What's with the name?
Allow us to explain.

And you thought you were creative. One woman made her geek boy very happy by proposing to him in a very unique way. She took him on a tour of Toronto by making a scavenger hunt out of locations from Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim comic. The end result was her popping the question. See all the shots they took along the way plus what the rings look like!
She wrote, "I made several different envelopes, each marked with a X that corresponded with the order they were in. On the back of the envelope was an address. Dylan had to find each location using his phone and lead us there either via public transit or walking."
"Once we arrived at the location he would open the envelope. Inside each envelope was a picture from the comic that corresponded with where we were standing," she wrote.
And here's where she popped the question using a Scott Pilgrim-like image she created herself.
"Once we arrived in front of Casa Loma I handed him the final envelope. Inside was this picture which I spent a week doing in MS Paint. It is clear I am not an artist but this part was important to me," she said. "He looked at me extremely confused until I pulled out the ring box."
She answered a lot of questions about the proposal project on reddit (where she also posted a link to the full set of pictures). This included the fact that the couple had previously spoken of married life together and that he wouldn't think it weird were she the one to propose.
She also pulled another switcheroo by asking her fiancé's mother "permission."
She wrote, "We spent time in the kitchen laughing and her telling me that if I took him I couldn't bring him back. No return policy."
