'lo, ladies an' gents, boys an' girls, beasts an' buffoons. Lioncow here, askin' the tough questions and givin' the tougher answers, but at least doin' so with a smile. :3
So, I been hearin' the craziest stuff about dismal situations lately, and it seems to me right odd that anythin' should be dismal 'round here, given what that we've got this whole creative doin'-whut-ever-we-so-please-thank-ye-very-much-m'lad thing goin' on. But, y'can't please all the people all the time or you end up pleasin' none of the people none of the time, so's I was gon' peep things out 'round here and get a feel for the lay of the land, so to speak.
The question for today is the followin': Is RP borin' around here?
Now, the most honourable-and-drunk Chandra puts it thusly: "Really, nothing happens 90% of the time, and even when something does happen it's effectively meaningless because the status quo will just reassert itself with the dawning of a new day, so any effort spent becomes effort wasted."
('course, it wasn't quite so eloquent about it - there was much more cursin' and wavin' of hands, but I feel it's a point well made, all the same)
So, let's do a spot o' ponderin' here: Is that true, or does it just seem to be true because we're lookin' at the wrong places?
There's two bits to this bob, so let's chop 'em up and look at 'em one by one. The first is that question of nothin' happening. Now, I read logs from time to time because I ain't here too much, but it does seem as though people spend an awful lot of time in the OOC channel talkin' about what they could be talkin' about doin', which is a right pity as talking leads to meetings and meetings lead to suits and suits lead to TIES and then you get choked by your own clothin' and you die. So let's not, yeah? (Saying we did is optional)
The other thing is the matter of dynamicismness, which may or may not be an actual word, but it's one I'm'a use anyway, so deal. Some people like their RPs to be mostly static things, without all that much changin', but it does get borin' for those of us who've done it a few hundred thousand times before, but while this all sounds real major like, it really ain't - the distinction is one of how much the world *feels* dynamic, even if it ain't really. Now dynamic, aside from bein' a thing most companies like to see 'emselves as, is also a word referrin' to things moving, so let's find out how mobile things are, in the best way - by askin' questions on online message boards! ;3
So I'm'a ask y'all this: How open are y'all to changes in the RP - could war break out, friends become enemies, and enemies become lunch? Could the SDM get destroyed, and not in a "it's rebuilt by tomorrow because lolhax" sense, in a "now the residents need a new home" sense? Could the human village fall into a sinkhole because someone dug out all the ground beneath it? Could, if people don't pay enough attention and don't get off their collective arses to stop it, Gensoukyou's barrier pop like a soap bubble?
Y'all let me know, 'k?
