I don’t usually get involved in this kind of stuff, as I honestly have no patience for it— but I have some things I wanna say.
First off, there’s a huge difference between ic drama that happens on its own and intentionally starting shit to make your character the center of attention. Repeatedly. Ic drama is okay— in moderation. After a while, it’s just draining and not fun anymore.
Second, Kimi already said most of what needs to be said, but the bottom line is that roleplay is meant to be fun. This is a hobby. We don’t get paid for pouring hours of research and thought into our characters. Everyone had their own reasons for coming to this community, whether it be escapism, a love of history, just for fun, etc.
Don’t make roleplay a chore for someone. Be kind and treat others the way you want to be treated. And if someone’s making you feel like shit, tell them. No one deserves to be put down for the sake of drama, whether it’s in or out of character.
There’s no excuse for being cruel to people. If you’re bullying someone for the sake of drama, you should be ashamed of yourself.
