Best bit is when I turn down a character's shit attempt to get into a relationship with mine and in the OOC/PMs they act all snarky.. mentioning "This is a romance RP... so there should be romance.. *huff* *huff*"

Not today Sunshine, this one ain't falling for just anyone ;)

Nothing more annoying than someone trying to rush the possible romance without first seeing if characters have anything in common or even develop some kind of chemistry but oh no the sixth post is the keeper. That's when all the romance should happen. Good grief.

Edit.
That and the person behind the character taking offense to it if it doesn't happen in the blink of an eye.

It's okay, I can't read either

This is why I like you @Setsuna ;)

Whenever this happens in a RP, I always think back to a child-hood experiement. They offer a little kid a sweet but say if the child is willing to wait 10 minutes then they'll recieve two sweets instead. It's a lesson of patience as relationships rarely spark straight away and rushing into something tends to put people (including myself) off entirely. :P

A fantastic relationship that pulls my interest is one that builds up, starts off as just co-members of the group, get to know each other a little better over time, become friends once they 'click' after a few weeks or so, *insert serious event where they need to work with and trust one-another to over-come whatever comes their way*, the relationship continues to build to the point where each partner knows the other very personally, build, build and build before finally... more bui-.. just kidding, they may finally realize that they had genuine feelings for the other and they'd rather be with them.

Just my thoughts, I love seeing relationships grow from small beginnings to a level of trust that makes the heart flutter. I struggle with trust in the real world, i've betrayed others and have been betrayed myself. It's an amazing learning experience for someone that has Aspergers and doesn't understand other people's feelings sometimes. It's easy to get into a relationship but for me at least, it's difficult to actually fall in love with someone / get to the levels of trust that I feel genuinely comfortable around them.

I completely agree with you, Hengleford. Nice to see someone else sharing in the love of building up a genuine relationship.

This definitely turns me away, which is probably weird of me considering that I'm pretty comfortable RPing male characters, so I'd be okay with RPing a male while my RP partner plays a female. And yet... whenever someone says something akin to "I only like to RP females, but I guess I can double up and RP a male if you absolutely want to RP a female too..." It just comes across to me as really reluctant and lazy. I'm definitely guilty of saying the exact opposite (things like "I prefer to RP male characters but can try to RP a female") so I guess I'm not one to talk. But at least I feel like I'm the type who would do my best to give equal attention to all my characters regardless.
I'm the same way. Most of the time I've worked on improving my males and they're pretty much my bread and butter but I do enjoy playing females.

idk but let’s not take our chances
i believe we shouldn’t anger people with peeves for the sake of it
Are you talking to me? Because I was asking out of genuine curiosity. I know some people have stricter rules for text in the roleplay itself than they do in OOC.

Which I mean if it is a readability thing that’s fine. I can’t take random capitalization. It drives me up a wall and makes it hard for me to read.

In the roleplay but it also bothers me out of the roleplay. I try to not yell at people.

They randomly capitalized words as a joke because you said you didn't like it.
Ah right that went over my head. I should have specified I don't like it in the roleplay. It doesn't bother me as much in OOC.

At this point I've becoming annoyingly picky with my search threads, so please don't take offense if you happen to do one of these. (I'm also not really looking to debate 'bout it, y'know?)

1. When someone says convince me. So you have an inkling of a plot, and you're not realllly sure if you wanna do it or not, so you tell your partner to convince you. Why should they convince you to do it? They already know you aren't terribly enthusiastic about it, and no one really wants to nag and push someone they don't really know into doing something. I feel like at times it's a lazy way to just include 'something else unique' in your search thread without really doing anything. Like listen, man. If you don't wanna do something, or you're only looking to do specific things, just state that. It's less of a headache and you're more likely to get someone.

2. How many search threads they already have. I get revamping search threads, and starting over. You get old people to look again at what's new, and collectively everything probably looks or sounds better because you've reworked it. But if I see like...ten of the same search thread in rapid succession to each other because you aren't having luck with one of them, it gives me the sense of being impatient. I know it's super annoying to try and get partners, everyone is different. But please, just bump the one thread in moderation and stop making so many. It clogs it up, and it might just deter people.

3. Certain attitudes, and I'm not even talk rude ones. I've come to notice there are just certain people on here, while absolutely a blast OOC and genuinely good and nice people, tend to be very flaky. I've come to pick up the language they use, and how their posts are structured. I'll be friends with you OOC, but unfortunately I've come to learn how certain people are when it comes to RPs.

4. People who aren't honest about their wants, or feel they have to do a certain thing to fit in. Girl, if you only wanna play a girl, own it! I know there's a ton of people on here who are the same, but you'll find someone who wants to RP with you and your OCs, don't worry. Just be polite about it, and state your preferences clearly. Don't feel the urge to double if you really don't want to, because you're not gonna give it your best. RPing is about enjoying what you write, and what you receive. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't knock on people for only playing.

1. Females
2. Males
3. Nonbinaries
4. M/M,F/F, or M/F when it comes to romance.

I know it's annoying to see such thing because it crosses out potential partners, but c'mon. You wanna enjoy what you write, and they wanna enjoy it too. I don't want to take it away from anyone, and I don't want to force someone to double if they don't want to.

5. Idk if this counts because it applies to people contacting me, but... Please man, if I say PM me, just PM me. I don't bite, and I don't want the comments cluttered up on my thread. I've come to realize people who comment don't even tend to want to RP, and it just kinda gets my hopes up. If I get a PM, I at least known someone is definitely interested. (Also, if you're gonna PM me, please be clear. What plot you wanna do, come in possibly with an offer to show off some writing if you normally RP in PMs, and just be nice and shit.)

6. Fandoms, but specifically only if they want canonxoc.
I know this is def a personally preference, but I just can't get into the mindset of being the fantasy for you. Let's both be OCs, and exist in a universe and create our own stories! Sometimes, hey, people wanna be the canon character actually. I won't knock it, but at least understand why I'm not too interested.


I can't really think of anything else, I'm pretty clear with my stuff in my own search threads I like to think, so I know what I'm looking for. These are more the 'nope, you might have something I like but I'm out,' instead of 'Oh, we just don't match!"

@Brookflower so to be clear you don’t like fandom roleplays period or you don’t like canonxoc roleplays specifically?

As you can definately do fandom roleplays using OC characters or even an AU of the original where your just borrowing the basic idea but making something new.

I tend to agree on the Canon x OC front because fandoms are like art. Everyone is going to have their own interpretation of the source material that influences their personal pairings.

Plus they run into the same problems as regular pairings in that it’s really hard to the two characters with good chemistry, especially if you interpret the canon differently than your partner did.
