That indie Bitch is gonna teach you: how to play an asexual character
I've never ever roleplayed with an asexual character, but I've done my research, and a lot of my favorite people are asexual, and I myself am asexual. People always think 'prude' when they hear asexual, they assume it means no sex, no dating, nothing. Well it doesn't. Every one who is asexual is a different type of asexual, and I'm gonna teach you how to roleplay the different types.

I don’t know if anyone has done a guide on this or not but regardless, I decided to make one myself because I have social anxiety too and words don’t even begin to express how much it irritates me when people over-exaggerate or confuse it with something else. With that being said, I wrote this guide in hopes that it’ll help you understand it better and even play your characters a little more realistically.

Every trait has its underlying reasons. In this case, it’s quietness. Just like regular people, characters have inner reasons as to why they choose to be or have to be quiet.  This guide will explore the various reasons why characters are quiet and how to play a quiet character. I will also be giving writing tips on how to play one without resulting in a lack of IC interaction. 
Disclaimer: Quietness is a very broad trait and the reason to each individual is unique. Also, I will not delve into personality theories and types because it’s complicated. I will therefore only be using personal experience and Internet research to compile this guide. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

↳ Hunter’s How To: Writing an Emotionally Detached Character

parrishable-rpc:

image

Emotional detachment can be categorized into two types: the first consists of being able to easily empathize with the emotions of others whereas the second is having difficulties connecting on an emotional level with others. 

This guide will be covering the second type. All information not directly stated by me will be cited in the (x)’s at the end of their respective sections. 

*Created because I was getting sick of emotionally detached characters constantly being RPed as the popular “Troubled but Cute/Broken Bird” tropes often expressed in movies, young adult fiction, and the fantasies of idealistic fourteen year old girls.*

CHARACTER GUIDE ➟ PLAYING A PYROMANIAC.

Pyromania is defined as a pattern of deliberate setting of fires for pleasure or satisfaction, derived from the relief of tension experienced before the fire is set. The term itself comes from two Greek words which mean “fire” and “loss of reason” or “madness.” The clinician’s handbook, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, recognizes pyromania as a disorder of impulse control, meaning that a person diagnosed with pyromania fails to resist the impulsive desire to set fires—as opposed to the organized planning of an arsonist or a terrorist.

As requested, this guide will cover depression, a condition which in my experience, is often portrayed poorly in RP, and fiction in general. I’m not an expert, I’m a third year med student trying to share some of what I know from personal, as well as professional experience, in order to help more of us play what can be a controversial subject, accurately and appropriately. Some people may find the material covered in this post triggering, please use your discretion in reading. If this guide helps you at all please reblog.

Writing a character who:
Cuts
Take note, I do NOT condone cutting in any way, shape, or form. This is not a guide on how to cut yourself, and I put a heavy trigger warning on this post because of it. If blood or blades, or talk of self harm trigger you, then DO NOT PROCEED. This is help on writing characters, not on hurting yourself. If you are considering self-harm, or are using this as a guide on self-harm, please do not. I don’t need a mess on my hands, I just need to straighten out some misconceptions on cutting.
