You might have thought it had already passed us by, what with the St. Patty's Day and Easter decorations already in stores, but, nay, friends—Valentine's Day is this Thursday. If you're still looking for a card that'll melt the hearts of your favorite nerds, look no further. I have scoured the furthest reaches of the Internet (i.e., Tumblr and Deviant Art) to bring you this collection of geeky ways to show your love.
Before you scroll down, however, I have a present for you: a C&CC exclusive set of 'Vengertines.
Many thanks to TGG and The Mister for lending their creativity to this project. (You can applaud TGG for the Fury wit and The Mister for the Coulson Pheels.)
Perhaps you prefer your Avengers a little less realistic? How about a set of Derpvengers cards?
If your loved ones aren't Avengers fans,
(You can purchase a set of these for only $5—all proceeds will go toward a good cause. Check out Things I've Seen and Heard for more info.)
These gents aren't always good with the "feelings," but they try.
How about an Avatar: The Last Airbender card? (Some of which are uncomfortably innuendo-y for a cartoon about teenagers ...)
You could look to the future with these Star Trek: The Next Generation valentines.
Or these Mass Effect ones.
If you're looking for something with a little less pop culture, how about some racy robots?
Or some that are a little more work-appropriate.
Maybe your darling is a history fan with a dark sense of humor? (Thanks, Erin!)
And this last one's the right mix of cheese and sweet. (However, calculators can be sexy, too.)
If you still haven't found your perfect match, check out the valentine round-ups I did in 2011 and 2012 for more.
