REBLOG THIS IF YOU LIKE TO PLOT! there seems to have been a big decrease in people who are interested in plotting and building actual, long-lasting dynamics between muses and work on mutual character development and world-building lately. so if you’re a mun who actually enjoys the aforementioned and plotting ooc with your writing partners, old or new, could you please reblog this post? also, it doesn’t matter if you consider yourself “good” or “bad” at plotting. just as long as you have an interest in plotting with your rp partners, you can reblog this!

so, say you want to activate the first link on the included directory, which is the #rules page, page 2.
you’re going to click where you want the link to jump to. in this case, i’ll put it at the beginning of the rules page, here:
then you will click insert>bookmark, and a bookmark will appear where you placed your cursor, looking like this:
once that’s done, you can scroll back to your directory, highlight the text you want to link to this bookmark, and then click the link icon.
this drop-down will appear. look through your bookmarks for the one that is located in the appropriate place, and select it, and then hit ‘apply.’
done ! your rules are now linked from your directory to the next page.
you can change the colour of this text, and add/remove the underline, and the link will still remain. you can do this for as many pages/sections in your directory as you like !

I can’t believe this still needs to be said in the year of our lord twenty twenty-one but please read people’s rules before you follow their blog, not after. Remember, when you follow somebody, they will instinctively click on your blog to check you out, so please be mindful of the fact that your blog may cause discomfort to said mun because you unintentionally broke some of their rules or do not interact criteria (ex. they expressed a discomfort with a specific faceclaim or fandom that you’re in.)

A TUTORIAL ON A FANCY PINTEREST.
pinterest has been an essential tool for writers and roleplayers alike for a few years now, everyone likes making board to showcase their muses, worldbuild, etc. if you’re like me and you like to be extravant, you’ll go through the effort of editing every single pin in your boards to have that cohesive, aesthetic look. under the cut you’ll find a tutorial on how i do it.
01. you’ll need a template to uniformly edit the pins into a single size, i have provided this one here which also comes with a cover image. once you have adquired the template, we can prepare to start pinning.
02. you don’t need a new pinterest for this method to work, i did it with my old pinterest just fine. i just used a new one because i have plans for it and it will be easier for people to not get confused.
03. on your pintered, you’ll need to make three boards. “unedited.”, “unsorted.” and “misc.”. i use unedited to store all the unedited pins, that is where the pinning happens. i use unsorted to dump all of the pins i have yet to decide belong to what muse, or the things i just want to save. and i use misc for the case that i find anything i want to save for later or for another use. i recommend using “- name” for these boards, as the slash will make sure they’re the first on the list of boards. these three boards will be set to private so they’re not eyesores on your pinterest.
04. once you have these boards, you’ll want to go into “- unedited” and make two sections per character: [character name - edited.] and [character name - unedited]. i know this may seem confusing, but i use one board to store the pins i have yet to edit and to use the suggested feature, and the other to place the original pins i have already edited as i go along.
05. now, outside the “- unedited” board, you’ll make your actual character board where the final result of you editing will go. this is where you can go wild with the fancy name, but make sure this board has personalization turned off. i simply used my default pinterest board name for it, but you do whatever you want.
06. now that you have the set up, you can open the template i provide. inside you’ll find a folder, and in that folder three other folders. “cover.”, “images.” and “psd.”. inside the “cover.” folder is the cover that we’ll use as, well, a cover. inside the “images.” folder are more folders, with their own subfolders. that is where the unedited pins go, respectively. your characters go within “character(s).”, your ships in “relationship(s).”, etc. this organization will make pinning much easier. finally, inside the “psd.” folder you’ll find a limited edition [/j] psd to use on your pins. or use whatever you want, i’m just a sign.
07. we’ll start by pinning a few images, i’m using ten but, again, this is just an example. remember to pin these within “- unedited.” and within the section labelled “[muse name] - unedited” as well. once you’ve got those, just open them all in their own tab and save the images ... or be an animal like me and just copy and paste them, i’m just a sign. simply left click, copy image, ctrl + c it on the appropriate folder in the template. i’m using this one so i just copy pasted it on top of the background colour. i forgot to do it, but i suggest labelling these layers with the character name so you don’t get lost.
now, with the image layer selected, ctrl + t, make sure you have proportional editing selected, and drag until it more or less fits. now enable the “psd.” folder, and there you go. remember to edit the “title.” to say whatever you want, i’m not doing it ‘cause i’m lazy and this is an example. then just save for web, png or jpeg, and there we go. as i save the pins, i label them 0#.
i recommend making three cover images. one with the title, two without. simple hide the title layers, paste two other images, and save them as well.
for the other pins, as you edit them, click on “organize” and move the already edited pins onto the “[muse name] - edited.” section so you don’t get lost. that’s why my pinterest is zoomed out to 75%, so each row shows 10 pins cause it makes it easier.
08. now that we have the cover images, we can finally head to our fancy pinterest board. you’ll want to go to the big plus, as if you were making a selection, but his “pin” instead. now make three pins by hitting the plus on the side. the pins will automatically upload onto the folder you open it from. simply click and upload your images.
09. now we can get fancy! for the title i use the character name, and for the body just a quote. i also use messletters to make it look nice with special fonts. make your text and copy paste it onto every single pin. now just click on save or on the little circle to the side to save multiples at a time! i’ll go with save cause it’s three pins.
10. and this is how it looks like! now, simply go onto the three little dots right after the title, click edit board, and select the board cover. select the one with the text and click save.
11. now this is how it looks like! all you gotta do now is edit all of your pins, upload them all as i showed, and then do the same for all of your boards.

PSA: INTERACTION GUILT TRIPPING
We’ve all run across them at one point or another (if you haven’t, count yourself lucky but you probably will!)- that partner that makes demands of your time and it makes you feel...not so great. But sometimes you need to check yourself and make sure you are not the one making other people uncomfortable inadvertently.
No one owes you their time or interaction. You read that? Now read it it again- no one owes you their time or interaction. That’s not to say that you should disregard the time of others and not try to give a heads up about hiatus, or abandoning your blog, or responding to everyone but those five people for six months. That’s crappy behavior too (pressing life circumstances aside, we all have life emergencies and crap come up and those of course always do take precedence). But if you’re bored or down, you are NOT owed interaction just because you want it right now.
And guess what? If people have learned how to draw healthy boundaries, and been around long enough, they recognize those behaviors and it pushes them away, it doesn’t solicit interaction, rather the exact opposite.
What are you talking about, Salty, you may ask? Here’s some examples, not copied from anyone, this is purely off my 10+ years of roleplay:
“Muse xyz is super horny right now guys send in memes!” followed up by “Guess nobody wants my muse cuz I didn’t get any!”
Multi muse blog- “this ONE muse is super active right now guys oh my god you need to send memes I can’t do anything else” followed by “why does nobody want this muse??”
“I’m feeling down/bored/depressed/suicidal, send memes” followed by “I must not matter, nobody sent anything”
“I see everyone reblogging stuff but they’re ignoring me why is no one interacting??!”
“Is my tumblr broken? Cuz I have an empty inbox”
“Soooo guess I don’t exist cuz my inbox has no notifications”
If you have posted any of these...hate to break it to you, but this is actually what is known as emotional manipulation. It functions off pulling comments and interactions because you are expressing feeling unseen, bored, depressed, and then making it the other person’s problem. This is not healthy behavior, and rightfully makes people uncomfortable because they may worry about the posting mum’s mental health seeing these kind of posts. It is okay to vent about a bad day, it’s okay to want to interact with people- we are literally here to interact with each other! What’s not okay is mixing the two and making interacting with you mandatory (written or not, these kind of posts it’s always implied).
The next time you feel the urge to make that kind of a post ask yourself these things:
Am I projecting my current feelings (boredom, lack of relationship/sex, anger) etc. on my muse? Remember that mun ≠ muse and you should be careful to avoid doing this in excess.
Am I working to provide my own interaction? Have I sought it out by messaging a mun with plot ideas? Have I sent any memes myself that I’m annoyed my inbox is empty? People are much more likely to reciprocate sending memes with the people that do send them. One sided relationships, because yes, you are developing relationships with your fellow muns, are never fun.
Do I maybe need to step away from tumblr and do something to adjust my mindset before trying to interact? Take a nap, a shower, go for a walk, have a meal, get some water, watch your favorite movie, etc.
Remember, majority of tumblr rp is quite familiar with anxiety, depression, and neurodivergency- most of the muns have a good general idea of what a bad day can feel like. How that bad day is handled though, that’s fully on you.
TLDR: don’t guilt your fellow muns into interacting with you, this is toxic, emotional manipulation and NOT OKAY.

Here is a quick reminder to the RPC, which seems to have forgotten about.
Unfollowing/softblocking/hardblocking someone isn’t necessarily, a sign of hate.
Cutting off contact with someone, shouldn’t be seen as troubling/problematic or interpreted as something inherently bad. Regardless of the way somebody, chooses to go about it.
Obviously it sucks when such thing happens, no one is invalidating anyone’s experiences. However, if things are left unattended, they can evolve into something toxic which will only cause harm to everyone involved in it.
There is nothing bad in quietly unfollowing, softblocking or straight up blocking someone. There should not be any guilt while doing so. And whoever does this is in NO obligation of giving any explation, for doing so. They are not overreacting by preemptively blocking people, they are catering to their own needs.
What isn’t okay is to vaguepost, guilt trip, block evade, stepping over that person’s boundaries. Insecurity can be a bitch, we are always bound to assume the worst out of situations. Our mind will try to come up with numerous kinds of reasonings, explanations and justifications that’s normal. However, regardless of those things, you should still respect the other’s decision of parting ways. Here is a tip: move on, go find something else to do.
The RPC of 2021 should start to actually do the things, it is constantly preaching about.
Edit 1: obviously this isn't taking into consideration situations where, RP partners that have known and talked to each other for a long time. In that case, communicating with each other should be the bare minimum. It is common courtesy to at least, inform the other party you are no longer interested in Rping, or would like to cut ties with.
I know it is difficult and it is bound to obviously hurt somebody, but I guarantee you. It is 100 times better, than ghosting or blocking without any warnings given.

RPERS WITH LIVE ACTION FCS! could you do me a favor and reblog this if you DO NOT MIND writing with muses who uses cartoon / anime / manga / drawn / animated faceclaims? i know there’s a lot of people who has it in their rules that they do not wish to interact with muses who does not have a live action fc, but it would be nice to know who are open to interacting with muses with fcs who are not necessarily live action!

so i wanted to talk a little bit about accessibility in the rpc, because over time i feel like it’s become less and less accessible and harder to communicate your needs with other people in the rpc. aesthetics are important. i know this. i’m guilty of being a slave to aesthetics and graphics etc, but please still be mindful of people who might not be able to access your blog because of this.
a BIG THING is avoiding copy & paste fancy fonts, which are the bane of every person who uses a screenreader and anyone else who struggles reading different fonts all at once. if you have everything written in fancy fonts, you owe me $50. anyways, just refrain from using them! i know they look very neat. i know they’re sexy. but just find alternatives, like html tags (<code> tags are a neat dupe to the monospace fancy fonts) and things like that. if anything, ask your partner(s) if they’re okay with you using those fonts in your threads. communication!!!! communication!!!!!!!!!!!
in the same vein of screenreaders, make sure that all of your text is plain text, and not images! there’s plenty of blogs i’ve seen out there who have most of their descriptions, carrd pages, etc, ALL written in images, which is impossible to access for a myriad of different reasons. don’t do that. just use regular text. i’m begging.
carrds or linked pages attached to your blog are often easier to navigate than google docs on mobile. i’m not saying you need to change to carrd or anything, but offering an alternative is very helpful. it can just be all your text copy and pasted into a regular page.
i’ve heard people find carrds that don’t have clear navigation to be an issue (links without clear direction, images with no label, etc, etc) so i would just suggest having an option for a clear navigation. if anyone wants to elaborate on that more, feel free to.
at the end of the day, communicate with your partners more! make it clear that you both are there for fun and care for each other’s health and ability to pursue this silly little hobby. listen to each other. take each other’s needs into account. the rpc has become a place centered around the aesthetics rather than the fun and connections in my opinion, and i think we need to make sure we’re not just focusing on the aesthetics.
again, aesthetics are important (depending who you ask ofc), but accessibility and community is also if not more important.

One thing I see way too much in the RPC is people who don't tell new followers if they're not interested in writing with them; they just say nothing and seem to hope that this new person will 'take the hint' and unfollow on their own. People, this is a hobby built on communication. Communicate. Especially since many of us can't understand implications like this, and will often assume that Tumblr's habit of swallowing messages/asks/notifications is responsible instead. It takes less than a minute of your time to type out “I'm not interested” and send it. We're not mind readers, and it's not fair to act like we're all capable of complex emotional comprehension.

Sexual Sunday: Do’s and Don’ts
Always be 18+. This isn’t optional, you can literally get a mun in deep legal trouble if you’re writing this as a minor. You must be so tall to ride this ride, sorry. Fade to back until you’re universally legal, NO EXCEPTIONS.
Read your partners rules before sending in memes, especially if it’s been a while and you can’t trust yourself to remember them. If nothing else, most people usually have at least something specified for the N/SFW interactions. Read them, respect them. Easy peasy.
Don’t get offended if a mun will write something with a different partner that they’re not comfortable writing with you. People have different comfort levels with different people and this is valid.
No is a full sentence. It doesn’t need justification.
Remember that your tags cannot have fancy symbols, emojis, or punctuation in them if they’re to be picked up by blacklist features: “#nsfw” or “#nsfw tw” etc are what will actually get picked up and properly blocked for those blacklisting it.
Mun ≠ muse. Shipping/writing adult content does not mean you are in a sexual or romantic relationship with that mun. It also should not be used for self inserted gratification (unless that’s something you have discussed amongst yourselves and it’s consented to between muns). If you cannot separate yourself from your muse, write fanfic.
