God Why, RP
God Why, RP

Because sometimes it hurts to be a literary fascist.

I love going through this blog, and GARP, honestly. I'm pretty much an elitist when it comes to rping, even though I'm sure my very first would have made it onto this blog, if it had ever been public. Me and my friend basically took the plot straight from the Bible itself, without even realizing it. (we were ten/eleven.) The only difference is that the main demi-god's right-hand didn't become "satan". There was already a preexisting devil creature. It was actually a good rp, initial plot aside.

Sometimes those kinds of RPs can be super fun even if they’re basically ripped off from something else. While originality is great and all, it’s be silly to expect every RP to be some kind of bastion of creativity.

Lately I’ve been making characters who are a little uncreative on purpose just because it’s pretty fun to do and it’s totally shameless indulgence lol

Somehow I'm a magnet to these three roleplayers who have a similar typing and script style. Despite me not being a "script" fan myself, I thought I'd be nice to the partners by playing the way they did it. Unfortunately, they seem to have a similar wish: For me to be their character's love interest. Sometimes they even control the character they wanted me to play that I feel like I'm just a plaything for their own mary sue characters. I also have a problem of not saying 'no'.

In most cases I advocate just saying no, but in this case you might want to also try and nudge these people into RPing differently, like in paragraph style and with less focus on cutesy fluff. Sometimes it takes a little bit of shoving.

I rp with one person, and i rarely ever do group rp's. My friend who rp's tries to get me to do group rp's, as well as sexual ones. I don't feel comfortable doing either (for reasons I will not disclose). What should I do?

Tell your friend you don’t feel comfortable doing it. If they’re your friend, then they should understand.

A friend and I used to RP a lot over texting. By a lot, I mean thousands of messages a month. Eventually it all abruptly stopped and for the past five years I've been asking once every few months or so with his answer always being along the lines of "maybe later". This ticks me off especially because he's RPed (and might still be) with other people during the times I'd asked. I know he's my friend, but should I even try anymore?

Sometimes things can happen where people just don’t feel like RPing all that much anymore. It sucks a lot to be on the other side of, but maybe you could ask your friend if something’s going on and if it’s something you can help with, otherwise the only thing you can do is be patient, even if five years is kind of uuuuh a long time.

Hi! This is in response to your post number 66584456350 (also called "a thing or a few things the winde me up"). I would like to know what universe the submitter comes from where an 8 inch penis is average, because I would like to move there immediately. The average penis here is actually more in the 5-6 inch range, with 6 being kind of high. If I could find a place where 8 is the norm, that'd be awesome. Oh also, keep up the good work on your blog!

Howdy! I'm curious, is it bad that I can't seem to keep a muse? Like I had a great thread going, but I just lost steam with the character I was playing... So I switched, and when I lost steam on that one and so on. Am I just not meant for the RP game? Or, at least, the big game RPs?

I think this is fairly common, actually. I’ve only been in one or two RPs that haven’t crapped out basically immediately due to participants losing interest and not saying anything about it. It’s fine if you’re just not feeling it anymore but the courteous thing to do is let everyone else in the RP know, not that I’m insinuating you don’t from this ask or anything I’m just typing what I’m thinking right now. words.

I think it’s mostly just a matter of finding the right RP, the right people, the right characters who will keep you engrossed for more than a page or two. It can take multiple attempts for something to really click and from my experience this is just a part of writing/role-playing.

Worst RP Experience personally: When the Creator of the OC you're rping with knows something dark and foreboding about your character and USES IT IN THE RP AS COMMON INFORMATION WHEN THEIR OC WOULD HAVE NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF IT WHATSOEVER?! I HAAAAAAAAAAAATE THIS WITH A PASSION AND IT HAPPENS WAY TOO OFTEN.

I’ve RPed at places that have rules against “metagaming” like this because it’s illogical and frustrating. I don’t get why people do it in the first place because besides making no sense, it’s a lot more fun for your characters to find these things out through the natural progression of a story instead of just knowing for no reason.

Have you ever been on a site called F-list?

We’ve heard of it, but as for actually getting on it and doing things there I can’t say either of us have nor are we interested in the sort of RP that goes on there.

I’ve mostly just heard about it through other people and it just… really doesn’t seem like my sort of thing. I can respect that it exists well enough, but I don’t think it’s a site I could see myself on.

I always ran into people wanting to RP just to get in bed. I've sadly accepted that as a part of RPing and just look out for the signs and try to avoid it the best I can. BUT. a while back I decided to make a character based on the game 'Journey.' Basically they are made of cloth, child sized... and cute. People still try to get it in bed. When I try to point out that's honestly creepy I get yelled at. What should I say/do. I really like this character and the creeps are just ruining it

If some people are so thirsty that they have their characters try to get into the pants of other characters who are not intended for any sort of smut at all, then they have serious issues with boundaries and what’s appropriate.¬†

I think the best you can do is just be like “hey whoa, I don’t intend to do any smut with this character and I’d appreciate it if you stopped” when this starts to happen. If they flip a pancake about it then you probably don’t want to be playing that character with them anyway. It’s pretty rude and honestly a little gross to get indignant about somebody who doesn’t want to type out sexy-times with a certain character.

 SJWs in the tumblr RP world. *sighs*

Putting this post on the RP snark blog because it’s horrifying, what the hell.

I never think about these types of people making their way into things like RP communities because I’ve already been put off RP in general, almost for good. I just feel like I don’t fit in with the way people do RP anymore, and there is no way in hell I’d put up with any sort of “everyone’s queer lol let’s fetishize peoples’ sexualities” and “murder because boys are gross” type bullshit.
