It is heavily recommended you DO NOT join the Floraverse discord servers. You will be expected to fork over personal information and will be heavily scrutinized if deemed suspicious. You are required to share your deepest feelings and trauma which will then be used against you if you step out of line in the slightest. It is just not worth it.
If you frequented Deviantart or were a fan of Pokemon in the 2000s, you've more than likely seen PurpleKecleon's artwork. Melanie Herring (current legal name Ash Hazel Woods) is a self-diagnosed autistic nonbinary woman with BPD who was a very well-known artist with a very distinctive and vibrant painting style, posting artwork for mainly Pokemon, MLP, and Sonic.
Melanie has a long and well documented history of being a horrendous bitch. It would be impossible to go over everything here so I'll TL;DR as much as I can. The above useful links all highlight several of the various sagas surrounding Melanie, so if you want a much deeper dive then read those.
Past events:>Started posting pokeporn on dedicated forums at 15 years old, met her then adult now husband Marl and poly troon boyfriend Eevee through this and moved in together after turning 18>Took commissions for art of bestiality, incest, shotas, and rape while stating at the same she only accepts commissions for things she personally enjoys>Contributed to a cub magazine>Founded and hosted a Deviantart all ages roleplaying group Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers (PMDE). Melanie and her adult friends essentially bullied kids in the group they didn't like. Roleplay events would have oddly sexual elements like free items for all participants but the items were things like ball gags and maid outfits. Melanie would post links to side stories she wrote in this group without clarifying that the content would be pornographic. Since the adults in the group were all deviantart furries, it was infected with pedophiles.>Often posted pictures of herself naked with breasts exposed on social media>Her home is filthy and she takes baths with her hairless cats and then complains when she gets a UTI>Diagnoses herself with autism after viciously bullying children in her community that were autistic>When Melanie got tired of leading the group she stepped down and passed on ownership to a new team, then not long after she returned to shut down the group herself because she didn't like how the new team was running it. She then made her own website and original IP, Floraverse. It was promoted as an interactive webcomic, following a basic story but planned roleplaying events could alter the outcome>All characters are anthro genderspecial assholes with consent issues because Melanie doesn't know how to write characters that aren't herself>Registered under a creative commons license, meaning anyone is free to use her characters for any purpose legally>More commonly utilized by Melanie to lift characters from other people and make them her self inserts, or butcher their character if they piss her off>One guy donated a high enough tier on one of her kickstarters to have his character featured in the comic but later Melanie asked for ocs on Twitter because she needed them for background art. The donator's character was included in the comic in the same panels as the free ones from Twitter. When he spoke out about how he felt this was unfair Melanie erased his character from the comic entirely with no refund>Encouraged to make your own character because Melanie might put them in the comic!! Though this rarely if ever happened unless you were buttbuddies with Melanie or gave her money and the interactive premise was dropped almost immediately >Story becomes nonsensical and Melanie enters "The Magenta Era" washing all her artwork in eye straining shades of pink>Commonly steals ideas and designs from other ips (mainly nintendo and cartoons) but because Melanie is actually only talented at color theory any of her original designs are just several different features glued onto one design>ForbiddenFlora the offshoot 18+ site for pornographic comics and art gets much more focus than the main comic with essential lore and character development being locked behind shitty porn>Comics themselves are written so badly they come off as rape or dubcon which Melanie either denies is the case or gets very angry at anyone who mentions it>Melanie states she hopes kids read ForbiddenFlora secretly and discover they're gay and trans through it>Aggressive Twitter user with daily rant threads on subjects like Kiwifarms, those who don't like her, and her own fans. Often ignores fans who ask her questions directly and instead vagues them in a new tweet and questions their intelligence>Constantly asks what she did exactly that made so many people hate her and then when she is told why she will ignore it or say no u>Screams at people to block if they don't like her and then screams some more when she finds out she's been blocked
THE DOGFUCKING SAGA:>Marl (and Melanie and Eevee) owned a male intact German Shephard named Apollo>Early into the creation of the kf thread (2015) there were already rumors floating that Melanie's husband Marl (who also modded both PMDE and Flora) had a thing for zoophilia>User named Lain joins kf and said she talked to Marl as a kid in aoc chatrooms and he had shown her pictures of dog genitalia. She lost the original messages but had a picture of him that hadn't been seen before.>Melanie catches wind of this rumor and goes on a years-long tirade of both defending Marl and calling Lain a liar and a cumdumpster and various others because someone else who knew Lain emailed Melanie and said Lain had a history of entrapping adults. Yes, years. >What's Marl doing while Melanie defends his honor? He doesn't use social media lol>Later Bigfluff (BF) joins kf, talks to Lain privately. BF also knew Marl as a kid through Floraverse and had messages saved of Marl arranging for her to meet up with him and fuck his dog for money and sex toys, with the intent of posting it online.>Lain shares this with the class without BF's consent>BF gets in contact with a mod of Floraverse at the same time. She shows him the logs who then shows them to Marl. Marl confirms that he remembers who BF is and that the messages are legit. Mod goes on damage control and calls BF a liar right after confirming the logs are real.>When this news hits Twitter several more longtime Flora fans come forward and state Marl talked to them about the same topic>Melanie Marl and Eevee go dark on social media, sell their home, move into Marl's parents home, and legally change their names >Melanie announces she's divorcing Marl and then puts out a lengthy document about how everything bad she ever did was Marl's fault actually and she had no idea Marl was hiding this>Within this same document Melanie admits that Marl convinced her to have sex with a dog on camera for money early on in their relationship>Melanie knew about Marl and fucked this dog before Lain even originally came forward >Her story changes several times from "Marl would never do that" to "I had no idea he was into it" to "I knew he was into it but didn't act on it" to "I knew he showed our friends pornography of our own dog" to "I knew and Marl made me fuck a dog too">Continued to deface Lain and BF even after this all came out while continuing to blame Marl for all of her negative actions>Mentioned she's been in contact with him and implies she knows his current location or social usernames while refusing to give out this information and screaming at people to go after Marl instead of her>Never contacted law enforcement leaving the question of how much dirt Marl has over Melanie and Eeevee
The Discord saga:>Melanie retreats from social media after the previous saga and spends most of her time within her 2 Floraverse discords>1 server is a dedicated all ages roleplaying server, much like PMDE while the other is a general server that was originally stolen from Kiwifarms in its own retarded saga>Server is welcoming and friendly on the surface but on the inside Melanie and her closest lackeys verbally and mentally abuse their members under the guise of emotional therapy>Instead of banning problematic individuals Melanie will talk to them or send somebody else to and will try to "fix" them, this ranges anywhere from someone making someone else uncomfortable to literal pedophiles who were caught talking to kids. If she deems them rehabilitated they can stay in the server>Because the server is full of adult furry troons it is undoubtedly full of pedophiles >Leaks from those inside start surfacing on kf and Melanie's style of emotional manipulation earns the discord the cult title>Leaks continue to come out with Melanie only publicly naming pedos within the server when kf finds out she tried to cover it up>Members can be dragged into a public channel at any time to perform a "scene" which boils down to getting namecalled and talked down to because the mods don't like you>You're expected to be calm and polite the entire time while multiple users send you paragraphs on why you are a bad person and you have to agree with them or else you get banned and your friends are shunned if they stay in contact with you. You can't leave the channel or leave the scene unfinished without permission from the others or else you get banned and publicly defaced and all the members celebrate over how they never liked you anyway>While this is going on all other members of the server are observing your scene and commentating on it like it's a TV show>Server continues to lose members that immediately turn around and share what happened to them inside>Melanie attempts whatever she can to shut them up, be it blackmail, threats, or 100+ page long google docs where she blames Marl and talks about her feelings while ignoring issues the naysayer had with her specifically >Instead of directly looking at anything said against her Melanie plays retarded telephone by sending one of her lackeys to do it instead and report back to her with a sparknotes list, picking out one tiny detail to blow out of proportion. On more than one occasion she has sent minors to look at callouts against her that contained sexual imagery.>Requests anyone who has problems with her to contact her privately, will then verbally threaten or try to blackmail those who do
Recent happenings:>Ex-member who has followed Melanie since childhood releases a zine of her experience within the servers and reinforces the cult narrative (https://archive.is/2023.03.11-110825/https://twitter.com/pinnapop/status/1634421345613230081) Melanie responds by attempting to blackmail the ex-member.>Youtuber Insomniac Idiot XO releases a video essay about Floraverse (https://youtu.be/kpMxTSIhkFY) focusing mostly on the above zine. Melanie flips her shit over this and releases a 3 part podcast with her lackeys that is more than 6 hours long. IIXO releases a response essay soon after (https://youtu.be/Bn5XHYfzK7U)>Website Floraverseisacult.com goes live.>Within the week of this OP being drafted Melanie gets in contact with an ex-member who contributed a testimony to the website and her dogfucking story changes yet again with her now admitting she has fucked at least two separate dogs
- Eevee / LexyEevee / Evelyn Woods / Alex Munroe: Melanie's troon fiancée who encouraged kids to commit incest on old pokemon forums and argued zoophilia is morally ok. Transformation fetish more than likely influenced him trooning out, started estrogen but stopped taking it immediately when it made his dick stop working. Floraverse character is literally an Eevee made of rubber. Attempted a stupid Twitter debate about how possessing cp shouldn't be illegal and still gets shit on for it
- Marl / Marlcabinet / Lycus Argent Woods / Jayson Garcia: Melanie's pedozoo ex-husband who is still being run over under a bus years after Melanie ditched him. Dad is a cop. LOCATION UNKNOWN WITH MELANIE BEING AWARE AND PROTECTING HIM
- Opa-Opa13: One of Melanie's biggest simps/attack dogs who left his wife and daughter to work on Floraverse. Man in his late 30's who housed a 19 yr old Floraverse fan he had been sexting with even after being told he wasn't mentally stable enough for a roommate. Got sick of the fan and actively wished along with Melanie and several other that the fan was successful in their suicide attempt when Opa kicked them out of his house, then later spread rumours about the fan having bad hygiene. Has such a boner for a Floraverse character Melanie made his fanfiction canon
- Pengo / PengoSolvent: Longtime tif friend of Melanie, when the two had a falling out in the 2010s Pengo claimed that Marl had shown her zoo porn. Melanie responds by SUING Pengo who removes the claims and the case is dropped. Years later the two reconnect, Pengo is now a Floraverse mod who has her hands in most of the abuse that the server dishes out.
- Rina / Pinnapop: Ex-member and author of the above mentioned zine
- Iz / Woz / TanukiSyndrome / TanukiBathhouse: Floraverse member who confided with Rina about their similar sexual trauma (Rina was raped on a schoolbus, Iz raped someone on a schoolbus). Iz then uses Rina's trauma without her consent as the premise for a ForbiddenFlora comic with Melanie providing the artwork. When Rina expressed discomfort over this Melanie told her to get over it and consider Iz's feelings. The comic is still live on ForbiddenFlora.
- Bex / Hexcryingwolf: Ex-member who got on Melanie's bad side and was put in timeout. After speaking to their therapist about Floraverse (who was horrified) Bex tried to speak with another member about it, with the member instead focusing on how Bex's talk with their therapist didn't take Melanie's feelings into account.
- Goopy / GoopisBoopis: Pedo troon coomer who was caught hitting up kids multiple times. Got a slap on the wrist and was allowed to stay in the server full of kids. Only banned when Melanie got sick of him being a lazy piece of shit who wouldn't get a job and publicly shamed him only after kf found out about it. Goopy's Floraverse character is featured in a game that Melanie and Eevee made together.

I like how Eevee won't stop bringing up minors looking at porn even after all these years.
I read purplekecleon and my brain wasn't registering that this is THE PK I remember from peak DA pokemon days, I was active in that circle
I'm trying to remember that one site that you could draw a post and people could reply back with more drawings (no text), and I'm struggling to remember if one of those communities was headed by PK or not
I THINK it was Pokemon Mystery Dungeon? Gijinkas for sure
had no idea PK was a cow, she was definitely one of the big names in the community
love it when I discover people I knew turn out to be cows, what a shitshow
I was in a few oekakis with her, but this one was an actual site dedicated to drawing and posting a quick drawing, and then others could reply to the post with more drawings
you could start a community on the site and people could join and post the drawings to the community page, it was around like 08-ish
think if livejournal and oekaki had a baby kek
Also just remembered that in the marl logs he mentioned filming a girl with a great dane. Then glip mentioned how the dog marl forced her to fuck was a great dane. HMMM
HOLY SHIT YES, I fully expected that knowledge to be gone forever, bless u anon
I don't know if she was in charge of that particular tegaki group but I remember there being a pokemon gijinka rp group, but no drama>>1824834>It's still crazy to me seeing people who knew her back then not being aware of her current antics
yeah I remember her switching to glitchedpuppet on tumblr and stopped caring after that tbh, I had no idea she was still around, I flinched remembering that 06 is almost 20 years ago kek
honestly that makes it the saddest part, she's gotta be almost 40 by now and still acting a cow?
we NEVER heard any of these antics during her PK days, or at least I didn't, but as OP says she was a big deal in the DA Pokemon scene so I guess I shouldn't be surprised
thinking about it, there was a time on DA where groups TRIED the drawing-rp thing? I actually do remember there being auditions for a pokemon mystery dungeon group headed by PK, there was some drama because it had minimum standards for applying which I didn't think was odd, but after I got in I got bored, DA wasn't a good platform for that kind of thing imo
>Marl or Eevee being weird?
wish I had a story but I would need to see what they've drawn in the past tbh, I can't recall any specific drama in the PMD group, I mostly got bored and peaced out
sorry I'm useless nonnies, I'm mostly amazed PK is still around kek
>Glad you didn't get roped into it nonna!
me too! my circle was very easygoing in comparison
Actually thinking back, there was probably more than one gijinka group, I just remember that lovely Pokémon was the most popular of them at one point.
Here's an archive of the whole site fwiw. http://archive.tewi.us/tegaki/showgroups.php
Marl never really drew art, he did a lot of the writing for PMDE alongside Melanie. He had a gray/blue Ninetales character named Callahan iirc? Probably a few others I'm not remembering. Him and PK rigged one of their own contests by secretly making a new account, entering the contest, and giving themselves the win. Never outright stated it was them but the art style was literally PK's normal style in grayscale. Out of all three of them Marl had the least internet presence, barely posting stuff publicly but was active in chatrooms sexting kids.
Eevee I don't really know much of what he did in the group. He didn't draw back then, PK drew the art for both their characters. Eevee's character was a Eevee named Lexy (Big shocker) but does a lot of coding, he ran the Veekun website too. All three of them hung out in irc chatrooms most of the time.
holy shit, yeah it was LP and Pokemanz
I wasn't expecting someone to actually know what I was talking about, even if PK wasn't involved in the end>>1825551
then I got nothing, sadly>Marl was active in chatrooms sexting kids

Best part of all this is that her fucking ANOTHER dog wasn't leaked by anyone other than herself. She fucked up ALL by herself this time. "Well it was shared in private emails" Yeah with someone in contact with a site that's already posting shit against her? What the fuck did you think was going to happen?
I used to feel bad for her back during all the Marl shit. Sometimes I wondered if the level of shit she gets is deserved. But two? Oh my god bitch, TWO? You don't get to lie about it for YEARS being one time and how much you hated it and then go back for more.
This is what happens when you don't get your story straight. Maybe she should've paid attention to what public knowledge her detractors already had on her. Maybe the unfortunately only metaphorical pooch wouldn't have been as screwed right about now.

Eevee is trying to muddy the waters by claiming people are accusing her of ddosing the farms instead of the independent callout site.
Seems like someone doesn’t want to publicize the fact that other people away from the farms are sick of their shit

I'm reading the Discord logs and god, how, why, these people deserve bad, really bad things. Disgusting beings, they don't even deserve to be called human. I hope they fail at everything in life, I hope they die a painful death. Fucking miserable perverts. They have nothing, they are a bunch of psychos. It's the first time I have such a strong emotional reaction to a cow/group of cows and that is saying something.

jesus christ, the floraverse writer was 37? and made the 19yo live like this while still charging rent?
Opa also was/is fucking Melanie, confirmed by an ex-fan. The group convinced him his wife was abusive
so he left her and lost custody of his infant daughter.

lmao almost, opa TRIED to cuck his wife with glip but got rejected, ranking him lower than the two dogs glip fucked, pic related is Pengosolvent, glip's current favorite fucktoy/right hand until she gets bored.
opa did try to drag his (now ex)wife to one of the furry roleplay "scenes" and it didn't go well lol

Lmao holy shit I did not know that. Fucking hilarious. Didn't stop her from drawing her and Opa's self insert fucking though.>>1836963
The Pengo debacle is so weird. I think they got in contact not long after the marl logs came out and apparently spent a long time talking back and forth before forgiving each other. Pengo went onto the kf thread for a short while and asked/answered questions. She even had concerns over how Melanie was running the server and didn't have interest in joining it. However now she's a mod and the way she treats people in the server is downright cruel. She seems like a very impressionable person and I wouldn't be shocked if she turned out this way because of Melanie's influence. From the same email chain where she admitted to it being more than one time with a dog, her victim
hit her with this:>You are a black hole of a person who has nothing but malice at its center, and you pull everyone around you into misery. They become the worst version of themselves possible because of you.
I’m sorry if this is a dumb question but I’m Re-reading those logs and I’m confused about how that proves there was a more-than-once situation of Mel fucking dogs? I thought those logs talked about how both marl and Mel owned Apollo, and about marl asking exty to watch videos of him and their dog; but where does it say Mel was actually fucking Apollo? (Disclaimer, I don’t doubt Mel is a zoo, nobody’s getting groomed into fucking a Great Dane unless they actually want it. I just want to be able to enjoy the milk like everybody else!)
Nayrt- irt: Apollo, the people at kf say that the boots he was shown wearing are only used indoors for zoo purposes. Iirc there are also a few pics of mel VERY scantilly clothed next to him.
According to exty (who I think said he(?) Didn't know abt the abuse) apollo was suddenly gone overnight which is suspicious too, imo

Holy shit remember when she used to draw like this? This is from 2011. Her new art looks like a beginner's while her old art looks like something from a professional that'd get picked up by TPCI to do official illustrations.
iirc she tried to get her pmd comic officially serialized by Nintendo by barging into their offices unannounced and without prior appointment
Suffice to say they laughed her out the fucking door, not even mentioning her kecleon oc canonly rapes a kid sneasel in the comic(sage your shit)
