Context: My character has a powerful necklace that they keep hidden under their shirt and several scarves. I’d tell you what it does, but my party members might read this. It was warm and muggy one day and everyone began shedding their outer layers (except for the orc brawler, who is only ever wearing pants). I take off two of my three scarves, but leave the last.
Dwarf (NPC): This might seem like a weird question, but… Why are you always wearing those scarves?
Me: I just like scarves.
Me: *total bluff check = 23*
Dwarf: That’s alright. I just don’t want you to overheat.
Orc: Yeah. You’re going to roast.
Orc: You’re okay with that? Is your scarf obsession really worth it?
Me: I’m sentimental.
Orc: Seriously, what the fuck.
Elf: Just leave him alone! He’s a sensitive young man!
Orc (heavy sarcasm): Well, excuse me if I don’t shed a tear.
Elf: Besides, even if it is something, we’re all allowed to have secrets.
Me (ooc): He gives you a thankful smile.
DM: Which begs the question: What is he hiding from you?
Orc (whispering to the Elf): I just don’t trust him! There’s something sketchy about him.
*everyone succeeds their perception of that exchange but me*
Me (accidentally interrupting): Look. You have every right to travel in the nude, but some of us value our modesty.
Orc (ooc): I want to roll to intimidate.
DM: The massive half orc takes a step towards you and glares down.
Elf (ooc): With his muscular bare chest. Naked by your standards. Nipples fully erect.
*everyone at the table loses it*
Me (ooc): You know what? I’m not even going to roll. I’m intimidated.
JOSH KEATON DOESN'T DESERVE THIS BULLSHIT. LEAVE SPACE DAD ALONE!!!
Seriously guys, stop it. Don’t be fucking rude to those who find joy in something that you do not. Grow the fuck up. And personally, I advise everyone in this fandom to not ask the cast/crew about the Voltron otps/ships. It’s just awkward to me… and I also believe it is for them, too. They have to think about what to say so you guys don’t bust a nut over whatever response you get.
