Please don't tell me "silent starter" is going to be a new trend on IJ because I don't like it.

This isn't really a vent so much as me just not understanding.

I don't understand customs. I've role-played in small circles for 10+ years now and I've never been in a position where customs takes up most of the game. Most places I have been do a whole lot of threading either in GDOCS or on the community site... Threading in customs? Why? Someone help?

...maybe I am getting too old for this.

Not an exact copy/paste of our game, but you could've tried doing something creatively different. Just glad you're happy and continuing to play. I hope the new place puts up better with your monosyllabic responses on your own characters' entries and tags that only come every other week, if they come at all.

When your enjoying your lines and role-play and something just completely takes the legs out from under you.

Creative High, meet what feels like rock bottom.

Its silly because its just a hobby, but that doesn't make it hurt any less.

Guess they see me the same way I see myself.

When you miss a character so darn much and hate that he never got a chance to really shine because he got jerked around in every line you managed to get for him, and lost his muse because the last time he got screwed was just too much for you even when there might have been a faint light of a good line in the distance and you just couldn't bring yourself to play him anymore.

Nostalgia is sometimes the worst. *kicks self*

[info]unbreakable_ in [info]rpvents

think this sums it up pretty accurately.

You know, I don't think it's at all too much to expect that if you're interested in possibly joining a comm, checking to be sure the character or celeb type you play is eligible there.

When you pick up a new line and it seems to be going good then there is a week of silence. And yes, I see you over there picking up new lines with no response to me.

jealousy over characters = worst thing because it is absolutely unreasonable as fuck and it can put me off playing with a character entirely sometimes? the ship isn't even canon (it's just accepted as such by the entire fandom) but i still hate it :(

i know they can do whatever they want and it's honestly fine by me! the muse in my head just hates seeing their person with another person i guess?

It's a strange moment, but it's here. Going back, deleting old accounts, and realising that you'll never rp again.

It's been over two years since I've had anything close to a mutally-enjoyable line, and since writing what I want to write, with characters I love, isn't an option, and writing what a partner wants to write, without input of my own, makes me feel like I'm not even valued as a human.

And yet as I tidy up my internet footprints, I'm sitting here crying.

When one of your characters wants to get all excited about a post on their friends page, make sure that it is dated after the post in question. It's already bad enough that you/your friends all post/comment at the same time, as if you were one person, but it's just laughable to read my friends feed and see things in the wrong order. LOL

You used to be able to find games that were like, "there's a massive apartment building in [City], all the characters in game live in it", modern day slice of life type things. Do people still do them anymore?

I fear I may have gotten really picky about the kind of game I want to play in. I'm looking for slice of life.

* I don't really want to play supernatural anymore (I'm in one which I'm really liking but I'm looking for something more... mundane? No, that sounds negative. I just want some normal).
* I'm not suuuper into the html craze that seems to have hit RP—I can do it, I just would rather write something more substantial.
* I've tried panfandom but they always feel too big and too unwieldy and I've never truly been comfortable in one.

I'm not the kind of person who would necessarily plot out a romance, but I would like the potentiality for my character to fall in love, organically, with a character written by someone who wants to write them and who won't drop out after a couple of weeks.

Anyway, I'm moaning because I'm picky and I haven't been able to find a game that I could do that sort of thing in lol. So I guess the point of this post is, if you're out there and you're modding or playing in a game like this... can you please tell me? I just want to play :(

i'm so glad that someone out there consistently understands that when people open an ad comm, the one thing they really want to see is multiple spam posts in the biggest letters possible, preferably in bright red. please actually open that comm so that all of us can flock to it and subject ourselves to your bullshit willingly.

Sometimes you just can't make everyone happy in a line, and that is one of the hardest things for me to accept.

[info]souldevoured in [info]rpvents

tfw you want to vent about absurd bullshit but you know that they check rp and are looking for an excuse to continue starting shit.

Finally find someone to rp with the one character I've been jonesing for and then find out they "fade to black" when it comes to sexytimes. FML!
