Well, an online friend of mine, just recently posted a blog, about RPing and character driven stuff and such, and it got me thinking. Cause I do that a lot. I'm a thinker, a deep thinker. Just in my nature. Anyways, it got me thinking about RP and stuff. And yes, I'll go ahead and spill it right out there, loud and proud, that I'm an RPer. On twitter. I tweet as Admiral Piett from Star Wars. Do I realize that this is nerdy? Yeah. Do I care? No, not really. It just makes me me.
I think I RP as an escape. Because I can tweet situations and stuff that I don't normally get to. I can be nerdy, and it's perfectly ok. And I can tell ya that I've made some pretty awesome friends that I'd pretty much do anything for. And of course we've had our fair share of drama there. But that doesn't matter. But I mean, I can go on twitter, and I can RP a situation, that I know I wouldn't normally be in. Like...going after a Spic Syndicate, and accidentally shoot their ship early, accidentally shoot one of my friends ship, and then I end up running to some random place in the galaxy. It just...makes me feel good, and makes me feel like I can escape from my daily problems, just relax, and have fun! That and I just love the group of people I RP with. They're a group of people that I can get close to and just goof off, and it doesn't matter that we're from different places, just that we're here, having fun, tweeting our love of Star Wars.
And that's why I RP
