hi do you know what "para ic"

It simply means a paragraph that is in character. Meaning that a paragraph is written in the characters perspective, not the roleplayer themselves.

For those who would like some one-on-one real time answers from me, please feel free to add fuckyeahroleplayadvice to your skype!

I am currently online if you’d like to chat and ask questions :)

Edit: NOW CLOSED. Will reopen in the future.

What do you do if two people reply to your open, if one is about a day after the other? Is it okay to keep both going or should you just stick with the person who responded first?

Totally personal preference.

If you can handle both partners and enjoyed both of the responses, go for it.

If you preferred the first one and not the second one, just politely decline.

Hope this helps!

Do you think it's kind of being an asshole when you're listing to someone telling you the prompt and you just go "okay" or "sounds cool" or "I see" or something like that to show that you are listening but have nothing to add? I wonder if it makes me sound uninterested.

'Asshole' is definitely not the term I would use here, so I wouldn't think that harshly of yourself.

However, I think it may seem that you’re a little uninterested.

I’ve noticed it’s kind of off putting to people, so now if I really like an idea or I’m good with it, but have nothing to say, I say something along the lines of this:

I really enjoy the idea! I apologize for not saying much in response—I don’t want you to think I’m not interested, but I think the idea is great by itself and I just don’t have much to add to it :)

Maybe this will help you in the future to seem less ‘uninterested’ to others!

Hi! I just wanted to thank you so much for making all of those playlists, they're SO helpful for getting in the right mood for writing (and doing art!). Do you plan on doing anymore?

I’m glad you enjoy them!

Yes, I do, but they just take time. I currently have 2 others in the works at the moment.

Hello, I was wondering what type of info I should put on a canon rp blog? I know this must sound like a dumb question, but I just made an indie blog and I wrote a lot of details regarding my character's personality and background. Like, it's really long. But when I went to look at other blogs, some people have really short bios or none at all, so I was wondering if I should maybe shorten mine or remove it completely?
Anonymous

Usually, people going in and roleplaying canon characters know at least some information about the character before roleplaying with them. So, where it me, I would shorten it. I think important chunks of info are good, and a general personality run down in your own words, etc.

If someone wants to know all about a character, they can easily look up a wiki page or just ask you about them!

I hope this helps!

I did a quick search for this but couldn't find it anywhere, so sorry if this has been asked before. One of my role-play partners is on a semi-hiatus for a week or two,whilst I still owe them a reply. But I'm wondering...would it be considered bad etiquette for me to leave my reply until nearer the day they get back? Or would that be considered reasonable?

I think it’s okay either way. You can even just put a little OOC message at the end letting them know that you put it nearer until they came back so they didn’t have to see messages piling up, etc. if that were the case. 

To me, there is nothing wrong with it. However, unless someone specifically states something along the lines of ‘please no replies until I return’, then I would respect their wishes.

Hope this helps!

So, I am a bit at a loss for words right now.

After starting this blog a few years ago, I never, ever thought that this blog would have grown to where it is right now!

5000 and constantly growing. That makes me feel really honored and so grateful that you people feel that this blog does something for you and other roleplayers. That means a lot—more than I can convey.

Thank you all for sticking with me during my times of ridiculous stress that is my anxiety disorder and life in general. I appreciate you all. Thank you guys so very much.

And on that note, I am going to reopen the ask box in celebration. Of course, I have asks still sitting in there, but my muse just isn’t getting to them right now, and I’ve cleared several out that violated the Read Me First/have been answered previously. 

Hopefully, new questions coming in may spark me to go on a marathon of answering questions.

Thank you guys again. It means so much and I am so happy!

I recently started an Boy X Boy storyline plot between a trouble making, ill-tempered character and a serious lawyer. Which at first sounded great but the person rping the lawyer I feel is god-moding me. Our character literally just meet and already he keeps pinning my character down and kissing him nonstop. Even when my character threaten him to stop, he still continued and made it seem like his character was stronger than mine and there was nothing my character could do to stop him from basically forcefully kissing him TT___TT To make matters worse his character is confessing his love for my character and getting angry because my character being a man isn’t going to shut out his feelings specially when he barley knows the man nor his characters name. What should I do? Should I just go along with him constantly pinning my character and kissing his brains out? 

No, I would definitely talk to your partner about the situation.

Here is what I would say:

There is something we need to discuss. I don’t really appreciate your character constantly forcing my character into situations where x is kissing y and y isn’t allowed to get away, etc. [Offer examples]. I consider this to be god moding, and don’t appreciate that. Also, the characters have only just met and your character is professing love for him. I think there should be a build up before things like that happen. Can we work on changing this?

Just be honest with them about how you feel about the situation. If they get mad and become rude about it, just block them so they can cool down. Try to keep the conversation civil.

Hope this helps!

What does it mean when people use exclamation marks when they're talking about different "versions" of characters? I've seen it used a lot, in and out of roleplay. Like "Evil!Sam" or "Drunk!John". Sorry if this has been asked before, I didn't know how to search for this since I don't know what it's called.
Anonymous

It’s just a marker for the type or trope of the character mentioned.

Like Evil!Sam is the evil version of Sam, and Drunk!John is a drunk version of John, etc. 

You can use it for almost anything concerning a character.

Hope this helps!
