that's like illegal or something

No Longer Selling Fanart

Unfortunately after an incident that happened yesterday, I’ve decided to remove all the fan art from my Etsy. Sorry to anyone who was looking forward to getting anything. If you happen to be going to the same convention or event as me, let me know and I’ll try to get you the prints you want. To all those who already ordered prints, you’ll still get them so don’t worry.

So what led to this drastic decision? Well that’s simple. Valve saw my Portal piece that I just posted yesterday and reported me to Etsy for copyright infringement. No, they didn’t email or message me first, asking me to take it down. I would’ve removed it immediately if they’d asked. Instead they took it straight to Etsy. Why is this so bad? Well you see, when you’ve been reported to Etsy once for copyright infringement, it puts you on their radar. If you get reported another time for copyright infringement, then Etsy has the ability to terminate your account/store and most likely keep you from making a new store.

Thanks to Valve’s abrupt copyright claim, I now have a mark against me. And if I get reported once more, I could lose my store which is my only source of income right now (despite how little I actually make from it).

I’m a little annoyed and betrayed that a company that I’ve admired and loved for so long would do this. I understand why they wanted it removed, I just wish they’d asked me first.

And since all this has happened, I’ve been looking into copyright law which has led me to an important discovery. Selling fan art is actually illegal. Companies can go after you for selling images and likenesses of their characters. Most will just ask you to remove it, but they have the legal right to sue you and ask for a percentage of your profits if they really want to. I personally didn’t know this and I’m sure others out there don’t either.

So that’s why I will no longer be selling fan art online. I’m sharing my knowledge with all you guys so you don’t get sucked into this mess like I have.

I quite honestly the Stan Stipplers would benefit from actually listening to I Will Get A Vasectomy. Particularly the line “being edgy is okay but the same ten jokes in a row is not okay.”

I was looking back and can I just say your Alphys is too cute and that should be entirely illegal to show us something like that that's so cute and never draw it again and pretend that it didn't happen

I’m the master of the things that are illegal and should be pretended not to exist

Live fast die young

guess what fucking happened

spoiler: it involves the girl that asked me if I ever tried to hang myself

Warning this is gonna be long

k so our substitute teacher wasn’t giving a fuck, so everyone got on their phones, including me. So girl next to Bitchgirl asks, “what game are you playing?” I said “I’m not playing a game I’m writing the next chapter for my story” and Bitchgirl says “what’s it about” and I said “you’re not allowed to talk to me” and she said “says who” and I said “says mr so and so” and she said “he didn’t tell me that lol”

and here is where shit hits the fan

this crazy Dickboy gets in my face and was all “hey lets calm down here no one did anything” and I said “get out of my face” and pushed him away

and then…wait for it…wait for it…

he fucking fLEW BACKWARDS LIKE A FUCKING BOMB WENT OFF AND LANDED FLAT ON HIS BACK

HE STARTED SCREAMING “TEACHER TEACHER hetalia-text-messages JUST SHOVED ME! THATS ASSAULT! SHE ASSAULTED ME OH GOD I NEED TO GO TO THE NURSE” AT THE TOP OF HIS SHITTY LUNGS

BUT WAIT IT GETS BETTER

TEN PEOPLE BACKED HIM UP

TEN

PEOPLE

THEY SAID “OH YEAH SHE PUSHED HIM TO THE FLOOR MAN IT WAS CRAZY THATS LIKE ILLEGAL OR SOMETHING”

GOD BLESS AMERICA AND BREAK A FOOT OFF IN MY ASS

I TOLD THE TEACHER I WAS LEAVING AND HE SAID “k” AND I STOMPED OUT WITH MY INFAMOUS BITCHFACE AND SAID “SCREW Y'ALL”

IM SO FUCKING PISSED I DONT CARE WHAT YOU SAY NOW IM SO SICK OF THIS SHIT I WANT TO SMASH SOMETHING

Hey batool sorry to bother, but what's happening with chanyeol?

hello ^^ its fine anonnie. chanyeol just posted a video of the pokemon game and he happened to have downloaded it illegally bc it wasnt available in korea (note that in south korea illegal downloads arent something thats not popular like c’mon…everybody does it esp in sk) so he got a lot of backlash bc he’s a “celebrity” and should be more responsible – so since he read all the mean comments that mainly kfans wrote about him, he apologized by posting a pic of himself and a long heartfelt apology but then kfans decided that he wasnt being sincere enough bc he used too many exclamation points (he started the apology with “hello im chanyeol!!”/”annyeonghaseyo chanyeol imnida!!”) so he deleted it, posted a black screen pic and removed all the exclamation points which is complete bullshit. i dont think they should be chastising him for downloading it anyways and i definitely dont think they get to decide whether hes being sincere enough or not.

just to clarify, I don’t have some vendetta against shipping.

if you ship a thing, that’s cool. But like. I just don’t CARE

if you ship a thing I don’t like, w/e I’ll keep scrolling and move on with my day. I’m not going to beat you up bc “>:O YOU LIKE THING?? THAT I DON’T LIKE???”

bc that’s just stupid. You’re allowed to like things. You’re allowed to not like things. Shipping this or not shipping that doesn’t make you or anything PROBLEMATIC. You don’t ship anyone? Great! I don’t care. I’m just happy that you enjoy a game/show/story that I do and we can talk about it and enjoy ourselves and be friends. And if shipping or not shipping things makes you happy, shit bro go for it. If it brightens up your day and makes you feel nice, that’s all that matters to me. So long as you’re a decent person thats not a dick to other people for disagreeing with you or for having differing opinions, that’s all good in my books.

What matters to me is that we enjoy a common interest and we can nerd out about it. And that excites me.

Idk where this is coming from. Maybe It’s bc I’m going two whole days with 0 hours of sleep. Maybe I’ll delete this later, maybe I won’t.

But it’s something I need to get off my chest. Fandoms have gotten so toxic over shipping. Whether you ship a thing, don’t ship a thing, ship a WRONG thing, or don’t ship at all. You’ll be labelled as “___ erasure” or “___phobic” or what ever the fuck. Tumblr and its bs laws about what is allowed in a fandom have made me feel ashamed to be a part of some fandoms. 

“OH! Welcome to tumblr where we’re all so open minded and accepting!”

Maaaaan fuck that noise. You all know Tumblr is the farthest thing away from that. I’ve seen so many artists and bloggers that I really look up to (like REALLY look up to) get tons of hate and slag for doing and drawing the shit they enjoy. 

Honestly, for me? When I see an artist who is passionate about a thing, pouring effort and heart into a piece of art, a story, or whatever, I love it. Maybe I don’t agree with the context. Maybe I don’t agree with the setting. But dude, that person is having fun and enjoying the hell out of a game or show. And maybe we can talk about the thing and enjoy ourselves bc HEY! I like the thing too! You are allowed to think for yourself and enjoy your own stuff (well like, only if its not illegal or something, but thats a whole different subject).


But seriously. Tumblr. Like, just chill

(or tv show or whatever)
