the match seller

Q+A For ConcertTeamup

Hello everyone! I hope some of this clear things up. I understand some are a little confused on how this all works! Remember I am always here if you have any questions or concerns, please send them through messages or on ask! Lots of to you all! x

Q:   “Is this legit?”

A: Yes, I want this all to be as safe as possible for fans. We don’t scam and we don’t lie.

Q: “I’m selling a ticket, how do I do this?”

A: You have already done what you need to do! All I need to know is that you have one (or more) available for purchase! I will then find you someone to match with, as soon as possible. 

Q: “How do I send a request or submission for a ticket/s?”

A: Simple! Send them through ask or messaging! Both are available and open. Submitting makes it a little difficult to answer you directly though.

Q: “What should I send for the request for tickets?”

A: Just tell me what show you are wanting to attend to, and how many tickets you need, also if you need a specific ticket. It is nice to know your age, your name also how much you are offering but that is totally optional for you to tell me.

Q: “How do I get ‘Matched’” 

A: Simple, pretty much once I find a ticket, and if you are chosen. I tell you who you have been matched with. I will also then tell you that you should contact each other for how you want it all to be arranged. I don’t want to intrude on your details so I leave the communication aspect to be completely up to you two.

Q: “I have been matched and am talking to the seller/buyer and we need help”

A: I am always here to help you guys in any way that I can.

Q: “I have been matched but i’m getting a strange vibe”

A: I’m very sorry to hear that. We want this to be as safe and easy as possible. If you for some reason feel that there is something shady coming from your seller/buyer, please let us know immediately. I will ask you to share what you think might be happening. I will then talk to the two of you to sort it out. It will then be asked to the seller for proof by photo and/or video of the ticket/s. If you still feel that there may be more going on, I will gladly find you someone else that you feel safer with. Although, there is a very slight chance that you will be scammed, as I talk to all of you before you are matched and make sure that you have good intentions. 

Q: “I already have tickets, I just don’t want to go alone”

A: That is totally understandable, and congrats on getting tickets! I will try and find someone to match you with as soon as possible so you have someone to attend the show with. 

Q: “How do I pay once I have been matched?”

A: I leave this up to the two of you to decide as people have different requirements. Although I know you can send the payment through Ticketmaster, Paypal, Bank Transfers, etc. But again the decision is totally up to and what works best for you and your seller/buyer. Im always here if you need any assistance. 

Q: “How do I send the tickets to the buyer?”

A: As of right at this moment, nobody has their physical tickets as its only been about 36 hours since tickets sold out. But in the future you are able to connect with each other on Ticketmaster to transfer tickets, without any costs and also safely. You can also mail tickets as an option, but we all know that shipping physical items may get lost in delivery. Again this is totally up to the buyer/seller, which ever method works best for the two of you is important. Im always here for help.

Q: “I have been matched, and have successfully gotten my tickets, but I no longer need them”

A: Thats totally fine! I will find someone for you to match with! You now take on the role as a seller. 

Q: “I have been matched to a seller, but I don’t need the ticket/s anymore”

A: Sorry to hear that! We will then find someone else for the ticket/s”

Q: “Will you let us know if you have any available?”

A: Yes of course! As soon as I have some available, you will all be notified. I recommend turning our posts notifications on. You can do this by going on my home page and selecting the person shaped icon in the right corner, once selected there should be a “Get Notifications” button. Click that. There will then be a lightning bolt next to the icon to confirm. I am always here for help if you are confused. 

A: “Can I be added to the ___ list”

Q: Yes, although there is no waiting list. Once I let you guys know that there is a ticket available, I will also tell you a specific word (Example: “Green”, “Pink”, “Sweet Creature”) Send me the word that I ask for that is linked to that ticket, and you will be added to a list that will help me randomly draw one of you for the ticket. I want it to be as fair as possible. If you guys prefer a waiting list, please let me know. I want all of you to get a chance. 

Q: “How do I get chosen for tickets, is there something I can do”

A: Demand for tickets is very high at the moment. Send me a request, and also keep on the look out for my posts. I don’t choose for who I think deserves it more, I think you all deserve a chance and a ticket. I don’t single people out if they believe in specific ‘ships’ or if they just created a blog that day. We all support the same person/people and I think thats very important, so no at this moment there is no special way to get a ticket. In the future there may be a list, but no I want this to be as fair as possible. If you disagree or have another opinion, please let me know again I want what works best for all of you! 

Q: “I didn’t get any tickets the last time you had some available”

A: Don’t give up, there will be more to come. It’s only been two days and I have already been able to match people. Just keep your eyes peeled on my account. 

Q: “How much time do people have to be entered on to the list for the  ______ show?”

A: After I notify you all that I have a ticket available. Im giving you all 12 hours to send me the specific word. Please keep in mind that may change depending on if the seller will allow this much time. 

Q: “You didn’t reply, was I not on the list?”

A: If you sent me the word in the correct time, you would have been on the list. If I don’t answer its because I have quite a few messages, but don’t worry nobody is going unnoticed. I see all. 

Q: “Do you have the ticket physically”

A: No, I dont. A direct you to someone who does and is safe/reliable. 
Think of me as a manager. 

Q: “If you manage to get tickets, will the name change to yours?”

A: No, I don’t think the name will change. As far as I’m aware the person who first bought the ticket will have their name on it. 

Q: “Where exactly are you getting the tickets from”

A: Either someone has come to me saying they have some for sale, or I look for them myself through other platforms. 

Q: “For example, if I was able to get a ticket to the Sydney show with your help, will there be a problem when I show them the ticket at the venue…? Because I heard several people saying that they may not let you in if it doesn’t have your name on it or something like that?”

A: From what I’ve heard is that its different for every place. Some people will only be allowed access if the person who originally bought the tickets is there with ID for proof. This is where we get the name ‘concertTeamUp’. So if someone is selling a ticket the buyer can tag along with the person who has their name on the ticket. This way you will be “Teaming Up” and going to the show together. Although some places also don’t need for the person who originally bought the ticket with their name on it to be there. I would suggest calling and/or emailing the venue that you are planning to go to. We would hate for someone to get a ticket but not be allowed access. Let us know if you do contact the venues, we can then make a post about the guidelines for each place, if you guys wish. 

Q: “If I am matched but I don’t respond right away, will it be given away to someone else?” 

A: No. I will wait for your response. If you don’t need the ticket anymore I will give it to someone else though. 

Q: I sent a message but Im not sure you got it, you didn’t reply.”

A: Most cases I have seen it, I just haven’t had the chance to reply. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Again, I didn’t realize my blog would be noticed as much as it is. So don’t panic, I do see all.

Q: “I’m still confused”

A: Thats totally okay! Message me and I will try my best to help you understand! 

Q: “Are you selling two tickets at a time to one person?”

A: I understand people need more than one ticket, so I will try my best for you. If I have two available and you are chosen, you may be in luck.

Q: “Will you tell us details about the ticket?”

A: Normally I will tell you the amount of tickets, the place and the price. Its up to the seller on how much information is to be posted. 

Q: “Are trades available?”

A: Yes! Absolutely!

Q: “I don’t have very many places to share your blog.”

A: That is totally fine! You are not obligated to share my blog. This also does not effect your chances of being chosen for a ticket. 

Q: “Where should I share your blog?”

A: It’s completely up to you! Twitter is a good way, but honestly any form of sharing is good and very appreciated! Please don’t feel pressured though.

Q: “Are there groups of people that I can tag along with?”

A: Yes! I can find you a match! Also feel free to try and start one! Let me know if you do! 

Q: “I know people looking for and buying tickets, should I tell them about you!”

A: Its up to you! It will definitely help though!

Q: “What cities have you sold to?”

A: I may be wrong but from what I remember its been, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Singapore, and New York. 

Q: ”Are you only selling tickets to certain cities?”

A: Whatever tickets for whatever shows find there way over here they will be posted. Im selling for all shows. 

Q: “If you have already sold a ticket for a show, will that be the only one?”

A: No, when more come they will be posted no matter how many times its been sold before on here.

Again I am trying my absolute best for all of you! I want this to be a place where we can connect to one another as fans. Thank you for submitting and also for paying attention. It truly does mean a lot, fingers crossed that I get you your ticket/s!

I hope this clears up some things! Again, please know Im always available for anything. These were the most asked questions, so If more come at a high rate I could make a Part 2. Also I apologize for the length of this post, I hope it helps though! x

Much love to you all, x



“Now I’m going to tell you a beautiful story from that time when I was working in the Calderón’s security. Ok, listen. I was working in an Atleti-Athletic in one of the highest stands of the stadium when I see one of the girls selling hot-dogs (back then they also used to sell pizza in the stadium). The girl was quite big so it was a great effort for her to climb up there, that’s why she used to arrive before there was too much people on the stands. Sweating a lot she used to sit on the steps, she ate a hot-dog, drank a coca-cola and smoked a couple of cigars. “There’s no way I can eat anything later” she said. Well, back in the day it was forbidden to have anything for free so it was a big risk but we were too high and bosses never got there. 

So the girl and I saw appearing a man and a little kid wearing two white plastic bags. I’m not the one to judge but at first sight their clothes, that were very clean, had a lot of patches. The man came to me and showing me his tickets asked me “where do me and my son sit down?” I showed them but I told them that the zone wouldn’t fill up so they could sit down closer. The kid started to look at the seller’s hot-dog and the man took out of the bags two old Atleti shirts. Very old. They put them on and he looked at me “they’re a bit old but I’ve not been able to come for 4 or 5 years” I said: “don’t worry, they are historic jerseys” and the kid kept on looking at the seller eating. The man was talking to me a bit nervous, including the kid in the irrelevant conversation to make him forget about the hot-dog. 

The man said: “I’ve been unemployed for three years and we’ve been in a very bad situation, but I got a job 2 months ago and with a bit of money that I’ve saved up and a bit more his grandparents gave us, I’ve brought him here. We didn’t brought food because I thought I could buy sandwhiches here but it’s too expensive and I can’t afford it.” It really moved me deep inside but when I looked at the seller, she was sobbing. Without saying a word she went to the kid and asked him “how do you like it?” And she prepared two hot-dogs and two coca-colas for the two of them. The man didn’t want to take them but she insisted a lot and they ended up taking them. During the match two pizza sellers came to them, as the woman had sent them, to complete their meal, they wanted to help them to have a great afternoon. 

So there’s that, I have a lot of worse memories of the Calderón but this one is a great one.“

Hirose: Are you alright?

Hirose: What’s that sound? I’m coming in!
[opens door]
Hirose: You’re showering?
Seiji: What is it? You wanna join?
Hirose: Wha- no, I - [is pulled into the shower as he yelps]

[Showering together]
Seiji: How come your touch is so light?
Hirose:Uh…um…last night, I lost control, and… I was pretty rough, and even left
a bitmark on your back…
Seiji:Well, I came twice, so…
Hirose: But, still.
Seiji: Don’t worry about it. I don’t care if it’s rough or gentle. I just want you
to touch me.
Hirose: I want to do it gently.
Seiji: Then be gentle.
Hirose: This is [inaudible]
Seiji: Huh? I can’t hear you.


Barrel Weight

An aftermarket part for the HK 45, it’s a clamp on barrel weight that attaches to the frame’s rail. It sort of mimics the USP Match but the seller makes several different versions for different HK pistols. You can see in the 2nd and 3rd photo how a standard length barrel and the extended length threaded barrel look with the  barrel weight installed. The weight helps control recoil and muzzle flip but obviously makes your handgun front heavy. Another version has a secondary rail for mounting lights or lasers but they will sit lower than usual.

I have no idea what I’m drawing. XD;;;

This is for the fairy tales month at FuckYeahKhirk. :D
Day 5: Red riding hood.

Originally, I had intended to do a series linking day 4 (match seller) and today, but then stuff came up and I didn’t get to draw the previous part, but at least here’s riding!hood mini-Khan. X3

The story would have been a series of pics of chibi-Khan selling matches and being sad (the poor thing feels so terribly cold from having been in the cryotube so long, and Marcus is cruel and sends him outside to sell matches to the Klingons regardless, under threat to his crew which Marcus holds hostage), until Khan meets Kirk and is rescued/adopted/his crew is saved.
The red riding hood pic above would be the conclusion.

I’m vaguely tempted to write a cracky fic on the subject anyway. XD
