Still watching the later seasons of Rizzoli & Isles is like continuing to regularly hang out with the vicious, decomposing zombie of your best friend because you remember how cool they used to be

An additional note:It seems the winners aren’t receiving the first part of the message I send, which is just to let folks know they absolutely don’t have to accept if they can’t give out personal information, and if they’re uncomfortable doing so via tumblr, they can send their info to the business email. 

tamorapierce:

ALL PARTICIPANTS, PLEASE READ THIS!

Hey everyone! Jae here again. First off don’t panic, the contest is not cancelled! We’re just changing how we’re doing things. 

The change comes for two reasons: The first is that I didn’t realize at the time of the contest’s creation that contests relying on the like/reblog function were against tumblr’s ToS. I was modeling the contest off of those I’d seen circulating before, and I should have done more research. 

The second thing is that I didn’t realize just how many new followers this would bring in. Hi everyone! We’re glad to have you. 

Since there’s no getting this post back now that it’s in the ether, I can only hope folks see this change to how things are being done. As before, we’ll reblog this periodically for the duration of the contest, to help let people know how it’s going to go.

Most of the below rules still apply - no contest-only blogs, et cetera. However, rather than five winners, we’re going to have one winner every two days until March 25th. Likes and reblogs no longer matter.As long as you’re following Tammy, you have the same odds of winning as everyone else. We’ll be picking at random from her followers, rather than from those listed on this post. I must be able to reach you via ask or fanmail. If I can’t, I’ll pick a new name. All winners must respond within 24 hours, or I’ll choose a new name. We’ll reblog this post each time we pick a winner, to remind people to have their ask boxes open. The rest remains the same! You can pick from any of Tammy’s currently-published novels and will receive that book signed. The books pictured above are not the only ones you get to choose from, since that seemed to be a point of confusion for some. 

I’ll message the first winner today, so watch your inbox!

Winner number one got back to me, so winner number two will be chosen today!

Two winners today, since I don’t work on Saturdays! Make sure your ask boxes are open.

Two winners today, since sadly one of those I contacted didn’t get back to me. 

Hello, everyone! This is Tammy’s assistant, Jae, here to announce something the two of us started kicking around as an idea when we saw how many followers Tammy was getting.

SO, HERE IT IS:

3,000 Follower Giveaway Celebration!

To celebrate passing this tumblr landmark, we’re going to be giving away 5 signed copies of her books (one for each winner). Here’s how it’s going to work.

1. There will be 5 winners total. Each will get to pick ONE of Tammy’s currently-published novels for signature. 

2. You MUST be following her blog in order to participate. After all, this is a thank-you to all of those who pushed us over the 3,000 mark.

3. Each individual is allowed TWO entries, NO MORE. That’s a reblog and a like. 

4. Entries will be allowed until March 25th, and this post will be periodically  reblogged on Tammy’s tumblr until then to give everyone a fair shake. 

5. Contest-only blogs will not be named winners.

On the 26th, I’ll pick 5 usernames at random and message the winners. This means you have to have your ask boxes open at that time. Winners will need to get back to me within a week with the book that they want signed and where I should send it. If I don’t receive a message from a winner within that week, or I can’t reach them via ask, I’ll pick someone new. Once I’ve heard from everyone, we’ll post a public congratulation to let everyone know that the contest is over.

Good luck, and thank you all for being here!

4x14 - Maura is family.

I feel like Frank Sr. is a little resentful of the fact that Maura has been so openly welcomed into the family that he has been almost completely cast out of. How can an outsider like Maura get welcomed into his family’s arms while, he, a blood relation be cast out of it? I dunno. I feel like he’s been living with that for a while. I mean, Maura gave his wife a home, his daughter a safe place to land, and a helpful hand to his entire family. There’s gotta be a little jealousy and a tinsy bit of resentment there…
