maiden shop


We just got done with a MASSIVE shop update over at The Maiden and The Crone! And guess what? Tomorrow, we’re going to do it all again! We’re especially proud of this haul of beautiful crystal babies we’ve found so stop by the shop and tell your friends to do the same! The holidays are just around the corner, after all!

Makoto, #22) How they spend their money.

Mako, #22: How they spend their money.

I totally see Mako as the most frugal out of the group. That includes Mr. Doughnut And Notebook, though Mako would’ve found one of her notebooks for Chibs and made her a private batch of personal doughnuts, thus proving once again that Mako is the actual best of all time.


Right, anyway. I think Mako is a cautious spender. She’s always aware of how much she has, what her budget is, and is very careful to never spend outside her means. She knows the value of a yen and she knows how to make it stretch.

The others are aware of Mako’s money situation too, though mostly through observation and just a general awareness of her life. They try (not always successfully) to be mindful about not doing a bunch of expensive things too close together. Sharing food or drink is a regular thing though, with Usagi helpfully covering any possible embarrassment for Mako by also sharing in everything. Totally for Mako’s sake, of course. Usagi’s mooching is completely selfless. You need to buy me another sundae, Rei. DON’T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT I DO THIS FOR MAKO CHAN AND LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP AND BEING REALLY HUNGRY TODAY

Okay but can we just acknowledge the number of fanfic tropes they have used so far this season?

“My clothes were ruined so I have to wear one of your shirts.”

“I’m afraid to sleep alone so you decide to keep me company.”

“We’re hiding out together because Reasons and we get to talking and realize we have Things In Common.”

“We suddenly have to raise this baby together.”

“There’s only one bathroom and we both really need a shower.”


The leader of the A-Team, Hannibal Smith, had a catch phrase “I love it when a plan comes together”.   

I am appropriating this slogan tonight for myself… “I love it when a homemade Tele comes together!”  I picked up a few more parts for my partscaster Telecaster…it’s starting to look like a guitar!

PS: It’s 10 PM in eastern Canada (8 PM on the Prairies and 7 pm  on the West coast.  In Toronto were are at two hours to midnight - kind of like the old Iron Maiden song, but with hours instead of minutes!  How is 2014 going so far for you guys in Europe and Asia?  And you Aussies and Kiwis too…how has 2014 been treating you so far?  :D
