Robert Downey Jr., on having confidence in yourself (x).
He posted this to his facebook with the caption: I call it “Tony Starking.”
PS: NO, THE BLOG IS NOT ENDING.
Right, so, when we talk about entitlement in the fandom, this is a stellar example.
Dear fandom people who don’t know this yet, no one owes you anything. For any reason. Artists do not owe you their hard work, their time, their attention*. Animators do not owe you animations for you to consume. Plushie makers do not owe you work that you consider affordable.
You do not act like a spoiled, entitled brat because someone else does not have the time cater to your needs and desires. Popularity is not some binding contract that requires you to then give something back because someone took .259 seconds to hit the follow button on your blog.
Artists, blog-runners, plushie makers and animators, please never feel pressured by your fans into making content. Unless your fans are directly paying for your content, you don’t owe anyone anything.
*This star exists for the single reason of commissions. If you have paid someone to make art/something for you, then yes, they are required to carry through and finish that work, or refund you. This is the only exception.
I’ve been saying this from the beginning. People need to learn to respect their own free time, because you don’t have as much of it when you get older.
But now everybody and their dog has Patreon and things get a little fuzzy with that. Personally I feel that people have an obligation to do the work they are being paid to do, whether they want to or not. So if you set up a Patreon account for your blog, well then the anonymous whining is suddenly valid. Only if that anonymous has donated, of course.
May I present: my pun Cosplay. (Pcc was awesome)
I DIDN’T GET IT AT FIRST
