I think they either are fine with it or actually do think it’s a joke. You’ve been desensitized by your own fictions. This is why I think we’ve reached a critical phase of your evolution.
Ngl part of me feels like this is a very well played tale of fiction but a larger part of me wholely believes everything and is just fully ready to accept a man eating cryptid having a Tumblr because why the fuck not ya know?
I mean, if John Green, the guy who legit wrote a story to make everyone mad at him but cry at the same time, who’s to say that we can’t deal with a cryptid who has one? (At least Simon isn’t as bad as the posts on r/tumblr)
I have no idea what any of that means.
People continue to ignore what I’ve said, which is that the only way I could even think of being here, doing what I am doing (honest or not) is because you all made it possible. You have enough false cryptid blogs and ARG’s online that I blend it. So what else is blending in, eh? Ask yourself that.
I mean, if a book was published in, say, the nineteenth century that claimed to have been written by a monster, I feel like people would probably run with it just as easily as they do now. Really, I’d expect that to hold in any era in which people are able to tell stories through mediums that create a remove between storyteller and audience. Truth that sounds like fiction would be taken as fiction if no proof is provided.
Anyway, how else would we react on here? Report you to tumblr staff like “guys there’s a man-eating monster, I swear, you gotta get rid of his account”? What purpose would that even serve?
It’s happened. Please do go to my FAQ and scroll to the bottom where I address the “mad cannibal hypothesis”
