i promise this really is an rp blog

a lot of the time i find myself in a rp whit a shit load of potential, but dying for no reason. everyone has a lot of muse, everyone is saying how they “hate how this is dying like how can this be happening”, everyone obviously logged on, yet there are only a couple people who dare to actually attempt to keep it alive. i wish i can say this has only happened once but lately i find myself in this position a lot, and by all the complaining in the rpt tags i know i am not alone on this. so, i decided to make a little rp helpers guide or whatever cause some people obviously need this. 

so here is:

8 TIPS ON HOW TO ATTEMPT TO KEEP A RP ALIVE

  1. don’t complain about the rp dying

i always see this and it always gets on my nerves. i’m not talking about those who post a starter and in the tags say “where is everyone at?” cause even though there is some complaining  involved in that, they are still doing more to try to keep it alive, actually posting a starter. i’m talking those who are obviously on the dash cause you see them post an ooc saying “this is dying i’m so sad :( :( :( “. that is not being active, thats just complaining, and being annoying (well a least for me. and if you really were so sad you would actually do something about it, maybe reply to a starter, then make one of your own, or something. DON’T BE THE COMPLAINER, THEY ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM.

       2. don’t blame the admins

although it is an admins job to run a rp, rarely is it ever actually an admins fault that a rp dies. keep in mind that along with running it, they also have parts in the rp, and like all of us do, they have lives outside the internet. if the main isn’t active for a day or two, so what? that doesn’t mean that the rp is dead, it means that the admins may have something else in their lives going on, or maybe even, that are participating in the rp, and doing their part to keep it alive? 

      3. don’t only reblog muse shit

in the past year or so, muse blogs have really made a difference in the rpc. now, we have a place to find things that can relate to our character, or a plot that they currently have with another character, and reblog them, giving people more of an in-depth sense of our chracters, from more then just statistics or a bio. i would be lying is i didn’t admit my love for this, cause it truly has made a difference. but, i cannot tell you how many times i have seen a rp slowly dying and there is that one person or in some cases, multiple people, who you know are on the dash, cause they are reblogging stuff, but instead of reblogging starters and replies, they are reblogging musings, or pictures. has this ever happened to you? you post a starter, and you worked hard on it, thinking of starters that are original is pretty hard, but you finally do it. how ever long after you see that little one thing on the tumblr refresh thing, telling you that there is something new on the dash. excited, you go, click on that refresh button, and when your dash reloads, its a quote, a picture, a gif set, something along those lines. now knowing someone is on the dash, you wait for that response, but it never comes. instead, your starter gets buried. #stopburyingstarterswithmusingshit2016. i’m not saying stop reblogging muse shit, please, if i did, that would make me a hypocrite. but mayb,e while your on the dash, and you happen to see a reply, or you happen to see a starter, or you see how no ones made a new starter in a day or two, why not make make posting actual rp stuff your priority?

     4. do be active 

this one is kind of a given, but i fee. as though lately, some people need a reminder. in order to keep a rp alive, you must simply be active! i know, i know, its hard to if no one else is on the dash, but, if your not gonna be the one to break the dead rp ice with a starter, then who is? what i have found out over my time in the rpc  is that activity is almost like a chain reaction. most of us are on at the same time, or at least once a day, yet for some reason everyone seems scared to post a starter, or even a reply, no one wants to be first. its like at a buffet or something, no one wants to be first in line, yet everyone wants to eat. so what can you do? be the first in line! start the activity up again! when it seems as though no ones on the dash, who cares? just post a starter, and reply to your other replies, and i’m sure the rest of the rp will start to be active again.

    5. if you don’t have muse, either try to get some or just leave the rp

i know some of us get very attached to some of our characters, and feel as though we can play them forever, yet, there always those times where are use just isn’t as high as it was before. it happens to the best of us. but, that doesn’t really give you an excuse to just abandon the rp. in my eyes, there are two ways to go about solving this problem. 1) you take a day or two, make an ooc saying that you just need a day or two but you promise to come back soon, let the admins know, and take that day or two, and try to develop your muse again. whether is that just taking that time to be off the dash, in the real world, looking through muse blogs, making photoshop shit for them, plotting with more people, i don’t know! but if you want to stay in the rp, with muse, i recommend doing this.  2) if you have attempted this last step and it just didn’t work, or you really just want out of the rp, just leave then. simple! i’m sure all the admins would understand, plus, i’m sure there is someone out there who will be more then happy to fill your role in the rp with whatever muse they have. 

    6. don’t ignore starters

this may seem like common sense, but i have seen this happen way too many times, where someone pot a starter, and then the complainer comes on, or the muse reblog person, orrr those people who mean well, do replies, but just for some reason don’t reply to start starter, instead make one of their own. part of keeping an rp active is being inclusive! sure, that person may not be your favorite, or you just don’t get their chara, or your muses don’t get along well, so what? if you want to keep the rp alive, your going to have to include everyone, thats just how it goes.

    7. promote!

this one may seem like it should only be reserved  for the admins, but it is not! promoting the rp to your friends or the rpc, either by talking about it, posting a link on your aim updates, posting a link to it on your rph/rpc, reblogging a main promote post on your rpt/rph, the list is endless. this way, your friends can join, people you met on aim yet don’t talk to anymore for whatever reason can jojn, those who are too lazy to go through the tags and just look at the rpt or rph tag for some reason can join, anyone can really! 

    8. try to get online

i know we all have outside lives from the rpc, but joining a rp, you are making a commitment to stay active. if something happens and you need some time off, thats when you ask the admins for a hiatus, and i’m sure they will understand and let you have some time off. but, if you find yourself bored, the dash slow, why not get involved, be active!

i know i’m going to get a message or two once i post this saying “ugh this is so annoying, this is all common sense blah blah blah,” but, lately from my own experience and from what i have seen people complaining about on the tags, i feel as though people need this reminder. also if majority of the rpc follows these tips, i’m sure rps would last a solid amount of time, and people can stop complaining. also, if anyone has any more tips, feel free to reblog and add them, or message me them!

💮 How to start a RP blog 💮

Before I start please keep in mind that there are no specific rules on how your blog should be! I’m just explaining the common set ups and what not that most rpers use!

Also I’m going to organize this in steps because steps help my overwhelmed brain


1.)   The first step to starting a RP blog is deciding on your muse, or the character you’re going to write as. It can be any muse you want! You can even have multiple muses for one blog if you’d like (but that does make organizing a bit harder). You can write as a canon character, an oc, a canon character with your own headcanons, whatever! 
     Just ask yourself: is this a character I’m going to want to write for a while? Is this a character that I feel comfy portraying? Choosing a character without thinking this over may lead you to give up or delete quickly because you find that you don’t enjoy them! This is okay though! It’s good to experiment and find out who you write the best!

2.)   Once you have your muse chosen, maybe practice writing with them a bit? This is optional of course, but practice may help you decide if they’re right for you or not.

3.)   Look at you! You got your muse! That’s awesome! Now, time to make the blog! The URL is fun to work with but may also be difficult to figure out. Go with whatever your heart desires! Look at examples too! Here’s how I chose mine:
      Peregrine (as in peregrine falcon, the animal Avi represents and owns) was taken, so I changed my i to 3 i’s (a popular trend ha ha). Avian’s url is peregriiine because the word peregrine represents her in multiple ways (I’ll explain how later).

4.)   Got your URL? Radical. Time to give your blog a nice theme! You don’t HAVE to do this, but I highly recommend it. In all honesty, people are going to want to interact with you more if you have a well put together theme and blog.
Finding a theme may be difficult but there are blogs made just to help with that!

@theme-hunters for example

Or, go look at some rp blogs and see if you like any of their themes! Grab the code from the maker, plug it in, and viola! Now you just have to put all your images and text and colors that you want! With this in mind, try to think of a specific color scheme and aesthetic for your muse. It will help with the look I promise!

5.)
  Got your theme and images? Wowee you’re really close! Now it’s time to make your pages. There are 3 very important pages to have:

An open and easily accessible ask box, a bio/about page for your muse, and a rules page

- Ask box: This one is easy. Have it open so people can send in starters and memes! The big one is having it easily accessible in your theme. It doesn’t HAVE to be, because people can find it and sometimes it’s worth the aesthetic, but it’s just easier for your RP partners!

- About page:
Please have a link/tab about your muse (esp if it’s an OC!). People have to know who you’re writing! If it’s a canon character you’re writing as (ex RED demoman) then you don’t have to put too much there since most people already know the basics about him! But! You can add in your own headcanons if you’d like! I recommend looking at some other RP blog bios to find out how you want to structure your’s :0

- Rules: This one actually isn’t required for people to RP with you, but I recommend it for your own sake. Because different people go by different standards and most (good) RPers make sure to check them first. Some important things to add is how you feel about certain writing topics (ex: No smut because I am a minor/I don’t like it, gore and violence is okay, etc). Again, looking at other rule pages will give you ideas for how to structure it

-Other: There are other (optional) pages to include as well, such as a list of verses (like AU’s and what not), relationships (list of their relationship with other rp partners), etc! Anything you also want to have available!

6.)  Your pages are done, your theme is set, you’re almost ready to go! Now here’s the most difficult part: Starting to write. I recommend 3 things:
 ~ reblogging RP/ ASK memes (lists of certain things that other people can send you)
~making a promo post to get yourself out there
~and most importantly SEND STARTERS TO OTHER PEOPLE FIRST
     This may seem like the hardest task to fulfill but it’s the most efficient way to get started. You can’t just wait for people to find you. You gotta fling yourself at others! Once you do that, people will follow you and send things themselves! It’s very anxiety-inducing for some people (me!!!me!!) but it’s worth it I promise

7.)  YOU DID IT! You are now writing little stories with your muse and another’s muse! How cool is that? You can write about anything ever! You can write small little silly threads (or a series of replies to the same story) or even long extended ones that are deep and thick with development :0!!! Possibilities are endless!!! YOU DID IT YEAAAAAAAH!!!


Now for some extra tips just for fun!

~ Having specific tags for things is REALLY helpful in organizing your content!

~ You don’t just have to reblog memes and replies; you can reblog images or posts that relate to your (such as an aesthetic that follows them or some musings!) I have tags for each of these things
~ For those tags, I recommend looking at other people’s tags for ideas on what to tag and how to tag it. I’m a dork and made really fancy tags with quotes and all that but you don’t have too!
~ Also add fun things to your blog, like a music player for tunes to set the mood for your muse!
~ Also, some people like to use little icons or art pieces in there responses to show their muse’s expression. This is optional but really fun! You don’t have to be an artist, you can just use other people’s art (with permission but most people don’t do that because they state that their icons are not their own art.)
~ Make sure to be respectful and kind to your fellow rp partners!
~ Roleplaying is a hobby. People do it for fun. Do NOT feel obligated to do a reply super quickly if you have other things going on. 
~ Have fun omg

For those who are unsure even HOW to write rp responses, there is no set way! You just write how you wish as long as you write your muse and give your partner enough to work with!

(Any questions or example requests? Send me an ask)

Beach Day

Hi friends! Summer is in full swing, so Ronnie and I met up with my best friend, Demi to take our three little ones to the beach for the day. Gabe and Em are still so young, we didn’t stay for very long, and we went when the sun wasn’t so high just to make sure it was cool enough for the babies. Let me tell you, it was a blast. Connor, I think, had the most fun out of all of us. He’s never been to the beach before so he played in the sand, in the waves, and with all his toys until he literally passed out face first onto the blanket. He wore himself out with all the excitement. For me, I just enjoyed not being cooped up in the house all day long, and it was so good to see both Demi and Gabe again. He’s gotten so big since I’ve seen him last, and that was just a little under a month ago! We tried to get Dem’s husband to come along, so Ronnie had someone to hang out with, but he had to work. Either way I think he had a good time too. It was such a lovely day out. It was warm, but the breeze from the ocean cooled us all down, and we had ice lollies as a little treat and best of all, I got a lot of really great pictures for my scrapbook! Embrie enjoyed the beach too, I think haha. I say I think because she enjoyed listening to the waves, and really enjoyed the sun, but whenever she got a piece, a single grain, of sand on her she started to get fussy! I think she’ll enjoy it more when she’s older, I hope, because we’ll definitely have to do this again! 

Oh and before I go I just wanted to say I will be posting Em’s birth story soon(ish) I’m writing it up now. I also have her newborn pictures to post, and a life update to post. I’ve been really slacking with this blog, I know, I’m sorry, but I have a rambunctious three year old and a one month old to take care of. Not to mention I’ve been dabbling back into work from home, mostly while Em sleeps, so I have that to keep me busy. Promise, though, I’ll get more frequent updates out when I have the chance. Until next time, ciao!

LF RP CONNECTIONS & (maybe) AN FC

Hi! I’m pretty new on the Balmung scene, (read as I just name changed, level and story boosted, and fantasia’d an alt character I had on Balmung into a new character,) but I’d love to find some connections with the release of Stormblood and The Steppe!

This is Ochigin Iriq, but he’s really a Moks at heart. Not a boy given up by the Borlaaq tribe, but rather born into the Iriq tribe, he spent much of his youth upon the Steppe. His parents are also Moks, and I’d love some connections with regards to that. Some other Moks who he’s met and exchanged messages with, maybe?

Other connections I’m looking for for Ochigin include things like friends from the Steppe and Eorzea, people he’s done ‘odd jobs’ for over the years, (think things like general repairs and generic adventurer’s work. His IC ‘class’ is an axe-wielding one, though he doesn’t have the Warrior features like the Inner Beast or anything like that,) would be nice, and just friends in general would be kickass! Enemies and darker stuff are also welcomed, as is shippy stuff, though I prefer to chat for a while before promising a romance.

I’d also like blogs to follow even if you’re not interested in RP with Ochigin! Please just drop a like on this post and I will follow you :)

More under the read more because this got really long!

anonymous asked:

Is this a rp blog or a shitpost blog. I would love to rp with creampuff

Not really rp blog, but if folks draw a character interacting with him I do my best to make some kind of response, although I cant promise it for each, I’ve been getting slammed with them. 

okay so guys, I’m working again in the parent trap!au (the single dad / teacher au) since many of you want me to continue. I’m already working on something, a small thing and then I hope to update it like a comic but not quite a comic, my schedule is really shitty so probably it would be one draw per week if work doesn’t decide to be a bitch BUT let’s hope I can fulfill this promise ;w; finger crossed!

Let Me Be Your Call Boy (1/14)

Let Me Be Your Call Boy (1/14) | After coming out as gay to his friends on his birthday, the last thing Dan is expecting is to be gifted a call boy as a present, let alone one that’s been paid for for the entire night.

Hey guys! @embarrassing-myself and and I are back with another RP, completely finished as always, and somehow outstripping Brick by Brick by like 5K words. Our posting schedule will continue to be once a week on Mondays, but as you can see, we’ll now be posting to our new headcanon and RP blog as well as ao3.

So go ahead and like or reblog (reblogs preferred for visibility) if you’d be interested in interacting with Kuroshitsuji’s Charles Phipps!

Note

Ok!! So a little clarification about being completely dead on this blog :

I have little to none access to Internet the past few days, I come on and off Tumblr because my data can’t really handle this site without dying or costing me a complete fortune.
I apologize to all my RP partners, feel free to drop whatever we had and we can start a new thread again when I find the time/energy to be back on this blog. But being honest, without pile0balloons around I just feel lost around Wilson, and I’ve lost interest/ can’t really find him as muse lately, being this like.. the past months..

I want to come back, not now but I will and that’s a promise, Wilson can’t be gone forever, hopefully.

A big big thanks to everyone who considered my boy to be worth interacting with, I’m really sorry about the lack of content and all.

ON ANOTHER NEWS!!
THE TABLET FINALLY ARRIVED!!!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR STICK AROUND ANYWAY, AND FOR EVERYTHING I’VE GET TO DO ON THIS BLOG!!

LOVE YOU ALL!! I

im really not in a good headspace to rp. im sorry for not being around much but i can’t bring myself to try anymore. it doesn’t feel like it’s worth it anymore. i love this blog and Bing and all of you but i can’t get back into the headspace for this.

im sorry…

i promise that this isn’t a goodbye, you can’t get rid of me that quickly. i’ll be back with Bingaroo soon enough

Dude you should totally do more Remus it looks great!!

(OCC: Omg thanks so glad you liked i mean REALLY  I’ll be online tomorrow as remus and that’s a promise i just I’ll not be doing ask today cause it’s over 12am for me so sorry but be feel free to send me asks as remus I’ll love that so much and thanks again) 

I’m not going to celebrate every follower milestone I swear aside from the fact I didn’t mention 200 anyway but considering I was there live for this one, I thought it bared mentioning ;P   Thank you all for coming in and sharing these ducks with me. Because of this blog I’ve made some really great friends, read stories new to me, and have just had a really great time so far sharing a love of some cartoon ducks.

Bonus promised promo/shout-out to @louietheeviltriplet, who I was on Discord with when they unknowingly hit my 300th marker.  Shadow is a really cool person, a great RP blog, and has made me laugh more times than I can count. Give them a check if you can ♥

So I little update. Icons still goin’ slow. Trying to learn how to go back and forth between two different programs (one for sprites and the other for clip studio)  has been tiring. I do plan to be rping here and the other blog again by August still. Just been slow with life and trying to get my focus back into seriously doing art. Also trying to make a decent commissions page. In other words, drawing for rp is the last thing on my mind as I REALLY want to learn to do more with art and start working on games/comics instead. (debating web/toons when I get confident enough) Plus I’ve been working for my dad’s new business as a full time graphics designer and that’s been pretty draining as well. I promise, I’ll be here soon again, thanks for being patient ❤

anonymous asked:

Do you have any guides for someone starting their first multi-muse/indie account? I'm v nervous (in a good way)

i’m so sorry for the wait !! i checked the tags & was able to find a vv nice guide by @dear-indies for you right HERE !! lots of luck starting up your first blog (it’ll be a lovely experience, i promise!!) and if you have any specific questions, feel free to message me again !!

Mutuals

Finally, in my rules it says that I only RP with mutuals, people who follow me and I follow back. I say this because my untreated ADD makes it very easy for me to get overwhelmed if I accept RP’s from Everyone. I’ve been there before, and it really hurt my muse.

If you are a sideblog, lemme know if you follow me elsewhere first, I can be p shitty at remembering to read abouts and rules where you might mention you’re a side blog.

It all boils down to my ADD making my life a Tough Titty, which makes me look like I don’t care about things. But I promise, I do.
