They jacked the prices way down on eBay. Normally what I want is like $200 & up, so I'm in a mad scramble to afford them.

Yup. I'm trying to save money, well, truthfully speaking: to buy two more action figures I still need. .-.

Well they are trying to raise... what 10k? That's a big chunk of change. I wish I could donate to them, but I just bought a house... x.x

i agree with @marshmellow-chan, the fundraiser is slow-going but at least it's going, you know? i'm optimistic that it'll be back at some point this year

@Chalky While the fundraiser seems to be going a bit slow, I don't think things look bleak.

GHOSTS OF THE VANGUARD
"the leaders of any intellectual movement"
Where countless things are brought to life by authors who happen to be an unseen force, but very powerful in existence.

This site and our name symbolizes that we are the leaders of our field, taking control of an often obscure title and turning it into a symbol of pride. We may never see our work in print or flying off the shelves, but we know who we are and what we stand for. If you intend to haunt our medium and instill a strong symbol of leadership and fearlessness into a craft that is largely misunderstood and thankless and yet you intend to push forward in spite of the odds, this is the site for you.

COMING SOON

Happy Birthday, Felina!
Hello Spectres! Gather ‘round, because we have a Staff birthday to celebrate today!

Today is Felina’s birthday! Our fearless leader, as the saying goes, and a long-time, long-standing member of Staff turned Owner. She deserves your attention and well wishes today, so I hope you will join me in celebrating her!

For those of you who have been long time members of GOtV (even from Freedom of Speech days!) you will undoubtedly be familiar with Felina and her presence here in our Archive and Community; she has been a member of Staff for a number of years. The dedication she has continually shown this Archive and Community through the years, through numerous Staff and Owner changes (until becoming Owner herself!) and her commitment to this Archive has never wavered. The years pass and times may bring change, both good and bad, but one thing that has been such a gift to this Archive is that Felina has been consistent and present through all of it. I can say from experience, firsthand, that the Archive would not still be standing as it is without Felina; we all owe her so much for her countless time spent maintaining and assisting this Archive in it’s continued success. Thank you so much for all you do and have done, Felina!

Outside of her dedication to our space here, Felina is a woman to admire for both her natural born talents when it comes to writing (and artistry in general!) alongside her years of work to continuously improve her talents—even going to college to study and polish her writing to professional levels. I can speak from personal experience to her talents and what it has been like to receive her gifts in writing, as she is my writing partner, and how proud I am of her that she never stops. We all know writing is difficult; it’s a struggle to keep going and the older you get, the longer you’re a writer, the harder still it can be—but Felina doesn’t let anything stop her ambition and her wants when she sets her mind to a project or an idea and through that dedication I have seen her talents grow to something both unattainable and inspiring. I know that’s something all of you can appreciate as writers as well, and I want to tell you here in this public space, Felina, how proud I am of you. I tell you all the time you’re #goals and though you always laugh off the silly way I say it, I hope you know how much I mean that. You’re my writing partner because I know I have a lot I can learn from you, and I feel very privileged to be close enough to you to benefit directly from your skill. Thank you for that, and I know I speak for many when I say that I cannot wait to see where your talents take you in the future.

To any of you who are new, you may not know that Felina is my best friend (has been for the last eight years) and I met her here on GOtV, back when it was called Freedom of Speech. This Archive has a very special place in our hearts, which is why we decided to take over ownership of the Site rather than let it die when the previous owners wanted to let it go. Here in this space where we first met, Felina, I want to tell you how much I love you. You have been such a support to me all of these years, and there is no one else I would rather have spent this time with. I hope you have a fantastic birthday, and that you know here, publicly, in this space you helped shape and now allow to continue to grow and thrive, how much you are loved and thought of, today and every day.

Happy Birthday, sweetheart!
Dot, the GOtV Staff, and Community

Happy Birthday, Chye!
Today is the birthday of one of our Supervisors, Chye!

She's put in a lot of time and effort for GotV, and as great as the site is, I know it wouldn't be quite as amazing without her hard work and contributions~

I think I could go on about how amazing she is for a long time, so I'll keep this brief! Everyone, if you have a moment to spare, please wish her a very happy birthday! She deserves all your praise and more.

For everything you do, Chye, thank you~ Happy birthday to the power of infinity!!!
