| in truth very few things annoy me anymore but I recently read this legendarily bad roleplay porn thread, and while I started off being offended by its content [weird torture porn threesome] I ended by being offended by its form ["I COULD FIX THIS", I screamed inside myself, poring over block after block of text describing unhygienic uses of blood]

| My peeve from the days I used to roleplay: that person who wants you to help them write their novel. They have such a specific and particular vision for this novel that they will dictate everything about your character and the setting and how every interaction goes. You are not welcome to bring your own thoughts, ideas, vision, twists, or anything else to the table. They will often hem and haw politely before shooting down your every contribution. In truth this person should be writing solo because they probably have a decent concept, but probably they don't have the internal motivation, so they look to you, dear roleplayer, to drive a story that is not in any way your own.
The opposite of this, the "literally no opinion whatsoever" is also bad, but at least with them you generally end up writing something with your fingerprints on it at least.
