If you've read my other journal entry, then you understand what I'm talking about. (Sorry if that sounded rude, I'm not sure how to reword that right now. >.<)
I've thought it over, and I have three options here:
1. Make episodes without any music at all. All the claims I've been getting are because of the music anyway, not because of MMD. (Which would mean that I may not be doing duets anymore, as much as I wish I could.)
2. Completely move my work over to DeviantART. My episodes will be converted into comics like other story works here on DeviantART. The results will not be NEARLY as good as a video result, but it's better than nothing, I guess. (In other words, I'll be like the Vocaloid version of TehPuroisen-sama. [LOVE HER!!!!!!!])
3. Write a version on the story with original characters. (Which is kind of impossible because the structure and background and everything regarding the characters are based on Vocaloid.)
There are probably other options, but this is what I have. I've spent years on this project, I don't want to throw it away. I want to stop, yet I don't. I can't remember the last time I've ever quit in something, and even though I get really close to it, I don't quit in anything. I'll find some way to get it to work.
Thank you for the support. I guess maybe I did overreact before. But at the same time, due to those claims on YouTube, I don't get any credit for my efforts and in fact the credit and rewards go to someone else as if I don't even exist, so maybe I didn't overreact. I spent a year on the second episode. All that time and effort, every single day, pulling all nighters and purchasing several composition books for notes, and I don't even get partial credit for the results. To the viewers, I'm the creator of the video. But legally, someone else is now. The world is cruel as heck and I'm just too naive to understand that, I guess. I don't know what's wrong with me, I mean I did tell the truth that my only "allowed" method of venting is to write journal entries. I don't know what my problem is, I should've known better than to make videos with someone else's music. Crediting them or not, they'd still want to take my work if they can.
I'm so sick of people using me all the time.
Here's a tip for you guys: When making videos, never use music from: Doriko, LiveTune, Supercell, or Visualarts (Visualarts is the group associated with the anime Clannad's music.). You won't get credit for all the hard work that YOU put into it.
