Reddit may be well-known for a lot of unpleasant things, but it is also a repository for some of the most delightful and insightful stories and peeks into the lives of other people, mostly in the form of AITA (Am I The Asshole) and relationship advice posts. These usually begin with the poster describing some horrifying/hilarious situation that they're having with their partner, then everyone shares it on social media, the end.
Since developer ConcernedApe is working on Haunted Chocolatier, the Stardew Valley subreddit hasn't had much news to talk about, so instead they're amusing themselves with fake AITA posts... and I keep falling for them. I keep believing they're genuine, and that someone is going to be in a horrible relationship that involves way too many chickens, alcoholism, and staying up late mining every night!
My first playthrough of Stardew Valley was when I married Leah, a shy artist who had a terrible ex. She's quiet and mostly keeps to herself; the most significant thing that happened in our relationship was probably me not having to display all of my statues.
Sebastian, a guy in his 20s, acts like a goth teen in his second playthrough. He stays in his locked basement bedroom for the majority of the day, only coming out once.
This means that wooing Seb often involves standing right outside his locked door, every single day, until you've given him enough eggs to allow him to unlock his bedroom door permanently. If you did that in real life, you'd be arrested.
If there's a reference to "Joja" or "farming" in the first few sentences, I can probably guess they're about a video game and not real life. But the ones that keep it vague and stick to the tone of a real AITA post? They get me almost every time.
AITA for basically stalking the guy I liked until he agreed to marry me, is it really?
