As a roleplayer I understand that there are some situations that might get uncomfortable for one or more sides of the game, but there are some points where you’ve just gotta stop and sort out your shit.
Okay so I had to get this rant out somewhere. If I get found out for posting this, I literally do not care, I cannot take it anymore. I cannot continue to put on a mask and hide my contempt.
So, I’m part of this RP group, and many of us have…sort of retired from the official Tumblr RP scene. But we still have our characters and still roleplay with them mainly over Skype, and it’s kind of a great time…except in one case, which has done nothing but grind my gears for a while now.
Let’s call the players in our story “Doyle” (the mun who is the source of my rant), and and “Gaiman” (very close mutual friends of ours).
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.
