The Truth Behind The Infinity Meme

Before i start the tall-tale of the screenshot meme, i'd like to thank
ReaveT93 and Mochine-Nyan for getting me interested at 8:30 at night to do this search. and for the links you guys got, you went really far!

Now to get down to business. with the links provided from the two above, i just started pushing the images that where similar, but then i hit the first dead-end.

At this point, no one is drawing on the meme, it's just a screen shot, which i found strange, since i thought it was a drawing meme.

So, to get over the road block of deactivation, i read the user name of the person before the one that deactivated and searched the name in DA.

I did this several times until two people deactivated and i couldn't make out the words of the the last last person who did it.

In situations like this, Google is your best friend~

I started to Google the usernames and, walla! Most of their images are there, and i could make out more names.

Then i got to the people who deleted the meme. and Google was no help. Then i realized that the memes were under the genre "Devious Fun" on DeviantArt.

Wondering why i didn't do this sooner, i went to that category and searched "screenshot meme "
At first, the was just a bunch of random memes. but then i got some screenshots.

At this time, the date is 2011

Then, finally, i got a breakthrough!

NekoSazumi, who participated in the meme said:

 "Original © I don't know, I forgot. u@

Other stuff in this thing © Their original owners" 

This was submitted  on April 7, 2011

Knowing i was close, i started going through comments, and saw someone named Dreamscape195, who not only tracked it back since it wasn't too far away, but cataloged all the recent memes made.

Here's the meme with the names.

And here is the original!
wannabe Drama Addict::FAIL by kiwikittenpoo

The meme Actually started from a mean comment back in March 24, 2011.
xXxMySuicidalRomance and Kiwikittenpoo got into an argument over who knows what, and kiwikittenpoo replied with some nasty words,
         "Yeah im more then mad
=.= your just a f@#$ing troll who's spamming my comment space.
shoo now you wannabe. no one needs anymore dramatic b@#ches. <3 k thankies c:"

Of which Romance replied (or tried to):

"Oh yeah, your butthurt :iconbutthurtplz: WANNABE!? LOL! Get some new insults, your just like kasy killer. I'm dramatic? wow, nice logic there. ^____^"

But when Romance tried to post the comment, an error came up, saying:

"An error has occurred:
Unable to post comment: Comment being relied to is locked or hidden or you have been blocked by the comment author."

When Romance read that she/he had been blocked, she/he screenshot it, typed on the picture and uploaded it as a deviation.

The words romance typed was:

And then said "Nice <3 Very nice, you win! *claps* :)"
And put in the description

The most original person with awesome comebacks! <3
show her love :'D

Then Kiwikittenpoo's friends found out about the screenshot and told her/him, which is what the screenshot is of.

A lot of people commented and got some mean replies, so my guess is that people didn't like her/his attitude, so they screenshot it and showed there friends and then their friends screenshot it and couldn't read what it said, and then random people started to screenshot it to show THEIR friends the random screenshot. And so on and so on, with the title "SCREENSHOT THIS", until someone whose name i couldn't make out drew a random cat OC, which you can see here:
SCREENSHOT THIS! by EasterEgg40200
This meme went through a lot. First cats, then anthors, OC, MLP: FIM, and more and now it's nekomimis~
