Friendship/Roleplay Guidelines & Reminders
Friendship/Roleplay Guidelines & Reminders
These are not meant to be taken in a disdainful manner. They are simply here to ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience.
1.) Be Respectful
"Treat others the way you want to be treated."
That's super elementary, right? One of the golden rules of childhood. I'll treat you with respect. Be courteous enough to offer it back, yeah? Unless you get down on insulting one another. Whatever floats your boat - Or sinks it. I won't judge - It won't be tolerated, but I won't judge. Either way, I will understand if there are things you're not comfortable with. I will acknowledge that and not push any boundaries. Please return the favor.
2.) Roleplay Is Separate From Real Life
I enjoy making friends and socializing. If we grow to be ride-or-die homies, that's great! But, please keep in mind that I am not my character and the relations within the fictional world we create doesn't carry over outside. There is a line that divides the two. I am the VOICE behind the CHARACTER. I'm not the character itself. I will have Leilani speak within quotation marks, if it's not in quotes - That's me, son.
3.) My Character Is Romantically Unbound
Leilani is a multi-ship character. She is untamable outside of the roleplay because YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH BADGES TO TRAIN HER. Haha. Just playin'. Really though, she isn't on the market to be claimed or taken. I will NOT allow her to be restricted by the limitations of being chained down. A connection between our characters is welcomed within a storyline, as long as it remains there. She will treat your character as her lover if the romance genre is activated and agreed upon.
4.) Patience Is A Virtue
I'm unable to reply at consistent times, I'm whisked away by the world's whimsies whenever it chooses. I DON'T appreciate being rushed for replies or edits. There are times where my responses are instantaneous or are delayed for days - Maybe even weeks. For this, I do send out my apologies in advance for the lack of speed, but this is something I'd like you to know before we jump in so we can avoid disappointing each other. Ending the roleplay or putting it on an indefinite pause is a possibility if that suits our needs.
5.) Edits Are Displayed For Fun
All of the pictures in Leilani's Albums were edited by me or created with a website. If I have the opportunity, I'll make edits for our characters together. I don't do it often because it takes me some time to actually perform the task. I'll only do an edit of our characters if we have a roleplay going or if I feel like we've bonded somehow. I usually choose the picture to use since I can size it up and see if it's possible for me to work on. If you happen to find one for us, you're welcome to show me. Please understand that there are some pictures I just cannot do. My skills are decent, though I lack the proficiency to warrant expertise.
6.) We're Not Sparring
Leilani can fight. However, her Puppeteer (Pssst! That's me!), doesn't like to roleplay sparring. If she is fighting it is because the two of you are taking down an enemy together, you want/need her protection, an enemy is inserted to progress the plot, or she has to protect herself. I don't like back and forth fighting with another character or big one-on-one battles. It makes me uncomfortable. If fighting happens, it won't be dragged out and will end as soon as I get the chance. If you try to press it on me, it will turn into something incredibly silly and might end in our ruined friendship.
7.) We're Not Porking
Despite having a romantic relation with Leilani in a Roleplay, her Puppeteer (That's me again!), will not partake in Erotica. After some heated moments/tension gets heavy between our characters, I will be panning the scene out in a silhouette fashion, suggesting that an intimate encounter had taken place. They are now past that and onto other things. Once again - If you try to press it on me, it will turn into something incredibly silly and might end in our ruined friendship.
8.) Let's Play Nice
The common standards of all roleplay aspects do still apply. Any forms of godmodding, powerplaying, lorebreaking, metagaming, and forced retcon will be frowned upon so hardcore that it'll take the saying "turn that frown upside down" to a whole new level. We're here to have fun!

They may sound strict and a bit wordy, but as long as we go about communicating properly - You'll hardly notice they're there!
