No one does research anymore, they just bull their stories, or steal other ideas. :stare:

I'm sorry but it's just how I am, I like a well thought out story, an original story that obviously has had a lot of thought and planning go into it. Not just some thing thrown together like, "I'm gonna do this, because that sounds awesome!" and have absoloutely no logic behind it (unless it's magic or something along that line, you don't have to explain anything there, it's freaking magic. xD Though I would prefer if you did have an explanation. -shot for being overly logical-).

"I CAN PICK LOCKS WITH MY BARE FINGERS ALONE!"
Uh...your fingers can't fit in a keyhole buddy, that's just...what?

That's what I'm getting at. OR OR OR people who take other people's ideas, morph it around a little, and then call it theirs. THAT, THAT is low. That's really low. People can put HOURS of thought and effort into their stories, detailing their characters, thinking of plotlines, researching, doing all they can to make this character BOSS.

Then along comes Hoe McAsscheek. "OH! I like this idea! This idea is cool!" And then proceeds to take it, morph it up, and then call it theirs.

Congratulations, you're an official peice of shi--shot-

COME. UP. WITH. YOUR. OWN. STUFF.
I'm not talking about two ideas that are similar, there's nothing wrong with that. You all know what I'm getting at. PLAGIARISM. Stealing other people's ideas, and calling them your own. I don't care if your my friend, brother, pet, whatever, if you plagerize, you've officially lost my respect for your stories and characters.

I spend HOURS researching and planning out my stories, and half the stuff I research, isn't even mentioned in the story! But it's there in case I need it, and I decide I want to add it in. I'm proud to say that I am dedicated to my stories, and I work to make them the best they can be. And I don't look to other people's work to steal their ideas from them. Sure, you can get inspired, but you're not "inspired" if you're downright just taking the idea. So, how do you think you'd feel, if someone took your idea, that you spent HOURS  working on, and then called it theirs, not even working on it for 20 minutes? You'd feel pretty pissed wouldn't you?

What do people even gain from that anyway? Self satisfaction? What's so satisfying about taking another person's idea? Is it to make YOU look awesome too? Make yourself look original and be the almighty story planner of the world?

You don't look like ANY of those things.
You look unoriginal, uncreative, not to mention insensitive.

So PLEASE, god damn PLEASE, come up with your own stuff, use your own brains for your own thinking. It's not fair to the people who actually work on their stuff for people to just take it and call it theirs.

It's not fair, and it needs to stop.

Done ranting, it had to be said, because I see too much of it on the internet.

My God,Jenn,marry me,have my ovaries and make love to me yesterday while next week :stare: This is just..yes.
:iconclapplz: I couldn't have said it better myself! And you know who and what I've experienced from -w-
Being inspired from an existing fandom or another's original idea,that's fine,that means you enjoy it :D BUT,If you rip off and take someone's work all because in YOUR eyes you think it's not good enough,and you eh~ edit it a little,OMG! YOU'RE FABULOUS! :iconjizzinmypantsplz: No you suck donkey balls,proving your intellect and creativity is that of roadkill. Original work comes STRAIGHT from the heart AND soul.It's something you become attached too.Something you've created and you've watched grow,like raising a child.You are that work's creator,just like it's the embodiment of your ideas and mind :) You're showing your idea to the world,even if it's bad at the beginning,it still deserves to be noticed,and worked on.But taking someone elses,giving your two cents enough to edit it? Wow.When you didnt do SHIT to it? No.Do you know how attached I am to my work and characters? VERY VERY close.They ARE part of me.They are my babies.I try to think and look through their views to actually feel what they feel within the story.Which is the essence of an idea and concept,no?

BUT DEYS YOUR FRIEND U MEANIES

So? The fuck does that have to do with it being okay to take your shit? Oh so because I'm your friend,You have the right to assume you can use MY stuff all because we're friends? OKAY.Just uh....trying to grasp the logic of that.

A stolen idea is no longer an idea,it has no soul or feeling to it.It's merely cut and pasted words and nonsense you gather up from other cuts of other things.You're not creative,you're a complete idiot.With no sense of creativity,you're pathetic.Utterly pathetic.And really you should be kicked out of the society of art and or writing.Regardless of whhhaaaaat you think.If it isnt yours to begin with? Dont use it.Make up your OWN work,especially when you boast about being so original and talented to start with :\

Agreed. Though I have plagiarised when I was younger, but that was more of a shit-&-giggles-story-never-ever-to-be-released-because-I-KNOW-it's-too-similar

But the story you know from me is relatively original -- an idea came from a good friend of mine, but she knows that and doesn't mind, and it's about a character that probably doesn't really come forward in the actual story but is more of a side-back-character.

And then there are two other stories I've been working on, and one is purely what I dreamt (I LOVE my dreams sometimes, they are ideal inspiration), though I hope I'll dream up book two quickly... I wanna know what happens XD And the last one is also from a dream, but it is a little bit based on Doctor Who, and then only a location, and that's probably gonna change around a bit more once the rest of the world starts forming, because right now it's just a space station XD

That's just inspiration, nothing wrong with that. ^^

Your stories are amazing, I love how dramatic you make them (good kind of drama, not high school drama ;p). Especially Tyler and er...was it Lexy? It's totally slipped my mind I'm sorry. ^^; But I love your characters, so well thought out and planned. :)

Thank you for the comment, it's been great hearing from you again Sam. ^^
