Amidst all the bad feelings I've been trying to shake off the past month, I did something I don't often do, and doodled up some random fanart for someone else. I had a moment of good cheer and Weaselgrease happened to come to mind as someone who had been nice to me, and I liked his character Weylen, so I just doodled up a few Weylen faces as a bit of gift art. I also did two headshots of Weylen's father, who, in my completely irrational insanity, I had simply assumed also belonged to Weaselgrease. Shame on me for making such an incredibly unreasonable assumption that character A's father would also belong to the guy who owned character A.
- no, this is not the Disney character somehow come to life, this is a guy who has simply chosen this established Disney character as his persona - chose to take it as a personal affront to him that I did gift art for someone I liked using a character that is apparently "partially" his (referring to Weylen's dad, not the Disney character MadDog, which I have not seen him claim ownership of, although there was a point when Wolfie commissioned a piece of artwork with the MadDog character and his own, and this guy forced that arranged commission to change because he didn't want to see MadDog in any 'pedo shit'). Apparently my simply not knowing that Weylen's father was partially owned by someone else is the same as him taking my characters he knows are fully my own and using them to piss me off. It's apparently also so much worse than treating an established corporate-owned character as if it were your own personal avatar. He made that comment, I got pissed at this psycho asshole ONCE AGAIN taking something I did that had absolutely nothing to do with him as far as I knew when I did it, and chosen to twist it into a direct personal wrong by me against him.
By the way, I have him blocked, and he has me blocked, so I'm not sure how he was able to respond to my months-old comment, ironically, on the journal where I had finally agreed to just fucking forget all his crazy shit despite him doing backflips to avoid apologizing for the only thing I ever wanted an apology from him for. Tthat journal also contains me breaking down for him step by step, with fucking time stamps, the initial garbage he caused between us - a stupid waste of my time that I only went to the bother of doing because this asshole is a friend of a friend of my mate and I wanted the air cleared before they were to be living locally to us to spare the people stuck between us a hassle because I sure as hell wasn't going to have this nutjob in my fucking house without making it clear to him where he crossed the line with me.
Since I couldn't respond to him, I checked with Weaselgrease, confirmed which characters were whose, and said I wouldn't be drawing any of them again until such time as MadDog had no further association with them.
And I considered the bullshit closed.
Now he's gone and commented to me yet again on the same journal, saying the same shit, talking the same crap, and I just don't fucking feel like biting my tongue. Been doing that for a month for more relevant and substantial shit, I don't have it in me to hold back for the sake of this fucking pest. I'd never said a single unkind word to this fucking psycho before he started losing his shit at me and disrespecting me in a journal fucking years ago, and since then he has obsessively clung to these three instances of me doing shit that has fuck-all to do with him, and him treating them like me intentionally and knowingly targeting him specifically with intentional unprovoked personal assault.
In response to this journal, in which I acknowledge that MadDog owns Jarvis, and that I will not draw Jarvis again, in which I make NUMEROUS responses to users both reiterating that he DOES have the right to require permission to use that character DESPITE the hypocrisy of it coming from someone using a Disney character as an avatar AND that I acknowledged this request anyway because I respect creators' rights, MadDog posts this journal titled Of created characters, rights to said characters, and Wolfblade's being unable to respect this.
I linked you to the comment in which he "told Wolfblade to please check with me before using it," which I am sure any of you can see was more about him trying to continue an unrelated fight than about the actual supposed offense of me using a character I thought belonged to someone else.
He says "Wolfblade did not respond appropriately to my request" though I have no idea how he wanted me to respond. He insists that nobody else get involved, he ignored WG telling him I didn't know it was his character, he left me no way of telling him directly that I'd not draw the character again.
His journal is bitter little bullshit baw because he perceives me as popufur so I must be evil, and I am so wrong for venting or saying anything about anyone, all because I didn't do what he wanted me to when he wanted to use my popufur status to have me make a big deal of something HE was pissed by.
What was that, MadDog? Oh yeah. Arcturus posted a journal that was a verifiable lie. You posted comments exposing his lie. He deleted those comments to protect his lie.
Just as you've deleted comments on your journal there linking you back to the proof right here that had already nullified that whole journal before you even posted it.
fucking bless you, dude, has actually gone through the whole backstory of this ridiculous mess (yes, it has been absolutely ridiculous, I don't deny that for a second) and posted this fucking brilliant summation of this whole retarded saga of insanity RIGHT HERE with links and everything, so anyone who likes a good soap-opera level drama can have a good long read and make their own judgments based on who has actually said what. Like that sexy sexy man from Reading Rainbow says; "You don't have to take MY word for it."
And now, I'm done. He's a delusional child poking at me with a stick through a hole in the fence I'd put up and he just happened to poke me twice at a time when I am dealing with too much other shit to have had enough restraint to ignore more than the first poke. I told him yesterday I was done, I wouldn't be responding to him further, he said 'yeah we're best off just not talking,' and then he still comments to me through the stupid block loophole again anyways. I'm going back to stressing over shit far more significant to stress about, and resuming ignoring him. Once again, I'm ending it, I'm going to try to ignore any further instigations from him, and it's over until the next time he manages to try to re-ignite it when I've already been primed by a dozen other things, as just unfortunately happened to be the case this time.
Thank you all for your encouragement and reassurance, most of all thank everyone who actually bothered looking out the window for yourself and confirming for me that yes, the sky is in fact blue. XD I'm sorry for the distraction and unpleasantness. I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around the crap I'd been trying to deal with already when this distraction happened, but do expect more streams, an announcement on some projects I'm going to be getting back to now, and maybe even some actual art posted ( XD ) before too much longer.
To anyone who felt this was somehow forced upon you, or that me venting about this repeat instigator I've had to deal with was dragging you into anything against your will (as has been suggested), well, there's the unwatch button over there that pretty much takes away my ability to present you with the choice of reading the words I throw out there, which was all I could have done to you in the first place. If someone expressing their frustrations and putting out something besides just porn bothers you that much, it's a pretty safe bet you'll be MUCH happier without me on your watchlist. :3
