What she says: I'm fine
What she really means: Buy me everything in the Welcome to Night Vale store
If a wizard watched Doctor Who and the Weeping Angels became their worst fear then they came across a Boggart and it changed into an Angel, and since whatever takes the image of an Angel becomes itself an Angel, would that bring Angels into existence in the Harry Potter universe?
Okay this messed with me majorly
First off, I didn’t write whatever that was you quoted in your ask.
Second, Pentatonix does use the money from Patreon to make content for everyone. The money has gone toward new mics for recording their new albums, equipment for their music videos, and a lot of other neat stuff. Without Patrons, they wouldn’t be able to afford the level of professionalism toward which they are striving. Maybe that doesn’t matter to you, but it obviously does to them, or they wouldn’t bother.
The stuff that Patrons get, on the other hand? That’s all free. Besides the posters, Patron exclusives are just pictures and short videos, which are made at no cost to Pentatonix. They are taking time out of their busy schedules to do stuff like the Pompeii Speed-Arrangement, and the Spreecasts, because they want to thank their Patrons.
Their message is basically: Hey Patrons! Thank you so much for helping us reach our goals! Your money is going toward some pretty neat stuff that we can’t wait to share with everybody. In the mean time, we’d like to show you how grateful we are by offering some rewards while you wait for our music to come out. Thank you so much!
That’s why so many of the Patrons, myself included, are in such a “fuss” about non-Patrons seeing Patron-intended content. Our money is going toward content for every Pentaholic. The stuff we get in return is like a thank-you gift from Pentatonix. They are thanking their Patrons, not everybody else. That’s why their posts and videos such as the Pompeii one start with “Hey Patrons!”
