RP Comfort MemeA 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!
This pretty lady tagged me on this amazing meme *O*
Role Play Basics
LocationsI am comfortable doing:
(I'm usually on everyday for a pretty good amount of time to rp. Chats are the best option because I can focus my attention to post consecutively after your posts, and the rp will find itself an ending point instead of halting in limbo.)
(I have my exceptions, but it's weird to rp in here. Only with people I super super love. e__eb)
(For more casual rps- because the skype box is a little inconvenient for me to type in, plus what is formatting in skype. Tildes ~ are an important part of my characters' speech, and even with the @@ placed in front of the message, the formatting still gets wonky -verydisturbedplz-)
✔ Google Docs
(Plz only for rps that are more serious/longer in length that require more than a few hours time, and with people I really really trust. I tend to devote a lot of my time trying to form replies, and it feels out of place for casual rps that can be taken to chat and not have to be backlogged. I'm also already swamped with a bunch of backlogs, so unless I really really want to continue in docs, I prefer to finish an rp that same day or continue in chat another time where my attention will be more focused too. I don't forget to reply to docs that much, it just mostly takes me awhile to post while I have other things to attend to on the side [in chat or rl stuff].)
ParticipantsI am comfortable with:
✔ One on one role plays. ( casual + plot + mission
✔ Up to three people. ( casual + plot + mission
✔ Up to four people. ( plot + mission
✔ Five or more people! ( mission
✘ As big as possible!
(I've....already tried this with my mission, and mew had a pretty chaotic time. I would not like this to repeat itself -cries at the posting time with 11 people-)
Post LengthI usually write about:
✔ One or two sentences.
(Only if the rp is super casual / funny.)
✔ One or two paragraphs.
(If the rp is casual, I can write at least a tiny paragraph.)
✔ Two to five paragraphs.
✔ More than five paragraphs.
✘ A few pages worth.
(I tend to be very descriptive and long with my posts because I focus a lot on actions, emotions, expressions, and reactions to the other a-gent/setting to help form a more in depth world and person that my bby is communicating within. It takes me a good while to type, as people know, so I end up posting a bunch of wots.)
I am comfortable role-playing with people who write:
✔ One or two sentences.
✔ One or two paragraphs.
✔ Two to five paragraphs.
✔ More than five paragraphs.
✘ A few pages worth..
(Plz note- I would like an rp to be around equal from what I post to what you post. If I give you a good wot that is a paragraph or so long, but I receive one or two sentences in return, I will end up feeling like my effort in writing and describing my characters' reactions are wasted. I'm totally fine if your post isn't as many sentences as mine and vice versa- but I would just like to see more effort in what you write since content > filler. There are times when you can't write as much to respond to a situation, and I get that!)
Role-play RequestsI like getting requests from:
✔✔✔✔✔✔ Anyone and everyone at any time!
✔ - When I ask for role-plays.
✔ - From friends and acquaintances.
✘ - From friends only.
(Just ask me in chat or in Skype if you want to have an rp with me! I'm not picky at all, and I'm usually so self-conscious asking people to rp too -sweats-
In chat, I can handle 1-2 rps at a time, even more- tho if I were to have a 3rd+ rp, I will ask for the extra rp myself since I can't spread my attention well enough between 2+ rps a lot of the times. So if I ever have to decline your request, I will always offer a raincheck for another day in chat when I'm not as busy!)
**ALSO I feel like I will have to note: I will only rp with you in Skype/Docs/Notes if we have already rped well enough in chat. I would like to know you in chat before I start rping with you in a more private space. More of my attention will be put on private rps when I have a good friendship with the person. Also- being in chat shows you are an active member of the group, after all, especially when I'm in chat every day. So plz understand if I have to decline an rp in other spaces.)
Romantic Relationships** Important: Communication is the key to a real life relationship, it shouldn't be abandoned for a fictional on either! Be sure to talk to your partners when considering romance!
ShippingI 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.
(While I do not plan ships, I don't pursue ships that the other person isn't interested in.)
✘ It depends on the character.
** I will ship my bbys for obvious crack/fun though, but this meme here is more intentional romance stuff u/v/uIf you want to ship with my characters:
✘ Talk to me about it from the start. ( development > pre-planning. You never know what the chars might be like once they interact. <<<< all of this
✘ Talk to me about it once our characters know each other. (Mew assumes this is like at the first meeting or something, so please look at my explanation below.)
✔ Talk to me about it once they both have some feelings for each other.
(To ship my characters, I will need to see that their chemistry aligns well at the friendship stand point. If there's a potential for a romantic relationship, then plz discuss it with me so I can know where your heart wants to go and feels comfortable ♥ Tho do be mindful that I may have an OTP ship for them already, but I also don't mind one-sided crushes if the other A-gent doesn't act completely obsessive over my character. << Though this will also have to be approved with my rp partner that is part of my OTP, so they can be comfortable too. My characters can have multiple people they have a crush on, but again, I ask for what is comfortable between all parties and only the OTP ship will be pursued in the long run.)
✘ Talk to me about it when they finally decide that want to go beyond hugging.
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.
(I LOVE when a relationship happens more naturally and in depth. I don't like to force my characters' feelings where they don't fit, because that in itself demotivates me from the ship itself. Sometimes romance develops with a smack of the face, and I completely welcome those surprises when they come.)
SmutWhen 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.
Romantic ArtworkWhen it comes to artwork depicting our relationship please:
✔ Do not post it at all without talking to me.
(Especially for ships that aren't my OTP, I'd appreciate it a lot if you show it to me first, so I can accept or decline how the relationship is portrayed, and also get approval from my rp partner. <3)
✔ Post it if it is cuddles and hugs.
✔ Post it if it is kisses.
✔ Post it if it is much more.
✘ Do not post it at all if it depicts sexual acts!
✘✘✘✘✘/✔ (Please read below) Do not post it where I can see it, but draw what you like!
(I've never really talked about this except with my current rp partner, but I feel like this is important to note for myself and for others to be aware of. I am extremely sensitive to people posting "more serious" ship stuff between their characters and characters in my (approved) OTP. Crack ships are one thing which I'm totally fine about, but when I can't tell if it's crack or something a little more serious, I get really nervous but I don't like to say anything cuz I don't want to ruin your fun q x q;;;; So if you have ship art with my rp partner's character, feel free to show it to them if they are fine with it, but plz don't show it to me. You may ask if I want to see your art, especially if it's not kissing or anything too far, but if it's further than that, you can post the art if you want, but know that I can not look at it but I will not hold you against it either. <3 I dunno if I have to say what my current OTP ship is by this point, but if you have any questions, plz ask me in private ;u; )
Dramatics** 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!!
ViolenceWhen 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. (Torture is really iffy cuz if it's some super weird/crazy/cringey torture method, I'll chicken out right away. And I avoid sexual violence like. a. PLAGUE. I will not ever refer to it in my own rps, and will never allow it to come out in art or otherwise.)
(I may be cute, but I can handle violence. e____eb Bring it on. Tho obviously- these are for mission/event times, not for casual times at base dkasjhdaksd aside for verbal arguments)
If you are going to do something violent, please:
✘ Don't do it at all.
✔ Talk to me about it first.
✔ Surprise me!
(On a mission/event, unless you're gonna take off my bby's whole leg. Plz no.)
✘ Do not post any dramatic scenes that that happened between our characters.
✔ Talk to me about it before posting!
✔ Post what you like!
(As long as no one is losing a limb or anything too gorey, I'm totally fine with all the art! But if you are unsure, you can gimme a poke in private.)
