  • People have asked me about joining DND things before and I just sit here like, "Do I look like someone who does that kind of thing?"

    There's a number of reasons why the answer should be "No".

    - Most DND campaigns don't ever finish cause people stop showing up after the 2nd or so session according to many DND players that I see commenting on the occasional DND content I see from time to time. And my own preference in my RP ads makes it clear I don't like that kind of attendance or people ghosting.

    - Dice Rolls. Yeah not much my thing, I prefer being able to write my character to be capable of what I designed them to be. I didn't create a fumbling fool. And sure I didn't write a god either but she's not about to "roll a Nat 1 and die horribly to some literal who creature" in a fight. She's good at like 5 things and otherwise pretty much incompetent at much else. And unfortunately, fighting is one of those things she's REALLY good at which means dice rolls don't interest me. I'd probably have to be some kind of co-DM that has her as more of an NPC character that is mostly there for interactions and stuff and rarely does the fighting unless the main DM says to.

    - Then there's just this;

    So it's my birthday but since I'm not some kind of greedy mongoloid I haven't made friends that solely have money or art talent. So today's no doubt NOT going to be any different from any other uneventful day of the year.

    Rained today on my Birthday. I suppose at least nature knows what I want from it. Rain vibes is the good shit for me.
    People who make an idea out into something weird/outlandish when it has no such components need to seek mental help. Stop projecting your own weird thoughts/vibes about things onto my ideas that don't involve them at all, y'clown.

    The kind of shit that people randomly dip out of an approach over is just irritatingly stupid at this point. I am bringing up something that is IN MY AD that you read before approaching me and you randomly leave the conversation without a word when I bring it up in the planning phase of things as if you didn't KNOW that was one of the things I wanted to do. Do people even READ anyone's ENTIRE fucking ad anymore??

    And even then, just say NO and ask/propose an ALTERNATIVE IDEA. What is this fucking generation coming to where they're so spineless they can't just talk things out for both parties to be satisfied or at least TRY to until all options are exhausted before backing out? They would rather just give up and go back to sifting through a list for a month or longer again cause being more persistent is too hard for these worms.

    Getting real tired of every Genshin ad being either Yaoi stuff or someone wanting to pair their basic deviantart OC with one of the Genshin guys like some kind of obsessed schoolgirl would....

    After all, we ALL know what kind of things YAOI leads to since they straight up have no grasp on any other aspect of "Romance" apart from the carnal or borderline carnal rather than anything actually emotional and fluffy. I have never ONCE run into people who CAN be different from "characters get into compromising position and either it ALMOST gets 'carnal' or it just DOES" and I doubt ANYONE here is an exception. Or-- y'know-- it's poorly written to the point of cringeworthy.

    As for people's OCs with canons....there's a reason why most people who DO write as canons cause they like to don't WANT to write a canon with an OC outside of doubling to ALSO get something out of it.

    "85% of humanity is shallow and/or scummy garbage."

    "That's toxic."

    No it ain't. It's facts. Humanity's an awful thing. People lie, cheat, steal, kill. They commit horrible acts against their fellow people. They commit horrible atrocities in the name of made-up sky people or just for their own benefit and greed. They trample over each other without a second thought, put each other down for the pettiest of reasons because "for someone else to win/rise, someone else has to lose/fall". Humanity is shitty and anyone who comes at me saying otherwise is naive and has the wool pulled neatly over their eyes.

    Clearly it depends on what the bad things are and if the good things outweigh them enough.

    That's fair. I suppose there's a big disparity between "help with disaster relief" and "start a land war in Asia" (one of the classic blunders!) for example.

    Kind of makes me question my own morality but I think I'm fine. Then again, so do most people even if they're not. God I hate... what is this, existentialism? I don't know.

    As long as it doesn't trample on, inconvenience or outright harm GOOD PEOPLE. I'd say it's fine.

    Unless it's particular fandoms and other cringe, unacceptable things but I am not going to open up that can of worms.
    So to reprise on how I said before a long while ago that other sites are worse than this for finding RP. I'd say it's EQUALLY bad at this point if you're not some normie obsessed with western media and aren't just taking ALL COMERS, you'll hardly find anything. Standards no matter how lax are a bane of people's existence in the current year.
    Bruh why the f- is it all people wanna do when it comes to same gender stuff is Yaoi? I don't see the appeal since it all just comes down to acting like animals in heat with no COMPETENT romance bits whatsoever-- at most all you get is Deviantart-esque stuff from it from most people. Where the yuri people at??

    In all my 13 years of RPing I have not encountered a single yaoi player capable of actual character development, chemistry and actually romantic bits. It's nothing but "compromising positions" and instigating the characters acting like animals in heat. Basically deviantart level nonsense. Yaoi players only know how to instigate Lust in the characters and have little to no aptitude for anything else. Not to mention it only seems to appeal to Tumblr/Reddit teens to begin with, which explains a lot of what I've said.

    honestly i can't even argue with that: the problem w lgbtq+ representation in anime/manga is that it's targeted towards a heterosexual audience and caters to their fantasies. ppl who want to rp "yaoi" or "yuri" only know these shit caricatures and stereotypes and try to recreate them in writing :/

    I've had better luck getting actual romance out of yuri people than hetero or yaoi ones. Even if it still included a bit of 'heated' moments or just softcore ecchi in general they still at least were capable of actual romance bits too. Can't say the same for yaoi or heteros I've worked with. But what you said is indeed the problem with the yaoi ones.
    To clarify, the issue with other sites is all people want to do is ERP or they're MASSIVELY illiterate or both. Don't get me wrong, RPN is still kinda bad to a degree when there's stuff like "Harry Potter Yaoi" being looked for but this place is still better than those other places you can choose from by a long shot.

    Also ERP is banned here so anyone looking for "Harry Potter Yaoi" on here should be reported.

    Harrry Potter Yaoi was a thing? To me, saying it that seems like it’s odd, but doing it must feel very graphic.
    Right so I've been gone, trying to see if other sites give better results. Let me tell you right now; They don't. You may as well just stay here if I am entirely honest.
    People say character development matters but just drop me the moment I tell them they can't asspull a canon into being stronger than they actually are without an arc first. Ugh.
    So Youtube recommends a Persona video at me, I watch it and it's basically Pokemon. How do people find that fun to write? Pretty much just giving stuff orders??? That sounds so damn boring to write.
    Some people have no idea what they're talking about. Or maybe a lot of people don't. Who knows, who cares. It's all too fargone to actually fix now anyway.
    Sort of just here since other places have been a let-down and a friend suggested it for whatever reason. Might put up a proper profile layout....eventually...
