Please do not repost my artwork on your Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Or at least consider first asking if the image is at all allowed to be shared outside of Tumblr.
If you really like my artwork, feel free to reblog, retweet, share direct links, pin etc, but do not repost it without my permission.
If you’re thinking that by reposting you’re giving me ‘exposure’, you’re terribly wrong.
What you’re actually doing is:
- driving audience off my own accounts in those social media
- messing up my SM analytics and traffic data
- taking away potential commissions from me. A lot of clients do commission me through social media accounts, and each gallery doubles as addition to my portfolio. I even use my Instagram and DeviantArt accounts to show stuff during job interviews.
I don’t care how many ‘likes’ and comments my art got on your page.
I do care how many views on my social media portfolios I didn’t get and how many potential commissions I didn’t get because my artwork got scattered all over other people’s accounts.
- not to mention, some silly stuff or low-quality sketches were not meant to be shown on certain social media.
THE WORST, YOU’RE EXPOSING THE ARTWORK THAT MUST NOT BE SHOWN ON THOSE SOCIAL MEDIA AT ALL.
There is certain artwork I never asked you to show to my friends, family, co-workers and current or future clients.
If it’s supposed to be on Tumblr only, YOU CAN’T ARGUE WITH THAT. JUST DELETE IT FROM YOU INSTAGRAM. NOW.
As artist I have exclusive right to draw and share whatever I want, as well as to define how people use and share my drawings. The Internet might give you fake sense that once it’s posted, you can do whatever you want with it - but actually, you can’t. Bad news, you can’t do that even next 70 years after my death, so.
If you see someone reposting my artwork and you’re not sure they are allowed to do that, please send me a message with the link to their profile. Do not try to ask them directly about removing it, they might actually have the permission - sometimes I draw gifts or do allow certain arts to be reposted. Just message me and I’ll check it myself.
You can find detailed information on what is ok and what is not here
Thank you very much for your attention and let’s spread only love and respect.
Kris and Luhan’s side: Your Honor, we now provide you with evidence of grossly uneven profit distribution between SM Entertainment and EXO artists up until the time of our clients’ file for contract termination
Judge: And can the representatives from SM Entertainment® explain why the company did not pay the artists in a timely manner, twice a year, and instead paid them only once again, at a rate of 3-5% of domestic sales to be split perhaps unfairly between all 12 members?
SM: *trying to retain composure, afraid to stutter* We’ll look into it, Your Honor. We will submit our findings in writing.
Kris and Luhan’s side: Your Honor, I would like to request another plea date to submit more evidence corroborating our claims. We cannot wait for SM to dilly dally and submit their written essay by 5pm who-knows-how-many-weeks from now. We assure the court that this hearing will be well worth the investment in time.
Alright, you’ve got it. However this will be a final plea. I have other court cases to hear. The final plea date will take place on Friday, April 8th, at 11:30 a.m. I expect both parties to be in attendance.
SM: *sweats profusely* Yes, Your Honor.
Judge: *bangs gavel* Court Adjourned.
Later, in SM Headquarters™:
Some poor employees: CEO Youngmin! Your Grace, Your Honor, Your Greatness. We have bad news about the court hearing today.
What, what is it? If it was bad, you told them you would look into it right? Stall as much as you can make sure they get nowhere.
Same poor employees, now nervous: Yes we did but unfortunately the judge granted them another plea date! It’s supposed to be the final plea date, so this is our last chance ! It is theirs as well.
More unfortunate souls: Yes, Your Grace, they plan to submit more … evidence relating to what they call “unfair profit distribution.” They plan to cite details from the contract about the differing proportionate figures the members received and they think it will help them win the case !
CEO Youngmin: Well, will it?
All unfortunate souls [in unison]: Yeah, probably.
CEO Youngmin: That is despicable. More despicable than our marketing practices. What can we do to keep this quiet in the public sphere?
Helpful Employee #1: We can divert media attention away from it, Your Highness!
CEO Youngmin: Yes that is a common tactic we employ. I love influencing the media. But we need to be proactive here ! A setup for losing to those traitors would be devastating.
Helpful Employee #2: Well, you could do both, Your Excellence. It depends on what tactic you want to employ. We have many artists with lots of activities going on, maybe we could hype those up perhaps?
CEO Youngmin: No. No I have a better idea. What’s the name of that boy group that those traitors left? EXID?
Everyone else: No, Your Grace. They are called EXO.
CEO Youngmin: Ah yes, EXO that does ring a bell. They have accounted for a huge portion of our revenue the past few years. Do they have any scandals going on?
Helpful Employee #3: No, Your Highness. They just finished a worldwide concert tour and are resting up for a big –
CEO Youngmin: Who out of that group did we find fit to date publicly in case we needed a media diversion?
Helpful Employees #1&2: Originally we considered Luhan, Baekhyun and Kim Jongin. They were free to date our ideal choices any time they wished so long as they kept it within the company.
Well one of those is a traitor and we already used the other one. What about that Jong Un fellow? Is he dating anyone? Can we use that?
Helpful Employee Connected with Dispatch: Actually Your Grace, he is dating Krystal from our company’s girl group, f(x). The two did a photoshoot along with SHINee’s Taemin a while ago last year, and the public agreed with it well. They enjoyed seeing the aesthetics between the two. Luckily, my connection with Dispatch informs me that they already have photos secured of the couple waiting to be released for our own purposes.
Concerned Employee: Isn’t that bad though? We shouldn’t just expose them like that. They’ve been dating secretly for months!
CEO Youngmin: No it’s perfect. This is exactly what I want. They fit our ideal couple and they have no scandals or schedules right now. This is even better than Baekhan and Taecyeon.
Helpful Employee Connected with Dispatch #2: Actually Your Grace, we had to pay the outlet off. They wanted to release the photos earlier, but we arranged to pay them off until it would suit us to have the public know. We thought next month would be a good time anyway, since we plan on debuting that boy group next month too –
CEO Youngmin: That is what I like to hear. Give the public the dating revelation they want to hear. Generate attention to our company. Hype us up so we can debut our boy group (they are a boy group right? “Yes.” good.) even more successfully, and after the group has debuted and gained attention, the couple will be forgotten enough so we can orchestrate their returns later this year. All while deflecting attention from that nasty lawsuit hearing.
- It is ingenious.
SM Employees: [clapping in awe at the brilliant plan]
Concerned Employee: Your Honor, when do you suggest we implement these plans? The plea date is set for April 8th, and that is the same day as EXO’s anniversary –
CEO Youngmin: You know the rule. Proactive measures are typically taken a week in advance. Make the couple announcement on April 1st.
Everyone else: That’s April Fool’s Day, Sir. No one would believe it is true.
CEO Youngmin: Then have Dispatch release the photos and start the rumor. When the press asks for confirmation or denial, confirm immediately. We have no need to drag it out.
Concerned Employee: Your Excellence, what about debuting the boy group? How soon after the 8th should that happen?
CEO Youngmin: Immediately. We need that quieted as soon as possible. Don’t make it obvious by putting it on the same date; debut them on the 9th or 10th, something like that.
Concerned Employee: With all due respect, that places their debut date right after that of EXO, Your Highness! What about dissatisfaction and backlash from EXO L? Or other supporters of other groups who support EXO too ?
CEO Youngmin: That is a sacrifice I am willing to make. Some of them are bound to be dissatisfied with the dating announcement; we will give them a nice way of handling their emotional situation by giving them a new group to follow and anticipate as well. The dissatisfaction they may wield cannot possibly outplay the dissatisfaction with Red Velveteen’s debut date being so close to that of the Generation of Girls.
Everyone else: *nods understandingly*
CEO Youngmin: Besides, I have it here in my email sent out to the company in 2012 that Kai x Krystal is an ideal couple that the public will receive well. They will generate positive feedback from the masses, create publicity for our company, and set the stage for the spotlight to be on our next big money maker. This money maker will distract the public from the money we will probably lose, and hopefully the ideal couple stays intact in the background for us to continue to use to our advantage.
Concerned Employee [last ditch attempt to bring some sanity to the situation]: Excuse me, but does no one remember how the fans and public reacted to the last couple involving an EXO member? They called one of our own most loyal a traitor on a live music show broadcast ! Another dating scandal could ruin the group’s image severely. Should not we exercise caution?
CEO Youngmin: No. This exodus group has already seen and surpassed three traitors and a dating scandal with serious backlash. They can withstand a little more pressure, no matter how obvious it admittedly seems we handle them differently.. If they can’t stand the heat, our new boy group will instead. That plea hearing is set for the same date as EXO’s debut anniversary anyway. We already cannot save them as it is.
Everyone else: Brilliant and measured! Your Intelligence knows no bounds, Your Excellence!
Later, in EXO’s dorm:
Manager: Kim Jongin, I have some bad news. [proceeds to tell him about SM’s plans to reveal his relationship*
Kai [outraged]: What the fuck *calls Krystal* Did they tell you already? Yeah I know what the fuck –
Baekhyun: [pulling on Chanyeol’s ears] What’s happening? Are you screwed now too?
Kai: YEAH I AM
Baekhyun: Oh. Well that sucks. But you knew this was coming when they sent out that email –
Kai: Man fuck that email.
Suho (in another room): Jongin, watch your language. What exactly is going on?

There are many so it makes for a long list. The forms of bullying have included harassment, name calling, threats of violence, stalking, doxxing, and blackmail. The people who have been bullied range from fellow Outlander fans to innocent bystanders, to cast and crew members of the show.
Seeing in writing the number of people who have been bullied by s-shippers is stomach turning, so proceed with caution. Note this list is not meant to be all inclusive or chronological, and comes from memory with the assistance of a friend who provided details of some of the most egregious acts of bullying.
Victim 1: Former S-shipper and now former friend of Jess. This victim is also a journalist. What was her crime in the eyes of s-shippers? The journalist went to Tony’s bar and discovered he was Cait’s SO, and published her findings. S-Shippers went after her maliciously for weeks, and the bullying didn’t stop until she deleted the post.
Victim 2: Tony, Cait’s SO. Although Tony has zero SM presence s-shippers put him in the spotlight, and began a campaign to dehumanize him. S-shippers were so rabid with the name calling, the comments, and accusations that Cait blocked a major s-shipper on Twitter. Even with a Cait block, s-shippers to this day vilify Tony every chance they get.
Victim 3: The mother of a friend of Sam’s. Yes, that’s correct, the mother of Sam’s friend. The mother posted a comment on a SM post which implied that her daughter and Sam previously had a short lived personal relationship. In true anti-fan s-shipper form they pounced and accused this woman of pimping out her daughter to Hollywood in order to advance her daughters career. God forbid if the woman tried to defend herself or her daughter, s-shippers went low that day, incredibly low.
Victim 4: The daughter of Victim 3. Cody was assumed by many to have dated Sam in late 2014. S-shippers repeatedly referred to her as a whore on her SM accounts for months The bulling stopped once s-shippers were satisfied that there was no longer a relationship of any kind between Cody and Sam.
We all know that Purv took part in harassing Cody, however Purv did something that no s-shipper has ever done, she publicly apologized to Cody, and admitted that she was wrong with her behavior. I would like to see any s-shipper apologize to just one of her victims. Are any of you woman enough to do that? Any of you?
Victim 5: On the heals of Cody there’s Abbie, a former girlfriend of Sam’s. S-shippers came out swinging at Abbie early on. She was stalked, doxxed, and threatened for months. Her employer, friends, and family were contacted by a s-shipper in an attempt to terrorize her.
I don’t think it’s wise for Abbie to frequent 26 Grains now that several s-shippers also frequent this establishment under the guise of loving porridge. These s-shippers are not going to 26-G for the porridge, they are going there to be on the lookout for Abbie to do god knows what. I for one am glad that Abbie is physically fit. She may look small but I bet she packs one hell off a punch, and would knock a s-shipper on her ass if the need arose.
Victim 6: MM I pity any woman who has a friendship with Sam. The vile and the hate has become increasingly worse with each woman that Sam has a friendship with. MM was harassed on her IG account for months. In one comment s-shippers imply that she is a whore, and in the next they assert she’s bearding for him. The bullying of MM stopped only when Sam asked for it to stop. Why was a request even necessary?
Victim 7: Cast and Crew of Outlander. Sam, Nell, Terry, and Sam and Cait’s set drivers to name a few. All have done something to rock the ship in s-shippers eyes.
S-shippers bullied Sam with a massive letter writing campaign to Starz and to his agent demanding public apologies from both TPTB and Sam. What was Sam’s crime? He liked a FB post in support of anti-bullying, and that hurt someone’s feelings. Yes, that’s correct Sam liked a SM post in favor of MM not being bullied, and the s-shippers took offense and went nuclear. Additionally Sam befriended William Shatner, and s-shippers didn’t like this, and had the gall to demand that he stop associating with WS.
S-shippers have gone so far deep into the upside down with their obsession with Sam that not only do they try to control who he dates, but they also try to control who he is permitted to be friends with. Their bullying has no limits.
S-shippers have taken to Twitter on numerous occasions to bully. They’ve demanded that Sam and Cait’s drivers be fired. They have called Terry a drunk, and suggested that Ron physically assault her by sewing her lips shut. Poor Nell, they pulled the thirsty whore card on her with a trap-tweet. What could Nell have possibly done to deserve the bully treatment from s-shippers? She dared to answer a tweet s-shippers tagged her in regarding Sam’s whereabouts. Her response blew a ginormous hole in the ship so they had to silence her, and yet again dehumanize someone who not only rocked the ship, but sunk it.
Victim 8: Innocent bystanders who unknowingly get into the cross-hairs of s-shippers. There are many and they include journalists, Lynnette Rice of EW, and Bernadette Giacomazzo of the Inquisitr. Both were bullied and vilified for interviews/articles they wrote. BG was threatened and s-shippers contacted her editor in an attempt to have her fired.
William Shatner’s assistant, Lisa Marie, was threatened with physical harm when she came to s-shippers attention though their SM data mining activity. They incorrectly believed that she may have been Sam’s new girlfriend, and they went after her. She took a lot of crap, and when threatened, WS stepped in to defend her, and s-shippers pounced on him. WS didn’t back down, and with his massive number of Twitter followers it finally came to light the extent of s-shippers bullying.
Jess messed with the wrong man when she tried to bully WS into silence with her “Shut-Up” tweet. Thank you, Jess. It is becasue of you millions of people outside of the fandom know what s-shippers are. You’re bullies, and millions know you are the biggest bully in the fandom.
Anne Gavin from the Outlander cast blog. AG wrote a sympathetic post on shipping but stated that she did not believe that Sam and Cait were a couple. S-shippers came at her breathing fire. The comments, harassment etc she endured was enough to have made the most stoic of personalities cry. Anne may have cried, any of the victims may have cried, we will never know.
Victim 9: NST’s who have been specifically targeted by s-shippers. Several NST’s have been bullied with doxxing, threats, and blackmail. If you’ve been in the fandom for at least a year you know who has been victimized so there is no need to note who they are.
Victim 10: The Fandom. Every time s-shippers have bullied one of the above victims, and those not noted in this post they have bullied the entire fandom. Some fans have left because of the bullying, some are still around but are silent, and some will only participate though Tumblr’s anon function out of fear of being bullied by s-shippers.
I have wondered why s-shippers bully and have come to the conclusion that they do it becasue they find it entertaining and they enjoy the drama created from their behavior. These are the same people who claim love and light while at the same time actively engage in behavior to harm others. Simply put, s-shippers bully for sport. That’s not what decent people do, that’s not what fans do.
The Outlander fandom is better than what s-shippers have shown it to be. The reality is the fandom is full of decent and intelligent women who know the difference between Sam and Cait, and Jamie and Claire. Two of the named are real people with real lives outside of Outlander, and two are characters created by Diana Gabaldon a quarter of a century ago. If you don’t know the difference between the real life people and Diana’s creation, you’re part of the problem.
