If you are a fan of RP, and would really like to start… DON’T.
Here’s a comprehensive list of things you should fully expect to happen, getting into RP:
1) You will become an exhibitionist… and no… not on purpose.
The many, many times I’ve forgotten to lock my door and had family members walk in on me half-naked in my room.
That one time Kiki walked in on me in a goddam collar, took one look, and walked out without a word.
2) You will be physically maimed… by yourself… and possibly others… constantly.
That one time I knocked the wind out of myself and nearly broke a rib… from jumping off of my bed and landing on my stomach… (but hey, I got the shot!)
That one time Oddoo full-on-bitch-slapped me in the face… “by accident”.
The many, many times I’ve given myself bruises and a kinked neck, flinging myself around my room.
That one time I nearly asphyxiated myself by lighting multiple scented candles in my room… for mood lighting…
3) You will be judged.
I think this one is pretty self-explanatory.
4) You will run out of money.
This is not a cheap hobby. *weeps* Not. Cheap.
5) Your social life will evaporate.
“Hey, wanna go out tonight?”
“Uh… no, sorry. I have plans.”
“What plans? You literally never leave your room.”
“I have… plans… in my room……………….. with Voldemort….”
6) You will get pregnant and die.
I don’t think there’s much more to say except… if someone asks you to RP, if you feel peer pressured…. JUST SAY NO.
Feel free to add your own RP horror stories below… together we can save a life.
