Things We Saw Today
Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish
In super adorable things that make our hearts melt, an artist named Robert Fink worked with friends to develop a pretty involved game called Knight Man in order to propose to his then-girlfriend Angel. He filmed her as she played it (clearly much to her confusion) to document the occasion. The video is a little long, but it's worth it to see her reaction when she realizes what's happening. Congrats to the happy couple - and if you want to play the game, it's here on Fink's website! Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
Getting down on one knee is just so old-fashioned. To ask his girlfriend to tie the knot, Joe Wakim compiled a fake movie trailer using clips of her favorite films in one of the geekiest (and awesomest) marriage proposals ever.

If You Thought Lord of the Rings Was an Epic Journey, Wait Until You Watch This Nerdy Scavenger Hunt Proposal
This may be the sweetest, most involved geek proposal I've ever seen. Luke Plastow put together a Lord of the Rings themed scavenger hunt for his girlfriend on Christmas Day last year with the intent of asking her to marry him at the end. He wrote to us to say, "She is a huge Tolkein fan and it seemed right that if I was going to give her a ring it should be LOTR themed. The ring itself is Palladium, with a stone the same colour as Sauron’s eye. The setting for the stone is the same shape as Isengard. Inside the ring is an inscription in Black Speech saying 'One ring to rule them all.' " Luke, if you weren't already taken...oh wait, you said your fiancé reads our site...best of luck in your lifelong fellowship!

You know nothing Jon Snow
When Jill visited the Game of Thrones exhibit in New York City she had quite a memorable experience, meeting several of the show's stars and sitting on the Iron Throne. A reporter doing a local news segment there just so happened to catch two other Game of Thrones fans who'll never forget their visit, albeit for a different reason: Because they got engaged there. I'm going to forego my kneejerk cynical comment on Westeros weddings and just say that this is pretty freaking cute. Nerd love is the best love.

There's An Apparate For That
Ok, that title may sound slightly gory but trust me, this is great. YouTube user Eddie Zarick has a tendency toward tinkering. So much so that his girlfriend took to calling him Iron Man. So when it was time to propose, he paired both things together and created a replica of Tony Stark's arc reactor that doubled as an engagement ring holder! I guess the only thing cooler would be if Zarick actually had the arc reactor where Stark does but we're glad his ticker is working just fine on its own.
