You've been accused of ghosting before and took offense to it, only for the criticism to prove genuine. You drop friends when you get in with a new crowd, but accuse others of abandoning you first. You drop pre-established lines when something newer or shinier comes along and still expect that original line to be your fallback option later, or to be told that your attitude is acceptable; because it's all just a game, right? Except no one is allowed to do that to you. Feels crappy, doesn't it? You make excuses and point the finger elsewhere because you can't own up to your own shitty behavior or accept responsibility for your part in things. You complain about things that people do or just about how people are behind their back but backpedal when you're called out for it. You claim to have all of these problems with your SLP but didn't bother to communicate them, thus leaving them unknown and unresolved - but somehow that's never your fault. Tell me, how can a person fix a problem they aren't aware of?

Pot, meet kettle. You goddamn hypocrite. I hope you don't pull the same on others, but I know you will. Grow the hell up.

Why, when people say they're sick of a particular type of game not existing, do they not come to the games that people make of that type? I've had this happen, and I've also seen it happen to other games. You wanted it, it's there, why is it not enough? Yes, I know, mods have to be active and invested and so on, but beyond that, why not? Players need to be invested, too, at least in playing in the ones that exist, or mods will figure that's why the games don't work, no one's interested.

My best friend has stage four melanoma bone cancer. So I'd rather be writing as a distraction than dealing with it. But I hate that I can't be motivated to tag or to put out an ad. I hate that no matter how often I workout and try to work past it, I can't. I hate that I feel so powerless both creatively and as a friend. I'm torn & conflicted, because I need a distraction. But I'm so drained at the end of my conversations with her to want to write. I just don't know what to do.

The new iOS update apparently fucks up quotation marks, no longer making it possible to link usernames and communities in html format. Bruh.

Your characters fail the Bechdel test so often that it's giving me second hand embarrassment.

I’m not the same person I was all those years/months ago.

Yet there are people out there who like to remind me of my past immature choice of words and actions. etc whenever I try to advertise for storylines.

One of my old, favorite characters is stuck in this sad space. That's where I left her last fall, I fished her out for a while when I really needed to write to take my mind off shitty life things, and then somehow, recently, I got stuck revisiting where she was before. I kind of get it. It's more interesting to explore how she'd react to all that. But I always like to happily ever after my old characters, and I liked hers.

I tried to find that pdf book converter so I could just delete her journals and be done with it, but it converted a whole five entries and that's not helpful. If I have to do it by hand, I'll not be the happiest person on the block.

Today's mood is brought to you by...this. Hope you don't do others the way you've done me...but I probably can promise there is a 99.9% chance you will.

Adios...mother f-er. Hope that new "gpsl" really works out for ya...

when a comm looks super interesting... then one aspect of it puts you totally off of applying...

when another comm looks super interesting... then you notice 85% of the "writing" is on the 'network' rather than actual in actual threading scenes. mehhhhhhhhhhhhh.

In case anyone is wondering what taking an RP beef too far looks like, this is what I just woke up to.

Cut for image; contains sexist slurs and suicide mention. )

Good thing my boss is technologically inept and has me monitor his email.

[info]derezzed in [info]rpvents

That feeling when you really, really, really want to write, but things keep getting in the way. Things like lack of time, lack of muse, lack of comms to join, lack of characters you want to play in comms, lack of other players' interest in your fandoms, etc.

I can never seem to get the right timing down.

I realize your game has been around for a while, but maaaaaaaaaaybe don't advertise it weeks after the location was the site of a horrific massacre.

[info]fuckingbullshit in [info]rpvents

Being stalked and harassed from place to place to place is getting real fucking tiring.

[info]sucks2bewe in [info]rpvents

I feel like I'm constantly suffering blue balls here. I have lines hovering in limbo and its driving me nuts. I want so much to be included but its just not happening. So frustrated. :(

[info]051013 in [info]rpvents

What happened to all the people that started playing in RP for the sake of writing? Why doesn't anyone do this anymore? And the ones that do... WHERE ARE YOU????

[info]rubdown in [info]rpvents

wow. another game deleted due entirely to your drama? that has to be a record.

No more weird cannibal porn and people having to leave group chats early or drop characters because you're a creepy, aggressive, narcissistic, godmodding, whiny miasma of drama? However will we survive.

I was at work when they did the last round of accepting journals into the comms and missed the window, so now I'm sat here days later wondering if something went wrong and it didn't go through or if they're just being lazy.

It's killing my excitement to play, to sit here waiting so long... I was already accepted, just let me come in and intro my character PLEASE.

[info]puturarms in [info]rpvents

Why are people so rude? Maybe it's my age or the fact that I've had this hobby for far too long. Common courtesy goes a long way. But that seems to have been forgotten on this site. Instead it's filled with people who post and post and post looking for lines and even when multiple people trying filling the line, they get ignored...only to see them post a day later that they are looking for the same line.

Is it me? Jesus just tell me, I'll have more respect for that than just being a little shit.

I also don't understand why people plot for hours...forming excitement within somebody and then just not responding to important plot questions...for days...how long until I'm supposed to hold out hope for them? Do people secretly get off on knowing that they've helped create something only to know it's gone up in smoke?

Rp is a hobby...why am I so tired of it?

I drop a character because you, and the rest of the people who take their cues from you, refuse to thread with them when necessary for the plot and therefore leaving them to stagnate, instead spending all your time on your ship. You advertise for a replacement, which is fair, but then go on to list all the things they can do for your character instead of talking about, you know, who they are and their own plots. Whiiiich is pretty much the reason I left in the first place, that attitude.

The character is not a prop, a toy, something that exists merely to spur yours on. They're a fully fleshed out person that still exists when your precious (problematic af, btw) character closes their eyes.

And I hesitate to throw around the ableism word, but when you're interacting with a disabled character, you should be extra careful to allow them their agency, not make them exist merely to serve your own purposes. They're not a goddamned mascot.

[info]completeidiocy in [info]rpvents

You don't make an effort to make connections ic. You expect everyone to do the creative work for you. You constantly complain about everything ooc. You still wonder why no one wants to play with you?

[info]bigdickr in [info]rpvents

You know what? I can understand the current news clusterfuck upsetting people.

I can understand it spilling over to pb choices a little.

But I cannot understand it meaning you come to my pb journal which yes, is using a face of one of the people somewhat involved in some of the things coming out, and calling me a rape apologist, a misogynist, a betrayer to women and some other things I won't include here.

FFS I've played that character for over ten years! His face was chosen back then! Long before any of this came out. HIS FO IS THAT OLD! The date is right there.

Why not read before going into the riot act on an innocent RPer?

Also, fuck you.

[info]229922 in [info]rpvents

Wow, no. I go to your journal to see what you're into, and you have a several years deceased actor in your list of people you're interested in playing against. That's enough to put me off you for life. Given that a) you're advertizing now and b) have much more recent faces, an un-updated list is not likely as an excuse. I mean, I've got a few deceased faces on old journals that I tend to go into and remove or add a (pb only) parenthetical to depending on how long it's been and if I'm up for it. But this just puts me off so much.

Unrelated vent, why when he gets a slashy interest is it someone I can't see him with in a million years?

Seriously.

I have no idea where the RP community has gone; but, it seems like I've been left behind. I guess three years hiatus will do that to you?

It just sucks. All I want to do is play.

[info]didymus in [info]rpvents

It's so nice to see your SLP looking for your replacement without telling you they're done.
