what has gossip girl done to you

Hi, I'm "new" again to tumblr (logging in after being gone since 2013) and I just found out MFWP is ending, and honestly I am so upset and just need someone to process it with (no one I know plays it!), if you don't mind. MFW was my first otome game and what got me into them, and just having it suddenly end was so jarring, it was like a real break up! Just wondering, how are you dealing with it and is there anything to make it better? I'm just so sad and disappointe Voltage ended it like this!!

I’m used to this. Voltage has done this 6 times already with other party games (Be My Princess, Celebrity Darling, My Sweet Bodyguard (GREE versions), Be My Princess Party, Sleepless Cinderalla Party, Gossip Girl Party), so this isn’t surprising. I was more upset with BMPP ending than I am with MFWP. 

I felt like the event stories in MFWP had been stale for a while now and the game was so much harder than most otome games that it was chasing off casual players. I don’t think Voltage planned, at first, for there to be so much competition as there is now.

Also, Voltage’s back-to-back event schedule is brutal. They never even gave us a few days to at least recover. Also, the events started within mere hours of login turn over requiring those of us that it was the middle of the night for to have to either stay up or wake up in the middle of the night just to make sure that we could get all the bonuses. This was made even more brutal when, for an extended period of time, the final login present was a fever ticket for the following event. Missing out on that fever ticket could legit cost you the next event if you didn’t get it. Add to that the ever rising final affection amounts needed to clear routes, which, once again, made events impossible for casual players and I’m surprised that it lasted this long to be honest.

The game is taxing on me. And am I a little sad that it is ending? Of course. But I feel more relieved about this.

Once you begin to see the signs of an app failing (and voltage has some tells at this point for me), it will allow you to prepare yourself for the impact of discontinuation.

↳1.17 Woman on the Verge ♔ “Don’t send her away. I say this with all due respect, Lily, but you have no idea what your daughter’s been going through. She’s in a lot of pain and I don’t think the pain’s gonna go away if she goes away. Serena has a secret. And she’s been holding onto it for a long, long time. And now it’s finally catching up with her. I’m out of my league here. I can’t do any more than I’ve done. And it’s not enough. She needs you.”

Leighton’s one of my favorite people in the entire world. ~ He’s my favorite actor to work with.  We have really good chemistry. ~The first thing I thought when I met Leighton was, ‘Fucking hell, this girl’s gorgeous.’  And she was incredibly sweet.  Now we tell each other to fuck off whenever we want to. ~ Two thumbs up…I mean, look at her, come on. ~ Ed likes to do things for me in between takes.  Whatever I need.  He’s amazing. ~ She’s an absolute darling, she rubs my shoulders whenever I’m feeling achy onset and she’s hilarious. ~ I think I’ll be meeting Leighton for the summer before Gossip Girl starts to film again.  I need to, she’s my girl!  Chace needs to wait. ~ She’s a gorgeous girl, and she’s always great fun.  When you’re working with someone who’s as good as she is, that’s what you want to be and who you want to be involved with. ~ He’s a great kisser and that’s all I’ll say. ~ I love their relationship and I love working with Ed, which is what it probably boils down to. ~ “[Who would you turn to for advice?] Oh wow…Leighton and I have a great relationship and we’ve been able to talk to each other on different subjects again and again and again, and she’s always been a good person to confide in, so maybe her. ~ Well, I’m madly in love with Leighton, so…that’s what helps on my half.  Maybe so much that she doesn’t even have to be in love with me…I love enough; she’s mine. ~ He and I work really well together because there’s this chemistry that works off-screen as well. ~ And he’s really honestly my favorite to work with, he’s awesome.  And he’s evil. ~ We get on very well.  She’s amazing, really an incredible person.  We’ve had the privilege of having some great material together, and I couldn’t have asked to work with a better person. ~ She’s fantastic.  I’ll let you know when we finally make the sex tape!  How’s that?~ I’m very fortunate because Leighton and I have great chemistry.  I think that really lends itself because we bounce off each other really well.  Working with her doesn’t feel like a challenge.  It feels natural, so I just wade through the scenes and do what I think is right. ~ Girls just follow him.  I have a feeling Ed would do okay even if he wasn’t on a TV show. ~ Leighton looks…Blair looks fantastic in the wedding dress, it’s quite breathtaking. ~ She can handle these big, gigantic sandwiches, and she’s got the most tiny little gorgeous figure.  I don’t know, man, it certainly doesn’t work for me. ~ Leighton asked me to come down and do something [about making music together] but I think she was just joking because ah, she likes to push my buttons in that way. ~ Leighton’s great, though. I love her to bits and she’s passionate about her music thing. ~ He gets into these funny moods where he’s really silly.  Ed’s also in a band and he’s great on stage.  They played the other night, and I was yelling!  He’s really artistic and an amazing singer and dancer. ~ I like working with Leighton Meester [about his favorite GG storyline]. We have great chemistry and the two characters are a lot of fun. Whenever we’re doing scenes together, we’re always sneaking around having a laugh. ~ Ed is just incredible.  He’s got that kind of bad boy edge to him, but he has a real soft side.  I find him to be the most down to earth, cool, and sweet guy. ~ Yeah, I like kissing Leighton.  She’s so great.  Leighton is gorgeous.  I like working with her.  She’s very talented and she’s fantastic to work with. ~ Ed is such a great person to work with, always so funny but with such talent, that it makes it enjoyable to be around him. ~ He [Chace] and Leighton are out of their minds.  They’re absolutely darling people who have a great sense of humor. ~ To me it’s the same. I miss the fantastic crew we had and the cast mates, except for Ed. No, I’m just kidding. ~ Leighton plays such a good bitch because she is one.  I’m joking!  She’s so good at it because she has fun with it. ~ Leighton is a wonderful, remarkable person.  I hope she says the same about me! ~ Well, he’s one of my favorite people to act with on the show.  He’s brilliant and also as a person, he’s really great, so I think that’s why we have the chemistry. ~ I love their relationship and working with Ed is very thrilling.  The scenes with him are usually my favorites because we have a great alchemy.  Our harmony makes our relationship credible, we trust each other and aren’t afraid of going too far in the intimate scenes. ~ You can’t put a finger on what makes two characters connect.  It’s just chemistry.  We have it.  We feel it. ~ I think he’d be as amazing if he was American, but, yes, he has an added charm, because of his accent.  And he’s got the best sense of humor.  And, like me, he’s not from a big city; that’s in both our personalities.  He’s a home-town sort of guy. ~ I have a wonderful time working with Leighton, and you know, I’ve really enjoyed the work we’ve done together. ~ I'd also love to work with my Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester somewhere down the line. ~ She’s a lovely girl, and I…you know…I think she was 20 and I was 19 when we started the show and you know, it’s such an important kind of development stage of young adulthood and to grow up on the show and go through that, you know, together, I mean you’re gonna have a very strong bond.  But uh, you know, she’s a remarkable talent.  There is just…sometimes you can’t put things into words with connections or sparks when you’re acting with someone, and you know…we got the right pairing, I guess. ~ I think Leighton and I have great chemistry on-screen, so you know, that helps…but, yeah, no, they’re just great individually and when put together, they’re even better. ~ Ed is extremely charismatic and comfortable in his own skin.  But he’s also very vulnerable, which translates into his work and makes an otherwise obnoxious character like Chuck so accessible to audiences. ~ I have, [visited Chace & Ed’s house] and I’m just telling you, the minute you walk in, you can tell boys were living in there! ~ Leighton and I have kissed, and I’ve banged into her teeth.  I think that hurt her a little bit.  I was clumsy! ~ Leighton’s quite fun.  She’s got a sense of humor where it’s like you and her have a little gig going, and it’s very personal. ~ My favorite part about working with Leighton is that she’s a really funny character.  She has a great time and is an absolute sweetheart. ~ It’s not my life.  I love her.  I think she’s fantastic, and she’s a good friend of mine.  And whatever she does, I wish her all the best. ~ Oh, I love him!  We have so much fun when we are shooting together.  ~ Leighton is an incredible talent so she makes my job easy. ~ She is a wonderful girl and a remarkable person and we hang out when we’re both not working. ~ I’m glad that I get to be here with Ed and have fun. ~ I love him and respect him so much.

What do you miss most about Gossip Girl?

Ed: Each other.

Leighton: That’s a good answer.  Let’s just leave it at that.

Lol kc a bad actor? Really? Then how come she won an actual award for acting? How come, with the exception of JB and Willa for the most part, she's the only on thag show that have a NOTABLE and longer career then anyone else on the show? If KC and SA had no Chem and lauriver was shit, how come the show didn't get cancelled when it was going in that direction? In fact it had higher ratings. Lol you and your follows clearly just choose not to see facts.

Normally, I don’t engage with hate, but I am aware of and recognize all of these facts, and I still very much maintain my opinion.

Sometimes we fight for something only to discover that by the time we get it our goals have changed. For some, it’s too late. The lines have been drawn. And the damage has been done. But other times you get the thing you always wanted. Only to find out it isn’t what you really need. Get ready kids, I’m back. And this time I’m here to stay.

Birthday Blues. - Joe Sugg Imagine.

It was your boyfriend Joe’s birthday and you had a lot planned for the day, and quite a lot of surprises up your sleeves. You turned on your side only to face an empty bed, before you laughed quietly hearing Joe singing his lungs out in the shower. You slowly rose from the bed and made it nice and neat, fluffing the pillows after smoothing out the duvet before you made your way upstairs. Now since it was Joe’s twenty fourth birthday, you thought you should make it special, so you had planned a very exciting day, but here’s the best bit, you planned an exciting day without Joe. That’s right, Joe wasn’t going to be celebrating his birthday with you, his girlfriend of two years. He was going to be spending it with Caspar. Why? Well that’s the surprise that you had planned.

As you smirked at your thoughts, you listened to Joe running up the stairs rather quickly. He slid his way across the wooden floor in his socks, fully dressed with his hair styled in nice neat quiff, smiling sweetly at you. “Good morning gorgeous..” He beamed, kissing you on the lips in the process. He looked around the kitchen, not seeing you whipping up a birthday breakfast like you did year prior and promised to do again this year. “Morning..” You smiled, chewing on your cereal casually, knowing exactly what he was looking for, but he wouldn’t say. “You’re up early, aren’t you?” You questioned him as he peered over your shoulder, double checking that there wasn’t a birthday breakfast being whipped up. Joe’s eyes slowly turned back to yours and he gave you a small nod and a wide grin. “Well, I guess I’m just excited..” Joe explained, the smile still evident on his lips, his fingers drumming on the counter top in a quick rhythm. You watched his eyes scan around for some sort of indication that you did remember his birthday, like a card, a present or even a ballon and a banner but you had nothing. It was so cruel to do this, but it would be so worth it in the end. You purposely didn’t leave him a card, or whip him up a birthday buffet because you wanted him to think that you forgot about his birthday.

“Excited for what?” You asked acting confused, finishing up your breakfast and bringing your bowl to the sink to wash up. You watched Joe’s facial features as his wide smile turned into a small frown and his brow furrow together. He parted his lips to speak but Caspar, who was also in on your little plan, got to him before he could speak. “Hey man! I’ve gotta go get a new card for my camera..Would you mind going with me to get it? It’s a bit of a long ride..We could maybe catch a film too?” Caspar grinned at you both, standing by the kitchen island and you watched Joe look back to you but you showed no emotion and made sure you didn’t give anything away. Joe sighed, scratching the back of his neck and nodding, a small hopeful look on his face that his best friend Caspar would remember such a special date. “Cool man! Let’s go!” Caspar smiled, not even mentioning the fact that it was Joe’s birthday as he grabbed his wallet and took hold of his keys. You bit the inside of your cheek, biting back a laugh and a smile seeing Joe’s shoulders fall and a deeper frown grow on his face, as he nodded at Caspar. Joe turned to face you and you peeked over to Caspar as he gave you a wink, a secret code you both decided on to agree that the plan was ready and in motion to go with.

“Will you be alright babe?” Joe asked, walking to you as he shrugged his coat on his shoulders, giving you one last hopeful look, hoping that you’ll even remember that today was his birthday. You softly pecked his cheek and smiled, brushing him off. “Oh, I’ll be fine! Don’t worry about me..You better get going, don’t leave Caspar waiting too long..” You answered, keeping your cool as you stood from your seat and watched Joe frown. “Erh, yeah..yeah, yeah, cool..okay..I’ll see you when we get back?” Joe asked, completely deflated as he walked backwards towards the door. You nodded flashing him a small smile and waving him off as he stumped off with a frown and closed the door.


As soon as the door closed shut, you couldn’t contain the growing smile and the giggles that escaped you. You ran over to Caspar’s desk where he had a locked drawer, where Joe knew that Caspar kept many private pieces in lock down, and it was one of the most perfect hiding places for what you were about to pull out. Caspar allowed you to use the drawer and loaned you the key, after you unlocked the drawer, you pulled out the banners you had personally made for Joe’s birthday which read “HAPPY 24th BIRTHDAY JOE” along with his birthday card you had wrote up ages ago. You set them on the kitchen counter and quickly hoovered the flat and cleaned up some things whilst you waited for the arrival of yours and Joe’s friends. You had planned a big surprise party for Joe and he definitely hadn’t suspected a thing.

You heard many knocks on the door and you smiled excitedly rushing to answer it. You opened the door to reveal Zoe, Tanya, Niomi, Louise, Marcus, Oli, Alfie, Dan and Phil, Jim and many of Joe’s friends from college and his hometown. You allowed them all in and gave each and every single one of them a long, large hug. You told the girls to put their party outfits downstairs in Caspar’s bedroom since Joe’s room was going to be in use later and the guys were already dressed for the party which made you laugh. Tanya brought the many balloons you had placed an order in for and Zoe had made a three layered, butter creamed icing cake with Joe’s name written in blue icing on top, decorated with sprinkles along the sides. Marcus and Niomi brought the platters of food you ordered from Joe’s favourite restaurant and laid them out on the table.


Together you had all joined together and helped to turn Joe and Caspar’s flat into party mode. You had stuck the banners to the walls and placed balloons in every corner and on the dining table. You had stacked all the presents everyone bought Joe on the coffee table and you had cocktails and alcoholic drinks poured out in glasses and ready for Joe and Caspar’s arrival. After getting the flat ready and decorated, it was now time that you and the girls got ready. You all rushed down the stairs and into Caspar’s room with your make up and hair styling gadgets. You and the girls entered Caspar’s bedroom, giggling and gossiping about the night ahead as Tanya began to get started on your makeup.

“He’s going to be so shocked! I don’t think anyone has ever done this for him!” Zoe smiled, laughing as she blended her foundation into her skin. “What was he like this morning Y/N?” Niomi asked you and you giggled as Tanya picked up a new brush for your eyeshadow. “He didn’t say anything, but he was looking for a card or something to show that I remembered his birthday and he was quite disappointed..He had a case of the birthday blues..” You laughed and smiled as the girls cooed and giggled. “He was expecting Caspar to say something but I told Caspar not to give in and to keep his mouth shut..” You giggled, knowing Caspar was one of the worst people you could tell a secret to since he couldn’t exactly keep a secret for more than two minutes, but you somehow managed to coax him into doing this for you. “I felt so bad when I saw his face just drop..but this party will definitely make up for it..” You grinned at the thought knowing you’ve been planning this party since the beginning of August and you’ve been so excited to see Joe’s face when you surprise him tonight.

After Tanya finished your make up look, you slipped away from Caspar’s room and into Joe’s where you had your outfit laid out in the wardrobe after Joe left this morning. Tonight you were wearing a carlita sweetheart bandeau white wide leg jump suit and a pair of white heels. Your hair was curled loosely and fell down over your shoulders. Your eyelids were a soft shimmering, light gold colour and your lips would shame a red rose. You walked back into the room full of girls in their new party outfits and their jaws dropped at the sight of you. “Y/N..you..wow..You look stunning!” Louise gasped at you as all of the girls quickly nodded and agreed with Louise’s words making you blush and smile. “Thank you girls..but look at all of you! You all look gorgeous!” You beamed at all of the girls who were dressed in skirts, dresses, crop tops and party jeans. They all looked incredible.

After taking many selfies and giggling about Joe’s reactions, you received a text from Caspar saying they were ten minutes away, so you all raced upstairs and gathered by the door and turned the lights out, making sure you were all ready with party poppers and streamers. After waiting for five minutes, you listened to keys dangle in the key hold and you held your breath in excitement as you heard Jim click record on his phone to film Joe’s reactions to the surprise birthday party.

“What? Why are the lights out? Y/N must have gone back to her flat..” Your heard Joe murmur and let out a sad sigh and reach out for the light switch. As soon as the lights flickered on, you watched Joe stumble back as you all exploded loudly with happiness, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOE!” You beamed and blew party horns and popped the streamers as Joe’s eyes widened at the sight of everything and everyone, before his eyes landed on you and his smile grew widely, his face turning red as music began to play loudly. Everyone gathered around Joe and wished him a happy birthday, giving him birthday bashes and hugs as you began to pour the drinks and leave them on the counter top for the guests to take. You grinned as Joe was being whisked away by all of his friends to open presents and have a couple of drinks.

Two hours have passed and you haven’t seen Joe once. Joe was chatting with the guys and having fun opening presents, which you still had to give to him, but decided to wait until a little bit later. Right now you were lighting the candles on Joe’s cake and you had dimmed the lights down a tad bit to create an exciting atmosphere. As soon as Joe saw you, his eyes lit up and you smiled standing beside him as everyone began to sing happy birthday and you could feel your heart swell up with happiness at Joe’s happiness. Once Joe blew out the candles making a wish, everyone cheered and his arm wrapped around your waist, pulling you into his side and kissing you softly and slowly as everyone took pictures and whistled making you blush. “Happy birthday babe..I love you..” You whispered kissing his cheek as Joe grinned widely at you and kissed your lips once more gently before you shuffled away with cake as the guests passed more presents to Joe to open, whilst you and the girls scurried off to the kitchen to the let Zoe and Alfie chat with Joe, yourself and the girls began to organise the plates for the cutting of the cake, making sure that everyone got a slice and that the birthday boy got a slice that was just a teeny, tiny, winy bit bigger.


The night had passed and the guests had just left and Joe was currently upstairs locking the flat up whilst you were downstairs with Joe’s presents. “Y/N, love?” Joe asked walking downstairs where you were currently sat on his bed with a gift bag full of presents that were waiting for Joe’s hands to open them. “Yes?” You smiled seeing him walk into the room and take a seat beside you. “I just want to say..thank you so much for tonight..” Joe smiled widely at you, kissing your cheek tenderly and you smirked tsking him. “The nights is only getting started..I’ve still got to give you your presents..” You answered him, placing his gift bag with neatly wrapped gifts inside it onto his lap. “You do know you didn’t have to get me anything..and you certainly didn’t have to throw me a party..” Joe spoke quietly as you stood and locked his bed room door and laughed at his words and smiled rolling your eyes playfully at your boyfriend. “I wanted to Joe..You don’t have to thank me..Now open your presents!” You beamed at Joe as he began to take out his presents and unwrap them excitedly.

This year you wanted to go all out for Joe’s birthday and had gotten Joe a pair of tickets to the next big football match in Wembley stadium with the best seats in the house, a pair of concert tickets to the Foo Fighters, one of his childhood favourite bands, a new pair of jet black runners and white stripes that he’s been eyeing up recently along with a new vlogging camera that he was saving up to buy himself for Christmas. You had also bought him a couple of snapbacks since he’s been loving them recently and a set of his favourite colognes, or should you say, more so your favourite colognes on him.

“Y/N..this is way too much..” Joe said, gasping at how many things you had bought for him but smiled gratefully at each one, inspecting each present with love and care, the smile on his face only widening with each present as he dropped in shock at almost every one making you laugh as he pulled you closely and began to pepper your face with gentle kisses. “I love you. You’re the best and I’m so lucky to have an amazing girlfriend..” Joe mumbled against your skin as he kissed all over your face and wrapped his strong arms around your frame and hugged you closely against his chest, thanking you for everything. “I love you too, you big goofball..” You smiled hitting his chest playfully, changing out of your party wear and into your comfortable pyjamas.

“You know..I really did think you forgot about my birthday..” Joe chuckled at himself, peeling off his shirt and changing into a pair of joggers and slipping under the covers beside you, pulling you closely into him, keeping the bedside lamp on for you both as you turned in his arms to face him and smiled at him. “Well that was sort of the plan…” You teased him, pecking his jaw lightly feeling his hands fall down to the small of your back where his fingers danced around the waist band of your bottoms. “I’d never forget your birthday Joe..and I didn’t mean to be mean earlier about it either..I just really wanted to surprise you..” You explained, rubbing his muscled arm softly and listened to a chuckle escape Joe’s lips before his hands began to travel deeper down your pyjamas bottoms, making your heart rate increase rapidly.

“You know..I think you could make up for that..” Joe spoke deeply, his frame suddenly flipping over on top of you and hovering over your body as his hands began to now slip under your t-shirt and his fingers trail up your chest slowly, a small smirk playing at your lips as you fluttered eyelashes innocently. “Oh, is that so? What would you like me to do Sugg?” You asked, your hands running up his arms and to his shoulders, before your hands soon tangled in his hair. Joe’s face nestled itself comfortably into the crook of your neck, breathing in the sweet perfume you had spritzed on yourself this evening before his lips grazed up your neck slowly before he pulled back teasingly and leaned close to your ear and growled sexily.

“Well for starters, you won’t be needing these..” He spoke, yanking down your pyjama bottoms and throwing them to the floor.

Joe certainly didn’t have the case of the birthday blues after that night.
