rp or something

{{ hey… ive been thinkin abt this lately because i feel REALLY AWFUL ABOUT GETTING STUCK IN EVERY THREAD I TOUCH but like. if we’re writing, and i drop off the map, i think the biggest issue is that…
i dont know what im writing for.

its not such a big deal with people i talk to more frequently; we just end up talking about what happened in a more lax manner and everythings pretty chill from there…

but im getting the hint that, like… plotting helps.
and maybe not even plotting! communication in general. if you want something specific out of an rp, its 100% okay to tell me! and maybe i’ll get braver and more thoughtful about what i want out of a thread, too. }}

Entry Two

The week has been worrying and exhausting since my first entry. There have been constant issues resulting in an excess closure of the shopfront as I am forced to intervene as mediator time and time again.

Quo technically passed away tonight. Elliistra is tending to the Soul side of the business while a druid I have never met before has taken her body for careful restoration.  I am left to the task of slaying a demon, draining its’ blood, and then sneaking it through Darnassus.

Zaderick tells me he knows someone who dabbles in this profession already and has initiated contact, I only have three days. They had better be urgent.

I will admit I am excited to take part in a ritual such as this, but I cannot stop and wonder if I should feel some sort of grief or anguish of it being a previous romantic partner. Inconvenienced, and angered are the first emotions that come to mind at this moment.

Tomorrow I will spend time with my husband, who is in desperate need of some rest. He asked me not to hurt him tonight. As if I were going to beat him like a spoiled child.

I need to figure out a way to strengthen our trust with one another if we are going to be a successful family. He and I must lead decisively hand-in-hand, and establish respect for our reputations.

I have bold goals, but first I must have a foundation to build them upon.

A hastily scribbled sentence on the bottom of the page reads:
Note to self: Slap Leshii’s next gunshot wound.

@thisshouldbegayer, I hope you don’t expect Lance will be able to keep his hands off Keith from now on, hahaha

what does your amortentia smell like: teddy

Professor: Now, Teddy, it is your turn, pick up the potion and give it a big sniff, there you go!

Teddy: *instantly realizes what it smells of and panics*

Extra-Punk-Rock Teddy: *clears his throat* It’s uhm like

Extra-Punk-Rock Teddy: …and leather and beer and rock concerts-

excuse me, excuse me attention please. i am desperately searching for some laid back ass plots and partners. i’m talking texts and chats and messaging back and forth bc yes we love our chars and our plot but we are just too damn busy or we can’t get in the right mindset to write something perfect rn. partners i can hc with in the middle of the night bc we have sO MANY IDEAS that may become a reality but there’s no rush for it. you know what i mean? like yes let’s start a para one day but while i put off writing (bc i’m lazy af or at work or you’re busy or dealing with life) let’s have them texting or a little gif chat or phone call. let’s start a dozen different plots and pairings (bc we always take on too many) and there’s no rush. let’s be scattered and start multiple paras at a time and some are long and some aren’t and it’s just no big deal. just something fun and relaxed where there’s no need to feel bad ab not having a ton of muse or time. am i making sense. come to me pls.

ok but rich girl’s parents are out of town and instead of throwing a party she orders a pizza and gets ready to spend the night alone stuffing her face… while she’s waiting for her food to arrive, weird news reports start popping up about people eating people/crazy attacks in her city. the pizza guy shows up and rings her doorbell furiously begging for her to let him in because a walker is after him. they end up staying together partly because he’s terrified to go back out there and partly because she doesn’t want to be alone. they end up sticking together and bonding in the big mansion as the world falls apart around them, but then they’re forced to go out on the road and protect themselves/one another because they’ve started to really care about one another and !!!!!

what does your amortentia smell like: tom

Professor Slughorn: Excellent, my dear boy, excellent! Your Amortentia potion is perfectly brewed, I wasn’t expecting anything less of you. Now, Tom, go on and smell it - Amortentia smells different to each person, according to what attracts them, what they love.

Tom Riddle: *takes a whiff of the potion, his expression remains cold*

Tom Riddle: I must be having a cold. I cannot smell…

Professor Slughorn: *is taken aback for a moment, then smiles tentatively and nods* Of course, my dear boy, of course. Do take care of yourself, you wouldn’t want to miss on any classes because of a cold, would you?

Tom Riddle: Of course not, Professor.

Honestly the worst feeling as an RPer is getting confirmation that you were more enthused for development and interactions than someone else involved with your character is, and they’re actually doubtful about their character and not enjoying things at all.

Please, always be up front about things if you’re not enjoying them. People won’t mind not doing them and work out a way to fix things accordingly, but if you feel like you need to keep playing something just to make someone else happy while not enjoying yourself, then it’s not going to be fun for anyone.

TALK IT OUT, instead of pulling a move ICly that will not only seem OOC but also be jarring in development.

And most importantly, look for the good things and fun for yourself first, and dont force yourself to include things you don’t want to. But also, don’t make excuses to a person. Please talk things out, work the problems out and find alternatives. Don’t leave people in the dark.

I’ve been kind of tossing this around for awhile now- it’s something I’ve wanted to address, but I’ve never been exactly sure how to approach it.  Also, I think it’s fairly unlikely that anyone I’d address this to is going to see it, but I suppose anything is possible, so- here goes. :|a

I’ve been playing Aymeric for over a year and a half now, and I have had an absolute blast doing so.  I’ve met a lot of awesome people, I’ve made friends- I’ve been lucky enough to even make a couple close friends, and I don’t have a lot of those in my life (mostly by design, but I admit I’m hard to get to know because I am cripplingly shy).  I’ve grown as both a writer and an artist since joining this community, and while I don’t at all regret it, I do feel the need to speak my mind here.

It’s been about six weeks since I’ve even logged onto Aymeric, because the grief I get when I play him in-game is staggering.

It doesn’t just apply to me, either- it applies to Ane as well, since her character on Balmung has his last name.

It’s hard for me to put my thoughts into words, because while this is honestly irritating, it’s also honestly hurtful.  I am a person- we are people- just like you are.  We play this game for fun, just like you do, and we enjoy what we do.  I’ve been told I’m not allowed to attend events because too many people dislike NPC RPers, and can you imagine how that feels?  I’m sure you can, but just in case- it sucks.  If you don’t like someone playing an NPC, it’s pretty darn simple to avoid them, you know?  You don’t have to acknowledge their presence at all, in-character.  I try to be as respectful of people as possible when I’m RPing in public (which, by the way, has happened a grand total of twice) because I know there are people who disapprove, but there needs to be a line drawn somewhere.

It’s not fair for me- for other NPC RPers- and the people close to us to have to constantly be blacklisting people and being made to feel ‘less than’ or even stupid for playing the characters we enjoy.  We’re constantly telling people, as a society, to ignore things we dislike if they don’t have any effect on us, and the truth is that my presence in-game has zero effect on you or your character.  If you’re being a dick to me, your presence has a massive detrimental effect on me.  Does that seem fair?

Please remember that whoever you encounter, wherever you go, is a person just like you.  Please treat them with respect, at the very least, even if that respect means just ignoring them and going on with your day- because I promise, the alternative is really crappy.  You have the power to completely wreck someone’s time in-game, and you have the power to make someone’s time in-game enjoyable. 

Choose the latter.  Don’t be the reason someone quits.
