since the ask box character limit doesn’t allow for it
Did my ask even arrive completely? It was quite a lot of text and I don’t know if you got everything (over 600 words in total).
Pff I don’t even have the nationality in common with Tenenbaum anymore. I felt pretty close to the character, so what? Not only because of the apparent nationality but because some of her… points of view that became clear during the game seemed to apply to me as well. At times I felt like I could really understand her, because in a weird way I shared things with her - as they came across in the game that is. Nothing with my headcanon.
That was the reason for me being kind of angry/sad/in despair when my headcanon crumbled into a dusty mess. So I am an excited fan, so what? A lot of fans are more crazy about the characters than I am. I at least try to fix headcanon and in character somewhat together.
What about all the fangirls saying how gay those guys from Supernatural are together? It’s literally all over my dash if I don’t use tumblr saviour. I don’t watch the show, so I can’t tell you the names, but it’s basically the same, just that they are not roleplaying them.
I’m saying you cannot keep Tenenbaum in-character because that’s exactly what you are doing.
I say I CAN keep her in character. You cannot prove me wrong until I have not been given the chance to prove that I can or can’t. And prove that I can play her in character on the meme? On the CoW? Then people complain it’s not cracky enough. When did people start caring about what we’re doing when it came to plot and in-characterness?
The only thing I have is what I wrote as a fanfiction, which is not me roleplaying but still me trying to get a good grip on the character with the knowledge I had at the time.
And in case you forgot: When I started playing Tenenbaum she wasn’t interested in anyone, then randomness with Lamb happened, then I started playing with Byass and Fronk so the pairing Fontaine/Tenenbaum somehow happened. And until the novel we didn’t even know if that had really happened or if the Paparazzi was just imagining things. Oh spoiler, sorry, but it’s not like it’s anything too important from the novel, barely a page.
And it actually evolved into the Langford/Tenenbaum direction via RP. It’s not that we decided to let that happen from one day to another. It was purely coincidental. Maybe I shipped them before, but I had never planned to ship them in the CoW. I hadn’t even talked to Langford in person in IRC when that had happened.
You and Langy? You only talk about what huge lesbians Tenenbaum and Langford are.
If it came across that we think it’s canon then I’m sorry, but I don’t think it is. It’s my headcanon that I enjoy roleplaying. Weather you think that’s an excuse or not. And since 90% of it is actually happening in our own IRC channel I don’t know why it’s even bothering you. I hardly join whoreshock the last weeks and months because I no longer feel really comfortable there, so it can’t be that much time that we talk about the pairing.
But if it makes you happy I’ll delete all my MirrorTenenbaum and other not-canon-Tenenbaum fanart from my tumblr, Jesus.
I was just enjoying things and a hobby I developed over the last fifteen months and a shipping I developed over the last eleven months.
You know at times the horny-lesbians-RP with Langford (aside of Langford herself) was the only thing that made me happy and kept me going when my mother was in the hospital and after she died. For a while it was literally the only purpose I felt I had. But since people could assume I’m pulling a “pity-me-my-mother-died” move I’ll stop rambling here.
Hm, I don’t know if I want to continue rping the character at all now, because apparently all I do with her is completely wrong. Might as well ditch her completely then.
Edit: And nice to see how many people liked your post. Why couldn’t they have told me that it got “a little out of hand” before it got so “extreme”………
