Heroine Tourney BRIBES - Vote Luna


So if you're following the YAsisterhood's Tournament of Heroines much you will notice that authors are resorting to bribery to get their characters through the first round.

I cannot bribe you as they can. I can not offer you additional scenes (unless you want fanfiction, and I feel like those days are behind me. Not going to deny that I wrote fanfiction once upon a time & they still exist on the internet) or any super secret book related stuff. Because um...I didn't write the books and JK Rowling never seems to tweet. (Actually I think she tweeted one message on repeat for awhile).

But then I thought "What can I do?" and came up with 2 things I have going for me. I can knit fairly well (the scarves pictured above are actually very early knitting projects) and I have a case of Girl Scout cookies in my closet.

Here is my bribe
If Luna WINS against Sophie on Friday I will pick one RANDOM supporter (you need to comment on this blog) to make a Harry Potter item of their choice. It can be a scarf, hat or armwarmers. We can discuss pattern, house color and any other requests later.

AND for another random supporter I will send a box of slightly old Girl Scout cookies (from this past spring). My current selection includes Lemonades, Peanut butter patties (Tag-a-longs) and Carmel Delites (Somoas). I may even be able to scrounge up some Thin Mints.

To enter
1. Comment on this post
2. Tweet in support of Luna Lovegood #HeroineTourney
3. Vote for Luna in the Tournament (honor system obviously)
4. Have an address that I can mail to via my post office

Bribes are always helpful uh? ;)
Those scarves are about as awesome as Luna! Hermione may be my number one girl, but Luna comes in a close second.

I'v tweeted and voted, hoping to show my Team Luna support!

I commented on this post yesterday! Why didn't it take??? Anyways, I asked you if you crochet or knit?

I have a friend that has an amazing pattern for scarves and she won't share the info. So she has been selling them. I have a button on my blog that takes whoever is interested, into her blog.

THANKS TO EVERYONE for your help! I've decided that I'm still going to send out Girl Scout cookies because it was such a close wait. Deciding about the knitting. I couldn't have done nearly as well without all of your help!

Mindy: It's on the other Team Luna post I believe. But to answer your question I knit, taught myself during college. Tried to learn crocheting but it just didn't work for me. I get most of my knitting patterns off of ravelry or blogs for free. I only buy a pattern if I absolutely can't live without the finished product.
