It's become extremely apparent to me that people just don't read the description/artists comments on deviations [at least on mine], and it's actually REALLY bothering me, so I'm just going to post this journal and get this out of the way.
After posting chapter 17 of my Hetalia fanfiction In Times of Darkness
[which I'm starting to regret now, actually], I made a semi-lengthy announcement in the description/artists comments that I was no longer planning on writing any fanfiction or making much fanart, since my own personal work's become more of a priority and I haven't had much of a desire to write. I quite clearly stated that I didn't want people who only watched me for my fanfiction to get disappointed or anything because I stopped writing, and that if they were only following me for that reason, they were free to unwatch me so they didn't get crap they didn't want in their messages.
WELL~ Even though said announcement is in the description, I'm still seeing people favourite the fanfiction [even that same chapter!] and then instantly watching me afterwards without favouriting anything else, and that's what's really ticking me off. So I figured I'd let those that actually read what the person posting the damn thing has to say know that I'm planning on moving all or at least most of my fanfiction to storage before my birthday [April 28th] so that people won't start watching me just for my fanfiction anymore.
I don't mean to sound so rude, but I'm honestly starting to get fed up with it. It sounds silly I know, but ugh dsjfhg I'm trying to get rid of or stop things that frustrate me, and this is one of them
I understand that fanart and fanfiction can get you watchers and responses and such rather quickly, but I don't really want to be known or watched JUST for that. I'm working on this original stuff because it's something I want to do WAY more than fanart or anything... and I'm not saying I'll never make fanart again, since I probably will.
It's just that I'm focusing more on my own stuff right now, and I want people to understand that it's what they'll be seeing in their messages instead of fan-content.
Once again, my apologies if this comes off as rude or anything... I'm just getting really tired of it, is all.
You're all still lovely people though, don't forget that~
