Explanation

Wed Jan 29, 2014, 2:34 PM
I'm gonna just copy and paste what I posted on instagram here. AND BY SAYING THIS I MEAN NO OFFENSE TO ANYBODY. Im not calling everybody in the creepypasta fandom this i mean you all should know that I've been a part of it for the longest time and I know a lot of great people who are perfectly amazing and are in the creepypasta fandom YADDA YADDA YADDA . 
here.

Guysguysguysguysguys You've all probably noticed by now I haven't drawn anything creepypasta related for awhile and that's with good reason. Not everybody in the creepypasta fandom does it, trust me I know I've been in the fandom for maybe 2 years but the fandom is full of really annoying weeaboo, Mary Sue, jeff the killer wannabe fan girls/boys who have obviously forgotten the meaning of Creepypasta and that's to make and share original horror stories. HORROR stories. Not stories featuring a smoking hot sugoi teenage sex god serial killer whose sole purpose is to be paired up with people's over-powered, poorly developed OC. And that's most certainly NOT the reason I made Ticci-Toby, I made him because I wanted to be a part of a horror community and contribute to the Creepypasta fanbase which at the time I wasn't aware mainly consisted of those kinds of people. After I've been confronted with numerous 11 year old creepypasta wannabes who create their own cliche persona and threaten to kill people over the Internet with pixelated knife emoticons. Not to mention the extremely rude and disrespectful people who I've encountered. Not too long ago I had a confrontation with some ass who wrote a smut fanfiction of MY character in which I didn't feel comfortable with and politely asked them to remove, but instead of doing as they were asked they call me an idiot for not expecting this kind of stuff of my character when I made him and put up a fight. To be completely honest this whole thing isn't even remotely fun anymore. Being a part of a fandom who will disrespect you like that. Idk if I'm going to quit completely or what. I'm not going to stop drawing Slenderman because he kinda is his own thing he doesn't completely have to tie in with creepypasta and quite honestly ill always love Slenderman but for the rest of the characters n stuff ill probably just not pay any mind to.

Personal the creepypasta fandom is fine. To those who like it and such and don't kill people over it. My friend got bashed recently for placing the oc ticci-Toby into a yaoi pairing with another creepypasta. I don't see it in poor taste when the character paired up with another of its own kind, maybe its not your thing but still. both are the same genre, same fucking story basically. Both horror charaters and another thing is I don't see ALOT of female creepy-pasta charaters either way so whos to say their not that way? Or straight? it just find it odd and somewhat irratting... No offence I understand uour point, and this is my opion.

Kastoway doesn't want Toby to be paired and sweetheart that person who "bashed" on your friend was me. Creepypasta isn't fine because they contaminated the horror genre with smut,yaoi and shippings. I don't see that being done with Freddy Kruger,Jason Vorhes and other classical horror icons. Creepypasta was meant to be scary,not sexy.

I can understand your reasoning behind that, however if I have looked and read correctly the supposed pairing for Ticci Toby is supposed to be clockwork right? Then why can't I find either in the creators gallery for her or the supposed partner being Ticci Toby or anywhere in generally that their is no origin story of their meeting and becoming a couple? That's probably where a majority of misunderstands is coming from cause their is no story behind them being a couple. Now the only place I have found where I can find "Clockwork" origin story isn't in the creators gallery but on a site called "WattPad" and that's it. Their nothing ANYWHERE on her at all, now if they simple haven't gotten to making it that's fine, but that's probably the main reason why the pairing is not popular to begin with. Since "Clockwork" doesn't have an official origin with Ticci Toby story most people are going to assume that he has no legit partner, also I'm not a huge fan of it though I do admit like some of the CreepyPasta stuff, and am trying to get more involved into the fandom I don't see why people should be bashed for the yaoi, I can understand the smut, but still. Were all humans and people are going to make such picture, drawings, photos and ect. whether another person likes it or not, that just how a human being works. Were built to defy those we disagree with as we are to defend those we do agree with that's just human nature. If clockwork and Ticci Toby were to have an origin story placed up about them becoming a couple then the couple pairing would skyrocket instead of the yaoi and such though it wouldn't be gone for good, people would still make it regardless of what you, me or anyone else said or did. I understand that he WANTS Ticci Toby with Clockwork, but because their no story of them together anywhere, most people will assume he has no partner. I'm not trying to be rude or mean, I am just stating what I read, seen and researched of the argument. Personally both characters are wonderful, but I can't seem them as a "Couple" paring even if he was to be paired with a guy or another girl unless given a reason too, though again I do like both as their own indivual characters.

if the creators say its canon its canon. they maybe working on a story about it for all you know. also kastoway has all the say in how peoplr may use his character. he recently made it clear on tumblr he isnt okay with smut or other pairings that include toby. you need to understand that you cant do whatever you want with someone else's creation. its disrespectful.

I am, since I probably won't do anything with the character maybe then draw it if I feel like it as for everyone else their nothing we can do about it. their going to do as they please again regardless of what others say. Like I said the characters were interesting, but i'm not a huge fan of the fandom in general, so I probably wouldn't do much with the oc other then fav picture or story's with him, other then that its no existing to me. As for what others do, theirs nothing I can do to stop them. Pepole are going to make the stuff wheter we like it or not, and I do understand he doesn't like the idea and I must say being in the same spot I probably would too be upset, but again people are people. We can't change everyone.

This is really late for me to comment (I think) and I have no right to get myself involved, but I completely understand. Creepypastas are stories to be shared and all that. I mean hey they were originally called "Creepypaster." Stories to be copy and pasted for people's amusement. But I mean hey Toby is your character, and you do what you want with him. (just don't get rid of him completely) so if there are people who are being rude about the whole fandom thing then I don't blame you for distancing yourself from it. (I wouldn't like it if someone wrote smut about my O.C.'s either).

I understand that a lot of others have commented their opinions on this journal and that I may just be blowing smoke into an already smoky sky. I just still feel the need to say something. First of all, I just want to state how jealous of your art style and creativity I am. I can only hope that the characters I'm working on could be as interesting and as loved as your OC's have become. I can feel the love you put into each line of back story and each shade of color in picture. Looking at your drawings and reading your descriptions on the characters held within inspire me to draw better. To learn new ways to turn a blank page or blank pixels into something beautiful and worth looking at.
And now the main reason I guess I started typing to a complete stranger. Your character Toby. As a fellow artist and (hopefully future) author, it pains me to watch another's creations be marred and kicked around metaphorically like Toby has been by the wanna-be fan boys/girls. In my opinion all the people that have done so or made fan-based characters to be shipped with the Creepypastas (Toby included) can go jump off a cliff for the humiliation and agony that they have suffered the creators of all those wonderful characters.
Toby happens to be my favorite and I find myself looking though your pages reading every word you post about him just so I can keep the personality you gave him right in my head. Yes I have my fan girl moments; we all have moments. However it is my stance that no one should ever try to change another, and that goes for those who live on paper/pixels. Toby is perfect just the way you created him and no one should ever take that accomplishment away from you.
I just have one thing to ask of you if I may. Its that you don't stop drawing him. Please. I'm going out on a limb saying this in open comments, but I feel a connection to Toby. I may not be a trouble maker or see sharks in my dish water but there are things he went though that somehow reflect things from my past. Abuse and lose being the two main ones.
I can understand if you decide to pack it up and never draw Toby again. I would have a hard time drawing/writing about Kaji if people started doing to her what others have done to Toby. So if you do put him away I just want to thank you for the time you have spent on him. I thank you for bringing him to life in the minds of those whom actually respected him and could relate to him. He's not just alive on the media to which you have drawn him on but in the hearts and minds of the many that you have touched. I know that for me, even if I never get to see a new picture of Toby that you have made, he will still forever live in my heart.
I know that this is long winded and a lot to read, but if you are still reading this Kino-sama, Thank You. Thank you for taking time out of your life to hear me out, and most of all for creating such beautiful life in your artwork.

I'm glad there are still people who have sense. Creepypasta has really been going down hill with all these new 'fans'. I have always been a fan of horror, since I was too small to know of such things. I've always had a love for things violent, dark, and creepy. I'm disappointed with what these people have done to the Creepypasta. I only heard about creepypasta a year or so ago, and all this X reader X oc pics and stories anger me and so many of these people haven't even read the pastas!!!  I myself won't leave the fandom (at least not yet), I'll try to get more horror in there.


And I have heard about that smut fanfiction. I had come across a journal entry while looking  through some of Ticci-Toby's fanart that mentioned your argument. That person even said that they were going to post more on other websites to avoid you.  I can't believe

people like that. They make me sick. I don't care for those kind of people and want nothing to do with them.

I'm with you here.  :)

I have to say I am quite disappointed in the turn that the community has taken...however I will say that that doesn't mean we have to assimilate to it. Some people are just...creative (used very lightly) in the fandom they choose to be a part of. Which I will not say is either good nor bad. But simply put it does distract from what creepypasta was created to be for. In fact bc of this problem I've actually been thinking of deleting some of my OC's...I do hope you will not leave the community completely, given that you are such a gifted and highly respected member. At least in my eyes :33 *hugs you*  but do whatever makes you happy, sir. I will not deny you your happiness bc of selfishness. :)
