I miss our line & our friendship so much ughhhh

[info]steelheart in [info]rpvents

Look. I'm the first to admit I'm a slow tagger of threads. My timezone is unusual, I work incredibly long hours during the week. I've thankfully been incredibly lucky with the majority of my PSL partners in that they a) accept this b) are slow taggers themselves. Despite that isn't it polite to ask if someone is still interested in a line instead of assuming they're not especially if it's only been about a week since the last time I tagged the thread?

I know it's not for everyone the slow tagging but at least tell me it isn't for you instead of letting me discover that I can no longer access the thread.

If you're not feeling our line, that's cool, just let me know. Watching our posts die after one or two replies is a bummer, especially when I see you going crazy with your other lines in the same game. I am tired of poking.

I keep trying to write these, just having a really bad time right now. Though I haven't looked at the thing I know is going to make me sad for ages now even though I want to see how much more they are playing together while ignoring me entirely. One point me I guess? I'm finding other things to do, I just really still love that line..

A line isn't worth this.

Maybe it's just me... but when a player uses a phrase over and over, I want to kick them and ask them why and tell them to say it definitely. It's a phrase they use sometimes twice in a paragraph. Sometimes it doesn't even need to be there. It's just taking up space. Not just in scenes, but it's used in their characters bios, too.

It sucks being in a game and feeling like you can't keep up because the fpage moves so fast and gamewide plots seem to happen every other day. I haven't even had the chance to figure out who all the characters are or who they're related to. And all the icons look the same, with at least half of the face cut off, so that's no help.

I'm exhausted just trying to keep up.

It’s really hard to let someone go when they won’t stop commenting you.

You said you would leave me alone. You said you would stop. But you haven’t. And you know what it does to me when I get a message from you. Yet you continue to do it. Just leave me alone. Please!

1- dear celeb, I am so glad you got that off your chest but you killed the relationships I had created in my little rp world. I would have loved some kind of warning you were about to spill your rather savagely brutal guts.

2- I am so scared this kid is written by one of my past bullies. they are coming into a comm where I'm actually having fun for once. I'm going to be so sad if this isn't ok.

[info]primitiveheart in [info]rpvents

i feel like this should go without saying, but for fuck's sake, ooc/ic line crossing... really? honestly? how can you chastise me (or my character for that matter) for something that frankly has nothing to do with you or your own character? and the worst part about it: you have me feeling guilty for doing nothing wrong, and guilty for doing something that was completely separate from you/your character/what we had going. i hate this feeling, especially because i love(d) our line so fucking much.

[info]vanessavalarian in [info]rpvents

Sigh.

I knew trying to get a game going at a busy time was a bad idea, but it hurts seeing all the interested players holding at the shiny new game. I haven't said the one I'm making won't be opening, but is it worth keeping going if everyone's going elsewhere?

Still, it's a shiny new fandom playground, maybe I won't be a defeatist just yet.

STOP the Godmoding gossip list.

Alright, I just found out I was put in some sort of 'Godmoding' avoid writing list? )

[info]steelheart in [info]rpvents

When what is supposed to be one of your safe spaces on the internet changes so quickly just by growing that you come to hate it and reinforces the idea that you should just up and quit.

Except WTF do people do on the computer when they don't RP? Like seriously. I've been RP'ing for that long I literally don't know what I would do. Write my original work? Tumblr? Twitter? Facebook? None of those will take up the time I spend RP'ing. I know I can icon and I do but I get bored with all of that stuff quickly. It's why I've never actually left RP because I'm terrified of what I'd do without it.

It sounds horrible but it's become such a crutch for me in so many ways that I just don't know...

Edit: I am exaggerating slightly in terms of not knowing what to do but it has been a crutch for me and it's overwhelming and produces anxiety at the thought of leaving but it also produces anxiety when I'm doing it which is the main problem of what I'm trying to convey here. I'm super tired and probably not conveying myself well.


While the beginning of the vent is the same having slept and stepped away from the internet for awhile things don't seem as bad. Perhaps hormones, emotions, lack of sleep and dealing with RL BS made things worse than they were. Still everyone has amazing points and I do thank you for them nonetheless.

This hobby would be so much easier if I liked the same fandoms/character types/etc. as other players.

I know that people can't really control their muses, but being the weirdo in a hobby full of weirdos sucks sometimes. Like finding a group of people who are weird and being like 'ah, my people!' but then nope. You're still the weird one.

Yeah, there won't ever be a time where seeing you advertise won't pull at my heartstrings and make me feel like this, especially because there was never any drama between you and I (and therefore, no closure), it was just drama between me and your friends. And it sucks that I lost the best PSL partner I've had in recent history over it all.

PSL WISHES

Got a lot of new friends on here lately, so posting it for all the people in the back! ;) I'm open to much more too and have a whole list of canons I play somewhere (that needs updated!)

[info]tsorr in [info]rpvents

Omg. Oh. My. God. You and your character are the clingiest, most desperate people I have ever met. I honestly feel bad for our mutual story line partner.

Edit: No baby your character shouldn't have come for mine because she's jealous. Petty flows through me and by extension my character. She could make your character cry with words alone.

Also don't throw salt and try to hide your hand, I got receipts baby.

fuck the great ij mix up of a few years ago. literally digging through emails to find old threads bc i can't fucking access ANY of the old comms even though i'm a member is a goddamn headache. fuck SAKE.

I very rarely delete old journals. I like keeping them to go back every once in a great while to re-read old posts, but then I fall down holes and just try to figure out WTF happened.

I made a list of old journals yesterday and deleted a ton of them. Far too many that were just sitting there and not being used.

It felt good. Like letting go.

But now I'm like "what if I want to use that handle again? I'll have to buy a rename token and waste money on it, when it was already my journal."

So. I need to go over this list again before 2 weeks are up and decide if I really, really want to delete them.

[info]plums in [info]rpvents

I never would have done that to you. But clearly I misunderstood what was going on here, and I won't be reaching out anymore.

I did not realize how awful I was at reading people until this year. JFC. It's like I'm new.

[info]raygun in [info]rpvents

1. i love being right.
2. i'd love for my brain to get with the program and write more/better. this slump is annoying.
