How is my driving? How am I doing with my character? Any issues and concerns you have with how I play Saft go here. And this means anything, relationships, how she goes about things, anything she's done you get the drill.

I know what most people think of her but yea, I sort of want to get all this crap and drama out of the air because I know people are staring to get pissed off with her and I'm really sorry about it. But I'm one of these people who prefer to be told rather than sit around and get more and more paranoid and eventually end up doing something really stupid like cause drama that doesn't need to be there, especcially in a crack RPG.

I have to second all of the points that Envy made here.

After watching it go on for over a month, I realize this HAL plot is getting really ridiculous and it might benefit you to get out of it.

Thirded.

I had no idea the HAL plot was still actually going on. I feel like it's been happening forever....

I think the Hal plot has been around since before I went on hiatus.

Agreed guys I do actually want to pull Saft out of the Hal plot mostly because, I'm not enjoying it at all and the more I think about it the more I find it's alot like Saft's Dad plot :/ Blah Blah Blah - getting used to do bad things? Been done.

I'm guilty for jumping into alot of cliched plots. Mostly because if I see something that quirks my intrest I'm usually all over that.

I dun have spellcheck on my computer, well Microsoft word at least therefore I miss alot of stuff like that.

I also don't really mentioning to people I have learning difficulties, because I know if I did people would just accuse me of trying to use that as a excuse so bleh. D: I just try and get on as best as I can, if people want to bitch me out about typos I have no problem about it...I just want people to take into consideration thatnot everyone's perfect.

And re-reading this it's probaly going to come off the wrong way. But that's one of the reasons I rather dislike trying to communicate over the internet, Anything you type can be read the wrong way and thus misunderstandings happen all the damn time.

I'm on Firefox, and see I didn't even know that :/ As always I'm the last to know about anything. (But at the moment I'm in internet explorer since I'm at my mother's house.)

T~T Also if you're willing to do Sfat Art for icons I'd totally use 'em it's just that A) I'm attrocious at Tegaki B) I'm better on paper only that I have no damn scanner and even if I did my colouing wouldn't be much better anyway hence the edited manga characters (Ala Rose from FMA and Kallen from Code Geass are the only characters I can seem to find who look anywhere near what as I picture Saft in my head to be.)

I SECOND EVERYTHING JORDAN JUST SAID. Getting someone else to proofread your posts wouldn't hurt, because as one anon pointed out on the meme, you've misspelled the word "lose" numerous times in a row before. *such a grammar nazi*

And for some reason, half-dragon characters just annoy me in general. It seems cliche and overused. It may also have to do with those otherkin furries constantly going on about how they have the spirit of a dragon inside of them.

Oh, plus, repeating posts gets pretty annoying too. As Jordan mentioned above, you've done the whole "SAFT HAS GONE CRAZY AND IS BURNING ALL YOUR STUFF" thing quite a few times before.

Point taken, I'm actually going to try and let Saft have a break at the moment and develop my other characters.

Thanks for the concrit.

Eep late cat is late

Hey! I know we kinda talked about it before, but uh, if I haven't said it yet - well for one, you shouldn't be worried for being judged for serious characterization at cldr because... well. You know. :\ It's caps. I believe that's why some became frustrated with Saft because you almost always put srs bzns into what's supposed to be pure horrendously insane cracky fun.

Definitely ease down on the constant "Oh I'm an orphan and a dragon" and all that, y'know? Most everyone who knows Saft knows this already. And for everyone new, you don't have to have her repeat her story over and over again. Be more show and tell. If she's unsure about people then show it through her actions, not coming right out and saying it :D.

Also, like I said before - I'm not sure which Saft is supposed to be. A little withdrawn and shy because she's not used to being around people? Tomboyish but dreamy? Confrontational and snarky (personally I think those snark comments are pretty OOC for Saft)? No one ever said you should only have one trait but having certain ones together clashes and it's like you're trying to push cliche archetypes all into one character and it's not working honey. Stick to a certain thing and let it grow.

And don't be impatient, give yourself room to grow, think it out a little more if you want to have srs plots. But if that's mostly what you want, maybe you should try out Saft at [livejournal.com profile] uncreativity's strictly OC comm, get some experience with fellow OC players. C:

Don't be afraid to as for this kind of thing bb, told you I'm more than willing to help you out. ♥

So late... ;__;

I was going to post anonymously but it makes it less serious. Ripping off a plaster here, quick and simple. I dislike Saft I'm sorry to say. I find her to much of a mary-sue type and too srs.

Firstly I get the feeling you want Saft to experience everything...EVERYTHING. Things have to revolve around her. I've noticed in serveral recent posts that you've made about Saft, and Saft only. That is why you get only about 2 different characters commenting on your post.

Also, she is an OC. For every new person that joins I feel like you're giving them everything at once. If they want to know about your character, they'll read her journal. To be honest I like OC's such as Kavachi and such but yours just pisses me off. She's srs, too srs for my liking and judging by everyone elses comments, for their liking also.

My advice is just to tone-down the srs posts and if you're going to post often, post interaction posts or posts that involve other characters more. I'm sure she'll be liked that way.

That's cool I appreciate the input.

My problem is I like cliché pure and simple. Can't get enough of it. Everything Saft seems to do is one big huge cliche I suppose and I think I'm just so used to roleplaying in my own format I tend to think "screw everyone else, I'll do what I'm comfortable with! Not everyone's forced to play with me so yanno even if she just get a little interactiohat's pretty cool.

I'd like to do more interaction posts but I'm always afraid I'll do something that's been over done, stuff like the proms and beach parties? I really can't put my head down and think of something new to do with her and everyone else which will be fun. Also I'm pretty certain some muns have already designated themselves as the ones that do the interaction posts it sometimes feels a little off if there's a new one that comes up and it really isn't organised.

Like I said thanks for the advice, it's helpful. Sometimes I need people to stop me when I'm bored from roleplaying I'll over post like crazy and it's a really bad habit of mine.

I haven't really get to know your character too well but I was just amused at the conversation with her and Vincent. Yeah I really know how you feel with the cliche and simple stuff. I really do want to reconstruct and fix my characters. Like this character but to be honest I really can suck at describing things. :/

So yeah keep it up buddy!

Hehe, Well if you do get an idea of how much you'd want charging please let me know. *Thinks it's kinda funny because recently Saft's had a hair cut and she has all these long hair icons she has no clue what to do with for now lololol*

I'd love to see your version of Saft's Dragon form too.

pokute: (move bitch get out da way)
From: [personal profile] pokute
Regarding recent events in Ink City, how is it possible that you're writing a character who has had a "traumatic history," in terms of having been apparently raped by her father, but during the wedding event, does not seem to be affected by the idea of being forced into a relationship with a man?

Do you just use the rape card as a means to somehow make this character "deeper" or do you actually just not have a clue what rape victims go through, psychologically? If the former, that's the cheapest trick in the book, and actually on the whole offensive to actual rape victims like myself, and if the latter, what would possess you to just toss that in to her character history without the proper knowledge of how to write a character who has been through that sort of thing?

I'm not trying to say that you're incapable of writing a character going through something you've personally never been through, since honestly that's what Roleplay is all about! Imagination and exploration through events and happenings you yourself haven't actually (and probably couldnt actually) experienced is like the soul drive of roleplay itself. It's writing for someone else, being in someone else's head and playing out their lives ~in fiction~.

What I am saying though, is that you are not handling the situation with the proper amount of care that a touchy subject like Rape requires. You as a person make light of the subject, joking around about it ooc, and in turn horribly offending people that have been raped and molested In Real Life. Maybe you haven't considered this fact, maybe no one has had the balls to tell you, or maybe you/they just don't care. But it's wrong and you should probably take into consideration that while YOU Think it's funny because it's fake, there are people around you that don't share your mindset. Just a thought.

Not to mention you actually seem to ignore the fact that it's something your character has gone through IC, that would actually affect her IC decision-making. you can't just throw something major and life-changing like that into a character description and then ignore it when it suits your needs. Either change that part of her story or have her act like it matters.

You're just kinda pissing people off at this point.
