OOC personalities, completely. I can RP almost anything with someone I like, and whose general tastes run close to mine. Of course, I don't like just *anyone*...
I've also been experimenting with several people I don't know that well, because that's what newbies should do, I think, on the basis that they seem sane enough and share a few interests with me.
And if I get to suggest a new topic... (if not, ignore this)How do you know when a(n) RP/story's really done?
I tend to feel as though I have to bring everything to a neat conclusion; either irretrievably tragic; comic and thus lacking in further conflict; or something with some weight and meaning, at the least... I have trouble with open-ended endings, though they seem so popular in fiction--and I have trouble with RPs that drag on forever, which seems to be popular in RP-land. If I try to leave something open, I'll just end up continuing the RP far longer than I should, because I'm in my comfort zone, rather than begin something new--and I hate that.
Clearly, I don't
know when an RP or story is really done. Incidentally--is it aN RP or a RP, since it's pronounced as if it begins with vowel? An ahr-pee. Uh ahr-pee sounds... wrong.
