I hate to be a bother, but could you please post a link to the post were someone talked about someone who named their baby after another muse they know?
Check through the “answers” or “stealing” tag. I know it’s there somewhere.
I find that the self-promo idea is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand it’s fantastic for getting yourself out there and meeting new writers, however on the other, it is rather disheartening when your friends are reblogging everyone else’s promos but never yours. Sure, no one is obliged to reblog them, but you then can’t help starting to worry that they might not like your character as much as they say they do.
Advice: My rp partners never seem to respond to what I say, including introductions. I don't have many partners, and I love to rp because it helps me to calm down, but I can't seem to find people who will consistently rp with me. What should I do?
Check out the “getting started roleplaying” tag for it’s advice posts. It has suggestions that I think can be applied to your situation nicely.
I don’t really like when my rp partner assumes my character is phenomenal in bed. I think that’s something that should be discussed ooc first. I know people like rping to be a perfect world fantasy, but sometimes the more realistic thing is that maybe my character is just okay at sex. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Advice: What is a good way to move on from people who have treated you badly? I've been having a lot of anxiety lately over how a former partner made me feel worthless and beneath them and I keep letting it bring me down. Do you just have to keep focus on all the good and positives and force all the bad experiences away?
To be honest, this isn’t really a roleplay related question. I understand that the issue may have stemmed from a roleplaying encounter, but I understand equally that everyone deals with emotional abuse differently. There are a lot of varying methods to move on from bad situations, and seeing as I am not a professional grief councilor I do not feel comfortable suggesting any one method, as I know nothing about you as an individual.
My advice to you is to look up some “self treatment” methods and see if any of them work for you. There are little things — for example, before you go to bed every night and right when you wake up, think of one good thing that happened that day, one thing you’re looking forward to, or one thing you like about yourself — or larger plans that in some cases require professional approval and supervision. Some people find changing their diet and health patterns helpful. For others, taking on a new hobby does the trick. Everyone deals with grief differently. But I can tell you that you’re on the right track by having the mindset of someone who is willing to move on and who accepts the fact that it won’t all come in one foul swoop.
Why does the clerk blog have 100 followers?
Literally nothing gets posted there.
My fandom is small (the rp side at least) and I can’t be picky with my rp partners. I rp with obvious self-inserts, Mary Sues, Gary Stus and just all round badly portrayed characters. I want to tell them that their characters need serious work, but I don’t know how they’ll take it and the Muns are really sweet too. It may break their hearts.
Advice: I recently converted into an MLP FiM blog, and I'm losing followers left and right. Help! What do I do?
You can’t stop people from unfollowing you. That’s their choice just as much as it’s your choice what you want to post on your blog.
Followers aren’t the end all, be all to roleplaying, anyway. If those people don’t want to interact with you — regardless of what fandom you’re in or have switched over to — then what’s even the point in having them follow in the first place? It just becomes a hollow number count.
I found them on your affiliations page but do any of your followers know any currently active advice blogs?
A lot of the affiliates are active. Advice blogs are sometimes just a little hard to run since each reply takes a lot of time and effort to put thoughtfulness into. And don’t forget that some of the other types of blogs — such as the confessionals and rant blogs and general RPHs — do offer advice as well.
I don’t really like advertising blogs rpcs isn’t affiliated with, just because I have no experience with their styles, but I can suggest you check out the general tumblr tags in things like “rph”, “roleplay help”, “rp help” and so on. Most help blogs for writers and roleplayers do offer up help sections. Some are even willing to provide such privately.
I am a relatively-popular canon-character RPer in my fandom, and I hate feeling like I have to RP with everyone who ask.
