Yes I do usually answer all the asks I get eventually. Sometimes I post them, sometimes I reply privately.
I do not answer back to a lot of anons though, as they are usually extremely poorly written and I sometimes cannot even understand what is trying to be said. If not on anon, I’d be able to respond privately and ask for more information.
You will get a much better chance of a reply if you’re not on anon.
I also don’t usually reply to asks that aren’t english or ones that are only one or two words long.
