Hey, for the ever changing motto of the university, I just wanted to submit "Cum Gladio Et Sale" or "With Sword and Salt

Ah man I should make a list! So far we’ve got:

  • Cauti, Cordati, Auspicati - Wary, Wise, Lucky
  • Cum Gladio Et Sale - With Sword and Salt (I love it thank you!)

And from this post (I used google translate for the English, so I can’t be sure it’s correct)

  • ‘“non est prudentia in occulta” or something occulta anyway’ - There Is No Wisdom In The Secret??? I know GTranslate is Not Aces at Latin so I don’t have much faith in this translation
  • רעספּעקט די קראָוז - Respect The Crows
  • yn dilyn y seren - Following The Star
  • Beware the Lights
  • Swallow the Hidden Names
  • Blood and Bones Blood and Bones Blood and Bones

If there’s been others mentioned I can’t recall/find them, but by all means hit me up with more vaguely ominous mottos to add to this list

Hey SS fandom! I’ve been sorting through my stuff and I want to sell some things. I found this doujinshi from Honey Canon that was made in 2005. Before I go on ebay and try to sell it, I was hoping to post it here first so I could sell it to one of y'all. :) It’s pretty short but really sweet… I hate to let it go but I need the $$! I’m thinking it’ll be $18 USD + shipping (I will calculate it before asking for the payment).

For payment it would be paypal or venmo (** this is preferred since paypal can be complicated to me). Just send me a message if you are interested. :)

My amazing, knitting, friend made Storm, in order to draft and test  out the female knitting pattern she made, for sale. But, then, she got distracted by other projects and didn’t feel inspired to make Storm’s clothes, so she sent her to me. However…I don’t knit. I crochet! I guess there is some sort of crochet-knit rivalry, though, I am pretty well oblivious to it, and don’t care one bit. BUT, I do think its cool that she’s a knitted doll, with crochet clothes that I made for her. :)

Hey Aimo! Just want to tell you that because of your PoE posts and art, I finally bought the game (hubby also pushed me since it's already on sale today lol). Man, I'm loving every part of the game! The lore and world exploration is so awesome. Just saw Eder and Aloth in my playthrough so hopefully I won't miss any of the companions :)

Thanks for letting me know this, and I’m so happy that you tried and are loving PoE! I figured anyone with any interest in story & choice-heavy RPGs will enjoy playing it.

And I’m especially glad to know that you picked up Eder; Apparently, according to the Obsidian PoE panel at PAX, many players actually overlook picking him up. And I’m like…;A;

**Commissions for Kloud


This is my buddy. His name is Kloud and he needs some help. On December 23rd 2013, my buddy started showing problems walking, and on December 26th, three days later, he stopped walking all together. He weighs around 160 lbs and right now it takes me and another family member to muscle him around for walks and to get him comfortable. He’s not using his legs and I need to know why.

Waiting over multiple holidays for a vet visit to diagnose the problem was the longest wait of my life in a long time and I’m sure even longer for Kloud. Finally on January 3rd my mother and I took him to get evaluated and have xrays of his shoulders done at our regular vet. At this point all we’ve discovered is that he could have one of several problems and all we have now is speculation. He’s experiencing mild to moderate pain in his shoulders, and living with dogs all my life we already started treating him with the appropriate pain meds– additionally our vet recommended some other medications to put him on that might help ease if not correct his ‘problem’ and recommended a specialist if the problem persists. So the plan was to add the new medications and see how he fairs. But our appointment left us without any solid answers and I decided I absolutely wanted the recommended re-evaluation with a specialist at another facility.


He’s eating and drinking and spirited and healthy in all other ways, except he’s unable to walk and he knows he should be able to which only frustrates and upsets him when he can’t get up. I want to help my boy walk again if I can.

Like many others, I’m very familiar with financial problems and right now I don’t have what it takes to even have the specialist evaluation for my boy, much less pay for any procedures he might need following the exam. Just a trip to the specialist for tests/xrays/possible diagnosis will run at least $1500 and I just don’t have it. So here I want to do anything I can to raise whatever sum, large or small, to help Kloud make this appointment. He needs this appointment as soon as possible and I need an answer for him, even if its an answer I don’t want (i.e worst case if he cannot be helped). Right now he’s just sitting here and the longer he does, the more his muscles will atrophy and lying around indefinitely will not end well.

So to raise money for my buddy, here are some ways to help:

I’m offering art commissions:

There’s also my ebay with trinkets, anime and nerdy stuff for sale to help raise money as well:

http://www.ebay.com/sch/dragonsparkz/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

Even the smallest amount of contributions would help immensely, even if its just $1 and can be made by going to my page and clicking the “Donate” button on the left.

He’s only five years young and otherwise healthy and only half-way through his life. I bottle-fed and raised him and life wouldn’t be the same without him. Even if the prognosis isn’t a favorable one, I still need to try and help my buddy. Please help Kloud if you can. He is my friend and my family and I have to try and help him whatever it takes.

**Please share/reblog– every gesture helps and is always appreciated. Thank you <3

Good News Everyone!

So I was doing the end of the week inventory at the shop today, and I have some good news everyone. Ms Marvel was the highest selling book of the week. That’s right, it out sold Superman, Batman, Forever Evil, it out sold everything. Everything? 

That’s right, even on Friday, two days after it came out, I had to keep restocking our supply of it because that many people were coming in to buy it. I never have to restock on Fridays, at least not this often. Heck, there were people coming back to buy their second copy of it, because they loved it so much they wanted to get one for a friend. Yeah, you heard me. 

Now, this alone would make me insanely happy. But I’ve got even more good news. So many other great books this week sold incredibly well also (quite possibly thanks to Ms Marvel bringing in so many new readers, someone get working on a pic of Kamala saying “You’re welcome” because we could use it for a ton of books right now). Avengers AI which had been dropping steadily in sales suddenly spiked back up this week. Superior Foes sold better than normal, the new Punisher book was flying off the wall (and I’m not even a Punisher fan and I love this new series). And get this, Mighty Avengers completely sold out.

I repeat, the book featuring a diverse cast full of people of color and an equal representation of men and women, which over the past several weeks had been dropping in sales, SOOOOLD OUT. In Three Days! I love this book and love the cast, and this is great news.

And this is the main reason I’m writing this post. You see the way that comic book companies judge how good the sales of a book are, is pretty flawed (it’s the best system we have, don’t get me wrong, but its still flawed) because they can only tell how much a store buys from them. So if a store buys a lot of a book, but nobody wants it, then the company won’t know that, they’ll just come out and brag that “Hey looks like everyone loves this book,” when in fact nobody is buying it. And the same goes for the reverse. Right now there’s someone at Marvel looking at the declining sales on Avengers AI and Mighty Avengers and thinking “Hmm, do people really want these books?” And that’s why I’m writing this, not so they’ll know (because no one from Marvel is going to read this, let’s just be real about that) but so that at least you’ll know, these books took a while to catch on and grab their audiences, but they’ve done it. These books are now selling way better, and stores will indeed order more of future issues, but Marvel won’t get this memo about how well they’re selling until 3 months after it happens because that’s how far in advance we have to order. And because of that I’ve seen a lot of great books that were starting to grab their audiences (Journey into Mystery) get canceled because they took too long to find that audience. So I just want you to know, if these books get canceled, and someone tells you “Yeah, nobody wants to read about these characters,” you can tell them they’re wrong, people do want to read about them, it just took longer to find their audience.

Now, speaking of misrepresentation of sales. Here’s a bit of bad news from this week that you won’t hear about for three months. Wolverine’s last series was selling okay, but not nearly as much as Marvel wanted, so they relaunched it this week as part of All New Marvel Now. And stores across America bought tons of it… but after doing inventory, I hate to say it but (at my store at least) it didn’t sell for squat. I’ve said it before that by Friday a store wants to have sold about ½ of their supply of a book, maybe 1/3 if they have a bunch of variant covers. But with Wolverine, I don’t even think we sold 1/6 of the books we ordered. 

Now I’m not saying this to badmouth Wolverine. I love the character, always have. But, well, if his last book didn’t sell very well, and this one isn’t selling at all, and in three months we’ll see the sales on the book plummet to reflect this, and his last movie didn’t make nearly as much money as they had hoped… well it makes me wonder what the future of the character might be. Maybe its time for the ol’ canucklehead to take a few years off. I don’t know, I might write something about this going into more details about it, but it’s worth thinking about.

But, end of the day, what I learned from this inventory today is that the times are changing. Comic book fans are growing, maturing, and learning to ask for more, and I for one love seeing that. 

Breaking down the TWC Wall. An interview with Nelson, aka @alive-inside-ink.

Sarah: First, thank you for agreeing to do this interview. I know I’m excited about it and others are as well.

Let’s get started. What made you start writing? Was there an event that triggered it, or has it always been something you’ve done?

Nelson: I had a difficult childhood. From an extreme amount of physical and mental abuse, to being deaf as a child. Initially, reading became my escape. I would devour books, reading the same ones over and over again. I think I wore out the bindings of “The Time Machine” and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. Eventually reading words turned into writing my own. I started writing about my “one” and running away with her at ten years old. It took years for me to write about anything else.

S: Writing can definitely be therapy. I know it’s helped me over the years. Wow, writing about one person pretty much your whole life, that’s pretty intense.

What do you write about now? Are there certain things that inspire you to write?

N: Life. I think there is no greater inspiration than that. I write about the things I see, feel, and experience. It is a great way to release. I don’t think people realize how honest I am in my writing. I usually add a line or a few words containing something really personal to, or about me. That is why if you read my work, you have the chance to know me on a level that few do. i think that’s the beauty of writing about life. Most see an arrangement of words, yet there are a small number that dig deep to see who I really am, and how my experiences have shaped me.

S: Life is a good place to draw inspiration from and I admire honesty in writing very much.

How long have you been writing on Tumblr? When you started writing here did you feel any boundaries?

N: I’ve been on Tumblr for about a year and a half. I was in a bad place, going through a divorce, renting out a small room in someone else’s house. I wanted to get my words out there. I wanted someone to hear all of the things that I kept inside for so long. While I was married I stopped writing so once my marriage was over I wanted to come back to it. 10 years of not writing is a long time. I never cared for social media at all, then I was introduced to Tumblr through a girl I dated twice. Anyway, through discovery I noticed there were actually writers on Tumblr, so I created an account, and started sharing my work. I remember first starting out and being blown away that people were liking my writing. I remember the goal was ten notes. Ten and I would be absolutely thrilled. It took a while actually, but it eventually happened, and that was the first time I hit a milestone with my writing. Before then I really never shared my work with anyone because most of my friends wouldn’t understand it and I was left explaining every line. So to go from that to 10 strangers hitting the heart button was more than I could have ever asked for.

As far as boundaries go I honestly didn’t feel any in the beginning. As the days and months passed on Tumblr I could see the beauty that was the TWC. I think there were certainly hills back then, but they were more milestones than boundaries. For instance getting reblogged and having some of these bigger, more established writers taking notice of you. Then of course everyone wanted to be “blue tagged” which looking back on it I believe the idea was there and I could see why it was created in the first place, but the execution was mediocre at best. Things were great back then.  I miss the old Tumblr. It is a shame that these new up and coming writers didn’t get the chance to be a part of, or even see the TWC before it died out.
