|Tips are much appreciated~^^|
A valuable meme for any role-player!
Come display your comfort levels so your role-play partners are aware of what they can do, and of what they should avoid! A healthy relationship between role-play partners is the key to a good time!
While this meme shows the basics, please remember to communicate with your role-play partners!
= Yay / Preferred
= Nay / Nyope
= Depends on the circumstances (explanation follows)
I am comfortable doing:
Comment : If it's playful banter cause it's your character's reaction to the thing in the pic, sure! If it's an actual rp, please don't cause if you haven’t noticed it gets really squished comments on the page and I get annoyed when I see that.
Chats : Totally fine with this. Though I am scattered busy as of recent so I usually drop in for planned ones only since it was noted before hand.
Notes : Sure, though it's been a long time since I had rp notes anymore lol
Forum : Never rped in a forum before but Im pretty sure it's like notes. So I'm fine with it too.
Skype : Absolutely, even more than chat cause this one BEEPS.*SNORTS*
Google Docs : Same as forums, never did it but pretty sure it's like notes.
I am comfortable with:
One on one role plays : Go for it! It might be a little short if it’s just a meet and greet rp though since there’s nothing much to do and the characters don't know each other yet, a planed plot one would be useful if it was like that.
Up to three people : Narly size for a nice rp!
Up to four people : Still Narly!
Five or more people : Still okay, will be a little confused sometimes if it’s more than five so it’s best if you just ping me if your post has something to do with my characters.
As big as possible: Usually these types of rps are ball/party rps and would end up breaking into any of the above rps anyway cause natural rule of grouping, so if it’s like that okay *shrugs* If you’re talking about a boss battle rp where everyone's posts count, count me out LOL I can’t read all that.
RP Style : (Taken from Kipyo)
I am comfortable with:
Lit: 8D I love this, *breaks glass* another
Script: I love this too, though of course if it’s a drama rp full of character dev I don’t think just a short “Suddenly she realized she missed him.” would cut it for the feels, pacing you know lol.
Post Length :
I usually write about:
One or two sentences: Like I said in script above. For small joke banter or light rp sure cause it's fun like that, but for drama rps, I'll give you more than just one tiny sentence LOL
One or two paragraphs: This is what I usually do! (PS: I'm thinking of decently sized paragraphs of more or less 1/3 of a page)
Two to five paragraphs: If I have more than one character or if I'm controlling a magnificent AoE boss or setting.
More than five paragraphs: Same as above and depends on how many people I'm replying to.
A few pages worth: I don't think I have ever typed a few pages worth in an RP. But I guess since I write stuff on my own outside I can do this under the right situation lol
I am comfortable role-playing with people who write:
One or two sentences: Same as my feelings about one liners above XD
One or two paragraphs:
Two to five paragraphs:
More than five paragraphs:
Role-play Requests :
I like getting requests from:
Anyone and everyone at any time! Only from people of the RP groups Im in, why? Cause quality control huehuh!
When I ask for role-plays. This, though as of recent I'm busy enough to be selective to only ask roleplay stuff with couch pizza buddies cause I know we mesh well.
From friends and acquaintances. Go ahead! But please note it's not your fault if I turn it down if it's an rp that came up suddenly, blame my life schedule.
From friends only. Does this even need to be here, just bury me with your requests already.
Corrections : (Taken from Kipyo)
I'm comfortable in being corrected when:
I missed something in your/someone else's post: Please do this, my brain isn't word savy and I don't score 100% on my English tests.
I missed something about your/someone else's character: Just do it omg.
Whether (....) is realistic/factual: I have a talking walking armor man who's soul is stuck in a sword, you can see the amount of ducks I give to realism. But yes and no, yes when I stab something in the wrong place and apparently it's fatal in RL or in your race info or if this flower doesn't grow in this season, please correct me cause I am not a doctor/scientist/biologist/botanist etc. If you are trying to 'fix' they way my magic works though, please don't lol. My magic is my magic. XDD
Expectations : (Taken from Kiypo too)
I expect my RP partner to:
Have read my character app before we RP:
NOT read my character app at all before we RP:
Read as much of my character app as is reasonable to go on before we RP:
Eh as long as you know how my character looks like, how tall they are and what powers do what, I'm pretty chill do what you will. I do kinda enjoy when someone brings something my character is allergic to and cause them to swell up hilariously all because they didn't know.
The only exception is that if we agreed if your character is supposedly close buds with mine from the get go without rp, I would think reading is a compulsory thing don't ya think? LOL
** Important: Communication is the key to a real life relationship, it shouldn't be abandoned for a fictional one either! Be sure to talk to your partners when considering romance!
I am comfortable shipping my characters:
Our character know each other deeply.
Our character know each other deeply, and I know I can trust the role-player.At the first sign of flirting!
Only if the role-player and I plan it.
It depends on the character.
By default, I only ship with buddies cause by the time anything like a ship even would cross my mind, we would have been rping for quite an amount of time before or have known each other through net/in person for longggg. Also I have a number of flirty characters, and I don't think that everyone who flirts is asking to be shipped. There is the character trope called 'the playboy' you know.
If you want to ship with my characters:
Talk to me about it from the start.
Talk to me about it once our characters know each other.
Talk to me about it once they both have some feelings for each other.
Talk to me about it when they finally decide that want to go beyond hugging.
Two words: Character dev. My characters aren't on a tinder page LOL you can't just go swipe go on them once you see their pic on your phone.
If you think they have some chemistry going on, go ahead and ask me about it. Cause I will take forever to say "You know, they feel like a ship *wink wink blink*" Even if I feel like it can work lol
When shipping my characters, I like the romance to happen:
Swift as lightening!
Fast, but not super fast.
Happens in about three months.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Slugs know what's up!
My relationships know no speed. They happen if they happen.
Again, character dev, it happens when it happens. And when it does it will be fluffy.
When my characters gets intimate, I prefer:
To skip the act entirely.
To write the build up, but skip the act.
To write the act only if it is very special, but otherwise skip it.
To write the act all the way through.
|D Idk how to write smut lol, so I don't cause I get the feeling it would sound as bad as that 50 shades of grey book people laugh at. But doesn't mean I'm uncomfortable with it if my rp partner can write it.
Romantic Artwork :
When it comes to artwork depicting our relationship please:
Do not post it at all without talking to me.
Post it if it is cuddles and hugs.
Post it if it is kisses.
Post it if it is much more. (Unless idk who you are, which means it can't be helped)
Do not post it at all if it depicts sexual acts! (Unless idk who you are, which means it can't be helped)
Do not post it where I can see it, but draw what you like!
If our characters are already in a relationship, post as many cuddly pics as you want I don't care and I like when surprises like that turn up in my inbox. For NSFW I would very much like you to show it to me first in PM LOL
Also as a comic artist, there is no escaping from the rule of 34, if it's out there, there will be porn of it. I would actually be amused one day if I find my characters in different levels of undress drawn by someone idk who is it and it's out of my knowlage.
But for RP etiquette sake, if you are currently in the same rp group as someone but never talked to them, just don't self ship your characters with the other *SNORTS*
** Important: Always be sure to communicate with your partner individually if you think you are about to go outside their comfort zones even just the slightest bit!!
When it comes to violent situations, I am comfortable with:
No violence at all!
I'm fine with verbal arguments!
Some violence, like a paper cut, or an accidental elbow to the face.
Mild violence, such as punching, kicking, hair pulling.
Violence, such as stabbings.
Beyond violence, such as torture and more.
VIOLENCEEEEEE! EXPLOSUNSSSSS! MASS DESTRUCTION! But no grapes please. |D
If you are going to do something violent, please:
Don't do it at all.
Talk to me about it first.
As long as no one on my side is dying and permanently crippled unless I wanted them to be. Go wildddd!
Dramatic Artwork :
Do not post any dramatic scenes that happened between our characters.
Talk to me about it before posting!
Post what you like!
I like surprises of art of stuff that happened or symbolically happened or just legit between our characters, do as you will buds, I trust you. 8D
Physical Contact : (Taken from Kipyo)
I'm cool with my characters being touched if:
Formalities / Ordinary gestures / Something that usually happens (such as hand shakes)
Nothing dramatic (sexual / violent / inappropriate)
As always no grapes or anything like that.
If my kid dislikes/hates yours, that doesn't mean I hate you, too! 8'D Why would I hate the player if my character is a boob to theirs. It's part of the fun. 8'D Unless the player did something bad themselves, their characters and them are different entities and not to be mixed up.
