Seriously, though... Someone please explain this to me. I don't just mean the people who do libertine RP's and are "submissive only" in sexual situations and whatnot, but I mean people that only want to play passive, overly-submissive characters in day-to-day situations-- that don't want to make decisions or act on their own or...whatever. I get maybe having ONE character like that, but when it's noted that is the ONLY type of character someone plays, I just can't... Like, my mind breaks trying to comprehend that. What the hell is the appeal of playing that same character over and over and over again? Someone may make a point about a person just being passive IRL - so that's what they're comfortable with, but there are waaaaayyy too many people with those "restrictions" on their characters/writing for that to be the case. What confuses me the most is that many of these writers label themselves as "Advanced," yet they do next to nothing, and expect a "dominant" partner to pull the RP along with little help. I don't think there's anything wrong with allowing someone else to conceive a plot, but when a player just refuses to contribute...it becomes tiring. How is that advanced? While I've encountered this sort of thing on every RP site I've been on, it seems to be quite prevalent here -- and I am just sort of baffled. I'm inclined to think it's because of all the anime-related things, but I don't know and I don't want to blame one genre for something like this. Is anyone else frustrated by this? ._.
