...I know there is no way for me to actually change what is going on, but, just thought I'd share a thought about it...
Puppeteer has grown A LOT in popularity lately. People actually consider him to be canon now, hell, people don't even know I'm the original creator of him and get so freaking surprised when they actually find out. It's been a wild ride ever since I posted his story, received a lot of fan art, praise. It's been a lot of fun, but to where a lot of fun also comes a few things that will annoy you and kind of ruin things for you.
Still, he's just my baby. I've taken my fair share of stress and worry when writing his story, uncomfortable with having to deal with criticism, because fuck I'm the worst person ever to get criticism handed my way. With all of this said, I've been hell serious about him and his story. I've actually put so much effort into him, I've been at breaking in two at times on and off. But others...aren't taking it as seriously.
I love fan art.
I love everything.
But when people step over the line a bit, to make out Puppeteer like something he's not, I can't help but to sit and wonder just...why. Some things are fun! Some things are definitely enjoyable! But when these certain things start to take effect on how people see my creation, and in a canon way, I kind of need to say...Just stop.
The Puppeteer isn't there to somehow fulfill anyone's romantic, sexual, desirable needs. Please people, do remember that he is in fact a killer, a coldblooded murderer and he wouldn't give a two rat shit about hurting anyone's feelings or anyone's well being at all. When he hurt people he's at his best. He feels like the king of the world when someone is crawling at his feet. He wouldn't care about loving anyone, unless he'd be using them for his own sick twisted mind and play a game.
Hell, he doesn't even have deep feelings for any of his proxies. He sees them as a tool, something he can use for a long time and feed off from them. He'd never give them actual love, unless he'd gain something in return.
So please stop objectifying him as something he's not.
As long as it's a fun thing.
I don't give a shit.
But when it's stepping over the line, when people are fighting over who should date who in comments and what not, just...stop. Stop.
Have all the fun you want.
Just don't ruin this fun for me.
