why is this sold out

jabberwockypie  asked:

Sci, I know DC is not your jam, but have you seen Wonder Woman? It is very enjoyable. Furthermore a lot of men are pissed off about it and, honestly, I feel like these people should be pissed off as often as possible.

I did!  I enjoyed it very much!  

My local radio station was reading tweets from/about little girls about Wonder Woman, and it was great.  My favorite was the father who tweeted that he dropped some trash on the way to the curb, and his daughter accused him of littering and proclaimed, “This is why there are no men on Themyscira.”

That’s going to be my go to reply to every minor inconvenience.  Super market sold out of ice cream?   “This is why there are no men on Themyscira.”  Can’t find a parking spot?   “This is why there are no men on Themyscira.”  Burnt the toast?   “This is why there are no men on Themyscira.”

It’s gonna be awesome.

An open letter to recast owners

I’ve been debating with myself wether or not to post this because I’ve been away from the hobby and this ‘discourse’ for some time doing my own thing and generally trying to get my shit together but then someone had the bright idea of posting that delightful list and attempting to brand myself and some 700 people as bullies and stalkers. Not cool bro, not cool at all.

So this is my open letter to the recast owning community, particularly those like the admins of the above blog. I always welcome discourse, if you want to discuss any of this or any of my points then I more than welcome you to my inbox, it’s always open.


Greetings fellow doll lover,
The thing I really, really want to emphasise above all else is that we get it. We really do.
Who wouldn’t want something they’ve been wanting forever and a day for cheaper than usual? It’s only natural and we’re a generation (or two) of people who’ve been brought up to search for a bargain every chance we can. So we understand the temptation. But the issue of recasts vs supporting artists goes much deeper than just the price tag and that seems to be where the disconnect is, at least from what I’ve observed the last few years.

Allow me to make an analogy;
Imagine, if you will, that you’ve got yourself a job cleaning floors, be it for a bit of money on the side or your sole source of income.
You’ve got yourself all set up, you’ve bought the brooms, the dustpan, the garbage can and bags. Not to mention you bought all those cleaning chemicals which weren’t cheap at all. So you’ve come up with how much you charge your clients based on the cost of your equipment and you manage to squeeze in a little on top to cover your labour and time. You come up with what you consider a very fair price considering the time, effort and cost involved in your work. Sounds fair right?
Now imagine you’re cleaning a floor, you’ve done a good job, you could eat off that floor. Some guy comes along, tells you what a good job you’ve done and even picks up a piece of rubbish for you but the second your boss appears to pay you what you’re owed this other guy, we’ll call him Mr R quickly shows him the garbage can, telling your boss at length what a wonderful job has been done and he’ll only charge half of what you where asking for.
Oh! Well your boss loves that idea, a perfect floor for half the price! Who wouldn’t jump on that deal! So MR R leaves with the money, having done a tiny amount of work compared to you. You’re left out of pocket and with nothing to show for all that time and effort your poured into your work.
How would that make you feel? Maybe you could let it slide if it happened just once but imagine that Mr R keeps coming back, he’s got the money now to follow you to your next job and the one after that and so on after all.

I’m hoping it’s obvious where I’m going with this… on a simplified level that’s exactly what recasters do. They make money off the hard work, skill and all that time an artist pours into making dolls and deny those same artists potential sales by poaching customers with an artists own work. I don’t know about you but I’d find that so incredibly beyond galling if it were me in the artists shoes. And if your work is constantly being sold out from under you, why bother to continue?

That is the crux of why recasts are so harmful to the BJD world. Creating a BJD from scratch takes skill (something which might have entailed formal education and the debts that go with it), a hell of a lot of time and development and a lot of money sunk into it along the way for equipment and materials. Why should anyone sink all that into making dolls when someone else is going to come along, make the minimum amount of effort and make money off that artists hard work?
And if artists decide they’ve had enough and it’s just not worth their time to make dolls anymore then we ALL loose out. Even recast owners. Because what’s there going to be to recast if dolls aren’t being made in the first place?

There’s been many good posts made about the costs of producing dolls and I encourage and implore you to go look for them. Do some research on what’s involved in producing the dolls we all enjoy and you’ll come away informed and hopefully with a good sense of what it’s like for the artists who’s work we all covet.


So much of the narrative being used by blogs like bjdrecastpositive and the people behind them relies upon is attempting to paint anyone who disagrees with them as bullies and stalkers.  I can’t speak for all 700 people singled out on that list they complied but I know that I’ve never stalked anyone in my life (who even has the time or energy for that?) and I certainly don’t bully anyone. Being vocal and disagreeing with something someone posts publically is not bullying.
And once again I implore you to use your own common sense and take that list and posts like it for what it is; an attempt to shift focus away from the real issues at hand.
There’s some very impressive mental gymnastics going on (which we’ve seen before) comparing recast owners and their side of the ‘debate’ to the struggles of the black community or the LGBTQA community among others, not to mention all that intersectionality but and I really must emphasise this as hard as it may be to hear it; recasts owners are not the victims, they are not being persecuted or discriminated against. That isn’t what being disagreed with in a debate is. That isn’t what having your decision to buy a fake doll called into question is.
And a decision is exactly what recast ownership is, with the exception of course of the poor people who get scammed, it is a conscious decision to put luxury wants above all else, regardless of whom it hurts. How ever someone wants to justify it to themselves on no level does deciding to buy a fake doll and having that called into question compare to being persecuted for your skin colour or sexuality. And I honestly cannot believe that’s even something I have to explain. The mind boggles.

Like I said at the beginning. I get it, I really do. None of us are pretending to be perfect or to have never made questionable decisions but the point is that we are all capable of looking back on our decisions, realising it was a mistake and doing the right thing. Be that by changing our ways or by making amends. Even some of the big name doll companies have made such journeys, Dollzone started out as a recast company, they decided to change their ways and they’ve since flourished into what they are today, likewise Fairyland fucked up pretty big by copying the designs for their steampunk weapons a year or two back but they realised they’d messed up and made it right. We are all constantly growing and learning. It’s part of life and learning from our mistakes is a fundamental thing we all share.

All I’m asking with this letter is to encourage recast owners and supporters to simply put themselves in someone else’s shoes, to think about the implications of buying fake dolls and to have a good hard look at their decision to do so. There are so many alternatives, be it layaways or this awesome list of dolls under $300 that @bluekitsune put together. The alternatives are there, you just need to look for them.

Just got out of Wonder Woman. It was fantastic, of course, but our show sold out as we were waiting in line, so we had to get a later one and waited around about an hour. 

During that time, I saw a little girl who couldn’t have been older than three bolt over to the life-size cutout of Diana the theater had, never speaking a word but just staring up at it until her father shepherded her away. 

There was another little girl too, a bit older, and absolutely beaming in her Wonder Woman uniform- tiara, cape and all- with her mom next to her in a matching WW shirt.

So yeah. I definitely understood why my first show sold out and didn’t mind one goddamn bit.

“An Ordinary Lunch Break” by Jimmu Hiroyoshi

This is part of the Heart Record Anthology

I MAY put up 2 or 3 more if I feel like it (I’m not going to do the whole book). Also, I didn’t translate this. I actually paid a little extra to have it translated when I bought it off of someone. I did, however, scanned, cleaned, and inserted the text (which I did slightly edited for space LOL). 

Please do not repost or edit in any way.

Pretty Girls, Protective Boys, and Alcohol || (Jungkook x Reader)

Pretty girls, protective boys, and alcohol don’t mix well together. A situation in which Sehun gets a little to close to (Y/N), and Jungkook isn’t going to let it slide. 

(Disclaimer: I love Sehun and EXO! He just made a good character for the story.)

A huge awards show was coming up, where BTS was nominated for Artist of the Year and Album of the Year among other things. The group behind the awards show had decided to hold a party for all of the nominated artists, where they would be able to come together and celebrate. All of the boys were extremely excited for the nomination party, and Jungkook had been begging me to come with him. I had never really been around all of his idol friends in public, so I was hesitant about the invitation… but I wanted to support my boyfriend, so I joined him despite my worries.

The night started off wonderfully. I was wearing my favorite little black dress, upon Jungkook’s request (it was his favorite, too). The party venue was in a ballroom of a beautiful hotel in Seoul. Lights were strung from end to end, reflecting off of the marble walls. Exquisite food was displayed along the tables, accompanied by a bar with every form of alcohol imaginable; a benefit that everyone in attendance was taking advantage of.

I surveyed the room to find many familiar faces, and if I hadn’t seen these people before, I would’ve been totally star-struck. Of course, there was always GOT7; them and Bangtan were glued to each other at all times. In the center of the room were the boys of BigBang, who were joined by SNSD. They were all dancing wildly, as they probably didn’t feel super inclined to protect their image after their long careers. Off to the side were younger groups such as Blackpink, Twice, and Seventeen. They appeared to be keeping to themselves.

I rolled my eyes in annoyance when I spotted a certain group in one corner of the room. There gathered the entirety of EXO, surrounded by a bunch of girls that they probably didn’t know.

Bangtan and EXO were not friends.

Her Instinct - Chapter 13

Chapter 13 - A Broken Frame

*mature gifs ahead*

This chapter was inspired by the song Guys My Age by Hey Violet. Feel free to listen as you read, it’s a great song and really fitting to the character ;-)

Morning came even quicker than last time. I feel the warmth of his body against my back. It was so comforting, his lean arm draped over my body, connecting us.

I studied his forearm. His skin looked and felt so smooth, not oily or dry, but just healthy and clear. I outlined his arm, taking in the shape with my hands.

Remembering it.

Memorizing it.

I glided my fingers down to his hand, tracing his palm. His hands weren’t as soft and smooth as his harm. Callouses outlined his palms, either from working out or all that housework he must do. The memory of his cart full of household cleaning items came across my mind. Funny thing, Mr. Leto never talks about a gardening. It must be for the houses he sells.

My mind wandered back to his warm body pressed against my back. I lapsed back into the memories from last night of us wrapped in each other’s arms, inseparable.

I felt myself melt into his arms. A soft kiss on my neck broke my train of thought.

“Someone’s awake,” he said groggily. The huskiness in his voice sent chills down my spine and was literally, the sexiest thing to wake up too.

“Someone’s still sleepy, ” I retorted playfully as I turned to face him .

“For you, I’d be awake in a heart beat.” He said suggestively.

His voice paled in comparison with his looks. Yep, he was just as flawless as he was before. My eyes outlined his perfectly handsome features. I started with is eyes, then his cheek bones, his jaw , down to his neck and stopped at his clavicle. I decided to give my eyes a break and grazed my fingers against his shoulders and chest.

He stared back at me calmly as I touched him. I felt peaceful in the oddest way.

“I don’t want to leave. I could stay in bed with you all day.” I said out loud to myself.

“Don’t say that Kerri, or I’ll just might have to make that happen.” He tapped my nose with finger with his finger.

I laughed as I inched closer to him. He leaned in, kissing me tenderly. He proceeded to kiss down across my jaw tracing down to my shoulders.

Jason was not in a good mood. The week had started out with finding out Bruce had another brat that no one knew about, then the kid ran away and he got yelled at by Alfred. Getting yelled at by Alfred is the worst. Now, he had to deal with first degree burns from some kid.

“Geez little wing, what happened to you?” Dick asked as Jason rode his bike into the cave. His clothes and hair were still smoking from the brat that attacked him. His favorite leather jacket was ruined!

“Some kid burnt me. Must’ve had a lighter or a really small supped up blowtorch.” He muttered as he started getting out of his uniform, ignoring the fact that Dick had gone pale.

If you have any other questions you can leave as a reply here, or send me or @kichisu​ an ask!

anonymous asked:

Customer: "do you have any more Valentine's Day balloons?" Me: "Nope sold out." Customer: "then why did I get an email saying you had them til the 15th? Let me talk to a manager." You caught me, lady, I sent all of those emails out to troll the unsuspecting. Like idk why you got that email!

The best thing about Hannibal as a TV show: It was supposedly surreal and absurd. Not realistic, on the surface.  (Hannibal was basically a murder wizard.) But, occasionally, those little glimpses of realism set in.

Freddie Lounds, Frederick and Bedelia did “tell-all” books and wanted to cash in. Even Abigail wanted to write one. True crime and all.

The look of distaste on Will’s face when he sees Bedelia reading out her (patently phony) memoirs to that audience is rather important. She’s sold out. 

And it’s why Will is fine with dooming her in the end. 

When a crazy fantasy horror points out how real-life and moral consequences works. 

anonymous asked:

So you finally sold out?

I will never understand why people like to use the term “sold out” when it comes to doing what you love. This isn’t me “selling out” it’s me accepting the fact that I want to do more than just curate other people’s content. 

I posted original stuff before and I have seen them take off. But the problem is consistency and being marketable. The consistency problem can be solved, but the marketability requires people to actually WANT to share.

It all goes back to the name being “problematic”. No one wants to interview a viral content manager when there are blogs calling me “The Stormfront for Colored people” or “a blog lead by a Black Woman that hates White people” (there’s so much wrong with that statement that I’m just going to not even bother with correcting it.). Now, if you’re someone who’s been with this blog from the beginning, you know the blog’s former name is a thought-provoking statement, not a racist one. But nowadays, everyone is like “can you say this another way?” I had actual interviews where I gotta keep fixing what I have to say so it doesn’t become a firestorm (and yet somehow, it always managed to be one.)

It comes down to… what do I want to be known as? W3NK started with the intentions of being an experiment, but now there’s so much confusion, that it gets KINDA annoying that I have to fight these fires all the flipping time. And I have to fight more and more fires instead of focusing on what I want to do.

It is NOT an easy decision for me to make. But if this means I get to produced more meaningful content, then I rather do that.

If that means you see me as a sell-out, then I’m sorry to disappoint. But if I can get more people to get behind me, it would be more helpful than them hosing me down. Cause I’m honestly tired of fighting for air.

Just Blew My Mind With These Questions 😱

THE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS OF THE COLUMBINE HIGH SCHOOL MASSACRE (4-20-99, Denver, Colorado, 15 dead, 24 wounded)

–Why did numerous ear-witnesses say at least one attacker was firing a fully-automatic weapon?

–Why did police concentrate on setting up a perimeter at the same time dispatch(via phone) is hearing the sound of gunshots within the school?

–Why did it take police so long to enter the school, and why did it take almost three hours for them to reach the library, the area where the shooters were last seen? Who gave the orders not to go in?

–Why did over 100 eye- and ear- witnesses dispute the official theory of only two shooters? Why did over 40 of those witnesses identify other participants BY NAME?

–If the two shooters committed suicide shortly after noon, as police claim, how come at least 35 witnesses saw or heard suspects/gunshots/explosions after that time?

–Why are there conflicting eyewitness accounts on the place and manner in which at least four of the dead victims were killed? Were victims being moved around? Was the crime scene being rearranged?

–If left-handed Klebold shot himself in the left temple, why was his suicide weapon found clutched in his right hand?

–How did students manage to keep seriously wounded teacher Dave Sanders alive for more than three hours while awaiting rescue, yet he was dead within 20 minutes of the police taking control of him? His corpse was later found with his shirt off. Is that first-aid? Or a sure-fire way of sending someone into shock?

–What was the motive? Why would two teens who were not bullied, did not hate everyone, and were not psychopathic suddenly decide to destroy the lives of a dozen fellow students and themselves just six weeks before graduation?

–Why would Harris and Klebold plan for a suicide mission and at the same time make normal plans for a post 4-20 future? Like seeking help on an English class essay from a teacher a few days before the attack, like making a date to see a movie the day after, like putting in a work schedule for the next week, like going to an out-of-town college with your dad to pick out a dorm room, like making plans to visit your old friends in New York.

–Where is the gun shot residue(GSR) test evidence for Harris and Klebold and the other suspects?

–Why was fingerprint evidence for Harris and Klebold not found on all but two of the hundreds of obects gathered at the scene? Whose fingerprints, if any, were found on the weapons seized?

–Why does the official story claim, without a shred of evidence, that it was Harris and Klebold that set the South Wadsworth diversionary bomb (an incendiary device that exploded a couple of miles away from the school at the same time the shooting started)?

–Why did authorities claim the two shotguns seized had no serial numbers when later documents clearly show they did have serial numbers? Why did they not try to find out who sold Harris and Klebold the Hi-Point 9mm rifle and the pump-action shotgun that were used in the shooting?

–Were the school administrators warned, as rumored? Who was Principle Frank DeAngelis looking for, as reported by one student who saw him running up and down the interior cafeteria stairs right before the shooting broke out?

–Why did a science teacher tell his students that they had been expecting a fire drill? Was a bomb found in a trash can on 4-19, as one source indicated? Were bomb threats phoned into the school on the morning of 4-20, as two others claimed?

–Why didn’t the Final Report conclude that shooters entered Science rooms 1 and 8, when numerous shell casings were taken from these areas?

–Why didn’t the Final Report mention the brief exit of a shooter on the east side, according to many eyewitnesses?

–If the person seen on the roof of the school was a repairman, as police claim, why do witnesses say he was holding a weapon? Were shell casings found there, as some said?

–Who scheduled ‘crisis training’ drills at Columbine High Schol(CHS) in the weeks before and what was the exact nature of this training?

–What was a Denver police officer and a JeffCo sheriff doing at CHS that morning before the shooting started?

–What does reputed video evidence from the library and admin office areas show? Why does local media refuse to release on-scene video footage from the first half-hour of the incident?

–What happened to all the evidence taken from the computers of the trenchcoat mafia gang?

–Where are dozens of missing interviews of students, especially those in the science hall? Why are there still thousands of pages of investgatory materials that have never been made public, including hundreds of reports of non-Columbine witnesses and tipsters?

–Why has the school district’s own report on the shooting, which included the extensive disciplinary records of the trenchcoat mafia associates, not been made public?

–Did investigators even try to interview Harris’ psychologist, the man perhaps best positioned to know his mental state at the time?

–Why did investigators show a remarkable lack of curiousity about connections with numerous similar school violence-related incidents occuring around the same time in the metro-Denver area and around the country?

–Why did LAPD and Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office personnel travel to the scene afterwards? What was the subject of a 10-minute phone call made by the NYPD to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office on 4-20?

–Who invited the FBI and the ATF to the scene?

–Why was the US Attorney’s Office (federal) consulted on 'prosecutive decisions’ for this local crime?

–Why was all but one of the seven 'investigatory’ teams headed or co-headed by an FBI man? (the one exception was a team headed by a CBI(Colorado Bureau of Investigation) man, who was himself 'ex’-FBI) Was the entire crime scene 'federalized’ soon after the shooting started, under powers granted by the 'Anti-terrorism Act’ (“for the protection of the people and the state”) signed by President Clinton exactly three years before- on April 20, 1996?

–Why did FBI special agent Dwayne Fusilier not recuse himself from the investigation, as his son helped make a Columbine school video two years before that eerily mimicked the shooting?

–What were two high-ranking military figures (a colonel and a general) in cami uniforms doing at the scene? Why was a memorial service at a public park afterwards ringed by military trucks? Who authorized a flyover by military jets and why?

–Why did the Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA) hold a four-day disaster training course 18 months before, “designed specially to adress the needs of Jefferson County,” for future Sheriff John Stone and other county representatives?

–Is it just coincidence that the episode of CBS’ television show “The Promised Land” that was scheduled to air that week featured a kid firing a gun in front of a Denver high school? Or that the plot of the WB’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” for that week was a student gunman and a plot to kill every one at school? Or that MTV aired a Justice Department-produced program called “Warning Signs” about violence and its effect on young people on 4-22-99 (date was scheduled before Columbine)? Or that, before 4-20-99, the History Channel had scheduled to show a program called “Slaughter at Schools” (hosted by Mike Wallace) for May 10?

–When ABC’s “20/20” news program decided to do a show about a disturbing new educational phenomenom called 'Death Education,’ back in the early '90s, why did they choose Columbine High as the featured school?

The Mind Challenge

I got challenged yesterday. No, not to a fight outside the bar or to defend the honor of my dojo, but I received a challenge for my mind. A big one.

After yesterday’s morning practice I went to get a (healthy) drink with some of my fellow karate practitioners. Mind you, they’re all further in their karate journey than I am. 

And one of them asked me: so why do you like karate?

“Hmm no.. those are more like games and I like the self-defense aspect of karate, fighting!”
Dude:
“So, take up kick-boxing or mma or something. That’s even more of a fighting experience than karate.”
Me:
“But I love the Budo feeling. The respect and courtesy that goes with Karate (or any other MA).”
Buddy:
“So? Join a tea ceremony or something. Why do you really like karate? Would you take up any other martial arts, like judo?”
Me:
“Yeah, I think I would. I would love to take up something else like jiu jitsu, judo or kobudo.”
Friend:
“But why?

I was stumped.
The conversation shifted to my plans for achieving the next DAN degree and I guess I never really answered the question.

Well

..

I couldn’t answer his question.

Which baffled me. To non-karate practitioners it’s easy, you never really have to answer that core-question. You are not required to give one true answer. But I got cornered and I had no idea what my mind was thinking.

So why do (really) I like karate?

I started as a small girl, ten years of age in a local dojo in my hometown. I went along with my best friend. I watched his training a few times and, overcoming my heavy shyness, tried out. I was sold.

But WHY was I sold?

There is nothing remarkable to my story of starting karate.

I think that when I started doing karate, it was the first time in my (young) life that I felt I was growing as a person. I played football before, even tried out some instruments, but I never got that excitement as I got trying out karate for the first time. It made me feel powerful. Like I ascended over my own being.

You know, like a transformation.

When I was 10 years old, the Pokémon hype was at its biggest and anime(DBZ, Sailor Moon, Gundam Wing) and Superhero comics (/cartoons) were E-VE-RY-WHERE. 

I am a dreamer, and I loved letting myself sink into that world (you know, like a proper tiny geek). I wanted to be a part of it, even though I knew I could never be. Learning how to fight, learning about respect and honor, was a way for me to get closer to the ideals that were so deeply rooted in the series I were a fan of.

It made me feel bigger than myself. I used to always be frail and sick, a weird tomboy who only played with boys, I used to be awkward, overweight and slow. I was, and I still feel a little different than the big masses. And that’s fine, but it took me a while before I was fine with that.

Karate helped me cope with being different. Karate made me feel equal. No matter who or what you were outside of the dojo, inside, you were just a human being trying to improve the same set of skills as everyone else. It helps me stay out of my own head and feel alive.


But I’m not quite there yet.

Why do I like Karate? For real.

Honestly, all the things above are completely true.

But there’s nothing like the adrenaline rush you get when you get it right and land a painful blow to your opponent. Or the knowledge of how a kata functions in kaisetsu or bunkai form, knowing you can completely shatter someone if needed.

Conclusion:
Maybe I’m just a masochist. Maybe I’m a scarred woman who uses karate to cope with her painful past. Maybe I’m just stubborn and want to fight against the stereotype that women can’t fight, or are weak, and this is my way of doing it.

Maybe I like it, because I became good at it. 

Maybe the reason for liking your martial art changes constantly, just like you as a human being do.


So, why do you love your martial arts? And don’t beat around the bush like I did yesterday. Dig DEEP and answer the question yourself.

I am so goddamn curious about what Haggar’s deal is. Like. I need to know. I need to know why she sold herself out to the galra empire, why she is with them. Does she truly honestly believe in Zarkon as a superior leader? Does she secretly hate him and is just using him as means to build an empire as snuff it out of him one day? Does she have a goal? What is it? What is her freaking deal? What is in it for her?

I need to know about her and it’s killing me that we don’t know. Its also killing me that there are barely any fandom meta/theories posts about Haggar’s past/future and role in the series.

McHanzo Week - Day 3 “Undercover / Downtime"

When a group in South Korea sells weapons for a third their market value to a rag-tag gang in the southern United States, it raises a red flag for the Shimada crime family. In order to investigate, they send the heir, Hanzo Shimada, to infiltrate and find out why the weapons were sold for so cheap. Getting in was the easy part, but Hanzo finds himself losing grip on the mission when he begins to break the first rule of espionage; Don’t get attatched.

A.K.A the roleplay myself and @salemnevada are in the middle of, featuring a scene where Hanzo sees a meteor shower for the first time and it is magical.

Kpop Airport Arrival/Concert Questions

So I’m fortunate enough to have gotten tickets for WINGS in Newark, and this will be my first kpop concert :) I was just wondering about a few things, and any answers would be greatly appreciated!

- How does seeing the boys at the airport work? (where we see them, how it’s organized, etc.)

- What are the rules for seeing them arrive/leave the airport?

- How do people know when they will be leaving/arriving?

- Is there a reason why people camp out/line up so early outside the venue?

- If you already have a ticket why camp out/wait in line?

- Is merch being sold?

- Will there be ARMY Bombs at the merch counter?

- Are there opening performances?

- I think I already know the answer to this, but will there be any fan meets? Photo ops? High-touch?

Thank you to anyone who answers these, it’s truly helpful!!
