Makes you want to explore… doesn’t it?
Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
This convention does so many things right. Here’s just another example.
fun cheap date idea: grease up a water melon and throw it in a pond. swim into the pond and fight over the watermelon. winner gets to eat watermelon and put empty watermelon on head as trophy hat
If you have suffered a tragedy and someone says, “you’re in my prayers” with sincerity, and you respond with some egotistical shit about being atheist you are an emotionally inept moron.
For real though, like think about it. If someone is religious, there’s really no kinder sentiment they can express than appealing to the highest power they know for your recovery. Whether or not you think it “works” is irrelevant— the kindness is absolutely real.
STORY IDEA: YOUR DOOR BELL RINGS AND ITS A PERSON FROM AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE “I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE MY FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER AND I KNOW HOW IT ENDS AND I WANNA CHANGE IT”
WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME
Most importantly: you’re stronger than you think.
WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES
LOOK AT THESE ADORABLE PENGUINS IN SWEATERS. Doesn’t that one second from left have some style?

It’s easy to be cynical about the fact that I’ve been here since 6:30am, got a parking ticket I didn’t deserve, stayed here for thirteen hours to watch a play and support my students, resulting in my estimated time of arrival back home being 11:00pm, only to go to bed for 6 hours and wake up to come back…
But I’m trying not to be. Because no one forced me to be here. I chose. And I’m tired because my coffee is wearing off but I’m gonna try to enjoy it.
I miss everyone.

Holy mother fucker that last one would have gotten a fucking punch in the face/testicles.
we are a little homeless, a little lost, and we definitely don’t know what’s going on. but it’s not too bad because it’s we and not i.
This is a really important statement.
“How was your day?”
“Text me when you get home so I know you’re safe”
“How are you?”
“I hope you’re feeling better”
“Have a good day today!”
“I miss you”
“Can you come over?”
“Can I come over?”
“Can I see you?”
“Can I call you?”
“Want something to drink?”
“Watch your step”
“Let’s watch a movie”
“What are you up to?”
“How is your day so far?”
“It will be okay”
“I’m here for you”
“Do you need anything?”
“Are you hungry?”
“I just wanted to hear your voice”
“You just made my day”
You don’t have to hear “I Love You” to know that someone does. Listen carefully. People speak from the heart more often than you think.
THIS IS HOW I KNOW I AM MARRYING THE RIGHT MAN OMFG HE CAME HOME AND JUST GAVE THIS TO ME AND I AM CRYING BC HE KNOWS ME SO WELL OMG SOMEBODY HELP
your man just got away with getting you a 4 dollar gift. I want you to love yourself gurl
$4 or $4,000—it’s a thoughtful, personal, unconventional gift that says nothing but good things about their relationship and how well they know each other.
I hope this makes some of you in a better mood. Because I’m feeling quite over the day. But this helps a bit.
This post makes me want a duck.
