This is a really weird letter to have to write to you guys, but I felt the need to write it anyway. I want to make amends with anybody who may be upset with me, or Manno, or Georgi for saying an official goodbye.
First, I’d like to say that Georgi did NOT leave because Manno and I left, and I really don’t want you guys to think that. It’s not my place to say why she left, but I promise it was for personal, good reasons that aren’t my business to share.
As I’m sure a lot of have been told by now, a few of us have moved to a new roleplay. Something was said on the ooc blog, and some of the old NAHPRP members had a hunch that you guys weren’t happy with us for moving to a different RP.
Please don’t be personally insulted that some of us moved to another RP together. We never intended to hurt anybody or cause tension, or make anybody want to “punch us in the face” (assuming that was directed at us).
I really want to set one thing straight: Myself and Manno did not, in any way, mean to insult you all with our goodbye letters. We weren’t trying to say you were illiterate or that you guys never ever wrote - there are headcannons on the dash quite often, and I loved to read them. I, personally, left because I didn’t personally get many opportunities to para. I’ve been told it’s because I wasn’t active enough and that’s why I never saw them on the dash, and that may very well be true, making it even more clear that it was probably best I left.
Alexis, this is kind of directed specifically towards you. I never, ever wanted to insult you with my letter. You’ve created a wonderful RP, and I’ll never forget it. You’ve been nothing but the nicest person to me. When Mr. Commerson died, you allowed me on a hiatus without question. When I told you about my cousin, you were extremely understanding, despite the fact that I never forewarned you. I would never, ever want to insult you.
See, when I first started RPing, it was on GaiaOnline, and I wrote very short paras. After a year or two, I started joining more advanced RP’s as I got more confidence, and after a while, I was posting responses that had 5+ paragraphs, each with about 10-15 sentences. This is where I started to notice real improvement in my writing.
Though this RP was wonderful, I felt like I, personally, was growing a bit lazy, and that’s the reason I left. I’m trying to get back in the habit of constantly writing long, meaty paras, which is why when I stumbled across a brand new RP I saw it as an opportunity. It’s not because you guys “weren’t good enough” - not in the least. I’ll never forget you guys and how wonderful you were. It was because I was starting to feel like I was slacking personally. I got lazy. Sam and Alexis would post these long, beautiful headcannons, and I felt like I couldn’t match that anymore. THAT’S why I left. I wanted to go somewhere where I could get back in that habit, where I could gradually continue on with my writing. The only reason I didn’t do it here is because everybody had their RP partners for the most part, and it’s really hard to get out at this point.
Again, I’m really, really sorry if I insulted anybody when I left. It’s not what I meant to do at all.
I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me. I never meant for it to end up this way.
Forever and always,
This is one of the hardest messages I’ve had to write with you guys. I’ve talked to all of you about almost everything: I’ve sent a few of you messages about personal feelings about loss, and I’m pretty sure some of you probably know me as well if not better than a lot of people I know in real life. So, needless to say, this is a really, really hard thing to write.
I’m going to be leaving NAHPRP, for good this time. I’ve been with you all since October, and it was wonderful. This was the first time I played Rose on a tumblr RP. I’d played her before on other websites, but this one was a big thing for me, because I was always nervous about joining the “next gen” RPers on Tumblr. You were all so inviting, you made it easy to be here, and I loved that.
Since, I’ve joined as a number of characters. Some of you may not even have been here when I played Charlie or Adelle, and some of you may remember Genevieve? She was my Karen Gillan FC here. I play Dan and I just joined as Marlene. I was hoping Marlene would give me some inspiration to stay here, but I can’t.
I’m sorry to say it’s been this way for about three months, now.
I RP for two reasons.
The first reason has kept me here. You guys have been those wonderful friends, and I love you all for it. But the second reason is why I’m resigning.
Don’t get me wrong - you all are wonderful, wonderful people, and I love all your characters to bits, but it’s becoming a bit of a chore for me. I’m sorry, but I just don’t do one-liners. Action tags are not how I’m going to improve my writing, nor are head cannons.
It’s not that I don’t love you guys, or that I never loved this RP - but logging on and not getting anything productive from it is making me stressed, and it almost started to seem like a chore. Something most of you (except perhaps Manno, she knows how I am about paras…) don’t know about me is that I’m slightly OCD. I need to be doing something productive, and I need to be getting something out of it academically or emotionally or physically that can help me. I’m not really getting that here. I’m spending a lot of time doing… nothing, really. Rose says “hi” to a couple characters. Dan’s been talking to Effie. But that’s it.
I just don’t feel like I used to here, and I’m sorry for that. I really think it’s time for me to move on and write again, something I haven’t been doing because I’ve been focusing on characters that have been turning flat.
I keep getting nervous wondering who’s going to take my place as Rose, who’s going to be posting rather than me on the dash, and that’s just a weird thought. But, whoever it is, I’m sure he or she will love it here, and he or she will love you. I’m sure they’ll be perfect, and they’ll fit in a little better here.
I don’t go on my personal often anymore, but if you ever want to talk to me, send me a message:
On that note, I probably won’t be deleting Rose’s account. I don’t think I’ll have the heart to. I usually like to go through and reminisce on old role plays, and I put a lot of effort into developing Rose as best I could - which is one of the reasons I’m dropping her. I don’t want to ruin what I’ve built with her character. I’ll probably log on every now and again, and lurk on the dash. Feel free to send me a message whenever. I will never forget you guys. This RP has been going for nearly a year now - and I hope it will keep going for another.
I’ve queued some posts on the scrapbook, so even when I’m gone you’ll be seeing some from there.
I hope you all can forgive me.
Happy thought make me want to puke. No amount of flowers and bunny’s are going to make studying seem like fun Rosie. And really, how hard can it be? Just stride up to him give him some chocolate and snog him. He’ll be yours for life I guaranty it.
Alle, that’s no way to think! Try making it fun. Sing a song while studying for something.
For me? It’s not that easy. I don’t know, I get… flustered.
Because we want to have a good future. Think happy thoughts, Alle!
But… I want to, but things are just weird, now.
