...That is the wrong question folks.
I just read
journal and it fills me with sadness.
Somewhere out there, is a guy or gal who is missing one very important point.
It doesn't FUCKING matter!!!
White Owl the author/artist should be free to tell whatever stories, create whatever art they want.
Someone is free to dislike it of course, but that does NOT make them an Authority on what Athena or anyone else can do with their own characters, period!
And if Owl, or Alchemica or any other OC were fetish fuel? So what? As I have said recently, nothing to be ashamed about. And it is not important. But for the record, as one known to favor heroines winning...I don't think she is. I think White Owl is one of the rare and the brave, a true Heroine.
But, back to what IS important here...
What is important is that White Owl has been a member of this community, our community, for a long time.
What is important is that White Owl is open and helpful to me and to anyone else who takes the time to get to know her.
What is important is that I came here to D.A. because of finding White Owl's artwork on the web
What is important is, lastly and simply, White Owl is my friend., our friend.
So folks, go tell her. Tell her why she matters to our community so much. Remind her that for every one loud mouth asshole that annoys her...she has one hundred friends to support her.
Go give an Owl a hug and lets make sure she stays where she belongs, with us!.
