RANT

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 16, 2013, 12:54 PM



Okay look.
I'm going to write a rant about this because I think I've had just about enough of this.
Please notify that when I write this, I don't mean to point a finger at every homestucker who watches me, nor am I trying to point a finger at someone directly, but this stuff HAS been happening to me and I'm really fucking sick of hearing the same shit, so if please read, especially if you're a homestuck fan so you know not to do this.
Once again I don't mean to be yelling at any individual or all homestuck fans so please don't take it like I am.


So,
I've been hearing the same old thing for so long now.
Homestuck fans will always come to me and tell me that my artwork looks like some homestuck style, or my characters look like homestuck characters, or just referencing homestuck to everything I do.

Listen. I'm not a homestuck fan myself. I don't necessarily have a problem with homestuck in general, but some of the fans just REALLY know how to piss me off beyond belief.
When homestuckers think its okay to invade other fandoms and shit that has nothing to do with it angers me, even though I know that every fandom does it. I know that. but I see homestuck fans do it a lot. I don't know if its just me but I seem to see them a lot more then other fandoms. (again its just me, and I'm not pointing out every homestuck fan, just certain ones. I repeat because I don't want people to think I'm completely ANTIHOMESTUCK or anything because I'm not, and I'm trying not to offend anybody in any way)
And I HATE IT when I hear people tell me, "Oh Rin acts like Karkat" or "Oh, that character looks like gamzee" or ETC., ETC., ETC.
I DO NOT APPRECIATE THAT. OKAY?
IT SERIOUSLY MAKES ME WANT TO SET FIRE TO SOMETHING.
IF YOU SAY STUFF LIKE THAT, IT AUTOMATICALLY MAKES ME WANT TO DROP KICK YOU.


I do NOT get inspiration from Homestuck. I do NOT base my characters or anything I draw off of it, unless I'm drawing something HS related for someone else or something.

If you haven't noticed, I have been hiding every comment that says something like that, so I am not tempted to yell at you.
Because I would.
And nobody wants me to yell at them.
I don't genuinely like to yell at people either, so please don't put me in that position. Its really not fun for anybody.

I know HS is really popular and I know people base their whole fucking lives on it, but please. All I ask is that you keep it away from me.

I know some of my REALLY close friends are big homestuckers, and I seriously have no problem with it at all, unless they're yapping in ear constantly about nothing but it.
Thats when I get annoyed.

Yes. You CAN indeed talk to me about it, or bring it up in a conversation if you really feel like it. Thats fine. I have no problem with that.
But like I said. I DO however have a problem when:

ONE: People reference my original or other artwork to Homestuck.
TWO: When people tell me my characters are like the characters from homestuck, or my artwork reminds them of it.
THREE: WHEN ALL I HEAR IS HOMESTUCK, HOMESTUCK, HOMESTUCK.
STOP.
JUST STOP.

Okay. Now this stuff is getting repetitive and long, and nobody likes too long of a rant, so I'm going to end this now because I think you all got the general idea of what  I'm yelling in your faces about.

This is one of the things in the world that really, REALLY irritates me and I'm glad I got that off my chest and you all know.

Im sorry if something I said seemed a bit harsh, like I said before multiple times, Im not targeting anyone in general, and I'm certainly not trying to be mean about it.

Okay.
If you survived through all that yelling, thank you for reading.

I'm a  fan of homestuck and I don't really talk about it unless someone says something first anyway a lot of characters in different things have small similarities so I don't understand why people point it out and I don't think your art looks anything like homestuck style art or fanart

Ok, I've read this, overstepping the boundary slightly fyi, (im sorry if I do). I understand these are your characters, nothing like Hussie's whatsoever. But sometimes people in fandoms want to relate things like personality, looks, etc. Yes I agree with some when they say "Hey they look/act/sound like Karkat, or Gamzee etc." Or some such fuck. But I also see your characters are their own individual self. They're fucking awesome. Nuff said, I understand the annoyance when people look at my art saying, "Hey isn't that blah blah blah," and I will go "No, its not, its my character." They might not believe me, saying "Well but they look like them, did you like... copy their character?" 

THEN I lose my shit. So yeah, its sad to see an artist get to the point of ranting on how IDIOTIC SOME PEOPLE CAN BE.

THANK YOU AND SORRY FOR MY OWN MINI RANT.
