If I can be completely honest here guys, and ok, this maybe kind out of the blue, but there's something I want to discuss.
We all know why we're here right? To ask/answer questions, develop our characters and make friends yeah? Well of course, we should all know this, I mean that's the point of an ask right?
Well see, there's something that I and many others notice that can not only be very aggravating to see, but to have happen personally and I want to bring it up.
Basically I want to discuss pairing, shipping, hitting on other oc's etc.
What it seems like is, a majority of this community has become where the second someone see's a new oc, or finds out someone is single, even when the admin is brand new, they jump at them, flirt with their oc, ask them out when the characters don't even know each other Simply for the sake of wanting to get their oc with someone
Guys, I love shipping, slash, pairing up as much as the next person, we all love it, (I mean hell I entered a contest to make a girlfriend for someone, but I didn't think I'd win, and if I didn't I planned on using that oc anyway) but not everyone appreciates it when you immediately try to go out with their character just because you want to be able to ship, that's not what we're here for. It is fun to have your oc with someone, it really is, but even like a real relationship that forms, you have to give it time, get your oc to know the other, unless your oc is the flirting kind ok, sure, you can have them flirt, but don't be grossly obvious and blunt about it and do you really have to do it with every girl you see?
Now if you totally hit it off at the beginning, you mutually agree that you like this pairing and it wined's up happening pretty fast? Well then it'll happen, but try not and push it cause it's not often that happens.
If the other admin and their oc don't react how you want them to, don't keep pushing it, it isn't fair to them.
Okay I can't tell you what to do, but at least take into consideration how the other person might feel, maybe you'll find someone who wants to immediately get their oc with somebody like you do but come on, your oc can't only be about shipping and being with someone, that doesn't really develop them and then what does it accomplish?
And don't get me started on the 17 year old oc's who are getting hitched and having kids, I mean like woah, what happened to this being about adventure time lol.
Then not to mention when two oc's are even seen together in a pic/ask and there's no shipping intention what so ever, the majority of the comments wined up being 'SHIP, I SHIP IT, SHIP IT SO HARD' which isn't necessarily a problem, but some might find it annoying because there was no intention of that.
And one other thing, if you're going to decide that you want your oc to crush on another, at least have the common courtesy to ask the admin of that oc if it's alright, sometimes it's bothering cause you go and do that and if that person has to eventually turn you down or they get tired of you flaunting about saying how your oc likes their's, well you're the one who decided to do that on your own, and no one likes to be turned down you know? They may even say yes but nothing will come of it, it's just at least nice to ask.
Just wanted to get that off my chest, if you don't agree, you don't agree and you don't even take it into consideration, just something to think about.
