i am not anyone i am me

so @joliemariella went and made this amazing freaking picture and has been telling me about this adorable little-mermaid-based au idea of hers and my hand slipped for several, several hours, oh dear.

Thank you for endorsing positivity but still placing the message out there that what's happened is not okay. It makes me so angry. Rory is such a great guy and I'm absolutely sick. I'd like to say that at least the biggest majority agrees what a fan did was so wrong but it shouldn't have happened in the first place. We really do not deserve her and we may never.

Thank you for saying so love. I will say right now that while I am a loyal Supercorp shipper and Lena fan, I am a Katie fan first and foremost and would continue to love and respect her without the other two entities. I am truly disgusted that this happened today and I am saddened over the fact that anyone would ever stoop that low.

It also saddens me that this has led to infighting within the fandom. We all know that there is a certain side to the Supercorp and the Katie fandom that perpetuates negative and disrespectful behavior (even if some that do claim it is in jest) and unfortunately that is a cancer that has grown and in this situation, one person has taken a form of poor behavior too far. In this case it isn’t necessary to call out or directly blame anyone but the person(s) involved in this incident but it is also an opportunity to consider the horrible behavior that builds because there is that unfortunate reality. 

Harassing Katie or any celebrity or their family members for amusement or personal gain, or facilitating any sort of disrespectful behavior that has the potential to reach them is a horrible way to represent yourself and the fandom and that is if you even feel as if you deserve to be called a fan – spoiler alert – you don’t.

At this point, while we are all rightfully angry over the fact that someone would even have the audacity to do something this deplorable, we as a fandom need to continue offer Katie the love and respect that she is due. Consider your actions on social media. Consider your actions and your words when interacting with her or her associates in person. Consider the fact that you are representing our fandom at these times. If, instead, you can say that you feel Katie herself would be proud, like actually proud, taking her wonderful and caring nature into account, of what you do here, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, you have some personal reflecting to do. So take some time to ponder that. Be respectful. Associate yourselves with those that are. Do not elevate or celebrate those that are not. It’s literally one of the easiest things you can do.

clarification!!

-this whole thing stemmed from me not understanding that women can use he/him pronouns, i was taught that he/him=boy
-ive heard that this is common in communities of colour, i am white so this is perhaps why i have not heard of that
-i know these are not excuses, but i hope that youll at least understand where i was coming from
-a lot of people have been questioning whether im really a lesbian, i am female aligned but more neutral than female, so while i am okay with being refered to as some female aligned words, im not okay with being straight up refered to as girl/female, ive discussed this with a few people and ive come to the consensus that this counts as being a lesbian
-ive changed my stance on the issue, now that i understand that he/him=/=male, and im working to educate myself on the topic more
-i apologize for speaking on an issue that i was misinformed on! my friend, rose, has been a big help with linking me to resources, and im very thankful for that
-also when i get really anxious, things make less sense, ive calmed down a lot now and looking back, i was exaggerating on how contradictory things were
-again, this is an explanation, not an excuse, i realize my mistakes and i really am sorry, i dont expect to be forgiven but i hope to at least make people understand my point of view
i hope this helps to sort some of the issues out, and if you have any further questions/statements, you can message me privately, and i hope to clear up anything you might not understand

Color Reference Guide to Recognize & Avoid Whitewashing

I’ve made a tutorial on how to color adjust to fix washed out coloringsbut I noticed people aren’t always sure when their coloring needs fixing in the first place. So I’ve made a bunch of colorings you can use to compare your own to. It’s designed to help avoid whitewashing, but also help avoid over-correction.

If you’re not a content creator, you can also use this guide for reblogging as well. :)

Using the Guide

  • Each set comes in three: cool, neutral, and warm. If your coloring is bluer/whiter than the cool tone, consider readjusting.
  • Examples of what might be too pale/bright are beneath each set
  • There are various categories (daytime, night scenes, etc) for each type of scene you might encounter
  • Each coloring has a color palette beneath for the highlights, midtones, and shadows of the character’s face. If you’re having trouble eyeballing it, use the eyedropper tool to double check.

NOTES
1) For the sake of simplicity, I’ve used one character per category, but characters of color are not interchangeable. Identify the skin tone for the character you’re coloring and work with that. This is only meant to give a frame of reference for what is and isn’t whitewashing

2) If any of the colorings look different than what they’ve been stated as (i.e. the cool tones look too warm or some look way too dark to be visible) calibrate your monitor. It means your screen color and gamma needs readjustment.

Guide itself is under the read more!

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 titles. 

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 with information.

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?

…well.

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. 

I do not want anyone to experience what I had.

i haven’t finished me:a yet - and i will! i want to know the rest of the story. but this game has already burned me way too many times. i’m sorry i can’t be more positive - trust me, i tried, i have been holding out hope despite every shitty thing that happens and all the garbage i see, but… i just can’t do it anymore.

bioware is supposed to care about this. this is what they’re known for.
