(No spoilers except for the weapon she uses)
Knives are so overrated. Every popular Creepypasta has them. Clockwork is one of my favorite of the 'mascots' of Creepypasta, and I think she could have had a cool hatchet or something.
No, this isn't related to Ticci Toby or whatever his name is. Axes are just so cool, and better at killing people, in my humble opinion.
Technically it's an 'ax' but from a lifetime of saying 'axe' it just feels wrong.
I haven't read the story in years, so maybe there's some reason she doesn't have an axe, like being too weak or something.
