Congrats to itsnicetomeetya, morethanwe, and rina-the-strange!
So… that couldn’t have worked better if I’d planned it. Results for this giveaway.
It pleases me that each winner had a different top preference and thus all of you get the phone case you wanted most. I’ll be poking everyone in asks for info to send these. Rina, be ye warned, yours might not go out until this coming weekend since I have to fix up that paint. But the rest should be faster.
If you didn’t receive an ask or if it’s easier for you just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (rina your ask box is closed so that’s one case)

Pros of living alone: almost everything.
Cons of living alone: having to run to the store for your own meds when sick and just wanting to stay in bed.

Okay. I take it back. Posting now.
The post I was essaying on was about family and came down to adults don’t believe kids if they tell them they’re abused.
Those who know me closely know I was abused. Now, I guess a lot more do too. When I finally admitted to being abused—and I could reword this, but I caught doing it automatically and realized how screwed up it is and it seems important to keep— the adults in my life not only believed me, but I had them move rapidly to protect me.
I stayed the night with one of them, he had an officer come and give my statement. I saw my mother finally at like 3am. In the police station. She was the one adult I told who didn’t believe me right away.
But it didn’t matter, she did in the end, and even if she didn’t, he was arrested within the day. And not allowed near me again until I turned 18.
These adults saved me. They believed me and did what they needed to to save me. I hadn’t wanted it. The last thing I wanted was him arrested. But it’s what was needed. The abuse was escalating. And given that my mum didn’t immediately believe me. It would have resumed, and likely gotten worse for me having shared.
Please if you are being abused, you do not deserve it. You don’t have to tell an adult you don’t trust, but find one you do. Or failing that, someone like an SRO/cop who is legally obliged to look into it. And please please please for your own sake, let the law get involved, if the adult you tell doesn’t take that step, take it yourself. If you aren’t believed please find another adult. Please.
If not for you than for anyone else in your family. Even if you think you are the only target. It’s not worth the risk. Save them too. I was trying to help my mum by not telling. I didn’t help her. Not one tiny bit. I just got hurt more and more and more.
And then I have to add. If the abuser claims to be repentant, you can take the claim. You can forgive them. But don’t go easy on them for it and please for your own sake don’t go back. I did and he just founds ways to be abusive without breaking laws.
Your case might be different, I thought mine was. I was wrong, so very wrong. And you are worth too much to be wrong about that. Forgive for your own sake, but remember they earned what they got and they lost the privilege of having you in their life.
Argh well that soap box was lost. Apparently putting an essay in chat reblogs just gets the essay eaten. I’ll do it later if I still feel it when my fever breaks.
Giveaway over, picking soon.
The “I am obsessed with phone cases and no longer have this phone” iPhone 4/4s Case Giveaway.
It will last until the end of this weekend or until all cases have loving homes.
(Note the white paint on my River Song journal one is peeling off. But I will sand that area and reapply it before sending it.)
Only reblogs count. Please include a list of your preferences in order (if there’s any you just don’t want. Skip them.)
One case per person. I’ll pick winners sometime tomorrow evening. But any entries until then are still valid. Please include which ones you’d like in order of preference on the reblog. Thanks :D

Conner decided to both steal my keyboard AND turn off my screen, so I decided it was Petra time. I love my photogenic cat.
He watched the snow all day and got so excited to go outside. I opened the door, he leaped and then…
