Alright, here we go!
In honor of Agent of Asgard coming out today, and our favourite trickster getting his own comic run, I’m holding a giveaway!
There will be two prizes:
First prize is a fully finished resin cast copy of AoA Loki’s horned headdress, as shown. All new sculpts by me, soon to be up in my Etsy shop if you don’t want to take your chances on a lucky reblog.
Second prize is Loki’s MCU Avengers armor, sculpted and resin cast by me! They’re finished with a golden bronze color, aged, weathered, and sealed in polyurethane for durability.
- Must be following me
- Likes will not be counted, reblogs only
- You can reblog as many times as you like
- I’d appreciate it if you go like or at least check out my FB fanpage for my work (and share the giveaway post on Facebook for another chance to win!)
- Winner will be chosen in 2 weeks (Feb. 19th) using a randomizer
- If you live outside of the US & Canada, I will have to pester you for shipping (don’t worry, it won’t be much)
That’s all, happy new comicbook day and good luck!
Actually making the AoA horns myself, but would love that armour ….
If you’re knee-deep in geekdom, then the odds that you haven’t heard about the “J.K. Rowling Regrets Hooking Ron Up With Hermione" bru-ha-ha are so remote that I’m fairly certain that they don’t make numbers that small. Meanwhile the many, many Tumblrs, LiveJournals and DreamJournals are…
This is the text I sent to my friend just a few minutes ago:
My whole thing is, [JK Rowling], why are you apologizing for writing like a young woman with romantic ideals when you were a young woman with romantic ideals? I don’t want your 50 year old version of Harry Potter. I like the original….
Ron is one of my favourite characters and Ron and Hermione were one of my first OTP’s so I’m pretty damn pissed at Jo right now tbh!
I always thought of Ron and Hermione to be like Han and Leia. The guy isn’t the golden boy, he’s not the “main hero” of the story, and maybe he feels like he isn’t…
my heart breaks when I hear that JK regrets Ron and Hermione. Because they weren’t very sensible? The contrast was what made it interesting. I love Ron so much, and it’s because he’s is so flawed, and part of it is that he’s so insecure, and everyone has that in them, of wanting to live up to the…
Soooooooo … like many, I find solace in my fannish interests. Matt Fraction once suggested that, if you’re feeling suicidal, find that story you have to know the end of, and latch onto it. Before ever even reading that, I did that with Harry Potter. I don’t care how frivolous it may sound, I’m convinced it saved my life a few times. Granted, it’s long over now, and I’ve found other things to latch onto, other stories whose endings I must know. But the news today about Rowling having decided that HeRon was a mistake ….
No, no, I’m *not* saying I’m suicidal about that. But I’ve been having a rough time of things depression-wise lately, and being a die-hard HeRon shopper, I gotta say, this news, and the crowing all over my FB feed, all the statements of how WRONG HeRon was, is not making my day any better. XD Don’t misunderstand me, they have a perfect right to state how happy they are, and why they felt Harry/Hermione was the way things should have gone. I’m glad for them, I guess — they certainly suffered for the fact that Harry/Hermione wasn’t canon.
But I have my own reasons for being a die-hard HeRon shipper (although I did technically ship Trio more). Call it stupid if you must, but for me, I feel like I lost something today. I hope I’m wrong, that when I reread the books next time, the fact that the author has decided it was a *mistake* (and so many of my friends agree with her, won’t spoil the reading for me. :/ (Again, happy for the Harry/Hermione shippers in that they no longer have to feel the author was against *them*. I guess it’s one of those situations where *someone* has to be disappointed. And they still have reason to be disappointed in that the story still didn’t end the way they wanted ….)
I guess my point is that I started out the day already as sad Wolfie, and so for me, it’s kind of a “gee, this kick in the gut / reminder that my perception, as I have already been told recently (and with more vigor that was good for my mental health), could maybe have come at a better time” self-pity party. XD Hey, it’s my blog, I’ll whinge if I want! :P

Does anyone have a screenshot of Thomas listening to the opera singer in Downton Abbey S4E3? It’s such a lovely, unguarded moment — I love the look of true and unmalicious delight on his face! <3</blockquote>There were gifs made from promo videos even… But I don’t have them…
Thanks for the heads-up! At least I have this post to remind me to look, when I find the time. Note to self: it’s the Puccini bit I’m looking for, not the first time we see him during the performance ….
