Met my husband through table top roleplaying club. Met many close friends through same club. Can confirm.
spiderine? 51st? 53rdcenturyhero? copperbadge? The rest of you….can we confirm this?
HAHAHAHAAHHAHA JUST A LIL BIT. Also cluegirl, strangeselkie, and notmissmarple. I’m sure there are others I’m missing. Sometimes I think about the results of those networks, which in the past ten years include a marriage and a child, and just in the past year include forever homes for two kitties and a job for a friend.
I don’t think I would join another RP at this point in my life — the time commitment is too much, and let’s be real, no RP will ever beat the Askworld — but the right game at the right time can be life-changing.
Also Ianto isn’t dead, he’s in the 53rd century. *upraised fist*
Friendships… marriages… yeah, just a little.
I was looking at old pictures the other day, and I think I’m still friends or at least in touch with about 90% of the people I got close to when RP’ing. (many of whom are here on tumblr. HALO I LOVE YOU.)
milliways_bar peeps REPRESENT!
I filmed this in slow motion last year (before I knew better). I tossed bread up in the air at the park. This causes gulls to fly in a flock above you and swoop to catch each piece. It’s great fun. Sometimes they miss.

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.
Fuck your pretentious shit.
"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"
Fire bad! What science do!?!
I lived in the New York City area most of my life, where it was even money whether or not making eye contact with a stranger was grounds for justifiable homicide. What makes you think talking to J. Random Stranger In Front Of Me would be anything other than asking for disaster?
