Not on the breakup itself because I, like you, have more important things to worry about, but I did have one thing I wanted to point out about how Hannah talked to fans about it.

You know in a movie, when one character says“Are you John Doe?!” and the other says“Who’s asking?!” and that just confirms that the second character is John Doe, because if he wasn’t John Doe he would have just said“no”?

It’s equally true for“Are you two broken up?” with the response “stop asking” and “it’s not your business.” If their relationship was intact, she would have just said“no.” Obscuring it didn’t make people stop talking - it gave people something to talk about instead.

Hannah sometimes uses the worst of her mail as a signal to stop people from sending similar messages, but that only backfires. It’s an age-old rule: don’t feed the trolls.

Throwing out that mail or denying it until she was ready would have discouraged people from sending Hannah prying questions, which would have resulted in a more positive experience for her. Ultimately people were respectful about it on Reddit, so it could have gone worse.

Outside of all that, it’s not your business or mine, and to be clear I’m drawing the line of this conversation at the limit of where it actually impacts the fandom.

I’m going to assume you all are as wily as I am and simply rephrase the disclaimer so you can’t find and bother this person. I played the thesaurus game with this, I haven’t changed the meaning.

If this looks like your disclaimer… there are, maybe unfortunately, a lot of people who post similar disclaimers on drawings of Sjin like this person did.

“I said this before in the other places I post, despite the bad things the creators have done in real life, I am going to keep sketching their personas, counting Sjin and more in the Yogscast, as well as additional example involving an actor. I’m keeping their personas very separate.”

I would give this person slack if they were under 18. They’re not. Kids don’t always understand why it’s not healthy to“separate the art from the artist.” And I’m not going to pry and determine if this is a special interest.

But in general, I think most people can be expected to understand that if they want to keep going with this alternate universe where Lewis has a tail and Sjin isn’t a pedophile and nobody who cut ties with one another in the last five years stopped being friends, they can simply rename the star Goois, with his friend Spin and their dwarf friend Watermelon. Nothing good comes from having a portfolio that is unexplainable to normal people (”You drew ‘Sjin’? Who is that?”), or from trying to ply this art in a fandom that is going to get a migraine from looking at the pictures.

Ultimately, whatever, you’re free to do whatever, I’m just considering that if it’s worth partitioning your Alternate Universe so you don’t have to change even though looking at one of your characters reminds you and everyone else of pedophilia, it might also be worth the effort to rebrand.


i dug some more and not to be nasty but the person who wrote this disclaimer in the first place is beyond the pale i think i've seen possibly the worst fanwork anyone has ever made in this entire fandom but i'll be good and not share it but it's beyond offensive
