why do people think bts is losing their “bts-ness” because this album sounds different? even if you prefer their older sound and this album isn’t your favorite, it’s still bts, and it feels like bts. why? because they explore new genres all the time. they explore new sounds. they experiment and aren’t afraid to branch out of their comfort zone. not to mention the lyrics themselves are very bts. just because it’s a different vibe and not your favorite doesn’t mean they’re losing their “bts-ness” whatever that means
Just because she’s cute, doesn’t mean she’ll date you.
I wasn’t going to put anything about this on Tumblr, but the more I thought about it while I was at work, I felt I needed to say something.
A while ago, I made an aquaintance who was, at the time a male Au Ra. We chatted about our characters and traded ideas (we were both only new to the characters we were playing as- Ohka didn’t have a proper backstory at the time and they just had a few ideas that they’d not put together yet). During this conversation, I mentioned that Ohka is recently widowed and was interested in races other than Miqo’te when it came to relationships; her late husband was an Elezen. It should be noted that I also told them she wasn’t looking for a relationship after her last one turned into a very soul-crushing life event.
Anyway, we sent each other friend requests and I hadn’t seen them online since, until earlier today.
First thing I noticed was pretty obvious- they weren’t an Au Ra, but an Elezen. Fair enough, I thought, maybe they’ve made another character instead. We chatted about his new character’s backstory and I thought it was all good until he told me,
‘Then your character will date him for sure! I know it!’
Thus causing my brain to begin it’s pterodactyl screeching that signals an anxiety attack. I try not to be rude as I tell them that while Ohka is single, she’s not actively looking for love. They persist and I stop responding while I check in with some friends in an LS, who tell me to run and blacklist this person asap.
But the more I thought about it, the more frustrated I got that someone would just assume that my character would date theirs, despite the fact that we’d only ever spoken twice, OOCly, and never about a relationship between them. If and when Ohka enters a relationship ICly, it will be because it’s agreed on by both roleplayers first, not one pressuring the other, and because it feels like a natural progression.
The long and short of it is, please don’t do this to people. It’s frustrating and trying to coerce me by saying, ‘but she’s cute’ isn’t going to win me over. My character is my own, and not asking or consulting me about it first just makes me really angry. You aren’t entitled to anything from Ohka or I just beacuse you think she’s cute.
Also thank you to the lovely people in Pizza Box Meme LS for confiming that I’m not crazy in thinking this was weird af™
omg a little one-year-old baby kept trying to get me to hold her! She was so sweet, although I think she was mostly just trying to get out of the cart haha. Her dad said she doesn’t do that to many people though, so I still feel honored. She was sooo cute, and I really wanted to hold her! But I was like, “no, you have to stay in the cart! Also I’m a stranger!”
OKAY BUT KIDS AT CAMP ACTUALLY CALLED ME DAD,,,EVERY DAY THEY’D JUST BE LIKE “HI DAD” AND I’D BE LIKE “HI THERE, SON”,,,ONE KID ACTUALLY WANTED TO INTRODUCE ME TO HIS FATHER AND SAY I WAS HIS OTHER FATHER
