    Romantic MSPA Fan-Art

    ORIGINAL POST REMOVED

    REPLACEMENT POST: You know the drill. Post romantic fan-art here, and not elsewhere, or it will be moved here anyway.

    Further edit: THIS IS NOT A LICENSE TO POST WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT. There is still a line which, if crossed, will probably result in bans! Please note that the actual rules (you've read the rules, right?) directly address this:

    Rule #8: Be advised that we have a particularly low tolerance for references to pedophila, however en vogue they may be at your disgusting 4chan sites. It should go without saying that linking to or distribution of any pornographic material relating to children (be it written, drawn, photographic, or video) will result in a permanent ban.

    I like this idea.

    I don't get this. Andrew said their ages were just numbers, they don't always act their age.. because it doesn't matter. It's not important. I personally view them as like 16 or so. The beta version of homestuck didn't work and three days later the kids were 3 years older.. obviously age isn't something to be too concerned with. It's not like the fanart is obscene or anything.. kissing and cuddling aren't really that vulgar in my eyes.

    JUST MY 2 CENTS. don't think this really bothers me or take offense or anything, i just find the idea a bit strange.

    I'm not sure an entire new thread needs to be created; perhaps something could be worked out where if you're posting such fares that you indicate it as such and spoiler it. I think a whole 1/3rd of the fan-art thread would suddenly be moved here otherwise. I think this thread does serve as a warning that perhaps the shipping/slashing has gotten a bit out of hand? I haven't minded it really too much, but every art of the kids I see I usually up to 18 or so.

    Edit: one piece comes up as going too far though; I think we DO need to take into consideration what age is being presented when drawing the kids in certain situations. If it isn't clearly an aged-up kid, then it might go too far.

    Look, I don't care if they're "aged-up" or whatever. Any depictions of romantic interactions between the canonically young characters will go here.

    It's not as if I'm up and deleting the damn things. I'm just putting them somewhere else.

    I don't mind a break from the shipping stuff for a bit actually. I know this thread is meant to just move things that some might find offensive here and out of the fan-art thread, but I imagine it'll have a deflating influence on said arts production. More bad-ass Grandpa Harley anyone? (well uh, post it in the right thread though).

    Re: Romantic Fan-Art Goes Here

    I don't see issue with moving such things to a separate thread, but I do think that the wording in the OP of this thread is needlessly aggressive and, for lack of a better word, unfriendly.

    Edit: I am now satisfied with the state of things.

    Censorship! Oh nooooo

    I don't think there have been a substantial amount of this type of art to justify such a motion. Fanart I see here is way tamer than other subsections of the internet I might name. Plus, content in the main stories (ie Jailbreak) and the porn ads are a lot more disturbing.

    But then, this new rule isn't such a big deal. I shall abide by it.

    Re: Romantic Fan-Art Goes Here

    I guess this is kind of alright, since this will now have most of my favorite stuff in it. Still, we need someone to step up and become Duke of Wellington to Marelo's budding Napoleon. Either that, or we need to get him to invade 4chan or something equally futile.

    There's so much clutter in here now. I should have just told people to PM me about it if they had a problem with it.

    Meh, the first page was bound to be discussion about the thread itself. It's better that it's visible, it should help lower the number of people who complain further down the line (though it won't eliminate that entirely).

    I'm so happy this happened. I was tired of, for pages at a time (depending on how the fads went, 60% of the fanart being the characters, "3 years older," awkwardly underdressed, in suggestive poses, or rubbing up against each other. I was looking for a away to ask people to draw more of other stuff for a change, without offending anyone. The art was still great and awesome and all. This is the perfect solution.

    Here is a crappy edit I made. I felt like this thread needed a picture or two.

    I knew it. This is secret evidence Andrew has snuck into the easter egg supporting JohnxRose.

    Re: Romantic Fan-Art Goes Here

    Okay i saw this coming, but i think everyone is just going to stop drawing "romantic fanart" just because of this thread.

    good strategy

    I'm pretty sure the shipping, shirtless, and sexycake contingents of fanart will never go wholly without.

    But it seems I'd underestimated the extent to which it made some people uncomfortable. Making things decentralized like this is probably a good idea in the long run. It will also slow down the bleedingly-fast pace of fanart thread update, which isn't really a bad idea either.

    I'm still a bit sad that it came to this, and that we couldn't (quite) stay some sort of idealized one big happy family.

    YESSSSS! Preserve the F-art thread for longer! This must be Marelo's true intention!
