"I do not own the picture but will talke it down if asked": This is a very lazy and hypocritical attempt to justify yourself for using a picture without permission. It doesn't make any sense, and in no way excuses you from breaking one of the rules of the chatroom ("All images, movie, music, or material displayed or linked from profile must have full permission or have no copyright violation"). If you want to do things legitimately, ask permission to use the picture from the author and maybe give them credit too, OR use only pictures you own; or just keep using it without permission like most people does, but don't pretend that that one meaningless line legitimates you in any way.

Time to rant.

I have a habit to avoid mice characters. While I'm sure tons of them are great writers and RPers, I have experienced an extensive trend with them that goes somewhat like this.

[Mice Character -> Me] *smiles* hi
or
[Mice Character -> Me] *Walks up to you* hi

Things like that annoy me. Not only do I extensively dislike IC greetings, but you just gave a less than one line post, and expect me to pick up on that with an interesting response? You gave absolutely nothing for me to reply to. My response is going to change based on time of day, setting, tons of things, and you're giving nothing of actual value to respond to.

Another is, when I explain to someone that I have absolutely no interest in IC approaches, they instantly hop into IC once more as if I had said nothing. Not only is that disrespectful to my wishes, but you have NO clue what I want to do. Maybe I'm not even in a vore mood, and you're sitting here pushing it on me like I owe you an RP. I don't know what you want, and you're expecting me to fulfill exactly what you need without even a minor discussion.

If you want to RP with me, it's quite simple. Here's how a greeting towards me, in my head, should properly go.

[Character -> Me] Hey/Greetings! I was wondering if you'd be open for a scene.
[Me -> Character] Depends, what kind of scene are you looking for?
[Character -> Me] (Explanation of what they are looking for.)

Then we would go on to talk about it, adjusting parts of the scenes, devising the setting and what fetishes would be involved. RPing is a two-person or more process. Please don't force all of it on me.

Whew, I'm gonna come across as a bitch, but I have a lot of pet peeves.

-) Bad grammar, spelling and a lack of punctuation. Now, I don't mind the occasional typo, or the wrong tense from time to time. Things like that happen. But if you can pretty much see that your partner is RPing... well, with their dominant hand occupied, it just spoils the fun for me.

-)*...*-Style RPing, first person, short posts. I tend to write shorter posts if the RP drags on, or if I'm playing a character that has a more... boring personality, but those posts still are around three paragraphs long. I'm unable to enjoy a RP if it's not paragraph style, so that might be me being a dick, but I hate when my partner replies with just "*smiles* ok" after I established that I just do paragraph-style and just wrote a 700-word starter post.

-) People who want to force me to RP something I don't like /get pissy if I refuse. I'm rather rigid in my preferences. I won't RP female preds or myself, and I much prefer to RP with other people who RP OCs or canon characters. I won't RP smut with people who I don't know well, and I also don't want to RP prey for a female pred. But some people won't understand that, and aside from insults (I was called a "gay reta*d" on omegle for my preferences once, for example), they sometimes try to guilt/force me into bowing to their preferences. I'm sorry, but I get that you dislike my peferences, so please get that I don't like yours.

-)People who complain about posts taking too long. I don't RP in chatrooms, where it makes sense, and this is mostly related to my second pet peeve, but it bothers me when people get rude if you take longer than a few minutes to write a post. I RP on skype, through private messaging, things like that. For me RPing a scenario often takes days to weeks, and with some people, we both just drop by to posts once a day or so. And I make that clear before RPing. And still, I've had people get offended over me taking a break to eat, use the bathroom or going to work, or even for taking longer for my usually long-ish posts.

-)RPs that have no build-up. For example in vore - and especially when I'm pred - I hate those "pred meets prey, pred eats prey, prey gets digested/spat out, the end" RPs. Even when RPing smut, and especially when it's the characters' first meeting, I need some build up. The characters need to be introduced, the reasons and motives need to get established, etc. I often even have a shortish "introduction"-RP to get a feel for the chars if RPing an AU or something like that.

-)People who confuse you with your OC/character. I admit, my OCs are often similar to me, but that doesn't mean I am my OCs. And I really don't appreciate being treated like them - especially if I play a villain and get accused of supporting murder, etc - or being hit on repeatedly just because my OC or character is single. Especially if the person knows I'm taken, and they keep doing it. ESPECIALLY if the person keeps misgendering me.

-)Stolen art in character profiles. Stop taking random anime pictures of pixiv or deviantart or tumblr or etc. Like, seriously. Even if you add "I don't own the art", it's still taking another person's work. Often without credit. Draw it yourself, get a commission, use a character-creator, just stop taking other people's art.

There's plenty more, but these all really bother me.

Ohh goodness, where to start? People annoy me, I admit, but I am usually too nice to tell it to their faces, or mean, if that makes me mean. Anyway I'll see if I can word what peeves me without offending people.... And this is mainly in the chat room.

Female/herm pred characters who feel they have the right away just because they eat things and have boobs: Seriously, they act like they're better then other predators, it's really annoying. In every room at least once a day I have a female predator mocking my male predator only character about eating him or if not in the OOC room, flat out just trying to do so. Here I am just talking to other people and I get some comment about someone's female predator eating mine, because she thinks she's better. (I know, most female characters are played by guys) It's degrading and makes me feel like I'll never be taken seriously because my character isn't a herm or female.

Lazy people: Just obvious genuine laziness, I don't mind people approaching me (when has that happened last again?) with no ideas, we can talk or usually I have swarms of ideas in my head that I want to try, but when they just say okay, maybe, or sure or some other lame thing, it makes me feel they're not really interested or care, they also don't add any more to the idea. Then once the roleplay starts, it's pretty much the same. I can write this nice, decent sized four sentence start and they give me, at best a half liner, ignoring half of what I posted or more. Very irking....

People not reading sliders: This is sort of self explanatory, people would approach in whispers or in public and try to force me into stuff that my profile clearly states I don't want. This includes digestion, when clearly I'm endo only, but write that there's acid in the stomach. There's numerous examples but I won't write them all since most here also have a problem with this and know what I mean.

Overpowered prey only/mainly characters: Seriously, what's the point? I see these profiles with like 25/75 pred/prey, they prefer unwilling but obviously like vore, but then further down they have power after power after power, some of these are stronger then most pure pred characters I've seen, I don't understand it.

Bragging characters: Kind of like the first peeve, but this goes for all characters, I find it quite annoying when characters approach me, only to just suddenly spew out all their powers, their job and everything to my character and no matter what my character says, they just reply with something about them again. Unless my character thinks or says something negative, then either the other character reads his mind and puts him in a guilt trip, or just does the guilt trip.

..... Okay I'm done being pissy now lol, zen mode~

It's either when someone just stops in the middle of the rp without saying anything and don't bother replying in the future, or someone begging me to play something that I don't like.

I don't RP often. This isn't really a pet peeve as it only happened once, but I wanted to tell my experience.

One of my first real RP experiences was with a user here, where we both liked a lot of the same stuff so I approached them after seeing their "looking for partner" post by chance (it was their only post in the forum). I told them that I was a RP noob and they were very understanding and willing to help me. We agreed to do a quick, simple one-shot to get acquainted. We started the RP and it was really, really cool initially, at least for me. The plot wasn't extremely original, so maybe they lost interest after a while, I don't know. The point is that, after RP'ing for a few weeks, they never replied back. I sent them more messages asking is there was a problem, but nothing. I later saw them bump their post in the forum, so it's not like they never came to the site again or something.

It was sad because we were very near to a point where we could have closed the story in a satisfying manner. We could've probably finished it in just a few more paragraphs. I would've prefered if they'd sent me a message after we were finished saying something like "thank you for your time, see ya!" instead of just... disappearing...

I don't think I'm a bad writer, but I'm not perfect either. I would've liked to know what was it that they didn't like, if it was my fault so I could try to get better or something else.

Later, I contacted another user who had a suspiciously similar list of likes/dislikes to my previous RP partner and I asked them if they wanted to RP. They never replied. Now, I'm not acussing them of being an alt-account of the other user, but it was weird. This was months ago. I saw that user bump their post a few times, too.

I just wanted to have a good time. I'm not even angry about it, just disappointed. Honestly I'd be really happy if they contacted me again to finish the RP, I don't even need an explanation. But I doubt it.

I haven't RP'd since then. Maybe I just have bad luck.

It's par the course that some people will just go silent for no reason. Sometimes Real Life™ happens and the scene just has to stop, like sudden internet cut off or worse. Sometimes people are just shy, timid, nervous, awkward, or whatever about saying no or mentioning they didn't enjoy a scene, so they'll go to great lengths to avoid saying something that might offend (I've even witnessed someone deleting an alt just so they didn't have to turn someone down for a scene). Some are just forgetful (I can be bad at responding to play by posts consistently, which is why I usually RP in real time). Some people just get busy and lose or miss your post in the shuffle. And then, of course, there are the selfish jerks who are just looking to get their rocks off and, once they've had their fun, will dump you and move on to the next regardless of you've had your fun yet or not.

And then there's the complete enigmas who'll go silent with no seemingly good explanation. Case in point: one person I used to RP with regularly suddenly stopped responding to me and a friend one day. She still logs into the chat frequently, and still has my friend's profile linked on her profile for relationships and stuff, but she absolutely does not reply to us. It's the weirdest thing and I have no idea what I did, if anything to do it.


But yeah, you unfortunately probably hit one of the "dud" players. There may be some legit reasons, there may not, no way to tell unless they tell you. Personally I'd just make note of who they are, move on, and try looking some more. There are some very excellent and friendly players out there, the trick is finding them. And if you get lucky you might make some really good friends out of a few of them.

Mainly ditching. If there's something you don't like about the Rp and want it to stop just tell me. Or if you have to take a long absence it can be helpful to say so.
Being told what's wrong means it can be fixed or changed for next time, and telling me you're done with the RP means I'm not going to check every day to see if you have a post for me to respond to. It's not like I'm going to be mad if you want to stop playing pretend eating each other with me on the internet.

Not that many tbh. May be cause I stay far, far away from open chat rooms and have to deal with far less randos as a result. I only get approaches when I set up a seeking ad, and people tend be more civilized in longer responses. With that said...

- First person. Hate it. Reeks of self-insert and gives me the impression you're just doing this to whack off.

- Implementing one of my strict dislikes. I don't have a long list of hard no's and the few I have you could be bothered to remember. Makes you look inconsiderate at best and outright trolling at worst.

Poofing rightfully aggravates a lotta folks, personally it does not bother me that much. Even if I don't get closure to an RP, at the very least I still got some writing practice and brainstorming for future ideas outta it.


edit: Oh wait, add that one defintiely.

Don't ever take control of my character's actions, or force specific looks on them. That's like yanking the controller away and telling me I'm playing the game wrong. Extremely rude.

prey only people
or specifically people who say they are a switch and then are always playing a prey, and when you ask they get crummy about it.

people who stop the rp when it's getting to good parts or people who straight up just vanish! it's okay when they have real reasons as to why they cant rp. Breaks are fine with me, but dang when they stop at a good part it's the worst for me. : (

people who judge the kind of vore I like. I recall in the past I would get in pm chats with people just for them to ditch me or say something snarky just because I'm not particularly into digestion all the time, or I won't let them have sexual interaction with my character, or that I'm not into other vores like breast vore.

People who try and guilt trip you into doing their kink or playing as a character they specifically want. I'm big into playing male preds, monster or furry preds, and the occasional humanoid [I like using harpies, nagas, and slime people], but i've had so many people just try and force me to be something like a giantess or even tell me "female only pred please" like what you like, but it's never enjoyable for me ever.

first person rping. It's just kinda uncomfy for me, feels self insert, not my thing since I usually never play myself in rps.

god modding preds or preds that eat prey almost immediately with no chase or any buildup.

Not a deal breaker but still annoying when someone agree's to RP with you but contributes nothing to the premise or any ideas and does not even pretend to try. Like if you ask them if they have any ideas for the scenario and all they reply with is "Nope" and want you to set it up all on your own. Part of the reason I like RPing with people is so we can combined our imaginations and perspectives on a certain idea or kink and come up with unique concepts for it to act out so it is really lame when the other person in the RP offers nothing like that.

Trying to guilt you into role-playing when you don't feel like it/don't have time.

Trying to trick, or sneak, stuff into a RP that you have asked not to include.

(For example, trying to turn a willing Vore RP into unwilling, or vice versa, despite agreeing beforehand on which it would be).

Trying to say a non-perma RP is perma after it's done, despite not having discussed perma at all (and having a huge note on my profile saying I don't do perma).

Trying to turn a non-fatal RP into a fatal RP mid way.

...

Really. Any attempt at changing the tone, purpose, or outcome of a RP once it's already started, without my consent. I hate that. If you wanna do X, ask me to do X, don't ask me to do Y and try and trick me into doing X.

This happens to me a lot, and it's rather annoying. I do have very open preferences, but I'm not always in the mood for every single specific thing. So if I go into a scene expecting to do one thing, and you try to turn it into another on a whim, that is going to really piss me off. Doubly so if you try to trick me into doing something I have explicitly stated I don't/won't do.

Another thing that pisses me off is repeatedly asking me to do something after I say no.

I don't mind being politely asked. Even if you ask me to do something that's outside my normal preferences... asking is still okay if you're polite about it.

Asking again, and again, and again, ad nauseam, OTOH, is not cool.

If I say "no CV today" I mean "no CV today." If I say "no perma ever" I mean "no perma ever."

If you come and ask for the same thing over and over, I'm gonna assume you don't care about my preference, or about me, and I'm gonna get annoyed.
