11. What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to RPing?
When there is absolutely no give/take in an RP relationship. I am fine with coming up with most of the plots and whatever if the other person can’t think of something, but I HATE having people come up to me, say that they’re bored, and expect me to come up with a long and involved plot line entirely revolving around THEIR character when they CLEARLY have no interest in me or my muses, aren’t willing to listen to any headcanons but constantly want to tell me all about their own, and can’t come up with any ideas or at least help with preferences or some direction or whatever.
"IDK just entertain me" … .. … nothing will make me NOT want to RP with you as quickly as that. I am a busy person. I multi-task. I have a lot of friends. I am constantly running around. I love to RP, but I will not put up with being bullied into it and I am NOT being paid to be YOUR GAME MASTER.
This has happened on too many RPing places. My characters are NOT your toys.
Also, if you want to ship with me, be prepared to earn it. A person can avoid a lot of the time-consuming build-up if they pre-plot with me, but I expect the person to really have some good ideas, have given it careful thought, willing to do test things, etc.
And if I say “I am not comfortable with the thing,” I AM NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THE THING. The more you press, the MORE I will ignore/avoid you. Romance can be fun to write but if that is ALL you are after… please find another partner! There are plenty out there that will give you the kind of RP that you want.
12. What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to the fandom you RP in?
Over sexualization of the characters, though honestly that’s rampant in any fandom… it just seems incredibly out of character for most of them. I mean, this is a shounen series… come on, guys.
(And yes, I realize that I probably sound like a hypocrite given the habits and behaviors of my interpretation of Hakuba, but I feel it’s important to note that one of the reasons why Hakuba seems so DIFFERENT among the Gosho Boys is that he IS outwardly flirty and doesn’t seem to be AFRAID of that sort of thing… the contrast is certainly there, and I’m guessing it’s a matter of cultural difference.
But when you have an MC who can’t admit to a girl that he’s liked forever, knows that there’s mutual feelings, etc… and then make him the fandom bicycle.. it’s like… where did that come from? I thought he was shy and really reserved with his emotions and that sort of thing…????
I AM REALLY REALLY ANNOYING WHEN IT COMES TO MISREPRESENTATIONS OF CHARACTERS. Which is probably stupid because it shouldn’t matter and I’ve made 98% of what my Hakuba is up so?!?!!?!?!
UGGHHHHHH LET’S JUST SAY that there’s a time and place for sex stuff and I don’t want it to be so OVERT because I am typically a very private person KEEP IT AWAY FROM MY CUTE FANDOM LOL *DIES*)
