So there's this semi popular comic going around in the Creepypasta fandom called PastaMonsters, created about the Creepypastas. Needless to say I hate this comic and it isn't anything personal but rather what is happening to a character that everyone seems to pass off.
I was scrolling through Laughing Jack fanart when I stumbled upon the PastaMonsters Wikia Page about him. Naturally, I read through the article to find out how his character was being used and needless to say...
I. Was. Disgusted.
Here's the article link if you wish to see for yourself: villainsfanon.wikia.com/wiki/L…
Laughing Jack was being portrayed as an arrogant asshole of a bully who had little to no remorse or shame. Was it a surprise the other Pastas came up with revenge for his behaviour? No, no it wasn't.
What was a surprise was what those forms of revenge were!
As a consequence for his actions he was:
- Physically abused
- And bullied...
I was disgusted. Yes he was a bully, but no bully deserves that severity of a punishment for their actions... Bully or no bully, Laughing Jack did not deserve repeated abuse as his punishment.
I haven't read the comic nor am I planning to, but frankly, just seeing what's happening to a character who physically and mentally, as well as psychologically needs help, I wouldn't ever give this comic a second chance.
What appalled me even more was the fact that everyone felt that he deserved these harsh and traumatic actions! The creator themselves said that they created Laughing Jack's character with the sole purpose of being a hated character!
I don't know about you, but if I heard that a bully was getting harmed in cruel and unjustified reasons such as sexual assualt and torture, I wouldn't think that they deserved it. The reality is: Just because someone is a bully and has possibly wronged you, most certainly does not mean you get to put them through physical torture and abuse as revenge...
The worst part for L.J. Is that he can't escape what's happening to him. Sure he could leave Slenderman's household, but where would he go? Zalgo [his torturer] sure as hell ain't taking him in and giving him help. The normal result for an individual would be suicide, but being immortal, L.J. doesn't have this option as he physically can not die. Thus, his life will always be a never-ending nightmare of rape, torture and abuse, until the Creepypastas get bored of hurting him.
So: I had my topic for the drawing, now what to do with it?
Easy. Show the impact of these actions of L.J. as a character. No person, sane or insane, will be emotionless towards the sort of stuff PastaMonsters LJ is going through. So, show the audience what he hides from the viewers. What lies under his makeup.
Warning: If you like this comic and are going to argue with me I will hide you comment and pretend you never came. So before you argue, think.
