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 love rpg with my partner. But it’s the little things that bother me. That bit was narration about my character’s thought process. You don’t need to meta-telepathy or respond to my narration with an ‘Of course he was/wasn’t like this’ or something.
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.
I’m not even kidding. I’m waiting for a reply to a fanmail rp but instead I get someone saying my muse just wakes tied to a chair. I didn’t reblog any kidnapping meme and they didn’t tell me about this before.
I mean. Not even the smut rp blogs me and my friends run do this. It is even creepier when I noticed they were trying to get their 18+ muse into the pants of a character from Dangan Ronpa. Which is a series about teenagers.
