Dear You,

It’s Valentines day today. For some fans, this hallmark holiday passes without a second glance. For others, it is a day that serves as an in-your-face reminder about how alone and lonely they are. What was once perhaps a sweet tradition of expressing your adoration for a lucky someone with a handwritten note has turned into a horrible conspiracy by large corporations to make sure you empty your pockets; or punish you by making you feel alone and worthless.

But fear not! Empty Kingdom is here! And we love you. It hasn’t been long since we came into this world in our present form, but it has been several lifetimes in the making. Since we are less of a company and more of a pack of lone wolves that banded together as a family, we all know about loneliness.  However, we do also believe in true love, because we have found it in each other… but we consider all of you who’ve supported us as our family as well -so we want to reciprocate the love to those who need it on days like these.

We are officially re-appropriating February 14th, aka “Valentines” day to “EMPTY KINGDOM FAN APPRECIATION DAY!” Yep it sounds more official in all caps and an exclamation point.

So from now on, don’t feel bad when February 14th rolls around… don’t even feel the need to each chocolate or buy bottles of cheap wine. If you’re going to take someone out; do it because you want to, not because you’re told to.  If not, treat yourself to something nice and remember, you’re not alone. For you are here, we are everywhere. And for your support, we do love you in a way no other site does.

Forever yours,

Empty Kingdom

If we could give each of you a handwritten love letter, we would.. in the meantime please enjoy these handcrafted
anti-valentines day cards we’ve created for thou.
