Just a thing because
I’m kinda tired of people treating roleplaying like it’s a job.
First and foremost, roleplaying is a two-sided coin. Both parties do roleplaying to enjoy it. It is not a chore to either person, nor should it be considered an obligation. It is for fun. If it was an obligation, I’d think someone would step up and demand payment, because fuck.
The point is, one side should not be pressured to roleplay with the other side when they’re not up to it. And frankly, just because someone doesn’t roleplay with you doesn’t mean they dislike your character.
I roleplay with two people in most cases. It’s not because I think less of any other roleplayer or dislike roleplaying with anyone else. It’s just because that’s my comfort zone. While I break out and roleplay with others from time to time, my comfort zone, as well as where my character has built his relationships from, is always going to be those two people.
If someone else were to pressure me to reply or send me hate about not replying, it would bother me greatly. I should not be expected to reply to anyone, be it one of those two people or someone else who made an open starter. There are TONS of roleplayers on the internet, and on Tumblr alone. You can find someone else.
You should NEVER harass anyone about roleplaying with you. And if you feel you’re being ignored, message them. If they’re ignoring you, move on. You’re never going to get anywhere dwelling. And while I understand that suddenly being ignored and feeling left out is hurtful (I’ve been there, okay? I get it), those people aren’t worth it if they’re not going to give you the time of day. So it’s best to just move on instead of making PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE TEXT POSTS ABOUT IT, JESUS FUCKING GOD.
Second, just because someone tends to roleplay with certain people does NOT put them in a clique. I’m seriously tired of having to explain that. Their characters have developed around the other characters, and that’s just how it goes. A clique is a term used in high school to separate people because nobody understands the concept of just getting along. Jesus fuck.
You know what I’m done with? Seeing people bitch about roleplaying like it’s a job. I just wish people could have fun and everyone just get a-fucking-long. I’m tired of seeing text posts about people not rping with others. If you’re that bored, search for other people. The internet is full of them.
As for me, I’m not going to roleplay with anyone I don’t feel comfortable roleplaying with. I’m going to roleplay with people to have fun, not to please others. And everyone else can get over it, because I’m not budging.

thoughts on being Arab/Muslim in the world, today
Honestly, I just want to keep seeing Arabs and/or Muslims working hard and pursuing their goals. I want us to be successful individual people. Not successful in terms of “wealthy/money” but in terms of morals, good manners, friendliness, and diplomatic/peaceful approaches in really negative situations.
I’m not trying to sound nationalistic, at all. That’s totally not what I’m aiming for.
I just want to restore the respect, our culture and faith, once had in the world. No, I’m not even trying to preach.
I’m just—-hopeful, I guess. I want the world to be our allies, not fear us.
I want us to integrate and flourish.
I really hope this isn’t taken the wrong way. My hopes are merely based on the struggle that I’ve seen Arabs/Muslims face in the eyes of a misinformed world.
InshAllah, that’s what I really want in my short life.
Can I talk to the people I don't RP with for a second?

Hey does anybody know any POSITIVE quotes by Elliott?
I know a couple but it’s too late in the evening to get on my computer to research. I’m also asking this so I can convince my journalism teacher (who is also the art teacher) to let me paint my mural in the art hall as the figure 8 Wall, and inside each stripe I plan on putting a quote or lyric by Elliott. I’m also going to paint Elliott on it. That’s the mark I’m leaving before I graduate that I feel represents me.
So anthemofthefates and I are going to be a supervillain team. I’m going to use a lot of Tesla coils because that was my first major science project as a kid and I’m kind of obsessed. And my villainy will largely stem from the fact that I refuse to experiment on animals, so I keep kidnapping people and using them and sometimes turning them into crazy mutants or something.
What should our names/costumes be like? How about our color scheme? This is important.
I've never seen a shooting star.
And out of all the things in life I want to see, besides the look in someone’s eyes that tells me they love me, that’s the thing I want to see the most.
Just that blink of starlight.
I always seem one second late. Just one, significant second. I remember going out with a friend one night, and in that moment between turning and clambering into the car, I missed it. I’ve gone stargazing, lying on a blanket with my eyes fixed on the night sky, but I never look in the right place at the right time. I’ll be looking down, while my friends are looking up, and when they exclaim and my eyes dart to where they’re looking… it’s gone.
I want to see a shooting star. Just once, so I can say I’ve seen it.
