She was positioned sitting down on the carpet with a book in her hand while the little boy next to her was coloring on a picture book on the floor. There was a comfortable silence surrounding the two until an opportune and random question popped into the child’s mind. “Hey Mom, what is a friend?” The woman’s immediate response was a cough. She placed a hand on her chest as she was struggling with a fit of...
Hi all, The site's been down for a few days this week. The short of it is that we've again experienced the same sort of issue as about a year ago, detailed here: News & Updates - It's a Bad Time for Computer Trouble This all started a few weeks ago but we were able to keep running with some periodic interruptions. It turned out that not only did we get data corruption on the server, but hardware components were causing crashes as well, so it has been a "fun" time of troubleshooting and trying to keep more data from being lost. Our server provider over the course of this few weeks has now replaced the power supplies, motherboard, and CPU on our server. I am hopeful the hardware is stable and the corruption has been dealt with as best...
Today, sometime in the evening CST, we will be bringing down the site for a bit while we run some tests on the server to diagnose and investigate the stability that has been happening over the last couple of weeks. We can't give an exact time due to schedules, I apologize for the short notice, since we like to give advance notice usually for any scheduled downtime.

Sleep is a state characterized by altered consciousness, inhibited sensory activity, and reduced muscle activity. It is beneficial to our physical and mental health as it's a way to re-charge our 'battery' and have energy for the new day. In the quiet moments between waking and dreaming, where reality...

In the realm of physics, Newton's law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another. For example, the Earth receives energy from the Sun, windmill blades harness energy from the wind, and objects like an apple on a table possess potential energy that can lead to kinetic energy, causing them to roll off the table. However, energy goes beyond the physical realm. It encompasses the...

Space encompasses unparalleled fascination, formidable awe, and intricate complexity. Whether defined as the three-dimensional plane we reside within or the vast expanse of the universe we call home, its allure never ceases to captivate us. Space abounds with adventure and fuels our imagination, seamlessly blending scientific marvels with a touch of magic. Since time immemorial, the stars have served as narrative catalysts...
You know, most of the time, when there's a server outage and the site goes down, it's due to some mundane thing like planned software updates or the typical datacenter fire. But this week, we had some rather annoying issues that really give fuel to the old System Admin adage: "Well, I've never seen that before." Monday started off with a classic server hang. Everything just went offline like the server had been unplugged. And, in a way, it was. And of course, it was my office day. Though I couldn't look into it until the evening, I was prepared for a scenario where something had gone Quite Wrong™. In reality, it hadn't. The server was simply not responding and needed a power cycle. It booted right back up without issue. Hours of...
Hey all, The time has finally come, for us iPhone users who use the site to get something we've never had on our phones, and that's Push Notifications. Apple has released this for iPhones (you'll need to update to ios 16.4+) and use the safari browser for this process. Go to the hamburger icon menu in the top left and look for the install the app button (you have to be using safari for this, this is an apple restriction). Bigger Screens (iPad): If you can't see the hamburger menu due to a larger screen like an iPad, the instructions are the same.

Well my, my, my is that the sound of a clock? And what can a clock tell us? Time. Time, an old concept that continues to dictate many lives to this day. It helps to measure the longevity of an idea, object, or action. Time is said to help heal wounds. Time is said to standardize work days. Time is said to establish continuous movement of life. With this universal measurement, we see seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, and years pass. And within all those measurable moments, insurmountable experiences happening all at once. We are all...
Hey All, One of the site's most popular and yet inconsistent features is the fact that when someone replies to something, the post comes in a few seconds later without having to refresh the page. This feature is powered by an old plugin that we've been looking at replacing for a long time now, and we've finally succeeded. Replies to threads should be in real time currently now, as we've swapped to a new real-time system that handles it for us. As part of this update, the following has appeared: You'll be able to see when someone is typing in real time at the bottom of the thread. This update also comes with real-time alerts.

But what exactly does it mean? When it comes to the beauty inside of us, appearances can be particularly deceptive. Both the words we tell ourselves and the reflections we see in the mirror are misleading. I challenge everyone of us to take a quick look in the mirror and ask, "What do I see?" Do you ever find yourself looking for bad things? What if we began to value them by replacing those self-doubting phrases with "I...
Hello everyone! As we mentioned a little bit ago in a site-wide alert, we've recently updated the RpN rules. In general, most of the changes are just rewordings meant to help users better understand what the rules are and what they mean. However, many people have asked for a list of specific changes, so here's a changelog to sum up. Introduction/Mission Statement - Adding this was one of the main changes. The purpose is not just to give a bit of info about us, but also to explain the purpose of the rules, and explain that users are expected to behave in accordance with the spirit as well as the letter of the rules. We wanted to make it clear that users who deliberately skirt the rules but are still displaying toxic behavior will still...
━━━━ 𝘏𝘌𝘈𝘋𝘌𝘙 𝘐𝘔𝘈𝘎𝘌 ━━━━ ━━━━ 𝘐𝘕𝘛𝘙𝘖𝘋𝘜𝘊𝘛𝘐𝘖𝘕 ━━━━ Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never. In nothing, great or small, large or petty. Never give in. —Winston Churchill What is determination? The part of us that rises against the rage of the machine, an unyielding force that shines brightest in the dark. Determination is what allows us achieve our goals and overcome our challenges. A powerful resolve that makes us willing to take risks, to push ourselves to our limits, and to stand up for what we believe in, even in the face of opposition. Most importantly, determination gives us the strength kind to ourselves and to others. Determination is not just about achieving our own goals, but about lifting others up...

An opportunity. Can it be from luck? Or was it due to chance? Well, everyday we are all faced with various situations whether they are challenging or simple. How we decide to approach them can bring about many outcomes. From there we can either take it as an opportunity for something to come out of it. Some may simply not have to acknowledge the opportunities they were presented and ride along with what they feel is luck but as Seneca said, this may just be them being prepared for those opportunities. So if a chance...

Milne As 2023 makes its mark, new hopes, goals, and resolutions are shared. They can be tangible at times, but more often than not, they are actions and changes within ourselves. Kindness. Life is full of stumbling blocks without an instruction manual. Some days will be better than others. Kindness spreads from one person to the next by surrounding ourselves with good deeds, generosity, and upbeat attitudes. We are social beings, and we have our love language. It includes words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, and more. How do you spread kindness? Is it donating...
If you are here, this means you have clicked on the alert to find out more about the rule update specifically for Omegaverse/ABO. We have officially forbidden this genre from RpNation; This decision wasn't made hastily and we want to be clear that we are forbidding this genre because at its core and focus it is an erotic genre. We know there are those who are interested in the social dynamics of this genre, but the problem is that we cannot clearly determine between someone using the term sexually or non-sexually. If you have any suggestions for what a non-sexual Omegaverse term could be let us know. Create your own new genre! We want to work with you to keep our users and site safe! EDIT: You are more than welcome to continue...
━━━━ 𝘏𝘌𝘈𝘋𝘌𝘙 𝘐𝘔𝘈𝘎𝘌 ━━━━ ━━━━ 𝘐𝘕𝘛𝘙𝘖𝘋𝘜𝘊𝘛𝘐𝘖𝘕 ━━━━ The Moon and the Rabbit have long been prominent figures in the storytelling traditions of various cultures around the world. In East Asian folklore, for example, the Chinese story of Chang'e, the Korean celebration of Chuseok, and the Japanese tradition of Tsukimi all feature the Moon and Rabbit prominently. Indigenous Native American traditions also connect the Moon and Rabbit. These stories, which are often as beautiful as the Moon itself, are often inspired by the rabbit-shaped outline on the lunar surface and center on themes of mystery and love. One of the reasons the Moon and Rabbit have such enduring appeal is the rich symbolism and meaning that each holds individually, and the...
