Dear god. The wanking over The Last Airbender movie in [livejournal.com profile] katara_zuko and everywhere else on LJ today (o hai random comms suddenly paying attention to this fandom, wtf) is driving me nuts. How many posts are we going to have about "racefail" (which there WAS, yes, we've known for quite a while already) and "Ebert says it sucks" and "don't go see this, or else you're stupid".

Be aware now, if any of you tell me not to see it, simply because of what you've heard or you've seen it yourself and disliked it, I will remove you from my friendslist. I do not feel as though you are doing me a "favor" by telling me to believe something without having seen it with my own eyes first. Do me the courtesy of viewing it like those of you that have seen it have done, and I'll reserve my judgment of the film once I've managed to take it in for myself, not by second-hand info.

Apologies if this sounds harsh, but I have had just about enough of the self-righteousness of LJ, today.

Holy hell, I am laughing my ass off at Nick Simmons (son of rocker Gene Simmons), who is responsible for blatantly plagiarizing Kubo Tite's Bleach manga. Like, tracing it.

He's editing his Wiki page about it, too. You can click on the IP address and see his name.

Too much shitty plagiarism goes on rampantly, not only in the entertainment industry but in fandom especially. Just yesterday I was wheedled by an annoying little fanbrat who wanted me to give the "thumbs up" for her to copypasta my Bleach UlquiHime lemon, "Lip Service", directly into her story. Verbatim.

Uh, no. Write a sequel, rewrite the whole damn scene in your own words, if you have to, but don't fucking copy my writing word for word. Seriously? That's just fucking lazy. You're not even trying.


ETA: Her rationale for doing this:

"My thought was this, 'Hmm...what if I put this story together with that one...WOW, THAT WAS AWESOME!'...and I thought it'd be neat to share it with others, ya know? My story idea would never have taken off if I didn't cut and paste and come up with something different, cool, and incredbily interesting.

Tell you what? What if I publish it..and if you REALLY HATE what I did, I'll take it down...the thing is, after awhile, fan-fics fall out of circulation as the newer stories throw the older ones farther and farther down the foodchain."



...Yeah, because copypasta'ing two different (already published) stories together that you didn't write is AWESOME, like how PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE GOT THROWN TOGETHER THAT ONE TIME

AND MY STORY IS LOW ON THE FOODCHAIN ANYWAY, SO WHAT THE HELL AMIRITE???!!!!!????!!!!!

:D


Edit #2 for the Nick Simmons thing: Now people are posting shit on his DA account...






I love the internets.

This post pisses me off.

Suki was a welcome addition to the Gaang. It's the pastede-on addition of Mai at the end, to the core group, that left the most sour taste in my mouth.

Ugh.
