They Found it
why would you even do that omg
iamzcaboose submitted it to me, I had no idea where it came from or what.
People on here get so testy about these things, it’s like all people care about on here is notes and shit.

I can’t tell if you’re talking about Aradias, or the people who’ve been stealing this from her.
I don’t even care about notes???? But at least you could have seen that this has already been posted twice already and just reblogged it?
Yeah, hey, when someone manages to contribute exactly what the fandom wants out here? It’s not so hard to give just a little credit? Like, a name. That’s not even hard to do. I’ve seen this pop up twice as a “unique” thing… And it was. When it was first found.
I’ve had it happen with some of the stuff I’ve put out - I don’t watermark my stuff, but I make enough edits that I can recognize when someone takes a gif I’ve made, puts text on it, and posts it as their own, usually lesser quality; this person has done it a couple of times, if I recall the username correctly. I wouldn’t mind if someone suggested putting something funny on it, or just reblogging the image and adding to it, but it leaves a bad taste in my mouth when it’s reposted without any source — sometimes mere minutes after I’ve posted it.
Sure, it’s just a gif or a funny picture, but I like Tumblr for the fact that people can go to the original source and find more stuff along those lines if it’s reblogged. If they see a gif, they might check out my blog to see if I’ve made any others - and what do you know, I have, and I’ve got a link to it. I’m not really concerned about the number of notes or anything, but I try to keep all the stuff I make together, and I try to make it easy for people to find it. I do put time into the stuff I make, and it never feels good to have someone take it and not link back.
