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.
Now before you scream bloody murder, listen to my story.
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)!
I shall call myself Bear, and this is the first story you’ll see from me, but it probably won’t be the last story that you see from me.
I’ve had many, many terrible experiences over my years RPing. Usually this would be followed by a, “But none so bad as this.” But, unfortunately, it’s not. This is not nearly the worst thing that’s happened to me, it’s only the one that’s irking me most currently given my other ones have ended a while back. Hold onto your hats and settle in with a drink of your choice, however, because this one gets incredibly long and detailed.
I RP one character in a small fandom. Not ‘only five people’ tiny, but small enough that everyone follows everyone else, though we do have most of the main characters covered once or twice over.
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.
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.
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.
