One of the "substitute people"
Can I substitute for Kirsten?
You know...

I have a shitty life and nothing ever seems to go right for me these past few years. But I had my pictures. The only thing that brought me joy were the Orlando and Viggo pictures I'd receive from last_glances. That is, until these past few days.

So they removed the Viggo pics because they were being stolen and reposted. I didn't blame them and told them I stood behind them 100%. Then they had to change their name and it was so new, I hadn't even learned it yet. Now the whole community is gone and me learning the new community name is now moot.

And why?

Because a couple of stupid fuckwads can't follow the goddamned rules!

Message to the idiots:

Thank you very much you little bitches, whoeverthefuck you are. I really appreciate your massive efforts in the devious ways you contrived to steal. Congratulations--you won. Good luck getting photos now, you little bitches. I hope you get finger cramps searching and your bank account overdraws in your effort to "get pics first". In other words--choke on 'em!

Pissed??? You betcha!

I'm SICK of fandom and the petty bullshit that goes on inside one from a small number of idiots!!

Many of you know the oozing piles of shit I had to go through in my old fandom and I really thought I'd left it all behind. Boy was I mistaken. Shit like what has happened can kill a fandom. I've seen it too many times before. So as a word to all of you V/O fans from someone with a lot of experience... FIGHT IT. Give the fandom a shot in the arm. Write, make icons, wallpapers, post pics, discuss--whatever it takes. DO NOT GIVE UP THE LOVE!! These little bitches should NOT have the power to kill a fandom out of their own greed. We're all here because we love Viggo and Orlando and it's just that simple.

To the ladies who ran the community, I appreciated your efforts. Words cannot express my sorrow and anger on your behalf. You provided the fandom one of the greatest gifts possible and your contributions through the community will be missed. And missed by some more than others.

I kinda feel like my world is shattering right now.

And just because...

Evident Love

Was that the faces_fit comm!?! No way!! I'm way too behind on everything. I knew that pics were being stolen (bastards) but to close it down completely?!?!

*throws shoe*

Wow. I really don't know what to say. I guess because my fandoms only slip a little in my life. I have diffrent ones and they all get fed diffrently. *shurgs*

Sorry. *hugs*

This community just provided every pic I'd ever need without me having to spend hours combing the net. I rarely have time to do much of anything and my attention span is sad these days. So having it at my fingertips was a real blessing. And leave it to one or two morons to ruin something good because of envy. Makes me sick.

This is basically my only fandom--well, this and PotC. And it's all effected. So I'm really annoyed and upset.

OMG! This bites donkey dongs!
I'm just... beyond words right now.

I know! I'm kicking too. And sharpening swords.GRRRRRRRR

You know, I've always said that people should have to pass a test for intelligence before they can procreate. I'm thinking now that the same rule should apply to fandom. GRRRRRRRRRR
woejoedoe From: woejoedoe Date: October 9th, 2007 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)
This sucks so much. :[ I've been having such hideous couple of months lately and like you, seeing all the new pics was always a nice reprieve from RL hassles. :sigh: I don't understand people who like ruining things for others. I just don't.

A foolish part of me still hopes this gets resolved somehow and they can come back in some way. :sigh:
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 02:37 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! RL is hell, the last thing any of us need is more shit in fandom-related stuff.

We can always hope they're able to re-invent themselves, but when you get burned this badly, you tend to be gun shy. Speaking as a person who has dealt with it before, it really does just suck the life right out of you.
amygirl From: amygirl Date: October 9th, 2007 01:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Uhm...has anyone heard anything from the mods that it's actually down for good? Was there a note before it was delted or somethign that I missed because I've been massively behind on my FList today? Or something on their journals? I would think/hope if they were permantly taking it down there would have been notice of it. They were going to do some member spring cleaning perhaps this has something to do with that? Just don't like to jump the gun if there's no cause for it...
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 02:51 am (UTC) (Link)
Nope, trust me, They closed it. I know the mods fairly well.

The stupid git that started all of this made threats and instead of causing additional strife, they just closed it. Can't say I blame them. But it makes me very sad. :(
belil_gaviel From: belil_gaviel Date: October 9th, 2007 01:30 am (UTC) (Link)
I have to agree with the way you feel. I can't believe there are some people out there that has to ruin such a good thing. Those ladies that ran the comm did a great job in providing us with some wonderful pictures and now they are all gone. :0(
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 02:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, they did! And I know they appreciated everyone who left them feedback on a regular basis and backed them up while they were having problems. It's very disheartening for them and also for the fandom.
veronica_rich From: veronica_rich Date: October 9th, 2007 03:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Relying on others to behave in fandom can be a sucky thing. *pats back*
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 05:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Trust me, I do know. Still, it has the power to piss me off royally.

Scariest part? I'd bet money (if I had any) that the idiots who caused the problem will proe-create. Wee ha
bunnysquee From: bunnysquee Date: October 9th, 2007 03:47 am (UTC) (Link)
i knew they were having problems with people reposting but i didn't realise the community was deleted. i'm really sad too ...
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC) (Link)
It really sucks that they were backed into a corner by some jealous little fuckwit. :(

*crawls out of lurk mode to offer support*

I'm with you all the way, sweetie. I've just started getting addicted back into VigOrli again, and I'd hate to see it go all to hell now!

*much love and hugs*
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 05:36 am (UTC) (Link)

I'm just so glad to have you back again!!! And YAY for the fandom!!!

It just pisses me off that stupid little shits can cause this much grief. GRRRRRRRR
icing_death From: icing_death Date: October 9th, 2007 05:53 am (UTC) (Link)
Fucking assheads. I can't believe that. Who the hell do they think that they are, harassing the mods. I really, really respected the work that some people put into that comm, and hate to see it destroyed because a handful of selfish bitches think that it's their god given right to steal the photos we've worked hard to obtain and distribute completely selflessly.
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 11:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
EXACTLY!! But we both know how some assholes can be. They have to go and do stupid shit and ruin it for the rest of us.. GRRRR
encelade2 From: encelade2 Date: October 9th, 2007 07:31 am (UTC) (Link)
I liked this community so much,because the pictures gave us news of the boys:hey,Vig is in Toronto,in San Sebastian,has met Livvie Loo,or Geoffrey Rush.
Orli has bought a vintage motorcycle and is so funny with his helmet.
And sometimes it was the opportunity to speculate a little bit!Why is Viggo so friendly to Geoffrey,how does he even know him?Aaaah,yes,Geoffrey was Orli's costar,he he...!
And Ed Harris in London watching In Celebration,how come?Hum,Ed is Vig's best pal,sort of,so... ;)

So like you I'm pissed of,angry and sorry.:((
We are gonna miss pictures and news like hell.*enormous sigh*
araestel From: araestel Date: October 9th, 2007 11:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes we are! And all because someone is a flippin' asshat. GRRRRRRRRR
