tbh i feel like lup is a character that griffin has been dying to make a central part of the group, and not because she’s amazing and embodies the entirety of the story, but because she creates character conflict. for pretty much the entire balance arc, griff has tried to get the three boys to disagree on stuff, but because of who the characters are, taako and merle being too easy going and not caring enough, and mags practically overriding any conversation or argument by just rushing in has made for a dnd campaign with basically no conflict amongst the pcs
now a campaign doesn’t need to have conflict to be a good one but for an audio only story, conflict is the easiest way to develop the characters and get the boys to really address what’s important to them and what they would fight for, but with a character like mags (which is a very common type let me tell you i’ve been overrided too many times) the other characters generally do not get a say unless they extremely object. which has probably been something very irritating for griffin where he had to literally pull their teeth to get backstory and character details
so enter lup who’s not afraid to bite back at the boys and question their choices and just from that argument we, as an audience, suddenly understand lup almost completely. we understand her motivations and what’s she terrified of and that she, as a character, cannot lose hope. and!! we even got a huge understanding of taako!! i mean look at all the meta that came from just that one interaction because suddenly we see this interaction and it justifies who taako is as a character. i would even go as far to say it developed mags as well
as a dm, griffin has been trying desperately to get the boys to fight against each other with moral choices (wonderland, the chalice, lucas, and others too) and granted they can’t just put out an ep that is an hour of back and forth between the boys of deciding what to do with the chalice, but griffin has been trying to get to develop past the ‘magnus rushes in, taako’s good out here, merle? does something?’ (sorry i forgot what merle’s was OTL) to the point where griffin has tried multiple times to separate magnus from the group to force the other two to take initiative and lup and this new play style is finally making them do exactly that
so TL;DR Lup is a character that griffin has been dying to introduce and is the character conflict/instigator that the campaign has needed for a long time
I’m gonna raise a topic again that I may have done in the past, even if it was just a brief text post, but I really need to get my thoughts out. Okay, so the topic is basically, well… Neurotypicals. We autistic individuals have it hard, we always have. Whether its being bullied for being ‘different’, being lost in translation with our own family/friends, being shamed for stimming and told to ‘stop fidgeting’ or the infamous ‘quiet hands’ bull-crap. Those are just the tip of the iceberg. We’re often treated as outcasts just because of our disorders. Or, you get the other side of that coin where some people just come up with the ‘oh we’re all a little bit autistic…’ *Looks at camera like on The Office*.
NT’s often try and assume they know what we’re thinking or feeling, when in truth, they have no idea and they will never begin to comprehend what our worlds are like unless they’ve lived them. That really bothers me. My mother does it, even my therapist does it. I know they mean well, but I’m telling you that they have no idea how I tick. They can read as many books, blogs, articles and other material on autism and still not even scratch the surface of what I, an autistic individual experience on a day to day basis. That’s why I believe in self advocacy, but the problem there, at least for me, is my severe social anxiety. I would absolutely love to stand up for myself and backtalk a few snarky remarks NT people have hit me with over the years, but I just stand and blink like I don’t speak English.
That brings me to another thing Allistics tend to do a lot to me… maybe most of you can relate to this, but I’m not overly good at emotion and showing it on my face. I’ll laugh if I find something funny on TV or if I’m infodumping about a special interest, I’ll light up like a Christmas tree, sure. It tends to be in groups of people that my brain just goes into sort of a ‘life support system only’ mode and I’m unable to show much emotion. That never means I’m unhappy though, unless I feel that way, which I don’t normally feel anything in those situations… More times than I can count now, I’ll be sitting, minding my own business…not smiling…and somebody (as of late it’s been almost weekly at the same place I go to with the same person) will come up and tell me to smile or smile them self and point to their own face. It’s like… Well excuse me for living, pal… I didn’t realize it was customary to have a stupid smile plastered on my face just for your enjoyment. Of course I’d love to say something, but I’m so terrified to talk to people out of the blue that I just force myself to smile until they move on. I hate it! Honestly, there should be shirts or badges one can wear that state Just because I’m not smiling, does not give you the right to assume I’m upset. I’d love to just stand on a table one day in among a group of all the people who have done that to me and say “It’s just my face! I’m perfectly contented! Move on!”
Another bothersome thing is the fact that those I and I’m sure you all too, choose to tell or inform that you are autistic, some will just turn and say ‘but you don’t look autistic’ or ‘I would have never guessed it of you…you must be very high functioning!’ *exasperated groan…* I cannot tell you how many times that has happened to me and I feel like saying Well please tell me then… what exactly does an autistic person look like? and then nail them for that! Honestly, Social anxiety robs me of so much I could just retort with. I have tons to say in my defense or in the defense of autistic persons as a whole, but either no one wants to listen, or I’m unable to get my mouth to work.
Anyway, in conclusion, Allistics suck… Autistic people have it rough and you all have my respect for holding your own, if you do…and even if you’re unable to stand up for yourself like I am, you’re just as strong. Remember, just because you don’t feel you have a voice, you always do. Whether that’s through the keyboard, speaking apps and etc. This is my way of getting my voice out there. It may go on empty ears, but at least I’m giving it a shot. I could go on about this stuff forever so I’ll just leave it at this. Thanks for reading.
This was originally posted in response to an ask here, but I thought it needed its own post as well too! This spell/ritual will help you cleanse a room of negative energy that might be lingering around in there. This was originally made for a bedroom, but you can do it for any room, or even your whole house. Feel free to adapt this to your use.
What you’ll need: Sage Sandalwood Incense White candles (optional)
Preparation: Open all drawers, windows and doors. this includes closets, dressers, desks etc. Anything where that negative energy can hide, you want that open so you can hit it with smoke. Pull off your sheets, covers, pillowcases, blankets, etc and wash them. If you have sage essential oil, mix it with water and put it in a spray bottle and you can spritz the bed & other furniture with it. (Optional) Probably a good idea to run your pillows through the wash as well too, if you haven’t recently!
Now, start at the door to your room, and work through it, ending at the window. Think of it as pushing all that negativity out and out the window. Light the sage and go through the room, hitting every little corner with the smoke. You can say any incantation you want to at this point, but just make sure you get everything. Inside all your drawers, on top of the bed, under the bed, in the closet, top of surfaces… everything. Push out the negativity with that smoke, and push it out the window. You can make your bed at this point if you like, and put everything back to normal. Now if you have the candle, charge it with your intent. You can do several candles if you like, and then burn 1 candle per day over a course of 3 or more days if you like. Your intent with this will be simple: purify and cleanse. Now light your incense and the candle if you use it, to help purify the room some more. Over the next few days, light the sandalwood incense and the candle, completing the cleanse.
I believe that it wasn’t just by chance that we met but that it was written in our plan long before anyone knew. I think that by [God] placing us together was his way of letting us know that we needed each other. Looking back to the day we were formed I would have never thought even in my wildest imagination that we would make it to this point. I love you all for each of your own reasons. I love you for making my dreams come true. -Normani Kordei Hamilton
lol somehow i watched it -w- but there no subtitle -walk away- :v
Well I know some others who have watched it themselves, thought, the only ones who have been able to watch it are the ones who own the DVD or have shared it to others. Its no where to be found online, as much as I know. But, who knows.
I guess you´re one of the lucky few. Thought, I can wait as long as I can. Atleast we get new content from the manga every week and then. I don´t need more then that
Can u talk about the comorbity between avpd and hpd? It may be partly bc of my bpd that I have a bit of hpd along with my other pds. But my problem is I want constant attention I need it but I avoid it or I do really ridiculous shit to draw attention to me and regret it (like I'll start blabbing my mouth making everyone listen when I had nothing to say except embarrassing shit or I'm constantly like posing and looking good but at the same time like, I avoid it all and don't approach anyone
First of all, I feel like everybody would benefit from viewing this chart. The book it’s from is not available online and I don’t own it, unfortunately, but I believe that the numbers are percentages. The lefthand column is primary diagnosis, the top is comorbid conditions. (Comorbid means more than one disorder is present in one person, in case anybody didn’t know.)
So, assuming I’m interpreting it correctly, people whose main PD is HPD also have AvPD 21% of the time, and people whose main PD is AvPD also have HPD 16% of the time.
I love this chart because it gives you a quick impression of how common PD comorbidities are! Very validating for those of us who feel like we fit “too many” PDs!
People who require extra attention, like people with BPD, HPD, NPD and DPD, can all absolutely have AvPD as well. I think you described it quite well, anon.
I think that the negative reaction that people with BPD, HPD, NPD and DPD receive to our “dramatic” behaviour and “attention-seeking” can encourage us to become more avoidant. That’s my experience of this comorbidity - I feel my Cluster B traits (I don’t have DPD) came before my AvPD.
I have often felt so helpless to prevent myself from expressing symptoms outwardly (violence, manipulation, etc) that I could only walk away from the situation, and try to avoid similar ones in future. However, this strategy never taught me how to process and accept those extreme emotions. It only hid my symptoms from others.
“Contradictory” symptoms like wanting attention and fearing attention might both happen at once; or certain situations might trigger one more than the other; or you might experience one sometimes and the other at other times.
For example, sometimes I’m so convinced I’ll ruin our relationship that I can’t even send a text to my best friend. Sometimes I have a panic attack if I don’t get attention very quickly. It’s okay when I only have one of these, but when I have both, I get very distressed, because the solution to one makes the other worse.
People with BPD, HPD, NPD and DPD also tend to rely on others to validate or provide their identity, to various extents. For many of us, isolation causes our identity to crumble. AvPD encourages us to self-isolate, regularly setting off those identity issues and making it very difficult to seek help or support with them. (AvPD has its own identity issues as well.)
I hope it’s okay that I spoke more generally about PD comorbidity than your question was asking. I thought it would be more helpful. If you needed more about HPD specifically, you could try looking or posting in the #honestlyhistrionic tag!
So I’ve had a theory about Lion for a while that I haven’t bothered making a post about because there was no indication of it actually happening, but after ‘A Cry For Help’ I think there might be something to it.
Ever since Lion’s first appearance in ‘Steven’s Lion’ people guessed that he had something to do with Rose, this was confirmed in ‘Lion 3: Straight to Video’ and expanded on a bit in ‘Rose’s Scabbard’ where we saw the gems reactions to finding out about Lion’s relation to Rose.
Hello fandom guru! With the recent news that Tumblr has failed to meet Yahoo's expectations and has just been devalued by nearly $250million, should fandom be worried? The WSJ article on it has Yahoo stating about there are gonna be changes to try to make it profitable. Is it possible it means making it less fandom friendly, since fandom and business profits don't usually go well? Having gone through the LJ and delicious drama, I'm nervous. Should I be?
Hi, anon! I was gonna make a post about this anyway, so I appreciate the question! But even more, I appreciate you thinking about these issues, because as a culture, we need to be thinking about these issues, as you well know. My answer basically falls along two lines of thought, so here they are.
1. Owning what we build
I keep thinking about this idea of ownership and profit in terms of fandom creating its own infrastructure. To me, fandom as a whole has suffered a bit because we’re currently relying largely on for-profit structures with WYSIWYG interfaces to build our communities. (I say as I type this directly into Tumblr’s wysiwyg interface.) I’m not saying that we should return to the dark ages of mailing lists and internet forums, but I think culturally and communally we lose something by not having to go in and physically build the spaces we inhabit. We’re looking at a generation of fans who have mostly grown up on Tumblr and Wattpad and expect these pre-made hosting spaces to just kind of be here forever—and to be cool about hosting fanworks and fan communities.
Whereas those of us who’ve been around forever know from experience that listservs can vanish overnight, web hosts and server owners can kick you off and delete your website, corporations can and will attempt to delete your communities because they think you write and draw illegal material, businesses can fold and collapse and leave you with years of fandom infrastructure completely demolished.
I think that it’s dangerous to be fully disconnected from the backend, from the code. The main reason I even learned more than basic code way back when is that LJ’s early codebase sucked and was tinkerable with, and you couldn’t really participate effectively in the community unless you also learned how to physically build the community, whether it was by creating your own LJ style, making your own icons or theme, making your own LJ comms, or whatever. Like, I learned how to use Photoshop because I had to use it to make perfectly square 100x100 icons with a 1 pixel border. And I learned the value of tagging and curating because Delicious allowed us to basically build an entire fandom community around self-curated fic recs. And then there’s the AO3, which has essentially been hand-coded from the ground up by female-dominated fandom out of the principle that we need to own the damn servers because owning them ourselves is the only way to guarantee longevity.
That can’t be said enough: owning and yes, even building, our own community spaces is the only way to guarantee longevity. If anyone who actually lived through Strikethrough and Boldthrough and LJ in general, much less the nightmare of Delicious shutting down, actually came to Tumblr with the idea that it would be our shiny new forever fandom home, I would be very surprised. But we’ve all been really content to just be here without seriously looking for alternatives and backups. And meanwhile, ask any Tumblr user under, idk, 16 or so, what the next fandom blogging and discussion platform will be after Tumblr, and I’m not sure they’d have any more of an answer than I do.
2. Valuing female-dominated fandom spaces
It’s not like Reddit hasn’t been going through this same question of how to monetize its huge userbase, but the huge difference is that Reddit essentially already owns itself. Its community members chip in to help it keep running both infrastructure-wise and financially. Its male-dominated spaces are vastly more likely to have adults who want to hop in and get their hands dirty keeping the ship running, rather than jumping ship to go somewhere else. There were plenty of doomsday predictions about Reddit last year that came to nothing because at the end of the day, the community a) is willing to fight for its survival and b) has a major stake in the direction of the website by virtue of having built the Reddit community on a model of volunteerism, hand in hand with its management.
Tumblr’s userbase, on the other hand, essentially joined a ready-made platform that was already operating under a start-up model. The goal of Tumblr has always been to be a profitable business, so instead of viewing its users as the reason it exists, Tumblr sees its userbase as a byproduct of its existence. And I think we see that reflected in the lack of respect Tumblr users get (especially compared to Reddit’s users, who are typically revered in new media as some kind of pinnacle community of the Internet). Even though Tumblr’s userbase is the wealthiest demographic of any social media platform, it’s been repeatedly derided by industry experts as a site for tweens and dumb memes and not a source of revenue potential. In part, Tumblr’s business problems are due to the social devaluation of female-dominated communities and activities—which is literally translating to an economic devaluation.
But half the problem, IMO, is that the businesses who understand Tumblr culture are smart enough to know that they can successfully engage Tumblr users without spending a bunch of money because the whole site is free, and the things Tumblr users value about the site are things smart and savvy businesses & people (like Mic, Dennys, Buzzfeed, Grimes, etc) can tap into without spending any ad dollars. Whereas the advertisers who spend a lot of money trying to reach Tumblr through traditional banner ads are out of touch and don’t seem to have a clue what Tumblr users value. And why should they? Outside of Tumblr, things like an amazing reblog chain or gorgeous fanart or discussions about diversity aren’t seen as cultural capital. As a community and a culture, we can’t expect our work to be viewed as “profitable” work.
For me, the takeaway is that if we want to maintain social media communities around fandom in the future, we either have to figure out ways to build our own communities ourselves, or ways to talk about fandom that increases the visibility of fandom culture and increases respect for it among the mainstream, so that investors of potential social media platforms realize the value of what they’re investing in. This is something that so far Wattpad has been able to do really well, so it’s definitely something that’s possible. But Wattpad also evolved its business policies by building its services around its userbase, which Tumblr has never really done.
Does that make sense? Sorry for the long reply, but obviously this is kind of a big deal. :)
Some wonderful people messaged me and started talking to me about my last list and honestly collaboration is probably one of my biggest inspirations so I ended up coming up with another list!! So here it is I hope everyone likes it!
Driving Mrs. Daisy I posted this title idea on my last list and the wonderful @queentatertots gave me a good idea & discussion about it so here it is;
From the beginning I liked the idea of this episode being about one of the core 5 getting their drivers licence. queentatertots gave me the idea that there should be an episode where Lucas gets his license and everyone in class ends up making him drive them places. Suddenly everyone wants to hangout with him so they can get drives. His new found popularity makes Zay and Farkle really jealous and they decide to try to drive and end up crashing the car. I also kinda like the idea of maybe Lucas having bought his own car with the help of his parents (and a LOT of saving) & maybe thats the car that Zay & Farkle crash & in the end they pay to repair it and its just a great core 5 episode & specifically an episode that is slightly more focused on the boys which we definitely need more of ;)
Girl Meets Talent show Another Idea from queentatertots. This show could be turned into a romantic Markle episode or even just a friendship episode depending on where the show goes
The school decides to put on a talent show and Riley encourages Maya to sing in it. Riley helps Maya practice and even though Maya is very confident all of a sudden she starts to feel really nervous about performing & Riley promises that she will be there to support her and even comes up with a fun dance to do on stage while Maya sings as a kind of ‘duet’ performance. However on the actual day Riley ends up getting held up and is unable to show up for the show (we talked about even making her reason for not showing up being that RILEY got stuck in a closet with Zay instead of the before mentioned Maya in my last post, either way either she is stuck in a closet or the subway breaks down & she gets stuck on it with Zay & Lucas I have yet to settle on which I like better). When Riley doesn’t show up Maya starts to panic and Farkle is the only one there and he helps calm her down. He ends up learning the entire dance that Riley was going to do and goes on and performs with Maya. This could be made a ship episode for Markle by making Maya kind of have ‘stirrings’ of feelings for him here or it could just be made into a friendship episode either would be good :)
Girl Meets Obsessions another that started as a wonderful suggestion from queentatertots <3 I really liked this one & just kinda ran with it xD
So this episode would focus on the idea of getting obsessed with things & how to be healthy vs. unhealthy about it really. The episode would kind of focus on Farkle. A new video game gets released and Farkle becomes obsessed with it. His schooling slips he stops showering he begins wearing all the same clothes and just basically becomes a mess because all he cares about is playing this game. The gang quickly starts to notice that this game is taking over his life and tries to step in to make him realize that he needs to tone it down a bit. Throughout the episode we hear a lot about each of the kids obsessions. for example we find out that Lucas is actually really obsessed with comic books (because of the episode Girl Meets New Teacher when he goes “yea I read it. I read it a..a lot” :P) and maybe Riley is overly obsessed with Bunnies (or something else) & they find our her whole closet is filled with stuffed bunnies and bunny things & the same thing would kinda happen for Maya & Zay as well (I haven’t thought of what they may be obsessed with yet but I hope to later). By the end of the episode Farkle learns that its ok to love the game but that he needs to play it in moderation with the rest of his life & the rest of the group learns its ok to really love something and be passionate about these things so long as it doesn’t take over your entire life.
Girl Meets Hanukah
I posted this in its own post but I’m including it here to.
This would be a christmas episode where The kids learn about the different types of holidays other than Christmas like Hanukah and Kwanza. I’m not entirely sure how they could go about doing this episode but it could be something along the lines of one of their classmates mentioning that they celebrate something else, or even having Zay or Farkle celebrate something else so they all learn about it. A fun way to do it where they also bring back a BMW character would be to bring their Aunt Morgan back and we find out that her significant other celebrates something other than Christmas which sparks the students to learn more about other types of holidays.
Girl Meets Scrooge
This is a second christmas episode Idea which is obviously done so often but I think would be fun to see with GMW. Basically a christmas carol but GMW themed. I think they may have done this in BMW too but I just think it would be a lot of fun to see Farkle playing scrooge (because of his whole wanting to rule the world and cash cabbage chedda cheese spiels) or even Zay being scrooge. Then they have Cory, Topanga and maybe Yogi play the ghosts haha. Basically it could start out with one of them being very against the holidays or selfish for some reason which leads to their dreams of a christmas carol
Girl Meets Flunking
An episode where Maya is at risk of flunking out of whichever grade they are in (9 or 10 obviously sometime in highschool) & if she doesn’t pass her exams and midterms she will have to be held back. The whole gang decides to help her study and practice for each of her classes. Lucas helps her in Gym Farkle helps her in science Riley helps her with Math (I like the idea of this because of the upcoming STEM episode if they don’t have Riley pursuing Math or anything like that I also like the idea of her teaching Maya english & Zay teaching Math or Drama) Zay helps her with English. History & Art are the two classes she is really good at & the reason why she isn’t doing well with English despite how great Harper is could lead into an episode about her needing glasses. In the end Maya is able to pass all her classes and continue on with her classmates
Girl Meets Pets
The gang comes across a dog outside Topangas that seems to have been abandoned and clearly abused. Riley & Maya insist that they help the dog and the gang hides it in Rileys room and cleans it up and takes care of it. Farkle researches how to help animals that have been hurt Lucas and Zay try and give him a bath and Riley and Maya dry him off and even give him a pedicure or something cute like that haha. However eventually Cory & Topanga find out and insist that they look for the owner because it is not theirs. When the owner is found the group is very uncomfortable with him(or her) & the dog clearly doesn’t want to go with them. Cory and Topanga see that the owner is clearly abusive to the animal and Topanga uses her Lawer skills to get the dog taken away. In the end it seems like the dog will have to go to the shelter because Cory & Topanga aren’t able to have a dog so Zay steps up and decides he will adopt the dog so that everyone can still see him (& because lets face it Zay is gunna fall in love with the dog in this episode :D ). This would also be a really good episode for Lucas as well to explore his desire to become a vet. I like the idea of either Zay or Lucas taking the dog but I think I would rather Lucas be very involved in helping the dog get better & fighting to protect it & then have Zay take the dog just because it would show another sweet side to Zay.
Girl Meets Parenting
This episode is going to focus on what its like to be a parent & also kind of the struggles of being a teen parent. So basically at the beginning of the episode the kids talk about some kind of rumour or fact that one of their classmates (some single episode character possibly) has a baby. They find it crazy but don’t really think much of it and don’t say anything about people kind of teasing her or saying things to her and kind of make jokes like ‘at least you aren’t as disorganized as chelsea’ (or something like that). Then in health class their teacher decides to give them all an assignment where they have to take care of an electronic baby for a week. Each person will be a different type of family with different jobs and income and such. Maya and Farkle get paired up as the heterosexual parents Zay and Lucas as same sex parents and Riley ends up being the single mother. (I also like the idea of the pairings of RileyxFarkle LucasxZay and maya as the single mother mainly because it would provide maya with insight into her mothers life and struggle & bring them even closer) There are many different options for pairings for the assignment all depending on the characters situations and where the story is in the show but I’m going off of the first pairings I listed just for consistency. So the core 5 spend the entire week with their children. Maya and Farkle find themselves arguing over the best way to take care of their kid Lucas & Zay argue over their responsibilities and the balance of personal time & taking care of their child and Riley struggles with trying to take care of her child all on her own on top of her school work and personal life. In the end the whole group realizes how difficult it is to be a parent especially at their age. They discuss the looks they all got when carrying around the baby carrier and how they felt judged but at the same time how good it felt to see that they made their child happy. In the end they all realize that while having kids is great its not easy nor is it ideal to have them at their age, and that those who do have a lot more responsibilities and shouldn’t be looked down upon because choosing to raise their child and choosing that life is a big decision. The episode could end with the girl who is a teen mom in the hallway fumbling over all the stuff she is juggling. The girls help her pick up her books and offer to baby sit if she ever wants a night out & the boys stop their classmates from talking about her.
Girl Meets Runaway
I wrote an episode idea where Riley struggles with either an eating disorder or Depression so this episode would kind of be a connected episode probably airing before her mental health gets really bad or even just shortly after while she is struggling to get better.
This episode would focus on Riley and shed light on how much she has been struggling either with Recovery or with her mental health. The episode starts off with Cory teaching them a class in which he gives riley back a paper or something with a low mark. Then at home Topanga reminds her to clean her room or something to that affect and gets a little frustrated with her when she doesn’t respond. This kind of thing continues on in which Riley feels very smothered and pressured by her parents because of how low she is feeling. Riley & Topanga get into a really big fight because of how Riley is acting. Riley is so distraught with whats happening in her life that she decides she doesn’t want to be there anymore/ that it would be better if she just left so she decides to Runaway. When Topanaga and Cory find her note they are panicking and we see Topanaga struggle a little with blame. Maya and the group try and help look for Riley but cant find her. Cory & topanaga get a call from Cory’s parents and find out that Riley ran away and ended up in philidelphia with them. Corpanga drive down there to find her & the three of them have a heart to heart in Cory’s old room and they get a bit closer to helping Riley through what she’s struggling with. This episode would be really good to have because it would help to address how mental health can effect families. BMW was really great at addressing some issues that can occur between families and I would love to see another dynamic to the Matthews family & see them struggling but getting through it together because fighting is kind of a universal thing that happens sometimes with families. Plus this would allow for us to see Riley interact with her grandparents & Topanga a bit more and we’d get to see another Philadelphia set come back :)
Girl Meets Competition
An episode where Farkle and Lucas are on a team against Maya and Riley for a competition either given to them in class by cory or maybe a competition to win some prize maybe at the mall or something like that, and Zay ends up being the judge. Each pair becomes really competitive and determined to beat the other so they start trying to win Zay over by spoiling him & flirting with him in hopes he will pick them. However in the end neither team ends up being prepared because they spent the whole time just trying to bribe zay.
First of all, communication. Communication was quick and friendly, and the team were lovely to talk to just like before. Super happy to have recieved a hand written postcard from them too. A little, yet lovely touch.
Next, shipping. I was told my parcel would be with me within 12-24 days, which is more than reasonable what with my jumper coming from over seas. However, i confirmed my order on the 2nd of Jan 2015, and received it today; the 6th! I was so surprised to come home and have this lovely parcel waiting for me!
Furthermore, packaging. As well as the outer packaging needed for it to be posted, it came in its own bag saying ‘spreepicky, your kawaii wonderland’ and below that 'magical power up’. Which i thought was super duper cute. The inner spreepicky bag is also resealable, so i can use it again which was super neat.
Now, the tiny gift. This time i got a skeleton hand hair grip. This itself came in its own tiny mini-grip bag too, which was great as it prevented snagging on the jumper, which could’ve easily happened.
Finally, the jumper itself. For starters its a one size fits most, which initially was a worry as I like my clothes to be roomy. I needn’t have worried. Its super big, but not too big. The quality of the the printing of the design is fantastic, no chance of fading on washing off. On top of this, the design is printed bith sides, so you look cute from all angles! The quality of the material is great as well, its nice a thick, and fluffy inside, which makes it perfect for cold weather.
I highly recommend spreepicky as your source of cute fashion. Its affordable, well made, and comfortable.
