Okay, I remember thinking that it was kind of anticlimactic when I first read the end of Lioness Rampant, and, spoilers ahoy, Alanna won the fight against Roger by just letting go of her sword, and letting Roger impale himself. But this time, I suddenly realized something….

This is why I love being a part of a fandom online. I’ve probably read Alanna’s series at least 5 times in the past few years, and I never throught to draw that comparison. That is really insightful.

Hello, everyone! This is Tammy’s assistant, Jae, here to announce something the two of us started kicking around as an idea when we saw how many followers Tammy was getting.

SO, HERE IT IS:

3,000 Follower Giveaway Celebration!

To celebrate passing this tumblr landmark, we’re going to be giving away 5 signed copies of her books (one for each winner). Here’s how it’s going to work.

1. There will be 5 winners total. Each will get to pick ONE of Tammy’s currently-published novels for signature. 

2. You MUST be following her blog in order to participate. After all, this is a thank-you to all of those who pushed us over the 3,000 mark.

3. Each individual is allowed TWO entries, NO MORE. That’s a reblog and a like. 

4. Entries will be allowed until March 25th, and this post will be periodically  reblogged on Tammy’s tumblr until then to give everyone a fair shake. 

5. Contest-only blogs will not be named winners.

On the 26th, I’ll pick 5 usernames at random and message the winners. This means you have to have your ask boxes open at that time. Winners will need to get back to me within a week with the book that they want signed and where I should send it. If I don’t receive a message from a winner within that week, or I can’t reach them via ask, I’ll pick someone new. Once I’ve heard from everyone, we’ll post a public congratulation to let everyone know that the contest is over.

Good luck, and thank you all for being here!

GAH giles’ face in that last frame is adorable. I am pretty sure I’ve been in love with him since Band Candy.

That’s how you do education

onelazyfeminist:

if helga hufflepuff isn’t ur favorite founder then ur wrong because when all the other founders were like ‘i’ll teach the smart ones’ and ‘i’ll teach the aristocratic ones’ and ‘i’ll teach the ones who r willing to fight bears with their teeth’ helga was just like ‘fuck that i’ll teach anybody who wants to learn’ and thats how u do education

I love how all you have to say is “Tunstall” and “the thing” and not only does every Tammy fan who has finished the Beka books (or been spoiled) understand, they pointedly ignore it and rage about it. It’s like the one thing we can all agree on as a fandom.

I hear what you’re saying here, because “the thing with Tunstall” deserves all the angry feels

…BUT, I will have to respectfully disagree with that last statement, because the one and only thing we can all agree on as a fandom has got to be our overwhelming love and admiration for Raoul of Goldenlake.

Voluntary Mansalughter

I’ve been studying a good 10-12 hrs a day for the Tx bar exam and my husband just stopped by my desk to complain about the FOUR PAGE PAPER (Four whole pages, oh the horror!) he has to write for grad school.

All the while, I’m wondering if a jury would consider his complaining to be adequate provocation and lower my murder charge down to voluntary manslaughter….

You may notice that my package just went from a “sort facility” in Houston, Texas to one in Charlotte, North Carolina.

I can’t wait ‘til the day that I finally get to say,

“Mom, Dad, you don’t have to work anymore. Relax. I can support you now. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me.”

Amen.
