Stealing this idea from Point-Master-Pete (hope that's okay with them!)

In celebration of one of my favorite holidays, I wanted to hold a giveaway of sorts with various different prizes! Please read this journal before entering!

There are a total of 20 treat bags to choose from. Some contain treats (one of the prizes listed below) and other contain tricks (nothing!). If you picked the right bag, you get the corresponding prize. If you picked a trick bag, you sadly get nothing! :c The bags are already pre-labeled to their corresponding prize in a word document. My sister Terrierking can verify this! 

I'll be drawing 10 numbers. So only 10 of the 20 bags will be chosen. If I draw your number but your bag was already chosen by a different winner, I'll redraw a different number. That way I'm not giving out say, 10 of the same prize!

Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras Must be a watcher of mine!

Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras If you feature this journal in a poll or journal, you can either a) pick another bag to double your chances or b) choose to double your prize. Please specify which you would like when you comment with the link.
Note: each person will only get one number assigned by me. If you feature and choose option a, you'll receive a second number and get to pick a second bag. If you choose option b, you do not get a second number but your prize will be double if you're drawn as a winner.

i rly like this new style u guys... BUT...

ghost must've taken 9 years holy shit

It's that time of year again! This week is Asexual Awareness Week, all about, well, spreading awareness of asexuality. Asexuality is a sexual orientation that's characterized by a lack of sexual attraction. It's a huge, diverse, and often confusing orientation. If you're unfamiliar with it, you can read about the basics here! SemiHipster also has a great journal entry about it here!

If you have any questions you'd like to ask about asexuality or sexual orientation, feel free to comment here or ask questions anonymously on my srsbzns Tumblr. I'm no expert but I'll do my best to explain things and/or point you to helpful resources. You can also read posts I've written/reblogged on the subject. I am an okay-with-sex, libido-and-boyfriend-possessing asexual, and I'm willing to answer almost any question as long as you don't ask me to divulge private info about my partners. (I'm more than willing to get TMI, but my partners might not be!)

Asexual people often grow up thinking they're 'broken', that they'll never experience true love or intimacy, or that they're missing out on the best thing life has to offer. And none of this is true! But popular media likes to insinuate that nobody can ever be truly happy without a sexual partner (just look at all the movies where the Heterosexual Kiss is portrayed as more important than safety or friendship or love or the saving of the entire world/universe) and this can be so, so damaging to people who don't know better. Without campaigns like this awareness week, it can take years and years before asexual people even realize they're allowed to be happy with their lives. That can mean years of doubt, self-hate, and unwanted 'corrective' sex that didn't have to happen.

If you're unfamiliar with asexuality, please take a few minutes to learn about it. If you are familiar, please spread the word to someone who might not be! Asexuality has become much more widely-known and accepted over the years, but the work is far from over.

It's no real secret that I love this holiday. It's not that I'm obsessed with death or anything, or that I even enjoy being scared (too badly). But some small, childish part of me relishes the dressing up, the excitement, the cool, crisp air of autumn, the twilight fading to a night lit by an orange moon and flickering jack-o-lanterns. 

What can I say? I'm a kid at heart. :D

Enjoy the fantastic Hallow's Eve 2014 works below. Whether you prefer your Halloween macabre or Disney-ish, there's something for all tastes.
