Humble isn’t the same as self deprecating. And confident isn’t the same as cocky. I feel like roleplayers need to be reminded of that sometimes. I’m really tired of my dash being just full of people calling themselves terrible at roleplaying or refusing to take compliments primarily to make sure people don’t think they are full of themselves, or just because ‘everyone’ does it.
Part of the trouble with having an OC is that so few people are willing to read all of the information I provide. Beloved canon characters have entire novels and movies and TV series of information to back them up! Yet people complain an OC is underdeveloped when finding a balance for getting as much information about them out there before losing someone’s interest is near impossible to find. I feel like people are intimidated by my OC’s extensive backstory and headcanons tag, but what else do you expect? They’re developed!
It’s really disheartening and frankly offensive when someone replies to a starter and tag it “yeah this sucks i know.” How is your partner supposed to take that? More importantly, how do you expect someone to be enthusiastic and timely about replying back to you (if they do at all) when you’ve basically told them you knowingly put no effort or care into your response and do not care in any case? Why bother?
May everyone’s new year be sweet as apples and honey!
Auto-shipping is as annoying as Auto-correct and a lot less funny. If a ship’s going to happen, let it build up through RP. Even canon ships are better with RP leading up to hopping on board the Love Boat.
For some reason I really, really enjoy doing roleplays that involve the muses (especially ones that are in a relationship) using drugs, and not always with the ending being them resolving their habits. No one I’ve met ever wants to do them, other than once when it ended with them going to rehab. After that, my roleplaying partner didn’t want to do anymore rps like that, but without the “happy” ending. I don’t use them myself, but I think it’s interesting to roleplay.
I never do ooc memes. At least not the ones that have literally nothing to do with my character or roleplaying.
I won’t do genderbent M!As. People don’t seem to realize how much influence gender has on the development on an individual in society. To try and figure out how different my character’s life would be all for the sake of something that doesn’t even last? I’m just not interested.
I have never understood why people make OC clones of a Canon character that’s an opposite gender instead of just roleplaying the genderbent character.
I hate having to re-do a reply. "But you didn’t respond right," they cry to me. Well how was I supposed to respond other than how my muse would?
