I hear you. It’s not something I can understand easily; my social anxiety isn’t that intense.
I would suggest to you, and others like you, though — if you are going to put yourself in a situation where you must interact with others, such as rp, even selectively, being able to tell people ‘no thank you’ is a place you should push yourself. Yes, it will be hard, god it’ll be hard. But you will not get better without trying, and you’ve already made a huge effort in being a roleplayer at all.
What does 34 act like?
I had totally forgotten I put that in my sidebar, to be honest, until about half an hour later.
That photo is from a shoot in the last couple years, I think. I do know what you mean, though, because she really looks quite different as Ygritte than in almost any other role. I strongly suspect it’s due to the costuming. Gwendolyn Christie has the same effect — she’s quite beautiful when out of costume, but I’d be hard put to call Brienne of Tarth /beautiful/ in a purely cosmetic sense.
I’m just amazingly tired of tumblr people treating online rp as though it’s some kind of solitary pastime. As though it’s somehow different from inviting people to hang out with you in real life, and standing them up or cutting them off or outright ignoring them after they’ve shown up.
Gah, I promised myself I wouldn’t engage with this frustration tonight.
Sorry, nonnie, it’s not you.
… it’s like you’re reading my mind. Were you hiding in my kitchen this afternoon?
You are an unusual anon. I’m keeping you.
That is Rose Leslie. She is best known for her work as Ygritte in Game of Thrones, but appears in small roles in various BBC shows, and has recently appeared in the horror film Honeymoon.
