Journal Entry: Thu Mar 7, 2013, 5:32 AM
To the people who are constantly stressing me out,
Let's just list all this shit out.
-I don't give a fuck if you don't like them and feel the need to be a prick about how you don't like them. I can't please everyone, as much as I would LOVE to, it's just not fucking possible.
-I don't give a damn if you have design suggestions for designs that are both a) already up for sale and b) not customs for you.
-I'm in no way pretending that I am by any means the best, or even good at what I do, but regardless of that, I DO have a passion for clothing and character design, and I deserve your respect just as much as anybody else. THANKS.
-The bases I have for sale are the bases I have for sale. Please do not contact me asking me if I can sell you ones that are not available through premium content platform purchases.
-If I wanna put a base up for sale, I will, but I'll do that when I want to. Not when you want me to.
-Stop tracing my bases.
-Stop tracing my bases.
-Stop tracing my bases. You are STEALING from me when you trace my work. I'm sorry, if you don't feel like you're good at making your own bases from scratch, or cannot afford P2U bases by me, or other deviantART users, but it's not an excuse for you to fucking trace my work and try to get away with being a filthy little thief. You're a goddamn leech if you honestly feel that tracing is acceptable.
Reposting my Art or Adoptables
-Don't have permission? Don't repost it, unsourced or otherwise.
The Adoptables I Buy
-If you're not the seller, it's none of your fucking business what I do or don't do with the designs I PAID for.
My Characters (adopted or designed by me)
-AGAIN, NOT YOUR FUCKING BUSINESS WHAT I DO OR DON'T DO WITH THEM.
-Do NOT copy my OCs.
-The money I make is not your business.
-While I've been known to have quite a few points sometimes, it's not okay to guilt me about it.
-I earned everything. The profit I make wasn't just magically dropped into my fucking lap.
-It's not your goddamn place to question how much I charge or how much people offer (the latter typically being the case).
-It's not your fucking place to question what I do with my profit, either.
My Personal Life
-Not okay to bother me and tell me that I'm getting a poor education by not going to a physical school.
-Not okay to constantly pester me about my relationship status, sexuality, and whether or not I 'like' anyone.
-If you have ANY questions, feel free to ask, but be prepared to be denied an answer. I cannot guarantee I will answer everything, and I don't owe you any details.
My Opinions and Beliefs
-Don't agree? That's fine.
-Don't agree and cannot handle the fact that we disagree on something? Unwatch me, don't visit my page, hell, BLOCK ME, if you must.
Lastly, I am a person. I exist. I'm not just a username on a website that spits out designs and artwork at random for your benefit. I appreciate support, but sometimes I need a break. This isn't a message to most of you, it's a message to the people who contact me on tumblr accusing me of things, to the people who have stolen my art, to the people who harass me, and to the people who have offended me on multiple occasions and KNOW they have.
ALRIGHT YEAH FUCKING THANKS
(I'm sorry, but I've just.. had it. I'm exhausted. I'm tired of being so unreasonably stressed ALL THE TIME.)
If something you have questions about was not answered here, feel free to ask, and I'm sorry if this is off-putting, but I'm just...done.
I will likely delete this later, I just.. needed to vomit these feelings up somewhere, and there's no better place than the source.
