Seeing you post all over the friend's page after the two of you tossed me aside and pretended like what we agreed upon didn't matter hurts my heart.

And to top it off, I feel so silly and idiotic for caring so much. It's just a game.

This is partially a vent and partially a plea for advice. It's a little hard to explain without giving specific details, so bare with me please.

The scenes have been a little fluffier than I would like, but I'm willing to deal with it because I otherwise really like the lines. That's, so far, the only complaint I have about writing with this individual - except for this: We keep running into each other. We keep unknowingly responding to each other's ads and it's not until we are deep in conversation that I realize who I am talking to. And while I am not against multiple lines with the same writer - if we click - there are reasons why I am not interested in picking up anymore lines with this writer. And, thus far, I have just been honest with them whenever we run into each other like that - "Hey, it's me!" But I feel like this running into one another is not going to change any time soon and well...each time it happens, I'm less inclined to reply to the scene we already have going. Mostly because the time between responses is...slow. Very slow. And I'm fine with that normally. I would be more fine with it in this case if they did not seem to respond to my ads every time I post one.

I'm not hating on this person. I just don't want all of my lines in the same boat or coming weeks apart. And I hate that them responding to my ads kills my motivation to respond to the scene we do have. Am I off my rocker here?

And this, kids, is why we save scenes as we go.

This being the surprise, overnight deletion of an entire game, comms and all, with all the writing you've been doing for months vanishing because something didn't go the mod's way icly and they decided to make it an ooc issue.

It's kind of hilarious how similar those two games are.

And by 'hilarious', I mean 'really fucking sad.'

You even lifted the goddamn ad.

no pms. i don't have the energy to fight about this. [27 May 2022|02:28pm]

By saying “I don’t like how things are going in the game so I’m going to make the entire community suffer” is immature. Not everything needs to revolve around you.

Also, I guess talking to each other like adults is out of the question. You’d rather be dramatic about it. No wonder things escalate so quickly around here, everyone is so quick to take rumors and run with them instead of dealing with the situation like a grown ass person.

Thanks for sucking the joy out of that game. You really ruined this experience for quite a few people. Hope you’re happy with yourself. I would just come to you directly and say these things but you're never going to grow as a human being so I don't see the point.

There is such a large part of me that wants to just say fuck it. It's a waste of my time and effort to tag you when you and I both know you are just going to flake off and disappear like you always do. I'm honestly surprised you are still even around considering you usually lose interest a few tags in to the custom much less making it to tagging.

I started off answering you to humor this and see how far it goes, how long you might last before you drop off like some kind of count down bingo game. But right now it doesn't help I don't feel good which is trying at my tolerance to bullshit and staring at your tags not even long enough to hold my interest either isn't helping your case.

I had to get this off my chest

(and to clarify, no it is not THAT person we're all familiar with)

Actively harassing someone or a group of people is bullying behavior. you are not the victim, you are the bully. There is no 'well he/she/they did this to me so that makes it okay for me to do xzy to them'. No, it doesn't. I do not care what narrative of events you've cooked up in your mind to try and explain away the bullying and stalking; you are not a good person at all.

I'm so used to things going poorly that when they're going extremely well, part of me is just waiting for everything to blow up in my face.

Is this a trauma response?

We’ve made friends, lost friends. We’ve had fun, we’ve had not-so-much fun. Isn’t RPing the worst, best hobby ever?

I’ve been through bullies. I’ve been through narcissists… but you know what hurts the most?

The Fake Friends.

“Friends” who only want you for their own purposes, their own storylines. Friends who pretend they’re your friend. Mostly, these types just want smut, but not all of them. Fake friends who ghost you, unless your character does what they want. Unless YOU do what THEY want. Did they make you feel uncomfortable? Better never tell them. They can’t handle anything but their own drama. Because they were never your friend to begin with.

But also, these “friends” are great at pumping sunshine up your ass about how you’re friends ‘beyond just rp’. You even begin to believe it, since you’ve played together for what, a few years? Been through highs and lows? Mainly, THEIR highs and lows that YOU helped them through. But the minute you have a low? They’re gone. Now, I still do have friends from decades ago who I met through RP, but apparently, only the real ones stick around.

Real friends talk out their issues no matter how uncomfortable those issues are.

Fake friends do not discuss issues. They delete you, ghost you, don’t talk about shit. That means anybody who has ever ghosted you in RP, who pretended to be your friend here, who did not discuss how you made them feel, or how they made you feel - they were fake. They were not your friend.

They were your fair-weather friend. Just as bad as the bullies and the narcissists.

Stay gone, fair-weather friend. For shame.

Yes I'm taking a break from rp and it will probably last for years but it damn hurts having to sell my journals because I just don't have money.

Because I'm sure I'm not the only one who needs to hear this: When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. This misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth - just like you did.

Some days I just want to quit modding completely. If it's not someone playing internet detective and getting my ID totally wrong, it's someone thinking I let one player get away with more when I objectively don't and won't. Go find another game if you hate my modding!

A little reminder to all the mods out there that bullying happens in groups, and prioritizing the needs of the group over the individual isn't always going to be the right thing to do.

This is probably a "just me" thing, but for a hobby that prides itself on writing, the purposeful lack of capitalization bugs the heck out of me.

it’s been awhile but i’m truly lost and upset. [19 Apr 2022|02:18am]

1. you told me you weren’t going to flake, then you slowly started to, when you came back you tricked me into thinking my other lines didn’t like me so you could have ALL my attention, then you flaked again, said you’ll be around after i asked if everything was okay… until you just completely freakin ghosted me. no word not even if i asked if you were okay because after all we were friends first. actual friends ooc and now you’re gone. it just really hurts and the worst part is i don’t even know if you’re okay.

2. nothing to do with the other but why when a new game pops up it’s only one celebrity everyone wants to play? and there’s like 3 challenges. i will never understand the hype around said celebrity and it just drives me insane.

I can't tell if I'm being targeted to have certain posts taken down, while I see other people doing the exact same thing, or if I'm just butthurt and don't understand why mine's wrong. I also don't want to point out other people's stuff and get them in trouble, in order to get clarification for myself, so I'm not sure if I'll get the guts to ask what the difference is.

Depression sucks.

If one person has a complaint about another writer, I can understand being skeptical on there being any truth to it. But when it's nearing double digits and they ALL have the same story to tell...this might be a good time for you to admit to what you're doing and stop playing the victim. It's definitely not them, it's you.

i wish more people would actually try to research the celeb they're using for pb or celeb to see if there's an exposed problematic history before picking them up and choosing a different person if so. especially for celeb. there are so many other faces to use out there to choose from that don't have a history of racism or homophobia or violence. and the people still wanting to write against these faces are just as bad. there's already so many blurry racists on this server that make it difficult for someone wanting to write a poc to get any interaction. and i'm just tired of it.

Maybe don't advertise as a game if it's going to be just a gpsl with outsiders left with nothing. Just say it's a gpsl and move on, don't let us all get excited for the zero attention we are going to get. 🙃
