Okay. So I joined Iwaku sometime last year at the request of my friend (Who had recently quit and allowed his unused RPCs to be reincarnated under my rule). I had been Rping since I was maybe 10. Not gonna' lie. That was around the same time I discovered hentai and began doing a lot of REALLY messed up things in Rps. But over the time, my tastes matured and RPing through texting after Myspace went to shit just stopped being appealing anymore. I couldn't pack in much into a text message (My post length back then was like: Whatsisname looked to her in amusement "Yer perty"). And then I started looking for new ways to Rp. I eventually used Yahoo answers to find a partner or two, who would RP with me via Skype, Yahoo Messenger (RIP) and, at one point, even Oovoo (Forgotten forever). After my partners, for various reasons, gave up on me (One had a fiancee that didn't like her even texting men that weren't relatives, another tried making our friendship more sexual than just RPing, and another person had quit), I was alone for quite a while. I eventually started acting out my RP ideas through Single-Player LARPing. Yes, it's pathetic. But I had no choice. I had all of these creative juices flowing through me. I must have had about seventy characters in my head at once. Then it happened. I made a group of friends at school. Which, for a fat, introverted, ex-pothead, nerdy boy like me, was a VERY big deal. We would play silly card games like "Ay, dark overlord", or cards against humanity, even UNO at one point. The most fun activity we did, however, Was Ninja battles. It was based on Naruto, but we added other anime combat styles as well. Basically, we'd all sit at the table, get a turn list going based on a dice roll, and we'd make certain movements, sticking to one attack per move. Whoever won would have bragging rights (and for puppet users, the corpses off all the fallen enemies) and we'd keep doing that for days. A single battle, depending on the strategy involved, could last from an hour, to several days. But then, I moved. We tried doing one-on-one texting battles with each other, but it wasn't as fun without the whole group at once. Eventually, I lost contact with my friends. Luckily for me, I had the internet. I began playing a whole lot of MMORPG games, making up stories for my characters as I played. Also, Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Skyrim, and Dragon Age Origins helped me curb my creative interests for a while. Eventually, my friend (Aforementioned quitter) messaged me saying "Hey, you should join this site, I've been using it for a little while and I've had some good RPs going [link inserted here]. So I joined. I got a slow start, since I was writing out all my RPCs into Character sheets, as well as being intimidated by the amount of vastly skilled players on here. Eventually, though, I made some RP friends. We RPed on Skype and on here until eventually, I moved again. This time, I didn't have internet for several months. I only recently got internet back maybe two months ago. But, since I've been back, my RP list, as well as my skill level, have skyrocketed. I've gone from only being able to handle 2-3 Rps at once, with post lengths restricted to a couple sentences, to an intermediate RPer who can type 1-2 paragraphs based on how much needs to be said, and I can handle several Rps at once. Recently, I've also began putting myself out there, joining in on discussions, and putting out a few of my own. I've had decent conversations with people like @Minibit, @Lea, and @Diana . I'm breaking out of my introverted shell, putting myself out there to talk to new people. And honestly, I place 99.99% of the thanks to you, Iwaku. Thank you for giving me a vast amount of new people who I can share great experiences with, even if it is in a made-up world, residing on immobile text on a screen. I'd also like to personally thank my current partners; @LunaValentine "Twin Dragons" and "Gemstones" @Second Best "Dragon, Unchained!" @Ghosty "Exorcist with a Secret" @Clear "This School's Full of Demons" @Austyn_cerys "DNA" @Oyoa "Secrets of the Wolf Clan" @Lewi "Fireborn" And @Aleta "The Memories that Torment us" And @Hana, I await our future RP ^^ Please, everyone. Share with me your Iwaku Love story :D Edit: I forgot, I've never played Cards Against Humanity. It was "Sorry I haven't Playtested This" a very odd game that can literally end in two turns.
