I guess my feelings about my own species don't really matter anymore.
I opened them up to share with other people, and yes, while I know a couple of them were flip-floppy thanks to people causing all sorts of Hell about them or the like... it doesn't mean I don't take it personally when people change their character's species without asking, or want to draw them as-is but have no part in the species... when people "re-make" their own versions of my species... that shit is absolutely heartbreaking to me, and it honestly makes me wonder why I share them with people.
I will never say that any of my species are "original" and no one can have anything that looks like them.
I'll never relentlessly harass someone on every social website I'm on, and post call out journals in my groups or on my page.
I don't take characters from people, or force anyone to change them (unless they don't fit the species guidelines).
Because I know what it's like to have to change your character from the way you first designed them. I'll be honest in that I would 110% change my characters back to their original species if I was allowed to, because that's how they were always meant to be. Yeah... they are something different out of respect, and it doesn't feel the same... but I'm /not/ going to just draw them 'as-is' and claim them as something else. That's a fucking dick ass move.
I don't do it to other people, and it really irritates me that people do it to me.
Whatever... I just want Furaffinity to be operational again so I can avoid dA...
