right at the VERY VERY CENTER, is a concentrated bulb of sadness and regret and a longing for love that he can’t let himself have. And it’s there, and it’s visible if even a little attention is paid to the character, but it’s tragic because you keep him in character by not letting that be fully resolved. I think if it was completely resolved and healed and Jim was somehow happy and my heart stopped crying over him for five seconds I would be worried. But my heart still creys and you are perf.))
((Asdfghjkl; I’m glad you understand him well enough to know that yeah, he’s a terrible, bad person with layers and when people interact with him they shouldn’t expect to be all buddy buddy with him. You try to be sympathetic towards him and he will rip you to shreds. Just ask Sherlock. or Lamont.
Baaaah if Jim ever just resolved his issues he’d make us all stop crying but I do so love the taste of your tears Buggers. :U ))
((Go do it.))
I recently stopped rping with someone, let’s call her Jane, who had a knack for taking a canon character from our fandom and making AU’s for them. Alternate Universe characters are fine, and when done well they can really provide a wonderful exploration of canon and provide a chance to rp with people outside your fandom, if you’re normally uncomfortable with that.
But Jane made her AU’s SO alternate that they ended up being just bare bone parodies of the original characters. It was to the point where just about everyone in the group noticed that her character was so far from canon as to be almost completely unrecognizable, and when anybody tried to bring this up to her, Jane would plead loudly that it was an AU and she could do what she wanted, and didn’t care.
This eventually led to people drifting away from her, including me. I love AU’s and OC’s, but when there’s no distinction between the two it’s almost like a smack in the face to the character you’re attempting to play.
“…are ya lost Jimmy?”
“No. But I can tell things are going on in the sewers.” :|
no emma see its not racist her white instructors told her 2 do it so its fine
a white person told her to do it
My teacher is Hispanic :)
((wow I’m getting really fucking fed up with this shit.
Do people just look for shit to bitch about over the internet? I’m pretty sure they do. Boo fucking hoo someone did some theater make up and posted it on the internet wow. Is hundreds of notes on the picture and tagged posts bashing one fucking woman who had to do it for class fucking necessary? Everyone can go fuck themselves wow.))
((Fucking this. It’s THEATER MAKEUP. HAVE ANY OF YO BEEN TO AN ACTUAL THEATER AND KNOW HOW NECESSARY THIS MAKEUP IS?
No? then SHUT THE FUCK UP. All you are doing is bullying and harassing someone for what their school had them do. Stop hounding on her because she’s “white”. That’s fucking racist. Her teacher is HISPANIC. Her class is DIVERSE. They’ve made other ethnicity look WHITE are you going to say a black person looking white is offending to you too? Because it’s basically cosplay/characture for fucking PLAY?
Stop with your double standards, and stop being internet bullies. ))
Fairly good, I suppose. Roaming around town and going to places I really shouldn’t go. The usual.
* She shrugged casually*
And You? It’s been quite a while. Belated Happy Birthday, as well.
[Jim raised an eyebrow about the birthday thing. Wasn’t something he actively focused on. Hell, he forgot until Sherlock had given him something that day.]
I’m fine. The usual here aside from rebuilding Millennium. Might be getting a new coven master. We’ll see how that goes. Heard something went down with Conrad. Is he all right?
Please reblog this as a link in order to spare people’s dashboards from a huge post!
Alright so it’s been a while since I’ve seen any sort of helpful guide to fight roleplays on Tumblr, and I think it’s desperately needed, especially with the amount of people…
