and irritating to muns

Blog update - a wild episode appeared!

//I’m hypomanic! I know, right? It’s been a while! (it feels like forever? And it’s so pure, no sign of full blown mania which thank fuck, I can’t be dealing with hallucinations). It’s gon’ be a nice, clean episode where no-one is going to bring me down cos I will eat them if they do.

Pros:

  • I will probs get lots of shit done. I will be amaze and on top of things. I’m going to try and avoid starting ALL THE NEW THINGS. Bcos… seasoned bipolar suffered… I know how that shit ends.
  • Chances of being suicidal are fairly low without something seriously setting me off so you won’t have to hear that whining until I crash and burn. 
  • I love everything and everyone and rainbows and unicorns! I have all the affection. I may make random declarations of love and friendship. Come snuggle me???

Cons:

  • I’m really irritable. Although I love you, I will tell you if you’re pissing me off :3 Please try to avoid badgering me, winding me up or starting drama. I will bite, and you won’t like it. I usually give a warning unless you’re clearly deliberately being a prat to get a rise out of me. H e e d the warning.
  • Please don’t tell me about that one time you got S O hyper, so much sugar and caffeine lol I feel you! i totally understand mania!!!111! bipolar, me too, right? omg DO U THINK I HAVE BIPOLAR? I THINK MY DOG/GRANDMA/AUNT IS BIPOLAR. or I AM TOTALLY PROFICIENT AT DEALING WITH THE MENTALLY ILLZ, I LIVE WITH ONE/MET ONE THIS ONE TIME! or  MY PARENTAL HAD/HAS BIPOLAR DISORDER AND IT RUINED MY LIFE because I will eat you for breakfast. Let’s talk about fucking Harry Potter and unicorns. Happy shit. 
  • Very distracted. I can’t stay focused on people very easily right now, so if I just disappear, I’m sorry. It’s n o t you. On the other hand, slightly clingy, especially if you are close to me! Miffed if you disappear suddenly (v.hypocritical but I’m good at keeping my mouth shut cos I’m aware it’s 1000% unreasonable)
  • Completely disorganised thoughts and stuff so you may think we’re talking about one thing but I’m already on something else- did you say cats? No, western-style hats
  • I might whine about not being allowed to drink alcoholz, or being made to eat or having to take my meds. Sorry not sorry, having bipolar disorder literally sucks you have no fucking idea.
  • Might cry randomly? Is it joy? Is it sadness? Am I angry? Who the fuck knows? Cos I sure as hell don’t.

Sounds crazy? Doesn’t appeal?

Don’t talk to me until I announce it’s o v e r :3 

Why nea get so much sympathy for actually loving his bro when he has shown no sign of it and has been a total cunt to him in nearly every picture past and present but adam gets treated like a horrible psychopath when he has canonically stated various times he loves nea to death and cried his eyes out on his worst enemy that wants his life just becuase of how badly he missed him?

Why does mana(especially past mana) get all the praise and fanart for him loving nea when we know that isn’t everything

I mean nea deserves fan support as much as the next guy but how come the instant a new antagonsits shows up that is no less if not more evil and heartless than the current one and happens to be perceived as more conventionally attractive the fandom collectively jumps to give him snuggle s for something he seems to not feel bad about?

I’m just curious someone let me know cause unless it’s just purely physical I have no idea

(( just as an ooc disclaimer since i know i don’t do a whole lot of ooc communication on this blog… i absolutely love llyr getting asks ok. even if he replies snappily or irritably i, the mun, adore him getting asks so much and i love all of you for sending them in

and i think deep down he appreciates people talking to him even if they annoy him bugging him about his big ol gay crush or making vore jokes ok ♥ he’s a lonely old man please talk to him… ))

How to care for your favorite RP Blogs, A guide for Non-RPers

Hello! So you have stumbled upon the roleplay community, welcome!   Now you if you are new to RP, or the Tumblr RP Community, you may be a bit confused by the habits of the RP Blogger.  I am taking a moment to write up a few tips so you may have better understanding as to how to properly interact with your favorite RP Blog.

What is RP?

  • RP, or roleplay, is where an individual pretends to be a character and interacts with other characters/roleplayers to create stories together.  This comes in many forms, but for the purpose of this post we are focusing on Tumblr RP.

What does Mun or Muse mean?

  • Mun refers to the actual live person aka the Tumblr blogger who runs the blog.  I promise you, they are indeed a real live person, not a figment of your imagination.  They are human (at least until alien life has been found) and have real lives complete with jobs, school, family life, friends, etc.  Please remember in your interactions with the Mun, to treat them like you would want any friend you have to be treated.  Or perhaps like that strange cousin of yours that means well, even if they are a bit odd.
  • Muse refers to the character that the Mun is portraying.   At no time does the Muse’s behavior reflect on the actual behavior of the Mun.  This is a fictional creation, which may do things that the Mun would never ever do in real life.  The key word here is fictional, as in not real.

What is Out of Character verses In Character?

  • All out of Character actions refers to the thoughts, feelings, and general reactions of the Mun.  This can also be referred to a number of ways.  Many roleplayers have pet terms to indicate when they are speaking as themselves, rather than as their character.
  • In Character refers to the actions, thoughts, feelings, and general gadding about that the character does.  Again, it is important that it sticks in your head; this is not what the blogger thinks, feels, or is doing.  This is the actions of the fictional character only.

What is a Fandom?

  • Well, if you are Tumblr, I really, really hope you already know this one.  But just in case, this refers to a group of individuals that share a common appreciation for a show, move, actor/actress, fictional works etc.

What is the difference between Canon Character and Original Character?

  • A Canon Character is one that appears in the show/book/movie.  Portrayals of said character center around their actions/stories in the published/broadcasted body of work.
  • Original Character is one that is created by the Mun.  They can be based out of a particular fandom, or none at all.  This means the Mun has gone to the effort of creating someone totally new.  As such, it’s generally a very bad idea to try and roleplay as that character without the permission from the person that created them.

What is AU or UA?

  • Universe Alteration refers to the framework the mun is writing in that deviates slightly from the established lore of a show/movie/book.  
  • Alternative Universe refers to taking familiar characters and putting them in an unfamiliar setting, and then playing the story out. 
  • Some use these terms interchangeably. Basically, it is not a portrayal that strictly keeps to the established Lore of the show/movie/book.

So why do you guys roleplay?

  • Well, a lot of us like to play the game, what if?  What if this happened to the character instead of that?  What if this person came back?  What if this person didn’t die off?  What if this crazy monster tried to take over the earth?  Roleplay gives them an outlet to create stories centered on these ideas.   It is essentially collaborative creative writing, typically between two different Muns.

Why are you guys talking to each other in all Caps, are you mad?

  • Typically if two roleplayers are typing in all caps, this is an actual sign of affection and/or comradely.  Just check the content of the words, or the tags on the bottom of the post.  Sometimes entire conversations are carried out in the tags between the two Muns.
  • Occasionally yes, they are irritated by something. Again, check the content of the words.  If they are upset, the best idea is to give them supportive hugs or offers of commiseration.  Further aggravation is not recommended.

I really like this story they are writing, why did they get mad when I reblogged it because I love it so much?

  • Well, there are a number of reasons why the Mun got mad or irritated.  The biggest one is many roleplayers use thread-trackers, or their activity log, to keep track of who’s turn it is to reply.  When you reblog the roleplay, you cause an error in the tracker, so they can’t tell who’s turn it is.  This may cause them to completely loose the thread, and thus kill the story.  Secondly, they often don’t intend to share the story with anyone but the other roleplayer, and their followers.  They do, however, love it when you favorite the thread.  This is an excellent way of telling them that you enjoy the story they are creating
  • Some roleplay blogs do not mind.  However it is a good idea to ask first, so you know if they are okay with it or not.   When in doubt, liking a thread is always appreciated.

The character would NEVER do that in the show/movie/book, why the heck are they writing them that way?

  • All Roleplays are AU, or UA, which means they might do something that would not happen in the show/movie/book.  This is the mun exploring different characterization or story-lines.  Under no circumstance is the mun implying that the character would behave that way in the show/movie/book.  

How do I show my favorite Roleplay Blog I enjoy their stories, even if I don’t RP myself, or I just don’t RP with them?

  • Roleplayers can occasionally be a slightly insecure and self-conscious bunch, and are easily frightened away.  So remember to be gentle with your favorite RP blog, and feed them a steady diet of hugs and praise.  You are welcome to leave nice notes in their askbox, on anon or off.  In fact this is greatly encouraged, letting them know how much you like their blog/threads.

I hope you have found this guide helpful.  If you are now interested in actually roleplaying, don’t hesitate for look for guides to RP.  I know I’ve run across quite a few.  People put a lot of time and effort into them, in order to introduce you into the styles of roleplay.  Many RP’ers will also welcome questions and be happy to help, or point you in the direction of someone that can. 

Mobile irritations

::Mun Summi here with an apology in advance. A lot of time I am on mobile Tumblr and my phone has the most idiotic autocorrect ever. It tends to change words that are spelled right into something worse or act as if the word doesn’t exist so, closing, I am very sorry if sometimes my words look like a drunk illiterate is typing. I will double check better.::

Hello and welcome to Nintendask!

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but here is a helpful tip guide into the wonderful world of Nintendask~

So what is Nintendask? Well, it’s a community of role playing and ask blogs here on Tumblr pertaining to characters from Nintendo games! Of course it’s not a purely homogenous community, and everyone has a different style of story telling and interacting with other blogs, but here’s a general guide for all of you fresh faced blogs out there.

GLOSSARY:

  • Muse is the generally preferred term for characters here on Tumblr, as they are the characters who inspire us to create! They can be original characters or preexisting characters from any given franchise, and their behavior is up to the Mun’s interpretation.
  • Muns are the people who run the blogs! The origin of the term is up for debate, but the general consensus is that it is either an abbreviation of the spanish word “mundo” or the English world “mundane”, which mean “world” or “of the world” respectively (since we the writers exist here in this world, and not the worlds of our characters :p ). However, some people prefer to be known as Mods (moderators) instead.
  • Munday (or Moday) is every Monday, and it is a day for muns to post selfies of themselves and answers questions about their lives rather than their character’s lives! Of course everyone is free to post their own personal answers and photos all week long, but Munday is the day the community as a whole gets together and does it.
  • Ask Blogs  are blogs that respond to asks and answer them in character (as far as their interpretation of the character goes).
  • Role Playing Blogs are blogs that actively interact with other characters via chats and reblogs. Of course most blogs are a mix of the ask and rp format. However, please respect the wishes of blogs that insist they are Ask or RP only.
  • Art Blogs are blogs that interact via drawn responses rather than written ones. Some people have pre-made reaction images that they use to respond to situations quickly. Others draw original comics and things of that ilk in response. Regardless the format, all are a valid form of response.
  • Tags (I shouldn’t need to explain this, but just in case here goes) tags are those little grey words at the bottom of Tumblr posts that follow a hashtag. They enable people to search content on your blog and to filter out things they do not want to see. If you want people to search your work effectively, the first 5 tags in your tag line are the ones that will appear in Tumblr searches. It is a good idea to create a tag for your character and to tag other blogs involved in said post. Additionally, it is critical to tag things that others may deem upsetting or inappropriate, the quintessential tag being NSFW
  • NSFW (or Not Safe for Work) is content that would be unacceptable for someone to browse at work or school. This includes, but is not limited to: Nudity, Adult Content, Graphic Violence, Substance Abuse, etc etc. Even if you are joking or being playful about it, it is best to tag anything which would be uncomfortable to explain to your parents as NSFW or NSFW-ish (i.e. implied violence/sexual content/etc)
