Landmark #1 – #2020RABirthdayAuctions

Good morning, all. As in previous, I would like to keep you updated about the progress of the auctions.

Calling the #Hobbit and #Castlevania Fandoms

The suggestion came up in the comments (thank you, Rachel) that some of the items in the auctions overlap with other fandoms.

In case this post does indeed reach someone…
