I would first like to start off by informing all who participated that I truly am sorry for what I started. I read a critique, deemed it unfair that someone other than the producer had done what I percieved as "bashing" all who were in the production except for him/herself, and decided to call said person out about it, not realizing that many people would jump on me for it. My boyfriend retaliated on my behalf, and the rest is now, as I imagine, VAA history. Let me just paint a mental picture here as to why my boyfriend would do somthing like this: Think Peter and Lois from Family Guy. I defended him, got attacked, and he defended me. However, there were some who felt that he put me up to it because of a critique that he did not, in fact, read, merely posted after. This is not true. I spoke my mind about something I percieved as unfair, and that's really what the whole thing was about: perception.
I would like to say that I am stunned by the immaturity and the hurtful things said by him and others in the posts, the minced words, the editing of sentences, and what have you, but I am glad that everyone seems to have made nice.
I'd also like to apologize to Haushinka, for spelling her name wrong in my post. I'm a bit dyslexic sometimes and letters sometimes move themselves around in my brain ;
I guess I would like to finish by apologizing again for starting something like that. It was never my intention to be hurtful. I'd also like to ask you to not blame my boyfriend for what I started. Despite what some say and what he himself often thinks, he works hard on every voice acting project he takes on. The only reason for him maybe turning in lines or auditions at the last minute is merely because he can do his best in a short amount of time, even if it takes him a few tries. His ability to just press "Record" and crack off several different voices has even astounded the creator of a Flash he participates in. He's never had much self-esteem, and when the Flash he's in got front page on NewGrounds, he was so proud--I just want to see that look on his face again.
The reason I got on here to apologize, I suppose, is because he has decided he doesn't want to voice act anymore after all of this, which is, if you'll pardon my language, a goddamned shame. He really is a good guy and a terrific voice actor, and for him to up and quit isn't fair. Please, I implore you all, don't hold it against him, and if and when he auditions for something again, don't let the "war" come to your mind first. I ask you to be as objective as any other time before all of this mess started.
Again, I apologize, and wish all of the VAA a good day.
