Hi! I'm Sam. Non-binary queer individual basically just fucking around and pretending I'm running a proper blog. For more detail, read my full About. Formerly Cher-Guevara. They/Them/Theirs pronouns please.
Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn’t for race, X-Men doesn’t sense. If it wasn’t for the history of breeding human beings in the New World through chattel slavery, Dune doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of colonialism and imperialism, Star Wars doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the extermination of so many Indigenous First Nations, most of what we call science fiction’s contact stories doesn’t make sense. Without us as the secret sauce, none of this works, and it is about time that we understood that we are the Force that holds the Star Wars universe together. We’re the Prime Directive that makes Star Trek possible, yeah. In the Green Lantern Corps, we are the oath. We are all of these things—erased, and yet without us—we are essential.

I have a BUNCH of Steam codes (and one for Origin) and gift-able games I’ve accrued over the last couple years.  They’re just sitting there not being enjoyed.  I’ve decided something must be done about this.  And that thing is a giveaway.  They seem to be popular on this here website and no one else is biting for them in my social circle.

SO!

  • Below is the list of games up for grabs
  • Likes and reblogs both count, as many reblogs as you’d like.  But don’t spam, don’t be that blogger, y’know?  I know I hate it when I see that stuff spammed all over my dash.
  • I don’t actually care if you’re following me because I just want someone to enjoy these games. If you want to follow me, that’s great, if not, that’s cool, too.
  • I will, however, at least check that it’s a real blog and not just some throwaway account.
  • I’m arbitrarily picking a date right now off the top of my head and that date is April 25th.  Contest ends April 25th at 10pm EST, at which time I’ll randomly choose a winner.

And here’s the list of games, in no particular order:

Whew.  So, there you have it.  I’ll choose the winner on the night of April 25th and attempt contact.  Have a method of Tumblr communication open!  If I don’t hear back from the winner by the end of April 27th, I’ll choose another one.

Best o’ luck, y’all!  And let your friends know. (^_^)

"Chris and I have been in a lot of dark places together, and the thing I love about Chris, we met over some ‘apple juice’ and it was like one of those experiences where there’s a dude you meet and you’re like ‘Man, you’re a cool dude.’ Then a whole bottle of ‘apple juice’ later you’re like ‘Man, we’re friends.’ Just a dark, dark place."- Anthony Mackie.
