Breaking My Silence on the Creepypasta Fandom
For the first time in two years, I am going to use this feature of Deviantart. This message is for the "creepypasta" community on this site: Stop. You don't understand creepypasta. You refer to yourselves as members of a "fandom". This is like saying you are in the loch ness monster fandom, or the yeti fandom. You create OCs, when you should instead create characters. You write fanfiction when you could write stories.
In short, you don't know what the point of creepypasta is. It is not anime, nor My Little Pony, nor a blockbuster franchise. It is something so much simpler, and so much bigger than any of that.
I do not expect to change any minds, especially the minds of the 14 year olds who largely make up this site. I also realise this is not very polite. Perhaps some of the older members will read this and find some entertainment in it. Perhaps I will hurt a young teenager's feelings. However, I care too much to be polite, and this cannot remain just a thought in my head any longer. T

Ren'Py: Childhood Friends Contest Entry : Fly
Aoi was my first, best friend. I had other friends, and all of them meant a lot to me, but Aoi meant the most to me. What can I say? She was fun to be around, sweet, friendly, not at all bad to look at. But what stands out to me most of all when I think about the days we spent together, I remember that more than anything, she loved flying.
She had never once stepped into a commercial flight. She had never needed to. Even though her feet never left the ground, save for those times when she would jump into the air like a bird about to take flight, she made up for it. She, I, my little sister named Kimiko, our friend Fuyumiko, and good old Hiura, would climb to the top of Soubako Hill where the ancient cherry tree would release it’s blossoms each spring, and we would fly kites, or paper airplanes or gliders.
I don’t think any of us quite loved flight in the same way Aoi did, but she radiated that love into all of us. We found ourselves enjoying it almost as much as she did, an

I am Shoji Amasawa (alias), founder, writer, and organiser for PaperDoor Studios. We are currently working on the visual novels EVOLVEd: Echoes of the Codex War, and One Night Of [Snow]. I will post promotional art, sketches, and random art here!
I also design logos. My rates are $50 if it is an independent commercial project, $70 if it is for an independent group or company, $20 if it is a well organised independent free project, or an art trade if it is just you, your best friend, and their grandmother (or cannot pay). Big corporations will need to pay in the thousands, because God knows they are richer than He is! (If he is real, that is!)

PaperDoor Studios' artist, truefaiterman is doing a livestream on the 25th, 19:00 Spain time, to show the colouring of one of the sprites for our upcoming game One Night of [Snow]. Bookmark this video if you want to watch it.

With EVOLVEd : Echoes of the Codex War finally out (though an update is planned) work has been shifted completely to One Night of [Snow]. Not to say I have only been working on that, though! I got work as scenario writer for himekanoda of C-ify Studio's next project. My logo work is going well, and I finally got commissioned to design a vehicle!

I recently needed to see my doctor on account of a certain oral malady, but that was extremely minor, and strangely funny.

Hey just dropping a line to see how you're doinig havn't talked in a while hope you're doing well.

I appreciate you checking in! I am doing very well. Aside from checking up on my favorite artists and getting into arguments over the anti-intellectualism of Jurassic World, I have been taking it easy with posting to DeviantArt. Currently, I am in the process of publishing my first book under something closer to my real name, details of which can be found on my blog (yes, my last name is actually Seven).

In short, this page is a holdover from when I was young and trying to be cool and edgy. I'm now trying to work as my real self.

Not Steven—Seven, like the number (7)! Not to worry, that throws everyone off. Thank you for your well-wishes, my friend. I will always check in to see what you're up to, and happily reply to any comments you make. Best of luck to you as well!
