exasperated friendly reminder that if Seifer ever comes off as too abrasive or too closed off, if he or I make you uncomfortable or offend or upset you, please talk to me in private. Please tell me if you take issue with how I write my muse. Please give me a chance to fix an issue before it becomes a problem or escalates into something worse.
Some people can like a character and just want to write with them for a while but I’ve bonded with my muse. There’s a LOT of us out there like that. He’s a fictional character, he’s not a real thing but he is a character I love and I enjoy writing. I grew up with Seifer from the time I was twelve years old and playing VIII for the first time. I saw him, read his dialogue and said ‘that one. That one is my favorite.’
So because of this, I share traits with my muse where I can be too blunt with my wording. Some of us, we just do that. I can go a little too far over the edge and push people’s buttons. And these traits can grow prominent when accompanied by others who do the same. I’m abrasive at times. No, I’m not my muse, but I do have commonality with him. It’s why I think we get along so well, he and I.
I’m not perfect and neither are you or the next person. We all have our flaws and our strengths. If I’ve ever offended you OOC, or if I have done something untoward or my muse has made yours upset in a way that wasn’t intended – I need to know.
We can’t fix or correct these problem areas if we’re not told there’s a problem in the first place so, please. Please communicate this.
I’m begging you guys here. I can’t interpret silence.
