Weekly Review: FOTM Club

As actually none of you know, I receive a nerd jewelry subscription box called Fandom of the Month Club. It’s really cool. I decided for the weekly review, I’d review the box. It’ll have it’s OWN EMOJIS TOO! AND PICTURES I TOOK MYSELF! SO FANCY.

Anyway. This month’s theme was POKEMON. I know. Weird. I guess when they started designing it Pokemon GO was still all the rage. (it’s not now.) It’s cool, hypothetically. Well, you’ll see.

Quality:👌👌👌

Cuteness: 😍😍

How much I would wear them: 👑👑

Overall: 🔥🔥🔥

Yeah. The box wasn’t great. Although I’d put that mostly on the fact that NOBODY PLAYS POKEMON THE CRAZE IS OVER.

Anyway. Let’s go through the pieces.

First thing I see:

postcard-and-magnet

I immediately knew it was Pokemon. (They didn’t exactly make it hard to tell.)

Initial reaction: Ohh…

The second thing I saw was the muslin bag.

bag

I’m just glad they didn’t put “gotta cATCH EM ALL”

I like it. It’s pretty. I guess.

The next thing (or things I guess) I saw were these hairclips.

hairclips

They’re the three first Pokemon and Pikachu.

Initial reaction: when the fuck am I gonna wear these

Next, we’ve got these earrings. I think these are about the best of the lot, tied with what’s next.

The head sticks out your ear, and the body and tail are coming out the back. I’d wear these, totally. My main complaint is that the body and tail are not actually connected to the head, they can just slide off when the back of the stud is off. I’m gonna lose those bits. It’as a given.

Last, but not least:

img_1715

It’s a compact mirror! I think this is really cool. It’s like you open it up and OOO ITS NOT A POKEMON IT’S YOUR FACE (WHICH IS JUST AS UGLY AS A POKEMON sorry ignore that you’re beautiful I love you)

all

So what do you guys think? Cool? Not?

My overall opinion: It was not my favorite box. It was my least favorite box. I like some things, some will never see the light of day again.

Also even though I didn’t like this one the company who makes it is bae and run by a kickass nerd mom gorgeous queen so buy her stuff.

My sunglasses are still broken,

Ruby

P.S. Okay so in the pic with all the things there’s something that says F(Pokeball)LLOW ME TO THE GYM I chose not to include it because I’d like to know who in their right mind would want that IF YOU WANT IT MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING BUT THE BAG AND EARRINGS MESSAGE ME

P.P.S. Sometime I’ll show you my all-time favorite box.

P.P.P.S. I lost one of the lenses to my sunglasses

That’s right. The kidnapping of Emmy Alexander, who just happened to be me. But when you hear about all of these kidnappings on the news, you expect the worst. Not mine, though. Mine included a secret society that the public, after learning about it a few years before, thought was now a modern myth, searching the globe and stealing back the pieces of a puzzle that we didn’t know what information it would hold, and running from another secret society that was bound and determine to stop us no matter what. Oh, and you can’t forget John Raymond, who just happened to be the one who kidnapped me. It was technically his fault I was in the middle of this, thrust into a world of secrets. I couldn’t complain, though. And no matter what, John couldn’t say we didn’t make a great heisting team.

P.P.S. I’m gonna try writing some sort of fantastical short story about it when I get back.

12 years of the SPN Family

SUPERNATURAL ALL SEASON SPOILERS

Individual spoilers are shown

12 years ago, a long-haired Sasquatch and a super-mega-hot guy dressed up in layers, plaid, and leather, and began an era. If you don’t know much about Supernatural, here’s the basics. Sam and Dean are brothers who have been raised as monster and demon hunters. They Season 4 Spoilers have started and Season 5 Spoilers stopped apocalypses (Apocali? Who knows), saved lives, kicked ass, and many other things. If you’re a Tumblrite, then you’ll know that they’re famous for hijacking posts and making them about Supernatural. Here are some examples: (aka I wanted to waste half an hour looking for Spn Tumblr posts)

img_1367img_1369img_1370img_1371img_1376

 

Anyway. You guys get that. But I’m not writing this about their post-hijacking, or their world saving, or even the intense greenness of Jensen’s eyes. I’m writing it about the fandom and the actors.

Let’s start with Jared Padalecki.

First things first: he’s super hot.

 

 

 

 

Second, he has this campaign: Always Keep Fighting. It’s a campaign to help advocate for people with depression, anxiety, OCD, addiction, or other mental illnesses. Here are some photos of his campaign:

img_1382


Primarily, it’s Always Keep Fighting, but recently it’s beaches off into other things: Those just as powerful things being I Am Enough (Pic 3) and Love Yourself First (Pic 1). He speaks about his struggle with depression and says many important and influential things: these are some of my fav quotes from him.

img_1389img_1386img_1388

(Whew, there’s a lot of photos in this one.) (I’m typing it on my phone and my thumbs are TIRED ugh) (I’m on my computer now yay)

He’s said so many inspirational things, and he’s using his fame for good, which you see a lot of celebs doing but not enough. He’s helped people, made people aware when they weren’t, and gotten people out of dark times. Also, his character Sam Winchester has some of those issues. I mean, those boys got plenty of issues, but him particularly. He struggles with a severe addiction in Season 4, we see lots of self-loathing throughout the series, and his childhood was very messed up. He’s also lost a ton of people and been physically hurt a ton himself, Unspecific Season Spoiler (Kinda most seasons) and died multiple times. And yet, he’s kept fighting through all of that. He’s an inspiration to us all.

 

Next, let’s talk about Jensen and Misha.

Both very attractive men. (ruby put some pics in here later k thx-you)

They have this campaign, quite like Jared’s, called the You Are Not Alone campaign. They, with the help of IMAlive and To Write Love on Her Arms, will fund the #SPNfamily Crisis Support Network. This will train people to be able to help people who have issues with mental heath, self-harm, or an addiction. It will also give people an opportunity to chat with said trained people for free. It’s a great campaign that, as small as it is, has done much for many people. To quote Jared: (also above!) “If you can make a difference for one person, then it’s worth is.” These campaigns, all of them, have made a difference in countless people, whether providing emotional support, hope for the future, or just a simple knowledge that they are not, in fact, alone.

Now, you may be wondering: “This is great and all, but why are you telling us this now?” ILL TELL YOU WHY! Today is September 13th. Today marks the 12 year anniversary of the TV Show Supernatural. 12 years since Jared and Jensen got the first script. Since the episode got released that has changed so many lives.

Look at where we are. Look at where we’ve started.

Ruby.

P.S. I’m wearing my AKF shirt to get in the MOOD.

P.P.S. 666 words in honor of SPN day. Wear your merch! Or write “Saving People, Hunting Things, The Family Business” on your arm and show it off to show your support and love to everybody around you! Or not. All your choice! ❤

HAI

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I’m Ruby. I may get a co-writer later but for now, it’s just me! I like to write about all sorts of stuff. I do book reviews, fandom, nerdy stuff, and some just talking about my SUPER INTERESTING LIFE. But for the most part, I’ll be telling you about my experience with fandom. What it means to me, what it’s like being a fangirl, and some of my favorite fandom things.

I’m gonna introduce you to myself by doing an interview. With myself.

Ruby: Hello! How are you?

Ruby: Pretty good. My school is boring.

Ruby. That sucks. So, I’m gonna ask you a few questions. Kk?

Ruby: Kk, sounds good.

Ruby: So, when did you first become a fangirl?

Ruby: I think I first really started fandomness the second I opened the first Harry Potter book. Those first led me on the track to full-blown nerdyness. I think the first time I really swan-dived into it is when I joined Instagram and realized there were others who not only liked the same books, movies, and TV shows that I did, but that they enjoyed them in the same way I did.

Ruby: That was long. Okay. What’s your favorite part of being in the fandoms?

Ruby: I’d have to say the community. Like, all these people! They’re all YOUR people. They get you in the way others don’t. It’s really great.

Ruby: Cool. I’d have to say that about me too. What are you looking forward to for writing this blog?

Ruby: I’m really excited to share some of my favorite everythings with people on the internet. My favorite fanfics, my favorite fanart, and my fav other blogs. Also, maybe sharing it with a co-author. I think that’d be cool.

Ruby: Well, thanks for being here! We’ll see you soon.
