Previous Entry game over Oct. 1st, 2004 @ 10:03 am Next Entry
at tod's suggestion, i deleted the rude post left in my journal last night. i deleted two more this morning.

last night i deleted the LSR and CG archives from the internet.

i'm done with webcomics.

i'm done giving myself and my stuff out for free, since this is how i'm repaid.

i'd been waiting and waiting until i could do the comic online AND in print, because i didn't want to lose my readership.

but i don't care anymore. everyone just forget i ever existed, and go stalk someone else. i have a life to live, and i don't need people bringing me down and telling me i'm fucking up this one when things are good for the first time ever. especially not people i don't know.

it's gone.

this journal may become friends only if this continues, in which case, the few people that i know in real life (and a few that are people i've known and trusted for 4+years online) that are on MY friends page will be the only ones to read it.

call me whatever you want. i'm just sick of this.

i really don't want to have to delete my livejournal, but evidentally that's one of the next steps.

ironically, (or maybe not) we watched eternal sunshine of the spotless mind last night.
Current Mood: done, over, gone

Well... on the bright side... that movie is fucking amazing. I bought it Tuesday and haven't watched it yet, I'm sort of hoping that the girl I like will want to watch it with me. :-/

(ps i know i don't really get myself involved in the drama on your lj and stuff but i'd still like to read your journal)

i hope you don't intend to quit making comic period, you have talent.

I also hope that i remain on your journal if it does transition (which it probably should)

I'm sorry some jack-ass would be that rude. I don't think anyone, especially you, deserves it.
More than that I'd hate to see you disappear from the net - I'm a long time LSR reader and have never felt depraved when real life meant a delay, however long, in an update. I know about real life. I know you don't sit around with some magical income just waiting to put the next comic up.
Maybe I'm just not hoity-toity enough to get bent out of shape when someone doesn't update my free entertainment as much as I'd like. Cranky? Yes. It makes me sad that people would attack you in a way that would leave you wanting to pull out of something you'd invested so much of yourself into. But all things change. At the risk of sounding demanding - I hope you keep on comicing in real life, since it's something you love. And something your talent has grown in quite a bit.
Hell, you're making a living doing characters on the spot. That takes something special.
Maybe someday I'll run across your comic in a comic store, or a convention and say "hey - I read that girl's stuff waaaaaaay back in the day when she was doing webcomics. Damn she's come a far way".
I guess the really important thing is just to do what will make you and your life happy. That's priority number one.
Best of luck <3

I have to say, if you go away completely, They win. "They" being the nebulous group of people what gives you shit.

C'mon, don't hand 'em victory.

Just a lurker, wanted to say "Damn, that sucks" that someone made you feel so shitty that you deleted the LSR archives. I was kinda looking forward to you taking it up again since you had time now. Does that mean you'll just do print comics instead for Young American now?

And hey, at least your b-day's coming up, right? (I noticed on user info - I'm 3 days older than ya! Yay Libras!)

Well that sucks. I've always enjoy your comic :( and reading your journal.

As always you should do what you feel you need to do. If that means to stop making the comic then go on ahead because it's your art. It's your vision. No one has any right to tell you what to do with it.
I would still be interested in a print version of LSR if it ever got made. I think that would kick much ass. I think a lot of people would agree with me on that one too. There is something about your humor that kinda grabs people. The last comic you posted on LSR made me giggle every time I read it (which was a lot cause I kept checking at least once a week)
As for making your journal friends only *pout* but it's all good. I am sure you have a ton of us lurkers..which...when I think about is strange and creepy. I'm sorry! :( Anyway!

Smile Miss Corey. Think about the good things and tell the assholes to fuck off >:3

Damn, it really is all gone. :( I guess we may have seen it coming since it seemed to have been about the 1872364th important thing on your list right now, but still it's kinda sad.

I know I hardly ever comment and shit, but still I'd like to keep reading your LJ, if it's ok. I want to see the happy ending for you guys ^_^

I'm sorry that there are people out there who are making things harder than they need to be. Do what you have to do, and if I'm not included if your lj goes friends-only, then know that I wish you well :)

Apologies that I am apparantly the one who set off that unknown a-hole, but hey, better to have them gone then lurking out there waiting to pounce.

Good job making the hard decision, hope everything turns out well. Oh, and my "offering advice" was only meant in regards to purchasing a house. :-)

it's not a problem, josh, i know you didn't mean any harm. we will be getting a house, but as we are not planning to stay in san diego, it doesn't make any sense to get one now.

you know what they say about one (or in this case a few) bad apples spoiling the bunch.

sorry to see it all go, but at the same time i'm glad you're doing what's best for you.

thanks for all the comics and enjoyment you have given me over these past few years, your comics have been an inspiration for me to finally get up and get going on my own, which i'm actually working on right now.

i hope everything goes well in the future for you and tod, because you definitely deserve it. :)

Sorry to hear that. If you go, will miss reading your posts/comics. Have you thought about using the other journal again instead?

Didn't see what happened...kinda glad I missed it.

And congratulations. Glad to see your pursuit of happiness paid off.

It seems like you have enough issues in life without dealing with online people. If you get so upset about some person you dont even know, there is a real problem. You destroyed something you've been working on since you were a kid over some jerk online? That is kind of silly. I agree you should stop making web comics since you clearly feel you are being used by not making a decent profit from it. You should only invest your time in such a time consuming persuit if you enjoy it, and you don't seem to. Even if you did, you have enough on your proverbial plate right now, and probably will for years to come.
You owe it to Tod to maintain your mental health. He has changed his life to accomodate you and it would be extremely unfair of you to go nuts on him. It's also unfair for you to continue talking about Justin. Wasn't it over a year ago now? I know it's how you "feel", but what about how Tod feels? I don't care what he says, it's gotta be hard for him to read about your ex all the time. The only way you're going to get over Justin is to stop thinking about him, and yes, you can stop thinking about him. If you really feel you made the right choice you already would have stopped on your own. Please don't take this as me trying to be mean to you because I'm not. Good luck.

first of all, the comics weren't destroyed, they're still backed up somewhere. i just took them down.

two, it's not a profit thing, it's a respect thing.

"He has changed his life to accomodate you and it would be extremely unfair of you to go nuts on him."

i like how my mental stability is something i'm consciously doing, and doing to disadvantage someone else at that.
