Basically, this person approached me to plot, but contributed nothing (I did all the work, basically); their character was cheesy and cliched and their page actually contained a blurb that basically said, “my character has flaws, don’t worry [doesn’t mention the flaws], he can be defeated, just use your imagination!”; they constantly made typos that could have been caught if they gave me the courtesy of looking over their posts before posting; and the thing that broke the straw on the camel’s back was that they godmodded in a post.
I sent them a message saying I don’t roleplay when godmodding (I mean, it’s such a big no-no…). They basically kept making edits to the post to try and please me…which I appreciate, but I was losing interest from the start, and already told them I was no longer interested…
My choices are basically to be a giant douche and just ignore the post and move on, or to be a giant douche and send yet ANOTHER message that’s more strongly worded so they’ll maybe FINALLY get the not-so-subtle hint…
I know I have been guilty of this maybe like twice when I rp’d but I’ve come to realize kids in those certain ages 99.99999% of the time knows this esspecially how the media shows it. And puberty hits sometimes even early before that so parents will have to force themselves to expand more about the basic things their child should know when growing up. Making sure an oc doesn’t know about sex at sixteen to eighteen doesnt make them innocent. It depends on how they act toward such topics to make them as pure as they seem to be. I’ve seen this mostly in rps right before someone ‘show’ or ‘teach’ them what sex is when really they can explain it without physically ding it. Its what the mun wants to be honest and basically one of the only ways to get who they want in their muse’s pants. It’s a tiring thing I’ve been seeing and it gets old pretty fast.
If you want to start a drama plot with your partner, please ask first. It is not okay to dump angst or injuries on another person’s character out of the blue. No, I do not want my character suddenly injured. No, I do not want to be involved in this angsty cheating plot. It’s not okay to suddenly drop a huge bomb on your partner unless you ask before doing so. Communication is important and vital.
You know what’s super great? When you have two lovely partners you ship with- mind you, they are both very wonderful muns and are generally just very fantastic writers and have great characters- but every single thread that gets started barely manages to get past the third post. I understand that muses are difficult and threads get dropped all the time but it’s every single time. There’s some that could be really interesting and further our muses relationships but they drop them just as it starts to get going. And to add insult to injury, they start up another thread with me.
Endless cycle of heartbreak, to be honest.
So I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to an RP by a mun I really respect, from an open RP that we were both present in, prior to that - I’m gonna go ahead and call that mun D. As a result of this invitation, I met a few other RPers - including S, with whom I immediately hit it off.
You’re right. Instead of ignoring you so you can get on with your life and I can get on with mine it’s much better for me to pay attention to you and yell at you. I should have sent hate to you like a normal person instead.
Honestly If I can’t stand a person I think it’s better for me to blacklist them on tumblr savoir and ignore them instead of being a hate monger.
I’m an admin on a forum-based high school roleplay where it’s basically a Crapsack World involving students who are based off of lore creartures and possess powers. This lovely thing happened when another admin’s character almost got into a fight with a new RPer’s character. I think he was serious.
I felt the need to step in OOC and tell him that I was basically not going to allow such a thing’s existence because A) you never told anyone that your character had that “power” up until this point, B) the forum is heavily moderated, C) they’re all, as I said, in high school, and D) what the fuck kind of ability is that? It sounds like something you’d only use to rape people. Wondering if the other admin or him will post soon, and what’ll happen if they do.
I’M SO SORRY I’M JUST AN AWKWARD SHY GIRL *sheepish smile* couldn’t you tell? *sheepish laugh* Please forgive anything I do, I’m just so clumsy! *closes her eyes shyly* I mean I just…no one ever flirted with me before so you should flirt with me more so I can be all cute and shy *sheepish blush* and respond in a very modest way, NOOO I’M NOT A CUTIE PIE~ *even more sheepish* PLEASE STAHHPPPP~ <3 u //// u you’re so silly obvious character I want to be shipped with~ *sheepish smile once more*
If I had a nickle every-time a “Shy” character expresses how sheepish or shy they are, I would be already on a yacht on my way to Hawaii.
This story is fairly recent in comparison to some of my other horrible roleplaying story, but it’s one that made me really angry and upset.
