The short version is I think you're amazing, and I want to be you when I grow up. The longer version includes me asking you for RP advice, like how to do it, and how to make friends in the community. Thanks for existing!
Okay, you are so kind to take the time to say that. Honestly, I don’t feel it is warranted, but I appreciate it. Please be like yourself! Find joy, find purpose, find adventure.
Okay, so I will try not to write a book on RPing. I would check out TT’s posts about how to make gifs and make threads. Really, you just record videos on your phone, camera, or computer. Then, upload it either with tumblr or the suggested imglfip. Find characters that you are interested in exploring or enjoy. DO NOT worry about it being perfect or extremely accurate. You don’t need fancy lace wigs and time period clothing and contacts and sharp contours. Just try. You can do Alternate Universe, Genderbent, etc. also. I also plan things out, look at aesthetics, and search headcanons to give me an idea into their head. Then write or just wing your threads! Have fun!
As far as making friends, it just kind of happens. Interact with people, join hangouts. Like @kinghallows-thistimeitspersonal (Klary) started liking and reblogging my first Remi Lupin. Then we interacted. Then @youvegotenoughnerve (A) messaged me and asked to do something together and showered me with compliments. Before I knew it, I was in a skype super nervous and planning Detention with Dolores. Within the hour, after I said I was okay with it, I met @rainbow-tonks (Lore). They were all so kind and willing to step out and make new friends. This is such a loving community. It happens so quickly. Just have fun, and the rest will follow. If you need anything else, let me know.
Again, thanks. If you start, tag me and let me know. I will bring you into the family very quick.
