Hello you all, true believers!
I adress to you this time to touch several subjects (heh heh, touchie touchie ^^), all of them derivated from the masive amopunt of drama that has been developing these past weeks around here. So, this is probably gonna be a long one. I'd advise to skip this all already if you're not particularly interested in this kind of stuff.Shooting Star
So, the first thing should be
's Shooting Star's downfall in the pages of Breaking Point, as seen in these:
This event, as I have stated before, has become canon in Shooting Star's storyline, in previous agreement and coordination with her writer/author. To me, it was a great honor that
trusted me enough to allow me to develop such an important event in the canon story of her characters, since it was no small thing after all. Things will change drastically for Shooting Star's status quo from now on, as you're going to be able to witness in
's page from now on.
I wanted to have some fun and gave a glimpse about things to come at this teaser right here:
The thing is, some "sensitive" people just freaked out about it. Even when I clarify that everything was with the author's consent, people just snapped out and started to tear their garments in a crazed almost histerical state of mind. "Zorro rapes and kills some other people's characters!!! Do not allow him to use your characters in his stories, he's just going to do what he wants with them!! He has no respect for others' characters at all, he's evil!! Eeeeeeeeviiiiiiiil!!!! *gurgle gurgle gurgle* *shakes shakes*" Dramatization for illustrative purposes
You see, even if I'm indeed, an evil bastard, somehow
and myself have managed to become very good friends. In fact, she's my e-BFF, we're besties and all. We talk to each other almost everyday, about so many different things. We have conforted each other in times of need. We have had a lot of fun doing silly stuff together. And of course, we talk about our stories and characters. That's how I got news about what was going to happen to Shooting Star, Breaking Point or not. Jessica's developing a whole new status quo for her, two of them as a matter of fact, and they both look pretty interesting and full of potential for a lot of future stories. But, for that to happen, Shooting Star needed to retire for a while by having a tragic accident. At that point, she still didn't know what exactly that accident could be. So I just teased: "Hey, she just could have that accident in Breaking Point, she could just get very hurt in some way..." And then Jessica agreeded without so much thinking.
That's how all happened, people. I never forced myself upon her, I never suggested her that her character should have that tragic event on her career. It was just two friends working together, helping and trusting each other. I know many of you have a serious lack of social skills, but in the real world this is how friendship and trust usually works. Dialogue, empathy and caring for each other are very important stuff in a healthy relationship, keep that in mind.
So, stop making a fuss about these little things. The whole thing had
's approval since the beginning. Besides that, these are all fanmade FICTIONAL characters. No one really got hurt, kids, comics aren't real, just in case you already didn't know that. And as you all could see, I don't even showed violence in a very explicit way. So let us all see what Jessy has under her sleeve for her characters from now on and stop saying poo-poo stuff just because you're "sensitive", really. You're more than welcome to stop looking at my ugly violent and incoherent stuff anyway, I don't think someone's forcing you to read that piece of junk.Jealousy and stuff
It has been brought to me in several ocassions that people are starting to get "jealous" at me. Jealous, really, peopleee???!! Dude, I'm a broke bastard living in a failed narco-estate in the third world, trapped in a job that could get me shot at any single time, unable to keep a long mature relationship. I was born as a miserable, will die as a miserable. You have NOTHING to be jealous of me, mostly because you're still so young and most of you lives in places where you actually can have a choice. So don't bring me that crap horse that you're feeling jealous about my amount of watchers of pageviews or other useless stuff.
You know, internet "fame" can be a very relative thing. Yeah, I have more than one thousand watchers, and I'm grateful to all of them for taking the bother of watching my ugly stuff. But there are also people in here that have more than 50 thousand watchers. I'm nothing compared to people like that. And then, if you take out said person from the DA community, and let's just talk about such person in the street, you're just going to get an answer like: "huuuh? sakiwhaaaat?"
There are tweet stars and youtubers with MILLIONS of subscriptions, and u know what else? People still doesn't recognize them on the streets.
So, stop believing that having a lot of watchers and pageviews will bring you happiness. It doesn't work like that, at all, You could have all the seven billions of humans suscribed to you, and yet you'd still feel lonely and sad if you keep being a jerk to yourself. That's where do you have to start, by your own self. Give yourself a like, fav, watch, whatever... things will start to get better from that point on...Blocked!!!
Now join me to see this sad tragic story. The guy in italics is me:
"Excuse me for my sudden intrusion but I would like to ask you that are you available for either a Request or a Collaboration currently ? NOT Commission's.""Hi there! Nope, sorry!! I'm too busy to do anything else besides what I upload in my gallery... thanks for the interest, anyway! "
"So not now but Later ?"
"I really can't promise anything, sorry again!! ^^' "
"in that case, I'll just tell my Idea now than later, allow me to say this as Clear and as Simple as Possible and I also wanted to stressed out the part that this Project ISN'T anything related to Free or REQUEST or Free Request unless you'd want to make this as one, until that is confirmed, please don't say anything being Free for I will ignore that Statement.Now again, before I revealed to you about my Idea of Collaboration, please don't think anything about this Collaboration being nothing more giving away artwork's for "FREE", do know that Collaboration's and Request's aren't the same and neither is Commission's, in other word's, this ISN'T a Free but it's also not a Paying type of Collaboration either, for Paying is falling into the Commission's Category which I cannot do because I cannot afford them. anyway, my Idea of Collaboration is a NSFW Comic Collaboration to be Honest and Precise but here's the catch, I cannot draw and I'm a Writer asking a Drawer type of Artist which is you and I think you know already who's doing what but just so you know, I am Responsible for the Writing role such as Script's,Dialogue, Stories etc and now all I need is someone to help me turn them into a Comic.also, there's no time limit's in this Collaboration, so the "No Time's Reason's" isn't gonna be a Problem.and lastly, please don't say something like "I hope you'd find somebody else's to help you with your Idea." because pretty much 95% of those I've asked before you told me those exact same Lines over and over again for a very long time, if you do want to say those word's then please tell me who's that "Someone else's" is for I'm not the type of person that'd give up so easily nor the type that accept a "NO" for an answer without a Good Reason.Your Help would be Greatly Appreciated."
"Oh, well... Seems like you're a little frustrated with this thing, and that's understandable until some point. So, let me be clear, as I've been since the beginning: I can't do what you're asking. I just don't have the time nor the interest.
You said that time it's not an excuse, but to someone like me, who does this as a hobby, it is. Drawing it's just one of my many pastimes, and I have to manage all those under my scarce free time. So, it doesn't matter if you give me ten years to do the whole thing, I just won't have the time to do it. Drawings just doesn't come out from my rear, they take a lot of time and effort and that's why I prefer to use such time and effort in my own ideas.
So you should better stop wasting time with me and ask someone else. Or start learning to draw so you can do the whole thing by yourself, since it's going to be very difficult that you find someone who would want to do this in the terms you're asking. This will be my last saying in the matter, so please stop asking. No means no. Stop trying to force yourself into others, that will just keep people away from you."
"is this a YES or a NO ? P.S. I've failed at drawing for the last 15 years, don't think for a moment I haven't tried."
"This is definitely a NO. Tried to be as polite as possible, but seems that's not going to take us anywhere. So, again, it's a NO, so please stop asking. This will be my last saying in the matter..."
"Why NO ?"
"Just read all my previous messages, dude, it's all in there. Bye-bye!"
"no it's not, I've told you the No Time reason is not applied to this Collab."
"Ready now ?"
Art thieves and bullying
Apparently, my friend is a nasty art thief, or at least that's what people are saying around. She did the HORRIBLE, UNFORGIVABLE mistake of posting some google images as RP starters. You know, that stuff when someone puts a picture of a hot supermodel and then make up some silly story to have fun rping at the comments? Well, it seems that's a very ugly stuff to do in here. And even worst, she dared to block right away the person that found out about this outrageous act and harassed her to told her to stop her mischief. That was such a grave mistake, since she's such a big thing around here and immediately sent her hordes of loyal watchers to start bullying her and calling her names, threatening with report her and stuff like that.
It's kinda funny because you see all these kids' pages and they have all these stamps about "I'm against bullying", "I'm against intollerance", "I'm against violence", and even have this rainbow pride badge... that's what I call irony at its best...
Anyway, sarcasm apart, I always have find in a very awful taste to use your watchers as your personal goons and literally ask them to go and make miserable some misguided person that only wanted to have fun and probably make some friends along the way. I've seen a lot of people doing this, using watchers as a hunting pack, that's because I'm so grateful to have you guys, since you all don't give a crap about anything I'd ask you to do. You guys are mature enough to have your own opinions and point of views on any regard and that makes me feel proud of you! Now, go and destroy that mean little girl that's harassing my friend, her account is..... xPP
And finally, to make it clear: I do think that art thief is an ugly thing to do. But, what's art thief? Somebody that takes a picture or something from around and posts its somewhere else, claiming it to be his own work. Until that point, that could be bothersome. But if said person starts profiting from said work, then that's a crime and that's why copyright laws are for.
The thing is, I saw many of those RP starters in Zoe's page. She never claimed those pictures to be made by her. She never charge people for rping with her, she never got any penny from those pics. Just like anyone else that does that kind of stuff. In a very strict sense, yes, it still goes against DA rules. But, doing that deserves to call for a public lynching like that, and getting bullied by people that are agaisnt bullying? Was she hurting somebody? Does all the artists and photographers that owns the rights of all those pictures received a strong electrical shock every time that Zoe put one of their pictures in her RP starters?
"Oh, lalala, such a wonderful day it is, being myself a photographer and all! I'm so going to take so many cute pictures today!! Huuuh.. wait... what... AAAAAAAAAAAH!!! AAAAAAAAAAH!! Oh, for god's sake, somebody help me!!! Somebody's putting my stuff somewhere with non-lucrative reasons!!! Gyaaaaaaah, it huuuuuuuuuuuurts!!! Make it stooooooop!!!!" Dramatization for illustrative purposes
So, anyway, I just wanted you all guys to know that there's a sheriff in town, an enforcer of law and good manners that despise that kind of art thieves, guys with fetishes and everyone else who doesn't acknowledge her. So, all of you, stop. Just stop. or they will find you!!
And I think that's all for now. A very long one, I told you. In all seriousness, stop being mean to each other. This is a place where we all come to have fun, so enough with the drama.
