I miss comms, but I don't miss you and you're EVERYWHERE.

if 98-99% of a game's cast is white, that's a big red flag to stay away from your game. if you have 5+ characters and they're all white, don't request poc in an ad until you pick one up yourself.

I love this character but since he's lost his major storylines, I am having the worst time with him.

When you type a good reply in a tab that's been up for a while, not realizing you're logged into the wrong journal until you hit post. Even worse, when you hit back and the reply is gone.

Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. I don't know if I can handle this kind of enthusiasm.

Watching a bunch of people make a big public production about how they're going to start a game that's so much better than all the other games like it... then they launch, and the whole thing is riddled with typos and grammatical errors and lore problems.

I don't know exactly what your deal is. You're super polite, so that's great, but you race to every plot post, set something up with everyone, and then in actual game play, you're like...

This awesome James Franco gif set. )

At least let me honestly know if you want to continue the line, or have this thing we talked about happen. Don't have me be the one making all the decisions.

why bother joining a game if you're just going to play meaningless small talk to pass activity? isn't the whole point of being in a game to tell a collaborative story with other players?

so, look: this is what happens.

when you court players whose apps are fucking terrible, who can't write to save their lives, who don't care enough to make their bios pass the laugh test, who i know - i know! - there's no way in hell you, the mods, would ever actually write with yourselves ... when you let these people into your game and basically uphold no quality standards, you lose the people who actually have something to contribute. you alienate everyone who doesn't want to deal with this shitshow you've unleashed into the comm. you lose the players who care enough about your game, and their characters, to put in some effort. i don't know if you think your game will be more attractive simply because it has a larger cast list, but - it really, really will not. everyone looks at it, sees that it's full of deeply boring self-insert porn puppets, and they move on.

and then your game fucking fails, and you wonder why. it's because it really seems like you don't give a fuck about your game.

It's surprisingly hard to decide if I want a long term OTP when I don't quite care for the way the other player wants to play the character. But they're one of a few who even write them and they are better than some I've tried to make it work with. But still, can I keep up the enthusiasm when I don't like that aspect? I don't know.

Random gripe at no one in particular

I picked a PB for a video game character that I THOUGHT would be easy to either find icons for or make icons for considering she's got a show out, she's in a couple movies, and she's straight up beautiful. So why can I find almost no icons for her and only a handful of photoshoots? What is up with that? Why does the world not want more of this woman?

If you're going to play arguably the most important, plot-wise, character in a GPSL, maybe you should tag everyone in a timely manner, not just your eventual ship partner.

Also, I can't play that certain type of character (even though I literally am that type of character RL) but a mod can do it and use a grand total of three words in their app to address it. Lovely.

I've heard what you did after I left. What you said my character did. A friend who still plays there told me about it. I understand why she is upset for me and my character, but I'm not upset. Here's the thing. I left for good reasons and I haven't regretted it once. What happens after that doesn't affect me or my character. You can say what they've done or not done, but the reality is that it's my character and I'm the one that shapes their past, present and future. So, if I move them somewhere else or toss them into a PSL that is actually what happens to them. Go ahead, do your worst, but it's just an NPC now and nothing more. I won't let it bother me, and further more I've asked my friend to not tell me what you do or what happens.

On another note, I've reached out to another in hopes of rekindling a line. The wait is killing me and I have no clue if they will respond. It's been days. For all I know they are in hurricane central and I hope they are okay.

I desperately want to try an original rp, but I worry about players who agree to almost everything and then do nothing but react. rp requires 2 players. if I wanted to write on my own I would have started a fic.

Self Vent: Unsure if you did something wrong but being way too shy to ask.

New low for IJ:

People dropping PSLs because I haven't tagged in a few days, despite the fact that I've told them I live in Houston. Have they not seen the news? Sorry I can't tag when I'm evacuating friends and wondering every night if my neighborhood be next, lmfao. ¯\(°_o)/¯

I've wanted to write all week but nobody is around, so I'm just frustrated instead. Bad week and no outlet. So much fun.
