We’re super excited to be able to give away April’s Loot Crate!

This box is filled with Dragon themed goodies - if you want to find out what is inside then take a look at our review, but if you’d like it to remain a mystery until you get your box then just go straight ahead and enter! The box we’re giving away is brand new and sealed - not the exact one we reviewed - so the items may vary slightly (you might get a different version/colour of a certain item).


  • Follow our blog, Geeky Merch.
  • Each reblog of this post counts as an entry. Reblog as many times as you like, but try not to spam your followers too much.
  • No giveaway-only blogs. People who use these tend to spam-reblog, and that’s unfair to everyone else. We will be checking!
  • We will ship anywhere.
  • One winner will be randomly chosen and notified on 23rd May 2014!

Good luck with the giveaway, and remember to check out Loot CrateMay’s theme hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s rumoured to be a multi-fandom crate containing items from 3 of the most requested fandoms!

I suppose I knew that there were two different kinds of people and they behaved in distinct ways. I also knew that my Nanay, the Tagalog word for mother that I used for my grandmother who raised me, wore dresses and she did not buy me dresses. She wore her hair long and I did not wear my hair long.

But she took me to the market and taught me how to haggle. She let me play Chinese garter and jacks with the children in dresses. And sometimes, she cut her hair short. And plenty of times she wore pants. I helped her cook by grating coconut. I didn’t like sitting with my grandfather and drinking, though I did sit on his lap sometimes when he played cards, and I sat on my grandmother’s lap when she played mahjong.

Whenever anyone talked about me, they said kanya, siya, niya, pronouns that did not identify me as belonging to either the longhairs or the shorthairs, the skirtwearers or the pantswearers. I was not a son but a child, not a nephew but a nephew-equivalent whose gender was unspecified.

Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that - but you are the only you.

Tarantino - you can criticize everything that Quentin does - but nobody writes Tarantino stuff like Tarantino. He is the best Tarantino writer there is, and that was actually the thing that people responded to - they’re going ‘this is an individual writing with his own point of view’.

There are better writers than me out there, there are smarter writers, there are people who can plot better - there are all those kinds of things, but there’s nobody who can write a Neil Gaiman story like I can.


- A bit of writing advice from Neil Gaiman. (via faramirs)

I said it on the Nerdist Podcast, and I believe it. It’s as true for any area of the arts, not just writing. Perhaps it’s true for life.

(via neil-gaiman)

Advice I try to consider every day. Neil Gaiman is a precious human being and if you write or art or do anything you really should listen to this.

whenever people say they dont like cats because they dont happily greet you at the door i give them the stinkiest eye

Nimbus literally waits at the front door for me. He doesn’t do it for anyone else in the family but me and it’s the cutest thing even though I nearly trip over him every time because I have too much shit and he just wants to crawl into my arms and give me kitty kisses.

oh my gosh

I used to have kitties that did this. Kitties that would be there waiting to walk me up from the bus stop when I got home. Kitties that would wrap their arms around your neck when you lifted them up, purring. One cat who would hide behind the bathroom door at the first sign of thunder, shivering, but when you picked him up and cuddled with him in bed, he would relax and start purring and get all kissy.
Cats are just like people or dogs, man. Some are assholes. Some are total sweethearts who just want to be loved.
