In case you didn't get to see this post on Puppy Chulo, below is the revised slash updated blog of my original post to include even more of my character's specifics PLUS SCREENCAPS, it is being re-reposted publicly (for the last time, I hope), so you can see it, and maybe reach out to me to talk like you said you wanted to do (evidenced below).
So, by now, a fair amount of you have heard/seen that I've been accused of ripping off someone's character. So, let's clarify some things.
First of all, my
character was originally created somewhere around the end of 2005/2006
. I had him back on MySpace, first with an Oskar L face, but I changed it to Dylan after he outgrew that face.
-- I stand corrected. It was 2017 when I brought him back (to this
site | Signup Date:
April 17, 2017), I changed his face to G-Eazy. His name also changed from Noel to Julian. I just have a thing for the name Julian, I always have. His story, however, has remained the same. With only minor alterations along the way (as other writers retired or we lost touch after MySpace went down the crapper and sitemodel decided it wanted to turn its back on us). He is a member of a Gypsy troop that runs a travelling circus/carnival - his primary job is working with the animals, keeping the groomed, fed, clean their area, etc. It's not a glamorous job. His family was very magic oriented, and relied heavily on magic (including, but not limited to) spells, potions, salves, charms, etc. They also firmly believed in the afterlife and being able to communicate with them. It was tradition.
When Julian was about twelve years old, his troop was attacked by what seemed to him to be a pack of wolves or rabid dogs. They were werewolves, actually. And he was bitten and turned... but he is unaware of him actually being a werewolf because he blacks out during his episodes. He dabbles in the magic aspect while travelling with his troop, but not for himself or because he likes
it. He does it to entertain carnival goers mostly before the show (he sticks mostly to cards - as in, card tricks and card readings)
. But he will occasionally mess around with 'contacting spirits'. Most of the time, it's a joke to pass the time before a show. Other times, it gets too real for him, too fast. Once in a blue moon, he will get calls, specifically from people that knew his parents, or people that were referred to him by people that knew his parents, for him to communicate with the dead for them. He hates getting these calls, and will put off answering the phone, or calling back (because he lets most calls go to voicemail) because he doesn't want to deal
with that. He hardly ever takes on a 'client' if they're not someone his parents met once upon a time. And this is because he doesn't talk about
his magic based upbringing. Ever
. And he will deny
it, if someone he's not familiar with brings it up. Why? Because he's not proud
of it. He doesn't necessarily believe this stuff, but he goes along with it because it was how he was brought up.
So, please. If anything else is a problem, you can go ahead and contact me on discord or line to talk about it. And, yes. I have screencaps proving the date my character was first created, including the MySpace page, caps of the text documents I created for this character, etc etc. If me using G-Eazy is the main problem for you, all you have to do is say so and I will gladly
switch back to Dylan. The only reason I didn't use Dylan when I brought him to roleplayer.me is because I was/am using Dylan for Ziggy. I mean, seriously, Julian's character details even still have the smile tattoo listed under tattoos.

- the only
reason I added you (or, tried to)
and commented your status(es) was because you
said you wanted
to talk. So, I went to find you to talk. That's it. I can't 'remove all traces of'
your character if I don't even know what those traces are. Hence the need for a discussion
. I'm not attacking you, I'm not stalking you, and I have no desire to make you uncomfortable on the site. If I did, I'd still be commenting on your things and posting status after status about you. I'm not. Because I am of the belief that the best way to solve a problem is through communication
. And the ONLY reason this is public
, is because you refuse to talk to me like you claim to want to do, but continue to rant about how I allegedly 'stole' your creation.~*~*~*CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A LARGER PREVIEW*~*~*
