Probably not what I’m supposed to focus on, but Aly, you have an amazing posture. I know how badly I’d be slouching on that seat…
I know, not the point of this, but since I speak only rudimentary Italian, well ^^
Of course the cosplays look amazing, but I just wanted to tell you the other thing too ^^

Ahah oh gosh this is so sweet! Thank you xD

The thought that after all you are no one, really.


To be honest coming back home was not that great… I feel on me a heavy bad feel.
Thinking about a serious hiatus, thinking about doing something with my life but what? I know I will end up coming back here posting dam art, fan art, after 3 days…

Oh, but you are someone! You are Aly, a super nice girl who doesn’t mind talking to me, who doesn’t mind when I chime in every now and then. You are the one who makes me smile with your art, who inspires me, the one who is so quirkily creative that you have those adorable dwarves not just as dwarves but as nekos and fauns (and I think Kíli was a squirrel once?).

I’m sorry you’re feeling down atm. And I sincerely hope you’ll find your light again. Take all the time you need, you deserve to look after yourself, first.

Oh, and I got the little magnets! Thranduil has found his home with a good friend of mine (and she was so very happy =D), Kíli is on his way to his new companion, and Thorin and Fíli have taken up residence in my wallet, where Thorin jealously guards my coins (and glares at me whenever I think of spending too much!) while Fíli lounges in the other compartement with the stamps and pieces of fabric and a couple of emeralds and rubies in the rough (don’t look at me, I know my wallet is weird… :p)

So, and now close your eyes, take a deep breath and feel thoroughly hugged. Thank you for your work, and don’t forget to always do what YOU are comfortable with. You will have our support =D

Thank you :’)
Really, truly, thanks for this message <3

To be honest coming back home was not that great… I feel on me a heavy bad feel.
Thinking about a serious hiatus, thinking about doing something with my life but what? I know I will end up coming back here posting dam art, fan art, after 3 days of 4… and you know what? Because is what I do, in a day I do several stuff, in a week I do several stuff that normally includes drawing, cosplaying, sewing and seeing friend and boyfriend.
My life, and I can’t change it.

I see a lot of fan artist leaving for weeks, and truly leaving, then coming back and a lot, oh a lot of people cheering and numbers numbers in my eyes, numbers that are just numbers, they defines me, mediocre, low level, high level, who define this? You define this by yourself and I still feel stuck in the middle of something, something I can’t change because the entire world is walking with me, and if I did 10 steps the world may do 9, 10 or 11.
Nothing is changing, nothing can change for now, not until I’m stuck in my mind.

Oh me and my brain, working and thinking and never be enough, never, never feel enough “something”.
I’d love to share the experience of my thought with someone, all the fears and the way you been insecure, worst than everyone sometimes… it looks stupid to me and it will look extremely stupid from there, but drawing means be judged, numbers means be judged, other artists means be judged, everything is judging you and sometimes this is just too much.

And after the few followers I gained recently, now posting the fucking stuff of instagram I lost 5 followers, this is totally telling me “I’m here only for art, don’t care the fuck is happening to you”, that is… oh great.
I know that the ones who remains are the ones that means a lot for me, the ones who cares and about I care, but hey remember? JUDGED… and I feel so damn judged today.

Someone? AlyTheKitten is not someone, is just another freak of the web.

Boom.

Sleeping now, sorry for this shit, I feel bad.

AlyTheKitten is my favorite cosplayer.

AlyTheKitten has amazing fashion designs.

AlyTheKitten is my favorite hobbit artist!

AlyTheKitten is this spectacular woman who I admire.

You’re not “another freak on the web”. I know we don’t talk  But I still regard you as my friend. 

And so do I, we should talk more because is the same for me, thank you for your words :’)

it is true.  people are not online for anyone but themselves.  sometimes u make friends and they are the ones to comfort u when u need.  i am having the same issue with the whole ‘life’ part.  im going to take time off work to do nothing but fanart.  

When i listen to weta’s richard taylor talk how he turned his hobby into a career.  Even my friend is a cosplayer, she is fucking getting paid for that now because the people of this show saw it and like her now she is their mascot.  It’s like wow i can do that to if i just stop doing the shit i hate.

i’ve drifted away from the fandom in that i dont draw anyone’s pairing anymore because i just dont care.  im tired and stressed out and whatever i do will be liked for a moment and someone else will replace me.  so i just do what i will for myself.  if i feel charitable again i will but for now no.

especially, like u, we have these artist we see and follow.  we love them and their work is great and everyone likes it but when it comes to my work (at least for me this gets me most depress)  my work is always crap.  I try to change it to cater to different taste but it’s always crap because i can’t have that ‘feeling’ or i dont ever get that ‘emotion’.  im heartless i guess so i have to accept i’ll always be the outcast of social circles.

i just cheer people up, thats all tumblr seems to know me for at least.

this wasn’t a cheerful post……soooooooooo……

fili and kili having sneaky sex at home.  Thorin knows they are always getting down on each other because they keep him awake with their romping.  He hides by the door waiting for the perfect moment and bursts in

WHAT DO YOU TWO THINK YOUR DOING!!!!

fili and kili freak and fall out of bed like HOLY FUCK WAHT OMG YNCLE AH!

Their almost traumatized in shock and the look of their horrified lil faces pleases thorin and he leaves laughing.

fili and kili are just on the floor, naked, shriveled up, and hyperventalating.  They still don’t know wtf happened and the next day they have the most displeased looks on their face.  One because they are really tired and two because it took forever to calm down.

They glare and thorin quietly and when dis disappears for a moment thorin just says.

"I’ll tell your mother." 

Darling you always know how to let me smile :’)
And I meant to answer to this before, but then a mess happened xD

You have always the right words in the right moment

:-( So sorry this shit happened, Aly :-( What can I say? I know it sounds hollow: those followers, their loss; those assholes - don’t give a shit. Sometimes you just can’t pretend you don’t give a shit. My advice: Go on a break and do something nice just for you. A shopping trip, a day just for you with nice things around you; a night out with friends - it won’t make the assholes go away, unfortunately, but it’ll make you feel a little better (I hope). Fingers crossed X

I meant to answer before now… well… >U>’
Now all I can say is thank you, because you are a wonderful wonderful person :’) <3

Right…

So, I love both vickymaus and alythekitten, and don’t want them to get into an argument because they’re both my friends and both are lovely beings, and I know no one wanted to insult the other, but there is a problem between fandom artists that needs to be talked about.

It’s true that it’s a bit unfair to unfold the entire discussion on Aly’s post because that DOES make it look personal, so here’s a solution.

Please use this post - yes, this one right here - to voice your opinion. I don’t mind, I’m neutral in this, reblog it a thousand times with your opinion if you like.

Just to sum it up, the basic problem is that Aly feels disconnected with fandom and fandom artists in general, missing other people’s input and feeling lonely; while Vicky thinks it’s hard for “not so widely known artists” (TM) to find recognition in the shadow of the “bigger names”.

Everything settled? Alright? Remember, this is about ART and FANDOM, not about the persons behind. Please refrain from sending Anon messages to anyone because that doesn’t help at all. Are we clear? Okay, shoot away :-)

(for those who aren’t interested, just blacklist ‘fanart discussion’).

First, thank to Blue that is always so kind and nice with everyone, this is the best solution and I want to personally say thank you, because my blog is a real mess, in the last hour it turned into a total mess, so gonna delete all the reblogs later.
I’m gonna join this conversation with my second account.

Then dwarfsmut as always found proper words in my head and once again explained my point, HERE I invite to read what she wrote because it can’t be express any better, not from me for sure >u>’

In the last months I’ve been disconnected a lot, lost some buddies I used to talk with every day, some are no longer in the fandom or are inactive at the moment (kyuubikun, outosumi joyslash for example), over the fact that they were/are fan artists from the fandom they all are my friends and I unconsciously miss them all.

I know that there are active fan artists in the fandom and vickymaus and miusart are part of them, even drakonizuka and a tons of name I can’t remember right now because it’s 4.00 am here… Some of us started earlier, Kaciart has been here since for even and god knows how many followers she may have now, I’m here since a year and half, soon or later a person will see me in that amount of time, I posted a lot especially last year, I got my “boom” for followers last year and the “boom” of notes recently, but I remember when I got only 14 notes for pic, it was demotivating but I didn’t give up, and you are not giving up, just like me.

I started with some buddies that are no longer in the fandom, or are multifandom and no longer care about this one, I miss them and I remember the old crew, and not for saying “we are better” but I had my best time with them, and Vicky we know each other since months and months and there was a time I remember, we talked a lot… but now we are no longer interacting that much, maybe the fault is mine, university destroyed me this year and I got issues with my thesis, so in case was my fault I say sorry, I didn’t wanted this to happen.

If there is something I can do, we can do I want to do it.

Today I was… well wondering about who is still into the fandom, actively drawing, writing and creating, because our poor fandom is dead and… deader?
I can see a lot of writers are still writing a lot, AUs or not AUs, but I can see a lot of fan fic every week, and well this is just great.

But fan art, I’m confused because sometimes I feel so lonely with my ship…
I have Fili and Kili in my heart in a canon and fanon way and I just can’t help myself, it never happened to me before to love a book/film and his character that deeply, that longer and sometimes I feel weird for that.
The point is that I see pretty everyone in other fandoms, in multifandoms while I just can’t leave this drowning ship.

I can’t understand if it feel good or bad, right or wrong, I’m so confused right now because I see so many things, facts, decisions, opinions around me and I find myself not having any.

Summer time gave me great times, but it was just like a dream, now I’m awake and alone in my home as usual, staring at the screen with the pen in my hand and not doing nothing because, uh, after all the routine is not giving me any inspiration as usual ò_ò

***

Well, let’s be pro-positive then.
I need some distraction like films or telefilms, and if you are going to suggest “Guardian of Galaxy”, well my shitty country will allow our poor italians to watch the movie on 16 FUCKING OCTOBER 2014… TOO BAD.
I’m going to watch How to train your dragon 2 tomorrow and I have a lot of expectations about that movie, hopefully I will create a Fili and Kili in that viking style tomorrow…
But I’m sure there is more gold out there and I need some suggestions from you guys: surprise me please <3

Now I’m gonna watch Cast Away because i’m a nidiot <3

Well, excuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me.

No, seriously, I don’t wanna put shit on you, I know you’ve had more than enough lately, but I would just like to point myself out and say “HEY, HELLO, YES, VICKYMAUS HERE  (aka mausart now too), I HAVE DONE 7 FILI AND KILI DRAWINGS IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS”
…do you even check the tags?? Yeah, yes, I know you’ve been on vacation, but dude, it feels like being totally ignored while I’m sailing the same ship…

And you know what, marisdrawings draws them often too, and miusart used to draw them too until she got fed up with the fandom’s attitude. “What attitude are you talking about, maus, the fuck??” Well, the attitude that only a few of you seem to get the fandom’s attention. I don’t quite get it yet, but some of us draw them, often putting a lot of effort into it (not saying you don’t do this, ok?), and people hardly notice, unless one of those who DO get the fandom’s attention reblogs us. Then there are a few cases, you included, who are the tumblr famous fanartists of the fandom and just a few minutes after posting a drawing BOOM 100+, 200+ notes or more…

It is very discouraging for the non-tumblr-famous fanartists of the fandom when we see this. It’s a feeling like- “¿???¿¿What are they doing that we don’t do???¿? Why do they get so much more attention when my drawings are just as good??¿”. Ok, some have obvious answers to those questions, but quite a lot of others don’t. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt this, but let me tell you: discouraging. Very. Discouraging. So potential awesome fanartists get disheartened and slowly drop off the ship/fandom, at least in trying to draw and contribute. And that’s so very sad.

On the other hand, another thing  I’ve been noticing it’s that The Hobbit fandom seems to be like a second-hand fandom to most people. Like yeah, they’re in the fandom, but they only awake when there’s new material out. The Hobbit doesn’t seem to be their main fandom, so they only draw Hobbit stuff after a film is out, or scenes from the extended editions are released, or there’s a new trailer. Or yes, it might be a primary fandom for them but they don’t ship Fili and Kili, or not as much as us, for whom they have become an OTP! There are loads of people drawing Bagginshield out there, for instance, or other pairings within The Hobbit fandom. Some other people seem to have moved on and they’re not that interested anymore, if any interested at all.

So, there, there you go  (◕__◕)*:・゚ reasons/causes why you might feel lonely with “your” ship (it’s a lot of other people’s ship too, you know?).

Just let me make one last point clear: I’m not saying it’s your fault, and I’m not blaming you directly for this, ok?? I’m just stating facts that I and other few fellas have been noticing for months now and that just needed to be said. This post of yours has just lit the sparkle within me that I needed to say them.

This said, I shall add one more thing: don’t stop drawing them, if you still ship them and love them then keep drawing them! If you notice you get less attention, if you notice that the ship is drowning… well, it shouldn’t matter as long as you still enjoy it and there are still some people there sailing with you. And I hope others who dropped off the ship some day find the heart to come back and delight us again with their art again~

P.S: I’ve just seen this in your other blog:

[…] I thought about us as the only durincest fan artist left […]

[…] Then today I saw some fan art in fuckyeah-durincest and it was like breathing again, not alone, not for now^^ I need to look for the other durincest fan artist and interact more with them, I think it’s something I must do right now. […]

Well, yes, you are not alone, come check us out, ok? Thanks, peace.

*takes a deep breath*

HELL YES TO WHAT VICKY SAID. Every word she said it’s so deeply accurate. 

Yeah, I kind of “dropped out” of the fandom, as Vicky said, because I was so fed up with this situation I just simply said: fuck it. I was so, let’s put it this way, disappointed that you do stuff, hard work and you just go unnoticed and then other famous artists get +100 instantly and you just sit there looking at the screen and say: oh.

Believe me, it’s really discouraging. 

That’s why I draw so much stuff of my own OCs that really almost nobody notices because, well, it’s not "fandom related" but I’ll still do it because, fuck it, I can draw what makes me happy. As well as other fandom stuff.

And well, second point is that I’m one of those multifandom person. I’m into lot’s of things and I do not exclusively dedicate my entire art into just one fandom, but lots. I don’t post much of that, but I try. (But then again we are back to square one, nobody notices the artwork and desist trying). But I think Vicky says it clear here:

So, there, there you go  (◕__◕)*:・゚ reasons/causes why you might feel lonely with “your” ship (it’s a lot of other people’s ship too, you know?).

You know, it hurts so much to try so hard and then see how little you accomplish where other people just with a snap of their fingers and have it all.

Basically it’s what Vicky said, she got all the points right and I just want to say, amen to all that.

Ah fantastic I scored twice.

And believe me: I don’t have it all, I don’t know what you two are thinking about me, what think I am, but god I am insecure, mediocre and I have nothing at all with a snap of my damn fingers.

Thank you anyway for telling me this.

Good Lord, Aly, we were NOT talking about you precisely, we were talking about the fandom in general. As I said in my last reblog about that anon, it’s a matter that was on the fandom and you helped bring it into the spotlight, but NOT in the bad way you are taking it.

Hey, you had a rough time? Ok, fine, it’s ok we all have rough stuff and I’m deeply sorry to hear that you are not in a good time but please, PLEASE, do not use this as a way to blame us for attacking you becase WE. WERE. NOT.

Sorry I sound rude but best be honest and straight to the point, right?

I don’t know what to think.
Maybe you two are just letting me realize that after all I’m part of this and I did something, not intentionally, but I’m part of this.

Always want to be helpful, always tried to be… and if from this post a problem will be solved or even we will try to solve the problem, well it will be a little goal to me, nothing against this thought.

Oh I had and are having some rough times for such a long time, trying to don’t bother anyone with my personal problems, but they are part of me and sometimes I see they infect me, I always hope they don’t but I’m a fragile human.

I’m not using anything, just reading and, well, replying… better if I misunderstood your words, I say sorry didn’t do it on purpose or for letting people have pity of me!

This entire conversation is rude and honest, better to solve some points like this than act differently and not solving anything.
