I love all of you, but your Rafiq is late for work! 

Seriously, talking to all of you has been the highlight of my week. I love seeing how passionate you guys are about the AC series, as well as how intelligent and well-versed in culture, gaming, and even law you can be. Warms this old Rafiq’s heart, it does.

But I have to go to work, sadly, so while I encourage you to keep sending messages and keeping this conversation alive, I won’t be able to answer you until tonight.

Tumblrhood, you guys are amazing.

Oh definitely. The Tumblrhood would be the greatest defense team in the history of law. 

And our compensation?

SHOW US SOME EFFING GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE OF AC3!!

Ahem. Just a suggestion.

Unfortunately, this is a side blog, not the main blog of any of the moderators so the Tumblrhood HQ cannot follow you itself. However, I’ve already started following you on my personal blog (estherparker) and will encourage the rest of our followers to check out your blog!

This is me encouraging you guys. Go check out ezioauditoretheassassins!

iamfireandiamsteel asked: You guys and cool and all but Tumblrhood is a portmanteau, not an anagram.

How can you say it’s not an anagram, huh? Look:

T: Terrific

U: Utopia

M: Made

B: By

L: Likable

R: Respectable

H: Hashashins

O: On

O: Only

D: Da Internet

In all seriousness, you are correct sir, and even though I did not write The Codex, I’m going in and editing it now. Thanks for pointing out the grievous error!

KAYLEIGH, ISN’T THAT AN ACRONYM? :P

Anyway, Bureau Leader here! I corrected the mistake (it IS portmanteau) in the graphic. The post is now updated.

I’m surprised it came back to our dash, it’s quite old! I made it back when I still used Picnik instead of CS5. (RIP Picnik)

LOUIS BE QUIET I WAS BEING CLEVER WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY BRINGING SHAME UPON MYSELF.

Tumblrhood is an anagram for Thumb Drool. And Lord Hot Bum. LORD. HOT. BUM.

I vote that we start referring to each other as such.
