December EMP Meme

ENABLEMEPLZ

meme goes up on the last Saturday of every month

FOR GAME ADS:

Put an ad up with the characters / crew / pairings / fetish you want for your game under the correct game header. This meme is primarily going to be focused on DWRP games but IJ and LJ games are allowed.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding (no font size > size 4 or 3 "big" tags, no banners, no blinking text, no obnoxious tables, no sparklies, no pictures). Use all the colors you like, but please remember 3 "big" tags is the limit and that's only for headers or title text rather than for all the text in an ad.

FOR GAME QUESTIONS:

RPers interested in a game can create a header for the game and ask questions about that game that aren't easy to find on faqs, such as the actual pace vs. what's listed/what kind of plots are run/if the game leans more towards plotty or slice of life/if a game leans more towards network or logs, etc. Both anon questions and anon answers are welcome in this section just like in the rest of the meme.

This thread is not for speaking about wank or drama in a game. There are anoncomms that exist for that. This thread is specifically for general questions about a game that rpers want to get perspective on from players already in the game. Answers can be slightly negative (such as saying app response is slow or that the plots are repetitive or similar things) but this should at least be worded politely. Unnecessary vitriol, any mention of personal drama or wank, or mod teams/individual mods/players being singled out, will be frozen and/or deleted.

FOR CHARACTER ADS:

Put up an ad about the characters you are offering. For PSL/1-on-1 ads, there is a separate subthread but for character ads for games, post directly to the meme post. Others will comment to you with the games/casts they want you to join.

There is a "Find a Castmate" section, where you can talk about a cast you play in at a game, and try to lure people to join it. Not all games post to the meme or have a "wanted" section, so players that want to tempt people to their cast on their own can use this section for it. Please format this the same as the PSL/1-on-1 section, where you post the canons in your subject. For the actual text of the ad you must use the "Find a Castmate" form provided at the bottom of this post so that these ads don't get huge. When listing who's currently in a cast, please do this in sentence form (with commas) rather than in list form.

ABSOLUTELY NO obnoxious coding, with the same rules as the Game Ads Section above.

If you're recommending a game to someone, try to match your suggestion to their needs. Try not to recommend the same game to every single ad, either.

The non-con didn't bother me as much as the abuse. I like playing out non-con with trusted RP partners, but the abuse is a little triggering. Though I gotta admit, the drug scene was pretty damn hot.

Like Virus and Trip's bad ending, huh? That was hella fucked up. I'm curious about Reconnect, but not sure I want to watch all of the routes. You play Noiz from the original, right? Are there a lot of differences for each individual character?

Also, if this is getting lengthy, we can move over to Plurk, if you'd like. I'm not confident joining a game just yet, but I would like to try memes or PSLs. I ship Koujaku with Aoba, and also Noiz... just not at the same time.

Yeah my bigger issues are with the abuse itself. I have a hard time enjoying a route with that much abuse perpetrated by the character the main protag eventually winds up pursuing later on. Just. No. I get that it shows just how forgiving Aoba is but jfc. Non-con for me depends a lot on the context and how it's handled. Like with Noiz here, he's not malicious about it, but boy did his long history of being mistreated by people who didn't care about his wishes give him a shaky grasp on the ethics of consent that results in some very facepalm-inducing "No, stop that you moron!" moments that are interesting to play out with the right character/player.

Yeah, ViTri's bad end is.... I can handle Virus's half of it, but Trip's has some elements that I find very squicky. Yeah, I took Noiz from when he and Aoba got to that storage room in Oval Tower to escape from the security Allmate. The only real differences between original and r:c would be the level of character growth they would have, and how much we got to see of that boyfriend during their good end. Good End Noiz we got to see some of, but post-Germany Noiz gets fleshed out much more in R:C. Mink and Clear's good ends didn't show us much of how they'd grown until you get to R:C. And then there's the drama CDs. I've only listened to the Noiz one, but we got to see Aoba and Noiz interacting with both Noiz's little brother Theo and their elitist parents. It was good at showing both Noiz's growth while still showing just how abysmal he still is when dealing with some of his issues.

I don't mind continuing here, but if you want to move it over to plurk, you can find me at [plurk.com profile] inthetatras.

Stockholm Syndrome, right? It was pretty well done, and I think they're ballsy for showing a couple like that, though I don't favor that kinda thing. At least it's somewhat accurate. I can definitely see Noiz doing dub con and possibly non-con, but hey, he's not as violent as Mink. It's justifiable, whereas with Mink, I had a hard time connecting why his tragedy made him think it was okay to beat and rape people.

Ah, I really like Germany Noiz. He looks damn fine in a suit. I was hoping to see some insight into his relationship with Theo in his ending. Hell, with his family in general. I feel like we don't get enough of Koujaku either. I wanted to see his interaction with his mother and father, before the slaughter.

Either place is fine! I'm not on Plurk too often, but I sent a request. I'm Tiger5913. You've got me more interested in watching Reconnect, haha.
zunge: (but I'm sorry I don't pray that way)

Mink's route and Re:Connect do explain things a bit - it's not that it made him think it was "okay" but rather that he was willing to do whatever he thought was necessary to fulfill his goals, knowing full well how awful those things were and acknowledging them as such. He actually winds up being very hard on Aoba for continuing to pursue him so persistently. Like with you, not my thing, but there are worse ways they could have handled it.

You'll like the drama CDs, then. It's confirmed that Noiz had had a good relationship with Theo and doesn't resent him. It's just that the 'rents locked him up when they were really young, so it's understandable that a kid even younger than Noiz at the time (I headcanon them as being 6 and 4 then) wouldn't have been able to do much, and kids that young in such a strict household won't have the developed mindset that someone 10-15 years older might have.

I'll take the rest of this over to Plurk then.
