- .6 mile from the con (like a 10 minute walk)
- me and my friend are quality people (and cosplayers, although that could go under either column depending on you)
- it’s $365 a night
Personally I really like being able to walk to my hotel and maybe you do too! I have the room from Wednesday night through Monday morn, and it can comfortably room three people and cozily room four. Send me an ask or a Skype (euphausiid) if you’re interested.

Hey guys! MY CHILRENS BOOK IS FINALLY UP! please help me raise money to publish! it is very close to my heart, features lots of hiccuping, and a strong LGBTQ message. There are not many childrens books on the market like that, so please help any way you can!
Hey all! So this is an indiegogo for my friend and roommate Michelle’s indiegogo. She wrote this book when she was struggling with coming out to her family, and carries a strong yet not totally in-your-face message about being who you are and the importance of the love and support of your friends.
I really, really suggest donating to this to support an LGBTQ artist and get more of this type of media into the mainstream. Plus, it’s a totally totally adorable book, and will ship in time for the winter holidays!!!! If you have any young kids in your life, please consider donating just a few dollars to Michelle. She’s such an incredible person, friend, and artist.
Hey guys, I’m reblogging this again and really, really asking you guys for help. Funding has stagnated over the last few days - please, just a few dollars.
This is a really important project for her to get funded not only because she’s been working on it for the last few years, but because her incredibly conservative parents told her that if she came out publicly, it would cause her to fail to get funded.
Now, I know that there are plenty of reasons that things can fail to get funded - but they will see and hold it as because she’s pansexual. Please, please, show her parents that she will get fully funded anyways. Even just a few dollars will make a big difference.
I appreciate y’all spreading this around a bunch over the past 24 hours, but please note that it’s important to actually donate, too…one, two, five dollars, whatever. Please help get this funded!
Yes, let’s imply that Wonder Woman “deals with” all of her villains by killing them. That is 100% good characterization of Wonder Woman and not a distortion of her personality and ethics at all. I am so pleased to see everyone on my dash celebrating this idea.
God, I hate this panel so much. I hate even more that someone’s decided to pair it with a Gail Simone quote that’s been taken completely out of context. There are elements of Simone’s Wonder Woman run I dislike, but if there’s one thing she understood about the character, it’s that Diana — although prepared to fight, and even to kill if there’s absolutely no other way — will always look for a peaceful resolution before anything else.
"We have a saying, my people. ‘Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue, don’t subdue if you can pacify, and don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve first extended it.’" — Wonder Woman #25 (2008)
In Wonder Woman #19, Diana is attacked by an enraged Green Lantern who believes her to be his enemy. She fights back, to defend herself and to give her friend Etta a chance to get away, but once she’s knocked him down, she extends her hand in peace.
He rages at her. He throws punch after punch, and she stands there and lets him. And when he’s exhausted himself—
She extends her hand again. And she talks to him, and she listens, and she appeals to his sense of justice and compassion. And in doing so, she gains an ally.
This isn’t unique to Gail Simone’s run; it was a key characteristic of Diana throughout post-Crisis Wonder Woman. Back in 1989, in Wonder Woman #33, we have Diana’s shame at the realisation that she’d been fighting Cheetah as much out of a desire for revenge as a need to protect others:
Looking on the imprisoned Cheetah, Diana feels pity; she sees a woman maddened by pain and bloodlust, deserving of help as much as punishment. Where Cheetah’s captors would kill her just to shut her up, Diana tries to help.
Hell, we can go back further — to Golden Age Wonder Woman, where the Amazons sought to rehabilitate villains on Reform Island. Golden Age Diana sees the potential for good even in her enemies. Recognising that Priscilla Rich’s evil Cheetah personality is brought out by feelings of inferiority, she offers Cheetah praise and affirmation. “You’re a born dancer — your dancing could attract millions of admirers! Oh, Cheetah, why don’t you dance and make people love you?”
Like later versions of the character, this Diana is able to make friends even out of bitter enemies. Her first recurring villain, Baroness Paula von Gunther, eventually repents and comes to live with the Amazons as their top scientist.
So don’t give me this “When I deal with them, I deal with them” crap. That’s not Diana and it’s never been Diana.
Because while she is capable of showering devastation on her enemies, what makes her a true hero is her restraint and compassion. She doesn’t raise a fist until she’s first extended a hand in friendship.
And that’s how Wonder Woman wins the war. Not by wholesale destruction, but by forging understanding, turning would-be enemies into allies, even friends.
According to the S end credits, Venus didn’t wear the red bow in the Silver Millennium, but she does in the present day.
See, my view is that in the SilMil, Venus and Mars had a mutual attraction thing going on with each other, and they wanted to be together and probably did sleep with each other. But neither would acknowledge that there was actually a relationship there, because to do so would mean acknowledging that they had broken their duty and put another before the princess.
Venus saw Mars die in the final battle and was just devastated, grabbing the red bow from Mars’ back, she tied it into her hair to remember her by and just went out in a blaze of glory.
And modern day Minako wears that same bow to acknowledge her without realizing it.
