The Abyss fandom, I swear, will turn me into a total bitch one day.

Dear Abyss Fandom:

I am not a doujin scanning service.
Neither do I remember actually saying HEY, PLEASE USE MY ICONS WITHOUT ASKING.

It is an entirely different story when people ask nicely. Or if I put icons up for general use. It is also another story if you've actually bothered to take the effort to get to know me. It is also a completely different story if I like you and want to make you happy.

But when total strangers come up to me and demand things as if it was their right, and expect that I have nothing better to do with my time than comply, I draw the line.

You made me smile! *snugs tight* Thank you so much.

Don't worry, I'm not sad. *grin* Maybe the sky is, and it's weeping buckets to make up for my secret emo. ;) Nah, I'm just furious enough to throw several idiots (several! I ask you! They never come singly!) through the Internet, but otherwise it's all good!

YOU. *snug* You just made me laugh, and realise that I was printing the Patent Office's guidelines for examining medical inventions entirely the wrong way. *laughing* Thank you so much, dear.


This "doormat" will bite their feet off at the ankles.

As my permanent markers are running out of ink, that would be most welcome! ♥

You are different, because I love you very much.

*snuggles you*


Where can I yell at them? :O Please let me at them! *gets claws out*

oh, you. I get angry when random strangers ask you to scan things NICELY, I think I am nearly as pissed off as you are! LET ME THROW THEM OFF THE DURIAN, and then let's jump off together. <3

It is okay, there is no need to yell. I'll deal with it myself. By publicly bitching on LJ, and if ANYBODY dares to annoy me after this I shall find great glee in linking them this post ♥

You're so sweet. *grin*

WHAT A WASTE JUMPING OFF THE DURIAN WOULD BE, because then we would have to land where THEY did.

Oh god, do I know that. I had the same problem with the Digimon fandom, though with music instead. See, I own practically every CD ever released for the show. So I thought I'd be nice and share them. So I ripped them all (both as variable bitrate mp3s and 320) and uploaded them to megaupload (which was the best choice at the time). No no no, there were always people who weren't happy with that. Please upload somewhere else! D: ZOMG WE CAN'T DOWNLOAD THEM! >.>;; That's over a hundred CDs, and quite a lot of them were well over 100 megs when zipped. WTF? Get a friend to download them for you. ARGH:H PO#YR(@Y$#(R%VY@#$()!!! RAGERAGERAGE!

*coughs* Ahem. But yeah, fannish entitlement? Pisses me right the fuck off! :D

Luke feels your pain! As I do! *snarls and also RAGE*

The funny thing is that sometimes I feel guilty for not wanting to do it. A part of me thinks that I should try my best. But then another part of me says I've only got so much goodwill and there is absolutely no way I'm going to be nice all the time. I try to. But sometimes one just has to know where to draw the line.

And the worst is when people just have no consideration for whatever else you might be doing and think that all you've got to do in life is to acquiesce to their demands.

But my heavens, I salute your determination. That's some dedication. *grin*

How dare these people! Upsetting my master!

Well at least you are well aware you don't have to do anything at all for these people! Draw the line, and dare them to cross it. >D
6th-Dec-2006 11:14 am (UTC)
I wouldn't do anything if I didn't feel guilty about it. But fortunately, I feel pissed off enough not to feel guilty about it. ♥

Padawan is precious. XD

Who is it. I am very much willing to chouchindou his/her *ss.

Hey :D! I get them first! xDD GO STAND IN LINE. *g*

*is entirely too cheerful about killing stupid fangirls*

But I am very thankful for people like you who do not post things under f-lock. I wouldn't know/own half the things I do if you didn't.

(... and from my replying skills, I may be a stupid fangirl too. D= )
6th-Dec-2006 12:17 pm (UTC)
EEE I love the keywords in your icon. *grin*


That's the thing! I know what it feels like to run up against a f-locked journal and go... okay, I see, ACCESS DE-NIED. So I don't want to subject people to that too.

(DO NOT WORRY ♥ You are no stupid fangirl! *snug*)

Did you hear about the Bankai Bus that's supposedly going around promoting the upcoming Bleach movie? ;)
6th-Dec-2006 11:52 am (UTC)
Ahck, I know how you feel. I make icon posts, ones full of icons that are MEANT for people to take, and I'm flattered when people use those. But all the time I'll see people who have just taken the icons I make for myself (usually just my stupid crack ones, I didn't know anyone else would ever want them anyway, but still), and once or twice not even with credit, even though I specified in the description of my default icon that I would prefer if people didn't. I'd probably be perfectly willing or maybe not, in a few VERY specific cases to let someone use one or a few if they ask, but I never hear anything.
Sometimes it's people I don't even know, too. At least I'm friends with them sometimes, and that's usually okay, but when I'm not...it's weird.

And your doujin scanning is SO generous, you're amazing for doing what you already have, don't let people nag you around for more unless you want to. ♥
6th-Dec-2006 12:14 pm (UTC)
Clearly we share the same icon-making brain! *grin*

Either that, or we listen to too much Shania Twain...

It's crazy, isn't it? I find that the Abyss fandom is actually one of the worst I've ever been in when it comes to icon making and usage. Perhaps I just haven't been in enough. But I'm sorry to hear that you've had similar problems, too.

I never hear anything, either. And it always comes as a mild shock to me when I find my icons used on message boards and other LJs and I feel uncomfortable because it's strange realising that all these people are actually watching you (or at least your icons) - and you never know what else they're up to.

Although I must say I am at times quite amused whwen some of them take my slashy icons and clearly have absolutely no idea that they're meant to be slashy. And when they're adamant no-slash people, too.

*snugs* Even though I'm not in the fandom, I still feel your pain.

Um. Yeah.

*sends irritating fangirls/boys all evil thoughts she can muster*
6th-Dec-2006 04:13 pm (UTC)
*snugs back* Thank you, dear.

It's true, the English TOA fandom is very young. Both in terms of how long it's been around and the ages of the people in it. I don't think there's a connection between age and the general kindness of the fandom. The most accepting fandom I've ever been in is actually the Star Wars fandom, and considering that about half the fandom there was watching the Luke Skywalker movies when they first came out in theatres, fandom generosity and acceptance isn't age-related.

I do think there is a correlation between the content of the fandom and the kind of people it attracts, though.

I don't know about how Abyss compares to other anime fandoms because I haven't been in many, but I would say the KKM fandom was certainly comparable, and it too was kind - well, if one stayed out of pairing wars, that is. I don't know if I'd say it was one of the most accepting and generous ones, but maybe I'm not feeling very charitable tonight.

I'm sorry people are bugging you. It's unfortunate that when you do something as a special favor, sometimes people feel they're entitled to whatever it is constantly and on demand. :(

Don't you f-lock your doujin uploads though anyway~?
6th-Dec-2006 04:11 pm (UTC)
Sad fact of human nature, unfortunately. Most people are very nice about it, and make me happy to share, but it's always the one or two - or three or four or five, really, who get on my nerves.

Not only are the doujin uploads flocked, they're also on a special filter. ;)

So true. *sigh*

But your icon is cute!
6th-Dec-2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
Augh, what the hell is up with you, ToA fandom? It's like, you leave behind one problem when you stop being active in one fandom (KH and English-speaking fans freely giving out passwords to locked Japanese sites) and you get a new one in your new fandom (ToA and FREE LOVE MEANS NOT HAVING TO CREDIT!!1!!!)

6th-Dec-2006 06:39 pm (UTC)
Sadly, there are people like that everywhere. Sorry to hear that they've chosen to prey upon your kindness.
Don't you wish there was some way to remotely disconnect their internet? ;D
6th-Dec-2006 07:58 pm (UTC)
You should find their IPs, track down where they live, and go punch them in the face.

6th-Dec-2006 08:20 pm (UTC)
I totally understand that sort of situation - being nice doesn't mean you can demand things of me without manners >_<

I know you'd scan anything I ask for. Duh I would scanlate anything you ask for anyways, Just bribe me.

*plugs an icon to tell kuzus to get lost unless they happen to be cute little redheads*
7th-Dec-2006 05:47 pm (UTC) - yes, but shhhhhhhh~
Very true. One or two I can dismiss, but four or so is a little more than I can handle all at once.

Even cute little redheads need manners, too. Otherwise they end up in the trash, for real. And these days I just might be the one to put them there until they learn how to behave.

I know you'd scan anything I ask for.
... is it so obvious must you make it so obvious? Yes, but that's because you're special.

You mean, even pr0n that burns my eyes out? >D
