Anonymous asked: So, I'm a bigger RP(five people), and it's post-by-post. One of the RPers often forgets to reply to my posts. I wouldn't care, if it weren't for the fact our characters are in a relationship. I bump my posts often, and they will respond for awhile, the forget me when someone else post. I feel pushy and annoying when I bump my posts, but I'm really interested in the...

neonalbatross asked: for your poll: I have two RP blogs as total separate entities from my main, I find this way easier because it can have its own personal dashboard of other RP blogs and not crowd out posts by the non-RP blogs I follow, it also makes it easier to reply to Asks to the RP blog. It's free to get a custom hotmail email for your blog, too, so that's always a plus. Side accounts are better...

Hey guys! I know I said I would try not to vanish again like last time, but lo and behold… my bad.

However, roleplaying has always made me feel better when I was...

six-legged asked: a good thing to remember about paranoia is that the psychiatric community defines two different types of it, 'poor me' and 'bad me'. pm patients believe their prosecution is undeserved and unfair, whereas bm patients believe that they did something to deserve it. understandably, bm patients are often depressed and suffer from much lower self-esteem than pm patients. a little...

pseudolias asked: I RP frequently, but one thing I feel often in the need for is things to actually DO in-character. This isn't the case the majority of the time, but often enough that it's annoying.
