Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.
Or the old “can you ask a manager?”
The worst offense comes from the fact that people did this without my /explicit/ permission. Gaining more eyes for my work is something I appreciate, but not if it is done without my consent.
I don’t like those pages that share my art without permission even if they credit properly, because those who see my works through a second party will perceive an even less personal connection to me, the artist, and they will have a more lax conscience about taking those images and reposting them on even more websites - and likely without source.
I’ve had my name erased from far too many of my works for me to be unfazed by this. Over the years I’ve had people come to me, saying, “OMG I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WERE THE ARTIST OF THIS PICTURE I’VE SEEN FLOATING AROUND /EVERYWHERE/ ON THE INTERNET" And it is not a compliment. It’s basically saying to me that some assholes went and took my art and erased my identity as the creator from it.
And it’s not just reposts/reprints - I’ve seen my work stolen and put on mugs, posters, bootleg dvd covers being SOLD on websites and actual, physical STORES and it is sickening.
I used to be the type of artist who loved to upload high quality resolutions of my pictures so that other people can see the details better- but there are people who have and will take advantage of these things and steal my efforts and work for cheap ass attention, pageviews, notes, faves, followers, money - I don’t fucking know, the list goes on.
It’s exhausting, it’s a big reason I stopped being active on deviantArt, a big reason a lot of my drawings are ridiculously self-indulgent as opposed to “drawing what a lot of my watchers/followers want to see.”
So no, I really could care less about free commercial and I sincerely doubt many of the other artists from pixiv / tumblr / dA would even approve their work being reprinted without consent. Just because you think you’d be okay with it does not by default make it the general consensus.

I just checked my final schedule from Taco Bell and I’m working just shy of 40 hours this week.
even when I only had this one job and working in the summer I only had 35 hours at most.
WELL at least I know that 1) I’m going out with a bang instead of a whimper and 2) I’m going to be working over 60 hours this week.
LET’S DO THIS.
“But I feel like [the Rin we see now] is the real Rin—that this is the Rin he would’ve grown into if, as a child, he hadn’t gotten lost the way he did and had grown up normally. Rather, the Season 1 Rin was an outlier.” (x)
Everyone is freaking out about how ‘sudden’ Haru’s change of heart is and I think they’re failing to realize something pretty important. Haru swimming professionally is something that’s been discussed since the beginning of the season, so its obviously something he was thinking about.
He probably didn’t have this HUGE sour taste in his mouth for competitive swimming, it was likely just one or two things stressing him out that he couldn’t get out of his head. If he hated competitive swimming so much, he wouldn’t have done it since he was a child, and then again in highschool. Its obviously something he enjoys, the context of adulthood was just making the whole thing stressful for him.
And I know everyone is like “wtf shiny pool, thats what changed his mind?”
NO. IT WAS NOT THE POOL. IT WAS HARU BEING GIVEN A CALM OPTION TO SWIM NEXT TO PROFESSIONAL SWIMMERS. He made the conscious choice to do so, thereby eliminating his stress.
Then, seeing the really nice Australian swimmer, Haru was able to see someone who is genuinely happy in his career path and obviously loves to swim.
HARU’S REALISATION FADES FROM THE SWIMMER DIVING, NOT FROM LOOKING AT THE POOL.
PLEASE DO NOT REDUCE IT TO THAT.
SEEING OTHERS SWIM IS A VERY PROFOUND EXPERIENCE FOR HIM AND THAT IS PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE WRITING.
Sometimes seeing something like that (if you have an emotional attachment to the action) really can make you snap into a certain mindset, especially when its the first time you’ve been able to look at a situation without the weight of stress. Furthermore, I don’t think Haru is not so much ABSOLUTELY sure that he will be happy as much as a competitive swimmer as much as he now knows that it is POSSIBLE and he was able to see that the world like Rin does.
HIS PROBLEM HAS NOT BEEN MAGICALLY FIXED, what has happened is that Haru now feels he has a chance. To me thats actually pretty profound…
