Friendly reminder that Rue’s parents were probably killed by the same ravens that kidnapped her. She was raised by her parents’ murderer (◕‿◕✿)

friendly reminder that rue still doesn’t know who her real mother and father are (◕‿◕✿)

Friendly reminder of the fanon theory that she’s actually Fakir’s sister [link] and therefore adoptive and abusive Raven-Dad and her estranged brother who doesn’t remember her because they were so young and traumatized by the events (the only family she has) would have had a hand in killing the parents she’ll never know.

…when you put it that way, man that theory makes things even worse.

I believe in that theory, but holy shit, this just makes it so much worse. D:

Where’s the fanfic.

……SDCC, unless it’s trademarked, I don’t think you have much ground to stand on.

Oh SDCC, no.

You don’t have a trademark on “Comic Con”, you tried and failed to trademark it because it was too general. Why are you going after Salt Lake Comic Con (which has been around for years) but not Pheonix Comic Con, Philadelphia Comic Con, Denver Comic Con, or any of the others of “Comic Con”s not affiliated with SDCC?  More than 50 cons in the USA use this naming scheme [link]. Wizard Wold itself organizes 24 different “Comic Con”s. In fact, SDCC previously tried and failed this same stunt against Chicago Comic Con.

This article’s actually pretty great: [link]

You could potentially, and probably have, trademarked “San Diego Comic-Con”, but not “Comic Con” by itself. That’s absurd. That’s a general term.

Hell, I’m pretty sure SDCC’s trademark is for the specific spelling of the full phrase  "San Diego Comic-Con" with the dash, so that’s some pretty broad application attempts.

They are so not winning that lawsuit. This is like King trying to trademark Candy and Saga. You can’t trademark general terms.

I don’t think they’re going to win it. I don’t think that they’re even going to take it to court. What I think is happening here is they sent out the Cease & Desist letter to see if Salt Lake Comic con would comply without fact checking their trademark claim. They don’t have a significant legal leg. they know it because this same move failed against Chicago Comic Con previously and they failed to trademark “Comic Con” in 1995.

This is a frivolous legal action, and it’s pompous bullying on SDCC’s part. I want the con-going community to mock and shame them for even trying it.

I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?

Yup

Hi! I read that you're a volunteer in SDCC and I was thinking about voluntering next year, but after the arrasment post, I'm not really sure anymore. There are amazing perks that justify the arrasment or that helps you put up with it until the end of the con? Thanks and I hope you have fun the rest of the con! :)

I was a volunteer for SDCC multiple years. I even straddled the line between volunteer and staff one year. It’s up to each individual’s judgement whether or not it’s worthwhile, and what department and job you end up getting pulled for is a huge part of that. Unless things have changed drastically (which I doubt) you do not really have a choice in departments. That’s luck of the draw of who needs what when.

Technically, you could be Little Barda if you chewed Bubble Gum

I’m still only 5’1”, too short even for Little Barda, and I like and am more familiar with Big Barda. I have no intention to compromise to a different character because of height. Plus, I don’t chew bubblegum.
