rebecky_mo: First look of Usopp after timeskip (Luffy: Unimpressed)
Don't mind me, just need a moment to seethe here?

Won't mention WHICH Meme brought this on, but those who track the thread in question might know the one I mean. Basically, Anon puts out a prompt; it's an interesting kink, and the prompt is fairly specific as to what Anon wants.

Another Anon quickly says they're going to fill the request as an art-fill, and gets it done within a few days. IMO, the pairing is actually depicted as in-character as the kink allows, is funny while still bring hot, got a good bit of what was asked for in, and was done quickly. Others who checked it out agreed. OP!Anon responds to the fill and thanks Fill!Anon, even though it 'wasn't exactly what they wanted, and was a little hard to take seriously'. Whether they intended it that way or not, it came off a little ungrateful.

Now, I've put out prompts in various anon memes, including this one in question, and I've had fills that took a different route than I expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed nonetheless and thanked them for the work they did. I've also had tons of my prompts left to collect dust among the hundreds of others ones, that I would have loved ANY kind of fill for, be it Crack or Angst or even a just a paragraph. It also makes me even more hesitant to do Art-fills for prompts that actually can be DONE as art, as so many prompts tend to be detail/lead-up heavy (and everyone EXPECTS fic, dammit all).

Anon, if you didn't quite mean it the way you did, someone took hours of their time to make something especially for you, while others aren't getting a damn thing; be polite and thank them properly. If you wanted one of the prolific Anon!Authors to take it up, they still could have afterwards, (though you may have shot yourself in the foot with your response.)

And if you want something filled and exactly like your vision, do what I did, and sit down and write it yourself.
