Okay, SO, if you’re wondering where the hell I’ve been for like…the last more-than-six months, it’s been here.
Let me preface by saying that around late January, I was feeling really depressed about the state of comics. I was reaching a point where I felt like I was screaming into an abyss and that nothing was ever going to change.
Then I got an invite to this group. I was skeptical, because I haven’t RP’d since…god, maybe 2008? I also occasionally stumbled upon indie comics-based RP blogs and, honestly, I wasn’t quite impressed. Single-line answers, no longer written responses, limited character opportunities—I didn’t see the point.
However, I saw that the creators/mods of the group were not only offering players the opportunities to work with and around issues of gender, race, and class—they were ACTIVELY interested in seeing these changes and how they’d play out. I joined, as an AU character, just for something to do after my night classes.
What I expected to be a very small, minuscule blip in my life that I’d get tired of quickly has turned into a deep love. After seeing how much comic book companies fuck it up, it’s nice to be able to come to a safe space and work out better/healthier alternatives.
Seriously, it’s a really minimal commitment if you happen to be extremely busy (I’m PACKED this semester between work, school, and other responsibilities but it’s not hard at all to keep up), and it’s a chance to write your favorite characters the way YOU want. I know y’all are some progressive comic-loving darlings, so seriously, consider joining. It’s a lot of fun and I literally feel like I’ve only GROWN from the experience. I’m a better writer, thinker, and even a better artist. The OOC group is extremely supportive and the multitude of characters allows for amazing combinations and conversations you’d never see in comics.
