I am organising a punk patch swap, this will be my first one on tumblr but I have done this with artist trading cards and patches on facebook a few times and everyone has always had great fun.
This is a great opportunity to get rid of those unwanted patches that everyone has cluttering up the back of their sewing box.
If you are anything like me you have bought large bags of random patches, traded or bought patches then decided they didn’t fit your original intentions, made a bunch of ones to sell or give away and have some left over, or just not got around to sewing them on then gone off them. Well this is your chance to refresh your collection and maybe find something really cool and unusual for your next punk clothing project.
It’s really simple and cheap to take part in. You are guaranteed to get back the same number of patches that you put in and it’s really exciting to see what cool art you get back.
How it works:
You stuff an envelope full of your unwanted patches and a prepaid self addressed envelope.
You mail it to me
I make a note of who sent how many patches, then swap them all over so everyone gets the same amount of new patches that they sent and will try and roughly match size and quality (embroidered for embroidered, back patch for back patch, hand painted for hand painted, screen printed for screen printed, tipex scrawl for tipex scrawl etc)
I send you back the patches in your self addressed prepaid envelope.
One day in the near future, when you have half forgotten about this, maybe a day when you are feeling blue or rough, you get an envelope stuffed with random patches to cheer you up! It’s like Christmas! But less annoying relatives and more Punk.
You get back the same quality/number of patches you sent.
If you want less back than you send (some people have donated extras or misprints from large screen print runs before) put a letter in explaining.
Don’t send candy through the post as a thank you to me, no offense but I won’t eat anything that gets sent by internet strangers, also I’ve had chocolate melt onto patches/artist cards before by well meaning individuals and it causes massive issues.
You only get patches back if you remember to put your self addressed prepaid envelope in. I can’t afford to pay for postage for everyone who forgets. I will attempt to contact blogs if there is a genuine mistake, if I cannot find out who left their envelope out I will just split the patches up and people get bonus ones. It’s only happened once before, but it’s worth stressing.
It is absolutely fine to send multiples of the same patch if you are someone who makes large screen print runs.
The patches don’t have to be political/punk band orientated but it would be better if they are. But ouja board patches, animal skull patches, switchblade patches, pop culture patches have all been included and appreciated before by people.
Unacceptable patches include: Pin buttons/badges (aka, things that aren’t cloth patches), random scouting badges and stuff that isn’t really super punk (message me first if you aren’t sure & alt right/neo nazi patches (these will be disposed of and you won’t get anything back).
I will try to match quality and size of patches you send, but exact matches might not always be possible. I will do my best.
If you think you are gonna send something weird or unusual (like 30 of the same patch, or patches printed on weird fabric or faux fur or something) message me first to discuss it.
I’m based in the UK, so if you are posting from outside Europe just be aware it might be slightly more costly for your, but patches are normally cheap to post even if you send a couple of dozen.
Imagine being the Winchesters' little sister and Dean getting pissed when your boyfriend decides to ignore you.
“Okay, now you’re really starting to worry me,” your brother, Dean, said as he walked past your bedroom door for the hundredth time today.
You cleared your throat in a hope to sound as normal as possible. “What do you mean?”
“I mean,” he began as he walked in to the room with his arms crossed, “that you’ve been sitting on your bed staring at your cellphone all day yesterday and all day today while trying to concentrate on the same book you’ve been reading for weeks now. You’re still on the same pages, Y/n. You’re trying to distract yourself from something, and don’t say you’re not because I do it too.”
Your recently glazed over eyes darted down to the book in your lap. He was right. You hadn’t been reading at all these past days but rather just staring at a sheet of paper with ink as you waited for the piece of technology in your hand to ding. “I’m waiting to see if he’ll text me,” you admitted.
Oh, now you had his attention. “Who?”
“Boyfriend!” The apple green eyes staring back at you grew wide in shock as worry and anger made their appearances. “When the hell did you get a boyfriend?”
Shrugging, you muttered, “tomorrow makes two weeks, but I don’t think we’re gonna last that long.” Hurt began to waver your voice so you stopped for a moment to recollect yourself. “He loved talking to me when we weren’t together, but now that he has me…he just ignores me. He even lied to me so I would think he was busy and wouldn’t text him.” Even though you tried to stop it, a small tear fell down your pale face. Ever since you got with this guy, he had done nothing but cause you stress and sadness. There was no appetite to be found in your body. Long, lonely, tear flooded nights was all you had plenty of. Ironically enough, the loneliness was stronger now than before becoming evolved in a relationship.
Now, you weren’t much for relationships or love, but when you laid eyes on him you fell. Hard. For you, this was a huge step considering it was rare for you to become attached to person your age, but it only showed how much you actually loved him.
Dean nodded slowly as if he was contemplating a thought before he finished with a quick, sharp nod as he agreed with whatever thought was raging through his head. “Okay,” he said to himself rather than to you, “I’ll kill him.”
“What!” you shrieked. “Dean, don’t overreact. He’s just…busy or I’m just annoying or something. Besides, maybe he has something better to do.”
Firm hands clasped onto your shoulders forcing you to look up into flaming green eyes. “Y/n, don’t you ever talk about yourself like that. Ever! You are not annoying. That little punk doesn’t know what he is missing out on…or who he’s messing with.” He mumbled last part under his breath in hopes of you not catching on. “You need to tell him what he’s doing.”
“I don’t know, Dean. I’m okay…” you sighed.
“No, you’re not. That shit isn’t flying around here. Oh, hell, no. As long as Sam and I are alive no boy is going to mistreat you. Ever.”
Hey my guy got any hcs for when the paladins discover that their s/o is ticklish :D????
I am one of the powerful few who can turn my ticklishness off muhaha so I am usually on the other side of this spectrum, doing the tickling
-He is actually ticklish himself so he doesnt usually try to tickle people cause he knows how annoying it can be
-That being said, when he does find out he thinks that their laugh is the cutest thing and his mind … changes slightly
-Cause then he has no qualms about surprise attacking them when they are alone, mostly because he wants to hear their laugh but also because he doesn’t want anyone else to know about them being ticklish. He sees it as his own little secret
-But ohhhh boy when s/o finds out hes ticklish? Its done. Like Shiro never feels safe again. He is exposed and is determined to remain hyper vigilant for the rest of his days around them. He just hates the feeling so much and is the type to start swinging if he thinks an attempt is trying to be made just out of reflex
-He has never been the type to be super interested if people are ticklish or not. He just really couldn’t care less and doesn’t want to get that physically close with most people anyway
-So its not even him who finds out s/o is ticklish, Lance is the one who was playing around and ambushed them and immediately got decked in the face from their knee jerk reaction
-Keith found this extremely hilarious but also kind of dangerous because what if he accidentally tickled them. That was some seriously fast reflexes and it kind of scares him
-So he actually does his best to avoid tickling s/o and has a total new appreciation and understanding when people say that they don’t like to be tickled. Hes not ticklish himself so he doesn’t know what it feels like but if thats the reaction it really cant be any fun
-She is notorious for tickling people. If you are ticklish any where on your body this girl is going to find it and use it at any given opportunity
-This stems from always being tickled as kid, she hated it and in order to extract her revenge she became a ninja at tickling other people. So she would find out very early on if s/o was ticklish and take full advantage, she might let up a little bit because of their relationship but old habits die hard
-This only fuels s/o to want to tickle her back but oh man was that a bad choice. This girl has gone to the extremes to not be ticklish any more, she has developed the skills to turn off the reaction at any given moment
-As soon as she feels an attack coming she goes stone cold and just stares at them until they finally remove their hands and she just quirks an eyebrow and asks if they are done now
-This boy, my son, was that annoying punk in high school who would come up to everyone and ask if they were ticklish and no matter what the response was would tackle them in an attempt to tickle them
-He is ticklish as well but fully accepts this about himself and is ecstatic to discover that s/o is also ticklish. He feels its something that bonds them in this dorkish way
-There is a full out tickle war. Straight up with points and plans of attack and sabotage missions. It spans through out the whole castle and has even found its way onto several planets when out on less dangerous missions
-Lance tends to lose quite a bit, he has racked up a decent amount of points but he gets distracted easily by s/o. All they have to do is kiss him or flash him a cute smile and he is made into an easy target. Not that he really minds, he just likes having fun with them
-He discovers this by a playful tickle fight, some cutsey scene where he pretended to be angry and went to tickle them. He didn’t even know that there were ticklish at that point but omg does he think its adorable
-Seriously he thinks it is just about the cutest thing ever. The way they squeal slightly and smile as they laugh and try to squirm away from him is just everything to him
-He never uses it as maliciously as his friends, he doesn’t want to torture s/o after all, but he uses it whenever he wants to cheer them up. He would be the dork who called himself the tickle monster. Or more accurately the ‘Hunkasaurus Tickleraptor’ cause seriously hes a dweeb
-He also loves to get tickled back. There is nothing he loves more than having s/o get all close to him even if it is an attempt at some pay back. Each time they do he doesn’t try to stop them and instead laughs and pulls them into a tight hug
Calming Patrick to end the night. Goodnight to everyone, and I love and care about you all so very much!! [[[[ I’m gonna start posting every night even if I’m not active the whole day, because I wanna make sure to post reminders! If you’re not going to sleep yet, make sure you:
