For those who don’t know, after the news broke about MOTU, AngstGoddess tweeted several lines that she claimed were taken from gchats with Icy.
Okay, fandom. Ready? Lettuce play “Guess that chat log.”
“Well don’t tell anyone – I have visions of being interviewed by Time Magazine for revolutionizing publishing…”
“I have done it as a sort of exercise.. to see if I could … and I think I have proven that I can… I now want to capitalize on it…”
“I have to say I do not feel as passionately as you do about the fandom”
“it’s like the old groucho marx joke which I cant remember about not wanting to belong to a club that you’re a member of…”
even when you publish it on amazon, theres still gonna be negativity “true… but I’m sure it’s easier to take with a big fat paycheck LOL”
show them theres a person behind the penname and not just some lady sitting on a perch — “I like my perch…”
“I’m not sure I feel part of the community…”
“they’ve been able to read it in its entirety. And I even did the FGB thing.. which isn’t really for me cos I never, ever wanted to do [it]”
These are all quotes from two separate chats during April & July, with @Sqicedragon, during discussions about publishing motu.
So if you think she gives a crap about the very fandom that gave her popularity, I’m very sorry to say. You’ve been punked.
/blaze of glory. I’m out. Stop perpetuating arrogance. Give your kindness to people who won’t take advantage of it.
Icy responded that the tweets were taken out of context, and posted what she said was the full surrounding text on her website in order to provide that context. It’s since been taken down, but thanks to a nonnie, we have a copy for you.
Seems like a classic case of When elephants fight, only the grass suffers. What’s your opinion? Who’s the biggest loser here (besides us?)
