Every one of us gave our characters weaknesses and/or faults. IMO, these are the fun bits to RP. Also, I truly think it's important to RP them at whatever pace we think is right.
Some of us are functioning alcoholics (Gertie), some are addicted to weed, still others self harm to cope (Gertie), and also there are some who may commit atrocities while shape-shifted that they struggle to deal with, and on and on.
It can be challenging to RP some of these less palatable traits, especially when we're just getting to know each other. However, I'd love to come up with ways to do so with your .
I want to officially go on record and say that I'm on board with helping anyone's character tap into their more deviant side. And would love to do so myself. Whether it takes hold and we continue down a path of destruction or we find some way to heal, is immaterial IMO. It's all part of the story building.
I like factions, but more so rival factions that challenge each other. In that vein, I'd love to create two warring/rival Covens and I'm happy to be a part of the aberrant one. I have ideas for how cult-like we could be!
I know that it can be hard to separate IC from OOC, but I believe the more we do so, the more fun and intricate this story we're all weaving together can become. I also believe we've all been RP'ing long enough to be really good at it. IMO, it's one of our communities biggest strengths.
Just my two cents :)
