This happened once in an iScribble RP (gross I know). It was a fantasy roleplay and my OC (will refer to her as White) was a dragon who could take on a humanoid form to interact with other characters more easily, and this other person was really creepily PMing me talking about how their character (will refer to him as Blue) would find mine attractive and was going to romance mine. That was their choice, but I made sure to warn them that White isn’t really human at all and does not find humanoids attractive. The other roleplayer just kept insisting that Blue wouldn’t care and that he’d ‘change her mind’ eventually.
I made it pretty clear Blue would get burned to ash before that happened, but I ended up leaving soon after the roleplay began anyway.
Oh, is your oc sad because they’re self conscious about their weight? WELL MINE JUST TRIPPED DOWN THE STAIRS, GOT HIT BY A CAR, THEIR PARENTS JUST DIED, THEIR SIBLINGS ARE DEAD, THEIR BEST FRIEND IS DEAD, AND THEY’RE DEPRESSED. YOU SHOULD PITY THEM AND NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN PROBLEMS. IF YOU DON’T, YOU HAVE NO HEART, HMPH.
MAYBE MY OC COULD GET WITH YOURS AND “TUTOR YOURS” ^__^ SINCE HE IS SUCH A PROFESSIONAL DANCER AFTERALL, EVEN THOUGH HE NEVER WAS BEFORE, HE JUST SUDDENLY IS!
Please don’t change your fucking ocs at the last second just to forcefully pair with an oc and think your oc can relate to them better juST FOR THE SHIP. Of course they have to be so talented at it though, and much better at this said talent.
I’ve been wandering through Gaia rps again lately (shut up) and while thankfully it’s not a trend, there is still an annoying number of threadmasters who reject applicants through non-response. Look, I’ve run my fair share of rps, I know that rejecting people is uncomfortable and nerve-wracking, but is it really so much to ask that you at least send a ‘Sorry, you’re not a good fit, but thanks for your interest’? It’s not fun to get rejected, sure, but it’s even worse to sit around for a week wondering if your message was even received or if Gaia burped and ate it.
I dunno, minor peeve but it still feels like a breach of basic courtesy.
I don’t really care about being Anonymous since I know that the people involved in this situation either do not care or are not on Tumblr RP and will never actually locate this. If they do, then good on you mate.
Gee, I wonder why…
They do this in every fandom, and still haven’t sensed a pattern.
Now before you scream bloody murder, listen to my story.
I kid you not, I was in a Hetalia chatroom when an OC who was the child of one of the characters in that show developed romantic feelings. To the point the OC would get pissy when that character interacted with someone else.
But then things took a weird turn when the OC claimed that the character who was her (the OC was a girl) father got her pregnant. And the person who roleplayed the canon character wasn’t even aware of that.
I’m not keeping myself anonymous, but the people involved will be 100% anonymous. To people that know me - this has nothing to do with the recent drama that’s been going on in a certain slice of a fandom I’m in (which is mostly my fault, I’ll admit I’ve been pretty shitty lately)!
Okay, I got a short and not so sweet story.
A bit of time ago, I joined an rp chatroom for monster people. I, having had made one a bit ago, decided to use my Non-Binary gorgon, Alex. I was welcomed into the room, and got to RP without any trouble.
Almost INSTANTLY after my intro, someone else’s muse godmodded and tackled xer to the ground, demanding to know ‘what he was.’ When xie said they were non-binary, I shit you not, she said: “So you’re a shemale?” I got frustrated multiple times because I made xer say that they were out of the gender binary, and they still said ‘shemale’ and ‘it.’
Then, she felt their crotch without permission. That made me snap, and I vanished for 10 minutes to cool down.
I lied and said I had to go, and I never went back.
