anonymous asked:

how exactly do group orders work???

omg group orders are my Thing anon you came to the right person to ask! I’m actually going to be doing a vlog explaining about group orders this week!!

okay so how group orders usually work:

overall info

  • group orders are used for either fanmade goods, or official goods, in situations where buying as a group would just be more simple and easy. Usually you’d join to either to save on shipping, get items that wouldnt otherwise ship to your country, or just get items you otherwise wouldn’t have known how to get lmao. (What I mean by that is if you don’t know korean sometimes getting certain goods can be hard, especially with fanmade stuff.)
  • most group orders consist of three payments, buying the goods, paying for shipping to the group order manager, and then paying the group order manager to send stuff to you.

whats a GOM?

  • one person runs the group order, they’re called a group order manager (gom)! The gom is the person who coordinates with the fansite or buys stuff from the store and has everything shipped to them, and then they personally ship it to you!
  • so if you want to join the order, first before ANYTHING check out the gom’s information. most are based on twitter, and have faq pages and spreadsheets as their pinned tweets or descriptions.
  • It’s really important to make sure you read a gom’s faq so you don’t accidentally make a mistake in joining! And everyone’s policies are different so it’s just safe and important to check faq’s.
  • Then, most gom’s keep spreadsheets of all their orders so you can check and see what orders are open! Also, goms twitter pages will be full of pictures and information of their open orders so just scroll through and take a look around.

actually joining an order + payment one

  • okay so you found an order you wanna join!
  • goms keep google forms as ways to join orders
  • the first page of the form is usually pictures of the thing youd be getting, info on the order such as what it is, how much it is, how to pay for it, how many payments there will be, etc
  • so then, on the next page of the form, this is usually where you’ll fill in all your info, like your name, contact information, quantities or specifics of items you want, your address, and information regarding how you paid so the gom can match your form to your payment
  • open up paypal or venmo or google wallet or however you’re supposed to pay for the order, and in most cases, make sure you pay before submitting the form!
    • there are some special orders or things like some interests checks where you don’t pay away though, make sure you read the first page of the form carefully to understand when you pay. but most orders you pay before submitting the form.
  • when you pay for the items, the form usually says what you should write in the payment comments on venmo or paypal. I always make sure my full name is written somewhere in the payment comment.
  • once you’ve sent the payment, filled out the form completely and checked everything is okay, submit the form!
  • the gom should send you an email saying they got your payment and form :)

okay now what + payment two

  • yay you joined an order!!
  • so now you wait for the group order manager to send out an email to everyone who joined when they know how much shipping is from the fansite or store, to them. They take that shipping price and divide it between how many people are in the order, and thats what you pay
  • for example, if shipping is $50 and 23 people are in the order, everyone sends the gom $2.17!
  • usually theres a deadline for this payment, make sure you dont miss it!

payment three (domestic payment)

  • the items came to the gom yay!!!!!!! so close to getting to you ;~:
  • now the gom calculates shipping to your house, and emails you how much it’ll cost, and you pay it (don’t miss the deadline for the payment!)
  • the gom mails out the item to your house
  • wait a lil
  • ta dah!!!!! u got a thing

i didnt go too much into group order etiquette with this but im gonna go more into that in my vlog when i film it. basically, don’t miss payments, and dont message the gom questions that can be answered via faq or form, and dont get mad at the gom if the item is taking a while to be made or ship, that isn’t their fault.

if you have any questions or need help with this kind of stuff you can always ask me!!

Girls having fun~

"you dont need tools for witchcraft"

i know tons witches, espcially on tumblr, always say this but a lot of times it dosnt seem true. those same blogs posting about “not needing tools” (myself included) reblog photos of sparkiling crystals and decorated altars. in comparison, our own practice can seem inadequate. but remeber that witchcraft is an old practice, and while over centuries this practice has grown and changed, the basis of the craft is old as fuck. the mothers of our practice most likely didn’t have access to a houndred different crystals, the entire whole foods spice rack, and dozens of specialized tools. the mothers of our craft were creative and worked with what was locally available, not $30 organic vanilla beans flown in from mesoamerica (unless that just so happened to be where they lived). the mothers of our craft were nifty and clever, and knew how to make everything out of anything. so, while beautiful, shimmering, lovely items are always nice -and can make us /feel/ witchy- our witch moms founded this practice without them.

         It appears we have a traitor in our midst

How Dan and Phil probably broke up #61
  • Phil: I still haven't figured out a name for our son :/
  • Dan: Oh but I've already named him
  • Phil: really? wha-
  • Dan: no, shrek, don't touch that you'll get hurt, son

god but i am so annoyed at the star wars prequels? how have people dealt with this for a decade??? knowing that it would be so easily fixed? 

the story of how anakin skywalker fell to the dark side when there was so much good in him could’ve been amazing, and the changes needed to make it so aren’t even that big. give me an anakin that’s actually damaged from being a slave his whole life; an anakin that latches onto padme not because she is “beautiful” but because of her compassion, strengths and beliefs; give me obi wan meeting anakin w/ his master and actually bonding with him, agreeing about his potential even if he doesn’t quite believe an old prophecy; give me padme’s simmering fury and protectiveness over a child who fell into slavery which she thinks is disgusting but she can’t concentrate on that right now because her whole planet comes first. give me an anakin that gets to react to the jedi’s fears of him; give me the child that goes from being a slave to being sworn to an order that’s strict and tells him no; don’t fear, don’t form bonds, be better. give me anakin and obi wan bonding scenes. give me palpatine actually being subtle in his manipulations. have padme and anakin keep interacting through the years and anakin falls into slow love with her without realizing, because she is justice and compassion and strength.

 you can keep so many scenes if you just tweak them. so many plot points still work with some background added to it. give me anakin asking if he could see (/free) his mother and beind denied by the council because jedis can’t have connections, anakin, you can’t be attached. have obi wan reluctantly agree that they can’t do it. have him still have the dreams and still protect padme, but when she catches him dreaming and he tells her the truth (that he dreams of his mother in trouble and he’s not supposed to see her but he can’t stop thinking of her, how he abandoned her to that life–) and she’s the one who says they should go to her. because padme never believed in slavery and never wanted to leave her behind in the first place but she had bigger problems then, and maybe she feels guilty about that. have anakin realize he loves her then. and she’s watched him grow and watched him toy the line but she’s not there yet, and he goes to his mother and fails, that’s fine, that’s fine, but he doesn’t kill the entire camp. he’s not there yet. he does it by the code, but then he comes back to padme and he tells her the truth; he wanted them dead. he wanted them all dead. he wanted to kill them with his own hands. she tells him the same thing– that anger is human, that it’s normal to feel– and he says he is a jedi. he must be better. and then he admits; he still wants them dead. he is unsatisfied with the justice he got. he’s scared of how much he wants them dead. isn’t he a jedi? isn’t he good? and padme tells him he is so good. he is allowed to have feelings, she tells him. anger and fear don’t lead to bad things by themselves, letting them control you does. he tells her he loves her and she sees the man he could be and says they can’t. but she wants to, too. 

give me a padme that is just as annoyed at the jedi way as she is any other injustice in the world.give me an anakin that struggles with his feelings and not being allowed to feel them. give me an obi wan that doesn’t understand that struggle and those feelings because he’s never hated, not that much, but anakin has hated his whole life. he has been angry and afraid. give me a palpatine that says things just like padme does; that validates anakin when he has feelings he doesn’t want to confess to obi wan because he is just that much on the side of the jedi order that tells him to just not. give me a obi wan that has failed a friend; a brother, for real, not by convenience of absence but by failing to question his teachings. give me an audience who can sympathize with anakin and can almost fall for palpatine too because he isn’t so obvious the jedis should’ve seen him coming ages ago.

give me an obi wan that listens to count dooku’s warnings and feels torn, not because he doubts the ways of the jedi, but because he’s seen what those ways can do. give me padme and anakin in a slow burn love, with no wedding but with careful stolen moments through time where they let themselves feel, where they both love each other’s passion. where they are both a bit afraid of what it could all mean. give me a yoda that feels actual fucking shame when he realizes his speeches about fear and attachments and feelings is what drove anakin right to palpatine’s waiting treacherous words. give me a yoda with a reason to exile himself and to not want to tell luke the truth; not because the truth is hard for luke or might tempt him, but because the truth is hard for YODA to admit to.

anakin falling to the dark side out of fear of being powerless to save padme– to save his family– just like he failed to save his mother works, tbh. but  give me a padme who doesn’t die in childbirth because she “couldn’t go on”, like she didn’t have two kids, like she wouldn’t have fought tooth and nail to bring back democracy and been the first to lead the rebellion? give me a padme that doesn’t die in childbirth and raises leia for a few years so her fucking comments about her mom makes sense. give me bonding scenes between anakin and people, and superimpose that with the jedis telling him no. you can’t. 

have your audience start to agree with the dark side too, and then when they’re starting to think darth vader was fully justified pull the rug out from under them. have him go too far. it doesn’t have to be child murder, because that’s easy. that’s cheap. but have him be the direct cause of the jedi falling so easily; betraying them from afar because he knew all these people and their weaknesses and he is giving them away for one person. have obi wan and him fight with legitimate feelings; “what you’re doing is wrong” and darth vader asks why? when he has control. it’ll be better. he’ll fix it. and obi wan realizes he failed him because anakin still deals in absolutes, still deals in how slavery hit him; the people who can do anything are the ones with power. the ones who own things. is it greed? it is fear and anger and hate, and that turns to greed, sometimes. sure. 

give me a vader who drives away padme but searches for her because he wants her and his child; doesn’t she understand? she doesn’t, she can’t, she has never wanted one person to rule all. give me a padme who, like luke, still believes in anakin skywalker but who never gets the chance to say it because the rebellion is snuffed out. give me a padme who fakes losing her child so that anakin doesn’t know he has two because she can’t while he is vader. while he is under palpatine. give me a padme who dies fighting, tired and sad but still ultimately hoping for anakin to come back. to be good.

give me an anakin who thinks he’s lost everything and who hates the emperor for it but who’s given up; who lets himself be everyone’s fucking darth lapdog because what is the point? until he realizes luke is alive and then, then he thinks, he has something again. something worth fighting for. 

give me a story where i understand and nearly sympathize with anakin skywalker, where i feel for obi wan’s loss of his pupil, where i see the good luke saw in his dad from the get go but also what caused him to be so twisted. give me the start of the empire as slow and methodical, dark and the result of both sides of the force pushing and pulling instead of weird political moves that makes no sense. where i understand why padme fell in love with him and believed in him. where the jedi order meant well but was so obviously fucked up they were doomed from the start. 

give me the story these characters goddamn deserved
