You should be ashamed of yourself, posting someone else's art just to mock it. Real fucking cool. We get it, you have great taste and fan art is hilarious.

Fuck off. There are enough people like that outside fandom. 😡😡😡. You're not contributing a goddamn thing.

And no, I don't care for jocklocke, so I'm not "butthurt" but you should be: you should have your assumptions kicked, fucker. Fuck you anyway.

Your ASS that is. Thanks autocorrect...

You sure you don't have a vested interest? Your reaction is a tad over the top.

Sorry I didn't politely say "pls don't mock people's art uwu"

And here I was thinking "having your assumptions kicked" was a wonderful turn of phrase, even if it didn't really make sense.

You're welcome to use it

Man, I don't even think it's bad fan art, but it's just prima facie somewhat ridiculous

That doesn't mean you can't like it. You can love things, totally sincerely, while recognizing they are ridiculous. But it is a ridiculous dang ol piece of fanart.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 12:42 am (UTC)(link)
Still not OK to post it here without permission & for the irony or whatever. It just fucking sucks to treat other people's art that way--whatever the intent (and there's a lot of fan art that might strike YOU as tacky or ridiculous, but is made sincerely for love by the artists).

You know, this fandom in particular has a BAD history with art being mocked by outsiders, including people who've shoved it in the actors' faces in public while filming in the hopes of a "har har how gross" reaction.

The fact that I'm not even IN the fandom and am aware of this stuff shows how fucking tone deaf and/or cruel you'd have to be to contribute to the finger pointing and mockery.

Nope. Nopitty nope.

A lot of the secrets posted here feature fanart, and it's fairly common for it to be used as a negative or made-fun-of background. I'm not absolutely certain why the objectively ridiculous Dirty Dancing AU Johnlocke art is the one that has you specifically clutching your pearls and wailing "But think of the FANARTISTS!" Buuut, having taken a few steps into Sherlock fandom when I got into the show, and quickly realizing why the fandom has that well-deserved reputation that it does, I can hazard a guess that this kind of art is your favorite thing and you consider it absolutely 100% deadly serious no-jokes-allowed, as many Johnlockers do for some ineffable reason.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 07:36 am (UTC)(link)
You are genuinely just massively over-reacting to this because of some other thing you're associating it with

This thing is not the same as the thing you think it is. It's just not. I really don't think this is being done in the negative way you think it is. I'm sorry it apparently triggers some kind of hair-trigger for you but

(Anonymous) 2017-05-13 08:59 pm (UTC)(link)
OP isn't mocking the art itself though. Just the WTF concept, and it is objectively pretty damn WTF.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-13 10:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Cool, let's tell the artist and send them the secret, let's see how they feel about it.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-13 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Exactly. But please don't. They WOULD be hurt. 😡

I, for one, do ship them hard, and didn't find this secret reason to get butthurt. I took it more as a "laughing with you, not at you" thing. If that's not how OP intended it, then joke's on them because I still ship them and I still think this art is awesome (if also kind of ridiculous) and I'm not sorry or ashamed.

You might not want to assume that everyone who comes up with really out-there AUs, whether fic or art, and everyone who enjoys them are always taking it and themselves 100% seriously.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-13 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Nope, still not OK to mock someone's fan art in a public place. Fuck them.

This reaction seems a little extreme. I think you're reading more negativity into the secret than is actually there since the worst thing OP says is to imply it's "hilariously WTF". That may have been what the artist was going for, given the uh, unusual juxtaposition of Sherlock and Dirty Dancing. You're not giving much credit to johnlock fans for possessing a sense of humor, that's for sure.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
>>You're not giving much credit to johnlock fans for possessing a sense of humor, that's for sure.

WHAT? How does publicly laughing about an artist's work give "credit" to fans??? You're really stretching there.

Haha damn! Guessing you haven't been here very long.

Also, OP is right, the art is funny as hell (doesn't mean the art is bad, just a hilarious concept. Nothin wrong with that.)

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 12:59 am (UTC)(link)
I have, actually. I'm just not cool with people making fun of fanworks for the lolz. I'm never going to be cool with that, no matter how edgy and/or mature you think it is.

As an artist who sometimes does absurd shit expressly for the purpose of being silly: Chill. That fanart is hilarious, but in a good way.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 12:55 am (UTC)(link)
You get to make that call about your art. Not other people's.

Don't think OP meant it mockingly but in a comedy way? Artist kind of is doing a satire and I wish I didn't know but there used to be few months where this fandom spilled into others in a form of 'red pants Monday' and my eyes had enough by second week.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 01:54 am (UTC)(link)
It's a Dirty Dancing parody featuring Martin Freeman, who has made his career on being befuddled and uncomfortable, in tiny red panties. What OTHER reaction are people possibly exoected to have? It's not a Monet, ffs, it's a visual gag.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it's shitty but...they artist posted it on the internet...for everyone to see. Being mocked well, unfortunately, it's a risk we all take every time we post something.

(Anonymous) 2017-05-14 05:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Nobody is saying the art is bad, just that the concept is funny.

Seriously, how do you not get this.
