Annoyance: I find it really insulting when people tell you not to publish your anon hate because it’s triggering to them. It’s in my askbox! How do you think I feel? Do you think I’M not triggered by it?

What do the admins think about roleplaying a real person, living or dead? Eg. Actors/actresses, authors, politicians, scientists, etc.

I personally think that it is… odd. I’ve never really been one for it. I’ve never done it and I’ve never followed anyone that RPs as a non-fictional character. I have a current partner that at one time RPed as a deceased, non-fictional character and while it is nothing I hold against them, if they were to return to that account, I would not pick up a thread with them. 

To me, it gets a little too close to those guys that dress up like Elvis in Vegas for their entire life and then when they get drunk or senile, they assure people that they really are Elvis. No one really knows who these people really are. You are RPing your version of the person so in that respect, you must be sure that you are RPing basically a character. 

I would worry that I would offend someone that personally knew the person or the person themselves. I really like Vincent Price. I’ve been a fan my entire life. I adopted a lot of his humor, likes, personal interests, etc. but I would never decide to RP as him because I could see say his daughter or grandchildren taking offence to it and the last thing I would ever want to do is offend someone that means so much to me.

I agree with Cheshire, it’s just a bit creepy.  Plus, unlike a fictional character, who you can be reasonably confident about, a real life person, even a long dead historical figure, are going to have flaws and traits that aren’t always well known.  Too much of a risk of insulting someone if things go wrong.  I’d personally steer clear of playing a real person.

Something I’m annoyed with as far as FCs go—aside from being annoyed by common FC choice in general—is how people will feel the need to actually change a character’s face to something not remotely like it to match an ethnicity. Sometimes it’s the name, sometimes its the affiliation, but really? Why? And when asked, you’re given the answer “this character was whitewashed”. Nevermind that there might be a hundred reasons for a character to be white and not in America/Europe, sheesh.

I’m going to miss scoundreloftheseas's Edward Kenway so much because the mun is switching to an Anne Bonny blog. The Edward is perfection and the mun needs to know this! They practically bring him to life through words and their writing is awesome!

I love deathbecomesyou's OC, the mun is an absolute doll as well. The OC is beautifully written, personality and description is perf.

Scoundreloftheseas is by far the best Edward Kenway roleplayer I have seen. The way she describes him and the way the mun literally brings him to life makes me excited to read the rps! Sadly she won’t be rping much on that blog, but I still love it!
