When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.

These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could. 

If anybody ever tells me that storytelling isn’t important anymore, I’ll show them this post.

WHY ARE THESE TOTALLY AWESOME BOX SETS ON MY DASH?

Because, they’re free. Duh.

So yeah, GIVEAWAY! WOOHOO! I’m having a kickass, awesome, fantastic week (and I’m also terrible with keeping money) which is great for you because you can get this super sweet awesome stuff just by sitting in your bedroom. That’s right, all those hours of mindlessly scrolling have finally paid off.

So what the hell do we have here?

There are three separate prizes here

AVENGERS BLU-RAY BOX SET HOLY CHEESE NIPS

Yep, this baby represents my tumblr in the fullest way possible, so of course it would be the first prize available.

This shit costs $186 sweet captain kirk’s nipples that’s awesome

YEAH WELL WAIT FOR THIS

Harry Potter Ultimate Wizard’s Box Set

My love for Harry Potter will never die. Ever. AND IT HAD BETTER NOT FOR YOU, EITHER. If it seems like it’s dying down, little by little - well, I’m sure this box set will make it shit it’s pants with joy.

This baby costs $349 oooh child fan me, I’m gettin’ overwhelmed!

WHO ARE YOU? THE DOCTOR. DOCTOR WHO?

EXACTLY.

The complete Doctor Who series 1-4 box set, oh my lawd.

This includes many extremely beautiful people such as NINE, ROES MINUS DRUGS, TEN JESUS FUCK PERFECTION IS TEN, MARTHA JONES, DONNA FUCKING NOBLE, AND ALSO WILF.

This heartwrenching saga is $139 but it’s okay because I brought a banana to the party

WHAT DO ALL OF THESE HAVE IN COMMON? Why, rules of course:

  • Reblob as many times as you want idgaf
  • Likes don’t count DUH HAVE YOU DONE A GIVEAWAY BEFORE
  • You don’t have to be following me because you will probs unfollow afterwards, but it would be cool if you at least stopped by
  • No giveaway blogs, I mean jesus too much free stuff for paris hilton over here

I will be using a random number generator to figure out the three winners. MAKE SURE YOUR ASK BOX IS OPEN SO THAT I CAN TELL YOU THAT YOU’VE WON. If you win, it will be a surprise which one you get ohohoho

DISCLAIMER: The Avengers and HP box sets will of course be pre-ordered, so it may be quite a while until you receive your winnings. On the other hand, whomever gets the Doctor Who set can liveblog it to make you both super jelly and impatient.

Oh, also:

“Don’t drink!” cried out the little Princess, springing to her feet; “I would rather marry a gardener!”
