Our replies to your ask.fm questions!
Hey, guys! Since Casey is in the shower right now, I’m going to be sneaky and take the questions this time. So instead of my comments being in my signature blue, they’re just going to be…normal. 😛
Remember, you can ask us for advice at our ask.fm page! In fact, we’d really love you if you did. 😉
Casey: Man Marina how dare you steal my thunder! So I will be writing in green since Marina is writing normal.
Marina: And for those of you on the WP Reader who can’t see colors, I’ve added Casey’s name to the stuff she’s said. 😛
How do you make friends?
Do you mean me personally? Well, I guess I’m fairly outgoing, so I just go up to someone and introduce myself, maybe ask what the other person is doing and/or if I can join in if it’s something that multiple people can do. It’s the same thing for me online, more or less (though I honestly find Fantage a bit daunting to make friends in since there’re so many people there…). Just don’t be afraid to approach people and get to know them a little bit!
Casey: You can make friends in many different ways. If it’s in real life, I highly suggest talking to people you see alone or the new kids in school. Online, I suggest just trying to talk to people who seem friendly or like to make people laugh and make people happy.
Have you made any new friends in the blogging world?
Do you mean in general or since the last advice post? In general, I’ve met almost all of my friends I talk to regularly through FTWP. ;D
Casey: Not really no, I tend to keep to myself though. I am willing to engage if others talk to me first, but I will usually not be the one to instigate a conversation.
What do you guys have in common? 🙂 – Hannah again
Well, as far as I know, we all have similar personalities. Anna and I also like a lot of the same games (Tomodachi Life is one example). All four of us like anime, but our tastes vary since “anime” means so many different kinds of shows these days. Uh…our opinions on certain things are usually similar, I think? 😛
Casey: Marina and I are basically twins. All four of us have the same humor. I am not sure what else we have in common though.
Who is Fantage Confessions?
We don’t know.
Why is your name FantageMarianna but not a name with all your names combined?
When we created this blog (during all of the Rop drama), it was just Anna and me. Casey and Nunnally didn’t join in until a little later. By the time they did join, we’d already picked out a name. 😛
Do you like music?
Not as much as other people, but yeah! My tastes in music are a little weird, though. 😆
Casey: Love it. A little more than is healthy I suppose. I have to clean out my iPod every few weeks to stay below 800 songs. ;-; I love a bunch of genres, I am sure everyone knows that I do enjoy kpop, I like jpop/jrock, post-core, electronic, alternative, screamo. Etc. The list just keeps going. I have also been to about 24 concerts (I lost track) and own more than 40 band shirts. I have a bit of a problem when it comes to music. My favorite bands are Day6, Ghost Town, and Pierce The Veil.

How do I make friends in the blogging community? I feel like everyone has their own squad and stuff and I don’t want to intrude
Honestly, to make some friends in any situation you’re going to have to intrude at least slightly. If you see a post someone made that you want to talk to, don’t be afraid to comment on it. You don’t have to jump into the middle of someone’s conversation just leave a kind comment or something similar. Even though everyone on here does seem to have their own squad, most people are willing and open to the idea of gaining more friendships. Just take a chance! If they get mad at you, they obviously weren’t worth a second of your time. I hope this helped. ❤
I’ve been friends with this person for a long time, but lately it feels like we can’t agree on anything and that we have nothing in common. I want to keep being friends, but I feel like we’re growing apart… What should I do?
It’s normal to grow apart from a friend no matter how long you guys have been together. You don’t exactly need to be best friends anymore, you can be friendly acquaintances and such. When friendships grow apart, there is nothing you really can do. It’s better to let the drift happen instead of trying to pull the two of you close together. If you do that, it will only end in a completely fractured friendship, because when a split starts occurring it might be caused by someone or both friends finding who they are and who they are might not be the person they once were. You guys are still growing and nothing lasts forever, the important parts are the memories you guys have made together as well as the laughs and good times. Just let the drift happen and see what life brings you next. I hope this helped. ❤
I am trying to wait for at least three each time but these are both long so I thought might as well. Keep sending in asks here! Sorry I keep taking all the questions, I am just so excited about it! xD Please be on the look out for old advice posts because the other admins might add their sides to different questions. Check the last post to see Marina’s side.
Marina: I’ll be adding my comments if I have anything to say that Casey hasn’t already covered!
How can I make myself put trust in my friends again? A few years ago, my best friend told a secret of mine to the whole grade and everybody still knows it to this day, although they rarely tease me about it anymore… they teased me before, though. I have this secret built up in me (I’ve had it for a year or two now) and I just really want to get it off of my chest and tell one of my friends and maybe they could help me with my problems, but I have a fear it’ll get out again and I’ll suffer… What can I do?
First of all, a true friend wouldn’t do that. But, if you are at a younger age things like this are bound to happen. A lot. It is hard to trust someone and you may never fully be able to trust the same person again, but you shouldn’t be afraid to tell your friends if something bothers you. That is when you find out if they are real friends or not. I suggest telling them and seeing how they react, if it gets out again there is really nothing you can do but remember that school is temporary and so is this issue. After you graduate, it is likely you’ll never see those people again so don’t stress about the negativity. Just be open and honest with them and determine if they are really your friend or not. Also, if this friend has some something similar with other people and/or treated you badly another time in the past, chances are she isn’t really your friend and she won’t ever change. I hope this helped! ❤
I’m a little uncomfortable around people who cuss. I’ve asked my mom how to deal with this and she says to be straightforward and tell a person, “If you’re my friend, don’t say those words around me,” but I’m afraid that’s too strong of a confession. I don’t care that it’s “cool” to cuss with some people and that I’d get hated for, say, telling on a person using strong language, but how do I smoothly get some of my friends not to use profanity around me? It may not even have to be verbally; what do I do?
Hi Hannah. xD
Marina: Hey, Hannah! 🙂
Why did you make this account? –
Marina: I wasn’t online for this, but apparently it was to counteract some of the other negativity going around. And, y’know, Casey likes giving people advice. 😉
Omg Marina! XD Yes, I do love to give people advice. It was actually a mix of my idea and Jared’s idea, I want to counter negative energy by bringing in some positive energy.
