    Roleplay Pet Peeves

    I think its okay to discuss how to handle the peeves Peeve: People who write things but with no idea why in terms of the story and write themselves into a corner. It probably makes sense for their charcter just fine, but leaves nowhere to go.

    Roleplay Pet Peeves

    @The Swedish Chef @jinkx I was two-thirds the way through saying that. Also, how on earth do I insert multi-quotes in the new editor?
