BOOK 5: FANDOM UPDATE

Originally planned to be an assortment of submissions inserted into a binder and presented to Bryan and Mike and New York Comic Con, Book 5: Fandom has evolved into something a bit more epic. Our team has enlisted some highly qualified and passionate fans who are helping us transform this humble collaboration into a full-on publication.  In short, think: official Legend of Korra artbook, but instead of containing concept art and behind-the-scenes commentary, it will consist of your letters, photographs and fanart. Additionally we have overhauled our sorting and proofing process to make managing the ever growing slew of submissions a more feasible undertaking.

This gift will not be mass-produced; only a few hard copies will be printed for Bryan, Mike, Janet, and whoever else on the Korra team might want one. Considering we have agreed to keep all submissions confidential, if a digital version of this book is ever released, it will be slightly abridged, as we will be required to omit any submissions that we do not receive permission to publicly share. The unabridged digital version, containing unprintable media (aka video), will also be sent to those receiving hard copies.

IMPORTANT: If you have submitted or plan on submitting something through Tumblr, there are high chances of your work being resized to meet Tumblr’s size limits. To avoid this, please provide a link instead to the work you would like to submit. Dropbox, Google Drive, Mediafire are all good services to use for this.

In addition to that, we are aiming for top quality art pieces to put into the book. This is why we are asking you all to provide work that is print-ready. Please prepare your work as close to 300DPI (dots per inch) as possible, so that when printed, it will be viewed in its high resolution beauty. (Note that standard photos/images online are only 72DPI, which makes them a lot smaller when sending to print).

Also for those that submitted photographs of your hand-drawn work, you may want to consider scanning them and sending us that instead.  

PLEASE SEND ALL RE-SUBMISSIONS VIA THE SAME TUMBLR ACCOUNT/EMAIL ADDRESS YOU SENT YOUR ORIGINAL SUBMISSIONS. 

__________

The deadline for re-submissions as well as new submissions is Sunday, October 19th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time (New York City time).

People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say

Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes

This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal. 

What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things 

People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life

Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.

This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously

This shit pisses me off

How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
