pledis has lots of negative sides, but allowing their artists to date isn’t the only right thing they did. first, they take health issues seriously. in aju nice era, wonwoo got enough time to rest and recuperate. when vernon was injured, they chose not to let him perform with the rest of svt in kcon japan. recently, they also chose to let hoshi rest than participate in kcon l.a. and when produce 101 was over, the nu’est members (jr, baekho, and ren) were given enough time to rest. last but definitely not the least, they don’t force their artists into strict diet.
Context: i play a male dwarf barbarian in a party with a female gnome wizard, male elf ranger, female half orc fighter, and a male human cleric. My dwarf has no facial hair because of story reasons and long braided hair. The cleric grew up in a human-only town and had never seen a dwarf before. So he was convinced that no beard meant he was female, and has continued to hit on my dwarf every chance he got. My dwarf, after a whole in game year of this constant flirting (he barely began to take notice) decides he’s had enough.
The following takes place as we are shopping in a busy marketplace.
Cleric: Oh look love,*holds up a jewel necklace* i got a gift for you!
Dwarf: Dont want it.
Cleric: Whats wrong love? You usually like it when i buy you things.
Me(ooc): We’re in the middle of a marketplace right?
DM: Yup, middle of the day, tons of people around you.
Dwarf: IM NOT YOUR GODDAMN-UH *pulls down pants* I have a dong so there!
Party(ooc): Starts to loose their shit.
Dm: Make an intimidation check.
Party: *Hysteria intensifies*
DM: (cleric) you find youself blushing at the sight of his dong. (Dwarf) Role for seduction.
Me: Oh shit, here we go.
*rolls a 18*
Cleric(ooc): Im a cleric having some very unholy thoughts!
Cleric: I dont care. *grabs my dwarf’s hands* My feelings for you will never change. *kisses dwarf*
Me(ooc): Im…I..I have nothing. I literally cant think of anything to do.
DM: As this beautiful display is happening, surrounded by dozens of civillians with various expressions, the light bouncing off of (dwarf)’s dwarven butt cheeks catches the eyes of a guard.
Guard: Hey pull up those pants your under arrest.
Half orc: Back off this has been months in the making!
*rolls a nat 20 intimidation*
Wizard: I cast an illusion of (dwarf)’s dong ‘reacting’.
Me(ooc): Too late.
Long story short they are still together and my dwarf is ring hunting.
