“What did you do last night?” “Oh you know…the usual…my depression unexpectedly stopped clobbering me in a way that seems like will last more than an hour or so, and may actually be a lasting upswing, so instead of going to bed with my clothes on when I got home from work, I made a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, my favorite kind of sandwich since childhood, then was so proud of having achieved this sandwich that I spent actual time photographing said sandwich…how about you”
Hi, 7goodangel. I am here to ask you about PaperJam as a shy, smol and innocent being (mainly thegreatrouge made him be). There has been some conflicts regarding his trait. Some said his canonical personality is a jerk, like what you wrote in his bio / info and some said that is severely wrong and being shy, (which made him shipped with Fresh), is his canonical personality. What are your thoughts about this? I mean, it is your character and people are taking control of it. Don't you disagree?
Well… I have talked to people and seen public
conversations and this has happened several times to me over months. I guess
I’ve gotten a little numb to it now… or maybe it’s due to school that I
haven’t given it the attention that it deserves. Probably due to school.
I just can’t update constantly like others - even though
some others in school were and are able to update constantly. I can’t keep
going around and holding up my bio of PJ and police people. It’s exhausting to
me… it really takes up the small bit of free time I have.
I think after I get a solid job that I’ll be able to go
around better… but anyway - back to your question.
While I love seeing interpretations and do not want people
to be limited by something and have their imaginations go forth… it’s proving
that a huge con comes with that mentality - which you have pointed out. A lot
of people swear that PJ is the cute, innocent interpretation that really, did
get PJ popular in the first place. While I did have him as a jerk from the
beginning - I kinda kept that info to my RP blog - so you could say it is my
fault this is all happening and I do think that. I could of done something to
make it not as bad as it is now…
It’s just like the NSFW stuff… people just assume the
first thing and run with it. And it really does make me feel like I really am
not needed for my own character at points.
It’s a struggle - I don’t want to have people stop
interpreting PJ within AUs… but I also don’t want people to just see him as
an innocent child to ship with Fresh.
And I’m still trying to find the best solution to it.
But… I feel like the damage is already done. It’s too late
for me to talk to all of these people going around swearing on their life that
PJ is canoncally like Rouge’s interpretation/AUs. It feels like an hopeless
battle to me.
And I guess I needed someone to ask me this question so then
I can fully say my thoughts on this.
So in short, while I love creativity and don’t want to snuff
it out (considering some people would probably think I’m doing that already
with saying “No Sin”), I still don’t like it. It irritates me, irks me,
frustrates me, and I feel like even as the person who thought of PJ in the
first place, my voice isn’t enough. Communities seem like they don’t care about
artists unless they reach a ‘certain goal of popularity’ or seem like they
have a more professional style of art. I know I do not reach either of those
People misspell my username all the time - I actually
claimed ‘7goodangle’ on tumblr for that reason.
People still say “I’m too lazy to find who made PJ”
when they clearly mentioned they looked at the bio on the wiki.
People still go around arguing others on the canon ship of
OmniPJ and swearing that FreshPaper is the true canon ship, when all people are
pointing out is that they need to keep the canon ship in mind when going around
Even just basic personality traits… and these things are
happening on sites that I do not nor want an account for.
I still want others to have fun - to be happy; but I don’t
know… I guess I’m cutting out my own happiness to get everyone else happy? I
want to eventually write a version of PJ within his own universe and story…
and he is more like the version I created within the UT verse. Not exact - but
close. Though who knows… I might shove PJ to the side and replace his role
with another character. I’m still weighing options.
Cause PJ was the first character I ever put this much time
and thought into… my first character that was balanced, well rounded…
And what happens?
You said it Anon.
They took it - changed it (initially as an AU but now people
think it’s canon) - and I can’t do much about it. Due to school and not much
free-time… due to how many don’t know the true creator… and just back
talking anyone who is just mentioning it to people who swear by it.
As an artist and a character designer…
It makes me not want to show designs, characters, and
stories ever again online.
Considering if this is how I was treated on the first one…
why even take a chance at a second one? If it has brought me so much stress,
frustration, and time… why even try it again?
I said I was only going to do fanart so if anyone stole it,
it didn’t really matter.
I think I should have stuck with that thought process.
In conclusion, there are some major things to take away
here. First – that yes, I do not like how it has skewed this far to the point
of arguing over a fandom version with the canon. Canon is canon and I get the
different AUs – this is too far. Way too far. I am emotionally drained from
this – from this whole mess that I have been defending throughout majority of
PJ’s lifespan. I will state this – Paper Jam is my character. He is my original
character that I created more than a year ago. And the UT AU fandom took my
character and warped him to something he is not and all of his original meaning
is lost. I do not like to hurt others or make other sad – but I must put my
foot fully down. This miscommunication needs to stop. I am tired of repeating
things over and over and I have past my breaking point time and time again. I
just want people to see PJ how he really is… and I wish that people could be
focusing more on the reality of him instead of the alternate that they all
claim as truth.
Final words: I still like Undertale – I still like creating
characters and having fun – but the Undertale AU fandom is ridiculous now. The Amino
UT community is insanity in an app, and there is a lot of stuff that has made
many artists and creators to their breaking point and leaving the fandom
entirely. Everyone in this fandom needs to take ten steps back and look at what
they are doing. Go back to the game. Play it again – watch your favorite let’s
player’s videos of it again.
And just… food for thought… please don’t jump the gun on someone else’s OC’s
personality and actions.
Arguing with non-black poc about how George Lopez telling a joke about how Latino folks have two rules, one of them being don’t bring a black person home, is actually anti-black as fuck and hearing them defend it by saying yes that’s just how it is and it’s not anti-black is wild
It’s also that last straw that really proved poc solidarity is bullshit and that brown folks will defend anti-blackness as a way to not actually address the affects of white supremacy on their relationship to blackness and how they treat black folks and I’m tired and I’m not taking that shit from white people so I’m definitely not dealing with it from nobody else
Y'all wanna claim rights to say nigga and bank off black culture and creativity all day but will show your ass with some racist ass comments about black folks in a heart beat and claim its culture.
Imagine being a new peculiar and being introduced to the others like:
Millard: Hi, I’m Millard Nullings. And I am invisible, obviously.
You: Well… I can see that…
Millard: I saw what you did there!
You: Shall we continue this in-SIGHT-ful conversation over a cup of tea?
Enoch: Will you two quit it?
Millard: Oh please, Enoch. We’re just… claying around!
Enoch: *groans even louder*
Are you really telling us off for having an opinion on Kendall?
Calling a girl a SLUT goes WAY BEYOND having an OPINION. Its extremely disrespectful and degrading. She’s HUMAN, like all of us. She might not care enough to browse through every comment on her instagram, but once in a while, i’m sure she sees the comments of immature and jealous fans who call her slut, whore, bitch, etc. I WILL NOT tolerate people going into my inbox badmouthing a woman who didn’t do anything but INVITE your fave to her 21st birthday party.
Oh btw, just in case you didn’t know:
What’s acceptable: “I don’t like Kendall Jenner” “I don’t ship Kendall Jenner with Harry Styles”
What isn’t acceptable: “Kendall Jenner is a slut” “Kendall Jenner should kill herself” “Kendall Jenner is a fucking whore”
Honestly the scariest thing about casserole claire’s books is that they’re targeted towards teenagers and they romanticize rape and abuse, promote racist and biphobic/homophobic themes and promote girl/girl hate. Like I was 12 when I read her books and I didn’t see any problem with the books at all. I thought everything was perfectly fine and I even remember praising casserole for her diversity. She’s teaching young teenagers that it’s okay to date two girls “accidentally”, and that if guys are grossly possessive over you its “cute” and “romantic”. She teaches young girls that it’s okay to hate other girls just for being pretty. She teaches people that it’s okay to accuse bi people of sleeping with everyone they know. And honestly it’s just sick. People writing children/YA books should be sending positive messages. Casserole is disgusting and I refuse to believe otherwise
i’m looking at these polls and!!! if you voted third party instead of voting for hillary literally go fuck yourself!!!!!!! you are the direct cause of half of trump’s leads in the swing states right now and i hate you!!!!!!!!!
