There's gotta be a missing piece with storm anon over there. Maybe tumblr are something? Maybe the message before the storm anon said that they were replaced meant that someone else went on as Storm anon and sent that? Cause literally anyone can turn on anon and say theyre someone else. So maybe you were talking to two people? Or maybe Tumblr ate an ask or didn't let their message go through? Idk man but it's weird, are you alright my friend?
Yeah, there was a lot of weirdness with that whole thing.
My conclusion now, at the start of this new day, is they were probably a troll. My suspicions are due to the following evidence:
1) Their first messages were very sweet, but very vague, other than asking me about my follower count–no mentions of Thomas, of my art, of my writing, nothing. Just “you’re amazing, how many followers do you have?” I believe they were ‘feeling out’ my blog, to see if I had enough followers to be worth messing with.
2) After they had obtained that number, they sent a couple more nice messages, then things started to get weird. They started building this narrative in the asks trying to make me look bad, or trying to confuse me, or both.
3) Once I issued an ultimatum and said I’d block them if they didn’t start giving me straight answers, they stopped responding. In other words, they’d gotten as much ‘fun’ out of me as they could, and there was no point to keep up the ‘game.’
4) There were very long pauses between their replies, making me think I may not have been the only blog they were messing with.
I don’t know if any of this is true, but if I don’t hear back from them that’s what I’m going to assume. If I do ever hear back, I figure it’ll go one of two ways: either they’ll explain what was wrong and we can work it out like adult humans, or they’ll continue their little drama narrative, and I’ll block them and delete the asks without posting. Either way, I’m done with the weirdness.
I’m publishing this so that no one else who was involved last night will have to wonder what’s up. :) Thank you all for offering your thoughts/concerns!
If on the off chance something strange really DID happen–an eaten ask, or a case of ‘stolen anon identity,’–then I’ll be more than happy to chat with them and sort things out. Otherwise, I’m done with this.
As one last side note: if I ever say or do (or SEEM to say or do) anything that feels mean or offensive to any of you guys, all you have to do is talk to me. I’m a human, so I make mistakes. But I’m a human who would very much like to learn to be a better human, so I’m happy to try to learn from them. And it is never, ever, ever my intention to hurt any of you guys.
Love you all!
Storm anon, if you were a troll, I hope you had fun! But this playground is closed now.
