  1. You know this is not that bad…I mean I come from Wattpad and I feel like throwing up the next time I read another ‘mysterious hot technically abusive guy likes mary sue’ story.

    Oh wait none of those writers have parents throwing money at them.

  2. What’s with the evil spider before the glitter tree? I don’t remember that from the sporking.
