I promised myself that I would never come and make a post on a blog like this. I never thought I would have the need to. I am usually a very happy roleplayer who doesn’t get jealous at anyone or anything. Mainly because everything seems to always work out for me. I guess I just never expected something like this to happen to me.
I feel heartbroken, thrown to the side like a used piece of paper, betrayed, angry, shocked, surprised, and so many other things I should not be feeling at all. Not for a couple of muses.
So a while back, after the RP groups I’d been in had more or less disbanded or fallen into inactivity, I started looking for something new to join. Because it was really just a way to kill some time, rather than looking for anything terribly serious, I joined this next generation Gossip Girl RP, because while I wasn’t a huge fan of the show me and a friend used to watch it and I liked the premise enough.
Alright, as I write this, I’m on the verge of tears. I’d never thought I’d send something to this blog.
I roleplay in a rather small community. There’s this one mun, whom I’ll call Scale, who’s pretty nice but gets a crap-ton of hate from one user, whom I’ll call Marble. Marble is unfortunately very popular in the fandom.
Can’t tell if people needed to get off for the night….or were truly bad Rpers.
I’m going to substitute names from another fandom for this. Here is our intrepid cast:
Jaune: My elder brother character
Blake: My younger sister character
Roman: My friend’s character
Lie Rin: One of Jaune’s best friends
Velvet: The mun with which I’ve had problems
If you’re an OC in a fandom, hand pick a few special abilities. There’s a reason none of the canon characters have all of them: it’s overpowered and annoying to read. Think whether this ability is reasonable - if you have to reason it in more than one sentence, or change canon for it, the answer is no.
E.g. No, you cannot have another family’s family gift, and you cannot change it so much for your muse to be able to do anything.
Just because my character is average at something does not mean she bungles the most basic aspects of it.
I just started indie rping and have spent a lot reading people’s indie OCs. I’ve really grown to hate it how much people of all genders spend 90% of their replies describing the outlook of their character. For some reason, the characters also always ‘hate themselves’ or ‘are super shy and insecure’ and I just-…
None of these are even AU’s! The character background always changes to mostly accommodate the other RP’er(s) (and their chars naturally) involved.
