Hot Topic is known amongst artist groups as one of the worst offenders of art theft in U.S. retailers. I know artists are important to What Pumpkin, and I’d imagine multiple cases of art theft would be a very big deal. The most well-known of the cases were stolen fan art from independent artists, which is the same demographic the Design Contest was aimed to. I’m an artist myself and I wouldn’t want to support a store that steals from my peers.
The people running Hot Topic have zero respect to artists and to copyright law. They’ve been ripping-off independent artists’ storefronts, and continue do so. The whole company really should have been shut down long ago.
If you support artists, independent, fan artist, or any kind, you should oppose Hot Topic and MSPA’s association with them!
Tell What Pumpkin to kick Hot Topic out of the Design contest RIGHT NOW.
We have so little time left to stop this please tell them that it is completely unacceptable to do any sort of business with petty art thieves.
Even if you don’t know what to say, or if you think it would compromise the contestants; It won’t. Just please voice your thoughts in anyway you can put them. Don’t let Hot Topic get a dime out of Homestuck.

When his father disappears, Stiles sets out to find him, venturing dangerously deep into werewolf territory, where he meets Derek, who saves him from being snacked on and tries to get him safely back to his home…
Allow me to introduce you to the Red-eyed Crocodile Skink. Since these guys were recently discovered (mid to late nineties), there isn’t a whole lot that is known about them, but I’ll share a few facts with you here.
These guys can grow up to ten inches in length, though the average is more like seven.
They’re pretty shy and choose to play dead as their defense mechanism.
Other than geckos, these guys are one of the only lizards that vocalize. Their sound is described as a barking noise when they’re in distress
I like the term “We’re expecting” when people talk about pregnancy, because it makes it seem like there could be more than one outcome. It’s all like: We’re ‘expecting' a baby. But it ‘could' be a velociraptor.
