    It almost looks like Metroid 2 but I've never played it so idk for sure.

    That's what you would think, but it's nothing I ever saw in my copy and the ending doesn't have a sequence remotely like that.

    Eh, I don't know if I would agree with this point.

    Just because someone looks up to you, does not mean you have actually made any kind of agreement with them. You basically have no say in who does or doesn't admire what you do.
    So I don't think that makes you obligated to them just because they happened to stumble upon you.


    Also, I really that first Metroid gif. It's cute.

    @Vae, Sorry for my poor choice of words...

    I meant to say,
    You have a responsibility to your peers and people starting out. It Doesn't matter the craft.
    (Art, Writing, Music, etc.)

    I'm not saying you should go around lecturing newbies, or forming secret alliances (you should).
    However at least answer simple questions like "what medium is that? would you recommend this or that".
    OR network with peers so you're not shooting each other in the foot.(commission rates, blacklists, bad clients, etc)

    As far "fans" or "admirers" go, you only need to update them on things like inactivity, (bad) news, and future plans. At least this way, people won't be asking if you died...

    I try not to let most fans close. I'll respond to comments (though if the comments are spam/emoticons I'll ask them to stop), but I will rarely hand out my skype. I may give out steam if someone wants to play a specific video game with me but I found it can be stressful just having people try to force a friendship because they think you are an "interesting person" on the basis of art alone. It can be flattering to have someone look up to you but you'll find that the artwork will convey little of their personality or interests. Therefore, you can't really tell if you're going to be compatible with an artist as a friend.

    I am pretty content with my lot in life and who I know right now so I don't feel the need to invite fans to be a part of my life.

I have 7 messages sitting in my inbox from this person and frankly idk how to respond. They've commented on every single story and want me to use one of their characters in a fanfic at some point, which I thought well that's cool I like getting feedback and doing crossover stuff. Then I come back and find they're written an entire story about Jack. A fanfiction about a fanfiction, it's like fanfictionception or something.

    This is getting weird. I didn't post this in the writing section because I'd imagine this is something artists have to deal with more often, but perhaps this is just par for the course and I'm not used to it. Either way, people writing about my characters is really… odd. What do?
    You're getting noticed and don't know how do deal with it. I dig it, man. Congrats: you are slowly becoming a big deal to people.
