Welp, seems I've been accused of creating a "bootleg of The Rainbow Factory". For those of you who have read my fanfic The Thunderstorm Cloud Factory
, you'll notice it is VERY
heavily influenced and based off of The Rainbow Factory and The Pegasus Device by AuroraDawn. Wonder why? That's right, I was inspired
It blows me away how sometimes people in the MLP community, the freaking M
community, are so rude. I've very clearly stated and made it crystal clear that TTCF is based of AuroraDawn's two stories, and have rightly given him credit for that.
And guys, this isn't the first time I've had something like this happen. Once I put $50+ and massive amounts of time into developing a website and story for the New Lunar Republic group over on FimFic, and what happened? The other admins of the group were assholes to me, and the story I worked so hard on for the group was added to an "Unoriginal Stories" group by another random person. The outcome of the ordeal? I went into depression and had full time Creative Block. Not just Writer's Block or Artist's Block. Like, I could literally not even touch pencil/pen to paper or finger to key to create something, whatsoever.
This isn't me ranting about me getting a little hate. It's me expressing what I care about. I care very, VERY
much about TTCF, and it is my most beloved piece. It's what keeps me writing. And that means quite a lot.
So, I'm going to continue writing the story, and making the artwork for it. Hell, I'm even thinking about starting a comic for it. I'd like to say I don't care about what others think, but I do. And now, since you guys know that, I'm absolutely done with you if you share your negative opinions or hate with me.
Ugh, I really need some rest. I need to get this off my mind. So see you guys around tomorrow!
