So I’m fortunate enough to be blessed with a partner who, on top of actual character development, roleplays and creates AUs/OCs/Ships with me strictly for smutservice. You know, the ones that come and go, basically tailored to certain kinks.
Every once in a while though, I won’t get the cue. I roleplay x new pairing with a serious outlook. Sometimes they’re not in the mood. Sometimes, a surprise plot appears. And they being the awesome partner they are, accommodate actual development to an extent before just deciding they don’t want to rp this anymore altogether.
Certain kinks have become such a theme in our roleplay that I just don’t realize they’re not just an imminent occurrence. And then suddenly I love this muse, and I really REALLY want to plot with it, but partner doesn’t even want to touch it.
