I have quite recently found this blog and I would like to thank the admins for making it and keeping it going because this is a great way for people to relieve themselves of the stress that they are put under at times during role playing. This is my horror story, and I apologize if not all of the tags are right. I was unsure as how to tag this.
*sighs*Really. I have it in the rules of my rp characters that I don’t follow back on personal blogs. Yet so many seem to get upset when I don’t follow them back and will message me about it before unfollowing me.
So I myself used to be a roleplaying nightmare once. It started when I was about ten, and I used an animation website called Flipnote Hatena which was intended for children who were 9-15. I made a few good friends despite being a terrible artist, and from them I learned how to roleplay. But in the beginning of my experience, all I did was force one of my characters to faint and disappear by some stupid strange magic.
There is a character in the show I watch who is potrayed as a gentle, but powerful character. He is often very cheerful, and pain is usually the last thing on his mind. However, many prople tend to make him a blubbering emotional mess for the sake of romance. Then, there are the people who make him crazy for the love of it.
When their muse is ‘so overwhelmed by the return of their senses,’ it doesn’t matter that they haven’t had food or water in a week.
We’re glad this one never got past the RPer’s initial pitch.
Coming up with plots ‘on your own’ should mean that you don’t need an admin (or a plot device) to help you.
It also implies you can do it with the character you play, not the one that was refused several times for being overpowered. Giving a character more abilities does not immediately make them more interesting to interact with.
I lurked a mecha roleplay where you only got your major upgrades through admin permission and in situations where it would be logical to acquire them. One guy decided, after seeing someone else get their upgrade early, that he “wasn’t good enough” in fights and begged the admins to let him have his upgrade every time one was online. Bear in mind this same upgrade in the canon story of the show his mech is from was responsible for ending a war in a similar manner to the nuke dropped on Japan.
He ended up getting banned after the 5th day in a row of non-stop begging and trying to sneak his upgrade in while the admins were sleeping.
Especially if you really liked whatever series that character was from, originally.
