It really bugs me when someone will say they’re closed for threads only to start making posts for one person just because they ship with them. If you’re doing that, it doesn’t seem like you’re closed for threads. It seems like all you care about is your one ship and not about any of the threads people have waited months for replies to.
I don’t know how to break this to you lightly, confessor…but you’re not entitled to anything.
You can be upset if a person is answering other people and not you, sure. You can be upset when they say they’re closed to new threads, but they decide to make new ones…but so what?
Just because you’re upset, it doesn’t mean you’re right.
We all play favorites as an RPer, just not everyone is willing to admit it. And so what? We all have favorite friends, and things like that in real life, what’s the difference if I have favorite partners that I make exceptions to the, “I’m not making new threads” rule.
If I really want to RP with you, than I’ll get to it eventually. If you’re going to be obnoxious about it, and complain to me about not being fair, guess who I’m not going to RP with in the future?
I will confess I’ve had to close threads because I have 3 characters and sometimes my drafts can be overwhelming. And then I get a terrible plot bunny that won’t leave me alone or let me focus on those drafts until I end up writing a new thread, even though I know what a terrible idea it is.
Also it’s quite possible those two people are long term partners and plotted for that thread long before that rper decided to close new threads or they simply have more inspiration for a particular plot or just have better chemistry with that character that, again, brings in those annoying plot bunnies.
The point is—there are many non selfish or dickish reasons someone might do it. And even if they do only care for that ship. They do this for their own personal enjoyment. They don’t own anyone anything. And yes there are those partners we will show favoritism towards. They’re the ones who put up with all our crap, wait weeks and sometimes months for a reply and jump in to all the crazy plot bunnies. They fucking deserve it.
Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
you didn’t even say goodbye!
