Done with GW Fandom assholes!

I am so sick of fantards!!!

Message to all People who never give feedback. but sure as shit are quick on the keyboard to bitch and complain!!!
There has been a news announcement on the main page of my site for weeks, right up top... telling you I had a database error and the fiction was temporarily down.
NO ONE FUCKING READS IT!!!!
But they send e-mails, contact forms and leave forum topics whining and complaining about it!!!
Demanding answers when they already had one if they'd READ THE FRONT FUCKING PAGE!!!


I'm getting really tired of people not reading this main page about the fiction database problem and emailing, demanding and complaining they can't access three year old fanfiction.

 

You guys are not making me want to even put it back up at all!!

Good Grief, I write other things too, but the only thing people give a damn about

is ancient fanfiction.

 

The demands in my e-mail to "hurry up"

or the "WHERE"S THE FANFIC WAHHHHH!" e-mails have grated on my LAST NERVE.

 

No one bothered to read the main page news announcement before whining and complaining.

Guess what folks? You've just succeeded in totally pissing me off. You've had the opposite effect.

I am not here to pander to your free entertainment fixes!

 

I am human too and not a machine to churn out hard work for you not to say thanks and only complain if it's NOT UP ON THE INTARDNET WHEN YOU WANT IT!

 

I'm done. Fanfiction can rest in peace forever. I'm not here to provide you fiction you don't ever say thank you for, but sure as shit speak up when it's not available when you want it.

 

I am not Comcast On Demand

I am not TIVO

 

I am a person, I wrote a story you liked and until you couldn't read it you finally said something and then it was only to demand I put it back up ASAP.

 

 

No thank you, no please, nothing remotely polite.

 

Fanfiction is dead, period. I have absolutely no desire anymore to share when all I get out of it is headaches.

*pets* And people wonder why I stopped writing it. I don't blame you in the slightest, neesan. I STILL get emails wondering when the next chapter of Creature of the Wood is coming out.

O_o;;

I stopped writing it like five years ago.

Even after I posted this?
I had four more, who READ THIS RANT
and *STILL* asked about fanfic going back up!

"like I'm confused are you gonna put it up or not?" stuff.


I finally went "FUCK IT ALL TO HELL" and spent 14 HOURS just on the fanfic section so they will stop e-mailing me every god damn day whining!

There're always a few who make the rest of us look bad. Sorry that happened to you, D. *HUGE HUGS*

It's always the few that are the most vocal and annoying.
If the fandom were full of sharons and Janas and windors and suzus etc... I might still have a muse.

The funniest and SADDEST part?

Yes, I agree with Sharon1x2. Some people do ruin it for other people. Though I will be sad that you are not writing fanfiction again, I do understand, and I won't complain. I hope you feel better soon. *hugs*

I was actually wondering when you were going to pull out of the fandom ^^;. As much as we loved the show and the manga, the fantards that exhist HEAVILY in the GW fandom are just too damn fucking OBNOXIOUS. They make the good fans look bad and ruin things for everyone.

Then again, it's the fantards whom have no lives yet or whom never did. A semi decent paying job? Careers? Lives off of a computer and the intraweb? Nope.

Hell, unless someone commissions me, I won't even touch Gundam Wing fanart again.

Awws, no more fanfiction? Darn, and there were some I'd have loved to see finished.

...okay, the only one I can remember off the top of my head is Bartlick Boys. But you said you were going to redo it as an original, right? So that's just as good!

Are you going to be putting back up the fanfiction? I never really read it very often, but it was nice to know it was there, in case I got a sudden craving to read some GW fic.

And on the main page... Until a few days ago, I hadn't seen the main site for years. I linked straight to the fanfic/originalfic archive. I'd forgotten it even existed. But I've got it linked now, so I'll check in at the site every now and then to see whats new in the announcements.

And on the archive problem - I hope you get it fixed okay. I actually thought that nobody had said anything about it yet! And you seemed so busy redesigning your art galleries and stuff, I figured you might not have noticed.

It no news that the writing of new fanfiction has been dead for years. I can't believe you were holding out for it. O_o

I'm talking about the old stuff.

Hell, I can't even tell you the last time I read GW fanfic (other than Gundam Legends). I pulled out of fandom so long ago and haven't looked back. Well, I have but that's not the point! I'm sorry that you have to go through this when you definitely shouldn't. Let the fucktards write their own fanfics. Hell, the fandom has gone downhill as it is. No one will notice the difference.

God, how stupid can people be? Do they even understand that you are doing them a FAVOR by even allowing them to look at your art or fanfiction, and it is not even remotely a "right"? Bakas!

That said, I may have sent some of them your way. Whenever someone mentions recs, I always tell them to read everything on your website.

Of course, the "pretty-please-great-Fablespinner-I-grovel-at-your-feet" should have been a given to anyone wanting to read work off your website.

Personally, I love when you rework your fanfiction into original fiction just as much. If it were legal to pay for fanfiction though, I would so buy books of your GW fanfiction!

Too bad fandom sucks!

I don't expect groveling... I just thought courtesy would be nice. It's the demands, the whining and the bitching from total strangers that fills my inbox that makes the vein in my eye twitch.

I never heard DICK from them in years... but take down the free reading and WHAM there they are, in droves, yelling at me to "fix it now"

I guess I wouldn't be so perturbed if these same people maybe once in the past 6 years might have sent a NICE e-mail to me. But nope... nothing. They say fuck all until they can't get their fix and then demand I supply it poste haste without a please or a thank you attached.

That's what is irritating about fantards.
They never think about the person behind the fic/pic
just that they get it all for free, now.

I don't want nor expect adoration..
just the occasional polite note would be more than appreciated.

But judging from my past experience in fandom, it just does not happen. (At least to me, I'm sure others are luckier.) I can name about 12-15 people who consistently act like adults and are respectful...
it's always the same who comment on my stuff.

the rest of my e-mails are all demands from strange lurking screennames who never reply until they want something.

I've just had it with rude people.

Aw... :( *huggles* Don't let the idiots get you down. They're just that, idiots. I joined the GW Fandom on your stuff, never got much farther than reading and commenting on the occasional fic (both yours and others) and never really got into the total obsession. I love your stuff - - both fanfiction and original - - and I'm sorry to hear that idiotic and insane fans ruined the experience for the rest of us, but especially that they ruined it for you! Your work is great, and you don't deserve to be heckled when you're working on making a great looking, smoothly running website for the fans. The irony of that just boggles my mind. *kicks the idiots*

>.< IDIOTS! (Or, as I'm sure they'd say as GW rabid fans, BAKAS! -.-)

Wow. That's just...depressingly stupid. *another kick to the idiots*

My god, you're way too nice to those idiots. Fourteen hours of your life? *kicks them again*

At least now you're done with them. If they ask you for updates, totally direct them my way so I can kick 'em, individually, too. >.<

((I swear, I'm not usually this violent. But my idiot tolerance has been decreasing rapidly.))
