Bye-bye LeeGaa

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 13, 2012, 1:07 AM
  • Mood: Pity
Hey everybody~ I hope all of you are doing well. I'm doing okay, there isn't too much stress or anything atm.^^ But anyway.

I have noticed that there's this some sort of LeeGaa/GaaLee WAR going on. People fight over who should be on the top in this pairing and say a lot of nasty stuff to each other. (I'm not naming anyone here, or blaming either.) I happen to like LeeGaa (Lee-seme, Gaara-uke) so apparently I'm on this LeeGaa "side".

I wouldn't mind this, but I have got my own part in this war, without nobody asking me. Sometimes people stop reading my Doujinshi "Start Over" because they notice it has uke Gaara in it. I don't get why, especially because my doujins don't involve sex or any other extreme behaviour. But it's still ok with me, as long as people don't start bitching at me about it, and doesn't really have even much to do with this war now.

Because there are still GaaLee fans who read my Doujinshi, and I don't mind that at all. If people like it, I just say thanks and I hope you will keep on reading it. I'm not separating my readers to "LeeGaa fans" and "No-LeeGaa fans" or anything. But it seems like some other people are.

I was surprised and annoyed to see that some of the people who have commented on my work have received replies like "why are you reading this Doujinshi because you like Lee-uke, GaaLee is shit, you suck, etc." I mean what the hell? The comic isn't about just some pairing, it's a piece of art I have produced to entertain others and myself. It's stupid if people use their energy for bashing others on my page when I put my art here so it could be read, viewed and reviewed.

I find all of this rather odd and I have never seen anything like this in any other fandom. Sure there are people who talk crap on deviations about other pairings and characters but this is different. This seems to be so freaking serious issue to some people, and I first found it just comic. Now I find it ridiculous. And I have decided something.

I don't want to be a part of this fandom if it's build on hate and bashing of the same characters it loves and people who have done nothing wrong and who are amazing artists and people. I really don't.

Basically this would mean that I stopped drawing Start Over for good and wouldn't make any more LeeGaa pics for a long while, nor watch other works or read fics or be a part of group activity. If this makes me some kind of "traitor", then okay. You're free to say what's on your mind, but so am I, and especially on my own page which should focus on my art and things I like.

So if you want to fight this, please do it somewhere else and not on my page, and don't drag me into it because I don't want to be a part of it. I choose myself what I like, who are my friends, and what I do. I don't want to belong to a hateful fandom. I have plenty of hate in my life already and I want to get rid of it, too.

But in the end, I'm not going to stop drawing StOve. There are more people who are not involved in this than people who are, so it wouldn't be good to anyone. I just want to be left alone about this issue.

I don't know when I will upload the next page, or even when I will stat drawing it. There isn't any inspiration of LeeGaa for me here, since everybody's drawing/writing something else or are inactive nowadays. Or focus on what they hate instead of what they love. And I don't get my inspiration for this from hate.

Sincerely, Eliza

You don't have to worry about that anymore, I've found a balance on my own so things are ok. I still come across with some crap but I can ignore it now and people don't harrass each other in front of me anymore. I also update my doujinshi when I have time and motivation.:) so no worries~

Sorry for my bad english ):

Well honey honestly, You don't draw much LeeGaara lately, especially of Start Over. Maybe because you meet other fandoms more nice for you (of course that is understandable and respectable), but, this issue among LeeGaara and GaaLee should not be important if you are a really fan. I mean, the "war" LeeGaara vs GaaLee, always existed and will exist, I think than you have a "artistic block" respect to LeeGaara and for that reason took that resolucion. Or well, the LeeGaara simply lost the magic for you, and this "war" is only a excuse for leave Start Over, is my opinion. Whatever, is your decision. Good luck.

It's okay, I understand your English just fine.^^

Yeah, I haven't drawn much mostly because I have been busy in "real life", and I can't always find time. I honestly don't want to leave this fandom and I'm sorry and sad if it seems like I'm using other people as an excuse to run away. I wouldn't do that.
I also know that the debate between LeeGaa and GaaLee has been going on loooooong, but it lately people have been nasty to each other on my page, and I don't approve of it. That's why I wrote this journal in first place.

Yeah, everybody have "real life" and a lot of job, believe me. But, only is my opinion: You love a fandom? The others' issues aren't important. However, you have reasons and I hope that you're satisfied with them, is the only significant :)
