Ok, stop your whining. What’s done is done. To some it’s a tragedy, to others it’s a day of rejoice. No need to be bitching at one another on this wiki about it. Celebrate or mourn as you will and move on.
If you guys choose to fork or find your own independent domain, you'll have a lot more control over your stuff - it's definitely the best option. Unfortunately Fandom/Wikia has a tendency to go about terrorising Wikis they don't like, so attempting to set up a replacement here probably wouldn't last very long.
Well, it's not that I'm afraid of talking about my grievances with Fandom on Fandom domains, it's that I just think it would be nice if there was one consolidated unofficial place for people to go and talk about Fandom, including but not limited to the problems we have with Fandom staff.
I don't know why, but I think the thing I miss most about it is the comment sections of Creepypastas that were so bad that they got sent there. Sometimes they were funnier than the Trollpastas themselves.
FANDOM staff is closing a lot of wikias in this period, not only Trollpasta Wikia. In fact, they closed quite a few wikias I edited and the reason given was as strong as the one provided for Trollpasta Wikia.

I heard about that. What the heck is their problem?!
I hope those morons keep their hands off of this site!
Really? I did not realized we were so famous. Our story is similar to yours, in that our main wikia was fairly old, created in 2013 but it differentiates itself in the fact that both VSTF and FANDOM staff were often on the wikia and aided us against cross-wikia vandalising trolls plenty of times but they never warned us of any danger to be closed, not even a single time.
They deleted a page at the start of the year and globally blocked some of us, including admins, but never mentioned they could close the site. Not to mention the wikia had been on the wikias to be checked by FANDOM staff two times before, the latter of them mere days before being closed, and always deemed non rule breaking.
I should have seen it coming, really, as our wikia and Trollpasta Wikia shared quite a few users, that must have suggested FANDOM that its nature was the same as Trollpasta Wikia, prompting them to close it.
Anyway, they said our wikia was closed because its content was negative and offensive to other fandoms. I guess they meant we offended the many fans of "Custer's Revenge" or "Ride to Hell: Retribution" or something.
In conclusion, I suggest the admins of this wikia to create backups of the images just in case, since they cannot be retrieved after a wikia is closed and it seems FANDOM is closing wikias ad libitum instead of using actual reasons.
I am not being paranoid, just in case. They could come up with some balderdash involving violence or NSFW content even if there are proper warnings. It is impossible to know.
