So I was on the F-List see, just browsing through images people are usin' for their characters. What do I end up finding? The last four coloured pictures that Glint and/or Spark have been in. So, I click on an image to bring up the profile and thank God almighty that someone wasn't trying to role-play as Glint and Spark. I would have lost my mind.
That being said... don't do that. Please, please, pleeease don't ever do that. I can't allow it.
Because even someone using the pictures, I looked at them all iffy and said, "No, I can't let that happen."
Milkie? Sure. Milkette? Sure, I don't mind. Dani? Tiffany? Go for it. I never mind if anyone uses images of MY characters as a likeness for theirs - I was in their shoes once way back when. I didn't have art of my characters. I used an old SL avatar to describe how Milkie looked. I relied on little more than words otherwise, and when I did use a picture, it certainly wasn't mine. How hypocritical of me would it be if I turned around and was all, "NO! FU*CKING TAKE THAT DOWN!" D:<
But... Glint and Spark are different. For some reason, I can't even bear the thought of someone playing as them, or like, someone else confusing said player as them. They're characters that are near and dear to my heart, and characters I've developed a canon for. They're my creations, and are as close to me as Milkie, if not more so.
Now, the profile in question wasn't even going to play as them. They were a very Nori-art-centric one that claimed to focus mostly on Mobians. Why Glint and Spark would be on there to begin with is beyond me... but I had to tell 'em to take them down. n_n;
Should they fail to do as I ask, I'll make sure someone does it for them. But I really can't stress enough... I don't mind people even wanting to commission art of the twins - so long as they run it by me first - but I can't condone anyone acting as them. I'd come down on them with the wrath of God, I would.
