First point of business: There will only be ONE winner. That winner gets to pick between these three prizes. Unfortunately, I’m trying to buy a car and so can’t spend so much on this,but I really wanted to do this.
Since I’m multifandom, I know all my followers have different likes. We’ve got a Gallifreyan necklace with your name inscribed on it, a badge necklace for the Sherlock fandom and a watch for the Supernatural fandom (I’m so jealous! I picked things I like and would want to make sure you guys would like and want them too!).
Colours can be changed in some instances. The Sherlock badge necklace’s surface also has multiple options. Winner will be picked by random draw.
You must be following me. Sorry, but I will be checking.
You must be willing to give away your address. Don’t worry, I don’t plan to stalk you (no matter how awesome these prizes are).
You need to have your ask box open and answer within 48 hours.
NO giveaway blogs, end of discussion.
If I learn you have been sending hate/harassment/etc. towards other bloggers, you’re out. If you’re accused, I will demand proof and give you a chance to defend yourself (no worries unless you’re guilty).
ONLY the Doctor Who item can only be shipped to the U.S. All other items should be good to go (unless you live on some excluded island where you must airdrop everything).
You have until midnight on March 14 Central Time. This gives you nearly 17 days to go for it.
I don’t actually own any of these things and just scrolled through etsy, so you’ll be getting it directly from the maker. It may take a while to get to you, so be patient.
Morticia is basically my role model in life.
As I continue to look at Gomez and Morticia, I see this as another recurring theme that makes their relationship work. It’s evident in every episode, but it’s so clearly and elegantly defined in “Morticia’s Romance,” pictured above. When Gomez and Morticia meet, it’s more than just a physical attraction, or being interested in the same things. Gomez sees her headless dolls, and he’s into it. Morticia sees his trains and dynamite, and she’s into it. Morticia’s mother chides her for talking about weird food she likes, and Gomez says he thinks it’s wonderful.
When they are wed, Fester points out that they’d only known each other for three days. Morticia quite reasonably replies, “What better way to get acquainted?” Translation: she already likes what she sees, and she’s committed to accepting whatever else she finds later on. Gomez has already demonstrated that he’s not some kind of creep or cad who’ll use her or hurt her; he was going to do the right thing and follow through with his commitment to Ophelia, and when it becomes clear he can’t, he lets her down in the most gentle, dignity-preserving manner - and he doesn’t even like her! If a man is that nice to people he doesn’t like, Morticia can be secure in the knowledge he’ll be good to the one he loves. She is free to accept a lot on good faith.
What most people think of as a “soul mate” usually ends up being some kind of weird-assed, unhealthy codependency thing. Gomez and Morticia as characters aren’t like that. I think of them more as how soul mates are “really” supposed to be - supportive, accepting, and respectful of each other. It isn’t about being 100% alike or always wanting the same things. It’s also not about being an “opposites attract” cliche. It’s about finding that one special person who can accept you, headless dolls and all. He may not help you dig the graves for them because it irritates his asthma - but he’ll keep you company and watch.
