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 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.

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 A little withdrawn and shy because she's not used to being around people?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.

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!

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.
