((Well…..this is awkward. I did that “Press J and then Shift+ some other letter” trick and I unknowingly reblogged a ton of stuff that was on my dash at the time. Smooth trickery there, Tumblr. Smooth.))
Slightly late by about a week, but I have been a part of Tumblr for an entire year now.
I joined the Dynasty Warrior Ask Community after stumbling upon Ask Cao Pi and Ask Sima Yi’s blog in search of fanart. I run Ask Guo Huai and Ask Queen Myrrah along with quite a few other side blogs. I’ve made lots of friends and I love this site to death. I am aware that I haven’t been artistically active recently and I hope to change that around (Marcus keeps telling everyone that I’m dead). I love and thank all of my followers for all of my blogs and I look forward to having more fun.
To the anon that thinks Ask Zhong Hui’s blog is too OOC - Get out!
If you’re complaining about Zhong Hui flirting with Jiang Wei then you’re extremely late to that party because that’s been a reoccurring event in their blog. Also the rose in the mouth. That’s been done before on their blog. A lot of our spins on the DW cast comes from interacting with each other and our personal touches.
You want an OOC blog you come mess with mine! I’m an adoptive parent and a vampire. I will dine on your anon blood if I see you complain about one of us not meeting your expectations.
((Putting the rest of my shipping questions aside because it’s obvious they’re one of the causes for my lack of posts. Plus from the look of my recent posts my drawings are in need of serious redemption style wise.
Who remembers TMI Tuesday?! Happy Tuesday everyone.))
Put this on my personal first. I’m gonna do some fanart expressing my rage because I knew that this bill would threaten our freedom to post fanart online!
Time is a ticking away and fanart will have to wait till I have more luxury time. In all honesty I’d love to make a video in cosplay to this protest. Why? because if this SOPA manages to pass this time around I can kiss my online fanart and cosplay days goodbye. Might as well spend it doing what I do best.
I did find that the e-mail I sent to my representative last month when SOPA was trying to pass was replied to me with a general “Thank You for your e-mail” response. However I saw that in this reply it had an option to write back to my representative. So I took the time to write this as SOPA is not yet dead.
“I am aware that even though SOPA did not pass last month that Congress is still trying to pass a revised version of this act. However the potential for abuse still remains should SOPA pass into law. I know that the government is trying to find a solution to stop online piracy. But censoring the internet seems to have more cons than it does pros. Yes it would be effective in stopping web users from viewing and downloading copyrighted material that neither party genuinely purchased. Yet the censorship would grant the government power to censor content that we as Americans would have never known was “rogue” content or not. I can see the potential for censoring content that is not “politically correct” or in the extreme case scenario the web would be censored in expression of religious beliefs. Please do not put our freedom of expression in jeopardy by allowing SOPA to pass. If our now major form of communication, the internet, is censored then are we really worth calling ourselves Americans?”
What I post on the internet as far as fanart goes would probably not be attacked by this bill, should it pass, immediately. However the government would have the power to censor anything to the likeness of copyrighted media and once it is blocked the rest of the internet users would be non the wiser as to what the content truly was (unless of course they managed to see it before it was censored). My main reason for being on the internet - to share my fanart with other artists - would be at jeopardy! The RP and the Ask Dynasty Warriors communities could eventually be censored. No we have never claimed to ever own any of the Koei franchise. We are not out to make money off of it. We’re just fans that are appreciating what we love and socializing with others that share our same interests.
Not only could they censor what we users post but it would threaten the sites that we use to post our stuff on. These sites, scared for their own business on the internet, would greatly increase their internal censorship and tighten the rules and regulations. Sites like Tumblr which has countless posts that show images from media & entertainment and contain urls to other sites would be greatly at risk if SOPA passes.
