Warden necklaces or, if it’s the origin of your choosing, a Cousland Crest necklace) and for the ME fandom? the chance to own one of the Paragon/Renegade/Paragade necklaces (that are brand new in my shop)
1 winner will be announced on the 14th of February. if the post reaches over 400 notes? 2 winners will be announced.
i. this is a follower giveaway, so you have to be following me. don’t be a jackass and just follow for the sake of free stuff though, but new followers are always welcome!
ii. likes don’t count, only reblogs. reblog as much as you want but do not piss off your followers! (i don’t want any angry mobs on my doorstep)
iii. must be willing to give me your postal address (duh!)
iiii. open worldwide! you’re all worth the extra postage.
also to mark this giveaway, my store (www.landofrapture.co.uk) is offering 15% off until the giveaway has ended! just enter LOR15 to the coupon code box upon checkout for the discount to be applied! if you purchase something from my store and then win also (gosh, aren’t you lucky) then you’ll have free postage added to your order!
I’d kill a man for either the Swashbuckler one or the Lyrium Ghost one.
Most people on food stamps work full time. They work full time but they don’t have enough money to pay for food for their kids. So really, in some ways, food stamps are about a business subsidy because it allows low wage business workers to… feed their families and continue working. But we call it charity, or the Republicans call it charity. They want to cut food stamps so badly that every church, synagogue, mosque, house of worship in the United States—every single one—[would] have to raise an additional $50,000 every year for ten years to replace what he wants to cut. It’s not gonna happen. It’s not gonna work.

I like how she articulates the simple financial impossibility of religious organizations being able to replace government aid. I’d like to add that, of course, there are so many people who have trouble receiving aid from religious institutions because they’re LGBT and/or non-religious or have a fraught relationship to religion… aid is a human right—and, as she points out, a business subsidy as well as a subsidy to food companies—which people should be able to receive in a secular setting.

This is so amazing. I have an idea for this summer.
I can’t even draw a circle that good on paper
