READ THE LAST ONE OUT LOUD
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED
The posts that pop up during finals week are the best kinds of posts
knowing tumblr someone will probably get offended but seriously its a joke and i think most tumblr artists feel this way at some point or another
Every damn day XDDD
The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.
He is called bread bread and he lives in bread
yo les mis fandom where you at?
x - Burcon 13
Having met Richard on several occasions, I can promise this is EXACTLY how he acts in person.
Did I ever tell you guys how much I love Avatar Kyoshi?
Just look at those moves.
Death once had a near Kyoshi experience.
Death looks under the bed every night to make sure Kyoshi isn’t hiding beneath it.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS AND SHARE THIS.
Aki-Con wants to hide this under the rug, they have blamed the victim and called her a liar, and DJ Victor is NOT to be trusted. He is a known felon, who has raped two known girls now, but who knows how many others who have not spoken up of this. All I ask is that you reblog this and get this attention out there.
Share it with local news media stations, other convention goers, etc.
I actually tried to warn Aki-Con about this man being a felon and they ignored me.
And guess what?
Another innocent girl got RAPED because they ignored the facts.
Not only that, but they IGNORED the girl and tried to say she was lying when she immediately went to staff for help.
EDIT: So, Victor Malice is a part of a cosplay group with around 400 members, give or take.
Which is still a very small part of the pacific northwest and Seattle cosplay community. Out of safety and concern for the members, I shared the post about this situation to the group.
The admins are friends with Victor Malice and DELETED THE POST as to HIDE what happened to people.
IGNORING WARNINGS IS WHAT GOT US HERE, PEOPLE.
If Aki-Con had heeded the warning they received and dropped him as their DJ, then a girl would NOT have been raped by him at Aki-Con 2013.
I personally find it SICKENING that his friends are being his accomplices and are trying to hide these facts from everyone.
This includes the Aki-Con staff that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes the cosplay group admins that are his friends and knew his past,
This includes any of the people who knew his true nature and kept quiet about this. All of this. And even now, they are trying to hide it.
LADIES, PLEASE KEEP YOUR GUARDS UP AT ALL TIMES.
Bad things CAN HAPPEN AT CONVENTIONS.
I will tell you this to the end of the world, because I don’t believe in hiding these facts. I don’t think it is “protecting” anyone in anyway to try and hide what happened. So yes, against their wishes, I will help spread the word about this poor girl and anyone else who may have been victimized by him.
Because I don’t want to see the numbers increased by fools who tried to hide the truth about people who are like DJ Victor Malice.
This isn’t just about one man having done this, this is about making sure people know these kinds of things do happen at conventions.
EDIT2: Luckily someone had left the tab up and had the conversation. So, since it was requested, here was the post and the arguments.
Admins were tagged, and the post was deleted. Remember how it was argued that the admins would tell the group about anything if there was any kind of safety concern?
Well, no warning has been posted. The post got deleted as soon as the admins noticed it and nothing has been said about it since.
My friend on Facebook told me about this.
He’s been convicted in Arizona for sexual conduct with a minor, attempt to commit, and dangerous crimes against children.
If you are in the Washington area, or near by like Vancouver, please be aware of this situation. He is known for going to conventions, and a lot of people are actually acquaintances with him. Since places like Aki Con clearly make huge mistakes like this, please be extra careful to be safe at cons.
I, for one, will not be going to Aki Con again.
This is very upsetting to learn, and I had believed it would not happen again, that the staff would see their fucking errors and do something about it. I fear this is the end for Aki-con for my self, and I suggest for it to be the end for others.
This kind of blatant dishonesty- In not just this, but for how they have treated attendees and Vendors as well. I have only been to Aki twice. In 2012 and this year, and this year I had thought was significantly better from putting the Vendors in the mildew infested and cold garage all day for three days-
Then of course the missing children event when there was a twelve year old cosplayer missing and staff had told me, with a fretting mother and crying sister that there was NOTHING they could do. I thought it was better this year, I thought they have gotten rid of the mentioned DJ that had done this heinous deed before.
I do believe I will also no longer be attending Aki-con, and I again say that others should also do the same. It maybe be fun while you’re there, but you don’t know what you’re inadvertently supporting until it’s too late.
This really hit home when I realized I’d met her at kumoricon this year. She was staffing for registration and we talked about her ariel cosplay and how she wasn’t 18 just yet unfortunately.
This horrifying and I’m so sorry to hear this has happened to her. I’ve never personally attended Aki-con, but I will definitely never attend now.
This is something that everyone needs desperately to understand. Anime conventions are not in anyway safe places. Even the ones we love the most can be dangerous.
Everyone, women and men, if you are touched or grabbed or forced into any situation that is making you feel uncomfortable, find a staff member/security and if necessary, talk to authorities.
I’ve been going to these things for 7 years now and there are still stories that you hear about women getting attacked.
Do not keep silent.
If the convention you are attending is worth anything, they will help you. They will do everything in their power to keep you safe. Protect yourself.
