So I figured I’d share my grossest rp story here. I rarely rp anymore outside small, private groups of friends and acquaintances with tons of OOC communication, and shit like this is why.
Character B mentioned to Character C that Character A’s actions were in some way imperfect and suddenly Character A never acted that way in the first place. The mun may be talking ooc about them doing something differently, or the muse ic to another character. Things might just change on their about page with no post explaining it.
Further note: deleting a self-para from ages ago, not telling anybody except perhaps closest ooc friends about the change, and then turning it around so that my character looks whiny, irrational, spreading falsehoods and altogether out-of-character does not make me want to plot with you in the future. Especially if this is about the 20th time this sort of thing has happened.
The fact that you and your character are not the same person does not absolve you of bad writing.
I am very tired of seeing this shit all the time … yes, your character will be doing things a certain way, but ultimately YOU are the one behind that keyboard, children. Whatever they do comes from your own brain; please stop using the excuse of a “muse” to cover up for your own bad behavior.
I’m honestly annoyed and angry that this thing happens because some people just blatantly ignored what all RPers have agreed on, then they went and caused problems that shouldn’t even have happened in the first place.
This is gonna’ be a long story because this issue is just the root.
Psychopaths are not emotionless. Having diminished empathy is different from having no emotions whatsoever.
This is a bit more a cry for help than a story. I figured if anyone should know the best way to proceed it would be other roleplayers.
I have a roleplaying partner who overall is a pretty good writer, and tries to continually produce equal amounts of plot and characters into the mix. I spend a lot of energy dodging around being asked to roleplay because they have instead become the partner I dread most. They’re one who asks to roleplay every day.
This isn’t as bad as some stories I’ve seen on here, but a recent meme reminded me of it, and I just want to share this to maybe help me get it off my chest.
I roleplay in a smaller fandom—enough so that not every character has representation and many members are close to each other. It’s from a game series in which the characters are different every game, and we don’t even have all the characters from one game. It isn’t uncommon that one person will have multiple blogs for different characters, sometimes across games, especially since we’re missing a LOT of characters, with varying activity. The person in question here roleplayed as S, from one game, while I was Y from another.
You know if you molest and rape women all day…you’re eventually going to get caught
…you know that, right?
I have quite recently found this blog and I would like to thank the admins for making it and keeping it going because this is a great way for people to relieve themselves of the stress that they are put under at times during role playing. This is my horror story, and I apologize if not all of the tags are right. I was unsure as how to tag this.
