Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Merely Observing on Tue Mar 01, 2016 4:14 pm


My username is Merely Dreams, but you can call me Merely. As a teen, I repeatedly joined roleplay sites, overanalyzed everything, made <10 posts, all of which I was far too perfectionistic about, then abandoned the site out of self-consciousness. This time, I say no more: roleplaying should be an outlet to explore your musings, not a cage to consrict your thoughts. Thankfully, while maturing, I have learned to not care so much what others think. I'm looking forward to actually roleplaying instead of just thinking about it!

I would like to join some casual roleplays, probably mostly sci-fi, especially anything ending in -punk, or any sort of surreal/speculative setting. But I'll play any genre if the story smites my fancy. To be honest, it's been a while since I've written consistently, so prepare for some initial awkwardness on my part. But we all have to start somewhere, and I will be practicing! :)

Outside of roleplaying, I love math, teaching myself piano, and lately I've been getting into fitness. I'm currently taking community college courses. Someday I'd like to become a Biomedical Engineering Professor.

Thanks for reading!

Hey Merely,

Welcome (back?) to RPG! Glad to hear you're interested in giving things a more concerted effort this go-round, without letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, so to speak. I've seen a few things pop up in your genres every once in a while, so I'm sure it won't be too long before you've got some good prospects.

If you have any questions as you're going along, feel free to ask. My PM inbox is always open (as you may have guessed already, given your new moniker), and the other members of staff are quite helpful as well, if I'm not around.

And those I have called, they remember,
And they shall endure."

Hi Merely. It's nice to meet you, as you seem to share some of my interests when it comes to roleplaying. Speaking of which, I've pm'ed you with an offer to join an rp if you're interested. Judging by what you listed it sounds like it would be right up your alley. ^o^
