these are a couple excerpts from a paper i wrote for my english class on the internet and identity. not my best writing, just more of an interesting story.


"This story centers around a young girl, barely 15. It started with a click on a link to join an online forum called GaiaOnline, followed by a swift post on the forum to introduce herself and harvest some company. Shortly after, a camera fell into the young girl’s hot little hands; greasy fingerprints stained the record button as she pressed it. A final click on the Upload Video button on YouTube sealed her beautifule. Permanently etched in the online realm were her face and story, and she was unable to turn back the hands of time. Three years ago her name was Catie Wayne, my childhood best friend. Now it is Boxxy, Queen of the internet. The video featured her introducing herself as “Boxxy” and talking about an online friend from Gaia, the web forum. With a quirky personality, adorable face, humorous expressions, and an apparent “je ne sais quoi,” she scaled up the great mountain of Internet fame. Starting from merely one of thousands on Gaia and YouTube, she has captured the attention and hearts of more than millions of people. However on the internet, no one can have a great number of fans unless there is a great or equal amount of haters. I have been best friends with Catie for 12 years and have witnessed the fear and turmoil she has experienced. The content of the video is irrelevant; the effect was much more significant in shaping Catie into who she is today. Before the acceptance of fame, she endured a countless number of threats and harassment, which resulted in her hiding from the internet due to the development of shame and a skewing of her identity. The alteration of Catie’s online identity soon carried over into her real life, leaving her to hit the pause button on her online identity and question whether or not she was more Boxxy than Catie."

"Between Catie and the few people she was found to be connected to on the internet, it was a race against time to remove all of her personal information that had been mindlessly stained into the tangled webs of the internet. It was unbelievable the amount of information on Catie’s personal life has been plastered on display for anyone to take and smear around or threaten her with. Parts of Catie’s identity that were forever captured by the snares of the World Wide Web had been skewed by a few nameless faces."

"To me, “Boxxy” will always be Catie, my best friend since 1st grade. To everyone else, she will either be a topic of ridicule or love, based on the minute to two minutes they have witnessed of her. Some extremists will devote all of their time to her. Some will spend every waking moment trying to dismantle her and compromise all of her personal affairs online and off."

". She realizes that the person whom she portrayed was not really her, but accepts Boxxy as a slight entity of herself. “Boxxy is and always will be a character,” Catie states, “I’m only her when I consciously try to be. Although often time’s people identify me as her and ignore who I am.” Although the internet has altered Catie’s online identity, and affected how she treats her real life identity, all of the support for Boxxy had inspired Catie to continue making videos and introducing even more characters than just Boxxy. This experience has shaped “Boxxy” into a new and improved Catie. She has moved to a new city in response to this and now has multiple fan sites and 600,000 hits when “Boxxy.” is googled. She also plans to create a YouTube partnership and utilize this experience as a stepping stool to further her career and develop her identity even more."

Hope you enjoyed~

I wanted more details about the extent of the threats and the changes she had to make in her life, but it was still good.

Also technically, you should have added up the minutes of the Boxxy videos and the Bambi In Power Park video instead of summing them up as 'one to two minutes' we have seen of her. But maybe that was your point, that it may as well have only been two minutes.

For English class..that works then. Its pretty colloquial, but exciting. The story is really as intense as the writing. Definately an interesting perspective on the phenomenon; had your prof been a fan I'm sure they would have shit brix.

I can't help but think that the parts she excluded are the real meat of it. And if this were a bit more drawn out, it could be a great piece of journalism.

it talks about 4chan and stuffs.
I say things about them id rather not post hah. xD

but obviously when Catie went into hiding it was a pretty terrifying and stressful time. D: the paper is about her being cyber bullied, essentially. so it isn't too happy until the end when I talk about her return to the Internet.

Yeah , must been so hard being harassed like that I cant even imagine, that is the thing that gets me, no one that makes 3 videos should be harassed like that, if Catie did hate speech videos then I could understand, but 3 funny videos and the first two was made for online friends, makes me sad to think how hatefull some are, even today some wan to attack Catie, I can not for one moment understand why.
Its a good thing she has friends like you Pocky.

Huh...is Pocky referring to the same "things" Catie refers to in Foar Everywun? And I thought that the "things" were her mentioning 4chan in Foar Ant...maybe not.

It seems like theres a bit of a Pandora's Box going on with this essay (and a lot of the information Catie, Pocky and the like have). As interested as I am in reading the whole piece, I can't blame Pocky for not wanting to share all of it.

Wow Pocky. I don't want to seem mean, but your writing style in the OP is ... not good.

You can dismiss my opinion as trolling or whatever. You of course don't have to listen to some anonymous guy on the internet, and there's plenty of other people here who will tell you what you want to hear.

I like the subject, and I like that you posted it, and I like you. But I can't lie to you about this. If you're not interested in honest opinions and genuine constructive criticism then I suggest you use your hot little hands to leave a greasy stain on the mouse button right now ...

Seriously I think I could enter that first paragraph into the Bulwer-Lytton Literary Parody Contest. It suffers from that level of problems.

Writers use language to paint a picture, to set a tone, to say things without literally saying them.

I'll stick to the opening paragraph here, which is so clunky it's barely readable, (eg. "with a click on a link to join").

The language is so trite it's as if you bought a cheap romance novel, rearranged the words on page one, and inserted your own names.

"centres around"? "shortly after"? "permanently etched"? Are you srs?
>> No. 2474
actually the purpose of the paper was to answer the prompt. you don't only get points for tossing around fancy words.
this actually isn't my best writing style as I indicted in my first post, but thanks for the criticism. however I will probably disregard it as you really haven't gotten a taste of my actual writing style. :) I'm actually quite proud of some of the other things I write.
>> No. 2475
It seems like you're trying a little too hard to impress somebody. It's cool man you don't have to prove yourself and try to use big fancy words around us.

Oh hai pocky! Midnight love <3
>> No. 2476
Do you always lurk? Because you seem to reply pretty quickly when you have something to say.
>> No. 2477
Your writing style is not that great either. You spent half the post saying that if she didn't like criticism she could gtfo, and another quarter saying what other people do, before finally getting down to what was wrong with her paper in your opinion all the way at the end.

No hostile, that's just the facts as I see them.

Ya, I know it's just a post on an imageboard, but I like pointing out peoples fallacies no matter what they are arguing about or for.

you think pockys text is clunky? Well have one of these:
>Captain Caito Calenius, Master of the Marches, mighty Ultramarines Lord of a Hundred rode to war on a comet of steel and flame. His banner, held proudly aloft, bore the Imperial Eagle and the Skull for gone was better versed in the craft of death than he. At his command, the Wardens of the Eastern Fringe, the blessed brothers of the Fith, gave battle to the beasts on Calth. At their Head, Galenius, Master of the Black Company, wreathed in the light Emporer's just wrath, sundered the horde and drove them before him. By day's end a man could walk for miles without touching the ground, so thickly was it littered with the bodies of the slain. So great was the triumph, that Lord Calgar granted the Laurels of Victory to be borne on the banner of the Fifth as testament for their piety

You should write an essay about Disneyland for English class, then post it here.

I went to Disneyland once. It was OK; I only spent a day there. I had a Fastpass, which made it a lot better. It wasn't nearly as good as Disneyworld. Although, I spent like a week at Disneyworld, and it's a lot bigger as I remember it.

>>2282 "hiding from the internet due to the development of shame and a skewing of her identity. The alteration of Catie’s online identity soon carried over into her real life"

I would like to hear you go into greater depth on this fateful point in Catie's life (and perhaps all our lives to some extent). Specifically, I was wondering, who provided the greatest emotional support for Catie, during all the harassment, and hardship she went through? Secondly, how did her classmates deal with all of this? Were they supportive, or did they bully Catie too? Furthermore, were there any anons that provided any support, or comfort, during all the chaos? Lastly, at what point did you, Catie, or others close to Catie, realize the amazing potential Catie has to be an actress/entertainer/media personality, as demonstrated by the passionate reactions she invokes on her viewers? Especially considering she can say so little, and garner such a strong reaction. That is essentially the most important element to being a top notch entertainer (making people care). More to the point, at what point was it realized that Boxxy already has an enormous fan base, which would give Catie an advantage to jump starting her (inevitable if she so chooses) career in entertaining millions across the world?
