You don't have to tell me I shouldn't bitch when I'm upset.  
I know it but I have to get this out of my chest before I choke.
Not a happy camper today. Not at all.
Thing is, I make and share Stargate icons. They are not that great but damn it! all I have to offer for this fandom is icons. I'd like to think of myself as generous and if I'm wrong, please, please tell it to my face so I can get off my high horse. Especially, when lately every icon I make no matter how much I like it and want to hold it, hug it, squeeze it and call it George, I give it up for adop... err, I share it with everyone who wants it. I haven't kept one for myself in ages. =\

And I ask: why, oh why is it too fucking much to ask for those I make for myself to keep them personal?! It's not like they are work of art or anything but they are my brainfarts and I like to keep them that way thankyouverymuch!

::bristles::

I'm certain that the girl who took my icon probably found it from someone else who had found it from someone else who had taken it from force knows where when I leave comments all around LJ and the whole affair is just a misunderstanding and before long I'll regret this post and acting like a whining little bitch but right now I feel sorry for myself and I want to sulk and... argh! Someone took my toy! ::sulk::

Perfect timing too, just as I had finished half a dozen J/D icons. I'm so friggin' tempted to keep them all for myself just for the hell of it.
 
 
i'm feeling: bitchybitchy
background noise: a room full of colleagues

i'm sorry :(

this has happened to a lot of people. people are stupid, i don't know why they do that.

maybe you should contact that person though, maybe they're new to LJ and don't know about the tacit rules etc.

and you're not overreacting or anything. just so you know. and POST THOSE ICONS! because if you don't post them, then those idiots who steal icons would have won over you...or something.

I'm trying to write an email to her and 'trying' is the key word as I'm having a hard time being civil at the moment. I don't know if she is an LJ user 'cause she used the icon as a blinky in an email in a yahoo group I hang out at. She is a Stargate artist herself and a damn good one too and frankly I'd rather had made a post about how brilliant her Jack/Daniel collages are instead of this one. I really hope this is just a misunderstanding, I like her work too much to have a fight with her.

You can keep them you know, they are your work. ;)

Thanks for the hug sweetie. =) ::hugs back::
Butbutbut... I like sharing! ::pout:: Are you using reverse psychology on me or something? ;)

Dang it, you figured it out! ;D

I've got plenty of hugs to go around.

Is this the yahoo group that I think your talking about? (I post there off an on, so you would know which one I was thinking right? lol!)
And since you have a license plate on your info page, it could very well be the same group I'm thinking of, rofl.
If it is, and if it's the sib I'm thinking of, then... I'm 98% sure that she doesn't understand the rules about icons n' stuff. With manips that when we share, they're up for grabs for anyone to use as their desktop image... which I realise is a little different to grabbing icons. But she's in the frame of mind that things get shared, I think. :) And I never thought of telling her the icon rules.

On that note... if you are on that group that I'm thinking of... are you lurking???

argh! Someone took my toy! ::sulk::
lol, I'm sorry.. I know you're upset, but... Awh! That's so cute! {{huggles queenofstars cuteness}} :b

Hi, I have never commented in your journal but I've got a couple of things to say:
1- you have every right to be bitchy, bitch along and kick some ass...sadly where the 'net gives us plenty of occasions to share our creativity it also makes it impossible to keep our works safe from people that may not have understood the meaning of common courtesy as of yet.
2- I absolutely love your icons and art...I've been looking for good Stargate art for, like, forever. I love Stargate, I love J/D. And stumbling into your journal makes me feel like a child on Christmas morning.
3- ok, there is no point three...now I'll just friend you and keep drooling over your works :-)

**hugs** I hope it gets straightened out to your satisfaction. Also, more thank yous for the Cher icon. I really really love it to death. Roo and Spyder, the ones who were taunting me about this loved it as well. **mwah**
