No one is asking you to tell your internet friends your business, if you’re going to make shit up at least be consistent.
So many unpublished fics end up collecting dust on my computer this way..
Nothing helps you get through writers block like five hours of angsty music that reminds you of the pain you delightfully put your characters through.
I told my RP partner that she couldn’t scare me off no matter how kinky it got, and basically gave her free reign. I think I just issued a challenge…
It started out as a joke with raptors.
It then became canon insanity.
When the OOC group chat becomes nothing so much as a steady flow of flirting, mutual declarations of group marriage, and furious capslocking whenever someone comes online or posts a reply or says a thing that gives everyone feels. ILU GUYS.

It’s happened several times now, mostly with genres I haven’t RPed in ages. I’ll randomly have a dream with the characters or something similar and wake up with an insane desire to roleplay it.
It seems like such a simple thing, right? But I was too caught up in my memories of having fun and my wild expectations that it would magically become fun again. Me being stressed and unhappy was making all my friends stressed and unhappy, and eventually I realized that I wasn’t really thinking of them as friends anymore so much as I was thinking of them as bullies.
I spent a while thinking that I just wouldn’t talk to anyone about my characters and ideas and played almost exclusively with the couple of people who I knew wouldn’t jump down my throat, but the RPs were still public to everyone in the group who wanted to read them, so it didn’t really resolve anything. Eventually I decided to just go on total hiatus and give myself six months completely away from the place. My six months ended, and I didn’t feel like I wanted to go back. I’m a little regretful sometimes thinking about all the relationships and plots that were abandoned, but there’s really no way I could justify going back to that environment, I’m so much more relaxed and happy with all that behind me.
If you’ve ever have the thought “maybe I should just quit,” please stop and take a minute to evaluate why you feel that way. RP is a hobby and a way to unwind - if you spend more time stressed out and angry and upset than you spend enjoying yourself and having fun, trust me, it isn’t worth sticking through it on the blind hope that things will eventually get better. You don’t deserve to live your life feeling that way because of a hobby.
( I do apologize, I’m absolutely terrible at meme making)
I try to find roleplayers whenever my friends are unable to, and It’s honestly hard. I hop on omegle to find some, and I always leave unsatisfied. ( Serves me right for using it half the time.). Whenever I go into the yaoi tags, I’m always forced into the seme position. If I say I’m a switch (or “seke”) kind of person they disconnect from me immediately. It makes me a little upset that nobody asks what I’d like to be. I honestly don’t know why I even bother going back.
Dammit, YouTube notification, why are you not a tag?
