Thank you so much for asking for this tier. And thank you for showing me the best ways to use Patreon! You are generous in your contribution and also in your encouragement. Here's to a bright future of me doing fun things on Patreon, one tier-tweak at a time.

My Twitter, Unhacked
$20 or more per month 17 patrons
Someone in Singapore hacked my Twitter account, and Twitter has lost all my tweets. This has been going on for two months - a lot of moping time for me - but now I'm going be a glass-half-full girl and make a new and improved Twitter feed on Patreon. Going forward, you can only see my tweets here. Should we still call them tweets if they're on Patreon? I don't know how this will work technically. But Melissa does.
Monthly Video Chats with Me and Melissa
$35 or more per month 18 patrons
I have no idea what we'll talk about, but whatever we talk about, we'll talk about it with you. You can chat with us in text. We'll make two videos a month. I will make sure to wear two different outfits to look like I am high-functioning. Melissa will be audio-only, because a girl's gotta get paid to put on makeup and I'm keeping all the money. (Plus all the above benefits.)
Postcards from Penelope
$50 or more per month 6 patrons
I bought tons of midcentury modern postcards to send to Melissa. I sent her one a week for a while. And then I just sent her a postcard every time we had a fight. Which is almost once a month, but not quite. So it's time to bring more people into the fold. You'll receive a postcard every month from me. Maybe next year you can choose to receive a fight from me once a month instead. And you know my fights are good, because look, Melissa is still my best friend. (Plus all the above benefits.)
Play the Pick-a-Topic Game
$275 or more per month 2 patrons
You can send me a topic or link once a month. I'll include that  in the next post I write. Hopefully you'll come up with fun, inventive stuff I'd never have thought of myself. However I've priced this game so if all the people who play are actually buying links for SEO purposes, I won't feel like I should have charged more. (Plus all the above benefits.)
Parental Forgiveness
$8,000 or more per month 0 patrons
If either of my parents buys this, I will unblock them on my phone.
Goals
163 of 250 patrons
I'll be able to pay for an assistant who can make sure my day-to-day life runs smoothly. Or runs at all. Without an assistant, Asperger's gets in the way. Things start to fall apart. The assistant's first job will be to manage the Patreon funds.
