I honestly don't understand people. When did RP get so damn frustrating???

is there such a thing as too eager? i feel like that's me. i am always quick to respond, get super invested in lines (playlists, spam, the works) and i feel like its off putting but i can't help it. im easily excited especially when a line involes otps or a plot idea i have been chewing on and hoping for finally pops up.

Please don't disappear. I need something to keep my mind off of real life and the beach is too far of a drive now.

i don't usually get too upset about people disappearing, but the fact that this person was not even my storyline partner and i'm this gutted because i don't think i'll find someone this witty and just wonderful again, well, that's depressing. maybe i have grown out of this hobby

What are games that people would actually LIKE to see? Meaning storylines, fandoms, etc. Just curious.

I'm really hoping this whole thing doesn't continue to drive rifts between folks. I have a feeling it will and I wish there was something I could do about it.

Of course, doing something about it would mean laying out a lot of hard truths to people. Then again, maybe they're just truths for me and not for them?

It's a tough call for sure.

So tired of things I use for RP shutting down. Does anyone have an e-mail app that will let you reply to comments from it? Newton just informed that it’s shutting down soon -_-

Just one day I would like to come home from work and not be so tired. I've got so much I want to do but no energy to do it.

it sucks getting back into a fandom when it isn't popular anymore.

Re: this post:

Just in case we actually don't get to this...

I'd been trying to figure out how to get around the issue that Tiamat would have to deal with the Gatemaster to get what Prime Ed wanted in exchange for service, but I've been informed that nobody has to go in and mess with anyone's memories, because Al.... uh. Well, I guess it depends on how you define 'survived' the transmutation that took out Haloa and threw Ed into WoF. He did get caught in it, which Ed will just love to hear, but- as with most other Eds and Als -that Ed and Al shared a soul. So Al's soul didn't disappear into the Stone, it just settled in to stay in the same body as its other half, since its own body wasn't there anymore. So uh. At least he's not part of the Stone????

That does leave the problem of Trisha being without her children- and Roy and Riza, for that matter -but the Gatemaster would be fine with throwing a couple homunculii of Ed and his brother back to Amestris. It would solve the problem of Trisha having an extremely long life ahead of her without her children anyway.

The reason they'd be doing it without any real effort* on Tiamat's part is because Prime Ed and Pandora Ed are identical, up to the bikes breaking down that they were trying to escape Haloa, down to the quantum level. And since Pandora Ed was claimed by Her, the Gatemaster would just as soon be safer than sorry with handling Prime Ed, just to make sure they don't step on Her toes. So they'll create homunculii of Prime Ed and his brother to send back to Amestris, and in exchange, he has to serve Tiamat. Tiamat's job in this exchange is to make sure that Prime Ed doesn't do something monumentally stupid, like, you know, kill himself. "Just. Keep him alive. Please. It probably wouldn't be a problem if he decides to hang himself- not on a cosmic level, anyway -but we can't actually see anything when it comes to Her, and we'd rather not take chances. Consider this us purchasing our peace of mind."

They'd be peeking in and asking Tiamat permission to enter the negotiations and speak with her privately before they show their faces where the non-gods present can see, so Tiamat wouldn't have to do anything except maybe put up with what may seem as a little rudeness on their part for sticking their noses in before she'd say anything. Unless she says something first. That's TBD.

*I feel the need to add that 'effort' may be used a bit loosely, because while technically this means that Prime Ed's brother can't die without him, and vice versa, and also that he doesn't have to transmute a fucking city to keep his brother safe anymore, this still is going to shatter his poor little heart and brain, so keeping him alive maaaaaaay be a bit more difficult than it looks like at first.

Yes, the joke originally was that She/Her was the muns, because I really just wanted an excuse to have the Gate boys gathering up servants and soulbinding them so that, as a mun, I didn't have to stress over keeping the idiot characters alive, but I've decided to go ahead and expand that away from the joke and into something a bit more tangible for the purposes of gameplay.

"She" is all the Gatemaster knows Her as, because they've never been given a name for Her, but as nearly as they can tell, She is the state of non-existence, which is a contradiction in terms and makes no fucking sense, because in order to be a state, one must exist, and non-existence can't be a state, because it doesn't exist, by the very definition of the term. Which is why the Gatemaster can't see anything that's going on with Her. But, when Dark Order obliterates something out of existence, that 'out of existence' is right to where She resides. I figure this way, the Gate has reason to not want to piss Her off, and also there's a reason they can't see what the fuck is going on with Her, because She's somehow beyond existence.

Trust me, it bugs the fuck outta them, and offends their scientist sensibilities. Tough titties, says I.

Ed hypothesizes that She is actually a mirror to the Lord of Nightmares, in a parallel multiverse, even though that shouldn't make any sense either. It makes more sense than something having the state of existence of being non-existent. Why She has any interest in their multiverse that She'd send an emissary and tell them that She's got 'dibs' on certain people in certain worlds, and that She needs them to take a more vested interest in the mortal world than Sophie did and look out for certain people, they're not sure, but the fact that they can't actually find Her, except to be able to tell that She is very much real, and is very much not someone they want to piss off, makes them inclined to not take chances.

That's okay, they kinda were wanting the excuse to start taking care of their alternates and said alternates' families.

Sometimes RP reminds me too much of high school theater. More drama going on backstage than on stage.

I've been having a shitty time of it in RPland...until I skimmed through this. I don't even want to know what game it was, who was running it or any other details. I'm 98% certain I know what fandom it is...a much abused fandom in RP/fanfic land, but wow. Reading someone actually try to defend that crap? I'm now looking at my shitty time and going "Lalala! I feel so much better now!"

Becoming disabled isn't the end of the world.

Using a wheelchair isn't automatically a source of pity and angst.

It's 2018. Disabled characters aren't your pity porn. Disabled writers are out here, and writing our disabilities shouldn't be your angsty plot twist. Let us have plots where we see ourselves as something other than a goddamn tragedy.

The minute I kind of get my RP brain back, my net decides to slow down to a snail's pace. /Ramsay c'mon gif/

But I could always use some more muses to foster, so does anyone have any awesome book recommendations with strong females in the lead?

so, I fucked up. I crossed the biggest ooc/ic possible and its probably weird to even post this here to a bunch of strangers but I literally can't tell or talk to anyone irl about it. My long-term slp and I had been writing together for two years if not a little more, 1.5 of those we were best friends. We talked literally every hour we were awake, about everything and nothing. Hell we had our own vocabulary, I can honestly say I haven't ever been as close to another human as I was with her. Things were pretty awesome tbh then I caught feelings and like an idiot confessed them. At first her response was basically we're an ocean a part even if I wanted the same ..ya get the drift then a few days later it was i had projected these feelings or saw things that weren't there etc etc

So in one swoop I lost not only my best friend but an amazing line and 6 months later I still can't play in certain fandoms or as certain celebs for fear of running into her and feeling like a ducking creep. This sounds insane I know and I'm sorry for posting this here but it hurts still and like I said I can't exactly tell any rl people that im upset about a person I've never met and lines missed all in one.

Dubious consent plots featuring minors and ~sinful~ homophobe-turned-homosexual dalliences?

And all this time I thought the author's twitter was going to be what ruined this series for me.

So thanks for that.
