this app will be my downfall

HEY so I’ve done some research on the Wish app and have some good news! Okay, so, a lot of people don’t want to use Wish because it looks too good to be true and they’re afraid they’re going to get scammed, HOWEVER. I have ordered about 20 (small, cheap (just in case)) things off of the site and so far everything has come early or on time! Another complaint I used to see is that Wish didn’t have any sort of consumer protection if the customer got scammed by a shop, which appears to no longer be the case, as they openly advertise they have consumer protection now. I haven’t had to deal with their customer service yet though, as everything has come. ALSO! They’re doing a sale right now where certain (mostly small things, jewelry, cosmetics, etc.) are free, and you just have to pay shipping (usually $2 - $4). There are also certain stores that are verified by Wish, and so there’s that extra layer of reassurance, and some stores offer speedy delivery. Most products I’ve gotten come from China, so shipping times can take 3-4 weeks, which in my opinion is the greatest downfall. Also, their products (predictably) are usually kinda cheaply made, which I would expect for an app that sells things at such a low price, which is why I haven’t ordered any clothes from them yet (but a lot of stores sell clothes up to 6X!!). So far I’ve gotten patches for my jacket (all good quality), a fidget cube (average quality, still durable) camera lenses for my iPhone (good quality), a phone case (average quality), a wall mount necklace rack (average quality, sometimes has troubles sticking to the wall) and an enamel pin (good quality).

In all, this is an app I would recommend.

What do you mean by more under the cut? I never find a link to continue reading or anything and I'm always so hooked on your writing but then I can't continue it!

The links don’t show in the mobile app.

You have to go onto Safari or Chrome, or whatever browser you use on your tablet or phone or mobile device, and go to the Tumblr site. I put the (more under the cut) so readers know that there’s a continuation on whatever ask response I posted. You can use the mobile site in a trimmed-down way like the desktop, so you can look through my tags if you’re hunting for a ship.

The Tumblr app has its perks, but this is one annoying downfall.

How much of the "blame" for Anne Boleyn's downfall do you think lies with Thomas Cromwell? I know Henry was the guiding force behind the events of April and May 1536, but how much of Cromwell's hand was also involved in the proceedings?

I just found this in an odd place (I use Tumblr via the app) and I don’t know if I ever answered it. Did I?

Oh, well; fear of contradicting myself has never scared me away from blathering on, so I might as well answer.

In my opinion Henry wanted Anne - the failure, the woman who’d let him down, the witch - gone, and he wanted her dead so that nobody could say his marriage to Jane was false. He didn’t want to make that same “mistake” again. He was behind the plot; he chose for Anne to die.

Cranmer handled the details, and *he* was the one who chose which men would fall with Anne and why.

Harry Norris he chose because of the “dead man’s shoes” comment, which gave him the opening he was waiting for.
George Boleyn he chose because although an impotent man might fail to satisfy his wife and send her into the arms of another, no man no matter how virile could protect himself against a wanton who would lay with her own brother.
Francis Weston he chose because Anne worried about him aloud during the first days of her incarceration.
Mark Smeaton he chose to again blacken Anne’s name as a woman who would have sex with a servant.
William Brereton he chose just to get rid of him; he had too much power in Cheshire and North Wales.

Hi. I was wondering. I struggle, a lot, with editing photos. I can never make them match or look right. I always over do it or not enough or too much with exposure or saturation or something. How do you edit your photos? And how do you know when is just right, like how not to over do or under do it? And make them match? Lovely content, hope you have a lovely day!!!

hello lovely!! i use an app called preview to see if my photos are cohesive before uploading. basically, it allows you to preview your feed as it mimics an ig feed. the only downfall is that you have to upload the photos manually, but imo it’s not that bad considering you get unlimited previews (unlike in planoly, which only gives you a set amount of previews unless you pay to upgrade your account). hope that helps and have a wonderful day!!

Unpopular Opinion #101

I have seen some posts on Tumblr that are highly disturbing and I’m here to post what I feel about it. This is a super long post but I refuse to cut it because I want everyone to be able to see it. For this, I sincerely apologize for clogging your dash. I’m condensing it all into one post and before I start, no I do not feel a need to tag anyone because those posts have been going around. Besides, why do I even need to bother tagging when people hide behind anon and send hate via otome confessions? Let us all have a taste of finding out that people said bad stuff about you without being tagged.

Before I start, I want to say that I call Voltage out on their crap if they have any. These include how poorly handled their recent Ikemen poll was handled and how they have poor translation in some apps. HOWEVER I also know when the fandom is the one being unreasonable.

Yes, some of the voiced stories are voiced for a limited period. But these subs only cost a fraction of what actual full stories do. Plus whenever that app has campaigns, usually the voice will return and will stay for as long as the campaign lasts. An actual full permanently voiced story is expensive. It’s more than double the amount for the short permanent voiced stories AND the temporarily voiced stories. There are more of such stories in the Japanese apps, but we have them in SCM English. Ironic that for all the whining people make about not having a permanent voiced story, when Because I Adore You came out people complained about how expensive it is and refuse to buy it because of the price. Also when Eisuke was voiced by an English Voice Actor, many were quick to spread hate about how poorly it was voiced and that they rather have it voiced in Japanese. Seiyuu is not cheap, they are expensive. If you rather have cheaper permanent voiced stories, you can purchase the shorter ones in the newer apps. Sadly, people also complain about how short it is despite the price they are retailing at.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Voltage will of course only release voice characters who are popular because why pay so much to hire seiyuu only to release an unpopular character and they cannot even break even with the amount spent making the sub? Of course, you can - again - settle for the cheaper & shorter stories where all the guys have a sub. 

As for the sub stories and how they have been split so that Voltage can earn money: Yes, it’s annoying but it is a move that has pros and cons. Voltage will have more cash rolling in BUT the old format where multiple people are condensed into one has its downfalls too. Personally I find it very troublesome to always have to go through the prologue everytime I start on a new character before I can choose who to read. I sometimes also do not enjoy reading characters that I don’t like, though I will still read it to make my money worth it. There are, however, newer apps with such sub stories (where multiple guys are inside) and they usually cost the same amount as a main story. Of course there are other factors in some subs that make the high price more justifiable: some sub stories have new backgrounds and outfits for the men. Again, it is unfortunate that many fail to see this point. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s not always about just the length of the story: it’s also the cost of making that story.

I have made posts talking about how poorly handled this current election was yet it somehow seems like it’s never enough. =_= I see people complaining about length of stories, why did Voltage split the men up blah blah blah it is so unfair! Say all you want, but even those arguments are NOT fair enough. You know what is fair? To have these stories released for free in Sweet Cafe. These election stories are all stories in 恋 Cafe where you can obtain them using tickets. The men are split up for obvious reasons because stories in Sweet/恋 Cafe are for individuals; they do not have a few men condensed in one story. Instead of fighting for “fair” stories, why not fight for the actual fair thing and get the stories in Sweet Cafe?

About the ridiculous theory that this election theme is Star Festival because they want Scorpio to win… Do you actually realize what you are saying? It’s Star Festival because this election happened near the Tanabata Festival. Are you trying to tell me that for generations, people in Japan have been celebrating Tanabata so that one day in the distant future, a fictional character created by a future company called Voltage will win another fictional character in a popularity poll? (ノ-_-)ノ ~┻━┻  And if anything, Voltage wants Eisuke to win, not Scorpio. Did you see how many special SOS messages he (and KBTBB) received? I’m not going to touch on the rest regarding this election because I think I have made enough posts talking about it and how I feel it is unfair. 

You want more voiced stories, more crossover stories, better images blah blah blah but I want you to ask yourself: does your action justify what you are actually asking from them? How many actually buy ALL of such stories? Everything costs money. And they follow heavily whatever is available in Japanese. If it is not, they sometimes hire other writers to come up with English Exclusives. Do NOT even let me start on how poorly handled these English Exclusives usually are as compared to what the Japanese Writers dish out. I know not many agree with me on this but this is what I feel. As for more voiced stories, please refer back to my first point. If you are willing to pay that huge amount then fine, if not please stop asking for it. On the topic of better special images, I think the International fandom needs to think long and hard about WHY we are getting such lame special images while the Japanese get better ones. The answer is rather clear if you take a step back and look at the fandom as a whole without prejudice. 

As for the the people mocking others for calling MC “mc-chan” because “why are you calling her main character-chan? ꉂ(σ▰˃̶̀ꇴ˂̶́)σ”. Well… There is absolutely nothing wrong with this. In Japanese they call her heroine-san. Should we be more accurate then and call her [USER_FIRST_NAME]-chan? Mocking others on such trivial matters does NOT make you smarter or more “well informed” whatsoever. Instead why don’t you comment about how horrible translations are for some apps, especially SLBP and BMPP? How words like  “whore”, “bitch” and “slut” are used everywhere and the game actually got so offensive people decided to either skip the routes or stop playing the app altogether. These also includes big players, which speaks volumes because big players usually overlook as much as possible while continuing to spend a lot on the app thus enabling the app to survive and makes it possible for Voltage to continue translating events. So instead of laughing at such trivial matters, please fight for how お前 (a form of “you”) got translated to become a whore. How a manipulative person also suddenly got translated to be a “son of a bitch bred whore”. How someone who talks to a few guys suddenly become a “bitch”. And how they actually degraded concubines into whores. FYI, till today there are countries that allow men to have more than 1 wife. Are you implying that from wife #2 onwards, everyone is a whore? 

This fandom sure is hard to please. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
