Is there a language your guy doesn't speak? Constantly, it's "oh, yeah, he totally understands what those people in the thread are saying in ____________" (pick a language; extra bonus points for something extremely difficult that requires years of dedicated study to master). He does not have a Universal Translator chip in his brain, and I have never heard of a human being with the ability to understand an entire language simply by hearing a few phrases once or twice.

Ugh.

People who go on and on about how much they've been flaked on and how much they hate it only to turn around and flake are almost as annoying as those who just flat out flake.

I keep looking back at comms I was in and think about all the good times I had there, nostalgia striking hard and fast and tempting me to bring a character back there... and then I remember the shit that I went through both IC and OOC with you people and I think "wtf is wrong with me to want to put myself through that again."

You treated me like shit, you used me to make yourself feel better about your crazy and then when I stopped talking to you you call me, on my house phone instead of my cellphone (not that I would appreciate either), in the middle of the night or message me like you didn't treat me like I was so far below you that I should feel honoured to even talk to you. There is a reason that there are so few people willing to play with you and why your games turned into glorified PSLs.

Two unrelated things:

1) I don't understand this need to do everything in customs. Why bother with a comm if you're just going to essentially PSL in the game's world? Is it because people don't want to world build themselves or what?

2) Excuse me while I laugh at the fact that your inactive, cliquey asses were SUPER rude on your way out the door, then less than a week later you're posting friends-locked updates set in our 'world' referencing characters in our game that we can see because you didn't clear your friends lists. (I personally forgot to run the button because I had big assignments due last week and here we are....)

I feel sad tonight, and there is no suitable psl for me to vent it in. Where did all of the heart wrenching, tear jerking stories go? I'm tired of happily ever after.

So uninspired by everything RP-wise lately. Feel like people are tired of me and bored with everything they're writing with me. How do I get my groove back?

That moment when you have a character you adore but can't seem to find the right fit for them. Makes me paranoid that maybe he's lacking in some way I'm not seeing.

Really wanting to write a transgendered character with a female PB but knowing I'll get nothing but shit from players and characters in this city-based game... That's that shit I don't like!

When you type like everything is a lyric post. People are going to know it's you. Even if you use your other character to respond first. It didn't throw us off. Sorry to break the news to you. You are OBVIOUS.

something that you do for fun shouldn't hurt you emotionally. i think it's time i officially throw in the towel. i quit rping for good.

Kind of losing hope in RPing. I don't know why it's been so hard the past year. It used to be so easy and so exciting to be part of new game, develop new story lines and meet new people. Now I find myself venting and struggling with apping, plotting and just being frustrated with RPing.

Maybe I'm outgrowing RPing. It sucks because I do love writing, plotting and character development. But it just isn't the same anymore.

Not knowing what someone means when they ask for a type of line you've never heard of before because you're new to offering psls and being more concerned with looking like an idiot for not knowing rather than asking. So you ignore it. Thus losing a potentially good line. Fail.

Did you seriously just get your damn feelings hurt and pull an sl because I said I wasn't ok with you god modding my characters actions and the things they say? :| ok. That sucks but alrighty then.

On a whole separate matter...

After I get home from work and I want to wind down for my day and i see my awesome slp partners on. I do not. Repeat DO NOT want to have you I'm me. Ask to scene and then do nothing but ooc me for hours with no scene work. Even if I start it off. Better yet. I don't want you to ask me what my chars are up to. I cont want to tell you if it's not gonna get played. I mean the word is in the name it self. Role play. Come on man this is getting old. Rp releases my stress and gets me away from it for a little while talking ooc does not. That's all.

Sorry for the reposted. Added something else. [15 Apr 2014|12:18pm]

Okay, so...for a little over a year now, I have been playing one specific actress in the celeb genre. She is not very popular, I don't think, and I picked her up because a friend asked me too. (Granted, I am a huge fan myself so that is not an issue.) However, before this, I had not done celeb RP in YEARS. In fact, I found it wholey difficult to write, overall un-entertaining, and basically...my nitch in it has become picture posts with the occasional blog entry and comments to certain people on her friends list.

Now, when I first started to RP...I did only celeb. Granted, I was young...but I had NO problem playing the girl that I primarily wrote. I could have her date, get her married, have her get pregnant....nothing was an issue. Hell, I could do something completely childish and wipe her clean with a new history and never think twice about it.

That's not the case now. Now, I find it difficult to do anything that the actual person is not doing in real life. IE she was visiting her hometown over the weekend and I find it difficult to make her end up at Coachella, even though I want to. When it comes to PB, I have no problems with anything...but with celeb, I have a wall of "need to be realistic" that I am trying to break through, but it's not working.

Anyone have a sledgehammer that I can borrow?

On a completely unrelated note...

Yes. I, as her writer, am fully aware that my married character is, not only crazy but, turning herself into a cockhop. Really. It is she has evolved into over the last few weeks. My other girls are not like that. I am aware of it. It is only one character.

Now, for the vent part of this, dear self...wtf?!

Okay, so I think I've finally figured out how the rp formula works now.

1. Plot out sl with someone.

2. Create journals, aim sns, get amped for your awesome new line.

3. Write a starter. (Inevitably I will always be the one to do this.)

4. Read, enjoy and respond to your new slp's scene reply.

5. Wait a solid 7 - 10 days for another reply.

6. Patiently entertain roughly 8,428 excuses about why they haven't replied yet.

7. Wait another 6 1/2 years for your next reply. You have now spent 6 1/2 years trying to finish one scene.

8. Listen to another 42,312 excuses that become increasingly dramatic in direct proportion to how long it's been between your slp's replies, ranging from I'm really sick right now to my house literally blew up and I am now incarcerated in Bangladesh but I SWEAR I'll have a reply by this weekend!

9. Slowly accept defeat in yet another sl and do your best to shake the disappointing realization that yep, it's happening again.

10. End the sl and get ready for the next cycle of flaking and excuses. Except this time, I think I've finally reached the end of my rope after the last 4 sls I've tried to write have ended this way, so I'm officially done.

What is the point of telling someone to go ahead and toss up a thread if your only going to tag it once and never finish?

I'm not the RPer who only cares about journal layout and icons that don't show anyone's forehead.

That being said, your non-standard size, poorly cropped, blurry icons are awful. You don't have to know how to make icons yourself to RP, you know. There are tons of communities that offer gorgeous, clear 100 x 100 icons of nearly anyone you'd want. All you have to do is credit them, which is simple.
