Q&A Lord of Shadows (mild spoilers)

ihatethecoldpeace said: 1.How did you create Julian? He’s my favourite character, and I’d really wanna know how did you create his personality and weaknesses. And how not to cry every time you think about him. 

 It’s hard to separate out Julian’s creation process from that of the whole Blackthorn family. I knew I wanted to write about a big family with lots of siblings, and I figured out early on that Julian was going to be the one in charge. But I also knew that I wanted Julian to have other things going on as well—his art, his feelings for Emma, the ruthless streak when it comes to protecting the people he loves. I see Julian as an example of someone who has dealt with extremely adverse circumstances in ways that were pretty effective, especially considering how young he was when he took charge. But part of the plot of TDA is that no one can manage everything, no matter how skilled they are at scheming and manipulation. The situation that the Blackthorns were in was precarious and unsustainable. Eventually something was going to give. That loss of control was not an accident—I always knew it would happen, and that it would be formative to how Julian (and all the other characters) continue to grow and learn and change, which you’ll get to read about in Queen of Air and Darkness.

There is also a general rule of mine I often try to put into play when creating characters: say you have to pick one overall word to describe your character. They seem in general to be kind, fun-loving, angry, caretaking, etc. So most of the things you know about them, from their habits to their interactions with others, will lean in that same direction as their major characteristic. In Julian’s case it was caretaking: making pancakes, being generally gentle, artistic, loving, baby-cuddling, etc. (It was part of gender-flipping Emma and Julian, making her the revenge-seeking warrior and him the nurturer.) Then he has this one other major characteristic that we find out about as we get to know him, which is this fairly intense ruthlessness when it comes to protecting his family. That characteristic cuts against the grain of the others, complicating his character — and we all know complicated characters are the most fun and interesting, right? :) I try to do the same work with most major characters, and I usually break it down as an exercise before I even start writing them. It’s a reminder that real people often have directly oppositional personality aspects, and so should characters, and that what we love most about them is often exactly that space where the opposing parts of their personality meet (Magnus is fun-loving and freewheeling — but also deeply serious, wise, stable, and cynical.)

How about 28 and creation of 5.0.5. Could be paperhat or implied paperhat, your choice

”This is why we can’t have nice things.”

Blackhat stood with his hands on his hips, eyebrows raised, bearing witness to the disaster occurring in front of him. Flug had been about to show him his newest invention, a serum that could animate an inanimate object and give it an aggressively protective personality over whoever created it, but with only a few hours a sleep under his belt the doctor had become increasingly clumsy. So, when he went to grab the serum off his desk, he’d accidently knocked it aside, and over half of it had spilled onto a flower that Flug had been tending to in his off hours.

Flug cursed and righted the flask before it could empty, but he groaned in frustration.

“Ah jeez, Blackhat sir, I-I’m so so sorry,” he stuttered. Blackhat was tempted to yell and get angry about the screw up, but when he heard the scientist yawn he realized just how hard the man had been working without rest. So Blackhat grasped Flug’s shoulder and took the flask and set it on the counter.

“Go get some rest, Flug,” he ordered. “You can show me the invention tomorrow when you’re well rested.” Flug seemed ready to protest, but Blackhat halted him with a “if you don’t go to sleep now, I will get angry.” Flug relented, and trudged off towards his room. Meanwhile, Blackhat glanced at the flower that was seemingly shivering in it’s pot. Then he shrugged and walked off towards his study to make a few phone calls.

The next morning…

Flug walked into the lab with his hand under his bag to rubbing the sleep away from his eyes. He shook his head a few times to dispel the grogginess, and then he turned to his lab to find-

“What the hell!” Flug shouted. Lying on the desk on top of a broken flower pot sat a small furry creature. The thing yawned and stretched as Flug cautiously approached, and then it locked its gaze onto him.

“My serum must have created you,” Flug whispered revertantly. “But… I would have thought you would have been bigger… and more bodyguard like…” Now standing over the creature, Flug reached down to touch it fearfully. The small thing made a noise like a small puppy and stuck it’s tongue out. Then Flug’s fingers touched down on it’s fur-covered head and it made an excited squealing noise and rubbed upwards into his palm.

Flug’s heart melted.

Suddenly, the little monster found itself scooped up and level with the doctor’s face. The bear shaped animal was barely as big as both of Flug’s hands, and that made the scientist grin even wider. When it swiped a paw out and papped Flug on the nose beneath his bag, that was what sealed his fate.

“I’m gonna keep you safe forever and ever little guy,” he said under his breath. “I should give you a name through… huh…” Looking around, Flug spotted the label of the serum that had created the creature before him, first. He felt extremely awkward for even thinking that it could be a  good name, but then again, Flug had never been the one to name experiments. “You’re gonna be called 5.0.5.; named after the invention that created you.”

Then Blackhat walked in.

“What. Is. That?” the eldritch inquired. Flug, still utterly entranced by his new friend, went running up to Blackhat and held his arms out to present the little bear.

“This is 5.0.5, sir!” he exclaimed. “They were grown out of the serum spill yesterday!” The little creature’s head flower perked up and it stuck it’s tongue out again as Blackhat examined it.

“It does not seem very … protective…” Blackhat grumbled. Flug’s enthusiasm burnt out for a moment, as he pulled his new friend back to his chest.

“Well.. I… I think that may be because of…” Flug scrambled to come up with a valid reason. “Because… Oh!! It’s probably because a flower isn’t an inanimate object! I mean, it doesn’t move much to our eyes, but it’s alive and functioning nonetheless, so something different must have happened to create this little guy.”

“So are you telling me that this creature won’t be a fearsome bodyguard for us?”

“Well, probably not, sir…”

“Then dispose of it.” Flug’s functioning ground to a stop.

“I… what?”

“Get rid of it?”

“B-but sir! I want to keep it!” Blackhat tilted his head in question.

“Why?” Without thinking about it, Flug became protective over his creation; his chest puffing out, and his legs taking a strong stance.

“Because I love this little creature, and want to keep it safe,” Flug stated firmly. “Even you have to agree that it’s awful cute, right!?” The bear was shoved into Blackhat’s face and he found himself unable to move. The creature blinked it’s big wet eyes, and then leaned forward to bap it’s nose into the space between Blackhat’s eyes. This caused something in Blackhat’s chest  to squeeze violently.

When Flug brought 5.0.5 back to his own face, and snuggled at it, the thing in Blackhat’s chest nearly squeezed so hard he feel to his knees.

Holy shit that cute, Blackhat thought. Before he could change his mind the eldritch wheezed out,

“You can keep the bear.”

Then he straightened himself back up to standing while trying to hide his flustered state by fixing his suit coat. Therefore, he wasn’t prepared for Flug throwing his arms around his shoulders for a hug in his excitement, after setting 5.0.5 on a nearby counter.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, Blackhat sir!!!” he shouted. At this point, Blackhat was almost sure that his heart was going to explode form emotional overload.  As soon as Flug let go, Blackhat gave the doctor a curt nod and made towards the exit. When he glanced over his shoulder, he could see Flug animatedly talking to the 5.0.5 creature, and nearly shaking from joy.

Blackhat left the lab knowing that his next stop was going to be his bed, so that he could find a pillow to scream all of his extra emotions into. Flug was going to be killing him twice as fast with his new companion, so he might as well take the opportunity to extend that time by at least a little bit.

Hey anon, I hope you like this little short fic! i went with adding some cute paperhat at the end cause Blackhat is gonna die over how cute his scientist is, but yeah! i think 5.0.5 was created on accident and so, this is kinda of how I interpreted that! I hope you like this and thank you for the request!

also i feel like the fact that some of the biggest/best youtube horror peeps are pretty anti-being a piece of shit to marginalized groups says something about how “uncomfortable” media can really open your eyes to the real horrors of the world

Me: o h  n o

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?


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.

hi can I get a fuckin uhhhhhhh

badass, accomplished, intelligent leader Lance who is strong in his own right and doesn’t need to be coddled and doesn’t take shit from others AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY LISTEN TO HIM AND RESPECT HIM

“I wouldn’t be makin’ fun of anyone’s ears if I were you, pointy,” Gimli said peaceably.


“That’ll teach you to mock a Dwarf’s height,” Gimli said, and he grinned again.

“Pointy,” Legolas said under his breath, scowling, and one of his hands surreptitiously crept up to finger the sharp tip of his ear.

a scene from @determamfidd‘s Sansûkh

So my english teacher just gave us a speech yesterday on how “Plastic is the one to blame on homosexuality because is scientifically proven that it has a chemical that makes people more feminine.” 

And like yeah it’s stupid nonsense (and p dang homophobic mixing femininity with homosexuality) and its obviously something fake he believed bc he believes everything he listen on fucking conspiracy white gringos videos on youtube.

But you know what? I am buying it, plastic is gay now, I’m sorry straighties
