A short break from amusing texts (or well a break from my silence rather) to let you know that tumblr user borgiafan is reposting texts from this blog on their instagram-account musketeers-and-borgias (e.g. h^ere, here and here).
The credit for discovering that goes to the amazing hippity-hoppity-brigade and you can read about it here and the whole saga via this tag. This should also make it clear this isn’t a case of an overenthusastic fan not quite knowing what they are doing. Borgiafan has been asked repeatedly not to repost thinks but they don’t stop.
I have already reported the texts I found (I can’t comment as I don’t have an instagram-account). If you have the time you can check the account and see if you perhaps more stolen art and alert the original creator. Otherwise: don’t follow them (her or on instagram), don’t fave their posts. Don’t give them attention. Give your love to the original creator.
On that matter: I know this is “just” a texts from last night post. I don’t claim that those texts take the same amount of work or time as some of the gorgeous photoshop-edits I have seen but that doesn’t mean I don’t put work in these texts (which is why I can’t chuck the out thrice daily constantly even though I’d love to make you laugh constantly).
I need to browse textsfromlastnight and pick out those who would fit any of the characters. Then I need to decide which character(s) it would fit best. Then I need the right screencap. If it’s only a single character it’s usually not that difficult but if e.g. I think it would fit best for a conversation between Athos and Aramis, I need to find one showing those two (preferably with facial expressions that match the text).
So yes, I might not spent hours sweating over a single edit but it’s still work. And the payment I get for this is knowing that you guys find it funny. Seeing that you liked the posts or reblogged them (and perhaps added hilarious tags, seriously: I love going through the blog and reading your tags). If people like the posts on borgiafan’s instagram-account I get nothing out of it so please please don’t give any attention to plagiarists, don’t repost other people’s work, even if it’s “just” a simple textsfromlastnight edit.
