A Gawker commenter totally nailed the awfulness of the fake death proposal we saw yesterday.
Hello, this is my boyfriend proposing to me on stage at Anime North 2012 in Toronto,Canada. I had no idea he had this planned! It was my 2nd masquerade ever and until I see him on one knee, I have no idea why I can't get off the stage, lol
Cute! Although I'm a little disappointed he didn't say, "in the name of the moon, I'll marry you!"
Sometimes the internet is used for evil. Spamming, arguing, unnecessary crossover fanfiction writing... the list goes on. Ok, I'm just gonna come out and say that really, most of the internet is evil. However, every once in a while it wipes the Cheetoh crumbs off its chest, pulls itself together, and makes something wonderful. This cute proposal is one of those rare moments. Skip to 4:26 to see the interwebs for once mobilized in the name of good, not evil.
This is how my boyfriend proposed to me! It is a picture of a set of custom G.I. Joes that John made of me and him. Since he has a bad knee he did it this way. In the background there are stormtroopers, iron man, thor, my lego guys, R2D2, C3PO, cobra vipers, and Duke and Scarlett (from G.I. Joe).
