I love this partner to death, I really do, but they keep metagaming. It doesn’t always ruin threads but it makes me frustrated and then I lose my muse. Their character is always better at fighting, always knows what’s going on in mine’s head and/or special abilities before it’s even brought up physically or verbally. It’s happened so much that I’m not even sure they are doing it on purpose anymore.
I just don’t know what to do and am just frustrated with the whole thing.
This is basically an extension of the “downplayed tragic past, affects only when convenient” problem, but it’s cropped up enough to warrant this. You see…sometimes I just have to be baffled when your muse does this. They hardly, if at all, know my character.
It’s either A) Mentioned in an off-hand sort of way that makes me wonder how my character should react to this totally irrelevant piece of information inserted out of nowhere or B) pulled up to create an angsty thread, when again, there hasn’t been nearly enough time between the muses for it to come up.
It’s okay for your muse to have whatever kind of trauma in their past, but bringing it up out of the blue Sakamoto-style just turns me right off.
This happened on a chat based rp, where we had a chat room for regular rping, and one for 18+. On the 18+ one, people were talking about porn, and showing of some they drew. One person kept posting slash porn of this one ship, and one of the people (J) left the chat room. This one member (B) automatically assumes that she left because of the gay porn, and goes onto main thread and starts cussing her out. On the 18+ chat, she then goes on about how much she loves gay people and how horrible J was, even though she had never made any homophobic comments. For all B knew she just didn’t like that one pairing, or slash, or hell, maybe she wanted to close some tabs.
It was incredibly stupid, but no one called B out. I think it was because they didn’t want her to turn on them.
Sorry if there are any spelling/grammar mistakes. This is a big longer than I intended for it to be.
I’m in the X fandom, and I have been for several years now in addition to a couple years of roleplaying on Tumblr. The X fandom is pretty large and is open to plenty of variation, so there’s often multiples of the same character around and interacting with each other.
So anyone can be a jackass, right? The Fandom was toxic, Bear and I were getting aware of that. But now I fast forward to a month or so back from now.
So some random names here will be used. There’s an antagonist of this story, but the moral is “dear god what happened to this place”, or more like “hot mess records” Also, “trusting people is dumb”.
So about the time I join Tumblr for real, I join The Fandom. It’s a big fandom, branches into a lot of other fandoms and tends to crossover a lot. Hundreds, maybe thousands of RPers. Huge drama source of late too, but that’s for another time. After a few months…I was roleplaying.
Needless to say, I wasn’t the smartest—I was new, immature, and I liked romance and sex, I admit it. But even I could tell something was wrong here.
and why one person who plays a “child” is really bugging me.
After a very bad experience with a roleplay group, I had been hopping from group to group, even started a few indie rps that died quickly due to my personal life being too hectic. I found this amazing group based around a corrupted version of Peter Pan and fell in love with it quickly. I applied for one of the original lost boys, who we’ll call X. At first, everything was amazing, everyone was so nice and great and I loved it. It was a good way to get away from that terrible experience and the personal crap going around. But if everything stayed that way, I wouldn’t be telling you this story.
Goodness, where do I begin.
When I was younger I had a DeviantArt account, so that’s already a bad sign. I watched this one person, I’ll call them N, who to my knowledge is still on dA. They would post transformation stories, and I was really into those kinds of stories (not as a fetish, but rather just an interest; transformation fetish creeped me out then and creeps me out now but whatever) so I would comment and we would start the rping.
Not too long ago, I was looking for potentional rp partners on Omegle. I mostly like to rp with a particular character who we shall call N.
N is a reasonably liked character in the fandom, but not one of the favourites, and seeing as pretty much everyone wants to rp with the favourites, I had many disconnections when I’d just mentioned the character.
