"What kind of a person do you think I am?"
"The kind of person who makes hard decisions when she has to. Like you did on the freighter. You told me to get to the helicopter, and you told me you’d get Jin, but you did what you had to do. And if you hadn’t, we probably all would have died instead of just my husband."

You a pilot?
No, not yet. But I wanna be one, more than anything.

#help me#i know this is so cute but it’s just#i will never be over the sheer amount of respect that raleigh has for mako mori#this isn’t just plain infatuation or attraction#this is an admiration down to his bones that lights up his entire being#finally giving him a purpose after long wandering years after losing his brother#the first person since yancy that he’s truly wanted to make proud#and was willing to do anything to make that happen#it’s not as simple as attraction or even love#it’s that from the moment he meets her on#she and her happiness and success and wellbeing#are as important to him as oxygen#raleigh would gladly face down a million kaiju on his own for mako#not because he wants to possess or own her like so many men#but simply to allow her to continue living#to reach her goals#and i always think about#how the one thing he wasn’t expecting#was just how devoted she’d become to him in return#even if he hadn’t asked for that- even if that hadn’t been his intention(via queensamwise)
It doesn’t cost a damn thing.
Sprinkle that shit everywhere.
this post is my dream come true
We all deserve to die…
As someone with a vested interest in the Las Pegasus Unicon fiasco (and someone who has been working and planning conventions for 4 years now), I decided to do some research on DashCon for the exact same reasons - it appears to have been a complete and total disaster.
If anyone has ACTUAL PROOF that either confirms or debunks any of the following claims, please let me know.
Here’s what I’ve learned about DashCon so far:
con staff trying to push more expensive tickets onto people that apparently came with a Steam Powered Giraffe show ticket (which is apparently not happening) (VERIFIED BY: |)
- vendor hall mostly empty for some undisclosed reason
Welcome To Night Vale ditched the con and cancelled their panel and performance when DashCon would not pay them. attendees sat in the room for an hour before they got an explanation (VERIFIED BY: ||||)
people paid RESERVE SEATS months in advance for the WTNV panel (VERIFIED BY: ||||)
- Con staff insisting they had people in the thousands attending and present at the venue, when real numbers were closer to 500
Panels and events were not planned at all, with hotel mints being given out as prizes (VERIFIED BY: ||)
Games room had just a single TV in it and some tables
there was a BDSM panel and DashCon could get sued for allowing minors into it, along with other +18 panels where they did the same (VERIFIED BY: |)
some people started to sing Let It Go and were verbally assulted
DashCon now blaming the bank for not being able to pay WTNV
people are demanding partial or full refunds (and they will not likely see any of it due to the con not actually having any money)
it has already spread around that DashCon was likely a scam
last night they ran an emergency #SaveDashCon thing and raised like 17,000 bucks
nobody knows where it went
most of their contracts were verbal only
rumors of the venue now threatening to shut the whole thing down
As someone who witnessed first-hand as Las Pegasus Unicon went down (I tracked the whole thing over the course of about 4 months until the dust began to settle), I’m genuinely interested to see how this plays out. You’ve got a whole con full of bored and annoyed Tumblr-goers who will either a) just plain not show up tomorrow, or b) show up and be very angry.
However it plays out, let this be a lesson and a wake-up call to ANYONE who EVER thought it was a good idea to let TUMBLR run a serious event. I know you all love eachother ect. ect. Tumblr fandom community, but good intentions do not make a con - and you’ve proven yourselves not responsible enough to run a con.
DashCon needs to die here. It will not be coming back. Enough damage has been done.
UPDATE: I’ve had quite a few people come forward anonymously to verify some of the claims, so I have updated as such.
