VAMBRACE’S SUPER SQUID SQUAD SQUIVEAWAY!!
You may have seen these delightful squid pillows before and thought, “I sure would like one of those, but I have no money!” Well I have good news for you! You can win a FREE or DISCOUNTED squid! How you ask? Let me give you some details!
There are three prize packages available!
GRAND PRIZE: One person will win the one-and-only Hodge Q. Podge (picture 1), made from the quilt I fashioned out of leftovers from commissions. You will also receive a lifetime of joy from his cuddles, and my eternal friendship.
If you are chosen as the grand prize winner, you may opt to choose second or third prize instead, and another grand prize winner will be chosen.
SECOND PLACE: One person will win a FREE squid commission of his or her design. You tell me what to make and I’ll make it at no (or at least little) expense to you! It can be any size, any color, anything at all. Doesn’t that sound swell?
If you are chosen as the second prize winner, you may opt to choose third prize instead, and another second prize winner will be chosen.
THIRD PLACE: One person will win 50% OFF the purchase price of ONE squid commission. For a large squid, that’s a savings of $35, and for a small, that’s a savings of $20! PLUS your shipping is paid up to $20! Whoa!
All prizes include $20 worth of free shipping. That is, shipping will be free for US winners, and should an international contestant be chosen, you will receive a $20 discount on shipping. While I’d like to offer shipping worldwide on this giveaway, it’s drastically expensive to mail a giant squid body pillow overseas. But you’re still getting a great deal!

1: You must be following vambrace.
2: You must reblog the original squid post at least once. You may reblog it as many times as you wish, but that will not affect your chances of winning.
3: You must reblog this giveaway post, and you may like it if you so desire. There is no limit to the times you can reblog it, but please be considerate of your followers. Don’t spam them with giveaway stuff! Each like and reblog will count as one entry in the giveaway. You can set up a queue, make a schedule, reblog in waves, whatever. As far as “giveaway blogs,” I don’t really care. As long as your conscience is clear, I don’t have a problem with who wins.
The giveaway will start July 8, 2014 and will end on August 7, 2014 at midnight (Central Standard Time). Reblogs and likes from 7/8/2014 to 8/7/2014 will act as names in a hat, and three names will be drawn on August 8 before midnight.
Winners will be notified by ask box, so make sure your ask box is open. If the winner chosen does not wish to take the prize package they are drawn for, they may decline, and another name will be drawn.
The winning message will include a promo code, which will be exclusive to you. To accept your prize, you must send the promo code to firstname.lastname@example.org within 24 hours, along with your shipping information. Once you have accepted your prize, it acts as a ticket which you may use at any time to redeem your prize package. If you win third prize or are outside the US, you may send the remainder of the money via PayPal to redeem your prize.
Winners will not be publicly announced, but I will announce that all the names have been drawn and that giveaway is over.
That should cover it! If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, you may contact me via tumblr ask box or at email@example.com.
Best of luck to all of you, and Go Go Squid Squad!!

Peppy Kitty. So many March birthdays in this line.

holy jesus christ
THIS WAS UNSETTLING THAT SILENCE IS THE AI PROCESSING WHAT YOURE SAYING AND REALIZING THAT IT IS IN FACT NOT A REAL PERSON, THIS ROBOT IS NOW PLOTTING YOUR MURDER
well if anything the person analyzing the recording afterwards had an interesting time.
The first time i saw this vine, i laughed so hard.
YESSS MY FAVORITE!!!!
I ALMOST SHOVED MY COMPUTER OFF MY DESK OH GOD
I said that this couldn’t be that great.
I was so wrong.
DO YOU EVER MISS PEOPLE THAT YOU DONT EVEN KNOW
LIKE “WOW THAT PUNK GUY WHO STOOD IN FRONT OF ME IN THE LINE FOR THAT TOUR AND WE SHARED A LAUGH, MAN THAT GUY WAS COOL I MISS HIM”
IS THAT JUST ME OR DO OTHER PEOPLE DO THAT TOO
With 12 notes I have verified that, in fact, other people do this too
Thank you I dont feel so alone now
I tend to drive too fast on those curvy backroads. And the other day there was a guy in a car behind me that drove at the same speed as me. So of course, we became friends. And I was legitimately sad when I had to turn into my neighborhood and he was no longer driving with me.
30 Day Sherlock Challenge: Day 11: least favourite character-Sally Donovan.
She just made a bad impression on me when we first see her in a study In pink and she’s quite nasty framing Sherlock for the kidnapped children in the riechenbach fall. Kind of warmed to her in the sign of three but still not a fan.
She didn’t frame Sherlock for kidnapping children in The Reichenbach Fall. Moriarty deliberately created a scenario in which all the evidence would suggest that Sherlock was guilty. She did her job, which was to interpret the evidence, and she did it well - she was wrong, but her methods were not. She was a victim of Moriarty’s manipulation.
She was still rude to Sherlock, calling him a freak every opportunity she got. I know Sherlock is rude to her too but he’s Sherlock, he’s rude to everyone because he doesn’t know otherwise. Greg never hated him for it. She could have stayed professional and ignored Sherlock’s character.
I think it’s quite clear that there’s personal history between them, hence why such a generally professional woman has such an intense dislike of him and says things like “he will always let you down”. Lots of people have written about this in depth.
Being rude to everyone does not excuse the rudeness. Explaining a situation does not excuse it.
No, but hating Sally for her rudeness while adoring Sherlock in spite of his (greater) rudeness, particularly when you’re someone who spends a lot of time thinking about this programme and all of its intricacies, is a Bit Not Good.
Oh. I didn’t realize how vague I was being. I was talking about Sherlock’s rudeness in response to the “but he’s Sherlock, he’s rude to everyone because he doesn’t know otherwise” bit. Neither of them should be excused for their rudeness. Personal history or personality trait explains a behavior, but doesn’t excuse it.
Yeah, they’re both rude as fuck. And they probably have reasons to be. And it’s really obvious that the hatred towards Sally is because she’s rude to the main character/the person you’re supposed to like.
If Sally was the main character in the series, people would be giggling at how she’s rude to this random, annoying guy who always gets into the cases she’s trying to solve. Just like how we giggle at Sherlock’s rudeness towards Anderson.
