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
"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.
