'No matter what happens to you ...'

While we're on the topic of Final Fantasy's white mage, this androgynous character is the subject of a cute Valentine's Day card that's being sold by etsy seller kiracards.

The front of the card features the white mage's "perished" sprite and the following words: "No matter what happens to you..."

Flip it open and here's what you find:



My favorite aspect of this particular card is that it's appropriate for anyone. If you're a gay man and you want to give it to your same-sex sweetie, for instance, you imagine that the white mage is a guy. If you're a lesbian, on the other hand, you imagine that both the black and white mages are ladies. And if you're straight? Why, you imagine the white mage is a guy and the black mage is a gal (or the opposite, if you want), of course.

Who's to stop you?

Oh, that's great! :)

BTW, it looks like you can't buy the cards directly from this etsy seller; you just buy a template that can be printed from home or from a print shop. That could be a deal-breaker for some (likely would be for me), so I thought I'd mention it...

Lol, i saw that just after i buy 5, so seller give a refund to me :))

Bryan Ochalla said...

Oh, no! Sorry I didn't mention it sooner. It's strange that she doesn't sell them herself, but maybe it's just easier this way.

Anyway, I'm glad she gave you a refund!

Did you still buy one of the templates, or did you back out completely?

Nuts) said...

This girl deliberately stole the idea from someone else, then put her own lame slogans on stuff. When I called her on it, she childishly said "nyah nyah" in response to the accusation of stealing. Thanks for supporting thieves, guys!

Bryan Ochalla said...

Wait a second, Bad Fish. If this person really is a thief, I obviously do not support her or her efforts to rip off people.

Also, whether or not she's a "thief" depends on what she's supposedly done. Did she copy someone else's idea? Did she literally steal someone else's work? Did she do something in the middle?

I'd really appreciate your thoughts on the matter, if you're willing to share them.

Hm. Interesting discussion. I'll with hold judgment.

Bryan Ochalla said...

The funny thing about all of this is that I didn't write about the cards in order to push business toward the etsy seller. I just liked the cards! Oh, well...

Viewtiful_Justin said...

Yeah...it was a little unfair of the commenter above to point fingers.

This card is awesome, I search on etsy and I didn't find another card even similar to this one, so I dont know what she is talking about.
