Anonymous asked: I can't stand how thelivingwiccan is begging for money for a tarot deck. It's kinda neat, but it's NOT worth the price she's trying to put on it. Please stop begging for money, you're not going to get it, and I really hate seeing her posts blowing up my dash.
They are not begging for money, they are trying to fulfill their dream of publishing something into the world. I think they will get it, that they will fulfill their dream. If you don’t like it blowing up your dash, ask them nicely to tag it. So you can tumblr savior it or whatever you use.
It’s not worth the price she’s putting on it? As an artist, I think it is. Do you know how much hard work goes into creating something like that all by yourself? The blood, sweat, and tears and labor of creating something. The time and energy. Whatever they are asking for it, it fucking worth it. Artists don’t work for free, if you are good at something never do it for free.
If I had money I would totally give them some. I hope that get that tarot deck out there. There needs to be more pagan artists doing stuff like that.
thelivingwiccan I hope you succeed, and create this tarot deck. Good luck.
Aw, this isn’t a very nice thing to say! Usually I try to stay out of things like this, and be nice. But I have medical entrance exams to study for this week. And I’m a little bit stressed.
Thanks, little-hylian-witch for the support.
To the original poster: if you’re worried about it “blowing up” your dash, I’ve already tagged every single kickstarter post with multiple tags that you can easily blacklist. You haven’t had to look at them this whole time, you know. Here are some of the tags you can blacklst:
- sigil warning
- tw: sigil
- cw: sigil
Not to mention you can alsoblacklist:
- tarot/divination/fortune telling
As I post the Sigilic Tarot in those tags too. So there’s no reason you have to look at it if you don’t want to. I’m considerate like that.
Sorry to hear you don’t think my deck is worth the price I’m asking. As for the price: I’ve already answered that here: Why does it cost $12,000 to make this deck? And believe me, this is actually one of the least expensive decks that have been funded by kickstarter. The Light visions Tarot raised $25,000, and The Wooden Tarot is currently at $17,000 with 9 days left. Not to mention the other $15,000 it raised during its firstkickstarter.
Honestly, though, with only 6 days to go, it doesn’t look like it’s going to get made in the first place, so you needn’t worry about that much longer.
My sincerest apologies for your need to anonymously say that I’m begging for money which most likely stems from a deficiency in self-esteem and a lack of your own projects to be proud of. And on a blog called Pagan Confessional, no less (those blogs always end badly). You can kindly unfollow me and refrain from sending me any questions, whoever you are.
And I’d love to see any self-produced project you manage to turn out in the future. Try doing it on top of being a full time pre-medical student.
Goddamned grey faced coward. So rarely am I driven to make a comment to an anon.
I paid the price for the deck because I want TLW to make their dream come true because the idea is beautiful. I would hope that someone would extend the same support for me someday. And I think it’s worth the money.
And you know what else? Raising your opinion without using your name doesn’t really validate your perspective anyway because even if someone agreed with you, you don’t get credit for saying it first. Congratulations, you just embarrassed yourself.
